    Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
    I’d be cold as a Zionist and rich as Adelson
    That turned all those good hearts away

    Emad Burnat at the Oscars . I think Palestine is really oozing nicely into the consciousness of the world. The Zionist capacity for self deception continues. And Israel sinks further into the sludge of religious nihilism. The battle reminds me of St Patrick versus paganism. The false god of hasbara has no reach, no power .

    It’s another good week for ahla Filisteen

      I hope you are not equating the original Celtic Gods with the false god of St Patrick’s. After many generations many of us have concluded that our pagan ancestors had a more wholesome spiritual life than that silliness imported with the Christian desert god. Can you imagine a worse fit. People of Northern Europe worshiping a deity that finds heat and low humidity the image of hell. Our pagans knew hell as cold, foggy, icy winters. They loved sunny warm days. And worshiped accordingly. They also worshiped the animals that gave them life. The desert monotheist denounced our very sensible notion of placing the cow as a central deity.

      It is true St. Patrick won, but that does not mean he was right. There might just be a reckoning with the growing realization that St Patrick’s church consists of corrupt officials and pedophiles.

        As George Carlin (who was brought up Irish Catholic ..me too) used to say “I believe in the Sun because I can see it” Miss that brilliant comedian. But he left us with some truthful zingers

        Seeing is believing?

        Well, you can also see the achievement of Zionism, which its founders had only dreamed of and described in artistic tones. Is it something you can believe in?

        Are there anti-racists who don’t believe in racism, but like it when they see it?

        Perhaps sometimes it can be better to believe in something you can’t see after all?

        Seeing is believing.

        Which is why the Zionists are desparate to see the public from seeing. From seeing what thet are doing in Palestine. And what they are doing in Washington DC

        Or better yet, as Abraham said something like: “I don’t believe in the sun because I can’t see it at night. It can’t be godly like the pagans around me seem to think, nor can the tree control my destiny nor objects of stone.” The great rationalist if there ever was. A few Greek philosophers reached the same conclusion.

        I agree with you on the pagan respect for nature- the Native Americans are the same, they will be proven right too but there was something I read about St Patrick that reminded me of Israel. The commonly accepted story is that he drove snakes out of Ireland but this seems to be a mistranslation of a 7th century document . There was a pagan cult based in Co Cavan who dominated the political scene pre Christianity and they had a snake “brand” and were known as the snakes. There was a big battle in front of their HQ between their army and that of the saint and they lost. They threatened fire and brimstone from their pagan Gods but nothing happened. And that was the end of them.

        I think the bots will be the same. Their power is based on fear- US politicians are afraid of them. Palestinians are supposed to be afraid of them. When the plug is pulled they’ll scream blue murder. But nothing will happen.

    Why 5 Broken Cameras or The Gatekeepers could not have won at the Oscars:
    Jonathan Cook:
    “Guy Davidi, the Israeli co-director of 5 Broken Cameras, one of the finalists, said industry insiders had warned him that pressure was being exerted on the Academy to stop the films winning the award.
    “Many people in Hollywood are working very hard to make sure that neither film wins,” he said. “From Israel’s point of view, an Oscar would be a public relations disaster and mean more people get to see our films.””
    Not that we couldn’t figure it out mind you.

    It must have been truly bizarre for the Burnat family to be in the unreal world of Hollywood given the reality they must face every day. I watched just until the Documentary category hoping to get a glimpse of the family, but didn’t even get that. It is fitting for our time that Argo got the Best Picture award, a jingoist fantasy propaganda film claiming to be based on true events.

    Burnat’s son ends the speech with: Freedom.

    After the Oscars I came here to write a comment regarding the fact that Burnat’s film wasn’t picked for the Oscar and it ended like this:

    Your struggle and tragedy will inspire other Burnats to shoot for the stars with the power of truth and the ultimate prize will be yours: FREEDOM!

    Unconsciously, the same way Gibreel would punctuate the Oscar speech, I ended my comment. Good omen. Out of the mouths of babes… This child will not be denied and silenced. He will witness justice for Palestinians in his lifetime.

      I want to add: No more Palestinian children born under Zionist oppression! Palestinians need ALL of us to help make Gibreel’s wish come true.

    I thought the Arabic song at the funeral in the movie was enchanting and would like to see it translated. However this part was very sad.

    A nice speech; I’d have applauded. And I’d have lamented that Emad has people like you for friends.

      So you didn’t understand the import of the speech, or the film. And the best way of ignoring Emad and the millions like him is to patronise him like this.

      “A nice speech; I’d have applauded. And I’d have lamented that Emad has people like you for friends.”

      You’re a piece of work, hoppy. Because although you’d say you’d applaud, it is your friends who are inflicting this injury on this man, and you are cheering them on. So stuff your applause, because until you work to stop your friends from their satanic crimes, they’re your crimes, too.
