Lina Allan, a Palestinian-Jordanian activist who lives in Michigan, published a video in which she attempted to rebut the position of people who prohibit the stabbing of Jews by Palestinians.
Allan called on these people to not talk about something they don’t understand and to “go back to watching Turkish soap operas” instead.
She added that objecting to the stabbing of Jews is like defending animal rights “at best.” In 2011, Allan co-founded the Jordanian “Step & Mile” NGO, and in 2012, she represented the State Department’s U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) in the Jameed Festival in Jordan, according to an interview she gave to the Jordanian Royal TV.
Following are excerpts:
Lina Allan: Hello. Today, I’d like to talk about something that has been going on for a while, but still, I felt that I should talk about it and express my opinion.
“Is the stabbing of Jews haram [prohibited in Islam]?”
Lina Allan: Some people have commented on the Palestinians’ stabbing of Jews, by saying that it is haram, that it is prohibited.
The people who say that these stabbings are prohibited are trying to give the impression that they are sensitive, delicate people, and to create a [singer] Tamer Hosny-style, human-rights atmosphere. Let me tell you that at best, you are representing animal rights – not human rights, but at best, animal rights. Let me tell you, even animals would not object to this if they could talk.
Spare us your views, and go back to watching Turkish soap operas. It would be better if you didn’t talk about something you don’t understand.
I, Lina Allan, do not support the Palestinian government or any party. I support the Palestinian people, and I support any decision made by the Palestinian people, in order to regain its rights and its land. In conclusion: “Oh mountain, don’t let the wind shake you.” I will see you in my next video. Assalaam Alaykum.
