It's called being monumentally gullible. The US imagines that simply having an 'ally' in the Mid-East, however fair weathered and one-sided the
relationship is, is some kind of security net to order to micro manage the area.
They are wrong.
Israel is one of THE largest destabilising forces in the area, and always has been since it's inception in the 40's.
They routinely flaunt UN rules and resolutions and have even murdered the personnel of at least one UN monitoring station, when it was bombed, 'by
accident, of course', we no penalty whatsoever.
They have perpetrated war on many of their neighbours in an almost cavalier fashion, using vastly superior technologies and powerful armaments, again,
in a seemingly ironic reversal of the biblical stories of 'David and Goliath'.
They appear to think nothing of causing the genocide of the less able people in the area, which is astoundingly and incomprehensibly ironic
considering the Jewish people's own brush with oblivion a few short decades ago.
And again, in stupendously amazing parallels with Polish Jews in the 30's and 40's, Israel have turned the country of Palestine into a virtual
Ghetto, complete with below subsistence standards, and severe wanting, hardship and brutality metered out on it's peoples, in almost a carbon copy of
the Nazi's systematic abuse and the Ghettoization of the Polish and other Jews.
Anyone seeing a pattern?
And yet, the West gives continued aid, including political and military support to Israel in spite of the many real parallels of the evils perpetrated
on human beings in 1930's and 1940's Europe, leading to multi-millions being slaughtered during WWII.
The Irony is tangible.
The governments and politicians of our Western countries often state that we must never forget the terrible atrocities that occurred during this dark
time in the world, lest we are destined to repeat them.
Yes, talk IS cheap, isn't it. It appears to be happening again, right under all of our noses, yet far from remembering what 'we must never forget',
we are actually aiding and abetting this outrage.
Are we going to continue to help the twisted government and agents of Israel perpetrate these atrocities on it's poorer and weaker neighbours, until
they are exterminated?
As a child growing up in what i felt was one of, if not the greatest country on Earth, Great Britain i was under the illusion that we did not tolerate
this kind of thing.
We would seek to redress the balance, and right the wrongs and actively fight the guilty with sanctions and pressure, or so i thought.
I had held similar views about the United States too. I felt secure in the knowledge that where there were bullies and evil governments prepared to
inflict this abuse, there would be countries like ours, ready to stop or prevent it. I certainly didn't think we would be aiding a country whose
actions mirror those of the German Nazi government.
WHY are we doing this? The logical answer is to have a base of operations in the area, from which to strike at 'rogue' nations in the area, should
the need arise. The West believes a militarily strong Israel, even if she happens to be morally bereft, is a necessary evil for the protection of the
This is obviously far from so. With every Israeli outrage, and continued Western support of the same, further utter hatred ensues, not only the
perpetrators but also those that support them, namely us. So basically, this policy is destabilising and actually a danger to the West, rather than
Would it be any different if our people were the one's being murdered? If it were our children being brutalised both physically and mentally and
being deliberately denied sufficient basics of life?
Of course it wouldn't be different. We would be doing all we could to get revenge on those we saw as responsible and take any steps to make it cease,
and to remove the menace from our door.
Only this week, has it come to light that a Mossad agent procured false British passports, in the names of British Jews, to carry out yet another act
of terrorism, by means of assassination of an Hamas leader...a democratically elected leader no less.
What was the punishment for this crime of aiding terrorism and falsifying British passports? Expulsion. That's it...sent home, no official inquiry,
no criminal prosecution, just asked to leave. To add insult to injury, Israel is already sending another 'diplomat' to replace the expelled one.
All of this on top of the fact that recently a prominent Israeli military strategist, has openly said that Israel actively targets European cities
with weapons of mass destruction! What kind of country targets long term allies with weapons of mass destruction and spells out, in NO uncertain
terms, that is Israel looks like it is going to be overrun, or invaded it WILL take the rest of the world down along with it!
We went to war with Iraq, have killed upwards of 1.5 million men, women and children based on the SUSPICION the possessing weapons of mass
destruction, let alone openly stating they have targeted our cities!
I'm ashamed to say that i hadn't really looked at Israel with a particularly critical eye previously in my life, and even now, i'm sure i've
barley scratched the surface of what goes on there, but the more one looks at it, the more one realises just what an absolute danger to world Israel
has become, and not only it's local neighbours.
It's a real shame on all of us, for allowing this to continue without severe sanctions at the very least.
