The courageous pro-Syria Palestinians inside the Syrian Arab Republic as well as occupied Palestine itself have been all but excommunicated from mainstream “Palestine Solidarity Movement” discourse. And truth be told, it is the apogee of sickening.
While Ali Abunimah and Rania Khalek hideously act like they just witnessed a miracle and damn near cry tears of joy about Zionist Jew Bernie Sanders acknowledging Palestinians are human beings, as if this kibbutznik who defended the slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza and Zionist Al-Saud’s butchery of Yemenis will somehow bring forth an earth-shattering change in American policy vis-a-vis Palestine–and as if our Palestinian brothers needed Zionist Jew Bernie Sanders’ comments as a solidification that they do indeed possess humanity–there are REAL Palestinian heroes fighting and dying on Syria’s battlefields as they wage a REAL struggle against Zionism and its Takfiri tools. And they absolutely have support inside their Sahyouni-occupied homeland.
Ali Abunimah and Rania Khalek won’t write about these Palestinians however, nor have they written about them, nor will they ever write about them, because the very existence of these particular Palestinians contradicts the mainstream narrative that Electronic “Intifada”, Jewish supremacist Mondoweiss and their cohorts have attempted to ram down our throats about Syria from the start of this dark, barbaric conspiracy. That is, Palestinians are in lockstep with the NATO-Zionist “Syrian revolution”… Nothing could be further from the truth. This is a blatantly gross distortion of the proverbial facts on the ground and the following examples, ALL deliberately ignored by Electronic “Intifada” and the rest of its colonized constituents, prove just how large this coordinated distortion is:
~ Anwar Hadi, the spokesman of the PLO, who said from day one of the ungodly crisis in Yarmouk that the blame lies squarely at the feet of the Takfiri rebels, who entered the once-vibrant Syrian-Palestinian camp in massive numbers and committed massacres, chased out civilians and looted homes along with businesses. Electronic “Intifada” and company wrote numerous articles attacking the Syrian government for the humanitarian disaster, like Jabhat al-Nusra, the FSA and ISIS were/are mere daydream-constructs “the regime” and its “Shabiha” brought forth from thin air.
~ The Palestine Liberation Army (PLA), the Syrian Arab Army’s Palestinian branch, which has fought on numerous fronts throughout Syria and offered countless martyrs in the struggle against Daesh and its ideological counterparts.
~ Fatah al-Intifada, a Palestinian Resistance group which has been ultra-active in the ongoing fight to liberate Yarmouk. Many volunteers, like Tayseer Mousa and Waleed Suleiman, left their homes in the Damascus countryside city of Jaramana to defend their brethren. Portraits of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah can be found all over their offices.
~ Liwa Al-Quds, the third most powerful Syrian military force after the Syrian Arab Army and the Hizbullah-trained NDF according to Al-Masdar News. Liwa Al-Quds has been a tremendously key part of the battle for the liberation of Aleppo, particularly the camps of Handarat and Nayrab.
~ The PFLP-GC, led by the indefatigable Ahmad Jibril and known for their strong support of the democratically elected government in Damascus, these warriors have also been fighting in multiple arenas, from the capital to Aleppo to Latakia and elsewhere. They played an important role in the historic liberation of the besieged Shi’a towns Nubl and Al-Zahra, showing that there is a united Syrian-Palestinian-Lebanese-Iraqi-Iranian, Sunni-Shi’a, Muslim-Christian front against the usurping Zionist regime’s Wahhabi vassals.
~ Hizbullah moujahid Ali Fawzi Taha ( Haydar al-Hajj Jawad) from Bourj el-Barajneh. Born to a Palestinian father and a Lebanese mother, Ali was martyred during the liberation of the strategic, ancient city of Al-Quryatayn. He participated in many victories across Syria, including game-changers like Al-Qusayr and Al-Qalamoun. Considering he was a member of the Lebanese Islamic Resistance, the only Arab force to ever drive ‘Israel’ out from sovereign Arab lands, is it not significantly newsworthy that this hero had a Palestinian background?! If only he had been a BDS activist or an Amnesty International “researcher”, then Electronic “Intifada” would’ve assuredly profiled him.
~ Muhammad Rafeh, a beloved Palestinian-Syrian actor from the popular TV show Bab al-Hara and outspoken supporter of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Muhammad had lost family members a year before in the Zionist entity’s massacre of protesters in the occupied Golan Heights on Naksa Day and was also known for his strong stance against the ‘Israeli’ enemy. The FSA kidnapped Muhammad and slaughtered him for standing with the Syrian government; very “revolutionary”, wouldn’t you say?
~ Archbishop Atallah Hanna, Palestine’s highest-ranking Orthodox Christian authority and a fiery, BLISTERING vocal backer of the Syrian Arab Republic. Not only has Theodosios of Sebastia spoken in no uncertain terms about the aggression against Syria being a Zionist plot, but he’s also defended Islam and the importance of Muslim-Christian unity in the face of Takfirism at length. The Archbishop is a true Arab hero and is undoubtedly on the path to sainthood.
~ Samer al-Issawi, Palestine’s most epic hunger striker (277 days) and a living legend in every sense of the phrase; the man’s will is of such an unbreakable nature that it will forever echo in history and forever haunt the Zionist enemy. Samer, whose fam goes way back with both the PFLP and the DFLP, supports the Syrian Arab Republic and stands firmly against the war on this sovereign nation. His steadfast anti-Imperialism only adds to his larger-than-life character. Yet, apart from PFLP and DFLP affiliated media, this fact remains largely unknown.
~ Palestinians across occupied Falasteen, not to mention Syrians throughout the Golan Heights, have protested in full support of the Syrian Arab Republic and Hizbullah on too many occasions to make mention of here. And we’re not talking about minuscule rallies but bright, rowdy, militant, BIG demonstrations with seas of Syrian Arab Republic flags waving and portraits of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad standing tall. Not even one of these events was covered by “Palestine Solidarity Movement” mainstreamers.
The evidence presented here is only the tip of the iceberg. No doubt that some Palestinians, like some traitorous Iraqis, Syrians and Lebanese, joined the destabilization scheme, but when we get down to the nitty gritty, like most Syrians, most of Syria’s Palestinian citizens back the Syrian Arab Republic, the only Arab nation that has given them a home, supported their righteous cause and treated them as equals. It is shameful beyond shameful that these truths and more were not only ignored but deceptively covered up by “Palestine Solidarity Movement” activists to push a cookie-cutter propaganda line that meshed with the increasingly toothless nature of “solidarity” speak and praxis, not to mention the worldview of their Jewish and Khaleeji “colleagues”. To their credit, Electronic “Intifada” did drop a few pieces on ‘Israeli’ connections to Al-Qaeda, but these articles were released long after the Zionist-Takfiri alliance had been established and documented by pro-Syria sites, and, to add typical insult to injury, every last one of the posts included the Zionist-media-mandated condemnations of the baby-eating, puppy-killing, kitten-stomping “Assad regime”, thus rendering them worthless and disingenuous. Simply put, to defend Palestine today is to defend Syria and vice versa, for as Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah declared years ago, the Syrian Arab Republic is the backbone of the Mouqawamah and only a fool or a traitor would sit idly by as his backbone is being broken. So what category do the “activists” of the “Palestine Solidarity Movement” fall under? Fools? Traitors? Or a lil’ bit of both?
Nevertheless, the above-discussed Palestinian groups and individuals who have safeguarded Syria and who are all heroes, should be saluted for their bravery, their anti-Zionist vision and their sacrifices. Let Ali Abunimah, Rania Khalek, Phil Weiss and such gatekeepers keep getting goo-goo-eyed over the fraudulent Zionist liar Bernie Sanders and other like-similar persons who are in fact devils out to hurt Palestine and preserve the ‘Israeli’ tumor. Just one more confirmation of their treachery that goes back to the launch of the US-Zionist PSYOP known as the “Arab Spring”. Again, let them do their dirt. We in the Resistance camp will continue telling the true story of our Palestinian brethren and keep standing shoulder-to-shoulder with them on both the military and political front lines, until all of Syria is purged of the Takfiri virus and every single centimeter of Palestine is cleansed of Zionist pollution. Insha’ALLAH. #LongLiveSyria #Ta7yaFalasteen
