Obama Spurns Palestinian Rights
by Stephen Lendman
Obama one-sidedly supports Israel.
He frankly doesn't give a damn. He spent three days in Israel. He showed one-sided support. He gave Palestinians short shrift. He spent token time in Ramallah.
He told Israelis "so long as there is a United States of America, Ah-tem lo lah-vahd (You are not alone)." He left no doubt what he means.
Washington and Israel have unbreakable ties. They're longstanding. Obama's visit affirmed them.
He ignored Palestinian suffering. Occupation harshness wasn't mentioned. Nor was Israel's most extremist government in history. It reflects fascism writ large. Obama supports its worst crimes.
Settlements aren't the issue, he suggested. They've expanded exponentially on his watch.
