So much for a Western style democracy in Palestine

As reported in the New York Times today, Nov. 16, 2010 a blogger, Waleed Hasayin, on the West Bank has been detained (not formally arrested) for promoting atheism, composing spoofs of Koraic verses, skewering the lifestyle of the Prophet Muhammud and chatting online suing the sarcastic Web name God Almighty.  So much for the freedom of expression for Palestinian Arabs.  "Majed Arouri, a major human rights expert in Ramallah he believed that the way Mr. Hasayin had been detained and his correspondence recorded 'contradicts human rights principles and existing Palestinian laws' regarding individual privacy." (from the article) While some show solidarity with Hasayin others are calling for his execution.  Of course, as a "blasphemer" he must be an agent of the Mossad working for Israel.  Can you imagine anything of this magnitude happening in Israel where every Jewish opinion is expressed without fear of prosecution?!

I am looking forward to the United Nations condemning the P.A. for violating this man's freedom of speech.  But I am not holding my breath.  The U.N. and its ngos would rather concentrate on Israel's "apartheid" rule even though all Israeli citizens, Jew and Arab, are equal before the law, Israel has no Population Registration Act, no Group Areas Act, no Mixed Marriages and Immorality Act, no Separate Representation of Voters Act, no Separate Amenities act, no pass laws or any of the myriad apartheid laws.  The U.N. and its minions would rather rewrite history by declaring Rachel's Tomb to be a Muslim mosque and part of the Palestinain heritage instead of what it truly is "proof of Jewish roots to the Land of Israel from the very beginning of our people some 4000 years ago.

Israel remains the only true Democracy with a vibrant free press and freedom of expression in the whole Middle East.  As the old Simon and Garfunkle song goes, the Israel delegitimizes hears what it wants to hear and disregards the rest.

On another topic-organ theft.  If Israel is a nexus for organ theft and/or Israelis are involved in this illegal activity taking advantage of the poor to harvest their organs, this operation must be terminated immediately.  All involved should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.  This behavior is violates our vision of ourselves as a 'light unto the nations."  Those involved are desecrating God's name.  A real Hillul Hashem.
