Phyllis Bennis in the Real News: Israel assassinated prime Gaza peace agreement negotiator / military leader, Ahmed al-Jabari, through a drone strike on Nov. 14 , 2012, repeating its 2008-09 tactic. (of resorting to violence as a dilatory move, when stymied by the logic of peace).

Earlier, Jabari had negotiated the exchange of the only Israeli soldier prisoner held, for 1027 Palestinian prisoners taken by the powerful Israeli army, aided by a military supporter.

In 1996, Israel assassinated another Palestinian prime negotiator while he was reading the final text of a peace proposal presented for consideration by Israel.


These military actions, along with Israel's violent occupation of Palestinian land and life by killing many of its residents, taking tens of thousands prisoners, expunging hundreds of thousands as refugees over the decades, and evading peace, deserves no further spiritual policy support from the global community.

People are interested in realizing human rights for themselves. The elite who have it, are in no hurry to universalize it. Given the current capability for instant communication within human consciousness through the Internet, even the rights once granted USA citizens seem a burden to the international 'money-cartel'.

In election 2012, the 'money-cartel' enabled and spent billions of advertising dollars through proxies, misrepresenting facts to the American Public utilizing the provisions of the SCOTUS 'Citizens United' Ruling of 2010. American citizens saw through the overall intent of the 'Identity-Theft' bestowed on corporations, and stopped the 'money-cartel' from stealing election 2012.
But that does not mean 'success' for the people: once elected, Representatives hardly belong to the people, as they are quietly taken over by the 'money-cartel'.
In general, good can be done by the people: Their time for non-violent action in the Middle-East has come, as successive Administrations have been neutralized from safeguarding Palestinian human and political rights.
On both fronts (Middle-East and USA), dehumanization of the people, comes from the same source: the 'money-cartel'.
The people should gather momentum from the Arab Spring (that arose from immense suffering of the Egyptian people over the decades) to a Global Spring, by disallowing 'Citizens United' through a constitutional amendment in USA, and Morsi from being co-opted by the 'money-cartel' in the Middle-East.

Nuclear weapons aside, Israel is the only functional, military-drone manufacturing, deploying nation of the Middle-East. It also has at least one prison (the infamous 'Facility 1391') reputed to be of genre 'Guantanamo'.

Israel has no intrinsic right to steal, occupy, harass, coerce, intimidate, injure, kill Palestinians and rebuke UN resolutions; Israel exercises these powers as it benefits from the 'veto' of one nation against the human-rights consensus valued by other nations in the security council. In practice, Israeli actions against Palestinians, diminish Jewish values of equity and justice.

What are other people to do about the plight of the Palestinians?

Through social media, it is within the reach of the people everywhere, to harness consciousness and deny Israel spiritual authority in these assertions, question the culpability of nations that assist Israel, dissuade institutions that have been co-opted by them, and say 'No' to the 'money-cartel'.
The final solution of course is for the people to control the 'issue and management of money', which is a major battle ahead.
Admission of Palestine as an 'Observer State' on 11/29/2012 to the United Nations by the General Assembly by a vote of 138 to 9 with 41 abstentions, is a welcome step.

To take that value forward, a 'sign-on' petition is drafted below:

"We, people of the global community, oppose the 45-year occupation of Palestine by Israel. We ask Israel to withdraw and sign a peace treaty between the two Peoples / States. We thank both Peoples / States."

Here is the link to the 'sign-on':

Our top priority must be to realize non-violently Article 3 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Those of the First World population have realized Article 3 for themselves and reciprocity is a productive, healthy guideline; so, let's (more...)
