It seems clear to many that Israel was set up by the Obama admin for a diplomatic scandle to further the intrests of the Palestinians aganst the wishes of the Israeli public and the democratic proccess in Israel. Obama has become Israel's dictator. He and is administration are showing a deep rooted animosityand distain for democracy.

International Condemnation of Israel - So What's New?

By C. Hart
The Israeli government is bracing itself for more condemnation from the international community this week, at an upcoming meeting of the Quartet, scheduled for March 19. It's expected that the gathering will become another diplomatic opportunity for international leaders to blast Israel regarding West Bank settlements and Jerusalem building projects. Condemning Israel has now become common place for world leaders, especially those wanting to successfully implement their new policy objectives; and, for those striving to solidify a more influential position in Middle East politics and diplomacy.

After the faux pas on Israel's part during the recent visit of American Vice President Joseph Biden, media headlines, once again, highlighted the glaring divisions between the Jewish State and its main western ally. As Biden was attending a ceremony at Yad Vashem, Israel's Ministry of Interior announced the approval of new construction on 1,600 housing units in a northeast neighborhood of Jerusalem.

The announcement caused an American uproar, because the Palestinians, with the backing of the Arab League, had finally agreed to proximity talks with Israel. The United States had been working on getting the Palestinians and Israelis back to the peace table since American President Barack Obama took office more than a year ago. Failing to witness any progress, U.S. envoy George Mitchell was finally able to see a possible breakthrough on the horizon -- temporary indirect talks, leading to direct talks in a few months' time. Having secured the indirect talks, American leaders were now set to go with their new foreign policy plan, already eagerly putting a fresh timetable on the yet-to-begin proximity talks; not paying attention to continued timetable failures in the past.

But, America's new policy soon unraveled after the brouhaha in Jerusalem during Biden's visit. What followed was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's attempt to recoup his political losses, hoping to regain the trust of U.S. leaders. He's not only being challenged on the diplomatic front, but also from within his own government. A shake-up among his coalition partners is unfolding as left-wing Labor Party members claim they will quit his government by September 2010 if no diplomatic progress has been achieved.  New elections, and a left-leaning Israeli government, would sit well with the Obama Administration.

Meanwhile, the ill-timed northeast Jerusalem housing announcement has resulted in the Palestinians, backed by the Arab League, voicing their original demand of Israel. They are insisting, once again, that Israel meet their pre-condition (no building in the West Bank or Jerusalem), or they won't sit down for proximity talks.  This domino effect has infuriated not only the White House, but also the State Department.  The U.S. has perceived that the Israeli government's announcement weakened America's foreign policy efforts, which were already weakened by Israeli-Palestinian intransigency during Obama's first year in office.

Trying to clean up the diplomatic mess, Netanyahu has offered several apologies to the Obama Administration which have fallen on deaf ears. He has promised that construction on the Jerusalem neighborhood will not start for several years. But, the Americans and the Palestinians are not listening. They want more. This has now become a new opportunity by the U.S. State Department to exert public pressure on Israel to stop building in east Jerusalem, a red line that the current Netanyahu government has been unwilling to cross.

The issue goes much deeper than what appears on the surface.  The State Department has never recognized Jerusalem as Israel's sovereign eternal and undivided capital. This has put the State Department in the Palestinian camp on this issue in a very public way.

What makes matters worse is that Biden came to the Middle East to prove to Israelis just how much the Obama White House cares and is on Israel's side. Obama's public relations effort was meant to emphasize the unique partnership of two democratic allies who have formed a strategic alliance of cooperation in this volatile region. During his visit, Biden stated over and over again, America's unswerving commitment to Israel's security. 

Yet, that commitment apparently does not include protecting Israel's capital and holy sites by respecting and honoring Israel's sovereign historical and biblical right to rule over Jerusalem. America's commitment also, apparently, does not require the U.S. to show concrete confidence-building measures to the Israeli people by moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  Furthermore, in this American commitment, President Obama does not feel it is important to visit the Jewish State after fawning on Arab leaders in several neighboring states since he was elected.

In other words, the White House commitment to Israel is about vital security interests, but not within the framework of building a trusting relationship to help Israel overcome its uncertainty about Obama's true intentions.  Biden's visit made this all the more apparent to Israeli citizens in a way that no Tel Aviv university public relations speech could.

Condemning Israel for building in a neighborhood that, in any case, will remain under Israeli jurisdiction in any future agreement with the Palestinians, shows the deep misunderstandings between the U.S. and Israel over the peace process.

The U.S., once again, is overplaying its hand, appearing to be pro-Palestinian in its policies, acquiescing to Palestinian demands, and hurting peace efforts. This has further jeopardized American's role as an honest peace broker in the Middle East. So, why continue the unrelenting pressure on Israel in such a public way?

Pressuring Israel has become a path, on the part of previous American administrations, toward squeezing out Israeli concessions. Obama is now using this same tactic, but in the public arena for global consumption. Continuing to bring the dispute into the international limelight emboldens other politicians and diplomats to follow suit. This, then, contributes to Obama's efforts at leading and building a comprehensive Middle East peace coalition which will be supported and backed by international bodies respecting international law.

The Palestinians have already successfully used the United Nations as a forum to internationalize their dispute with Israel, resulting in the condemnation of the Jewish State through many UN resolutions. They would like this to continue until the UN imposes stiff sanctions on Israel.

The European Union has also entered the fray. Last week, while the media was busy highlighting Biden's visit to Israel, it almost went unnoticed that the European Parliament announced it had endorsed the Goldstone Report, accusing Israel of alleged war crimes in the 2008-09 Gaza war with Hamas. Meeting in Strasbourg, just over 50% of the Parliament voted to take a stand in favor of the report. Israel's Foreign Ministry was disappointed that the announcement came at a time when Israel and the Palestinians had finally agreed to proximity talks. Furthermore, the un-timely decision of the Parliament members bolstered the visit of EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, who is set to travel to Israel and Gaza, where more condemnation of Israel can be expected.


Moreover, the European Parliament's decision to side with the Goldstone Report highlights the ongoing campaign to de-legitimize Israel, under the false allegation that Israel has violated international human rights laws.  This erodes global public support of Israel through a biased and distorted picture of the Jewish State as an "illegal occupier" and the Palestinians as "innocent victims". 

The Palestinians, working diplomatically to help Hamas in Gaza, have been successful in diverting public attention away from the terrorist activities of the Hamas government. Focusing international attention on condemning Israel has also helped to minimize gross human rights violations on the part of Hamas, especially the use of women and children as human shields during times of war. This is the real violation of international human rights laws, which is virtually being ignored by the international community.

The Palestinians have not only become successful in fighting Israel within the framework of international bodies, but have tried to undermine Israel's ability to self-defense in any future war. This campaign of de-legitimizing Israel has been working well. Anti-Israel hatred and anti-Semitism against Jews in the Diaspora is now more publicly accepted and legitimized through continued international condemnation of Israel. This is occurring, not only through the Goldstone Report, but also through the laws of international jurisdiction, where ordinary citizens can take Israeli leaders to court over alleged war crimes, threatening their arrest upon arrival in certain European nations.

The Dubai attack against a high level Hamas terrorist was blamed on Israel, backed by one eager UAE police commander who twisted the plot to de-legitimize the work of Israel's main security agency. This put the focus on the Mossad instead of on the arch terrorist who had murdered Israelis and smuggled highly sophisticated arms into Gaza.  It also gave international leaders excuses for bashing Israel and bringing the Jewish nation to task for a crime yet to be proven.

When Netanyahu put the Cave of the Patriarch's and Rachel's Tomb on the list of important Israeli heritage sites for refurbishing, America and Europe condemned the move, saying it would not help advance peace efforts with the Palestinians.  Never mind that Israelis see the sites as their biblical and historical roots to the land; and, despite the fact that the Israeli government is willing to give oversight of those holy places to the Palestinians in any future peace agreement.

According to international law expert Irwin Cotler, the recent condemnation by international leaders, claiming that Israeli settlements are "illegal", has further played into the de-legitimization of Israel.  He explains that people can have their opinions that the settlement policy is bad or is wrong-thinking.

"That is very different from saying that Israel is systematically violating international law in its settlement policy. That raises the specter of Israel as being an international outlaw."

So, why is the international community taking a stand against Israel in such a public demonstration of condemnation?  Blaming Israel has become an accepted diplomatic path towards weakening Israel's resolve, and forcing the Jewish State to give up its claim to its land. 

This is a new policy initiative that does not appear to be a formally coordinated and planned effort among nations and international bodies. But, it does help the United States, the UN, the EU, Russia, the Arab League, and the Palestinians to further their goal of imposing a two-state solution on Israel according to the pre-1967 or 1948 borders; one that is set to endanger the vital security interests of the Jewish State. This is the very thing that America has publicly promised Israel it would not do. So far, Israel's main western ally has not convinced Israelis of what its true intentions really are.

The UN has managed to make NO resolutions against any of the agressors. The UN sits silent unless ofcourse a Jew is Building  a house.

Modern usage and examples

This article is in a list format that may be better presented using prose. You can help by converting this article to prose, if appropriate. Editing help is available. (September 2009)

Diverse ethnic groups have suffered from similar targeted riots at various times and in different countries.

In the view of some historians,[32] the mass violence and murder targeting Black people during the New York Draft Riots of 1863 can be defined as pogroms, though the word had not yet entered the English language at the time. The term "pogrom" is commonly used in the general context of riots against various ethnic groups.[citation needed]

Other examples are:

The 1955 Istanbul Pogrom
One million Armenians fled Turkey between 1915-1923 to escape pogroms.
  • Sikhs have also experienced a pogrom in India, most notably those occurring in November 1984 when India's Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by two of her Sikh guards acting in the aftermath of Operation Bluestar. In these 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots, Sikhs were killed in pogroms led by government loyalists, with the government allegedly aiding the attacks by furnishing the mobs with voting lists to identify Sikh families.[48] The current Congress party leader, Sonia Gandhi, officially apologized to the Sikh community in 1988 for the pogrom and began reconciliation efforts, as well as efforts to provide justice for the victims, the most notable being the Nanavati commission.
  • In Sri Lanka in 1983, state sponsored anti-Tamil riots killed as many as 3,000 people, mainly in the capital city of Colombo, and helped trigger the 30 year civil war. More than 300,000 people, mostly Tamils, were displaced. Seeking a safe haven, hundreds of thousands of Tamils sought refuge in South India and western countries.
  • Over 500,000 Hindus, belonging to a community called Kashmiri Pandits, have also experienced a pogrom in the Indian occupied territory of Jammu and Kashmir when they were systematically targeted by the separatist militants and driven out of the Kashmir Valley in 1989. They continue to live as internally displaced persons in transit camps in southern Hindu-majority portion of the state as well as in other parts of India, in spite of sporadic efforts to rehabilitate them.
  • Acts of ethnic and religious violence in India,[49] such as the following tend to occur as the root causes of violence often run deep in history, religious activities, economic imbalance and politics of India.[50][51]:
  • In 1989, after bloody pogroms against the Meskhetian Turks by Uzbeks in Central Asia's Ferghana Valley, nearly 90,000 Meskhetian Turks left Uzbekistan.[53][54]
  • In the summer of 1990 an anti-Russian rioting engulfed Tuva's urban areas, leaving scores dead. Thousands of ethnic Russians reportedly fled Tuva in the wake of the 1990 ethnic disturbances.[55][56]#
  • Pogrom of Armenians in Baku in January 1990 forced almost all of the 200,000 Armenians in Baku to flee to Armenia.[57]
  • In Egypt, the rise in extremist Islamist groups such as the Gama'at Islamiya during the 1980s was accompanied by attacks on Copts and on Coptic churches; these have since declined with the decline of those organizations, but still continue.[58] The police have been accused of siding with the attackers in some of these cases.[59]
  • During the "Troubles" in Northern Ireland, a disputed territory within the United Kingdom, many pogroms took place. The most violent have taken place in the city of Belfast when unionist rioters attacked the small Nationalist housing estate known as the Short Strand (Irish: An Trá Ghearr). Three unionists and one nationalist were killed by gunfire here, on the 27th of June 1970 during the "Battle of St. Mathews".
  • In 1999, after NATO troops took control of the Serbian province of Kosovo, the non-Albanian population, including all Jews, Christians and Muslims of non-Albanian ethnicity, of the capital Pristina was driven from their homes by ethnic Albanians and their property sacked and demolished, while NATO forces stood back and refused to intervene.[60][61]
  • On 17 October 1999, at approximately 12:00 noon, members of the radical Basilist sect, led by Basili Mkalavishvili, an excommunicated Georgian Orthodox Church priest, interrupted the Christian meeting of a congregation of 120 Jehovah's Witnesses held in the "Giza" building, in Tbilisi-Gldani and viciously attacked many of the individuals who were in attendance. Men, women and children were physically attacked.[62] Since 1999 to 2003 there were over 100 attacks and related incidents in Georgia. The houses of some Jehovah's Witnesses were burned. The victims have filed more than 800 criminal complaints.[63]
  • In November 2004, Chinese authorities have admitted that inter-ethnic rioting gripped part of central Henan province. Henan's riots are said to have started with a traffic accident, and escalated with Hui and Han Chinese gangs attacking and burning villages of the opposing community.[64]
  • In November 2004, several thousand of the estimated 14,000 French nationals in Ivory Coast left the country after days of anti-white violence.[65]
  • In 2006, rioters damaged shops owned by Chinese-Tongans in Nukuʻalofa.[66] Chinese migrants were evacuated from the riot-torn Solomon Islands.[67]
  • In 2007, ethnic Kurds in South Kazakhstan suffered arson attacks which continued for three days.[68][69]
  • In May 2008, there were pogroms against migrants across South Africa that left almost 100 people dead and up to 100,000 displaced.[70]
  • Although Iraqi Christians represent less than 5% of the total Iraqi population, they make up 40% of the Iraqi refugees now living in nearby countries, according to UNHCR.[74][75] Massacres, ethnic cleansing, and harassment has increased since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.[76] Furthermore, the Mandaean and Yazidi communities are at the risk of elimination due to the ongoing atrocities by Islamic extremists.[77][78]
  • The 2009 Gojra riots were anti-Christian pogroms that erupted in Gojra, Pakistan, in 2009 where Muslim mobs slaughtered eight Christians over Pakistan's theocratic practices of blasphemy laws.

Though I find this writter rather a little too rightwing at times for my tastes, he does bring up many good points. Food for thought.

 

 

Arab League and PA are Real Apartheid Entities!

Countering Israel Apartheid Week folly

In 1948, the Arab League of Nations applied the Apartheid model to Palestine, and declared that Jews must be denied rights as citizens of Israel, while declaring a total state of war to eradicate the new Jewish entity, a war that continues today.

In 1948, at the directive of the Arab League of Nations, Jordan devastated the vestiges of Jewish life from Judea and Samaria, and burned all synagogues in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem.

In 1948, member states of the Arab League of Nations began to strip the human rights of Jews and to expel entire Jewish communities who had resided in their midst for centuries. And since its inception in 1994, the newly constituted Palestinian Authority, created by the PLO, has prepared the rudiments of a Palestinian State, modelled on the rules of Apartheid and institutionalized discrimination:

1. The right of Palestinian Arab refugees and their descendents to return to Arab villages lost in 1948 will be protected by the new Palestinian state. (Jewish refugees are not allowed to return to Gaza and other Arab controlled lands)

2. While 20% of Israel's citizens are Arabs, not one Jew will be allowed to live in proposed Palestinian State.

3. Anyone who sells land to a Jew will be liable to the death penalty in the Palestinian State. (This law is already enforced by the PA)

4. Those who murder Jews are honored on all official Palestinian media outlets (and by ruling officials, like Abbas).

5. PA maps prepared for the Palestinian State depict all of Palestine (including Israel ) under Palestinian rule.

6. PA maps of Jerusalem for the Palestinian State once again delete the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem.

7. Recent PA documents claim all of Jerusalem for the future Palestinian State.

8. The right of Jewish access to Jewish holy places is to be denied in the new Palestinian State.

9. The Draft Palestinian State Constitution denies juridical status to any religion except for Islam. (In the West Bank under Jordan, since 1948 till 1967, the practice of Judaism and Christianity was 'only' restricted)

10. No system which protects human rights or civil liberties will exist in a Palestinian State. (Since the Oslo Accord was signed, the PA has shown its complete disregard for the human rights of individuals, political groups and religious minorities)

If that is not a formula for a totalitarian apartheid state of Palestine, then what is?

Have You Heard about it? Violent clashes between Muslims and Christians near Nigeria 's city of Jos left more than 200 dead in a nearby village.

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

Not long ago, the United Kingdom vigorously and murderously fought against the independence of Ireland; the United States occupied and annexed the South East of north America and later Hawaii. But Jews are not allowed to end Arab occupation and take control over Jewish ancestral land!

Useless Talks Approved by the Arab League. The Arab League has approved "indirect negotiations" between the PA and Israel. The League limited the talks to a preliminary four-month period. The US will broker and make sure the indirectness of the talks. Up until now, Abbas has refused any discussion with the Jewish state. (Why must the talks between two parties be approved by political masters who created the conflict in the first place? It is in their interest to maintain the status quo. "Indirect negotiation" is the display of disrespect by Arabs toward Israel. Must we negotiate with bigots?)

Another Embarrassment for Obama Administration. Syrian President Bashar Assad sat down with Ahmadinejad and Nasrallah for dinner in Damascus last Thursday night, just one day after United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called on Syria to distance itself from Iran. The trio of terror-hungry Muslim leaders denounced Israel and America and discussed ways to aid 'resistance groups'. (No hard feelings - it is just another humiliation the US has received from a Muslim country!)

Peaceful Nuclear Program? Ayatollah Yazdi, spiritual teacher of Iran' s dictator Mahmoud Ahmedinajad, says the acquisition of nuclear weapons is a religious obligation. Just ten days ago, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the opposite: "Our religious beliefs are against the use of (nuclear) weapons. We in no way believe in an atomic weapon and do not seek one." (They are inventing 'religious' justifications to disguise their murderous agenda!)

Quote of the Week: "...in Egypt more than 17 TV channels every day promoting the Wahabi ideas, and this way of understanding the religion is very exclusive in the sense that they are against anybody who is different. They are against Shia, people of Iran. They are against even Muslims who are for democracy, like myself, accusing me of being secular, against the religion. They are against Jews, of course. They are against Christians (especially Egypt's Coptics). They are against everybody who is not with them." - Muslim author and democracy activist Alaa Al Aswany - He also said that beginning in the 1970s there has been a steady rise in the Wahabi brand of religious interpretation of Islam, imported and financed from Saudi Arabia. This is what Saudi Arabia has been doing all over the Islamic world with the silent blessing of its best friend, the United States !

Israel Should Protest Against any Construction in Manhattan . The United States criticized Israel for authorizing the construction of 600 more housing units in the north Jerusalem neighbourhood of Pisgat Ze'ev: "We've relayed our strong concerns to the government of Israel, that this kind of activity" (After all, most land of the United States was forcibly taken from native Indian tribes - in contrast, Israel is building the Jewish state on the land of our ancestors!)

Fatah is Increasing Terrorist Activity. The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade terror group belonging to the Fatah, which in turn is a member of the PLO which controls the PA, claimed responsibility for the drive by shooting on Highway 443 last week. (The terrorist organization Fatah has never renounced terror against Israel, but lately it has increased the number of direct terrorism acts in order to compete with Hamas!)

No International Condemnation of Israeli Government? For the third time in a month, Israel's security forces have destroyed a synagogue in the Samaria town of Nachliel. Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Labor, has sent forces in the middle of the night to destroy a shack used as a synagogue (What would have happened if it was a Mosque or Church?)

Israel Gave them Voice, they Propagate Terror. Israel' s public Arabic-language television channel has become a mouthpiece for Muslim and anti-Israel propaganda. The station's promotion of pro-Palestinian content is effected largely by Arab residents of eastern Jerusalem who are not Israelis and who occupy influential positions in the Arabic station. (It is just another example of the stupidity of 'political correctness' . Shouldn't the Israeli government have full control of its own propaganda apparatus?)

Another UN Joke. The Iranian Islamic regime is expected to seek a seat on the United Nations' Human Rights Council. The 47-nation body is scheduled to hold elections in May.

Hypocrisy of the Headlines.

French FM wants international recognition of Palestinian state before borders are negotiated - Another traditional 'friend' of Israel. Israel must recognise the Basque state even before France and Spain agree to acknowledge the legitimate claim of the Basque people for independence! So-called Palestinians do not have this legitimacy, but their fake claim is supported by anti-Semitic international bigots anyway.

Truth is Hard to Swallow. Turkey is recalling its U.S. ambassador, after the committee on Foreign Relations of the House of Representatives approved a resolution by narrow majority to call Turkey's massacre of Armenians during WWI "genocide". (The genocide of up to 1.5 million Armenians by Turks opened the flood gates for the Holocaust and other inhumanities of the 20th century. Why did it take the leading world democracy almost 100 years to acknowledge the truth?)

Hypocrisy of the US Genocidal Foreign Policy.

A similar resolution was approved by the same committee two years ago, but did not go forward to the House after pressure from the George W Bush administration.

Before Election: Barack Obama: "If elected President, I will recognize the Armenian Genocide." Hillary Clinton: "I have been a longstanding supporter of the Armenian Genocide Resolution."

After the resolution: Mrs Clinton - who had urged the House Foreign Affairs Committee not to hold the vote - "We are against this decision. Now we believe that the US Congress will not take any decision on this subject." (The busters lie without any shame!)

From Australia with NO Respect. Australian Federal Police (AFP) agents in Israel investigating the Dubai assassination allegedly hit-and-ran a female Israeli bicycle-rider. (They came to 'investigate' the alleged involvement of Israel in the assassination of an Islamic terrorist with no respect for the people and laws of Israel!)

Why there are Israeli Arabs - Why Transfer Jews?

by Steven Shamrak.

Critics of Israel love to mention UN resolutions, but they do not like it when people in fact read them. Quite often interpretation of the UN resolutions has nothing in common with the actual text:

Resolution 181 (II). Future Government of Palestine, adopted on 29 November 1947, address the issue of citizenship of the future population of Palestine.

Chapter 3 - Citizenship, international conventions and financial obligations

"Citizenship: Palestinian citizens residing in Palestine outside the City of Jerusalem , upon the recognition of independence, become citizens of the State in which they are resident and enjoy full civil and political rights."

At the time of declaration of Israeli independence most Arabs were not residents of Israel , but the proposed Arab state. Therefore, they should be citizens of an Arab state. It is not Israel 's fault that Arabs rejected the UN partition plan.

"Persons over the age of eighteen years may opt, within one year from the date of recognition of independence of the State in which they reside, for citizenship of the other State, providing that no Arab residing in the area of the proposed Arab State shall have the right to opt for citizenship in the proposed Jewish State..."

The UN resolution allowed Jews to live outside the official border of the Jewish state. I would like to ask if Arabs are allowed to live in Israel, why Jews must leave territories, regardless of the outcome of future negotiations? Therefore, I would suggest that transfer of Jews from the territories contradicts UN Resolution 181, as well as recent UN resolutions related to population transfer.

The issue of Jews living in the West Bank and Gaza is used as another propaganda decoy tactic. Most forgotten by now 'big and important issues' like: construction of by-pass roads, Sharon 's visit to the Temple Mount etc. They all have one purpose - to hide the Arabs' intention, probably not only Arabs, to destroy Israel !

(It is just another example of the stupidity of 'political correctness' . Shouldn't the Israeli government have full control of its own propaganda apparatus?)

Another UN Joke. The Iranian Islamic regime is expected to seek a seat on the United Nations' Human Rights Council. The 47-nation body is scheduled to hold elections in May.

Hypocrisy of the Headlines.

French FM wants international recognition of Palestinian state before borders are negotiated - Another traditional 'friend' of Israel. Israel must recognise the Basque state even before France and Spain agree to acknowledge the legitimate claim of the Basque people for independence! So-called Palestinians do not have this legitimacy, but their fake claim is supported by anti-Semitic international bigots anyway.

Truth is Hard to Swallow. Turkey is recalling its U.S. ambassador, after the committee on Foreign Relations of the House of Representatives approved a resolution by narrow majority to call Turkey's massacre of Armenians during WWI "genocide". (The genocide of up to 1.5 million Armenians by Turks opened the flood gates for the Holocaust and other inhumanities of the 20th century. Why did it take the leading world democracy almost 100 years to acknowledge the truth?)

Hypocrisy of the US Genocidal Foreign Policy.

A similar resolution was approved by the same committee two years ago, but did not go forward to the House after pressure from the George W Bush administration.

Before Election: Barack Obama: "If elected President, I will recognize the Armenian Genocide." Hillary Clinton: "I have been a longstanding supporter of the Armenian Genocide Resolution."

After the resolution: Mrs Clinton - who had urged the House Foreign Affairs Committee not to hold the vote - "We are against this decision. Now we believe that the US Congress will not take any decision on this subject." (The busters lie without any shame!)

From Australia with NO Respect. Australian Federal Police (AFP) agents in Israel investigating the Dubai assassination allegedly hit-and-ran a female Israeli bicycle-rider. (They came to 'investigate' the alleged involvement of Israel in the assassination of an Islamic terrorist with no respect for the people and laws of Israel!)

Why there are Israeli Arabs - Why Transfer Jews?

by Steven Shamrak.

Critics of Israel love to mention UN resolutions, but they do not like it when people in fact read them. Quite often interpretation of the UN resolutions has nothing in common with the actual text:

Resolution 181 (II). Future Government of Palestine, adopted on 29 November 1947, address the issue of citizenship of the future population of Palestine.

Chapter 3 - Citizenship, international conventions and financial obligations

"Citizenship: Palestinian citizens residing in Palestine outside the City of Jerusalem , upon the recognition of independence, become citizens of the State in which they are resident and enjoy full civil and political rights."

At the time of declaration of Israeli independence most Arabs were not residents of Israel , but the proposed Arab state. Therefore, they should be citizens of an Arab state. It is not Israel 's fault that Arabs rejected the UN partition plan.
