Here is the full Ben Gurion quote - "If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti - Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?"
Speaking at the UN President Obama stated that Iran must play by the rules: they must obey UN resolutions; this was in reference to the latest American allegations about their attempts to create nuclear weapons or Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD’s) as they like to label them. BTW when is a WMD not a WMD? The answer is when it is owned by us or our friends then it becomes a Nuclear Deterrent; when it is owned by someone whom we or more importantly America doesn’t like, that’s when it becomes a WMD. This of course means that our nuclear weapons are OK because we are the goodies and Iran or anyone else we don’t like are the baddies right? No it’s not right, the elephant in the room as always is the rogue apartheid state of Israel; All the drivel and weasel words about nuclear weapons and WMD’s as well as the sanctimonious c**p about the inviolability of United Nations Resolutions should have choked Obama; he and we are guilty of breathtaking hypocrisy.
The simple facts are that Israel has hundreds of illegal nuclear weapons and are also in breach of many UN resolutions; in fact they actively ignore these resolutions every day and America and it’s friends look the other way; in fact it’s worse than that they finance them. America and Britain where our armed forces torture people and murder them as well as locking them up for years without charge or trial tell Iran to play by the rules; what rules? one might ask why are there two sets for a start? why does Israel get to keep it’s illegal WMD’s and others do not? is it because Israel is a nice country and Iran isn’t? Remember Gaza? A UN commission into the events in the Gaza strip last January has reported back and it’s contents should make everyone who lives in countries which support Israel shudder.
Remember the results - 1387 Palestinians dead 773 of them civilians including hundreds of women and children; 13 Israeli lives lost 10 of whom were soldiers 5 by friendly fire; the report condemns Israel’s war crimes and the Israeli response is the old cry of Anti Semitism; they would be as well telling the UN and the rest of the world to F**k off because the Americans are on our side; we can do what we want. The knock out blow should have been the fact that the figures come from a brave Israel human rights group called B’Tselem whom they also ignore. Phosphorous bombs; human shields; the destruction of schools and hospitals; homes with people in them destroyed were witnessed by a world audience and still Israel denies the charges and defies the world.
The number of Jews who are horrified at Israel’s actions continue to grow and the suffering of the Palestinian people goes on; they are denied basic human rights by the Israeli occupiers and treated like animals; denied any dignity and goaded and insulted constantly. These crimes are being committed by a people who suffered unspeakable cruelty and genocide at the hands of the Nazis and they are now treating others with cruelty and barbarity; what is going on in their minds.
I started out with fierce criticism of Obama but he is still the best hope for the Palestinians to regain their country and their place in the world; which is the same place as you and me; a free and just homeland. Someone once said that when someone gains a country someone else loses one and Israel will never see peace until the exiled Arabs return from exile to a just and peaceful land perhaps Obama will seal his place in history and bring it about.
