2.5 Million Threatened With Ethnic Cleansing

By SOP newswire2

Israel`s increasing international isolation is an indication of how the Revisionist Zionist policies of Netanyahu`s Likud party are viewed by the democratic nations of the world. In particular, the intention to build yet more illegal settlements in the Palestinian West Bank is seen as a contemptuous slap in the face to both the US and the EU, as well as to the United Nations.

Israel is a client state of America whose massive military and civil `aid` totals about 6 billion dollars annually in grants and loan guarantees. However, Israel`s most important market for bilateral trade is the EU, of which she is a non-member. Without American aid and European trade, Israel`s economy and infrastructure would quickly collapse.

Israel now has its detractors in Europe as well as the Middle East who perceive it as similar to the former apartheid regime in South Africa that was so close to the then Israeli defense minister, Shimon Peres, now.

Israel`s president. During the 1970s, Peres is reported to have colluded with South African premiers, B J Vorster and P W Botha, to supply atomic bombs and other weapons of mass destruction to the odious apartheid regime that imprisoned Nelson Mandela for 27 years.

As the state of Israel is now set to bring in an extremist, right-wing government, so the possibility of war increases and the spectre of a global conflict to protect Gulf oil supplies.
