UN and EU: Israel needs to stop stealing Palestinian lands

Doesn’t the United States have an obligation to tell the Israeli regime to stop the settlements?

Did your tax dollars pay for the Israeli settlements?

…by Jonas E. Alexis

 

The UN and the EU have recently declared what we have been trying to say for the past few years: Israel needs to stop grabbing Palestinian lands. The EU’s Federica Mogherini declared that the Israeli settlements “constitute an obstacle to peace and threaten the viability of a two-state solution. (It) would further entrench a one-state reality of unequal rights, perpetual occupation and conflict.”

Britain and France have also joined forces to denounce the Israeli settlements, which have been going on for decades. The United States still remains silent on the current issue. US officials are more interested about demonizing Iran than dealing with serious issues on the ground. Mogherini added:

The EU urges the Israeli leadership to refrain from implementing the law and to avoid measures that further raise tensions and endanger the prospects for a peaceful solution to the conflict.”

The question is simply this: doesn’t the United States have an obligation to tell the Israeli regime to stop the settlements? Once again, if Trump does not address this issue in a cogent matter, his “America First” moto is just a smokescreen. You simply cannot talk about “America First” and fail to address Israel’s covert operation in the Middle East. Perhaps it is pertinent again to bring in Israeli historian Benny Morris. He said:

“A Jewish state would not have come into being without the uprooting of 700,000 Palestinians. Therefore it was necessary to uproot them. There was no choice but to expel that population. It was necessary to cleanse the hinterland and cleanse the border areas and cleanse the main roads. It was necessary to cleanse the villages from which our convoys and our settlements were fired on.”[1]

How would a politician dodge that statement? You simply cannot talk about King Kong without mentioning the monkey. And you cannot talk about “America First” without telling the Israeli regime to stop their perpetual theft. As E. Michael Jones has recently pointed out, Trump’s “America First” is basically the “New Worker’s view of the world,” which is synonymous with the Jewish view of the world, and no decent American voted for that.

    If these bozos were serious they would do something, but of course they don`t so it`s just the same blah, blah, blah as usual. All they do is put on a façade to make people THINK they are against these settlements, when in reality, they are not.

    Since the Balfour agreement, the world has not been the same.It opened the door to mass murder on an unprecedented scale. It continues to this day.
    Since the first Zionist conference, the idea of the state of Israel, created by delusional minds and led on by the zionist elites, proved to be more than just a wet dream, it has become reality and with it the reality of war after war, with millions dead and dying and the zionist elites reaping the harvest.
    The time has come to begin reaping the zionists and their elite leaders.

    An ant-Semite is not someone who hates jews, it is some one the zionists hate.

      Careful….you’re being anti-Semitic……….

    apart from the whole world having an “obligation to tell the Israeli regime to stop the settlements” it falls upon the heads of educated “jews” everywhere to get into the front line with their mouths or pay the consequences of silence …….6 “settlers” were shot the other day and they cant find a Palestinian with a gun to blame…..settlers are being armed to the teeth with “gifts ” of the latest weaponry …a plan is afoot and its not coming from the Palestinian side they can no longer frame any blame upon….when they turn on their own “kind”

    LS…

    From the beginning Palestine is stolen land by the Ashkenazi Jews so whatever you do with stolen land is a crime !

      Edward, the same way they stole nearly everything else in the middle east.
      Most of the troubles in Africa and the middle east can be traced back to colonialism by the French, Dutch and British.
      All three are now paying the price of it. Just as the rest of Europe is with its wars on the middle east. The leaders of Europe are nothing more than poodles for the RKM and led a round by the nose by Washington.

      Yep, it is Britain that is the champion of stealing and trading someone else’s land or territory, they have literally considered themselves “meek that shall inherit the earth”. As mr.Duff frequently rightfully so coins the term Mossad-ist, so the UN is the most Commonwealth-ist organization on earth. Imagine if some remote regions of the world team up and decide for themselves that from now on the Buckinghamshire is no longer British it is now their protectorate. That is what happened to Palestine (and almost to Syria recently). Once the Commonwealth ideology dies out which there is little prospect for but once it happens then all the shitfaced northatlantic proponents of the UN-NATO mafia ideology will die out as well. There will remain no Theresa May or mrs.Thatcher eulogies to save that face.

    Quote from Jerusalem Post Friday Feb. 10, 2017
    ““I don’t want to condemn Israel. There is a long history of Israel enduring condemnations and difficulties. I do not want to condemn Israel during my tenure. I understand Israel and respect Israel,” Trump said.

    “I want peace between the Israelis and Palestinians. And more than that, I think that peace will be excellent for Israel,” he said.
    “There might even be a possibility to achieve peace in a way that is larger than the Israeli-Palestinian peace,” said Trump. “I want both sides to behave in a reasonable manner … we could have a good chance of that.”

    Referencing the West Bank, he noted that there was a limited amount of land and that expanding the settlements ate away at the remaining territory.

    “I am not someone who believes that advancing settlements is good for peace. But we are looking at all different kinds of options,” Trump said.

    He underscored his desire to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    “Many people think that it is impossible,” he said. “Many smart people close to me have argued that such agreement can’t be achieved. I don’t agree with them. I think we can reach an agreement and that we need to reach an agreement,” Trump said.

    Trump said that he has always liked Netanyahu and believes he acts in Israel’s best interest and wants peace.

    With regard to the possible relocation of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, he said that he was still studying the matter.

    “It’s not an easy decision,” he said…”

      Observe what a wishy washy Caspar Milktoast statement on this by Trump regarding the trespass on other people’s lands by Israel. Suppose Trump owned this land and they were trespassing without permission. Or suppose this was the parking lot of one of his Trump Hotels where they were illegally building. He would be indignant and using the strongest language against them to end this criminal trespass on his lands wouldn’t he? He would call police. This illustrates his duplicity, his hypocrisy, his two faced approach to this problem, indulging his friend Israel so long as his selfish interests are not at stake. Trump has problems with logic; he has no trouble arguing one way when it suits him and another way when his own Ox is gored. Obviously he is indulging his friend Israel in their massive land grab from Palestine their “neighbor”. With neighbors like this who needs enemies?

    • wjabbe  February 11, 2017 at 12:49 am

      The above article in the Jerusalem Post was also reported in Breitbart yesterday. How could Trump possibly broker a peace agreement between Israel and Palestine if he is so close to one side? Obviously he can’t. This is all propaganda hot air. If anyone sought to steal his land he would likely shoot them personally if there were no help from any authorities as in this long running “Hatfield and McCoy” land dispute. He mentions nothing about the continuing violence due to this land theft but if you believe Israel they have done nothing wrong at all; it is always Palestine who is totally 100% at fault while Israel is 0% at fault! Trump is a liar and con artist and bully. He respects his friends and cronies and disrespects everyone else including judges.

      Edward, You are correct. The U.S. has no moral proclivity. It is run by greedy multinational corporations, Wall St. and of course the RKM. Washington will never condemn israel’s continued theft of Palestinian land.
      The religious right in America have been completely brainwashed. Christian zionism is a plague spread by the likes of every fraud, charlatan and cheap jack carney barker with the word reverend ,minister or pastor in front of their name. Shysters, the lot of them.
      America is no more moral than Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, or Monsanto. Morality for America is to force itself on the rest of the world under the delusion of “democracy”.
      And that’s all it is: delusion.

  7. davor  February 10, 2017 at 11:56 pm

    UN or EU might be spot on this one, but they cannot be treated as serious or intellectually influential among the people precisely because of their repetitive incoherence on moral issues, one day it is Ukraine another Syria and another Palestine and UN and EU never do anything about it, they take sides while at the same time they never challenge the elites that perpetrate these perpetual conflicts. UN is utter disgrace in my eyes, they cannot act moral, judicial and coherent over a discussion on excrement collectors under the East River, let alone on middle east chaos. They just join in with whoever is strongest and most influential and keeping it low profile. And the Pentagon is very close to the UN HQ. That’s what the Israelis do and tens of other nations. Saudis for example are now on a “human rights scholarship” from the UN and they never mentioned Palestinians not once.
