More revelations emerge of Trump and Netanyau's hand all over the removal of the Aparheid report

Guterres defends himself

France 24wrote wrote:Asked whether Guterres caved in to pressure from the US President Donald Trump’s administration, UN spokesperson Dujarric said: "This is not about pressure. This is about the secretary-general having the authority to manage the organisation in a way that is done effectively and can deliver on its goals."
Yet, according to FRANCE 24 sources, Guterres had known about the report for months. It was circulated to member states on the 15th of December 2016.
Khalaf’s term at ESCWA was due to end in two weeks, but Guterres had reportedly asked her to work for the UN for at least another year in another role. She refused.
Guterres under pressure

Guterres has been in office for just under 100 days and has come under fire for appearing weak in his response to pressure from the Trump administration to curb any criticism of Israel.
In mid-February, Guterres’ efforts to appoint former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to a top UN job were roundly thwarted.
According to FRANCE 24 sources, Antonio Guterres believed that the US had been consulted and had given him the green light on Fayyad's appointment to lead the UN mission in Libya. But the US then blocked the move just minutes before Fayyad was confirmed in his new role.
As the US threatens to cut its financial contribution to the UN, the new US ambassador, Nikki Haley, has been very vocal in her criticism of what she calls the UN’s “anti-Israel bias” and its inefficiency.
On Thursday, Haley released a statement saying that “in many areas, the UN spends more money than it should.”
The US currently contributes about $10 billion per year to the UN but the Trump administration could cut as much as 50 percent of its funding for UN programmes.
Political blessing in disguise or damaging?

Guterres was recently in the Middle East trying to build bridges with Arab leaders, but it is clear that he is negotiating in troubled waters when it comes to dealing with the new US administration.
Richard Gowan, a UN expert at the European Council on Foreign Relations told FRANCE 24 that in some ways this mini-crisis has been a political blessing in disguise for Guterres.
“He desperately needed a way to reassure the US that he is not anti-Israel. His irritation over the "apartheid" report, and Khalaf's resignation, have unexpectedly allowed him to boost his credibility with Washington.”

He had known about the report months ago and so did the other member states.

What a bhunch of chancers.

And cowards!

I have heard stupid little hasbara trolls bleating that Zionism just means a home for Jews. Well actually, not it doesn't, because they have that already.

The common denominator among all Zionists is the claim to Eretz Israel as the national homeland of the Jews and as the legitimate focus for Jewish national self-determination

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zionism


That is what the Irgun and Begin fought and killed for:




And Eretz Israel?

Future Israel

Next Year in Jerusalem

Why do we, the Jews celebrating Pesach (Passover) in Jerusalem, still say: "Next year in Jerusalem!" Aren't we already here?
The rebuilt Jerusalem we pray for is not this modern city, and the redeemed Eretz Israel is not the political state of the Jews we see today. As the influence of the Torah extends, so will the boundaries of Eretz Israel expand accordingly.

Futuristic Map Based on the Torah

"To your descendants I have given this land, from the Egyptian River as far as the great river, the Euphrates."
Bereshit (Genesis) 15:18

Future Israel - Eretz Israel - the ultimate goal of Zionism.

Israel celebrates Irgun hotel bombers

Despite objections from the British ambassador they went ahead and put a plaque on the wall to celebrate the event in which many British subjects were blown up.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/1524552/Israel-celebrates-Irgun-hotel-bombers.html

Tzipi Livni, Israel's foreign minister, has found herself deeply embroiled in the debate - her father, Eitan, was Irgun's chief operations officer.

Simon Macdonald, the British ambassador to Israel, and consul general John Jenkins, wrote to the mayor of Jerusalem protesting at the plaque. "We don't think it's right for an act of terrorism to be commemorated," their letter read.

What makes me the crossest is when British hasbara trolls peddle the Zionist lies like little sheep and expect other people to swallow it. The resultant screams of 'antisemitism' dishonour the wonderful work that many Israeli's do battling the extreme right wing government they have and the terrorists in the Settler party

Epitaph for an Army of Peacekeepers: The British Army in Palestine, 1945-1948

Synopsis

The author enlisted in the Royal Artillery as a Regular in May 1946 when he was just under 18 and after training, was posted to 2 Field Regt RA in Palestine (soon afterwards re-numbered 41 Field Regt) where he arrived in March 1947. From then until he left Palestine with his Regiment when the United Nations Mandate to Britain to govern the country expired, he was exposed almost daily to the violence and verbal abuse which were experienced by all members of the British forces there, many of whom had taken part in the liberation of Jews held in **** concentration camps in 1945 and were now themselves being called "British **** bastards", an exhibition of gross ingratitude which was hard to take. Since his retirement from civilian employment, the author has spent many years in studying the role of the British forces and their terrorist opponents in Palestine, and has now written this book both as a memorial to all British servicemen who now lie in the military cemeteries of Ramleh and Khayat Beach, (a full list of whom appears in its pages) and a reminder, (if any were needed) that the terrorist leaders of yesterday more often than not become the honoured politicians of today.
