Yeah I don’t understand why we aren’t protesting outside Saudi embassies.

And for those Muslims who keep telling me it’s a bad idea because they wanna go to hajj next year, what is your life right now? How does hajj have any meaning to you when Palestinians are literally being scraped off the concrete.

Saudi has the blood of many, and has been responsible for more than just Palestine.

Damn I’m getting fb comments about how hajj is fard, how boycotting saudi regime and hajj as part of it is damaging my faith, how it’s an insult to Allah because it is acting as if Allah didn’t know what was going to happen with Gaza and Saudi’s involvement…..

If I follow these people I might as well never move or write or demonstrate or boycott because Allah knew all this was going to happen.
A demonstration in Belgium at Saudi embassy would not get enough people participating at this moment so a few of my friends will keep mentioning the role of the Saudi kingdom at any speech they give in the next demonstrations + mention that role in articles. Maybe then after a few years more will wake up and at least show up at a demonstration at the embassy in Belgium.

But I’ve never been more dissappointed in our Muslim community as I am now.

I wonder how it feels to write under an occupation. To write under the constant threat of its inhumanity, and the anger and sadness that makes ones ink cross the boundaries of their thresholds. How revolting yet transforming it must be, and how painful or maybe rewarding for some it is.

An Amazigh friend told me that I liked a facebook page about Tamazight that was promoting solidarity with israel. She advised me to unlike it and tell others who were still following that page, without commenting on that page because it just gives it attention needed to cause confusion and spread lies. There is obviously an online attempt to get us to like israel because it totally doesn’t correspond with offline reality. Anyways I’m checking everything I liked on fb in the past.

De flyers die we gisteren uitdeelden bij de betoging in Antwerpen en een paar voorbeelden van dadels waarvan het geld naar de bezetting van Palestina gaat. Op onze flyer in Antwerpen waren we het merk ‘Shams’ vergeten, onze excuses daarvoor. We zullen die toevoegen voor de flyers die we in Genk gaan verdelen (op dinsdag 15 juli: zie event op Facebook hier).

Deze foto’s hierboven namen we in Marokkaanse/Turkse winkels in Genk. We noemen voorlopig geen naam van een winkel. Van het merk ‘Shams’ heeft een verkoper in Brussel in de Brabantstraat toegegeven dat ze geld voor israël zijn. Er staat nergens een land op vermeld en de barcode verwijst niet naar israël. En ja, de info bij het merk Mehadrin is zeer duidelijk..

We deelden deze beelden vandaag ook op onze Facebookpagina.

This is about our boycott campaign. There have been groups in Belgium that call for a boycott of israel for more than 20 years but we’re still at the stage where Belgian Muslims, as the group in Belgium where you’ll find most support for Palestinians and anti-israel feelings, still sell and buy dates from the occupation for their iftar during this ramadan. So we obviously stand nowhere with BDS here. In the end of the first week of ramadan a few Belgian Moroccans started an online awareness campaign to boycott occupation-dates. They call the campaign ‘No Iftar For israel’. Hopefully we’ll go from dates to the Coca Cola company, to academic boycotts and so on.

The first picture is of the flyers for the boycott. A few volunteers will hand them out at a demonstration tomorrow in Brussels. Organisers expect 3000 people to show up. Brussels is one of the 4 Belgian cities to hold pro-Palestine demonstrations. Other cities were Ghent, Genk, Antwerp, there will be one in Kortrijk and I hear other cities are planning demonstrations too.

So typical Belgian journalism: Robin Ramaekers of the Belgian VTM news first says what he saw from Gaza was too horrible to show viewers, to then goes on and spreads lies about how Hamas doesn’t want a ceasefire because its existence is merely to wipe israel off the map. These ‘journalists’ like him never mention Hamas wasn’t consulted about the terms for a new ceasefire. As expplained here: Hamas did not reject a ceasefire, israel did. They never mention the occupation, the arrests and murders by israel in the last months and years. Yet they get to play the ‘objective’, ‘neutral’ journalist and I could lose my job if I say Hamas has every right to fire rockets at israel.

There’s a bunch of liberal Zionists on here who claim to be pro-Palestine yet only speak about Palestine when they reblog pictures of pro-Palestinian protests and say how such and such signs in the background  are problematic or to rant about how bad the anti-zionist movement is or to say that what’s happening is not a genocide.

"Yeah that’s 10000% wrong but still not a genocide!!1!! I’m pro-Palestine though!1!!1 now let me rant once again abt how problematic anti-zionism is"

Mariam Elmaslouhi schrijft als een van onze ramadanbloggers:

Ik ken Marokkanen in Nederland als leden van een gemeenschap die betrokken is. En misschien is dat wel ons probleem: die enorme betrokkenheid. We doen mee, willen erbij horen en het liefst ook geprezen worden door autochtonen. Maar ik vind het juist belangrijker is dat wij als Marokkaanse gemeenschap in Nederland elkaar steunen.
Waarom keren we niet-vastende Marokkanen de rug toe, terwijl we wel autochtonen en zelfs racisten uitnodigen voor iftars en ze hartelijk koekjes meegeven? Ik vind het ook erg dat wij ook de PVV napraten en over onze jongens spreken als ‘tuig’. Ik hoorde eens een Marokkaanse praten over onze jongeren alsof het honden zijn. “Je weet toch hna lmgharba (wij Marokkanen)” wordt er dan gezegd, “wij zoeken altijd problemen”.

Dutch-Moroccan Mariam Elmaslouhi writes as one of our ramadanbloggers about how Moroccans treat Moroccans who don’t fast. She asks why Moroccans in the Netherlands put so much energy in seeking support and approval of the White Autochtoon Dutch community while they turn their backs on people of their own community.
She asks why Moroccans who don’t fast are not accepted while Moroccan Muslims invite White Autochtoon Dutch people and even racists for iftars. Elmaslouhi hopes for a stronger Moroccan community to fight racism toghether and to defend the freedoms of all Moroccans.
(Autochtonen is what the white Dutch and Belgians call themselves, while immigrants, and especially Muslims, are labeled Allochtonen which means being ‘alien to this land’.)

The cartoon is funny, but in Belgium it’s often the Moroccan Muslim who shouts at the Moroccan atheist: “What do you mean you don’t fast?!” :s

For all the supporters of Erdogan and of the Moroccan king Mohamed 6: Erdogan keeps close military (!) and economic relations with israel and Mohamed 6 allows the US military to train in Morocco, so how can we say they support Palestine? I absolutely don’t get why we cheer when they utter a word of support for Palestinians while their deeds show support for their enemy.
