Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke for approximately 50 minutes to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday. The politicians/sycophants greeted the Jewish leader with a four minute standing ovation along with another 26 standing ovations and 30 rounds of applause. They know who their master is!
He came, scolded him, rebuked and lectured him on how to never ever challenge, speak, or imply any change in America’s all out support of Israel even if it bombs an American Intelligence ship or kills American citizens. He came, kicked America’s butt, and received 29 standing ovations from his Congressional Knesset., more by far than any American President has ever received.
As has been the case for almost one hundred years of European colonialism, Zionism, and American Imperialism in the Middle East; the Palestinians have never been consulted or involved in the fate of their land and future as a people.All the conversation about Palestine was a conversation between America, Europe, Zionists, and Israel.
I’ve come to think that perhaps the Palestinians are not the party that should be most insulted, however. US President Barack Obama, visiting friends on the other side of the Atlantic, probably shook his head in resignation when he heard Netanyahu slight him before his own lawmakers.
“Israel wants peace. I want peace — we both agree that a peace based on illusions will crash eventually on the rocks of Middle Eastern reality, and that the only — the only peace that will endure is one that is based on reality, on unshakable facts…Palestinians will have to accept some basic realities. The first is that while Israel is prepared to make generous compromises for peace, it cannot go back to the 1967 lines, because these lines are indefensible, because they don’t take into account certain changes that have taken place on the ground, demographic changes that have taken place over the last 44 years.”
Incredible. A stern shakedown of an American President in his own office. In effect, Netanyahu tells Obama, I reject and rebuke everything you said in your speech and no one, no one in America dares challenge me for I own the Congress, AIPAC, wealthy Jewish Americans, and the Jewish Media. The hell with the American people.
