Before Bin Laden

Abu NidalEver wonder who the super duper tewwowist was before Bin Laden? I present to you Abu Nidal.

Abu Nidal was one of the world’s most ruthless terrorist leaders through the late 1990s. Primarily active in the 1970s and 1980s on the ultra-hardline fringe of the Palestine Liberation Organization and later the rejectionist front, Abu Nidal targeted Arab politicians and activists who were 0;soft” on the Israeli issue. Jews of all nationalities as well as political representatives of Western nations were also targets, especially those involved in the peace process in the Middle East.

Looks like another rich kid gone bad narrative.

Abu Nidal was born in Jaffa, on the Mediterranean coast of what was then the British Mandate of Palestine. His father, Hajj Khalil al-Banna, owned 6,000 acres (24 km2) of orange groves situated between Jaffa and Majdal, today Ashkelon in Israel.[15] The family lived in luxury in a three-storey stone house near the beach, later used as an Israeli military court.[16] Muhammad Khalil al-Banna, Abu Nidal’s brother, told Yossi Melman:

For someone so notorious, there is the usual paucity of pictures. Don’t tewwowists have their own paparazzi?

Another pathetic Abu Nidal hoax, helped along by the Greeks [as in Khartoum] the pathetic, was the 1988 [also] smoke bombing of the cruise liner City of Poros at Piraeus, which was still giving [to the lawyers and news media] in 2012

NIDAL ________________________________LADIN

This really says it all. Father of nothing, son of nothing; out of nothing come the villains — and the fake drama.

@faye – Very pertinent observation – linguistics seem fundamental to apprehend in relation to every type of contrived events and cultural memes. Moreso than numbers, (occult) linguistics work on a subconscious level on the masses and at the same time gives much meaning and might to the perpetrators. – According to the citation from Hoi Polloi both Abu Nidal and Bin Laden comes from the same cookbook of fantasy terror. Should we then be surprised the names themselves also stem from a fantasy source – say directly from the fictional Aladdin’s cave with magic lamps and fabulous riches ? –… Read more »

Thank you Unreal for the inspiring thoughts. We have now two arts of viewing the Nidal_Laden pair. Can we afford a third one? – I’d say yes, it is anyway implicit in the con-stellation, which was layed out by Hoi already. The first layer of the Nidal_Laden pair of Hoi refers to the symbolic topology of the figures: One is a son, the other a father, within their human language as it appear in life. In your observations human language – both names – gain their visibility on the backround of another historical layer: Nidal_Ladin are both NOT Alladin. What… Read more »

@Faye – Agree there might be many ways to interpret the origin and meaning of the names ‘Abu Nidal’ and ‘Bin Laden’. – From the Cluesforum article (NIDAL vs LADIN by Simon Shack) there are many intricate hypothesis on how both individuals might be related metaphorically or literally as their narrative is very similar in many ways. – I see both individuals as mere illusion and thus simulated personaes – and thereby see no meaning to the ficticious father/son ‘con-stellation’ as you humourosly describe it. Additionnally, both Nidal and Ladin were more or less contemporary figurines of terror. – My… Read more »

Haha,, quite comical in retrospect. “Nidal” even, immediately postumously reported, attaches himself to the Lockerbie fake plane crash in an alleged “pre-death bed confession” …giving that psy-op another burst of energy and change of direction. Tam Dalyell, Labour MP for Linlithgow, has long maintained that Nidal was to blame, and not Libyans. I hadn’t heard of another “black box” psy-op the “bombing” of the Sudan Club and the Greek owned Acropole Hotel in Khartoum, where an alleged British familhy of four, who had only been in town for two months [hmmmmmm] died in a “Nidal attack” in Lockerbie-year 1988. But… Read more »

Funny link; Osama bin Laden also lived and worked in Khartoum, Sudan. I’ve seen his mansion there, with huge “satellite” dishes in the garden.

Yup – I wrote about the Abu Nidal entity back in 2010.

It makes for a fascinating little read, imho :

And no, I have no connection whatsoever with the Bin Ladin family, folks – I promise you! 😛
