Palestinianism is Intersectionality on steroids

Guest Post

The Palestinianisation of western liberal/progressive thought has been gathering pace over the last few decades. While in the past limited to meaningless quadrant student politics and the committee rooms filled with the same old same old activists ranting at the world in distant institutions such as the UN and European parliament, it has started to gain more public traction and legitimacy.  Linda Sarsour, the Niqab wearing American Palestinian anti-Israel Feminist Activist, recently co-chaired the Washington women’s march after Trumps inauguration. We saw an almost universal liberal embrace of Sarsour accompanied by a distancing of US Jewish feminists who support Israel. Lifelong feminists such as Phylis Chesler one of the founders of US modern feminism and a Jewish supporter of Israel has been given the cold shoulder by the US Feminist movement. Sarsour a champion of Palestinianism declared that a Jew cannot be both a feminist and a Zionist. Jewish American Women are no longer welcome in the feminist movement if they overtly support Israel. We see Palestinianism now migrating from the narrow chat forums of the international progressive power elites to centre stage as the defining grievance of postmodern intersectionality. Palestinianism now trumps feminism, children’s rights, gay rights and any other rights all which must now take a back seat to the grievances of Arab Islamic Palestine.  

What is Palestinianism you may well ask? In its original form nutted together by the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) in the 1970s, it was a strategic tool created to assist in the replacement of Jewish identity, history and culture in historic Judea and Samaria (holy land)with a new legitimate Arab Islamic “Palestinian” narrative. In so doing, it is designed to undermine the legitimacy of the Jewish historic claims to their birthright, branding those claims false and there for illegitimate and unsubstantiated. Thus if the Jews are out, then they are to be replaced by the legitimate, dispossessed and aggrieved “Palestinians” who are now in. A simple good guy/bad guy paradigm is then applied to the Arab Israeli conflict whereby everything the Jews/Israelis do is illegitimate and everything the Palestinians /Arabs do is legit. In short Jews/Israelis defending themselves and their national rights is deemed aggression and whatever the Palestinians do whether merely belligerent or more extreme suicide terror attacks against Jewish civilians becomes heroic resistance. (For a more in depth definition and explanation read Bat Yeor’s essay at November 2011 edition).

Befuddled by the vapors of Palestinianism, the recent NZ Government sponsored Security Council Resolution 2334 encapsulated everything the OIC has been propagating for two generations. McCully failed to note that by adopting and running with the Palestinian Islamic Narrative he in fact was making a declaration that the Jews have no connection to Jerusalem or their historic lands of Judea and Samaria and their claims are therefore illegitimate, their history false and their Bible a sham. As Christianity grew out of this “Jewish falsehood” McCully ipso facto discarded Christian narratives and claims in the holy land and middle east trashing their New Testament for the real truth pushed by the OIC, Palestnianism through the holy Koran.

Perhaps McCully was that naïve, more likely he was just a duped useful cog in an unrelenting global campaign being waged by the OIC and its progressive allies on the world stage to remove and replace Israel for good.

So all of this is bad for the Jews, but you will rightfully ask, what has it got to do with me?

On their way to achieving their goal the OIC has brandished Palestinianism like a wrecking ball destroying or rendering impotent every international institution Palestine manages to gain recognition in. From the UN Security Council, UN Human Rights Council, FIFA, WHO, UNESCO and most recently INTERPOL we see the severe negative impact of Palestinianism. Meetings at these institutions waste an inordinate amount of their time debating and voting through anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian resolutions instead of dealing with the real issues at hand.

With the recent admission of Palestine to UNESCO, UNESCO lost over 25% of its funding (US, Israel, Japanese defunding) and can no longer support or manage projects it is responsible for in the field. What they can do is pass resolutions declaring that the Jews have no connection to Jerusalem (even though Jerusalem is a Hebrew word from the Jewish bible). With Palestine now in INTERPOL, both the Israelis, Americans and a number of other western nations have declared they will ignore arrest warrants issued by Palestine and will have to limit intelligence shared with INTERPOL for fear of it being leaked to Islamic terror organisations. This will without a doubt affect the war on global crime and terror and make the world less safe for all of us.

Further, the corruption of the international aid and donor industry by Palestinianism is destroying international faith placed in NGO’s and UN bodies to distribute honestly monies donated by individuals or granted by donor Governments for common folk Palestinians on the ground. The shenanigans of UNWRA, which has been infiltrated by HAMAS, very likely will result in its defunding and demise. World Vision donations were suspended in 2016 by both European and the Australian Government after it was discovered that tens of millions of Aid monies were diverted to the terrorist group Hamas. We also now find that half of all USA Government aid to the Palestinian Authority is being used to pay imprisoned or dead terrorist stipends with the amounts paid calculated according to how many Jews they killed. The US Congress is currently debating laws to strip the Palestinian Authority of future aid. The big losers of course are the Palestinian Arabs who live on the ground in the Palestinian Territories.  Absurd? In effect we now find that western Governments and Aid organisations have been taking part in the funding of the OIC Islamic war against Israel. Hopefully the world will wake up before all the good in these organisations is leeched out by the flood of corruption and deceit inserted by Palestinianism.

To sum up Palestinianism could best be described as a militant mutant postmodern ideology based on equal parts of bullshit and moral equivalency. A virulent victimhood ideology spawned by the OIC and sadly championed and promoted today by both Governments and Academia the world over. Palestinianism is the contra Midas touch. It undermines or destroys everything it comes into contact with.
