A longer headline would have added the words because of President Obama’s grovelling for Jewish campaign funding and votes.
On 19 December, in the Jewish Daily Forward, Josh Nathan-Kazis wrote this:
“Top-level Jewish fundraisers from President Obama’s 2008 campaign are sticking with the president in 2012.
“Despite reports that President Obama faces a loss of Jewish funders due to his Middle East policy, analysis of a list of elite bundlers from his 2008 race shows no defections among the president’s top Jewish supporters in 2012.”
That’s not good news for the would-be presidents on the Republican side who are grovelling for Jewish campaign funds and votes.
On the same day, in what the BBC’s Barbara Plett called “a highly unusual move”, all the regional and political groupings on the UN Security Council sharply criticised Israeli settlement activities. They said in their statements that “continued settlement building threatened the chances of a future Palestinian state.” They also expressed dismay at rising settler violence. (“They” were the envoys representing the European Union, the Non-Aligned Movement, the Arab Group and a loose coalition of emerging states known as IBSA).
It was UK Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant who read the statement of the EU group.
“Israel’s continuing announcements to accelerate the construction of settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem, (1000 new housing units tendered for last week), send a devastating message. We believe that Israel’s security and the realisation of the Palestinians’ right to statehood are not opposing goals. On the contrary they are mutually reinforcing objectives. But they will not be achieved while settlement building and settler violence continues.”
As Barbara Plett noted, “Despite the unanimity of views, the envoys did not try to draft a single Security Council statement because they knew the US would veto it.” She also noted that the Obama administration’s stance was that “anything to do with Israeli-Palestinian peace talks belongs in a US-led bilateral process, not at the UN.” (In my opinion that’s hypocrisy of the highest order).
It could be said, and I do say, that such criticism of Israel’s settlement activities is 44 years too late. So what, really, is its significance?
My answer is in three parts.
The first is that it’s a strong indication of America’s growing isolation because of the Obama administration’s unconditional support for Zionism’s monster child.
The second, related, is that it seems to confirm what I have been saying and writing for several months – that behind closed doors almost all of the governments of the world, European governments in particular, are more than fed up with Israel’s contempt for and defiance of international law.
The third is that the governments of most of the member states of the UN have come to terms with the fact that Zionism’s assertion that a Palestinian state on the West Bank including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip could and would pose a threat to Israel’s existence is propaganda nonsense of the highest order. (This, of course, is only of academic interest because the two-state solution has long been dead if not yet buried).
When I am thinking about Obama’s grovelling, my memory recalls a comment made to me by Dr. Hajo Meyer, the passionate anti-Zionist Nazi holocaust survivor and author of An Ethical Tradition Betrayed, The End of Judaism.
We had shared a platform in London and over breakfast the following morning I asked him a question. I said: “Hajo, you’re well into your eighties and you are being vilified by Zionism’s verbal hit-men for your efforts to unmask the Zionist monster. Why are you continuing with your truth-telling? Why don’t you sit back in peace and quiet and enjoy what’s left of your life?”
He replied with nine little words. “The first person I see every morning is me,” meaning “I have to live with myself.”
It’s more than reasonable to assume that Obama looks in the mirror from time to time. I wonder if he can live with himself.
Footnote: My comments on Israel’s response
Israel’s response as delivered by Karean Peretz, spokeswoman for Israel’s UN Mission, included this: “The main obstacle to peace, has been, and remains, the Palestinians’ claim to the so-called right of return and its refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state,”
That, too, is Zionist propaganda nonsense of the highest order.
Israel is not a Jewish state. How could it be when about a quarter of its citizens are Arabs and mainly Muslims? Israel could only be a Jewish state after it had resorted to a final round of ethnic cleansing. Israel is a Zionist state.
Because Arafat kept them informed through a secret channel, Israel’s leaders have long known that in the event of a two-state solution, the PLO was reluctantly reconciled to the reality of the right of return being confined to the territory of the Palestinian state, which would mean that only about 100,000 refugees would be able to return, with the rest having to accept financial compensation for the loss, theft, of their land and rights.
As I explain in my book Zionism, The Real Enemy of the Jews, when they decided they had no choice but to be pragmatic, Arafat and his leadership colleagues took a degree of comfort from two hopes. One was that all Palestinian refugees everywhere could and would have a Palestinian passport. The other was that if there was a two-state solution, it could evolve over one or two generations into one state for all – i.e. because in peace and partnership enough Israeli Jews would say something like, “We don’t need two states”. In the event of a one-state solution coming about by mutual consent, it was assumed on the Palestinian side at leadership level that, over time, all Palestinians who wanted to return would be able to return. So in theory the two-state solution was not necessarily the end-game on the right of return.

Is China the Next Superpower-The Sleeping Dragon
We will celebrate Labor Day in China
Slavery in The Corporate World-In the Name of Profits
When corporate America thought that saving few dollars on salaries will make them stronger in the world market, they miscalculated the downfall of their power. Power vested on them when they controlled the world with Mr Dollar.
It is not the same to play with toys make in china for 3 cents a piece and to play with toys made in the US for 3 dollars. The 3 cents toys will brake because the quality is not included in the price, the salary might be included because slave hands are used to make those toys. ‘All in the name of profits’.
The mentality that everything could be made in China grew to a devastating proportions for United States, We the United States of North America sent our manufacturers to China, even some of the Military gadgets were to be made in China, critical technology for the Defense Department was even ‘Made In China’
Where were the strategists of the government in the last 20 years, China was in an accelerated race buying our government bonds owing with this a piece of our economy and weakling up our World Power. Wait! Did we knew that we will be using slave labor? Didn’t we abolished slavery almost 100 years ago, that’s what our History says, don’t we commemorate Abraham Lincoln with big fanfare? We are hypocrites, some even go to Church every Sunday, they repent of their sins weekly but in the in the week they shop in “Wall Mart” the worse slave trader and Domestic Economy Killer. Maybe there is something you should know
“Even if China’s population multiplies many times, she is fully capable of finding a solution; the solution is production,” Mao Zedong proclaimed in 1949. “Of all things in the world, people are the most precious.” The communist government condemned birth control and banned imports of contraceptives.
China One Child’s Policy
Well that statement was slogan after a few years, when the One Child Policy become effective after on and off periods, read the article in its entirely, there is information that you won’t find, but if you read between the lines you can understand the negative consequences of that policy, you will not read about the millions and millions or “Illegal Chinese Man and Woman” that born out of state permit, their parents did not have money to pay the exorbitant fines that they were required to pay for having braking the “Law”, but we ask ourselves in United States of North America we have strong groups that are against abortion, don’t we? but in China abortions are mandatory when you are found pregnant and you have already your “ONE Child”. This story is not about abortion, or Chinese laws but about Profits made with slave Chinese Labor, Yeah! if you as a parent broke the law and you did not pay the fine to the government for having more than one child, which is most common case because usually the couples that get pregnant out of the policy are the poorest in the Chinese Society, these babies are born without birth certificate, and without birth certificate you simply do not exist, that makes you Illegal Chinese in China, you can not go to school because you do not exist, and when you reach working age which is by the way very early age for these Illegal Chinese they become part of the slave trade in China that abuse their status, and we the Corporations of the world not only the Corporate America some other First and Second World Countries are taking “advantage” of these slaves. All in the name of profits. These Illegal Chinese of China are under paid if they get any pay at all, they are used for the most dangerous jobs and they can not complain after all they do not exist.
There are horrible stories about These slaves that tired to being Illegal in their countries they venture to the outside world only to fall in a more grotesque form of slavery, Sweat Shops They leave China in containers filled with fish or whatever material is good to cover the contraband, those stories you don’t see in the news, you has to go out of your way to find the story. The sharks, the human traffickers don’t touch their heart when they empty the containers with the inert bodies of these humans that want a better life. They leave the Mother Land with the promise to get them jobs in America, the traffickers charged them tens of thousands of dollars that are like a dead debt, they are kept in inhumane conditions, mostly without pay until they pay back the “FEE”. Sure there are laws against these practices but they are overlooked, All in the name of Profits.
Our Capitalist Societies are ready to receive the carcasses of the survivals, there will always be an employer that will “Risk” to pay the fines for accepting slave labor, at the end profits is always bigger than the fines.
The disproportionate rationale that living in a Capitalist Society driven by consumerism has to produce profits No Matter what, to keep the status Quo of being strong society because we are Capitalist, because we abuse our labor, after all the base of Capitalism rest on the sweet of the worker, right? So making more profits is an extension and maybe a solidification of our Capital System, well has proven to be wrong. We wanted to make 3 cents toys instead of 3 dollars toys. Why the economist, the analysts of our system did not oversaw that while we will be saving in manufacturing cost we will be killing our system of consumption.
We end up feeding two monsters; the Slave Trade and Creating a huge unemployment rate that will eventually will lead us to a social unrest like the one we just saw developed in the middle east just in the last few months. Maybe we won’t see the crowds marching with sticks and flags demanding jobs, no in North America we have other ways to demand justice, in here we Riot, we Strike, we Boycott and the most importantly in North America “We Consume” we could paralyze our Cities if we use “OUR BUYING POWER”, ‘WE STOP DRIVING ONE DAY”, “WE DON’T BUY GAS ONE DAY” and we will Shape North America back in Check…
The Corporations opened the gates of the factories and disbanded millions of workers as if they were a herd of animals to go graze in the grass without worrying that they needed to make money to buy the 3 cents toys. Eating grass (welfare system) was not going to give them extra pennies to buy Chinese toys. Isn’t it common sense, that to maintain a capitalist society you need to support the base of it, which is the worker class, I mean! common Harvard graduates, Bankers didn’t you oversaw your wrong doings. You took the bread from the table and took the baking oven, what were you expecting to starve to death the workers! and …..replace them with slaves? I don’t think that you were thinking that you will be crating a sub-society of sub-humans that were going to be fighting to survive, and I did not think that you wanted to take the Economy Power from the US and give it to CHINA? Was that part of the plant? Don’t you know Globalist Bankers, Thieves and Associates that we live in an organism “society” that evolve, we move with the times, with the changes, we are not robots that you take the battery and we stay to rust,
No! No! we ALL are humans and if “YOU” even thought that creating this “CHAOS” of world you still will have the control using the War Complex Machine as a backing tool, making the “PEOPLE” believe that we don’t matter, that we are SLAVES only to follow the whip of your control. Can the tanks force us to Drive?, Can the United States Army can come to our homes to force us to go buy Gas or unnecessary food?
United States of North America Vs China. Can their armies be competing for world control?
China’s demonstration of military might and authoritarian muscle on October 1st, its national day, was one recent example of how its judgment can go awry. The parade of thousands of goose-stepping troops through central Beijing, along with military hardware intended mainly to intimidate America and its quasi-ally Taiwan, was a throwback to the imagery of cold-war days. It did not help that dissidents were rounded up and the public kept away from the event
Such scenes touch raw nerves in America, where intellectual and political opinion has long been bitterly divided over how to assess China’s rise. Left-wing Democrats, alarmed by China’s human-rights abuses, find themselves in league with right-wing Republicans who see China as a new Soviet Union, to be distrusted and contained. The October 1st extravaganza also worried a third, more centrist, camp: those who see the Communist Party’s resort to nationalism as a sign of its weakness and of China’s vulnerability to upheaval that could have damaging global consequences. Sleeping Dragon/China
Can the War Complex Machine subsist without workers? Will the World Powers subsist without “Believers” think about it
A Nation without “We the People” Has No Power.
Can unemployment brake the economy of a nation?, You bet It can. But the Will of the People Can Straighten the worse case of Corruption, abuse, intolerance, negligence, ignorance, and Deaf Leaders. Be the Owner of your Destiny, Take Control Back to your hands, The Power to the People is coming back. Be a dissenter voice, and add your voice to the already growing grassroots movements. We Can Do It.
Peace To All
Wake Up America
