The gods have forever delved deep into the chasms of irony, as the Palestinians are about to find out. After leading the charge to blame the Israeli people for all the ills of the Middle East for the better part of the last three decades, they stare slack-jawed and frozen like the proverbial deer in the headlights as they suddenly find themselves...Jew'd! And by their former "friends", no less! From the J-Post:
Palestinian officials on Wednesday appealed to Arab leaders to stop inciting against them by accusing them of instigating unrest in their countries.
The appeal came after the Syrian authorities claimed that Palestinians were behind the recent wave of violence that hit the country.
Buthaina Shaaban, an advisor to Syrian President Bashar Assad, said last week that Palestinians had joined Muslim Brotherhood supporters in attacking residents of the cities of Latakia and Deraa.
The Libyan authorities had also made similar charges against Palestinians.
Government officials in Tripoli claimed that opposition forces have recruited many Palestinians living in Libya as mercenaries to fight against the regime.
Is it true? Who knows? Since when does the truth matter as far as the Palestinians are concerned? Did the matter of truth ever stop these people from making the most outrageous, libelous, baseless claims claims if they thought it could advance their anti-Semetic agenda one freaking inch?
Can you say, "Jenin"?
Their counter-charges are a bit...familiar:
Hafez Barghouti, editor of the PA funded Al-Hayat Al-Jadeeda newspaper, said that the Syrian charges against the Palestinians were a sign of “political bankruptcy.”
“The Arab regimes have turned the Palestinians into a scapegoat. The Palestinians have nothing to do with the Arab revolutions, although they have 1,000 reasons to intervene to settle scores with the Arab regimes.”
Palestinian political analyst Adel Abdel Rahman warned that the Palestinians have become the “rack on which Arab leaders hang their cowardice and collusion against each other...."
If that rack looks familiar, it's because you have used it for a generation in an attempt to hang the Jews.
The Palis will survive this; without them, the UN would lose its raison d'être. Can't have that. But the question is, when the smoke clears from this "Arab Spring", or - depending on how it all turns out - this "Arab Midnight", will the Palestinians, having tasted the cruelty of their own lash, have second thoughts about using it again against the Israelis?
Are you kidding me?
