The most helpless US President in the face of Middle East reality

I have published lately six articles related to Robert Fisk book “Affliction of a Nation” and focused on chapters that connect dots on how Lebanese resistance forces, particularly Hezbollah, got motivated, organized and managed to kick Israel occupation forces from Lebanon in the year 2000, without negotiations or any preconditions.

On Friday, 23 September 2011, Robert Fisk published the following piece in the British daily The Independent:

“Barack Obama made the ‘preposterous’ suggestion that Palestinians and Israelis were ‘equal’ parties to the conflict

Today should be Mahmoud Abbas’s finest hour. Even The New York Times has discovered that “a grey man of grey suits and sensible shoes, may be slowly emerging from his shadow”.

But this is nonsense. The colorless leader of the Palestinian Authority, who wrote a 600-page book on his people’s conflict with Israel without once mentioning the word “occupation”, should have no trouble this evening in besting Barack Hussein Obama’s pathetic, humiliating UN speech on Wednesday, in which he handed US policy in the Middle East over to Israel’s gimmick government.

For the American President who called for an end to the Israeli occupation of Arab lands, an end to the theft of Arab land in the West Bank – Israeli “settlements” is what he used to call it – and a Palestinian state by 2011, Obama’s performance was pathetic.”

Let us listen to what, even GW.Bush wrote on the Palestinian cause:  “The more I thought of the troubles in the Middle East, the more I was convinced that the fundamental culprit is lack of liberty in the occupied Palestinian territories. Without a recognized State, the Palestinians could not find their place in the world community; as long as the Palestinians have no say in their future, the extremist elements were going to fill the void; without legitimate leaders, democratically elected, dedicated to fighting extremist movement, peace with Israel will be compromised… I was the first US President demanding a recognized Palestinian State by the UN…”  What Obama has to add to what Bush Junior have recently said?

This is the same GW. Bush who also wrote in his autobiography “Decisive moments”: “I gave Israel Ariel Sharon PM my assent for constructing a separation wall (Wall of Shame) between the occupied Palestinian territories and Israel: I believed that this Wall will prevent Palestinians to trespass into Israel. After I received vehement reproach from Arabic leaders, I warned Sharon: “You have to know when to stop your execessive military responses”, but Sharon refused to budge in surrounding the headquarter of Arafat in Ramallah. (Sharon had entered the Palestinian camp in Jenine in the West Bank and committed genocide there in 2003; he had committed genocide in the Palestinian camps of Sabra and Chatila in 1982…).  Bush Junior gave the green light to Israel Olmert PM to committing genocide in Gaza in 2008…

The US Barack Obama has been wasting his presidency convincing the US citizens that a Black President is not necessarily a moral entity (who has assimilated the roots of racism and apartheid), and who might take moral stands in the world community, but just a continuation of the US political system in foreign policies… Obama is failing internally and externally, simply because he refuses to taking the high ground with respect to human rights, everywhere in the world, fairly and equitably. Obama has refused to test the goodwill of the US citizens by expressing practically what changes need to be done in US foreign policies…
