Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu meet with his fawning fans in the US Congress yesterday. The soulless and treasonous politicians applauded so hard for Netanyahu they broke C-Span’s sound equipment as Jon Stewart pointed out in a humorous and thought provoking video segment on his March 3, 2015 program of The Daily Show!
A total of 57 members of Congress, 56 Democrats and one Independent, boycotted Netanyahu’s warmongering speech. It will be interesting to see how much longer the political careers of these brave souls last.
One troubling and very dangerous statement made by Netanyahu in his speech and which has become a standard mantra for US politicians of both parties, including Barack Obama, is:
“The remarkable alliance between Israel and the United States has always been above politics.”
The fact that Obama and the Democrats parrot this same Israel over all line indicates Obama and Netanyahu are NOT really opposed to each other as the media reports. Here’s an article that lists five reasons there is no important difference between Obama and Netanyahu.
The belief that US support for the Jewish state is “above politics” means it cannot change. This is very beneficial to Israel and very detrimental to America and the rest of the world.
The bully of the Middle East, Israel, will continue to cause unnecessary religious wars as they did regarding Iraq and as they’re trying now regarding Iran.
They will continue to expand their illegal occupation of Palestine and continue their heartless and brutal subjugation of the Palestinian people. Their very real growing stockpile of nuclear weapons (which Obama never even mentioned) will continue unabated as will their delivery systems including their expanding fleet of submarines.
