The second wave of the Zionist arrests

The second wave of the Zionist arrests

(This is part of my memoir I published successively on the pages of Countercurrents on the Zionist invasion of Lebanon 1982 and the destruction of the Palestinian refugee camp.) At that time, most of my dreams at night were constant nightmares, something I didn’t know before. Perhaps this is a natural matter because dreams reflect the reality that a person[Read More…]

Before the second wave of the Zionist arrests!

Before the second wave of the Zionist arrests!

  We had the feeling that the Zionist arrest campaigns did not end after the first campaign and the individual arrests here and there. The question is political and moral, which I was asking myself. Does a person stay in the place if he thinks he will get arrested? I remember discussing this question with a friend who said that[Read More…]

Shireen Abu Akleh: The story of a foretold death!

Shireen Abu Akleh: The story of a foretold death!

The slain Palestinian TV journalist   Sherine Abu Akleh holds American citizenship. But I expect that the United States will not do anything because Sherine is Palestinian and the killer is Zionist. And when the killer is a Zionist, America always does nothing, even if the victim is an American. I read a while ago the testimony of an American sailor[Read More…]

Gloomy days during the Zionist occupation

Gloomy days during the Zionist occupation

One of the difficult things during the first period of the Zionist occupation was that I could no longer move at night after seven in the evening, especially since we were in semi-destroyed houses with no water or electricity. By evening, the camp was completely silent. And darkness hover over the camp. But when the dogs howled, we knew there[Read More…]

The daily Zionist terror in the camp

During the Zionist arrest campaigns

I received several reactions to the memoirs that I published successively on the pages of the countercurrents. Some blame me for waiting a long time to write about that period, and they are right.

Life in the camp under the Zionist occupation

Life in the camp under the Zionist occupation

It was summer 1982 in the aftermath of the Zionist invasion and the total destruction of the camp by the Zionist planes. For this reason, the camp residents could live in semi-destroyed houses without doors or windows without suffering from severe cold. Therefore, the main concern was that winter would come before reconstructing their homes. I used to hear these[Read More…]

In the aftermath of the massacre

In the aftermath of the massacre

We were in a Lebanese village where all of us who came from the Burj shimali camp gathered in one room. The Zionist army treated the Lebanese in that period well, intending to win the sympathy of the Lebanese people. But this changed after some time when the Lebanese realized that Israel’s goals were far beyond eliminating the PLO. Indeed[Read More…]

The West supports Israel, whether according to the theory of civilizations or as an imperial agent!

Yesterday, I saw a caricature with many connotations. The caricature is about Ukrainian man carrying the flag in front of a Russian tank and the writing beside him that he is resisting.

Manipulating history is a Zionist idea par excellence!

The first who invented the idea of ​​manipulating history in the modern era were the Zionist Jews—their occupation of Palestine and the expulsion of most of its people based on two grounds. The first is that the Jews have been in Palestine for two thousand years, which is ridiculous logic, and the second is that the Jews are hated in[Read More…]

Criticizing the Zionist occupation is the reason to fire Arab journalist from a German TV

The firing of the five Arab journalists from work on German television in Arabic Deutsche Welle, is a disgrace to Germany and everyone who claims freedom of opinion.

Palestinians have no choice but to resist injustice!

For more than seventy years, the Palestinians have been awaiting international justice. They have hoped that they will obtain their rights through international laws.
