POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY YOSSI KLEIN HELEVI IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

More ridiculous Israeli propaganda about the decline of Israeli’s friend, the dictator, Mubarak.

Indeed, perhaps the most ridiculous I have ever read, a totally self-absorbed piece, demonstrating a complete lack of principle concerning rights and democratic values.

America can’t be trusted?

How about Israel? No one in his or her right mind trusts Israel in anything.

Whoever, at any time, has put any trust in Israel over 60 years has ended with having his or her face walked on.

The betrayals from this rogue state are beyond counting.

Secret atomic weapons.

Theft of atomic materials.

Massive, intrusive spying, including the work of Jonathon Pollard, likely the most damaging spy in American history – a man whom Israel has a national holiday named for – not to mention the teams of spies posing as movers and art students in 2001who were close on the trail of the 9/11 perpetrators and never told American authorities.

Dealing with apartheid South Africa in atomic weapons.

Assassinations.

The 1967 War planned for the land grab we see now.

The phony set-up of Israeli commandos at Entebbe, a black operation to build Israel’s bad international image.

The two-hour attack against the USS Liberty during the 1967 War, a deliberate effort to sink a recognized American spy ship so that Israel could break its word to the U.S. and have Dayan’s armor turn around for more conquest.

The regular phony clearing of “illegal” settlements which are nothing but shacks set up by insane ultra-orthodox settlers while the regular “legal” stealing of land just continues.

The regular abuse of the passports and stealing of identities of allies like Australia or Canada for Mossad operations.

The claims of democracy in a region where Israel only embraces absolute leaders who don’t oppose its nasty work.

The claims of democracy where Israel never bothered to talk to a legitimately elected government in Gaza, indeed it illegally barged in and arrested members of the government and held back funds which weren’t theirs to hold.

Israel broke its agreements on international postal conventions by stopping deliveries to Gaza.

Turkey used to be given the odd good word by Israel: now, since Israel’s act of piracy on the high seas, killing unarmed people, every Israeli apologist blubbers about Turkey’s turning away from the West.

Israel has broken pretty well every international convention there is with its massive illegal arrests, imprisonments, and decades of torture.

Israel stands out in the world as the only nation in contempt of many, many U.N. Resolutions, far more than states which the U.S. attacked using contempt of Resolutions as an excuse.

The list could be continued, and articles like this one are gross hypocrisy, part of an endless deluge of propaganda trying to make Israel seem like a place with which we should have sympathy.

In the end, if Israel should become surrounded by antipathetic states, whose fault is it? An Israel which has never cooperated with any of its neighbors, which has never displayed anything but an “iron wall” towards them, an Israel which has attacked every neighbor that it has, and an Israel which double-dealt every friend or ally.
