Open Letter to Angela Merkel

Open Letter to Angela Merkel concerning Reem, the Palestinian refugee who was told to her face that she’s gonna be deported back to her filthy, starving, shitty-ass Lebanese refugee camp.

Dear Mrs Merkel,

I saw the broadcast with the Palestinian refugee girl, and her plight has touched me very much. She is not “from Lebanon”, she is from Israel, Palestine, whatever you call it, where my government and my army, my taxes, and the vote of my people, have seen her family uprooted and removed. Once ISIS takes root there, may God have mercy on them, and God has left the region, so…

Germany has room. Germany has room for cinemas and malls, but not for a dignified refugee home? And employment? There is employment, there is even the option of working for foreign employers through the Internet.

If you still “must” deport Reem and her family, I implore you to negotiate their return to Isreal. Theirs and that of other Palestinian refugees. Born here = entitled to live here. It should be that simple. We, this disgustingly embarassing country of “acceptance and equality”, are to blame for their plight. Our moneys, misinvested in military, settlements, and propaganda, are to blame. Our numbskulled Netanyahu-voting majority is to blame. The unending incitement against Arabs is to blame. Israel owes these people asylum, and it owes Reem a spot in college. If I still have any aliyah privileges, which I got by being a Jewish re-immigrant rather than an Arab native, and if they are transferable – Reem can have them.

But I want Israel to pay for their plight. I want that Israel, Germany’s pampered protegé, to answer for not giving some of its natives little to no chance to lead a fulfilling life because they’re not Jewish. Jews are paid to leave their good lives abroad and come to Israel, while Arab natives are pushed back and oppressed, and yes, removed.

STOP TOLERATING THIS!

If anything, the Holocaust guilt should sensitize you to all oppressed human beings, not just to Jews. The Holocaust was not essentially about Jews, essentially, it was about all those it hurt: those ridiculously and helplessly proclaimed an enemy of a nation so strong it insults itself for fearing those minorities. There are as many Arab terrorists, as there are Jewish rapists. If not, fewer. Stop tolerating Israel’s pathetic excuses, hold Israel accountable, and give us sanctions worthy of their name, for fuck’s sake.

And get this child a home. It is illegal in Germany to abandon one’s dog. But Germany gets to abandon thousands of people to certain death, or miserable lives. Think about it tonight, and the next, and the night after that.

Regards
Anna Giladi
