United Nations (UN) & American Reactions to Israel’s Actions
The United Nations is extremely biased against Israel. Take just one example amongst very many.
When Israel scratches the finger of a Palestinian there is massive debate and even many belligerent anti-Israel directives in and from the UN. On the other hand, when the Islamic Sudanese state, as well as the Islamist Jangweed, slaughtered over a million and caused a famine which resulted in massively more deaths (in two decades) than Israel has killed Palestinians in over sixty years, the Sudanese actions were hardly ever discussed. There are 57 Muslim/Islamic states in the UN; including Sudan. The Muslim Sudanese killed and caused the death of over two million black animists and Christians between 1983 and 2005. On the other hand, around 51,000 people have been killed in the Israel-Palestine conflict since 1950 – including Israelis and as well as those killed in the various Intrafada battles between various Muslim groups.
But many people will also be surprised to know that the United States, that “great friend of Zionism and Israel”, has taken more positions against Israel than for it. The most well-known historical example this was the Suez War. During this time President Eisenhower stood completely against Israel . And after that war, the US Government forced Israel to withdraw from the Egyptian territory it had only just conquered.
Aid and Military Supplies to the Arab States and to the Palestinians
Again, in terms of military actions and military supplies, the US imposed an arms embargo on Israel during the 1948 War. It did the same again over the Six Day s War (1967).
The Arab ‘Peace Treaties’ With Israel
Most people in the West know that the many “peace treaties” which have been made between various Arab states, as well as by the Palestinians, and Israel were utterly strategic and cynical in nature. However, that series of cynical and strategic moves from the Arab states also included a financial – not just a political – factor. To put it simply: when Arab states have signed peace treaties with Israel, they have been handsomely paid, by the US, for doing so.
For example, since signing the peace treaty with Israel, in 1979, Egypt has been the second-largest recipient of US foreign aid (it reached $2 billion in 2002). Jordan, always a “friend of the United States”, also received a lot of cash for signing a peace treaty with Israel. (Jordan’s cash-inflow from the US increased by from less than $40 to more than $225 million after the signing.)
The US officially categorised the PA, at this time, as “corrupt” – it was also undemocratic and practised massive violence and torture. Nevertheless, roughly around this time, President Bush did warn the Palestinians that they must change their leadership and embrace reform in order to receive future assistance. This was not American “imposing itself on the Palestinians”. It was simply a case of the Americans saying they’d stop aiding and funding corrupt leaders if they didn’t get their house in order. The US had no obligation to feed and fund an ungrateful nation led by corrupt and violent leaders. That is hardly political imposition. It’s American money. It’s lots of American money. Why should Americans give their money to gangsters and killers?
