Here & there

Umkhalil's new post, Dr. Salman Abu Sitta's achievements, and Palestine maps!

I'm amazed by Umkhalil's new post 'When Will You Ever Learn,' Rabbi Lerner? it's actually a Response to Rabbi Lerner's "When will they ever learn…that violence is not the path to security?"

You'll notice that Umkhalil has mentioned Dr. Salman Abu Sitta who has debated Rabbi before. Abu Sitta is a great Palestinian researcher, the general coordinator of the Right of Return Congress and founder of the Palestine Land Society, he has worked tirelessly for the Palestinian Right of Return for several decades, and has over 50 publications to his credit. " Al-Nakba was the largest planned ethnic cleansing in modern history" he says. Abu-Sitta is a refugee himself: he was nine years old when he was forced, along with the rest of his family, to flee their home in Beir al-Saba (Beersheba) in 1948. He has documented every detail surrounding the 1948 exodus and historic Palestine. His research has shown that there is ample space in present-day Israel to accommodate all Palestinian refugees. source

I've always loved Abu Sitta's unique achievements; they're such a perfect references, especially the smart Palestine maps in Arabic and English that show the towns and villages depopulated by the Zionist invasion of 1948. Also his presentations, and his Arabic articles/researches that unmasked some unbelievable crimes by Zionists.

Speaking of maps, "Palestine remembered" website has a great collection of Palestine maps, where you can find the extremely rare map of Palestine before alnakbeh, but unfortunately it was signed by the terrorist Moshe Dayan.

Hi Mohammad,

Very nice post and a very worthy message.

yes, nice post!
As to Umka's paper, when I read it, I was cheering. Lerner is intolerable. Her response to him is as brilliant as the Tikkun debate between Abu Sitta and Lerner which was the first thing I put on my blog when I started it. (or second... I think I opened with something by Gilad Atzmon about Arafat). I am glad she has no problem weeding out the crabgrass, wish everyone was as courageous as she was! Think how different things would be. Al Jazeerah info posted it, but changed it, they probably didn't want to alienate the Lerner camp, and therefore, miss the target....

Nice blog! I've seen it before.
