The game is up for Israels hirelings

Israeli propaganda chief Mark Regev’s wise-crack that the U.N. vote was just “negative political theatre” will, one hopes, come back and bite him in the ass. The Palestinians are now in a position to re-frame the situation, to insist on justice before any peace deals and to require that things are done in the right order. Francis Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law, suggests this could be the start of a ‘Legal Intifada’ by Palestine against Israel.

Why should Palestinians have to negotiate over Israel’s unlawful acts and haggle for their property in rigged talks when there’s proper recourse to the law? Israel’s pimps and hirelings are now exposed. No wonder the Zionist regime and its spin-masters are in such a flap.

Palestine might join the International Criminal Court and file complaints against Israel’s suspected war criminals, its illegal settlements and its settlers, who also are committing war crimes. Palestine could also sue Israel and break the illegal siege of Gaza. Palestine could join the Law of the Sea Convention and properly secure its right to Gaza’s huge marine gas field. It might also take action to gain, among other things, sovereign control of its own airspace, airwaves and frequency spectrum.

The Palestinians might declare their own borders on internationally recognized pre-1967 lines. Israel’s squatters, if they stayed, would automatically become Palestinian citizens - and serves them right.

Let’s hope the PLO have their paperwork ready. They’ve had precious else to do the last few years except plan for this moment.

The cracked gramophone recording by the likes of Obama, Rice, Clinton, Hague, Cameron, Netanyahu and even Ban Ki-Moon, slavishly calling for a return to negotiations, is laughably absurd. Everyone now sees through their game, which is to ensure that ‘talks’ drag on long enough for the occupation to become irreversible and for the Zionist crazies to realise their dream of a Greater Israel… and everyone else’s nightmare.

The sooner men-in-white-coats round up these stooges and ‘de-program’ them, the better for us all.
