THE first one is 16-year-old Palestinian girl Ahed Tamimi. The entire world witnessed with their eyes and ears the practices of Israel’s apartheid occupying authority while handling this unarmed blonde girl. I was shocked by the image of Ahed Tamimi who was surrounded by about 13 Israeli policewomen and policemen.
They escorted the handcuffed Tamimi to court which will look into the case or grievance filed against her — slapping one of the occupying soldiers.
This is a clear indication and testimony of Israeli cowardice and fear of voices against their skewed and wicked practices which put them the only apartheid nation in the world; given that according to political analysis, there were three apartheid countries in the world: Russia, South Africa and Israel.
The first and second countries got rid of the abhorrent system that discriminates against people, so the only country which continues apartheid in the entire world is Israel. We dedicate this information to those who are currently promoting the idea of normalizing relations with the enemy (Israel), and creating enmity with other countries and nations.
Ironically, the empty mentality of such kind of people have been met with a resounding slap by the reckless decision of United States of America President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Zionist State.
By the grace of Almighty Allah, may Ahed Tamimi be released from captivity together with other warriors and those standing with them.
The second female who received my admiration this week is the 21-year-old singer born in New Zealand, known professionally as Lorde (Ella Marija Lani Yelich- O’Connor). Lorde, may Allah increase her kind in this world, decided to cancel a show in the occupying Zionist State — Israel — after being pressured by activists of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions Movement which is part of a global anti-Semitic boycott against the Hebrew State.
In her statement, which was published by the company promoting her show in Tel Aviv, Lorde said: “I have had a lot of discussions with people holding many views, and I think the right decision at this time is to cancel the show.”
The company promoting her show respected Lorde’s decision by saying, “We excuse Lorde and we wish her a successful tour in Russia and the United States.” On the stances taken by these ladies, all we can do is to be more respectful of our second half — women who are being considered by some socially retarded individuals as inferior. We tell them, “A woman of this kind is worth a thousand men of your kind.”
