Tzipi and The Guardian
By Gilad Atzmon
The interventionist EU, that together with the USA inflicts terror on every piece of land rich with oil and other minerals, decided yesterday that a Lebanese resistance to occupation is terror. It designated the Shia movement as a terror organisation.
The Guardian, once a respected paper, was brave enough to tackle the issue; but rather than presenting a so-called humanist or intellectual and critical approach, it pretended to present an ‘impartial position’. Yesterday it published a debate between war criminal Tzipi Livni and Sami Ramadani.
One may wonder, why is Tzipi Livni, an Israeli politician, a side in this debate? Israel is not part of the EU. Israel is clearly the element that pushes for the EU to brand the Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. Yet, it is far from being clear why The Guardian asked Livini for her opinion in that particular debate? Maybe time is ripe for The Guardian to decide whether it is the guardian of the truth or the guardian of Israel,
However, at least psychoanalytically, Livni’s argument is fascinating. The Israeli warmonger exhibits what projection is all about.
Livni insists, for instance, that the organization “carries out terror attacks targeting innocent civilians.” But in fact it is Israel and the Government Livni was a member of that was doing exactly that at the time of 2nd Lebanon War and Operation Cast Lead.
Livni also refers to democracy and to its values. “History has taught us how necessary it is to set limits and conditions for democratic participation”. But the truth of the matter is that it's Israel that locks millions of Palestinians in open-air prisons and rid them of any civilian rights.
But Livni is correct when she concludes that “a firm distinction between legitimate political parties and terrorist organisations is crucial for the survival of freedom, democracy and moderation.” Accordingly, it is Israel that should be designated as a terrorist apparatus, once and for all. Israel terrorizes the entire region and continuously threatens world peace.
