From Bush to Obama to next in line: US is a bully whoever is president – USA and the War on Terror When George W Bush seemed to be the problem, an understanding of US power – the nature of which remains remarkably consistent from president to president – was lost.As protesters marched in European cities with placards of Bush underneath “World’s No 1 Terrorist”, the anti-war crusade became personalised. Bush seemed to be the problem, and an understanding of US power – the nature of which remains remarkably consistent from president to president – was lost. This week, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Counter-Terrorism, Ben Emmerson QC, demanded that the US allow independent investigation over its use of unmanned drones, or the UN would be forced to step in. These drones target militants, it is claimed, but according to a study by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, between 282 and 585 civilians have died in Pakistan as a result. After the latest strike this week, Pakistan’s foreign ministry said the attacks were “a violation of its sovereignty and territorial integrity and are in contravention of international law”.But while there were 52 such strikes in Pakistan in eight years of Bush, there have been over 280 in three and a half years of Obama. Numbers have soared in Yemen and Somalia, too. Two months ago, former US President Jimmy Carter described drone attacks as a “widespread abuse of human rights” which “abets our enemies and alienates our friends”.The US share of global economic output was nearly a quarter in 1991; today, it represents less than a fifth. The financial crash has accelerated the ongoing drain in US economic power to the East. With the last remaining superpower at its weakest since World War II, there is an unmissable opening to argue for a more equal and just world order, restricting the ability of Great Powers to throw their weight around. And a word of warning: if we don’t seize this opportunity now, one superpower will simply be replaced by another – and our world will be as unequal and unjust as ever.

Israel condemns South Africa for re-labelling of West Bank products South African ambassador summoned over move to label items as coming from occupied Palestinian territories not settlements. A diplomatic row has been growing as Israel summoned the South African ambassador to explain his country’s decision to label products from West Bank settlements as coming from the occupied Palestinian territories.”This is in line with South Africa’s stance that recognises the 1948 borders delineated by the United Nations and does not recognise occupied territories beyond these borders as being part of the state of Israel.” In 2010 the archbishop emeritus Desmond Tutu likened the treatment of Palestinians to the injustice of racial apartheid, urging a South African opera company to cancel its tour of the Israel. Last week South Africa’s deputy foreign minister Ebrahim Ebrahim recommended against visiting Israel. “Israel is an occupier country which is oppressing Palestine, so it’s not proper for South Africans to associate with Israel,” he told City Press newspaper. “We discourage people from going there except if it has to do with the peace process.” An international boycott of South Africa in 1980s was a crucial factor in forcing the apartheid regime to eventually surrender power. Israel was one of the last countries to sign up to the campaign.

Clear to all War against Iran: An act of madness. A “medicine” Worse than the disease. The Israeli public Knows it. The security experts Know it. But it is still Not understood By a megalomaniac Prime Minister And his bankrupt Minister of Defense. Published in “Haaretz” – August 17, 2012 When Israelis were asked “what would be better: for both Israel and Iran to have the bomb, or for neither to have it, 65 percent of Israeli Jews said neither. And a remarkable 64 percent favored the idea of a nuclear-free zone, even when it was explained that this would mean Israel giving up its nuclear weapons. a Middle Near East Community of Israel with neighbor countries, modeled on the 1958 Treaty of Rome for Europe, with an Organization for Security and Cooperation in the Middle and Near East-OSCMNE. This would all be consistent with the spirit of the Arab Spring, which also briefly touched Israel. Economic cooperation for shared development could be added.
