Al-Hayat Al-Jadidah, Palestinian Territories

The American 'Knesset' is More Extreme than Israel's!

 

"Given the disjointed nature of Netanyahu's insolent speech, he may need to seek the aid of a psychoanalyst. Meanwhile, because the U.S. Congress knows the fate of those who oppose Israel, it was as though he was addressing hypnotized people who would have applauded an insult to George Washington."

Palestinian Territories - Al-Hayat Al-Jadidah - Original Article (Arabic)

Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu delivers a speech to a joint session of the U.S. Congress, during which he was interrupted for applause over 30 times. Netanyahu rejected the use of Israel's 1967 borders as a basis for talks with the Palestinians.

Even before Netanyahu's speech before the "American Knesset," we said in an article that it would be pointless to expect any change in the American arena, as they are extremists who hold enmity in their hearts. Indeed, the Israeli Knesset is less extreme than the U.S. Congress. Let us work on the Israeli front and especially with Israeli parties to persuade them that building more settlements would be fruitless in the face of the Arab revolutions. One can hope that the coming deluge will persuade Israelis of the need to move toward a just peace.

 

Given the disjointed nature of Netanyahu's insolent speech, he may need to seek the aid of a psychoanalyst. He contradicted himself even within the same sentence or phrase. Meanwhile, because they know the fate of those who oppose Israel, it was as though he was addressing hypnotized people who would have applauded an insult to George Washington; none wanted to end up like the Jewish activist now sitting in a hospital bed. If Netanyahu had called for a vote of no confidence in President Obama and for himself to be inaugurated president in his place, they would have applauded him and cheerfully bowed.

 

Netanyahu is a former furniture salesman who lived in the United States. He sold Congress a bill of goods, who bought them without bargaining. Any careful observer of the scene in Congress would have vomited. The representatives and senators lost all sense of dignity, looking like an even more extreme mob than the Knesset, applauding Netanyahu's every utterence, like numbskulls.

 

The disgraceful applause and 31 shameful standing ovations are like a hemorrhoid; Zionist piles which should be viewed by the United Nations next September [during voting on the recognition of a Palestinian State], to help the international community deliver its verdict on the U.S. occupation of Palestinian land and its support for settlements, murder, and displacement.

We must show the clip of Netanyahu's speech in Tahrir Square, rallies in Yemen and Tunis and the cities of Syria, so that the Arab uprisings aren't misled by America's hypocritical position. Showing this speech might force Arabs away from U.S. attempts to contain and tame the uprisings for the benefit of Israel.

This blindly biased and indiscriminate support for the occupation won't harm us, because Netanyahu gave the Americans two options - either Obama or himself. Peace will have the last word, even if there is a Palestinian war first. The Israeli people should not be tricked by the revolting American applause, because it will be them who will pay with blood for the export of American extremism and hostility toward all Arab peoples.
