America represents the worst of rogue governance. So does Israel. They menace humanity. They persecute their best. They honor their worst.
By Jonathan Cook - June 21st, 2013
One incident of racism...has triggered an uncharacteristic bout of Israeli soul-searching...Superland, a large amusement park near Tel Aviv, refused to accept a booking from an Arab school on its preferred date in late May. When a staff member called back impersonating a Jew, Superland approved the booking immediately.
Washington and Israel are longstanding partners. Both prioritize state-of-the-art WMDs and intercontinental delivery systems capability. Doing so threatens humanity.
Netanyahu reflects Israeli fascism. He's hardline, unstable, unscrupulous and dangerous. He prioritizes conflict and instability.
Mossad's longstanding ties to Verint, Narus, and other Israeli surveillance technology companies assures it access to information they collect. It's true wherever these companies operate. America has 16 active intelligence agencies. They operate the same way. Warrantless dragnet spying is lawless.
Abbas serves illegitimately as Palestine's president. Israel rigged his 2005 election. He was anointed, not elected. His term expired in January 2009. He refuses to call new elections.
Palestinian Jaffa is now Tel Aviv's Jaffa municipality. Six mass graves were discovered. They contain remains of at least hundreds of Palestinian victims.
Natan Blanc's an Israeli conscientious objector (CO). He's a refusenik. He and many others like him are called that for refusing to serve wrong over right. They resist proudly and courageously.
Israeli-style defense is offense. It hasn't been attacked in 40 years. It faces no regional threats now except ones it invents. It prioritizes violence, conflict and instability.
Israel gives chutzpah new meaning. War on humanity defines its agenda. It warned Russia about supplying Syria with sophisticated defensive anti-aircraft missiles. It said Israel will react in response.
Peace process initiatives were stillborn from inception. Decades of futility define them. Palestinians genuinely want peace. They deserve it and much more.
Israel's Operation Pillar of Cloud was naked, premeditated aggression.
Syria is Washington's war. It was planned years ago. It began in early 2011. No end of conflict looks near. Escalating it appears likely. Israel's very much involved. It abhors peace and stability. Its history reflects belligerence. It’s a direct threat. It borders Syria.
Preemptively attacking other countries is official Israeli policy. On May 4 and 5, Israeli warplanes targeted Syria. Doing so was preemptive, unprovoked, lawless aggression.
On May 11, thousands of Israelis protested publicly. They did so for social justice.
