Israel Condemns EU Move?

Times-Online Article

What a strange title for an article! The EU makes a move that says that its member nations agree that Israel cannot continue to defy international law and past UN resolutions, no matter that the US keeps giving its lawlessness unconditional support. But Israel condemns the EU! That is comical. Israel condemns the UN for its anti-Israel bias. Israel condemns Amnesty and Human Rights Watch and the International Red Cross for its anti-Israel bias. Israel condemns .... any institution that dares to criticize its policies. Why is everybody picking on poor little defenseless and innocent Israel?

The discussion should be whether or not the US will continue to be the lone backer (disregarding the support of international powerhouses like Tuvalu and Micronesia) of this rogue nation's racist, colonialist and terrorist policies. With our Congress and the Bushes and Obamas and Clintons of the world, Israel has the support of our government through AIPAC's meddling and blackmail tactics. The ignorant people in our country still support Israel, the Christian Zionists, the FOX news fanatics, the people still propagandized by the same neocon institutions that led us into Iraq on a pack of lies (media and the prominent neocon think-tanks), that have tried to repeat the tactics on Iran, the same ones who wanted to intervene in Libya and now Syria.

But Bibi selected Ron Dermer as his new ambassador, so don't expect any willingness to budge from the ever-isolated Israel.

Peter Beinart on Ron Dermer

Daily Beast Article

The selection, by Bibi, of an American Jewish neocon as Israel's Ambassador to the US will likely ruffle many feathers in Washington. The well-written article by Peter Beinart gives a nice background on Ron Dermer, and summarizes very nicely what we can expect from the Israelis in regards to"peace" talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis. The selection of Dermer speaks volumes to the true agenda of Bibi, and is not surprising at all, given Bibi's positions.

Syria's Rebels

BBC Article

I have been telling friends and colleagues for months about Syria : The US should not get involved, that we are making the same mistakes we made when we armed the Libyan rebels to overthrow Qaddafi (the same rebels later attacked the US Embassy in Benghazi), that we are making the same mistake as when the CIA trained and funded the mujahadeen, which proved to be the core for al queda. The Nusra Front openly proclaimed their loyalty to al queda months ago. And then the US media discussions began, to arm or not arm the rebels. And US politicians came out in droves, like John McCain et al, to support arming the Syrian rebels. If people think the US should intervene in Syria by providing arms and funds to the rebel groups, this is the type of people that will lead Syria. Assad's Syria might not be the best Syria, but it is secular and not a radicalized Islamic state. Who will rule after Assad's overthrow is anyone's guess but, to be sure, groups like Nusra Front will have significant influence.
