A Battle Cry Seldom Heard These Days: The Palestinian Cause

DAKAR, Senegal — When terrorists in Africa delivered two devastating attacks last month, they invoked a battle cry seldom heard in recent militant activity on the continent: the Palestinian cause.

The gunmen in a hotel complex in Kenya and a military installation in Mali were lauded by Al Qaeda’s central leadership, which praised its branches in Somalia and Mali for the deadly attacks.

“We emphasize and appreciate the high efforts and beautiful words of all the vibrant jihadist work to prevent the Judaization of Palestine,” a statement from the group’s leaders said, according to SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors online extremist content.

The rallying cry, thousands of miles away from where the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is playing out, was ordered up by Ayman al-Zawahri, the head of Al Qaeda who late last year reiterated calls for the group’s franchises to target Zionists.

Major terrorist activities by Qaeda branches in sub-Saharan Africa in recent years seem motivated by other causes, security analysts said. They were intended to expand into new territory, lash out at Western military action or remind the world of Al Qaeda’s relevance as global powers focused on its headline-grabbing rival, the Islamic State.

2. muslims hate Jews, just like many Democrats.

Hatred and bigotry against Jews is nor a rallying cry, it is a mark of shame.

9. Once you go there you realize that Israel is not the problem

It is wealthy zealots giving money to Hamas and others to attack Israel.

4. The Palestinians have pretty well messed their own beds so badly it does not matter

The devout throw money their way now and then when things are slow so they can say they are fighting the Jews, but that is about all their is.

5. So what is it you suggest be done with them, total eradication? Sounds like that's
where your heading?

Gas chambers or overly expensive bullets???

At least their "remains" can be dumped into the sea sparing the costs of the crematoriums, eh?

10. I did not alert and had I been asked, would not vote to hide

Nothing in your questions are violations of the TOS.

You are quite wrong, but that is another issue entirely

8. I will answer the questions here, though considering the source, they may well be just trolling.

The Palestinians are not a real nation or even a people. They are mostly Jordanians, whom Jordan was glad to be rid of with the West Bank. Those in Gaza were never given status as Egyptians either, especially after Yasser Arafat started with his nonsense. Today, particularly in Gaza, mostly they are proxies for wealthy Muslims to send money and arms to so they attack Israel.

The best answer is clearly the single state solution, a return to the something like the 1948 borders of Israel. Arabs as a people and all religions get a fair shake in Israel, more so than in any other country in the region. They would clearly do best as part of Israel.

The two state solution is clearly a worse option since there is not enough there to be viable, even if they were able to find a stable government. The latter has eluded them for years with no viable prospects on the horizon.

Mostly they need to start valuing human lives, including their own people and quit attacking Israel. Egypt learned that and is doing well. Hamas, not so much. If there is a loss of external financial support, that would greatly help, but there are always enough rich diehards to keep Hamas and the other radicals funded.

So no, I don't want them dead or eliminated. I want them to mature and learn to behave. No other nation has their "neighbor" whom they give support to, rocketing them on a regular basis.

For the record, I lived in the middle east for a while, when mom was assigned there. I have seen the squalor, the corruption, and bullshit that comes with being religiously driven. It is a life lesson you do not soon forget.

11. The Palestinians are not a real nation or even a people???.

Full stop. Read enough. Are the Jews too not a "real people" too?

Where the fuck do you people come from and who the hell raised you to think you can determine who is or is not "real people"?

Good Lord Jesus, clean up this madness soon!

14. They are not a distinct grouping of people...

Nothing identifies them or separates them from their neighbors other than geography. Even the two parts (Gaza and West Bank) do not particularly align well with each other. There is nothing compelling that says they should be their own nation state. Even now they are effectively governed by two different groups which reject each others authority.

18. Most forget that until 1967 when Israel captured them

Gaza and the West bank were not Palestine but territory of Egypt and Jordan!

16. Sorry, Dude (?)

but if the Israelis ever were to leave Israel, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and Jordan would begin moving in the next day to reclaim their former territory. The "Palestinians" would be pushed aside, as they always have been, by their muslim "brothers". Most who call themselves "Palestinians" are regarded as "less than" by the others.

17. His Daughter is correct

The Palestinians are not an ethnic people like the French, or Egyptian or German etc.

They never had a nation nor a capital city.

There has never been a nation called Palestine. After the Romans began the final stage of the diaspora in the 130's A.D. they renamed Israel Syria Palestinia. It wasn't until the the 1940's thart the people were no longer being called Arabs and started being called Palestinians.

According to Arafat himself, the definiti0on of a Palestinian is one who lived in the land prior to 1948! So that means many Jews are Palestinians.

15. They have always said they want to eradicate the Jews

But for a while it was not mentioned publicly. Having a harder time suppressing that today
