Analysis of Biden's stance on Israel

Mohamad Elmasry:

Biden can be seen as the most pro-Israel leader in US history; he has a strong personal devotion & is a self-proclaimed Zionist.

For nearly 20 years, Israel has been trying to drag the US into a war with Iran, & due to Biden’s stance, the US is closer to that point than ever.

Biden has compromised for six months, following Israel almost on every step of a genocidal war.

From my reading of the history, it's fairly obvious that the Zionists who founded Israel always intended to eliminate the existing population. Aid in any form hinders their "final solution" to the problem posed by the existence of Palestinians.

It puzzled me why Israeli Zionism sits so poorly with what I see of Judaism. History offers a clue. Modern Israel is a British idea.

To this day, Israel is a tool. First of Britain, then of the US.

This is long (and I haven't finished reading it).

The text in the image is about a third of the way in. One final quote:
"This Churchill [Charles Henry (not Winston)] was well aware that there was no, as he put it, ‘strong notion among Europe’s Jews to return to Palestine.’ The desire of Jews to stay where they lived frustrated him."

I'd often wondered:
"This, then, was the moment of conception for two interrelated principles: one, no people exist in Palestine; two, the land must be taken with the force of technology ... contemporary Zionists debate who first came up with the slogan ‘a land without a people for a people without a land’, but there is consensus that it happened around the year 1840."

"... Christian Zionist Alexander Keith, who went on an expedition to Palestine in 1839 and somehow managed to return with the impression that this was a ‘country without a people’ crying out for the arrival of ‘a people without a country’."

"It now became a persistent theme of British commentary on Palestine that no people lived in that land. Shaftesbury informed Palmerston that Jewish colonisation would be ‘the cheapest and safest mode of supplying the wastes of those depopulated regions.’"

"Before Zionism was Jewish, it was imperial."

It would explain a lot that has been puzzling me:
"There is a misconception prevalent in the Arab world regarding Israeli-US relations. We keep hearing this lie about the Zionist lobby – that the Jews rule America and are the real decision-makers, and so on. No. America itself is the decision-maker. In America, you have the major corporations. You have a trinity of the oil companies, the weapons industry, and the so-called ‘Christian Zionism’. The decision-making is in the hands of this alliance. Israel used to be a tool at the hands of the British, and now it is a tool in the hands of America."

In 1986, [Joe Biden] told Congress: ‘There is no apology to be made for Israel. None! Israel is the best 3-billion-dollar investment we make. Were there not an Israel, the United States of America would have to invent an Israel to protect our interests in the region. The United States would have to go out and invent an Israel.’

Avi Shlaim on growing up as an Arab Jew in Israel

An Arab Jew born in Iraq, Shlaim describes his family being profoundly traumatized by Israel’s unilateral declaration of independence.

As a child, "he experienced humiliation & discrimination, as did all Mizrahis in Israel. His self-worth was severely undermined, he barely passed from one grade to the next, & the Zionist society saw in this underachievement a proof of his “primitive” background."

The events of recent days suggest we may be seeing the Israeli endgame take shape. Netanyahu's far right government’s goals are not limited to Gaza: it wants to take over all of Palestine and start a war with Hezbollah and Iran as well.

Israel deliberately murdered members of the only NGO capable of feeding starving Gazans. Israel is the evil side in this war. They started as a sympathetic victim, of course. But they are now the bad guys. The IDF is an army of children who murder civilians with glee. That will never be forgotten nor forgiven in history. Never. The Israeli right has made their nation toxic to the world.

How Protests Against War On Gaza And Racist Lynching Of George Floyd Are Related

The collective mourning elicited by the racist violence that claimed the lives of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and so many others galvanised demonstrations aimed at the systems, structures, and histories that enabled such racist state violence. Angela Davis writes.

Analysis

Brief History of the Ideology Guiding Benjamin Netanyahu: A wall that can’t be breached

In 1923, Zionist Vladimir Jabotinsky wrote "On the Iron Wall":

"Every native population in the world resists colonists as long as it has the slightest hope of being able to rid itself of the danger of being colonised.

“Zionist colonisation... can develop only... behind an iron wall, which the native population cannot breach."

The Zionist plan for the Palestinians is to kill them and drive them off their land by whatever cruelty is necessary, with the understanding that one day people will look back on it like the genocide of other indigenous populations saying "Yeah it was bad, but it's in the past."

The Zionists take a long view of history, understanding that all the outrage and backlash they're facing over Gaza right now will one day be irrelevant if they can carry out their plan for the territory today. They know that future generations of Israeli settlers will be able to say "Sure there was an ethnic cleansing in Gaza and a bunch of mass atrocities were committed, but that all happened before I was born; I had nothing to do with it. What do you want me to do, give up the home I've lived in all my life? That's nuts."

A spokesman for , accused Aipac of attempting to impose a narrow definition of what it is to be pro-Israel:

may hope to silence and intimidate political leaders who believe that settlement expansion, endless conflict and permanent occupation are harmful to Israel, the Palestinian people and US interests. Ultimately, however, these common-sense views are too popular, widespread and important to be suppressed.”
