US, Australian & Anglosphere Responses To Apartheid Israel’s Illegal West Bank Annexation Plan

westbank settlement israel

US lackey, Coalition-ruled Australia is second only to Trump America as a fervent supporter of Apartheid Israel, with similarly pro-Apartheid Israel and hence pro-Apartheid and US lackey Canada coming a close third in this Anglosphere race to the bottom of the Palestinian Genocide barrel. Evangelicals-beholden Trump has not yet committed to supporting further illegal Apartheid Israeli annexation in the West Bank, with Australia and Canada disingenuously expressing “concern”.

What seems forgotten in all this international discussion of this latest Israeli flouting of International Law is that the West Bank (presently 3 million Indigenous Palestinian inhabitants)  and the Gaza Concentration Camp (presently 2 million inhabitants) have been highly abusively  ruled by Apartheid Israel  for 52 years in an evil, racist, de facto annexation that grossly violates International Law. Indeed Apartheid Israel has already illegally  annexed  Al Quds (Jerusalem,  the third holiest site for Muslims), and an ethnically cleansed Golan Heights (part of Syria).  Zionism is genocidal racism, and genocidally racist Apartheid Israel is based on mendacity, genocide and endless theft (see my poem “And then they stole the falafel” ). Zionist theft has meant that of Palestine that was nearly 100% owned by Palestinians a century ago, all but 10% has been ethnically cleansed by the Zionists, with the racist Zionists now threatening to annex a further 30% of this tiny remainder.

Acutely pertinent to this criminal Zionist proposal is the 2016  UN Security Council (UNSC)  Resolution 2334 that was passed unanimously (except for an Obama America abstention) and stated the following: “The Security Council,

Reaffirming its relevant resolutions, including resolutions 242 (1967), 338 (1973), 446 (1979), 452 (1979), 465 (1980), 476 (1980), 478 (1980), 1397 (2002), 1515 (2003), and 1850 (2008),

Guided by the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, and reaffirming, inter alia, the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by force,

Reaffirming the obligation of Israel, the occupying Power, to abide scrupulously by its legal obligations and responsibilities under the Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, of 12 August 1949, and recalling the advisory opinion rendered on 9 July 2004 by the International Court of Justice,

Condemning all measures aimed at altering the demographic composition, character and status of the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, including, inter alia, the construction and expansion of settlements, transfer of Israeli settlers, confiscation of land, demolition of homes and displacement of Palestinian civilians, in violation of international humanitarian law and relevant resolutions,

Expressing grave concern that continuing Israeli settlement activities are dangerously imperilling the viability of the two-State solution based on the 1967 lines,

Recalling the obligation under the Quartet Roadmap, endorsed by its resolution 1515 (2003), for a freeze by Israel of all settlement activity, including “natural growth”, and the dismantlement of all settlement outposts erected since March 2001,

Recalling also the obligation under the Quartet roadmap for the Palestinian Authority Security Forces to maintain effective operations aimed at confronting all those engaged in terror and dismantling terrorist capabilities, including the confiscation of illegal weapons,

Condemning all acts of violence against civilians, including acts of terror, as well as all acts of provocation, incitement and destruction,

Reiterating its vision of a region where two democratic States, Israel and Palestine, live side by side in peace within secure and recognized borders,

Stressing that the status quo is not sustainable and that significant steps, consistent with the transition contemplated by prior agreements, are urgently needed in order to (i) stabilize the situation and to reverse negative trends on the ground, which are steadily eroding the two-State solution and entrenching a one-State reality, and (ii) to create the conditions for successful final status negotiations and for advancing the two-State solution through those negotiations and on the ground,

“1.   Reaffirms that the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace;

“2.   Reiterates its demand that Israel immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem, and that it fully respect all of its legal obligations in this regard;

“3.   Underlines that it will not recognize any changes to the 4 June 1967 lines, including with regard to Jerusalem, other than those agreed by the parties through negotiations;

“4.   Stresses that the cessation of all Israeli settlement activities is essential for salvaging the two-State solution, and calls for affirmative steps to be taken immediately to reverse the negative trends on the ground that are imperilling the two-State solution;

“5.   Calls upon all States, bearing in mind paragraph 1 of this resolution, to distinguish, in their relevant dealings, between the territory of the State of Israel and the territories occupied since 1967;

“6.   Calls for immediate steps to prevent all acts of violence against civilians, including acts of terror, as well as all acts of provocation and destruction, calls for accountability in this regard, and calls for compliance with obligations under international law for the strengthening of ongoing efforts to combat terrorism, including through existing security coordination, and to clearly condemn all acts of terrorism;

“7.   Calls upon both parties to act on the basis of international law, including international humanitarian law, and their previous agreements and obligations, to observe calm and restraint, and to refrain from provocative actions, incitement and inflammatory rhetoric, with the aim, inter alia, of de-escalating the situation on the ground, rebuilding trust and confidence, demonstrating through policies and actions a genuine commitment to the two-State solution, and creating the conditions necessary for promoting peace;

“8.   Calls upon all parties to continue, in the interest of the promotion of peace and security, to exert collective efforts to launch credible negotiations on all final status issues in the Middle East peace process and within the time frame specified by the Quartet in its statement of 21 September 2010;

“9.   Urges in this regard the intensification and acceleration of international and regional diplomatic efforts and support aimed at achieving, without delay a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East on the basis of the relevant United Nations resolutions, the Madrid terms of reference, including the principle of land for peace, the Arab Peace Initiative and the Quartet Roadmap and an end to the Israeli occupation that began in 1967; and underscores in this regard the importance of the ongoing efforts to advance the Arab Peace Initiative, the initiative of France for the convening of an international peace conference, the recent efforts of the Quartet, as well as the efforts of Egypt and the Russian Federation;

“10.  Confirms its determination to support the parties throughout the negotiations and in the implementation of an agreement;

“11.  Reaffirms its determination to examine practical ways and means to secure the full implementation of its relevant resolutions;

“12.  Requests the Secretary-General to report to the Council every three months on the implementation of the provisions of the present resolution;

“13.  Decides to remain seized of the matter” [1].

Set out below as a series of quotations are how the Anglosphere countries of the US, Australia, Canada, the UK and New Zealand have responded to the Apartheid Israeli threat to illegally annex 30% of the West Bank:

(1). America – Evangelical-beholden Donald  Trump will probably agree, but Presidential Race-leading Joe Biden is opposed to the proposed Apartheid Israeli annexation.

Republicans. US President Donald Trump is presently undecided as to whether or not to support the proposed Israeli annexation of 30% of the West Bank. However he is critically supported by the fervently pro-Zionist Evangelicals and  Pentecostal Christians.  Thus Dr Mike Evans (a prominent Evangelical figure) (2 July 2020): “ Our support is crucial, and he [Donald Trump] cannot win it without us. We are 100% supportive of applying Israeli sovereignty to the region. Our support of this did not begin with Trump, but with our Bible, because we believe that God decided to apply sovereignty thousands of years ago and told it to the Jewish people’s prophets… I believe that any aide advising the president to withdraw his support on application of sovereignty could jeopardize the president’s chances of winning the elections. The worst thing the president can do during an election is announce his rejection of recognizing the land of the Bible, since all Evangelicals are united behind the Bible where it is stated that who blesses Israel – God blesses him. We will push any advisor urging him to refrain from supporting the application of sovereignty out of the White House” [2].

Of course this Biblical literalism is utter rubbish. Thus, for example, genetic analysis shows that I am 24% British Celtic and 57% Ashkenazi Jewish (Eastern European Jewish) but zero English, French, Benelux, Scandinavian, German, Swiss or Middle Eastern in origin, this being consonant with  about 300 years of recorded family history. As variously argued by anti-racist Jewish scholars Arthur Koestler (in “The Thirteenth Tribe”) and Professor Shlomo Sand (in “The Invention of the Jewish People”), the Ashkenazim derive from first millennium CE conversion to Judaism of Khazars in Southern Russia. Indeed the genetic descendants of the Palestinian Jews of the time of Jesus are today’s sorely oppressed Palestinians. The Jewish Israelis of today largely derive from Yemeni, Berber and Khazar converts to Judaism. The Ashkenazi Jews running Apartheid Israel are not Semitic but are highly abusively ruling 7 million  undoubtedly Semitic Indigenous Palestinians who descend from the Jewish and non-Jewish inhabitants of Rome-ruled Palestine. Indeed historical written use of the very name “Palestine” and its variants (e.g. “Palestina”)  dates back to the  Ancient Greek historian Herodotus (484 – c. 425 BC), and the name evidently derived from the Philistines, sea peoples who invaded Palestine in the 12th century BCE (see  Geoffrey Bromiley, editor, “The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia” and G.B. Grundy, editor, “Murray’s Classical Atlas”).

Democrats. In contrast, the Democratic Presidential candidate and former Vice President under Barack Obama,  Joe Biden,  is a fervent supporter supportive of Apartheid Israel and, of course, dances to the tune of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) that ferociously lobbies for Apartheid Israel. Indeed one of the last acts of the Obama regime was to give serial war criminal Apartheid Israel a further $38 billion in military aid over the next decade. However, even Establishment Americans have their limits, and Joe Biden  has refused to support the illegal annexation of West Bank territory, stating (May 2020): “I do not support annexation. The fact is, I will reverse Trump’s undercutting of peace” [3]. Indeed Barack Obama, who had been repeatedly humiliated in his own country by war criminal Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, declined to veto and merely abstained from the 2016  UNSC Resolution 2334 that castigated Apartheid Israel and was passed unanimously (except for the US abstention) [1].

(2). Australia – Australian Greens and the Labor Opposition correctly say that annexation violates International Law, but the pro-Apartheid Coalition Government has merely “raised concerns” over annexation with Apartheid Israel.

Australian Greens (26 June 2020): “The Greens call on the Australian Government to add its voice to global calls and forcefully speak out against the Israeli Government’s plans to annex parts of the West Bank in clear violation of international law” [4].

Adam Bandt (Australian Greens MP and leader of the Australian Greens) (26 June 2020): “There has been an increasing and overwhelming chorus of global voices condemning the Israeli Government’s plans to annex parts of the West Bank as soon as 1 July. Benjamin Netanyahu and Donald Trump have virtually no support on the international stage from leaders across the political spectrum, including many Jewish supporters of Israel internationally and in Australia. Yet the Australian Government remains resolutely silent, offering tacit approval for a plan that is an indisputably grave breach of international law, thwarts Palestinians’ right to self-determination, destabilises the entire region and further jeopardises the prospects of a two-state solution. This plan is not only a further blow to Palestinian human rights after decades of occupation and de facto annexation through settlement construction. It is also detrimental to Israel’s security – a point made by many in Israel’s security establishment – and it is a disaster for Israel’s democracy. The misguided and dangerous plan for annexation is driven by the far right in Israel and the US.  It is designed to prevent the creation of a Palestinian state, not to create conditions for peace.  It’s well past time for Australia to show some leadership and speak out.  Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Foreign Minister Marise Payne must make clear to the Israeli Government that serious breaches of international law have diplomatic consequences, including the possibility of Australia joining internationally coordinated sanctions should annexation proceed. This annexation is not a done deal – pressure from countries like Australia can make a difference. There has never been a more critical time for the Australian Government to speak against this gross breach of international law” [4].

Richard Marles (MP, Deputy Labor leader, Opposition Shadow Minister for Defence) and Penny Wong (Senator, Labor Leader in the Senate and Opposition Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs) (30 June 2020): “Labor opposes the annexation of land in the West Bank by the Israeli Government. Annexation of any part of the West Bank will weaken the viability of any future Palestinian state, undermine the prospect of a two-state solution, violate international law and risk destabilising Israel’s neighbours, which the world cannot afford. We expect the Australian Government to join with likeminded countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Spain in making these concerns clear. Labor is a strong supporter of the state of Israel – that will never change. We share the concern expressed by the Global Jewish Coalition and the Commanders for Israel’s Security – a group of 293 retired Israeli generals, admirals, and leaders from Mossad, Shin Bet, and the police – that unilateral annexation would jeopardise Israel’s security. Labor has a long and proud history of supporting a just and durable two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We continue to call on both sides of the conflict to refrain from any actions that hamper peaceful outcomes for both the Israeli and Palestinian peoples” [5].

Senator Marise Payne (Australian Coalition Government Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Women) (1 July 2020): “The Australian Government is a longstanding supporter of a two-state solution, in which Israel and a future Palestinian state coexist, in peace and security, within internationally recognised borders. We urge all parties to refrain from actions that diminish the prospects for a negotiated two-state solution, including: acts of violence and terrorism including rocket attacks on civilians, and land appropriations, demolitions, and settlement activity. In this context, we are following with concern possible moves towards the unilateral annexation or change in status of territory on the West Bank. The focus needs to be on a return to direct and genuine negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians for a durable and resilient peace arrangement, as soon as possible. Australia has raised our concerns with Israel in relation to indications of annexations, and I have done so directly with my Israeli counterpart” [6]. Senator Payne’s predecessor as Australian Coalition Government Minister for Foreign Affairs (2013-2018) , Julie Bishop (now Chancellor of the Australian National University),  notoriously questioned the illegality of illegal Zionist settlements on the West Bank.

(3). Canada – Fervently pro-Apartheid Israel and hence pro-Apartheid PM Justin Trudeau has “deep concerns” but the Canadian Ambassador to the UN says that annexation is “contrary to international law”.

Justin Trudeau, the craven, Zionist- and US-beholden  Prime Minister of US lackey, pro-Zionist and consequently pro-Apartheid Canada, has pusillanimously and disingenuously expressed “concern” over the proposed illegal and war criminal annexation (2 June 2020): “I have highlighted both publicly and directly to Prime Minister Netanyahu and alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz the importance of staying away from measures that are unilateral and our deep concerns and disagreement with their proposed policy of annexation” [7].

Marc-Andre Blanchard, Canadian Ambassador to the UN , seeking support for a Canadian seat on the UN Security Council, has found  some moral courage, stating in a letter to all UN ambassadors (10 June 2020):  “Canada views any unilateral annexation of parts of the West Bank as contrary to international law. Canada has expressed deep concern and disagreement with the proposed policy of annexation and raised the issue publicly” [7].

74% of Canadian citizens polled are opposed to the annexation [7].

(4). UK – Zionist-subverted, pro-Apartheid  Israel and hence pro-Apartheid UK Government timidly admits that annexation is “against the rules-based international order” and expresses concern over negative consequences for Israel; the Labour Opposition condemns annexation as illegal and proposes a ban on goods from illegal settlements.

James Cleverly (UK Middle East Minister) told the UN security council (June 2020): “Such a step [annexation] would go against the rules-based international order [International law] and the UN charter. Annexation could not go unanswered, and we implore Israel to reconsider” [8].

Boris Johnson (Tory PM of fervently pro-Apartheid UK) (June 2020): “[I am] fearful that these proposals will fail in their objective of securing Israel’s borders and will be contrary to Israel’s own long-term interests… [They] represent a violation of international law… Annexation would put in jeopardy the progress that Israel has made in improving relationships with the Arab and Muslim world… I profoundly hope that annexation does not go ahead. If it does, the UK will not recognise any changes to the 1967 lines, except those agreed between both parties” [9].

Lisa Nandy (Labour Opposition Shadow Foreign Secretary) and backed by the Labour leader, Sir Keir Starmer  (June 2020): “The proposal to unilaterally annex nearly a third of the West Bank is an illegal act which will undermine the prospect of a peaceful two-state solution for Israel and Palestine, and has serious implications for the stability of the Middle East. It is a shameful proposition to which the UK cannot be a silent witness. Across the world concern is growing … So far the UK government has been conspicuously absent from this global response. This is now urgent. The government must be clear with the Israeli coalition government that concrete action will follow, including a ban on goods entering Britain from the illegal settlements in the West Bank. This is a major step, but such a blatant breach of international law must have consequences. It will take a level of courage that so far ministers have not been willing to show” [10].

(5). New Zealand – New Zealand Government says that “annexation would gravely undermine the two-state solution, breach international law, and pose significant risks to regional security”.

Winston Peters (New Zealand Labor and New Zealand First Coalition Government Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister) (23 June 2020): “New Zealand is a long-standing supporter of Israel’s right to live in peace and security.  However, successive New Zealand governments have also been clear that Israeli settlements are in violation of international law and have negative implications for the peace process. The New Zealand Government’s view is that annexation would gravely undermine the two-state solution, breach international law, and pose significant risks to regional security.  We call on Israel to reconsider these plans. New Zealand has consistently pursued a principled and balanced approach to the Middle East Peace Process and continues to support a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This Government stands ready to assist in any constructive way we can to support this process. It is critical now for Israel and Palestine to work towards a negotiated, two-state solution. Both sides have legitimate issues and grievances and these have to be addressed through direct negotiations, with the aim of seeing Israel and a Palestinian state existing side by side, in peace and security”

Final comments.

Apartheid Israel is involved in an ongoing Palestinian Genocide and as a dirty tricks surrogate of the US has been complicit  in other genocidal atrocities around the world. Likewise Australia  is involved in an ongoing Aboriginal  Genocide and Aboriginal  Ethnocide as well as participating in numerous genocidal atrocities as a UK or US lackey. It is hardly surprising given this appalling history that Coalition-ruled Australia, led by fervent Christian  Zionist PM Scott “Scomo” Morrison (thence Scum-o, Skim-o, Scam-o, Scheme-o) , is second only to Trump America as a supporter of nuclear terrorist, racist Zionist-run, serial war criminal, genocidally racist,  democracy-by-genocide Apartheid Israel [12-14]. Indeed all 5 countries of the Anglosphere (the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand) derive from deliberate genocide of the original Indigenous inhabitants [12-18].

Apartheid Israel’s proposed annexation of 30% of the West Bank will leave only about 7% of Palestine for  Palestinian State for 14 million Indigenous Palestinians. Even those Anglosphere Governments  and Oppositions critical of this latest proposed genocidal atrocity bend over backwards to declare their undying love for Apartheid Israel. Thus the Australian Labor Opposition Shadow Minister for Defence: “Annexation of any part of the West Bank will … violate international law… Labor is a strong supporter of the state of Israel – that will never change” [5]. And, of course Zionist-subverted Mainstream media minimize or eliminate reportage of Apartheid Israel’s endless genocidal atrocities.

Accordingly it is useful to briefly sketch in numbers the horrific nature of the ongoing Palestinian Genocide:

(1)  since 1916 there have been 2.2 million Palestinian deaths from Zionist violence (0.1 million) or from Zionist-imposed deprivation (2.1 million );

(2) there are 7 million Palestinian refugees and all of the 14 million Palestinians are excluded from all or part of Palestine;

(3) of  about 14 million Palestinians (half of them children, three quarters women and children), 7 million Exiled Palestinians are forbidden to even step foot in their own country, 5 million Occupied Palestinians are held hostage with zero human rights under Israeli  guns in the Gaza Concentration Camp (2.0 million) or in ever-dwindling West Bank Bantustan ghettoes  (3.0 million),  and  nearly 2 million Palestinian Israelis  live as Third Class citizens under over 60 Nazi-style Apartheid Israeli race laws;

(4)  90% of Palestine has now been ethnically cleansed of Indigenous Palestinian  inhabitants in an ongoing war criminal ethnic cleansing that has been repeatedly condemned by the UN;

(5) GDP per capita is a deadly US$3,200 for Occupied Palestinians as compared to US$44,000 for Apartheid Israel;

(6) through  imposed deprivation, each year Apartheid Israel passively  murders about 2,700 under-5 year old Palestinian  infants and passively murders 4,200 Occupied Palestinians in general who die avoidably under Israeli Apartheid each year (i.e. a circa 10 year life expectancy gap; this violates Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War that demand that an Occupier must provide life-sustaining food and medical services to the Occupied Subjects “to the fullest extent of the means available to it” );

(7) despite the ongoing Palestinian Genocide and 2 mass expulsion events – the 1948 Nakba (800,000 expelled) and the 1967 Naksa  (400,000 expelled) –  50%  of the Subjects of Apartheid Israel are Indigenous Palestinians and of these  73% (the  Occupied  Palestinians)  cannot vote for the government  ruling them (i.e. egregious Apartheid) [12-14, , 19-26].

With 90% of the land of Palestine now ethnically cleansed of Indigenous Palestinian inhabitants (and Apartheid Israel now proposing a genocidal extension to 93%), the “2-state solution” is dead. The only realistic  solution for a peaceful and just Palestine is immediate dissolution of Apartheid Israel and its immediate replacement (after the example of  post-Apartheid South Africa) with a nuclear weapons-free,  unitary state in which all 14 million Indigenous  Palestinians, including 7 million presently Exiled Palestinians, will live peacefully in Palestine with Jewish Israelis,  with peace, nuclear disarmament, internationally-guaranteed airport-level security (with interim retention of the present armed forces), justice, equity, reconciliation, one-person-one-vote, equal human rights for all, zero tolerance for racism, and freedom for all citizens to go anywhere in Palestine. It could and should happen tomorrow  [27, 28].

Serial war criminal Netanyahu is simply waiting for the  Green Light from Christian Zionist-beholden Donald Trump in this 2020 Presidential election year. What can decent people do? Decent people must (a) inform everyone they can, and (b)  urge and apply Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions  (BDS) not only against Apartheid Israel but also against all those people, politicians, parties, collectives, corporations and countries who variously support this nuclear terrorist, genocidally racist, grossly human rights abusing, and serial war criminal rogue state.
