US VETO AT UN A TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE!

‘Today it is the politics of working together for the common good of the people and nation!

That ruling governments respect the decision of the voters and their choices and work together!

That those in the opposition behave and act constructively rather than act in any way that will undermine a nation for their political greed and ambition!

The era of manipulating news and theft of the nation’s treasures through organized and institutionalized corruption by excuses of a vulgar form of misled nationalism as seen in many countries, which includes West Asia is also over!’ – Dr Jacob George

 


US VETO AT UN A TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE!

The politics on ground zero has drastically changed!

You cannot hunt with the hounds and run with the hares!

You cannot preach about human dignity, freedom, democracy and the rights of communities with one breath and then in public do the very opposite!

I am aware that governments around the world are all in a state of fear and anxiety as they see the Arab dominoes fall one by one and wonder whether this will be the same in other parts of the world which includes the developing and third world!

The politics of the old of divide and rule, of partisan politics worst racists politics or that opposition is bad and the incumbents are saviors are all today rejected in the new annals of politics rewritten by a younger and more vibrant demography of voters untainted and free!

The politics of brutal regimes and draconian repressive laws are also over as fear of these are no more as seen in Egypt, Libya and Bahrain recently!

This is a lesson and for those who are intelligent they will embrace the change with speed and listen to the grassroots and not be misled by their own propaganda or that of apple polishers and friendly spin masters and bloggers!

Today it is the politics of working together for the common good of the people and nation!

That ruling governments respect the decision of the voters and their choices and work together!

That those in the opposition behave and act constructively rather than act in any way that will undermine a nation for their political greed and ambition!

The era of manipulating news and theft of the nation’s treasures through organized and institutionalized corruption by excuses of a vulgar form of misled nationalism as seen in many countries which includes West Asia is also over!

Remember this time your stolen loot can be freeze no matter where it is in the world!

So this morning one cannot but feel a sense of great shame once again at the Obama administration which retreated under domestic pressure and racism in using their veto at the UN instead of standing by the Palestinian cause!

The resolution, drafted by the Palestinian leadership was an attempt to pressure Israel to halt settlement construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem and was supported by all 14 other members of the Security Council!

The United States may say sheepishly that its veto should not be interpreted as support for Israeli settlement construction and that it did not believe the United Nations was the best place to resolve the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict which clearly denotes hypocrisy of the worst kind second only to Nazi repression of the Hitler era!

So I support the gathering of 3,000 Palestinians in the West Bank city of Ramallah yesterday to protest the US veto that nixed a Security Council resolution on Israeli settlements.

The crowd massed in Manara Square, a central traffic circle in the West Bank city, waving banners and shouting slogans against the American administration.

It was a sad day to see the world greatest nation giving the impression that it clearly supports Israeli injustice, oppression and occupation.

Will America not hear the cries of the Palestinian people who are being occupied and oppressed by a regime that is totally devoid of any sense of fair play, justice, ethics or sensitivity!

Perhaps, America need to ask themselves whether the words – ‘In God We Trust!’ still holds real and dear in their lives!

 Our campaign against RACISM of all forms!
