Identity politics

11 May 2011

Hat tip to Elder of Ziyon who once again was first with a scoop.

Get your very own “Palestinian” identity card!

The PA Ministry of Sports, Youth and Culture are offering free symbolic “Palestinian” identity cards to anyone who asks!

So I did! As a general rule Five Minutes for Israel doesn’t link to Israel hater sites but to poke fun at Palestinian pretensions is worth five minutes of your time.

Actually the PA Ministry’s pretension that anyone can be a Palestinian with an automatic right of return to anywhere in Israel is no more ridiculous than UNWRA’s pretension that Palestine refugees are people whose normal place of residence was Palestine between June 1946 and May 1948, who lost both their homes and means of livelihood as a result of the 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict. Even that definition requires no proof.

The map suggests a Palestinian state next to an Israeli state isn’t an actual goal but that’s alright. I already live on the borders of that map!

Palestinian return ID

Arab speakers. Have I filled this in correctly?

Palestine Right of Return - back

Translation anyone?

Action Item: Get your card and share it around.
Get your Palestinian identity here!
