‘Hey Activist!’ Trend Sweeping Middle East

Who says God doesn’t supervise the Internet? You bet your pickle He does! So that, while hateful “activists” are roaming the Web, disseminating lies, a few good men and women are generating effective responses.

Philippe Assouline, of the Jerusalem Center for Public affairs, created the meme below, comparing Israel’s security wall, which is being introduced as an instrument of apartheid—when all it’s meant to do is stop suicide bombers, because it’s tough to scale a fence with 50 kilograms of explosives and an over-sized coat.

Now look at Turkey, which surrounds itself with its own security wall, and, incidentally, is a lot harsher on its Kurdish enemies, who go to jail for cultural violations, like speaking Kurdish. So where are the condemnations of the apartheid state of Turkey? Let me see… No, nothing there.

Now an Al Jazeera TV host, Dr. Faisal Al-Qassem, posted his own “Hey activist!” meme, comparing the relatively peaceful Gaza to the bloodied Syria, wondering how come nobody is BDSing the Syrians.

This is so cool, we should start manufacturing our own “Hey Activist!” memes and sell them on T-shirts.

Here’s another Philippe Assouline meme:

  1. Last year me and my wife ate at a very pleasant Arab restaurant in Jericho with a sheltered outdoor area. The very nice Palestinian Manager chatted with us and asked if we wanted to go inside and enjoy our food because it was air-conditioned, we of course declined saying that we were from the UK and we had come to thaw out and we would eat outside with the locals. When asked what he thought of Jericho he said "in comparison to Gaza, Jericho was a dump". He described Gaza as beautiful and told us not to believe what the media said or described Gaza as. All of the Arabs I met gave off the same friendliness across Israel. Some say like attracts like. We wish for the good of all, so maybe we attracted the same to ourselves. Maybe a lesson in this.
