…from PressTV, Tehran
[ Editor’s Note: Our international institutions once again put on display how debased they can be. Here we have Israel, who is not a member of the International Criminal Court, putting on a full court press to have prosecutor Bensouda of Gambia removed.
If you look for outrage in the world press, please let me know in the comments if you find any. We must never miss the opportunity to rub in the faces of those who claim to hold themselves up to high and honorable conduct, that they tend to go on the attack when there is little downside.
The shadow of Israeli geo-political thuggery has been over us for a long time. As an added disgrace for Americans, we even pay for the cost via our guaranteed funding with no questions asked. Our own US Corps of Engineers even helped construct the wall around the Gaza prison camp, something unknown to 99 out of 100 US veterans.
Whether we have a Democratic or Republican administration seems to have little difference in our Israel policy. Yes, Obama did take a stronger stand than most US presidents, especially when he withdrew the Aegis destroyer from the coast of Israel. The Aegis’ radar was the heart of Israel’s Iron Dome rocket defense system.
That allowed a lot more of the Gaza retaliatory rocket strikes to get through and get Israelis angry at Bibi. Whether Biden will try to defend us from continued Israeli aggression is anyone’s guess, but his not having had a call with Bibi yet is sending a message that he is way down on Biden’s ‘to do’ list.
I am hoping that when Biden does engage, it will be to assist the Palestinians in Covid relief, which the Israelis have brutally withheld from them as part of their never ending punishment for not accepting the Zionist yoke on their necks… Jim W. Dean ]
