Gazan doctor nominated for Nobel – Making a Mockery of Palestinian Suffering

April 07, 2009

With deepest condolences and sympathies to the Palestinian peoples, if per chance Dr. Abu al-Aish might feel inclined towards this nomination (Ynet News April 06, 2009), he might first just read this Project Humanbeingsfirst letter: Letter to Editor Guardian: 2008 Orwell Prize for the Palestinian Narrative of Nakba

Similar considerations apply here, except that both qualitatively and quantitatively, the mockery is several orders of magnitude more perverse.

Fling the ‘honor’ that is shared with Begin and Rabin right back in their face! The ‘honor’ that is bestowed by the same Western powers in abject mockery, who oversee the construction of Zionistan [1] and the Shoah of the Palestinians [2]! An 'honor' for which every man woman and child in Palestine nightly screams “it is a mystery whose parallel may only be the one of Sinai when something was revealed to mankind”! [3] And they have the chutzpah to hand out the Orwellian Nobel Prize to the victims instead of Restitution, Compensation, and Justice?

A Palestinian does not accept mockery, nor victimhood. “The villany you teach me, I will execute, and it shall go hard but I will better the instruction.” [4]
