Obama's Hypocrisy Warning Syria Not To Use Chemical Weapons While defending Israel For Using Chemical Weapons IE Napalm and Depleted Uranium and Cluster Bombs On The Citizens of Gaza

Last night, Jon Stewart played a little game of “Make Fox News Mad Libs” to try to predict Fox News’ outrage over the so-called “War on Christmas.” Because, Jon said, despite what Fox News may say, “the rest of us can’t swing a dead elf without knocking over an inflatable snow globe or a giant blinking candy cane. For God sakes, Fox News itself is located in midtown Manhattan, the epicenter of all that is godless, secular, gay, Jewy and hellbound, and yet even here, all around your studio, it looks like Santa’s balls exploded.”

More hypocrisy and double standards from President Obama who warns Syrian government not to use chemical weapons while the US itself has used illegal weapons in Iraq, Afghanistan ,Libya etc. including Napalm now referred to as White phosphorus and ordinances with depleted uranium not to mention Cluster bombs referred to as "daisy Cutters" which are meant an an anti-personnel bomb which kills or maims victims whether they are terrorists or insurgents or civilians including children and the use of land mines which have been banned as have Cluster Bombs and Napalm.by most nations . There is solid evidence that the USA has used these various weapons on civilian populations as in Fallujah being the most dramatic . It is also the case that Israel has also used cluster bombs and White Phosphorus on densely populated areas of Gaza.

We don't hear Obama objecting to Israel using such weapons on civilians nor does Obama insist that the US military not use such weapons on civilians. President Obama and Netanyahu can use whatever weapons they wish to and butcher thousands of civilians with impunity because they of course are morally superior to all other nations and may even have God on their side.

The other concern here is whether talk of WMDs or Chemical Weapons is just another ploy by the US government to get more support for taking down President Bashir Asaad  in the same way the Bush Regime invented non-existent WMDs supposedly Saddam had and was therefore a threat to Israel and the Middle East. So Obama maybe pushing this story and narrative in preparation for using NATO to bomb Syria as it did to Libya killing tens of thousands of Libyan civilians.

Obama warns Syria against using chemical weapons U.S. officials said intelligence had detected Syrian movement of chemical weapons components by AP via Salon.com Dec. 3, 2012

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama warned Syria on Monday that the use of chemical weapons would be “totally unacceptable” and that the country’s leaders would be held accountable.

Obama said that if Syrian President Bashar Assad made the “tragic mistake” of deploying chemical weapons, there would be consequences. Obama stopped short of detailing those consequences.

Obama’s comments came as U.S. officials said intelligence had detected Syrian movement of chemical weapons components in recent days.

The White House said earlier Monday that it was increasingly concerned that the beleaguered regime in Syria might be considering use of chemical weapons against its own people and warned that doing so would “cross a red line.”

White House press secretary Jay Carney said U.S. officials were closely monitoring Syria’s proliferation of sensitive materials and facilities, as opposition to the Syrian government grows.

Obama spoke later Monday at a gathering on securing nuclear weapons materials.
Israel settlement plans prompt ambassador withdrawls

Obama defends Israel against rocket attacks from Gaza but makes no mention of the bombs rained down on Gaza or the Israeli brutal barbaric inhumane Apartheid system and its use of a blockade to collectively punish all Gazans including women, the elderly, the disabled, the sick, the starving and even children whom the Israelis claim are just terrorists in the making and so deserve death.

This expansion of Israeli Settlements has been the aim of the Israeli far right to which Netanyahu belongs that is to annex as much of the territory Israel conquered during the Six Day War in 1967.

Netanyahu is just using the United Nations action making Palestine a non-member state to justify expanding the settlements in the Occupied Territories including East Jerusalem which was supposed to at some point become the capital of a Palestinian state.So this is just part of Israel's end game as it is poised to recapture all of Greater Israel as promised to the Israelites by their God Jehovah/Elohim/Yaweh . Once God is made part of the argument there is little room left for compromise or diplomatic solutions. Besides some Israeli's and their supporters still claim that when Israel was being established in 1948 and before going back to the 19th century that the land was thinly populated and that the so-called Palestinian state did not exist as an official state or nation and that the Palestinian people did not at that moment exist as a unique people .

Though before the creation or re-creation of the State of Israel Christian, Muslim and Jewish Arabs lived on these lands for approximately the last 1400 years. The problem the Arab peoples have in the area referred to as The Holy Land or Palestine is that they did not have legal paper work done to prove they owned this or that particular land. The land was transferred based often upon a verbal agreement and everyone in the area accepted that person's or their family's right to own the land.

What the Israelis have done over the years is to use this lack of legal deeds to contest the ownership of the property involved. For many Arabs the ownership of a house was based upon them having the keys to the house or by having neighbors vouch for them. So the Israelis have taken advantage of this legal loophole to kick Palestinians out of their own homes and off of their lands because they didn't have a legal deed or if they did have a deed the Israelis would question its authenticity and whether or not it was legally binding that is they question the authority and legality of who may have granted the individual the original deed .

When the Israelis find they can't use these legal ploys they will and do use other means to steal lands and homes from the Palestinians for instance if a family member is alleged to be fighting against Israel the Israeli government says they have the right to confiscate the property of all family members even though this form of retaliation and collective punishment again contravenes International Law. Other means that are used is rezoning an area or inventing other reasons for authorities to steal houses and lands such as building highways or creating safety buffer zones between Arab Israelis and non-Arab Israelis etc.

Israel to advance East Jerusalem building: Despite international anger over settlement construction, Israel pushes ahead to build 3,000 homes by Amy Tiebel and karen Laub,AP via Salon.com, Dec. 24,2012

Israel retaliated for U.N. recognition of Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem by announcing plans to build 3,000 homes for Jews in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, as well as preparations for construction of an especially sensitive project near Jerusalem, known as E-1.

The Israeli reprisal has prompted the country’s strongest Western allies to take an unusually strong line with the Jewish state.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague warned Tuesday that the latest Israeli building plans would make the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel, with Jerusalem as a shared capital, “almost inconceivable.”

Australia and Brazil summoned the local Israeli ambassadors Tuesday in protest, Israel’s Foreign Ministry said, a day after five European countries, including Britain, took the same step.

Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev defended the recent Israeli decisions, saying that “from our perspective, Israel is responding in a very measured way to a series of Palestinian provocations.”

U.N. recognition could enable the Palestinians to gain access to the International Criminal Court and seek war crimes charges against Israel for its construction of settlements on occupied lands.

Last week, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said that he’s not going to turn to the ICC “unless we were attacked” and that he informed many countries, including the United States, of this position. Abbas spoke before Israel announced its latest settlement plans.

A senior Abbas aide, Nabil Shaath, said late Monday that “by continuing these war crimes of settlement activities on our lands and stealing our money, Israel is pushing and forcing us to go to the ICC.”

Israel also said it is withholding some $100 million in tax rebates and other fees it collects on behalf of the Palestinians. The monthly transfer of the funds is vital for keeping afloat Abbas’ Palestinian Authority, the self-rule government in the West Bank.

Shaath’s comments marked the most pronounced Palestinian threat yet of turning to the ICC, though officials suggested that appealing to the international court is a step of last resort.
