Oz Faces Protests From ‘Occupied’ Constantinople!

The federal government will advise Islamic counterparts there is no shift to its Middle East policy as it seeks to calm an “overreaction” to its decision to stop calling East Jerusalem “occupied.”https://au.news.yahoo.com/world/a/24239441/julie-bishop-moves-to-quell-jerusalem-row/.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop should tell these arrogant upstarts to go stick their collective heads up a dead bear’s bum!

  • Most of the Middle East was forcibly ‘occupied’ by Islamic invaders quite a long time ago. So was Spain and Greece and the Balkans, until their liberation.

  • Unfortunately, the Crusaders failed to liberate Palestine – if they had, we wouldn’t have the current constant crisis situation!

The map above illustrates sectarian expansionism at its earliest stages.

Apparently this month’s anti-Australian ranters include Indonesia, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

 Those Arab lands give their own people, especially their women, few enough rights, so they can hardly gabble about rights and wrongs in other countries.

I’ll skip Indonesia – what possible interest Jakarta has in Jerusalem is beyond me.

But when we consider that the Fall of Constantinople occurred 800 years later, we realise how relentless that imperialistic aggression truly was.

  • And we can also put the protests from Turkey into context.  
  • Their Prime Minister Erdogan’s agenda is scarcely different from those ancient war-mongers.

That fanatic would likely be beside himself if we all took to talking about ‘Occupied Constantinople,’ instead of Istanbul.

Okay, it’s all history, but even today we have Aboriginal nutters in Oz itself claiming Australia is ‘occupied,’ and Hispanic nutters talking about how ‘Aztlan’ – much of the south-western USA – is ‘occupied.’




And Argie nutters still dementedly rail about ‘British-Occupied’ Malvinas!

Our Brit kin in Ulster say ‘what we have, we hold!’ 

And regardless of ‘diplomatic’ terminology, that’s the way of the world.
