BEERSHEBA & BALFOUR 1917: NETANYAHU VISITS AUSTRALIA FOR FIRST TIME, AS POLITICIANS STILL AVOID ONE ELECTION ACROSS ISRAEL/OCCUPIED PALESTINE (24.02.2017)
The UN Security Council always knew that it’s resolutions against Israel would always be meaningless because it alone was entirely responsible for spawning the lawless European military garrison in the Middle East.
... their white exceptionalism in vaucluse that doesn't extend to gaza just looks pathetic...
There could not be any greater sign of the real purpose of the UN Security Council than it’s own creation as a weapons supply line without any corresponding legal system that was mandatory for the five permanent members.
When the UN Security Council showed such contempt for the rule of law and therefore civilian life itself, it was only an invitation for others to follow.
Netanyahu is always warmly welcomed by NATO and Russian politicians who have never cared what civilian populations think.
The Palestinian leader Meshaal doesn’t even care about his own people while he sits supping with Qatar who are great friends with NATO and Russia and their numerous oil deals.
Abbas is no better.
Politicians are just self-serving beasts.
The words living in a parallel universe to the human race spring to mind with the deluded historical revisionism used by the racist apartheid Israel:
While Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may have received a warm welcome in his visit to Australia, more has to be done for the collaboration between the two countries to improve.
Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull went out of his way to make Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu feel welcome during his trip this week.
The pomp and warmth that characterized the reception by the Aussies were extraordinary. In part, this is because Israel and Australia share so much as democracies.
“We have so much in common,” Turnbull said at the start of a press conference in Sydney on Wednesday.
“Shared values, democracy, freedom, the rule of law. Two great democracies – one very small in area, one vast, but each of us big-hearted, generous, committed to freedom.”
In an op-ed for The Australian that appeared on the paper’s front page and was titled “Welcome, Mr Netanyahu: the first Israeli PM to visit Australia,” Turnbull wrote that, though Israel is a nation located in a region “wracked by war,” nevertheless the Jewish state “succeeds as the sole liberal democracy, a world leader in every field of science and technology, its culture of innovation the envy of the world.”
Yet, as noted by Anthony Bergin, senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, more needs to be done to improve cooperation between the two countries.
The time has come for them to take cooperation – particularly in the area of security – beyond public declarations to the level of concrete and regular interaction on a long list of issues.
The two countries lack a high-level military exchange.
Amazingly, Israel does not have a military attaché stationed in Canberra, though there is a Defense Ministry official there. And the Australian military attaché responsible for Israel is based in Ankara, not Israel.
The issue of military cooperation came up in discussions during Netanyahu’s visit. In order to facilitate the process of increased cooperation, Defense Ministry director-general Udi Adam is scheduled to hold talks in Australia in June.
And before Turnbull’s scheduled visit to Israel at the end of October to mark the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Beersheba, a delegation from the Australian Defense Ministry is scheduled to hold talks in Israel.
Both the IDF and the Australian Defense Forces rely heavily on advanced technology. There is plenty of room for cross fertilization. Israel can aid Australia in providing cyber security for its industries and institutions.
Israel’s immense experience with counterterrorism and counterinsurgency tactics, techniques and procedures can be an asset to Australia as well. Meanwhile, Israel, with its strong ethos of self-reliance, can learn from Australia how to work within a military coalition framework.
In the area of “soft” security, Israel also has much to offer, as a country that has fought terrorism for decades while preserving a vibrant democracy and an innovative economy.
Water management is yet another area in which Israel has much to offer Australia, a country that grapples with drought. From dryland farming and drip irrigation to wastewater recycling, Israel is a world leader.
As Netanyahu noted during his visit to Singapore and Australia, Israel is consciously pivoting toward Asia in a concerted effort to improve economic relations with that part of the world.
“Our trade with Australia is $1 billion,” Netanyahu said while in Sydney. “It should be at least double or triple that.
He encouraged business people in both countries to visit. “If I did the schlep, they should do it, too.”
Australia is poised to become one of the world’s largest arms purchasers, with plans to spend $25b. to dramatically upgrade its military due to regional concerns, particularly signs of growing Islamist radicalism in Malaysia and Indonesia.
The 100th anniversary of the Battle of Beersheba provides an ideal opportunity to upgrade relations between Israel and Australia beyond declarations and recognition of mutual goals and values to concrete cooperation.
Australia played a key role in bringing to an end Ottoman rule in what later became the State of Israel. This profound fact should serve as a basis for future relations between the countries.
The only thing the Israeli and Australian governments really have in common is that all Australian governments have always been overtly racist too.
BEERSHEBA & BALFOUR 1917:
... beersheba & balfour... the most incredibly racist double-dealing lies...
Israel has never been serious about any deal with Palestinians who they have always treated appallingly and have no intention of giving any freedom to. Even the two state solution is a lie because Israel demand having control of Palestinian 'security'.
There has never been any real agreement on any kind of equal terms because the Israeli government is inherently a racist colonial occupier.
There's no point in Palestinian people jumping through ever changing unnecessary obstacles Israel sets.
In reality 'Old Europe' doesn't want to change the status quo because global corporations profit from the divide and rule, while there is a ready made European military garrison permanently stationed in the Middle East.
It’s anyone’s guess why Netanyahu skipped off on his first visit to the backwater of Australia, because there’s not really anything much in it for the politicians on either side except for the usual brown-nosing to camera.
The trade deals don’t amount to much especially when compared to the Australian government’s $40 billion vanity project for glorified frogmen from France who will only sit rusting somewhere.
Australia is pretty much a listening post for the CIA and not much else on the world stage, because it is still ruled over by the unelected old clone on the throne in the UK who deposed an elected Prime Minister in the 1970’s.
Australian politicians are always just white supremacist freaks who have never been anything other than a complete embarrassment.
Of course there's no Australian politicians who like peaceniks.
The whole recent performance over a UN Security Council resolution against Israel was just that. A performance for public consumption, where the Australian government stood with Israel in opposing the rule of law.
It was the lawyer Saleem al-Saqqa from Gaza who embarrassed Meshaal and Abbas into joining the International Criminal Court that had politicians the world over jumping up and down in fury with Palestinian people having the temerity to want access to courts of law to try and save their lives.
You couldn't accuse Saleem al-Saqqa of not wanting to save Israeli lives too.
What no politician wants is one election across what is called Israel/Occupied Palestine because that would most probably return an Arab majority in administrative governance.
So the politicians who aren’t really any different from each other keep dancing around in circles wasting civilians time and lives.
The practical way of achieving peace in the Middle East is staring everyone in the face because there are only two phoney ‘sides’ of NATO and Russia dividing and ruling everyone with their weapons supply line.
Most Palestinians in the UK would much prefer to be living in their homeland in peace, than listening to Westminster, Washington and Moscow’s corporate Brexit ‘reset’ of their same old Nazi KKK deceit.
The grinding wars in the Middle East hide that some are living the high life on oil that everyone in the Middle East could be doing.
The Middle East has so much more going for it than even just oil that makes what is really the selfishness of politicians, all the more unconscionable.
