Pathetic Israel Playing The Victim

Sickening to see Israel running around acting like the victim after the passing of the UN resolution demanding an end to the building of settlements on occupied Palestinian territory. 
After the pathetic and predictable squealing that the vote was due to the rampant antisemitism that infects the United Nations, Israel has called back its ambassadors in New Zealand and Senegal and summoned ambassadors from all of the countries that voted for the resolution.
It has also cancelled aid programmes in Angola and Senegal and all planned vists with Theresa May which seemed to confuse the UK Government who said the PM was unaware of any meetings planned with him.
Mr Netanyahu also took aim at Barack Obama and said the US administration had: 'not only failed to protect Israel against this gang-up at the UN, it colluded with it behind the scenes'.
All very dramatic but no amount of this drivel covers up the fact that Israel is the one very much in the wrong and it is about time the UN caught up with it as it has been literally getting away with murder in Palestine for the past 60 years.
In the investigation of the last Gaza incursion, the United Nations found the Israeli Defence Force guilty of using Palestinian children as human shields, deliberate bombing of civilian houses and UN buildings and targeting innocent civilians in the war which was 'a deliberately disproportionate attack designed to punish, humiliate and terrorise a civilian population'.
It is Israel who throw the spanners into the works whenever the chance of peace talks is raised so it can continue with the status quo while it mops up Palestinian land.
Israel is the occupier, illegally seizing and building settlements on Palestinian land, defying UN resolutions, killing innocent Palestinians, holding over 9000 Palestinians in its prisons, destroys farms, bulldozes homes and businesses and builds a monstrous wall deemed illegal by the international court of justice and turns Gaza into an outdoor prison.
Israel is becoming more and more isolated Internationally and the latest attempt to try and shield itself from condemnation and presented itself as the wronged party would be laughable if it was not actively carrying out a genocide against its smaller neighbour, a genocide that America has been funding and until last week gave approval to.
Israel needs to be bought to heel and hopefully this will be the start of the process and the real victim, the people of Palestine, will finally get justice.
