Returning to the ancestral void

20 political terms to avoid: a brief glossary for Resistance supporters

resistance-episteme:

As the name and description of this blog reveals, its main focus is to expose intellectual and discursive imperialism, i.e. the language imperialists use to distort our reality which we then internalize. If we are to successfully resist these attempts, we must devise a counter-hegemonic discourse…

NEVER use the occupier’s/colonizer’s terminology. This post inspires me to write a similar post about Palestine in particular. Detoxify your language.

“Speaking with The Jerusalem Post, Congressman Eliot Engel (D-New York), ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said no bill was required for aid to be cut to the Palestinians. “I don’t believe legislation is necessary,” Engel said, noting that existing legislation triggers a cut in aid. “That’s law.” “Somehow the Palestinian Authority seems to have this attitude that we are somehow obligated to keep them afloat,” he added. “Surely he [Abbas] can’t think that we can just disregard something that’s so basic and fundamental to our policy.””

US Congress prepares hearings to reconsider Palestinian aid after formation of unity government | JPost | Israel News (via aboriginalnewswire)

To hell with your blood-tainted money. Palestinians don’t need aid; they need more dignity and honor! You kept Palestinians “negotiating” for 20 years, while Israel maimed, killed, imprisoned, and tortured Palestinians. It stole more land to erect hundreds of settlements to change “facts on the ground”, and kept the people thirsty as they helplessly watched their water being robbed at point blank. Zionists own you, congressman, and you will only speak as they tell you, or they will replace you as soon as possible. Down with your evil empire, zionist lackey.

why can’t we all just get along?

An insipid oversimplification of the issue.
Can you, zionists, get along with the millions of returning refugees (the majority of Palestinians) who are the offspring of the people you kicked out, took their properties, and butchered? Can you stop robbing Palestinian land, water, and resources to build more colonial settlements on the West Bank?Can you stop humiliating, imprisoning, and brutalizing civilians, including children, women, and older people?This is not an issue of religion at all. It is a matter of Israel being the spearhead of imperialism in the region. Even the PLO called for one secular democratic state for all before its wings were clipped in the 1982 Lebanon war. Getting along needs to be based on justice for all. Stop acting like you know what the problem is, and making it seem like it is some religious feud.

The Massacre of Deir Yassin, Palestine; April 9th, 1948
Irgun and Stern Gang, the Jewish forces, stormed into the village of Deir Yassin on this day 63 years ago [64 now], they sprayed the houses with machine gun fire, killing many. They raped and killed some of the women, they gathered the remaning villagers in one place and shot them all in cold blood.
Fahim Zaydan was 12 at the time;
“They took us out one after the other; shot an old man and when one of his daughters cried, she was shot too. Then they called my brother Muhammad, and shot him infront of us, and when my mother yelled, bending over him- carrying my little sister Hudra in her hands, still breastfeeding her- they shot her too.”
Zaydan was shot too (he survived) when the troops lined up children against a wall and sprayed them with bullets “just for the fun of it”.
Research suggests that between 93-170 people were massacred, this list doesn’t include the people killed during the fighting.
