Once again, Israel has decided to thumb its nose, not only at its allies but at human decency.
What is wrong with these people? Where did their arrogance come from? How did they become so indifferent to basic morality? At the beginning of the year they bombarded their own concentration camp, Gaza, and ignored wordwide opprobrium. Now, they have announced their intention to continue with their policy of settlement. For settlement, read “theft”.
The Israeli government wil not stop until all Palestinian people have been dispossessed, and they seem entirely oblivious to the appalling irony of that stance. They seem to have forgotten their own history.
Here’s the ridiculous thing: most of these settlements are illegal (ref) under Israeli law, so what is any reasonable person to conclude? Could it be that Israeli law is entirely ignored by the Israeli government? Could it be that Israel is just as corrupt as the rest of us in spite of their loud claims to the high moral ground?
