Tell the Barack Admin., and your federal political representatives, that, despite his, and his Admin.s‘, attempts at squashing debate, censoring criticism, and fabricating the present, as well as revising the past, a ‘peace' summit on the conflict between Israel and Palestine, can't lack the presence of the legitimately, democratically, elected Gov't of the whole of the Palestinian people, Hamas. For racialism and imperialism doesn't a lasting peace make.
More talking points:
In the lead off speech for the U.N., yesterday, u.s.a. President Barack Obama, did a great job, in his opine, yet, there are other opinions, that dare to be heard, and, as an example, I'll critique his speeching on his supposed, ‘new' Middle East peace process; he purports is ongoing.
"...Now, many are pessimistic about this process. The cynics say... ...Rejectionists on both sides will try to disrupt the process, with bitter words and... ...empower the forces of rejectionism and hate...." ~ Super Obama
Notice the escalation in the severity of the insults he hurls at those who might not see things as he does on all these issues: "...pessimistic... ...cynics... ...Rejectionists... ...hate...". And, supposedly, everybody knows that, as the African-American conspiracy projects, "you gotta hate the haters"; no we don‘t, and "pessimists", etc., people who disagree with Super Obama, aren‘t, by definition, "haters".
"...And those who long to see an independent Palestine rise must stop trying to tear Israel down..." ~ Super Obama
Again, another insult to all those working for a two-state solution for decades, including the Israeli Gov't, for, we're not "tearing Israel down" when we critique it and its actions, suggest they be investigated, etc., as many Israelis do too, and as the United Nations has done time after time!
"...Those who speak out for Palestinian self-government..." ~ Super Obama
Wait a minute, we don't "speak out for Palestinian self-gov't", we speak out for, and do activism for, a sovereign Palestinian Country; for, they've been self-governing for decades already. I.m.h.o., this is what's called a veiled threat, for, he knows they've been self-governing for decades, yet, he suggests that this is only an issue on the table, something that could be taken away, possibly?; not in this universe, ever!
"...Or, we can say that this time: will be different... ...we will not let terror, or turbulence, or posturing, or petty politics stand in the way... ...we will think not of ourselves... ...we should draw upon the teachings of tolerance... ...we should reach for what's best within ourselves. If we do, when we come back here next year, we can have an agreement that will lead to a new member of the United Nations - an independent state of Palestine, living in peace with Israel." ~ Super Obama
Am I the only one who notices that this directly insults the person of, and actions of the 10,000's of officials and politicians who have tried to make peace, the 1000's of times they all did in the past, for the past 60 years? Also, 100's have said, "this time it will be different", 1000's of times, words don't change a thing; although, haughty words will make great press, even if the fake Middle East Peace summit, like King George and his Dick Cheney's before this one, doesn't even succeed, even without Hamas‘ participation. As the purported peace negotiations, that are doomed to fail because they make believe the legitimately, democratically, elected Gov't of the whole of the Palestinian people, Hamas, who, everybody knows represents over half the Palestinian people, at minimum, will be not much more than hot air, and any purported agreements, not worth more than the paper they're written on; except for the fact that they will enable Mr. Abbas to get ‘paid' more, by the usa and Israel, for his support and compliance with this global charade.
"...the slaughter of innocent Israelis is not resistance, it is injustice..." ~ Super Obama
Here, super Obama is finally certifying his pro-Israeli stance, at the expense of Palestine and its people, as well as the truth, as his Administration has shown, and proved over and over during his Presidency. What "slaughter of innocent Israelis", everyone knows, and agrees to the facts, and numbers, that, for every Israeli who has died directly from these conflicts, 100 Palestinians have died, at minimum; how could he suggest he's even for peace when he so skewers the truth in favor of Israeli imperialism?
