  1. In Richard’s world, anyone who is arrested by Israel is a lovable peace activist or an innocent victim. It didn’t occur to him that Israel faces actual terrorism and actively fights to stop it.

    1. The man has not been charged with any offenses by either UAE or Jordan. In Israel, of course he’d be guilty just by virtue of belonging to Hamas & even if he didn’t they’d manufacture an association. If Israel hads real evidence of terror acts & presents that evidence in court & secures a conviction, then I have no problem with punishment. But Israel almost never does this, leaving most observers skeptical I’m afraid.

  2. “It appears too that if he had been extradited and imprisoned in Israel, this would’ve been doing the PA’s bidding as well, since it accuses him of fundraising and arms trafficking on behalf of Hamas. It’s quite a cozy, comfy relationship all these mukhabaratnikim”

    I think you are accusing the Fatah (which, curiously, you call “the PA”) (and PLO) leadership with putting their pro-Israel corruption and/or inter-Palestinian political fighting ahead of human rights and ahead of pro-Palestinian activity.

    Sadly, such accusation is no surprise. Hamas won the election (in part) because of Palestinian disaffection with perceived Fatah/PLO corruption.

    And Arab states get along and go along with friendly old Uncle Sam.

  3. “Divide et impera”. It worked for the Romans and it works for colonisators ever since. As for Palestine, some divisions (like religion) were there long before colonialism, some evolved as its natural consequences and some were carefully designed to facilitate domination.

    The Palestinian people are divided in quite a few dimensions. There are those in Palestine and those in the diaspora.
    Those in the diaspora are divided between those in Arab lands and those further afield. Those in Arab lands are divided between those in refugee camps and those out of them.
    Those in Palestine are divided between the ’48 Arabs (within the pre-’67 borders) and those in the occupied territories.
    Those within the ’67 borders are divided between Bedouins and non-Bedouins, between fully-collaborative communities (the Druze and some Bedouine tribes) and those less-collaborative (spread along a wide spectrum, from reluctant acceptance to active civil-resistance).
    Those in the territories are divided between those who live on their land and ’48 refugees, between those in the West Bank and those in Gaza, between secularists and Islamists, Between Hammas and Salafists, between Fatkh (Fatah) and the Popular Front remnants. The West Bank is also divided between various degrees of the oppression (East Jerusalem, zones A, B and C).

    These are just a few of the divisions that easily come to mind and I list them because each such crack invites exploitation by the occupying masters. Abbas willy-nilly finds himself serving Israeli interests not because he wants to but in order to mitigate (at least for some) the harm inflicted upon his whole people. This is for the Palestinian part in the story.

    As for the Arab part. Many (all?) Arab leaders hang on under the auspices of a foreign power – mostly the US – and they’re careful not to stray too far from its requirements. And the Americans, these days, seem to be more concerned with Israel’s perceived interests in the ME than with their very own interests.

  4. Jaffar Daghlas is a spitting image of my Israeli-American Jewish friend. It’s funny how Palestinians have Ashkenazi lookalikes amongst them and there is still an issue of “what you see before your eyes = everything” racism.
