The American Task Force on Palestine (ATFP), the Washington public relations firm for the Israeli-sponsored, Western-funded, and American-supervised Palestinian Authority (PA) in occupied Ramallah, “strongly criticized” plans by the Zionist entity to expand, illegal, Jewish-only colonies in occupied “East Jerusalem”, and elsewhere in the occupied West Bank.
The plans were announced by anti-Arab racist Benjamin Netanyahu, the current head of the Israeli regime. Netanyahu is the son of a Polish Zionist father who was the secretary of the Russian Zionist, Vladimir Yevgenyevich Zhabotinsky (later known as Ze’ev Jabotinsky), a terrorist and founder of Revisionist Zionism. Netanyahu’s brother served as a member of an Israeli Death Squad specializing in extrajudicial assassinations which was dispatched by the then head of Israel, the Ukrainian Golda Mabovitch (better known as Golda Meir), to murder Palestinian intellectuals, activists and resistance leaders in the 1970’s. He participated in the attack that killed Kamal Adwan, Kamal Nasser, and Mouhamed Yousif Al-Najjar.
Ziad Asali is urging the Obama Administration “to act firmly to prevent these plans from proceeding”, and help “preserve the integrity of the two-state solution.” The empty-black-tie-tuxedo is now busy explaining America’s national interest to US officials and the Foreign Policy establishment, and why it’s in their national interest to listen to him. Hussein Ibish, the Washington concierge to PA officials, will likely respond by doubling his efforts to reach out to The Israel Project, AIPAC, and other racist Zionist organizations in order to “continue exploring any potential area for cooperation towards peace.” He has not ruled out another dinner with the Israeli ambassador.
This latest expansion of the illegal, Jewish-only colonies in occupied Palestine, and the ATFP’s immediate and thunderous response has not prevented Asali, Ibish, and that other guy at the ATFP from returning to celebrating Hillary Clinton’s speech at the ATFP’s annual gala last month. They seem to have especially enjoyed the part when Hillary assured them the administration “will not turn our backs” on the Palestinians. Even James Zogby, another elegant Arab and well-seasoned gala organizer, joined in celebrating that phrase and called it a “major breakthrough.”
Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders have contacted their supporters in the US and expressed their concern that growing Arab-American political empowerment in Washington and America could have grave consequences for Israel and the Zionist enterprise in the future. They are deeply troubled by the undue influence Ibish and Asali are exercising on American Foreign Policy makers, and Zogby’s success in rallying American public opinion behind the Palestinian cause. They are especially worried that a rising “Arab Lobby” in Washington is on the verge of supplanting the Pro-Israel forces, and stated this must not be allowed to happen.
