100 US Senators Want Israeli High Crimes Suppressed

By Stephen Lendman | April 28, 2017

In an April 27 letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, all US senators demanded the world body ignore Israeli high crimes, calling truth-telling “anti-Semiti(c).”

“Too often, the UN is exploited as a vehicle for targeting Israel,” they said.

Fact: Much more needs to be done to hold Israel accountable for high crimes of war and against humanity – for decades of ruthlessly persecuting Palestinians, for committing slow-motion genocide, for attacking its neighbors.

The letter quoted neocon US UN envoy Nikki Haley, saying “(i)t is the UN’s anti-Israel bias that is long overdue for change” – an outrageous perversion of truth.

The senators praised the world body “for disavowing” the important Richard Falk/Virginia Tilley report, calling Israel a racist apartheid regime – “beyond a reasonable doubt.”

The entire US Senate urged the UN “to improve (its) treatment of Israel…” It demands no world body support for the vital global BDS initiative – or any other actions hostile to Israeli interests.

It wants information about its human rights abuses suppressed. It demands support for US interests. It calls truth-telling anti-Israeli “bias.”

All 100 US senators disgracefully signed the letter. Washington and Israel partner in each other’s high crimes – a ruthless axis of evil threatening humanity.

Last week, Haley accused the world body of holding “Israel-bashing sessions.” Ignoring US wars in multiple theaters, she lied claiming “Iran is using Hezbollah to advance its regional aspirations.”

“They are working together to expand extremist ideologies in the Middle East. That is a threat that should be dominating our discussion at the Security Council.”

Iran threatens no one. Neither does Hezbollah. Haley turned truth on its head. So did Tillerson days earlier, irresponsibly accusing Tehran of “alarming ongoing provocations” to destabilize regional countries.

Iranian UN envoy Gholamali Khoshroo debunked his remarks, calling them “misleading propaganda…”

Last week Washington asked which Middle East countries benefit from regional chaos, “and what are the connections between terrorist groups and these states?”

Israel, of course, benefits most. So does America by its belligerent presence in a part of the world not its own – waging endless wars of aggression, supporting terrorist groups it created, wanting pro-Western puppet rule replacing all sovereign independent governments.

  1. The Military Industrial Complex, laughingly calling itself “The World’s Policeman”, is in fact, “The World’s Bikie Gang”, and only the American people can pull it into line, like they did to end the Vietnam War(Known as “The American War”) by the Vietnamese.

  2. The letter is signed by only two senators, Rubio and Coons. Is there some other document affirming the signatures of the entire senate?

    • The letter runs, if my count is correct, to 11 pages…Rand Paul’s is the final-page last signature.

  3. 100 Zionist puppet parasite sell outs – Israel is above the law – The last thing the US wants, is an independent investigation into Mossad’s involvement in 9/11 and Chertoff’s cover up of the operation

    • I think the American people would love to see an independent investigation of 9/11, but such is the power of the Zionist lobby in Congress, media, Military Industrial Complex and the legal system, ‘THEY’ will NEVER allow it. The USA is subverted and controlled, from within.

  4. The unanimity epitomizes the sweaty-palmed, knee-knocking, genuflecting cowardice of ZioOccupied WashDC aided and abetted by the embedded Ziomedia, the financial apparatus, the Ziothink tanks et al. Stephen Lendman is a breath of fresh air in the fetid swamp. All the while, the Palestinians suffer unspeakably….
