I Helped Start the Gaza Protests. I Donít Regret It
NY Times ^ | 05/14/2018 | Ahmed Abu Artema

The seed that grew into Gaza’s Great Return March was planted Dec. 9, just a few days after President Trump announced he would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Palestinians long have held onto the dream of Jerusalem as our own capital, or at least as a shared capital in a country that offers equal rights to everyone. --SNIP-- It was not a surprise that Israel responded to our march with deadly violence. But I had not expected this level of cruelty. On the other hand, I was heartened by the commitment to nonviolence among most of my own people.

Muslims never see cruelty on their own side but anything Israel does is wrong? Who is it that cuts people’s heads off? Who was bombing Jerusalem buses shops and restaurants? Israel has bent over backwards and all they got in return was attacks from maniacs.

What’s cruel is Islam’s teachings about Jews — and any other religion than their own. The Israelis are right to want to keep them from crashing their border.

Those weren’t protests, that was an intentional invasion.

Any sovereign country is entitled - under “international law”, as the Palestinians constantly like to scream - to defend itself with force ... that’s all that happened.

But what’s not surprising is that the NY Times and Big Leftist Media continue to offer free space for these liars to spout their propaganda.

Why? Because people allow them to get away with the lies. The “people” probably dislike Jews and Israel so it is easy for them to believe a lie.

Once it is shown for a lie, some will still continue to defend it but many will abandon support. This is why the lies must be exposed.

Admire Israel. They have heroic, virile men who are willing to defend their borders, homes and culture. They are not one world globalists who at their core have no real values.

“Gaza’s Great Return March”

Did they got their idea from the “refugee caravans”?

When I was there in ‘97, I was treated very well by Muslims in Jericho and in Druz Villages near Haifa.
Somewhat well in Bethlehem.
I was told in Jericho by Muslims, “Don’t go to Gaza or get off the road that follows the Jordan River to the Dead Sea”
Also be on your A-Game in the Old City.

Things have not changed.

Am I the only one to notice the disproportionate number of mussulmen that have popped up in our news media since 9/11?

If the Israeli can find this guy, they should poke him with one of Putin’s magic umbrellas and turn him orange

Totalitarianism 101: If I aggressively attack you, and you violently defend yourself, then you are cruel.

Muslims are leftists. That is why the secular globalists love them and use them.

I don’t regret it either. This is how your side loses over and over.

“It was not a surprise that Israel responded to our march with deadly violence. That is what we were hoping for. But I had not expected this level of cruelty.”

These Pali morons went on Arab TV and bragged about how 250,000 pali’s were going to storm the walls, allowing the armed terrorists to get beyond the wall, and published instructions to the fighters on which Israeli’s to kill or capture and take back to Gaza on arabic facebook pages.

How did they THINK the I’s were going to react??
