Hillary...You're the Secretary of State August 19, 2009
So, we've all heard about Madam Secretary's little PMS episode by
now, I guess.
When being questioned abroad recently about what her husband Bill's
take might be on some issue, she fired both barrels off in response,
making sure all knew who the current Foreign Minister of the U.S.A. is.
Turns out that there may have been a mistranslation of the question, to
Hey, I'll admit that she had a bit of a point there, but still...
Coming from Hillary, the current chief at the State Department,
this was a bit ironic--or worse.
The Foggy Folks have a long tradition of thinking that they're
supposed to run Israel's foreign policy, not Israel--to the point of
demanding that the Jews take steps, such as arming those who still want
them dead, returning to the armistice lines (not borders) which made
Israel a mere 9-mile wide rump state before the '67 War, and so forth.
More than likely, the folks at the Foggy headquarters have to travel
further than that just to return to their homes after work. Oh yes, the
State Department demanded that there be no Israel at all in the first
place--fighting President Truman's recognition of the Jewish State from
the very beginning.
Lately, Hillary and her Foggy crew have demanded that Jews not
build nor live in parts of Jerusalem--a place Jews have called home for
thousands of years...at a time when Hillary's ancestors were still
worshipping fertility gods and stone idols. If Jews can't live in one
part, does that mean Arabs can't live in the other?
Yes, Hillary...indeed, you're the Secretary of State of the United
But please keep this in mind when you and your crew order Israel to
shelve its own Secretary of State, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman,
because he refuses to grovel at your feet and cave in to your
constantly unfair and suicidal demands on his tiny, beleaguered,
resurrected nation--among the best allies America has, not only in the
Middle East, but just about anywhere.
Avigdor Lieberman is Israel's
Foreign Minister...not you, Hillary.
He refuses, along with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to buy
your distinction between the alleged good
cops of Fatah and the Palestinian Authority's Abbas and the
bad cops of Islamic Jihad and Hamas. The latter--to their
credit--are simply more honest about their murderous intent.
The reality is that the former are sometimes simply more
willing to say the right words to the West to cash in on billions of
dollars in aid and to have an army created for them courtesy of Uncle
Sam. This is all part of their well-known and openly admitted "moderate"
Trojan Horse, destruction-in-phases plans vis-ŗ-vis Israel.
Good thing they're the "moderates."
To anyone with functioning neurons, it's obvious that both
cops refuse to accept the idea of a Jewish State as their neighbor.
Why is it that Arabs expect that scores of millions of non-Arabs
(Kurds, Imazighen/Berbers, black Africans, Assyrians, Copts, Jews, and
so forth) must live in what Arabs call "Arab" states--twenty-one to date
with another in the oven--but the idea of some Arabs living in someone
else's state is taboo?
I know the racist, subjugating Arab
rationale for this, but how does an allegedly more
open-minded West go along with such hypocrisy and double standards?
The same Foggy Folks who demand a roadmap for that 22nd Arab state--and
second, not first, one to be formed within the original
April 25, 1920 borders of the Mandate of Palestine (Jordan sits on about
80% of the total area)--act deaf, dumb, and blind to the plight of the
majority Imazighen population of "Arab" North Africa who increasingly
are seeing their own language and culture outlawed as the forced
Arabization process, going on for over a thousand years, intensifies.
Today, they are even being told that they can't name their own children
with Amazigh names, but must use Arab/Islamic ones instead. Syrian Kurds
can tell a similar story, etc. and so forth (my new book, The
Quest For Justice In The Middle East--The Arab-Israeli Conflict In
Greater Perspective, gets into all of this in great detail).
Madam Secretary, why the hush about all of this? Not a peep out of
your Foggy crew. If this were Israel doing this (Arabic is Israel's
second national language), you'd be leading the charge for another trial
in Geneva or special session of the United Nations.
roadmaps for those above (and other) truly
stateless and bitterly subjugated non-Arab
peoples? They don't have one state let alone almost two dozen others.
Are Arabs the only ones worthy of justice in Foggy eyes??
The simple fact of life is that, unlike a 3,000 mile wide America
with two vast oceans buffering it, a miniscule Israel is surrounded by
hundreds of millions of folks who still want it dead--regardless of all
the whitewashing that's being done by Hillary and her Foggy crew and,
even more sadly, a current American Administration trying to force a
peace of the grave plan down Israel's throat.
