Truth Gets Out

 Honest Folk,

  Scandal-stained Israeli 'rescue' group fuels October 7 fabrications , Max Blumenthal   Thanks Eleni.
  Founded by a serial rapist known as the "Haredi Jeffrey Epstein," Israeli ultra-Orthodox rescue group ZAKA is responsible for some of the most obscene post-October 7 atrocity fabrications, from beheaded babies to "mass rape" to a fetus cut from its mother.
  Secretary of State Tony Blinken and President Joseph Biden have each echoed demonstrably false ZAKA testimonies about Hamas atrocities.
  Marred by allegations of financial fraud, ZAKA is leveraging October 7 publicity to raise unprecedented sums of cash.
Its rival, United Hatzalah, has spun out bogus tales of babies baked in ovens as it closes in on a $50 million fundraising goal.
  During an October 31 Senate hearing on Israel's war in Gaza, Secretary of State Antony Blinken offered his rationale for rejecting a ceasefire. Summoning as much emotion as a dour Democratic Party operative could muster, Blinken conjured up a gruesome scene intended to illustrate the savagery of Hamas, and the impossibility of negotiations with such an organization:
  "A young boy and girl, 6 and 8 years old, and their parents around the breakfast table. The father's eye gouged out in front of his kids. The mother's breast cut off, the girl's foot amputated, the boy's fingers cut off before they were executed." 
The Secretary of State concluded, "That is what this [Israeli] society is dealing with."
  Though Blinken did not state the source of his disturbing claim - and was not prompted to do so by any senator - it matched testimony delivered by Yossi Landau, the head of operations for the southern Israel region of a religious "disaster victim identification" organization called ZAKA. Indeed, Landau has rehashed various forms of the story Blinken referenced since October 12, detailing how Hamas militants viciously mutilated and killed a 6 and 8 year-old child and their parents in Kibbutz Beeri before dining in their home.
  Despite the presence of multiple potential witnesses inside Beeri before ZAKA arrived to collect dead bodies, independent testimony corroborating Landau's claim has yet to surface. Further, there are no recorded deaths of siblings around the age of 6 to 8 in Beeri on October 7. Any record of a young child killed in the manner Landau described is similarly nonexistent, as are photos of the murdered family he described. In fact, the only siblings anywhere close to this age range who died in the community on that day — 12-year-old twins Liel and Yanai Hetrzroni — were killed by Israeli tank shelling.

​  We Blew Up Israeli Houses on 7 October, Says Israeli Colonel
Speaking in Hebrew about the airstrikes, Colonel Nof Erez told a Haaretz podcast in November, that “the Hannibal Directive was apparently applied” and that 7 October “was a mass Hannibal.”

  Behind enemy bars: Palestinian and Israeli prisoners
  The fair treatment of Israeli captives by Hamas has become part of the information war between Palestinians and Tel Aviv. Left unsaid is that there remain thousands of Palestinians in captivity who barely survive their Israeli detention...
  “We were sitting in the tunnels and we were terribly afraid not that Hamas but Israel would kill us, and then they would say - Hamas killed you.”
Another former Israeli captive went further in expressing disdain for the Israeli government's responses on and after the events of 7 October:
  "The feeling we had there was that no one was doing anything for us. The fact is that I was in a hiding place that was shelled and we had to be smuggled out and were wounded. Not including the helicopter that shot at us on the way to Gaza. You claim that there is intelligence, but the fact is that we are being shelled. My husband was separated from us three days before we returned to Israel and taken to the tunnels. And you are talking about washing the tunnels with sea water? You are shelling the route of tunnels in the exact area where they are.” ...
..Unlike the Israeli detainees, freed Palestinian political prisoners have spoken directly to the international media and provided horrifying accounts of physical abuse, including torture, beatings, and even rape. According to a number of Palestinian women and children who were freed in the latest exchanges, they were threatened by Israelis not to speak out about their treatment in detention.
  “There are no laws. Everything is permitted,” Lama Khater, a freed Palestinian captive, told the media. “I was led to the investigation handcuffed and blindfolded, I was threatened with being burned, I was explicitly threatened with rape and with deportation to the Gaza Strip,” she added.

​  Israel-Palestine war: In war, words matter. Palestinian 'prisoners' are hostages, too
​  Palestinian captives arrested, or rather captured by the Israeli army in the West Bank or police in occupied East Jerusalem, are hostages. Under Israeli law, any Palestinian of any age can be seized at any time of the day or night with no warrant, no charges, and held for days, months or years under “administrative detention”.

Gaza hospitals overwhelmed with wounded — enclave’s health ministry

WHO 'extremely concerned' about thousands of patients, health care workers in Gaza'The only way to protect them is a ceasefire. NOW,' says WHO chief

​  Hundreds of Palestinian boys and men over the age of 15 are being rounded up by occupation forces in northern Gaza, stripped of their clothes and taken away.
​  Shocking images and video footage circulating online show the boys and men stripped to their underwear and left sitting on the ground in the cold winter temperatures in Gaza. They can be seen surrounded by heavily armed Israeli occupation soldiers who are screaming orders at them.
​  Further images show an army people carrier filled with the men being driven away.
​  It is not clear how many boys and men were disappeared, but some reports have put the figure as high as 700. They are said to have been taken from shelter schools in northern Gaza where thousands of displaced civilians were forced to take shelter as a result of the bombing and destruction of their neighbourhoods and homes.

​  Is Truth Becoming Valueless?​  Paul Craig Roberts
​  In America and its Western puppet states, there is today no greater crime than to be a truth-teller. Despite habeas corpus and due process enshrined in British law and the US Constitution, Julian Assange has been illegally detained for a decade for telling the truth. Reiner Fuellmich, the Germany attorney, who was about to file charges against the pharmaceutical companies for deaths and injuries from the Covid “vaccine,” was kidnapped in Mexico by the German government and placed in solitary confinement in Germany on obviously false charges in order to prevent the lawsuit. Barry Young, the New Zealand Covid database administrator who released the official data showing that the alleged “vaccine” was a deadly killer, has been arrested for revealing the truth.
  Be sure you understand what I am telling you. Those who tell you the truth are being arrested and treated worst than mass murderers. Murder is not a threat to the corrupt ruling establishment, but Truth is.
​  All truth-tellers have a target on their backs, including me. For reporting accurately on Putin’s hopes for reconciliation with Washington, I was labeled a “Putin agent/dupe.”
​  This was just the beginning. George Soros, who Elon Musk said “appears to want nothing less than the destruction of Western civilization,” finances “fact checkers” and “verification” sites, the purpose of which is to discredit those who tell the truth. The State Department, the FBI, CIA, Mossad, and any number of government agencies and official organizations in the West work overtime to discredit truth-tellers...
​..Every corrupt, evil, material interest has money to demonize the truth. NewsGuard is one of their operatives. These are people devoid of integrity, but these sorts of sites are plentiful online, and given the insouciance of the American people, these sites might  have more influence than truth-tellers.
​  It raises the questions: can truth prevail when endless money can shout truth down? Can truth survive when people show scant interest in supporting truth and those who tell it?

​  Israel-Palestine war: Most US-based Middle East scholars self-censoring speech critical of Israel, survey finds
Eighty-one percent of academics polled say they have self-censored
criticism of Israel amid the war in Gaza

​  The Los Angeles Times (LAT) has banned 38 journalists from covering Gaza for at least three months after they signed an open letter criticizing Western newsrooms for their biased reporting on Israel’s genocide of Palestinians.
​  “The urgency of this moment cannot be overstated. It is imperative that we change course,”
the open letter says.
LAT management claimed that signing the open letter violated the paper’s ethics policy, but the policy contains no explicit prohibition against open letters.

​  Just Like 9/11? Suspicious Israeli Stock Market Activity Hints at Foreknowledge of October 7 Attack
​  A  new academic study has made a shocking and highly controversial finding. Suspicious Israeli stock market activity in the days preceding Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on October 7 indicates that a particular party had foreknowledge of the impending attack and used that information to directly profit from the panic that ensued...
​..The paper notes numerous historical precedents for such activity, which “occurs in gaps in U.S. and international enforcement of legal prohibitions on informed trading.” Research on “profitable trading on the basis of information about coming military conflict” is an underdeveloped academic field.​..
​..The author of this article makes no comment on theories that Operation Al-Aqsa Flood was actively permitted to go ahead by Tel Aviv to secure a pretext for executing the horrific genocide currently unfolding in Gaza. The attack’s success may well be attributable to Israel’s complacency and a genuine “intelligence failure” of epic proportions.
​  However, countless indications that so many knew something was brewing for so long – including foreign governments and intelligence agencies – raises the prospect that someone, or some individuals with prior knowledge of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, sought to capitalize accordingly.

  ​"No, No, No, It Didn't Happen!"   Criticism mounts of professors' controversial Hamas short-selling claims (Can they determine who profited? will they?)
  Israeli Securities Authority publicly said that it looked into any suspicious trading in Israel ahead of the attacks and found nothing abnormal that required further investigation.
  Separately, officials from Israel's Tel Aviv Stock Exchange pointed out that the potential profits to some TASE trades that the paper spotlighted were magnified by an order of 100 due to an error related to the denomination of stocks. (Stocks in Israel are priced in agorot — basically, pennies — rather than shekels.)
The authors acknowledged the error and revised the paper.
  Yes, but: The authors say the core findings — that there were large, unusual short positions taken in the U.S.-listed MSCI Israel ETF ahead of the Hamas attacks on Oct. 7 — were not altered by TASE's concerns.
  Their key finding is that shorts surged to nearly 100% of all trading volume on Oct. 2, just days ahead of the attack.
"The ISA's investigation did not address the short selling in the Israel ETF or short-dated options described in our paper. We hope regulators in Israel and around the world will continue to examine these troubling trading patterns," wrote Joshua Mitts, a Columbia Law School professor and co-author of the paper, to Axios.
  Meanwhile: Skeptics are also picking away at the assertion that the large short positions were even anomalous at all.

 Dec. 08(YPA) – The military spokesperson for the Al-Qassam Brigades, Abu Obeida, confirmed that, over the past 72 hours, Al-Qassam fighters managed to destroy 135 military vehicles entirely or partially in all combat zones in the Gaza Strip.
  They inflicted casualties on dozens of Zionist soldiers, causing deaths and injuries by exploding several tunnel openings and booby-trapped houses near enemy soldiers, Abu Obeida said in a statement on Thursday evening.
  “They targeted invading Zionist forces in their positions and engagements with anti-fortification shells, projectiles, and anti-personnel devices, engaging them at point-blank range.”

​  Bibi's way out; Biden's CYA...  US criticizes Israel on Gaza civilian toll as UN to hear ceasefire demand​ 
 US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, in his strongest public criticism of Israel’s conduct of the war on Hamas in south Gaza, said there was a gap between the government’s declared intentions to protect civilians and the casualties.
​  “As we stand here almost a week into this campaign into the south... it remains imperative that Israel put a premium on civilian protection,” Blinken told a press conference after meeting British Foreign Secretary David Cameron in Washington on Thursday.
​  “And there does remain a gap between... the intent to protect civilians and the actual results that we’re seeing on the ground.”
​  Israel says it must wipe out the Hamas militant group after its attack on Israel two months ago and is doing everything possible to get civilians out of harm’s way, including warnings about military operations.
​  US President Joe Biden spoke separately by phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jordan’s King Abdullah on Thursday. Biden “emphasized the critical need to protect civilians and to separate the civilian population from Hamas including through corridors that allow people to move safely from defined areas of hostilities,” the White House said.

​  Simplicius has this: Establishment Alarmism in Overdrive as Raytheon Lloyd Threatens Congress with War
I'll​ mention some points he makes. 
"Russia would be afraid to fight in Ukraine if Ukraine joined NATO, but Russia will invade NATO as soon as it gets done with Ukraine. So Send Money/Weapons NOW!"
​  Biden openly says that American troops will have to fight Russian troops if Ukraine is not shored up immediately...  Kirby and Blinken stepped up the fearmongering as well, evoking spilled “American blood”...
​..Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin warned Congress on Tuesday during a private briefing that if they do not pass more aid to Ukraine, it would “very likely” lead to U.S. troops fighting a war in Europe.
​  “If [Vladimir] Putin takes over Ukraine, he’ll get Moldova, Georgia, then maybe the Baltics,” House Foreign Affairs Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) told The Messenger, after Austin and other senior Biden administration officials briefed House lawmakers on their request for more aid for Ukraine.
​  “And then the idea that we’ll have to put troops on the ground in Secretary Austin’s word was very likely,” McCaul added. “That’s what we’re trying to avoid.”
Recall in the last report I cited Moldova as precisely the next vector, given the sensitivity of the PMR pressure point for Russia.
​  Most notable is his express use of the qualifier “very likely” to describe U.S. troops fighting on the ground. In fact, the U.S. has been preparing for this grand European war for a while now. Reports have continued to come out this year about NATO attempting to remold the eastern flank’s infrastructure to properly prepare it logistically for a war:
️The EC calls for a 1435 mm European gauge railway to be built in the Baltics by 2030. But there is no certainty​ that Rail Baltica will be built in time​...
​..Add the above to recent reports of the NATO ‘military Schengen’ which I recently covered, and we get a clear picture of the slow attempt to move Europe onto a war footing, with the attendant infrastructural revampments.​..
​..So, according to them, even if the funding were to have processed this month, they wouldn’t get the first major deliveries until March and April. So now imagine what happens if it’s true that the funding is dead for this year. Congress won’t come back from recess until January and their docket will be full. They won’t have opportunity to begin even attempting to vote on Ukraine again until well into Jan or even February.
​  If they happen to reach some agreement, major equipment may not arrive until April, May, or even later.​..
​..Lloyd Austin, Biden, and co., have dialed up the fearporn precisely because they see the above projection and know what it entails. So they’ve resorted to trying to scare the pants off the GOP congressmen to ram through that aid, but it seems the cheap tactic didn’t work.
​  That’s not to mention the fact that Russia is now advancing on every single front, with breakthroughs everywhere.​..
​..Our sources said that the President's Office banned the General Staff from conducting active mobilization in Kiev, so as not to set up residents of the capital against Zelensky. On Bankova Street, they are afraid that Kiev residents will become the vanguard of Maidan-3, which is why the capital is the most protected city in Ukraine, and there are almost no military commissars on the streets.

​  This warning may imply what will happen if the US commits troops to the Ukraine war.

​Spreading The Word

Meaning Of Words


  I saw this yesterday, and really wondered about what it might mean: "Biden Tells Israel To Wrap Up War By January As An Estimated 80% Of Gazans Displaced"
It is clearly​ "public relations", not any kind of ultimatum. As US public opinion swings away from Israeli genocide, Biden gets to pretend to say something that goes along with that, but with a month of delay, and no teeth at all, just words. In a month's time, Bibi Netanyahu can decide to take this option proffered by Biden, or to refuse it, based upon his political needs at that moment. They might run out of bunker buster bombs about then, anyway. Also, little advertised, the Israeli army is taking a lot of armored-equipment losses in Gaza, and troops are getting killed and injured, too. The IDF/IOF is not dominating. Scott Ritter thinks that is why they took the 6 day rest to exchange hostages in a ceasefire.
  So Biden gave Netanyahu a 1 month option to call off the dogs of war with the face-saving excuse of the US forcing him to stop.

​  Despite the soaring civilian deaths in Gaza, the Biden administration is not considering using any of the leverage it has over Israel to get the Israeli military to change its tactics,
Reuters reported on Tuesday.
​  US officials say they’re expressing concern privately and claim Israel is listening, but the current campaign in south Gaza, where there are millions of displaced civilians, is no less brutal than Israeli operations in the north.

They plan for an international force in the immediate aftermath of the war, followed by a "revamped" Palestinian Authority taking over administration of Gaza in the long term.

​  Gilbert Doctorow updates on Russian TV news and other insights.
​  Russian news sources highlighted the fact that during the entire flight from Moscow to Abu Dhabi the Russian president’s equivalent to Air Force One was accompanied by a number of SU35S air defense fighter jets in close formation, said to be just a few meters from one another.  The unstated logic is that this was done to protect Putin from any ground to air missile that ‘you know who’ might have been thinking of firing on his plane to accomplish the long sought regime change in Russia.  The skills of the Russian pilots and of their equipment was said to have produced an appropriate positive impression on emirate officials, which is entirely in keeping with one of the objectives of Putin’s visit: to promote Russia as a ‘security provider,’ meaning seller of latest generation military hardware that has proven its merits in the ongoing Ukraine war.​..
..Putin used his time in the public introductory remarks before the parties went into closed meetings to say that the UAE is Russia’s largest trading partner in the Arab world, with trading volumes that rose 67% in 2022 to reach 9 billion dollars and which continue to rise apace in 2023...​ There are ongoing talks between the parties about possible purchase of Russian small scale nuclear reactors. There are joint investments, particularly by the UAE in Russian infrastructure projects such as the latest world class Russian intercity federal highways.
​  The UAE dirham is now used by Moscow in some international trades.  We may assume that this vector will continue to develop given the presence in Putin’s delegation of Russian Central Bank president Elvira Nabiulina.  Nabiulina almost never travels with the President, so there must have been some very important business to do in the area of her competence.​..

..There was an exchange of information about the ongoing Gaza war and the Ukraine war. There was surely also talk about what the agenda topics will be for BRICS, which the United Arab Emirates joins as a full member in January. Russia will be the host nation and the sessions will be held in Kazan, one of Russia’s main oil-producing regions and the de facto capital of Russia’s Muslim population...
..Russian news has been more sparing in the coverage of Putin’s visit to Saudi Arabia, though the video showing Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman seeing Putin off in his Aurus limousine following their meeting, with the Crown Prince putting his hand to his heart as a farewell gesture spoke volumes.  Here, the continued joint management of OPEC+ production levels would have figured high in the talks, and for this purpose the presence of Russian deputy prime minister Alexander Novak, long time Russian Minister of Energy, would have been useful. Otherwise, the talks surely addressed security issues in the region and possible common action on the Gaza war. In addition, there would surely be discussion of the objectives for BRICS in 2024.​..
..I was asked about the significance of the vote in the U.S. Senate blocking the bill introduced by the Biden Administration to appropriate more than 100 billion dollars in financial and military aid to Ukraine and Israel.
​  The program hosts put on air a segment from President Biden’s speech calling upon Congress to approve the bill, lest the Ukrainian war efforts be allowed to fail and the road be opened for Putin to move on to Europe and continue his aggression into NATO countries. This and the related question posed to me provided an excellent opportunity to put forward a contrary view of what the Administration is now up to, namely that Biden has intentionally allowed the Senate to veto his bill by holding back the concession that could have given him the approval of funding for Ukraine that he says he wants.  The obstacle was the Senate Republicans’ demand that appropriate funding be included in the bill to strengthen U.S. border defense against illegal immigration across the Mexican border.  Biden did nothing, which suggests that what we are seeing already is the start of the blame game over who lost Ukraine, the Republicans in Congress or the Democratic Administration.

​  John Helmer sees the global diamond trade, currently in a sharp downturn, dividing into 2 blocs, similar to what happened with the Russian oil embargo. Will that really happen? Russian diamonds currently go to India for cutting, and are sold-on from there. Might Russian diamonds be smuggled to Tel Aviv and Amsterdam as easily as Russian oil is now smuggled to China and India? 
​  Meeting together last month in Zimbabwe in what is called the Kimberley Process (KP), the 57-member states  refused to agree to the US and European Union (EU) attempt to exclude Russia, producer of half the diamonds in global trade. To camouflage the outcome of the fight, the KP delegates decided not to issue a communiqué...
​..Russian diamond expert Sergei Goryainov warns that Rapaport and the Israelis are miscalculating if they expect the new sanctions to raise diamond prices and their profits to grow. The reverse will happen, according to Goryainov. “Due to sanctions on the largest producer, 30% of the diamond market is going to enter the ‘gray zone’. You can also figure that Alrosa will be forced to dump, because only by introducing dumping prices can you  compensate for the risks which customers who cooperate with a company listed in the SDN-list fall under.”
​  Other Moscow sources agree that dumping will be a Russian tactic for the very short term, as it has been in the Russian oil export trade. In that case, the discounts have gradually dwindled as the ineffectiveness of the sanctions became obvious and demand has pushed the commodity price upward.

​  Elon Musk took another shot at Disney CEO Bob Iger Thursday, after the state of New Mexico sued Meta for allegedly enabling child sexual abuse and trafficking - yet Disney and other woke advertisers, who paused advertising on X in a kneejerk reaction to claims of antisemitism - apparently have no problem when it comes to the sexual exploitation of minors...

Meta knowingly exposes children to the twin dangers of sexual exploitation and mental health harm. Meta’s conduct has turned New Mexico children who are on its platforms into victims. Meta’s motive for doing so is profit."

​  39-year-old Canadian Pilot Dan Boken (Training to Become Boeing 737 Captain at Canadian North) Was Killed by COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates
20 Pilot Injuries and Deaths in 2022
​  June 23, 2022 – I unplugged my 39-year-old husband, Dan Boken, from life support. It was the worst day of my life.
We were a happy family of four, torn into a thousand pieces in an instant. The nine long months leading up to that night felt like I was in an abyss...
​..I waited patiently for 14 months after, for his final autopsy report. Once received, I noticed that they had changed his cause of death from a brain bleed, to COVID-19. His vaccination status wasn’t even mentioned in the report, despite that fact that the injury was officially reported by two separate doctors to Ottawa Public Health.
​  I was suspicious, and that led me to get a second opinion from an experienced Pathologist. I knew something was off. He reviewed Dan’s entire medical history as well as the autopsy and confirmed what I already knew. The vaccine was a contraindication to Dan’s Crohn’s disease, and was the reason he initially became so ill.
​  I’ve struggled to talk about this because I knew it would be censored. I didn’t want to be attacked or ridiculed for sharing the truth about what happened because it might go against the beliefs of others. I’m at the point now where I don’t care what people say. I know what happened and the truth must come out. For Dan’s sake.

Momentum Builds Against WHO’s Pandemic Treaty Power Grab​  
[Don't take your eyes off of this one-world-government scheme.]

​  Meryl Nass MD , Controversies regarding the legal regime that underpins the WHO's power grab are good. There seem to be many.
​  They undermine the authority the WHO is trying to usurp. For example, see Article 62 of the 2005 IHR
​  Furthermore, on Nov 28 a group of MPs gave Tedros 2 days to show the proof that the full World Health Assembly did vote on the 2022 amendments. He failed to provide such proof. Thus, the vote, errr, consent procedure within a subcommittee was probably invalid, and the MPs have so deemed it NULL and VOID.

​  The Polish central bank has bought roughly 300 tonnes of gold in recent years to bring its gold to GDP ratio in line with the average in the eurozone. For medium and large economies in the eurozone, to which Poland might be included in the future, an equal monetary gold to GDP ratio is a covert requirement for nations to be prepared for a shift to a new gold standard. Based on these requirements I expect Poland to buy an additional 130 tonnes of gold.

Where Is Home


  Israelis Harvest Human Organs from Massacred Palestinians
Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor denounced many War Crimes under the ICC Prosecutor’s Nose
  Concerns about organ theft from the corpses were brought up by Euro-Med Monitor, which cited reports from medical professionals in Gaza who quickly examined a few bodies after their release. These medical professionals found evidence of organ theft, including missing cochleas and corneas as well as other vital organs like livers, kidneys, and hearts.

  Netanyahu Accuses The Entire World of Anti-Semitism
  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday accused the entire world of anti-Semitism for staying "silent" on Israel's unproven claim that Hamas committed "mass rapes" on an unprecedented scale on Oct 7.

  A story of displacement and the loss of my homeland
  Our Nakba is being recorded by us in real-time for the entire world to see. Everyone can witness our slaughter and collective death. Our simple dream has been destroyed by Israel, for no greater sin than being born under occupation.

  Jonathan Cook ,  Israel-Palestine war: How Israel uses AI genocide programme to obliterate Gaza
  Now Israeli whistleblowers have provided details of how these crimes against humanity are being carried out - and how they are being rationalised internally within Israel’s military and political echelons...
..The whistleblowers confirm that, given new, generous parameters of who and what can be attacked, the artificial intelligence system, called “Gospel”, is generating lists of targets so rapidly the military cannot keep up.
  Israel’s inputs are now so broad that they allow the bombing without warning of high-rise apartment blocks, so long as it can be claimed that one person residing there is believed to have a connection to Hamas...
..Perhaps the most significant of the disclosures from current and former Israeli officials who have spoken to 972 and Local Call is the fact that Israel is aware its many thousands of air strikes on Gaza’s residential areas are having a minimal impact on the armed wing of Hamas.
  This contrasts with public declarations that Israel is seeking to eradicate the group.
  Even according to the Israeli military’s own claims, likely based on the new, much broader definition of who counts as a Hamas target, Israel has killed between 1,000 and 3,000 “operatives” - meaning that, even by Israel’s assessment, civilians comprise between 85 and 95 per cent of those dead from its bombing campaigns...
..Israel is continuing long-standing military policies towards Gaza - principally the so-called Dahiya doctrine, sometimes known as “mowing the lawn” - but has changed the focus to allow for far greater bloodshed among civilians.
  The doctrine, which has guided Israel’s repeated attacks on Gaza over the last 15 years, is named after the destruction of an entire neighbourhood of Beirut in Israel’s war on Lebanon in 2006.
  The doctrine has two key premises: that laying waste to an enemy area will force the population to concentrate on basic survival rather than resistance; and in the longer term it will encourage ordinary people to rise up against their rulers...
..A source explained the effects of the new policy to 972: “The numbers increased from dozens of civilian deaths [permitted] as collateral damage as part of an attack on a senior [Hamas] official in previous operations, to hundreds of civilian deaths as collateral damage.”...
..“Hamas is everywhere in Gaza; there is no building that does not have something of Hamas in it, so if you want to find a way to turn a high-rise into a target, you will be able to do so.” ...
..Referring to the high death toll among civilians, another source stated: “Everything is intentional. We know exactly how much collateral damage there is in every home.”...One noted: “Hamas members who don’t really matter for anything live in homes across Gaza. So they mark the home and bomb the house and kill everyone there.”...
..Another stated that Israel’s aim was to inflict maximum damage rather than hit the part of the building associated with Hamas. “It was also possible to hit that specific target with more accurate weaponry. The bottom line is that they knocked down a high-rise for the sake of knocking down a high-rise.”...
..Netanyahu is reported to believe that, after the world has accepted millions of refugees displaced from Iraq, Syria and Ukraine, why should Gaza be different?
  The plan envisions Palestinians leaving Gaza across the border with Egypt or fleeing by boat to Europe and Africa...
..And yet western politicians and media continue maintaining the fiction that Israel’s objectives are limited to “eliminating” Hamas - and that the only legitimate question is whether Israel is acting “proportionately”.
  This wholesale failure to see the forest for the trees is not accidental. It is evidence that western elites are wholly complicit in Israel’s expulsion of Palestinians from Gaza.

  Sanders the mensch breaks ranks:  Bernie Sanders opposes $10 billion Israel aid
The progressive US senator condemned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for “violating international law”

  For Netanyahu and his political allies, peace is more dangerous than war
Israeli public opinion has turned against both Israel's prime minister and Bezalel Smotrich, his main coalition partner on the extreme right. But they won't give up on their dream of a new Nakba easily
  The Israeli public wants vengeance, and they still do not feel that they have had it.
Faced with the blunt choice of a further exchange of hostages and prisoners and returning to the ground offensive, the war cabinet decisively chose war.
  If the war cabinet is a long way from recognising what everyone outside Israel is telling them - that Hamas cannot be fully defeated - there is now a growing new realisation in Israel, maybe even within the army and certainly among commentators, that Hamas is far from being beaten...
..After the truce broke down, and hostages who came back reported that Israel's bombing put their lives in danger, the pressure from the relatives only mounted.
  The most likely scenario is that Israel lurches between periods of war and pauses in the fighting, without being capable of finishing either...
..Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s problems have only just started. Today he is probably Israel’s most hated man...
..But if the war ends without a new Nakba, their dream will remain unfulfilled and they know this. Ben Gvir already said:” No war, no government.”
In other words, a permanent ceasefire would be the end of the government. It is clear that the current government would not survive a deal with Hamas, in which all Palestinian prisoners were released in exchange for all the hostages...
..They waited a long time for their moment in history. They are not going to let their life-long dream slip from their grasp that easily. A return to Gantz and talk of a two-state solution? Over their dead bodies, and the bodies of thousands of Palestinians and Israelis.
  This doesn't mean it won't happen in the end, and that the war will go on for ever. It only explains how high are the stakes for Netanyahu and his partners.

  Israel can’t defeat Hamas in battle, so what’s next?  All the conflict in Gaza is achieving is civilian misery, and the US can stop it at any time ("could stop it" if political-will)
  According to Israeli polling data, Benjamin Netanyahu is only trusted by 4% of Israelis, while the most trusted national figure was recorded to be Israeli military spokesperson Daniel Hagari. Hagari, despite being trusted by Israelis, was turned into the “there is a list guy” and an online meme, after presenting a video in which he claimed a regular Arabic calendar named “terrorists”...
..Israeli civilian captives who were released, the majority of whom were filmed smiling, shaking the hands of and thanking Hamas fighters upon their releases, have been blocked from speaking to the media about their experiences directly. On the other hand, Palestinian women and children recounted abuse, torture and humiliation that they had suffered at the hands of their Israeli jailers...
..There can be no military solution to the war in Gaza, the US must (and does) recognise that this conflict will never end until the Palestinian people are granted justice and freedom...

  The  Israeli army can do this, and it will kill some Israeli military hostages, and some Hamas personnel. It won't get to all the tunnels, and the ones it will get to will be evacuated when the hoses get pulled up to them. It may contaminate the aquifer and salt-the-ground, though.
Israel Readying Risky Plan To Flood Miles Of Gaza's 'Terror Tunnels' With Sea Water

  WHO: Situation in Gaza is “getting worse” every hour
  Khan Yunis Governorate was subjected to one of the heaviest aerial and artillery bombardment campaigns since the outbreak of the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip two months ago. Many civilians fled their homes and even schools, where they had taken refuge earlier in the war, as the bombing intensified.
  The bombing consisted of fire belts, which consisted of bombing a specific area with a large number of missiles and bombs.

  How long before they would even notice being "sanctioned"? White House Sanctions Israeli Settlers For 1st Time Since Clinton Administration
  Axios reporting on Tuesday has cited government officials who specify that multiple dozens of known Israeli settlers will be impacted by the visa ban, expected to be implemented by the State Department...
  Regional sources say that since Oct.7 more than 250 Palestinians have been killed in the West Bank - mostly in army raids and clashes with Israeli security forces, but also as a result of settler violence.
  Axios has noted that since the conflict's start there's been "a spike in the number of attacks by settlers against Palestinians."

  45 Palestinians killed, dozens wounded in Zionist bombing of house in Deir al-Balah
  The Red Crescent in Gaza confirmed earlier today that the entire Strip was subjected to a comprehensive war of extermination, affirming that “the Israeli enemy army asks residents to go to certain areas and then bombs them.”

  Hamas Rocket Struck Base Linked To Israel's (Not So Secret) Nuclear Missile Program
  "A rocket most likely fired by Hamas militants during their Oct. 7 attack on Israel struck an Israeli military base where, experts say, many of the country’s nuclear-capable missiles are based, according to a visual analysis of the attack’s aftermath by The New York Times."...
..The fresh Monday report noted, "The Times first identified the fire caused by the attack on Sdot Micha using public NASA satellite imagery for detecting wildfires. There has not been a fire — from any cause — of similar magnitude at the base since at least 2004."
  Now, about two months out from the devastating Hamas terror raids of Oct.7, more and more shocking details from that day have been revealed which increasingly confirms the significant planning and sophistication of the multi-pronged attack. More and more pressure and public outrage has been directed at the Netanyahu government and military establishment for the unprecedented intelligence failures.
  This has also included that revelation that "Israeli officials obtained Hamas’s battle plan for the Oct. 7 terrorist attack more than a year before it happened, documents, emails and interviews show," as a separate NYT report detailed. "But Israeli military and intelligence officials dismissed the plan as aspirational, considering it too difficult for Hamas to carry out."  
[or they pretended to think that, and planned how to use the attack to their political advantage.]

Israel Has Crossed Its Rubicon
  De facto, Gaza has been been ethnically cleansed. Gazans have been herded from the north, which has been flattened, to the south, against which IDF airstrike targeters and ground forces have recently turned their attention. The vast majority of the population of Gaza is now massed a few miles away from the Rafah border crossing to the Sinai Peninsula. All that remains is for the Israelis to expel the traumatized and radicalized Palestinians into the Egyptian desert.
  More likely, Israel will open the gate. The Gazans enter the Sinai of their own accord. Where else can they go? There is no home to which they can return. This second Nakba will occur early next year.
  Which will leave the ruins of Gaza desolate and dangerous. Spurred by legitimate public-health concerns, Israeli bulldozers will cart away the rubble and the tens of thousands of rotting corpses trapped underneath. Demining experts will have to find and disarm tens of thousands of unexploded bombs, a process that can require decades.
  The end result: 141 square miles of prime beachfront property.

  US border control bill collapses Senate negotiations on immigration have fallen through, threatening to derail President Biden’s aid package for Israel and Ukraine
  The Republican Party has for weeks been threatening to block Biden’s $106 billion ‘national security supplemental request,’ originally introduced in October, unless it included a spending boost for the US-Mexico border and tighter immigration controls, particularly with regards to asylum and parole laws in immigration proceedings.
  GOP lawmakers have proposed detaining all migrants seeking asylum in the US upon entry instead of releasing them into the country while their claims are processed, as is currently the case.
  Republican lawmakers have argued that the existing system is constantly being abused as it allows migrants to slip through the cracks.
Democrats, however, have called these demands “extremist,” prompting negotiations to effectively break down, with both parties accusing each other of intractable positions.

  Moon of Alabama , U.S. Is Withholding Aid To Push Ukraine Towards Negotiations With Russia
  Republicans as well as the Democrats, likely in consent with the White House, have so far blocked all further aid.
There current path then seems to be a different one towards negotiations with Russia - regime change in Kiev.
  President Zelenski is unwilling to take up peace talks. If he can be pushed out of office during the next few months his likely replacement, General Zaluzny, will probably be more inclined to seek an end of the war.
  Thus the current tactic is to pressure Zelenski into leaving by withholding all future funds. If another Ukrainian leader comes in, aid might again flow to prevent a total takeover of the country by Russia.

  The Justice Department delayed its investigation into Biden, worked to remove Biden’s name from search warrants and subpoenas, restricted investigators from asking witnesses about US President Joe Biden during interviews and tipped off defense attorneys about their investigation, the report said.

​  Hero Health Worker Turned Whistleblower Faces Court After He Exposes Shocking Number of Deaths Linked to COVID Vaccine — Shouts “FREEDOM” to Supporters in the Gallery
  A 56-year-old employee-turned-whistleblower of Te Whatu Ora, New Zealand’s public health agency, was targeted by police raids.
​  The whistleblower was arrested Sunday afternoon for his alleged involvement in the “unauthorized disclosure and misuse of data,” according to police reports.
The police disclosed that the whistleblower’s true identity is Barry Young.
​  Young, responsible for managing New Zealand’s COVID-19 vaccination database, has come forward with alarming data regarding excess deaths that he claims are connected to specific batches of the Pfizer vaccine.
​  He played a key role in developing a project that established a vaccine payment system for providers, known as the pay-per-dose system. Under this system, providers receive a payment each time a vaccination is administered. As part of his responsibilities, he analyzed the data and noticed inconsistencies.​..
​..“I was involved with building a project and helped with implementing a vaccine payment system for our providers. It’s called a pay-per-dose system. So that means that every time someone gets vaccinated, they get a payment for it as a provider. And I helped build it, I implemented it. And when I was looking at the data, which is part of my job, I noticed some discrepancies with the dates of death, people getting people dying within a week of being vaccinated,” Young said.
​  “As soon as the system went live, we noticed that people were dying almost straight away after being injected. So, that sort of prompted my curiosity a bit. So, I dug a little deeper,” he added.
​  “This cannot be a natural event. This is man-made,” Young argued, adding, “If it’s happening here, guarantee it’s happening everywhere, and we need more people like me to stand up and just come out. Don’t be scared, just do it.”

​  Don’t Let Government Get Away With Poisoning Americans
​  For decades, the federal government poisoned an untold number of its citizens through our atomic program. It happened everywhere, impacting uranium mine workers in Texas, Native Americans living downwind from nuclear tests in the Mountain West, and communities exposed to Manhattan Project waste in Missouri. And that’s just a small sample. Thousands more were poisoned, sickened, and died. Lives were broken – all because our government was careless, and then covered it up.
​  Now, the law that delivers some justice and compensation to these victims is about to expire. Congress must include a reauthorization of this life-changing program as part of the annual defense bill. It’s our chance to give justice to victims who have been silenced and forgotten for years.

​  Thanks Red , Capitalism Cannot Turn Into Anything But Autocracy…only to disintegrate altogether soon after
​  Capitalism has come about as a natural response to technology use and a temporary abundance of raw materials. It was simply the most effective way of plundering the planet, and thus won hands down every time it was contested. Even its much ballyhooed challengers were built upon its core principles. They way how returns are distributed or who makes owns the productive assets, of course, can be greatly different, resulting in a lower or higher inequality in society. Irrespective of wealth distribution and questions of ownership, however, the essence of every large scale industrial system remained inherently autocratic. As long as the resources for building technological devices (be it sailboats, steam engines, solar panels or Bitcoin) must be expropriated and extracted to exhaustion, the system will remain the same.
​  Since the economy, no matter how we name it, is only interested in making a net return on investment, not in the health or well being of humans and the more than human world, it will eventually turn on its own population as its resource base wanes. As long as everything, from raw material to labor, could have been extracted far away from the “bastions of democracy”, people at home were allowed to be free, but only as far as not to hurt business interests. This gave the illusion of progress, or a better life through technology, together with better health, care for the young and elderly or rights for minorities.
​  As resources grew thinner and thinner, yielding less and less profits though, the system has started to show its real face: autocracy. Modern democracies across the planet have started to turn into a local variant of a soft or inverted totalitarianism. A political arrangement in which corporations exert a subtle but substantial power over a system that superficially seems democratic. Think: corporate donors writing laws, often against the interests of the voters. A complete take-over of the media and the civic discourse. Shutting down dissent and labeling everything but the mainstream narrative dangerous misinformation. Freedom and democracy proved to be nothing but a brief anomaly in this inherently inhumane system arching back to the emergence of the first empires.
​  Soon, as the debt based everything bubble bursts, governments around the world will have no other choice than to take complete control over the money system, even if it means banning every other form of exchange (bitcoin, gold, or something as simple as cash). By controlling what money can be spent on (and for how long by giving it an expiry date) central governments will have a chance at managing the economic descent downstream from a steady decline in energy production.
​  Repossessing homes of people unable to pay their debts and turning them into tenants, for example, seems to be another way how the financial superorganism might try to hold on to profitability. You will own less (and less) and be… “happy”. A modest, low energy, low consumption life will be marketed as “green and sustainable” to somehow take the edge of the situation and make acceptance easier. Make no mistake, I do think that lowering consumption is the only way out, but only if everybody does it in a concerted manner. As John Kenneth Galbraith astutely observed, however:
​  “People of privilege will always risk their complete destruction rather than surrender any material part of their advantage. Intellectual myopia, often called stupidity, is no doubt a reason. But the privileged also feel that their privileges, however egregious they may seem to others, are a solemn, basic, God-given right.”

​  The ruling class is thus not at all interested in creating a more sustainable system. They have a different motive: staying on top, no matter what. Thus they will take every opportunity during this long emergency to concentrate power, to squeeze out political opponents while trying to maintain the flow of profits to an ever smaller round of donors. ​  Again, a system entirely dependent on autocratic technologies cannot evolve into anything else than an Orwellian dystopia.​..
..Moving towards an ever more digitalized (digital ID, digital currency, digital shopping) world is thus an incredibly short sighted way to maintain power. As the electric grid starts to fail in many places (due to a lack of fossil fuel inputs), these autocratic systems will be harder and harder to maintain...
..At this point the current centralized capitalist system will vanish sooner than one could imagine. Political power will fall back to the lowest level possible (municipalities) and real world skills will once again become respectful means of earning an income. The world will become ever more localized, and people will be forced to rely on manual labor to survive.
