How Zionist lobby stooges in Congress brought shame to their institution

As expected, the U.S. House of Representatives voted, on Tuesday 3 November, by 344 votes to 36, to urge the Obama administration to oppose endorsement of the Goldstone Report. But for those who are interested in truth and justice, not to mention democracy, the highlight of what passed for debate was the two-minute contribution of Dennis Kucinich, the Democratic Party’s representative for Ohio’s 10th district (and a starter candidate for the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 2004 an 2008).

His statement was a damning indictment of 344 of his colleagues. The following is the full text of it (my emphasis added).

Today we journey from Operation Cast Lead to Operation Cast Doubt. Almost as serious as committing war crimes is covering up war crimes, pretending that war crimes were never committed and did not exist.

Because behind every such deception is the nullification of humanity, the destruction of human dignity, the annihilation of the human spirit, the triumph of Orwellian thinking, the eternal prison of the dark heart of the totalitarian.

The resolution before us today, which would reject all attempts of the Goldstone Report to fix responsibility of all parties to war crimes, including both Hamas and Israel, may as well be called the “Down is Up, Night is Day, Wrong is Right” resolution.

Because if this Congress votes to condemn a report it has not read, concerning events it has totally ignored, about violations of law of which it is unaware, it will have brought shame to this great institution.

How can we ever expect there to be peace in the Middle East if we tacitly approve of violations of international law and international human rights, if we look the other way, or if we close our eyes to the heartbreak of people on both sides by white-washing a legitimate investigation?

How can we protect the people of Israel from existential threats if we hold no concern for the protection of the Palestinians, for their physical security, their right to land, their right to their own homes, their right to water, their right to sustenance, their right to freedom of movement, their right to the human security of jobs, education and health care?

We will have peace only when the plight of both Palestinians and Israelis is brought before this House and given equal consideration in recognition of that principle that all people on this planet have a right to survive and thrive, and it is our responsibility, our duty to see that no individual, no group, no people are barred from this humble human claim.

See and hear Kucinich delivering that statement on

The only slight quarrel I have with it is the possible implication that it’s the first time Zionism’s stooges in Congress have brought shame upon the institution. They’ve been doing that with knee-jerk and monotonous regularity since the creation of Greater Israel, by a war of aggression not self-defence, in 1967.

    I researched zionist from 1913 on the internet. They planed to take over the complete MID EAST. Now i can see how and why the neocons & zionist have penetrated our government.The shame of it is our gulible americans are doing nothing to stop it.I found my article about 1913 in my files about Jews & zionist control,that i printed 7 yrs. ago. PM SHARON said “Every time we do some thing you tell me America will do this & will do that…I want to tell you something very clear. Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. WE THE JEWISH PEOPLE CONTROL AMERICAN,and the Americans know it”.- ISRAELI PM. Ariel Sharon,October 3, 2001. Another quote “Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States,it can dry upand blow away.” Benjamin Netanyahu.A comment made by Netanyahu to Jonathan POllard (convicted traitor and spy) upon exiting Pollard’s jail cell.

    I agree with Mr. kusinic. When is the american people is going to wake up and see what the jewis lobby is doing to this country, they are ready to sacrify millions of people for their dream of creating a greater Israel.

    On March 5, 2008 after 4 days of bombs, artillery, and rockets that killed 24 Palestinian children the US House voted 404 yeas – 1 nay with 23 abstentions to condemn Palestinian rocket attacks on southern Israel. 83 Palestinians were killed in the first 63 days of 2008. In all of 2008, 4 Israelis died as a consequence of Palestinian rockets. I suppose we should count this recent vote condemning the Goldstone report as an improvement?
