Haaretz is reporting tonight that Jeffrey Feltman (kapo alert! kapo alert!), Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern affairs summoned Israeli ambassador Michael Oren to his office to chastise Israel for exerting its sovereign authority to enforce rulings made by its Supreme Court. Feltman referred to the evictions as "provocative," and "unacceptable," and a violation of Israel's obligations to the Highway To Hell plan.
Can I just say right here...again...that the Highway To Hell is not legally binding? Can I also say right here that the Arabs have not met any obligations under the plan, but that the Secretary of Hypocrisy, Hillary Clinton never makes mention of this while she chastises Israel? Why don't we ever hear reports of Arab diplomats being called into some douchebag's office to be chastised? Oh, because this administration is racist against Jews...I forgot for a millisecond.
Someone please tell me where in the Highway To Hell plan it says that the Israeli courts must come to a standstill and not rule on any issues? Please someone tell me where so that I can figure out how it is the international community thinks that one of Israel's obligations to the peace sham is abdicating its sovereignty?
Oren responded by saying that the property in question has been owned by Jews since before Israel's founding.
The fact is that Arabs were living there illegally. After years of back and forth, the court ruled in favor of the owners, not the illegal tenants. The US thinks this alters the "facts on the ground." The facts on the ground are that Arabs are engaged in illegal building in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria, but the racists at the White House and the State Department don't give a shit. It's only Jewish building that's a problem. It's Israel's courts, and the legal enforcement of its rulings that the United States has a problem with.
If I were the Prime Minister of Israel I would have the American ambassador called in every time an American court handed down a ruling and let my dog piss on his shoes, and tell them that the American courts have no right to change the facts on the ground by fulfilling their constitutional obligations. I mean, what's good for the goose is good for the racist douchebags.
In Sweden, the Israeli ambassador, Benny Dagan, was also called in to be chastised by the Swedish foreign ministry. According to Haaretz:
Swedish officials told Dagan that they did not understand the timing of the evictions, nor do they accept the legal arguments behind the move.
Again, who in Israel should give one shit what Sweden accepts or doesn't accept? Last time I checked there are no provisions in Israeli law where Sweden gets to veto
decisions made by Israeli courts.
Dagan fired back saying that Israel has been "extremely frustrated with Sweden's conduct,"
since assuming the EU presidency. In other words, they are acting like the racist, Jew hating peckers they are. He went on to complain that while Israel has been removing roadblocks, checkpoints, and other measures to ease life for Arabs in Judea and Samaria, Fatah has become more recalcitrant and vocal against the existence of Israel, and the EU hasn't done jack squat about it.
The Swedish meatballs lit their hair on fire and started screaming that this wasn't true, and that their position is exactly the same as the White House's position. Um...that's probably not a good backing argument assholes, considering that the White House not only hasn't condemned Fatah's statements that it will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state, and that it plans to continue its attacks in their attempt to liberate "Palestine," "from the land to the sea," but has been encouraging the terrorists by giving them money, even though they haven't met any of the obligations Hillary Clinton said they had to fulfill in order to get the money in the first place.
For those of you having a hard time visualizing the meeting at the Swedish Foreign Ministry, it went something like this:
Not to be left out of the slap fight, the Director of the Israeli Foreign Ministry General Rafi Barak called the Swedish ambassador in to tell her that Sweden has been a complete pain in the ass since assuming the EU presidency. Again, my dog would have pissed on her shoes.
In related news, Arutz Sheva reports that the Tnuvah cheese factory in Jerusalem, near the Biblical Zoo, was torn down so that construction could begin on a complex of 330 apartments for Hareidi Jewish families.
Condemnation from the State Department in 5...4...3...2...1...
Here's an OMV insta-rap about the flap.
Facts! Facts! Facts on the ground!
Facts on the ground are all around!
Jews are movin' in!
The cheese is comin' down!
Marack's butt cheeks clench and make a nasty sound!
