The super terrorist’s bid to whitewash the unpardonable crime of the illegal Zionist regime in killing veteran Al Jazeera correspondent Shireen Abu Aqeleh in Jenin, Occupied Palestine last May 11, is nothing but a clumsy attempt by the US on the pretext of so-called investigation, to try to deflect attention of the world public opinion from its own complicity in Israel’s terrorist activities.
Surely, the Americans cannot disprove eyewitness accounts of the murder in broad daylight of this famous female Palestinian Christian journalist known for her exposure of Israeli brutalities.
These eyewitness accounts have also been confirmed by investigations led by independent organizations and media outlets which have concluded that the murderous Israeli soldier deliberately aimed his shot at the unprotected part of her head, despite the fact that Shireen Abu Aqelah, with the professional camera in her hand, was wearing the bullet proof vest inscribed “PRESS” in bold letters.
Her tragic death, followed by violence at her funeral in the Church by Israeli soldiers who attacked aggrieved Christian and Muslim Palestinian people, sent shock waves across the region, drawing worldwide condemnation.
The United Nations and the European Union, among others, despite their awe of the US, had to call for a full investigation into what has been described as a deliberate murder in cold blood.
It is obvious the US cannot succeed in its crude game in view of its blind and unequivocal support, both financial and political, of the past seven decades for the Zionist entity.
As a matter of fact, the crux of the chronic question of Occupied Palestine and prolongation of the plight of the oppressed people, is the illogical support of the US and the West for the unabated crimes of Israel and its frequent acts of terrorism which have now spread to Syria and Lebanon as well, coupled with blatant threats against the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Unfortunately, the UN has turned a blind eye towards these dangerous developments.
This shows the hypocrisy of the West, especially of the US, in manipulating the World Body, while wrongly claiming to be an advocate of human rights, which it is definitely not, as is evident by Washington’s streak of state terrorism around the world, in addition to the organized terrorizing of its own black-skinned citizens of African origin.
Amazingly, Joe Biden’s administration from day one of the killing of Shireen Abu Aqelah was calling for an investigation, not to determine the identity of the killers, but to give the Zionists a clean chit.
This is what Washington has eventually done, with the US State Department on Monday saying that its security coordinator had concluded Abu Aqeleh was not targeted but killed by unintentional gunfire from Israeli positions.
This type of conclusion is a clear sign that the super terrorist supports the terrorist acts of its poodles around the globe, whether in Palestine, or in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen, and the Islamic Republic of Iran.
