American Democracy — The Funeral

The Passionate Attachment
September 8, 2012
Once again the interests of Israel take pride of place in American politics. This time at the Democratic Convention recently held in North Carolina, when the Mayor of Los Angeles decided to take it upon his ears, alone, to judge whether or not the delegates agreed with instating or reinstating a contentious piece of party policy which accepted Jerusalem as being the capital of Israel.
It really doesn’t matter who wins the upcoming Presidential Election. Either way the American people and the rest of the world will lose.

The UN Security Council, which gave birth to Israel in 1948 – never recognized the city of Jerusalem as the country’s capital.
Speaking at the 2010 AIPAC annual conference, Netanyahu had claimed: “The Jewish people were building Jerusalem 3,000 years ago and the Jewish people are building Jerusalem today. Jerusalem is not a settlement. It’s our capital”.
I bet Netanyahu believes that Muslims and Christians are as much of Jerusalem history as is the Zionist crowd.
Israeli professor Shlomo Sand has admitted in his book ‘When and how Jewish people were invented?‘ that modern Jewish people were invented a little more than a century ago. Therefore, Jewish people could not be building Jerusalem 3000 years ago. However, they have been Judeazing Jerusalem city since 1948 when half the Arab Muslim-majority city of Jerusalem (Western) was awarded by the world’s western powers to the European Jews who were not welcomed in the Christian Heartland. The Jews then occupied the Eastern part of Jerusalem with the help of the same western powers in 1967.
