Apartheid Israel: The “mad dog” biting the hand that feeds it
Infamous Israeli war criminal Moshe Dayan once said, “Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.” Drunk with impunity and unparalleled influence in Washington and Brussels, this mad dog is now biting the hand that feeds it, but wants the feeding to go on.
In response to Biden’s weak criticism of the far-right Israeli government’s unmasked turn to authoritarianism and dumping of the two-state charade, Israeli leaders lashed out at the US, ignoring its role as the indispensable funder, enabler and defender of apartheid Israel.
Netanyahu slammed Biden: “Israel is a sovereign country which makes its decisions by the will of its people and not based on pressures from abroad, including from the best of friends.” But, friend, keep those billions of dollars, weapons, and UN vetoes coming, unconditionally.
Reprimanding Biden, fanatic Israeli “national security” minister Ben-Gvir, convicted of supporting terrorism, said that Israel is “not another star on the American flag,” forgetting that no state in the United States has ever had as much influence in Washington as this non-star.
How many years can Israel’s brutal regime of settler-colonialism against Indigenous Palestinians last without US arming, funding, keeping its European poodles under control and, most importantly, wielding its bludgeon against anyone suggesting accountability?
Time to show the mad dog its place. Let’s intensify pressure on the complicit US administration, apartheid Israel’s partner in crime, to stop its military funding and its ruthless bullying of those who endorse the Palestinian call for targeted, lawful #SanctionsOnApartheid.
