The Joint War Criminality of Obama and Netanhayu’s Israel in exterminating the Palestinian People is a Crime Against Humanity
By Jose Mario De Vega
I refer to “Obama is a ‘war criminal’ for supporting Israel’s treatment of Palestinians – Cornel West”, RT Question More, August 06 with regard to the public speech delivered by a world-renowned dissident professor.
I overwhelmingly concur with controversial professor and political activist Cornel West when he publicly declared President Barack Obama a “war criminal”! I am also in complete agreement with his argument that this is base on the indisputable fact that it was precisely Obama’s “support of Israel and his drone policy make him complicit in the deaths of innocent people.”
According to the said report:
“The controversial activist made the comments at a pro-Palestinian rally in Washington, DC on Saturday, according to Talking Points Memo. West began his speech by pointing to the deteriorating situation in Gaza, where more than 1,800 Palestinians and more than 60 Israelis have been killed, criticizing Israel’s offensive in the region in front of a “Free Palestine” banner.”
Here’s a portion of Dr. West’s speech:
“There’s an intimate connection between mendacity and criminality, between lies and crimes against humanity…
“And what I want to say to my Black brother in the White House: Barack Obama is a war criminal – not because he’s Black, or half-African and white – but because his drones have killed 233 innocent children, and because he facilitates the killing of innocent Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, and it would be true anywhere else.”
I applaud the courage and the guts of the said professor in saying openly to the public what the general public and the world as a whole needs to hear, no matter how sad and brutal the truth is: and that is the undeniable fact that Barrack Obama is nothing but a war criminal like his predecessor, the utterly stupid Dubya!
Nonetheless, Professor West is absolutely correct in saying Obama is a war criminal not because of the color of his skin or by virtue of his cultural heritage and his ethnicity but precisely because he is allowing the utilization of deadly force and sophisticated killing machines and lethal technology in confederation and connivance with the Israelis in facilitating the systemic and mass killing and mass murder of the Palestinian people!
In a word: Obama is also guilty of genocide which is a crime against humanity in his support and defense of the Zionist Israeli fake state!
Incontestably, Professor West is also correct in saying that “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in the same category as his American counterpart”, because it is beyond dispute “that anyone who “chooses occupation and annihilation is a war criminal.””
Professor West categorically stated that:
“Benjamin Netanyahu is a war criminal — not because he’s Jewish, but because he has chosen to promote occupation and annihilation…”
“This is a human affair.”
I completely concur with Dr. West in his pronouncement with regard to the mass murderer Netanyahu that this freak is a war criminal, not because he is Jewish, but because he “has chosen to promote occupation and annihilation”.
In a word, Netanyahu is a war criminal, because of his acting worst than the Nazi and that he and his military are guilty of genocide, which are crimes against humanity.
The radical and prominent activist noted that the said rally’s main objective is to highlight the plight of the Palestinian people because their “humanity is rendered invisible in the corporate media.”
That is because the American media is controlled by the Zionist! Sad but true! Consider the argument of the stupid media in the US: If one will criticize the Israeli, they will immediately tag the said person of anti-semitism! That is not only an idiotic charge but a complete bullshit crap!
Do those bastards knew that the Palestinians and so as the Jews both came from the Semitic people?
According to Wikipedia:
“A Semite is a member of any of various ancient and modern Semitic-speaking peoples originating in the Near East, including; Akkadians (Assyrians/Syriacs and Babylonians), Ammonites, Amorites, Arameans, Chaldeans, Canaanites (including Hebrews/Israelites/Jews and Phoenicians/Carthaginians), Eblaites, Dilmunites, Edomites, Ethiopian Semites, Hyksos, Arabs, Nabateans, Maltese, Mandaeans, Mhallami, Moabites, Shebans and Ugarites.”
So, when those bloody bastard idiots talked about anti-semitism, what the fuck are they referring to?
Dr. West has shown his objectivity and further stressed that:
“I would be here if there were a Palestinian occupation of Jewish brothers and sisters, because it’s wrong, it’s unjust and we stand not with the level of skin pigmentation or ethnic identity; this is ethical, this is spiritual with political consequences…”
Hence, under the prevailing circumstances being face by Gaza “resistance under occupation” is justified!
This is not the first time that Dr. West has called Obama a war criminal. As the report clearly illustrated:
“Notably, West has called Obama a war criminal before. In May 2013, he told the Guardian that although he supported Obama during his initial bid for the presidency, he became disillusioned after seeing the policies put in place both domestically and overseas.”
Same with the professor, I am also one of those millions of people around the globe who threw our support for Obama, yet after three years in office, I am also one of those who were disillusioned by his false promises and fake persona.
Instead of ending the so-called war on terror, he did not only continue the same, but worst further amplified it and made it more large scale and global. Though, he did not use ground troops, he maximize their technological warfare by using advanced planes and much sophisticated drones that killed a lot of civilians from Iraq to Pakistan to Yemen, and now to Palestine. Not included in the list is their covert war on Syria.
Same with his predecessor, Obama also did not give a damn to the Palestinian cause. In 2011, during his Address before the United Nations, he even hinted that he will veto the right of the Palestinian for an independent state.
While on the local front, he is powerless to control the corporations, the banks, the big business and all their cohorts to the prejudice of the American public, especially those who live at the edge of society.
Obama instead of realizing the American Dream has turn into the worst American Nightmare! Sad but true! The only difference between him and Dudya is that the latter is white while he is black, but on the level of political character and ideological persuasion — both are the same! Shame!!!
For in truth and in fact, Obama is nothing more than the protector of Wall Street and the genocidal illegitimate ‘state’ of Israel!
As Dr. West clearly pointed out:
“He’s just too tied to Wall Street… And at this point he is a war criminal. You can’t meet every Tuesday with a killer list and continually have drones drop bombs. You can do that once or twice and say: ‘I shouldn’t have done that, I’ve got to stop.’ But when you do it month in, month out, year in, year out – that’s a pattern of behavior.”
“I think there is a chance of a snowball in hell that he will ever be tried, but I think he should be tried and I said the same about George Bush. These are war crimes. We suffer in this age from an indifference toward criminality and a callousness to catastrophe when it comes to poor and working people.”
LET GAZA LIVE!
