Olive is a Jewish commenter who is a pretty reasonable person. However, she tends to buy into neocon scare stories from the likes of the slimy Ultra Jew Daniel Pipes. One of Pipes’ theories is that the Palestinian solidarity movement is sweeping the White West, the result being Arabization and Islamicization of the West. This is actually a joke.
I don’t like Daniel Pipes either, and I never said the UK was becoming “Arabized.” Just that this supposed support for the Palestinians goes far beyond that. They now see the Palestinians through the same lens that Westerners supposedly saw the holocaust survivors. As victims they can do no wrong and their culture should be elevated to a different status and beyond criticism. Anything critical we might say about Islam or the Arab world is dismissed as “Zionist propaganda.”
Olive also spoke about how hordes of White Christian Westerners were going to Palestinian cultural festivals and even celebrating Muslim holidays.
I’ve never heard of a Palestinian cultural festival. But I might go to one, maybe for the food. Also your typical Western Pallie is a very nice, warm and friendly person, a typical Arab. Unlike most Western Whites. It’s nice to meet friendly people.
We have a few Palestinians around me. You can talk to the men, and they are very friendly. The woman are not very approachable, perhaps for cultural reasons. But the Arabs in this town act very good. They act better than the native Euro-White people, many of whom look like they are strung out on meth.
I’ve never heard of a White Western non-Muslim celebrating a Muslim holiday to show how much they love the Pallies.
There are not that many Whites in the US who think they way Olive described. On the Left either. Even in the UK, I do not think there are too many. Some Leftists are in on this, but there are not many of those folks. I would say that these types are far eclipsed by the Islam-haters in the BNP and it’s offshoots, many of which have British Jewish support.
This whole thing about pro-Pallie sentiment taking over the West is preposterous. Most even liberals don’t care about the Palestinians that much. We think Arabs are uncivilized, and we are dubious and wary at best about Islam, especially in our countries.
Liberals just don’t like the US supporting a big fat bully, Israel, that pushes the Palestinians around, that’s all. Liberals support the underdogs and the oppressed and fight the bullies and the oppressors. The oppressed don’t have to be good citizens. They need only be oppressed. Then we sign on.
So with US liberals it’s not so much support for Pallies (Tough sell!) as it is disgust with an openly fascist ethnic nationalist state in Israel. Openly fascist ethnic nationalists do go against almost everything we liberals stand for, you know.
As far as support for the Pallies, their religion, their culture, whatever, that’s just a fringe group called the Palestinian Solidarity Movement. Compared to the Jewish Lobby in the US and the world, it’s so tiny in the West that it’s almost a joke. In fact, I think it is a joke! Why isn’t Daniel Pipes laughing? He should be doubled over.
Yes, some of the PSM folks elevate Arab and Pallie culture and religion ridiculously, refuse to criticize them, call all critics Zionists, etc.
I was part of that movement for a while. The group I was with was run by Palestinian Communists (most of the top membership were apparently members of the PFLP political wing).
I was thrown out as a “Zionist spy or agent” (LOL) after a while. I suggested that Ashkenazi Jews had roots in the Middle East, and I criticized Arabs and their crap culture. I also slammed Islam. You can’t do that. You can be as anti-Semitic as all get out (the Pallie Solidarity movement is full of anti-Semitism) but don’t you criticize their pet Arabs and pet Muslims.
The movement is also full of Muslims, and they make sure you can’t attack their lousy religion. Also, the Whites are mostly Muslim sympathizers, and periodically one of these idiots “embraces Islam” (converts to Islam) to the cheers of the whole crowd. Even the Communists cheer! It makes you want to puke. There are a few Middle Eastern Christians in the group, but they are the minority. Even the Arab Communists are really pro-Islam. It’s sickening!
In terms of Western Whites, this PSM thing is a fringe movement of a bunch of crazies. It has little to no importance in the scheme of things. Pipes is a nut and a liar for blowing the movement out of proportion, but I suspect he knows he’s lying? You never know with Super Jews. They lie like rugs.
What is it with Jews and lying, anyway?
Does their religion give them permission to lie, maybe to save or help the Jews, or fight the enemies of the Jews? As so many things can be interpreted as protecting the Jews from their enemies, this gives Super Jews a lot of opportunities to lie religiously.
