Hasan A. Yahya, a writer from Palestine
American public is misguided in terms of race relations. This statement is supported by intellectuals who have grounds of scholarship methodology. While preferring Jews as minority group over any other minority groups in America, such as non-white African Americans, Native Americans, and tens of other minority groups, including Mexicans, Russians, Rumanians, Italians, Germans, Polish, women, homosexuals, and French etc., This is unfair, Americans need to be ethically and ethnically sound, in theory and practice when it comes for free nation principles. Arabs are not considered minority group, because they represent fractions of Arab countries, therefore, they are considered as Jordanians, Saudis, Tunisians, Palestinians, etc., this is not applied in the census Bauru for Arabs and Muslims as it is applied to Jews. Grounds of equality and justice should be applied for Palestinians as well as other minority groups in America. In schools, Arabs as well as Muslims should be covered justly after 9/11, which did not present Arabs or Muslims. Schools have to be informed of syllabus to unite Americans not to diffuse disintegration among students. For example, few days ago my friend’s daughter a Palestinian American in Ohio, was given a task to write about the Holocaust, where she is not a Jew, and knew very well what Jews in Israel are doing on a daily bases for Palestinians. I think the subject matter should be about both Jews and Palestinians cause, toward peace, not promoting hatred by only selecting the Holocaust as a subject without options. The Palestinian case is alive and well, while the Israeli case is very old as an occupation no matter under what name Israel functions. Students should know that Palestinians do not have to pay for Christian leaders mistakes, such as the Hitler one.
The Holocaust, is not only an old joke, it is becoming a continuous one among real Americans. It is a manipulation of emotions and minds to redirect attention of Jewish horrible practices in the occupied territories of Palestine, forget the history since before and after Jesus, in recent history toward the world nations in Europe and the United States through the recent political body called Israel, have manipulated world governments’ mentality to carry the burden of the chosen people and their suffering on the hands of the followers of Christianity- represented by Hitler. In what is called, holocaust. Hitler rightly or wrongly understood the nature of the Jews and how they were working outside the mainstream of Christians Europe, I am afraid, that Jews will face some of the Palestinian sufferings but as it is now the case Jews are outside the mainstream of American society. While this accusation may be doubtful, but spying, financial dishonesty and organ manipulations in addition to manipulation and rejection of peace initiative of the American President Barack Obama, are examples of taking the Jews out of American circle of humanity which depends on justice and moral standards. I do believe that some Jews in the United States may support peace, but political Zionism through Netanyahu and his Lekud party are bringing a new Holocaust to the Jews, sooner or later. History will tell, if they continue their isolation and control of American moral standards in the country.
This article may dissatisfy some, but in a scholarly fashion, let’s go back to the holocaust subject, we as scholars, cannot apply only Holocaust to students in the public schools, without balancing the relationships between minority groups in race relation, taking into consideration the future of the United States. Because the practice in our schools is negating principles of logic, justice and freedom, when it comes to Arabs and Muslims. ( 620 words) www.askdryahya.com
