In what was one other slap within the face of the Palestinians and free folks all over the world, at a time when Israeli safety forces are storming Al-Aqsa Mosque and attacking worshippers, the Egyptian authorities opened the Sinai Peninsula to 1000’s of Zionists in order that they might have fun Passover. The Jewish vacation coincided with the anniversary of Sinai’s full liberation after Taba was returned in 1988 following a ruling by the Worldwide Prison Court docket. That was when singer Shadia sang, “Sinai has returned full to us and to Egypt at the moment” and the Egyptians rejoiced and sang alongside along with her. Nevertheless, they might not enter Taba — the a part of Egypt occupied by Israel — with out permission from the safety authorities, as in the event that they had been going to a international nation. The Israelis, in the meantime, entered Taba with out a visa.
It’s price remembering that when the Zionists had been compelled to go away Taba in 1988, they had been screaming and crying. They burnt the land and demolished all of the buildings earlier than they left.
An estimated 50,000 Zionists flocked to Sinai for a live performance organised by former Israeli military officers, and stayed in Egyptian lodges. It was introduced that the Zionist celebrations can be held in a well known lodge belonging to the Egyptian military, however when this was uncovered by the favored marketing campaign to boycott Israel, the events concerned on this normalisation disgrace had been compelled to withdraw and the occasions had been moved to different lodges within the Nuweiba space.
Historical past information that in Ramadan 1973 — October in that 12 months — the Egyptian military achieved its best victory within the fashionable period and defeated the Israelis, who had claimed that their military was invincible. Since then, in fact, Egypt signed a peace treaty with Israel, the final word normalisation disgrace. Within the present month of Ramadan this 12 months, Israel has thus been handed a free victory with none danger as Egyptian lodges opened to host the live performance in Sinai.
I really feel so unhappy that the Zionists are free to brag about this occasion. In accordance with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) marketing campaign, the invitation was addressed to folks from all around the world to bounce on the land of Sinai. The Israeli organisers stated that this displays their victory, dedication and endurance as they “proved” to the world that they by no means actually depart as soon as they’ve taken one thing.
That is the scenario with Egyptian normalisation. On the identical time, it’s shameful that the Arabs who signed the Abraham Accords to declare their pro-Israel positions with the utmost readability and frankness, additionally have fun the denunciation and condemnation of the Palestinian widespread resistance towards the Zionist occupation forces. Media within the so-called “axis of moderation”, led by Abu Dhabi, undertake Israeli propaganda lies as holy writ that they repeat with out the slightest hesitation. The Arab Zionists describe the Palestinians who defend their usurped land and Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest on the planet and the positioning of Prophet Muhammad’s miraculous night time journey, because the aggressors and criminals. Within the eyes of such Arabs, the prison Zionists are the harmless victims defending the mosque towards Palestinian assaults.
It’s no shock to be taught that on the identical time that the normalisation Zionist Arabs and their leaders within the UAE open their treasuries to help the Israeli financial system in order that the enemy can proceed to colonise occupied Palestine, at the very least $10 billion has been allotted for this ignoble trigger. What’s stunning is that persons are astonished that these “average” regimes could be much more Zionist than the Israelis in adopting the anti-Palestinian narrative with such enthusiasm.
To compound the disgrace that these regimes are clearly incapable of feeling, that is all taking place whilst main human rights organisations, together with Amnesty Worldwide, accuse Israel of implementing apartheid in occupied Palestine. Apartheid is akin to a criminal offense towards humanity. So blinded are they by their love for the Zionist regime — UAE Overseas Minister Abdullah Bin Zayed regrets lacking out on 43 years of relations with Israel — that the signatories of the Abraham Accords stand on the incorrect aspect of historical past. The world is waking as much as the pernicious nature of Zionism and the occupation state it has spawned.
I say once more that the Arab Zionists are extra harmful to the Ummah than their Israeli counterparts. The reason being easy: with out them, Israel wouldn’t exist.
