Ahmed Erekat was not the primary Palestinian to be killed by the Israeli occupation forces in chilly blood, nor will he be the final to be killed “as a result of he tried to assault” them. The younger man was shot useless as he helped his sister together with her wedding ceremony preparations. As a substitute of the bride rejoicing, the Zionists turned her wedding ceremony right into a funeral for your entire Erekat household, and all Palestinians.
Heinous crimes like this are dedicated frequently, and the Israelis and their supporters attempt to justify them whenever. They inform their pre-packaged “self-defence” claims to the world; defend their presence on occupied land and declare to be preventing in opposition to anti-Semitic terrorists who deny the Jewish individuals a homeland in Israel. They kill and displace the indigenous individuals after which justify their despicable prison acts with out batting an eyelid. Amazingly, the world not solely believes them but in addition sympathises with them, as if they’re the victims as a substitute of the individuals they’re killing and displacing. It’s a cowardly world that sees with just one eye; a world with no conscience that helps the criminals on the expense of the victims. The Zionists are expert at mendacity and deceiving the individuals; it has turn into a key a part of the Zionists’ code of conduct. Their occupation itself relies upon the lie that Palestine was “a land with no individuals for a individuals with no land”.
Oh, and that it was promised to them by a God which most Israelis not apparently consider in. A ballot reported by Haaretz claimed in 2018 that “solely 30 per cent of Israelis say they’re non secular”. However, that doesn’t cease Zionists in Israel from quoting rabbis who incite in opposition to the Palestinians, who’re known as “gentiles”. Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, who died in 2013, was a “revered halachic scholar,” reported the Occasions of Israel, who was “additionally identified for some problematic statements about Jews, Arabs, People and others.” On making peace with Arabs he stated in August 2000, “How are you going to make peace with a snake?” The aim of “Goyim [gentiles],” he stated in 2010, “…is to serve us. With out that, they don’t have any place — solely to serve the Individuals of Israel.”

Whereas the Zionists view the land of Palestine from a paradoxically non secular but not non secular perspective, we discover the puppet Palestinian Authority of Mahmoud Abbas and his pro-Oslo gang, which was created solely to guard Israel and its occupation, pursuing and arresting each Palestinian who views the problem from an Islamic perspective. The PA is hostile in the direction of the Islamic Resistance Motion — Hamas — in Gaza and incites the world in opposition to it. The PA even informs the occupation authorities about Hamas resistance efforts and members, and arrests them. The break up between Hamas and Fatah, which controls the PA, tears the social cloth aside, spreading hatred and animosity.
Whereas the PA dotes on the Palestinians within the West Financial institution, it deprives these within the Gaza Strip of their most simple human rights, similar to entry to training, well being, electrical energy, water and extra. It additionally deprives Gaza of the tax revenues and support donated by pleasant states. Abbas, whose time period of workplace truly expired in 2009, has been enjoying a unclean position within the Israeli-led siege imposed on Gaza since 2006, when Hamas defeated Fatah in free and honest elections. Troublesome as it’s to grasp, the Zionists advise their agent Abbas to not intensify the siege on Gaza in such a extreme method that the scenario explodes and turns in opposition to them.
Having betrayed his homeland and the Palestinian individuals, this traitor and his treacherous posse have destroyed the spirit of collective motion and cooperation in opposition to the Israeli occupation, as was as soon as the norm. They’ve changed the belief and confidence that when unfold between all Palestinians with mutual suspicion. They’ve even destroyed the morality of the individuals.
The PA underneath Abbas has not been content material with what he calls “sacred” safety coordination with Israel, however has additionally stripped the West Financial institution of its capacity to withstand the occupation. It is aware of that its existence is linked to the continuation of the occupation, a lot in order that if the Israelis determined to finish it, the treacherous PA would in all probability beg them to remain. The authority is definitely an integral a part of the occupation which suppressed protests in opposition to Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem because the capital of Israel and the choice to annex the West Financial institution by way of the so-called deal of the century.
Nevertheless, though there has not been any tangible response from the Palestinians on the bottom thanks largely to the PA’s collaboration with Israel, the flame of resistance continues to be burning within the hearts of the Palestinians. Neither Abbas nor can anybody else extinguish it. The day will come when the flames will burn the Oslo Accords and remove the delusional, invalid and colluding PA, and switch in opposition to the usurper occupier in order that the land of Palestine can be returned to its rightful homeowners, the Palestinians.
Such is the collusion of the Palestinian Authority with the Zionist entity that Mahmoud Abbas and his Oslo individuals have to just accept that the extrajudicial execution of Ahmed Erekat was carried out protected within the information that they’d not do something aside from pay lip-service to condemnation and condolences. For that motive alone, it’s exhausting to conclude something besides that the killing was carried out with their blessing.
