Arab Idiocy Week proposed to counter Israeli Apartheid Week, Re: Let’s mobilize against anti-Israel week, Jerusalem Post, February 7, 2010

Organizing and implementing Arab Idiocy Week as a counterweight to Israeli Apartheid Week is an excellent way for supporters of Israel to mobilize and strike back wherever IAW events take place. Since Israeli Apartheid Week events usually occur on university campuses Arab Idiocy Week events would provide students with a much different viewpoint than they would otherwise be given. The scales would be balanced as it were. Palestinian and Arab students would be subjected to exactly the same kind of activities as Israeli and Jewish students but from a very different perspective. It would be very educational for them indeed and for the general public as well.

Activities during the week would include physically harassing pro-Palestinian students, especially Muslims and Arabs, displaying intimidating and inflammatory placards and posters, holding rallies which demonize and villify Palestinians and call for an end to them and their institutions, shouting down and shutting up anyone who begs to differ, lying and historical revisionism, spewing hate and intolerance towards Palestinians based on their religion and ethnicity and other such actions which seem to have become acceptable when directed towards Israelis and Jews. If they can be subjected to them during Israeli Apartheid Week it’s only fair that Palestinians and Arabs be subjected to them during Arab Idiocy Week….what’s good for the goose is good for the gander, isn’t it?

There could also be various workshops and presentations based on the weeks theme. For example.

Hezbollah and Hamas: sick sons of sick societies and why the Arab world encourages and supports them despite the damage they do to everyone.

Arab refusal to recognize Israel and it’s right to exist and how this eliminates any possibility of peace and prosperity for Palestinians.

Tolerating the use of women and children as human shields and what this says about Palestinian society.

Buying into Islamist propaganda and the terrible effect this has on people everywhere, including Palestinians.

Why Palestinians allow thugs and villains to dominate and debilitate their lives.

Arab refusal to accept any blame or responsibility for the predicament Palestinians find themselves in and what this means for the world.

The futility of the boycott movement and how this harms Palestinians far more than it does Israelis.

The Goldstone Report as political theatre and propaganda and how it has backfired on Palestinians.

The list could go on ad infinitum….

Arab Idiocy Week. Why not? It’s no more ludicrous, shameful, odious, idiotic and self serving than Israeli Apartheid Week so let’s get on with it. Balance and fairness demand nothing less.
