In Human Rights, International, Middle East

For the past six months, the U.S. government and its Western allies have resorted increasingly to brutal repression to silence critics of Israel’s genocidal regime.

At the same time, Western powers have employed extreme violence and other forms of aggression to maintain their position of dominance in West Asia and Europe.

NATO military spending, already at stratospheric levels, is soaring ever higher.

Meanwhile, Western governments have exhibited a deeply troubling tolerance for Neo-Nazism.

In September of last year, almost the entirety of Canada’s Parliament gave two standing ovations to Jaroslav Hunka, a Ukrainian-Canadian who had served, voluntarily, in the Galicia Division of the Waffen SS during World War II.

The U.S. and its Western allies also voted against a U.N. General Assembly resolution which denounced the glorification of Nazism.

And they have armed to the teeth Neo-Nazi units of the Ukrainian military.
