Obama and Netanyahu Rant Post-Paris Attacks

Obama and Netanyahu Rant Post-Paris Attacks

by Stephen Lendman

Obama and Netanyahu partner in each other’s high crimes, proliferating state terror, blaming victims for their ruthlessness.

Following a meeting with Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the G-20 summit, Obama vowed to “redouble” America’s war on ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

Killing innocent people in Paris is an attack “on the civilized world,” he blustered - ignoring a near-certain false flag, Washington’s dirty hands likely involved, complicit with France and perhaps Israel, as well as US support for the terrorist scourge he claims to oppose.

Expect escalated war on humanity ahead, maybe doubling down on today’s horrors. What nation does Obama plan to attack next? Is US ground invasion of Syria coming? Will America risk direct confrontation with Russia and/or China?

Put nothing past lunatics in Washington - or Israel. Maan News reported Netanyahu “liken(ing) Paris attacks to Palestinian violence” - his usual blame the victims posturing, reigning terror on defenseless civilians, blaming them for his high crimes.

“(I)nnocent people in Paris, like those in London, Madrid, Mumbai, Buenos Aires and Jerusalem, are the victims of militant Islamic terrorism,” he ranted, adding:

“As I’ve said for many years, militant Islamic terrorism attacks our societies because it wants to destroy our civilization and our values.”

Fascist Israeli officials vow to continue waging war on Palestine. Defenseless civilians are being extrajudicially executed daily, many others injured and/or mass arrested.

State-sponsored terrorism is official Israeli policy. On Sunday, heavily guarded extremist Israeli settlers again stormed the Al Aqsa Mosque. Accompanied by soldiers and police, they’re coming almost daily - willful provocations where they don’t belong, escalating tensions more than already, looking for confrontation.

Tight restrictions on Muslims entering Islam’s third holiest site are imposed while they’re there. Najeh Bkeirat heads Al Aqsa’s Islamic education department. He believes current resistance must meet at least three demands with regard to the Mosque and  occupied Jerusalem:

  • prevent extremist settlers from entering the compound where they don’t belong, along with unrestricted entry for Muslims;

  • assure freedom of movement for Palestinians throughout the Territories; and

  • end East Jerusalem’s militarization and persecution of its Palestinian residents.

Israel must be held accountable for its crimes, he said. Revoke Oslo because it breaches its provisions. Resistance is a starting point for confronting occupation harshness and ending it - especially the Judaization of Jerusalem and unannounced plans to replace Al Aqsa with a third Jewish temple, a cause for holy war if instituted.

Palestinians are being brutalized more than ever, Bkeirat explained, their rights entirely ignored, PA officials doing nothing to help their beleaguered people, suffering under the yoke of Zionist extremism.

Daily bloodshed throughout the Territories reveals it best. A day earlier article said Palestine burns while Parisians mourn. An entire population is being brutalized, terrorized by Israeli viciousness.

Worldwide support for Parisians in mourning ignores Palestinians’ longstanding suffering. They’re on their own like always, struggling for freedom with their bare hands and redoubtable spirit alone.
