Israel, the free pass for violence

Updated on November 20, 2011

Will Israel use nuclear weapons against Iran?

“I can’t stand him any more, he’s a liar,” “You may be sick of him – but me, I have to deal with him every day,”. Who doesn't remember those lines that utter loudly what everybody thinks in a whisper? The exchange became, last week, a classic in the annals of international relationships and, probably set fire to the powder behind closed doors. The blunder, if you will, is a lapsus of the actual plight of a consummated threesome. The protagonists, nobody but big sizes of the macro-influential circles (respectively president Sarkozy and president Obama) complaining about a harassing and possessive mistress. You wished!
The third party referred at the center of the panegyrical diatribe is prime minister Netanyahu. Finally, the truth behind their diplomatic smiles!

Since the massacres of Sabra and Shatila in Lebanon implicating Israel, the Jewish state couldn't pervert anymore worldwide public opinions on its will and objective, and couldn't conceal behind the eternal victimized PR campaign image, its real face as an aggressor and potential enemy to any country sympathizing with its "dangerous" neighborhood (triggered by the annexations and numerous spoliation of lands through unlawful settlements).

Its role as the cleaner of the Middle-East until now is supported by the U.S. that sees in the gesture, the opportunity and means to have a firsthand information of the situation in the Middle-East. Every Arab country in the region friend with the U.S. is another strategic position, another military base added to the U.S. portfolio.

If ever a country has to be pointed a finger at, Israel is the best candidate. Can you explain me why after all the barbarities carried out nobody reproves it or bring them to the International Court of Justice in the Hague? Leaders such as Jean-Paul Akayesu, Jean Kambanda, Slobodan Milosevic, Radovan Karadvic, Radko Mladic for instance were judged and punished for genocides and war crimes respectively by the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Tribunal whereas Israel can impose blockades, uses non-conventional weapons against civilians, violates former settlement agreements, attacks a Turkish flotilla on international waters, vetoes Palestine recognition as a state, accuses Iran to foment a nuclear attack based upon no evidence... To name a few... And to get away with it. Can anyone advance a logical explanation as for its unadmonished bellicose comportment or the non utilization of the embargo as a dissuasive weapon against Israel? The more probable weight of the U.S. in those juridical instances? Or important U.S. interests to preserve?

Each time the prime minister appears on the small screen (he deserves the oscar for his leading drama queen role), it is in order to cry upon their iniquitous predicament (as if we, critical thinkers, lacked sight and objectivity!). Yesterday's victims (World War 2) are still weeping for no reason. This said, haven't you noticed that Hollywood seizes the first occasion to keep going over the Jewish suffering as if they were the only ones, what about the Birmans, the Kurds, the Armenians, the South Africans, the Algerians, the Khmers...? I guess we can't locate them on a world map, can we? And the Germans don't deserve yet forgiveness! It is a joke! For a people that suffered, history did not teach them a lesson, did it? So please, don't patronize us! Let's talk figures now!

For a country that advertises and prioritizes peace, it devoted NIS 53.2 billion to its defence department in 2010, an equivalent of 15.1% of its overall budget. In 2007, it concentrated its investments in U.S. fighter aircrafts (262 units), in missiles (superior to a thousand units, -many are not divulged...). It explains the U.S. involvement and support. It is also a supplier, India is among its last clients. For a pacifist, it declared war sixteen times since 1948 (the last one ended, "officially", with the Gaza War). To finish, it developed and possesses the nuclear weapon on the sly... And so, and so, and so... In spite of their efforts to polish their image I hardly can't associate them to the Vatican City, the Liechtenstein or Andorra in that effect.

Israel depends on the well-being of its backbone, its military-industrial complex to survive as an economy and uses its neighbors as platforms to display its sophisticated defence and technology of protection. Since it is oil tributary, it has to stick to mommy America. Since the oil peak has been reached (Saudi Arabia's decision to limit then stop its exportation confirms the tendency), more wars will be waged to acquire the resource. And then... What will become of Israel when oil will disappear from the Middle-East or elsewhere? Will the F-22 Raptor rush to the rescue without fuel or will the person in charge deliberate first? Being surrounded by Arab countries that suffered from its violations, what will occur then? Will America be at its sides? I'll let you be the judge.

With such a hypocrite and cry baby, I understand both disdaining presidential reactions. Their contempt also exposes that contrary to the appearances given the international players that they are, are not dupe with the Israeli game. As for the international community, it reassesses what we long ago thought that Israel represents a danger especially if it concretizes its desire to assault Iran. It always claimed its militarization for protection purposes, the whole world is witnessing the opposite.

      We will see if Netanyahu will be reelected or not. The result will tell the world what the majority is thinking. I personally think that, only a minority disagrees with Netanyahu's conception of the middle east.

      To ban nukes in a time where America will point future nuclear weapons towards China, Russia seems improbable. Since the beginning I am for Iran to possess the nuclear weapon to balance the disequilibrium in the middle east. We fear Iran but we forget that we were the ones who used it against civilians.

      That is why it must be dealt with by covert means. And I happen to believe that many in gvt and alphabet agencies have had enough--as well as many Israeli's.

      They must feel as I did in 2004.

      Nothing surprising there. It would surprise me if the ICC ruled in favor of Palestine given that it is a UN tool. A real nazi state! It wanted reparations from the nazis but refuses to do so when she is pointed a finger at. It only shows the degree of dictatorship installed already. Law doesn't prevail. It is a government of criminals!

      "With Palestine now able to seek redress for war crimes by Israel in the International Criminal Court at The Hague, Israel is seeking to silence all dissent, Palestinian and otherwise, that would aid in their prosecution."

      No, we are not sheep....I've heard that we are regarded higher than Angels!

      We just allow the bs because we are brow-beaten into it.--by other people, of all things.

      We can "stand together and move forward wisely with caution, or join “THE OTHERS.” The Evil ones. It is either one or “THE OTHER.” You decide which side you’re on.

      If you are HUMAN, you should have a natural deep instinct and MORAL CONSCIOUS to be able to distinguish between the two. Set aside all of the loud noises, the fuzzy energy, and all of the daily, minute distractions in life, and The Truth Shall Set You Free!"

      Anyone who is going to stand with Netanyahu has lost their moral compass. imo

      And I could say a lot about mine, too--with Obama.

      Killing, torture, fear, horror, little kids wetting their pants in terror......this is not how we are meant to behave.

      It is not human.....it is something else. And it needs to be removed from the atmosphere.

      If our incompetent governments learnt nothing from history, we should give them a lesson. On another hand, the people could have withdrawn their money from faulty banks (the financial crisis) and we did nothing. Are we already sheep?

      There are many "situations", in the world, caused by "the major powers", both past and present. They always seem to think they know what is best for a region. Displacing people, planting people, destroying the local flora and fauna, generally wrecking the place.

      Its funny how support is based off these mistakes and even though "the major powers", are in fact in control, they continue to make the same mistakes going forward.

      Apparently you did not understand the content of my text. It is a critique of Israel. I referred to the crusades only to show that only two religions care about Jerusalem and fought for it. They were Islam and Christianity refuting parallelly any entitlement to Israel to pretend to Palestine.

      Exactly same analogy. People criticized America not because they hate it, but they see America sinking under lower standards. Before it symbolized Freedom, not anymore.

      As you rightly said it a new force is sweeping the world...

      Haha, yeah, they are called "self-hating".....what a crock.

      Same way as they say "you hate America", if you question the people in power here......oh, scratch that. USED to be called America-Haters, NOW they call themselves "Patriots", lol.

      It's ok, there's a new force sweeping the world, and it's called Justice. Let the chips fall where they may.

      And when you speak the truth, people target you as biased. I won't play their games, I am objective and realistic. Most people who disagree as Jewish people that is to say the less inclined to objectivity.

      Actually, from what I read, there are huge protests going on there too. I also read that most people think Bibi has lost his mind. And my fav's are the Rabbi's who say Zionism is destroying Israel....not to mention Palestine, and is not in alignment with their faith. It's incredible to me that they have been allowed to get away with so much.....incredible. And our gvt is in their pocket.

      Nothing in what I stated in my articles comes from my imagination. Everything I wrote is factual mp2525.

      I agree Chris! I just don't understand what people see or retain from daily news, books... Most of people are biased when they refer to Israel, I am not, I am neither Israeli nor Palestinian. But Israelis have to face the reality.

      Your article is considerably biased, and it is filled with statements that are at best factually distorted. I recommend that you watch the "You Tube" video comments of Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of one of the Palestinian leaders of Hamas.

      It will be noteworthy to discover whether you have the integrity to approve my message, which presents a point of view different than your own.

      I've never said that the Jewish community got what they deserved during WW2. I just said that they did not get a lesson from the past since they are repeating the barbarity. Why would we get the lesson for you? It is in the interest of Israel that a war context is perpetrated (but I don't ask common minds to understand complicated matters!).

      And by the way do you live in Israel, no therefore your approach of reality is distorted. I've been there. And know how segregative and discriminatory the people I met were.

      What about imagining the life of a typical Palestinian family submitted to blockades, curfews, limited geographically...

      As for my knowledge, it doesn't come from the "Arabs" as you said it, to demarcate them, but from books, newspapers, tv...

      So far this paper is about Israel why would I refer to Syria.

      I don't know whether you really believe in all the lies the Arabs spread (they had their lesson from the "master" Nazi propaganda minister Gebles himself) or whether you are yourself a propaganda agent.

      I would advice you to learn the historical facts and imagine yourself in the situation of an Israeli citizen whose country is attacked daily by rockets.

      Why don't you at least condemn the brutality of Arabs against Arabs, like what is happening now in Syria?

      If it is.....then the whole world is insane.

      Good analysis.

      The same foreign policy establishment hawks who helped talk us into invading Iraq are saying something must urgently be done about Iran's alleged nuclear weapons development.
