Facts speak for themselves correctly and objectively that the Israelis through the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) lobbyists could bully American leaders and Congressmen as well as media leaders into supporting and financing Israeli actions in the occupied lands to the tune of three to five billions of US dollars a year as well as supporting its political interests worldwide, while American leaders and the congressmen as well as media leaders could not be brave enough to stand up against the Israelis bullying!
Of course, the U.S.A, the renowned World Preacher of Human Rights and Democracy continues to support the terrorist state of Israel by giving it tanks, planes, rocket launchers and financial support to the tune of three to five billion dollars a year, with which Israel has built up the fourth-largest military machine in the world.
The Israeli occupation of the Palestinian lands, the building of the Zionist Apartheid Walls, the Israeli crimes against humanity and the Zionist state’s hegemony over the Middle East will continue, however, only as long as American money makes it possible. One day this money will no longer be forthcoming, for one reason or another. That will be Israel’s Day of Reckoning.
A few months ago, Rep. Ron Paul (R-KY) irked the Zionist Lobby, when he told CNN’s Jewish talk-show host Wolf Blitzer that under crushing economic picture in the US, Washington needs to stop its billions of dollars of annual aid to Israel. Since its creation by the western powers, Israel has successfully sucked over US$3 trillion from the US taxpayers. Barack Obama in late 2009 approved an additional $2.77 billion for Israeli foreign aid in 2010, and another $30 billion over the next decade.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), the highest ranking Jewish member of Congress, has played down any talk of cutting foreign aid payments to Israel. Most Americans believe that European Jewish settlers need their hard-earned money to makes two-ends meals in a place surrounded by anti-Semite, anti-American 300 million Arabs. But the fact is, while Israeli Jews receive 46% of total foreign USAID – they have the highest standard of living among its Arab neighbors.
In 2010 – the Zionist entity reported the highest numbers of billionaires (10) and millionaires (5900) in the Middle East. The 2011 report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) proves once again that while the US economy is in the drain due to US-Israeli wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya – the Israel’s economy is booming.
Growing by 7.8% last year, the Israeli economy ranked fifth highest in growth among the world’s most prosperous OECD’s 34 members. Israel’s growth outstripped that of the United States, Britain, Japan, Germany and France.
However, the report also claimed that poverty is almost twice as widespread in Israel, 19.9% of the population, compared to the OECD average, 10.9%. The gap between the overall standard of living in Israel and that of the lowest tenth of the population was three times higher than the OECD average. In its latest release of data, made public April 12, the OECD reported that 39% of Israelis find it “difficult” or “very difficult” to live on their current incomes, well above the OECD average of 24%. How sad indeed!
Turkey is the only Muslim country among the OECD members. In May 2010 – when OECD’s 32-member unanimously voted in favor of accepting Israel as new member of the ‘ZOG Ummah’. Benji Netanyahu was so excited that he called it a “seal of approval” of Zionazi policies against its neighbors: “Joining the OECD is like receiving a university degree. Just as it is significant to have a degree from the Technion, for example, when entering the job market, entering the OECD will open doors and provide access to many fields. It’s a seal of approval”.
Israel is not only becoming a nuisance for the world at large but also creating intractable problems for her chief guardian angel United States: the latest being an indirect diplomatic row between Turkey and the United States. United States has been traditionally overlooking all the mischiefs of Israel like a father does to a spoilt child. However, of late, these have assumed such reckless and monstrous proportions as to land America into difficult situations as far as her relations with the rest of the world are concerned.
Israel is a millstone in the neck of United States. It is like a parasite that is sucking the economic blood of America. The Sooner the American nation realizes this stark reality; the better it would be for them and for the whole world. In the post world war two eras, America’s main foreign policy plank has been to protect Israel, condone, and overlook its gross misconduct and wayward behavior as an uncouth bully and as an irresponsible state. If America believes in morality, sanctity of international law, equality and justice then it should understand that its protégé Israel is in the forefront of infringing all these sublime norms.
Is it only the Israel’s security and existence that has become the bounden responsibility of the America and for that, it has antagonized the entire Islamic bloc? United States has been willfully indifferent to tame Israel despite knowing it well that it has been an aggressor and usurper of Arab lands. America is also quite mindful that the establishment of a Palestinian state is an obligation of the international community and of the United Nations as pledged in the historic resolution 181.
It is also in the knowledge of the rest of the world and particularly America that the Palestinian right of statehood has been calously and stubbornly denied and resisted by Israel. The world is also aware that Israel has been using ruthless tactics and its powerful army to kill and annihilate the Palestinian population most of which is now Diaspora or Refugees in their besieged and cordoned land.
Now all these sordid facts are self-evident. However, with the propensity for selective morality and a manifest bias against the Muslims in general and Palestinian in particular, America has been blindly and obdurately supporting Israel in every conceivable manner. The peace in the Middle East has always remained on tenterhooks due to the banditry of Israel and her refusal to accept and concede to the right of Palestinian for a promised independent state.
American has been at war with the Muslims around the world for no other reason except to save Israel and to patronize it by hook and crook irrespective of the glaring fact that this hostility and confrontation has been initiated and carried forward by Israel and the United States. Despite America?s unconditional and uncalled for support for Israel, most of the Muslim countries are still friends of America. No Muslim country has ever taken a lead in any hostile act against America.
On the contrary, the entire Islamic world was in the forefront against the Soviet army in Afghanistan where Muslim warriors fought a decade long epic war at a huge loss of life. It was the Muslim guerillas and Mujahedeen who defeated the Soviet army and drove it out of that coutry. In comparisons, what Israel has done for American?
Even in case of seizure of Flotilla and brutal murder of peace volunteers at ships, America has shirked from taking a principled stand, which the least was to condemn this act of blatant barbarism. The official American statement was couched in mild words, which was an implied support for Israel?s ruthless military operation in the international waters. How can America preach and plod others to uphold established principles governing inter-state relations, when she herself is violating these for the sake of a rogue client state.
Due to its blind and immodest support for Israel, the United States? image has enormously suffered. There is a widespread revulsion in many countries for America’s mindless wars it has been waging after the WWII. Now with wise, evenhanded, and farsighted policies, America could keep her godfather role with Israel and at the same time befriend the Islamic world. That can be done only if America adopts the role of a neutral referee and an impartial arbitrator between the aggressed and the aggressor.
But more than the image of America for sidetracking the right and just stands in disputes between the states, American economy is fast plummeting due to its involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Without any hope for peace or victory for America, a staggering amount of three trillion dollars has been wasted away. The Iraq war was not to punish Saddam Hussain, because he was a coward and a pliant friend of America. It was to remove and weaken a potential enemy of Israel in that region.
It has been difficult for America to press or at least persuade Israel to come to terms with her neighbors, accept the creation of Palestinian state, and vacate the Arab territories it has been forcibly occupying following various wars engineered by her. At the end of day and in the longer term, if Israel persists in her audacity of denying the rights of Palestinians as an independent nation, there might be a bloody war.
If Israel is under the impression that it would wipe off all the Palestinians from the land of Palestine, it is indeed is a self-delusion that it should get rid off as fast as possible. The world has drastically changed since the war of 1967. Even many western countries, besides, Australia and New Zealand that were sympathetic towards Israel, seem to be frustrated about Israel’s questionable conduct.
The Islamic militancy directed against America is primarily due to her alliance with Israel aimed at browbeating the Palestinians and the Islamic world. If the fate of Palestine with acceptable solution of the status of jurosalem were decided, this militancy would automatically dissipate. The United States should not pursue the precept of clash of civilization that certain hardcore elements within the west have been trumpeting. It is a recipe for a Third World War and eventual destruction of humankind and all living being. There is not going to be an Armageddon that would result in one-sided victory and only the anti-Christian elements would be exterminated. The destruction would be unimaginable for all sides.
Due to a stifled economy and diversion of funds for futile wars, the American society is tumultuously faced with curtailment of jobs, reduced industrial output, the diminishing social services like health and education, rebuilding age-old infrastructure and a forlorn mentality. The poverty graph is slowing moving up. The wars have become an irritating part of American psyche. The space exploration, the vital scientific research, and advancement of technology have come to a standstill or drastically slowed down in America. Other countries are overtaking America is these fields because they are not fighting any wars. Instead, they are spending their money on socio-economic sectors and in scientific research and exploration.
America is losing its super power status. The dollar is open to the vagaries of international repercussions and a stiff competition from other currencies. With the resolution of the Palestinian dispute by prevailing over Israel and taking a rather rational stand in the Middle East disputes, America can avert the terror nightmare for the future. By recalling her armies from Iraq and Afghanistan, it can stem huge financial loss it is incurring for so many years now. Logically this is no prudent way to fight terrorists. How long can you fight in this fashion by merely creating well-cordoned military garrisons in a small areas of the capitals of Iraq and Afghanistan? The rest of the land is always at the disposal of the militants. Even if NATO finally prevails, it would be a Pyrrhic victory.
The Israeli commando attack on Flotilla is akin to the Somalian piracy because of their occurrence in the international waters. By doing so Israel has immensely embarrassed the United States making it hard for the latter to justify the Israeli action while opposing what the Somalian pirates are doing in the high seas. If America as usual, sides with the tiny state of Israel, she risks her relations with a staunch and critical ally Turkey that feels humiliated by the killings of Turkish nationals by the Israeli paratroopers.
Israel with her customary disdain for the United Nations has rejected the world body’s call for an impartial inquiry. She wants to conduct such inquiry by herself. It clearly means that she wants to hunt with the hare and run with the hound. It has committed a heinous crime and wants to probe it herself. Would Israel give a verdict against herself? If Israel rejects the United Nations? resolution for an impartial inquiry, then other countries too have the right to reject the resolution Number 181 on the strength of which Israel came into being. This shows how insensitive and unresponsive Israel has become to the human issues and to the global feelings.
A seriously messed up country
Michael Snyder (American Dream) in his article titled “16 examples that show the US has become a seriously messed up country” writes In recent years, it has been quite common to hear our politicians and top media personalities talk about the need for America to use military force to impose “our values” on the rest of the world. But what “values” could they possibly be talking about?
The truth is that we don’t have any “values” worth sharing with anyone at this point. America has become a festering cesspool of garbage and filth, and it is getting worse with each passing day. As a nation, we need to humble ourselves and turn away from our wicked deeds and rediscover the values that once made this country great. But instead, we seem to have developed a thirst for evil that can never be satisfied.
The entire nation seems to be slowly going insane, and not that many people are even alarmed by this. “I hope that you will share this article with others, because the American people desperately need a giant wake up call,” says Michael Snyder. The following are 16 examples that show that the United States has become a seriously messed up country…
#1 The American flag is starting to be banned in schools all over the nation, and federal courts are backing them up on this… Last week in Dariano v. Morgan Hill Unified School Dist., the 9th Circuit ruled that a public school can actually ban the American flag. Making matters worse, the decision allows the school to ban the American flag and still allow students to display flags of other countries.
#2 Speaking of our courts, many of them appear to have literally gone insane. Just check out what the highest court in Massachusetts recently ruled…
Massachusetts’ highest court has ruled that a man accused of secretly snapping photos up a woman’s skirt on an MBTA train did not break the law.
The State Supreme Judicial Court on Wednesday dismissed charges against Michael Robertson of Andover, who was arrested in August 2010 by transit police.
Officers had set up a sting on the Green Line after getting reports that Robertson was using his cellphone to take photos and video up female rider’s skirts and dresses.
#3 Parents are starting to lose the natural affection that they should have for their children. For example, a pregnant mother that already had three children recently tried to kill them all by driving her minivan into the ocean…
“The two in the back seat was crying, with their arms out saying ‘Our mommy’s trying to kill us, please help,’” said Tesseneer.
A bystander’s video of the rescue shows a rescuer carrying two children away from the sinking van when the children tell them there was another child inside.
“The kids are like, ‘No there’s a baby. There’s a baby,’” Tesseneer said. “She (the mother) wouldn’t say a word. She didn’t tell us nothing about a baby.”
The men are seen on video frantically trying to get to the small child through the hatchback and the driver’s side door.
#4 In the old days, some people would cruelly abandon their pets in the woods, but now this is actually happening to children…
A Florida couple was arrested for allegedly abandoning their three young children in the woods, authorities said.
Michael and Sarah Butcher, both 30, were first arrested Friday after illegally parking their red truck in a private RV park in Punta Gorda.
Cops later found crystal meth in their car’s glove compartment, along with a syringe and a burnt spoon, according to the arrest report.
After the pair was taken to jail –- where they repeatedly claimed to be brother and sister –- the police received a call that three children were found walking in the woods, “very dirty, hungry, and cold,” according to a police report.
#5 Teenagers in America just continue to become even more cruel. Perhaps we should rethink the way that we are raising our children…
Four teenagers are accused of carving a swastika into the forehead of a 16-year-old boy.
The Oregonian reports that Jenna Montgomery, 15, Jess Taylor, 17, Blue Kalmbach, 15, and a 14-year-old boy attacked the boy in a shed, shooting him with a BB gun and hitting him with a crow bar, on top of carving a swastika into his forehead.
#6 The FDA is actually considering making it legal for doctors and scientists to create “three parent babies” in the United States.
#7 Our financial system appears to be more corrupt than it ever has been before. And yet nobody ever seems to go to prison…
In a nearly $13 billion settlement with the US Justice Department in November 2013, JPMorgan Chase admitted that it, along with every other large US bank, had engaged in mortgage fraud as a routine business practice, sowing the seeds of the mortgage meltdown. JPMorgan and other megabanks have now been caught in over a dozen major frauds, including LIBOR-rigging and bid-rigging; yet no prominent banker has gone to jail.
#8 Sexual perversion of all types is running rampant in America. Just consider what one Florida man recently did with a dog…
Police have arrested a Tampa man after his neighbors reported that he was having sex with a dog.
According to Tampa Police, officers were flagged down by the man’s neighbors on N. Marks Street Tuesday afternoon.
“When officers arrived on scene, they were greeted by a small crowd of residents who were disturbed by their neighbor’s activity with the dog,” a police spokeswoman explained. “Several of the witnesses stated that they yelled at the suspect to stop, but he ignored their commands.”
#9 An all-time high 59 percent of all Americans believe that the traditional definition of marriage needs to be changed.
#10 The popularity of “throuples” has surged so much that a new dating website has been launched that will cater to them specifically.
#11 Authorities around the nation are alarmed at the rise in occult-inspired crimes that appears to be happening. Most of you have probably heard about “the Craigslist Killer” by now…
A woman in Pennsylvania who has been charged with murder for killing a man she met on Craigslist has told reporters that she has committed over 20 murders as part of a satanic cult.
“When I hit 22 [murders], I stopped counting,” 19-year-old Miranda Barbour told the Daily Item on Saturday.
#12 The United States already has the highest rate of divorce in the entire world, and now the divorce rate is on the rise again. Some pundits are blaming the “improving economy” for this.
#13 In America today, there are 60 million people that abuse alcohol and there are 22 million people that use illegal drugs.
#14 As I wrote about recently, there are 747,408 registered sex offenders in the US according to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. That number only includes the ones that have been caught and convicted.
#15 Planned Parenthood has produced a video “that promotes bondage and sadomasochism” to teens…
Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE)–which received more than $2.75 million in government funding in 2012–has produced and posted online a video specifically aimed at teenagers that promotes bondage and sadomasochism (BDSM) and proposes “rules” to follow when engaging in these activities.
“People sometimes think that those who practice BDSM are emotionally scarred or were once abused—not true, it’s a total myth,” the host of the video, Laci Green, informs its intended audience of teens.
“BDSM relies upon and creates trust,” she says.
By the way, the US government gives hundreds of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood each year.
#16 Speaking of Planned Parenthood, more than 56 million American babies have been slaughtered in this country since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.
What should be done to a nation that does such a thing?
