First Zionists had no reasons for apartheid: Colonial powers instigated racist behaviors

After further thinking, and after 70 years of the existence of the State of Israel, it is dawning on me that the first Jews who were forced out of their countries to settle in Palestine had no reasons to discriminate with the Palestinians, neither on color, religion, customs, tradition, status or faked origins.

The Jews were used as slaves by the Rothschild families to cultivate their acquired lands in Palestine, with crops satisfying their interests, mainly to produce wine.

It was the Palestinians who saved them from famine, malaria, and new sickness and permitted them to survive in their new lands of misery.

It is the colonial powers (USA, France, England and Germany) who encouraged their immigration and instilled in them their racist tendencies.

Currently, Israel apartheid laws had gone further than any State in discriminating with Palestinians. Actually, the Palestinian cannot live under any of apartheid Israeli laws.

Now that the Jews in Israel have acquired “properties” for almost free, they are Not about to relinquish their spoil.

The colonial powers knew the strategic region of the Middle-East and they early on in the 19th century did their best to divide it into faked fabricated States and foment civil wars and constant pre-emptive wars.

The faked State of Israel, the faked State monarchy in Jordan, the faked State of Lebanon were used as “marionette” States in the plans of the colonial powers. But the calamities were real, the massacres were real, the displacement, forced transfer and suffering of many generations were real.

It is the colonial powers, especially the “christian” evangelical sects who spread most the myths that are inculcated to the Jews living in Israel. And the most violent and disgusting anthem of this awful State of Israel, of committing massacres to expand their faked “biblical” territories.

Not a single artifact that could prove the existence of any “Jewish Kingdom” or civilization was ever uncovered after 100 years of excavation in Jerusalem or in Palestine in general.

Note: Late Prime minister Shimon Peres had entered Palestine with a tourist visa. As many officials.

‘NYT’ coverage of Trump peace plan news quotes 5 pro-Israel voices, 0 Palestinians

Media Analysis

 on 

The New York Times covers phase one of the Trump peace plan, an economic “workshop” in Bahrain next month at which the administration is expected to dangle the money it wants to give Palestinians and states neighboring Israel, so that Palestinians will sacrifice their political demands/rights (among them sovereignty on ’67 borders; return of refugees; shared Jerusalem)– a figure said to be $68 billion.

The article quotes No Palestinians. (No Palestinian business person will attend this faked “workshop”)

It does include quotes from Aaron David Miller, Jared Kushner, Robert Satloff, Treasury’s Steve Mnuchin, and Brookings pundit Tamara Cofman Wittes. Five (Jewish) Americans, all five of them strong supporters of Israel. (Mnuchin’s background is here.)

Satloff, Wittes, and Miller are all presented as “critics” of the plan, but they are all Zionist critics of the plan. Just different shades of Zionist.(No, not shade. Stauncher Zionists than most Israelis)

Why? This is racism in journalism before your eyes.

The Times clearly has a structural bias against Palestinians. (As all colonial powers’ administrations in the last century)

Even as it demonstrates its higher consciousness in other left zones, the newspaper is stuck in the old paradigm on Israel.

How else could a newspaper publish four justifications of the killings of nonviolent protesters inside of a few months, as it did last year in Gaza?

This would never happen in any other context when a government opens fire on demonstrators.

But the Times columnists offered those justifications, in Shmuel Rosner’s case almost a bloodthirsty one, and there was no balance, let alone criticism from the Roger Cohens, David Brookses, and Michelle Goldbergs of the world.

Palestinians simply don’t count as full human actors.

The Palestinian Prime Minister released a statement rejecting the economic summit today. He and his cabinet surely were available yesterday. So was Sam Bahour, who writes that Palestine cannot have an economic future without an independent political future, in which construction workers and university graduates will be able to find employment inside a Palestinian state.

Diana Buttu, Saeb Erekat, Hanan Ashrawi (who has been denied a visa to travel to the U.S.), Omar Barghouti, Mustafa Barghouti, Haider Eid surely would have spoken to the Times, too.

Palestine is truly teeming with sophisticated political actors on a wide range who would have something to say about the implausibility of economic peace.

And if the Times says this was an American politics piece, well, there are Palestinians here, too, who have a lot to say. The bottom line here is obvious and disturbing. Palestinians aren’t equals.
