stop talking about Palestine without talking to Palestinians— Saladin Ahmed (@saladinahmed) May 8, 2021
the idea that political realities in Palestine are too old or complex to comprehend is just propaganda obfuscating obviously racist violence— Saladin Ahmed (@saladinahmed) May 8, 2021
it is exactly what it looks like
a lot of you are basically like 'RESIST! RESIST! unless you're Palestinian because like the middle east is really complicated and there's blame on both sides'— Saladin Ahmed (@saladinahmed) May 10, 2021
I see he's repeating the Israel-delegitmizing Palestine propaganda, which was refuted by Golda Meir in her time. And Ahmed's not the only person working in comics who's taken this anti-Israel stance. There's also G. Willow Wilson:
if you're human enough to know the cops are lying in other situations it's gross and racist to believe them in Palestine just because you're scared of guys wearing kaffiyehs— Saladin Ahmed (@saladinahmed) May 10, 2021
If you've seen any of the footage coming out of Sheikh Jarrah in recent days, you can't help but be horrified. Imagine if it was your house, your kids, your family. Yet the world shrugs. https://t.co/Qj8NPUUQE3— G. Willow Wilson (@GWillowWilson) May 7, 2021
So she's inciting against the Jewish National Fund by extension. Both she and Ahmed ignore the following history:
“Two of the primary settler organizations driving these evictions are registered and have tax-deductible charity status in the United States, from where they receive the majority of their funding.” https://t.co/rZlLnn5Lkn— G. Willow Wilson (@GWillowWilson) May 8, 2021
The Shimon Hatzadik neighborhood, a.k.a. Sheikh Jarrah, is located in north Jerusalem, near the Shimon Hatzadik Cave and the Nahalat Shimon neighborhood. The neighborhood was established by Jewish settlers in 1890, and its Jewish residents were forced out by the British mandatory government during the War of Independence. In the early 2000s, after a long legal battle, Jewish residents started to come back to Shimon Hatzadik.More on this subject at Israel Today. None of this means anything to two phony scribes who don't belong in comicdom, or the literary world, for that matter. In fact, considering all the damage the Hamas has been doing by extension even long before the latest series of terrorist attacks this week, which has now resulted in at least 2 deaths in Israeli neighborhoods, that's exactly why I'm sure a lot of people would like to know: how much longer do any comic publishers intend to continue employing Ahmed and Wilson, or anybody who spouts anti-Israel propaganda like they are? Marvel parted ways with Ardian Syaf 4 years ago, following his anti-semitic tirades being discovered, yet they're still okay working with Ahmed and Wilson? I think all publishers who could be working with them would do well to consider, because this is bound to cause serious harm, in public relations and other ways, sooner or later.
In the 1950s and ’60s, King Hussein of Jordan plied the Arabs of Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem under his rule with real estate to maintain their loyalty to the crown. Among those properties were those vacated Jewish homes in Sheikh Jarrah.
In 1967, Israel liberated the eastern part of Jerusalem. Israeli law is very clear regarding allowing Jews to ask for and receive homes they had been kicked out of in what was briefly known as the “west bank.”
Right-wing Jewish organizations have been engaged for several decades in the effort to retrieve Jewish property that had been captured by Jordan in 1948. These groups either represent the Jewish owners or purchase from their heirs the rights to those properties. Several Jewish families have been able to take back their properties in Sheikh Jarrah, as well as two Jewish trusts that have owned real estate there since the beginning of the neighborhood.
And they're not the only ones. There's also Nadia Shammus, a "palestinian-American" writer who was hired to do yet another run of Muslim Ms. Marvel stories, and she supports, for example, the BDS movement:
And also parrots anti-Zionist propaganda:
If you are considering what you can do besides speaking up online, which is a huge help, please research the BDS boycott movement and implement it into your life. https://t.co/WKi05TS0P4— Nadia Shammas 🇵🇸 (@Nadia_Shammas_) May 8, 2021
No doubt, she's one of those kind of people who doesn't know Zionism is a word synonymous with patriotism, and I guess Shammus despises the UAE and Bahrain for their peace deal with Israel last year, along with the UAE's willingness to sell Israeli products on their markets. Does Marvel still intend to approve employment for Shammus after what she's said about Stan Lee's Israeli brethren?
LRT: if you are going to a march for Palestine, please remember to blur out any faces from any photos you take, and know that there are always Zionist counter-protesters who will do whatever they can to get a rise out of you, they will have cops on standby, so be careful— Nadia Shammas 🇵🇸 (@Nadia_Shammas_) May 11, 2021
It's a terrible shame these scribes were contracted in the first place by any publishers working with them. It's an insult to the Jews who oversaw creation of the comics they're working on now, and Marvel/DC for starters would do well to address if they understand the embarrassment they're causing, at the expense of the past Jewish contributors to comicdom. This is simply not acceptable.
