Why Palestinians r being called Baljekyeen ?

I asked my mother and different people many times, their respond always the same ! because they used to send milk to feed the refugees and the children when we were being kicked out from Palestine by the Zionists; so we were raised by a Belgium milk loool others said because baljika is the only country who supported Palestine and still supporting it; politically I mean ..
so do u know another reason why Palestinians r being called baljekyeen ?

I don't like it by the way ... I may laugh when i hear it but I don't like to ...

According to my father, Palestenians are called Baljeekeyeen because they received tents (after the war) that are "Made in Belgium".

I heard the same story as Qabbani's, enno during the black-september clashes here in Jordan they used to recognize the Pal dead bodies from the Jor ones by examining the Bos6ar, where the pal's was made in Belgium while the Jor's was made in the states :D

Baljikyeh is an interesting term some people take it seriously as an insult other take is as a joke; one of my friend have always had "Baljiki" as his nickname online ending up having his name on our phone book as "Baljiki" but it's just a joke between us.

After the September incidents a lot of the Palestinian detainees were tortured by sinking their heads in a water bucket simulating drowning. This process was known as "wetting" the prisoner. So the interrogator would yell to the torturer "wet him first until I can join you" OR
"Bill tajeek"
which later morphed to
"Biljeek"

It's funny that no one remembers that had Palestine not been divided into two part, there would've been no people claiming that they're from Jordanian origins.
Or have we all been brain washed that we forgot that the east and the west banks on the sides of the river are both Palestinian in origin?? :)

SimSim said...

anonymous: ok lets say we r all Arabs that would be better :)

Amjad Wadiِ said...

It is ok from me :) because they know me, and because we joke around with so many things .. except the forbidden :-)
