de facto and now de jure racism/apartheid

Finally, the Israeli Knesset puts it into words/law and is now de jure as
well as de facto racist/apartheid "Jewish nation-state" . The new "law"
violates international treaties and norms (including the 1976 International
Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid).
But on the bright side no one can now defend Israel as a "democracy" since
it is now not by practice alone but by clearly worded "law" that it is an
apartheid racist state for and by the Jewish people (imagine if a similar
law about "whites" or "christians" was instituted in any other country).

"Russian actions on its own doorstep in Eastern Europe do not in fact
threaten the United States or any actual vital interest. Nor does Moscow
threaten the U.S. through its intervention on behalf of the Syrian
government in the Middle East. That Russia is described incessantly as a
threat in those areas is largely a contrivance arranged by the media, the
Democratic and Republican National Committees and by the White House.
Candidate Donald Trump appeared to recognize that fact before he began
listening to Michael Flynn, who has a rather different view. Hopefully the
old Trump will prevail,there is, however, another country that has
interfered in U.S. elections, has endangered Americans living or working
overseas and has corrupted America’s legislative and executive branches. It
has exploited that corruption to initiate legislation favorable to itself,
has promoted unnecessary and unwinnable wars and has stolen American
technology and military secrets. Its ready access to the mainstream media
to spread its own propaganda provides it with cover for its actions and it
accomplishes all that and more through the agency of a powerful and
well-funded domestic lobby that oddly is not subject to the accountability
afforded by the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) of 1938 even though
it manifestly works on behalf of a foreign government. That country is, of
course, Israel” Julian Assange

In speaking to the flotilla participants I quoted Martin LUter King Jr:
“Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’
Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’
Vanity asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’
But, conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?’
And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe,
nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one’s conscience
tells one that it is right”
