The world condemns Israel

Netanyahu vows action against PA over ICC bid - Cartoon [Cartoon Latuff/MiddleEastMonitor]

My opinion of the terrorist Benjamin Netanyahu is well known and I have expressed it several times in my articles. Today I will refer back to the UN and six resolutions against Israel that were supported by the international organisation’s member states.

The most important resolution is related to Jerusalem and it rejects Israel’s sovereignty over the Holy City by 148 votes to 11, with 14 abstentions.

There was another resolution on the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. It was supported by 156 countries and opposed by eight with 12 abstentions. The resolution speaks of the Haram Al-Sharif and does not refer to the Temple Mount, as Israel calls it.

Israel dug under the Haram Al-Sharif and found neither a first, second or third temple. All of these are myths that are baseless in history and geography.

There was also a resolution calling on Israel to withdraw from the Golan Heights, which was backed by 99 countries with ten countries against and 66 abstentions.

The United States, Canada and Australia opposed these six resolutions, which are a part of about 20 resolutions against Israel adopted by the United Nations each year.

An Israeli UN representative attacked support for the resolutions against Israel and talked about the relationship of the Jews and Christians to the alleged Temple Mount. There is absolutely nothing related to the Jews in the Haram Al-Sharif, but the Christian presence is known and there is cooperation between the Christian churches in Jerusalem and the House of Fatwas against Israel’s lies.

The European Union voted in favour of the two main resolutions on Jerusalem but requested a change of wording regarding the holy sites.

I reiterate, perhaps for the thousandth time, that Christian and Islamic connections were written about within less than ten years of the miracles of Jesus Christ and the revelation that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), while the apparent Jewish links were written a thousand years later.

The six resolutions endorsed by the United Nations refer to uncontested Palestinian rights. This year, the UN hosted Marc Lamont Hill, a CNN commentator, and he said that the resistance is a right exercised by the Palestinians and supported the BDS movement against Israel. He was fired last week due to his political positions.

I say that Israel and its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu neo-Nazis, and perhaps it is the only remaining neo-Nazi state in the world.

The Israeli police recommended Netanyahu be tried on charges of accepting bribes, fraud and breach of trust and the police accused him of supporting a telecommunications group in exchange for supporting the terrorist government against the Palestinians in their country.

This case and two others against Netanyahu await Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit’s decision to go to court. If the cases reach the courts, this will be the first time a serving Israeli prime minister has been tried.

I believe bribery is a simple charge in exchange for killing Palestinians including hundreds of children. If there is justice in the world, the terrorist prime minister would be tried before the ICC in The Hague, as he deserves. Every time Netanyahu denies he committed the crimes, he further proves that the charges against him are true.
