Following are excerpts
from an interview with Francis Boyle, US professor of international law, which aired on Al-Jazeera TV, October 26,
I am not here to defend and explain Zionism in America. I am here to
help the Palestinians. Ross, Miller, and Kurtzer – whom I was up against
personally, at the Middle East peace negotiations, for Dr. Haidar Abd
Al-Shafi – were more loyal to Israel than they were to the United
States of America under President Bush Sr. And Ross is now running the
show for Obama. I think that provides absolute proof that the policy
has not changed at all from 1991 until day, 2010. Ross the Zionist,
who is more loyal to Israel than to the United States, is still running
on the show for Obama at the White House.
In fact, when it comes
to US foreign policy to oppress the Palestinians, nothing has changed.
Obama was bought and paid for by Zionists. That's why Rahm Emanuel was
his chief-of-staff, until just recently, when he decided to run for
mayor of Chicago. Emanuel was bought and paid for to be put in there,
the same way with Ross and the White House. Mrs. Clinton sold her soul
to the Zionists in New York to get elected as senator from New York.
As you well know, all
the major US news media sources are Zionist – every one of them. Likewise,
higher education, here, in America, has become predominantly Zionist
in its orientation, since I entered college in 1968. As a matter of
fact, if I were trying to become a professor today, the Zionists would
make sure I could not become a professor – exactly as they did to
my friend Norman Finkelstein at DePaul University.
We have to understand
that historically, Israel has always been nothing more than a Jewish
Bantustan, set up by the Western colonial powers, in the Middle East,
to control and dominate the Middle East at their behest. It is that
simple. Israel does now what the United States tells it to do. Even
last week, President Peres publicly stated that Israel could not even
exist without the United States – and that's correct. The British,
the Americans, and the French created Israel as a Jewish Bantustan and
stuck it there in the heart of Palestine and the Arab world to control
and dominate that region of the world.
Professor Shibli Talhami,
Maryland University: First he says that the Zionists control
the US and its policies, and then he says that the US controls Israel,
so I'm not sure what his position is.
