Obama in Jerusalem
by Stephen Lendman
Obama's speech belies his agenda.
Rhetoric doesn't reflect policy. What matters most is what Obama means, not what he says. His agenda affirms one-sided Israeli support. He spurns Palestinian rights. He's done so throughout his tenure.
He's not about to change now. Palestinians have no friends in Washington. For sure they have none in high places.
Obama's their enemy. His words ring hollow. How can a warrior president be taken seriously?
He's waging multiple wars. He's ravaging humanity. He spurns rule of law principles. He prioritizes world dominance. He's beholden to monied interests. They own him. Palestinian suffering's increased on his watch. He's done nothing to alleviate it.
On March 21, he spoke in Jerusalem's Convention Center. He chose the wrong place to go. Israel claims the city as its exclusive capital. Palestinians want it for their own.
