CONSUMERIST: D-DAY FOR PALESTINE AT THE UN?

Dato Jacob George

‘The larger U.N. General Assembly must make certain that they stand by the Palestinian people  and not allow a cruel decades long miscarriage of justice to continue!

The Palestinian ‘killing field’ like others in other parts of the world must be stopped and a statehood recognized!

This is the least they could do after previous failed peace talks, bickering and sporadic outbreaks of violence, genocide, war crimes, and the imprisonment of a population robbed of their peace, land, statehood, independence, human dignity and life itself!

On one hand, it is about a homeland, human dignity and the right to statehood for a community of people who have endured suffering, genocide, war crimes, theft of land and property and the other the awful reality of the Jewish lobby, Israel’s cannibalism, bullying and a US veto!’ – Dr Jacob George

 

CONSUMERIST: D-DAY FOR PALESTINE AT THE UN?

As far as I am concerned whether due to an expected US veto or other manipulation it fails it does not matter but Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ bold bid for UN recognition of Palestinian statehood has won him admiration at home and re-energized international efforts to seek statehood once and for all!

It was heart-warming to see thousands of jubilant, flag-waving Palestinians watching on outdoor screens across the West Bank cheered on their president Friday as he submitted his historic request for a UN nod.

I am advised that in Nablus, the crowd roared ecstatically when Abbas, known as Abu Mazen, told the UN General Assembly that he had submitted the request for full UN membership.

That was not all as in New York, Abbas’ speech was interrupted repeatedly by thunderous applause as he told the largely sympathetic gathering of world leaders that the Palestinians had had enough of negotiations that have foundered for nearly two decades and yielded few tangible results for the millions who live under Israeli occupation.

It was quite clear that the new Palestine he and al peace loving Palestinians and their sympathizers envisioned would be in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem, territories Israel captured in 1967!

When President Abbas said the following:

“It is a moment of truth and my people are waiting to hear the answer of the world”

“At a time when the Arab peoples affirm their quest for democracy — the Arab Spring — the time is now for the Palestinian Spring, the time for independence.”

It certainly gave out the cry that went on for decades for a homeland, for dignity and sensitivity to be returned to a community who were treated as if they were the problems rather than the victims of a flawed, racist, and vulgar foreign policy undertaken by colony powers and a United Nations that was repeated hijacked by countries having veto powers tolerating a rascal, a recalcitrant and a big bully!

At the security council, I am expecting US opposition to shoot it down.

The US has already go on record stating long-term peace can only be reached through negotiations!

If you thought that was bad let me point out another vulgar act when it is learnt that Israel have also been pressuring council members to either vote against the plan or abstain when it comes up for a vote.

You do not have to be a Harvard Law Professor to know that Palestine requires the support of nine of the council’s 15 members to pass, but even if the Palestinians could line up that backing, a US veto is assured!

President Obama is a very decent man but the Washington Hawks, the right wing and the Jewish lobby will make certain this move will fail!

The Security Council will meet today to examine the Palestinian membership request.

The larger U.N. General Assembly must make certain that they stand by the Palestinian people  and not allow a cruel decades long miscarriage of justice to continue!

This is the least they could do after previous failed peace talks, bickering and sporadic outbreaks of violence, genocide, war crimes, and the imprisonment of a population robbed of their peace, land, statehood, independence, human dignity and life itself!

On one hand, it is about a homeland, human dignity and the right to statehood for a community of people who have endured suffering, genocide, war crimes, theft of land and property and the other the awful reality of the Jewish lobby, Israel’s cannibalism, bullying and a US veto!
