Tawteen el Phalestiniyeen
worth the read.
Here’s the other half of the story.
Has anybody ever asked what Fateh al-Islam wants or why?
Finally we have an image for this mysterious group, and it doesn’t look good at all.
It heats up at minute 3:00.
Spokesperson of Fateh al-Islam is obviously trying to ignite sectarian strife among Lebanese. After finishing the clip, it is safe to say that he is forcing the Shiites and the Christians specifically, by his choice of division, to accept Palestinian naturalization among the Lebanese civil society.
In other words, getting things settled their way by force – or civil chaos, all in the good intention of Fatah al-Islams’ care to Lebanon’s own protection from the Zionist regime?
Related events in the past few weeks may shed light on the following occurrences, which I suggest any decent human being should ponder on:
– By the third week into March of 2007, a communique between Israel and the Arabs came out from the last Arab summit, a draft was set out to make peace with Israel (from the Arab nations that attended the summit), with the aim of creating an Israeli and Palestinian state side by side, with the borders of 1967. As well as a fair return to the Palestinian refugees. (in return, the Palestinians as well as Arab nations would recognize Israel as a state, hence a concrete fragile era of peace).
– Israel responds optimistically, but notably rejected the return of Palestinian refugees. Though Israeli political parties see the current Olmert government as being too weak to make such a big decision; either way, the file will definitely be forwarded to the next Israeli government for further looking into. (n.b. Barak came out first today to head of the Labor party in Israel, and off to the second round).
– In Lebanon, there is an all out majority against the so called ‘Tawteen” (or naturalization) of Palestinians in Lebanon. Being able to work and those mentioned by the Fatah al-Islam representative in the Levant, as he proudly claims to be.
– Skirmish brakes out at Nahr el Bared, four days into the battle the United States sends heavy weaponry to the Lebanese army to help the government defend its people and the Palestinians caught in between. Please refer to this post by the Red Cross, which describes some buildings that have been rubbled to the ground.
Palestinian refugees in Lebanon are numbered between 318 to 400’000 (U.N. and media sources). The gentleman representing Fatah a-Islam in the clip apparently is a breed of a second generation Palestinian refugees of Nahr el Bared. Most of the Palestinians do not affiliate themselves to Fateh al-Islam, to the extent where the original Fateh movement is convincing Fateh al-Islam to hand themselves in smoothly to the Lebanese authorities with lenient outcomes.
Can a theory be formulated by stating that Fateh al-Islam is being funded, motivated and supported by a foreign nation, and the possibility of a fake promise to Fatah al-Islam to be granted citizenship to Palestinians among Lebanese?
Just putting that out there as a thought. I hate conspiracies myself.
