HYPOCRISY OF THE AMERICAN CONSCIENCE

“Democracy and respect for human rights have long been central components of U.S. foreign policy. Supporting democracy not only promotes such fundamental American values as religious freedom and worker rights, but also helps create a more secure, stable, and prosperous global arena in which the United States can advance its national interests.”

 

The Heartfelt Hypocrisy Of The American Conscience

by William Hanna

While many of us may applaud the commendable outpouring of American public outage over President Trump’s racist “shithole” comment, we should not forget that those same Americans have maintained almost seven decades of unconscionable silence over far worse racist comments by Israeli leaders who take pride in statements that characterise and dehumanise Palestinians as never having existed; as having to be killed unless they were resigned to live as slaves; as being beasts walking on two legs; as being like crocodiles who when given more meat, wanted even more; as a people whose physical homes should be obliterated to prevent more snakes being raised in them; and as deserving to be bombed back to the Middle ages. goo.gl/2sgb1Q

Furthermore, those currently outraged Americans have not only remained silent over rampant racism in Apartheid Israel goo.gl/NqWrnU but they have gone a stage further by wholeheartedly supportinggoo.gl/cRo6n5and financing goo.gl/JBBGAN Israel’s ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people: and they have done all this despite the U.S. Department of State’s alleged respect for democracy and human rights.

“Democracy and respect for human rights have long been central components of U.S. foreign policy. Supporting democracy not only promotes such fundamental American values as religious freedom and worker rights, but also helps create a more secure, stable, and prosperous global arena in which the United States can advance its national interests. In addition, democracy is the one national interest that helps to secure all the others. Democratically governed nations are more likely to secure the peace, deter aggression, expand open markets, promote economic development, protect American citizens, combat international terrorism and crime, uphold human and worker rights, avoid humanitarian crises and refugee flows, improve the global environment, and protect human health.”

“The protection of fundamental human rights was a foundation stone in the establishment of the United States over 200 years ago. Since then, a central goal of U.S. foreign policy has been the promotion of respect for human rights, as embodied in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The United States understands that the existence of human rights helps secure the peace, deter aggression, promote the rule of law, combat crime and corruption, strengthen democracies, and prevent humanitarian crises.”

Ultimately, irrespective of how many American lawmakers, TV anchors, and pundits condemn the racist comments of their incumbent and ignorant President, the inescapable fact remains that not only did 62,980,160 Americans vote for him, but also the reality that most Americans are nothing but lamentable cowards and hypocrites when it comes to criticising Israel’s blatant and barbaric disregard for the human rights of the indigenous Palestinians. Thanks to their unconditional support for Israel, the American people have lost their moral compass, abandoned the true principles of democracy, and shattered the American Dream.  goo.gl/2CWSR4)

    Had the ‘refugees’ come from Gaza or Hebron instead of Haiti, you would not have heard a word of condemnation.

    That’s not the worst of it, Mr. Hanna. The worst of it is that the majority of Americans who have no conscience when it comes to Palestinians are self-proclaimed Christians! (Christian Zionists, that is….even those CZs who do call out Israel about treatment of Palestinians are too damned afraid to do what they need to do to really expose the truth: and here is the truth–the folks running Israel–and now with Chabad Lubavitcher Kushner, the folks running the US–want all gentiles dead or enslaved. And, the worst is, as per the Talmud, they want ALL CHRISTIANS DEAD! Under Noahide Law number 2.)
