…by Stuart Littlewood, Britain

Keen as I am to see justice done for the Palestinians I’ve lately become less interested. This is because, for decades, they’ve allowed their rulers to make fools of them. The endless Fatah-Hamas rivalry is eagerly exploited by their enemies Israel, the US, and the UK – the ‘axis of evil’ – and provides them a convenient reason for blocking independence.

It’s a sad thing when people who have been savagely oppressed and illegally occupied for 70+ years, and who have all legal and moral rights on their side, cannot unite and speak with a single authoritative voice.

What is even more depressing is the way a criminal pursuit, Zionism, which terrorizes the Holy Land, has the West by the balls terrified to act.

But the other day I was jolted out of my snooze by another great article from Israeli insider, Miko Peled: ‘Yes, Biden and Harris Are Self-Declared Zionists, But a Glimmer of Hope Remains’.

He reminds us that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris both brag about being Zionists and most American politicians are infected too, but Trump’s removal from the White House “presents a sense of a new beginning and should be used as an opportunity to change the paradigm on Palestine”.

How come? Because although the politicians might not get it, it’s plain to everyone else (except evangelicals) that Israel is a dangerous, reckless, apartheid state and supporting it only promises instability.

“Furthermore, the Netanyahu government is tightly connected to Trump. In fact, one could argue that Trump’s entire foreign policy regarding the Middle East and Iran were dictated by Netanyahu.”

American Right-Wing So-Called Christians March for Israel hoping for the Rapture!

Louder voices, please

Peled believes Americans are at last “growing weary of the US arming and financing Zionist ambitions” and beginning to see that Israel not only violates international law and human rights but is itself a violation of those laws and rights.

“Every day that Palestinian refugees languish in camps is a violation of human decency as well as international law…. the fact that the homes, land, and property of these refugees were stolen by Israel after they were forced to flee by armed Zionist terror squads – that is an ongoing violation of international law. Each day that Palestinians in Gaza remain locked up in the world’s largest open-air prison is a violation of international law and the human rights of the over two million people who live in the Gaza Strip…. No one can be progressive while supporting Israel.”

Israel has armed itself with the weapon of anti-semitism, and the IHRA definition of antisemitism foolishly accepted by governments and non-governmental organizations has created a shield that protects Israel from criticism.

But, says Peled, “when the facts are laid out clearly, even the weaponization of anti-semitism cannot protect Israel.

“There is a change in the air in the United States and although the Biden-Harris duo has declared themselves Zionists, there is an opportunity to push forward an aggressive pro-Palestine, pro-justice agenda…. Biden and Harris may be supporters of Zionism today, but that can change. It is the duty of those who care for Palestine to make their voices heard now louder than ever before”

If this was being done to Jewish children anywhere there would be world outrage and calls for sanctions, but not for Palestinian kids.

When I interviewed Miko two years ago he was saying:

“The US, and particularly the current administration, accepts that Israel has swallowed all of Mandatory Palestine and there is no room for non-Jews in that country.” European politicians on the other hand “want to appease Israel and accept it as it is. Their constituents, however, demand justice for the Palestinians so, as an act of cowardly compromise, the EU countries in true post-colonial fashion treat the Palestinian Authority as though it was a Palestinian state…. even though there is no such state.

“They do it in order to appease their constituents without actually doing anything to further the cause of justice in Palestine. These recognitions have helped not one Palestinian, they have not freed a single prisoner from an Israeli prison, they have not saved a single child from bombings in Gaza, they have not alleviated the suffering and deprivation of Palestinians in the Naqab desert or in the refugee camps. It is an empty, cowardly gesture.”

What the Europeans ought to do, he says, is adopt BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions). “They should recognize that Palestine is occupied, that Palestinians are living under an apartheid regime in their own land, they are victims of ethnic cleansing and genocide and that this must stop, and the Zionist occupation must end completely and without conditions.”

Miko back then wanted the expulsion of Israeli diplomats and Israel to be totally isolated.

“There is too much tolerance for those who promote Zionism and promote Israel…. Elected officials need to be forced to accept BDS entirely. The Palestine solidarity groups need to move from solidarity to full resistance, and BDS is the perfect form of resistance available. Using the tools we have, like BDS, is crucial.”

He felt the passing of the Israeli Nation-State Law was an opportunity to bring together the refugees, the West Bank and Gaza, and demand equal rights. And to insist that the Zionist regime which has been terrorizing Palestine for seven decades be replaced by a free and democratic Palestine. “This opportunity will hopefully be seized.”

Unfortunately, it wasn’t.

And BDS hasn’t been adopted by the UK Parliament because it is stuffed with Zionist stooges from the Prime Mister and the Leader of the Opposition down.

The Government itself vehemently opposes BDS and seeks to criminalize any organization or public body that supports it, while happily rewarding Israel for every vile crime it commits. The UK’s corridors of power need disinfecting just as badly as America’s.

Meanwhile, the Palestinians remain their own worst enemy, giving their quisling rulers a free ride. And their ambassador in London is quiet as a mouse.`

  1. Mind control neuro-hormonals, nanomimic aerosols play a big part in maintaining ” control” setting one group or even between family members. It is used to generate income in the americas quite freely. Having the upper ground, knowing wind conditions anemometers, it no doubt is used to control the populace of zionist desired land, belonging to original Palestinian populace.

  2. In 1935, Newspapers declared that “Israel declares war on Germany”. The state of Israel did’nt come into existence for another 10 years. Israel is an international govt. A Jewish World Federation of Nations. Getting rid of the USA cow host will solve absolutely nothing as the system is an interlocking Hydra.

  3. “The endless Fatah-Hamas rivalry is eagerly exploited by their enemies Israel, the US, and the UK – the ‘axis of evil’ – and provides them a convenient reason for blocking independence” … lol, who do you think created the rift between the two ?!
    Let me guess, you’re one of those who shouts that Muslims have been fighting each other since 3000BC …

    Another political expert who can’t smell the money.

  4. US has been the “experimental” country for the Zionist’s NWO. A fattened Cow (Trump is a good example), nurtured to become the tool to make NWO possible. Biden / Kamala will only do what they’re told, just like the others. The only way to cure this disease – since US is completely overtaken and lacks the means to save itself – is to kill the Cow! Once US falls this parasite will die too.

  5. U.S.A is a gigantic Asylum Country, Police, Politicians and all type of “Judicial Authorities are displaying insanity…From its creation USA has had very turbulent and evil History…What “We” have today is the end result…And if you think that Kommie Kamala will be better…Good luck with that

    • If “Kommie Kamala” will not be better than Trump then why were 65,000 articles published by Israeli firsters after “Hussein Obama” left the White House all saying that he was the enemy of Israel ? Let me tru another way, do you think Trump was ever willing to not veto the resolution 2334 like “Kommie Hussein” did ? or even better who canceled the JCPOA on his first day, was it Kommie Kamala or Rabbi Trump ?

  6. This would be a lot to expect from a nation that has displaced and oppressed Native Americans in the same way that Israel is displacing the Palestinians, stealing their land and resources and committing genocide in the process. Sadly, it isn’t only the crazy Christian Zionists, 50 million of them according to Pastor John Hagee, who stand with Israel and who all voted for Trump. He has turned much of the Republican Party into a personality cult that is in deep denial about his losing the election. Mike Harris is a prime example of this.
