Likudnik Ziofascists Vote Unanimously to Annex the West Bank
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Israel is a Ziofascist police state masquerading as democratic. Its ruthlessness threatens regional and world peace.
Along with CIA operatives, Mossad agents are up to their eyeballs in instigating protests in Iran, including the killing of a dozen or more Iranians by snipers or hired assassins – Iranian police and security forces not responsible for what happened.
On Sunday, the Netanyahu-led Likud Central Committee, its governing body, approved a non-binding resolution, calling for the formal theft of West Bank land, all of it, along with allowing unlimited settlement construction and dispossession of Palestinian residents.
The deplorable resolution states:
“Fifty years after the liberation of Judea and Samaria, and with them Jerusalem, our eternal capital, the Likud Central Committee calls on Likud’s elected leaders to work to allow unhindered construction and to extend Israeli law and sovereignty in all the areas of liberated settlement in Judea and Samaria.”
The language is Orwellian. “Liberation” is land theft. “Jerusalem, our eternal capital,” defies international law.
“(U)nhindered construction” means ethnically cleansing unwanted Palestinians from their privately owned land, stealing it for exclusive Jewish development and use.
Likud is infested with Islamophobic extremists, including Knesset speaker Yuli Edelstein and key Netanyahu ministers.
He was expected to attend the meeting. He stayed away and remains silent about the outrageous vote, tacitly approving it.
It was a political statement with no ruling coalition party opposition, no denunciation from Washington, indicating tacit Trump administration support.
Silence on vital issues is acquiescence. Netanyahu, other Likudnik extremists, and an overwhelming majority of MKs oppose Palestinian self-determination beyond a meaningless bantustan state on worthless scrubland, excluding any portion of Jerusalem.
At Sunday’s meeting, Tourism Minister Yariv Levin spoke for other Likudniks, saying “(w)e’re here to state the obvious. The entire land of Israel is ours, and we will apply sovereignty to all parts of the land.”
Never as long as there’s an ounce of life left in the bodies and souls of millions of Palestinians, unwilling to surrender their fundamental rights to Israel’s criminal class.
Their members want apartheid viciousness over historic Palestine formally affirmed as the law of the land – subjugation replacing fundamental Palestinian rights, eliminating nonbelievers refusing to go along, knowing Israel has support and encouragement from Washington to do as it pleases.
A Final Comment
As expected, heroic 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi was indicted on multiple counts of assaulting Israeli security forces and stone-throwing – fabricated charges to imprison her.
Ziofascist prosecutors want her iconic presence out-of-sight behind bars to keep her silenced.
Her mother Nariman was charged with incitement for posting a video gone viral online, showing Ahed slapping an Israeli soldier twice her size in response to being slapped.
Self-defense is a universal right. The abusive soldier should be indicted, not Ahed, her mother or cousin Nour – she also indicted for aggravated assault and interfering with a soldier while carrying out orders.
Palestinians are governed by military law, guilt virtually automatic by accusation.
Kangaroo court justice is the law of the land when it comes to Palestinians – persecuted viciously, denied their fundamental rights, the world community doing nothing to help them per orders from Washington.
