Well, not everyone can actually contribute to the world. You have to know your strengths and focus on them, I guess.
A Palestinian diplomat speaking to students at the United Nations headquarters in New York told them the Palestinians were proud to be throwing stones at Israeli forces and will continue teaching their children to do so.
In a recording obtained by Ynet, Abdallah Abushawesh, who serves as a senior adviser to the UN’s Development Group and as a member of the Palestinian UN mission, is heard saying in broken English, “We are very clever and very expert at throwing the stones. We are very proud to do that. We will not stop to learn our kids (to do that).”
Yup, really clever. Would sound even more clever if he learned how to speak English.
To the sound of sniggering from his listeners, Abushawesh went on to say that every Palestinian caught throwing stones by Israel gets sent to jail. “We are very proud that we are stone throwers. I’m one of them. Now I became a little bit older, but I stay resistant in the name of my kids,” he continued.
Father of the year! As for the sniggering, these are clearly some of McGill’s finest students.
The Palestinian diplomat later told the students about his own past as a stone-thrower during the first intifada. “I was in high school. I never missed an opportunity to throw stones. This is our life. We develop our resistance every day. We’re proud of it,” he said.
That’s the palestinians for you; they never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity…or throw stones.
