Remember that idiotic post that was going around hailing Gal Gadot’s casting as Wonder Woman because she’s a “woman of color”? 

She’s Israeli, she’s as woman of color as Wonder Woman can get. A black Wonder Woman would not be the original Wonder Woman.

Omg, this is your ask?

Can you be any more obvious? Look, I understand you need to earn that paycheck, but this is way too flagrant.

Tip: First of all, nobody other than westerners and Israelis say “The Hamas”. You will not find a single Palestinian that says “The Hamas”.

Second of all, your story needs work. Not convincing in the slightest, rework your plot line, the climax was also lackluster.

Third, did you really think this would work? Like seriously? When you came up with the weaksauce ask, did you seriously think to yourself “damn this is a great ass story”?

How stupid do you think people are?

Go think about your life. No, I’m serious. Ask yourself, if your cause was  true, would you need to make up lies about it?

You know, ‘Nadia’ if you’re going to intentionally use terrible English grammar to pretend to be Palestinian, you might also want to misspell a few words. I give you a C at best for this poor attempt. Step up your game if you wanna get your paycheck from the Israeli Ministry of Propaganda.

P.S. ditch the Arabic سلام at the end, it’s not doing you any favors.

This is what happens when you outsource your propaganda operations to teenagers.

After yesterday, the 15th day of the massacre of Gaza, the death count stood at 695, an average of 46 Palestinians murdered per day. Today 102 people were killed, including those who had taken refuge in a UN shelter. The figures have now jumped to 797 and 49 per day. 

I know statisticking Palestinian deaths is macabre and inappropriate, but it’s really the only way I have been able to make sense of what’s happening to my people. For the last 16 days, Israel has killed an average of 49 Palestinians everyday, all of them civilians and the vast majority of them unarmed. UNRWA also reported today that for the past two days Israel has killed one Palestinian child every hour. This is the horror that they live. This is why the people of Gaza fight back.

In 2009 and 2012, when the last two massacres of Gaza took place, Palestinians in the West Bank — and beyond the West Bank, to be fair — did not protest as loudly as they should have, mainly because the Palestinian Authority led by Mahmoud Abbas made sure to clamp down on any sign of unrest. This is the function of the PA as the subsidiary of the Israeli occupation machine. This time, however, after 5 years of no progress despite countless hours of negotiation with the Israeli occupiers and in the face of yet another Gaza massacre, the PA seems to have lost control.

The 48K march (Maan fwiw is reporting more 10,000 protesters — the number 48 represents 1948, the year of the Nakba) is the largest protest that the West Bank has seen in years. And the Israeli response was predictable. As pax-arabica who took part in it reported, no one was armed, but the occupation soldiers killed three Palestinians and injured scores more anyway. The reality is that should this protest develop into a wider uprising against Israeli oppression, there are more deaths to come. 

Despite this barbaric onslaught of zionist aggression, in which entire families are exterminated in one second and people exercising their political rights are cut down, the Palestinian people are remaining steadfast صامدين. Even as our hearts break for their pain, I and so many other Palestinians in the exiled diaspora are so proud and in awe of their strength.

As the grandson of a Palestinian Arab and as the son of a family who has been displaced many times by strife in the Middle East, this issue is very close to my heart. But I also think that we must sympathize with the Israelis who are also under attack by Hamas. This is not a one-sided genocide; this is a war between a terrorist organization and a Jewish state whose casualties are mostly civilians.

I am pro-Palestine. I am in favor of the Palestinians regaining their state and once again having sovereignty over their nation, alongside Israel.

I am not in favor of Hamas. I am not in favor of the genocide of the Israelis. I do not agree with terrorist attacks that target civilians, which is how Hamas operates. I am horrified that the bombs and militants are located in civilian areas so that Israeli military forces have no choice but to target innocents in order to protect their own people.

Literally shut the fuck up.


redphilistine:

The Israelis’ prime suspects turn out to not be acting under Hamas orders. They even now admit that if Hamas leadership had ordered it, they would have known about it in advance — meaning they knew that Hamas had nothing to do with it. But they went on the violent spree throughout the West Bank anyway, and then moved to Gaza to kill 832 Palestinians, injures thousands, and displace over 150,000 (as of now). 

This whole thing was a cynical ploy from start to finish to derail the unity government. They’re exterminating entire families because of their political goals. 

The Israelis are the scum of the earth.

Anonymous asked:
Where do Afro Palestinians fit in with the struggle? They also face racism from other Palestinians and are often not considered Palestinian enough nor that they have the right to be in the land despite many of them being in the country since the Islamic conquest. What is their position and who is rallying for their rights?

ard-al-burtuqal:

First, Afro-Palestinian have always fitted in the Palestinian anti-colonial struggle for national liberation they participate in resistance and mobilizations against the occupation. The first Palestinian woman to organize a commando operation in “israel” was Fatima Bernawi and she is Afro-Palestinian.I don’t know where you got that Afro-Palestinians “don’t have the right to be on the land” they are indigenous to the land just as any Palestinian. I suggest you look at these links to resources i provided below to learn more about the community and their struggles and aspirations.

A beautiful gesture from Lebanon - names of Palestinians killed by Israel in the last two weeks were hung on huge banners in Raouché, Beirut during a demonstration against the latest Zionist assault on Gaza, July 22, 2014. Protesters also threw flowers into the sea. Over 600 people have been killed (as of the morning of July 23, 2014), at least 25% of whom were children.
