“Political” Absurdity Knows NO LIMITS: US Blocking Full UN Membership for Palestine – and US Congress Passes Law Depriving Palestine of Freedom of Speech

Palestine applied to become a full-fledged United Nations member. On 18 April 2024, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) voted on the request.

The United States single-handedly vetoed Palestine from full UN membership, thereby blocking the world body’s recognition of a Palestinian State.

The vote in the 15-member Security Council was 12 in favor, the US opposed and two abstentions, the UK and Switzerland.

What is largely called Palestine, has since 2012 a non-member observer status. An application for full membership with voting rights must be approved by the UN Security Council and two-thirds of the General Assembly.

The Palestinian Authority slams the US veto as an “aggression”, calling it “unfair, immoral, and unjustified.” – This benign statement is far from reflecting the truth behind blocking the UN-recognized statehood of Palestine.

The truth is that Washington under the Democrats led by Biden supports the Zionists thrive for exterminating Palestinians and eliminating the State of Palestine.

Simultaneously with the US veto, a bill requesting additional US$ 26 billion weapons and budget support for Israel reached the US House Floor.

The Biden Administration, widely supported by its European puppet leaders, wants more Palestinians killed – especially Gazan inhabitants, or rather prisoners, need to be exterminated, killed by bombs, gunned down, starved to death – and the survivors eventually expulsed – to where?

Probably the Sinai desert, where Egypt already built semi-clandestinely – for sure in agreement with Israel – tent cities to accommodate at least some of the expulsed Palestinians.

Imagine! Who will feed them? Who provides health services and facilities? – Simply, the Zionist intent is to let them slowly and miserably perish.

That is the Zionist extermination plan. In civilized language called “ethnic cleansing”.

The latter, of course, is a crime rather than an absurdity.

Here is absurdity driven to extreme. On Wednesday, 17 April, the US House of Representatives passed a Resolution, condemning the chanting of the phrase “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

Genocidal Congress representatives, either Zionists, or American Congress People coerced by Zionists, are such maniacs that they will not allow the Gaza-imprisoned Palestinians chanting their wish for freedom of their land “From the Jordan River to the Med-Sea, We, Palestine, shall be free”.

If nothing else, the Resolution is a breach on Freedom of Speech, as per the US Constitution’s First Amendment:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

The Resolution passed Wednesday is a blatant attempt to abridge the freedom of speech.
It is reminiscent of book burning in the not-too-distant past. Yes, humanity is progressing – fast – but backwards. In more ways than one.

The supporters of the Resolution claim that the chant is “antisemitic”, even though the word Jew never appears in it. It only claims or wishes freedom for Palestine.

Whoever the Congress person was introducing this abhorrently idiotic and contradictory bill – no names shall be named – his or her brain-power was sadly reduced to the size of a chick-bean. Maybe through the multiple-boostered vaxxes?

Looking back at almost forgotten history, on 13 December, 1993, then U.S. Secretary of State Warren Christopher, signed the Oslo Peace Accords. These accords, which have the force of U.S. Law, specified that Israel would withdraw from Gaza and the Palestinian West Bank by 1997 and turn their governance over to the Palestine Authority, that is, the State of Palestine.

Remember the famous 1993 picture of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Chairman Yasser Arafat shaking hands on the White House lawn, both embraced by Bill Clinton.

The Oslo Agreements proposed a two-state solution. Had they been implemented then; Palestine would indeed be free from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

However, Netanyahu, leader of the far-right Likud party, never had any intentions to implement the Oslo Accords. He then, as today, played his dirty games of deception, of lying to the public, by letting the Accords being negotiated and signed.

An independent Palestine would have meant that Palestine would sovereignly own the natural resources on or under her soil, especially water resources. Of the combined Palestine Israel territory, pre-1967 borders, some 80% of all water resources belong to Palestine.

This was not acceptable to Israel. Today, Israel is almost in full control of all the water, often building Jewish settlements on or by Palestinian groundwater- and surface water springs.

Here is a testimony, how Netanyahu boasts about manipulating America and derailing the Oslo Peace Process. See this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TG0vdzrmt4 .

The Oslo Agreements were signed by one of Netanyahu’s predecessors, Yitzhak Rabin and PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat, witnessed and approved by then US President Bill Clinton.

It is not only absurd but an outright criminal act to pass a Zionist-pushed bill in the US Congress that forbids a chant of freedom, which has a full legal basis, the signed Oslo Agreements.

As it looks now, Zionist-Israel does not need a US Law, that prohibits the interpretation “From the (Jordan) River to the Sea, Palestine shall be Free”. Zionist-Israel does whatever she wants, irrespective of signed documents and international laws. They are overtaken by the “rules-based order”.

The would-be sovereign State of Palestine was never allowed the freedom Israel and the PLO signed for in 1993.

The tyrant of then, who is the tyrant of today, Netanyahu, has blocked that freedom for Palestine, with the western world support – largely coerced – by the all-powerful international Zionist lobby.

Netanyahu and his cohorts are doing whatever they can with their indiscriminate slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank to wipe out Palestine. However, the way it looks today, with worldwide support for Israel ever-more waning – about 90% of worldwide populations are backing Palestine – Israel may wipe herself off the map.

This concept is echoed ever more around the world. That might indeed be the best outcome – political suicide for a Zionist Israel.

Negotiations could then start for a non-Zionist Israel, an Israel for honest Jews; along and side-by-side with a sovereign Palestine. Equal rights and equal sovereignty shall reign.

Winning a war is insignificant. Everywhere in the world. Wars and conflicts divide. Not only the warriors, but also the public at large, as publicity drives them to take sides.

What counts is not winning, but PEACE.
