Happy Eidul Adha to All of You
By Khalid Amayreh
PIC, November 22, 2010
Like every year, the occurrence of Eidul Adha or Feast of
Sacrifice this year coincides with a further narrowing of
Palestinians' horizons. The manifestly racist Israeli government is
relentlessly trying to translate its Nazi-like ideology into laws and
facts on the ground, with its ultimate nefarious goal being to ethnically
cleanse and drive away non-Jews into exile..
international community is doing nearly nothing to stop this insolence and
arrogance of power on the part of the ghoulish Israeli regime.
This cowardly international stance is reminiscent to the policy of
appeasement which major western powers adopted vis-à-vis Nazi Germany in
the years leading up to the outbreak of the Second World War.
United States, which should display responsibility at least in proportion
to its international standing as a super power, is behaving very much like
an obsequious mighty whore vis-à-vis Israel, thus enabling the satanic
Zionist regime to dictate American policy, not only toward the helpless
Palestinians, but toward the entire Muslim world.
For sure, there
will come a day when America will pay dearly for her key role in
inflicting oppression on the Palestinians and other peoples of the Middle
East. God may not throw stones at the oppressors and their accomplices;
but the Almighty has other ways to establish justice and punish the
The same thing can be said about Britain, and other
powers that enable Ashkenazi Jews to dispossess Palestine from
its rightful proprietors, kill them, and disperse them to the four corners
of the globe.
Today, the Eidul Adha occurs as arrogant Israel
continues to build more illegitimate colonies on occupied Palestinian
land. This is very much an act of rape as it is done in violation of
international law. This means that the Palestinian goal, which is also the
goal of the rest of the world, of establishing a viable and
territorially contiguous Palestinian state in the West Bank is becoming
unrealistic and virtually impossible.
This fact is nowhere more
affronting than in Jerusalem where Israel is hell-bent trying to
obliterate the remaining vestiges of the Arab-Islamic civilization and
Unfortunately, the Palestinian Authority, which serves
very much as a subcontractor for the Israeli occupation authorities, is
still clutching to a chronically moribund peace process that has no
promise, neither for peace, nor for justice, a process that serves only as
a rubric for Israel to liquidate the Palestinian cause if only by
devouring the remaining un-colonized land in the West Bank.
Unfortunately, the PA can't be entrusted to safeguard Palestinian national
interests given the moral and political bankruptcy of its leaders. In the
final analysis, one can't give what one doesn't have.
announcement by some PLO leaders that they would be willing to recognize
Israel as an exclusively Jewish state as well as the tacit willingness by
PA president Mahmoud Abbas to give up the right of return, constitute a
clarion proof that the PLO is a bankrupt entity that doesn't deserve the
status or stature of being the sole representative of the Palestinian
In the final analysis, an organization that is basking in
the luxurious hotels in Ramallah, in the shadow of Israeli tanks, can not
really express or reflect the collective conscience and enduring vigor of
the Palestinian people.
Indeed, an organization whose money
lifeline starts in Washington, is unfit to express the beating hearts of
Palestinians in Burj el Barajneh, or Jabalya, or al-Khalil.
the less, we must never ever think of giving up or giving in. After all,
our cause is just and our grievances are real. There are more than five
million Palestinians still implanted in our homeland like deep-rooted
olive trees. We must cling further and further to the homeland and
demonstrate to the Zionists that no matter what they do to us, we shall
Moreover, our enemy, while amassing all the elements
of material power, is suffering from a moral breakdown.
moral deterioration, which is unseen and unfelt by an enemy intoxicated by
its hubris, insolence, and arrogance of power, shall eventually bring the
Zionist regime to its ultimate demise. Such is the destiny of all arrogant
wrongdoers throughout history.
This may take some years to happen,
but its inevitability is assured.
On this holy occasion, we
Palestinians must take a lesson from the life of the Prophet Muhammed (may
peace be upon him) who suffered so much at Shii'b Abee Taleb, who
miraculously escaped assassination, who was poisoned, and who was forced
to flee his own country as a refugee, very much like the millions of our
people who were scattered around the world because they didn't belong to
the "holy tribe."!!
But the Prophet eventually triumphed over all
the odds, despite the paucity of resources at his disposal and the
overwhelming power of his enemies. And in a few years, he was able to
build a huge state extending from China to the Atlantic.
Alhamdullillah, the Palestinian people must never feel that they are the
victim of a merciless history, although this is exactly the impression one
would get from reviewing the annals of the Palestinian plight.
Holy Quran clearly and in stunning details predicts the ingathering of
Jews into Palestine. It also predicts and describes the mighty arrogance
of the state of Israel. But, likewise, the Holy Book predicts and gives
the glad tidings that Israel's end is near.
"….. Then, when the
second promise came to pass, (We permitted your enemies) to savage your
faces and enter the mosque (of Jerusalem ) as they had entered it before,
and to visit with utter destruction all that they have built up." (v.7,
