Weakening Iran & possibly even replacing its government is the most compelling issue for Israel & its powerful US domestic lobby, but the Israeli plan is much broader: to make the US the junior partner providing the money & weapons in an effort to militarily dominate the Middle East… Biden/Blinken administration caves on IDF killing of Shireen Abu Akleh, Syria, etc

Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) calls out the Biden administration’s feeble response to Israel’s killing of a prominent American citizen: he asks the hard questions (why haven’t they been asked before?) that could trigger the withholding of US military aid to Israel.
Yair Lapid’s brazen demand for impunity for the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh is a disturbing reflection of the US-Israeli relationship.
A detailed report on how Israel advocates have worked to oppose a distinguished nominee from becoming Ambassador to Brazil because of comments she had made over two decades ago about the Israel lobby…
Antony Blinken’s exchange with Nooran Abuhamdan at her Georgetown graduation was an insult to the cause of justice – but also a typical response to the Palestinian issue.
H.R. 2748, the Israel Relations Normalization Act of 2021, expands the Abraham Accords, Trump-era weapons and business deals between apartheid Israel and other authoritarian regimes. These deals bribe Arab countries in the region to ignore both Israel’s settler colonialism and constant human rights violations. Last week, the bill passed in both the House and the Senate.
While the U.S. president refuses to condition military aid, Israel has toppled more than twice as many Palestinian structures in the West Bank than it had by this point in Trump’s term.
What Palestinians have been asking for over the last 50 years – international actions to stop an aggressive occupier – were implemented for Ukrainians within seven days. A parallel demand for such actions to benefit Palestinians sounds like a stale joke…
The Palestinians have every right to ask why Western leaders, led by Biden, are imposing crippling sanctions on Moscow and threatening more retaliatory action if it continues with its invasion of Ukraine, but don’t take similar action against Israeli colonialism.
Israel is lying about its soldiers’ actions that night: this wasn’t a fluke – it was Israeli standard operating procedure.
