POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

The United States in vetoing this resolution abuses shamefully its power on the Security Council.

The rightness and the decency of this resolution are apparent to everyone except the same Israelis who do business with the likes of Mubarak or apartheid South Africa.

Also blind to its rightness and decency are the apologists for Israel who fill our media with a biased point of view on everything concerning the Middle East and who keep the American Congress sheepishly following Israel’s narrow and most selfish interests through the corrupt American system of political finance and campaign contributions.

Please ask yourself, what is Israel’s purpose in opposing such reasonable demands?

There is only one: Israel wants all of the Palestinian land and wants it without Palestinians.

There is a slow-motion process of ethnic-cleansing which has been going on before our eyes since the end of the 1967 war.

The occupation serves only to make Palestinians miserable so they want to leave.

Israel stands in contempt of dozens of past resolutions, and it treats the United Nations with contempt always and everywhere.

Indeed, America has gone to war in other places citing such reasons, yet here everything is just fine.

Yet our governments say nothing, our press says nothing, and indeed America’s government acts like this for fear of its political weakness in 2012.

Where is the justice, where is the humanity, where is the acceptance of democratic principles in any of this?

There is none.
