Not With US Help

For ten days Israel has been punishing Gaza’s civilians for the actions of Hamas…..and the US has called for ceasefire….most of that is rhetoric and means nothing….just a way to calm the protests and cover Israel’s ass for them (something we do constantly).

***A ceasefire after 11 days is holding but it is a very shaky cease***

The US has never been serious about a solution that is beneficial to both sides…..not since the 1970s that is…..and it is NOT serious today.

Why would I say this?

more than 300 American lawmakers publicly pledged their unconditional loyalty to a foreign power.

In a letter to the chair and ranking member of the House Appropriations Committee, the members of Congress cautioned against “reducing funding or adding conditions on” US welfare checks (totaling $3.8 billion annually) to Israel.

The letter name-checks US President Joe Biden, who, nearly a year ago tried to have it both ways — decrying Israeli annexation of Palestinian land and the eviction of Palestinian residents to make room for Israeli squatters (“settlers”), while likewise volubly assuring Jewish campaign donors, “I’m not going to place conditions on security assistance.”

Now Biden and members of Congress from both sides of the partisan aisle feign surprise and dismay as the Israeli regime once again makes war on the populations of the Israeli-occupied West Bank and the Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip.

What the heck did they expect?

Peace in Palestine? Not if American Politicians Can Help It

But as they (whoever “they” are) actions speak louder than words…..

The UN Security Council was considering a statement condemning the violence in Gaza, which has left hundreds of Palestinians dead including dozens of women and children, and calling for a ceasefire—but the US blocked it Monday, the Wall Street Journal reports. According to Al Jazeera, that’s the third time in a week US opposition to such a statement has prevented one from being released. The council held an emergency virtual meeting to discuss the crisis, and China, which holds the rotating presidency of the council for the month of May, drafted the statement late Sunday. After it was blocked by the US, a Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson told reporters, “We urge the US to shoulder its fair share of responsibilities, take a just stance, and work with the majority of the international community to support the Security Council.”

 
Times of Israel, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken became the first US official to call for a ceasefire late Sunday. The draft UN statement, obtained by the Times, “expressed [the council’s] grave concern regarding the crisis related to Gaza and the loss of civilian lives and casualties, and called for de-escalation of the situation, cessation of violence and respect for international humanitarian law, including the protection of civilians, especially children.” On Monday afternoon, Israel’s defense minister thanked the US for blocking it, the Independent
Another reason there should be NO ONE country that can veto the will of the UN….plus there should be NO permanent members on the Security Council….that in NO way promotes democracy and that was the original intent for the UN.
 
If there is to be a peace then do not look to the US for leadership….we are too busy stroking the scrotum of BiBi.
 
While we snuggle up to Israel innocent civilians continue to die in the name of self-defense.
 
Keep in mind that Israel buys US weapons with US taxpayer dollars….

On May 5, Hamas commander Mohammed Deif issued a warning to Israel’s government: Unless Israeli police and troops stopped attacking Palestinians in Jerusalem — including not just those protesting against the regime’s theft of their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood on behalf of Israeli “settlers,” but also worshipers at al-Aqsa mosque, one of Islam’s most sacred sites — rockets would fly.

On the same day, the Biden administration notified Congress of its approval for Boeing’s sale of $735 worth of Joint Direct Attack Munitions to the Israeli regime.

When Israel’s Regime Buys US Weapons, It Buys Them With Your Money

 
Ask yourself this….if the Biden group condemns the Saudis action in Yemen…why not Gaza?
 
What part of killing civilians is acceptable?   Any civilian.

      1. Quote/UnQuote: In Saner Thought says: “In a letter to the chair and ranking member of the House Appropriations Committee, the members of Congress cautioned against “reducing funding or adding conditions on” US welfare checks (totaling $3.8 billion annually) to Israel.”

        Totally agree, the US should terminate all foreign aid to peddler or bribe favorable acceptance of US interests abroad.

      2. Restore the bureaucratic autonomy of the States of the Republic, with the aimed for consequence – the break up of the Corporate monopoly strangle hold on the US economy.

      3. The states have too much power as it is…..we need a strong nation and we d not have it now…..control of corporations and their monetary influence would help solve some of our problems. chuq

      4. How do ya figure? Post Civil War Washington has stripped the States of their autonomy. States used to appoint their own Federal Senators. Remember the statement by Ron Paul: that in his over 20 years as a Congressman, that he had never spoken with any Governor of the State of Texas!

        Ban all special interests groups ie lobbies from Washington. How? Force all Federal Congressmen or Senators to only introduce Bills to Congress which come from State legislatures.

      5. When states can make it harder to vote when the nation guarantees the right is too powerful…states are limiting the power that some residents have in an attempt to guarantee their place in power…..we either have state laws or we have national laws….more on this later. chuq

      6. According to the Constitution, last I heard, the US exists as a Republic. The term Democracy, never once located: not in the Declaration of Independence nor in the current Constitution…and most definitely not in the prior Constitution – the Articles of the Confederations of the States.

    1. Yo beetleypete, do you likewise favor Foreign armies stationed on US soil to compel the US government to restore lands stolen from the American Indians? LOL that’s a funny joke.
