Divine Intervention

Apparently, Obama wants to stop Israel expanding its illegal settlements, apparently!(1) Sounds good, but what does this mean exactly? Are the settlements , nevertheless, to remain on the West Bank and to remain connected to Israel with by a network of roads that criss cross Palestinian land and effectively halt any territorial integrity of that land? Still, the charade is being played out in Jerusalem and Washington and being played out to the extent where we have one supposedly upsest Zionist, the Science Minister Daniel Herschkowitz, likening the “hype” man’s decree, which our “gobblydegookers” argue will prevent the “natural growth” of the settlements, to some Pharaoh’s declaration that “Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river,”(2) Now the deitic reference is a little bit lost on me here but the “good” man is, no doubt, refering to something that some Pharaoh said, some thousands of years ago, in reference to the Jewish people. Sometimes, I really think I am on the wrong planet! Surely, surely, it is time to put these lunatics in their place! Of course, those lunatics are not fools and they realise that when the “natural growth” of the settlements has been curtailed, Zionistan will have made its one big compromise and with that compromise it will be time for the “hype” man to offer the Palestinians a bit less than 20% of what was mandate Palestine, inclusive of the road networks and the settlements that effectively break up what is left of their land and in the meantime we will have the western and Israeli media spouting out nonsense to the effect that Obama is taking a preferential line toward the Palestinians. The really sad thing is, Abbas might just give up on the “rights of the Palestinian people” in exchange for this “U.S. illusion.”(3) Moreover, when the deal is signed, sealed and delivered, those Palestinians who argue that they can never accept a peace which doesn’t even address their basic rights under international law, will be tarred with the same brush as those lunatics, like Daniel Herschkowitz, who are not willing to “compromise”. The goal posts have certainly been moved and with Israel’s “opponents”, Abbas and Obama, actually kicking ball for the Zionists, the Palestinians really do need a bit of the divine intervention.

About sanculottist

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
