The radical anarchist
Imagine, just for the sake of the point I want to make in this post, No'am Chomsky saying something like the quote, with one tiny alteration:
I don't like flags, and I don't like nationalisms but for Israel and the Jews, everything and anything.
BTW, what's an atheist secularist?
"Prof. Abukhalil dreams about the day Palestinians take over Israel's
institutions, towns, cities, malls, universities, etc etc. Here are some
of the fantasies he shares with his readers:
"... once Palestine is liberated,
I don't think that Hebrew poet living under a Palestinian flag (and
using the renamed George Habash International Airport) should be
harassed unless they harm the security of the anti-Zionist state."
" But your delusions
are good for us: you won't know what will hit you in the future in
response to all the war crimes that you have committed against our
"And once the Palestinian refugees are returned to their homes all over Palestine,
I will make sure that you get decent rents in the formerly Palestinian
refugee camps because we may be a bit short of space for the occupiers
incenses me or provokes me like watching scenes of "tourist" promotion
for the enemy state of Israel: I scream in my inside. The stones are
not yours. The flowers are not yours. The beaches are not yours.
The clouds are not yours. The blueness of the sky is not yours. All
will return to their owners. Then, everything will be more beautiful
and more splendid.)"
Abukhalil, let me re-iterate, is not some nutcase who fulminates on street corners, or a wild-eyed Islamist mullah in his Friday sermon. He is a respectable professor of political science at California State University, Stanislaus and visiting professor at UC, Berkeley.
