World tired of us: Israeli minister

Press TV – July 1, 2010

Israeli Minister of Trade, Industry and Labor, Binyamin Ben-Elezier

Israeli Minister of Trade, Industry and Labor, Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, says the world is tired of Israel and that Israel, rather than the Gaza Strip, is actually blockaded.

“We’re not the ones maintaining a blockade. We’re blockaded, utterly isolated. We’re in a situation where the world is tired of us,” the Jewish Daily quoted Ben-Elezier as saying in an interview in the Yediot Ahronot Friday supplement.

“They’re tired of hearing our explanations, of showing empathy for our troubles, even if they’re real troubles. (The world is) Tired of understanding us. This business just isn’t working anymore. After 43 years, nobody wants to hear any more explanations about why this occupation is continuing and how we have nobody to talk to.” Elezier continued.

Born in 1936 in Basra in southern Iraq, Binyamin “Fuad” Ben-Eliezer is the senior leader of the Labor Party’s hawkish wing, a tough-as-nails ex-general and currently the party’s grand old man.

  2. The criminal tells the truth…. the World IS fed up with the lies, the treachery, the corruptness, the breaches of international law, the breaches of humanitarian law, the murders, the killings, the inhuman practices of and by the Israelian state!

    The World in its entirety demands from the state of Israel to ends it game of being the victim, and stand up for what it claims to be: a democracy!

    The World sees a tyranny, a dictatorship, a criminal state, as that is what the state of Israel has developed into!

    A rogue, outlawed and criminal state!

    I wish you were right, but I can hardly see that dominant western players, especially USA, shows any actions to curb Israel. To the contrary USA seems to be colluding with Israel in confronting Iran, by sending Warships toward Iran.
    I agree that Israel is a criminal state, but that is NOT how the zionist-controlled western media portrays Israel, and consequently not how the western populations perceive Israel.
    At least that is what I experience here in Denmark.

  4. It is nice to hear the truth for a change and from a senior Israeli. It is time for the Good Jews of the world to realize that the USA and other Western countries are using the World Jewry to advance their political and economical agendas. It is time for all Israelis to wake up and say no to the killing, maiming, uprooting trees, confiscating and stealing lands, imprisonment of the Palestinians then justify their action in the name of Jews are victims and this is our “Promised Land”. Zionism is racism in any which way you look at it. Be aware of Christian Zionism and John Haggy.
