What will happen next? Will Palestinian kids be duped to play music to Israeli pilots who exterminated Gaza children with White Phosphorus?

By Khalid Amayreh in Occupied East Jerusalem

It is really hard to write on this subject without getting angry. We all know the extent to which Israel can be evil and satanic. After all, we Palestinians have been on the receiving end of Israeli savagery for decades.

In fact, being thoroughly tormented and killed by the children, grand-children and great grandchildren of the holocaust has always been and continues to be “the” Palestinians’ way of life.

However, for some Palestinians to allow themselves to be duped to sing and play music to their oppressors and child-killers is simply beyond the pale of human dignity.

It is at least as insulting and humiliating as some Jews were forced or duped to play music to SS, Gestapo and Wehrmacht soldiers during the Second World War. In both cases, the act was meant to humiliate the victims and rob them of the last visages of human dignity.

And now, Jews in Israel are doing the same thing to Palestinians, Nazism’s vicarious victims.

Last week, a few innocent kids from the Jenin refugee camp were surreptiously taken to Tel Aviv to “cheer up and take part in peace-promoting activities.”

However, once there the kids were unceremoniously driven to a reception where they were made to play music and sing to “holocaust survivors,” some of them are former members of the Hagana and Irgun terrorist gangs who had taken part in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine and expulsion of Palestinians form their homeland.

God knows how much Palestinian blood did these so-called “holocaust survivors” shed in 1948 and subsequent years. Certainly, Dir Yasin, Tantura, Dawaymeh, and the numerous other massacres were not committed by UFOs. They were committed in cold blood by these very people our children

are now cheering up.

Shame on us a thousand times!

Some of the innocent kids were instructed to utter words that should never be uttered by the victims of Zionism. But the kids apparently felt they had to say anything they were asked to say in order to show gratitude for the Jewish “peace contractor” who got them out of the ghetto, otherwise known as Jenin refugee camp, even for a six-our outing in Tel Aviv.

I am not against showing genuine sympathy with the victims of the holocaust. However, a sympathy that is manipulated to justify, rationalize or even extenuate the crime against humanity that is Israel is worse than a crime if only because it serves to promote and perpetuate oppression.

As human beings, we Palestinians do sympathize with all victims of Nazism, Stalinism and imperialism, the wept, the over-wept, and especially the unwept who constitute the vast majority of victims.

Having said that, however, I strongly believe that no honest person under the sun has the slightest right to demand that we pay the price for what the Nazis did or may have done to European Jews nearly 70 years ago.

We didn’t send Jews to the ovens. The German did. We didn’t starve Jews to death as Jews are doing to us today in the Gaza Strip.

We didn’t incinerate Jews in Gas chambers as Jews have recently incinerated Palestinian children with White Phosphorus.

Hence, of all people in this world, Palestinians must never be made to feel guilty for what the Nazis and other Europeans did to Jews. I say so because a feeling of guilt, even a modicum of guilt, on our part, would be construed or misconstrued as a vindication of Zionism, the Nazism of our time.

There are additional reasons that make the latest insensitive manipulation of Palestinian suffering especially ugly and dishonorable.

First, nearly all the young musicians who were taken to Tel Aviv came from the Jenin Refugee camp. For those who have forgotten, this is the very same refugee camp that Israeli tanks pulverized in 2002.

According to eyewitnesses, Israeli tanks and bulldozers destroyed homes right on top of innocent civilians, including the physically handicapped, while dozens of innocent civilians were systematically massacred, very much like Jews were at Ghetto Warsaw. The massacre at the camp was so hideous that Israel refused to allow UN officials to access the camp to inspect what happened.

Well, again the Nazi analogy is inescapable. Just imagine surviving Jewish children from Treblinka or Bergen Belsen made to sing to SS soldiers.!!

Second, the disgraceful concert in Tel Aviv comes on the heel of Israel’s genocidal assault in Gaza where Israeli warplanes showered the children, women and men of coastal enclave with White Phosphorus and other missiles and bombs of death while Israeli Jews were gleefully celebrating the “victory on Hamas” and Israeli rabbis preoccupied with classifying gentiles into “children of light” and “children of darkness.”

In Gaza, the Zionist Jews exposed their shame to all the people of the world by acting like primitive barbarians and murderous savages.

Hence, the utter shamefulness of sending Palestinian children to Tel Aviv to help Israel’s hasbara efforts whitewash Israel’s pornographic barbarianism in Gaza.

Finally, it is obvious that the PA bears much of the blame for this disgraceful event. The PA should never allow so called “cultural exchanges” and “cultural normalization” with the murderers of our children, the very state whose leaders and military commanders view us as “scum, vermin and animals” that ought to be exterminated.

Unfortunately, the PA itself encourages some demoralized Palestinians to endear themselves to Israel, even in the cheapest of manners.

The often cordial meetings and exchanging of kisses between Mahmoud Abbas and Ehud Olmert, the butcher of Gaza, leave one and only impression, not only on the children of the refugee camp in Jenin, but also on TV viewers around the world.

Perhaps the Israel artillery and war planes were showering Gaza with candy, not White Phosphorus.!!!

This is probably the main message the organizers of the Jenin-Tel Aviv tour wanted to communicate to these miserable kids who are obviously having a hard time recognizing their fathers’ killers.

    Only Yeshua and Yahweh can redeem Israel now, because they are too far gone from the light to be redeemed by themselves or any other part of mankind. It is like the days of Jeroboam and Ahab all over again.

    Israel is a genocidal, terrorist state, this is now obvious to any observer.

    The world should focus on the Holocaust Israel is committing NOW and consider the past holocaust only because it drove Israel quite insane.

    Stop funding terrorist Israel. Stop enabling them to commit a Holocaust TODAY.

    The propaganda film “Playing For Time” is sickeningly similar.

    By the way, Rachel Corrie, the 23 year old peace activist, was
    killed on March 16, 2003, when she was crushed by a zionist
    bulldozer on the Gaza Strip, defending Palestinian Rights. She
    was a gentle, yet brave, young Woman. We must never forget.

    Those Israelis sure are kicking a lot of Palestinian butt for what the Germans did to them more than 60 years ago.

    I believe this is the reason the Orthodox jews believe that God had forbidden the jews from having a homeland, that they should have to wander until God himself returns to gather them together for himself.

    these zionist are crossing all lines
    wait till the muslims recoil.

    ummah will again conquer this soil.

    I don’t agree with the comments about Germans and Europeans throwing Jews into ovens….

    The Jews weren’t alive….they were already dead….they did this to combat plague within the concentration camps…and that was from 1941 to 1945…

    What Jews do, is unleash “the fires of hell”, from the air, upon living Palestinians…in the largest Concentration Camp ever known to Humanity….from 1948 to Present.

    Shame on Isra-Hell!

    Palestine Forever!

    The West is Held Hostage by Political Action Commitees that finance “Puppets”

    For the masses of ignorant folks all over the World…Employ REAL “Counter-Terrorism” Methods…


    Political Apathy = Government Rule By Tyranny!

    Everybody who pays taxes in a G-10 Developed Country, is a Terrorist….whether you know it or not…

    Israel receives the highest amount of “Foreign Relief”….money used to make it the World’s 4th Largest Military….It is a not a Member of the NPT…. Iran is…

    Money used to Slaughter Innocent Men, Women and Children and rob them of their Land.

    We Need more General Pattons and McArthurs….not Eisenhowers!

    The Isreali racist butchers have no connection whatsoever to the Jews of the time of Moses and Abraham. These ‘jews’ are Ashkanazi converts from the 8th century who took up the Babylonian Talmud of the Pharisees…they are followers of the Pharisees, namely liars and hypocrites. Christ identified them as Satan’s followers, as they are to this day. What else can we expect from these people. Their only salvation will be true pennance and conversion to Christianity, as we Christians are indeed ‘God’s Chosen People.” As Christ said, “By their fruits you shall know them.”

    There is only one thing that needs to be stated: Israel is an illegal creation.Consequently,it should be demolished.By Israel, as every literate person would know, reference is made to the political entity thus named and to those , wherever they may be and whoever they may be, who subscribe to this rubbish.

    God WILL visit the evil ones and prove to them Palestine IS free! Anyone who is heeling to these invaders or helping them can expect a Godly visit as well as the lessons become more intense for those in need of education on God’s laws and there importance to every soul on this rock.

    They treat the world like this, not just Palestine.
    They’ve ripped off goy banks and pensions funds and now hand themselves bailouts. It’s all part of their racist supremacist insanity. One day they may kill us all with this thinking

    Did the Nazis kill the Jews in order to steal their lands and get treasure?
    What did they get out of it?
    The Zionists are getting all manner of lands and treasure out of the
    exterminations of Palestinians.

    The cause of ZIONISM is WORSE than the cause of the Nazis against Jews.

    The Nazis claimed to be acting as Nazis. No deception.
    The Zionists claim to be acting as Jews. Deception.
    Many different Jews secular and not secular reject ZIONISM.
    Zionism is against the bible, the Torah and EVERY RELIGEON THERE IS except devil worship…!

    In conclusion:
    SO yeah maybe we shouldnt compare the ZIONISTS to Nazis that much.

    From my perspective, spiritual heroism requires unthinkable forgiveness and humility that ultimately becomes irresistible…this is not capitulation it is penultimate higher consciousness..

    Zionists control the public debate in Western countries. They know what they can and cannot get away with. They are escalating the destruction of the Palestinians right before the eyes of us all, with little resistance from the West, little sympathy for Palestine – and little remorse from the Jews themselves.
    These people are driven Satanists who have their collaborators in Western countries, who now know what they can get away with, with their own populations, beginning with the new homeless. How long before these homeless are put in FEMA camps? but even this is only the thin edge of the wedge.
