Bad aftertaste - 62 years on


I woke up this morning and looked at my Calendar that read 15 May and I knew it was a bad day. I usually have had better memories on this day in the last few years, but for the goodness of me I didn't know what today signified.

Thanks to Dubai Jazz, I remembered. I just read this post on this blog which is copied here in its entirety:



15th of May - 62 Years on the Nakba: A Few Memorable Quotes

"The cleansing of Palestine remained the prime objective of Plan Dalet."
David Ben Gurion (the 'Founding Father' of Israel)


(Plan Dalet was a premeditated plan designed in part to ethnically cleanse Palestine during the establishment of the state of Israel)


"Only a state with at least 80% Jews is a viable and stable state"
David Ben Gurion


"Arab evacuees from the towns and villages left largely because of Jewish — Haganah, IZL or LHI — attacks or fear of impending attack.......[however],an extremely small, almost insignificant number of the refugees during this early period left because of Haganah or IZL or LHI expulsion orders or forceful 'advice' to that effect"
Benn Morris. Author of "The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem Revisited", Cambridge University Press, 2004.


"This leads to a figure of 73% for departures caused directly by the Israelis. In addition, the report attributes 22% of the departures to "fears" and "a crisis of confidence" affecting the Palestinian population. As for Arab calls for flight, these were reckoned to be significant in only 5% of cases…"
A report by the military intelligence arm of the Haganah (the Jewish paramilitary force), which refutes the claim that the +750,000 Palestinians left Palestine of their own volition.


"Allon repeated the question: What is to be done with the population[50,000 Palestinian inhabitants of Lyd and Ramllah]? Ben-Gurion waved his hand in a gesture that said: Drive them out!"
The Memoir of Yitzhak Rabin "Soldier of Peace"


"I'm a Zionist!"
Joe Biden, VPOTUS.


"The Middle East is obviously an issue that had plagued the region for centuries"
Barack Hussein Obama, POTUS.

---------------------------

"The viciousness of Israel is testament to its knowing that Palestinians will always remain steadfast and defeat its past and present attempts to erase them"
Joseph Massad (Associate Professor of Modern Arab Politics at Columbia University)


"Revolt! you're only going to lose the tent and the shackle"
George Habash (the late Palestinian leader)


"All that you have done to our people is registered in notebooks"
Mahmoud Darwish (A renowned Palestinian poet)


"When a brown man resists, he's a terrorist. When a white man resists, he's Robin Hood"
Dubai Jazz


"It must have sucked to be an Arab in 1948/49"
A Zionist, arguing the Nakba with Dubai Jazz on some political forum.


"So, going by your logic, it must have also sucked to be a Jew in Europe circa early 1940s?"
Dubai Jazz, replying to the said Zionist.

Thanks for posting this, BuJ!

A sad memory indeed.


(P.S. It's probably a little conceited on my part to consider my own quotes 'memorable' though :-))

Really sorrowful memories *sigh*
May Allah be with them.

I have been a reader for some time now.Keep up the good work :]I want to add something about Ub aka the preacher muslim with a dirty mouth.I had to close a few public blogs because of him but dont let him stop you.I wonder what his fiance will think if she sees the dirt he has spread on this blog. She should think twice about a creature with no marbles in his head or maybe she is one of his personalities. If she is he did a good job because she is a sane copy of him!

BuJ said...

Dear Abu Jazz.. thanks for commenting.. and yes, your post is good and there is no "conceit" from your part at all :)

Dear Rationality.. Amen.

Dear Abutt.. well God help your family and God help you too. I'm here if you ever wanted to talk about your upbringing and/or your problems.

Dear Alias.. it's lovely to see you here again :) I know you're a silent reader and I appreciate it. I apologise for the rude behaviour of some readers. Unfortunately, it's a small price to pay for the small successes that I have been blessed with. Elhamdillah. I hope you continue to read the blog and please feel free to comment or to stay silent as you prefer. Again, so good to see you :)

Alias, you shouldn't have been closed your blogs.Not worth it. He did and IS doing exacly the same thing with plenty of bloggers. Go scan my blog and see the amounts of insults he left and has been leaving there. I had to resort to comments moderation, but still, he didn't stop, he kept attcking me under different nicknames, then I restricted my blog to users of Google accounts evennthough I hate to do this, just in a desperate attempt to stop him, but he didn't stop sending his filth. He called me with every profane name your mind could think of. today I have recieved 2 comments. he's still harrassing me thru my blog. sometimes I publish his insults, sometimes I just don't bother to read them and delete them rightaway. He even created a wordpress page in which he writes shit about me and call me and my parents names. It seems to me being a cyberbully is the only way around to make him feel worthy and good about himself.

You shouldn't care, and never engage to filth, don't allow yourself to be consumed. let him consume his energy and time.

Oh no I havent, There are many many other words that I havent called you yet!

I didnt start the wordpress page! can you PROVE it was me? When you can PROVE it come and talk.

Alias said...

Buj its not your fault whatsoever.
I am starting to enjoy seeing him make a fool of himself.
Buj and rose thank you both :]
