‘Rocket Girl’ for those of you hearing the name for the very first time, is an Arab ‘journalist’ (anti-Israel agitprop operative) working for the Finnish media.
Three years ago I made Aishi Zidan internationally famous as ‘Rocket Girl’, when she let it slip that Hamas were using the Shifa hospital in Gaza City as a launching pad site for its rockets into Israel. At the time she worked at the Helsingin Sanomat, she now has since moved on to work for the state broadcaster Yle.
— US President Donald Trump is rumored to intend to recognize controversial Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The consequences would be unpredictable, writes Yle’s Middle East correspondent Aishi Zidan.
It is difficult to imagine a more sensitive issue than the position of Jerusalem. Jerusalem is religiously important to three great religions: Jews, Muslims, and Christians.
— The decision could have very unpredictable consequences in the Middle East. Jerusalem’s position is one of the most difficult issues to be resolved between the Palestinians and the Israelis.
Jerusalem is currently roughly divided by the Israelis living in West Jerusalem and the Palestinians living in East Jerusalem. In practice, the city has been under Israeli control since Israel occupied East Jerusalem in 1967.
Jerusalem is important to predominantly only one religious group/people, the Jews, Christians come in second due to their gospel stories taking place there. Muslims, it’s only of recent importance to them solely because it’s of importance to both Jews and Christians.

Israel is not ‘occupying’ E.Jerusalem, it’s but the eastern half of their capital, it was Jordan that was illegally occupying it before the 67′ war. Once again, her ‘analysis’ is shown to be nothing more than Arab propaganda that’s accepted by the #fakemeda. She goes on.
Israel has declared the entire Jerusalem its undivided capital. It has built its settlements in East Jerusalem to strengthen its grip on the eastern part of the city. The international community has not recognized the incorporation of East Jerusalem into Israel. According to international law, East Jerusalem is an occupied area, and therefore, for example, settlements are generally considered illegal.
What propagandist ‘Rocket Girl’ will never tell Finnish readers is, the League of Nations at the San Remo Conference signed accords recognizing the Jews rights to the area called Palestine, ancient Israel. The accords “confirmed the pledge contained in the Balfour Declaration concerning the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine.” That Included not only Jerusalem, but all of Jordan as well.
Israel ended up not getting the area now called Jordan, which was 73% of the entire mandate set aside for the Jews, they ended up with less than the 27% remaining, with areas carved out for yet another Arab Muslim state. The Jews accepted it and the ruling clans of Muslim Arabs did not.
The armed Islamist Hamas organization, which is louder than the Palestinian Authority, threatened on the weekend that the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel would lead to a new Palestinian uprising. The new uprising has otherwise been considered unlikely in the near future. The destruction and difficulties of the uprising at the beginning of the 21st century are still fresh in the Palestinian people.
At the same time, it should be remembered that the Palestinian territories are suffering much frustrated due to decades of Israeli occupation. It only grows when the solution to the situation is not in sight. Yle
‘Rocket Girl’ is not from Hamas, but the PA, so she highlights (correctly) the Islamic dimension of the movement but then slides right back into her agitprop mode, the ‘Israeli occupation’ is to blame for their suffering and frustration, not the decades of Arab misrule and corruption. She can’t help herself, and this is why she is, where she is, part of the overall Arab campaign to de-legtimize the Jewish state at every turn.
The former Israeli ambassador to Finland, Avi Granot (whose parents were Schindler’s Jews) accurately describes the mindset of the propagandists who habitually blame Israel for everything.
