29. Stop U.S., EU support for Israeli genocide

 

The brutal Israeli aggression and airstrikes on Gaza continue and the helpless Palestinians have no hope of international intervention. The U.N. Security Council has called for a halt to the violence but is reluctant to take immediate action. The U.S. and EU policy of double standards continues to condemn Hamas as an obstacle to peace for its refusal to accept Israeli occupation.

The Israeli attack on Gaza is far from that state’s first act of aggression. It has always been a nation of assassins throughout history.


Noam Chomsky in his recent visit to Gaza described it as hell. Jewish bloggers and prominent human rights activists have denounced Israeli brutality in Gaza, but words are meaningless and do nothing to stop the violence. When all is said and done, Israel continues to have the support of the United States and the European Union.

The support of the West is what emboldens Israeli occupiers to continue their apartheid rule. The myth that has been told in the West to justify the Israeli occupation of Palestine is that Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and that the Palestinians are terrorists and the Arabs are threatening neighbors. These claims are far from the truth: Syria is a defanged state, Egypt and Jordan have peace treaties with Israel and Lebanon is at the mercy of Israeli attacks.
