Palestinian official Jibril Rajoub recently thanked the International Olympic Committee for refusing to hold a minute of silence in memory of the 11 Israeli athletes murdered by PLO terrorists at the Munich Olympic games in 1972, saying that such a commemoration would have been “racism.”
This confused me, as the refusal to honor those victims is what seemed to be racist. So I embarked on a lexicographic study of Palestinian English. It turns out that Palestinian activists and their allies have indeed invented a parallel language, which I call Palestinese.
This lexicon is the fruit of my research.
Aboriginal/Native: Any non-Jew, preferably Arab, who has immigrated to Israel/Palestine within the last 150 years or is a remnant of Arab colonial conquests. For example, Yasser Arafat and Edward Said who were both born in Egypt are “Native” Palestinians.
Apartheid: The only system in the Middle East which is democratic and grants Arab citizens full equality under the law, including the right to become a Justice of the Supreme Court, an ambassador, a military officer or a Minister in the Cabinet., i.e. a form of “Racism.” Not to be confused with the widespread discrimination and exclusion of Palestinians on ethnic grounds in Lebanon, which is not “Apartheid.”
Apartheid Wall: A separation fence erected in response to countless terror attacks in order to protect both Jews and Muslims from suicide bombings as a manifestation of “Zionist Aggression.”
Checkpoint: An absolutely gratuitous, cruel and malicious security measure erected in the West Bank in response to years of deadly suicide bombings, to be equated with the worst forms of human torture. Not to be confused with security checkpoints at airports and international borders which, though identical in the inconveniences they cause, are perfectly acceptable.
Civilian: An armed Palestinian terrorist in the act of planning or staging a terror attack who is targeted or killed by Israel.
