United States: Spiraling Into Hypocrisy and DarknessTim King Salem-News.com
Israel, where lies, propaganda and murder are subsidized by the U.S. taxpayer.
(SALEM, Ore.) - If the United States were to be attacked again, I doubt other nations would lose near the number of tears.
They did once, but then it only takes so many opportunities to prove to the world that you are only a semblance, a joke of your former self.
Blood drips from the hands of Israel and this country, and it is not biased to stand against murder and flagrant violations of International Law.
If Iran had hinted at doing such a thing, the western world would be standing shoulder to shoulder to condemn the action, but if Israel does it, murder is a different matter.
The United States is rotten to the core for this inability to simply stand up for right over wrong. That is how simple the matter is.
The vessel attacked by Israeli commandos was in international waters, by every account Israel chose to operate as a rogue criminal nation, once again.
It seems fair that reprisals are in order, it is probably just a matter of time. The world hopefully will come together in military action against Israel next time it does this, and it will not be the U.S. or England and it certainly won't be Norway or Italy. These are the two nations that sided with the U.S. in voting against a UN Resolution to investigate the incident without minimizing the gravity of the situation.
Norway and Italy also condone Israeli murder. Like the U.S. government, they in turn outwardly support it. But then Norway was Nazi during WWII and Italy is the land of fascist Mussolini. Man how the sides change when the U.S. is in the picture.
Israel needs to be stripped of its military hardware and capabilities, and Iran's demands for inspectors to be allowed to see Israel's hundreds of illegal nuclear weapons must be met. The Goldstone Report indicts Israel for War Crimes in Gaza during the winter of 2008/2009; that is an unaddressed matter thanks to Neti and Obama. The U.S. needs to pull back Israel's fleet of 352 deadly F-16 fighters. The U.S. needs to cut all support for this genocidal racist propaganda machine that steals land; it is a waste of time, and an abomination to our declining moral structure as a nation.
There are not two equal sides to any news story when one side is constantly committing murder against the other.
Video report on UN Resolution
The Human Rights Council today adopted a resolution in which it condemned in the strongest terms the outrageous attack by Israeli forces against the humanitarian flotilla bound for Gaza.
The attack resulted in the killing and injuring of many innocent civilians from different countries, and decided to dispatch an independent international fact finding mission to investigate violations of international law resulting from the Israeli attack.
The Council adopted a resolution, by a vote of 32 in favour, three against, and nine abstentions, in which it deeply deplored the loss of life of innocent civilians and expressed its deepest sympathy and condolences to the victims and their families.
The United States voted against, along with Norway and Italy, while other European Union states abstained, as did Japan.
The Council called on Israel to fully cooperate with the International Committee of the Red Cross to seek and provide information on the whereabouts, status and condition of the detained and injured persons and demanded that Israel release all detained men and material and facilitate their safe return to their homelands.
It also called on Israel to immediately lift the siege on occupied Gaza.
