Israel has officially become an ‘apartheid’!

The U.S. that led the establishment of the United Nations is today playing a destructive role that ensnares the UN and renders it idle. As for the U.S.'s Middle East policies, they are more pro-Israel than ever. In the UN, the crimes committed by Israel are being covered by the U.S. The U.S.'s UN Ambassador Nikki Haley is working even harder for Israel than the ambassador to Israel. As for the National Security Council, it has been submitted to hawks like John Bolton, who see themselves as a hammer and everything around them as nails. These hawks have the mentality of, "We are the world's largest military forces. There is no need to waste time with negotiations, diplomacy and dialogue."

In a video shown on a state channel in Israel recently, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who addressed the members of his party, says that they convinced U.S. President Donald Trump to withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal. However, Netanyahu does not speak of how he convinced Trump. As for Trump's most generous political donors, they represent the most extreme end of the Israel lobby. Sheldon Adelson, who is known as the "King of Casinos," is only one of these donors. Adelson, who pressed Trump to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, had also said that he can also provide the necessary financing to build the embassy building. The U.S. Department of State under Rex Tillerson was not in a hurry for the move. The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), which is financed by Adelson, carried out an effective campaign for Tillerson's dismissal. Tillerson was dismissed on May 14, while the opening ceremony of the Jerusalem embassy also took place on May 14.

The names that Trump authorized to ensure a final peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians are both of Jewish origin and supporters of the settlement policies in the West Bank. Following Tillerson's leave, the phrase, "occupied lands," used in the U.S. Department of State's annual Human Rights Reports in reference to the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza, were also removed. The latest move of Israel, which has been spoiled rotten by the U.S. with a constant back rub, was the passing of the Jewish Nation-State Law. This move removed Arabic from being an official language. The Israeli government is now going to be a lot more audacious in its settlement policies. As for Trump's so-called great peace plan, for which he is yet to give the outline, can be considered garbage. Israel, which has no intention for peace, is deceiving everybody. All Israel wants is for Palestinians to forever disappear.

In 1947, the UN had clearly stated that Arabs who remained within the Israeli border would have citizenship rights. This was the fundamental condition for Israel joining the UN. It was emphasized in Israel's independency memorandum that the UN's requirements would be respected, all citizens would have equal social and political rights without discrimination against faith, race or gender, and that freedom of conscience, faith, education and culture would be fully guaranteed. What will the UN do against the disregard of this fundamental condition? With this law, Arabs, who make up 20 percent of the population, will be treated like second-class citizens. This is what was actually happening in practice anyway.

Once upon a time the South African regime was built upon the race discrimination called "apartheid." The white racist regime was collapsed in the early 1990s and now it has been replaced by Israel. In 1960, the UN had declared "apartheid" a crime against humanity and condemned it. Yet, the closest friend of the racist regime that faced international sanctions and civil boycotts was Israel. In 1975, the UN General Assembly had accepted a decision that Zionism is "racism and racial discrimination." This decision was annulled in 1991. What a coincidence, Trump's National Security Adviser John Bolton played the lead role in the decision. On his visit to the White House to meet with John Bolton, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman gifted him an old caricature depicting his role in the annulment decision. Can a just peace possibly emerge for Palestinians from policies run by such men?
