Why the West’s support for Israel is flawed

Rate this post

The US and UK support for Israel is way past its sell by date.

Biden’s response of “unwavering support for Israel” was chilling to hear .

He and Sunak have learned nothing from history!

I understand the violent attacks by Hamas because they have been side-lined by the UK, France, the USA and the UN since 1948.

I do not support their violence, nor do I understand why Israel’s president Netanyahu is not in jail for corruption, but there you are, that’s the way the world seems to work at the moment.

Israel’s Defence Minister Yoav Gallant:

I have ordered a complete siege on the Gaza Strip. There will be no electricity, no food, no fuel, everything is closed. We are fighting human animals and we will act accordingly.

We are now watching genocide enacted by god’s supposedly ‘chosen ones‘.

To summarise:

The Israeli government has made 46 huge illegal land grabs of Arab Palestinian territory since 1948 and the Israeli Arab population’s territory has been reduced by around 80 percent.

Those 46 land grabs have been clearly stated as illegal by 46 UN resolutions condemning them, BUT the USA has vetoed those resolutions 46 times.

Since 2005 it has got a lot worse.

The Gaza strip is the most overpopulated area in the world and has become a prison camp for two million Israeli Palestinian Arabs.

Did you hear that on the BBC over the last few days?

No you did not. That fact is perhaps thought too nuanced for today’s vanishing news audience.

The Single State Solution

I wrote in detail about this in 2014 where I and many others (Jew and Arab thinkers) supply the only answer that makes sense which is “The Single state Solution” and where I point out the ridiculous failure of any two state solution.

It is a long read but you might draw the same conclusions having read it.

Here is an article, agreeing with my article’s title, written in 2021 by a Harvard professor of international relations.  Again, a longish read, but this ‘situation’ must be solved.

The only way that is going to happen is with Netanyahu gone and the USA supporting the Palestinians and Israelis equally; yup I know that ain’t happening anytime soon BUT it must happen sometime.

However it looks like Trump might actually make it to the Whitehouse!

HL Mencken was prophetic in 1921 when he said: –

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

More on‘ that in  ‘Politics is broken, BUT we might just be able to fix it‘ 😉
