The peace-loving Jews of USA, Israel, Britain and Ireland do not know that a game of blood and horrifying genocide is being played in their names. In a recent development, US State Department confirmed that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited West Bank, Palestine on 5 November 2023, but the trip was kept secret till the time Blinken had not physically left the West Bank. Attributing to Spokesperson Matthew Miller on 5 November 2023, said, “Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken met today in Ramallah with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.” International Media groups and channels have also run stories of the Secretary of State's courteous visit to West Bank in the midst of protests and angry Palestinian mobs. Those, which covered the Secretary of State’s visit to the West Bank, included all the media around the world. However, the fact cannot be denied that US Secretary of State Blinken never visited West Bank or Palestinian territories after the 7 October 2023, attacks.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on 29 January 2023, where the President of Palestine complaint about Israel's aggression where 35 Palestinians were killed in clashes with Israeli troops and seven civilians were shot dead by a Palestinian attacker in Jerusalem outside a synagogue on Friday and agreed in principle to two-state solution. Blinken promised $50 million in new economic assistance to Palestinians over the next two years, on top of $890 million already pledged, and 4G high-speed telecom services in the West Bank. Later on 4 November 2023, Secretary of State Blinken met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Amman, Jordan. There is no other visit that Washington can claim.
In fact, US is trying to act as a peacemaker but the Palestinians have rejected any mediation by the Western partners of Israel including some Muslim countries as these facilitators are accountable under, “State Sponsored Terrorism” and party to “Israeli War Crimes ” including the genocide of Palestinian orthodox Muslims. Secretary of State is quoted to have said, “We’re working very hard to make sure that the conflict in Gaza does not escalate, does not spread to other places. Whether it’s here, whether it’s elsewhere in the region,” but who carried out attacks on Syria, Iraq and Saudi border? Even after 7 October attacks, the Pentagon confirmed, “Since our self-defense strikes on 26 October, there’ve been six additional… three in Iraq, three in Syria. Right now, we’re tracking a total of 27 attacks, sixteen in Iraq, eleven in Syria”.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is hosting an extraordinary meeting of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on 12 November 2023, at Riyadh. There is a demand from the Muslim nations implementation of UNO Partition Plan dated 29 November 1947, with Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine. If we recall, on 30 December 2022, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution calling on the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to give its opinion on the legal implications of Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories. In addition to this, those nations who are accomplices in the Israeli genocide of Palestinian orthodox Muslims of Gaza and other war crimes must be trialed on the charges of “State-Sponsored terrorism”. Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and other Muslim and Latin American and African countries have plans to bring peace and demand accountability of war criminals and terrorists.
It is high time that the United Nations Organizations, which have been made hostages through blackmailing of closure of all funding and killing of its workers in Gaza, be empowered to restore peace and implement laws of terrorism upon the nations who are engaged in these crimes. In the US, international terrorism is designated pursuant to three laws: section 6(j) of the Export Administration Act, section 40 of the Arms Export Control Act, and section 620A of the Foreign Assistance Act. Hence, sanctions include restrictions on receiving foreign assistance from countries involved; a ban on their defense exports and sales; financial and other restrictions as well as penalizing countries and individuals engaged in trade with them. To bring a halt to the evil of terrorist activity, Israel along with allies’ assets must be blocked including individuals and entities that pose a risk of committing acts of terrorism.
