Doves and HawksNahida Izzat Salem-News.com
As a Palestinian once said, "the hawks want to eat us with bare hands, while the doves want to eat us with knives and forks".
(LONDON) - It is perplexing to observe the “soft-zionist” or the upholders of “post-zionism”, the “doves” of the “peace camp”, exerting tremendous effort to "teach" Palestinians the ethics of "non-violent resistance":
How to "resist” sadistic soldiers with peaceful smiles
How to silence machine guns with intelligent argument
How to face lethal bullets with colourful banners
How to stop tanks with bare hands
How to fend off F16 with debka dance and folklore songs
How to subdue a nihilist army with hospitality
How to freeze an apache helicopter by “shooting” a movie of its actions
How to welcome baby-killers as good friends and righteous neighbours
How to embrace armed invaders with open arms
How to accept and befriend fanatic supremacists (those who invade fully-armed, fully-trained ready to kill, whether they arrived yesterday, today or even tomorrow) as honourable citizens with equal rights
Instead of wasting their time and energy preaching to the oppressed how to defend themselves "non-violently", the "me-peacers" ought to be teaching their own society how to conduct their daily lives without aggression and non-violence.
Instead of condemning the self-defence of armed resistance as "terrorism", they aught to be condemning the very violent creation and existence of their own terrorist state, founded by theft, terrorism, ethnic cleansing and slow genocide.
How could anyone with a thread of moral fiber condemn self-defence when one's very life is threatened with extermination?
and One can only imagine what would the reaction of those “peace-campers” be in a hypothetical situation, wherein they and their children are attacked by heavily armed gangsters, would they stand peacefully waving their banners to face the bullets? Would they sit and write a petition against the actions of the attackers then pass it around to be signed? Or would they run to their guns to defend themselves and protect their children?
While the “doves” persist to “educate” Palestinians with all that stuff, their “hawks” brethren continue to advance their military power, refine their plans, intensify their aggression, expand their control, extend their influence, and spread their hasbara.
TThe hawks continue to teach their future-invader children how to perfect the use of machine guns, how to become good-sharpshooters, how to gun down a mother and baby with one bullet, how to make life even more unbearable for Palestinians that they leave, how to finish off the ethnic-cleansing of Palestine, and how to wrap up their zionist project by forging more documents, stealing more land and creating more irreversible facts on the grounds!
It works mighty well between those two seemingly opposite poles; the harmonious duo complements each other magnificently!!While one team is busy doing the “dirty work”, the other rolls its sleeves to clean up the mess and put the makeup on.
In short, while “soft” zionists are busy “teaching” Palestinians the “art of peace-making”, their brethren are working tirelessly teaching themselves the “art of war”.
And as a Palestinian once said, the hawks want to eat us with bare hands, while the doves want to eat us with knives and forks.
In that context the Zionist Mossad motto “by deception we wage war” fits perfectly with the saying of Sun Tzu “Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting".
Finally, I would draw to the attention of the reader to some quotes of Gandhi that many don’t like to mention or even remember:
“I WOULD risk violence a thousand times rather than risk the emasculation of a whole race.”
“I have been repeating over and over again that he who cannot protect himself or his nearest and dearest or their honour by non-violently facing death may and ought to do so by violently dealing with the oppressor. He who can do neither of the two is a burden. He has no business to be the head of a family. He must either hide himself, or must rest content to live for ever in helplessness and be prepared to crawl like a worm at the bidding of a bully”.
“Though violence is not lawful, when it is offered in self-defence or for the defence of the defenceless, it is an act of bravery far better than cowardly submission. The latter befits neither man nor woman. Under violence, there are many stages and varieties of bravery. Every man must judge this for himself. No other person can or has the right”.
Nahida Izzat is a Jerusalem-born Palestinian refugee who has lived in exile for over forty two years, after being forced to leave her homeland at the tender age of seven in 1967, during the six-day war. She has a degree in mathematics, but art is one of her favorite pastimes. She loves hand-made things and so makes dolls, cards, and most of her own clothes. She also writes poetry, participates in written dialogues and believes in building bridges, not walls.
She started writing when her friends insisted she should write about her memories, experiences and feelings as a Palestinian.When she did it all came out sounding—she was told—like poetry! So she self-published two books: I Believe in Miracles and Palestine, The True Story.
Her dream is to return back home to a free and liberated Palestine.
