Obama’s craven Israel speech

US president delivered two very different messages to his audiences in Ramallah and Jerusalem.US capitulates to Apartheid Israel 

US President Barack Obama made a speech on his recent arrival in Apartheid Israel that completely ignored Palestinians and gave US endorsement of Zionism and Israel “forever”. The transcript has been published by the Wall Street Journal owned by the pro-war, pro-Zionist, Jewish Australian-origin US media mogul Rupert Murdoch (see “Transcript of Obama’s speech arrival in Israel”, Wall Street Journal, 20 March 2013:).

Obama’s speech was made on the 10th anniversary of the illegal, war criminal, genocidal, Zionist-backed US Alliance invasion of Iraq (2.7 million post-invasion Iraqi deaths from violence or violently-imposed deprivation) and of the horrible  murder of American peace activist Rachel Corrie by Israeli war criminals. Obama’s speech was a litany of lies of omission and lies of commission and reveal him to be a pathological liar and a genocidal racist Zionist as well as being currently the world’s number 1 operating anti-Arab anti-Semite, Islamophobe, state terrorist, warmonger, drug pusher, mass pedocide and war criminal as carefully analyzed below, taking his 35 sentences in order of delivery (they are numbered below for your convenience).

1. “Shalom. (Applause.) 

Comment. “Shalom” or “peace” in Hebrew is an immense lie coming from the president of the nuclear terrorist US that has invaded over 30 countries since 1945, subverted all countries, threatens nuclear and greenhouse gas annihilation of the world, and is currently directly or indirectly involved in war criminal violence and terrorism in Columbia, Honduras, Occupied Haiti, Occupied Mali, Libya, Occupied Somalia, Occupied Palestine, partially occupied Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Occupied Afghanistan, and Pakistan, in a speech to a violent, race-based, genocidal racist, highly militarized  Apartheid Israel that has attacked 11 countries (Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Sudan, Tunisia, Libya, Uganda, the USA, Turkey), has violently occupied the territory of 5 countries (Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria), which currently occupies and has ethnically cleansed territory of 3 countries (Lebanon, Syria and Palestine), and which has in the last few weeks alone variously shelled or bombed Gaza and Syria. 1950-2005 avoidable deaths from deprivation in countries occupied in the post-1945 era by the US or Apartheid Israel total 82 million and 24 million, respectively (see Gideon Polya, “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950”, now available for free perusal on the web). Of course, racist Zionist Obama spoke in Hebrew, ignoring the 25% of Israelis who are not Jewish, the 20% of Israelis who are Arab-speaking Indigenous Palestinians, the 6 million Arabic-speaking Palestinians who are forbidden to even step foot in their own country, and the over 4 million Arabic-speaking Indigenous Palestinians of the Israeli-occupied Occupied Palestinian Territories who have zero human rights.

2.  President Peres, Prime Minister Netanyahu, and most of all, to the people of Israel, thank you for this incredibly warm welcome.

Comment. By only speaking in English and Hebrew, racist Zionist Obama was offensively only addressing the 75% of Israelis who are atheist or religious Jews and rudely ignoring the 20% who are Arab-speaking Indigenous Palestinians and the 5% who are neither Jewish nor Arab. 

3. This is my third visit to Israel so let me just say tov lihiyot shuv ba’aretz. (Applause.)

Comment. The specific use of Hebrew rather than Indigenous Aramaic (the language of Jesus and of present-day Samaritan Palestinians) or Arabic (the language of 12 million Indigenous Palestinians) was offensive racism by Obama; see the comments for sentence #2. Indeed Obama didn't mention Indigenous Palestinians in his speech.

4. I’m so honored to be here as you prepare to celebrate the 65th anniversary of a free and independent State of Israel. 

Comment. The State of Israeli is neither free nor independent. It governs all of Palestine plus an ethnically cleansed part of Lebanon and an ethnically cleansed slab of Syria. East Jerusalem Palestinians gave been forcibly incorporated into Israel (a war crime), the 20%  of Israelis who are Indigenous Palestinian live as Third Class citizens under Nazi-style Apartheid Israel race laws, and the over 4 million Occupied Palestinians living in the Gaza Concentration Camp or under military rule in West Bank Bantustans have no human rights (see Gideon Polya, “Apartheid Israel excludes Occupied Palestinians from all provisions of  the Universal Declaration Of Human Rights”, Countercurrents, 20 May 2012 ).   

5. Yet I know that in stepping foot on this land, I walk with you on the historic homeland of the Jewish people.

Comment. Racist Zionist Jews have no more "right" to Palestine than Italians have to London (Londinium) founded by the Romans in 43AD and ruled by them for half a millennium. Palestine is the historic homeland of the Palestinians. Jewish people were merely ONE of numerous peoples living in Palestine about 2,000-3,000 years ago. The forebears of the present Indigenous Palestinians were the Semitic inhabitants of Palestine and participants in the agrarian revolution in the Fertile Crescent that was one major nucleus of human agrarian civilization. The Holy Bible (Genesis 15.18-21 ) refers to the complexity of the population of the region: “In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram [Abraham] , saying, unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: the Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.” There is no Egyptian record of the Exodus of the Israelites (see Shlomo Sand, “The Invention of the Jewish People”) but the Holy Bible refers to the inhabitants of Palestine to be ethnically cleansed by the Israelites, namely (South to North), the Midianites, Edomites, Amalekites, Moabites, Jebusites, Philistines, Canaanites, Ammonites, Amorites, Gileadites, Bashanites and Phoenicians (see Martin Gilbert, “Jewish History Atlas”). In 1880 some 500,000 Arab Palestinians lived in Palestine as compared to 25,000 Jews, half of whom were immigrants (see Gideon Polya, “Jesus was a Palestinian”, MWC News, 21 December 2012). Indeed Professor Shlomo Sand says that there was no large-scale Exile in circa 130 CE, that Jewish Israelis largely derive from Yemeni. Berber and Khazar convert to Judaism in the first millennium CE, and that the present Indigenous Palestinians are the cultural and ethnic descendants of the Jewish and non-Jewish inhabitants of Palestine at the time of Christ.  

6. More than 3,000 years ago, the Jewish people lived here, tended the land here, and prayed to God here. 

Comment.  Other peoples inhabited  Palestine as well ; see comments to sentence #5.

7. And after centuries of exile and persecution, unparalleled in the history of man, the founding of the Jewish State of Israel was a rebirth, redemption unlike any in history.

Comment.  There was no Exile of the Jews (see comments to sentence  #5) and the horrendous persecution of Jews that chiefly occurred under the Christians is in stark contrast to the 14 centuries of highly productive coexistence of Jews and Muslims. Indeed the WW2 Jewish Genocide or Shoah, the Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million killed, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation), was part of a wider Nazi German-imposed  genocide,  the WW2 European Holocaust in which 30 million Slavs, Jews and Gypsies were killed. Also forgotten in the false, racist, holocaust-denying propaganda of the Zionists  about only ONE “Holocaust”  was the WW2 Bengali Holocaust (6-7 million Indians deliberately starved to death by pro-Zionist Churchill with Australian complicity in 1942-1945 ) and the WW2 Chinese Holocaust (35 million Chinese killed through violence or war-imposed deprivation under the Japanese in 1937-1945). The State of Israel was created associated with an ongoing Palestinian Genocide (2 million Palestinian deaths from war or violently-imposed deprivation since 1936; 7 million Palestinian refugees; and over 4 million Occupied Palestinians highly abusively  confined with zero human rights (Google “Palestinian Genocide”  and the multi-author new book “The Plight of the Palestinians”) .

8. Today, the sons of Abraham and the daughters of Sarah are fulfilling the dream of the ages — to be “masters of their own fate” in “their own sovereign state.”

Comment. Racist Zionism is rejected by Orthodox Judaism as heresy and blasphemy, not just because of its genocidal racism but also because of a 2,000-year old Jewish theological tradition that Jews can only return to Zion (Jerusalem) after the Moschiach (the Messiah) arrives to tell the whole world about the glory of Adonai (the Lord) (see “True Torah Jews ).  To both secular and orthodox Jews the “State of Israel” grossly violates the beautiful idea of Jewish tradition of “the Kingdom of the Mind” that has found it’s most general and marvelous expression today in the international culture of science and medicine.

9. And just as we have for these past 65 years, the United States is proud to stand with you as your strongest ally and your greatest friend.

10. As I begin my second term as President, Israel is the first stop on my first foreign trip. 

11. This is no accident. 

12. Across this region the winds of change bring both promise and peril.

13. So I see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bonds between our nations, to restate America’s unwavering commitment to Israel’s security, and to speak directly to the people of Israel and to your neighbors.

Comments on sentences 9-13. Obama is trashing America’s reputation and pre-empting any sensible dialogue with Israel’s “neighbors” by offering absolutely no criticism  of the horrendous, continuing crimes of the genocidal racist, nuclear terrorist rogue state of Apartheid Israel and instead giving “unwavering commitment” to this endlessly war-making, genocidal, human rights–abusing  Apartheid state. .

14. I want to begin right now, by answering a question that is sometimes asked about our relationship — why? 

15. Why does the United States stand so strongly, so firmly with the State of Israel? 

16. And the answer is simple. 

17. We stand together because we share a common story — patriots determined “to be a free people in our land,” pioneers who forged a nation, heroes who sacrificed to preserve our freedom, and immigrants from every corner of the world who renew constantly our diverse societies.

Comments on sentences 14-17.  Obama is comparing 2 colonization-based states (“pioneers who forged a nation… and immigrants from every corner of the world who renew constantly our diverse societies”), America and Apartheid Israel,  that invaded and ethnically cleansed America and Palestine, respectively. The American Indian Genocide took several centuries and killed millions of Indigenous Americans through violence, deliberately and accidentally introduced disease and cold-blooded deprivation of the means for survival. Thus the key reason  for the Revolution of the 13 colonies in 1776 was to break the prohibition on Westward expansion that had been emplaced by the British as part of its policy of getting Indian support against the French. By 1844 the US had legislated to ban all Indigenous  Americans  from East of the Mississippi. Apartheid Israel was founded on the genocidal expulsion of 0.8 million Indigenous Palestinians in 1948 and it continued to expel, rob, and deprive Indigenous Palestinian  ever since in a continuing Palestinian Genocide. While America finally recognized the evil of institutionalized racism at home in the 1960s, Apartheid Israel continues the racist  crimes of the Deep South , Apartheid South Africa and Nazi Germany – the Palestinian Genocide has been associated with 2 million Palestinian deaths from violence or violently-imposed deprivation since 1936, 7 million refugees and an ethnic cleansing of 90% of the land of Palestine that now makes a “2-state solution” impossible. Indeed in 2013, at the same time that President Obama was unveiling a statue to honor Rosa Parks (who in 1955 refused to give up her seat in the Colored-only section of a bus to a White passenger; see “Rosa Park”, Wikipedia), the racist Zionist psychopaths of Apartheid Israel introduced a system of Palestinians-only buses in the Occupied West Bank (see “Israel to launch Palestinians-only bus service”, UK Guardian, 4 March 2013 ). In his craven support for the  racist Zionists,  Obama has made himself and Americans complicit  in these racist obscenities.   

18. We stand together because we are democracies. 

Comment.  This is the biggest lie of commission in Obama’s speech. Apartheid Israel is NOT a democracy – it is a democracy-by-genocide that is far, far worse than the former Apartheid South Africa.  The US is  a Murdochracy, Lobbyocracy and Corporatocracy in which Big Money of the Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist One Percent buys politicians, parties, policies, public perception of reality,  votes and political power.  Of 12 million Palestinians, 6 million are forbidden to even step foot in their own country that has been continuously inhabited by their forebears for thousands of years to the very dawn of agrarian civilization. Of 12 million Palestinians, only 13% are permitted to vote for the government ruling all of Palestine, namely the1.6 million Palestinian Israelis who subsist as Third Class citizens under Nazi-style. Apartheid Israeli race laws.  Indeed of 12 million Palestinian adults and children  only 6.7% are permitted to vote for the government ruling all of Palestine, namely the 0.8 million adult Palestinian Israelis, noting that 6.7% is the percentage of seats held in the Myanmar (Burma) parliament by Nobel Laureate Aung Sang Suu Kyi’s overwhelmingly popular National League for Democracy Party (see Gideon Polya, “Comparing Burma and Apartheid Israel”, MWC News, 4 April 2012 ). Over 4 million Occupied Palestinians have zero human rights, and after they overwhelmingly voted for Hamas in the democratic 2006 Occupied Palestinian elections held under occupier guns, the Hamas MPs were declared to be terrorists by Apartheid Israel and the US Alliance and either killed, imprisoned, exiled  or hounded into the Gaza Concentration Camp.   

19. For as noisy and messy as it may be, we know that democracy is the greatest form of government ever devised by man.

Comment. But Palestinians are overwhelmingly excluded from voting for the government ruling all of Palestine and ruling about 6 million Palestinians still living in Palestine se comment to sentence #18).  

20. We stand together because it makes us more prosperous. 

21. Our trade and investment create jobs for both our peoples. 

22. Our partnerships in science and medicine and health bring us closer to new cures, harness new energy and have helped transform us into high-tech hubs of our global economy.

Comments on sentences 20-22. The US and Apartheid Israel have also become “high-tech hubs” for development of high tech means of killing people (e.g. war criminal, civilian-targeting,  drone technology).    

23. We stand together because we share a commitment to helping our fellow human beings around the world. 

24. When the earth shakes and the floods come, our doctors and rescuers reach out to help.

25. When people are suffering, from Africa to Asia, we partner to fight disease and overcome hunger.

Comments on sentences 23-25. America (current population 314 million)  has an appalling record of subverting all countries in the world, and invading and mass murdering in over 30 countries since 1945 (read William Blum’s “Rogue State”). Apartheid Israel (current Jewish Israeli population 6 million; non-Palestinian non-Jewish subjects 0.3 million; Indigenous Palestinian subjects 5.8 million) has an appalling record of invasion, mass murder and ethnic cleansing in the Middle East,  backed the Apartheid regime in South Africa (to the extent of helping them develop nuclear weapons), and has been involved in genocidal atrocities elsewhere, notably the Guatemalan Indian Genocide (1960-1996 Guatemala excess mortality 1.9 million) and the Tamil Genocide in Sri Lanka (several hundred thousand killed) . Apartheid Israel through its racist Zionist Lobbies has subverted and perverted countries around the world, most notably those of the West. Apartheid Israel has been the major recipient of US foreign aid and thus this genocidal Apartheid state has contributed mightily to the Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust that has killed 1.3 billion people since 1950 (see Gideon Polya, “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950”).

26. And we stand together because peace must come to the Holy Land. 

27. For even as we are clear-eyed about the difficulty, we will never lose sight of the vision of an Israel at peace with its neighbors.

Comments on sentences 26 & 27. The Holy Land and the Middle East was at relative peace for centuries until the British invasion of the Ottoman Empire in WW1, the 1916 Anglo-French Sykes-Picot Agreement to divide the Arab world between Britain and France, the 1917 Balfour Declaration offering Palestine as a Home for Jews (actually an attempt to get traitorous Russian Zionists to keep Russia in the war against Germany), subsequent Zionist invasion,  dispossession, killing and ethnic cleansing of the Indigenous Palestinian inhabitants, British subjugation of Arabs (including  the use of poison gas against the Kurds) , the genocidal creation of the race-based state of Israel, Apartheid Israel’s further occupation of all Palestine and of Lebanese, Syrian and Egyptian territory, the creation of a nuclear terrorist Apartheid Israel and  endless war culminating in the Zionist-backed War on Muslims  that has killed 12 million Muslims from Mali to Myanmar since 1990 (Google “Muslim Holocaust Muslim Genocide”). Outstanding  anti-racist Jewish Israeli scholar Professor Avi Shlaim (Oxford University professor of international relations): “Brief review of Israel's record over the past four decades makes it difficult to resist the conclusion that it has become a rogue state with "an utterly unscrupulous set of leaders". A rogue state habitually violates international law, possesses weapons of mass destruction and practices terrorism - the use of violence against civilians for political purposes. Israel fulfils all of these three criteria; the cap fits and it must wear it. Israel's real aim is not peaceful coexistence with its Palestinian neighbors but military domination. It keeps compounding the mistakes of the past with new and more disastrous ones” (Avi Shlaim, “How Israel brought Gaza to the brink of humanitarian catastrophe”, UK Guardian, 7 January 2009).

28. So as I begin this visit, let me say as clearly as I can –the United States of America stands with the State of Israel because it is in our fundamental national security interest to stand with Israel. 

29. It makes us both stronger. 

30. It makes us both more prosperous. 

31. And it makes the world a better place.  (Applause.)

Comments on sentences 28-31. Craven US linkage with Apartheid Israel  is profoundly disgusting to decent, anti-racist people in America and around the world, has utterly trashed America’s formerly fine humanitarian reputation from “all men are created equal” to outstanding anti-racist Jewish American scholar Professor Noam Chomsky,  has bankrupted the USA (the national debt is now nearly $17 trillion), and has engendered  the evil of Muslim-origin non-state terrorism that in turn has proved the “excuses” for  disproportionate  US Alliance responses  (12 million Muslim deaths since 1990 in the US War on Muslims, 9 million Muslim deaths since 2001 in the US War on Terror) (Google “Muslim Holocaust Muslim Genocide”). One million Americans die preventably each year linked to the Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist  One Percenter Establishment commitment to a $5.5 trillion accrual cost of killing 9 million Muslims (half of them CHILDREN) this century, rather than keeping Americans alive at home (see Gideon Polya, “One million Americans die preventably annually in USA”, Countercurrents, 18 February 2012). 200,000 Americans have died from opiate drug deaths alone since 2001 linked US restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry as part of the Zionist-promoted War on Muslims (Google “Afghan Holocaust Afghan Genocide”). The US-Zionist-Apartheid Israel link has jeopardized US national security, has made America much hated and much weaker, has bankrupted America and has been a deadly and catastrophic disaster for the rest of the world. 18 million people die avoidably each year because the racist Zionist tail wagging the American  dog has diverted American energies away from peace and humanity to endless war and devastation in the Third World.

32. That’s why the United States was the very first nation to recognize the State of Israel 65 years ago. 

33. That’s why the Star of David and the Stars and Stripes fly together today. 

Comments on sentences 32-33. The US and the UK  backed the CIA-backed, race-based, genocidal  State of Israel  as a Western Crusader fortress to divide,  threaten and police the oil-rich Middle East in the interests of Western hegemony and cheap oil for the West. Thus outstanding  anti-racist Jewish American scholar Professor Noam Chomsky (linguistics, 77-Nobel-Laureate Massachusetts Institute of Technology): “The area of greatest concern is the Middle East. There is nothing novel about that. I often have to arrange talks years in advance. If I am asked for a title, I suggest “The Current Crisis in the Middle East.” It has yet to fail. There’s a good reason: the huge energy resources of the region were recognized by Washington sixty years ago as a “stupendous source of strategic power,” the “strategically most important area of the world,” and “one of the greatest material prizes in world history.”1 Control over this stupendous prize has been a primary goal of U.S. policy ever since, and threats to it have naturally aroused enormous concern” (Noam Chomsky,  “Imminent crises, threats and opportunities”, Monthly Review, volume 59, June 2007 ).

34. And that is why I’m confident in declaring that our alliance is eternal, it is forever – lanetzach.

Comment. Lanetzach means “forever” in Hebrew, so what is Obama saying? Forever racism, forever Islamophobia, forever anti-Arab anti-Semitism, forever Apartheid. forever invasion, forever war, forever theft, forever ethnic cleaning, forever denial of human rights, forever house demolitions, forever genocide, forever nuclear terrorism, forever mass murder of Palestinian children, forever global subversion? One supposes that “lanetzach” might well have been lost on many of the nearly 50% of people living under the racist Zionist regime of Apartheid Israel who are Arabic-speaking Indigenous Palestinians. Decent, humane, anti-racist people around the world certainly hope that the suffering of the Palestinian people will not be forever and indeed will be over soon as America runs out of money for war, violent racism and genocide and the American people wise up to the perversion of their country by the Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist One Percenters.     

35. Thank you very much.”

Comment. Obama was surely being disingenuous in thanking the racist Zionists of Apartheid  Israel whose traitorous racist Zionist colleagues in the US have endlessly white-anted him in Congress, opposed him in the elections, involved the US in endless, genocidal  wars against Muslims,  trashed America’s international reputation , bankrupted America, and been party to the preventable deaths of 12 million Americans since 2001. In this craven and dishonest speech Obama has trashed what little remains of his reputation. Obama no longer needs to be re-elected and the racist Zionists dominate American mass media, but one faintly hopes that some remarkable American journalist might yet ask racist warmonger Obama whether it was worth it -  whether the Palestinian Genocide (2 million dead, 7 million refugees),  the Zionist–backed War on Muslims (12 million dead, over 20 million refugees), 6,000 US servicemen dead,  hundreds of thousands traumatized and 50,000 committed suicide from participation in Zionist-backed wars, America bankrupted morally, spiritually and financially, and 12 million American preventable deaths due to the Zionist-backed War on Terror,  were worth it. Cowardly, racist warmonger Obama has given American endorsement of genocidal racist Zionism, Apartheid Israel and the Palestinian Genocide “forever”.
