Named Her Babies After Iranian Missiles

New baby names in Gaza: 'Fajr' and 'Ahmed Jabari'

[link]

Gazans commemorate Operation Pillar of Defense by naming babies after long-range missiles, Hamas military commander

Less than a week after the declaration of a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, Operation Pillar of Defense has already left its mark on the people of Gaza, in a rather unexpected way.

Some parents from the Strip have decided to name their newborn babies after operation-affiliated icons from assassinated Hamas commanders to long-range missiles fired at Israel.

Muhammad al-Shafi'i Abu Nassat named his son, who was born Friday, after the Fajr missile. Naming his baby Fajr, Abu Nassat told Gaza media, was his way of expressing his gratitude to Iran, which was responsible for supplying Gaza with rockets that, according to Abu Nassat "struck the enemy for eight days."

Amira Abu Assus, from the northern Gaza Strip, also named her child Fajr, Arabic for 'dawn', and says she picked out the name even before she went into labor last week.


She said she knew that the unborn baby would have "a bright future within Palestinian resistance. He would carry the rockets whose names he bears so as to free Palestine from Israeli occupation."


NOTE: when they say 'Israeli occupation' in Gaza, they mean 'Israel's existence'. Sample: [link] "Today, we say, in a clear and unambiguous fashion: The armed resistance and armed struggle are our strategic choice and our path to liberate the Palestinian land, from the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan] River"


Adham Murtaja of Gaza City decided to name his son, born on Friday, after Ahmed Jabari, the Hamas military chief who was assassinated by the IDF at the onset of Operation Pillar of Defense.

Murtaja said he decided to name his child Ahmed Jabari to prove to Israel that the Jabari assassination did not mean that the Palestinian nation stopped producing heroes.


Read: martyrdom seeking terrorists who take pride in launching attacks at unarmed Jewish civilians for their mythology of "resistance".


Meanwhile, Hamas managed to enforce the ceasefire with Israel by imposing Islamic law.

Hamas Ministry of Religious Endowments issued a religious decree (Fatwa) whereby any violation of the ceasefire was forbidden as long as Israel maintained it.

"Violating the ceasefire with Israel is forbidden and irresponsible," the Fatwa stated; "respecting the appeasement is the duty of each and every one of us."


In similar spirit, I'm wondering how many people called their sons 'Osama' in honor of the world's most notable terrorist of the past decade. What do you think about this use of baby-names?

Fair enough. How about this though... [link]

p.s. Hamas won the majority vote in 2006 and have taken complete power over the Gaza strop by deadly force in 2007.

You're being completely irrelevant. How does MY hate come to life with a story about Gaza Arabs calling their kids after rockets aimed at Jews? What's to love here?

There are more meaningful things to discuss in politics than your displeasure with people naming their kids after things. Yes, we get it, you're scared of the nasty terrorists and it sucks, but this thread is pointless and sounds like it came out of complaints rather than starting a rich discussion.

You're missing my point about child-abuse in the Arab Israeli conflict.

It's not child abuse. I was named after a saint and I'm not Christian. My name has not affected my decision to join or leave a religion. What will define the kid's outcome is his environment and HIS decision, not a name they may or may not relate to.

Just because it's against your opinion doesn't mean it's abuse. It's not any different than naming your kid after a football player or a saint - things you are passionate about.

"It's not child abuse" [to subject a child to martyrdom mythology]

You convinced me. I now believe, like you, that this -- [link] -- is good parenting.

People name their kids after many important events and times in their lives. This is now different. Look up any number of names, you will five that some are names of weapons or things.

The japanese did this often with their naming conventions.

I don't really find one case of a baby-naming incident to be terribly reflective of world politics, cultural ideas, or mythologies. Frankly, trying to extrapolate it into a discussion makes you sound petty, but perhaps this isn't anything new to you :shrug:.

I really love that you used the word 'extrapolate' because it means you take your information seriously.
Sadly, I've done some serious research into the Arab-Israeli conflict and this 'incident' where a bunch of people in Gaza name their children in such manner and perpetuate their myth for conflict enhancement is nothing short of a longstanding culture. Examples of this can be seen in a multitude of documentaries, regardless if the maker is making a generic documentary on their society or one that tries to make a statement against or in favor of their "struggle" with Israel['s existence].

A reasonable documentary that does not make Israel look good, but does shed light on the phenomenon is called 'Death in Gaza'. You can give it a look for some further insight. There are a few other important video links on my journal that give better insight on some important aspects.

'MoShark' after the one Israel sent on unsuspecting Egyptian tourists. *dies laughing* - [link]

Yes!

Is that the shark that was biting people's asses and hands off?

Because that shark was 'trained' by a diver to come to humans for tourists.
It then associated people with free food and that's why it bit off hands (because hands were feeding it) and people's asses (because that's where the feed bag was).

I wish we could somehow cut out that region of the middle east and just stick it in the middle of the ocean somewhere. Both sides do things they know will provoke the other. Israel will always come off best and ultimately calls the shots though.

Just a thought: I figure there's plenty more trouble in other places in the middle east. e.g. 45000 casualties in Syria.

The Syria issue is just a case of mis-direction. "look how bad the situation is in Syria, why does everybody focus on Israel". You will find it being used by Israel's supporters all over the internet where any discussion or criticism of Israel occurs.

I think they got a memo about how to mis-direct forum conversations away from Israel actions.

Maybe its because Israel is always attacked as 'disproportional' when defending itself, so there's no leeway to end it.

Doesn't matter. Was merely pointing out the two situations are different.

Is your government even giving them enough time to police their citizens? Your rocket shield is over 90% effective isn't it? Giving them time to find those responsible for the attacks to be prosecuted before moving in with the big guns would probably be effective.

When they want to police their militant factions, they are more than capable. As you can see in recent days, no rockets were fired into Israel... after Hamas started to worry about what would happen next if they don't declare a "victory" and order everyone to stop firing at Israel.
