With polls ahead of Thursday’s mayoral election putting George Galloway on no more than 1%, we could be witnessing the welcome political demise of a malignant racist.19:43 02.05.16 | 0 comments
The less said about the US administration the better. Without question, it will go down as the most disasterous presidency in American history. The lack of leadership is, both domestically and internationally is glaring. Beilin is right on the mark with his analysis of the bush pack. There certainly will not be any Pax Americana, not from the bushies or the Democrats. Hillary Clinton is too beholden to Jewish contributors to bolster her likely campaign for the presidency to ever confront Israel. Beilin says the only option is "do it yourself". But that seems as unlikely as either the Republicans or the Democrats holding Israel as responsible for impeding progress as the Palestinians. Surely Beilin sees that there is no will on the part of the present Israeli government to move toward a negotiated settlement culminating in the formation of a Palestinian State. The only way this Israeli government will budge is if it is pressured to do so and as Beilin points out, this will not come from any US administration. And as for the opposition in Israel, well, here there is a glimmer of hope but they too may succumb to the domestic realities within Israel and continue this propaganda line that Israel has made all the concession it needs to with the withdrawal from Gaza. Hopefuls should remember that it was under labour's Barak, that the colonisation enterprise went into high gear.
