Good

Thanks for real Arabic news in English. Hard to get in America... mainstream news never has any real Intelligent Arabs on ever!

Relative importance...

You understand the violence that happens in the Middle East. So why do you complain about “incitement to violence, threats and bullying”??? You guys sound like whiny, Elite Democrats who grew up in NY. You jabber on about justice for all oppressed people- and just dribble out Democrat talking points. Whiny, priveledge coastal elites truly have never seen violence- so they have a excuse. BUT you guys are fighting for real justice from Israeli apartheid. Right?? So stop whining. And focus on THAT. Focus!

IDF shoots your children, and pretends it’s for a good cause.

Get smarter. Listen to Noam Chomsky. Stop whining about “White Supremacists with mean posters”.

Dr. Abdulhadi is a simpleton. She is not capable of complex thought, but she thinks she is smart. She is HURTING your cause. Drop her. Seriously.
