Medvedev on Why the West ‘Enthusiastically Shifted to Supporting Israel’

From the viewpoint of the US, Israel, and the West, the war must go on. This is why, according to Dmitry Medvedev.

Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev is certain that Israel’s ground operation in the Gaza Strip will still take place and will set off a “machine of reciprocal violence” for years to come.

This is part of his statement on his Telegram Channel: 

“Israel keeps postponing its ground operation in Gaza. Mostly under US pressure and for fear of sparking rage worldwide. But there should be no place for delusion. The operation will eventually take place and will entail the gravest, bloodiest consequences. 

“(The bloodthirsty Biblical figure of) Moloch always demands ever fresher victims. The machine of reciprocal violence will now be set into motion for years to come.”

Medvedev believes that the West is ‘very tired of the Ukraine theme’ and, thus, has “enthusiastically shifted to supporting Israel.” 

He pointed out that even the newly elected speaker of the US House of Representatives, Mike Johnson (Republican, Louisiana), named support for Tel Aviv as his top priority.

“Perhaps, it might all the same still be better to resume the Middle East settlement process and try, at long last, to implement UN Security Council Resolution 242 of November 22, 1967? Or even the original Partition Plan for Palestine, adopted on November 29, 1947 by UNGA Resolution 181?” Medvedev asked rhetorically. 

These documents required that a settlement be achieved in the Middle East through the creation of two states in Palestine: Jewish and Arab. 

Medvedev remarked that his questions were, “of course, rhetorical,” because “after all, divvying up and pocketing all that cash allocated for someone else’s war taking place far from American shores is a much more attractive proposition. And, so ‘The war must go on,’” he said.

Israel has, thus far, killed 7,326, including nearly 3,000 children, and 1,700 women; and wounded over 19,000 more. 

Palestinian Ministry of Health reports and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

Israel says that 1,400 of its citizens were killed in Hamas-led attacks on October 7. Many of those killed are soldiers and officers in the Israeli occupation army. 

Gaza has been under a tight Israeli military siege since 2007, following a democratic election in occupied Palestine, the results of which were rejected by Tel Aviv and Washington.
