Meir Dagan versus Hamdi Quran
On State Terror and Cowardice
New in the Website
In no way I do support violence. I even condemn the Mossad’s (and Israel’s) violence against me, though I may be biased on this one. Yet, taking a close look at violent events allows discerning about basic characteristics of people.
2010: On the Assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh
Recently, we all learned about a criminal act of Israel, the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh on January 19, 2010, in the Al Bustan Rotana Hotel of Dubai. The assassins used stolen passports, arrived on separate flights, used encrypted communication systems, passed their communications to the Mossad headquarters via Austria, and performed a series of dubious actions within the hotel in order to avoid detection. They distracted a tourist in Mahmoud al-Mabhouh’s room floor, attempted to re-program the room’s key, entered the room and then – well hidden – they waited for their victim. It was a four-on-one attack; even under such an advantage he was assassinated using coward techniques. The attackers rush out of Dubai immediately after their attack.
2001: On the Assassination of Rehavam Ze'evi
Rehavam Ze'evi was with little doubt the most racist Israeli politician; the closest competition was the American Racist Rabbi Meir Kahane, which was also assassinated in 1990. Even in this racist stronghold known as Israel, Ze’evi was seen as an extremist because his support of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza. On them, in 2001, he said to the Israeli radio: "We should get rid of the ones who are not Israeli citizens the same way you get rid of lice." He was allowed to run with the ethnic cleansing plan to the Knesset because he didn’t go into details on how the cleansing was to be achieved. A major general in the IDF, during his period as commander of the Central Command in Jerusalem, Ze’evi kept a young lion in his headquarters. Next to him, Genghis Khan looks like a soft spoken sage.
Ze’evi (the name properly means “of the wolf” in Hebrew) was assassinated on October 17, 2001 by Hamdi Quran of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). Ze'evi was shot in the Jerusalem Hyatt Hotel on Mount Scopus. He was known for refusing escort from the Shin Beth. That morning the assassin intercepted him on one of the hotel corridors. “Gandhi!” he called. “Gandhi” was Ze’evi’s nickname; members of the Warring Family always have ridiculous ones (not due its reference to the noble Indian leader, but because Gandhi was the antithesis of brutal Ze’evi). Hearing his name, Ze’evi turned around and was shot in his face; shortly after he died in the nearby Hadassah Medical Center.
Cowardice versus Courage
Cowardice is the characteristic of avoiding or refusing to engage in a confrontation or struggle which is seen as righteous by the wider culture. The Palestinian culture probably sees the assassination of murderous Rehavam Ze’evi as a righteous act. The Israeli culture sees the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh as a righteous act.
Yet, what a difference! Rehavam Ze’evi was courageously executed in the open, in a face to face, one-to-one, meeting. Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was assassinated cowardly. Meir Dagan – his de facto executor – sent others. The others hide behind a myriad of lies and attacked in a hidden place, several-on-one. Dagan, in a typically Jewish attitude, committed a coward attack.
Tomorrow – July 23, 2010, it would be a year of another coward attack of the Mossad, again from the back and of many-on-one. This time it was on me. My throat was destroyed and my documents were robbed. Since then I’m technically a prisoner, the UN Refugee documents I have are worthless.
Meir Dagan: you and your Jews are just cowards. You cannot defend yourselves against my words, thus you physically attack me, hiding behind filthy bushes. Let me remind you a few wise words by God:
Matthew 10:27-28 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
