If you’ve been paying any attention, you already know that last week, while Joe Biden was in Israel to supposedly help move along the peace process – Israel declared, as though by accident, that it was ‘allowing’ the construction of 1,600 settler housing units in East Jerusalem.
Now the Israelis know damn well that the more they try to claim East Jerusalem, the less there’s any chance of peace. The international consensus is quite clear on this point – and all observers and negotiators agree that for any two-state solutions to take place, East Jerusalem would have to remain Palestinian. In essence, the announcement was not just an ‘insult’ as Hillary Clinton announced – and not only a ‘slap to the face’ as most US-based media called it – but a clear indication that Israel has no peaceful intentions whatsoever and that anybody who tries to push it towards establishing peace (even if it’s the US government) will be absolutely, and quite rudely ignored and ridiculed.
It’s not as if Israel needed to make the point, despite the fact that many people, through a contortion of logic, still think of Obama as being a liberal peace-seeker, the fact is that all along he has played the Zionist game, he knew damn well what he was doing when he promised Israel an ‘all-Jewish Jerusalem months before he was ever elected to lead what is supposedly the sole remaining super-power. He was making it clear that Amerika, under his leadership, would bend over backward to accommodate Zionist aspirations – whether these involved occupation, murder, or genocide.
Apparently, after having called last week’s announcement an ‘insult,’ – Clinton is now choking on her own words. It’s clear that Israel will not only not tolerate intervention in its war-mongering but will react badly to even the implication that somehow their actions last week were, in fact, at the very least, an insult.
Clinton’s been bitch-slapped.
How else would you explain her statement today, dismissing any possibility of a ‘crisis’ in relations between the USA and Israel? How else would you possibly explain that two days after her country and her president had been insulted, slapped, kicked in the nuts by proxy, she is now doing her damnedest to make it clear that she’s not ‘really’ pissed off at Israel?
I mean – just because somebody ‘insults’ you doesn’t mean you don’t love them, right?
Just because somebody makes you look like a fool regularly, makes you look like an idiot for even trying to present the ‘appearance’ of an honest broker, mocks your attempts at establishing even the most basic of negotiations…surely that’s no reason to be pissed off at them, right?
Note that all this bending backward, all this back paddling is happening because Israel itself called the situation a crisis!
Is the USA really that afraid of the Zionist thugs over there in Tel Aviv? Is the US government so indebted to Israel that even the appearance of dignity is no longer allowed it?
Are Israel’s claws so deep into the back of Amerika that Amerika cannot even seem to complain when it’s slapped in the face, kicked in the nuts, mocked in the eyes of the world?
Apparently, that’s the case.
