Over the weekend, the UN voted in favor (with the US abstaining) of a resolution calling for an immediate cease fire in the ever increasingly bloody Israeli War on Gaza. Of course, the resolution was brushed off by both the Israelis and the Palestinians. The Palestinians do not have membership in the United Nations as a sovereign state, but Israel does and has signed the UN Charter that obliges its members to adhere to Security Council resolutions. What’s interesting is the background behind how the US voted to abstain from the resolution; a resolution that certainly would have carried more weight with both the Israelis and Hamas if we voted in favor of it. It’s also odd, considering the resolution was in part drafted, crafted, and written by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Just read this excerpt from a news article on how this all came about:
The United States, Israel’s main ally, had initially been expected to voted in line with the other 14 but Rice later became the sole abstention. “In the night between Thursday and Friday, when the secretary of state wanted to lead the vote on a ceasefire at the Security Council, we did not want her to vote in favour,” Olmert said. “I said ‘get me President Bush on the phone’. They said he was in the middle of giving a speech in Philadelphia. I said I didn’t care. ‘I need to talk to him now’. He got off the podium and spoke to me. “I told him the United States could not vote in favour. It cannot vote in favour of such a resolution. He immediately called the secretary of state and told her not to vote in favour.”
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
This came straight from Prime Minister Olmert’s mouth. Who the hell does he think he (and the State of Israel) are, telling the United States how to run its foreign policy? Moreover, what the hell is President Bush doing genuflecting before this bunch of war mongering, racist, religious zealots masquerading as a democracy? It makes you wonder if our entire Foreign Policy in the Middle East for the past eight years has been crafted by the Israeli government, doesn’t it? This begs the question…WHY? What do the Israelis have on The United States that could be considered blackmail, and why haven’t we called them on it? All we have to do is completely cut off their aid, and let’s see how fast they come crawling back to mama…that is of course, if they REALLY do need the money in the first place.
This is also interesting in light of a story that the NY Times reported over the weekend concerning Israel’s plans last year concerning an air raid on Iranian nuclear facilities that could not only have started a massive war in the Middle East, but could have exposed millions to radiation poisoning. The raid would have required the US to provide Israel with not only bunker busting bombs (basically tactical nukes) but permission to fly over Iraqi air space. From all reports (and they were clearly EXTREMELY on deep background), to his credit President Bush was shocked at the audacity of the plan, and had to assure the Israelis that the US was working on covert means of eliminating the Iranian nuclear “threat”. If all of what I’m writing about today doesn’t have you changing your underwear by this point, something is wrong with you.
Israel wants nothing but WAR. It wants nothing but the elimination of every non-Jew from what they consider to be their God-given real estate. Right now they are working on Muslims, but rest assured, Christians will be next. You see, they have quite a grudge that has been built up for thousands of years against Christians that needs to be settled; despite what any of these fundamentalist Christian, Israel loving, congregations tell you. Wouldn’t you? Spanish Inquisition, anyone…just for starters? They are mad dogs on a quest, and they will stop at NOTHING until they are secure in what they perceive to be their homeland. If you are not a Jew, then you are NOTHING to them.
Once again, I need to make this clear: what I am talking about is the Zionist-controlled government of Israel, not all Jews. There is a VAST difference; Judaism is a religion, Zionism is a political movement. There are PLENTY of Jews both within and outside of Israel who DO NOT SUPPORT THE ACTIONS that have been taken in recent days, nor in the past. Their voices have been silenced by their own press, or they have been afraid to speak up. Our own media has not looked beyond the propaganda that it is being fed from “somewhere” (and I’ll let you fill in your own blanks there). All I know is that people are dying at the hands of wild dogs that we help birth, and they need to be put on a short leash as soon as possible before they send us all straight to Hell.
“If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?” – David Ben-Gurion
