To again emphasize how much the United States is basically Israel's bitch when it comes to world wide policies, I want to present the following article that comes courtesy of the website: Revolt Of The Plebs, at www.revoltoftheplebs.com, entitled: "The US Is Israel's Bitch!" The facts presented here are shocking and yet absolutely true. Here is that article:
The US is Israel’s Bitch!Posted by keith on Mar 27, 2011
“We are deeply troubled to once again be presented with a slate of resolutions replete with controversial elements and one-sided references that fail to address the real challenges of the region,” U.S. Ambassador Eileen Chamberlain Donahoe told the council.
The six resolutions the UNHRC approved condemned Israeli settlement activity and human rights violations in the “occupied” Palestinians territories and Golan Heights, and called for the right of Palestinian self-determination.
They also dealt with a follow-up report on last May’s Gaza flotilla and Israel’s military incursions in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead in late December 2008 and January 2009.
In contrast, the two resolutions on Israeli activity in the West Bank and east al-Quds (Jerusalem) had the approval of 45 members, with only the U.S. voting against them.
The Palestinian representative to the UN in Geneva, Ibrahim Khraishi, said that Israeli policy for decades has been reduced to the phrase, “Shut up, there is a war going on.” JPost

NTS Notes: I am so disgusted by the fact that the American public has allowed this to happen. I must ask again: How can the American people allow these traitors to their own nation sit in their own government?
There is a saying: "No Man Can Serve Two Masters", and this is especially true for the US Government. As far as I am concerned, these so called "elected" officials are traitors, and should be removed from office immedately.
Is the situation the same here in Canada? Absolutely! The Canadian federal parliament in Ottawa, Ontario, is full of traitors to the Canadian public who have also pledged their allegiance to their first love, Israel. It is indeed sickening to behold. I hope that Canadians remember this fact when they go to the polls to "elect" their next federal government in early May!
