Something completely different today…………….I have a full day of doctors and lectures today….so I will be depending on drafts that I have saved……
Now that the war on Palestinians is over (for now) there is a full court press to protect Israel from any repercussions from there all out destruction of Gaza…….According to U.S. Congressman Steve Israel (D-NY), the Israeli government hopes that he and his colleagues in Washington, DC will do everything in their power to prevent the International Criminal Court from pushing forward with possible war crimes charges against his nation over its recent attack on the Gaza Strip which resulted in the killing over nearly 1,900 Palestinians, including a large proportion of civilians and hundreds of children.
The US Senate rushed to the aid if Israel with Senate Resolution #526…..
Bill text available as:
The US just repeats the lies that Israel spreads…like the tunnel thing….and that the war was about getting Hamas…..the war was about total destruction of the Gaza infrastructure, nothing else….and the whole democracy thing is also a lie……elections do not make a democracy…………time for the US to do the right thing and cut the cord!
And now the nuclear Middle East……….
After spurning the Syria-backed resolution, the IAEA voted 117-0 in favor of an Egypt version that called on “all states in the region” to join the NPT. Israel is the only nation in the entire region that is not a member of the NPT, so it effectively urges the exact same thing, just avoiding mentioning Israel by name.
At that time, during the NPT’s own conference, the United States signed and loudly endorsed a call for a “nuclear free Middle East.” When it was pointed out after the conference that this meant Israel, the only nuclear-armed nation, the State Department issued a statement of “deep regret” over the deal, complaining it unfairly singled out Israel.
The US has been covering Israel’s ass since 1948…….at what point does it become monotonous……..it is about time that Israel stand on their own and start taking responsibility for their actions. They have become a bully….and a bully with protectors in their pockets.
As long as their money is spread around like peanut butter among our politicians there will never be a point that we do not bend to their, Israel’s, will.
I know…..I know….I am a dreamer….as long as the defense contractors can make money we will forever be kneeling to Israel……a position that America has become too comfortable with after so many years.
As my reader can tell….. I have become truly disgusted with the situation.
