The Pariahs of Palestine

In a sane, decent, and just world, the shoe is on the other foot and it is Israel that is the outcast.

This proves one thing if nothing else: in the hierarchy of world government, Zionists trump Globalists -- which explains their seemingly unexplainable servitude to the that land-stealing, mass-murdering, war criminal regime.

"A people denied justice

Isn't there something seriously wrong with our world when a people who have been wronged for over a half-century are treated as pariahs? Wherever the Palestinians turn, they find every door shut. Whatever they do to obtain even a fraction of their rights, they face insurmountable obstacles. Time and time again, they pursue international justice only to discover that it doesn't exist for them. Recognized legal channels lead them nowhere. Promises made that their own state is on the horizon are consistently broken. When, in frustration, they turn to violence, they are branded as terrorists....

Where does this sorry state of affairs leave the Palestinian people? The answer is precisely nowhere. When they are consistently failed by international bodies and the international legal system, is it any wonder that they have resorted to other methods on occasions?

Those who believed that President Obama would make a difference are sorely disappointed. He has turned out to be a man of fine words and little action. Indeed, like his predecessors, he is perpetuating his country's hated double standards. While he calls for a nuclear-free Middle East and wags his finger at Iran for enriching uranium on the one hand, he blesses Israel's policy of so-called nuclear ambiguity on the other.

In the meantime, the Palestinians are no closer to having their own state than they ever were. The illegal apartheid wall still snakes through the West Bank. Illegal Israeli colonies are still being expanded and Gaza is still being illegally blockaded. What's more, the international community's failure to hold Israel to account for war crimes gives it virtual carte blanche to launch more attacks.

But first things first....
