PALESTINIAN President Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) is more able, among the leaders of the Arab nations, in safeguarding the interests of Palestine and no one in the Arab World is more Palestinian than him.
For years, this man has been bearing the burden of defending his national case with what he could obtain in terms of capabilities under blockage which no authority has suffered the way the Palestinian National Authority does.
At the same time, this authority continues to suffer from the arrows of treachery and distrust thrown by traders who took up the Palestinian case as their own commodity. Therefore, trading with Abu Mazen’s participation in the funeral of former Israeli president Shimon Peres is part of trading with the Palestinian issue as it has been since 1947.
Undoubtedly, this is a loss-making trade due to the fact that the main commodities are merely jingles (slogans), which do not return any refugee to his land or protect displaced people from the severe cold at night in torn tents. In fact, this trade has made Palestine completely lost from the sea to the river, instead of liberating it from water to water.
We urge President Abbas to move forward with his politics. He should not leave out any occasion which he can use to achieve the main objective – establishment of the Palestine State on any land retaken from Israel’s occupation in order to expand continuously.
President Abbas should continue avoiding falling into the trap of the ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ authority in Gaza Strip, which spilt blood for the sake of Iran when it was on its way to sign the nuclear deal.
In return, all that Iran gave back to Gaza was their media mouthpieces, feigning tears over Palestinians and leaving them for 55 days under the iron of Israel’s killing machines, whereas the leaders of ‘Hamas’ continued to wage hotels’ war through televisions overseas, not next to the innocent people who were left behind to face their destiny.
President Abu Mazen, those who are throwing arrows at you are agents roaming in the markets of betrayal to sell the blood of Palestinians. It is not you, unwavering and firm on your land, striving to retake what has been stolen in order to establish a nation for people who have endured miseries due to laxity of Arabs and division among Palestinians and lived on promises throughout the past decades.
The nation that presented its miseries to kiosks of jingles when it used to take alleys of Beirut as its market to sell its pain at the cheapest price to intelligence agencies, which led to terror crimes and hijacking of planes under the pretext of letting their case known. In reality, they were serving the interests of their master, exactly as what ‘Hamas’, ‘Jihad’ and other kiosks of jingles that operate on Tehran’s orders are doing.
Indeed, His Excellency the President, today’s case has return to its essence, which is the Palestine-Israel case, with admission from Arabs and support from the international community. Those mouthpieces cannot achieve even 10 percent of what the national authority and institutions have accomplished in the past 23 years.
They neither returned the land nor established an authority or even acquired Arab and international recognition like your authority which is a member of the United Nations.
Abu Mazen, pay no attention to the hoots of owls living on destruction and striving for more destruction so they can continue to have a place to hoot. Israel has become a State in reality, whether we like it or not.
If you depend on the jingles or robbers of authority, even on the rabbles of Gaza, as the case with ‘Hamas’ today, there will be no hope of survival for the current national authority. It seems Israel is closer to the two-States solution than at any given time in the past.
