Washington’s “pure, unadulterated hypocrisy at its most naked”


GET SOME #FACTS HILLARY! “Palestine Has to Be More Flexible…


By  Alan Hart | Redress | 6 October 2011

Alan Hart argues that the USA’s denunciation of Russia’s and China’s vetoing of the draft UN Security Council resolution condemning the Syrian regime’s brutal suppression of protesters while declaring its intention to veto Palestinian statehood and shielding Israel from UN censures of its crimes is nothing but “pure, unadulterated hypocrisy at its most naked”.

Russia and China’s veto of the UN Security Council resolution which condemned Syria over its brutal crackdown on anti-government protesters and contained a weak reference to the possibility of sanctions against Damascus proved (again) one thing: that despite torrents of soaring rhetoric to the contrary from our leaders, international politics is not about doing what is right and in the best interests of all nations and peoples, it’s only about the short-term, short-sighted, political self-interest of leaders and their governments. And the statement by US ambassador Susan Rice, described by the New York Times as “one of her most bellicose speeches in the council chamber”, was pure, unadulterated hypocrisy at its most naked.

But let us first of all be clear about the meaning of hypocrisy (hypocrite is from hypokrite, the ancient Greek for actor). The definitions of hypocrisy are “a feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not… the false assumption of an appearance of virtue or religion”. The synonyms for hypocrisy are “cant… dissembling… insincerity… piousness”. The antonyms are “genuineness… sincerity”.

If I were contributing to the updating of dictionaries, I would add another definition of hypocrisy: American foreign policy.

US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice and her masters “utterly failed, time and time again, to address the criminal policies of the Zionist … state of Israel, policies which present a far more urgent moral challenge and growing threat to regional peace and security than what Bashar al-Assad’s monster regime is doing in Syria”.

In her statement after Russia and China had vetoed and before she walked out of the Security Council chamber, Susan Rice said: “The United States is outraged that this council has utterly failed to address an urgent moral challenge and a growing threat to regional peace and security.”

This is, of course, the same Susan Rice who will cast the US veto to kill the Palestinians’ bid for Security Council recognition of their statehood (if the bid gets to the Security Council). It is apparently of no concern to her and her master that the Security Council has utterly failed, time and time again, to address the criminal policies of the Zionist (not Jewish) state of Israel, policies which present a far more urgent moral challenge and growing threat to regional peace and security than what Bashar al-Assad’s monster regime is doing in Syria.

Rice also said: “Today the courageous people of Syria can now see who on this council supports their yearning for liberty and universal human rights and who does not.”

Quite so, madam ambassador, but is it of no concern to you that almost the whole world (of peoples not governments) is aware of who on the Security Council supports the Palestinian yearning for liberty and universal human rights and who does not?

If there was a Nobel prize for hypocrisy, Susan Rice would have to be added to the list of nominees for it along with President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. (Question: What do those two gentlemen have in common? Answer: In the context of targeted assassinations by drones or whatever, it can be said that both are cold-blooded killers.)

On another matter, the jury in my mind is still out on the question of whether or not Professor Shlomo Avineri, the Polish-born Israeli political scientist, is a hypocrite. His most recent article is in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz with the headline “No realistic chance of permanent Middle East peace”. The following is its opening paragraph.

In his speech to the UN General Assembly, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas once again made a common Palestinian mistake: a Palestinian leader does not have to persuade the nations of the world, but rather the Israelis. A Palestinian state will arise only if the Palestinians convince the Israelis that they are indeed ready to live in peace and mutual recognition.

In theory, that makes a lot of sense, but it ignores the fact that most Israeli Jews have been brainwashed by Zionist propaganda and, as a consequence, need to feel threatened, need to believe they are the victims and not the oppressors. Put another way, most Israeli Jews do not want to believe that the Palestinians (the vast majority of them) have long been ready for peace on terms which any rational government and people in Israel would have accepted with relief.

That being so, there isn’t a snowball’s chance in hell of peace unless and until an American president has the freedom and the courage to use his leverage to compel Israel to end its occupation of all Arab land grabbed in 1967.

Supported by… AIPAC



Funded by….



And all those supporting it paying for this…



Last but not least….



Or listen to Jewish mankind with a real conscience



Don’t think it’s about “Arabs” or “Islam”… we are all Goyim!



Something to ponder about…
For who not sees or who’s eyes are still closes. IOA has become exactly and even worse than those, they feared and hated once themselves. Using the same atrocities, policies to oppress, ethnically cleanse and eradicate human beings. Creating a new Shoah (Holocaust) for the Palestinians in 1948 with Al Nakba, and sustaining it by hasbara and the world’s ignorance or at least those not using their own mind to reconsider the realistic facts. So Hasbara in 16 words explained:

“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it…”
~ Joseph Goebbels
