Heroes are rare; they are tragic and inspiring at the same time. Such a real-life hero is Zakaria Zubeidi, 45, from Jenin in Palestine. A man of brawn and brain, of sword and harp, he was an al Aqsa Brigade commander as well as the director of the Freedom Theatre. Years ago, the Sunday Times called him ‘one of Israel’s most wanted and implacable enemies’. A cat of nine lives, he survived many Israeli assassination attempts; he had been in and out of jail many times; he got his first Israeli bullet at 13; his film premiere at 14.

A few days ago, he staged an audacious escape from Israel’s high security prison, together with five other convicts. They dug a 20 yard-long tunnel with their spoons, just like the Count of Monte Cristo, and emerged outside the walls, squeezing through a narrow communication channel. This brave, nay impossible feat encouraged the captive Palestinians and gave them a second wind when they were exhausted and desperate. The people in the Holy Land and the large Palestinian diaspora held its collective breath following their escape and prayed for them to reach safety.

It is normal for humans to empathise with fugitives, rather than pursuers. Young readers of Uncle Tom’s Cabin thus followed the plight of Eliza, child in tow, crossing the frozen Ohio River from bondage to freedom, escaping the murderous dogs and slave catchers. Alas, Zakaria never reached the safe shore. In the Dixie of the 1830s, there were courageous and noble white people who harboured the runaway black slaves. Germans and Russians, Poles and Frenchmen provided refuge for the Jews that escaped from the camps. In Israel 2021, not a single Jew offered the fugitives water and food nor helped a Palestinian runaway; everyone who saw them immediately informed police, said the authorities. In a few days, four starved prisoners were hunted down, beaten up and taken back to jail; two are still at large.

I saw on Israeli TV news four shackled prisoners in the court. Zakaria had been badly beaten. His capturers broke his ribs and jaw, while he was already handcuffed. His face was grim and stern like that of a suffering Christ before the crooked court of Synedrion. It was a sad sight, the return of the hero to the dark dungeons of the Jewish state. But then, he was born and brought up under the occupation. His story is the story of the cheated generation that came to the fore after the great betrayal.

In 1993, the State of Israel and the PLO signed the Oslo accords; this agreement certified by handshake on the White House lawn promised Palestinians full independence after five years of transition. The Jews reneged on the deal. While individual Jews can be honest and honourable; as a collective they are extremely untrustworthy. It comes from a Jewish superiority complex, of a refusal to obey the rules established for lesser species; of feeling they can do whatever they find expedient. Fair play is not a Jewish idea at all.

The Palestinians, swindled by Israel, had nobody to turn to; they responded by initiating the Second Intifada, the rising taking place in 2000. It was the pivotal event for Zakaria’s generation; for me, too. I was radicalised by the Intifada, by the dishonesty and cruelty of the Jewish state and by the courage of Palestinian resisters. In 2001, I began writing in English to an international audience; next year, in 2002, I entered the church, parting with Jewry.

The Jews became radicalised, too: The support of US Jewry for the 9/11 narrative and for the War on Terror can’t be understood outside of this context: the Oslo accords, reneging on Oslo, the Intifada and 9/11 are links of one chain. Before 9/11, Jews were condemned for reneging on Oslo and for the bloody suppression of the Intifada. After 9/11 they could smash the Palestinians with all their might. For young men like Zakaria even survival was problematic.

Zakaria deserves a Plutarch to write up his life, but I’ll do what I can, until a Plutarch comes along. Zakaria was born and grew up in the Jenin Refugee Camp, a place where the expelled Palestinians from Haifa’s Carmel were corralled in 1948 by the victorious Jews. His father was an English language teacher; he died rather young, leaving his widow and their eight children to survive.

Zakaria was 11, when the First Intifada began. It was a spontaneous protest, caused by the enclosure of common Palestinian lands and their transfer to Jewish settlers. Jewish lawyers, predominantly ladies of liberal persuasion, applied the English 16th century idea of ‘enclosure of the commons’ and claimed all commonly held lands as belonging to Jews only. In England this policy caused ‘enclosure riots’; as it did in Palestine. In response to Jewish land grabbing, unarmed peasants took the nearest handy stone and threw it at Jewish settlers’ cars. The Jews replied with fire. Hundreds of unarmed Palestinians were shot and killed. The children suffered most.

ORDER IT NOW

Boys like Zakaria lived dangerously in the camp. The Israeli army treated refugee camps as their hunting ground. They would drive in on their Jeeps and shoot around, terrorising children and grown ups. Chris Hedges, of the New York Times, wrote of their modus operandi in his Gaza Diary, published in Harper’s Magazine: “the refugee camp … is still and peaceful. Children play with scrap-paper kites and ragged soccer balls. Suddenly two IDF jeeps with loudspeakers pull up. They immediately taunt the boys with obscenities, luring them up to the fence. Then [a] percussion grenade explodes. The boys, most no more than 10 or 11 years old, scatter, running clumsily across the heavy sand. They descend out of sight behind a sandbank in front of me… The soldiers shoot; the bullets from the M-16s tumble end over end through the children’s slight bodies. Children have been shot in other conflicts I have covered but I have never before watched soldiers entice children like mice into a trap and murder them for sport.”

Instead of being cowed, the camp boys like Zakaria took the danger in their stride. The daredevils would throw stones at invading jeeps like the 13-year old boy, Farris Odeh did. Farris was the Palestinian kid we saw throwing stones at Israeli tanks with the nonchalance of a village boy chasing away a ferocious dog. It was a dangerous game: the famous picture of Farris was taken on October 29, and a week later, on 8th of November, a Jewish sniper murdered him in cold blood.

In similar circumstances, 13-year-old Zakaria had been shot by a Jewish soldier. The bullet entered his leg; he spent six months in hospital and went through multiple operations. He remains lame to this very day. The soldier has never been tried or punished for shooting a child, but a Jewish soldier is practically never tried or punished for wounding or murdering a Palestinian child, and there are thousands of murdered children.

As Zakaria recuperated, his mother (who was a great believer in peaceful coexistence with Israeli Jews) invited a new theatre company to do rehearsals at her home. She gave them the upper floor of their house, fed them and helped them. It was a children’s theatre, performed by camp children and for camp children, organized by an unusual person, Arna Mer. This Jewish communist lady “betrayed her people” (as many Jews were prone to say) and married an Arab, an Orthodox Christian Palestinian Arab, also a communist, even a prominent member of Communist Party. They called their son Sputnik, as a sign of their love for the Soviet Union, the beacon of light for such liberation movements. Eventually Sputnik found his name too exotic, and changed it to ‘Juliano Mer’. He became a friend of Zakaria. Together they acted on stage; the company consisted of six or eight children. The theatre was called The Stone Theatre. It was around 1988-89, at the height of the First Intifada, the rising that convinced Israel to seek an accommodation and enter Oslo accords with Palestinian leadership.

Years later, Juliano Mer made a film Arna’s Children, based on their memories and video archive. It turned out that the majority of the young actors were killed by Jews by that time. Zakaria’s mother was also killed by a Jewish sniper, shot through the window, while she was at home. One hour later, the same sniper shot her elder son and killed him. Their house, which had served as a home for the Stone Theatre, was bulldozed together with many other homes in Jenin.

Jenin was the place for a Jewish onslaught on the Palestinians in 2002. Recently the Israeli court banned Jenin, Jenin, a film about these fateful events, but you still can find it on YouTube. Zakaria was a great fighter; he became the commander of Jenin’s Al Aqsa Brigade. He survived four assassination attempts by the Israelis: in 2004, they murdered five Palestinians, including a 14-year-old child, while targeting a vehicle suspected of carrying Zakaria. On another occasion they killed 9 Palestinians, but Zakaria escaped.

Zakaria became widely known and respected in the West Bank and even in Israel. He was befriended by Yasser Arafat; he supported the election of Mahmud Abbas, Arafat’s successor. An Israeli woman, Tali Fahima, came to Jenin to support Zakaria and serve as his human shield. Israel arrested her in 2004 and she spent three years in prison for ‘aiding a terrorist organization’. After her release, she converted to Islam having become totally disillusioned by the massive Jewish support for the bloody punitive actions against Palestinians. Zakaria, who spoke perfect Hebrew and had many Israeli friends, was also disappointed by the Israeli Jewish Left. None defended him during these terrible years, despite all the efforts of his late mother to build relations with Israelis.

However, the uprising was defeated. And Zakaria continued his struggle by other means, establishing, together with Juliano Mer, his childhood friend, a new and bigger theatre company, the Freedom Theatre of Jenin. It is still around, and even prospers, though Zakaria is now in jail, and Juliano Mer was killed by unknown assassins. In 2007, Zakaria accepted the amnesty offered by Israelis to the Fatah fighters, though by its conditions he couldn’t leave Jenin. He abided by the amnesty conditions, but it didn’t help him: a few years later, Israel rescinded the amnesty. In 2019, Zakaria was caught and sent to jail for life.

He would rot in jail like other prisoners, and every second Palestinian of his generation had been in an Israeli jail for some part of his life. But then, the audacious breakout brought his name back to our awareness. He returned hope into the hearts of the Palestinians and their friends, but alas, for a short time.

It happened exactly twenty years after 9/11, the event that empowered the Jews to smash Palestinian resistance. Nowadays, the Jews can do whatever they want with their captive goyim. People aren’t even allowed to object. At the recent Tokyo Olympic games, an Algerian judoka Fethi Nourine refused to pair with an Israeli sportsman, saying his support for the Palestinian cause made it impossible for him to compete against an Israeli. The International Judo Federation promptly suspended the brave Algerian for ten years.

In the discourse, the Jews possess an unassailable position, and whoever demurs finds himself jobless and castigated as a ‘bigot’. Every time I post an item about Palestine, Facebook’s Zuckerberg bans me for a week. Never was Jewish dominance so complete. Before 9/11, the right wing was traditionally anti-Jewish. Nowadays, the European and American nationalist Right accept the rules of the game. It’s hard to find a ‘fascist’ or ‘white nationalist’ who doesn’t worship Israel. The Jewish ‘left’ in Israel avidly supports the current Israeli Prime Minister Bennett who is as strong a Jewish chauvinist as has ever held this position; and Bennett says openly that Palestinians will never be free.

And we also have lost our freedom. Freedom to roam the land, freedom to have and voice our opinion. Freedom to refuse a dubious ‘medical’ treatment. What 9/11 started, Corona completed. We are all Palestinians now.

ORDER IT NOW

However, as I watched the stern Christ-like face of Zakaria Zubeidi in the courtroom, I thought that despite all efforts of the Synedrion, the suffering and crucified Christ came back to life. So will Palestine. So will the World. Resurrection is as inevitable as Death, and it beats Death.

    My public support for an escaped Palestinian prisoner caused an outcry among Israelis. My crime? I called him a hero and said I understood why Palestinians resort to violent struggle.
    Within an hour of my Facebook post about the character of Zakaria Zubeidi, one of six Palestinian prisoners who recently escaped from Gilboa prison and among the four subsequently recaptured, Facebook had banned me for three days for violating their “community guidelines”.
    I wasn’t particularly surprised. I knew that many Israelis would promptly report it and get it wiped. That’s because I insist on seeing Zubeidi and his comrades as freedom fighters and not as terrorists. And I insist on providing the context for Zubeidi’s tragic, heroic path through life. –
    Another excellent piece on Zubeidi by an Israeli peace activist.

  2. Thank you so much for this story. It explains very well why I admire you and the Palestinians so much. I’m reposting this to my friends and family.

    The escape shatters the illusion of state invincibility, hence the savage treatment on recapture. The Turkish state has murdered at least one “terrorist” prisoner who escaped, after recapturing him. Probably a common reflex of tyrants.

    @israel shamir

    Why do you feel no compassion for the defenseless civilians murdered by assassins under Zakaria Zubeidi’s direct orders?

    Their names must not be forgotten:

        –David Peretz, 48, of Beit She’an
        –Haim Amar, 56, of Beit She’an
        –Shaul Zilberstein, 36, of Upper Nazareth
        –Ehud (Yehuda) Avitan, 54, of Beit She’an
        –Mordechai Avraham, 44, of Beit She’an
        –Ya’acov Lary, 35, of Beit She’an

    Let me remind you of the details. (1)

    The 2002 Beit She’an attack, which took place during November 28, 2002, was a terrorist attack carried out by members of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in the city of Beit She’an, Israel. Gunmen opened fire and threw grenades at the Likud party polling station where party members were casting their votes in the Likud primary.

    Six Israeli civilians were killed during the incident and 34 civilians were injured.

    On November 28, 2002 at 3:20 pm two Palestinians, Omar and Yousef Rub from Jalboun, drove in a stolen vehicle into Beit She’an and parked it in front of Likud headquarters. Entering the polling station, they detonated grenades and fired automatic weapons at close range into lines of people waiting to cast their ballots. Soon thereafter a battle developed which ended with the two terrorists shot dead by a border policeman who happened to be in the area. One of the assailants was wearing an explosives belt under his jacket.

    Four Israelis were killed in the attack, and two others died in the hospital from their injuries. Dozens of people were wounded, including three sons of the former Israeli Foreign Minister David Levy.

    An eyewitness living near the Likud offices told the media that one of the gunmen laughed as he shot people. “I opened the window and I simply saw the terrorist standing, smiling, laughing and shooting in all directions.

    When will non-indegnous Muslims stop killing native Palestinian Jews? Every murder makes things worse for the Muslim occupiers.

    Do you really think that laughing while cutting down the helpless generates sympathy?

    The Muslim colonies in Judea & Samaria have failed. Trying to keep land stolen from Infidels has failed. Why not consider real solutions that might work?

    PEACE 😇

    The permit system put in place in the early 1990s which requires that all Palestinians obtain military issued permits to move between the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem or to travel abroad is now complemented by a permanent system of roadblocks, gates, checkpoints, the Wall and other obstacles to movement in the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and the Gaza blockade.

    The existence of honest and honorable Jews is unavailing and largely irrelevant to the Palestinians or to any nation bearing the brunt of Jewish depredations. Individual Jews act collectively, and this highly organized “community” expresses the ruthless and hostile will of the overwhelming majority.

    The above mentioned sentiment explains the following:

    “Zakaria, who spoke perfect Hebrew and had many Israeli friends, was also disappointed by the Israeli Jewish Left. None defended him during these terrible years, despite all the efforts of his late mother to build relations with Israelis.”

    It’s Cain and Abel all over again and one of them will end up forfeiting their right (hopefully, not their lives en masse) and since money governs more than morals, I am afraid, the Palestinians will lose. It’s a sad story!

    Next week. while Zakaria endures Jewish imprisonment, my son will take his young child on a scavenger hunt in the autumn woods.

    It’s not Israel or Israelis they’re worshipping but the very phallic symbol that’s money, because it’s controlled by Jews.

    Hate, and I mean a pure, burning hate, can drive a man to do extraordinary things. The Israelis should know this better than anyone. 75 years after the WW2 they are still looking under every bed for German persecutors. The hunters are of course people who were never in a concentration camp themselves but they hate, or have some sort of hate propagandised and drilled into them.

    What about the people who have experienced brutality themselves, personally, and hate. Theirs is a hate born of direct discrimination. Worse still, they instil this into their children and grandchildren, just like the Jews do. The only difference is that Israeli kids can check out their torment via film. Palestinian children get to check out their own torment every single day, personally !

    If history is anything to go by, the Jews will tell you that they will never forget and their tormentors will be pursued to the ends of the earth and end of time.

    Do they believe they have cornered the market on hate and revenge ? Or do they in their arrogance believe only they can exact retribution and like the superior race they claim to be they will escape payback ? Its a remarkable stance, naive in the extreme.

    The people who claim to be victims victimize others doling out worse than they received themselves. God help Israel when the worm turns. History has shown time and time again that “every dog has his day”.

    While individual Jews can be honest and honourable; as a collective they are extremely untrustworthy. It comes from a Jewish superiority complex, of a refusal to obey the rules established for lesser species; of feeling they can do whatever they find expedient. Fair play is not a Jewish idea at all.

    Thank You Israel for this beautiful article. I had no idea how predatory the IDF is upon Palestinian civilians. It is truly nauseating.

    After my baptism in 2000, I would spend the Jewish sabbath in Jerusalem (my only day off from work as a low level unarmed security guard, working with very discontent Russian and Ethiopian Jewish immigrants) sitting in the Orthodox section of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and then going to an internet cafe in either the Christian or Muslim quarters of the Old City. I instinctively avoided the Western Wall area and the Jewish quarter. I couldn’t stand the arrogance and smugness of these Jews wallowing in money and privilege and praying to an ugly stone wall that was erected by Herod, the Edomite usurper of David’s Throne.

    One day I watched the Mel Gibson film THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST on a pirated dvd I obtained from a Palestinian video store, necessitated because the Israeli government (“the only democracy in the Middle East”) banned this powerful movie. The scene was comical, because I was sitting in an internet cafe in the new part of Jerusalem, watching the dvd on an internet computer, surrounded by black clothed ultra Orthodox youths who were ogling internet porn on the nearby computers. Not one of them noticed Christ’s suffering so vividly portrayed right next to them!

    I increasingly think that Orwell’s depiction of a future of brutality where a boot smashes into the face of humanity refers to the terror reign of Jewish Power. I’m not sure Orwell intended it this way, but it seems apt. What disgusts me even more than occupation and brutalization of the Palestinians is the way the Israelis gloat over their suffering and humiliation. It’s an incredibly cruel and satanic attitude: to rejoice in the degradation suffering and misery of others, especially when you inflict it upon them yourself.

    Your article reinforces the sense of despair I feel most of the time, even far away in Colorado, the state of eco-yuppie outdoors sports flakes, so I cling to your final paragraph for a faint sense of hope:

    And we also have lost our freedom. Freedom to roam the land, freedom to have and voice our opinion. Freedom to refuse a dubious ‘medical’ treatment. What 9/11 started, Corona completed. We are all Palestinians now…. However, as I watched the stern Christ-like face of Zakaria Zubeidi in the courtroom, I thought that despite all efforts of the Synedrion, the suffering and crucified Christ came back to life. So will Palestine. So will the World. Resurrection is as inevitable as Death, and it beats Death.

    Also spelled ‘kafir’ or ‘kaffir’, Kuffar is a highly derogatory Arabic term used to refer to non-Muslims, though it is usually directed less against “People of the Book” (Christians and Jews) and more against others (Hindus, Buddhists, Shintoists, etc). Separate laws govern Muslims and kuffars in an Islamic state with kuffars being viciously suppressed.

    Islam and many religions may state things such you mentioned but it does not effect us at all in the west. Jewish religious groupthink in western MSM effects all of us every second of the day in the west.

    https://newcreationcivilization.com/origins-of-jewish-censorship-and-undermining-of-american-christianity/

    Jewish involvement in censorship, on the other hand, is without exception always self-interested. As mentioned above, Jews are extremely liberal in their advocacy for the freedom to view or consume material regarded as morally destructive, but have been nothing less than relentless in their pursuit of legal methodologies and other forms of pressure designed to limit any speech or activity that would bring them into criticism or otherwise harm their interests as a group.

    Look at Facebook or any western MSM, it is Jewish groupthink censorship 24/7. It is relentless. It is nice to have a respite from that totalitarian nonsense here at Unz.

    What Israel Shamir mentions in this article is unknown to anyone who reads Jewish led western MSM. It should be more well known. No religious/ethnic groupthink should be dominating us all 24/7. It has gone on too long, at least since 12.23.1913. Humanity is yearning to be free of totalitarian Jewish religious groupthink enforcement.

    Years later, Juliano Mer made a film Arna’s Children, based on their memories and video archive. It turned out that the majority of the young actors were killed by Jews by that time. Zakaria’s mother was also killed by a Jewish sniper, shot through the window, while she was at home. One hour later, the same sniper shot her elder son and killed him. Their house, which had served as a home for the Stone Theatre, was bulldozed together with many other homes in Jenin.

    CHRISTIAN IDOLATERS?

    According to the Noahide Laws, Christians who worship Jesus Christ are guilty of idolatry.

    The Noachides & Rome’s Chief Rabbi, Riccardo Di Segni

    [MORE]

    The consequence is that, according to the literal opinion, the Christian would not be on the path of salvation’ since he is guilty of idolatry…

    “Di Segni concludes: ‘If one must literally apply the Noachide system of laws, it [the punishment of death] would be applied to all, so that the Noachides might observe it. Likewise, the punishment of death would apply to what treats forbidding the worship of strange gods,’ in view of monotheism.”

    Source: “The Noachides and Rome’s Chief Rabbi, Riccardo Di Segni,” Father Francesco Ricossa, Sodalitium, French Edition, No. 53, July, 2002, translated by Suzanne M. Rini, Trans Et Alia, Vol. 3, Nowa 3, Sept. 2002.

    The Chief Rabbi of Rome was putting the Roman Catholic hierarchy on notice that the Jewish elite, which even now controls the world from behind the scenes, will soon have legal authority to prosecute and execute Christians for the crime of idolatry. According to the Sodalitium article, not one of the Vatican prelates protested the agenda of the Jews: “Today, the unthinkable has been realized. But the Cardinals present at the lecture of…Rabbi Di Segni, keep silent.” Nor did the prelates question the Jewish power in a court of law.

    Kingdom of Israel: Extremist Rabbis Dream of Jewish Monarchy, With a Special Role for Non-Jews
    Regarding non-Jews who do not observe the Seven Laws of Noah, they add that the Rambam says gentiles we conquer become like slaves to us; it is permissible not to return a loan to a gentile, since the failure to involve them in decisions amounts to less than expropriating a loan as it does not involve financial loss.

    According to WikiNoah. a United Noachide Council is training Yeshiva students from every country to be Noachide Judges:

    The Orthodox Jewish yeshivas are also teaching Christians. This is a trap for Zionist and Messianic Christians. They will not be learning the Torah but the oral traditions of the Rabbis, and Jewish magic from the Talmud, and the Kabbalah, which is Jewish mysticism and the Soul of Judaism.

    There is a remarkable movie version of the Zakaria story presented in this article (as well as from other sources referenced in the article) that is screaming to be made. Its protagonist (Zakaria and his unfortunate cohorts) puts to shame the vapid comic book woke super-hero commodity movies being rubber-stamped into existence today. There are so many existential questions that can and should be examined publicly in such a film creation. If done well, it would have almost universal appeal for audiences today…except perhaps for some portion (large or small I cannot say) of the Israeli population. The question is, who would fund such a film? Since such financing power lies mostly in the hands of committed zionists and their fellow-traveling goyim, the obstacles to making the film would be formidable. It’s even doubtful the powers that be would countenance fund-raising efforts on crowd-source websites. That’s most unfortunate…for humanity. The current powers that be seemed hell-bent on starving humanity into submission to their will by depriving it of all spiritual and psychological nourishment…until we’re fit for nothing else except to be inserted as the human component of a human-machine hybrid system program. For these zionist powers, something like a Zakaria movie would be food too rich for humanity. They’d much rather substitute such satisfying sustenance with something like the meal-worm that the comic book woke super-hero movies provide.

    The Parable of the Good Samaritan

    25 And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”

    26 He said to him, “What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?”

    27 So he answered and said, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’ ”

    28 And He said to him, “You have answered rightly; do this and you will live.”

    29 But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

    30 Then Jesus answered and said: “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’ 36 So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?”

    37 And he said, “He who showed mercy on him.”

    Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

    That one little girl seems– without exaggeration– to have the courage of an Alexander or Julius Ceaser, In the ZOG, our billionaire class pours money into fraudulent garbage like BLM, while at the same time managing to ignore the strength and fearlessness of children like this,

    I really hope she made it to adulthood without being murdered by the Satanic Zionists.

    Speaking of Palestinian heroines, you don’t happen to know the name of that Palestinian girl with blondish, curly hair and blue eyes whom the Jews used to call “Shirley Templar” due to her semi-Nordic appearance a d her openly confronting the Zionists?
    She was in her early 20s I think and constantly being arrested and put into solitary confinement by the Zionist demons. Still never ceases to amaze me how the judenpresse will ignoreP the stories of girls like that fighting genuine talmudic, satan-possessed demons a d hold up great thunberg as an icon when some of these Palestinians ( and even Western volunteers like Rachel Corrie) literally face down and get run over by jew tanks– paid for with US taxes of course.

    The teenage Palestinian you mentioned, who confronted the Israeli army with her bare hands and inflexible patriotism is Ahed Tamimi.

    She protested her 15-year old cousin being shot in the head, at close range, by the putrid sub-human filth called IDF, and was condemned to 8 month in prison, aged 17.

    Ahed is a modest and much dignified young girl, although she receives much praise and honours from supporters of the Palestinian cause worldwide.

    Rachel Corrie was deliberately crushed to death by an IDF armoured bulldozer , aged only 23.

    She belonged to the exceptional elite within humankind who makes up saints and martyrs. Elite people recognise elite individuals: Rachel’s life and sacrifice are commemorated every year in Gaza by a youth football tournament named after her. She will never be forgotten.

    Thank you for reminding me of those names. There was going to be a. Off-Broadway play years ago titled ” My Name Is Rachel Corrie,” about her short life and brutal murder at the hands of these blood-sucking parasites. Not.suprisingly, a few days before its opening the spawns of satan managed to get it cancelled.

    Will never cease to amaze me how all these crowds in BLM never stop to ask themselves why the “leaders” of such movements never dare to mention Palestine a scythe and the christ jew and then end up with real estate portfolios worth tens of millions of dollars.

    Even if every insane holyco\$t claim of the Jews were true (“gas ovens, mastubation machines, etc…) were true, it would be worth another of ” much milion” Jews going through it all again just to give that one little girl from “jenin, jeni ” a dignified life of opportunity.

    This is a bit off topic and they may delete this, but ever since the entire Epstein thing (and I think even Mr. Shamir has written about this) I’ve become more a d more interested and convinced that Jewish Ritual Murder does indeed take place and that those who wrote about it– from little Hugh of Lincoln to Simon of Trent– knew what their society had witnessed and wrote about it faithfully.

    [MORE]

    For Christ”s sake, Epstein had a literal temple on his private island for Jewish ritual rape and molestation of underage ” shiksa” girls. To the best of my knowledge, the FBI has refused to dig on that island or use ground penetrating radar to search for bodies.

    I would be willing to bet a substantial amount that a meticulous search of that island would turn up the bodies of girls who had been tortured to death– historically, certain sects perform these human sacrifices near the time of purim.

    To be clear, not suggesting that your average jew dentist down the street is engaged in such things– but I AM suggesting that a small amount of Jews– carrying out some obscure, hate-filled ritual from the Talmud– could very well still be carrying out this rituals.

    Why hasn’t Wexner been arrested? Why haven’t they investigated missing girls from the greater Palm Beach area and then gone and dug up that island looking for human remain?

    My God, we as a society are sick unto death. And we are literally one crash away from true Weimar territory and people whoring out their prepubescent children for food. Whenever anyone asks you about ” the nazis,” change the subject and bring up the Weimar sewer that gave birth to the NSDAP with its child sex-change operations, drag queens, child whores, etc… we are headed directly ( and in some respects have already surpassed) the Weimar Telublic in many respects.
