How about an international award for hypocrisy? – by Alan Hart at Veterans Today

There really is no end and no limit to the hypocrisy.


William Hague: “I think Russia has to understand that if it continues to take this position it will be increasingly isolated”

Arising out the will of Alfred Nobel, the Swedish chemist who invented dynamite, the Nobel Prize is universally recognized as the most prestigious award in the fields of peace-making, economics, chemistry, physics, medicine and literature. How about an international award – without the gold medal, the diploma and the money – for hypocrisy?

Such an award could be called the Lebon Prize (reversing Nobel).

If there was such an award, the statements of European and American leaders in the immediate aftermath ofRussia and China’s veto of the Security Council resolution to end the killing in Syria suggest two most obvious nominees for it.

One is William Hague, Britain’s Foreign Secretary.

In the House of Commons he pronounced Bashar al-Assad’s regime to be “doomed” because there is “no way it can recover its credibility.” That may very well be the case in the long term, but in my view that Hague statement was somewhat naive at the time he made it. For its short to mid-term survival at the time of writing,and unless visiting Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is seeking to engineer Bashar al-Assad’s departure from office in a face-saving way that will protect Russia’s interests, the Syrian regime doesn’t need credibility in the outside world. It needs only enough weapons and the will to go on killing its own people. (That said there can be no doubt that Bashar al-Assad and/or his Alawite generals took the Russian and Chinese vetoes as a green light to escalate the killing. Also to be noted is that Bashar al-Assad was not the only Arab leader to draw a particular conclusion from Mubarak’s downfall. “If our people take to the streets demanding regime change, shoot them!”)

But the particular Hague statement that prompts my suggestion that he be nominated for a Lebon Prize for hypocrisy was this one. By exercising their veto “Russia and China have placed themselves on the wrong side of Arab and international opinion.”

The obvious implication is that it’s not good politics and policy to be on the wrong side of that opinion. Really? Then how do we explain the fact that all the governments of the Western world, led by America, are on the wrong side of it because of their support for the Zionist state of Israel right or wrong – unending occupation, on-going ethnic cleansing and all? There is a one-word answer. Hypocrisy.

United States Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, foreground right, and United Kingdom Ambassador to the United Nations Mark Lyall Grant, foreground left, vote to support a Security Council resolution backing an Arab League call for Syrian President Bashar Assad to step down at United Nations headquarters. (Mary Altaffer / Associated Press / February 4, 2012)

The second most obvious nominee for a Lebon Prize for hypocrisy is Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the UN. In condemning the Russian and Chinese vetoes, she said, “For months this Council has been held hostage by a couple of members.”

Given that for the Security Council has been held hostage for decades by American vetoes to protect Israel from being called to account for its crimes, that Rice statement is – what I can say without resorting to use of the “F” word? – hypocrisy most naked and taken to its highest level

No doubt readers will have other suggestions, probably many, for nominations for a Lebon Prize for hypocrisy.

Footnote

Hague also condemned China and Russia for “betraying the Syrian people”. It apparently doesn’t matter that the British and all other Western governments have been betraying the Palestinians for decades. There really is no end and no limit to the hypocrisy.

    It’s a shame that in the Arab world the Arab League could not help their fellow Muslims but they have no authority and seem to not be in charge. Each uprising in each place whether east or west is different from country to country but one thing is clear the people want their freedom from all the dictators and tyrants that ruled and were puppets of the west or vise versa ( we have our own puppets here who answer to unknown others). I pray the people will achieve what thay truely want as long as they stay united as the dark forces are at work to keep them divided as I have seen that is what has been happening in Libya, but good will prevail.
    As a last note, what Muslims do and what the foundation of Islam is this is two entirely two different things. The foundations and teachings of Islam are pure but some people have interpretated things and are certainly not men of knowledge of that I am sure, many things are taken out of context. I have been a Muslim for 33 years now and know how Islam is a beautiful way of life and if anyone is interested to find out they would also find it out. When many atrocities are committed and the Muslims are blamed ( and they have not done anything) many people actually become Muslims at those times. Last note though, the ones that do bad things are ingnorant of Islam and usually misguided and sometimes the west have used the vulnerable to commit their dirty deeds. CIA etc have tract records of not being all that they would profess, we all need our freedom from these conniving people!

    Totally off topic, but relevant to some degree, I saw the pilot of a new US series Called “Touch” about a boy seriously affected by so called autism. This boy is able to see into the past, the present, and the future. I will not bore with the details but I sometimes watch these things as very often they contain subliminal messages. In this series, it appears that the focus of the Psyops has changed to a degree as it gives a positive outlook.

    Though a complicated plot needing more than normal attention, there is a scene where an Iraqi boy decides to blow himself up (along with others no doubt) his only motive being to have sufficient funds to buy his baker parents a new oven.

    I have some Indonesian friends who often asked me my opinion of the US and British operations in Iraq and elsewhere. I do not support any man made religions and consider that I am neutral as there is only one Creator referred to by many names.
    I tell them that if i were a muslim, looking at what goes on, I too might interpret who are real terrorists and extremists, as that depends totally on the beholder and their own situation. So perhaps I can understand how some are influenced by the things they are. I sympathize with them and their feelings, and am guilty that we might have more than a little responsibility.

    The article that Jean posted, and again I thank her for these – highlight how we are guilty of creating so much of the terrorism in the world, and we harvest the results.

    Touch – he is saved by a lost phone whose owner is desperate for picture of his young daughter who had passed on and where only stored on his phone. In trying to trace the phone an operative manages to persuade the boy to remove the phones battery thus saving him, as the phone was the detonator. He still gets the oven to help his parents.

    Hope I have not given too much away, certainly worth watching it if only to see what truth lies hidden in some of these series, and how what we do can impact on others.

    Few British people have much time for William Hague.

    I was anti the Blair/Bush initiative, and while knowing she has no power i wrote to Eliaabeth II asking her to intervene, as it was not in the best interests that the UK become involved in Iraq.
    But that did no god although i did reactive reply from one of her staff advising that HRH had noted my comments and could not help as it is the government the people elected who take decisions on their behalf.

    I do not like violence that is going on in the middle east, as even now in Egypt that was perceived as a successful transition, the people think otherwise. It is all about power and the sad fact that a great deal of the British mentality is based on the historical impression that they know best, when the reality is that they are lost in a sea of confusion. I say that as a brit myself and am not pointing any proverbial fingers at someone else.

    No the violence in Syria is very sad, but it is up to the people there to sort it out along with their Arab League partners who share common ideals such as religion and culture. I would have hated the UN to do what they did in Libya again in the name of regime change on behalf of the people.

    It is all about double or triple standards and creating divisions and is an example of duality that we must loose to achieve unity.

    Sad – on this one I support Russia and China if only to prevent interference in what is nothing more than seeking some form of world domination.

      I agree with all that you’ve said, Tony. Hugs, ~Jean

      I agree with what you have said but just a point or two about Libya. The international community came to their defence after being threatened with a massacre in Bengazi and since the Arab League are not at all powerful in their own right they were rather stuck between a rock and a hard place. Also the freedom fighters on the ground were the ones to gain the absolute victory. I also know for a fact from my family and friends there that UN, NATO did not bomb them to bits as everything is very much in tact as it was before with the exception of many towns and cities that were bombed daily by gaddafi forces. It’s still a big job ahead of them but with patience and no outside interference they will I pray succeed as do all my friends and family all think that. Their is an air of jubilation because they have at least their freedom for the future ahead but no one thinks that their will be no challanges. The Libyans are very grateful for the International Community for their help when many others did not help.

        There are so many lies being told right now, Suzy, so I hope we will all read your words and keep our minds open. There is so much we just don’t really know at this point in time. My hope is, though, that very soon the Middle East will be left alone to straighten out their world, their lives, without the help of the US, which is clearly no help at all. Sadly, I believe the US at this point in time does not care about anything by controlling the Middle East for its resources, etc. Hugs, ~Jean
