A South African Lesson: Why "Israel" is Doomed to Fail
rebel1916: Every time the right-wing regime of Israel led by warmonger Benjamin Netanyahu makes a move to consolidate its apartheid policies, one inevitably is reminded of its former partner in crime, apartheid South Africa.
The former National Party, whose claim to infamy was racism, discrimination, injustice, a brutal security apparatus – all rolled into an ideology known as apartheid, kept trying to market itself as a “democracy”. It insisted that in defending western capitalism and Christian values, it was a bulwark against communism. Of course, it succeeded for a long while in persuading its imperial allies to overlook crimes against the indigenous black majority. Ultimately it crashed despite believing that its power was indestructible. Exactly what Netanyahu is doing.
Marketing Israel as an indispensable ally of the West in its “war on terror”; the “only democracy” in the Middle East; defender of western values; bulwark against Iran and Islam and all the while behaving with impunity and in defiance of all known international conventions in the knowledge that the lifeline it enjoys from America in particular, renders it indestructible.
Fractured fairy tale: Oh Bull Its Apartheid . Its not a Security Situation . Its been made out that way by the Isreal Government. And people reapt it
Cos it Appeals to there Egotistical nature
edmund_carey: All I want is Israel left alone and allowed to live in peace. That hasn't been done for two minutes together since the country was founded.
Fractured fairy tale: Haig International Law Courts In Hagg Netherlands . You know where the Nuremberg Trials were . Big Movement to move it .
Fractured fairy tale: If Isreal was under threat Edmond Don't you think The IDF would join in the Fight against neighbouring Countries. to save it Insted of letting everyone else do it . Only thing they do is Share Dodgy Intelligence. That leads to all these conflicts
edmund_carey: Oh, the Hague. Just say International Court of Justice. If Israel gets taken there, so will its accusers. It will be a vicious circle.
The IDF has nothing against neighboring countries. Its problem is Hamas, and Hezbollah, and the PA. You will notice that the IDF goes into action when Israel is attacked. It never initiates anything.
Fractured fairy tale: Blah blah blah Hamas and hesbolar
What were we Doing in Afghanistan and Iraq then . And trying to oust Syrian leadership
Fractured fairy tale: RIDF could spare a Thousand Troops to go to South America last year are Hesbolar hiding there too . Or was it Hamas
edmund_carey: Syrians tried to oust the Syrian leadership, not "us". The United States merely went to their assistance. Syrians were trying to realize in their own country what they hoped were the benefits of the Arab Spring. Their dictator was using live ammunition against demonstrators, and jailing his opponents. Israel had nothing whatever to do with that. Afghanistan was being governed by a cadre of religious fanatics under whose rule teachers were dragged into the street and beheaded for the crime of teaching girls. The country was playing host to a terrorist organization which had slaughtered three thousand defenseless American civilians. That's what's called a "casus belli" in international relations. Israel had nothing whatever to do with that either.
