The Worst Palestinian

Abu Mazen will enter Palestinian history: he will be remembered as one of the worst Palestinians ever. He will be remembered in the same league as the Nashashibis before 1948, who along with the Hashemite royals were on the payroll of the Zionists.

Abu Mazen was an accidental “leader”– if he even can be considered a leader. He, along with Salam Fayyad, have been imposed on the Palestinian people. Prior to Oslo, the PLO succeeded in preventing Israel or Jordan from imposing any Palestinian as representative of the Palestinian people. The PLO succeeded on presenting itself as the “sole legitimate representative” of the Palestinian people, against the wishes of Israel and Jordan. Palestinians who tried to come forward (on behalf of Israeli occupation and the Jordanian monarchy) were either shunned or killed by their people. The PLO succeeded in foiling all schemes that intended to impose alternative (non-representative) Palestinian representatives.

The attempts to circumvent the PLO’s credentials as the representative body of the Palestinian people, were comical.

First, it was the Jordanian king who was supposed to speak on behalf of Palestinians even after he massacred thousands of them in Black September. Then the Israelis organized collaborators in “village leagues”, but the Palestinian people quickly discredited that effort. And then the US stumbled on the amusing mayor of Bethlehem, Ilyas Furayj, and decided that he should speak for the Palestinians. Another time it was the Jerusalemite journalist, Hanna Sanyurah, and on and on.

The quest for an alternative leadership never ceased. The US and Israel never gave up. They just would not settle for a “No” answer from the Palestinian people.

Then came Oslo, where Arafat basically surrendered to the Israeli occupiers. Arafat pretty much gave in to the Israeli negotiators and gave up on the basic demands of the Palestinian national movement. He squandered all the major and minor strengths of the PLO thinking all along that he was outsmarting the Israelis by keeping a small armed militia – not to launch a serious armed struggle against the occupation but to press ahead during negotiations to bolster his posture.

And then came Abu Mazen. The former Mossad director Efraim Halevy admitted in his book, Man in the Shadows, that he invented the post of prime minister to weaken Arafat and to push for a collaborator-in-chief.

Israelis knew Abu Mazen more than other PLO figures. This second-tier figure was not known outside the small circles of Fatah. He was based in Damascus (which explains his silence regarding the killings by the Syrian regime) and thought of himself as a scholar. He was an ill-informed bureaucrat who took his holocaust denials and his belief in a Zionist-Free Mason conspiracy as a sign of deep scholarship.

Abu Mazen also promoted direct negotiations with Israelis not so much because he necessarily liked Israel – after all, he was (and presumably still is) a hater of the Jewish people – but because he argued that Israel would implode from within and that all the Palestinians have to do is to sit back and enjoy the demise.

What Abu Mazen lacked in scholarship, popularity, and charisma he made up with an uncanny ability to give the enemy whatever he asks for.

The interview that Abu Mazen has just given to Israeli TV is an insult to the century-long Palestinian struggle. Abu Mazen decided to speak on behalf of all Palestinians. Finally – after Arafat killed the PLO, and after Arafat signed a deal that establishes a collaborationist regime in Ramallah, and after the Oslo process assigned to Fatah the role of killing other Palestinians on behalf of Israel – Israel succeeded in establishing a Palestinian leader who shares Israeli security and political objectives.

The scheme was simple: the US and Israel decided to starve the Palestinian people and to cut off all sources of funding for Palestinian organizations and to keep all financing in the hands of trusted PA tools, chiefly Abu Mazen and Salam Fayyad (although Muhammad Dahlan and Jibril Rajjub also played similar roles in the past).

If the revolution was supposed to grow out of the barrel of the gun, the anti-revolution passed through the flow of money. Abu Mazen not only controlled the massive PA public sector, but he incorporated the retired fighters in a mini police non-state. Abu Mazen controlled not only Fatah: he was able to fend off secular and nationalist oppositions by dispensing monthly payments to Palestinian organizations.

Arafat gave PLO funding to member organizations even when these organizations were publicly disagreeing with his policies.

Abu Mazen is less secure: funding would be cut off if any organization voiced criticism of his policies. Even the PFLP (especially its branch in the West Bank), became a loyal and subservient opposition group.

The Palestinian people can be faulted for tolerating the leadership of Abu Mazen for too long. There are no concessions left for Abu Mazen to make, so he decides to speak on behalf of the refugees. He sees fit to donate his birthplace of Safad to Israel and says that he only has the right to “see it.”

Abu Mazen forgot that seeing Palestine was not the goal of the Palestinian national movement especially that many Palestinians fought and died on Palestinian lands. They fought to liberate the places and not to visit them like tourists.

Abu Mazen said that he only wishes to visit Safad. Israeli officials gave him the insult that he deserves: they said that they can arrange for him to visit “Israeli” cities. Maybe Abu Mazen can go there and prostrate before the occupiers.

Palestinians leadership historically fell well below the standards of the struggle of the Palestinian people. From Hajj Amin Husayni to Yasser Arafat, Palestinian leadership was incompetent, shifty, dishonest, deceptive, and secretive.

But Abu Mazen is not even a leader.

The accidental leader, who sits in his job (from which his corrupt family draws large sums of money) merely because of US/Israeli will, does not even belong to the list of Palestinian leaders of the 20th century. He should be celebrated by the Zionist movement as one of the clients of Israeli occupation, alongside people like Bashir Gemayel and Antoine Lahd.

"يعني لو حرّر حزب الله فلسطين, لطلعت عليه فرقة الطائفيّون المُحترفون وقالوا: لكنك لم تحرّرْ الإسكندرون ونسيت طمب الصغرى وطمب الكُبرى. "

Umar ibn al-Khattab and Salah ad-Din liberated Palestine and yet that doesn't amount to nothing from the Shi'ite sectarians, nay Umar is accused of being a "coward" and he is held responsible for the establishment of Israel in a book with a flowery introduction by Hezbollah cleric, Afif Nabulsi. The Palestinian resistance in Lebanon, despite its crimes and thuggery, fought bravely against the Zionist invasion, and its resistance wasn't acknowledged by the "mumana'a" who waged many wars against it, so how believable is your charge As'ad when they don't apply this standard to themselves?! Kama tudeen tudaan

" The Palestinian resistance in Lebanon, despite its crimes and thuggery, fought bravely against the Zionist invasion, and its resistance wasn't acknowledged by the "mumana'a" who waged many wars against it, so how believable is your charge As'ad when they don't apply this standard to themselves?!"

Because those Palestinians aren't as sectarian or as religious as kooks like you now, fool! So you think if a Sunni (add pious Shias if you wish) becomes very rigid and pious, Israel will gone because of jihadist war? Hell, Sunni extremists even kill each other because they have to fight for their religious ideology.

"Are you telling me that if Hamdeen Sabahi or the Tunisian leftists were in power, that things would be any different?"

So are you telling me if a Salafis or the Sunni extremists came into power, that they will immediately declare war against Israel? I say yes, the Shias and Iran. They are "Yahudis", right? Shias were Jews and Iran is Israel!!! Yes so the kooks will declare War! Duh, Muslim logic!

"Because those Palestinians aren't as sectarian or as religious as kooks like you now, fool!"

Tell that to their enemies in Lebanon who certainly accused them of such and you accused Hamas of "selling out" in your other post while you snicker about Iran and Hezbollah's total silence on their allies who collaborated with the West. Are the majority of the Palestinians who oppose Bashar, "Zionists" and traitors? Is Hamas more treacherous than Chalabi, Talebani, Karzai and Maliki?

" So you think if a Sunni (add pious Shias if you wish) becomes very rigid and pious, Israel will gone because of jihadist war? Hell, Sunni extremists even kill each other because they have to fight for their religious ideology."

I didn't say that, I said that As'ad because of his ideological hatred, doesn't want to acknowledge that many Islamists fought for the Palestinian cause because it doesn't jibe with the propaganda.

"So are you telling me if a Salafis or the Sunni extremists came into power, that they will immediately declare war against Israel?"

Don't answer a question with another question, typical "mumana'a" charlatan who scurries away like a rat when exposed for his lies".

"I say yes, the Shias and Iran. They are "Yahudis", right? Shias were Jews and Iran is Israel!!! Yes so the kooks will declare War! Duh, Muslim logic!"

Yeah, the blessed Arab Syrian Army is fighting "Yahudis" in Syria and Shaykh Nizar Rayyan and the many Salafis in the Qassam brigades who fought the Zionists are "Yahudis".

Mahmoud Abbas is the Chief Buthelezi of Israeli Apartheid in 17.2% of the West Bank (self-ruled bantustan Area A), which is equivalent to 3.5% of Palestine.

More hypocrites of the "mumana'a"

http://www.elnashra.com/news/show/543441/الجزيرة

Lebanese Shi'ite hypocrites accusing Hamas of "treachery" when many of them and their leaders didn't utter a single word against their "thuwar Nato". Did Hasan Nasrallah and Nabih Berri dare utter a single word against their "thuwar Nato"?

And you always forgot to mention "riding on American tanks", damn you! Hahahahahaha!!!!

Am having flashbacks to Professor Abukhalil's early blog years and the insults (grating but enlightening) that would fly around freely in the comments. Feel moved to explain* what may be cryptic to my fellow English speakers. As I read it, the above comment starting Good post ... but is implying As'ad is favoring the Syrian regime (since that's characterized by sectarians as a pro-Alawi agenda - apparently dead to the irony that it's a secular, leftist agenda Professor Abukhalil brings to these matters - and since Sunnism is not an issue per se in Palestine). Takhween in that context probably refers to the Syrian regime and its supporters calling all opponents traitors, which they do. Finally, what I read is "What an evil bunch you all are, both you and Charles Ayyub (the editor who published a paranoid conspiracy artcile about Dr. Abukhalil) are liars."

*My 2-3 words of Arabic and far-Western heritage, as I was born near the International Date Line, qualify me to do so. CNN says if it's 2 words I can be hired as a producer for MidEast stories and if it's 3 words, an executive producer.

". but is implying As'ad is favoring the Syrian regime (since that's characterized by sectarians as a pro-Alawi agenda - apparently dead to the irony that it's a secular, leftist agenda Professor Abukhalil brings to these matters - and since Sunnism is not an issue per se in Palestine)."

I didn't he say that he favours the Syrian regime but that he is applying double standards because of his sectarian background and loyalty while at the same time denying this which clearly is a lie, and clearly you aren't familiar with sectarian dynamics in the Arab world to say that he is just applying a "secular leftist agenda" to these matters. An example of this is not once mentioning Hezbollah's media declaring all of the Syrian opposition "traitors" from day one of the uprising when they were totally silent on their allies in Afghanistan and Iraq. Secondly, the Palestinian cause isn't a monopoly for As'ad as it seems he claims for himself nor are they obliged to accept his agenda or the "Resistance" sectarian agenda were Hamas is considered more treacherous than the likes Karzai, Chalabi or Jalal Talebani

Good post As'ad but your sincerity for the Palestinian cause is tempered by wanting to attach your agenda to it and you and your hypocritical takhween and anti-Sunni sectarianism are unwanted in Palestine, so keep dreaming of coming to Palestine after it is liberated.

http://angryarab.blogspot.ca/2012/11/my-real-name-is-ahmad-abu-awdah.html

Ba'sakum baynakum shadeed, both you and Charlatan Ayoub are liars.

The sectarian AU is so boring. Of course, he has nothing of value to say, so he is just repeating his sectarian nonsense.

If I'm boring, you and your ilk's hypocritical takhween are tedious and the real sectarian nonsense is the hypocrites of the "Resistance" who make takhween of all those who oppose Bashar when most of them including Hezbollah and Iran were totally silent on their "thuwar Nato" and the latest howler from them is that Hamas is more treacherous then Chalabi, Karzai, Maliki and Talebani. Are the majority of the Palestinians who oppose Bashar, "Zionists" and traitors?

Abu Umar, I love it when you Salafizers rant about Hezbollah and Iran. So you have deep trouble with us and As'ad bashing the Sunni Islamist. But what's the funniest joke is that you claimed that Sunni Islamist are much more "democratic" than "hypocrite" seculars and non-Shias. I must give you this 9.5/10 for worst political joke ever. And please don't expect us to believe your lies about "Sunni Islamist condemn dictator Al Su'ud" when you can't even believe on us.

By the way, secular sectarianism is ALWAYS and FOREVER better than Salafi or Shia sectarianism crap. You need medical checkup from your enemy Hezbollah.

I won't stop ranting until the hypocrites of the "Resistance" go blue in the face and your damn right I have "deep trouble" with the "Resistance", their support of Bashar and their hypocritical takhween while they were totally silent on their own thuwar Nato. and As'ad, his sectarian lies, hypocritical takwheen and his denial of his sectarianism. Secondly, nowhere did I claim that Sunni Islamists are more democratic than secularists, I said why don't you mention why the Iranian regime, Amal and Hezbollah has opposed them over the years.

". And please don't expect us to believe your lies about "Sunni Islamist condemn dictator Al Su'ud" when you can't even believe on us."

Who cares what you have to say, what matters is the reality on the ground, here is Mohammed an-Nimr:

http://english.al-akhbar.com/content/mohamed-al-nimr-it%E2%80%99s-about-...

"Nimr explained that there are tens of thousands of Salafi detainees in prisons. They were saying, “How could you allow this rafidhi [“rejectionist”/Shia] to remain free and throw us into prison.”

Many of them opposed the treachery of the Saudi regime unlike the hypocrites of the "Resistance".

"By the way, secular sectarianism is ALWAYS and FOREVER better than Salafi or Shia sectarianism crap."

So when Haytham al-Manna' and Nabeel al-Fayyad are deported to Iran, you and As'ad can join them to preach your leftist ideals in Iran, I'll give you a few days before you wind up in an Iranian dungeon.

" You need medical checkup from your enemy Hezbollah."

Tell them to send better propagandists.

"Many of them opposed the treachery of the Saudi regime"

Ikhwanites and moderate "Salafis" who did "oppose" the Saudi regime? Give me a break! Not to even mention the hypocrisy of backing the Bahraini regime.

"So when Haytham al-Manna' and Nabeel al-Fayyad are deported to Iran, you and As'ad can join them to preach your leftist ideals in Iran, I'll give you a few days before you wind up in an Iranian dungeon."

Dungeon? Maybe you should come out with the word "Safavid dungeon"? I have better idea, why not YOU and the Salafist travel to Nejd instead? I bet a 7-star drinking alcohol Salafiyah hotel service will be ready for you. Perfect for munafiqs like you.

"Tell them to send better propagandists."

Like I said in the previous comment, please take more propaganda from the House of Saud before arguing with me. I know you are crying that the House of Saud is on the verge of crumbling when those families started to fight each other. You NEED them to fight Iran. You need Sunnah power, and your Saudi and Qatari master gave you the Sunni power. And now your command is to fight athiest and Shias.

http://english.al-akhbar.com/content/mohamed-al-nimr-it%E2%80%99s-about-...

"Ikhwanites and moderate "Salafis" who did "oppose" the Saudi regime? Give me a break! Not to even mention the hypocrisy of backing the Bahraini regime."

Tens of thousands of them did oppose the treachery of the Saudi regime and were thown in Saudi dungeons as mentioned by Nimr an-Nimr's brother who certainly isn't a friend of them, who cares whether you accept this, what matters is the reality on the ground and the Bahraini uprising has nothing to do with what we were talking about and many of the Bahrani opposition supported the Assadi and Iranian regimes nor did As'ad judge their "mumana'a" when they didn't utter a single word against their thuwar Nato. This proves that the takhween of the "Resistance" and likes of As'ad are full of hypocrisy. Take your hypocritical takhween to Hezbollah and Iran who didn't utter a single word towards their thuwar Nato.

"Dungeon? Maybe you should come out with the word "Safavid dungeon"?"

I like the tune of that. There were and are thousands of Iranian leftists in "Safavid dungeons", something the Arab leftists who are allied to the "Resistance" never talk about just like As'ad never mentioned the hypocrisy of the leaders of the Bahrani and Qatifi uprisings who support the Iranian regime. Why don't you and the rest of the "Resistance" secularists like Nabeel al-Fayyadh and Haytham al-Manna' who defend the secular nature of the Assadi regime go to Iran and preach their leftist credentials and see how fast you wind up in a "Safavid dungeon".

" I have better idea, why not YOU and the Salafist travel to Nejd instead? I bet a 7-star drinking alcohol Salafiyah hotel service will be ready for you. Perfect for munafiqs like you."

Keep snickering you thug, I won't turn the other cheek towards your hypocritical takwheen. In the Arab world and Arabic culture, to declare someone a traitor is one of the biggest insults, and even the biggest traitors in the Arab world like King Abdullah of Saudi, Dhahi Khalfan of the Emirati regime and Nouri al-Maliki have declared their enemies "Zionists". Iran and Hezbollah, have been engaged along with the Assadi regime in declaring everybody who opposes the Bashar as a traitor for the West when they didn't utter a single word against their allies who rode to power on American tanks in Afghanistan and Iraq proving their hypocrisy and inconsistency. This is why many of them are declaring Hamas as "traitors" while Chalabi, Karzai, Maliki and Talebani are from the "Resistance".

Wait! You forgot to mention about American tanks! Let me tell you something. Secular sectarianism is BETTER than Sunni sectarianism, like it or not.

Keep snickering, and if that is a joking matter to you, than tell your ilk to stay silent with their takhween instead of accusing Hamas of being more treacherous than Chalabi, Maliki, Karzai and Jalal Talebani. As for sectarianism, I wasn't discussing which is better but why As'ad hypocritically denies his sectarianism when he accuses many Arab secularists of being sectarian, forgetting himself.

"Keep snickering, and if that is a joking matter to you, than tell your ilk to stay silent with their takhween instead of accusing Hamas of being more treacherous than Chalabi, Maliki, Karzai and Jalal Talebani."

Maybe you can begin first by telling how Hamas being a "Sunni Islamist" is going to sell out Gaza Strip towards their Qatari master. Oh wait, this must be a "tactical jihadist ambush" against the Zionist, right? Woo, that must be interesting. It's so even interesting until the Muslims even kill each other in the name of jihad sabililah.

"I wasn't discussing which is better but why As'ad hypocritically denies his sectarianism when he accuses many Arab secularists of being sectarian, forgetting himself."

Hey, Wahhabiyah. This is why I said just now, "Secular sectarianism is much better than your pathetic Salafi sectarianism", get it? Did you pray to your dead Wahhabiyah sheikh everyday? I bet you even kept a statue of him urging to kill Shias and athiest.

If Hamas is guilty of taking money from Qatar, guilt by association, than why aren't Hezbollah and Iran's allies, thuwar Nato in Afghanistan and Iraq, guilty of taking billions from the West, who brought them to power and cemented their rule, and why were Iran and Hezbollah totally silent on this and why aren't they tarred with the same guilt by association as Hamas is with Qatar. Secondly, the Palestinian people don't lessons in self-criticism on these matters from the hypocrites of the "Resistance" as many Palestinians confronted the Palestinian quislings who collaborated with the British and Zionists from the time of the 1936 revolt until our time and they won't stay silent if Hamas capitulates.

"Hey, Wahhabiyah. This is why I said just now, "Secular sectarianism is much better than your pathetic Salafi sectarianism", get it? Did you pray to your dead Wahhabiyah sheikh everyday? I bet you even kept a statue of him urging to kill Shias and athiest."

Good for you and your supposed superiority which I wasn't arguing about. Zionists have been proclaiming their superiority over the "savage" Palestinians for decades, good for them, that doesn't change the equation of the Palestinian cause, why should the Palestinians give up their homeland which was occupied by the Zionists. Also, Yasari al-Afin, why don't you go preach gay rights and gay pride parades in Sour, Bint-Jbail, Nabatiyyeh and Dhahiyyeh, to prove your "bonafide" leftism.
