Nonie Darwish

Yet, another brave Arab woman and with no less than a childhood in Gaza. Mrs. Nonie Darwish is now American.

Read this article to understand her. But be warned - it is forceful, convincing and to the soul. All the other articles on her homepage are also worth reading. Look at the archives section where most of the articles are found.
I remember going to a Palestinian preschool and kindergarten and the word "Jew" instilled terror and dread into the core of my very being. A Jewish person was portrayed like less than human, a dog, an evil alien from outer space who was about to destroy the world. Jews, they said, had no home because they were cursed by God and the main mission of Islam was to get rid of Jews. As a small child I remember once, at a Palestinian school, asking "why?" The response was that I was a traitor for asking this question and would go to hell, and for the rest of the day the girls in the school did not talk to me. The education was mainly political, teaching kids the hatred of Israel. Arabic poetry was recited daily, with tears in Palestinian children's eyes, on how Palestine was taken from them and how they will retaliate and even die to get it back.
More Mrs. Darwish:

Hat tip to Raw Data for the comment and the blog Kesher Talk. At Kesher talk there is this must read fine posting on the film, "Paradise Now", a glorification of two suicide bombers. Mrs. Darwish delivers a strong critique. It just might win an Oscar tonight - in which case I shall never watch anything to do with the Oscars ever again.
Nonie Darwish harshly criticized the Palestinian film about two suicide bombers for "putting a human face on the murderers of children."

She warned that if Paradise Now, one of five nominees in the best foreign film category, wins an Oscar at Sunday evening's ceremony, "it will send a message to young Arabs that we are accepted in the West and we have won."
