What is happening in preparation for the Century’s Deal?
Of course it could be all coincidental, after all, there is nothing left but coincidences within a reality of deterioration on all levels.
Are the Palestinian prospected leaders waiting for the moment after Abu Mazen’s death or the moment in preparation for the Trump’s Deal of the Century? The problem here is that the coinciding historical moments are not serving anyone but Israel and Trump. Whoever attempts to become the new president knows well that the price of oppressing people should not be the ticket to leadership. Combating in the rally of endorsing the Trump’s initiative, that is probably unknown to them as well, is a right bullet between the eyes. Whoever is trying to gain points for becoming the next number one in the messy rally of Palestinian authority is entering a dead zone.
What happened in the last few days since the decree of prohibiting demonstrations for the excuse of allowing the freedom of shoppin during the Eid high time, not only proved the violence of the PA’s security system in oppressing their own people, it showed that it is just about oppression and totalitarian attempted rule that is awaiting us, when the governor of Nablus, Rujoub took the square in Nablus, in the same day of the decree for prohibiting demonstrations and went out in an embarrassing speech supporting Mahmoud Abbas and speaking poorly and threatening anyone who will be against “them”.
Them is Fateh, and them is also that very narrow stream of leadership that is paving its way through enslaving the rest of whoever wants to be a Fateh or considers himself to be. Fateh is the sign of the new rule and opportunities. If you are not Fateh then you are the other . and this difference is the enemy . and this enemy is of course not Israel. Israel is the occupation that feeds their existence and makes them continue to suppress…as long as they are protecting the life of Israel.
The expectations or the worries were in awaiting the moment after Abu Mazen’s death. The stateless affair, and the eruption of violence among the Fateh factions (mainly)in the race of presidency. However, what took place reflects clearly that the violent situation that can erupt is already in the launching mode.
It felt hopeless to hear the screams of the governor. What did he want to prove? Was, is a direct threat in preparation for new leadership with Rujoub and Co?
Rujoub is securing with Jibreel the south with Hebron and the center with the Fatah leadership, and his cousin is situating himself in the north as the governor of Nablus?
Is Jibreel paving his way to being the replacement of Abu Mazen, with yet holding Abu Mazen’s loyal preaches in an attempt to secure some balance for the awaited moment… when the president dies, and someone has to take the opportunity real fast?
Whatever, whoever is thinking may be holding the leadership after Abbas is doing, will only lead him and this nation to a more deteriorating reality. It is not that we will enjoy more mess.. but one thing is real, we are tired of this situation. We are losing all that makes us this nation of struggling towards its liberation and turning into this eventually fading nation that will end itself.
It is sad to see such people taking over what should be Palestine… it is not that disappointing after all, to realize that these people only represent themselves… we Palestinians are others.
