UN, EU, US want investigation into death of Palestinian journalist—PA refuses

Reporter will be buried swiftly without autopsy

Never an investigation yielded results so fast. This is the fastest result any investigation could give. While pro-Muslim-Palestinian sources screamed murder, the PA forbid an independent autopsy. I know enough.

BTW: To say that the PA concluded from an investigation that Israel shot her is such Western thinking. The neutral facts don’t matter in a war that is deemed unfair. Even if shot by the PA, still Israel’s guilty of her death.

Israel’s PM said the preliminary results suggest she was not shot by IDF soldiers. Why would he lie? He suggested a joint investigation to get to the truth. Since when is the PA interested in objective truth? So, it said no.

It’s like a suspect claiming the right to be silent. It doesn’t add to eagerness of giving them the benefit of the doubt-what doubt? We’re lucky the PA is so clearly withholding damning information because—again—the IDF is stuck in red tape and perfectionism. It will come with its conclusions when no one is interested anymore. When will they learn to prioritize speed?

The only question that stays open is: Was she deliberately targeted by her ‘Palestinian brethren’ to blame the Jews, or was she the unintended victim of indiscriminate shelling by terrorists who never care about human life?

In any case, the ‘Palestinian leadership’ and their hapless population gained another photo opp, so needed with the war in Ukraine raging.

***

While much of Antisemitism through the ages is rooted in jealousy, Muslim-Palestinian terrorists understood, before anyone else, how the war in Ukraine would rob them from all their ‘deserved’ publicity.

They immediately spoke of their solidarity with the beleaguered … Russian People, victimized by Western/Ukraine Imperialism like they are by Jews.

That didn’t work very well. Be hey, there is no such thing as a bad press.

The text continues below the Dutch illustration

Above an attempt by a Dutch-Israeli ‘peace group,’ early in the Ukraine war, calling out the injustice and inequality that the Dutch PM had condemned the Gaza junta for rocketing Israeli citizens, but now Russia rockets the Ukraine citizens, he suddenly is on the side of the Ukrainians.

How warped must your perception be to call that “double standards”!

Having no new tools, the PA leadership has returned to organizing ‘spontaneous’ terrorist attacks in a desperate attempt to keep them in the news and doing its fair share in aiding the worldwide swelling of antisemitism. And, it’s working. It’s getting lots of attention and sympathy while murdering Jews. What else could they wish for?

Poor Muslim citizens living in poverty and without human rights in Gaza and the West Bank under a radical-Muslim dictatorship, and the world does not help them because it’s too busy telling Jews they are not OK.

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, previously a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He often makes his readers laugh, mad, or assume he's nuts—close to perfect blogging. As a frontier thinker, he sees things many don't yet. He's half a prophet. Half. Let's not exaggerate. He doesn't believe that people observe and think in a vacuum. He, therefore, wanted a broad bio that readers interested can track a bit what (lack of) backgrounds, experiences, and educations contribute to his visions. * This year, he will prioritize getting his unpublished books published rather than just blog posts. Next year, he hopes to focus on activism against human extinction. To find less-recent posts on a subject XXX among his over 1500 archived ones, go to the right-top corner of a Times of Israel page, click on the search icon and search "zuiden, XXX". One can find a second, wilder blog, to which one may subscribe, here: https://mmvanzuiden.wordpress.com/ or by clicking on the globe icon next to his picture on top. * Like most of his readers, he believes in being friendly, respectful, and loyal. However, if you think those are his absolute top priorities, you might end up disappointed. His first loyalty is to the truth. He will try to stay within the limits of democratic and Jewish law, but he won't lie to support opinions or people when don't deserve that. (Yet, we all make honest mistakes, which is just fine and does not justify losing support.) He admits that he sometimes exaggerates to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quite a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * Sometimes he's misunderstood because his wide and diverse field of vision seldomly fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what some love about him. He has written a lot about Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (including basic statistics), Politics (Israel, the US, and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight reality), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, LGBTQIA+, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), the Climate Crisis, Ecology and Veganism, Affairs from the news, or the Torah Portion of the Week, or new insights that suddenly befell him. * Chronologically, his most influential teachers are his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach, and, lehavdil bein chayim lechayim, Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff, and Rav Meir Lubin. This short list doesn't mean to disrespect others who taught him a lot or a little. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, and disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed. He aims to bring a fresh perspective rather than harp on the obvious and familiar. When he can, he loves to write encyclopedic overviews. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds should be disputed. In short, his main political positions are among others: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, anti those who abuse democratic liberties, anti the fake ME peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, pro-Science, pro-Free Will, anti-blaming-the-victim, and for down-to-earth, classical optimism, and happiness. Read his blog on how he attempts to bridge any tensions between those ideas or fields. * He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (https://diethylstilbestrol.co.uk/studies/des-and-psychological-health/), born in 1953 to his parents who were Dutch-Jewish Holocaust survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork. He grew up a humble listener. It took him decades to become a speaker too, and decades more to admit to being a genius. But his humility was his to keep. And so was his honesty. Bullies and con artists almost instantaneously envy and hate him. He hopes to bring new things and not just preach to the choir. * He holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam) – is half a doctor. He practices Re-evaluation Co-counseling since 1977, is not an official teacher anymore, and became a friendly, powerful therapist. He became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years, he was active in hasbara to the Dutch-speaking public. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a strict vegan since 2008. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second-generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having an original peek outside of your cultural bubble. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
