Len McCluskey: Libyan intervention should be halted and peace talks should be launched

6/4/2011 - The attack on Libya by British, French and US forces is wrong and should be halted without any further delay or futile loss of life, Len McCluskey, general secretary of Unite the Union, considers.

In his article published by The Guardian McCluskey writes: “I believe the present military intervention is a mistake which shows the lessons of Iraq have still not been learned.” Prolonging the conflict will surely lead to more civilian deaths at the hands of troops on both sides, in addition to those directly caused by the bombing, according to the author. The present action raises the alternative possibility of escalation, leading to military occupation of all or part of Libya. Similar occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan have shown how disastrous and counter-productive such interventions are, McCluskey reminds. “Escalation and "boots on the ground" will cost British soldiers' lives and will once more stoke up hostility to Britain across the Middle East and the Muslim world,” the author warns.

Rather than pumping up a civil war, coalition-members should be joining others in pushing for a ceasefire followed by international assistance in negotiating a better future for Libyans. “This could only lead to an extension of democracy in Libya at the very least, something that will be made harder by prolonged conflict” the author concludes.

Israel's ethnic cleansing plan

Since 2001, Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs and leader of Israel’s far right party, Avigdor Lieberman, proposes to establish four townships in the occupied West Bank, hermetically sealed, which would be grouped the Palestinians. He sees it as a solution for the Palestinian citizens of Israel, who are more than one million, to move the vast majority of the group in tightly closed, self-administered areas.
Thus would arise a State ethnically homogeneous from the Mediterranean Sea until the Jordan, sheltering in its midst Palestinian “Bantustans”.

Washington's support to ethnic cleansing and Apartheid of Israel

November 15, 2010 – ’U.S. President Barack Obama has praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for urging his cabinet to accept a U.S. proposal to extend a freeze on West Bank settlement building for 90 days. Under the plan, Washington would block UN resolutions critical of Israel, and supply Israel with fighter jets worth $3 billion. The US government also promised Israel that after the 90-day moratorium, they would not seek an extension, and settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (all of which is illegal under international law) could continue unabated.’


No-fly zone Libya: role of Israel

It is clear that the Israeli government who does not speak of the genocide on the Palestinians, does not support Gaddafi.
This is not surprising. Israel is the main military ally of the United States, Great Britain and France who, for the reason of oil, want a complete control over the Middle East.
Israeli minister favours Libya no-fly zone

AFP - Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Tuesday said he believed a no-fly zone should be imposed on Libya to stop a "danger of genocide".

Speaking at a conference in Brussels, Ayalon said international moves to impose a no-fly zone over Libya to stop Moamer Kadhafi using air strikes against his own people, had not been discussed by the Israeli government, but added:

"If you ask me personally, I think it should be imposed," he said.

There was "a danger of genocide" in Libya, he said.

"Morally we have to stop it", Ayalon said, adding "Its best to have the UN's okay."

US and European leaders have been weighing the use of NATO air power in a no-fly zone as Kadhafi fights a bloody rearguard action against encroaching rebels.

American ‘peace talks’… ;)


Obama ridiculed again

When asked in about Israel’s plans for 1,000 housing units for a contested part of East Jerusalem, Mr. Obama said, “This kind of activity is never helpful when it comes to peace negotiations.” “I’m concerned that we’re not seeing each side make the extra effort involved to get a breakthrough,” the president added during his visit to Indonesia. “Each of these incremental steps can end up breaking trust.”
A few hours later, Mr. Netanyahu’s office responded with a statement, saying that “Jerusalem is not a settlement; Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel.”
