My Palestinian training, non-violence or violence?

Before joining ISM group in Hebron I had my training in Ramallah during two days. How to obstruct IDF ops? How to freely walk in a neighbourhood and alert the coordinators the movements of incoming IDF patrols? When to go out and show your presence to the military, so that they dont dare shoot at your direction? Shield a house that IDF want to demolish? Shield stone-molotov-throwing militants? Yes. Our job. PLO (now Fatah, but it is the same) uses well meaning idealistic western youngsters to aid, shield and make-possible their terrorist agenda. The Fatah-coordinators made it clear to us that ISM uses only non-violent means of resistence, but in the meantime stressed that if the Palestinians chooses to use violence our job is to shield them. It is the Palestinians that live under occupation and humiliation, not us western activists, so we should let them make the operational decisions and we internationals are there to act like human shields and protect them from the IDF.

    Human shields aren’t actually very good shields bulletproof-wise. I say shoot them.

      That’s what they’re for.

        Shoot ONLY them though. Just them.

    Human shields or slaves are all that the kafirs are good for.

    We thank Allah for the marxists.

    Good write up. Glad to hear he wasn’t brainwashed and wasn’t killed. Should be required reading on campus.
