Mazel Tov! Netanyahu

by Oui Thu Dec 29th, 2022 at 08:23:38 PM EST

Of three controversial leaders, Prime Ministers Boris Johnson, President Trump ... Netanyahu is back in power, America's closest ally in he Middle East and just as religious, bigoted and fascist as its sponsor, the United States of America. As the oppression and occupation of the West Bank continues with more military force.

Return of Netanyahu Defines End of Democracy | Oct. 30, 2022 |

A political career of hate, incitement that led to the murder of Yitzhak Rabin, sabotaged the Oslo Accords and joined Ariel Sharon as the butcher of Palestinians, Iranian scientists and gave support to the Neocon goal of a NWO starting in the Middle East by overthrow of leaders of sovereign nations. A bit of new international boundaries as we went along. No problem whatsoever with an ally, the most powerful military force on Earth. Many war crimes and crimes against humanity were covered-up or protected by a false impunity.

Arab News Reuters | Palestinians say UN vote on Israel's occupation 'a victory', 31 Dec
[...]
The Hague-based ICJ, also known as the World Court, is the top UN court dealing with disputes between states. Its rulings are binding, though the ICJ has no power to enforce them.

The request for a court opinion on Israel's occupation of the Palestinian territories was made [30 Dec] in a resolution adopted by the General Assembly with 87 votes in favor. Israel, the United States and 24 other members voted against, while 53 abstained.

"No international body can decide that the Jewish people are 'occupiers' in their own homeland. Any decision from a judicial body which receives its mandate from the morally bankrupt and politicized UN is completely illegitimate," Israel's UN Ambassador Gilad Erdan said in a statement ahead of the vote.
[...]
The ICJ last weighed in on the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians in 2004, when it ruled that an Israeli separation barrier was illegal. Israel rejected that ruling, accusing the court of being politically motivated.

"our local Tuscany"
At a ceremony Sunday, [tourism minister Haim] Katz said he would channel resources to promote tourism in the West Bank. "We will invest in areas that may not have received sufficient support to date," he said. "For example, our local Tuscany in Judea and Samaria," he added, using the biblical term for the West Bank favored by religious and right-wing Israelis.

The West Bank settler community has developed a small tourism sector that includes hotels, bed and breakfasts and wineries. Israel considers these industries to be part of the country's broader tourism sector, while international human rights groups have said they deepen control of occupied territory.

Quite interesting entry by year ...

ICJ -- Declarations recognizing the jurisdiction of the Court as compulsory

The States parties to the Statute of the Court may "at any time declare that they recognize as compulsory ipso facto and without special agreement, in relation to any other State accepting the same obligation, the jurisdiction of the Court" (Art. 36, para. 2, of the Statute).

Each State which has recognized the compulsory jurisdiction of the Court has in principle the right to bring any one or more other States, which have accepted the same obligation, before the Court, by filing an application instituting proceedings with the Court. Conversely, it undertakes to appear before the Court should proceedings be instituted against it by one or more other such States.

The declarations recognizing the jurisdiction of the Court as compulsory take the form of a unilateral act of the State concerned and are deposited with the Secretary-General of the United Nations.

On 4 July 2018, Palestine deposited in the Registry of the Court a declaration ...

The big three are lacking: China, Russia, United States 🙃

Quite amazing the demonstrations near the Carnegie Peace Palace which houses the Highest International Court in The Hague.

US hasn't signed on to the domestic provisions of the Geneva Conventions either.  Can't imagine why that would be.

Geneva Conventions and their additional protocols

Despite being signatory to the Conventions, there are some notable and often-criticized U.S. cases involving conduct that would otherwise be prohibited by the Conventions, such as Hamdi v. Rumsfield (2004). In Hamdi, a U.S. citizen was accused of being a member of the Taliban forces on U.S. soil as an "enemy combatant," and was detained by unilateral Executive decision.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the validity of his detention.

Dutch government in very close ties to the Mossad, an autonomous annex at Schiphol airport, partner Nine Eyes, joint operations FBI, CIA and MI6. Covert transport US weapons and munitions through cargo flights via Amsterdam, airport security by Israeli corporation, police and intelligence wire taps by Israel, El Al flight 1862  Boeing 747 cargo plane crashed on Bijlmer high rise apartments in 1992. Israel refused to cooperate and divulge documents of toxic military goods. Many years later it became known precursors chemical warfare were on board.

Arsen Ostrovsky  @Ostrov_A

Must say, quite disappointing also to see Israel's Abraham Accords allies from UAE, Bahrain and Morocco, also join the horde in voting against Israel.

Join "horde" ... as in Borrell's "jungle" ... a fascist description.

Israeli Defense Ministry goes on trial for Corrie death

the Israeli Defense Ministry will go on trial as a court hears a case filed by the parents of an American woman run down by an Israeli military bulldozer in Gaza, in March 2003.

A civil suit seeks to hold Israeli forces responsible for the death of Rachel Corrie, a 23-year-old activist who was crushed to death as she protested a Palestinian home from demolition in the Gaza Strip.

"We claim that her assassination was intentional," or, at the very least, that the army is guilty of "huge negligence," Hussein Abu Hussein, the attorney who filed the petition on behalf of Corrie's parents, commented.

Abu Hussein cites the state's acknowledgment of the fact that Corrie and other members of the International Solidarity Movement--a Palestinian-led peace organization that advocates non-violent means of resistance to the Israeli occupation--were demonstrating in the area for several hours before Corrie was struck by the bulldozer. He also points out that Corrie was wearing a fluorescent orange vest to increase her visibility.

The worst of the worst ... Bibi Netanyahu as the face of white supremacy and fascism in the Jewish State of Israel. Netanyahu instigated the War on Terror and Islamophobia by equating the struggle of the Palestinian people for their own state with Al Qaeda terror. An ugly person, much worse than Ariel Sharon, the butcher of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, Sabra and Shatila massacre.

What did the Mossad know before the attack on America on 9/11?

On the New Jersey side two Israeli's were overexcited with joy when the plane struck the first tower. Both were Mossad agents and were quickly deported to Israel. National interest and Israel's security, we can deliver on airport and flight security, we know how and have the intelligence  ...
