Senate unanimously opposes Palestinian push for statehood (AIPAC wants you to know)

By Philip Weiss on June 30, 2011

Yesterday by a unanimous vote the Senate said that the Palestinians should not seek a state in the United Nations. This as the world moves to recognize just such a move.

The following note was sent out by AIPAC yesterday.

Following up on today’s news about the passage of the Cardin-Collins resolution, I wanted to pass along this statement from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid…Kind regards, Ari [Goldberg, director of media relations]

REID: PASSAGE OF CARDIN-COLLINS RESOLUTION REAFFIRMS U.S. DEDICATION TO ISRAEL

Washington, D.C.– Nevada Senator Harry Reid issued the following statement today following passage of the Cardin-Collins resolution:

“I am pleased that the Senate unanimously passed Senators Cardin and Collins’ resolution, supported by 88 bipartisan cosponsors, which says a negotiated settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict should come through direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. If peace talks are to be fruitful, the Palestinians cannot bring to the negotiating table a terrorist organization that rejects Israel’s right to exist. A fair beginning to good-faith talks also means the Palestinians cannot simply stop by the negotiating table on their way to the United Nations to seek recognition as a state.

“The United States of America will not give money to terrorists bent on the destruction of the State of Israel. America’s willingness to continue our current aid program will depend on the Palestinian government’s insistence that Hamas recognize Israel’s right to exist, that it renounce violence and that it honor the commitments made by prior Palestinian Authority governments.”

  2. What I see is a US Senate that does not recognize the Right of Statehood in Palestine for the Palestinian people!

    And therefore, I see no reason for the US Senate to recognize the need or value of the United States Senate whatsoever!

    In fact, the senate itself should be abolished!

    The US Senate is an awful anachronism that is not only unrepresentative, it is disproportional of population due to being based on state borders and not apportioned as is the US House of Representatives.

    Clearly, the US Senate is an undemocratic institution, as well as a redundancy of having two politicians “representing” the same population.

    Senator Reid is a war criminal by merely by the crime of omission, but commission as well, a fact that is irrefutable made manifestly indelibly clear by recorded votes and video of statements on the senate floor.

    The senate has no integrity or scruples to be found, but treacherously doing the bidding a criminal fascist-imperialist state misbegotten in Palestine, is not statesmanship, it is High Treason.

    If you have researched the USS Liberty attack by Israel in 1967, the assassination of President Kennedy, and/or 9/11; you will know who and what the Zionist are! Israel is the one country the US should blockade, disarm, and scatter to the winds! This time, the US Senate has gone to far, as has Obama, albeit in arrogance and ignorance!

  4. CORRECTED EDITION OF PREVIOUS COMMENT:

    What I see is a US Senate that does not recognize the Right of Statehood in Palestine for the Palestinian people, and I see no reason to recognize the need or value of the United States Senate to exist whatsoever!
    In fact, the US Senate itself should be abolished!

    The US Senate has no integrity or scruples to be found, and this vote is another glaring example of it treacherously doing the bidding of a fascist-imperialist Israel, a misbegotten state in Palestine. That is not statesmanship, it is High Treason!

    This time, the US Senate has gone to far, as has Obama, albeit in arrogance and ignorance as a hand-puppet worked by Zbigkniew Brzezinski, David Rockefeller’s imperial minister and Obama’s demented mentor.
