Högerns provokationer och Talibanernas solidaritet

Den reaktionära blaskan SvD uppmärksammar i en minimal notis att situationen i Gaza är den sämsta på över 40 år. DN ger det hela lite mer utrymme.

- Den humanitära krisen är helt förfärlig. För att komma åt Hamas-anhängare bombar Israel hus och skjuter med granater och skadar civila, de kollektiva bestraffningarna är folkrättsvidriga. Läget är betydligt allvarligare nu än på många år, säger Elisabeth Löfgren, pressekreterare på Amnesty Sverige.


Solidariteten från västs ledare uteblir i vanlig ordning, tystnaden talar för sig själv. Talibanerna däremot säger så här:

In the statement, the al Qaeda-backed Taliban also asked for help for the Palestinians.

"The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan wants global institutions who preach democracy and human rights to the people of the world to condemn these atrocities of Israel and bring it to the International Criminal Court," it said.


Europeiska politiker däremot är inne på ett helt annat spår. Nu är nämligen bästa tillfället att provocera muslimer, anser en Holländsk högerpolitiker! (på sidan innan i samma Reutersartikel).

Dutch right-wing politician Geert Wilders is expected to release his film, thought to be critical of the Koran, later this month. Wilders has given few details, but in the past he has called the Koran a "fascist" book that incites violence.

The reprinting of the cartoon and the planned release of the film coincide with recent incursions by Israel into Gaza, where more than 120 Palestinian civilians have been killed.

The developments have angered many in the Muslim world and prompted a series of protests in Afghanistan, where demonstrators have demanded the expulsion of Danish and Dutch troops serving under NATO's command.


Underbara goa fredsmäklande högerpolitiker, er kan man lita på att fortsätta polarisera världen i vi och dem och goda och onda! Vad menar Talibanerna med att vi ska fördöma Israels folkmord!? Hur vågar de! De är ju bara en samling Koranläsande fascister! Nej illasinnad propaganda är vad det är, vi stannar i Afghanistan och vinner "the war on terror" sen av-islamiserar vi Afghanistans precis som vi av-nazifierade Tyskland och därefter inför vi marknadsfundamentalism så att vettigt folk kan shoppa igen!

Är inte palestinska raketer mot städer kollektiv bestraffning?

"The IDF, as depicted by the Israeli media, has another strange ability: it never initiates, decides to attack or launches an operation. The IDF simply responds. It responds to the Qassam rockets, responds to terror attacks, responds to Palestinian violence. This makes everything so much more sensible and civilised: the IDF is forced to fight, to destroy houses, to shoot Palestinians and to kill 4485 of them in seven years, but none of these events is the responsibility of the soldiers. They are facing a nasty enemy, and they respond dutifully. The fact that their actions – curfews, arrests, naval sieges, shootings and killings – are the main cause of the Palestinian reaction does not seem to interest the media. Because Palestinians cannot respond, Israeli journalists choose another verb from the lexicon that includes revenge, provoke, attack, incite, throw stones or fire Qassams.

Interviewing Abu-Qusay, the spokesman of Al-Aqsa Brigades in Gaza, in June 2007, I asked him about the rationale for firing Qassam missiles at the Israeli town of Sderot. ‘The army might respond,’ I said, not realising that I was already biased. ‘But we are responding here,’ Abu-Qusay said. ‘We are not terrorists, we do not want to kill . . . we are resisting Israel’s continual incursions into the West Bank, its attacks, its siege on our waters and its closure on our lands.’ Abu-Qusay’s words were translated into Hebrew, but Israel continued to enter the West Bank every night and Israelis did not find any harm in it. After all it was only a response.

At a time when there were many Israeli raids on Gaza I asked my colleagues the following question: ‘If an armed Palestinian crosses the border, enters Israel, drives to Tel Aviv and shoots people in the streets, he will be the terrorist and we will be the victims, right? However, if the IDF crosses the border, drives miles into Gaza, and starts shooting their gunmen, who is the terrorist and who is the defender? How come the Palestinians living in the Occupied Territories can never be engaged in self-defence, while the Israeli army is always the defender?’ My friend Shay from the graphics department clarified matters for me: ‘If you go to the Gaza Strip and shoot people, you will be a terrorist. But when the army does it that is an operation to make Israel safer. It’s the implementation of a government decision!’" Läs hela: Yonatan Mendel: How to Become an Israeli Journalist
