Perspektivet i den palæstinensiske helstat

SF’eren Fathi El-Abed er en aktiv herre på Facebook, hvor han hver dag fortæller helt udokumenterede historier om både den uniformerede og civile israelske besættelsesmagts mord på og kidnapninger af palæstinensiske mænd, kvinder og børn. Faktaresistensen hos ham og hans følge af muslimer og venstrefløjsere overlever selv videodokumentation af at de palæstinensiske ofre viser sig at være attentatmænd, -kvinder og børn, der bliver skudt eller på anden måde nedlagt i selvforsvar og at de sjældent dør. Så naturligvis optræder han ofte i medierne som ekspert i Mellemøsten.

Og naturligvis lægger dagbladet Information - “Protestadresse for Antisemitisme” - spalteplads til et revisionistisk opkast fra hans hånd, hvor han begræder delingen af Palæstina for 60 år siden. Hans historiesyn jeg har en del indvendinger imod, men hvad der slog mig som en selvstændig pointe er, at han ikke nævner Israel med et ord. Denne manglende anerkendelse af Israels eksistens stikker dybt i det arabisk-muslimske sind, som man kan læse Bassam Tawil skriver for Gatestone Institute

A public opinion poll published last week refutes Abbas’s claim that Palestinians are committing terrorist attacks out of “despair and frustration.” The poll, conducted by the Watan Center for Studies and Research, found that 48% of the Palestinians interviewed believe that the real goal of the “intifada” is to “liberate all of Palestine.” In other words, approximately half of Palestinians believe that the goal of the “intifada” should lead to the destruction of Israel.

What is notable, is that only 11% of respondents said that the true goal of the “intifada” should be to “liberate” only those territories captured by Israel in 1967. Another 12% of Palestinians said they believe that the goal of the “intifada” was to release prisoners held by Israel.

The results of the poll, which covered 1,167 Palestinians above the age of 18, show that a majority of Palestinians continue to seek the destruction of Israel. The poll shows that only a few Palestinians see only the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem as the future Palestinian state. They want the “intifada” to replace Israel with a Palestinian state — preferably, one that now would be ruled by Hamas and jihadi organizations such as Islamic State and Al-Qaeda.

These Palestinians do not see a difference between, say, Ma’aleh Adumim, a “settlement” on the outskirts of Jerusalem, and any city inside Israel. One only needs to look at reports in the Palestinian media to see that Tel Aviv, Rishon Lezion, Kiryat Gat and Ra’anana are all considered “settlements.” These reports also show that Palestinians do not see a difference between a Jew living in the West Bank and Israel — instead, they are all depicted as “settlers” and “colonialists.”

None of the Palestinians interviewed for the poll complained about “despair and frustration,” or the lack of a “political horizon.” Obviously, they are driven by hatred for Jews and Israel. They do not, however, have a problem with “settlements” or “poor living conditions.” They have a problem with Israel’s existence. A majority believes that Israel can — and should — be destroyed. They are not, as Palestinian leaders claim, seeking a two-state solution.

According to the poll, more than 75% of Palestinians support the use of violence against Israel. More than 44% of respondents support the use of firearms against Israel; 18% are in favor of using knives to kill Jews, and another 14% would like to see Palestinians use stones. This contradicts Abbas’s claim that the Palestinians want a “peaceful and popular” uprising.

Another noteworthy finding of the poll is that 72% of Palestinians want the current “intifada” to continue.

Men det er ikke blot et spørgsmål om landegrænser, det er et spørgsmål om jøden, som nogle kvalitative interviews kan supplere de kvantitative meningsmålinger

Alle de gange araberne sagde nej til delingsforslag sagde de nej til Israels eksistens. Landflygtighed er ikke katastrofen, Israels eksistens er. Og 60 år efter Israels oprettelse kan Fathi El-Abed end ikke få ordet over sine fingre.

  1. Man ønsker intet Israel; men værre er, at der blandt europæiske ledere trives en ligegyldighed over for denne eliminatoriske tankegang. Det ville jo ikke være svært for en dansk statsminister, at tage klart afstand fra -, hvis han/hun ønskede det. Og ikke kun i form af generelle bemærkninger, men ved lejligheder hvor Israel udsættes for terror. Dem er der -desværre - mange af.
