These are important stories that you may have missed over the weekend—reports whose geopolitical importance is certain to expand significantly during the coming week.
I appreciate you doing such a thorough round up.
Why? This is all so utterly needless and painful to bear.
To anyone personally affected by these events, I'm sending my love and very best wishes. I hope and pray your loved ones will be kept safe. xxx
Jewish World population 16.1M
Muslim World population 1.9 Billion (2nd largest religion)
Just by sheer numbers, Jewish response is tempered for their very survival. They VALUE their children, are not part of a culture that disregards undervalues and discriminates against women children elderly for a patriarchal structure so harsh those in power easily view their less powerful members expendable.
No, the way this gets solved has a lot more to do with the fascism within that culture, as the powerful find the Palestinian cause convenient for the own manipulation purposes-blame the Jew for Muslim suffering instead of the obscenely wealthy ruling sheiks (dictators) who’ve convinced the lot their world suffering & sacrifices will result in nirvana with 18 virgins.
These stories do kind of make it sound like Israel is poking the bear. US is in a tough spot and the continuation of authoritarian-like movements makes it tougher and tougher as the days go on. International news is highlighting the importance of the Abraham Accord in exacerbating the situation and a large contributing factor to the Hamas assault. Hope this thread is picked up and analyzed by US news.
Hamas declared war on Israel. They did not ask or start this war. Israel’s very existence is at stake. You can not keep a rabid dog at arms length forever. Unfortunately in alls wars, there are civilian casualties.
Thanks for all the work you do Seth.
Thank you for this comprehensive weekend roundup, Seth. You must be reeling after immersing yourself, even second-hand, in all those reports about the terrifying chaos which reigns in both Israel and in Gaza. Please take care of yourself. I find it all too easy to spend hours surfing the web for the latest news. I usually quit when I realize I have no idea what I've just read.
Sounds like the Netanyahu regime is losing no time in trying to stifle dissent and to keep the world from seeing what IDF is doing.
Also sounds like open season on journalists.
I still have so many questions. For instance, why is Biden going to Israel? Isn't that personally dangerous for him and for our country when we don't even have a speaker of the House? Do you think he feels being on the scene will help him to ride herd on Netanyahu?
Another question: what can the United Nations actually DO in the current situation?
Thank you for your dedication and integrity. ~
If Shlomo Karhi is successful in getting this regulation passed, would that make Israel officially an UNdemocratic country?
Israel Planning Major Crackdown on Domestic Dissent
HAARETZ: “Israeli Communications Minister [and Likud Party politician] Shlomo Karhi is promoting regulations that would allow him to direct police to arrest civilians, remove them from their homes, or seize their property if he believes they have spread information that could harm national morale or served as the basis for enemy propaganda.”
I'm sure Hamas and Iranian representatives were debating something benign like he number of prophets in Islam.. What could be more innocent?
