Palestinian Authority: Israel’s Doppelgänger

abbas

by Vacy Vlazna

In popular idiom, doppelgänger hails from the German, meaning “look-alike” in behaviour or physical appearance.

The frontline of Palestinian non-violent resistance in the West Bank of the State of Palestine, is not in Ramallah, the seat of the Palestinian Authority (PA), the PLO and the Palestinian National Council (PNC), but in the many villages, like Bill’in, Nil’ilin, Nabi Saleh, Kufr Kaddum, Al Maasara, Hizma, Al Walaja, Bab Al Shams, Burin, Budrus, that the PA supposedly is meant to represent and protect.

An Invitation to First Lady, Michelle Obama

Can you think of anything more arrogant than being a guest in someone's home and criticizing them because you don't like their drapes? Maybe yes, criticizing their drapes when you have none decorating the windows in your own home. Most people would agree that that behavior would cross the line. How could anyone be so lacking in common courtesy and finesse - especially when that person is a brilliant, well-educated First Lady.
