The West Turns a Blind Eye as Israel’s Apartheid and Other Illegalities Develop Further
TRANSCEND MEMBERS, 6 Jul 2020
1 Jul 2020 – Another tragic turning point for the – falling – West as civilization. Its moral irresponsibility is expressed by its roaring silence on this crystal clear and gross violation of international law and evil done to the Palestinian people for decades.
It can be seen as a particularly nasty, nationalist form of a victim psychology à la Sigmund Freud’s Wiederholunszwang and Alice Miller’s repetition compulsion – you project onto others today what was done to you earlier.
Add to that exceptionalism (like the US), state formation through ethnic cleansing (like the US), a belief in being a Chosen People (like the US), being an extremely militarist, over-armed and nuclear power (like the US) and seeing enemies everywhere without the thought that your own behaviour may create some of them – leading to constant fear/paranoia – and you have most of a recipe for self-destruction (like the US).
Two leading countries, with the largest Jewish population – 84% of all Jews – on their way down and placing themselves outside civilised community.
How good it would be for the world and for themselves if many more Jewish people – loud and clear – spearheaded a moral revolution against the mechanisms underlying these two states.
Today – Annexation Day – CNN, BBC, the Danish Broadcasting, the Swedish Television, The Christian Science Monitor, The New York Times, The Guardian, The Times, Russia Today . . . all choose to either not mention the Annexation at all or place it very far down on their frontpage.
