What the World Needs to Know Now about the Arab-Israeli Conflict
As Prime Minister Netanyahu flies to Washington to meet His Phoniness, here are some points to bring up to the world.
The US president during the Holocaust was Franklin D Roosevelt, known as liberal and a progressive, like Obama. FDR made no effort to help the Jews in the death camps, the labor camps, or on the railroads on their way to them, or the Jews in the ghettoes, as in Warsaw. The British policy was that their BBC "news" outlet could not report on the Holocaust until too much became known about it in London and continuing to ignore it would have lost credibility for the bbc. FDR made a few minor gestures in the last half of the war which supplied little help to the Jews. This was done under considerable public pressure.
The UK issued the "White Paper on Palestine" in 1939 which in effect revoked unilaterally the UK's mandate from the League of Nations to foster development of the Land of Israel as the Jewish National Home. This was a violation of international law, as the League's Permanent Mandates Commission concluded. But the UK was not moved to allow Jews into Israel when the Jews most needed a home, even a temporary refuge. This was a precedent of a major Western power violating a solemn commitment to help the Jews. Israel can expect nothing better from Washington. Tony Blair in facts speaks of his pet project of another Arab state in the Land of Israel, as if the UK had never betrayed the Jews so severely.
The vehement anger in Washington and London against Jews settling in/moving to/ Judea-Samaria, parts of the internationally designated Jewish National Home, is RACISM. It is simply the old Judeophobia dressed up in fake anti-imperialist garb. Obama as a Black man should be the last US official to push this Judeophobic, RACIST policy. However, it is undeniably useful to the anti-Jewish racists that they have a brown-face as their front man to hide behind. It is forgotten that the US Govt energetically worked to bring Black Americans into neighborhoods that were purely white, including ethnic neighborhoods of Irish, Italian, and Polish Americans. This was all done for the sake of anti-Racism. Why can't US officials today realize and admit that their policy on Jews in Judea-Samaria is anti-Jewish Racism?
If these foreign policy paladins are unaware, their anti-settlement policy allows the Arabs to continue their age-old oppression of Jews. Condoleeza Rice tried to pretend that somehow the Jews were racist to the Arabs. In fact, throughout history since the Arab Conquest, the Arabs have had the upper hand and have oppressed, exploited economically and humiliated Jews. Tony Blair and Obama ought to be informed of this historical reality. Maybe they really don't know.
Anti-Zionism is the anti-imperialism of fools.
