Without going into history, how the Jewish State of Israel was created in the middle of the Arab World (Muslim World), let’s focus on the current issues and find a solution. As long as it was recognized by the United Nations in 1948, we have to accept this reality; either one likes it or not. The irony is that, since 1948, Israel kept on expanding and pushing Arabs out of their homes and lands and forcing them to leave their land and property, either to immigrate to other countries or live a miserable life in refugee camps.
After Eleven days of recent aggression, it is encouraging that the ceasefire has been implemented. There were multiple reasons for the truce, but the most important was public opinion, which was condemning Israel worldwide. Almost all big cities all over the World have witnessed mass protests, demonstrations, and agitations. It seems the whole World was standing in solidarity with Palestinians. Although few Governments, like the UK, US, and France, were supporting Israeli acts of brutalities, but the public in their own countries was against Israeli aggressions. Some of the biased Western Media was supporting Israel and fabricating lame excuses and irrational justification for Israeli aggressions. But Social Media has played a positive role and rectified public opinion globally. Of Course Russian, and Chinese pressure was also irresistible on the State of Israel to stop air raids. On the ground, within Israel, a civil war erupted among Muslims, Jews, and Christians. Moreover, the Israeli defense system was not so much practical and could not save its territories from rocket attacks. There are reports that the Israeli defense system has shot down its own drones and fighter jets too. Also, there are reports that Israeli security forces killed one suspect within Israel, which was identified as American Jew later on.
Since 1848, Isreal was building its defense and spending lavishly. American economic assistance and Military aid were generous. Even during the recent 11 days conflict, the US was supplying the latest and advanced weapons to Israel, which is an open breach of the UN charter and all norms of the civilized World. Even the US was behind to postpone three times the UNSC statement to stop killings of innocent Palestinians.
Israeli defense capabilities are unmatched in the whole region. With Nuclear weapons, hi-tech, advanced systems, missiles, and the latest war techniques, Israel maintains hegemony. There is no comparison between the whole Arab World’s defense capabilities with Israel alone. Nothing to talk about Palestine or Gazza only, which is a fraction of Israel and that is too dependent on Israel for day-to-day life even.
Looking at the Israeli atrocities and brutalities against the Arab World since 1948, one can reach the conclusion that The Jewish State of Israel is Zionist, aggressive, and illegitimate. Based on its military might, it keeps on expanding and becoming bigger and stronger day by day.
This phenomenon is not new; history tells us there were Germany and Japan, two aggressive countries, and were held responsible for World Wars. But soon, they were brought to justice and held responsible for war crimes. They were made to pay war compensation, and their Military might was scattered and capped to revive in the future. Under the treaty, both Germany and Japan were prevented from rebuilding their Military power again. Both countries are still paying for war crimes, compensation as well as could not reconstruct their military might again.
Once it is established that Israel is an aggressive state and held responsible for killings of Muslims in millions, making them homeless in millions, and refused to live in peace and harmony with their neighbors. It is time for International Community to take action.
The international community must do more to safeguard the lives and fundamental rights of the Palestinian people, who continue to suffer under illegitimate foreign occupation. It should also not condone the violations of international law that underpin global and regional security.
For long-lasting and durable Peace in the region, it is imperative that the Palestinian people are granted their inalienable right to self-determination according to respective UN consensus. It is believed that a viable, independent, and contiguous original Palestinian State, with the pre-1948 borders, and Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital, is the only just, comprehensive and ever-lasting solution to the Palestine issue in accordance with the relevant United Nations and OIC resolutions. All Arab lands occupied in 1967 and 1973 should be returned back to Arabs.
International Community should mobilize all possible humanitarian assistance for the devastated Palestinian population in Gaza and other parts of the occupied territories. In addition to the UNRWA emergency appeal, the UN Secretary-General should launch a comprehensive humanitarian aid plan to deliver succor and sustenance to the Palestinians. There is a dire need to provide medical teams, medicines, and other supplies, food, and other necessities to Gaza and other parts of the occupied Palestinian territories immediately. Egypt’s immediate supply of humanitarian assistance to Gazza is highly appreciated. Israel must open all the access and entry points to Gaza to ensure the timely and urgent delivery of international aid and end the siege of Palestine immediately.
The UN General Assembly should call for concrete steps to protect the Palestinians and should deploy an international peace force, as was called for in General Assembly Resolution ES-10/20 and as demanded by the Islamic Summit Conference held on 18 May 2018.
If the Security Council cannot approve immediately to send the safeguarding force, a “coalition of the willing” can be shaped to provide at least civilian observers to monitor a cessation of the hostilities and supervise the delivery of humanitarian help to the Palestinians.
The UN Secretary-General and the High Commissioner for Human Rights to offer safety to Israel’s Arab (Muslims and Christians both) citizens living within Israel who are being lynched and murdered by fascist Israeli gangs at the present time.
The UN General Assembly should condemn: Israel’s forcible and illegal eviction of Palestinians, including in Al-Jarrah district of Jerusalem and constantly construction of Jewish new settlements; the onslaught against Palestinian worshipers in Haram Al-Sharif and Al-Aqsa mosque, the first Qibla of Islam, during the month of Ramadan; and Israel’s brutal and indiscriminate aerial and land wild-bombardment of Gaza.
Israel’s crimes against humanity should not spurt accountability. There should be no exemption for violation of international law, including the Fourth Geneva Convention and other human rights Conventions. The Human Rights Council, the ICC, the ICJ, and other avenues should be actuated to ensure Israeli accountability for its war crimes.
International Community should enhance concrete efforts to end Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories and to dismantle the illegal settlements and the apartheid-like regime Israel has enforced in the occupied territories. The General Assembly should secure unconditional implementation of resolution 242 of November 1967 in which the Security Council declared the “inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war” and demanded that Israel withdraw its armed forces from territories occupied in the 1967 war. It is, therefore, commanding to initiate bold steps to secure the implementation of the Security Council and General Assembly resolutions calling for the establishment of a viable, independent, and contiguous original Palestinian State with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital. President of Palestine (Fateh Group) Mehmood Abbas’s call for an International Conference to secure a peaceful settlement must be appreciated.
The Palestine catastrophe is at the heart of the chaos and conflicts in the Middle East. It is also the principal root cause of the humiliation and irritation in the Muslim and Arab world – anger which breeds extremism and often spawns acts of violence. A just solution for Palestine is imperative for the preservation of regional and global peace and security. It is to be understood well that Peace and stability in the Arab-Isreal are vital for international Peace, stability, and prosperity. Our next generations deserve a peaceful and happy life; we must understand that the Peace in Middle-east is an energy-rich region and can play a vital role in the global economy and prosperity. Peace in the Middle-east is a prerequisite for international Peace
It is only through determined and significant action that this Assembly can reinstate the credibility of the United Nations and demonstrate its effective role in stabilizing world peace and global order based on equity and justice.

The United Nations has appealed for $95m to help Palestinians over the next three months in Gaza, the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, after 11 days of the worst fighting between Israel and Palestinians in years. Lynn Hastings, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator for the Palestinian territories, said the UN was currently looking at immediate aid needs and would then assess the longer term damage and how much might be needed for reconstruction. She said the appeal launched on Thursday was to address “very immediate needs,” such as food, health, medicine, medical supplies, quick repairs to infrastructure and cash assistance. On top of the appeal, the UN has also already released $22.5m from other funds to help meet needs.
Thanks for your periodic postings of Prof Zamir Awan’s thoughts.
“If the Security Council cannot approve immediately to send the safeguarding force, a “coalition of the willing” can be shaped to provide at least civilian observers to monitor a cessation of the hostilities and supervise the delivery of humanitarian help to the Palestinians.”
Various UN agencies and NGOs already operate on the ground to deliver humanitarian help. They often end up as IDF missile targets. Deliberately so. With absolute impunity due to the US veto at the UNSC.
Only satrapies of the empire will be allowed to form such a “coalition of the willing” due to Washington’s veto, and it may turn out to simply be an outsourcing of Zionist apartheid occupation.
No prizes to imagine that any GCC or OIC or Arab League or Turkish troops with blue helmets on the ground will enforce pro-Tel Aviv foreign policy of their rulers, to the detriment of Palestinian interests. Add to the equation the volatile competition between Hamas and Fatah, with their alliances that evoke sectarian passions. It’s a no brainer recipe for disaster.
If you ask Mansoureh Tajik he may confirm to you that the potential of outsourced oppression in Palestine is mentioned in Shi’a Muslim eschatology, which is largely skipped in the Sunni Muslim version.
There will never be peace in the Middle East or the world until the Anglo-Saxon empire of loyal Khazarian servants is utterly defeated.
Yes ur are right and they the anglozionists are losing
I believe the original decision of the General Assembly in favour of the recognition of Israel was conditional on due respect for the rights of Palestinians. If so, the General Assembly should deem the original decision inoperative since the conditions are manifestly not met. The whole of Palestine should be declared the homeland of the Palestinian nation. And the Security Council should be mandated to implement the decision.

“The irony is that, since 1948, Israel kept on expanding and pushing Arabs out of their homes and lands and forcing them to leave their land and property, either to immigrate to other countries or live a miserable life in refugee camps.”
This is not quite accurate in its impression without some clarification.
The 1948-49 Green Line became a defacto administrative boundary within which “expanding and pushing Arabs out of their homes and lands” occurred after hostilities ceased. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Line_(Israel)
Subsequent step-wise staged expansions followed in 1967 and since that expanded areas under control and forced settlement agreements with third parties such as Egypt in exchange for some return of conquered lands.
The demolition of Mandatory Palestine (1920-48) has been one continuous project/process implemented in stages always preceded by war-law ‘justifying’ hostilties provoked by one side or the other.
It is highly likely that different Arab strategies in and after 1948-49 would have resulted in Israel today remaining boxed into the green-line zone — possibly unsubstainably without a participating local Arab population. The expansion justification was always engineered through ‘winning’ war and various generally accepted conquest principles — not by some squeezing out the domestic toothpaste principles beyond borders.
A mute point perhaps, but one that explains how the British handed over their ME empire assets captured from the Ottomans while trying to keep their hands clean in the hisotry books.
As you would well know, the 1947+ Partition of British India displaced between 10-20 million people along religious lines. Yes, of different scale but of very similar intent to the emergence of Israel following the cluster-f of the WW2.
Why is this so different?
Perhaps because the invaders were leaving India and the people of the regions split based on religion.
Whereas, in the partition of “Mandatory Palestine” it was the traumatised Euro-trash left over from the WW2 holocaust that invaded the area and upset the balance.
Therefore, comparatively, the occupying entity is perhaps more aligned with the original British East India Company weasling its way into the Indian sub-continent under effective ‘terrus nulius’ corporate law and rising to account for half of the world’s trade during the mid-1700s and early 1800s.
On this basis the better framing of the ME situation is corporate law, planation operations, and human-resource managment policy. Politics is just for the media show and tell.

Excellent summation. In that light, it’s probably more accurate to assert that conflict in the ME is but a symptom of the much greater issue(s) and that peace in the ME is but one of many prerequisites for world peace. The overriding issue being the unelected, unchecked, and totally malignant globalist corporate takeover of governments worldwide. Palestinians, Arabs, Israelis, and everyone else are but pawns in a much larger game.
Agreed. (… and of course the word should read as “plantation”)
Add my agreement to Disaffected and the Anon. Israel is merely a chest-puffing prestige project, the real threats to world peace are endless resource wars by global Anglo Zio Capitalism.
The Zionist ideology revolves around Jerusalem, a great world war, and then a Messiah, and Israel ruling the world. This is their deranged psychotic roadmap to world domination.
All of it is delusional self-fulfilling prophecy, based on preposterous interpretations of scripture.
So, while Western capitalism is a hindrance to world peace, Zionist warmongering is up there as well, in a class of its own.
Western capitalism does not believe that the apocalypse must be brought down on the world, the Zionists do.
Anglo Zio Capitalist resource-war mongers from Truman to Obomba have expressed their readiness for Armageddon by nuking Japan, giving nukes to Israel, threatening a surprise nuke strike against Russia, and preparing enough nukes to destroy humankind ten times over.
Capitalism needs the world to continue to exist, and it needs markets to constantly expand. The Capitalist wants to live a life of luxury, with many inferior plebs to lord over.
As a capitalist myself, ie. someone who is trying to make lots of money, the absolute worst thing I can imagine is the end of the world, Zionist-style.
There is still so much of the world where development can take place, so many untapped markets, so much more money to be made. Why on Earth would any serious seeker of capital want to destroy it all?
Zionism is a delusional cult of Satanic mumbo jumbo and death.
Capitalism has been around since the invention of money, since the first person realized having lots of money is awesome. If you say capitalism is bad, then you perforce imply that money is bad, which I don’t disagree with. But our entire civilization is based on money as one of its most fundamental elements, and there is realistically no way to move civilization off money.
My question has always been, why do the rich and powerful Zionist Jews do evil things? Why can’t they use their money to make the world a paradise for everyone? I my self am not even close to anything resembling “rich”, and yet I am constantly making efforts to make life better for everyone around me. Why are these billionaire Jews putting chemicals in our food, and telling us lies on TV, and promoting homosexuality and promoscuity, driving our youth astray, keeping us in debt slavery, killing us in stupid wars, etc, etc, when they have the kind of wealth and power to develop the entire world into a paradise of peace and prosperity for all?
I agree with Mr. Romanoff’s assessment in his latest installment, that some of our Jewish brothers make trillions in interest every year, and the likes of Mark Zuckerberg and the late Sheldon Adelson are mere peasants in front of them.
Imagine the unlimited prerogatives at your disposal for making the world a better place if you make trillions a year yourself, and you have a vast network of billionaires in practically every country in the world, with hands in every kind of economic activity and powerful lobbies controlling governments, etc. Honestly Dr, how long do you imagine it would take for you yourself to fix the world if you had that kind of wealth and power?
I wonder if you know the root of the word paradise? It comes from Greek, a loanword from Old Persian, which in Iran referred to gardens. The ancient Persians believed that it was their divinely ordained task to strive to make the world a beautiful paradise, and to this end they developed a technology called the qanat, which provided them with water in the desert, water which they used to turn the barren desert into beautiful lush gardens, gardens that would quickly become sanctuaries for wild animals, like birds, rabbits, deer, etc. The Iranians believed that God wanted them to protect and nurture all good life. But evil creatures that threatened the garden, ie. pests, had to be fought and driven off as a religious duty.
https://iranindepth.com/wp-content/uploads/Shahzade-Mahan-Garden-Pinterest.jpg — The result was gardens like Bagh e Shazdeh in Kerman.
Or Fin Garden in Kashan, and Eram Garden in Shiraz.
O’ how many gardens I’d plant if I had a trillion dollars!
israel should move away to the Antarctic, any other alternative is a waste of time.

Zionism is so much more than just what the Ashkenazim are doing in Palestine. That’s why Israel has no real borders and never will. That’s why the USA is ever expanding. What became the AngloZionist Empire is based on the notion that Europeans were the “chosen ones” who would range around the planet displacing indigenous people, stealing their land and resources, and finally destroying everything in some kind of final apocalypse where only the “chosen” would be spared the wrath of their warrior messiah.
Most Zionists in the USA are so-called Christian, not Jewish. Their end-times eschatology is based on a Zionist-inspired version of the Bible called the Scofield Reference Bible. This has led them to support completely what the Ashkenazim are doing in Palestine as Jerusalem figures into their perverse end-times scenario. Pastor John Hagee, founder of Christians United for Israel, was the speaker when Trump moved the US embassy to Jerusalem in 2018, “Jerusalem is the preordained capital of Christ’s 1,000-year empire, during which Christians and Jews (at least some of them) shall live in peace, after the unsaved (Democrats, mostly) have endured seven years of unspeakable horrors.” I’m sure Netanyahu smiled and nodded his head.
50 million of these folks almost re-elected Trump last November. They are the heart and soul of the Republican Party. Trump and Pompeo almost gave them WWIII the war they all pray for. It’s because of them that no version of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action will ever pass Congress. It’s because of them that Israel will never be held to account for its crimes against humanity. It’s because of them that Trump has a real chance of being re-elected president again in 2024.
All true Tommy. But as we seeing currently, the so-called “alternative” isn’t any better either. I have no doubt there will be a groundswell of support for Trump in 2024 – assuming he’s still alive and reasonably healthy and able-bodied – but as we’ve also just seen, the election process has been completely hijacked and is a total sham. The globalist elite, who are for the most part Zionist or at least pro-Zionist where it suits their interests, are firmly in charge now, and other than possibly in the case of total systemic collapse, I can’t imagine anything that would possibly unseat them. Zionist support is no longer a political issue in the west. All parties march in lockstep on that. The question, which has largely been answered already, is can any dissenting political voices possibly get traction going forward? The answer is of course, not when the so-called western “democratic” system has been completely captured by the hyper-wealthy globalist interests who represent Zionism.
It’s one thing for our “democratic” system to be captured by hyper-wealthy globalist interests. It’s quite another for that system to be hijacked by 50 million US Christian Zionist nutters who look forward to WWIII as the fulfillment of their crazy end-times apocalyptic death wish. That Trump has conned them into thinking that he’s their ticket to the Rapture fits right in with them also believing that the Earth was created exactly 6025 years ago because someone counted up the “begats” in the Scofield Reference Bible.
This is exactly why the First Amendment to the US Constitution specifically prohibits the formation of a state church. Millions of Europeans came to this continent on the run from the Inquisition and the Thirty Years War. They absolutely do not want these religious freaks telling them how to think and what to believe.
“It appears some of the most advanced forms of life are bipeds who may have occasionally sighted some distorted images of our folk whom they locally refer to as ‘gods'” said Harry to Bill as they hovered over Israel in their UFO discussing whether or not to come down and make themselves known to the earth dwellers.
That the earthlings have elected Biden, Johnson, Bibi and Morrison to repersent the highest level of a bipod existence has made the ‘gods’ somewhat reluctant to descend at this time.
“Not much improvement from those furry African things that swing from tree to tree,” said Bill. “Perhaps wait another century … mmm?”
Israel expanded through defensive wars, and on multiple occasions actually retreated and gave territory back. Not stating that clearly is disingenuous.
You believe Jordan and Egypt are sovereign nations? They are not. They are Zionist vassals, like the USA.
I don’t believe that. The point is Israel does not really have a choice, as Arabs demonstrated on multiple occasions that they will not accept peace.
In respect to “retreated and gave territory back” — it would be more correct in my view to say they negotiated post-kinetic conflict settlements that involved retreat and return.
However, I tend to agree that there are limited choices when dealing with “non-agreement capable” entities.
I also find that “Arabs” as a collective term is problematic and cannot be deemed as a trusted agreement-capable entity framework. The Russians find the Americans so. Many believe the Turks fit the cap. It is a complex of (lack of) goverance stucture among (and/or over) diverse ethnic tribes and innate cultural/historic dynamics.
The weakness in your position relates to reflexive relationships between Israeli existance (as a 1948+ corporation) and lack of a treaty negotiated in good faith. Until now Israeli leadership have played for time and space; not resolution. Wars appear, cui bono, engineered to advance apathied settler policy.
Some might suggest through all the smoke screens (and hysterical claims of Palestinian success in Gaza uprisings) that the next step-wise (1948, 1967, … 2021) growth surge strategy is now in progress.
Those who wish to claim the higher moral ground in this late 20th-century ‘Palestine Mandate’ deconstruction debacle need to demonstrate the hard evidence for claims of ‘good faith’ — especially when “we lie, we cheat, we steal” Pompeoian agencies are at work behind the scenes. ‘Precautionary principle’ (in truck loads) would not even begin to describe the rational response.
The main challenge here (and across the geopolitical spectrum) is to understand that our language for discussing political issues and resolutions is about as relevant now as ‘market economics’ theory is for Fed-funded political economy. We are dealing with an almost universal criminal class that have donned the black tie and coat-tail dressings of civilised diplomacy while running their nefarious affairs (from pedophilia to trans-national corporate deals) in plain sight and full view of a paid-for public media distortion programme.
Who is that really will not accept peace (to prevail)?
I think you’re right re the title. The “west” doesn’t believe in Alexander, much less Jesus of Nazareth. I love them both for better or worse.
Only submission to the Most High can get man moving in the right path. Bow down, place your head to the ground and say “Peace, your will be done.” It is hard for everyone at one time or other but even old uncle Satan can do it.
It is my faith that the most fervid hater can be turned by the most high.
Brother Blue Iconoclast
The Rapture is a pre-requisite for world peace (a rational, not a religious post, I am following new guidelines).
1. Yes, peace in the M.E. is a pre-requisite but Israel’s excessive paranoia against Iran keeps the U.S. engaged against Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, and Yemen, the Gazans and anywhere else the resistance tries to breath.
2. Christian Evangelical patronizing Israel, their fawning and slavish backing of Israel no matter what the situation, makes Israel worse in every manner. There is not a person or entity that will not abuse a blank checkbook. Christians should know this but this group will never change, hence a rapture is required.
Since when is the “Rapture” a rational notion? It’s based on the supposition that the planet will ultimately be consumed in a final conflagration where only “believers” will be spared, while the rest of humanity will be turned into cinder cakes by a wrathful warrior messiah.
Thankfully, Jesus told us, “The Kingdom of Heaven will not come with observable signs. Nor will people say, ‘Look, here it is,’ or ‘There it is.’ For you see, the Kingdom of Heaven is in your midst.”
@ Tommy Apeiron
The Kingdom of Heaven is indeed within us or should be rather but Jesus also said:
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. Matt. 24:14
The end is coming because people reject the gospel yes Tommy Apeiron? And if no rapture then what pray tell is this:
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. Math. 24: 38-40
Isn’t the real nonsense of the rapture teaching the idea that it will happen pre-trib? Meaning that we would see planes falling out of the sky with no pilots at the helm and cars flying off highways due to no drivers. lol This is the stupidity of such teaching. Rather it happens as the above scriptures reveal at the very return of Christ meaning essentially post trib, if that is there is anything left of the church on earth. Can God exact punishment upon the earth and not save his children from the wrath that is to come? If so then what is the point of the gospel and being saved?
“When I come will i find faith on earth? Jesus
Lots of words about things we know absolutely nothing about. “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of Heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.” I’m going with Jesus on this one, Gerry.
We especially shouldn’t be pushing our beliefs on other people like Christian Zionists are inclined to do. Many of them embrace the political concept that God divided the world between the elected and the unelected, that is, between His chosen few and everyone else deserving of eternal damnation. The country is politically polarized because Republicans insist on a worldview in which the Republicans are good, because they are good and the Democrats are bad, because they are bad. The First Amendment to the US Constitution specifically prohibits this sort of national theocracy. May Heaven preserve us all from the wrath of the dominionists and the chosenites.
@ Tommy Apeiron
Sure but a pagan Rome was Christianized because of the blood, sweat and tears of her faithful. Even St. Paul tried to convert King Agrippa:
“Then Agrippa said to Paul, “Do you think that in such a short time you can persuade me to be a Christian?”
Paul replied, “Short time or long—I pray to God that not only you but all who are listening to me today may become what I am, except for these chains.” Acts 26
Separating religion from politics is a difficult matter, a very very difficult matter for me. We are all motivated in different ways yes? I mean really who does one wish to be in power a Stalin or a John F. Kennedy? and if a Kennedy well then does one accept his Catholicism in spite of the fact one is a Protestant? A kingdom divided against itself will never stand yes?
And America has an even stranger problem given on her money are the words In God We Trust? Doesn’t that go totally and completely against the First Amendment? And this wasn’t a christian creation but rather a Freemason one? In God We Trust is very vague in that one has to ask which god is it really. The world has millions of ideas and idols to pick and choose from but Freemasons leave it up to the individual to believe whatever they like just that it has to be in a supreme being whomever and whatever you believe that to be? So in a sense we are already under a theocracy. Very strange goings on. If you think i’m wrong to think this way Tommy please look at this and ask yourself was it the Christian Zionists who built this:
This is a Masonic Temple dressed as an IRS building? And here is the Trump for you?
The sad and unfortunate thing about America however is the Christian Church is deceived by the work of Freemasonry. But we were warned about the fakes within our midst and the errors one such a one is of course the Christian Zionists.
You and I are pretty much in agreement, Gerry, but I would only add that millions of Europeans came to this continent on the run from the Inquisition and the Thirty Years War. They aren’t about to let a bunch of nutters like the Dominionists and the Christian Zionists tell them what to think and what to believe.
“Then he told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees; 30 as soon as they sprout leaves you can see for yourselves and know that summer is already near. 31 So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. 32 Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all things have taken place. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”
The fig tree is a metaphor for Israel. Some people think the putting out of new leaves refers to the setting up of the state of Israel. The generation born at this time are still alive today.
Even if the Ashkenazim were actually descended from the “Israelites” of old, which they aren’t, their claim to Palestine is about the same as that of other Europeans rampaging around the planet displacing the indigenous, stealing their land and resources, and engaging in all manor of ethnic cleansing in a different century. The rest of the world is sick and tired of it. China and Russia in particular won’t put up with it any more.
Nazi Germany had a stable and established – and state – policy above prioritized to many others: Namely, the “inferior” jewish race should be separated (and hence deported) from the “superior” Aryan race.
And so also does the state of Israel. They have separated Gaza and west bank, separated East Jerusalem people from west side and sets apart Arabs within his territory in a clear apartheid policy, supported by walls and wire fencing dotting all over the place.
The pressure on local palestinians begins in courts and ends up in bulldozers
tearing down of long inhabited homes in order to give space to the superior Jewish people. The peak of cruelty comes when evictions take place before dawn and homes are grounded to rubble. Yes, believe it or not, in past years this has been done more than once.
Their leaders say they have been chosen by jehovah 3000 yrs ago, haven’t they?
And to further and perfectly mimic the former executioners they deport families to the misery of refugee camps.
Our deepest tribute to the the jewish or israeli citizens of the Peace Now party in the same land. Our applause and tribute to the israeli soldiers who refuse and turn down orders to serve in military units in the occupied territories.
chinese media is reporting that Israel is now being officially investigated for War Crime by UN human right, of which Trump admin has remove USA previously and now only an Observer status, of course Israel has come out to say they wont cooperate.
China is now representing PAL in Geneva convention, I think?!
be well be safe
”Once it is established that Israel is an aggressive state and held responsible for killings of Muslims in millions, making them homeless in millions, and refused to live in peace and harmony with their neighbors. It is time for International Community to take action.”
Israel has been recognized as an aggressor and violator of international law for well over half a century, even though the self-proclaimed ”International Community” pretends otherwise. Bootlicking Israel is a respectable career choice while the choice of standing up to its blatant criminality and disgusting self-worship absolutely isn’t. Peace in the Middle East and, by extension, the world can never materialise while ”Israel” is still on the map.
a viable, independent and contiguous original Palestinian State with the pre-1948 borders
Exactly right. The Zionist entity erased from the page of history. Well said, Professor!
so the author wants more u.n action that never leads anywhere and for “the world” to fix the uk/zionist-pharisee created problems in occupied Palestine and let the zionist pharisees keep their stolen lands?
Sorry, i must say that i support the Palestinian youth and their armed resistance, that is The only way to peace in Palestine now.
The war criminals and their supporting pharisees made their choice, now i is time for Palestinian youth to take back what was stolen.
The pharisees that do not mind sharing a country/city with arabs can chose to stay, the war criminals and their supporters must be dealt with in other ways.
We need a solid and strong Muslim War Front. Iran, Turkey and and Lebanon are qualified to be a part of this front. Future long range precision weapons of this Front, Aero-Ballistic and Cruise Missiles, must be such as to be able to reach as far as Sweden, all of the Indian OCEAN, and East up to the western border of the South China Sea.
If only? If only? If only?
Why didn’t the Zionists just begin by asking the people of the Levant for a place to call their own? Why didn’t they just say look we to are Semities and Jerusalem is just as much ours as it is yours. We are people of the book and desire greatly to live where our ancestors lived. We are not asking the world just a place among you to raise our own children among the dust of our forefathers as you all are doing? An asking that of course should have begun with God Himself. To seek His will and providence in a return to the so called Holy Land? But I suppose that is too much to ask really given the horrors of WW2. That and of course as the above scripture from James says about our sin nature that battles within us. That and this battle sure has been a long one for the Jews though hasn’t it? Stretching all the way back in fact to Christ Himself as He had to watch and suffer Himself with the earliest of the Irgun as they terrorized the Romans. Unbelievable isn’t it those words ‘if history teaches us anything it teaches us nothing!!!’ I’m scratching my forehead really where will it end where that is the question and for some the writing was on the wall a long time ago:
Three core issues undermining this “just begin by asking the people of the Levant ” scenario:
1. Real Jews with authentic historic links to that area already lived there in relative peace and harmony.
2. The influx of mostly traumatised post-WW2 decendants of Ashkenazi 8-9th century converts to Judaism was engineered to avoid a defeated germany having to establish such a zone in it’s own domains. As was somewhat justified in the global discoure (of allies) that the ‘price’ was worth it and had in effect already been paid.
3. Following on from (2) and why the German’s hated the Jews amongst them to such an extent that a ‘final’ solution was concieved and operationalised — as distinct from the Jews living in the Ottoman and later British Mandated Palestine) is the point to consider.
I suspect the key to this can be found in the nature of Russian (converted) Jews. A constant inner dissonance that harks back to the nature of 8-9th century conversion of a failing ruling elite of the Khazars empire Rabbinic Judaism. Similar in dynamics to the old ruling elites of China holding out in separate political identity on Taiwan/Formosa these unhappy constantly agitate for a separate political state in which to imagine themselves separate — e.g., Jewish Autonomous Oblast in Russia.
This separist and ‘exceptionalist’ theme is played out in the 1964/71 “Fiddler on the Roof” musical/film. There appears to be an itch that can’t be scratched in this cohort that goes a long way back in time. In my view, it is this underlying condition of ‘software-harware’ mismatch that drives current cultish quest for existential resolution in some kind of cathartic end-days rapture on an old rock with a sacrificed red-heffer cow.
The psychological dynamics of this underlying condition do not necessarily fully explain or justify how this post-WW2 ‘need’ is captured and directed by global geopolitics focused on energy and resource control, but it conveniently fits a niche designed to continue, in one form or another, various subaltern relationships in the region. At the moment this has a Euro-American (Roman) flavor. Tomorrow it may have a Turkish, Egyptian or Persian flavor depending repeating macrohistory patterns.
The problem at the moment is not Jews wanting to live in Palestine mandates. It is a particular type of (convertee) Jewish mentality that lends itself to manipulation by larger agenda — basically, at the meoment, a rootless fascist/corporatist capitalist agenda that has no problems with changing operational/acting uniforms/skins from ancient swastika to ancient six-pointed stars. The clubs are the same (pun intended).
and then there are the Rockefeller’s and Rothschild’s who built for them and themselves this Masonic Temple for their coming new King Solomon and One World Government. More strange business, very strange business indeed.
and where Astana, Kazak fits into all of this just adds more strangeness and questions about what exactly is going on in England’s secret backrooms?
The author wrote, “Looking at the Israeli atrocities and brutalities against the Arab World since 1948, one can reach the conclusion that The Jewish State of Israel is Zionist, aggressive, and illegitimate. Based on its military might, it keeps on expanding and becoming bigger and stronger day by day.”
Here is a document on a debate conducted on March 18, 2021 from the HRC (Human Rights Council) about the human rights situation in Palestine that Israel was invited to attend but refused.
Speakers who presented opinions stated, ” . . . Israel was more interested in colonising Palestinian land than ensuring peace and security.</b."
Here is a source of historical documents about Palestine from UNISPAL (United Nations Information System on the Question of Palestine)
Amnesty International stated that Israel as the “occupier” is in violation of its responsibly to prohibit the deportation of a protected people under Article 49 of the IV Geneva Convention
(see: https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/campaigns/2019/01/chapter-3-israeli-settlements-and-international-law/ ) .
The Zionist abuses are documented, condemnations are spoken but nothing is done.
One has to wonder; why aren’t the United Nations Peacekeepers in Palestine?
Lastly, I offer a perfect example of a Zionist who by his own lips, believes he has the right to steal a Palestinian’s home. This is how all the Israeli settlers think about Muslim and Christian Gentiles in the occupied territories. Watch the embedded video and then read the entire article to experience the full arrogance of this criminal thug whose numerous acts of cruel barbarism have been largely ignored by the international community.
See: https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/yaakov-fauci-israeli-settler-new-york-sheikh-jarrah .
Mr. Fauci, a gelatinous mass of a “human being” has no compunction whatsoever about abrogating the human rights of others; only he and his ilk count, the rest are untermensch.
How is this any different than the bigotry and racism of the Nazis? It’s not; it’s the same manifesto that Hitler declared about the Jewish people in his seminal autobiography, Mein Kampf
Zionism is the continuation of Nazism and it must be extirpated with extreme prejudice.
I wholeheartedly agree with the spirit of this article. The time for talk by politicians is over. 70+ years is no joke, it’s an embarrassment to humanity. The UN & UNSC need serious re-calibration. Maybe the nations of the planet need to establish their own non-corrupt UN and not invite the obvious genocidal psychopaths.
I try to teach my children that, to make decisions on any matter, they must consider reality, first of all, because if they do so based on what they believe or the fashionable ideology, and this does not coincide with reality, the most it is likely that they will not achieve the desired objective or serve the interests of others (who may be the ones who have implanted those “ideas” in their mind)
So, when we have an Israel with the third most powerful army in the world, with nuclear weapons, that is not going to renounce historical Israel, no matter how much the rest of the world protests, etc., etc., and firmly based on an “ideology” Judeo-Christian who is in the collective subconscious of all “West” that supports them, and we continue with the same tune, so I am not considering reality.
(Obs .: 1º in the western churches the old is preached more than the new testament of the Bible; 2º The historical Israel was also formed by expelling, annihilating or subduing the people that previously existed, which most empires have done. )
If I want to force Israel, I am calling for the third (or fourth) and final world war, where each of us must take a position (and for something that does not concern us), and which I believe will lead to the destruction of civilization present but to the global ecosystem.
The Palestinian people have been used for interests that have nothing to do with what is necessary. In fact, they have mistaken their actions from the beginning, because if they had assimilated to the new state from the beginning, demographics, birth rates and “democracy” would have done the rest, and they would be a powerful plurinational state (the ultra-chauvinists know this and for this reason, “suddenly”, the idea of the two States or the confessional State arose)
What I believe is that Jerusalem should be declared a patrimony of all humanity under shared administration by a true UN (and if they want to install their embassies there, the truth does not matter much), and the rest of the territory a single State where each person, plus regardless of their origin: Jewish, Arab, Russian (more than 10% of the population), etc., have all the same rights and obligations.
The Jewish people are the chosen people to convey the revealed message, but some have believed that they are the message. When they understand this, the curtain will begin to open …
Completely out of touch. It’s almost as if the author has been living under a rock for two decades. The two-state solution, has never been a viable option, not in the past and much less in the present. It was always floated by the Zionists to acquire time for future thefts while legitimizing their presence. The inevitable outcome of a two-state solution would be the rapid disentigration of the Jewish colony. The only option has ever been the establishment of a secular state on all of historic Palestine, or war. In the end, the result will be the same.
It is a widely recognized truth that Jews are some of the most hated people on Earth. Beginning already with Adam and Eve in the Scriptures, they end up being driven out of most every land they reside. Has any Jew ever asked why is that?
Possibly the Hebrew word “timshel”, the subject of John Steinbeck’s novel “East of Eden”, may shed some light on the answer. Per Steinbeck the word translates to “thou may” in reference to choosing a path in life of either good or evil.
One does have a choice. While there are very many Jews who choose the path of good, and they do so many good things in and for the communities in which they live, and they are very much appreciated in the communities in which they live, there are, unfortunately, too many Jews who choose a path of evil. So, it goes with the followers of Zionism as is being seen in Israel today.
I had a good debate with a Palestinian one time asking whether the fighting in Palestine was religious or not. From the Palestinian perspective we concluded it was not. The issue is entirely secular. What else would one do if one is being deprived of one’s home, life, and liberty by evil people in evil ways. Violence after all is man’s last resort.
We all, not just Jews, when making choices in life, must always keep in mind the path of evil does have its repercussions.
The same forces causing conflict in the Middle East are also behind all the disruption in the US & EU and attempts to undermine and takeover Russia and draw China into conflict too.
There will not be peace until they have been neutralized.
Desde 2015 que uma nova arquitectura diplomática parece estar a ser, muitíssimo discretamente, construída na região do próximo oriente. Pelo menos esses são os subtis sinais exteriores que a um espectador longínquo -como este que escreve- aparecem.
Israel, pelo menos num horizonte de 20 a 30 anos, parece militarmente invencível. O Irão também.
A Arábia Saudita tem desesperadamente que encontrar um novo patrono; as Monarquias do Golfo, Idem; a Turquia, com passos à frente e passos atrás, está pouco a pouco a entrar no comboio eurasiático, quer o Erdogan queira, quer não;
Estão todos, evidentemente, condenados a entender-se, se não querem ser mais um espectáculo de fogo de artifício daqueles que podem ser vistos da Lua.
E, no meio do barulho, da poeira e da confusão, uma mãozinha discreta parece estar a levá-los todos ao quadrado, no xadrez, onde idealmente deverão estar para efectivamente se entenderem.
Eu diria que aí anda a mão político/diplomático/militar do Richelieu Boreal, que lenta mas seguramente -e habilmente- está a levar a região toda (Israel incluído) para o novo paradigma eurasiático.
E os Chineses, pacientemente, deixam-se ficar, pelo menos ostensivamente, de fora, até que seja preciso instalar a infra-estrutura necessária; quando o momento adequado ocorrer, avançam.
A coisa parece estar bem pensada e, muito possivelmente, vai ser descrita, pelos historiadores do Sec XXII, como uma das maiores e mais geniais manobras militar/politico/diplomáticas da História.
Que assim seja….
Só tenho pena, como Europeu Ocidental que sou, que os Países desta esfera estejam excessivamente cegos, ou manietados, para avaliar o seu interesse nacional de forma objectiva, e agir de acordo com ela.
Yandex translation by mod:
Since 2015, a new diplomatic architecture seems to be being built very discreetly in the Near East region. At least these are the subtle outward signs that appear to a distant viewer-like this one who writes.
Israel, at least on a horizon of 20 to 30 years, seems militarily invincible. Iran, too.
Saudi Arabia desperately has to find a new patron; the Gulf monarchies, Ditto; Turkey, with steps forward and steps back, is slowly getting on the Eurasian train, whether Erdogan wants it or not;
They are all, of course, doomed to understand each other, if they do not want to be another fireworks show of those that can be seen from the Moon.
And in the midst of the noise, the dust and the confusion, an inconspicuous little hand seems to be taking them all to the Square, in chess, where ideally they should be to actually understand each other.
I would say that there is the political/diplomatic/military hand of the Boreal Richelieu, who is slowly but surely – and skillfully-leading the entire region (Israel included) to the new Eurasian paradigm.
And the Chinese, patiently, let themselves be left out, at least ostensibly, until it is necessary to install the necessary infrastructure; when the right moment occurs, they move forward.
The thing seems to be well thought out and, quite possibly, will be described, by the historians of Sec XXII, as one of the greatest and most brilliant military/political/diplomatic maneuvers in history.
So be it….
I only regret, as a Western European, that the countries in this sphere are too blind, or too maniacal, to assess their national interest objectively, and to act in accordance with it.
The British Empire created the Israeli apartheid state with the Balfour Declaration.
And today the American Empire arms and sponsors the Israeli apartheid state to the tune of billions of dollars of military aid every year.
The Anglo Americans do so because the very existence of Israeli allows them to keep the Middle East in a constant state of low-intensity (and not so low-intensity) tension and conflict.
The Anglo Americans want to keep the Middle East “pot” always simmering and at a boil in order to prevent them from fully developing their economies and societies.
Development would enable the Middle East to stand on their own two feet and ultimately to drive out the Americans and their imperial allies from the strategically important Middle East region in general.
The granddaddy of Zionism, Theodore Herzl, justified the creation of Israel by explaining that Israel would serve as Western imperial outpost against the “barbarian” Arabs of West Asia: “There [in Palestine] we shall be a sector of the wall of Europe against Asia, we shall serve as the outpost of civilization against barbarism.”
Herzl’s Vision Realized: Israel as ‘Outpost of Western Civilisation in Asia’
However, the man from marketing, Netanyahoo seems to be entering his final days as the local puppet at the top.
A twenty-year old video magically “re-surfacing” this week… no doubt from the archives of some three-letter agency somewhere with investments in the next stooge to be.
“Netanyahu caught bragging in leaked video from 2001”
And this will happen only when Western control/dominance is ended. i.e: The malignance is removed.
A tacid solution to the Israel – Palestinian situation would be for a swap – whereby if the international community and Arab League asked and purchased from Egypt a suitable size block of territory south of the Israeli border (adjoining Gaza) that would get extensive housing & economic development spending tens $biillions in exchange for the Palestinians vacating most of the West Bank (except of a small area around east Jerusalem (relevant to Islamic religious purposes). Perhaps a long section along the coast there.
I dont know if there is any powerful historical or religious reason why the Palestinians need the West Bank for other purposes but this may be a alternative long term solution rather than Israel just wearing them down over time as has been happening.
If that territory was twice the size of their current holdings it may offset the loss.
Whether this is viable or acceptable proposal I dont know.
This is similar to what some of the Egyptian Pharaohs did with displaced peoples in ancient times.
I don’t live in Palestine, but if someone drew up some plan which stated that I had to move to another location, off my ancestral lands, I would fight to the death before leaving my land, especially if my land would then be parcelled off to Zionist Satanist baby murderers.
The Palestinians know what they must do. This is a fight to the end.
That is the just and right thing to do but what if it leads to complete destruction ?
What have they have achieved ? Perhaps if Israel paid for the territory that would be make such a proposal better.
Why give israel what it wants?
Its already stealing left and right with no concequences, now your proposing to just deport the remainder to egypt?
No surrender, not one step back!
I dont think the idea would be accepted or is fair but Its better than this constant grinding them down that is going on.
“Israel / Palestine – This Needs To Be Heard” (May 28, 2021)
Russell Brand speaks with Dr. Gabor Maté on the subject of Palestine and the current conflict.
timestamp 3:46 “who are the Palestinians “Cousins” a belief held by Ben Gurion?”
I so wish I could remember where I heard or read that when they started arrive in real numbers in 1948 some Rabbi who meant them and tried to reason with them was killed himself.
Now to hear this ‘cousins’ reminds me so much of some important worlds from a very important person.
“a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.” Math. 10:36 Yeah, I can relate!
Maybe the real answer lies in the last sentence third word from the end?
“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. When you are persecuted in one place, FLEE to another.
It is a well documented fact that the person closest to you is the one most likely to do you in. Statistics show the second most likely person to kill you is your own spouse. Thereafter is an immediate family member, then an extended family member, then a friend or a business partner, and last of all a total stranger. (So, who should you trust?) However, interestingly enough, the person who will most likely kill you is yourself; suicide. …..Food for thought.
@Robert Shule: “then a friend or a business partner, and last of all a total stranger. (So, who should you trust?)”
Apologies for inserting this old joke:
Daddy, what is business ethics?
Well, son, suppose a customer buys goods for $10 but gives me a $100 bill by mistake. There is this extra $90 in the till. Here comes the question of business ethics: Should I put this $90 in my pocket, or should I tell my partner?
