If these phosphorus munitions had been dropped on Jews anywhere in the world, Jews would have called for the extinction of the attacker, but not for Israel

[ Editor’s Note: There will never be a two-state agreement that the Palestinians can accept, without a lot of US pressure being put on Israel to do it, which their Intelligence and blackmail operations over decades here makes sure would never happen.

This “interfering in our internal affairs” has never been opposed by our political class. No political, military, or security official has ever stood up and called for Israeli Intel networks to be torn down and for all Americans who have assisted them, including the Jewish Americans, being prosecuted for their acts.

In a way, until that happens, we are all Palestinians. Don’t expect any pity from the Israelis. They figure any people willing to accept this being done to them without a fight deserves to be “occupied”, not worthy of being free in any real sense.

For Israelis, this is called a negotiation

– First published … February 22, 2018

Former US president Jimmy Carter has warned about the “catastrophic” consequences of abandoning the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The two-state solution “is being overtaken by a one-state reality which will have dire consequences for Israel in the long-term,” Carter said in a statement to the United Nations Security Council read on Thursday by former US ambassador Richard Murphy.

Referring to President Donald Trump’s decision in December to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds  as the capital of Israel, Carter in the statement read by Murphy insisted that the two-state solution “must be anchored on 1967 borders with agreed upon adjustments and with Jerusalem [al-Quds] as the capital for both Israelis and Palestinians.”

Carter’s statement came after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas accused the Trump administration of abdicating its commitment to a peace settlement and an independent Palestinian state.

In an angry address to the UN Security Counci on Tuesday, Abbas hinted that Washington under Trump was by no length of imagination an honest peace broker in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

He appealed instead to the United Nations, and called for an international peace conference this year under U.N., not American, sponsorship.

“We met with the president of the United States, Mr. Donald Trump, four times in 2017, and we have expressed our absolute readiness to reach a historic agreement,” Abbas said.

“Yet this administration has not clarified its position,” Abbas said. “Is it a two-state solution, or one state?” he asked.  

Carter’s advice to Trump

Carter warned in the statement of mounting tensions in Israeli occupied Palestinian territories since Trump took office. The occupied territory “is teetering on the brink of a humanitarian disaster”, Murphy read from Cater’s statement to the UN Security Council.

The former president warned that another war in the Hamas-controlled territory of the Gaza Strip is “a real possibility — and the consequences would be catastrophic.”

The Israeli regime’s military frequently bombs Gaza, with civilians being the main target of such attacks.

Israel has launched several wars on the Palestinian coastal sliver, the last of which began in early July 2014. The military aggression, which ended on August 26, 2014, killed nearly 2,200 Palestinians. Over 11,100 others were also wounded in the war.

The Gaza Strip has been under an Israeli siege since June 2007. The blockade has caused a decline in the standards of living as well as unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty.

 The Israeli regime denies about 1.8 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs with proper wages as well as adequate healthcare and education.

 

Carter then went on to conclude his statement by advising Tel Aviv’s regime and its US supporters that the establishment of an independent Palestinian state “is in Israel’s best interest.”

    It’s our responsibility to see than religious instruction is kept out of public schools.
    Either that or just home school your children. They’re better off anyway. Public education is nothing more than government run brainwashing and indoctrination

    Actually the situation is that You can’t Teach Your House’s Values at School and Then the sort of Commercial narratives and Default Values will be grilled into Your offspring in the Public Education System , in Montreal School Teachers have Even advised Pakistani Quebecois teens to run away from home and get married or whatever , weird shit but it happened between 2000 & 2008 while I lived in Montreal .

  2. I’ve been to Israel facinating place ..
    Very hard to understand as there’s intensity in every direction.
    Don’t want to be the one to say it.
    But the temple will probably be rebuilt one day ?
    U S policy encouraging it so far .
    Isn’t that what the good book says

    • The book says, everything conceivably advantageous to the interpreters. It is a crop circle.
      Any geopolitical activity based on it, is of convenience, and is self fulfilling prophecy. Lunacy.

  3. Let’s face it, the U.N. is a total joke. Either it must begin to enforce international laws on every law breaking nation or do the world a favor and end its existence. The longer one waits to stand up to bullies like the U.S. and Israel the worse it gets. An international occupying force must be sent in to Israel and destroy all illegal buildings, and move the borders back to their legal locations and remove all weapons including nuclear ones. Otherwise abolish the UN and let these ignorant nations fight it out in the streets like the street criminals they are. An eye for an eye is evidently the only kind of language either criminal nations U.S. or Israel understand.

  4. The deal appears to be Jerusalem for the Jews, and North Korea for the Evangelicals.

    I believe it has to be accepted, that we have devolved into a religious extremist state, bent on imposing extreme religious beliefs on our own people, and the world by force. These entities are favored above all other entities, and nothing they do is taxed or regulated. Even the slaughter of children.
    If we keep going, our school children will read the Bible as fact while the teacher paces with a Glock.
