As Usual, Americans Back Israeli Goliath Against Palestine (The Frontier Post, Pakistan)

 

"The international community is often critical of Israeli inaction, but America invariably comes to the help of the Zionist state anyway. This is a tactic that has allowed the Middle East crisis and the aggression of the Jewish government to linger on for more than six decades. ... It is also an old story: with Western assistance, Israel not only has the most advanced and superior military, but nuclear weapons as well."

ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS: Israeli settlers call for action against Palestinian militants, Nov. 19, 00:02:06RealVideo

Once again, the Zionist state has launched an aggression against Palestine, targeting Rafah in southern Gaza on Saturday, and in air attacks killing at least four civilians. The assault makes the overall death toll 38 in two days. The worst part was the raid on a refugee camp at Maghazi in central Gaza. At the same time, as violence escalated in Gaza and Israel signaled a possible ground invasion, President Barack Obama spoke to Israeli and Egyptian leaders on Friday night.

 

Also on Friday, Palestinian militants took aim at Jerusalem for the first time, launching a rocket attack on the holy city, which both sides claim as their capitol. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Obama to provide an update of the situation and thanks Obama and the American people for their investment in the Iron Dome rocket and mortar defense system, which has been used to defend Israel against rocket attacks from Gaza, saving many Israeli lives.

 

Obama reiterated U.S. support for Israel's "right to self-defense" and discussed ways to scale back the conflict. In his talk with Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, Obama hoped that Cairo would help the global community scale down the offensive and resolve the situation as quickly as possible.

 

It was the first time Hamas carried out rocket attacks against Israel, which has responded by assassinating its military chief and conducting dozens of airstrikes on suspected rocket-launch sites and other Hamas targets. In all, 27 Palestinians and three Israelis were killed.

 

[Editor's Note: The writer is misinformed. Palestinian militants, including Hamas, have been launching rocket attacks on Israel since at least 2001.]

 

At the same time, several pro-Palestinian demonstrations were held condemning Israeli authorities for their aggression. At a protest rally outside the White House on Friday night, demonstrators chanted slogans denouncing Netanyahu and the Israeli army. Similar rallies were held in Italy and other European countries. Protesters said Israel would not conduct air strikes without U.S. support and called on Obama to end the "bloodthirsty attacks" by Israel.

Egypt President Mohammad Morsi then called [Pakistan] Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf, seeking help from Islamabad in taking up this latest Mideast explosion to the United Nations. In response, Pakistan not only strongly condemned Israeli air attacks on the Hamas leadership in Gaza, but against innocent civilians. Islamabad assured the Egyptian head of state of its full cooperation in denouncing this aggression by Tel Aviv.

The idea of the Egyptian president seeking U.N. action over this latest Israeli aggression may be of interest in terms of academic discussion. But who doesn't know how the issue will be confronted by the United States and its Western allies, who have supported the Zionist state since its illegitimate birth in May 1948 under the Balfour Declaration? It's no secret that while the U.N. Security Council has attempted to pass numerous resolutions critical of Israel, Washington has vetoed almost every one. Although resolutions demanding that Israel allow Arabs and Palestinians to exist in the Middle East have been passed, they have garnered little respect from Tel Aviv and its Western protectors.

 

For example, the U.N. Security Council Resolution 242, which demands that Israel return land captured in the 1967 war, has yet to be implemented - and the entire world knows it. U.N. General Assembly Resolution 194, passed in 1948, allowed for both Jews and Arabs to live in Israel, but has never been implemented in letter and spirit.

An additional source of frustration for the Palestinian people is that the land being settled on by Israelis is usually prime land, and hence peace negotiations usually leave Palestine with the less desirable land.

 

Israel also controls Palestine's water sources. The non-contiguous land that comprises Gaza and West Bank, and Israeli control over the movement of Palestinians, results in the disconnection of Palestinians from the outside world.

 

The international community is often critical of Israeli inaction, but America invariably comes to the help of the Zionist state anyway. This is a tactic that has allowed the Middle East crisis and the aggression of the Jewish government to linger on for more than six decades. Over that time, all that has been seen is the expansion of Israeli settlements.

 

It is also an old story: with Western assistance, Israel not only has the most advanced and superior military, but nuclear weapons as well.
