The Guardian covers Ed Miliband’s visit to Israel where he is pictured looking very sombre and no doubt being told that the Jewish holocaust misery was a fate much worse than anything other people may have suffered. He thanked Israel for providing sanctuary for his grandmother after his grandfather was killed. Touching, but who paid the price for his grandmothers safety? It doesn’t sit well with me that the Palestinians have suffered decades of inhumane treatment and in Gaza’s case, has been turned into a virtual open air prison camp to ensure grandma Miliband was safe. The West Bank is patrolled by Israeli supporting traitors who aren’t much better than the IDF.
Miliband skillfully avoided awkward questions which journalists tried to embarrass him rather than get a condemnation of the disgusting Israeli regime. It’s all a big game to the main stream media but it’s no joke for the millions living under the prejudiced and oppressive rule of the Israelis. I would liked to have asked Miliband about his thoughts on the irony of the Israel treatment of Palestinians having distinct similarities to that of the Nazis towards Jews during the second world war. Of course, if I had been well known to the public, these same cowardly journalists would have roundly condemned me for asking such an insulting question. I’d like to know what is so wrong with the question I would have asked?
Residents of Gaza aren’t free just like Miliband says his relatives weren’t free. Shortages of everyday items have been ongoing for six decades or more. Water is routinely diverted whilst the lush green lawns of the criminal ‘settlers’ have flourished. Then there is the raw sewage…From the illegal settlements into Palestinian villages. Electric (or lack of) is used as a weapon and even enterprising grid free communities who have had their solar panels paid for by the EU are punished by Israel by being forced to remove them. The Israeli’s have no moral compass when it comes to the Palestinians.
What possible reason could they use for doing this?
I’m tired of feeling obliged by Jews to empathise with them for the treatment they suffered at the hands of the Nazis seventy odd years ago when Israel inflicts such cruel living conditions on Palestinians today and have no intention of stopping. They have morphed into the mirror image of their most hideous oppressors.
The Israelis have just sanctioned the Palestinians for attempting to join international treaties and they did this because Israel refused to release prisoners they had previously agreed to. So now Israel will be withholding tax revenue collected by them for the PA with no mention of how long for. They’ve used this method numerous times, it’s a favourite of theirs.
Now if the US, EU and so on were interested in a fair and just settlement and they were independent negotiators there would be an immediate response. They would do exactly the same to Israel as they are doing to the PA …Stop funding them. It hasn’t happened thus far and it would be advisable not to hold your breath waiting for it to happen now.
This is typical of the preferential treatment Israel get from ALL the supposed impartial negotiators. They aren’t anything like unbiased. Their one and only agenda is to please Israel.
