The United States will not condemn Israel’s genocidal policy against Palestinians because it only opposes genocide where it does not have hold on the perpetrators, an American writer and political analyst says.
The United States on Thursday hailed a promise from Saudi Arabia to scale down its air offensive against Yemen. White House spokesman Josh Earnest welcomed a statement that the year-old Saudi war on Yemen was nearing the "end of the major combat phase."
"We have expressed our concerns about the loss of innocent life in Yemen, the violence there that is plaguing that country has caught too many innocent civilians in the crossfire," Earnest said.
Commenting on this, Daniel Patrick Welch said, “The hypocrisy that wafts from this is just so odious. It’s incredible to listen.”
“It’s the same thing as what you heard Kerry saying the other day that ‘Daesh is committing genocide against Christians and Shias in Syria.’ These are the people that they have funded and set in motion – these vicious head-chopping attack dogs,” he added.
US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday determined that the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group is committing “genocide” against Shia Muslims, Christians, Izadi Kurds and other minorities in Iraq and Syria.
Daesh terrorists were initially trained by the CIA in Jordan in 2012 to destabilize the Syrian government.
Welch said Saudi Arabia tried to bomb Yemen -- one of the oldest cultures on the face of the Earth – into submission but it failed.
He added that “the US and its puppets…never apologize, they don’t even express sympathy, but they will appear to back down or take the right side once they got thoroughly and completely defeated in battle.”
“The things are not going at all well for the Saudis. So they’re going to pull back, and the US thinks that’s the good,” the analyst stated.
“In Syria, their death squad, heart-eating project to promote yet another coup in the 80-year carnage since the World War II has failed. And so they think that Daesh is doing a bad thing and it’s time to rein them in,” he pointed out.
“They will oppose genocide wherever they’re not holding the rein. You know, this doesn’t apply to Palestine [where Israel is carrying out genocide] for example. It doesn’t apply to Libya, where Madame Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in office. They witnessed the almost complete extermination of black people in Libya, and had nothing to say about this except this disgusting cynical laugh: ‘We came, we saw, he died,’” Welch observed.
