As for my first paragraph--do you admit that the left opposes the
Many people who call themselves "left" oppose the settlements. But one
the posters the National Socialists put on walls said that "left" and
"right" were outdated terms.
As for my second paragraph--there were not always so many nations (raw
numbers or %) denouncing Israel for something, and Britain and France
certainly have not always opposed something they did. Obama has gone on
record opposing the settlements,
Talk is nothing. Don't you know anything about politicians? When is he
going to cut aid to Israel?
even with this UN veto.
Actions are everything.
He and theIsrael Is Boss
Israeli Prime Minister had a contentious meeting about this issue last
by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley
March 18, 2010
"The Obama administration, like every other presidential
administration in the last sixty years, does what Israel wants it to
The United States may invade and occupy Iraq, undermine elected
presidents in Haiti and throw its weight around in numerous ways in
numerous parts of the world. Yet there is one country it does not dare
to confront. Of course, the nation in question is Israel.
Israel and its allies in the United States make certain that no
president, no political party, no congressional leader nor any citizen
who wishes to be in any way influential, will dare to step outside the
lines of proscribed behavior and discourse. The American public,
either because they are aware of the pro-Israel grip on power, or
because they have swallowed the propaganda whole, remain cowed and
Israel can do whatever it wants not only with the United States, but
with other western nations as well. Mossad agents succeeded in
murdering Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabouh in Dubai last month by using
doctored British, Irish, French, Australian and German passports and
credit cards issued to an Israeli-run bank located in South Dakota.
None of the nations involved has uttered more than the slightest peep
after having their sovereignty violated in such an obvious manner.
"None of the nations involved in the Dubai assassination has uttered
more than the slightest peep after having their sovereignty violated."
Just in case there was any doubt about who is in charge, Israel
insulted Vice President Joseph Biden and the United States government
when Biden made a recent visit to Jerusalem. Biden made the pro forma
journey to go through the motions of requesting that the peace process
continue. The Israelis could have nudged, winked and gone through the
pretense of moving forward on a just peace process. Instead they
announced that more Jewish housing will be constructed on Palestinian
land, embarrassing the Vice President and his boss, who wanted to
pretend to be even handed when they and the rest of American political
leadership are anything but. The Obama administration, like every
other presidential administration in the last sixty years, does what
Israel wants it to do. There shouldn't be any reason for Israel to
yank the Americans' chain so hard and so publicly, but why follow the
rules of diplomatic niceties when doing otherwise has been so
The only thing worse than the obvious slap in the face, is the phony
outrage surrounding it. No one gets anywhere near a presidential
nomination without first swearing obedience to the Zionists and their
lobby. If Obama and Biden and Hillary Clinton were truly upset with
the Israelis, it is only because they were so blatant in making them
all look like chumps.
"No one gets anywhere near a presidential nomination without first
swearing obedience to the Zionists and their lobby."
Just a few weeks before Obama was sworn into office, George W. Bush
and Condoleezza Rice were the victims of an Israeli public beat down.
Bush was literally pulled off a stage where he was about to give a
speech and forced to take a phone call from then Israeli prime
minister Ehud Olmert. Rice had worked on a Security Council resolution
which merely called for a cease fire in Israel's massacre of thousands
of people in Gaza. Olmert bragged in a press conference, "I said, 'I
don't care; I have to talk to him.'" Not content to tell the world
that he ordered the American president to follow his orders, he took a
swipe at Rice too. "He gave an order to the secretary of state, and
she did not vote in favor of it - a resolution she cooked up,
phrased, organized and maneuvered for. She was left pretty shamed, and
abstained on a resolution she arranged." It isn't surprising that
Israel would repeat the humiliation just a year later with a different
It doesn't matter if David Axelrod goes on the Sunday morning news
shows and fakes outrage about Israel's settlements. It matters that
Israel continues to steal Palestinian land and it matters that only
those willing to go along with the crime are allowed to entertain any
idea of having a role in United States foreign policy decisions.
"The United States government is actually becoming more and more like
Far from being angry at Israel, the United States government is
actually becoming more and more like that nation. The Obama
administration claims the right to carry out extra judicial
assassinations just like their Middle East partner in crime. The
temporary embarrassment and damage control pronouncements are not
worthy of anyone's attention.
The only lesson to learn from this sorry episode is that nothing new
has taken place between the United States and Israel. All Americans
are still made complicit in the joint criminality and earn the enmity
of most of the world as a result. So don't believe the hype. There is
nothing to see here, just move along.
