DJ, Unconfirmed most but the news from the Middle East seems to be very, very bad...

South Lebanon/Golan Heights may have become another frontline. Lots of missiles/drones hitting targets all over Israel.

NATO very likely -most- seem to come to "help" Israel...Türkiye may have to make up its mind...

No rules or courts for the IDF....

Friday may see very major protests in most (western) countries...public opinion may be completely different from what a political elite is doing....

Things can escalate very fast...going down the hill high speed...

DJ, lots of false info on the Israel crisis...YES-Dutch air force planes landed in Israel...but they were military Airbus planes picking up Dutch people trying to get out of Israel...Maybe those planes did bring some (medical) supplies on the way in...

U.S. Plans To Ethnically Cleanse Gaza

This is, presumably, the U.S.-Israeli plan for the Palestinian people in Gaza:

Harry Sisson @harryjsisson - 1:44 UTC · Oct 11, 2023

Amazing: President Biden is working on a plan with other countries that would allow civilians to safely leave Gaza and cross the border into Egypt. This is great news. President Biden is making sure that innocent people don’t die due to the actions of Hamas. That’s leadership.

No, it is not leadership. It is ethnic cleansing, a war crime disguised as humanitarian gesture. It is ethnic cleansing of people who's land has been stolen by Zionist settlers. These people would have no right of return to the homes and land they once owned. People who have been put into an open air prison, who have no access to electricity, water and food and are currently under intense attacks.

Egypt, the only country where they potentially could be moved to, is already bankrupt. It can not even provide for its own people. Two million new people from Gaza, all poor and some of them radicalized, would undoubtedly unbalance the Egyptian state.

Should such a plan be put into action it would guarantee that the resistance axis, Hizbullah and various other Sunni and Shia groups in the Middle East, would step in. The would attack Israel to prevent such a move.

The U.S. thinks it can deter resistance action by threatening to move in with its own forces. That's why the USS Herald Ford, its newest carrier, was moved into the Eastern Mediterranean. Rumors have it that a second carrier will come in too.

But the resistance can not be deterred by that. The last time the U.S. tried to intervene in Lebanon it ended up with 241 dead Marines and had to retreat in shame. Hizbullah at that time was only a handful of men. Today Hizbullah has tens of thousands of very well trained men. Then there are also Iran and Russia:

agitpapa @agitpapa - 12:24 UTC · Oct 11, 2023

As I said in my analysis today of the NATO intervention in the Israeli northern front, it's inconceivable that Russia should stay silent in the face of such brazen NATO overreach. This seat-of-the-pants, unmandated NATO panic move will speed up Russia's pivot from pro-Israel to pro-Arab that started with the deaths of Russian airmen caused by an IAF aggression against Syria and was locked in with Netanyahu's support for the nazi regime in Kiev.

The Russian military has long identified Israel as an enemy state and Putin is now conceding to them, acknowledging the failure of yet another one of his strategies, namely the political use of the Russian Jewish community in Israel via his "friend" Avigdor Lieberman. Russian Jews in Israel are virulently anti-Arab, so Putin tried not to upset them.

Today, however, with Bibi bringing in the full might of NATO to the Eastern Mediterranean to threaten not only Lebanon but Russian bases in Syria, it's no more Mr. Nice Guy. With Patrushin and Shoygu holding the reins of state and a clear and present NATO threat on Syria's doorstep, expect a strong and unexpected Russian intervention in the multifront Israel-Hamas-Hezbollah war.

DJ, Putin tried to be friends with netanyahu only to be betrayed by netanyahu...

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xs7cQQ5vnf4[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xs7cQQ5vnf4 Judge Napolitano/Scott Ritter (SR);

-Israel intel failed because they had the facts/intel but "wishfull thinking"  (and AI) did result in wrong conclusions...

(DJ- It may answer some of my questions-how it can be Israel missed this hamas-terror-attack...But Israel defense failed for hours...maybe because those to react at first were killed/wounded or hiding/fighting/trying to get in a better position ?) 

-DJ, Of course this mass murder comes in a long list of mass murders...Israel till october killed over 300 Palestinians...The "west" ignored the Israeli terror...

----------------

The IDF would be preparing for ground operations into Gaza. SR and many others point to the underground defense infra structure in Gaza...The Israeli Air Force now only is bombing the "upper floor" and killing hundreds of Palestinians in the action...

Moving into Gaza by ground forces will result in very heavy losses for Israel. It would also start other "problems". Again -this time- the Lebanon and Syria border did become one front line...Israel provided aid to "Syrian rebels-like IS"...

Zelensky trying to link the war in Ukraine with that in Israel...he knows that now NATO weapons end up in Israel...Ukraine is moving towards collapse...

----------------

DJ-NATO/US trying to limit damage;

-Ukraine is collapsing...another defeat...

-Arab countries are now moving even faster towards BRICS+...

(DJ-If Egypt, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Ethiopia did not join BRICS+ within a few months would we than be in this crisis ? )

-Most people in the west do NOT support a political crazy elite getting involved on the Israeli side...

-Tomorrow may see massive protests against the Israeli terror...The unbalanced elite crazyness has major economic consequences...[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eB96bBDfO8Q[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eB96bBDfO8Q DJ-people sometimes work 80 hrs a week to limit debts...

DJ...internet issue...

[url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/10/palestine-open-thread-2023-237.html#[/url] or https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/10/palestine-open-thread-2023-237.html# ;

News of the day:

Gregg Carlstrom @glcarlstrom - 4:51 UTC · Oct 12, 2023

MbS spoke last night with Iran's president Raisi (!). First call ever. From Saudi readout: MbS "expressed deep concern for the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza" and "underscored the kingdom's unwavering stance in standing up for the Palestinian cause."
HRH Crown Prince Receives Phone Call from Iranian President

The call was likely in response to U.S. plans for the ethnic cleansing of Gaza:

The US is in active talks with Israel and Egypt to establish "safe passage" corridors for civilians in Gaza to flee ongoing Israeli airstrikes, the White House said Wednesday amid an expected ground offensive in the besieged enclave.

the west did kick cans down the road, creating money out of thin air buying time to NOT solve problems ....Time has run out...

After the NATO disasters in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya NATO started another disaster in Ukraine...the rest of the world is no longer accepting that. BRICS+ is a better alternative...

Denying problems, pandemic, climate collapse...empty words-does not work...

Forbidding pro-Palestine protests makes western "democrazy" even more empty...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/political/could-germanys-government-collapse-fdp-could-be-eyeing-early-exit-coalition[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/political/could-germanys-government-collapse-fdp-could-be-eyeing-early-exit-coalition ...Poland has elections sunday, Germany has regional elections...here in NL we have elections next month...

"If elections changed anything they would be forbidden" so new faces providing no new answers....

Hamas may have used western weakness as the moment for its major terror attack...Israeli over-reaction may be part of the hamas-plan...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/israels-defense-chief-admits-failure-protect-citizens-after-security-collapsed[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/israels-defense-chief-admits-failure-protect-citizens-after-security-collapsed ;

However, one wonders: if Israel's military and intelligence is this efficient at positively identifying Hamas operatives and their residences or hideouts in the middle of a war unfolding, how was Saturday's large-scale incursion - in which jihadists even took over IDF outposts - able to happen? How was it not foreseen (and with the widely reported Egyptian advanced warning to boot)? 

-

Speaking to four Israeli security officials, NYT also outlined that the wave of lapses included:

  • Failure by intelligence officers to monitor key communication channels used by Palestinian attackers;

  • Overreliance on border surveillance equipment that was easily shut down by attackers, allowing them to raid military bases and slay soldiers in their beds;

  • Clustering of commanders in a single border base that was overrun in the opening phase of the incursion, preventing communication with the rest of the armed forces;

  • And a willingness to accept at face value assertions by Gazan military leaders, made on private channels that the Palestinians knew were being monitored by Israel, that they were not preparing for battle.

And then there's this epic line in the report: "We spend billions and billions on gathering intelligence on Hamas," Yoel Guzansky, a former senior official of Israel’s National Security Council, said. "Then, in a second, everything collapsed like dominoes."

DJ...so how well is IDF intel when they want to go into an urban fortified Gaza war ? 

-----------

DJ-I think a lot of diplomacy may be ongoing to limit further escalation...Israel moving into Gaza may drag the US into a position confronting not only Russia but also the Arab/Islamic world...

DJ, yesterday-this weekend-widespread protests around the globe...Pro-Israel demonstrations protected by police in NATO countries, pro-Palestine demonstrations may even get attacked...

The Duran [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDYB1mTWiSY[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDYB1mTWiSY BRICS preparing a two-state peace plan...Western "leaders" visiting Israel to "show support" without any real solutions...

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtUvodNbRW8[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtUvodNbRW8 Military Summary;MS;

-Unclear yet who will lead the non-western group to get out of this crisis

-The "west" again not able to come up with answers...only more weapons...

-DJ, I think there could be several coalitions within BRICS+

   -A Russia/India/China one still seeking diplomacy

   -An Iran/Arab one looking for "sanctions" on the west

   -Muslim countries in between...if radical Islamic groups gain to much influence it may be a problem in Indonesia, Pakistan, Egypt...

DJ-By now the non-western world may be losing patience with the US/NATO...kicking down the can for decades-"fake diplomacy" only created Hamas etc...The west only wants western domination for western goals...

-----------

In Ukraine Russia may be using the momentum...Ukraine may be running out of new supplies while Russia may have recieved new stocks from North Korea. 

MS mentioned Bahkmut as an example of modern urban warfare...however Bahkmut once housed a 70,000 population and was almost empty during the fighting...That fighting did see tens-of-thousends killed...Gaza is populated, still over 2 million people in a much more urban area...

DJ-I think Israel may think twice before they start a ground war in that area;

-What would be the Israeli goal needing (large scale) ground operations ? Release of hostages may be more succesfull via indirect talks/prisoner exchange..

-A Gaza ground war will start a major conflict with at least Hezbollah...

-Limiting civilian losses in such an urban area will be impossible...a ground war in Gaza would hurt Israel a lot...

-IDF military losses may run in the thousends-only in a first phase of a major Gaza land operation...

So-yes-Israel may claim they will start such a land war but the main goal may be getting more (western) help...

On the other hand I think also Israel would love to not destroy relations with Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Russia, China...

----------------------

Since Egypt tries to limit the flow of refugees most people in Gaza are stuck...soon without water or hospitals...Hamas is stopping people from moving to southern Gaza...

Western propaganda makes it Hamas using the population as a human shield-however giving up northern Gaza would very likely see Israel destroying it and reclaiming it...

Like with the pandemic "real news" is limited....lots of false info around...

Can OPEC+/Gulf States stop selling energy to the west with winter on its way ? I think they will use the energy weapon-increasing further energy prices and inflation...

IF however Israel would start a major ground war in Gaza we may see an escalation of conflicts explode around the globe...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/escobar-geopolitics-al-aqsa-flood[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/escobar-geopolitics-al-aqsa-flood 

Incompetence. Willful strategy. Or both.

That brings us to the cost of launching this new “war on terror.” The propaganda is in full swing. For Netanyahu in Tel Aviv, Hamas is ISIS. For Volodymyr Zelensky in Kiev, Hamas is Russia. Over one October weekend, the war in Ukraine was completely forgotten by western mainstream media. Brandenburg Gate, the Eiffel tower, the Brazilian Senate are all Israeli now. 

Egyptian intel claims it warned Tel Aviv about an imminent attack from Hamas. The Israelis chose to ignore it, as they did the Hamas training drills they observed in the weeks prior, smug in their superior knowledge that Palestinians would never have the audacity to launch a liberation operation.

Whatever happens next, Al-Aqsa Flood has already, irretrievably, shattered the hefty pop mythology around the invincibility of Tsahal, Mossad, Shin Bet, Merkava tank, Iron Dome, and the Israel Defense Forces. 

Even as it ditched electronic communications, Hamas profited from the glaring collapse of Israel’s multi-billion-dollar electronic systems monitoring the most surveilled border on the planet. 

Cheap Palestinian drones hit multiple sensor towers, facilitated the advance of a paragliding infantry, and cleared the way for T-shirted, AK-47-wielding assault teams to inflict breaks in the wall and cross a border that even stray cats dared not. 

Israel, inevitably, turned to battering the Gaza Strip, an encircled cage of 365 square kilometers packed with 2.3 million people. The indiscriminate bombing of refugee camps, schools, civilian apartment blocks, mosques, and slums has begun. Palestinians have no navy, no air force, no artillery units, no armored fighting vehicles, and no professional army. They have little to no high-tech surveillance access, while Israel can call up NATO data if they want it. 

DJ, A major reason why the Israeli army (IDF) did not start a ground war against Gaza may be pressure from "the west"...The weather is used only as an excuse...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/hamas-claims-26-hostages-died-israeli-airstrikes-including-foreigners-after-idf-finds[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/hamas-claims-26-hostages-died-israeli-airstrikes-including-foreigners-after-idf-finds ...also the UK may send its navy and some planes towards the Middle East...(for now)...As far as I know France did NOT send its carrier [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_aircraft_carrier_Charles_de_Gaulle[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_aircraft_carrier_Charles_de_Gaulle 

-One weak spot is a lot of US bases are in Muslim countries now "in conflict" with Israel...So the US may be "limited" in using their bases in Türkiye, Jordan, UAE, Qatar...

-Another point has to do with energy...If not make energy deals with Russia than make deals with other suppliers...but OPEC+ may no longer be willing to make deals with the "west"...

[url]https://www.msf.org/hospitals-are-overwhelmed-catastrophic-situation-gaza[/url] or https://www.msf.org/hospitals-are-overwhelmed-catastrophic-situation-gaza Israel demanding 1,1 million Palestinians move from Gaza-city to the southern part of Gaza -south of a stream of water...in fact is unacceptable for even most pro-Israel governments...

DJ-The "west" may have their "worries" on netanyahu/Israeli extremists;

-They have been pusjing for a war with Iran for decades...

-Also some Israeli extremists want a larger Israel "more Jewish"...

So "the west" could find itself getting involved in another war they should not be in...With very high costs for western economies...

---------

If biden even would like to dream of getting re-elected in US elections he has to have inflation, economy, on his side...The Ukraine war already is a major costly disaster...

The US idea may have been EU, UK buying more US energy-saving the US-energy-$...in reality US energy is much to expensive and the US may not have enough for foreign demand...

So the EU is importing record number of India diesel...of course made from Russian oil....

DJ-I am NOT a supporter of trump...but I do think trump would get the US out of this crisis high speed by talking to Putin, China...even NK-Kim if need be...This only underlines the basic problem is biden unable to go for any kind of diplomacy...

----------

Can "the west" limit damages ? 

NO !!! The present crisis -my view- is the outcome of western arrogance since the end of the USSR if not longer....

The rest of the world will NOT accept any kind of neo-colonialism by the west...BRICS+ (Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa, Egypyt, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Iran, Ethiopia and Argentina join per 1-1-24) may offer a "mix" of economies/currencies (with the old BRICS all have an "R" in their currency name so R5) that can be interesting for lots of countries...

Indonesia wants to stay non-aligned...some other countries could follow that road...But in fact it may make the western position even weaker [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-Aligned_Movement[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-Aligned_Movement because it could result in a major non-western bloc NEXT to BRICS+...

----------------

DJ, With Ukraine yet another NATO disaster-after Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen-even the Military Industrial Complex (including banks making profits out of war) may have reached its limits...

NATO is destroyed by debts...their economies close to collapse...You can not have a military industry without any perspective of profits in a capitalist system...The military industrial complex in most BRICS+ countries is state owned...tax funded...NOT tax being used for getting share holders rich by war...

So...will we have "peace" in Ukraine, Middle East ? Maybe we will see "frozen wars"...Korea-scenario's...With BRICS+ doing "trade not war" with anyone interested...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, Again...pandemics have a background. Wars make health crises much worse...Some claims of smallpox in Gaza showed up in the news. The Israel/NATO mass murder/genocide of Palestinians in part will be done by destroying healthcare...

-A very likely major reason why Israel groundforces still are not inside Gaza may be in calculations...IF Israel moves into Gaza with a lot of US support the position of the US in the Middle East would even get worse than it already is...

Israel needs -for now- US military in the Middle East. The US bases-from Türkiye, Jordan to UAE, Qatar, Iraq, Syria all are at risk with a large scale Israeli ground war in Gaza...

-Another point may be the goal of such a war...Push all Palestinians-over 2,3 million-towards Egypt ? This may end a peacedeal with Egypt...make Egypt again an Israeli enemy..

Egypt will join BRICS+ per 1-1-2024...Egypt becoming anti-western may leave NATO with another Suez-canal problem...

-The surprise terror attack of Hamas on october 7 is showing Israel is not as strong and secure as it loves to claim...Iron dome ran out of missiles to bring down Hamas missiles...On the Gaza-border Israel intel failed to see 1+1+1+1=4...They even knew Palestinians were training on para-gliders/deltawing ultralight planes...but failed to come up with the idea some radical groups may have been planning any kind of attack...

-In Gaza the Israeli Army itself once build fortifications...Several Palestinian groups may have been working on defenses for years...Even if Iran, Yemen Houthis or others did NOT help -and even with Israeli intel having done a very bad job- it is clear a war inside Gaza will be very bloody...

-There were protests against netanyahu in Israel. Lots of people inside Israel see netanyahu as a very major problem...A war inside Gaza may be long and have no clear winner...dividing Israel even further...

-We had a large pro-Palestine demonstration yesterday/sunday here in NL-Amsterdam...The "west" already is no longer pro-Israel...only a "crazy political EU elite may still support this war"...With lots of (regional) elections the west is not waiting for a major Middle East war...wich also would push up inflation even worse...

So...Israel/NATO wants to show "strength"...in fact because they know they are very weak...

Behind the scene there is a lot of diplomacy...Russia may cover Türkiye in providing aid to Gaza...(and I think Egypt may be part of such a plan). China (a.o.) may come up with another peace initiative...In fact-in many ways-it is the west, in need for energy and with massive debts, that may find itself empty handed...

DJ-Ukraine is moving closer to collapse...A reason why zelenski may still be in power is disagreement on replacement...Poland, Germany, NL face growing political crises...

I would not be surprised if "western leaders" would give up on Ukraine, Israel to save their own neck...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, Inside Israel there is growing criticism towards netanyahu....

[url]https://electronicintifada.net/content/israeli-forces-shot-their-own-civilians-kibbutz-survivor-says/38861[/url] or https://electronicintifada.net/content/israeli-forces-shot-their-own-civilians-kibbutz-survivor-says/38861 

An Israeli woman who survived the Hamas assault on settlements near the Gaza boundary on 7 October says Israeli civilians were “undoubtedly” killed by their own security forces.

It happened when Israeli forces engaged in fierce gun battles with Palestinian fighters in Kibbutz Be’eri and fired indiscriminately at both the fighters and their Israeli prisoners.

“They eliminated everyone, including the hostages,” she told Israeli radio. “There was very, very heavy crossfire” and even tank shelling.

The woman, 44-year-old mother of three Yasmin Porat, said that prior to that, she and other civilians had been held by the Palestinians for several hours and treated “humanely.” She had fled the nearby “Nova” rave.

If indeed the Israeli forces themselves killed hostages a good investigation is needed. It further increases questions on how this terror attack could happen...Why Israeli security failed this much...

-------

US "FM" blinken did have very long talks with Israeli leaders...An overreaction from Israel would damage the US/NATO position in the region. It did NOT stop Israel from attacking targets in Syria, Lebanon...

DJ-Is netanyahu trying to push a major war ? Again-NATO supposed to attack Iran because of nuclear issues ? (With NO discussion on Israeli nuclear weapons...) 

NATO itself is divided over supporting Israel...The EU can NOT take over the US role in Ukraine...Germany sending old Leopard-1 tanks (over 60 years old !) to Ukraine does not help...

Military Summary expects another Ukraine offensive crossing the Dnepr-river near Kherson...trying to get at least some western support...

Lots of people expect zelenski to step down soon...(or be kicked out/killed). However "what is next" is the major question...A risk for both Ukraine and Israel may be a civil war (possibly ON TOP of already ongoing wars...). 

The west itself is sinking into economic chaos...[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAErqW7vj7Y[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAErqW7vj7Y ;

Derivatives and the coming collapse w/ Alex at Reporterfy (Live)

DJ [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derivatives_market#Netting[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derivatives_market#Netting 

US: Figures below are from the second quarter of 2008 [6] Archived 2007-12-26 at the Wayback Machine

  • Total derivatives (notional amount): $182.2 trillion (second quarter, 2008)
    • Interest rate contracts: $145.0 trillion (86%)
    • Foreign exchange contracts: $18.2 trillion(10%)
    • 2008 Second Quarter, banks reported trading revenues of $1.6 billion
  • Total number of commercial banks holding derivatives: 975

If you did see the US debt as a problem the derivatives are far worse...with a few "players" able to "blow up" the global economy....

However some countries-Russia a.o. are much less exposed...This does however NOT mean they will use a derivative"bomb" ...it may do a lot of damage to them...

Derivatives, shares etc. can be used to "guide" towards some goals or trying to remain in some positions. It may both be used to keep a US$ in a global position AND to weaken that position...For that matter it could become a tool in a global financial war...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Russia and China diplomacy for war off-ramp. Isolated Biden goes to Israel

DJ, Putin is in Bejing meeting Xi. BRICS+ (including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iran, UAE) may be trying to find ways to not only end the crisis in Israel but also work on long term solutions for both Ukraine and the Middle East.

The Gaza hospital bombing most likely for now;

-Was an Israeli action

-Was done on purpose

Even if hamas had a weapon storage or used the hospital as a shield it is NOT an excuse for Israel for attack. 

"crazy joe" showing his support for Israel...with other NATO "leaders" mostly still following US orders...Outcome very likely is the Arab/Muslim world breaking further ties with a "west gone crazy"....US bases in the Middle East, including Türkiye, Qatar, may become "impossible"...

[url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/10/us-deploys-large-force-eyes-on-syria.html[/url] or https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/10/us-deploys-large-force-eyes-on-syria.html The US could be thinking of "providing help" to Israel if a war breaks out between Israel and Syria. Assad would like to reunite the Golan-heights...

DJ, In Ukraine from time to time Russian missiles hit targets that are fired from planes hundreds of kilometers from the target...Syria is not that far away from Russia..In the past Iran allowed Russian planes to use Iran bases/airspace for actions in Syria. 

So far Russia limited both Iran and Hezbollah inside Syria from reacting to Israel air strikes...

----------------

With Israel now also attacking places were wounded people, refugees, seek safety there may be a red line crossed. 

-Russia could allow Russian made airdefense provided to Iran/Syria to be used against Israeli fighters...

-Russia could also increase its navy presence in the mediterranean and near Iran. 

-China may decide to go for a stronger role

--------------

I think Russia/China may still try to "make trade not war" however if others now may go further Russia/China could try to limit it still...India, Brazil, South Africa (old BRICS) also may try to play a role...

The "west" has made itself a part of the problem...positioning itself in fact behind netanyahu...Both in Israel and the west most of the public may be fed up with western leaders promoting war...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, With the agreement of joe biden Israel bombed [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Saint_Porphyrius[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Saint_Porphyrius one of the oldest christian buildings still functioning...People did try to find a safe place there...(also christians...) very likely hundreds killed...

DJ-I think the Israeli goal is to provoke "others" into action to get (even more) US/NATO help...

My view; IDF moving into Gaza in a ground war -to push 2,3 million Palestinians into Egypt- would be totally insane...Mean war with even Egypt, Jordan, Türkiye...So netanyahu is trying to provoke military action from Hizbollah, Iran/Syria...and than "in self defence" NATO will "help"....

Update(1735ET)Israeli media is reporting that the United States is currently in talks to establish 'safe zones' in Gaza after it was widely reported that the IDF has been given the green light by the Netanyahu government to go into the Gaza Strip. There are also emerging reports that an Orthodox Church in Gaza has suffered attack by an Israeli strike, via Times of Israel

The Hamas-controlled interior ministry says several displaced people who had taken shelter at a church compound in the Gaza Strip have been killed and injured in an Israeli strike.

There was no immediate comment from the IDF, which tells AFP it is looking into the potential strike.

The strike left a “large number of martyrs and injured” at the compound of a Greek Orthodox church, the ministry says.

Witnesses tell AFP the strike appears to have been aimed at a target close to the place of worship where many Gaza residents have taken refuge.

Additionally, Russia has said it is moving more military assets to its bases in Syria.

-

The Pentagon has confirmed that American troops suffered injuries during the last 24 hours of drone and rocket attacks against bases in Iraq and Syria:

Two drones targeted a base in western Iraq used by U.S. forces, and one drone targeted a base in northern Iraq. U.S. forces intercepted all three, destroying two but only damaging the third, which led to minor injuries among coalition forces at the western base, according to a statement Wednesday by U.S. Central Command.

"In this moment of heightened alert, we are vigilantly monitoring the situation in Iraq and the region. U.S. forces will defend U.S. and coalition forces against any threat," Central Command said in the release.

On Thursday, several drones and rockets also targeted US troops locations in Deir Ezzor Syria and Al-Tanf.

Update(1458ET): A huge escalation from Iran-linked militants, just after international headlines reported Israel's military has been given the "green light" to enter Gaza:

According to CNN, a U.S. Navy vessel operating in the Middle East region intercepted multiple missiles launched from Yemen. A U.S. official says the missiles were launched from the Iran-backed Houthi militant group.

According to more from ABC's senior Pentagon correspondent, US officials confirm to ABC "the destroyer USS Carney shot down multiple Houthi missiles last night. They were NOT aimed at the ship, but headed in a northerly direction." There's speculation that they may have been fired toward Israel in solidarity with Gaza. Israel media is reporting:

Israel believes that the missiles launched from Yemen and intercepted by a US warship today were aimed at Israel - Channel 13

DJ, Israel/US now not only insulting Muslims but also orthodox christians...(From Russia, Greece to Egypt, Ethiopia..Egypt and Ethiopia both BRICS+ member per 2024).

One act of terror can NAVER be any kind of excuse for more terrorism...The present netanyahu extremist government is destroying Israel...The US/NATO is "helping" in the proces...

DJ-My view; BRICS slogan "make trade not war" ...meaning in this case more and more economic warfare; dumping US$, US debts, decreasing energy to NATO members in support of insanity...

Besides that US/NATO bases may no longer be safe...anywhere...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, Here in NL a "political elite" keeps pushing pro-Israel excuses...[url]https://www.dutchnews.nl/2023/10/extinction-rebellion-palestinian-flag-projected-on-landmarks/[/url] or https://www.dutchnews.nl/2023/10/extinction-rebellion-palestinian-flag-projected-on-landmarks/ 

Two local groups attached to environmental movement Extinction Rebellion Netherlands movement have been busy this week projecting the Palestinian flag on Dutch landmarks.

On Monday, the Palestinian flag was projected Utrecht’s Dom Tower for a little over an hour by Justice Now!

And Wednesday night, Extinction Rebellion Rotterdam projected the Palestinian flag atop the city’s Euromast from 9 pm to 10.30 pm

“We did it primarily because in politics and the media, the dominant narrative is the support of Israel’s right to defend itself even though according to UN officials, there’s a mass ethnic cleansing going on right now,” Extinction Rebellion Rotterdam and Justice Now! spokesperson Victor told Dutch News.

“No politicians are talking about that, even though Israel has been getting away with these types of crimes for decades, and it’s time for people and politicians to speak out about it.”

Saying they want to put “the true narrative out there”, Extinction Rebellion Rotterdam and Justice Now! are calling on the Dutch government to “stop supporting Israel and bring Netanyahu and others committing war crimes to justice before the International Criminal Court (ICC).”

Although the actions may seem a bit outside the mandate of a movement fighting for “climate justice”, Victor says they are completely compatible.

“This is about justice,” he said in reference to the Palestinian flag actions. “We are for life everywhere, and we speak up when lives are in danger, whether it’s the capitalist system destroying the environment or committing genocide. It’s the same system, run by a small group of rich, powerful people. We are for justice for humans, animals and planet. It’s our moral obligation to speak out against oppression, or else we stand with the oppressors.”

Victor says the police were at the group’s door an hour after the Euromast action began, saying the owner didn’t support them. “We took it down after 1.5 hours. A lot of us had to go to work.”

This may underline the gap between "politics for sale" and democracy...The present political elite does not stop fossil fuels, made Israel a bridgehead to the oil/gas production in the Middle East.

Biden wants multiple wars, $60B to Ukraine. Middle East shuns POTUS. Brazil ceasefire.

DJ, In the security council the west (US,UK,France) blocked both a Russian and Brazilian call for a ceasefire...Again underlining (this) Israel -like Ukraine- is part of "NATO"...Neo-colonial Atlantic Terrorist Organization...

Hearing Biden's Speech Line by Line is TERRIFYING & infuriating

RJ Eskow plays the speech back and points out all the horrifying messages buried in it. 

DJ, biden/NATO (again) defending war crimes...Ukraine after the 2014 coup genocide on Russian-speakers, Israel genocide on Palestinians..

Collective punishment for the crimes of some, bombing civilians because there might be fighters...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/poll-finds-lackluster-desire-arm-supply-israel-even-among-gop[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/poll-finds-lackluster-desire-arm-supply-israel-even-among-gop in the US support for (more weapons to) Israel is dropping...DJ-Like the rest of the world the US may start realizing weapons only may be part of a strategy...not ALL of it....

[url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/10/netanyahoos-strategic-dilema.html[/url] or https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/10/netanyahoos-strategic-dilema.html ;

Netanyahoo's Strategic Dilemma

Israel is a colonial settler state in permanent conflict with the suppressed natives.

It thought it could survive in that state, or even extend its settlements, by deterring opposing forces with its superior military.

Hamas has breached that deterrence myth by inflicting, in one day, more casualties in Israel than it had experienced in any previous wars.

Natanyahoo is under pressure to restore the deterrence, to again provide the Zionists with a feeling of superiority.

He can not do that.

Any land attack in Gaza means urban warfare in an already destroyed city with large underground facilities. During the taking of Bakhmut the Wagener forces had in total some 40,000 casualties (dead and wounded). The other side had more than 70,000. What price would the IDF have to pay to 'destroy Hamas'?

The other factor is of course Hizbullah and other resistance groups, which may well attack Israel from the north and various other directions. Hizbullah has loudly said it would do so should the IDF enter Gaza. It has some 100,000 missiles - more than enough to exhaust Israel's air defenses. Its longest reach missiles can attack any major city within Israel. There have already been daily fire exchanges at the norther border.

The 2006 war in Lebanon has shown that Hizbullah is dug in and very able to defend itself. It has since gained more experience by fighting ISIS in Syria. Neither U.S. air force attacks nor a land force invasion can hinder Hizbullah from firing its missiles.

(Syria, as well as Iran, will not intervene in the war unless they are directly attacked.)

DJ, Assad in Syria wants all parts of Syria under Syrian control...including the Golan Heights...Hizbollah is one of the pro-Assad forces in the NATO made Syrian war...Israel has been attacking Iran in Syria, Syrian forces...providing "help" to IS and other "moderate terrorists"....

The Freedom Museum in Groesbeek near Nijmegen has been given a unique photo album made by a British volunteer in the region during World War II.

Jack Speller, a pacifist and conscientious objector to the war, ended up on the front lines in the Netherlands after joining the YMCA, which ran a welfare operation for young soldiers.

“Because he was a pacifist, I think wanted to do something for people who suffered so much in the war,” daughter Marcelle told broadcaster NOS. “He was deeply influenced by what he saw and experienced.”

-

Soldiers were happy to see his van, with the red YMCA label on it and his services were very welcome. The average soldier, Marcelle said, was satisfied with anything that was “wet and warm”, she said, meaning a cup of tea.

“If someone was at breaking point, you could see it in their eyes most of all,” Speller’s daughter told NOS. “These were boys with the worries of old men.”

During his time in Nijmegen, Jack met and fell in love with local girl Tonnie Kuijpers and they remained together. Daughter Marcelle will officially hand over the album to the museum on Wednesday night.

The photos show “a deliberately invisible form of care on the front line, which also makes it less visible in our post-war memory,” the museum said.

DJ, NO ONE !!! has ANY !!! right to kill a fellow human ! If you want to prevent wars do not fight wars...If "politicians" want to fight it out...let them do the fighting !

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/escobar-russias-neutrality-ballet-israel-palestine[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/escobar-russias-neutrality-ballet-israel-palestine ;

Except for one stunning statement last Friday at the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) Summit in Bishkek, when Putin blasted Israel’s “cruel methods” employed to blockade Gaza, and compared it with “the siege of Leningrad during World War Two.”

“That’s unacceptable,” declared the Russian president, and warned that when all of Gaza’s 2.2 million civilians “have to suffer, including women and children, it’s hard for anyone to agree with this."

Putin’s comments may have been one hint at the changes underway in the frustratingly opaque Russia-Israel relationship. A close second is this very important article published last Friday on Vzglyad, a security strategy website close to the Kremlin, diplomatically titled “Why Russia remains neutral in the conflict in the Middle East.”   

It’s crucial to note that only six months ago and mirroring a near consensus among Russia’s intelligence community, Vzglyad editors were calling for Moscow to shift its considerable political weight toward supporting the number one issue for the Arab and Islamic worlds.  

The article noted the key points Putin voiced in Bishkek: there’s no alternative to negotiations; Tel Aviv was subjected to a brutal attack and has the right to defend itself; a real settlement is possible only via an independent Palestinian state with its capital in East Jerusalem.  

The Russian president favors the UN’s original “two states” solution and believes that a Palestinian state should be established “by peaceful means.” But, as much as the conflict was “a direct result of the failed policy of the United States in the Middle East,” Putin rejects Tel Aviv’s plans to launch a ground operation in Gaza. 

This qualified hedging is certainly not evidence of Putin swinging to what is a near consensus among the General Staff, the siloviki in several intel agencies, and his ministry of defense: They consider that Israel may be a de facto enemy of the Russian Federation, allied with Ukraine, the US and NATO.

Follow the money

Tel Aviv has been extremely cautious not to frontally antagonize Russia in Ukraine, and this may be a direct consequence of the notoriously cordial relations between Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  

Yet way more consequential than Israel on the geopolitical chessboard are Moscow’s evolving relations with Arab states today, especially OPEC+ partner Saudi Arabia which has helped thwart western efforts to control oil prices.

Also highly central to Russia’s regional policymaking is its strategic partnership with Iran, which has reaped dividends in Syria and the Caucasus, and which helps contain US expansionism. Finally, Moscow’s complex, multi-layered, back-and-forth with Ankara is crucial to Russian economic and geopolitical ambitions in Eurasia.  

All three West Asian powers are Muslim-majority states, important affiliations for a multipolar Russia that hosts its own sizable Muslim population.

And for these three regional actors, without distinction, the current collective punishment of Gaza transgresses any possible red line.     

Israel is also not that significant anymore in Moscow’s financial considerations. Since the 1990s, immense quantities of Russian funds have been transiting to Israel, but now, a substantial portion is returning right back to Russia. 

DJ, Putin and netanyahu once had a lot of contact...Russia/BRICS+ now is "repositioning" itself...Israel can be relevant in Eur-Asian integration but has to take a "constructive role" in West Asia and talk peace...NOT war...

In Ukraine zelensky is pushing for an offensive trying to still keep western support..One problem he may face is hamas may have weapons meant for Ukraine...Like in Ukraine also -now inside Israel- western weapons do not the miracle job they were supposed to do...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merkava[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merkava ...Israel may have already lost TEN !!! of these tanks...and the major fighting still has to start...

An Israeli invasion of Gaza may see very likely tens-of-thousends Israeli fighters killed...It also would start a war with Hizbollah in "the north" -maybe not only from Lebanon but also Syria...Even without Syria/Iran getting directly involved Hizbollah missiles and attacks, West Bank uprising, will destroy Israel...

------------

So far the outcome of biden confrontation politics may have resulted in possibly 500,000 Ukraine deaths...now Israel may face destruction... We need diplomacy NOT war !

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, Hal Turner may not always do a good job however;

[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/idf-general-reveals-hideous-truth-we-have-lost-the-ability-to-field-an-effective-army[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/idf-general-reveals-hideous-truth-we-have-lost-the-ability-to-field-an-effective-army ;

In his view, Israel’s ground forces are not ready for war. The warning follows a series of polls showing that a large portion of Israeli citizens have lost faith in their country’s future. This was particularly evident over the last year, when the people were divided over political and judicial issues.

“In my role as general, I have visited more than 1,400 units and spoken to tens of thousands of commanders and soldiers, three to four times a week, four hours in each unit. I know the army on the ground better than anyone in the Israel Defense Forces,” Brick said years ago. “I have seen soldiers who do not take care of their weapons before leaving the base. No army in the world behaves like this. The soldiers carry their smartphones with them everywhere. Commands are sent via WhatsApp groups. These phones are being tracked by the enemy.”

Not only that, but commands are said to have been sent via email and then deleted, meaning no follow-up action is possible. “Our system has lost all control. Have we gone crazy? I cannot sleep at night. Our ground forces and armored corps are not ready for war,” Brick continually warned.

“What I present to you here is something you will not hear from the top IDF officials. Not only do many of the commanders not know anything, but even those who do know are afraid to speak out lest they be punished,” he wrote, calling on members of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee to speak to the rank-and-file soldiers and address the issue. “Let them show you what is going on, share with them their problems and difficulties. It will not be the division, brigade, and battalion commanders from whom you will learn about the reality that exists in the field. You should learn it from those for whom it is the routine of their life… Their statements are the truth.”

Israel’s entire security apparatus has failed and relied too heavily on technology, with an unhealthy dash of arrogance. But as is typically the case, those who don’t go with the flow and call out the glaring problems are dismissed as lunatics, like General Brick, who saw the danger before anyone else.  He seems to have been ignored.

May explain the crisis Israel -and NATO- now faces...

You can NOT fight a war with the air force, navy, artillery and high tech as the only tools. The hamas mass murder on october 7 was possible because Israel security failed...

[url]https://www.euractiv.com/section/global-europe/news/eu-staff-criticise-von-der-leyen-over-israel-stance/[/url] or https://www.euractiv.com/section/global-europe/news/eu-staff-criticise-von-der-leyen-over-israel-stance/ ;

“We, a group of EU Commission and other EU institutions’ staff solemnly condemn on personal grounds the terrorist attacks perpetrated by Hamas against helpless civilians (…). We equally strongly condemn the disproportionate reaction by the Israeli government against the 2.3 million Palestinian civilians trapped in the Gaza Strip”, they write.

“Precisely because of these atrocities, we are surprised by the stance the European Commission has taken – and even other EU institutions – promoting what has been described in the press as European cacophony,” the letter reads.

They also write that they are concerned about “the seeming indifference demonstrated over the past few days by our institution toward the ongoing massacre of civilians in the Gaza Strip, in disregard for human rights and international humanitarian law”.

Earlier last week, the Commission had to backtrack on its early announcement by Neighbourhood Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi that it would cut “all aid” to Palestinians following widespread criticism from other EU institutions and divisions within the EU executive.

Some EU officials and member states also criticised von der Leyen, who visited Israel last Friday (13 October), for not declaring that the EU expects Israel to abide by international humanitarian law in its response to the attack, as other EU leaders did.

DJ, You can NOT call cutting of water, electricity by Israel self defence, when Russia does the same it is "terrorism"...Western "morality" seems to see US wars in Iraq, Syria as "good wars"...Russia stopping NATO moving east is "agression of Russia"....

Update on the conflict in the Middle East for October 22, 2023 (Sunday) 

- Even before Israel’s ground operation begins, it is requesting scarce artillery ammunition from the US who is diverting it from Ukraine; 

- Israeli ground operations in 2006 against Lebanon and 2008-2009 and 2014 in Gaza provide possible insight into the limits of Israeli military power ahead of a potential ground incursion into Gaza now; 

- Israel may be able to occupy northern Gaza but will push the limits of military power, its logistical support both domestically and via the US, as well as risk political stability within Israeli society; 

DJ, Most "modern western countries" are NOT ready for a real war...NATO did destroy Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan...most of it long distance...resulting in chaos...My view; Israel is NOT ready for a major war that will become a two front war if the IDF invades Gaza.

A 33-year-old Dutch woman has been killed in an explosion in Gaza, the foreign affairs ministry confirmed on Sunday.

Islam al-Ashqar was visiting relatives at the Nusairat refugee camp in central Gaza and was one of 22 Dutch nationals the ministry was trying to help leave, broadcaster NOS said.

According to news agency AP, Israel bombed the local evening market in the camp on Saturday night but it is unclear as yet if Al-Ashqar was killed in that blast

DJ, The "west" is unwilling to call a genocide a genocide-again. Ukraine killing over 14,000 Russian speakers in between 2014-2022, now Israel murdering thousends of Palestinians...

Western "politics"  from hiding pandemics, lies on climate collapse to ignoring genocide...

Neocons cannot be stopped, they will get war

DJ, describing a feeling prior to the US attack on Iraq in 2003...In 2023 the US-with still support from the UK and some EU countries-are preparing to "attack an axis of evil"...

This time however-US "democrats anti Russia, republicans anti-China-a compromise has been made...The US is pushing for war with BOTH Russia AND China...

Of course it is a total insane idea...however the war in/for Ukraine could and should have been avoided, a crisis in this form in the Middle East also only is getting the "west" more isolated...

------------

My view; US/NATO forces may be used "to stop Iran" in Lebanon, Syria so Israel can "kick out Palestinians" from Gaza...

Totally insane...It will bring Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE (all three new BRICS members) Türkiye even Jordan closer to Iran...

--------------

Does this "west" have the means for major global war ? NO !!! It will have to fall back to nuclear weapons within days of multi front war... It is OUT OFF shells/grenades, ammo, even trained soldiers...Fuel/logistics soon will get very problematic...

Still it does not stop "crazy joe" and "his gang"...The Duran mentioned a claim Atacms-US weapons were used in a major attack against Russia in Ukraine...and failed...But yet another sign of the US-biden-pushing for more war...

De-dollar-ization, further limiting energy export to the west, dumping US bonds, all increase US/western inflation...But it still may not be enough to push the US "elite" to realizing the destructive crazyness they are doing...

MULTIPOLARITY AT WORK So Israel has been bombing the CIVILIAN airports of Damascus and Aleppo. With total impunity. Not a peep by the "rules-based" vassals. Israeli "logic": Iran may send weapons to Syria, and beyond, using these airports. 

DJ, Iran now could be using the Russian military base in Syria-with very high air defense...Still Israel may shoot down Iran planes over Syria " in self defense"...Israel killed over 5,000 Palestinians in Gaza, over 100 on the West Bank " in self defense"...western "values" are lies...

Update(1845ET): Russia has weighed in strongly against the additional US warships recently sent by the Pentagon to the Middle East region, saying this heightened US presence only serves as a risk of "escalation" of the conflict in Gaza.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday during a meeting Tehran that "the more a state takes this kind of proactive measures, the greater the risk and the danger of an escalation of the conflict". He called out Washington as "already among the countries intervening the most" since the October 7 Hamas terror attack. 

The same day, the Pentagon said it believes Iran-backed groups in the region are planning to ramp up attacks on US forces in the region. This came amid continuing sporadic drone and missile strikes against US bases in Syria and Iraq.

DJ, The Duran does not see any sign/room left for diplomacy...The US "only makes deals to break deals"....Outcome is if the US wants war it may get a "bloody nose"...as a sort of last warning...

I did write a story about growing political crises in the "west"...but internet of this site failed...

So in short for Gaza/Middle East-now with also mass murders by Israel (settlers) in the West Bank;

-NATO calls these war crimes "self defense"

-Israel is trying to pull NATO into a war with Iran by attacking (Iran)targets in Syria/Lebanon

-Türkiye-Iran-Arab States (TIA) may decide to follow one strategy

DJ-TIA could go for another oil-boycot of the west-no longer selling oil/gas to countries that support Israel

TIA also could end US bases/close air space for NATO air force

TIA needs Russian and Chinese supplies when they move into a war with Israel/NATO

-----------

In Europe, UK, US both political and economic crises worsen...US houses need a yearly income of 114,000 US$ with the average US income 75,000 US$...in most of Europe the (neo-liberal) politics also created a major housing problem...

[url]https://www.dw.com/en/wagenknecht-a-far-left-challenge-to-germanys-far-right-afd/a-66470345[/url] or https://www.dw.com/en/wagenknecht-a-far-left-challenge-to-germanys-far-right-afd/a-66470345Many analysts have speculated that Wagenknecht's unique political position — left-wing on economic issues, but closer to the far-right on issues like immigration and gender diversity — could pose a threat to the recently surging AfD.

In Ukraine the pro-NATO forces are at breaking point. [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R-37_(missile)#Design[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R-37_(missile)#Design is destroying the Ukraine (western made) air force...also western F16's may have no chance...

Russia may be preparing its position in Syria. If need be Russian radar/weapons cover ALL of the Middle East. US carrier groups in the eastern mediterranean and Red Sea may be of little use when countries in the region close the sky/sea...

BRICS+ is now pushed to become not only the major economic but also military bloc...The big question is do the 8 to 10 leading US political figures still have any contact with reality...Or do they think this is 1941 in stead of 2023 ? 

One crazy US idea is Saudi Arabia did join BRICS to get US nuclear weapons...simply ignoring Asia now is THE major global economy...

There is an "idea" the US is still the axis/center of the globe...Both Europe and the UK may have no other option left than to break with this US...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, 

-The goal of a groundwar in Gaza;

For Israel it would get NATO to fight Iran....

Did Israeli security "fail by order" to let october 7 Hamas-terror act happen ? A sort of 9-11 for Israel-to "open doors to conflicts" the west was unwilling to fight ?

Is the "game" of claiming "Hamas = IS" a netanyahu made excuse to kill Palestinians by the thousends ? 

-----------------

The US has a "BRICS+-problem". In fact BRICS+ is the most powerfull organization in the world...

The provoked war in Ukraine (from 2014-22 Ukraine killed over 14,000 Russian speakers, after the Munich security conference december 2021 zelensky claimed not only Ukraine would join NATO...it also would get nuclear weapons...If that is NOT provocation than what is ????) failed to break up BRICS or -even- Russia...

Sanctions did not break Russia, blowing up Nordstream (US job) further damaged the west...Russia managed to shift its trade even more to Asian markets..(the 2014 western sanctions did damage to fruits-trade from NL to Russia...Russia grew more fruits itself and imported more from Türkiye, Iran...)

--------------------

So will a "ground war in Gaza" start a NATO-BRICS+ open war ? 

NO !!! But it may see further limits of energy trade with the west...pushing up energy prices/inflation...

It may see West Asia/North Africa closing US/NATO bases

It may even bring the closure of airspace for western airlines for much more countries...Western airlines are not allowed over Russia...If these airlines -also facing higher energy costs, supply problems-now also are no longer allowed over much of West Asia, Africa (Latin America ?) these airlines can "jump"from North America to Europe and back...

BRICS+ "economic weapons" can do much more damage than a lot of "old fashioned" weapons...De-$-ization can push the US into a major financial crisis...the US has to deal with its own massive debts...Maybe the "EU-puppet leaders" want to "buy" US-debts and combine it with "Ukraine in the EU by 2030"...In fact blowing up the financial backbone of the EU...bankrupting it...

---------------

If the US wants war they have to start war...

Russia-Iran-China are ready for it...North Korea, Belarus, Syria, Iraq a.o. also are prepared..."Make trade not war" is the BRICS+ motto by now...The US/NATO need war...

BRICS+ may be trying to take away any economic basis for NATO to be able to fight a war...Of course China will not export goods to NATO that enable NATO to fight a war with China...

One of the BRICS+ idea's is to invest in countries the west kept poor...So those countries do no longer export coffee-beans at low prices but ready-to-use coffee at high prices..No longer raw materials but finished products and profits staying inside the country...

The days France could steal uranium and gold from Niger are over...The western neo-colonialism kept the rest of the world in (extreme) poverty...

------------------

Democracy and human rights go hand-in-hand...

It is the west that "played" with both...If you are black and born in Africa you have to stay poor and inside Africa...If you speak Spanish you are a "Latino"....NOT welcome -legally-in the US...

East Europeans do the jobs no "normal person" in the EU/UK wants to do...high risk-low pay...If the job is over the housing is gone...

HCW-ers shortage because of Long CoViD, high risk-bad hours-low pay ? We "import HCW-ers ! 

The cynicism "our leaders" demonstrate is beyond borders...

Russian "terror" is "Israeli right of self defense"....double standards and NO morality...

--------------

The reason this "disinformation" is not yet censored is because hardly anyone reads it..."Our leaders" know the truth...censorship a new -widespread- normal...

"Social media" and MSM both in the hands of a war-industry means "government is not cesoring"...blame the companies...censorship outsourced...

As long as "the masses" buy this kind of insanity "1984 XL" only will get worse...George Orwell would be shocked...

---------

DJ-I was wrong in february 2022. I did not think Russia would move into Ukraine-they had other means to put pressure on their view (energy, air space/transport). 

So I may be wrong again today...Maybe Iran, Russia, China will start an(other) "military action/war"....The Duran (a.o.) mentioned US neo-cons only may wake up if they get a "bloody nose"...

US bases in Syria, Iraq may become targets...no air defense may be able to deal with blockades denying logistics to those US/NATO bases...With military action goal destroying logistics and supplies to make those US/NATO positions impossible...

Another escalation may be in Yemen Houthi's "by accident" blowing up a US (or UK) major navy ship...A small missile/drone itself may not be able to do much damage...but it can explode ammo-storage/fuel if it can reach such an area...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Updated: OCTOBER 6, 2023 15:15

Four Israeli children from the same kindergarten in Tel Aviv have been confirmed to be infected with measles, the Health Ministry said Friday.

A fifth child is suspected of being infected but has not been confirmed as of yet...

-

OCTOBER 26, 2023 11:30

A total of nine cases of measles cases were discovered in Tel Aviv last month, according to the Health Ministry, whose epidemiologists found a connection among all of them. Although those infected were considered mild cases with a rash and fever, the virus is very contagious and may lead to severe and even life-threatening complications.

The ministry continues to carry out an epidemiological investigation and to look for those who were in contact with the sick patients to check whether they had received the protective vaccine against the disease...

DJ ;[url]https://flutrackers.com/forum/forum/middle-east/all-other-diseases-aa/980825-gaza-sloppy-cnn-reports-outbreak-of-smallpox-in-gaza-has-to-be-an-error-right-probably-chickenpox-october-23-2023#post980831[/url] or https://flutrackers.com/forum/forum/middle-east/all-other-diseases-aa/980825-gaza-sloppy-cnn-reports-outbreak-of-smallpox-in-gaza-has-to-be-an-error-right-probably-chickenpox-october-23-2023#post980831 latest;


Come on CNN - get with it. Don't just casually report a smallpox outbreak in Gaza with no details. Get an editor who knows something about infectious diseases to take a look at your copy BEFORE it goes out on the wires.

We are going to be watching this, however.

May indicate how "media" are doing a bad job...

--------------

The "rest" of the world may no longer accept an Israeli mass murder in Gaza, settlers killing Palestinians on the West Bank. The 'west" may still talk to netanyahu and his extremists...Some of the Israeli cabinet members live in  (West Bank) settlements seen as illegal by the UN....

Part of the netanyahu agenda may be to "make Israel Jewish again"...With also annexation -in fact- of East Jerusalem/West Bank...

Another part of netanyahu long term strategy was to get "the west" to fight Iran...








And for those saying 'there's no intent', I suggest you listen to the numerous interviews given by Israeli officials stating 'there are no innocent civilians', calling them 'animals', and calling for "A Nakba that will overshadow the Nakba of 1948"...

DJ, "the west" AGAIN making a genocide/ehtnic cleansing possible...Supplying the means for it...

A western puppet regime in Ukraine killed over 14,000 Russian speakers between 2014 and 2022...

At present Israel did kill close to 8,000 Palestinians in just over 3 weeks...

-------

It looks like Iran may have organized "the rest" of the world to stop another western major crime...








A common tactic in genocide denial is to try to dispute numbers. The strategy is to legitimize the genocide by delegitimizing the victims and questioning their very existence.

DJ..US attacking "Iran" targets legally in Syria and Iraq to "defend" US bases in Syria and Iraq against any international law...and than claim "it has nothing to do with the Israeli mass murder" may indicate the level of western insanity...

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoDzPIitIqM[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoDzPIitIqM ;

Judge Nap:  Do you think that President Biden is under pressure from the globalists and neocons around him to take this as an opportunity, once and for all, to destroy the regime and its nuclear capability in Tehran? Alastair Crooke: I think so, yes. I think there's pressure. I'm not saying he's succumbed to it. I'm not saying it will prevail, but you have to look at it from the other end of the telescope too. In the region, people look at this huge build-up and they see, is America preparing for World War III?

A quote; crazy joe biden is more afraid of leaking weak than of escalation....

To end this update as positive as I can;

The "rest" of the world -by now- has that many ways of putting pressure on the west -without a major war- maybe we can avoid such major war...

-Energy boycot of the west

-No Fly zone over the rest for western airlines

-No more travel from the west to the rest...

We live in "interesting times"...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Israel announces ground operations in the Gaza Strip starting tonight

DJ, I expect very major escalation now is starting...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/oil-gold-dip-after-gaza-ceasefire-headlines[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/oil-gold-dip-after-gaza-ceasefire-headlines ;

Update(1340ET)Over the last hour there have been widespread reports that communications to the Gaza have been externally cut, and minutes ago Israel's military (IDF) spokesman has confirmed that ground forces are expanding their operations tonight, and simultaneously Gazans are being told to immediately evacuate the north and go to the south of the Strip. "Ground forces are expanding the ground activity this evening," the IDF affirmed. Below is more of the statement from military spox, Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari

“The Air Force is striking underground targets very significantly,” he says, adding that ground forces will “expand” their activity tonight.

For the last two days, IDF infantry forces and tanks have conducted limited raids into the Gaza Strip. Hagari says the IDF will continue to strike Gaza City and surrounding areas in northern Gaza, and renews his call for Palestinians to evacuate to the Strip’s south.

“We are prepared to defend in all arenas. We are acting in order to protect the security interests of the State of Israel,” he says.

Maybe [url]https://israelpalestine.liveuamap.com/[/url] or https://israelpalestine.liveuamap.com/ could be of use...Lots of "channels" will give info from many sides...

Replying to 
#Israel bombs #Gaza from air, sea and land NOW. It prepares for the ground battle and the "Battle of the Tunnels."

and

The Al-Qassam resistance is bombing Tel Aviv in the midst of an intensive bombardment. This means that the resistance is in control and is inflicting casualties on the Israelis. Al-Qassam has other means of communication independent of the #Israeli system.

DJ, no doubt on many other places "actions" may be prepared...IF Israel NOW is starting a major ground operation in Gaza all kindsa of "plans" may start...(around the globe...).

-Israeli forces moved into northern Gaza from three points with lots of tanks/soldiers

-Palestinian defense did -very likely- manage to destroy a lot of the Israeli forces

-Yemen fired missiles (again) at Eilat, Palestine mobilization on West Bank, Syrian shelling over Golan Heights

-HT ???? US Delta force involved in Gaza (on the Israeli side )....

---------------

Today there will be widespread protests around the globe. Jewish organizations "not in my name" distance themselves from netanyahu and his extremist clan...

[url]https://conquer-and-divide.btselem.org/map-en.html[/url] or https://conquer-and-divide.btselem.org/map-en.html on the history of the conflict...In its basics; UK promised Jewish groups a country in what then still was part of the Ottoman Empire -[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balfour_Declaration[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balfour_Declaration 1917.

Zionist groups did try to get a country for Jews since the 1890"s [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zionism[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zionism  however Palestinians also did/do live in the Middle East region...

Religious aspects (christian, Jewish) claiming "god" did "give" the land to "the Jews"...One of the -present day- problems is Rabbi's decide who is a "Jew"...

Another point is a "Jewish State"...can you have such and avoid "apartheid" non-Jews becoming second class citizens...

DJ-My view;

-Israel can play a constructive role in West Asia...however the "Jewish State" is a problem.

-A two state Israel/Palestine solution may work..

-The present "Palestine" does NOT work ! Gaza-Negev-West Bank may have better perspectives...

-The "west" used Israel as a modern crusader-state [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Jerusalem[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Jerusalem to get oil/gas rich region under its control...

There are ways out of this conflict-however we are now sinking deeper in a very dangerous swamp. The "west" failed to "correct" Israel. Its far right Jewish extremists want Gaza/West Bank as part of a Jews-only Israel...That is a disaster...

----------

Risks of escalation...

Netanyahu claims Iran is working on nuclear weapons...Israel itself may not have enough means to end any Iranian nuclear programm. Iran claims it does NOT want nuclear weapons (for religious reasons). Still Netanyahu has been pushing for western/US help to "destroy Iran" (nuclear programm)...

Netanyahu hoped Saudi Arabia could help Israel against Iran...China managed to get Saudi Arabia and Iran working together-both are part of BRICS+ per 2024...So a "regional ally" for Netanyahu switched sides...

Iran is a major North-South link between Russia and India...for China Iran is part of a route west...Russia, China will NOT accept ANY western attack on Iran...very likely India may be in the same position...

Türkiye-Iran-Pakistan is the West Asia link between India, China and Europe...so also Türkiye and Pakistan can not accept any attack on Iran...

Iran is a major Islamic state...the west did break also an "Iran-deal" (mase under Obama...therefore trump had to break it...)..EU seems to be taken over by the US...

-Regional escalation; Very likely-Hezbollah from Lebanon and Syria...West Bank intifada/uprising...The Israeli army may have a major job in Gaza and may need to limit conflict-for now-in the north of Israel

-MENA escalation Middle East North Africa; 

DJ Egypt may end diplomatic relations...However starting a major war may destabilize (and radicalize) Egypt. 

Syria may give "fighters" room to do "their thing" ...Syria did have decades of non-violence on the Golan/Israeli border...Israel supported "moderate terrorists" in the NATO made "civil"war..

Lebanon also may leave the fighting to "militia"...

Russia is "in control" in most of Syria and seems able to "limit" (or not) Iran...

So...Israeli/NATO actions can decide if that MENA powder keg explodes...Israel/US attacking Russian positions in Syria could result in Russia blowing up both the planes and "bases" (even if it would be a US/UK carrier)...

World War Three ????

It was biden his choice to provoke Russia with Ukraine...zelensky 2021 december claiming Ukraine;

- would get into NATO

- would get nuclear weapons (after the fall of the Soviet Union Soviet nuclear weapons became Russian nuclear weapons..NEVER were Ukrainian..)

- would start an operation against Russian-speakers in Eastern Ukraine...

All three the ideas were agreed upon with biden...He wanted to punish Russia for "trump becoming president"...

BRICS+ soon could cover over half the global GDP...Per 2024 BRICS+ is 48% of global population, 43% of global oil...US$ based on debt is sinking...NO longer linked to oil/gas/energy

So "western domination" would end after 500 years...

DJ-The Ukraine war was avoidable, the present crisis in the Middle East can be solved...point is "the west" believes to be "superior"...If they do not give up that idea we are moving into all out war...In my view the "west/NATO" is the problem...

However under pressure NATO may break up...Türkiye may decide "this NATO" is an anti-Islam "club"...Poland already did see thousends of Polish "volunteers" dying in Ukraine... Ukraine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya have become NATO made disasters...

Romania, Bulgaria may decide the upcoming war is NOT their war...Orthodox Greece may see links with Serbia...also go for neutrality...

The present "governments" in NL, UK, France, Germany are hated by large groups of the population...Elections may NOT change the break-up of Government-Citizen relations...

So the west may become much more authoritarian...more censorship, "anti terrorism" laws for climate protests etc...only making matters worse...

DJ-Under pandemic rules governments failed in communication resulting in lots of protests...Somehow "politics" only worsened since then...became a closed cult-like group outside reality...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

We need a political perspective, and this is challenging because the two-state solution has been removed from the Israeli political and diplomatic program. Israel needs to understand that for a country with a territory of 20,000 square kilometers, a population of 9 million inhabitants, facing 1.5 billion people... Peoples have never forgotten that the Palestinian cause and the injustice done to the Palestinians was a significant source of mobilization. We must consider this situation, and I believe it is essential to help Israel, to guide... some say impose, but I think it's better to convince, to move in this direction. The challenge is that there is no interlocutor today, neither on the Israeli side nor the Palestinian side. We need to bring out interlocutors.

DJ, In Gaza Israel is trying to destroy the underground defensive infrastructure...tunnels, bunkers, storage...

The Israeli claim Hamas/other groups are using Palestinians as human shields is not very strong-with 2,3 million people in a stretch of land 40 kilometer by 5 kilometer...So Israel decided to first destroy over 100,000 houses on top of the underground infrastructure-killing by now very likely close to 10,000 Palestinians...

YES Hamas is keeping several hundreds Israeli hostage as human shield...Israel did arrest several hundreds of Palestinians a.o. on the West Bank -in fact also using them as human shield...

-------

netanyahu claimed "phase two" of the Gaza "operation" did start. However he denied/lied on this phase two being a ground war on a larger scale...

DJ-my view-netanyahu and his extremists government want to be able to deny the ground attack became a disaster...There are several "stories" on where Israel moved into Gaza. Some indications in the north of Gaza Israel did see very severe losses...

If Iran did provide Russia with drones for the Ukraine war than Iran will have offered Palestinians also "modern weapons". In Ukraine those weapons need to be long distance...in Gaza it is short distance, urban warfare...

----------------

Another major shift is netanyahu NOT being supported by lots of people;

-Inside Israel there are lots of questions on how october 7 could have happened. How Hamas was able to break through the -supposedly- "perfect" border checks...How did para-gliders -on this scale- were able to fly into Israel ? 

-Also stories of Israeli forces/civilians (?) responsible for also lots of Israeli deaths during that Hamas attack...

-A third major point is-does netanyahu want to push for war with Iran ? 

Lots of Israeli's fear netanyahu may be the end of Israel...

-Outside Israel lots of Jewish groups are fed up with netanyahu...They do NOT agree with the Israeli mass murder in Gaza...

-Also lots of people -once supportive of Israel- are now disgusted by netanyahu bloodthirst...

Another aspect is Israel now "opening" a new list of enemies. Türkiye, Egypt, Saudi Arabia all want to show themselves as leaders of "the Islamic world"...Iran already was in a "covert war" with Israel...But Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia may now become allied against Israel...

The US/biden may have given Israel "a lot of support" ...but the US may find itself now in an impossible position...A lot of the US/western population does NOT support more wars...

Here in NL "our" neo-liberal PM mark rutte is trying to become the next secretary general of NATO...He "showed himself to be a very good friend of Israel" hugging netanyahu last week...

NATO may be even get more split; 

-Türkiye could even join military action against Israel...

-SE Europe does not want yet another war on the EurAsian border...their economy is getting destroyed..

-UK, Germany, France "government" tried to forbid pro-Palestine demonstrations-but the support for those demonstrations is massive...

--------------

From a military perspictive;

-The EU long term idea was to avoid wars...Via NATO Europe/UK played a limited role in Middle East/North Africa (MENA) wars...

-US has a stronger military...but the Ukraine war did push the US over its limits...The US turned out NOT to be able to fight long wars with strong enemies...Russia did beat NATO in Ukraine by production...More weapons, logistics/language in Russian favour...

-Israel can NOT fight a major war without foreign help...The EU/UK can NOT provide that help...and very likely-even if the US would "dump" Ukraine the US could NOT provide enough military aid...

-The "west" now finds itself even more isolated from the "rest" of the world. 

DJ-Russia did close its airspace for western airlines...This did put western airtransport to East Asia in a bad position...If more countries close their airspace it could see US-UK-EU airlines getting marginalized..

Energy, raw materials have fallen into BRICS+ hands and are moving high speed that direction...

Western "debt based" currencies now face a crisis unimaginable...It will NOT go slow...US$, Euro, UK-pound could see their value drop to 5-10% of the 2020 value...Not only imported goods but also food, logistics, will see a price explosion...

The outcome of western insane foreign policy may make the "west" a new "third world" with starvation around the corner...Climate change, aging, also worsening the perspectives...

Russia may see more agriculture production due to climate change...Most of Asia has a relative young population...on top of lots of energy/raw materials...China has a larger production capacity than the EU-UK-and US combined...

---------

Nuclear option or talks ? That is the choice "western leaders" have to make...

In a "conventional war" the west can NOT beat BRICS+/the rest...The "wise thing" to do would mean acceptance of a multi polar globe...The problem is we do not have many wise leaders...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

I have seen some disgusting tweets about Jews recently. You're not in solidarity with Palestinians when you approve of the Holocaust. Genocide is genocide. When you approve of one genocide, you approve of them all. If you approve of genocide, your values align with the IDF.

DJ, In a recent poll 60-65% of Israeli's -at that moment- agreed with Israeli bombing of Gaza, 20-25% disagreed. Blame netanyahu and his gang for the present genocide...but also blame biden, rutte, sunak, macron, schultz for their "solidarity"...

[url]https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2023/10/28/713600/Raeisi-aljazeera-Israel-ground-invasion-Operation-al-Aqsa-Storm%E2%80%99[/url] or https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2023/10/28/713600/Raeisi-aljazeera-Israel-ground-invasion-Operation-al-Aqsa-Storm%E2%80%99 ;

During his interview, Iran's president said, “After Operation al-Aqsa Storm [was launched by Palestinian resistance groups], the Zionist regime has not been able to score any real victory, and this is a strategic failure [for Israel].”

He added, “The defeat that the Zionist regime suffered last night in its ground invasion of Gaza was the second victory [for Palestinians] following [the launch of] Operation al-Aqsa Storm.”

"Zionist regime’s crimes have crossed the red lines, which may force everyone to take action," Iran's president said.

DJ, like Erdogan Iran does see "Hamas-fighters" as "freedom fighters...

[url]https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2023/10/29/713616/attacks-US-bases-Syria-[/url] or https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2023/10/29/713616/attacks-US-bases-Syria- ;

Simultaneous attacks have targeted three military bases housing US occupation forces in Syria.

Citing sources, Lebanon’s Al Mayadeen TV channel reported that the US base in al-Omar oil field, east of Syria’s Dayr al-Zawr Province, came under shelling on Saturday night.

The raid, involving ground-to-ground weapons, caused explosions inside the facility, the report said, adding that the blasts were heard in surrounding areas.

Harab Cir bases in Syria’s al-Hasakah Provinces also came under a similar attack.

Meanwhile, drones of an unknown origin targeted the al-Tanf base in Syria’s Homs Province, near the Jordanian border.

There have been no reports of casualties or damage so far.

On Friday, a loud explosion was heard at the base that houses US troops in the Conoco gas field in Dayr al-Zawr.

DJ, the Gaza-genocide is a PR disaster for Israel...A realistic number of Palestinians killed since october 7 may by now be close to 10,000...

Another outcome is Türkiye, Iran, Syria, Iraq may work more closely to kick out US occupation forces stealing oil and gas...Both the Kurds and Jordan may now decide they can no longer support the US...

Israeli air strikes hit close to al-Quds Hospital

Reporting from Gaza

I live close to the al-Quds Hospital so the bombardment around it were pretty loud.

Because the kind of bombardments that are being conducted – air strikes or tank shells – are very powerful, they have an impact not just their targets but also their surrounding areas.

The hospital has not been directly hit, but areas around it have been targeted. This has caused a great amount of fear among patients.

The director of the hospital said they will not evacuate because doing so could result in death of patients, including the premature babies in incubators, and of those in the ICU unit. All of them, plus those taking shelter, total around 14,000 people.

DJ, western propaganda blaming Palestinian missiles for a lot of Palestinians being killed...The total lack of any morals by "western leaders" is becoming disgusting...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/erdogan-vows-get-israel-branded-war-criminal-state-blames-west-gaza-massacre[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/erdogan-vows-get-israel-branded-war-criminal-state-blames-west-gaza-massacre ;

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan raged against Israel in a speech given before a pro-Palestinian rally on Saturday in Istanbul. He said he is preparing to introduce Israel as a "war criminal" on a world stage, at a moment the debate over Gaza continues heating up at the United Nations. 

Erdogan said: "Israel, we will also declare you as a war criminal to the world, we are preparing for it, and we will introduce Israel to the world as a war criminal," according to a state broadcaster. Footage of the event shows that the turnout was huge, in the hundreds of thousands or possibly over 100,000 people gathered in the capital.

DJ, how long will Türkiye allow US bases, NATO military on their soil when NATO is supporting the Israeli genocide ? 

Plane loads of weapons meant for Ukraine now go to Israel...without US/NATO support Israel would simply NOT be able to kill thousends of Palestinians...

Very likely US satellite intel on Gaza bunkers is used by the Israeli war machine...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/technology/hamass-october-7-attack-discourse-age-artificial-intelligence[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/technology/hamass-october-7-attack-discourse-age-artificial-intelligence

In a significant shift from its traditional tactics, Israel has changed its approach to ground invasions. Instead of its usual strategy, Israel has now launched a series of ground operations against the Gaza Strip, both on land and at sea. A bombardment of unprecedented intensity has preceded this change. Despite urgent calls from 120 nations in the Security Council for an immediate ceasefire, Israel has maintained its aggressive stance.

However, the military gains for Israel from these actions appear minimal. The main result has been widespread devastation, with over 7,500 civilians reported dead, including a staggering 4,800 women and children. In the midst of this chaos, however, the Palestinian resistance has not been caught unprepared. Sources within the ‘Axis of Resistance’ indicate that the Palestinians had anticipated and prepared for the Israeli onslaught.

DJ, One has to question the possibility of a "military answer" to Hamas...Even if Israel would kill ALL Gaza Palestinians the present Israeli violence only worsens Arab/Islamic radicalism...

For every Hamas member killed -in this mass murder- Israel may be creating a few new "Hamas like" radical...Israel is destroying itself !

There's ALWAYS a crucial Pipelineistan angle. As relevant as Israel aiming to steal the natural gas reserves offshore Gaza to become a major exporter, Israel can be easily deprived of at least 40% of its oil if The Sultan cuts off the tanker transport link from the BTC pipeline…

DJ, Oil/gas on the Gaza coast may be part of the reason for Israel (and US) agression...








The  report of evacuation threats to Al-Quds hospital in Gaza is deeply concerning. We reiterate - it’s impossible to evacuate hospitals full of patients without endangering their lives. Under International Humanitarian Law, healthcare must always be protected.

DJ, If Russia bombs an empty hospital on an Ukraine frontline "western war-industry owned media" run out of words...The same "presstitutes" stay silent when US/NATO bombs are dropped on Gaza, Syrian, Iraqi hospitals....

-------------------

Will there be a "TIA" intervention ? 

Türkiye, Iran, Arab world all agree this Gaza mass murder must be stopped. 

Very likely there are talks with other parties;

-Russia is a major player in the region-may still be able to talk with Israel

-China, India also may be willing to try diplomacy....

-The Islamic World may be "thinking twice" on how to react to yet another western mass murder on Muslims....

-Hizbollah so far did show limited activity from Lebanon...for Israel this may be BAD NEWS !!!

DJ-My view, "TIA" is working on plans to stop Israel/west killing Palestinians...

-A first step may be an ultimatum-signed by a lot of countries...

-There now still is limited room for diplomacy...However if some western countries keep supporting Israel those western countries may be seen as Israeli allies...

-Russia could use electronic/cyber warfare...communications

-IF Israel does not stop/is forced to stop by its western "friends" we should expect further escalation..within days. 

-Türkiye, Iran, Egypt all have a major navy in the region. Also these countries do have an air force/missiles...maybe first used as a warning...

DJ-Very likely -at a certain point- BRICS+ and the Muslim world (including Indonesia, Pakistan, Malaysia-ASEAN/SCO) may decide to "enable"a group of frontline states to fight...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, People in Gaza are running out of food and water...Israel is claiming it did reopen watersupply but the bombing did destroy water supply lines inside Gaza...

Israel also "strongly demanding" the Gaza population north of the Gaza-wadi to move south...On what legal basis ? What legal basis is there a hospital has to move/kill their patients? 

Israel keeps claiming Hamas is using hospitals...very likely Hamas-members do get treatment in hospitals...This does NOT make them military targets...In a stretch of 5 by 40 kilometers-with a population of 2,3 million ANY Palestinian defense position is near civilians...That is what urban warfare is...Israel/western propaganda is claiming;

-Palestinian defense using human shields is non-sense

-A lot of Palestinians may get killed by Palestinian weapons-also is a lie; Israel is bombing/shelling Gaza now on a very high level for weeks...With Israeli ground forces moving in

[url]https://twitter.com/War_Mapper/status/1718415025050697876/photo/1[/url] or https://twitter.com/War_Mapper/status/1718415025050697876/photo/1 may give an indication on the parts of Gaza now under Israeli control...

DJ-The extremist netanyahu government is -in fact- calling Palestinians "sub-humans"...That use of words did see other mass murders like the holocaust...

NATO in general is still providing all kinds of aid to Israel. Without NATO help Israel would not be able to conduct this mass murder in Gaza and its terror campain on the West Bank. 

Since the US has most military means it is the US that has a major role for Israel. For now the US is sending in weapons, providing intel to Israel. 

The US also did and does provide Kiev with intel on targets inside the Russian speaking part of Ukraine. Ukraine is using cluster ammo, mining from the air, HIMARS against civilians in Donetsk city. 

Since at least 2001 NATO has to be seen as a terrorist organization...killing (a.o. by drones) millions of most Muslim civilians in West Asia and North Africa. The main goal is control over energy and gold, supply lines and keeping other countries out. 

---------------

Iran is ready for a large scale confrontation with "the west"...Syria, Iraq may be willing to work with Iran but they both need more support. 

Russia may be a "partner" in talking with Kurdish fighters in Syria, Iraq. The Kurds are also a "point of discussion" for Türkiye-still a NATO member. 

Intervention to stop the Israel/NATO mass murder in Gaza is complex. 

One scenario that is very likely-within days-is opening up a second front from Lebanon and Golan heights. A plan could be disrupting Israeli logistics and communications. So ports, roads inside Israel would be targets. Military storage, baracks etc. also would be a target. 

Israel has been attacking airports in Syria, Iran transports via Iraq into Syria. Also Hizbollah/other militia positions have seen Israeli and US attacks. 

The major intervention goal is to stop the Israeli genocide. If that intervention becomes a genocide on Israel it has failed....so it will need to concentrate on military Israeli (and if need be US/NATO) goals. 

Lots of missiles on civilian targets inside Israel may be counter productive.

-Wide public support for the limited military intervention has to be priority #1

-A wide "front" of countries supporting the intervention (if only in words)  also has to be a high priority. 

Türkiye may decide NOT to get involved military in an action to stop the Gaza-genocide. But it could distance itself from NATO and no longer allow US, UK to use Turkish bases/air/sea...

Russia may provide intel/advice and warnings/cover...The Russian Navy could show up to watch over US/UK/NATO ships in the area. 

DJ-So an intervention to stop Israel has to be well organized and pin-point on Israeli military means. 

-------------------

No doubt the netanyahu extremists try to push the US/NATO in a war with Iran...A lot of Jewish people both inside and outside Israel hate netanyahu...A full scale attack on also Israeli citizens would end up with more (western) support for netanyahu and his gang...

Inside NATO support for more war is dropping high speed. NATO is running out of a lot of (non-nuclear) weapons. NATO can NOT enable/fight two wars. in UKraine and Israel/Gaza/West Bank. 

One long term BRICS+ goal has to be breaking up NATO. 

DJ, My country-the Netherlands/NL-was neutral till may 10 1940. It was hitler that ended that neutrality...In my view the EU should be a "force of peace"-return to its post war ideals...

NATO was a US/UK tool against Russia since 1949. It did support all kinds of facist criminal leaders from Portugal, Greece to Chile, Argentina, Nicaragua etc. So present Ukraine and present Israel fall in line with the kind of leaders NATO should NOT be supporting if human rights and democracy were NATO priorities...

Again and again NATO does show to be a Neo-colonial Atlantic Terrorist Organization...defending oil, gas, pipelines and exploitation...The world would be a better place if this kind of NATO would go...

The post-war EU ideals were "never again war in Europe"...It did not stop European countries fighting all kind of (neo) colonial wars...However other countries did see the EU -once- as an example of how countries should work together for mutual benefit...It is a shame NATO did take over the EU...ended the peacefull ideals...

--------------

Western citizens can show they want "better politics/politicians"....The public sector is destroyed to fight endless wars killing millions while making the planet less safe...

The pandemic(s) show an urgent need for better public healthcare (NOT for profit !!!) better public schools, public housing, public infrastructure...

We need to end self-destruction via foreign wars...

Every bomb on Gaza is also "damaging western citizens"! Because "we pay that bomb" and that money is NOT invested in schools, care, roads...

We deserve better !

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

The US is in active talks with Israel and Egypt to establish "safe passage" corridors for civilians in Gaza to flee ongoing Israeli airstrikes, the White House said Wednesday amid an expected ground offensive in the besieged enclave.

"We're actively discussing this with our Israeli and our Egyptian counterparts, we support safe passions for civilians. Civilians are not to blame for what Hamas has done. They didn't do anything wrong," National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby told reporters at the White House.

"We are actively working on this with Egyptian and our Israeli counterparts. Civilians are protected under the laws of armed conflict, and they should be given every opportunity to avoid the fighting," he added.

This all was based on a plan originally developed by radical Zionist within the government of Israel:

Leaked: Israeli plan to ethnically cleanse GazaThe Cradle - Oct 29, 2023

Israeli culture magazine Mekovit published on 28 October a leaked document issued by Israel’s Ministry of Intelligence recommending the occupation of Gaza and total transfer of its 2.3 million inhabitants to Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

The document, issued on 13 October, identifies a plan to transfer all residents of the Gaza Strip to North Sinai as the preferred option among three alternatives regarding the future of the Palestinians in Gaza at the end of the current war between Israel and the Hamas-led Palestinian resistance.

The document recommends that Israel evacuate the Gazan population to Sinai during the war, establish tent cities and new cities in northern Sinai to accommodate the deported population, and then create a closed security zone stretching several kilometers inside Egypt. The deported Palestinians would not be allowed to return to any areas near the Israeli border.

Egypt of course rejected any such plans. As I had explained:

Netanyahoo's Strategic DilemmaMoon of Alabama - Oct 21, 2023

Israel, with the help of the U.S., has tried to push the population of Gaza into Egypt. From Egypt's standpoint that would be a humanitarian solution, at least as long as others pay for it. But it would cause a serious strategic problem. Resistance by Hamas and others against Israel would continue indefinitely, but Egypt would be held responsible for it. It can not and will not take on that burden.

Despite that logic the White House continued to proceed with its plan. Its request to Congress to finance the wars in the Ukraine and Gaza with up to $106 billion included these lines (pg 40):

Letter regarding critical national security funding needs for FY 2024 - White House - Oct 20, 2023

These resources would support displaced and conflict-affected civilians, including Palestinian refugees in Gaza and the West Bank, and to address potential needs of Gazans fleeing to neighboring countries. This would include food and non- food items, healthcare, emergency shelter support, water and sanitation assistance, and emergency protection. This would also include potential critical humanitarian infrastructure costs needed for the refugee population to provide access to basic, life-sustaining support. This crisis could well result in displacement across border and higher regional humanitarian needs, and funding may be used to meet evolving programming requirements outside of Gaza.

Russia had called out the plan for the nonsense it is:

Middle East and Central Asia. Lavrov on the interests of the USA and the West, parallels with UkraineBelta - Oct 28, 2023

“It is clear that such an approach is disastrous, because if the Gaza Strip is destroyed, if two million residents are driven out, as some politicians in Israel and abroad are implying, this will create a catastrophe that will last for many decades, if not centuries,” Sergey Lavrov noted.

Backed by Russia the Egyptian resistance against the plan continued. A phone call held yesterday finally buried it:

Sisi, Biden probe developments of Gaza escalation, reject displacement of PalestiniansAhram Online - Oct 29, 2023

During the call, El-Sisi reiterated Egypt’s firm rejection of policies that collectively punish and displace the Palestinian people.

-

This is another failure of the dimwit policies cooked up by National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and SecState Anthony Blinken as directed by their Zionist puppeteers.

I for one support all plans that would allow them to safely leave Washington DC. They can move to Antarctica or to wherever the climate is severe enough to cool their genocidal moods.

This month, the German television station, ARD (Consortium of Public Broadcasters in Germany), produced footage documenting the slave trade being conducted by the Islamic State (ISIS) through a liaison office in the province of Gaziantep (also known as Antep) in Turkey, near the border with Syria. In August 2014, Islamic State jihadists attacked Sinjar, home to over 400,000 Yazidis. The United Nations confirmed that 5,000 men were executed, and as many as 7,000 women and girls made sex slaves. While some have escaped or been ransomed back, thousands of Yazidis remain missing. Last month, after Kurdish forces recaptured the area from ISIS jihadists, mass graves, believed to contain the remains of Yazidi women, were discovered east of Sinjar. The German TV channels NDR and SWR declared on their website:

"IS [Islamic State] offers women and underage children in a kind of virtual slave market with for-sale photos. ... The transfer of money, as the reporter discovered, takes place through a liaison office in Turkey. ... "For weeks, NDR and SWR accompanied a Yazidi negotiator, who, on behalf of the families, negotiates with the IS for the release of the slaves and their children. ... the women are sold in a digital slave market to the highest bidder. 15,000 to 20,000 US dollars are a typical price.

DJ, CoViD, flu, climate problems are getting worse...so "the west" starts destroying diplomacy and international relations...

NL may send up to 42 F16 fighter jets (50+y/o) to Romania in november so Ukraine pilots can get training for 1 year...also NL will send patriot air defense to Ukraine...

In Ukraine Russia is "killing" Leopard-2 tanks...UK challeger tanks are not even mentioned by Military Summary./MS..Lots of sources indicate Russia did destroy a lot of (western provided) Ukraine fighter jets with new-long distance (400 km+) air-to-air missiles...MS believes Ukraine fighter jets only can operate over western Ukraine...to far away for (UK made) Storm Shadow missiles to reach a front line...

-Israeli tanks NOT ready for drone warfare

-Israel encircling Gaza-City/North part of Gaza

DJ, The ground war in Gaza did start...Israel first denied that...WU mentions three lines of invasion by Israel;

-following the coast line

-NE Gaza

-Wadi-Gaza cutting the Gaza strip in half. (The video of an Israeli tank shooting at a civilian car was made in this area. Very likely a Palestinian family tried to move south and got killed). 

DJ, Israel did move into parts without much fixed defenses. No doubt Palestinians did try to stop them here. Still "fresh" and with still a lot of weapons-evere meter Israel can not move would be a Palestinian victory...

The US role in this Israeli ethnic cleansing in Gaza/West Bank is;

-US Navy in the Red Sea shooting down missiles from Yemen on their way to Eilat 

-Massive supplies flown/shipped in

-PR/Media campain

-Intel on tunnels & tactics (US has learned a lot on that in Iraq, Afghanistan)

-US boots on the ground ????? DJ-To do what ? Israel may have enough soldiers/special forces. US may have observers/advisors to see what weapons may be needed where..

Clare Daly and Mick Wallace call out the hypocrisy and what should be plainly obvious to everyone. In September Clare and Mick were especially fierce, opposing EU militarism, the "values" nonsense, and even the EU's own huge democratic deficit that make its agenda the opposite of what EU citizens want

Türkiye may also be talking to Syria; Turkish forces moving via Syria to a northern front with Israel. 

Iran-Turkish talks on -possibly also religious aspects....Islamic countries beating the west in Israel...(a new crusaders war...)

The UN talking with Egypt on opening an extra border with Gaza...Maybe Palestinians with also other nationalities can move out of Gaza...

Axios has revealed that the head of Mossad, David Barnea, made a secretive weekend trip to Qatar where he met with senior Qatari officials as part of mediation efforts to secure the release of Israeli and foreign hostages. 

According to the latest update, over 235 are in Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) captivity, and Qatar remains the chief third party communicating with both Tel Aviv and Hamas. But Israeli officials have described that the ground offensive was launched after it became clear that the talks had born no fruit. Barnea was in Doha as the ground invasion kicked off and progressed. According to the Israeli side's conclusions reached as a result of the meetings, per Axios

  • Israel made the decision [to invade] in part because Hamas refused to give Israel via Qatar a list of names of all the hostages it is holding, the officials said.
  • Hamas told the Qatari officials it is still in the process of finding out where all the hostages are located and their identities. But the feeling in Jerusalem was that this was just a tactic to buy time and prevent an Israeli ground operation, the Israeli officials said.

DJ, netanyahu is facing very much/wide criticism on security failure on october 7. 

Both inside and outside Israel there will be lots of questions if military action can end Hamas/Palestinian resistance...

DJ-Again my view; Every bomb may create a few Hamas/other "extremist"....War is NEVER an answer ! 

You have a choice; sit and talk...or fight-sit-talk...If you do not learn from history you keep fighting endless wars...only to sink deeper...

--------------

DJ-My speculation; Even the US-by now-may have decided Israel needs to "cool down"....Israeli military actions in Gaza and West Bank may bring the largest genocide of the 21st century...

[url]https://ejmagnier.com/2023/10/29/ground-invasion-of-gaza-israels-fight-for-the-impossible-goal/[/url] or https://ejmagnier.com/2023/10/29/ground-invasion-of-gaza-israels-fight-for-the-impossible-goal/ 

Possibly next secretary general of NATO -NL-PM mark rutte, close friend of netanyahu and zelensky already is isolated in Dutch politics with only his neo-liberal vvd backing him on his pro-Israel "right of self defence" stand...

Both NATO and Israel may not survive if we do not see an end to the Israeli genocide on Palestinians within a week...

-Türkiye could move away from NATO high speed...position of other SE European countries in NATO could be "on the move" as well...

-Israel is unable -even with lots of NATO/US help- to fight a full scale major war if that would bring in Syria, Egypt, Türkiye and Iran...Lebanon, Jordan may try to stay out of the war...but could get dragged into it via Hizbollah and West Bank uprising...

-US position in the Middle East-North Africa is getting impossible high speed as well...

So both NATO and Israel -once cooled down- may see a need to a ceasefire NOW !!! If they fail to do so we may be moving to an "end game"...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

PetroDollar Death: China Just Used Digital Yuan To Buy Crude Oil For The First Time Ever

DJ, The "Global South", Persian Gulf -Oil-states, South Asia, Russia even India may be increasing the use of Yuan-China currency..

Linked; Bolivia did break ties with Israel, Colombia, Chile did call ambasodors home...Israel admits at least 9 soldiers killed so far in Gaza fighting...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/drone-yemen-intercepted-over-southern-israel-un-warns-war-spreading-outside-gaza[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/drone-yemen-intercepted-over-southern-israel-un-warns-war-spreading-outside-gaza ;

Update(1630ET)There's been more confirmation of the Israeli airstrikes on a densely populated refugee camp in  Jabaliya neighborhood, which lies north of Gaza City. Israel's military has owned up to it, saying an important senior Hamas commander who helped plan the Oct.7 terror attack was eliminated. Al Jazeera is citing health sources at the nearby "Indonesian Hospital" to say that at least 50 Palestinians have been killed, mostly civilians, and that number is expected to rise. "Hundreds" are said to have been injured and killed in the attack, per Sky News.

But when an IDF spokesman was pressed by CNN's Wolf Blitzer over why Israel chose to attack even while knowing hundreds of civilians were there, he essentially explained that eliminating the Hamas commander was more important than safeguarding civilian lives 

DJ, Israel seems to call ALL people living in the north of Gaza "terrorists" since they are not south of the Wadi-Gaza...with Israel moving from the east to the coast following that wadi (rain-river) cutting Gaza in two...and shooting at people still trying to get south...

[url]https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2023/10/31/713758/Top-US-commanders-Tel-Aviv-direct-Israeli-war-Gaza[/url] or https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2023/10/31/713758/Top-US-commanders-Tel-Aviv-direct-Israeli-war-Gaza (Iran) ;

A senior Iranian general says commanders from the US Central Command (CENTCOM) as well as the US Army and Navy have traveled to Tel Aviv to assist Israeli officials in their military onslaught against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.

“The Iranian Armed Forces have received information that commanders of the CENTCOM, as well as the US Army and Navy, have teamed up with Israeli commandants at an underground base in Tel Aviv to supervise and direct the Zionist regime’s brutal offensives against Palestinian people,” Major General Gholam-Ali Rashid, commander of the Khatam al-Anbiya Central Headquarters, said at a gathering of Iranian police commanders and officials in Tehran on Tuesday.

He added, “This shows that the United States’ measures run counter to its claim of restraining the war in the region as thousands of destructive bombs and missiles have already been sent to occupied Palestine, and directions plus support for ground battles are being provided [to Israel].”

DJ...the US goal may be to "control and limit" the war...Netanyahu would like NATO to fight Iran...US may try to avoid that disaster...

----------------

The NATO-BRICS+ confrontation main front-my view-is economy, currency, energy...

US$, UK pound, Euro/€ are dividing NATO...The main reason the US economy could claim to grow was US debts further increased to new record highs...Soon interest payment will be the main item on the US budget...After Brexit the UK did not find an alternative for the EU...lots of indicators point to UK economy moving into depression...

The EU "strength" is its division...other countries/blocks always find an EU member to make deals with...Hungary, Slovakia now even talking with Russia...Most of the EU wants to make deals with China...in many ways want to stay out of any (US) conflict with Iran...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/polish-trucks-threaten-block-border-crossings-ukraine[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/polish-trucks-threaten-block-border-crossings-ukraine ...some "welcome" a "new war" in the Middle East to distract from the biden/NATO made Ukraine disaster...

Russia may have seen close to 100,000 of its soldiers killed...worse than the Soviet war in Afghanistan 1979-89...more deaths that the US did see in Vietnam...Ukraine may have had over half a million deaths...its economy destroyed...No sane western leader is serious of Ukraine becoming a NATO or EU member soon...

Further more-both in Israel and Ukraine "western weapons" showed to be far from superior....(Patriots did miss Yemen/Houthi drones in Saudi Arabia, Turkish Leopard-2 tanks got blown up in both Syria and Iraq-even when they operated in organized-integrated manner...). 

In Ukraine a modern NATO army was destroyed by Russia...

The "NATO-west" has lost its military means to enforce western exploitation to the rest of the world...

----------------

Hizbollah did still not strike Israel on a large scale...Yemen did hit Eilat...Western media can not ignore the Israeli war crimes...Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International push for investigations of Israeli war crimes...

Every bomb, every Palestinian killed is damaging Israel...In many ways Israel has lost the PR war...tourism was a major source of income now gone...One could even claim Hamas wanted this Israeli brutal reaction...welcomes it...

Even in western propaganda-media there are questions on what the Israeli goals are in Gaza..."beat Hamas" !? By killing thousends of civilians ? And then what ? 

Israel claims it does not want to re-occupy Gaza...some documents hint in another direction...Pushing Palestinians from the West Bank -by setlers under IDF supervision-also is seen as ethnic cleansing...a push for "Greater Israel"...

DJ-Countries in the region are NOT ready for a major war with the US...Russia, China, some regional countries keep pushing for diplomacy...

Israel sooner or later will have to pull out of Gaza...or lose western support. It looks like netanyahu has no real strategy...

In Syria Russia did "pick its battles"...with Russia destroying IS...but Israel getting room to attack Iran goals in Syria and Iraq-at least for now...The push for war with Iran by the "netanyahu-gang" is failing...

Tne NATO west did waste trillions of dollars, pounds, euro's on crazy wars trying to stick to western dominancy via military strength...Asian diplomacy did show to be stronger..."make trade NOT war" is winning...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

In Gaza 1,5 million people are without a house -out of the 2,3 million...Still the US-ruled-west keeps sending bombs, intel to Israel...killing hundreds of Palestinians per day. 

On october 8 the Israeli "army" attacked Hamas positions killing both Hamas-fighters and Israeli hostages...blaming Hamas for the dead Israeli's...

By Simon Watkins of OilPrice.com

With the U.S.’s current primary Middle East focus being on trying to deter a widening of the Israel-Hamas War, China and Russia have been busy cementing their influence elsewhere in the region, most recently in Iraq. This remains a key target for Beijing and Moscow to expand their presence for three main reasons. First, it could easily become the world’s top producer of crude oil within a relatively short time if the endemic corruption in its hydrocarbons sector was curtailed. Second, its geographical positioning in the heart of the Middle East make it a vital link in building a network of logistical connections from the east of Eurasia into the west of Europe. And third, together with Iran under whose enduring influence its operates, it forms the core of the spiritual, political, military, and cultural Shia Crescent. A flurry of activity in the past couple of weeks involving Iraq, Russia, and China underline how seriously all these plans are moving forward.

DJ, Iraq has seen what the US/NATO has to offer-killing over 1 million Iraqi citizens, supporting IS, destroying the country...

There are claims Hizbollah, even Iran, could start a second front-tomorrow...The "humanitarian crisis" with over 2 million people living in Israeli/NATO made terror-without water and food is demasking "western civilization"....

US Members of Congress are literally covering for genocidal Israeli violence in Gaza by comparing the innocent victims to Nazis. I have never seen a more openly racist and murderous climate in this country in my lifetime than in this disgusting moment!

and 

More genocidal rhetoric - 'there are no innocent Gaza civilians because there are no innocent Nazi civilians'... the racism, islamophobia, dehumanisation, and genocidal apologism is all there..

Another tragedy. Tariq Abu Obaid, one of the most skilled OR nurses and one of very few cardiac perfusionists in #Gaza who I worked with, was killed along with his family as a result of an #IOF air strikes shortly after he left Shifa Hospital #NotATarget  #MedTwitter

Israel is destroying not only buildings for healthcare...they are also killing health care workers...

The @covidinquiryuk is a very powerful example of how “duty of candour” and “freedom to speak up” don’t work in public life. Witness after witness details how incompetent they thought the UK response was at the time, and yet nobody spoke publicly about it at the time. Why not?

-








Many of us who witnessed firsthand the devastation Covid was causing & STILL IS CAUSING tried to speak up - loudly & repeatedly….& were ignored. & we STILL aren’t doing enough to protect our citizens. Covid is not over, it’s now triggering chronic disease. We need real change.

-

BREAKING  🚨| The Conservative government IGNORED Covid safety warnings in schools because ministers 'didn't want to give an inch to unions'. Released WhatsApp messages at the Covid Inquiry have revealed: Gavin Williamson and Boris Johnson REJECTED calls for masks in schools…
Show more

DJ, bojo did see CoViD as a "welcome solution for the elderly"....








In 2020, scientists who specialise in the 1918 flu pandemic warned clearly and explicitly: "Covid is setting us up for one hundred years of problems." Our leaders were warned what mass covid infection would do. They ignored those warnings🧵

So -with Ukraine collapsing Gaza as a new distraction ? More money being created to get the rich even more rich ? 

If "politics" is losing ALL credebility...go for World War Three ? 

Both the Ukraine and Gaza mass murder could be over NOW if biden wanted it to be over...NATO does NOT need to move east...A Palestinian State has been discussed for decades...And YES...Taiwan is part of China (UN even US accepted that idea...)

Climate disasters are getting a new normal-just like pandemics-just like for-ever wars...all three in a downward spiral...

DJ-The "rest" of the world only can come to one conclusion; the "west" is killing us all...Talking to idiots is pointless...

The rest can try to unable the west to destroy the planet...but US, UK, France, Israel are willing to "go nuclear"...even zelensky in Ukraine may blow up nuclear power plants to "save Ukraine"...Western citizens have to push for regime change...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, Today Hizbollah leader will give a speech on the Gaza/West Bank crisis. There is a lot of speculation on both that speech and other "developments/plans"...

Israel now is spending 0,25 billion US$ per day on military means in this war...Over 300,000 reservist now NOT in their normal job, tourism gone...The Israeli economic damage of this "crisis" allready is extreme. 

[url]https://israelpalestine.liveuamap.com/en/2023/2-november-israels-retaliation-attacks-on-lebanon-have-already[/url] or https://israelpalestine.liveuamap.com/en/2023/2-november-israels-retaliation-attacks-on-lebanon-have-already

Israel's retaliation attacks on Lebanon have already led to the death of 50 Hezbollah members

DJ, The evening of november 2 -local time- did bring severe fighting on the Israel-Lebanon border...

-Will there be an ultimatum put on Israel to end the mass murder in the occupied area's ? 

I take HT with "lots of grains of sand"...I am proberbly one of the "left wing types" he may want to see executed...However;

[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/bulletin-russia-at-united-nations-israel-has-no-right-to-self-defense-as-an-occupying-power[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/bulletin-russia-at-united-nations-israel-has-no-right-to-self-defense-as-an-occupying-power 

Israel has no right to self defense because it is an Occupying Power said Vassily Nebenzia, Russia's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, during a Security Council meeting this morning in New York.

Specifically, Nebenzia stated ""All the West can do is talk about Israel's right to self defense, even though, as the occupying state, it has no such right..."

DJ may be a good legal point...Israel may be defending occupation and repression...That can not be seen as "self defense" in any way....

[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/news-nation/flash-u-s-house-approves-resolution-on-iran-all-means-necessary-to-prevent-nuclear-armed-iran[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/news-nation/flash-u-s-house-approves-resolution-on-iran-all-means-necessary-to-prevent-nuclear-armed-iran has a link to [url]https://www.congress.gov/118/bills/hres559/BILLS-118hres559ih.pdf[/url] or https://www.congress.gov/118/bills/hres559/BILLS-118hres559ih.pdf ;

Whereas international complacency toward Iran’s illicit nuclear program threatens the global nonproliferation regime: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the House of Representatives declares it is the policy of the United States—

(1) that a nuclear Islamic Republic of Iran is not acceptable;

(2) that Iran must not be able to obtain a nu2 clear weapon under any circumstances or conditions;

(3) to use all means necessary to prevent Iran 4 from obtaining a nuclear weapon; and

(4) to recognize and support the freedom of action of partners and allies, including Israel, to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

DJ...so "weapons of mass destruction" excuse-used against Iraq in 2003 -on false grounds- now returning to be used by the US "and a coalition of the willing" against Iran ? 

Iran has become an essential part of BRICS; linking Russia with India via the Caspian Sea, China with Europe...

---------------

DJ-my non expert view;

-In the US lots of division on a "war with Iran"..."realists" know such a war may go nuclear in no time and will bring in most of Asia/Africa/Latin America against the west..

-Very likely the US may only find Israel as a usefull ally in such a war...Europe could even claim -in words- solidarity...In military means Europe may have not much to offer any longer. Ukraine did bring Europe over its military limits...

-Some "neo-cons/neo-liberals" still may believe a "show of strength" may save the "uni-polar world/western domination"...

-Hezbollah -so far- limited its acts of war from Lebanon-very likely coordinating further actions with other partners (Iran, Syria, etc.) however...the Arab/Islamic world can NOT accept these Israeli/western crimes against Palestinians...

-There has been a lot of diplomacy going on...Qatar-diplomats could have been working 24/7...however if diplomacy does not get "good enough" results for a "party" involved (very likely that party may be Israel-backed by the US) there are "limits" to diplomacy...

-Peacefull means (energy boycott, closing US bases, closing ports/airspace for "the west") may not "do the job in time" ...

-Western weapons did show to be very vulnerable...the "west/Israel" can be beaten...

So...there may be a coalition of countries willing to go for military action to end Israeli agression/repression/genocide...And they may believe to be ready for "war" by now...

----------

DJ-I did write this before; An anti-Israel coalition could go for military/logistic targets inside Israel, trying to limit civilian Israeli deaths... By doing so that coalition could try to get/keep international support outside the west...

Massive strikes against civilian targets inside Israel may cost international support...

However...Israel is not a large country...A major attack on it will result in also lots of "collateral damage"...Since military duty is "normal" in Israel a lot of civilians today may be military tomorrow...There must be millions of "reservists" in Israel...

An attack on Israel has to be strong enough to limit counter actions by Israel...A "one strike blow" to avoid/get out of a war...Of course that very likely will go wrong...

US/NATO forces in/near Israel may get involved...

-----------

We are moving towards a very major -high risk- crisis...blinken visiting Israel today (hopefully not only as a Jewish person...his job is secretary of state...) may offer another opening...or not...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

A very good conversation [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fv1P6FeJw3U[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fv1P6FeJw3U ;

SCOTT RITTER JOINS ON THE TRUTH ABOUT ISRAEL WAR, ZELENSKY'S DEMISE, PLUS MORE!

Stream starts at 2:02 
Support independent media by making a paid contribution to keep the work alive on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/dannyhaiphong 

DJ Some (very good) points;

-Hizbollah was trying to play a political role in Lebanon, Iran just joined BRICS/SCO...both more or less had given up on the idea of a (real) Palestinian State

-After october 7 Hamas ensured Palestine is back on the international agenda

-Scott Ritter once did see himself as a "friend of Israel" but he thinks netanyahu is destroying that country

-On Ukraine; Zalushny/Zelensky openly stated their offensive would break the land link between Crimea and Russia...So giving up the surprise element from a much weaker position...Russia knew what was coming...They were ready for it...

Only option left for Ukraine is restaty talks with Russia-end the fighting...Real friends of Ukraine would have accepted the Turkish deal april 2022 -or even better- avoided this crisis and not pushed for the 2014 coup...

DJ, Maybe the basic point a lot of commentators are trying to make; WE ARE DOING IT TO OURSELVES !!!

BRICS would not grow this fast if the west was not going full confrontation all the time...WE !!! pushed Iran and Saudi Arabia to make peace and join BRICS...WE push for lots of countries joining BRICS in Kazan-Russia autumn 2024...WE push Russia-Iran-China towards forming a military alliance...

WE-the west-stopped diplomacy and compromise...The US seem to think to be "better than the rest"...well the rest of the world-even the EU/UK may see things in a different perspective...

DJ-Both the UK and EU are in a very deep crisis...most of all political...Like with the US an "uni-party political elite" is trying to set the rules...Maybe that "elite" has less (longer) room in Europe ?  The BIG problem is a bunch of neo-cons with nuclear weapons still trying to push uni-polar -US- global role...

Scott Ritter mentioned the [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samson_Option[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samson_Option ;

The Samson Option (Hebrewברירת שמשוןb'rerat shimshon) is the name that some military analysts and authors have given to Israel's deterrence strategy of massive retaliation with nuclear weapons as a "last resort" against a country whose military has invaded and/or destroyed much of Israel.[1] Commentators also have employed the term to refer to situations where non-nuclear, non-Israeli actors have threatened conventional weapons retaliation, such as Yasser Arafat.[2]

The name is a reference to the biblical Israelite judge Samson who pushed apart the pillars of a Philistine temple, bringing down the roof and killing himself and thousands of Philistines who had captured him,[3] crying out "Let me die with the Philistines!" (Judges 16:30).[4]

DJ, netanyahu and nuclear weapons -my opinion- a bad combination...

-----------------

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/watch-live-hezbollah-leader-gives-first-speech-israel-high-state-alert[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/watch-live-hezbollah-leader-gives-first-speech-israel-high-state-alert ;

Summary recap: Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah's speech went for just under one-and-a-half hours, and while full of threats and ultra-provocative heated words aimed at Israel and the United States, this was not a declaration of war speech. But he emphasized that Hezbollah's full entry into war with Israel will be determined based on developing events in Gaza, and whether Israel halts its attacks on the Palestinian people. Shelling on the Israel-Lebanese border was reportedly ongoing through and by the end of the speech in Beirut (Nasrallah addressed his top officers via remote feed from a secure location). Some highlights from Nasrallah's speech...

All "Options" on the table

-

US sent message to Hezbollah, warning its ships & planes will attack

Nasrallah related that Hezbollah was warned soon after Oct.7 that US ships and war planes positioned in the Mediterranean would bombard southern Lebanon if Hezbollah fighters escalate attacks on Israel. 

But Nasrallah said, "We will continue to infiltrate" and that Hezbollah's calculus will be "a civilian for a civilian" - meaning that attacks from southern Lebanon will be determined based on the intensity of Israel's attacks on Palestinians. 

"I assure you all options are open on the southern front. They can be adopted anytime," he said. "I assure you it will not be the end, this is not sufficient."

DJ, The US is VERY INVOLVED !!! in current events;

-providing all kind of weapons 24/7 by air, ship

-funding Israel now costs go high/income goes low

-sharing intel

-shooting down missiles a.o. from Yemen

-"self defense claim" while Israel is occupying Palestinian land (against UN decissions). 

------------

Around 1,50 S.R. discussing "teeth-tail"; Ukraine once had simple Soviet weapons; easy to repair...The "teeth" could deal with the Ukraine territory...The logistic-"tail"-does win the war...

NATO did push a lot of modern high tech weapons into Ukraine...but logistics is a drama...Poland has a lot of repair jobs if western weapons make it to return to NATO territory...Russia is keeping the fighting 1000 kilometer from NATO borders...

Israel has a "teeth" problem...Reservists may not be trained well enough to work with high tech gear...Infantery troops staying in the safety of an armoured car become a target for better -for the battlefield- trained Hamas fighters..(One dealing with "Trophy" anti grenade protection, secon d fighter blowing up the vehicle..killing the Israeli soldiers...) 

DJ-Israel only can fight a limited war...even with all the US/NATO help pooring in...

Do not expect a direct declaration of war by Nasrallah. That is not his style. He wants no one in Lebanon to blame him when the war escalates But it will escalate, and Hezbollah will go to the next stage.

DJ, The US made it very clear-they will defend Israel....with a few carriers/ships/planes and US bases spread widely in the region...The US is a "sitting duck" but fails to even get that point...

What is "saving" Israel/US for now ? 

-Countries have to find strategies and allies...get a plan together...

-Civil defense is major in a big war...It does take time

-Countries did not want this war...but can not accept netanyahu "greater Israel" genocide/ethnic cleansing of Gaza/West Bank

-There are border issues; Golan Heights-Syria, Sheba Farms-Lebanon, Mediterranean coast line with oil and gas...Lebanon, Israel, Gaza very likely Egypt, Syria, Türkiye want to exploit that energy

So...what is next ? 

Hezbollah is keeping over 90,000 Israeli forces on the Lebanese border...Other countries could "increase pressure" pulling even more Israeli soldiers away from the 300,000 in the South of Israel...

Stopping western support for netanyahu also would be "wise"; from energy boycot, closing air/sea-space/ports to ending US bases in the region...The "west" did see relations with MENA (Middle East North Africa) getting worse...it can get even more worse...

Another -less likely- option could be a "no fly zone" over Gaza...imposed by Russia from Egypt/Mediterranean...Russia has had good relations with Israel...Once Putin and netanyahu were very close...The 15/20% Russian (speaking) minority in Israel may be anti-Arab but may accept the fact that "Israel needs Asia"...

So-I hope to be right-NO regional war...it would also fit biden his "wish" to get reelected...He does not need energyprices going "explosive" hyper-inflation...

My (non expert) view is US/NATO military warn "the west" is NOT ready for a major war in West Asia...risks of it getting nuclear is unacceptably high...so de-escalate...

.....biden/NATO needs to "claim" they did not lose the wars in Ukraine, Israel...so it has to be "wrapped" as "compromise" maybe even a "western victory" (with Ukraine staying out of NATO/EU, a pro-BRICS leadership...a Palestine from Gaza-Negev to the West Bank...).

The other -only- option may be the [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samson_Option[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samson_Option ..a "west" unable to give up the idea of western (racist) domination..."We win or nobody wins"...nuclear blackmail going wrong...I hope we can stay away from that insanity...

Costs....

Confrontation instead of diplomacy bankrupted "the west"...Let me be very clear...most of the blame for that is with "crazy joe" biden...but neo-cons/liberals in the "west" did give him that room...

Certainly German "greens" deserve a big thank you; Claiming to want to save the planet the German "green party" showed itself as a bunch of crazy war-mongers...breaking every promise they made...Export of weapons to countries at war..."no problem"...Coal as a source of energy...

German "greens" are not a "joke" but an insult to hamanity ! WE NEED TO SOLVE THE CLIMATE PROBLEM !!!

But German greens did the worst possible job for the planet..even trump is more "green"....disgusting !

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, Dutch (NOS) news; "A UN-school in Gaza has been bombed-unclear by who"...."Ukraine rebuilding"...western media, "propaganda-journalism" enable wars and genocide...

Now in Amman FMs of Egypt, Jordan, KSA, UAE, Qatar & the PLO Executive Committee’s Secretary General, are holding a meeting with State Secretary @SecBlinken of US. Intensive Arab efforts to halt the war in Gaza, & provide necessary protection to Palestinians

Tens of thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters marched across Washington DC on Saturday to protest US involvement in the Israel-Hamas war, stopping outside the White House to shout "Allahu Akbar" , "Fuck Joe Biden," and "Biden, Biden, you can't hide! We charge you with genocide!" -  while smearing red paint and pushing on the gate.

Protest Building Around Incirlik Air Base

The Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), the Turkish non-profit that organised the event, said hundreds of vehicles were driving towards Turkey’s capital, Ankara, on Friday afternoon with many more protesters expected to join as the convoy stops in cities along the way, covering nearly 1,000km (620 miles).

Convoys departing from three other Turkish cities – Kahramanmaras, Kayseri and Van – were also expected on Sunday to reach Adana, where the demonstrators plan to encircle the Incirlik Air Base to protest against US support for Israel and to call for a ceasefire in Gaza.

Biden White House aims to scapegoat Netanyahu

DJ, Lots of Jewish groups inside and outside of Israel HATE netanyahu....One of the reasons for the mass murder in Gaza is "bibi netanyahu" trying to stay Israel PM....

Both neo-con biden and blinken -in fact- support this genocide on Palestinians...

My non expert view; Hizbollah from Lebanon is balancing attacks on Israel without pulling in the US...Lots of countries are disgusted by the Israeli -NATO backed- mass murder...But maybe also -for now- see it as a form of Israeli self-destruction...

There has been a trend in/from Israel of Israeli citizens moving out of Israel. Anti-democratic netanyahu is a reason, but also the unhealthy mix of religion and politics...Rabbi's who decide who is "Jewish" and may get an Israeli passport...A marriage in Israel by definition is religious...even if both partners are not...

Israeli propaganda on the october 7 Hamas acts of terror-ignoring the Israeli overreaction (not only killing Hamas terrorists but also the -many- hostages, but also the "rave-party" that was attacked had a lot of Israeli defense staff dancing till the attack...) did mobilize a lot of anger...But the answer on terrorism can not be more terrorism...

DJ-my view-the netanyahu agenda is ethnic cleansing of both Gaza and West Bank...a "greater Israel" only for "Jews"...So far the "west" claiming Israeli "self defence"  (UK is defence, US is defense)...ignoring Israel is occupying Palestinian land...

The Fall | Military Coup In Kyiv? | Pummeling Of The Dnieper Bank. Military Summary For 2023.11.04

DJ, MS claiming zelensky fired zalushni and other high ranking Ukraine military...Also zelensky would be claiming "Ukraine is doing the dirty work for NATO" and he-zelensky-has to be paid for organizing that "dirty work"...So far NATO claimed to be "helping" Ukraine in "self defense" against "bad Russia/bad Putin"....ignoring NATO is moving east..

A trial ballon has gone up on the NBCnews website. It is testing the public reaction to the upcoming U.S. and NATO acknowledgment of their defeat in Ukraine:

U.S., European officials broach topic of peace negotiations with Ukraine, sources sayNBCnews - Nov 03 2023

WASHINGTON — U.S. and European officials have begun quietly talking to the Ukrainian government about what possible peace negotiations with Russia might entail to end the war, according to one current senior U.S. official and one former senior U.S. official familiar with the discussions.

This comes the same week that saw a Time piece about Zelenski's unwillingness to consider the real situation on Ukraine and to admit defeat. The same week the Economist interviewed General Zaluzny who optimistically spoke of a stalemate at the front even while his army is on the cusp of disintegration.

Taken together the three pieces might well be part of a U.S. administration campaign to concede its defeat in Ukraine while blaming its Ukrainian proxy forces for the results of its blunder.

DJ, The "west/NATO" is paying Ukraine, Israel for the anti-BRICS+ wars...Both Ukraine genocide on Russian speakers and Israel genocide on Palestinians do NOT stop NATO help...

--------------------

BRICS (future) members by now know what NATO/west has to offer; genocide and lies...

A fitting strategy may be to contain that "west" and get it economically "beaten"....

DJ, autumn 2024 in Kazan-Russia new members will be chosen. 

Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa welcome Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates per january 24.

----------

DJ-Some US extremists with some European political idiots help try to push for war with Iran, China...Both in economic and military sense "the west" only may have nuclear options left...

In that "west" a large part of public opinion is against (more) war(s)....The economy is collapsing...

Political lies denied the ongoing CoViD-pandemic, Climate collapse bringing more and more extreme weather events...

DJ, The basic WRONG idea biden/western leaders had; US indispensable...US made rules "for the globe"...US "exceptionalism"....Based on that WRONG idea "western sanctions" did fail as a weapon...

Nothing, absolutely nothing beats the EUrocrat branch of Stupidistan. Sanction dementia and cutting off economic/energy relations with Russia cost the EU something like $𝟭.𝟱 𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗼𝗻, according to Russian Deputy FM Grushko. That happens to be more than the total military budget of the whole NATOstan. Brussels now is a total slave of two  extremely shabby entities, the imploding Hegemon and Israel. This has got to be the most appalling moment in the combined history of European politics.

DJ...western sanctions are destroying the west NOT the rest of the world...

...so sanctions did not work...Western military is "superior"...Well it is not...

A trend may be Russia now more and more destroying bridges/supply lines and command centers...Since Ukraine is running out of trained soldiers "NATO" is no longer willing to provide weapons to untrained soldiers...Even a lot of "western liars/"experts" now admitting Ukraine can "not win" this war...

Still those "experts" claim a sort of stalemate...denying Russia did -in fact- beat NATO months ago....

Israeli army STUCK | Hamas Ambushes EVERYWHERE | Major UNREST In Israel & The World

DJ, Hamas may have seen the latest NATO disaster in Ukraine when they decided for the major october 7 terror strike...Still the other part-Israeli security faillure-Hamas was supposed to be stopped and destroyed at the Gaza-border ! NOT be able to set one foot on Israeli soil...AI-faillure does NOT explain all of the story...

Whatever is coming is apparently HUGE!   At about 4:00 PM eastern STANDARD Time (GMT-0500) here in the USA, the Israeli Defense Force put out a message on social media that they have **NEVER** put out before:  "Pray for us."   It's all over social media right now . . .

DJ, Israeli forces are now in an urban jungle...They send in army dogs with transmitters/camera's to get a view on the tunnels...(DJ-poor dogs...)

In a "normal" military way Israel would be able to destroy Hamas positions in Gaza...however guerilla warfare, NO cover by infantry of Israeli tanks, is giving Israel a "very hard time"...Israel is bombing -flattening- populated urban area's....the mass murder goes on killing very likely over 1,000 civilians per day...to maybe also kill a few Hamas/other Palestinian fighters...

netanyahu in Israel now only at 24% approval...even worse than "crazy joe biden"....Still the US did send the CIA director to Tel Aviv, is sending MORE military to "the region"...

DJ-For me a big question...netanyahu wants NATO to start war with Iran...does biden support that ? 

Maybe another remark; "Countries" may get involved without much "showing". From cutting supplies/air space for US/NATO forces to electronic warfare...Israel facing communication problems...(and maybe even tech problems...electronics hacked...). 

So the "big picture" in the NATO - BRICS+ "conflict" NATO may be close to collapse...Very likely the only way out is start communication and end confrontation...

Global Energy Transition. Are we winning?

The Global Energy Transition is the most profound change to human civilisation since the end of the last glacial period about 11,000 years ago. There will be winners and losers, and as a result some are trying to slow or even stop the disruption of their established markets. We all know who they are! So how is it going? Well, the International Energy Agency says it can be done, but ONLY if there is NO NEW COAL, OIL or GAS exploration or exploitation from this point onwards. COP28 has now been completely hijacked by the oil industry...so is the transition a realistic prospect or just a pipe dream?

DJ....NO !!!! Main economic growth will NOT be via trade with the "west"...

My -non expert- view; 

-NATO is no longer able to enforce ANY !!!! trade in $ or € ...countries may use those currencies...But using western currencies is weakening their own currency...So why do that ? 

-The "west" has not enough natural resources for its present consumption/demand...undermining further the $/€

-Also production capacity simply is not strong enough...cheap energy is "gone"...

-Including Ukraine/Moldova in the EU may reduce labor costs...but -a very likely next (insane) step could be Ukraine using the € (Euro) would make that Euro as good as worthless...

-BRICS+ countries/companies already buying those western companies that are of interest for them...(BRICS+ moving in via the back door)

In an alarming statement that has raised tensions across the Middle East, Israeli Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu has publicly acknowledged Israel’s nuclear capabilities for the first time. This unprecedented admission has reverberated worldwide, bringing a new level of concern to the ongoing conflict in the region.

Adding to the international unease, Minister Eliyahu suggested the possible use of nuclear force as a ‘possible solution’ to the conflict with Gaza. This stance has provoked widespread condemnation and raised serious ethical questions. The minister’s comments have sparked a wave of outrage within Israel itself, with critics condemning his apparent disregard for the lives of 240 people reportedly being held in Gaza but not the broader implications of using nuclear weapons against a civilian Palestinian population in the modern era.

Adding to the controversy, Eliyahu has spoken out against the provision of humanitarian aid to Gaza, making a controversial comparison to withholding assistance from the Nazis and claiming that there are no innocent civilians in the enclave. These comments have intensified the debate over the humanitarian situation in Gaza and the conduct of warfare in densely populated areas, which violate international laws and confirm the committed crimes against humanity.

This revelation comes against a backdrop of unrelenting conflict, as Palestinian resistance forces continue to launch attacks deep into Israeli territory, including the heart of Tel Aviv. Despite encirclement and relentless bombardment by sea, air and land, the resistance in Gaza continues as Israeli troops advance deeper into the northern sectors of Gaza City.

DJ, The netanyahu-cult of extremists push for a "Greater Israel" with only "Jews"...Gaza is step 1, West Bank step 2...

Claiming "self defense" the west is not stopping this genocide but helping it....So...what is keeping "non western countries" stopping this crime ? 

-Nuclear weapons from both Israel and US....

In Ukraine zelensky may attack/blow up nuclear power plants to "get his way"...

We are in an era of nuclear black mail...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Col. Douglas Macgregor: America’s failed diplomacy.

DJ, Some (in the US, Israel, NATO) are "waiting for an excuse to attack Iran";

Since Hezbolla, Shia-militia's in Syria/Iraq attacking US bases, Yemen-Houthi's ALL are supposed to represent Iran (and have no will of their own-in some "western view") ;

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/military/us-rare-move-advertises-location-nuclear-capable-submarine-near-israel[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/military/us-rare-move-advertises-location-nuclear-capable-submarine-near-israel ;

Update(1410ET): At what is obviously a highly dangerous moment where the United States has two carrier strike groups and a nuclear-powered submarine parked in regional waters (a rare build-up even during the prior "global war on terror" years), Yemen's Iran-backed Houthis have launched a wave of drones toward Israel

Yemen’s Houthis launched a new batch of drones against sensitive targets inside Israel on Monday, according to a statement from their armed forces broadcast by TV channel Al Masirah.

The statement said the targets of the drones were “varied and sensitive” and led to halting the movement in the targeted bases and airports for hours.

It's unclear how effective they were in reaching Israeli territory, if at all. So far the Yemeni rebels have sent a handful of missiles toward Israel, reportedly with no casualties or damage. The Houthis last week declared "war" on Israel, though their launch sites remain a great distance away from reaching Israeli territory.

-So Yemen...

Two major US-run military bases in Syria’s northeastern province of Hasakah and Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region have been once again targeted by drones, amid smoldering anti-US sentiments in the region over its unconditional support for Israel’s onslaught on the Gaza Strip.

Citing local sources speaking on condition of anonymity, Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network reported that several unmanned aerial vehicles struck targets inside the US military installation near al-Khadra village in Hasakah province early on Tuesday morning.

There were no immediate reports about the extent of damage at the military facility, and possible casualties.

Earlier, a drone attack targeted US forces based near the Erbil International Airport.

The Israeli army has reportedly hired foreign mercenaries, including a notorious Spanish group, to use in its brutal war on the besieged Gaza Strip.

El Mundo, a major Spanish newspaper, interviewed Pedro Diaz Flores, a notorious Spanish mercenary, who said “many” mercenary groups have joined Israel’s army that pays them “very well.”

“So I came for economy, for money. They pay very well, they offer good equipment and the work is calm. It is 3,900 euros [$4,187] per week, complementary missions aside,” he said of his motives for joining the Israeli forces.

Pedro Diaz Flores previously fought alongside neo-Nazis in Ukraine after Russia began a special military operation in the country’s Donbas region last year.

“We only provide security support to arms convoys or the troops of the Israeli armed forces that are in the Gaza Strip. We do not fight Hamas directly, nor are we involved in assault operations,” he claimed.

“We are in charge of the security of the checkpoints and access control on the borders of Gaza and Jordan. There are many PMCs (private military companies) here and they share the work. Traditionally they have guarded border terminals between Eliat and Aqaba,” he added.

DJ, paid by US tax dollars ?

The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that the Biden administration is planning a $320 million transfer of precision-guided bomb kits to Israel, a show of support for the Israeli onslaught despite the growing civilian death toll.

The report said the administration notified congressional leaders on October 31 that it intended to transfer Spice Family Gliding Bomb Assemblies, which turn unguided bombs into precision-guided munitions that can be fired by Israeli warplanes.

The bombs will be transferred from weapons manufacturer Rafael USA to its Israeli parent company, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems. It’s unclear what funds will be used for the transfer or if Israel is purchasing the equipment.

Israel receives $3.8 billion in annual military aid from the US, and the Biden administration is looking to provide another $14 billion to support the Gaza campaign. In the wake of the October 7 Hamas attack on southern Israel, the US began immediately shipping new military equipment to Israel.

There are claims Israel did see 350+ soldiers killed in the Gaza fighting...With the major horror of urban fighting still in the future...If one includes the military killed on october 7 Israel may see the heaviest losses since the 1948 , 1973 wars...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_involving_Israel[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_involving_Israel ...

Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi says the Islamic Republic supports any joint global effort seeking to establish an immediate ceasefire in Gaza as Israel continues its brutal attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip.

Speaking in a phone call with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, Raeisi added that Iran backs collective bids to lift the blockade on Gaza and provide aid to the oppressed Palestinian people in the war-hit territory.

"The continuation of the killing of the Palestinian people has infuriated all the free nations in the world,” the president said, warning that the killings will have “extra-regional consequences.”

It would be "unfair and unrealistic" to carry out any analysis of the recent Israeli crimes in Gaza without paying heed to the root causes, the president emphasized.

He said all nations condemn the "unacceptable" killing of the oppressed and innocent Palestinian women and children, as well as attacks on hospitals, schools, mosques, churches and residential areas.

DJ, 85 years ago [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kristallnacht[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kristallnacht ;

Kristallnacht (German pronunciation: [kʁɪsˈtalnaχt] ) or the Night of Broken Glass, also called the November pogrom(s) (GermanNovemberpogromepronounced [noˈvɛm.bɐ.poˌɡʁoːmə] ),[1][2] was a pogrom against Jews carried out by the Nazi Party's Sturmabteilung (SA) paramilitary and Schutzstaffel (SS) paramilitary forces along with some participation from the Hitler Youth and German civilians throughout Nazi Germany on 9–10 November 1938. The German authorities looked on without intervening.[3]

The [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Holocaust[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Holocaust ;

The Holocaust was the genocide of European Jews during World War II. Between 1941 and 1945, Nazi Germany and its collaborators systematically murdered some six million Jews across German-occupied Europe, around two-thirds of Europe's Jewish population. The murders were carried out primarily through mass shootings and poison gas in
