Europe’s Real “Resistance”

Europe’s policies of encouraging groups such as Hamas, which constantly espouse violence, demolishes the Palestinian effort to achieve a responsible Palestinian state that finally could end the conflict with Israel.

The West has been duped. The French have naïvely taken the bait: they now associate Palestinian “Resistance” with the courageous French underground Résistance that fought the Germans in World War II. They incorrectly assume that the Palestinian “Resistance’ must be a good thing, too.

But the Palestinian Resistance bears no resemblance to the French Résistance of Word War II. There is no way to compare them. The Palestinian “Resistance” is nothing more than terrorist organizations repressing their own people. They do not resist an evil force; they are an evil force.

The truth is that the Europeans do not really care about the Palestinians, only about destroying Israel.

    I suspect the numbers of the French Resistance greatly multiplied after the war and the hair grew back in.

    • After the war everybody was a member of the resistance.

        yes, and the population of Austria exploded

  • The whole Palestinian narrative – about resistance, about being oppressed, about being the original inhabitants of the land, etc. – was not invented by the Arabs, but by Western (leftist) media and activists. A BBC journalist or Israeli leftist would go to Arabs and tell them say this, say that. Slowly, the Arabs got the picture and became adept at saying the right things.

    • It’s one big sham.

      • Loaded questions like: when did you decide to resist the oppressor Israel who stole your land and massacred your family? That’s teaching a narrative.
        What amazes me is how so many people in Arab countries and in the rest of the world now think there have actually been massacres of Arabs by Jews, and ignore that Jews are the ones getting deliberately killed by Arabs.

      Don’t forget how the mythical Palestinian people were created by the KGB. You cannot get more Left than that, and of course as you say all the Western leftists jumped on the bandwagon and continue to propagate the lie.

    The “French Resistance” was a mishmash of various groups of which the communists and those secretly controlled by or assisted in some way by British Intelligence were often the most effective. The “real” French Resistance aligned with de Gaulle had little interest in giving the occupying Germans a continuous hard time, being much more interested in positioning itself to rule France after the Germans finally left.

    De Gaulle paid all of those people risking their lives outside his bailiwick quite a backhanded compliment when he declared them all security risks after the war and therefore ineligible for government jobs. The fact they had no way to know anything much about who they were working for beyond a few faces with false names and the occasional coded message directed their way over the BBC, cut no ice with “le Roi”.

    Outlook is grim

    Conditions for Islamic activity in Europe are perfect. The West has only good intentions: it desires to integrate its Muslims socially and economically. Yes, most Muslims are not terrorists, but that most terrorists are Muslims is slowly being internalized by a public suffering from naiveté and a serious lack of understanding of radical, violent Islam.

    The refusal of people in the West to believe that extremist Muslims are serious when they state that their plan is to take over the world and impose sharia on it, may possibly be the result of fear — either of physical, financial or political harm — or possibly of political correctness. At best it blurs, and at worst conceals, radical Islam’s intentions. Anyone who does reveal these intentions is condemned an “Islamophobe” a “racist” or accused of “hate speech.”
