As usual in these circumstances, Israel is trying to exploit the Paris bombings for its propaganda purposes.
Israeli and Zionist officials have been insinuating that the widely condemned terrorist bombings in Paris, for which the ISIS took responsibility, justified Israel’s crackdown on Palestinian resistance against Jewish colonialism, especially Israel’s lebensraum policies in the West Bank.
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has been quoted as saying that the Paris bombings should make France and other countries understand Israel’s war on Palestinian terror.
Netanyahu’s opportunistic remarks seem to have been motivated by two main considerations.
First, is the desire to alleviate international pressure on Israel to terminate the decades-old occupation of the Palestinian homeland and allow for the establishment of a viable Palestinian state.
And, second, Israel is always eager to see as many French Jews as possible immigrate to Occupied Palestine in order to augment the ranks of a dwindling Jewish population due to comparatively higher demographic growth among Palestinians.
As a pathological liar, Netanyahu understands the Palestinian cause as a matter of propaganda and public relations quagmire, not as real problems requiring real political solutions.
This is one of the main reasons that the conflict in Palestine has remained unresolved and blood on both sides continues to be spilled on a daily basis.
Indeed, hasbara, media lies, carefully produced sound-bites may help the Zionist state reap some short-term political capital in the capitals of the West. But it will never succeed in bringing the conflict even one centimeter closer to a historic solution.
I am quite sure that many wise people on the Jewish side of the isle realize this equation.
However, it seems that Netanyahu and cohorts are too insolent and too arrogant to listen to the voices of wisdom.
He thinks that brute military power alone guarantees Israel’s future, forgetting the fact that entire empires collapsed for reasons, not including military weakness.
Netanyahu, in a cynical way, always tries to lump Israel in the company of civilized countries.
But the peoples of the world do know too well Israel’s criminal credentials and that this state is actually a crime against humanity.
Have the peoples of the world forgotten Israel’s genocidal crimes against the people of Gaza in 2008-9, 2012, and 2014?
Does the world need to be reminded that the number of Palestinian children murdered by Israel in one month exceeds the number of civilians killed by ISIS ever since its appearance a few years ago?
Do we have to remind the world that unlike terrorist entities, Israel dropped heavy bombs on apartment towers packed with terrified women and children in Gaza, causing hundreds of civilian casualties.
In fact, in 3 hours, the Israeli army killed and maimed more innocent civilians at the Shujaiyya in Gaza than the victims of the Paris bombings last night.
My point here is not to belittle the criminal nature of the Paris bombings.
My point is rather to caution the world against hard criminal states such as Israel which is routinely perpetrating ethnic cleansing and other genocidal crimes against the Palestinian people and then plays the self-righteous card of identifying with the victims of the terrorist bombings in Paris.
In fact, Israel is behaving very much like the little Hitler of Damascus who has murdered and maimed a million Syrians while forcing more than 15 million others out of their homes, forcing them to flee death and seek safety all over the world.
Still, Assad has the audacity to shed crocodile “tears of sympathy” with the victims of terror in Paris, ignoring the fact that his genocidal terror against the innocent civilians of Syria made the terrorist bombings in Paris inevitable.
Likewise, Netanyahu and his “shitty state”, as a French diplomat referred to Israel a few years ago, goes on murdering Palestinians, murdering their children, destroying their homes, stealing their land, bulldozing their fields and narrowing their horizons. Netanyahu is raising his eyebrows every time he watches a Palestinian child throws a stone on Israeli military vehicle patrolling the West Bank.
And instead of honestly trying to find out what makes that child behave as such, the Israeli premier closes his mind and opens his big mouth, complaining about “Arab terror” and concocting corrupt analogies between the Nazis and Zionism’s victims.
But the world, including France, yes France, the US, Britain and Russia, is hypocritical par excellence.
Otherwise, Israel the perpetual crime against humanity should have been declared as such from the first moment it was created.
Indeed, had the world behaved moralistically then, the world would have been spared the terror of ISIS and other similar groups, whose violence, however despicable it might look, is an ultimate product or by-product of the much greater terror and violence committed by criminal players such as Israel, the US, France, the UK and now Russia.
Can there be a scandal more scandalous than the seizure and usurpation of Palestine by Zionism?
So to the West in general I say, please, don’t pretend to be innocent because you are not innocent.
