Israel spurns UN resolutions, other binding international laws, and ICJ rulings. It does so with impunity. It's been unaccountable for decades. Washington's support affords immunity.
Netanyahu calls Jerusalem sovereign Israeli territory. "Jerusalem was always ours and will always be ours," he claims. "It will never again be partitioned and divided."
He wants Palestinians dispossessed and removed. He wants unobstructed settlement expansions. He wants no restrictions put on Israeli "building in our sovereign capital."
He's getting away with it. He's not challenged. Western officials and media scoundrels support him. They call Palestinian territory "disputed," not "occupied." They suggest Jerusalem belongs to Israel.
They bow to Israeli Lobby bullying. They're in league with Zionist extremists. They proliferate pro-Israeli propaganda. They go out of their way to inflict harm.
Nonetheless, America and other countries maintain embassies in Tel Aviv. Jerusalem is international territory. Israel won't acknowledge it. Nor does AP, The New York Times, and other Western media scoundrels.
They turn a blind eye to international law. They ignore Israel's worse crimes. They spurn Palestinian rights. They let Israel get away with murder. Daily crimes against humanity continue. Ending them remains a distant hope.
