The foreign activists are not an asset in any way to any cause , with the exception of the rare ones who have become one with the cause like Rachel Corrie . Those have helped themselves , they have developed the right insight and the right awareness into the matter and had to pay the price , a heavy price . Those are absolved because they have identified fully with the cause. They are not on an assignment of some sort . They are the cause in its full human dimension. Those are rare . But the others, those whom we see everywhere are many . Even if they spread the word about a certain cause what power do they have ? Do they have the power or the intention to change anything or to have people`develop awareness? First they would have to be aware themselves in order to raise some kind of awareness, and we find out that it is not so , that they did not develop the right awareness; this not to speak of the fact that they could be infiltrators in most of the cases who work for a third party by whom they were hired
What to say about George Galloway who has taken a pro Palestinian stand so to speak , even went to Gaza taking aid in a big convoy . But at one point, one realizes that he is against HAMAS which means that he is against the Palestinian Armed Resistance . In what way is he pro Palestinian and against the Armed Resistance ? Why does he need to take this anti Armed Resistance stand ? He did not have to take a stand regarding the Armed Resistance . The answer is that he has an agenda of his own that is not the agenda for Palestine . He is for peaceful Resistance `and for BDS and you name it, and he is dictating to the Palestinians whom to choose for leader, and he campaigns for al Barghouthi on every occasion.
Not even us Lebanese who are hosting many refugees would tell the Palestinians whom to choose, but we know the Palestinian condition. Not even the Lebanese Resistance who is one with the Palestinian Resistance , not even Iran who is so much supportive of Palestine and hosts Palestinian conferences and gives money and weapons and various aid would tell the Palestinians whom to choose for leader or speak in their name . But George Galloway does. He tells the Palestinians who is a suitable leader for them .
What puts Galloway in this position? and who gave him this authority ? It is not the Palestinians for sure but it is those who have hired Galloway . The truth is that the cause does not need those . Does the cause need Galloway who defames Islam on every occasion saying that Terror has its origins in Islam? The cause needs its people and its supporters among freedom fighters ad truth seekers . We are better off without the Galloways and the Falks and without the Chomskies and the Finkelsteins and the academicians that assume a pro Palestinian stand but their hearts are on israel, and they fear for israel,and they seem to side with Palestine but it is israel that they care for .
Those pro Palestinians activists have their par on the Syrian side too , and they have the same mission of promoting anti Resistance forces , and they stand for Russia and for secularism as if Syria was under Muslim attack and not under NATO’s Proxy Armies attack . Those also are on an assignment like Vanessa Beeley and Eva Bartlett and you name it , and they wage for secularism as opposed to Islam.
Those activists are far better staying home and working on keeping their governments off our backs . This is the best thing they can do. One can notice that there are no activists standing for Yemen the country that is being assaulted from every side and in every respect, with famine and cholera spreading, and people starving and dying by thousands and under Saudi-US fire . There are no foreign activists for Yemen , that is resisting bravely a vicious world order assault, because Yemen is a clean war and a clean struggle, and there is no room for infiltrators in the midst of the battle .
The Yemeni war is not object of focus , it is outside the common interest , so there is no need for activists there , for activists follow the audience and cater to the market’s needs, and all activists found their way to Syria and visited Assad and took pictures and gave interviews and posted videos . This must be rewarding for the activists more than any other place . Syria has become the heaven of hired activists, more so than Palestine even , and all praise the rule while very little is said about the suffering of the people.
