Zionist could trigger third world war
The right of self-defense cannot be denied to any nation or community as per UN Charter. But, the question arises, who gave the right to Israelis to forcibly occupy the Palestinian land and then target them as and when it wishes so? If U.S and international community are conscious about the applicability of this right, have they ever asked Israel to abide by this in its dealing with Palestinians too. With the exception of few military wing commanders of Hamas, the bulks who have been killed during the attacks are women, children and innocent civilians. Is there any justification for such aerial strikes? Is there a balance of power and compatibility between military strength of Israel and Palestinians? No one finds any justification for the rocket attacks by Hamas, but, going for almost an all out attack against the innocent is not justified even. Everyone living in Gaza is neither part of Hamas nor militant.
Seventy-five Palestinians have been killed during the last five days in Gaza in addition to 600 injured; and Israel is planning to increase attacks and even start ground assault. Palestinians have, indeed, undergone the longest suffering and ordeal in the annals of history; and despite various UN resolutions and accords there seems to be not end in sight to the atrocities perpetrated on them.
Instead of expressing sympathy with the Palestinians, President Barack Obama said that Israel has the right to defend. The problem is that more than five American presidents promised to get the UN resolutions implemented, and that Palestinians would get their state, but they backtrack and do not pressurize Israel to honour its commitments. If America continues to give unqualified support to Israel, it will feel emboldened and will never remove settlements in the West Bank. Israel has been threatening to attack Iran's nuclear facilities, and if it happens, the stage would be set for the 3rd world war.
Today, the reason for turmoil, conflicts and death and destruction in most countries is Israel, which was created through the intrigue of the British at the end of the First World War. Since then Palestinians are facing death and destruction, and living at the mercy of Israel because whenever the latter wants blocks entry points at Gaza. Though history is replete with the acts of terrorism and state terrorism, but since 9/11, a new breed of terrorists has emerged.
And since then thousands of suicide bombers have carried out acts of terrorism in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere. The unvarnished truth is that the US suffered the terror of September 11 because of its support to Israel. It is an irrefutable fact that Israel had deliberately attacked USS Liberty with unmarked fighters and torpedo boats causing 174 American casualties in an attempt to blame Egypt and garner American support during 1967 war. It had tricked America into bombing other nations such as in the attack on Libya in 1986. The list is too long to be elaborated here.
Apart from other reasons, the date the terrorists chose for attacking WTC and Pentagon on 9/11 shows their true motivation, because 11th September is the anniversary of the League of Nations proclaiming the British Mandate in 1922 that paved the way for the creation of Palestine. The date represents the first physical step toward the implementation of the Balfour Declaration and the establishment of Israel. But this fact was never brought to light because international mass media are owned or dominated by Jews. The British Mandate of Palestine was given by the League of Nations to the United Kingdom to administer the territory comprising today's Jordan, Israel and territories governed by Palestinian Authority and formerly governed by Ottoman Empire. But what was Balfour Declaration? This was in fact a letter dated November 2, 1917 from British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Lord Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community for onward transmission to the Zionist Federation, on the partitioning of the Ottoman Empire in the aftermath of the World War I.
The letter stated the position agreed at a British cabinet meeting on October 31, 1917 that "British government supported Zionist plans for a national home in Palestine with the condition that nothing should be changed, which might prejudice the rights of existing communities there". On 14th May 1948, the UN, the successor to the League of Nations, implemented the 1947 UN Partition Plan and established the state of Israel. With backing of the West, Israel continued usurping the Palestinian land, and balked at UN resolutions giving the Palestinians the right to have an independent state. In July 2004, after 37 years of 1967 war, an international court had declared the occupation of Palestinian lands by Israel as illegal. International Court of Justice in its judgment had declared the West Bank barrier built by Israel as illegal, and Israel was under an obligation to cease forthwith the construction of wall built in the occupied Palestinian territory including in and around Jerusalem, and to demolish the raised structures.
The court had called upon the UN General Assembly and Security Council to take action to halt the construction work, but to no avail. The moot question remains unanswered whether any country has the right to invade and occupy the other's land? What is the legal position of Palestinian lands - Gaza Strip and the West Bank - when the UN charter does not allow such occupation? Anyhow, despite UN resolutions and many accords, Israel is not inclined to implement any resolution or implement any accord. The Oslo Accord was based on the principle of "Land for Peace", and the US was a guarantor for implementation of the agreement. But Israel would not implement it. Even former President Bush's 'road map' had been shredded into bits by Israel, and Sharon had unilaterally announced to withdraw from Gaza Strip, where Israel forces continued moving in and out with the tanks and armoured cars killing hundreds of Palestinians.
To prove that Palestinian National Authority (PNA) is incapable of running the affairs of the state, the US and the EU had cut off aid to the Palestinian people, while Israel refused to hand over millions of the Palestinian National Authority's own customs duties, which was nothing but downright theft. Having that said, it is too well known that the Israeli lobby afflicts US Congress and the President. The immense power of the Jewish lobby is a proven fact, and nobody on Capitol Hill will dare defy this all-powerful lobby. Even of the most powerful US Senators in American history William Fulbright had CBS's 'Face the Nation' program had bluntly said: "Israel controls the US Senate". Security of Israel is the cornerstone of the US foreign policy. When Afghanistan was bombed during Clinton's presidency, it was to kill Osama bin Laden because he wanted that Israel should vacate Arab lands. Even when the US attacked Iraq, it was to destroy a powerful Arab country that could have offered a palpable threat to Israel.
