Scales of Inequality

‘Israel’s indiscriminate bombardment of Gaza…’, writes Anatol Lieven in The Guardian, which normally welcomes a spot of international aggressive intervention.

Some deaths are more equal than others?

How ironic that Biden and the ‘woke’ collective West who warn us of the threat of ‘white supremacy’ are being accused of …
‘… the West has one standard for white victims, and a much lower one for everyone else.’

Alexander Mercouris quotes from an article by Anatol Lieven in The Guardian.
About 9 minutes in…

‘… if Moscow and Beijing are content with a purely diplomatic and public relations victory, they do not need to do anything at all. US virtual silence in the face of Israel’s indiscriminate bombardment of Gaza is doing it for them. Yet again, the United States has used its UN security council veto to defend Israel, as the solitary opponent both of all the other UNSC members, and a large majority of the general assembly. As western (and some US) diplomats have remarked (off the record), unfaltering US support for Israel has shredded the Biden administration’s strategy of competing with China for influence in the “global south”.

Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the western reaction to it, the charge has been made across most of the non-western world (including by US partners like India) that the west has one standard for white victims, and a much lower one for everyone else. The Biden administration (and many European governments) have now in effect confirmed this.

Witness (in a widely circulated clip) the US national security council spokesperson John Kirby choking back crocodile tears over Russian bombardment of civilians in Ukraine, then justifying Israeli “collateral damage” in Gaza – although according to UN figures, Israel has already killed almost as many Palestinian civilians in two weeks as Russia has killed Ukrainian civilians in 20 months. Equally striking has been the refusal of the Biden administration to do anything to help the 500-600 Palestinian American US citizens trapped in Gaza. If anyone wants evidence to argue that in the eyes of Washington some US citizens are more equal than others, they need look no further than this.’

I note at the side of Anatol Lieven’s article at The Guardian online, there is a reference and quote to another opinion piece:
‘Gaza needs a humanitarian pause. Then we need a vision of where we go from here.’
Bernie Sanders.

Bernie sanders is a grotesque war mongering old Marxist Zionist who has supported just about every war the US Lobby has entered into. He’s the kind of official arsehole always given platform by the likes of BBC Radio 4.

Alexander says at 12 minutes, ‘Israel’s relations with Türkiye have, apparently, entirely collapsed.’
President Erdoğan has a record of using religious reference for political gain and siding with the Palestinian cause could be seen as siding with fellow Muslims in a cynical political ploy. However, his recent rallies in Türkiye have attracted enormous crowds and Türkiye is a highly significant military power; the second largest in NATO.

Israeli Diplomatic ties with Bolivia, Chile, Columbia and Bahrain have also been disconnected.

Meanwhile Nutty Netanyahu has gone completely over the top esoteric biblical nuts:
“You must remember what Amalek has done to you’, says our Holy Bible. 1 Samuel 15:3, ‘Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass…”

I sense Israel have over played their hand. I’m following Vanessa Beeley’s Telegram channel and the imagery is beyond appalling. Israel are committing murder on steroids. The Palestinians, Muslims, who ever is involved and affected, are never going to forget.

    So the insufferably Zionist, NeoCon, nauseatingly woke, Guardian has suddenly got a conscience has it? I don’t buy it, I don’t buy it for one second, something else is going on

    Is Netanyahoo deliberately committing national suicide? Have the globalists decided to end Israel with a regional war? Wtf is going on?

      The Guardian have readership sympathetic to Palestine.
      The atrocities are so glaringly obvious, they are impelled to acknowledge them.

      What’s going on? Perpetual chaos keeps everyone occupied.
      The end of Zionist Israel hopefully. How can anyone still think that this state founded on terrorism can remain? They hate their neighbours.

        Ukraine awaits them Ned.

        • NPP says:

          Many Israelis are dual citizens; they can return to the US, Eastern €urope etc.
          Some authentic Jews who sincerely belief in Judaism can remain within Palestine as they did.
          But, Zionist Israel does not do peace nor appeasement nor tolerance as far as history shows.

        I suspect that it’s far far more complicated than that Ned. We already know that both sides of this “war” are controlled by the same entities don’t we. So, in that sense then, this “war” is not real at all. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose

        Have the controlling reptiles decided to cancel Israel? As part of their wider gameplan, could well be. Why demonise them so overtly in the mainstream otherwise? Or maybe something else entirely. is going on. Time will tell I suppose

        We certainly live in momentous times and all indications point to massive changes coming up in the next few years. So it’s important not to succumb to their fear propaganda. That is currently intense in the mainstream and the alternatives too, which they mainly control of course

        This current Israel thing seems to be part of that too. I’d rate the chances that it is a natural organic event as less than zero

        • NPP says:

          It’s complicated.

          No, I do not know who controls this. I can speculate, but do not know. I do observe the carnage, evil and hypocrisy. It looks pretty real war to me; absolute carnage.

          I don’t do reptilians. If one ever reveals itself to me, I guess the trick is to laugh & avoid feeding fear to it..

          I am sick and tired of the same old self-identifying victims e.g. Maureen Lipton bemoaning how put upon they are. Few have been put upon as have the Palestinians in the last 75 years or so.

            But we are fairly sure that the Brit elite, and their operatives, are ever present in both zionism, and the muslim brothers [Hamas], aren’t we. Doesn’t really matter who the ultimate controllers are when they control both sides of this false “war” via their proxies does it. To repeat myself: “…in that sense then, this “war” is not real at all.”

            Images on a screen are just that, images. They are not real in any objective sense. Do they depict a real reality? Very unlikely, but who knows. Certainly not anyone who hasn’t seen for themselves what is going on. Further I refuse to spend any time looking at their images, other than the odd glance to keep up with their latest BS. It’s a waste of energy and there is sweet FA that I can do about any of this

            Reptiles is just a label for the bad guys, that’s all. Nothing to get hung up on. Are they really reptiles? Who knows. And focussing on reptiles, rather than my questions in the same paragraph, is a deflecting tactic. Is Israel about to be cancelled? Cui Bono?

            The demonisation of Israel seems like authorised policy by the reptiles to me. If they didn’t WANT you to know about their war crimes then you wouldn’t

            Victims are the modern saints. They are everywhere now, ubiquitous in the current BS woke paradigm

    Balfour was a rabid antisemite, apparently.
    What’s a semite?
    Was Balfour British? English?
    I assume I’m English. The ‘British’ do not seem to represent me.

    The bombing and death in Gaza appears to be real; not fiction. Yes, I may be fooled by false images.

    I try to be accurate with my words, hence I don’t do reptilians. Plenty here at TAP do.

    Goodness knows who pulls the strings on earth, but I wish Zionist Israel would sod off once and for all. They are a perpetual pain in the arse.
