false alarm!!!

Just when we were getting excited....

We turned on Palestine TV this evening to read some breaking news out of Gaza, reporting that the Rafah Crossing will in fact NOT be opening tommorow, Tuesday, despite earlier reports to the contrary.

A friend who contacted the EU representatives stationed in Rafah confirmed the bad news, and thinks it might be because of reports in Haaretz that Ismail Hanniyeh was due to leave tommorow for a 3 week tour to different countries, and that the Israelis may have "intervened" to stop him.

Makes perfect usual...

According to Palestinian wires, there are over 3200 people waiting to cross, many directly in the border itself...

Our wait continues.

I would hope that you would be more open to debate and free discussion that accusing me of being fake in my concern. If you want to debate me on the issues, do that, but don't say that my concern for the issue is fake without saying something intelligent to back that up first.

It's not your concern for "the issue" that's fake.
Your concern for Um Yousuf is fake.

No better than the Israeli PMs, Labor and Likud both who kill children and then cluck cluck about how the Palestinians made them murder their children.

I actually posted a reply to your blog...on your blog...but I guess that being a Palestinian also disqualifies me from being read on your blog and was thus "linguistically cleansed" from it.

To quickly paraphrase the thrust of what I wrote: Zionism has made Palestine an unwelcome place for it's indigenous population with a form of Apartheid...of which Laila's experience is a direct example.

To quote you Zack, something you wrote to my -Brother in Arms- Abu Shaar:

"I would hope that you would be more open to debate and free discussion..."
