ilmuroWords…
It’s an iron wall, a psychological wall. Hard to break through. The worst. Nevertheless, it doesn’t need anything more than what words can do to implement the power of those who found out the way to benefit of it.
First, terrorism. It should be the murderous and residual weapon of what’s supposed to be the weaker party. States with regular armies shouldn’t need to use terrorism. They do. Because it’s often cheaper and always misleading. Moreover, as they decide who is terrorist and who is not, they can use this mere noun as a powerful weapon, so that, by labelling the enemy in front of the world, they are able to cover all what they can’t reach with ordinary arms. It’s the strength of politics and deception.
What happens in Palestine without this word terrorism? What happens without the anti-semitism bullets, i.e. the Holocaust exploitation based on the blind sense of guilt of Europe, on the inner bad faith of the Zionists and on crass ignorance of a great part of the world?
And money…
And what happens – last but not least – without US money that was gained by blackmail thanks the Israel Lobby? In this latter respect, Israeli financing itself through the Lobby is the most profitable investment one can imagine. Pay one, gain hundreds.
Money, yes. That is not psychological. By the way, I would argue that there are also some people in the neighborhood, now and then, that sell their dignity and their brothers’ life for some loose change. But we can try not to unite people’s attitude with their leaders’ behaviour.

Heavy burden, then, upon Palestinian shoulders. I guess the last sixty years of Palestine history would have been otherwise very different. On the contrary, although Israelis have been experiencing a mere prevedibile reaction to any occupation, have benefited – since no one dares to expose their egregious crimes, thanks the omnipresent antisemyth-weapon – of the yearly award for the luckiest occupiers in the world.

UNSC Resolution 242

leave a comment »

A norm must be interpreted according to the ordinary meaning of the language, unless the result would be absurd. Moreover, a norm must have a practical meaning, otherwise it would be void and useless. In this respect, it is obvious and necessary, firstly, to confer a meaning to the norm, even if its litteral content is ambiguous, instead of assessing that the norm has no meaning at all. Or, worse, conferring to it a meaning at will.
Insofar as UNSC Resolution 242 must have a meaning, otherwise being it absurd/useless, saying it requires an indeterminate withdrawal from (…) occupied territories would mean nothing, leaving undecided the rule dictated by the norm itself. And this is impossible.
A simple application of this principle is that Security Council Resolution 242 has a sole possible and almost litteral meaning. It requires Israel to withdraw from 100% of the territories occupied in the Six Day War. The goal of different interpretations whatsoever (as the one which claims that its extent is set on the necessity of subsequent direct negotiations between the parties) is aimed at devoiding the norm of any actual meaning. And that’s absurd and unlawful as well.
The try of depriving it of any meaning is unlawful and ineffective even if it’s endorsed by the very persons who, for opportunism, politics, or any other reason, purposedly gave it an ambiguous formulation.
In this respect, any interpretations aimed at sinking that norm, all the more if coming from Lord Caradon or others who purposedly have tried to take off any meaning from it, is ineffective and illegitimate, as the norm, once it has taken life, is in any case subordinated to the International Law, no more to political pressures, nor to the fancy of those who may have drafted it in bad faith and/or with reservations.
Moreover, insofar as the Resolution stated the “inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war”, and the relevant territories were undoubtely the whole of West Bank, East Jerusalem, Gaza, Golan and Sinai, any different understanding would be illogical, before being unlawful.

From octopus to cuttlefish

leave a comment »

Weakened by the vote of the General Assembly of the United Nations and the embarrassing ability of Palestinians of Gaza to stay alive in spite of the abysmal disparity of forces in the field, the drift pro-Israel limps. The Italian lobbyists fume in a desperate attempt to gain ground, now lost, that the history and the widespread move towards a fairer system refuse to grant, confining them to the edge of the ridiculous. While the state of Israel earns full widespread definition of rogue state, embraces and exposes his war policies and apartheid, the remnants of home israelism insist on spreading as they can – by the usual bad press and networks – a message now turned into lie in a desperate attempt to “facere de albo nigrum.” From octopus to cuttlefish, in fact.

Warning

with one comment

Provocation, reaction, disproportionate retaliation. Warning, it’s the same old trap, and now the Israeli warmongers are moving in a hurry. On the one hand, the PA circulated a draft resolution at UN in order to upgrade Palestine status as observer state, on the other hand, Hamas is getting recognition from all around the Arab world. Israel is scared. The (fake) issue of Iran nukes is cooling down a bit. Obama won the election. The risk, now, is the renewed search for a solution of the conflict, just while Israel hawks were on the way to ethnic-cleanse, little by little, the whole of the occupied territories. [1][2]
Warning! There’s another cast lead crime in sight.

[1] “We walked outside, Ben-Gurion accompanying us. Allon repeated his question, ‘What is to be done with the Palestinian population?’ Ben-Gurion waved his hand in a gesture which said ‘Drive them out!’” (Yitzhak Rabin, July 1948, in occasion of the conquest of Lydda and Ramla)

[2] “We’ll make a pastrami sandwich of them, … we’ll insert a strip of Jewish settlements in between the Palestinians, and then another strip of Jewish settlements right across the West Bank, so that in 25 years’ time, neither the United Nations nor the United States, nobody, will be able to tear it apart.” (Ariel Sharon, 1973, talking to W. Churchill III about Zionists’ aims)

Israelism

leave a comment »

“Palestine now for me is ’67 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital. This is now and forever … This is Palestine for me. I am (a) refugee, but I am living in Ramallah. I believe that (the) West Bank and Gaza is Palestine and the other parts (are) Israel.” (Mahmoud Abbas, Israeli television, November 1, 2012)

Not even the notorious bunch of Palestinian notables in the 30s (notwithstanding all their lightness and incapacity, or worse, during the British Mandate), dared sell their land as cheap as Abbas fantasizes. Is he in hope of a chair as what? Pretty disturbing the fact he’s gonna go in front of the UN, claiming he obliterates the right of return and bears in mind some 20% of the land and a smaller percentage of Palestinians for a future State. It goes without saying that he is not legitimated to sell cheap anything on behalf of the Palestinian people.
