Setting the record straight…

The record is fairly clear. In fact, it’s unambiguously clear. Every year, the United Nations General Assembly votes on a resolution entitled “Peaceful Settlement of the Palestine Question.” And every year the vote is the same: it’s the whole world on one side; Israel, the United States and some South Sea atolls and Australia on the other side. The vote this past year was 164-to-7. Every year since 1989—in 1989, the vote was 151-to-3, the whole world on one side, the United States, Israel and the island state of Dominica on the other side.
We have the Arab League, all twenty-two members of the Arab League, favoring a two-state settlement on the June 1967 border. We have the Palestinian Authority favoring that two-state settlement on the June 1967 border. We now have Hamas favoring that two-state settlement on the June 1967 border. The one and only obstacle is Israel, backed by the United States. That’s the problem.’

Another problem was highlighted tonight by protesters on Hamra street in Beirut, who shut down a Starbucks outlet. Turns out Starbucks’ owner, one Howard Schultz, is an active zionist propagandist and fundraiser who donates part of his profits to the IDF. That’s apart from selling you crap overpriced coffee after you’ve been made to answer fifty useless questions. Starbucks has outlets all over the gulf from Riyadh to Kuwait City to Amman. Making the Arabs pay for the occupation of Palestine… I’m not necessarily agreeing with all the content on the site this link refers to (especially the parts where  they get all religious), but here’s something to think about before you swallow your next Big Mac: ‘McDonalds is a “major corporate partner” of the Jewish United Fund. In its own words, the Jewish United Fund works to maintain American military, economic and diplomatic support for Israel; monitors and, when necessary, responds to media coverage of Israel.” Also, McDonalds chairman and CEO Jack M. Greenberg is honorary director of the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce and Industry.’ When crap, overpriced and unhealthy food, anti-union terrorising activities and all-American stupidity just aren’t enough reasons… The full list of companies on the Boycott Israel campaign roll can be found here. Throw away that wonderbra now!

By the way, it is interesting to note that the richest Saudi, prince (or what did you expect?) Waleed bin Talal, through his company Kingdom Holdings, owns large stakes in some of the biggest and most notorious of the companies listed as supporters of zionism, including Murdoch’s Newscorp, AOL-Time-Warner, Disney, Macdonalds and Coca Cola…
