UN resolutions critical of Israel blocked

Syria Palestine role of US Israel United Nations

1) On November 15, 2010, U.S. President Barack Obama praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for urging his cabinet to accept a U.S. proposal to extend a freeze on West Bank settlement building for 90 days. Under the plan, Washington would block UN resolutions critical of Israel, and supply Israel with fighter jets worth $3 billion. The US government also promised Israel that after the 90-day moratorium, they would not seek an extension, and settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (all of which is illegal under international law) could continue unabated.

2) In February 2011, more than 100 nations voted for a U.N. resolution that would have condemned illegal Israeli settlements and halted any new construction. The United States vetoed it.

3) On February 19, 2011, Israel said it was deeply grateful to the United States after it vetoed a United Nations resolution put forward by the Palestinian leadership condemning Israeli settlement activity.

4) On  Oct 27, 2011, Israeli jetfighters engaged in aerial bombing of the Palestinian city of Khan Yunes in the Gaza Strip.

Germany – “FATHERLAND’

Israel Germany Soloman Third Reich
The Großdeutsches Reich (originally Deutches Reich but most commonly called the Third Reich or Nazi Germany) comprised, at its maximun extent, the current countries of Germany, Crimea, Denmark, Galicia, Luxembourg, Moldavia, Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, Ukraine, as well as parts of Norway and northern Belgium.

The invasion of Poland, a so-called ‘defensive’ action, caused the Second Great War. In the first years of the War, the Reich invaded and annexed Denmark, southern Norway, and the Netherlands. The Reich also invaded Belgium and France, divided Belgium annexing the northern part and annexed Luxembourg. In 1942, the Reich attacked the Soviet Union, completing the invasion of Poland, and invading and annexing Ukraine and parts of Romania (divided between the Reich, Hungary and Bulgaria). Finally, in 1944, when controlling a rebellion against the friendly government in Yugoslavia, the Third Reich invaded Yugoslavia and annexed Slovenia.

Boycott Israel: Israel excluded from Italy military exercises

Boycott Israel Italy

The Israeli air force has been removed from the list of armed forces now taking part in multinational military training exercises on the Italian island of Sardinia following a campaign by anti-war activists.

During Israel’s deadly 51-day bombing campaign on Gaza in July and August, anti-militarization and Palestine solidarity groups mobilized against the military drills in general, and Israel’s participation in particular.

Palestinians in Gaza, standing in the rubble of destroyed homes, posted photographs appealing directly to Italy not to “train the pilots who bombs us.”

The prospect of Israeli F-16s using the island to train for bombing missions, combined with the ill-timed delivery to Israel of two Italian trainer jets just after the attacks on Gaza began, created public outrage in Italy, with multiple calls for an embargo on weapons cooperation with Israel.

On 31 July, the Italian defense ministry published a note in an attempt to calm the waters. Without mentioning Israel, the ministry note stated that the planning stages for the drills had not yet been completed and only upon completion would the participating countries be confirmed.

The drills started last month and are scheduled to run until December.

As speculation on the possible exclusion of Israel continued, so did the mobilizations. A demonstration on 13 September at the Capo Frasca firing range, where Israel was to train, saw large-scale participation.

More than 350 people broke into the military area in an act of civil disobedience.

Contradiction

On 25 September, Gioacchino Alfano, Italy’s deputy defense minister, responded to a parliamentary question by claiming that military drills with the Israeli air force were never in the plans and therefore could not have been suspended.

That statement contradicted a March 2014 document from the Capo Frasca firing range, which clearly indicated that Israel was to take part in drills during the second half of 2014.

Furthermore, Israel has participated in similar drills undertaken in Sardinia in recent years, as photographs posted by the Israeli military prove.
