Paul Larudee - one of the founders of the Free Gaza and Free Palestine Movements and an organizer in the International Solidarity Movement - has made some incredibly misleading statements in his latest article "The Palestine Liberation Movement is not about Anti- Semitism" - published in Dissident Voice on 23 May.
Having studied linguistics and earned a PhD - Larudee should be the first person to understand thatthe written language is one of the prime means of communication between humans and requires precision in its use to avoid ambiguity and misunderstanding.
Larudee has in his choice of words created a false and misleading impression of the Palestinian cause that bears no relationship to the conflict between Jews and Arabs that has remained unresolved for the last 130 years in relation to the former territory called Palestine.
The Palestinian cause has nothing to do with Jews...
Hamas exposes the falsity of Larudee's claim as the Hamas Covenant makes clear in article 15:
The day that enemies usurp part of Moslem land, Jihad becomes the individual duty of every Moslem. In face of the Jews' usurpation of Palestine, it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised.
The PLO also discredits Larudee's statement as article 20 of its Charter explicitly states:
Claims of historical or religious ties of Jews with Palestine are incompatible with the facts of history and the true conception of what constitutes statehood. Judaism, being a religion, is not an independent nationality. Nor do Jews constitute a single nation with an identity of its own; they are citizens of the states to which they belong.
Jew-hatred permeates the "Palestinian cause" - and Larudee's attempt to whitewash this pernicious conduct is specious and false.
Who is Larudee trying to fool and for what purpose?
