World Community Fails to Condemn Trump’s Annexation Scheme

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Like his predecessors, Trump supports Israeli apartheid, a ruthless system worse than South Africa’s.

It’s a process of slow-motion genocide of the Palestinian people by dispossessing them from their land and denying their fundamental rights, the world community doing nothing to contest what’s gone for time immemorial.

Sharp justifiable criticism of Trump’s annexation scheme was sparse — notably by Iran, Turkey, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Yemeni Houthis, Palestinians, and activists for peace, equity, justice, and the rule of law.

Ignoring its illegality, Britain’s PM Boris Johnson praised Trump’s scheme. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab called it a “serious proposal (sic), reflecting extensive time and effort.”

France welcomed Trump’s efforts to strike a deal between Israelis and Palestinians, ignoring its one-sidedness, fulfilling an Israeli wish list, supporting Palestinian subjugation under its repressive boot.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Mass issued a statement, saying: “Only a negotiated two-state solution, acceptable to both sides, can lead to a lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians” — not a hint of condemnation in his remark.

Envoys to the US from the Bahrain, Oman and the UAE attended Trump’s scheme of the century unveiling, expressing support by their presence.

UN secretary general Antonio Guterres operates as an imperial tool, supporting Western interests, breaching UN Charter principles, backing what demands condemnation — consistently failing to denounce US, NATO and Israeli aggression.

Instead of denouncing Trump’s annexation scheme of the century, he issued a weak-kneed/pre-scripted statement through his spokesman, saying:

“The United Nations remains committed to supporting Palestinians and Israelis
