Israeli President Shimon Peres yesterday addressed the AIPAC conference where he launched in to what must be considered as being the most hypocritical speech ever given to an AIPAC conference – and there have been many.
Speaking about ‘his Prime Minister’, Benjamin Netanyahu, he told his audience: “He knows history and wants to make history. In our tradition, making history is making peace, and I am sure that peace is his priority."
‘In our tradition, making history is making peace’? In the sixty years of Israeli history there has been nothing but war instigated by the Zionists of Israel against the Palestinian people.
Just to compound his hypocrisy, he continued: "Israel stands with her arms outstretched and her hands held open to peace with all nations, with all Arab states, with all Arab people," and then adds: "To those still holding a clenched fist I have just one word to say: Enough. Enough war. Enough destruction. Enough hatred. Now is the time for change. Israel is prepared today to bring peace closer. Today."
Apart from the blindingly obvious hypocrisy in these words, one has to ask; ‘What peace are you talking about?’
But Peres isn’t alone with this hypocritical nonsense. The word ‘peace’ seems to be a new buzzword among leading Zionist Israeli politicians these last few days as they talk about the ‘peace process with the Palestinians’. Even Israeli foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, on tour around Europe, has been talking about how the current Israeli government ‘could reach peace with the Palestinians’. Lieberman, speaking at a news conference in Rome, Italy, said that the Netanyahu government would reach a “secure and definitive peace with the Palestinians and the Arab nations around them”. Neither Peres nor Lieberman explained how this ‘peace’ was going to be achieved. For the Palestinians there will never be peace while Israel occupy their lands and, since Netanyahu has made it clear that there will never be a Palestinian state and the Likud Party’s entire platform revolves around a Greater Israel that includes the west Bank and the Gaza as well as the Golan Heights and south Lebanon up to the Litani River, one can only assume that the words of the Israeli leaders is pure rhetoric designed to buy more time while an excuse is found to trigger their confrontation with Iran.
Perhaps Peres and Lieberman really do mean there will be peace but only after the Iranian regime has been changed and the Israelis have smashed all Arab and Palestinian resistance to the Israeli Dream of a Greater Israel.
