Palestine Wins Support and the US loses its Blackmail Laced Gamble

(A Russia Truth exclusive article by Adam Garrie) 

The United Nations General Assembly vote condemning and nullifying the US decision to recognise Al-Quds as the capital of “Israel” was said by many to be merely a symbolic showing of solidarity, but in reality the vote represented much more. 

The US scored an own goal when both Ambassador Nikki Haley and President Trump effectively upped the stakes by threatening to cut off aid to any country that votes against the increasingly isolated US/Zionist position. 

This had the effect of making the vote, not only one about Palestine, but one which served as an informal but unambiguous referendum on Washington’s willingness to isolate itself, including from traditional allies, over loyalty to the Zionist regime. 

Prior to the vote, Nikki Haley upped the stakes even further. She questioned why “Israel” remains part of the UN even though such an organisation is in her view anti-“Israel”. She then stated that if the US loses the vote (which even at that point was a foregone conclusion), it would “make a difference on how the Americans look at the UN”. The clear implication in this context is that the US might consider withdrawing membership. 

Although such a threat remains unrealistic, it demonstrates the level of desperation felt by US regime leaders at this time. 

Another significant development was the fact that the “Government” of Yemen represented by the Saudi/UAE backed Hadi regime in Aden, introduced the resolution. Although every GCC state voted in line with the wishes of Palestine, many countries ranging from Turkey and Iran to Syria and factions within Palestine (most especially the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine), have vocally criticised GCC countries for their lukewarm support of Palestine. Such fears have been augmented by the unspoken but obvious partnership that Riyadh enjoys with Tel Aviv. 

In this sense, one can see that Saudi Arabia and the UAE are using the Hadi led regime in Yemen, which is recognised by the UN as the formal government of Yemen, as the proverbial ‘good cop’ to Saudi, the UAE and Bahrain’s ‘bad cop’. Assuming Hadi remains in power and continues to be recognised as the Yemeni President by the UN, such a trend could continue, thus enabling Saudi and the UAE to have their cake and eat it too. 

While the leaders in Riyadh and Abu Dhabi continue to do their covert deals with the Zionist entity, their de-facto client state in Aden will take the moral high ground and continue to support Palestine with public vigour. 

Furthermore, South Africa has decided to rekindle the radical roots of the ruling ANC in agreeing to co-sponsor the resolution at the last minute. The DPRK (North Korea) made a similar decision. With the ANC making the decision earlier in the day to downgrade the status of the “Israeli” embassy in Pretoria, it is clear that South Africa remains ever more committed to the realities of the bi-polar world while continuing the long association of the ANC with the cause of Palestinian liberation. 

In spite of efforts to blackmail the world into a pro-Zionist position, the US was left totally isolated. Apart from the US and “Israel” other ‘no’ votes included the small nations of Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and Togo, as well as Guatemala and Honduras. 

Abstentions included: Antigua-Barbuda, Argentina, Benin, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Equatorial Guinea, Fiji, Haiti, Hungary, Jamaica, Kiribati, Latvia, Lesotho, Malawi, Mexico, Panama, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Rwanda, Solomon Islands, South Sudan,   Trinidad and Tobago, Tuvalu, Uganda, Vanuatu.

Every other country present voted in favour of the Palestinian position.

In the end, the US attempt to blackmail the world failed and support for Palestine remained vocal. This is more significant in 2017 than it would have been at any time since the founding of the United Nations, as in terms of diplomatic influence, the US is now weaker than it has been at any time since the founding of the United Nations. 

By associating the US with the lost cause of Zionism, the US has allowed nations to deliver what amounts to a no-confidence vote against America. The world spoke in fashion that was loud and clear.
