On Might 11th, she was shot within the head by Israeli snipers whereas reporting an Israeli assault on the Palestinian “Jenin” camp within the West Financial institution. The killing ( relatively assassination) of Shireen Abu Akleh, an Al Jazeera TV Journalist, has remodeled into an unprecedented world condemnation of the Israeli regime and its brutal extermination of the Palestinian activists and particularly the late systematic focusing on of journalists protecting the information within the occupied Palestinian territories.
It’s heartwarming to witness this distinctive second in time when all powers & individuals are united of their assist for the killed Palestinian Journalist … whatever the hidden motives behind the EU/USA/UN and even the Japanese condemnation of the Israeli brutality & aggression in opposition to Palestinian activists & media folks.
Nonetheless, the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh has managed to carry the Palestinian trigger to the forefront as soon as once more after a long time of being relegated to the sidelines and again seats of soiled & biased worldwide politics.
On Might the 15th, the folks of Palestine, the Arab world, and the free communities everywhere in the world joined by Palestinians within the diaspora will as soon as once more commemorate the day of Nakba, aka the day the Zionist entity of Israel was established over the Arabian land of Palestine ( with the assistance of western political deception & complicity) again in 1948.
Unusually, this 12 months Palestinians & Arabs will commemorate Nakba day below distinctive circumstances of widespread anger & gloominess over the lack of the outstanding Palestinian activist & veteran Al Jazeera Journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh.
On the day of Shireen’s funeral, I had some technical problem with my TV monitor, and a technician named Omar was working to repair this gentle problem of flickering distortion… “may we watch Al Jazeera information whereas fixing your LCD display Physician” politely requested Omar however with a pleading tone.
I advised him “Al Jazeera information at present is all about Palestine and Israel … don’t you relatively want to observe soccer as an alternative” …. “undoubtedly not physician … at present is the funeral of our beloved Shireen Abu Akleh … you already know that an Israeli sniper had shot Shireen within the head and killed her in chilly blood whereas she was in full Press protecting gear put on, reporting the Israeli brutal aggression in opposition to Palestinians cornered in refugee camps” Omar replied with enthusiasm and a little bit of anger.
“Properly, I assumed you didn’t take care of politics, particularly the Israeli-Palestinian problem … you shock me, Omar, inform me in the event you don’t thoughts … what’s Israel to you as a mean Egyptian who occurred to belong to the Arab world?” I requested Omar.
“Properly, … I’m seldom requested this query … however I’m going to reply you, good physician.
“Israel is a reputation synonymous with the enemy in each Arab family. I’ll inform you a superb story, my late father saved telling me whereas I used to be a rising child that I needed to at all times keep in mind that Israel is the enemy … and that I ought to always remember this reality, irrespective of how dissatisfied or deserted we is perhaps by our flesh pressers and leaders.
Furthermore, my father insisted that I ought to educate my little kids this reality as effectively” Omar, the TV technician stated whereas we each gazed on the TV monitor.
The Al Jazeera information channel was on … the funeral of the killed Palestinian Journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh was being coated and streamed dwell … Omar was virtually completed fixing my TV monitor. He timidly requested if he may keep for some time to observe the funeral.
I immediately agreed however I needed to ask him why, I imply I wished to know the rationale why this peculiar man (with seemingly little interest in politics) was so eager to observe the funeral of some Palestinian Journalist and activist.
Omar advised me with a assured tone “ In instances like these the place we’re painfully betrayed by our management, folks like Shireen Abu Akleh are the trustworthy voice of the unvoiced”
I form of accepted of his good reply and we each sat on the sofa sipping tea whereas we watched the funeral & and shortly my son joined in.
The large crowd of Palestinians and reporters who surrounded the coffin of Shireen Abu Akleh appeared to emanate honest and vivid feelings of grief blended with delight of their beloved reporter.
Some had been chanting slogans for Palestine “ We gladly provide our souls & blood for Palestine” … that slogan grew to become very talked-about after the Israeli aggressive 6-day battle again in 1967 …. one of the vital regrettable outcomes of this swift & pre-emptive Israeli battle is that we, Arabs & Palestinians, misplaced management over historical East Jerusalem ( to not point out shedding an incredible chunk of Egyptian, and Syrian land) …. In a method, that slogan was by some means legitimate within the case of Shireen Abu Akleh, for she has sacrificed for the Palestinian trigger together with her blood.
I checked out Omar, and located him very attentive and targeted on the TV display whereas holding his cup of tea … so I requested him “do you know of Shireen Abu Akleh, I imply are you conversant in her work?” … Omar smiled and advised me” Physician, for the final 20 years the whole lot that occurred within the occupied Palestinian territories we had been knowledgeable of due to the trustworthy reporting of Shireen ( God relaxation her soul) …”
Omar was proper, the Al Jazeera satellite tv for pc channel with its crew on the bottom had virtually unique entry ( not like different Arab broadcasting networks) to cowl the information in Israel and the occupied territories of Palestine …. And that’s the place Shireen was assigned, and energetic ….
She reported on the Arabic Al Jazeera channel, not the English one, and that made her a well-recognized face and voice of Palestine information in each home everywhere in the Arab world, to not point out the Palestinians & Arabs within the diaspora.
Folks everywhere in the Arab world trusted the phrases of Shireen Abu Akleh greater than they did the phrases of their management.
Thousands and thousands adopted and watched Shireen’s skilled reporting of the limitless & painful Israeli atrocities that occurred virtually day by day within the occupied Palestinian territories.
Usually, Israeli atrocities in opposition to Palestinians handed unnoticed and exceptional weren’t for the trustworthy and relatively dangerous reporting by Shireen Abu Akleh.
Many international journalists have reported from occupied Palestine, however Shireen was certainly completely different. She had the calmest & but most lamenting tone in her voice, and her eyes mirrored the melancholy & ache of tens of millions of Palestinians struggling below the brutal occupation of the Zionist Israelis, for merely Shireen was certainly one of them.
…. Shireen was Palestinian, no matter her extra American Passport, she was born, raised, and educated below the ruthless and unjust Zionist occupation of her homeland. The land of the inexperienced olives, Al Aqsa mosque, and the Church of the Nativity… ( and never of milk & honey !!)
Shireen coated dwell protests and confrontations between Israeli forces and Palestinian protesters all throughout occupied Palestine, in Japanese Jerusalem, Ramallah, the West Financial institution, and Gaza. She first rose to prominence on the Al Jazeera community throughout her trustworthy, passionate, and brave dwell protection of the Second Palestinian Intifada ( Generally known as Al Aqsa Intifada)
Folks have a tendency to observe the information from completely different worldwide networks with a little bit of skepticism … however within the case of Shireen Abu Akleh, there was no room for doubt or skepticism … for she was one of many oppressed Palestinians dwelling below the Israeli occupation.
Shireen didn’t belong to the “ level & shoot” college of TV reporting … relatively she associated to the individuals who knew her personally after years of reporting on the bottom.
She would talk and examine the reality after which go dwell and inform the precise story that in a lot of the circumstances uncovered the unjustified violence and the deliberate/systematic ethnic cleaning of Palestine by violently uprooting Palestinians from their native villages and houses.
On Might, 15th Palestinians commemorate Nakba Day, the day Israeli gangs and militias terrorized them out of their properties and historic land over some spiritual/ridiculous allegations of “ the Jews returning to their Promised Land after dwelling in diaspora for lots of of years”.
Those that got here to Palestine and settled on its Arabian land aren’t descendants of any historic Jews, however relatively Europeans who transformed to Judaism as their ancestors from Khazaria did within the 7th century AD.
That is the true historical past of the Zionist settlers of Palestine that had nothing to do with the traditional Israelites and their mythological tales ( which by the way in which by no means befell neither in historical Egypt nor in Palestine)
Virtually 750.000 Palestinians had fled their historic Palestinian land in an unprecedented exodus again in 1948. That was an actual exodus the driving trigger behind it was not some alleged pharaoh as with historical Israelites however the Zionist terrorist militias supported by European & American superpowers pulling the strings from behind the scenes.
Whereas the biblical Exodus is at present debunked, unsubstantiated traditionally, and never taken severely within the tutorial circles, nonetheless the Zionist state of Israel will depend on it as one of many premises of its infamous institution over Palestinian land.
In the meantime, the traditionally documented exodus of Palestinians from their native and historic land shouldn’t be taken severely and never accepted by Israeli & western politicians as the bottom for the proper of Palestinians to return to their occupied homeland. A stark distinction that baffles the thoughts of a kid however by no means troubles the conscience of top-ranking politicians in Europe, the White Home, and naturally Tel Aviv.
Whereas we had been watching Shireen’s funeral proceed with associates and family holding her coffin, immediately we received upset and frightened. Hordes of Israeli troopers in heavy and full battle uniforms surrounded the funeral and prevented the procession.
The sight of Palestinian flags turned the Israeli troopers into mad canine … they had been stupidly ferocious in displaying their hatred and intolerance for the entire world to see …
The Israeli troopers got orders to not let the funeral of Shireen flip into some political protest of type … however how couldn’t that be?
In spite of everything, Shireen Abu Akleh was an activist reporter who used the digital camera and her voice as a peaceable weapon to show the brutal atrocities the Israeli navy dedicated on an virtually day by day foundation making an attempt to wipe the remaining native Palestinians out of their homeland and villages.
Shireen was simply doing that the day she was cowardly shot within the head whereas she was on her technique to Jenin camp. The atrocities and killing of harmless Palestinians the Israeli troopers dedicated within the Jenin refugee camp is the blueprint of crimes in opposition to humanity. These crimes normally go exceptional weren’t for the brave and extremely skilled reporting by devoted journalists like Shireen Abu Akleh.
All of the sudden Omar stood up and shouted “ My God, that is outrageous …. attacking mourners carrying the casket on their technique to the cemetery is appalling & inhumane… might god punish these Israelis for what they deserve …. down with Israel”
I attempted to tease Omar, so I advised him “ however these are God’s chosen folks, and that is their Promised Land … Israel has to remain sturdy and affluent to verify the prophecy of the Second coming of Christ would ultimately come true”
…. Omar checked out me and stared me within the eyes … he changed into some form of static determine for seconds … his brow started sweating and his eyes moist with tears he tried exhausting to carry again …. He swallowed his final sip of tea and advised me in a critical and grievous tone
“ No God in heavens would approve of this … we imagine within the god of Moses and the god of Jesus in addition to that of Mohammed…. However these Zionist criminals comply with one other god …. A ruthless god ( one we by no means heard of)
The killing of Shireen Abu Akleh and the assault on her funeral is the best report she has ever given to the world …”
Certainly, the incident of attacking her funeral has uncovered the zionist regime for what it truly is … aggressive apartheid and a colonial regime that has completely nothing to do with any divine promise ….
The Zionist regime is popping Palestine into an open jail & an arsenal of (uninspected) unclear & lethal navy weapons able to wiping out the life on earth … not simply in Palestine … hardly the concept of any god’s promised land.
I seemed with admiration at Omar and thought to myself certainly the Israeli assault on Shireen’s funeral is her best piece of reporting as a free voice of occupied Palestine. After Omar left, my head was teeming with many troubling questions and concepts.
One of many questions is “ why don’t the west commemorate the Nakba day as they do the Holocaust day? The second is “why don’t the free world stand sturdy & united behind Palestine as they do with Ukraine?
I’m not equating Russia with Israel. I imply Russia may have justifiable causes to defend its western borders in opposition to the ever-looming risk of the NATO & US.
However The Zionist regime of Israel is a neighborhood of foreigners from Europe/the US and even Ukraine who landed in Palestine with their international passports and tradition to assert the Arabian land of Palestine theirs by godly mandate.
However as Omar advised me, that will be an unjust God who approves of such ache, killing and forcing the entire folks of Palestine out of their homeland in an Exodus that overshadows, by advantage of its historic fact and actual struggling, the biblical exodus.
Let’s commemorate the day of Nakba on might 15th and bear in mind all of the martyrs who gave their lives to the Palestinian trigger. Let’s have fun the wrestle of many activists whose work on the bottom makes the Israeli troopers of their full fight gear freak on the sight of the Palestinian flag, reveal their Zionist ugly faces, and switch into what they are surely, international aggressors and occupiers of the Arabian land of Palestine.
God bless Shireen Abu Akleh & and all of the nameless martyrs of Palestine … might their pure souls relaxation in peace. They are going to preserve inspiring new generations of Palestinian activists and Journalists to stroll of their footsteps on the trail to freedom.
