Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas “surprises” the nation with a speech- among his fellow Fateh people of course- condemning the Medical Doctor Union for their attempted strike.
Of course, it is never a good timing in the Palestinian lives. why would this be different? the first excuse the president use in his condemnation. deal of the century, economical siege and corona.
The language the president used both in attitude and in literal wording only says one thing: this man despises the people he rules. There is no way on earth one can take his words in a different way or meaning.
Words such as “mean”, “despiteful”, “non ethical” among other terms were the accusations that the president used to describe the act of attempted strike.
A president screaming that these people are asking for raises in their salaries when HE cannot afford to pay the 60% of salaries to his employees.
The president reminded me when my children ask me for money, and I start moaning and weeping my dark, hard, bad luck.
I have to admit that the president speech or whatever one may call left me with awe. disturbing feelings of a person – me- who lives under a state of occupation from one side and a state of a stateless president who despise us.
it was quite sarcastic when the president called the behavior of the doctors as people who are disconnected from reality on the ground thinking that they live in Switzerland or Sweden. I have to say this was something to me… I always though that this president needs to rule in such places not our conflicted occupied area.
it turned out that what really pissed the president off was the fact that he HIMSELF spoke to the head of the union, and it is the FIRST TIME EVER for him to sit with a head of union , and they promised him they will not allow the strike.
Can anyone believe that this president never sat with Unions?
of course, he does not have much time, while convincing Israelis with every single and possible opportunity that he is a man of peace.
MR president, the Israelis and the world with who ever stands on any side, respect and believe leaders that value their people.
On another level, close to the president’s HQ, the news of 5 municipal council members resignation took people with a stir. The reason behind this was the leading of the municipality in a regional euro Mediterranean organization that has on board the municipality of an Israeli colony in the neighborhood, Modiin.
Again, the resignation was accepted with a blame to those who resigned for acting this way in this particular difficult timing!!! And for refusing to work together with the municipality on mobilizing in the future for getting the Israeli municipality out.
The BDS movement was the judge, and as disappointing as the president in results to the expectation of poor individuals like myself came their statement, “legitimizing” what happened, as if the BDS is another Sheikh carrying the secrets to the gates of the pure people in what is charged as normalization and what is not.
Too much for one day …
