Nelson Mandela Foundation Calls For UN to Act on Israeli Violations

Mazin Qumsiyeh, Ph.D. www.qumsiyeh.org

The right wing Zionists keep invoking “anti-Semitism” and the events of WWII to try to deflect any legitimate criticism of their cherished idol: the apartheid state of Israel. But this is no longer working. The list below just gives a glimpse from the past few days. Even puppets of the Israel lobby like Hillary Clinton gets pelted by shoes and tomatoes in Egypt!

But Zionists are busy pushing for war on Iran, legalizing violations of International law, ignoring human rights violations in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain while exaggerating those happening in Syria, and celebrating the appointment of someone who happens to be Jewish as head of the Superior Court of Great Britain! (Imagine if I was to celebrate such achievements for Christians). Do we live in an Orwellian world.
