Israel Must Close Settlements – The U.N. Speaks!

Israel attacksThe Israeli war machine is formidable thanks to the Yanks.

Friends, Reuters this morning carried two items regarding Israel: one was news about an attack by Israeli fighter jets on Syria. The circumstances and the results of the attack or its motivation are unclear but Syria has suggested their retaliation will come in the form of a surprise!

Of course, the Israelis have bombed Syria before. They struck a few years back attacking a site that was said to be associated with developing weapons of mass destruction. The whole incident has been hushed up and Syria did not retaliate. Whether that remains the case this time is unclear but it is unlikely that Syria, in the middle of a civil war, will want to open another front by attacking nuclear-armed Israel.

The other incident reported by Reuters had to do with the release of a U.N. report and a direction by a U.N. panel to close settlements and remove all settlers or risk being prosecuted for war crimes.

There are about 250 settlements in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, that have been established since the 1967 Middle East war and they hold an estimated 520,000 settlers,. The settlements, which are illegal under International Law, impede Palestinian access to water and farmland.

The settlements were “leading to a creeping annexation that prevents the establishment of a contiguous and viable Palestinian state and undermines the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination,” the report said.

“Israel must cease settlement activities and provide adequate, prompt and effective remedy to the victims of violations of human rights,” Christine Chanet, a French judge who led the U.N. inquiry, told a news conference”

She also said, “All U.N. member states must comply with their duty under international law on the settlements, she said. “We have highlighted states’ responsibility because the facts we denounce are known. The problem is nobody is doing anything about it.” .

Her message to Israel was clear. Withdraw the settlers, get rid of the settlements, and provide compensation or face prosecution.

Now you know and I both know that Israel will ignore this edict in the same way that it has ignored all U.N.  Resolutions and directives. We also know that the U.S. will again support Israeli criminality even though the U.S. is a member of the U.N.

We seem to be getting close to the stage where Israel could, in the light of this new condemnation, push the Palestinians out of the West Bank and Gaza and tell the world to ‘get stuffed!’

The war birds are circling. The war drums are beating. The threat of nuclear war has just increased yet again.

If there was a god, I would ask him to help us. But there is no god and the world is being run by madmen and anachronistic religious fanatics!

The result of such circumstances are entirely predictable!

  1. I cannot find suitable words for condemning the Israelis: the most terrible thing is now , that a wish has entered my brain : that Iran or another nation will destroy Israel.
    According to a bible expression God seems to have chosen Israel as a very special country. But now I believe that not for nothing already in Spain and later Russia and Germany, Jews were despised and therefor Htiler chose concentration camps in order to get rid of them..
    For Jews NOW to do the same to the original inhabitants of Israel as I witnessed on
    my computer last night , makes my blood boil.
    It is clear that now they want Ghaza as well.
    I wish Iran will deal with the Jews!
    Unfortunately NOW America wants to have the Middle East in its power for domination of the whole area.
    CAN IRAN NOT DEAL WITH IT AND DSHOW THE AMERICANS A LESSON????? Maria Kramers

  2. Maria, the Middle East is filled with desperate, greedy, power-crazed people from the region and further afield who are fighting over scarce resources and religious extremism.

    The end result will be nuclear war and, more than likely, human extinction. Thanks for your passionate comment!

  3. Oddly, the Israeli air strike bombed Russian built SA-17 medium range anti aircraft missiles.
    These are defensive missiles requiring extensive radar and other support vehicles to operate in order to shoot down hostile aircraft.

    Why is Israel attacking defensive missiles?.
    Logic indicates in order to negate any credible defence against a future and heavier Israeli attack.

    I invite anyone to look up anywhere on the internet the Russian anti aircraft SA-17 missile system.

  4. Mr Cat, Israel is like a mini-version of the U.S.: always on the lookout for more land to occupy, more resources to steal, more people to trick.

    I saw a documentary on the Settlers a few days ago. Talk about a collection of stone age kooks!

  5. I would say that the UN’s statement is the best thing to happen in a long time, BUT, knowing who we are dealing with _ Israel, I won’t hold my breath waiting for them to give back the illegal land! As you said, Dennis, “The result of such circumstances are entirely predictable!” That is why the headlines are always the same , year after year. I despair because there seems to be no reasoning with Israeli warmongers.

  6. “In Amerika Law No Longer Exists: The Extermination of Truth” by Paul Craig Roberts explains that,

    “if the government wants to get you today, all it has to do is to declare that someone or some organization somewhere in your past was connected in a vague undefined way with terrorism. The government’s assertion suffices. No proof is needed. The brainwashed jury will not protect you.”

    He also explains that likewise, thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court (run by modern Catholics and Jews) the courts are allowed to be, just as Congress and the Executive branch now are, servants of the police state and of Israel, and support the destruction of the Palestinians by designating aid to Palestine as an act of terrorism.”

    Like you said about yourself in the past, Dennis, I despair. Sandy Hooks is a hoax to deprive us of our right to defend ourselves. Check out: http://www.NoDisinfo.com.
    Likewise \,

  7. Bruce Campbell gave a rousingly truly great speech to a meeting he organized about gun grabbers, In his county in Idaho last week. He repeated it yesterday on the broadcast, “What’s Ailing America with Dr. Rebecca Carley” posted at http://www.grizzom.com. Oh if only more Americans were so heroic, real men, great parents.
