Middle East Eye – 10 July 2020

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Your book “Hiramic Brotherhood: Ezekiel’s Temple Prophesy” is very interesting and talks, among other things, about the denial of human rights to an entire people, the Palestinian people. You also mention the ethnic cleansing practiced by the Zionist entity of Israel against the Palestinian people. Why are Western governments turning a blind eye to the abominable crimes of the Zionist entity of Israel? How do you explain the hypocrisy of Western governments regarding the just cause of the Palestinian people?

The son of a Lord, Baron Peston of Mile End, he is entitled to use the ‘courtesy’ title, ‘The Honourable’.

Maybe something good will come out of the Trump plan, after all. By pushing the Middle East peace process to its logical conclusion, Donald Trump has made crystal clear something that was supposed to have been obscured: that no US administration has ever really seen peace as the objective of its “peacemaking”.

US media have treated Trump’s launch of his Middle East “peace” plan as a sideshow to impeachment hearings in Washington.
But the plan, if imposed on the Palestinians by Israel, which worked with the Trump administration to develop it, would violate the rights of millions of people.
