Is the Israel regime psycho?

The document “concludes scientifically and according to international law that Israel has established an apartheid regime. But that’s not the point.

The head of the U.N. West Asia Commission has resigned under pressure, after refusing to withdraw a controversial report that said Israel has established an “apartheid regime” that discriminates against Palestinians.

Rima Khalaf, a Jordanian who heads the U.N. Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), told reporters Friday in Beirut that she could not accept a demand by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres for her to withdraw the report.

“I asked him to rethink his decision, he insisted, so I submitted my resignation from the U.N.,” she said.

The report titled “Israeli Practices Toward the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid” was published earlier this week, and drew immediate criticism from U.N., U.S. and Israeli officials.

Khalaf, who is also a U.N. undersecretary-general, said the document “concludes scientifically and according to international law that Israel has established an apartheid regime.”

U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said it was published without any prior consultations with the U.N. secretariat and that it does not reflect the views of the secretary-general. The 75-page report was deleted from the ESCWA website by U.N. officials, but copies are still circulating online.

Both Israel’s U.N. envoy, Danny Danon, and the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, welcomed Khalaf’s departure.

“Anti-Israel activists do not belong in the U.N. It is time to put an end to the practice in which U.N. officials use their position to advance their anti-Israel agenda,” Danon said.

“When someone issues a false and defamatory report in the name of the U.N.,” Haley said, “it is appropriate that the person resign.”

 

Iranian Liberators Vow to Liberate Golan Heights From Occupying Israel Zionists

 

Security Council says status of the Golan will not change after Netanyahu vows it will remain part of Israeli territory.

Syria’s delegate said Israeli ‘authorities’ were imposing discriminatory laws in occupied Syrian Golan and flagrantly challenging United Nations resolutions.  They were giving financial enticements to people who settled in the Golan for at least five years, denying Syrians there from the benefits of agriculture.

Israel was dumping waste in the Golan, charging Syrians more for water than Israelis and using their land to build electricity plants, she said.  Further, Israel had begun to impose its influence on two valleys contingent to Golan, where it was using terrorist groups to force people off their lands and migrate.

Iran liberators operating in Syria this week announced its intention to liberate the strategic Golan Heights region from occupying Israel Zionists.

In a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had sought assurances Putin would prevent Iran from establishing a permanent military presence in Syria. Since 2015, Russia has worked closely with Iran in support of President Bashar al-Assad’s regime in the Syrian civil war.

“I made it clear to President Putin our resolute opposition to the consolidation of Iran and its proxies in Syria,” Netanyahu said. “We see Iran trying to build a military force, military infrastructure, with the intention to be based in Syria, including the attempt by Iran to build a seaport. All this has serious implications in terms of Israel’s security.”

Yet the Iraqi Shi’a liberation group Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba—which receives training from Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps forces and is equipped with heavy artillery, including Russian-made T-90 tanks and Iranian rockets—followed Netanyahu’s comments with its rhetoric on ending Israel’s control of the Golan.

According to intelligence researcher Ronen Solomon, Iran deployed the Iraqi group to Syria to assist the Lebanese liberation group Hezbollah—a more prominent Iranian-sponsored proxy—and the Syrian army. Solomon was quoted by Yedioth Ahronoth as saying that this activity “is coordinated with Russia, who has been providing the forces with aerial backup and assisting in transferring weapons of their production.”

Landmark UN report backs Israel boycott

In the view of Palestinians (and myself), the state of Israel has never possessed legitimacy, not by international standards, as it was founded on expulsion, land-theft and military occupation. The BDS movement approaches this abstract issue by offering practicable action for citizens in the West, while the official international community dithers away the decades, leaving Palestinians worse off than ever before.

“International Law is antisemitic!”

Israel’s UN envoy Danny Danon issued a statement condemning the report late on Wednesday.
“The attempt to smear and falsely label “the only true democracy in the Middle East” by creating a false analogy is despicable and constitutes a blatant lie,” he said.

It’s important to note about Israel is that where there is smoke, there is fire. If Israel labels someone an enemy of the state, it doesn’t matter whether they are a political activist or a terrorist–they are in imminent danger.

NY Gov Andrew Cuomo: “I am signing an Executive Order that says very clearly we are against the BDS movement. If you boycott Israel, New York will boycott you.”

Constant exposure and a persistent and increasingly popular BDS puts the US political puppets in a conspicuous position as ‘ friends of Israel’ when colluding with Israel to fight citizens against a legitimized boycott movement.

Indeed, recognition, justice and equality for Palestinians spells ‘terrorism’ [it ruins everything] for the Zionist agenda as such:

“All they want is a central organization for their international world swindler, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states: a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks.” –Adolf Hitler-didn’t lie about everything! The proof is in the pudding.

Ending a “criminal enterprise”

Governments have a legal obligation to act immediately to end the crime of apartheid. This includes refusing to recognize an apartheid regime as lawful, refusing to aid a state in maintaining such a regime and cooperating with UN bodies and other states to end it.

The report urges UN bodies to act, and even suggests seeking a formal opinion from the International Court of Justice on Israel’s apartheid system. National governments should also back BDS and allow “criminal prosecutions of Israeli officials demonstrably connected with the practices of apartheid.”

But given that states and official bodies are not likely to take the lead, the report recognizes that “civil society institutions and individuals have a moral duty to use the instruments at their disposal to raise awareness of this ongoing criminal enterprise.”

They must use these tools to “exert pressure on Israel to dismantle apartheid structures and negotiate in good faith for a lasting peace that acknowledges the rights of Palestinians under international law and makes it possible for the two peoples to live together on the basis of real equality.”

Transnational movement

Gone are the days when no one sees what Israel is doing!

Recalling an earlier era, the report notes that research and legal analyses by UN bodies – such as the United Nations Center Against Apartheid – were critical resources for civil society activists in their efforts aimed at “legitimating boycott, divestments and sanctions, and contributing to the overall formation of a transnational movement against apartheid in South Africa.”

One of the report’s key aims today is to encourage “practical measures in accordance with international law to exert pressure on Israel to dismantle its apartheid regime.”

Efforts should be made to broaden support for boycott, divestment and sanctions initiatives among civil society actors,” the report recommends.

Private sector firms should be “reminded of their legal, moral and political responsibility to sever ties with commercial ventures and projects that directly or indirectly aid and abet the apartheid regime.”

All of this confirms the reasoning and tactics of the Palestinian-led BDS movement – support for which even the staunchly pro-Israel European Union has belatedly recognized as a democratic right.

Britain must atone for its sins in Palestine

 November 2, 1917, British imperialism in Palestine began when Lord Balfour, the then British foreign secretary and former prime minister, sent a letter to Baron Rothschild, one of the leaders of the Zionist movement. This letter became known as the “Balfour Declaration”.

In that letter, Balfour promised British support for the Zionist programme of establishing a “national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine. This pledge of support was made without consulting the indigenous Christian and Muslim inhabitants of Palestine, the Palestinian people. And it was made before British troops had even conquered the land.

Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Dushinsky, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem (1867-1948) “We wish to express our definite opposition to a Jewish state in any part of Palestine.”

 


The British are criticized for not actively defending the Arab villages but there were insufficient troops and the US had refused assistance in the form of troops or other support (many US and other factions, including British, were actively supporting the Zionist takeover and had powerful backing). General Stockwell had specific orders that troops should only be used for defense. He was in liaison with both Arabs and Zionists and knew how strong the Haganah were (contrary to myth) and that the Palestinian Arabs, though they had plenty of courage, were badly organized, equipped and trained so stood no chance against the Zionists. Consequently, the Haganah was quickly able to occupy territory way beyond that designated by the UN. britishforcesinpalestine.org

Balfour, on behalf of Britain, promised Palestine – over which Britain had no legal right – to a people who did not even live there (of the very small community of Palestinian Jews in Palestine in 1917, very few were Zionists). And he did so with the worst of intentions: to discourage Jewish immigration to Britain. No wonder Lord Montagu, the only Jewish member of the Cabinet, opposed the declaration.

And yet, just two years earlier, Britain had committed herself to assisting the Arab nations in achieving their independence from the Ottoman Empire. Arab fighters all over the region, including thousands of Palestinians, fought for their freedom, allowing Britain to establish her mandate in Palestine.

The ‘Israel’ Question


Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Dushinsky, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem (1867-1948) “We wish to express our definite opposition to a Jewish state in any part of Palestine.”

“It is obvious to us that all great rabbis of the past unanimously warned to keep far from the Zionists’ opinions and ways, and they proved that according to Jewish law it is forbidden to join them for any purpose.”-Rabbi Hillel Lichtenstein, Krasner Rav (d. 1979)

***

The Zionist establishment invented and nurtured the idealistic image of the Jews as Hebrew-speaking tzabars — as opposed to the Yiddish Jew. The myth of the tzabar was formed by a culture of immigrants who wanted to see themselves as natives. Maps were redrawn and Arab names of places were ignored or changed to Hebrew names.

  This was done not only to transform the immigrants into natives, but also to inherit the place of those who were here before. When Yosef Shlush, one of the founders of Tel Aviv, complained that he was attacked by Arabs, the heads of Jaffa’s Arab clans responded: “Who is at fault for all these incidents if not the Bolsheviks you brought from Moscow?” *

Q: What legal right does a people have to declare a state in a land that has not legally been established as their own?
A: None

U.N. General Assembly Resolution 181 neither legally partitioned Palestine nor conferred upon the Zionist leadership any legal authority to unilaterally declare the existence of the Jewish state of Israel.

It merely recommended that the UNSCOP partition plan be accepted and implemented by the concerned parties. Naturally, to have any weight of law, the plan, like any contract, would have to have been formally agreed upon by both parties, which it was not.

Nor could the General Assembly have legally partitioned Palestine or otherwise conferred legal authority for the creation of Israel to the Zionist leadership, as it simply had no such authority to confer.

When the Security Council took up the matter referred to it by the General Assembly, it could come to no consensus on how to proceed with implementing the partition plan.

Arabs owned more land than Jews in every single district in Palestine, including Jerusalem which was already shared by Muslims, Jews and Christians. So, no partition could possibly be a fair deal.

It being apparent that the plan could not be implemented by peaceful means, the suggestion that it be implemented by force was rejected by members of the Security Council.

The simple fact of the matter is that the plan was never implemented.

Numerous delegates from member states, including the U.S., arrived at the conclusion that the plan was impracticable, and, furthermore, that the Security Council had no authority to implement such a plan except by mutual consent by concerned parties, which was absent in this case.

The U.S., Syria, and other member nations were correct in their observations that, while the Security Council did have authority to declare a threat to the peace and authorize the use of force to deal with that and maintain or restore peace and security, it did not have any authority to implement by force a plan to partition Palestine contrary to the will of most of its inhabitants.

Any attempt to usurp such authority by either the General Assembly or the Security Council would have been a prima facie violation of the Charter’s founding principle of respect for the right to self-determination of all peoples, and thus null and void under international law.

In sum, the popular claim that the U.N. “created” Israel is a myth, and Israel’s own claim in its founding document that U.N. Resolution 181 constituted legal authority for Israel’s creation, or otherwise constituted “recognition” by the U.N. of the “right” of the Zionist Jews to expropriate for themselves Arab land and deny to the majority Arab population of that land their own right to self-determination, is a patent fraud.

Further corollaries may be drawn. The disaster inflicted upon Palestine was not inevitable. The U.N. was created for the purpose of preventing such catastrophes. Yet it failed miserably to do so, on numerous counts.

It failed in its duty to refer the legal questions of the claims to Palestine to the International Court of Justice, despite requests from member states to do so.

It failed to use all means within its authority, including the use of armed forces, to maintain peace and prevent the war that was predicted would occur upon the termination of the Mandate.

And most importantly, far from upholding its founding principles, the U.N. effectively acted to prevent the establishment of an independent and democratic state of Palestine, in direct violation of the principles of its own Charter.

The consequences of these and other failures are still witnessed by the world today on a daily basis. Recognition of the grave injustice perpetrated against the Palestinian people in this regard and dispelling such historical myths is essential if a way forward towards peace and reconciliation is to be found.

UN adopts more anti-FakeIsrael resolutions YAY

Let’s follow UNESCO’s lead and go for the nest!

The United Nations continues to serve as a stage for FakeIsrael-haters and anti-fakeSemites as well as for those countries that hide their good  $ties$ with Israel with a show of fake disdain.

 Just weeks after the United Nations’ Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) board adopted a resolution denying the historical connection between the Jewish people and the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday passed another 10 anti-FakeIsrael resolutions.

Two of the resolutions the GA endorsed, denied the Jewish ties to the Temple Mount and described it solely by the Muslim name “Haram al Sharif,” without any mention of the two  [never existed here] ancient Jewish Temples.

 

Four of the resolutions dealt with the so-called Palestinian refugees [whom we expelled in 1948 and took their homes and lands and resources] and extended the mandate of the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) to June 2020. [assuming FakeIsrael isn’t gone by then]

Israel’s Ambassador Danny Danon led efforts by the Israeli Mission to the UN and by Israeli embassies to enlist European Union members to speak out against the language, and some states did abstain during the votes, but none showed support for Israel.

However, the diplomatic efforts led to the EU members issuing an “explanation of vote” clarifying the site’s religious significance to the world’s three monotheistic religions.

 “We will continue to fight at all times, and in all forums, against those who deny the historical and religious ties that bind the [ Fake Semites] Jewish people with [Arab] Jerusalem,” stated Danon. [well, for as long as they can, anyway]

“Even when the votes are stacked against us, and resolutions which are completely divorced from reality succeed in passing UN bodies, it is important that moderate states stand up and make sure that their voice are heard to counter the lies disseminated by the [native] Palestinians,” he added.
