Noura Erekat: Netanyahu's Proposed West Bank Annexation is Logical End To Israel's Apartheid Policy

https://www.democracynow.org/2019/9/12/benjamin_netanyahu_israel_west_ba...

"Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is facing worldwide condemnation for vowing to annex nearly a third of the occupied West Bank if he wins next week's snap election. The UN, Arab League, the EU and Russia have all criticized Netanyahu's stand which he unveiled Tuesday. We speak with Noura Erakat, Palestinian human rights attorney."

Actually, Mulroney was a leader of the international campaign to end apartheid. He stood up to Thatcher at Commonwealth meetings, and openly opposed his pal Reagan. One of the first places Mandela visited after he was freed was Canada, where he expressed his gratitude for the Mulroney government's support. I don't have much good to say about Mulroney, but I have to give him this one.

NDPP

Yes, but the entire history prior to Mulroney was supportive. DIA used to be full of South African administrators hired because of their experience with 'natives'. And of course the South African apartheid system was largely modeled on Canada's reserve system.

Pity our political class has no similar fire in the belly to destroy Israeli apartheid.

US & Israel Cast Lone UN Votes Against Historic Peace Measures

"...At the same meeting, the First Committee approved a draft resolution on 'The Risk of Nuclear Proliferation in the Middle East,' which called for the region to abide by the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). Given Israel is the only country in the Middle East with nuclear weapons, the UNGA resolution called on Tel Aviv to join the NPT (Israel has long refused to sign the treaty) and demanded that Israeli nuclear facilities be overseen by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards.

The draft resolution was also overwhelmingly approved, with 151 votes in support and a mere six votes against - from the US, Israel and Canada, along with the tiny island nations of Palau, Micronesia and the Marshall Islands, which function as vassals of Washington at the UN."

Bensouda acknowledges that 'there is  a reasonable basis to believe that war crimes wer ecommitted by members of the Israel Defense Forces' when they boarded the Mavi Marmara.

'With this decision, the intent is to safeguard Israel - so flagrantly right under the international community's nose - against any indictments of war crimes,' the lawyers for the victims state..."

UN Officially Asks Israel to Leave The Golan Heights

By Middle East Monitor

Global Research, December 06, 2019

Middle East Monitor 5 December 2019

Region:

Theme: ,

 

The UN General Assembly yesterday officially asked Israel to leave the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.

The request was made after the resolution was adopted after 91 UN member states voted in favour, nine rejected and 65 abstained.

The resolution stipulates that Israel leaves all the Syrian Golan Heights occupied in June 1967, stating this is an implementation of the UN Security Council’s resolution.

Regarding the Israeli decision to annex the Golan Heights made on 4 December 1981, the UN said this was “null and void”.

On 15 November 2018, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution asking Israel to stop exploiting the natural resources in the Palestinian territories, including the occupied East Jerusalem and Syrian Golan Heights.

According to the Supreme Court of Canada, Canada must now introduce legislation in Parliament to request Israel leave the Golan Heights.....

The Israeli Right Has Reason To Believe The Stars Are Finally Aligned For Annexation

https://dissidentvoice.org/2020/01/the-israeli-right-has-reason-to-belie...

"...According to Israeli analysts, the right percieves itself at a historic crossroads. It can annex most of the West Bank and impose an unmistakeable apartheid rule over a restless, rebellious Palestinian population. Or it can realise its Greater Israel ambitions by helping to topple the Hashemite kingdom and encourage the West Bank's Palestinians to disperse into Jordan. All Israeli right-wingers need is a nod of approval from the White House. With Netanyahu desperate to pull a rabbit out of his hat and with an obliging patron installed in Washington, there is reason enough for them to believe that the stars may finally be aligned."

Gantz pledges to annex Jordan Valley when elected

 Jan 21, 2020 @ 15:35

Opposition Kahol Lavan’s Benny Gantz pledged on Tuesday, if he is elected, to extend Israel sovereignty to the Jordan Valley, Israel’s key eastern border – “in coordination with the international community.” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made this earlier commitment without the international proviso. He challenged Gantz to enact the step in the Knesset without delay since it was now consensual. Why wait for the March election?  Likud accused Gantz of a vote-stealing dodge which was meaningless since the international community would never agree. And the left accused him of cozying up to the right.

The missiles launched by the F-16s of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) on Damascus risked causing another air tragedy like that which occurred in Syria on September 17, 2018 when the defense systems of the Arab Army of Bashar Al Assad accidentally hit a Russian Ilyushin Il-20 reconnaissance aircraft killing the entire crew of 15 men or the one that happened on January 8 in Tehran with the involuntary shooting down of the Iranian anti-aircraft of flight PS752 of Ukrainian Airlines causing 176 victims.

An Airbus 320 flight with 172 people on board bound for Damascus, around 2 o’clock tonight (Syrian time) found itself in the crossfire of at least 8 Israeli rockets and those of the Syrian defense batteries S-300. Therefore, he was forced to quickly change course for an emergency landing at the Russian Aerospace Forces airport in Hmeinimi.

The news was released by the Ministry of Defense of Moscow highlighting that the serious danger was caused by the maneuver of the Tel Aviv jets that, starting from the Golan Hights, exploit the airspace of Lebanon and hide behind civilian planes to launch their attacks planes.

On Thursday night, the IDF assault struck the outskirts of the Mazzeh military airport, south of Damascus, and other nearby positions of the Quds Forces fighters of the Iranian Pasdaran. Most of the rockets have been intercepted by defense systems.

According to the Russian media Sputnik International there were only 8 injured while for the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights there would have been 23 victims among pro-Iranian paramilitaries and some soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army as well as heavy damage to the deposits of weapons and ammunition.

After that first attack, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates of Damascus said that the violation of Syrian borders by Turkish forces at dawn on Thursday in an exposed synchronicity and under cover of the Israeli aggression confirms the unity of the objectives between the Turkish regime and the Israeli entity in the protection of terrorists.

“In exposed coordination and disclosed synchronicity, Turkish forces and under the cover of Israeli aggression at dawn broke Syrian borders, and were deployed between the villages of Binnish, Ma’ar Masrin and Taftanaz in a step that affirms the unity of objectives between the Turkish regime and the Israeli entity which aim to protect terrorists, in particular Jabhat al-Nusra, and prevent the advancement of the Syrian Arab army in Idleb and Aleppo and prevent the complete defeat of their agents in Syria” an official source said in a statement to the SANA agency on Thursday


from Russia Today 

A surprise Israeli raid against Damascus suburbs early Thursday activated Syrian air defenses and put a civilian aircraft in serious danger, forcing it to divert to a Russian airbase in Khmeimim, Russian Defense Ministry said.

The civil Airbus-320, enroute from Tehran to the Syrian capital, was forced to make the emergency landing following an Israeli missile attack, the ministry said, denouncing Israeli pilots’ “common practice” of using civilian aircraft as a “shield.”

The aircraft was due to land at the Damascus International Airport, but was unable to do so as Syrian air defense systems engaged hostile targets. The surprise attack took place around 2am local time, with four Israeli F-16s firing at least eight air-to-surface missiles from outside of Syrian airspace.

Tel Aviv is perfectly aware of civilian flight routes and air activity around Damascus, day and night, and such reckless missions prove that Israeli strategists could not care less about possible civilian casualties, Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov argued.

“Only due to timely actions of the Damascus airport dispatchers and the efficient operation of the automated air traffic control system, the Airbus-320 managed to… successfully land at the closest alternative airfield,” Konashenkov added.

That was not the first time Israeli fighter jets have endangered civilian craft over Syria, with Moscow criticizing Tel Aviv for putting two passenger flights in danger during an air raid in 2018. Israel has flown hundreds of similar bombing raids on Syria throughout the country’s civil war, claiming to be hitting “legitimate Iranian targets.”

Also on rt.com Israel’s airstrikes on Syria threatened 2 civilian flights landing in Beirut & Damascus – Russia

During a tense moment in early January after a series of Iranian strikes on US military positions in Iraq – retaliation for the assassination of Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani – Tehran accidentally shot down a Ukrainian airliner, killing all 176 people on board. Iran quickly came clean about the incident and apologized, admitting it made a mistake in a time of crisis, fearing an imminent counter-attack from US warplanes.

In another incident in 2018, Syria’s air defenses shot down a Russian IL-20 military craft after Israeli F-16 pilots used it as cover. The deadly shootdown, which killed the plane’s 15-man crew, prompted Moscow to furnish the country with its S-300 missile defense system.

Another tragic incident in the Middle East involving a civilian airliner occurred in early January, when Tehran accidentally shot down a Ukrainian airliner on the heels of its own missile strikes on US military bases in Iraq, which came in retaliation for the assassination of Iran’s elite Quds Force commander, Qassem Soleimani.

All 176 people on board died. Iran quickly came clean about the incident and apologized, admitting it made a mistake in a time of crisis, fearing an imminent counter-attack from US warplanes.

…by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor

Two weeks ago Bibi floated the idea to trigger his voters getting out to the polls with his passing a bill to give him retroactive immunity on his three felony charges. In his usual pompous manner, he claimed that his 35 seat election victory was the people’s vote that he was innocent, quite a stretch, but Bibi knows no limits.

Gantz was trailing in the polls at the time, so his team was planning what it would do in this case. As it stands now, Bibi seems frozen with 58 seats, three short of the 61 needed to put him in a position to form a government.

It has been all over the Israeli press that the Likuds were shopping for other party defectors to put them over the top, using the usual goodies, like offering them a ministerial position. So far, none are taking the offer.

But Avigdor Lieberman has throw his party’s votes in with Blue and White to give it 62 votes to pass a bill in the new Knesset on March 16th that would ban an indicted MP from forming a government.

Bibi is screaming to high heaven how “undemocratic” that would be, even if passed by a majority of the Knesset, which many would consider the “voice of the people being heard”. The Israelis do not have the American system where the head of state can veto a bill under a two thirds vote.

Blue and White MPs are telling the press that Likud party members are hoping that Netanyahu can be gotten rid of, so Israel can move forward by shaking off their sociopathic Prime Minister, similar to how many feel about Mr. Trump in the US.

Bibi’s first trial date is March 17th; so all of this will be rolled into a momentous two day event which could turn the Israeli political landscape upside down.
