Major Palestinian Opportunity!

27 12 2017

Guatemala is the first country about to actually move it’s Embassy to Jerusalem.   What an opportunity for the Palestinians to take the leadership and demand the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic States immediately pass the following simple and direct resolution:

“We the Arab and Muslim States declare that if Guatemala moves it’s Embassy to Jerusalem we will demand they close their Embassies in our countries.”

Israeli “left” also insists JERUSALEM IS OURS ALONE!

27 12 2017

Yair Lapid is said to be one of the ‘good Jew’ leaders of from Zionist left who claims to ‘want peace’ with the Palestinians.   But the faux Zionist “left” including most in “Peace Now” has for years tried to deceive and trick the Palestinians and the world — and in that sense they should be despised even more than the “right”.   Lapid’s public statement to journalists a few days ago helps make this more evident than ever.

The U.S. Is GUILTY!

Palestinian 'Day of Rage' in East Jerusalem

It’s not just Trump about Jerusalem in 2017.

A hundred years ago President Wilson and Supreme Court Justice Brandeis intimately colluded with the British in the infamous Balfour Declaration.

Then 70 years ago, after failing in the Security Council, the U.S. bullied, blackmailed and quite literally connived with the Zionist Jews forcing the UNGA to pass the Partition Resolution after it too initially failed.

In 1967 and 1973 the U.S. provided the Israelis the arms, money and secret intelligence making possible their further illegal expansion including the taking of Jerusalem and what are still the “occupied territories” today.

In 1978 the U.S. bribed and tricked the Egyptians at Camp David and then refused to honor the agreement allowing the Israelis to further repress the Palestinian people.

In 1993 the U.S. midwifed the “Oslo Agreement” and then miserably failed to enforced it’s terms allowing the Israelis to implement worst-than-apartheid conditions on the Palestinians and build the “separation” (i.e. imprisonment) wall.

Overall the U.S. has supplied the tiny State of Israel more arms, more money, and more covert operations than any other country ever in history.

Throughout all these years the U.S. has vetoed more Security Council resolutions for Israel than all other vetoes.

The guilt of the U.S. in complicity with Israel is overwhelmingly evident despite all the meaningless American rhetoric about “Peace Process” and “Two-State Solution”.   Holding the Americans responsible is what the world should now be demanding.  This week’s UNGA vote should be a new start with that in mind, not an end.





‘This vote will be remembered’!

22 12 2017

So spoketh yesterday the neoconish Trumpee Ambassador to the U.N. after she and her deranged American President kept warning and threatening and badgering and bullying the nations of the world all week.

Indeed Mr. Trump and Ms. Halley and USA, “This Vote Will Be Remembered!”





Biggest Financial Heist/Scam Ever!

17 12 2017

Trump, Kushner, and the Trumpee Super-Wealthy oligarchs have inserted tremendously self-serving provisions in the about to be passed new tax code that will greatly benefit themselves financially. It is a great con job, a spectacular deception, a monumental scam that they so crassly and deceptively claim is a middle class tax cut.  They should not only be held accountable at the polls next year. The media should be all over this right now today as it is still possible to derail this travesty IF the public becomes quickly aware of the many provisions designed for Trump and family as well as his super-money backers. Here are just a few pithy quotes about this dastardly Trumpee Republican tax law about to be finally voted on in a few days:

“The GOP Plan Is the Biggest Tax Increase in American History, By Far.”  The Intercept

“The Biggest Tax Scam in History.” New York Times

“It’s absolutely despicable… One of the worst bills ever considered by Congress. This bill truly is a scam. It is the biggest tax increase in American history. MoveOn

“This tax bill is a moral and economic obscenity. It is a gift to wealthy Republican campaign contributors and an insult to the working families of our country.”  Senator Bernie Sander

Worst bill in the history of the United States Congress…a bill that had no hearings, no expert testimony.” Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi





What the Arab and Muslim Nations Could Do!

15 12 2017

(Trump and Pence sign the Jerusalem Declaration with Christian and U.S. national symbolism behind them)

     If the Arab regimes were serious rather than cowardly, if the Arab League had dignity rather than hot air, if the Organization of the Islamic Conference had fortitude rather than impotence, there would be more than words and condemnations with regard to Jerusalem and the ever-escalating Israeli occupation and Apartheid of the Palestinian people.
Indeed the American Trumpees and Pencees have actually given the Arabs and the Muslims a historical hook on which to take a bold and forceful step not just to condemn the Americans but to seriously warn them and make them pay if they proceed.  Just imagine if this statement came from both the Arab League and the OIC:

“If the U.S. moves its embassy to the historic city of Jerusalem before there is an acceptable agreement between Israel and the Palestinians endorsed by both the PLO and the United Nations, we the Arab States and we the Muslim nations pledge that we will counter such a treacherous move by demanding that the American Embassies in Arab and Muslim capitols be closed and the U.S. will be told to instead locate their Embassies in other locations to be determined by each country until such a full peace agreement is reached and internationally endorsed.”

The Americans so often make threats and ultimatums and think no one will stand up to them.   Now the Arab and Muslim countries have a unique historical opportunity to do so!





PALESTINIAN resistance to brutal occupation IS Fully JUSTIFIED

12 12 2017

I wrote this nearly two months ago, and it’s more valid than ever today:

Let’s be very clear about this.   The Palestinians have every right to fight, resist, and attack those who have so brutally and illegally occupied them; destroying their villages and homes; carving them up into worse-than-apartheid prison-like enclaves; assassinating and imprisoning their leaders; and terribly defying international laws and a multitude of U.N. resolutions.

The Israelis, the Jewish/Zionist/Evangelical organizations that make up their “lobby”, and the United States itself,  are all guilty and complicitous of such conduct over a long period of modern history.

And so fighting and resisting and attacking Israeli occupation and settlement building is fully justified.   Furthermore it is up to those suffering and struggling and actually doing the fighting  to decide what they will do and when and how; not to comfortable arm-chair pundits and so called “peace-process”, largely super hypocritical, advocates.
