While the US “Fourth Estate” MSM in collusion with the” Deep State” is busy disseminating U.S. best interests by by engaging in damaging Russophobia hate and fear mongering so-called “news” based on unsubstantiated content (see “The Deep State Goes to War With President-Elect, Using Unverified Claims, as Democrats Cheer” by The Intercept’s illustrious Glenn Greenwald whose reporting on the NSA for The Guardian earned it the Pulitzer award) , the real news about the exposure of major consequence of the scandalous threat made by an Israeli diplomat of the Israeli embassy in London who was caught discussing the possible “take down” of a British minister for his criticism of the international law violating settlements in illegally Israel occupied Palestine, remains scandalously largely ignored in the US media.
This is even more astounding during these critical times when the UN Security Council in its historic Resolution 2334 has, without opposition even from the United States, thanks to President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, excoriated Israel for its continuing violation of international law by its brazenly defiant continuing construction of illegal settlements, something which also constitutes a violation of the Geneva Fourth Convention.
This comes at a time when, incredibly the President “elect” who lost by 3 million votes when the votes are counted on the democratic one man/one woman vote basis, has in conjunction with advice from his orthodox Jewish son-in-law, Jared Kushner…, decided to pick a man for the post of U.S. ambassador for Israel the colossally unqualified David Friedman.
David Friedman is an ultra right-wing, fundamentalist, Zionist extremist who is hell-bent to raise hell by his stated objective to move the United States embassy, against the most fundamental interests and principles of the United States from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
No country in the world has dared to even suggest such an illegal move which would have literally catastrophic consequences and would destroy all possibilities for a final peace plan to take effect, and therefore this represents the groundstone for the take over of all of Palestine by what will then become the Apartheid “state” of Israel, an unsustainable entity in a world which long ago dissolved its last Apartheid state of South Africa (notably Israel engaged in lucrative deals with said racist white supremacist state and went as far as proliferating and assisting in assembling in said Apartheid state the technology for the weaponization of nuclear energy – see “The Unspoken Alliance : Israel’s Secret Relationship with Apartheid South Africa” by the brilliant and dedicated Jewish author Sasha Polakow-Suransky ).
This provocatively insane groundstone can have in effect the potential to drive Israel into the ground. With “friends” like these, Israel needs no enemies.
Decent, rational, humanistic, Jews globally categorically oppose this Zionist right-wing fundamentalist destructive mentality which maintains the myth that God told Moses in Deuteronomy 6 :10-12 that he can lead his people to a place where there are trees its people did not plant, buildings which its people did not build, and simply take it all over, since they are “God’s chosen people”, and Palestine is “their promised land”. In fact, Jewish scholars such as Shlomo Sand, have spent years of research to trace the monotheistic religion origin to Zacharia, a province of Kazakstan. Shalom Sand’s book on this subject became an international best seller and is titled “The Invention of the Jewish People”,
Be it as it may, the move contemplated by Trump & Son-in-Law Kushner (?!) / Friedman would constitute that proverbial straw which would add nothing but fuel for a major explosion in the Middle East which could spread well beyond, at a time when that region and the world need nothing more that “peace sweet peace” by “diplomacy sweet diplomacy” coupled to an end to all wars and the total elimination of all nuclear weapons, something which the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. actually had started and which is a fundamental obligation spelled out in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) which Israel, BTW, never signed, although not only clandestinely developed an arsenal of nuclear WMD’s via a secret agreement between disgraced President Nixon and the Golda Meir, the Israeli PM who had the temerity to say “ there is not such thing as a Palestinian people “.
To The Washington Post’s credit it did, today on January 13, 2017 publish and article by William Booth and Carol Morello on this subject titled “ Talk of Moving U.S. Embassy in Israel Brings Dire Pleas ”
Well, to cut to the chase, the objective of this APNFD is to bring to the attention of the AP readers the ongoing investigations into the scandal of an Israeli diplomat at the Israeli embassy In London literally suggesting a “take down” of one or more British ministers / members of parliament for their exercising, commendably, their right to criticize the criminal settlement buildings in the Israel illegally occupied and annexed Palestinian West Bank and the 1967 Israel invaded Palestinian East Jerusalem.
The Labour party has called on an influential committee of MP’s to now investigate the “take down” threats against MP’s made by israeli “diplomat” (?!) Shai Masot, who was recorded talking to Conservative MP Robert Halfon’s former chief of staff, Maria Strizzolo, at a restaurant in Kensington .
Ms. Strizzolo has resigned.
Alan Duncan, a Foreign Office minister, was named in the conversation as one of the MP”s who should be targeted.
Crispin Blunt, the chairman of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee, was requested to undertake an investigation.
Mr. Blunt told the news website Middle East Eye, that there is a need to curb any Israeli ‘interference” in British affairs adding that “What we cannot have is Israel acting in the UK with the same impunity it enjoys in Palestine. ”
It is noteworthy that the news of this scandal has been objectively reported in such objective and ethical media as Israel’s Haaretz, Israel’s The Times of Israel, and in Britain’s The Independent, inter alia.
The Independent published an article on this subject on January 12, 2017 titled “ Labour Calls for Parliamentary Investigation into Israeli Official’s Threat to “Take Down” Critical British Minister ”
The Washington Post has not yet given any coverage on this major occurrence.
Instead of adding fuel to fire, the U.S, and the President elect have the moral duty to become part of the solution and not part of the problem and the first step must be order Israel to abide by the UN Resolution 2334 and to end once for all its assumption that it is a so-called “exceptionalist” state, since such an entity is a product of the imagination, such states do not exist in the real world.
One way to end Israel’s obstructionist and outlaw behavior is for the U.S. to end immediately its enabling role in the repression since 1967 of the autochthonous human rights of the Palestinians by providing Israel with $ 10 million dollars per day of our hard-earned tax funds. The British repression started in 1948 when it facilitated the arming of the Jewish Zionist and non-Zionist immigrants from the West to Palestine after the German Nazi defeat by the Soviets primarily and its allies the French and the British.
Furthermore. as Israel will most probably be charged soon for its war crimes, by the International Court Justice, most particularly for the most recent Summer of 2014 Gaza massacre which killed close to 3 thousand mostly innocent unarmed civilians and that comprises some 500 children, and crimes against the humanity of the Palestinians by the odious politics of incarcerations of thousands without trials, collective punishments against the families of reprisal fighters driven by exasperation to violent attacks on Israelis, and therefore the United States is potentially going to be charged with the complicity in these crimes.
Therefore now more than ever, after the UN Security Council Resolution 2334 it behooves the U.S. to reassess its policy towards Israel.
An all day conference of some 400 + scholars, journalists, government officials such as foreign service, intelligence, military services and others from across the world, will take place in Washington, D.C. at the National Press Club on March 24, 2017 from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
The title of the event is “ 2017 Conference – The Israel Lobby and American Policy.
This is the third annual conference of the kind which this writer has attended at said prestigious National Press Club.
