JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE DEMONSTRABLY FALSE NOTION OF ISRAEL AS A FOUNDATION FOR PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN MONDOWEISS

“Israel is ‘anchor and foundation for democracy in the region’”

Of course, quite the opposite is true.

Israel is friendly with the worst tyrants and 13th century princes in the region.

It likes them because they keep their people in line brutally just as Israel does the Palestinians.

Israel has never favored – except in phony political speeches – democracy for its neighbors.

Hamas was genuinely democratic. Israel attacked it, kidnaped members of its government, threatened the life of its leader, and got it stupidly listed as a terrorist organization by its servants in Washington.

After thirty years of oppressive government in Egypt, government Israel was on good terms with, a brief experiment with democracy was ended with a coup which put a Field Marshal in charge. The prisons are stuffed.

The coup was undoubtedly assisted by CIA at Israeli insistence. Israel absolutely hated the democratic government.

Of course, Israel’s own government hardly counts as a democracy. Pretty much only one kind of people is welcome, and it has about 5 million other kinds of people under its harsh rule who have no rights, not even secure rights to their own homes and farms, and certainly no votes. And the Prime Minister of Israel rules with an almost-perpetual minority.
