The post title gives away the punchline, and should not come as any surprise to regular readers. After all, I have shown time and again how Israel haters – even when masquerading as peace-loving activists wanting justice – are not supporters of a peaceful two-state solution.
But every time they get sloppy and pretty much admit as much, I’ll endeavor to be there to out them.
In this case, the haters in question are a number of anti-Israel groups in the UK – City Fans Against Apartheid, Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! (FRFI) Manchester, and Victory the Intifada, who are hosting the following event in Manchester.
Leila Khaled is an unrepentant terrorist. In her younger days in the PLFP, she hijacked a number of planes, blowing up the nose section of one of them, and carrying some hand grenades during the next, foiled hijacking attempt (her accomplice shot a member of the flight crew). To this day, she supports terrorism as a legitimate means to an end – the end being the destruction of Israel.
But to these haters, she is a heroine. They romanticize her as a “daring hijacker and…guerilla..part of a new generation of liberation fighters.” They describe her as merely an “activist” today, someone who “holds true to her principles that the fight for Palestine means a struggle for a better world.” And this better world is a world without Israel – something these BDS-holes fully support, since they mention this goal explicitly.
“The supreme objective of the Palestinian liberation movement is the total liberation of Palestine, the dismantlement of the Zionist state aparatus, and the construction of a socialist society in which both Arabs and Jews can live in peace and harmony.”
Note also the end part of the event description:
And how can we be part of the resistance?
In other words, not only do they support terrorism and the eradication of the Jewish state of Israel, but they want to be part of it.
If you live in the UK, please contact the authorities about this terrorist event. And join me in reporting the event to Facebook.
