100,000 Lebanese 'Palestinians' to march towards Israel's northern border

On May 14, the date the 'Palestinians' mark as the anniversary of their nakba (tragedy - the date of Israel's independence on the Gregorian calendar), some 100,000 Lebanese who claim 'Palestinian' origin say that they will march towards Lebanon's border with Israel to protest their failure to destroy the Jewish state after 60 years of trying.
The PA ambassador to Beirut, Zaki Abbas, has been working in the past few weeks to recruit refugees from various refugee camps throughout Lebanon for the march.

Fatah's top representative in Lebanon, Sultan Abu Aynain, has also been instrumental in organizing the event, the Post has learned.

The two have been coordinating their efforts with PA Deputy Minister for Prisoners Affairs, Ziad Abu Ein, who has drawn up a plan calling on Palestinian refugees to "invade" Israel by land, air and sea in protest against Israel's anniversary celebrations.

The plan states that the Palestinians have decided to implement United Nations Resolution 194 regarding the Palestinian refugees.

Article 11 of the resolution, which was passed in December 1948, says that "refugees wishing to return to their homes and live in peace with their neighbors should be permitted to do so at the earliest predictable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return."

Entitled "The Initiative of Return and Coexistence," the plan urges all Israelis to "welcome the Palestinians who will be returning to live together with them in the land of peace."

A committee established by the organizers to prepare for the event met at the Al-Bireh Municipality offices this week to discuss ways of rallying support. Abu Ein told participants that more than 100,000 refugees from Lebanon were expected to take part in the march toward Israel's northern border.

He added that refugees from the West Bank and Gaza Strip would also participate in the events by staging marches toward Israeli checkpoints and border crossings.


The plan calls on the refugees to return to Israel with suitcases and tents so that they can settle down in their former villages. The refuges are requested to carry UN flags upon their return and to be equipped with their UNRWA-issued ID cards.

The plan asks Arab countries hosting the refugees to facilitate their return by opening their borders. The plan specifically refers to Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq.

Palestinian refugees living in the US, EU, Canada and Latin America have been requested to use their foreign passports to fly to Ben- Gurion Airport, while dozens of ships carrying refugees will converge on Israeli ports.
I wonder how much of the $400 million 'budget shortfall' the US has said it will 'look upon favorably' to close is going to pay for this rubbish.

By the way, they're also boycotting foreign leaders who are coming here for Independence Day during their trips here. Abu Mazen will meet President Bush afterwards in Sharm-El-Sheikh.

The picture at the top of this post shows Fatah's 43rd anniversary poster which - you guessed it - shows the entire State of Israel as 'Palestine.'

Hey George and Condi - still think this is a border dispute?

Its not a border dispute. One should take note that even the "moderate" PA President, Mahmoud Abbas, does NOT recognize the legitimacy of Israel's statehood. In that respect, he is no different from the Hamas terrorist leaders.

That raises the question of why Israel is negotiating with someone who denies the Jewish State's self-evident existence and organizes a boycott of world leaders visiting her. Even Hamas hasn't gotten around to that part yet.

No - its not a dispute over settlements, er - the revanants either, whatever Bush and Condi want to think.
