A South African Lesson: Why "Israel" is Doomed to Fail
rebel1916: Every time the right-wing regime of Israel led by warmonger Benjamin Netanyahu makes a move to consolidate its apartheid policies, one inevitably is reminded of its former partner in crime, apartheid South Africa.
The former National Party, whose claim to infamy was racism, discrimination, injustice, a brutal security apparatus – all rolled into an ideology known as apartheid, kept trying to market itself as a “democracy”. It insisted that in defending western capitalism and Christian values, it was a bulwark against communism. Of course, it succeeded for a long while in persuading its imperial allies to overlook crimes against the indigenous black majority. Ultimately it crashed despite believing that its power was indestructible. Exactly what Netanyahu is doing.
Marketing Israel as an indispensable ally of the West in its “war on terror”; the “only democracy” in the Middle East; defender of western values; bulwark against Iran and Islam and all the while behaving with impunity and in defiance of all known international conventions in the knowledge that the lifeline it enjoys from America in particular, renders it indestructible.
chronology: Rebel there is no comparison with South Africa and Israel. The Jewish people have lived in Judea for 3000 year's. The Jewish people had a officially recognised Nation in Judea 2500 years ago. Jewish people have lived in the Judea district none stop for 3000 years.
Roman Authorities became involved in a Human Rights dispute with the Judean Government around, 1800 years ago. Like America Rome often insisted on Human Rights being respected. A Roman Law was issued making the castrating of slaves illegal. The Jewish leaders at the time refused to cooperate with Rome and the Roman Government dismantled the Jewish State. 1948 saw Israel again established, and with around ,500 Billion dollars of U.S. Aid since 1948 little Israel has survived.
It is puzzling why Americans have such a devoted fanatical love for Israel, but hey, America can hang out with whoever it wants to. Israel would not last a year without Washington DC. The only reason Rome had any interest in the place was because it was the corridor that Roman Grain supplies passed through from Egypt.
It is not so much apartheid today as the security situation that causes segregation in Israel. American politicians also have no interest in calling for Human Rights to be respected in Israel. The Roman's were not as indulgent as Washington DC. When Jewish folks refused to stop castrating slave's they were stomped on like cockroaches by Roman Legions.
edmund_carey: Wow. This guy can't be all that confident about his position. I answered him at some length, and instead of responding he just deleted it.
Guess the missing letters in this term for that procedure: cow**d*ce.
Fractured fairy tale: Oh Bull Its Apartheid . Its not a Security Situation . Its been made out that way by the Isreal Government. And people reapt it
Cos it Appeals to there Egotistical nature
edmund_carey: All I want is Israel left alone and allowed to live in peace. That hasn't been done for two minutes together since the country was founded.
Fractured fairy tale: Haig International Law Courts In Hagg Netherlands . You know where the Nuremberg Trials were . Big Movement to move it .
Fractured fairy tale: If Isreal was under threat Edmond Don't you think The IDF would join in the Fight against neighbouring Countries. to save it Insted of letting everyone else do it . Only thing they do is Share Dodgy Intelligence. That leads to all these conflicts
edmund_carey: Oh, the Hague. Just say International Court of Justice. If Israel gets taken there, so will its accusers. It will be a vicious circle.
The IDF has nothing against neighboring countries. Its problem is Hamas, and Hezbollah, and the PA. You will notice that the IDF goes into action when Israel is attacked. It never initiates anything.
Fractured fairy tale: Blah blah blah Hamas and hesbolar
What were we Doing in Afghanistan and Iraq then . And trying to oust Syrian leadership
Fractured fairy tale: RIDF could spare a Thousand Troops to go to South America last year are Hesbolar hiding there too . Or was it Hamas
edmund_carey: Syrians tried to oust the Syrian leadership, not "us". The United States merely went to their assistance. Syrians were trying to realize in their own country what they hoped were the benefits of the Arab Spring. Their dictator was using live ammunition against demonstrators, and jailing his opponents. Israel had nothing whatever to do with that. Afghanistan was being governed by a cadre of religious fanatics under who rule teachers were dragged into the street and beheaded for the crime of teaching girls. The country was playing host to a terrorist organization which had slaughtered three thousand defenseless American civilians. That's what's called a "casus belli" in international relations. Israel had nothing whatever to do with that either.
