Bibi’s Official Genocide Policy 148

Much is made in the rush to war with Iran of Ahmadinejad’s alleged saying that Israel should be “wiped off the map”. I am not an Iranian speaker and not qualified to enter the debate as to whether that is, or is not, an accurate statement. I view Ahmadinejad as a thug anyway, irrespective of any linguistic quibble.

But it is quite astonishing that Netanyahu’s decalred, published and open intention to wipe the Palestinians from the map gets nil publicity in the west. The source for this is impeccable: Likud’s party platform as presented on the website of the Knesset.

This is absolutely compulsory reading for anybody who was taken in by the opposition to Palestinain statehood “without negotiation” as explained by the Israeli stooges in western governments. This is the actual, official Israeli policy:

The Jordan Valley and the territories that dominate it shall be under Israeli sovereignty. The Jordan river will be the permanent eastern border of the State of Israel.

So Likud says all of the West Bank belongs to Israel

The Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza are the realization of Zionist values. Settlement of the land is a clear expression of the unassailable right of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel and constitutes an important asset in the defense of the vital interests of the State of Israel. The Likud will continue to strengthen and develop these communities and will prevent their uprooting.

This clearly claims all of Gaza – and Judea and Samaria – as land to which Israeli people have an “inalienable right”. It is the apotheosis of religious fanatic claims to a “Greater Israel”, elevated into the policy of the ruling party.

Jerusalem is the eternal, united capital of the State of Israel and only of Israel. The government will flatly reject Palestinian proposals to divide Jerusalem, including the plan to divide the city presented to the Knesset by the Arab factions and supported by many members of Labor and Meretz.

So all of Jerusalem is to be taken too.

Likud specifically lays claim to absolutely all of the lands under at least semi-autonomous Palestinian control, and they say these claims are inalienable. There is no hint of any room for negotiation in the language of these statements. The UK and US governments who pretend that it is the Palestinians who are blocking negotiations, do so knowing they are lying, and because the majority of our politicians are tied in to the Israeli lobby with golden cords.

Netanyahu’s platform, claiming every inch occupied by Palestinians, is a programme for genocide. It can be described as nothing else.

There is absolutely no room left to argue that Netanyahu does not intend to wipe the Palestinians off the map.

    Correction: reported NY stock exchange did succeed in opening on time. All surrounding intersections, however, blocked by ‘occupiers.’

    When I was 12 years old, my parents took us on holiday to Casabalanca for two weeks stay. During our last few days, we were out shopping for few essentials before we flew back only to be robbed by a young man who grabbed and ran away with my mothers necklace.

    Upon pursuing, we were all shouting “thiev, thiev, catch him” etc. But the robber himself also shouted and repeated every word we were saying including the accented Arabic words. As a result, there were lots of bemused faces all looking for who the thiev was, until we got tired and they guy escaped.

    When I see Jewish lobby groups and arms traders, I always remember that Casabalanca thiev.

    This is just tokenism I’m afraid – nearly all stock exchange trading nowadays is done on computers that are located in various banks all over the place.

    The people most affected by such displays are probably the security and administration people in the Stock Exchange and in the main they are just ordinary people who probably don’t receive megabuck salaries and don’t deserve the hassle or intimidation. Perhaps, those who wish to bring down capitalism should first try and understand how it actually works.

    That dreadful ZBC pair Ben Brown and Fiona Armstrong are presenting on News 24. (He interviewed the disabled wheelchair bound protester Jody McIntyre aggressively and she was insulting to Darcus Howe at the time of the Tottenham riots). They are really enjoying telling the viewers about riot police firing stun grenades and tear gas at the austerity protesters in Athens streets and how the riot police in the US are removing the Wall St protesters, quite roughly judging from the footage. This followed a report on eviction notices being pinned to the Occupy protesters outside St Pauls.
    What a pair of shockers. Just loving it.

  • Responsible Citizen

    @ Stephen
    1) Tokenism? You favour, then, a mass response a tad more militant?
    2) Don’t believe all you read in the newspapers. US ‘occupiers’ include right-wing libertarians, i.e. Ron Paul supporters very much in favour of capitalism. What they appear to object to is corporate corruption on a vast scale in cahoots with State criminality precisely because it endangers the very future of capitalism itself. Perhaps this is what you mean by ‘how it actually works’?

  • Jack

    “The Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza are the realization of Zionist values.”

    Clearly, ‘lebensraum’ and ‘anschluss’ don’t sound quite so bad when said in Hebrew…

    We’re looking at the Fourth Reich here – in fact on a long-term global scale, including their well-nigh unassailable lobbies in western governments, possibly more damaging than even the Third…

  • Mary

    Absolutely no trace of the ConDem much vaunted ‘transparency’ in the flogging off/giveaway of Northern Rock, owned by us the taxpayers unless I am very much mistaken.
    Any other bidders invited in?
    If so, who were they and what were they offering?
    Why was the deal kept totally secret?
    When did dicussions start?

  • Mary

    More on the Branson deal.
    Northern Rock should, then, benefit from the Virgin brand, and there can be little doubt about Mr Branson’s personal interest in the financial arm of the business.


    In 2004, he invested £90m to gain 100% ownership, unlike some Virgin-branded companies that do little more than license the name.
    In 2010, Virgin sold a 21% stake in its financial arm to US billionaire Wilbur Ross for $100m, who has made much of his money investing in distressed assets.
    Indeed, the acquisition of Northern Rock is in part being funded by Mr Ross, who bought his stake in Virgin Money precisely to take advantage of what he saw as cheap UK banking assets following the financial crisis.
    Both parties will be determined to make Virgin a success in the banking world.
    Ross has already got his hands on the Irish.

  • Arsalan

    Craig you say Ahmedinjad is a thug?
    I say he isn’t thug enough.
    We need to have thugs for leaders if we are going to with stand attacks by Israel and the Zionists who fight Israels wars in Britain and America.

    We need a strong leader who will do what it takes to wipe Israel off the map.
    I don’t know if Ahmedinjad said this, or that. Because I can’t speak Persian too.
    But I say it.
    Israel was carved out of the Middle East by a bunch of White men in the UK and France.
    The people who live their didn’t fight for the creation of those borders.
    They didn’t sell their lands or give it away to a bunch of white people from France, UK, America and Russia who claim to be Jews.
    That country belongs to the people who own it, and they didn’t choose Israel as a name for it, or even part of it.
    It is called Palestine, and it is there land.

    It would be nice if this transfer of authority would be done peacefully, in the South African model.
    Where the white rulers would hand power over to the dark skinned natives.
    But it doesn’t look like the Zionists will choose that course.
    And I am not going to hold my breath and wait for the magnanimous white man to, to force them to.
    So it is up to us, to liberate ourselves.
    We need to reunite the Middle East in to What it was before white men from Britain and France invaded, and imposed the borders and nation states we see today.
    Once we do that, that is when we need a real thug for a leader, who will liberate Palestine, All of it.

    Two more deaths of British military in Afghanistan have just been announced, making three this week. When is it going to stop? Order up some more red poppies.

  • John Goss

    One of the commentators on the Mondo Weiss article on Craig’s exposure of the Gould meetings (thanks for the link Johnf) has alerted me to the fact that there are now 3 Zionist ambassadors in Tel Aviv:

    “Jeffrey Blankfort says:
    November 16, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    You can count on Canada, as well, with Jon Allen, that country’s third Jewish ambassador to Israel. Taken together with Gould and the US with its equally avowed Zionist, Daniel Shapiro, representing the Obama administration, this delivers to Israel the ambassadorships of three of the four major English speaking countries.”

    Worrying indeed!

  • Frank FitzWalter

    Larry Levin: total deaths in WWII were 60 million, military and civilian. Twelve million were Russian. The six million figure for Jews is one of those magical figures like 40 days and nights, or three little pigs, three Billy Goats Gruff. It is not meant to be an accurate headcount. To my mind even six Jews killed by Nazi methods would be too many but it does not excuse Zionazis using their methods as a manual for Israeli’s treatment of the Palestinians.

  • Duncan McFarlane

    Completely agree Craig. The Platform is from 1996

    I can’t find any newer version of it though – possible it’s not been changed, or maybe newer versions have been written only in Hebrew to make it less likely that the public in Israel’s foreign allies will find out what it states.

    Every Israeli government, whichever main party is leading it (Likud, Labor or Kadima) refers to the West Bank by the Biblical term ‘Judaea and Samaria’, showing that they base their claim to it on religious fundamentalism just as much as Hamas and wouldn’t know secular democracy if it stupidly massively funded and armed them (oh wait it does).

    Coming back to the Branson deal, the Northern Rock Bank was bailed out from people’s taxes for £1.4 BILLION and then sold to Virgin for HALF that amount.
    This is in essence a precise illustration as to why the 99% are moving onto the streets in protest. This demonstrations are the only positive outcome of the massive financial mess that has resulted from ten years of illegal, ridiculous wars and the purchase of machinery *for* wars. Even Greece, a bankrupt country, is still prepared to purchase half a dozen naval warships instead of spending money on education, the welfare of its people and programs to improve employment.
    The actions taken on the Greek people are really a stark warning of what is around the corner for us, the British people – COSTS FOR HEALTH, EDUCATION, WELFARE & SOCIAL PROGRAMS can only be met by the poor, the so called ‘Big Society’ while dormant accounts are pilfered and that money spent on deception – to appease us.
    This is the reality and the crisis is about to get worse, a lot worse.

  • Duncan McFarlane

    Good to see that Responsive Citizen – thanks for posting it. They’ll have difficulty presenting a former police captain as being disreputable when he says the police used unnecessary force and violence and that there was no justification for forcing the protesters out.

    Pepper spraying entire crowds including 82 year olds and pregnant women shows what kind of people are in the police force these days and what kind of elected representatives are giving the orders.

  • Mary

    John – Jeffrey Blankfort also said in that comment on Mondoweiss:
    ‘I would like those who occasionally post here and who insist that the US support for Israel is in its national interest, both militarily and for commercial reasons, and that Washington is calling the shots in the relationship, to explain the reasons that both the UK and Canada also genuflect to the dictates of the Jewish state.’
    He is quite right.

  • Mary

    Yes Mark. Have you seen this? Wonder what ‘ghost assets’ we have in the UK.

    New Phase of the Global Debt Crisis: Widespread discounting of Western Public Debt
    30,000 billion US dollars in ghost assets will disappear by early 2013

    Global Europe Economic Anticipation Bulletin (GEAB) No 59


    As we come to the end of the second half of 2011, it is evident that $15,000 billion in ghost assets have gone up in smoke since last July, just as was anticipated by LEAP/E2020 (GEAB N°56 ). And, according to our team, this process figures to continue at the same rate throughout the year to come. Indeed we estimate that, with the introduction of a 50% discount on Greek government debt, the global systemic crisis has entered a new phase: that of the generalized discount on Western public debt and its corollary, the fragmentation of the global financial markets. Our team believes that 2012 will bring an average discount of 30% of total Western public debt (1), plus an equivalent amount in loss of assets from the balance sheets of worldwide financial institutions. Specifically, LEAP/E2020 anticipates the loss of 30,000 billion ghost assets by early 2013 (2), with an acceleration in 2012 of the partitioning process of the global financial market (3) into three increasingly disconnected currency areas: Dollar, Euro, and Yuan. These two phenomena feed into each other. They will also be the cause of a sharp decline of 30% on the part of US currency in 2012 (4), as we announced last April (GEAB N°54 ), which will occur amidst a sharp reduction in demand for the US dollar and the worsening of the US governmental debt crisis. The end of 2011 will therefore see, as anticipated, the trigger of the European debt crisis detonating a US bomb.

    World powers have agreed a draft resolution, which expresses “increasing concern” over Iran’s controversial nuclear programme.
    The document by the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany comes amid fears of “possible military dimensions” to the programme.
    The text is to be discussed at a meeting of the UN nuclear watchdog, the IAEA, later this week.
    The IAEA proposes sending a high-level mission to Iran to address the fears.
    Tehran says its programme is for peaceful purposes.

    Seeing this old lady peppersprayed makes one’s blood boil. Apart from talking to my MP today, accidentally, by chance, I also talked to a chap from the occupy Norwich campaign, he says that they are supported by the Greens on the council and I advised them to get their private phone numbers so they can be present when they get finally evicted. Surrounding businesses are as yet friendly and they ‘ordered in’ some elves so as not to be accused of ruining Christmas.

    “as to why the 99% are moving onto the streets in protest”

    The 99% are doing no such thing – perhaps you learnt your counting skills from those elections that you believe to be democratic.

    I also note that you and Mary are missing one of the main things about the Northern Rock sell off – which is a lot more transparent than Mary makes out. It sale was announced to parliament by Osborne in June (and on the HMT website) and the offer document has been pretty freely available within the City (you have to advertise things in order to sell them) and there have been at least 3 bidders who went public. But the real point if you go and look at the UKFI website is that the sale price for the good bit of Northern Rock was £947m (if you include the deferred bit of the consideration of £200m and even some of that is iffy as Virgin does have a strict contractual obligation to repay £150m of it) is rather less than the value of the net assets handed (valued at £1122m per the accounts as at 30 June). So George has given the bearded one a nice gift of nearly £200m. Now it may be the best offer that the Govt received (and it probably is – as we would hear from the losers pretty quick if it wasn’t) but one really needs to ask why George was flogging off a bank in current conditions especially when no else in the City is selling or floating anything at the moment. This is the real scandal – but unfortunately the tent people have been too busy with their gesture politics to cotton on.

    Mary posted the BBC link on the “…plot to attack Iran thread” re Odinga’s visit to Israel, a story mostly ignored by the MSM:

    14 Nov: BBC: Israel-Kenya deal to help fight Somalia’s al-Shabab
    Kenya also needed Israel to provide vehicles for border patrols and equipment for sea surveillance to curb piracy off the East African coast, he (Kenyan Internal Security Minister George Saitoti) said…
    The statement quoted Mr Netanyahu as promising to help build a “coalition against fundamentalism” in East Africa, incorporating Kenya, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Tanzania.
    Israel’s President Shimon Peres had promised to “make everything available” to Kenya to guarantee its security within its borders, the statement said…

    Washington Post and a couple of others only reported the Kenya part of the story, with no mention of the other countries being targeted, once they could frame it as al-Shabab making “threats” (in response):

    15 Nov: Telegraph: By Mike Pflanz, Nairobi: Israel increase in support for Kenya’s al-Shabaab battle draws fresh threats
    Because “Christian” Kenya was reaching out to “Jews”, Muslims had “a responsibility” to act, said a spokesman for al-Shabaab, the Somali jihadist group…
    “This move will give [al-Shabaab] room to push the perception that this is not just Kenya fighting for itself, but that it is a coalition of Christian or non-Muslims fighting against Muslims,” said Andrews Atta-Asamoah of the Institute for Security Studies in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital.
    “It would have been preferable to delay this, or to accept help covertly…

    re Gillard: as an aussie, i am amazed at how our government, whether left or right, has become so pro-israel in recent times. it wasn’t always this way. Dadon, who employed our PM’s (former hairdresser) partner, was close to Kevin Rudd as well:

    June 2010: Sydney Morning Herald: Gillard stands by partner over Israel job link
    Julia Gillard says she arrived at her views about Israel well before her partner Tim Mathieson took a job with the Israel lobbyist Albert Dadon…

    love the ambiguous headline below, and love how it’s Dadon who is the instigator of the resignaton!

    24 Sept 2010: Australian: Milanda Rout: Tim Mathieson asked to leave job when Julia Gillard became PM
    Albert Dadon says he told Tim Mathieson to resign from a sales job at his property firm as soon as Julia Gillard became Prime Minister…
    The businessman, who also has close ties to the Jewish community and established the Australia-Israel Leadership Forum, said The Age had portrayed him and the relationship he had with Labor unfairly…
    He said he raised money for both Liberal and Labor during the election — a “small amount” of $30,00 to $50,000 — and was not getting favours from either the state or federal Labor government.
    Mr Dadon said he met Mr Mathieson at a function with Ms Gillard three years ago and they had formed a friendship…

    Is the government right to sell Northern Rock to Virgin?
    Eager to return Northern Rock into the hands of a private company, the Treasury has agreed to sell a large part of the bank to Virgin for £747m – half the money taxpayers injected into the company last year. Should the government have waited and tried to get more money, or is it right to sell the bank now?, Thursday 17 November 2011
    19.5% Yes, it is the right decision
