The ugly nazi face of "Free Palestine movement" - Refaat [Rafaat] Alareer

Reader comment on item: Who Won, Israel or Hamas?

Submitted by Parisi (United States), Oct 10, 2021 at 05:34

Refaat [Rafaat] Alareer, an "author" out of Gaza, of Islamic University of Gaza and of the "Free Palestine movement." And who contributed to the NYT in May, 2021 claiming that his child "asked" him something.

Around 2009, when his daughter Shymaa was five years old, she asked:
"Dad, who created the Jews?" I could not answer her question. Unfortunately I did not have answer to it. - Refaat.[1]

On Oct 8, 2021, in a kind of Jew hatred via projecting, while repeating the choice of a word meant as a slur,[2] attempted to belittle Nazism by casting it as the "mother" / source of the term he used in his slur, then he cursed and mocked with disgust the traditional Jewish greeting.[3]

The University of Hawaii at Manoa, perhaps unwittingly, helped conceal terrorist Mohammed Rafiq Alareer's true role on Al-Aqsa TV, the Jew-hating role that made him famous in Gaza, as well as his "day job" as an al-Qassam Brigades soldier. The screen grabs below of Refaat and Shymaa were taken from a YouTube video produced when Shymaa was five years old: She asked "Dad, who created the Jews?" I could not answer her question. Unfortunately I did not have answer to it. In April 2014, Rafaat Alareer was on a book tour in the United States, promoting a book he edited, "Gaza Writes Back". While he was in Washington DC, he was part of a group that met with Rep. Lujan-Grisham (D-NM) in her Washington, DC office.
