Netanyahu Addresses AIPAC

Netanyahu Addresses AIPAC

by Stephen Lendman

He’s a world-class thug, an unindicted war criminal. His deplorable remarks whenever delivered give demagoguery a bad name.

Via satellite, he addressed AIPAC participants, ignoring Israeli apartheid ruthlessness, its high crimes of war and against humanity, its opposition to peace, equity and justice.

“We must ensure that the forces of militant Islam are defeated,” he blustered.

Fact: America created “militant Islam.” Israel supports it like Washington and their rogue allies.

Netanyahu: Iran must be “prevented…from ever…developing nuclear weapons.”

Fact: Iran’s nuclear program has no military component - not now, not earlier, not planned. It supports a nuclear weapons-free Middle East. Nuclear armed and dangerous Israel prevents it - a regional and global threat.

Netanyahu: “More and more in the region and outside the region, around the world, realize that Israel is on their side.”

Fact: The US/UK/Israeli axis is humanity’s greatest threat.

Netanyahu: “Where terrorism threatens innocent people, Israel is there…”

Fact: Indeed, the worst kind of terrorism - state-sponsored.

Netanyahu: “Where people are suffering from hunger and thirst…Israel is there…”

Fact: Brutalized Palestinians yearn for freedom from its presence.

Netanyahu: “I am proud of the unique contribution Israel is making to the world…”

Fact: Its rage for regional dominance threatens Jews and non-Jews alike everywhere.

Netanyahu: “Israel’s hand and my hand is extended to all of our neighbors in peace.”

Fact: Peace and stability are anathema to Zionist zealots, fascist hardliners, and religious fundamentalists running Israel - prioritizing wars of aggression, related violence, along with vicious persecution of Occupied Palestinians and its Arab citizens.

Netanyahu thanked AIPAC for “standing with Israel.” It despicably fronts for its high crimes.

Stop AIPAC activists condemn Israeli militarism, racism, occupation, and hegemonic rage for dominance.

They welcome global activists for peace, equity and justice for all, joining in the most vital struggle of our time.

They want AIPAC’s stranglehold over US Middle East policy ended. They support international law over endless imperial wars.

They condemn high crimes committed by America and Israel. A better world isn’t possible as long as their rage for dominance goes unchecked.
