BBC TV ‘News’ at 10pm GMT 28-01-20 showed jubilant scenes at the White House as President Trump trumpeted a final solution for Plan Dalet (1) in company with the Prime Minister of Israel.
There had been extensive coverage of the 75thanniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau and Bergen Belsen on the BBC. The news reader Reeta Chakrabarti reported from Auschwitz, where the Duke of Cambridge and his wife were part of the ceremony of remembrance and presumed determination against repetition. The Prince of Wales was shown at Vad Yashem, a mile from an unmarked Deir Yassin (2) where he gave a speech after he had shared a warm hand shake with Vladimir Putin. That speech (3) included these words -
“And we must never forget that every human being is be-tselem Elokim, “in the image of God,” and even a single human life is ke-olam malei, “like an entire universe.”
“ …. and to ensuring that those who lived through this darkness will forever, as in the words of the prophet Isaiah, be “a light unto the nations,” to guide the generations that follow.”
Shoah (שואה) , in the text of his speech is spelt with a capital S, just as the Nazi instigated Holocaust is spelt with a capital. These capitals require thought, because they speak of the exclusive, whereas shoahs are common. (4) One was promised by assistant Defence Minister Matan Vilnai (5) to the Palestinian people of Gaza, mostly descended from the largest part of the 800,000 refugees from Plan Dalet.
The Prince of Wales did not refer to the £5 billion attack weapon that is near completion bearing his name. Nor to the other aircraft carrier bearing his mother’s official name, HMS Queen Elizabeth (6). That was with a large US fleet in the Persian Gulf earlier in 2019, waiting for the pretext to attack Iran. The one half of the ‘Peace Deal’, absent of the Palestinian fraction, had been urging the destruction of Iran for a decade at least. Hilary Clinton had echoed this (7) - “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president, we will attack Iran. In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.”
The ‘ante had been further upped’ by the current salvation of Syria by Iranian proxies with the Syrian Army and most crucially, Russia. The goading continues with a further ratchet on sanctions targeted at all of 90 million humans, after the most obvious goading by assassination of General Suleimani and his party, just as they were involved in attempting to cool the western engendered fever in the ‘Middle East’.
The BBC – motto ‘Nation Shall Speak Peace unto Nation’ made no reference to the journalist Theodor Herzl and the Zionist project -
“Were I to sum up the Basel Congress in a word…it would be this: ‘At Basel, I founded the Jewish State. If I said this out loud today I would be answered by universal laughter. If not in 5 years, then certainly in 50. Everyone will know it’ “.Herzl Diaries 1897.
Nor to the 110 words of the Balfour Declaration in which Britain, lead by oxymoronic ‘Christian’ Zionists and urged by Weizmann and Rothschild especially, gave away some one elses peaceful and beautiful land to another. The ideological basis for this was a promise by a G-d to a chosen people.
The Morning Star of 29-01-20 summarised the elements of the US/Israeli Peace menu (8), and reported that Jeremy Corbyn had demanded that Boris Johnson reject Donald Trump’s “peace” plan for Israel and Palestine. The elements -
“Israel would gain sovereignty over its illegal settlements, Jerusalem would become its “undivided” capital and Palestinians living in Israel would be transferred to the West Bank. A proposed Palestinian “state” would be established on the remaining land, but under Israeli control.
The plan does not include any right of return for Palestinian refugees displaced during the Nakba in 1948 and the Israeli invasion and occupation of the West Bank in 1967.”
This series of diktats came from the unelected son-in-law of the POTUS, who as a ventriloquist has his hand up the back of a giant auburn haired dummy. Jared does not ‘do history’ (9) and is more in tune with real estate like the dummy. His history, as with selection of one very large shoah from all those that went before – especially on US occupied lands, and all those since, spells shoahs unending. From the massive and current – the Rohyngha, to the small – Diego Garcia, and the displacement of the Chagos Islanders to slums in Mauritius by the British for the US B2s.
The BBC TV ‘News’ at 10pm GMT 28-01-20 segment on this most violent hubris finished with Orla Guerin from Ramallah in that remnant of the wrongly named ‘West Bank’ of the foetid Jordan. Signs of anger, Palestinian flags of a people made a nation by occupation, and promises of a third intifada were broadcast. Ms Guerin finished facing the camera with her usual stern face. She quoted an ‘analyst’ speaking at the unveiling of this sickest of sick jokes. He had said -
“YOU’VE LOST. GET OVER IT”
These chilling words come towards the end of planned genocide (Lemkin) (10). Displacement of populations, mostly to ‘reservations’ are central. Kastner’s ‘perfidy’ was part of such in Hungary.
So at the world’s cross roads is one way a symbol of peace – the baby on its mother’s breast and my cry ‘no mother and child should be in the least harmed anywhere in our still beautiful world’.
The other way Orwell described -"If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever."

David Halpin is a retired orthopaedic and trauma surgeon in his 80th year. He gets some peace from this Satanism in the woods he planted 30 years ago. He and Sue his wife, with many supporters, launched the Voyage of the Dove and the Dolphin 1-02-2003 to Gaza – video ‘Eyes Open Gaza’ – 20 minutes. This voyage was in common humanity with a people on the Cross and to shout against the looming Supreme War Crime, the bombardment and destruction of Iraq and many, many thousands of its innocent humans.
