According to POLITICO, in an article published on September 30, 2013, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said they would have to invent Israel if it did not already exist, as President Barack Obama met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House.
More specifically he declared the following.
“If there were not an Israel, we would have to invent one to make sure our ‘interests’ were preserved…”
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said this as he and President Barack Obama met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House.
This brazenly, interventionist, hegemonic, perfidious truth is proof that when it comes to the criminally reckless slow-motion expulsions, land confiscations, targeted assassinations, tortures, and genocidal massacres of the autochthonous people of Palestine in their own land for the last 75 years, corrupt politicians, and the corrupted corporate mainstream media have lied to the American public and have aided and abetted the racist Zionist power structures of political Israel.
While another Zionist-Netanyahu et al. horrific genocidal massacre has taken place for the last few days, the same hypocritically and cynical memes on steroids are repeated about “Israel having the ‘right’ to defend itself“ when in reality it has provocatively offended Palestine all along since it forced the expulsion of some 750,000 Palestinian in 1948, followed by all of the supra noted scandalous war crimes and crimes against humanity.
This time Netanyahu is desperate because he is about to lose his PM position and hence he will lose his immunity to being indicted and arrested as a result of three serious crimes against the state of Israel for which he will be tried and sentenced. The crimes are Bribery, Fraud, and Breach of Trust.
This time a potential quantum leap forward must be taken, since the prestigious Israeli human rights organization “B’Tselem” has just classified Israel as a full-fledged pariah “Apartheid State“, a move which was immediately enforced by the equally prestigious Human Rights Watch organization.
Any politician who continues to cover up the truth about the 75 years of the real political Israel’s, and its AIPAC lobby’s, lies, must be held accountable.
President Biden must rise to the occasion and order immediately Israel to end this one of so many massacres of men, women, and children, and order it to stop using the military hardware made in the USA and immediately end the obscene payment of “the US $10 million dollars per day” ( of our taxpayer’s funds) to this now officially supremacist racist Zionist Apartheid Israel and accept the truce that even Hammas proposed AFTER the settler colonialists invaded the Al Aqsa Mosque and started attacking its peaceful worshipers while all along bands of settler colonialists were trying to invade and take over the residences of innocent Palestinians in East Jerusalem.
See the infra video of the first Palestinian American Congresswoman, namely D-Rep. Rashida Tlaib blasting the U.S.-enabled Zionist Apartheid Israel attack on Gaza in a dramatic and moving House Floor Speech.
Additionally, watch the educational video presentation by Hanan Ashrawi, who is a Christian Palestinian diplomat and scholar and former member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).
BTW, here is a comment by Hanan Ashrawi:
“And then you get people like Biden and others say Israel has the right to self-defense. I will repeat something I’ve said and I continue to say: There is no normalcy under occupation. This is an abnormal situation. And an occupier who’s oppressing a whole people cannot claim self-defense if its victims decide to strike back even in a minimal way. The real issue is the occupation.”
And also educational is the infra video presentation by Rashid Khalidi who is a Palestinian Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Columbia University.
Both presentations appear on the same infra video.
The Israeli Zionist political leaders are committing genocide by deliberately targeting and killing Palestinian civilians in their homes. The destruction of civilian buildings, infrastructure, and schools is not “collateral damage” as it is being done with full intention, forethought and planning. And I have to note that the Palestinian rocket fire is not only miniscule in the amount of explosives delivered compared to thousands of tons of high explosives dropped on Gaza, but in addition, unlike the Palestinians, Israel has effective defense ability against these ‘home-made’ rockets while Palestinians are completely defenseless against attacks by Israeli Airforce, Navy, Artillery, and Tanks. Hence there is no ‘moral’ or immoral equivalence between the two parties and their actions. Israel is clearly on the wrong side of morality.
Dear reader Aura Syed. Thank you so much for this extraordinarily excellent and comprehensive comment!
Exactly, and International Law supports the right of the Palestinians to protect themselves. “Under international law, the Palestinians have a lawful right to resist Israel’s occupation of their lands, including through armed struggle.” Marjorie Cohn https://truthout.org/articles/as-an-occupier-israel-isnt-entitled-to-self-defense-under-international-law/
Self-defense cannot be an acceptable description of this terrible situation: except if it’s cited by the oppressed. Palestinians have suffered long enough.
