Stop this blind following of 'scriptural Puritanism' encouraging Zionist mindset to act exactly as 'Talibans.' Israel responds to UN vote by approving 3,000 new settlement units and plans to build in strategic West Bank corridor!! After this 90% of the World voted for a Palestinian state under President Abbas, how is it fair to make a declaration of 3000 new houses in the West Bank? United Nations endorsed a two-state outcome. Israel in its settlement decision last night in the E-1 corridor, endorsed a one-state outcome.
President Obama and Israel's American sponsors need to ask whether this one track Israeli mind is ''democratic'' or "apartheid" in its direction.
90% of the World voted for a Palestinian state under President Abbas. Out of 7.15 billion total global population:
1.357,000,000 said 'no' led by Obama administration.
2.358,000,000 'abstained' led by European Union.
3.6,000,000,000 for a 'Palestinian statehood and a peaceful coexistence.' i.e. 90%
If 'peace' is not given a chance now, will not the radicals claim that peace is an 'illusion' will only enhance? This is a colossal blunder, Obama administration blinked as he refused to apply the enormous influence at his disposal to maintain the 'freeze.' Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu dealings and conduct with Hamas is one thing; but to run down the West Bank and secular minded government led by likes of Abbas and Hanna Ashrawi is a strategic blunder. Obama should let Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu know that 'global democracy of planet earth ' demands acceptance of new realities. Give them a homeland. Freeze these illegal settlements now.
My open letter to Mr. Netanyahu:
''I don't think you will remember, but you were not the PM and I met you in the executive lounge of Grosvenor House Hotel in the late 90's . Your wife walked in her name was Sara, with all your security, I was with my boss from Kuwait he had not emerged from his suite, I was elated to see you after all, you were face of Israel on CNN when first Gulf war happened, you helped liberate Kuwait from a totalitarian Saddam Hussein.
I told you Mr Netanyahu, peace is the way forward, I thanked you what you did for Kuwait but requested you to be kind to Palestinians. Last night UN resolution implementation where a two state solution is a possibility for way out, don't throw President Abbas as a food for hungry vultures in Gaza. Instead of announcing 3000 new buildings, allow the Palestinians to live in their 'chickenpoxed territory,' don't play with ' foolishness of scriptural' authenticity.
Finish this war of dogma, grow up, remember Grosvenor House executive floor, the way forward is peace, love and cohabitation. Hamas no, but Abbas yes, Sir. This is the deal 6.1 billion people on earth has offered you, don't kill it, for sake of Israel and for sake of humanity. Yes 'Samson option exists,' but think big these scriptural myths will only lead to ultimate catastrophe. (''The Samson Option is Israel's alleged deterrence strategy of massive retaliation with nuclear weapons as a "last resort" against nations whose military attacks threaten its existence, and possibly against other targets as well.'') ''
Every megalomaniac within the Islamic world has hijacked Palestinian cause, this is the first time those 'hijackers of causes' like OBL can be stripped of any legality. Their idea 'that world is against Islam' and the Palestinian freedom cause is a 'global Jihad' is bankrupt now. The whole slogan is now pathetically devoid of any legitimacy. Nearly 6.1 billion people have supported the right of Palestinians, the world should not be punished any more with this imposed guilt of purported Islamic persecution. Buddhists, non-believers, Islamicsts, moderates, atheists all have said 'yes' to the statehood.
The General Assembly's decision to accept Palestine as a non-member may encourage new International Criminal Court prosecutor to open cases against Israelis and Palestinians for war crimes. The General Assembly's resolution unambiguously define Palestine's boundaries as the 1967 borders, Palestinians can legally maintain that every settlement that was built in sovereign Palestinian land is unlawful.
Morally on this planet Earth majority of the world population wants peaceful coexistence between the two neighbours, that is what this vote implies. It has legal ramifications for the Hamas, for Israel and for Palestine, it evokes accountability of war crimes under a universal court. The Geneva Convention's forbids "the transfer of civilian population of the occupying power to the occupied territory" and defines this as a war crime. So illegal transfers of populations to occupied territories can lead to prosecution of Israeli leadership guilty of expanding and growing settlements. So does Hamas and those Palestinians bent on terror will have to face, a new kind of music from the 'Justice from International Criminal Court.'
The world has spoken in unanimity for peace and security of Palestine and Israel's 'Muslim and Jewish inhabitants.' The warring factions amongst the Palestinians should realise that this issues has put the whole global peace at risk. They should now look and reset their priorities. International Criminal Court in April 2012, had rejected a Palestinian demand to examine Israel alleged war crimes during its Gaza action in 2009. The International Criminal Court said that only a state could request the court to intervene as Palestine was a UN "observer" not a "non-member observer state." Now International Criminal Court door is open. Instead of risking being treated as a war criminals, the 'rogue as well as democratic leadership' of the region can come to senses, the time and geography can be reshaped; to start a new beginning and a journey of hope.
