God Of Love Or Genocide

 Seeking Truth,

  Simplicius ,  World Plummets into Eschatological Frenzy: Unraveling the Implications
  Netanyahu keeps referring to biblical prophecies on his press conferences:
​  " You must remember what Amalek has done to you, says our Holy Bible, and we do remember and we are fighting. Our heroes who fight in Gaza continue a dynasty of heroes that goes back 3000 years in history - from Joshua to the heroes of 1948, from the Six Day War to the Yom Kippur War and all other wars."
​  The words about Amalek are taken from the 1st Book of Samuel: “Thus says the Lord of hosts: I have remembered what Amalek did to Israel, how he opposed him on the way when he came out of Egypt” (15:2). The Lord ordered King Saul to destroy the enemy and all his people: “Now go and defeat Amalek and destroy all that he has; and give him no mercy; but put to death both husband and wife; from youth to infant; from ox to sheep; from camel to donkey" (15:3).
​  Netanyahu feels himself a new Messiah with the divine right of exterminating all enemies of the chosen people.​..
​..Sensing the West’s hesitancy and weakness, Israel may attempt to desperately spark a wider conflagration by increasing the amplitude of their falseflags—perhaps another USS Liberty-like incident or unilateral strikes on Iran meant to goad them into a response that would necessarily trigger a U.S. intervention. It’s my belief that this will be the chief danger to watch as, gripped by the terminal phase of its eschatological madness, Israel will be at its most unpredictable and dangerous to humanity at large.

Targeting Palestinian Civilians​:
As of Saturday morning October 28,  Israel’s genocidal attacks on Gaza have killed more than 7,300 Palestinians including about 3,000 children according to Al Jazeera.
Another 1,650 Palestinians are trapped under the demolished remains of their homes and buildings destroyed by Israeli bombing, with half of them being children.
This is an Israeli war which specifically targets Palestinian civilians especially children as the IDF has bombed:
mosques and churches,
homes, residential areas, apartment buildings,

More Children Killed in Gaza in Three Weeks Than in Wars Worldwide Since 2019

  ​"Genocide" is the legal term: 
  A leaked document from the Israeli Ministry of Intelligence to an Israeli news site on Monday lays out a plan to transfer more than 2 million Palestinians from Gaza to Egypt’s Sinai desert, reports Joe Lauria.
​  The document from the Ministry of Intelligence is being downplayed by Israeli officials, who are saying it is not being actively considered while the ground operation is underway.  The document was first published in Hebrew by the news website Sicha Mekomit. The article’s blurb says:
​  “A document on behalf of the Ministry of Intelligence, the full content of which is published here for the first time, recommends the forced transfer of the population of the Gaza Strip to Sinai permanently, and calls for the international community to be harnessed for the move. The document also suggests promoting a ‘dedicated campaign’ for the residents of Gaza that will ‘motivate them to agree to the plan.'”

​  'We Need to Stop This Whiny Behavior. We Need to Win The War': Netanyahu 'Used Plant to Influence Families of Kidnapped Israelis'
​  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been accused of planting unverified, fake relatives in a meeting with the families of hostages taken by Hamas to tell them "we need to stop this whiny behavior" because "we need to win this war."

White House seeks funding for Israeli plan to ethnically cleanse Gaza
The 20 October supplemental funding request includes funds to support Israel's plan to forcibly expel Gaza's 2.3 million residents to Egypt's Sinai Peninsula

​  Vice President Harris assured on Sunday that the US is only providing equipment, advice and diplomatic assistance to Tel Aviv, and that US troops will not be deployed in Israel or Gaza. Her comments clash with a slew of media reports suggesting otherwise.
US troops are directly involved in fighting in Gaza, says Salman al-Harfi, Palestine’s former ambassador to France.

​  The Pentagon awarded a multimillion-dollar contract to construct U.S. army facilities for a covert base it maintains deep within Israel’s Negev desert, only 20 miles from Gaza, two months prior to Hamas’ onslaught on Israel. The venerable American installation, known by its code name “Site 512,” is a radar station that keeps an eye out for any missile assaults on Israel.
​  Since Site 512 is aimed toward Iran, which is located more than 700 miles distant, it was unable to observe anything on October 7, despite thousands of Hamas rockets being launched.
[Yeah, billions of dollars and the radar can't see anything 20 miles "to the rear", right.]​ 
  At Site 512, a classified base atop Mt. Har Qeren in the Negev, the U.S. Army is discreetly advancing construction to incorporate what official documents refer to as a “life support facility,” which is military jargon for buildings that resemble quarters for people.​  [B​arracks?​ Mess-hall?

​  Israel-Hamas war a conflict between ‘civilization and savagery’ – Trump​    (No ​POTUS-candidate for peace or cease-fire, as far as the eye can see.​)
​  Former US President Donald Trump has condemned Hamas as “monsters,” framing the Palestinian militant group’s war with Israel as a conflict between “good and evil” and vowing to rid America of immigrants and foreign students who sympathize with jihadists.
​  Speaking on Saturday at the Republican Jewish Coalition summit in Las Vegas, Trump vowed to stop the “mass importation of anti-Semitism” into the US if he’s re-elected as president in 2024. He blamed Hamas for all of the deaths that have occurred on both sides – numbering over 1,400 in Israel and 8,000 in Gaza – since the group’s October 7 attacks on Israeli villages triggered the region’s latest war.
​  “Every single life that is lost in this conflict is on the shoulders of Hamas, Hamas alone, and I think you have to really add in the word Iran…,” Trump said. “There can be no sympathy, no excuses, and no escape for these monsters. We will do what has to be done.”

​  Turkish President Erdogan sits at the crossroads of shipping and pipelines at the center of the ancient world. He is dealing with a weak currency, a diverse but poor economy, and a slew of neighbors with different interests, while trying to represent all of Islam and all Turkic peoples in the world. He is very short on resources, yet has many options open to him, but he has to choose ONE, and it has to be a winner. He can grandstand for nothing. He has blamed Israel and made-Israel-move-against-Turkey in response. 
This is well-played, building tension; letting opponents move, conserving resources and waiting for an obviously advantaged move to present itself.
​  Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated that attacks on Gaza amounted to a “massacre” and threatened to declare war on Israel...
​  During his speech at a rally this afternoon, Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of war crimes and presented Hamas as “freedom fighters”.
President Erdogan stated that attacks on Gaza amounted to a “massacre,” which infuriated Israel and caused it to rescind its diplomatic mission.
He is claimed to have told the hundreds of thousands of participants that Turkey can “come at any night unexpectedly” during the same speech.​..

​..He asserted that Israel “has been openly committing war crimes for 22 days” and stated that the country was acting with a “similar mentality” to the Axis powers in World War Two.
​  He continued: “In the past they were massacring the Jewish people in the gas chambers and they were indeed wiping out whole regions with bombs.” The Turkish premier then added: “A similar mentality is being shown in Gaza today.”

​  The Turkish hospital in Gaza was subjected on Monday to a direct bombing by the Zionist occupation fighter jets, in a new heinous crime added to the record of the Zionist entity.
​  The Palestinian health authorities in Gaza announced that the Israeli warplanes targeted the Turkish-Palestinian Friendship Hospital for treating cancer patients for the second time.

​Andrew Korybko: Deciphering What Really Happened In Dagestan
  Considering the wide range of objectives that the latest SBU-CIA latest meddling in Russia sought to achieve, it can be concluded that Dagestan is of disproportionate geostrategic importance, and events there can more easily have far-reaching consequences than if they happened elsewhere. The worst-case scenarios were averted by the security forces’ swift intervention, however, which suggests that they’ll also succeed in averting most (if not all) forthcoming ones and thus crush their foes’ Hybrid War plans.

Telegram blocks Ukraine-linked channel inciting violence in Russia​ , ‘Dagestan Morning’ has been blamed for the anti-Jewish riot at Makhachkala airport
​  The screenshots identified the offender as ‘Dagestan Morning’, which has been exposed as a Ukrainian intelligence service project set up to stir ethnic and religious unrest in Russia.
​  A post in the screenshot proclaimed “We hate Jews” and “we will not let them live in Dagestan or the Caucasus,” claiming that “Jewish refugees” bound for the Russian republic were on board the regularly scheduled flight from Tel Aviv to Makhachkala.
​  On Sunday afternoon, over 150 rioters broke onto the runway of the airport in the Dagestani capital and tried to storm the plane. Police were able to restore order after heavy clashes that left more than 20 people – including nine officers – injured. Sixty rioters were arrested.

​  Putin on Situation in Dagestan: US ‘Geopolitical Puppeteers’ Trying to Divide Russia From Within
​  President Vladimir Putin has given his assessment on Sunday's unrest in Dagestan, saying that it was sparked by social media channels linked to Ukraine and Western intelligence services seeking to take advantage of the crisis in the Middle East.
​  "The events in Makhachkala last night were orchestrated, including through social media, not least from the territory of Ukraine. By the hands of Western intelligence agencies," the president said, speaking at a meeting with the heads of Russian law enforcement on Monday.

​  (usually soft-spoken) Gilbert Doctorow:  ‘Financial Times’: the stench of propaganda in today’s coverage of the Makhachkala riots is overwhelming
​  Vladimir Putin has made every effort to ensure that tolerance reigns among the hundreds of ethnic groups and dozens of religious faiths that constitute the Russian Federation. To say otherwise, as Seddon and Ivanova do, is to engage in vile propaganda.
​  Since religious fundamentalism seems to be the order of the day, I will take the plunge and set down my own special prayers:  that these journalists get the company of John Kirby and other U.S. miscreants in the special zone in hell reserved for dishonest fomenters of war.  Oh yes, there surely will be a nearby padded cell for the criminally insane, with reserved places for Bibi Netanyahu and Isaac Herzog. For those who have not been following closely, Herzog also has gone on air denouncing Russia for the Dagestan “pogrom.”

​  Nothing can justify bombardments of civilians in the Gaza Strip, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday.
​  "The horrific developments that are unfolding in the Gaza Strip now, when hundreds of thousands of innocent people, who have nowhere to escape, nowhere to hide from bombardments, are being killed, cannot be justified by anything. When you look at bleeding children, dead children, at how women, elder people are suffering, how medics are dying, one cannot help clenching his fists and van hardly hold back tears," he said.

NOT  IN  OUR  NAME  Declare Jewish Peace Organizations

​  Many Jewish people now turning AGAINST the Israeli government, which they accuse of committing war crimes and genocide
​  Believe it or not, many Jewish people are taking a stand for Gaza rather than their own Israeli government in the ongoing Israeli war on Palestine.
​  One of them is Benjy Sherer, a Jewish young man who helps people deal with and overcome trauma and pain, and who also says he does not stand with Israel on this matter because his heart is with the people of Gaza who now face genocide at the hands of Israel and the West.
​  "I do not stand with Israel at all on what's going on," Sherer stated in a recent video he shared to TikTok that is also available for viewing on X – watch below. "And I'm finally starting to realize, for lack of a better term, how brainwashed I've been."
​  As a Jewish man, Sherer was raised and taught to "love Israel." He attended both Jewish elementary and Jewish high school, and was raised with a mindset that Israel, whoever and whatever that actually means in the modern context, is the rightful owner of all that land.

​  Tom Luongo focuses on the International banking "war" between Federal Reserve "interests" and ECB "interests again.
​  I think Powell is in the driver’s seat here. It’s why Mike Johnson being Speaker could be a very good thing. At the very least if he ends Project Ukraine it slows the descent into fiscal madness. If Johnson is serious about single issue spending bills and Congress going back to doing some real horse-trading, we could see a much different 2024 and beyond in the US than just about anyone, including me, could have dreamed of.
​  On the other hand, with this being another front in the war between central banks there are real dangers that leave me very worried about where we’ll be by year end. Hence the real threat any further escalation by Israel in Gaza represents. The US is trying to blame shift like they did after 9/11 to gin up the war they always wanted, this time with Iran playing the part of Iraq.
​  The EC is trying to supplant individual sovereign bonds with their own bonds. They have to get the next round of fiscal integration going this winter or lose the race for global capital to the US and/or China. If they pull it off — which I suspect they have no choice but to — it’s a signal the are trying to outlast Powell in the hope that they can present a unified front to European investors long enough for the US economy to implode while also hoping the Israeli Firsters in Congress ensure that the US goes to open war with someone… anyone … somewhere! Dammit!

​  Mexican cartel members cut the border wall in several places here in Lukeville, Arizona, last night. They’ve been cutting the wall almost daily to get people through illegally.
Around midnight on Saturday, the final waves for the day came through (I counted 9 as I tried to sleep)...

​  I'm exhausted from filming all day yesterday and doing an almost 7-hour livestream, but I wanted to get out some photos before the videos, which I’ll be putting together into montages...
​..Border agents had to move massive numbers of illegal aliens, many from Syria and Africa, but from India and other countries as well. It was surreal. Like out of an apocalyptic movie.

The Veil of Silence over Excess Deaths
​  On October 20th, a 30-minute adjourned debate (20 rejections later) on excess deaths in the UK House of Commons was finally secured by Andrew Bridgen, MP for North West Leicestershire and member of the Reclaim Party.
​  Bridgen began his speech to the sound of erupting cheers from the full, upper public gallery, in stark contrast to the almost empty chamber below.
​  Where were the hundreds of MPs who would normally sit shoulder to shoulder in the chamber? It appears, an increase in deaths of their constituents was not a pressing issue for them on that Friday afternoon.

Better Facts

 Data Constrained,

  This "rumor" refuses to go away, and I have it substantiated by a source with regional NATO ties. The US is deep and dirty in the tepid invasion of Gaza and is taking losses on the outskirts of the fortified areas. This is more than "supporting Israel". This is dead American soldiers, soon to need explaining.
​  Hamas Warns U.S. ‘Entering the Battle’ in Gaza as 5000 American Troops Participate in New Offensives
  The U.S. Military has deployed 5000 personnel to participate in Israeli operations in Gaza against local militia groups, according to reports from a number of Middle Eastern media sources. This has coincided with the announcement that the Israeli military had expanded its ground operations in Gaza following initial setbacks and the loss of armoured vehicles to the Hamas militia’s heavy weapons. As Israeli political leaders have increasingly warned of a long war, Iranian sources claimed the new offensives were intended “to split the Gaza Strip into two or three sections and cut off the connection among the Palestinian resistance forces before launching the next stage of the war.” These reports follow a statement from retired U.S. Army Colonel Douglas MacGregor on October 25 that preceding Israeli special forces raids into Gaza had been accompanied by American special forces. “In the last 24 hours or so, some of our Special Ops forces and Israeli Special Ops forces went into Gaza to reconnoiter, to plan for where they might want to go to free hostages and make an impact, and they were shot to pieces and took heavy losses, as I understand it,” he stated.
​  Member of the Hamas political leadership Ali Barakeh indicated that the party perceived the United States as becoming increasingly heavily involved in the Israeli war effort, stating that the Palestinian political group: “didn’t expect this much of a response” from Washington. “An Israeli response? Yes, we expected that... But what we’re seeing now is the entrance of the U.S. into the battle, and this we didn’t count on.” Although not confirming its operations in Gaza, the U.S. has moved to expand military facilities in Israel, struck Hamas aligned forces in Syria and Iraq, and massively escalated its military presence in the region while replenishing Israeli military stocks. America’s NATO ally Turkey has also seen jihadist militia groups under its influence such as the Al Nusra front escalate attacks on Hamas’ ally Syria, diverting attention away from the Israeli front.​  (Two-faced Turkey?)
​  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on October 28 that regarding military operations “we are only at the beginning of the road. The battle within the Gaza Strip will be difficult and long.” With Israeli forces losing significant quantities of equipment in the conflict’s initial days, Hamas forces have shown levels of military competence far greater than in previous conflicts raising speculation regarding possible high level training from Hezbollah or Iran. While the United States increases arms supplies to Israel, Hamas’ strikes on Israeli armour have been widely reported by Western sources to be making use of North Korean heavy weapons such as rocked propelled grenades and 122mm artillery rounds, some of which have been seized by Israeli forces.

  ​6:26 minute video, Israeli media sourced, rationally explains the specific IDF and police strikes by tanks, aircraft and infantry, at the times and places, which killed and burned at least 122 Israeli civilians, and called airstrikes onto an Israeli military facility, filled with IDF soldiers and Hamas fighters. This was the prevailing theme, to "kill them all", Hamas and hostages together, then blame Hamas for the heavy-weapons devastation, of which Hamas was not capable, armed only with assault rifles and small RPGs.   
The truth about October 7th

  Poison gas is a war crime. What forces have been using poison-gas, Israeli and/or US Special Forces?
​  Al Mayadeen's sources revealed on Sunday that the Israeli Occupation Forces had been deploying poison gas prior to their incursions into the Gaza Strip.
The source explained that the IOF had attempted to penetrate the Gaza Strip four hours after deploying the toxic gas, noting that this strategy was "used in the main areas of operation, specifically in Beit Lahia and Beit Hanoun [Gaza]."
  This comes after Al Mayadeen's correspondent in Gaza reported that an Israeli infantry unit fell into an ambush set up by the Resistance in Soufa.

Israel demands journalists leave the northern Gaza Strip​ ​ (especially the journalists reporting these stories).

​Gilbert Doctorow: Update , Israel-Hamas War
​  With a gentle nudge from WION, the Indian global broadcaster, who requested an interview early this morning, I found several of the latest developments in the Mideast conflict worthy of the close attention of Russia watchers and of the wider international community. I used the interview to mention these as you will find once the link is posted below.
​  In particular, I pointed to the number one news item in Russia today: the restoration of air services at the Makhachkala airport in Dagestan, a region of the Russian Federation just north of the Caucasus which has an overwhelmingly Muslim population, but also a noteworthy minority of some 30,000 Jews, mostly concentrated in the ancient city of Derbent where a Jewish community has existed since the early days of the diaspora many centuries ago. The airport was closed following a mob attack on a just landed plane from Tel Aviv, with which Dagestan has regular direct flights. They were looking for Israeli passport holders and Jews, whom they wrongly believed would be settled in Dagestan, against their wishes.  The mob clashed with airport workers and law enforcement officers before being arrested and taken away.
​  This ugly development underscored the importance of an unrelated meeting by President Putin yesterday with the heads of all the officially recognized religions in the Russian Federation. He issued a call for mutual respect and for multi-national, multi-confessional solidarity of Russia today in the face of the provocations coming from the Middle East. For reasons of domestic peace, Russia is observing neutrality in the Hamas-Israel conflict.
​  As I mention in the interview, the tensions generated by Israel’s ongoing atrocities in Gaza may inflame ethnic and religious disturbances in all countries where there are mixed populations.​..
​..I use this occasion to praise UN General Secretary Antonio Gutteres for his bold criticism directed against the Israeli authorities for the suffering they inflicted on the Palestinians during their decades-long occupation of their lands, and for repeat calls to restore deliveries of food, water and fuel to the Gaza. We have not witnessed such a stand against the United States-led Collective West since the days of Dag Hammarskjold and we all know where Hammarskjold’s courage got him.

​  Military Summary reports that Ukrainian intelligence forces dominated local media in Dagastan, spreading reports to the conservative-Muslim citizens, including Palestinian refugees, that Israeli Jews were being brought in to settle Dagastan at the expense of locals. Violence at the airport ensued.

  ​John Helmer, When the Devil Drives
​  In the war at this stage, the Israeli-American force for genocidal killing and displacement of the Palestinians of Gaza appears to be winning. Not on the ground so much as in the consent of their western allies to supply the logistics, pay the bills, and endorse the morality of the crimes​...  
​..In the Gaza operations so far, and in the ideology which Israeli officials and journalists are repeating to the western media, the devil aims to drive every Palestinian, the born and the as yet unborn, to death.  In such a war the first need for Hamas and the Arabs is to survive in order to keep fighting...
​..In practical politics, Israel and the US either win their genocidal war swiftly now, or else they will lose the long war. Russian military sources are reporting the US is resupplying the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) at a rate of two US Air Force (USAF) transports every hour, moving from the continental US through bases in the UK, Germany, Italy, Greece, and Cyprus. US sources have acknowledged the logistical effort is too great to continue for long. Right now the US Navy and USAF cannot continue delivering on the promised resupply of the Ukrainian forces in their war against Russia, while at US bases in Syria and Iraq  the Pentagon is privately evacuating troops while publicly striking at their Arab attackers.  
​  The Arab, Iranian, and Russian media are reporting that in response, Hamas and Hezbollah are maintaining a frequent rate of fire against IDF and Israeli territorial targets. They are not yet attacking Israel’s offshore gas production platforms, which provide most of the fuel for the country’s electricity generating plants. They are not yet disabling Israel’s ports and airfields. The Russian military assessment is that for the time being the Hamas and Hezbollah capacity remains intact and in reserve. The Arab side is exercising restraint.​..
​..A Moscow source confirms the US is the priority Russian target because the IDF cannot continue in Gaza as the US capabilities exhaust themselves. He believes that US over-exertion in the Middle East will accelerate the Russian military’s move on to the offensive on the Ukrainian battlefield, and shorten thereby that war. The public statements for mediation between the warring parties issued by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his ministry are not the full Russian story, the source believes...
​..The second priority is to let the Americans demonstrate their weakness across the region by conserving the Palestinians in place, deterring Egyptian and Jordanian concessions, and preventing a direct attack on Iran. “The real Russian position , not the public statements , ultimately comes down to what level of military cooperation the Ministry of Defense has with Teheran. The Syrian and Ukrainian wars have made this very deep. I expect the Foreign Ministry’s public line will change when the Palestinian casualties reach 20,000. As the official Israeli statements against the Russian government already make clear, they know what is going on behind the scenes. It’s not just the Caucasian Muslims now but most Russians feel there’s been enough crying support for Israel. Lavrov will catch up.”
​  “I would say the real work now in Moscow is on ensuring the Americans do not directly attack Iran. The rest is going to play out according to the General Staff’s road map Lavrov could and should have in front of him. Call it the long war for short.”

​  Scott Ritter: (not only) Israel Faces ‘Near Impossible Task’ in Gaza
  Simply trying to navigate the rubble-strewn streets of Gaza will be a nearly impossible task for the Israeli troops. The going will be slow, and the Israeli infantry will have to operate dismounted, exposing themselves to sniper fire and ambushes. Israeli vehicles will find themselves hemmed in without the ability to maneuver, making themselves vulnerable to mines, improvised explosive devices, and anti-tank weaponry. Close air support under these circumstances will be very difficult, effectively neutralizing Israel’s greatest advantage.

​  A US Marine rapid response force is currently heading to the eastern Mediterranean Sea due to concerns about the war in Gaza potentially expanding into a regional war, CNN reported, citing two officials.​  [Trying not to let Israel lose in Occupied Palestine might be a fairer description of their objective.]
​  In recent weeks, the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, on the USS Bataan amphibious assault ship, had been operating in Middle Eastern waters in recent weeks, but it began making its way into the Suez Canal late last week, according to officials.

​  "We refuse the evacuation order. We don't have the means to evacuate. We have 400 patients, many in the intensive care unit, evacuating means killing them," Nebal Farsakh, a PRCS spokesperson, said.
​  The Red Crescent said that since Sunday morning, Israeli raids have targeted areas just 50 metres from the hospital.
"The Israeli army deliberately continues to launch rockets directly near al-Quds hospital with the aim of forcing medical staff, displaced individuals and patients to evacuate the hospital," the medical organisation said in a statement.

​  "About the peaceful citizens that were taken and that are now in Gaza, we treat them as guests," Abu Marzook claimed further. He said of the Russian-Israelis, "We will free them as soon as there will be the conditions."

​  Israel bombing ‘everything but Hamas in Gaza’ – Jackson Hinkle
​  Israel’s claims that it is only bombing Gaza to eliminate Hamas are “insane,” political analyst Jackson Hinkle said in an interview with RT on Thursday. He argued that Israeli forces appear to be focusing on targeting the civilian population of Gaza in their ongoing campaign.
​  “They’ve bombed everything but Hamas inside of Gaza,” the host of ‘The Dive with Jackson Hinkle’ said, accusing Israel of targeting various civilian infrastructure, including hospitals, schools, UN and Red Crescent facilities, mosques, churches, homes, and even evacuee convoys.
​  The analyst suggested that this is because Israel does not want a Palestinian state, and that the true purpose of its operation in Gaza is not to defeat Hamas, but rather to force Palestinians out and take over the enclave “once and for all.”

Health ministry says US administration 'devoid of human standards, morals' for 'shamelessly' questioning validity of figures
Between 7 October and 3pm local time on 26 October, 7,028 Palestinians were killed, including 2,913 children, the report stated.

​  The Israeli military intensified airstrikes in Gaza including near its largest hospital while thousands of people desperate for food and basic items broke into aid warehouses in the besieged enclave.
​  Internet and phone connectivity were restored for many people on Sunday after Israeli strikes had knocked out most communications in the territory late Friday.
​  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday called the 3-week-old Israel-Hamas war a fight for Israel’s existence and said “‘Never again’ is now.” ...
..The Palestinian death toll passed 8,000, most of them women and children, according to the Health Ministry in Hamas-ruled Gaza. In the occupied West Bank, more than 110 Palestinians have been killed in violence and Israeli raids.

  UNRWA death toll in Gaza rises to 57
​  At least 57 employees of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) have been killed since the latest escalation in the Middle East, UNRWA Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini said in an interview with Qatar’s Al Jazeera television.
​  "Some 57 of our staff have been killed in the ongoing war in the Gaza Strip. Since it is impossible to separate Palestinians form Hamas, all civilians and hospital buildings should be protected," Lazzarini emphasized. On Thursday, 38 UNRWA employees were reported killed.

​  Israel threatens to destroy Musk’s Starlink
​  Israeli Communications Minister Shlomo Kahri has vowed that “Israel will use all means at its disposal to fight” SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s planned provision of Starlink internet access to Gaza.
“Hamas will use it for terrorist activities,” Kahri claimed in a post on X (formerly Twitter), adding that “there is no doubt about it, we know it, and Musk knows it.”

​  Public support for ground offensive shrinks in Israel over past week, poll shows
​  Support for a potential ground offensive in the Gaza Strip among Israelis has more than halved from 65% to 29% over the past week, a recent public opinion poll published by the Israeli daily showed.
​  This week, only 29% of respondents said that Israel should launch a large-scale ground operation in Gaza, while their share was 65% a week ago. In addition, 49% of Israelis support postponing the move against the Palestinian enclave. The change was likely prompted by the emergence of the issue of people abducted by Hamas in public discussions, the newspaper said.
​  As many as 522 adults aged over 18 years were polled on October 25-26, with a margin error of 4.3%.

​  Russia prefers that America and Israel don’t bomb Syria, but it also understands that they’re threatened by Iran’s military presence there, which arms proxy groups to fight against their occupations. Russia agrees with Iran that the US is occupying Syria and Israel is occupying Palestine, but it disagrees with the unconventional methods employed to oust them.

According to a USA Today survey published on Monday, just 12% of Republican voters want the Florida governor to be their party’s nominee for president next year, compared to 58% who back former President Donald Trump for the position.

 ​  The British-US organization HALO Trust, which is officially engaged in humanitarian demining around the world, was running crash courses for teenage and female saboteurs in Ukraine.
​  Its trainees later committed terrorist bomb attacks in the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, a former Ukrainian border guard official who worked for Russian special services has told TASS.
​  The man, Ruslan Syrovoy, the former chief of the cybersecurity unit of the Mukachevo border guard detachment, said that HALO Trust officially operated in Ukraine under the guise of a humanitarian NGO, but in reality, it was instructing civilians in making, planting and exploding bombs. Most of its trainees were women and teenagers, he said, because they were unlikely to arouse suspicion. After the crash courses the newly-trained saboteurs were sent to the DPR and LPR.

  Netanyahu Dragging US Into War With Iran to Save His Political Career - Security Expert
  Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu is facing calls to resign over the apparent failure of his government and security services to predict and head off the guerrilla incursion and rocket barrage by Hamas and other Palestinian groups from the besieged Gaza Strip into southern Israel.
  US President Joe Biden flew to Israel to back Netanyahu following his vow to invade Gaza and "destroy" Hamas, and has sent two US Navy aircraft carrier strike groups and a US Marine amphibious assault group to the region to "deter" other nations from intervening on the Palestinian side.
  [COMPLETELY ILLEGAL] US bases in Iraq and Syria have been attacked 14 times since Israel began its latest bombing campaign against Gaza in preparation for an eventual ground assault.
  The Biden administration has accused Iran of being behind those attacks by Iraqi militias — originally armed by the US and trained by Iran to fight Daesh* — and has threatened Tehran with dire consequences if they continue.

MADNESS | Bloody Massacre In Ukraine And Gaza. Military Summary And Analysis For 2023.10.28​  (Israel/Gaza slaughter after 9:30. Massive overnight bombing​)

  October 7 testimonies reveal Israel’s military ‘shelling’ Israeli citizens with tanks, missiles , Max Blumenthal
  Israel’s military received orders to shell Israeli homes and even their own bases as they were overwhelmed by Hamas militants on October 7. How many Israeli citizens said to have been “burned alive” were actually killed by friendly fire? ...
..These reports indicate that orders came down from the military’s high command to attack homes and and other areas inside Israel, even at the cost of many Israeli lives.

    Israel to pass law allowing state to kill its own citizens – media
    Police officers will only require permission from their commander to shoot at protesters, the broadcaster Kan has reported...
..Israeli Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara has already agreed to fast-track the legislation, which might be introduced as soon as Sunday, it added.
  The easing of live-fire rules was proposed by right-wing National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir even before the surprise attack by Hamas on Israel on October 7, in which 1,400 people were killed by Palestinian militants.

  Alastair Crooke, The reality of the necessity of war is permeating widely the consciousness of the Arabic and Islamic world.
  “Unfortunately, the senior U.S. official told [Friedman], Israeli military leaders are actually more hawkish than the prime minister now. They are red with rage and determined to deliver a blow to Hamas that the whole neighbourhood will never forget”...
..One Israeli Cabinet member put it to the veteran Israeli defence correspondent Ben Caspit that Israel just cannot permit its long-term deterrence being undermined:
“This is the most important point — ‘our deterrence’”, the senior war Cabinet source said. “The region must quickly understand that whoever harms Israel the way Hamas did, pays a disproportionate price. There is no other way to survive in our neighbourhood than to exact this price now, because many eyes are fixed on us and most of them do not have our best interests at heart”...
..This is not a formula by which to reach any sustainable, peaceful accord by which the 1947 UNGA Resolution 181 (the division of Mandate-era Palestine) into two states can be reached. Rather, Israel under the Netanyahu government has been moving closer and closer to an eschatological founding of Israel on the (Biblical) ‘Land of Israel’ – a move that expunges Palestine totally...
..The White House is rattled. The Axios CEO VandeHei and Mark Allen have taken to print to warn:
“Never have we talked to so many top government officials who, in private, are so worried … [that] a confluence of crises poses epic concern and historic danger. We don’t like to sound dire. But to sound a siren of clinical, clear-eyed realism: U.S. officials tell us that, inside the White House, this was the heaviest, most chilling week since Joe Biden took office just over 1,000 days ago … Former Defence Secretary Bob Gates tells us America is facing the most crises since World War II ended 78 years ago
  “Not one of the crises can be solved and checked off: All five could spiral into something much bigger … What scares officials is how all five threats could fuse into one”. (Spreading war as Israel enters into Gaza; the Putin-Xi “anti-American alliance”; a “malicious” Iran; “unhinged” Kim Jon Un and fake videos and news)...
..Should Israel enter Gaza (and Israel may decide it has no choice but to launch a ground operation, given the domestic political dynamics and public sentiment), it is likely that Hizbullah will incrementally be drawn further in, leaving the U.S. with the binary option of seeing Israel defeated, or launching a major war in which all the hotspots become fused ‘as one’.
  In a sense, the Israeli-Islamic conflict now may only be resolved in this kinetic way. All efforts since 1947 have seen the divide only deepen. The reality of the necessity of war is permeating widely the consciousness of the Arabic and Islamic world.

Watch: IDF Tanks, Troops Push 1km Deep Into Gaza To "Prepare The Battlefield"
  The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have published footage of an overnight limited raid in Gaza which relied on military bulldozers and tanks.
Infantry forces were transported by a column of tanks to up to kilometer into the northern part of the Strip, according to a Thursday morning IDF statement. The IDF said it suffered no casualties during the raid, which lasted a few hours, and appeared fundamentally to be a clearing operation.

  Israeli Tanks Exchange Fire With Hamas Inside Gaza, Small Arms Clashes Heard, As Offensive Expands
  Update(1605ET): It has become clear that the IDF has entered its next phase of battle operations, meaning a full ground assault, as heavy aerial bombardment continues. But Israeli officials in the last hours have dubbed this another "expanded" raid.
The Biden White House is now making a show of wanting a more 'humanitarian' approach and has asked Israel to ensure only "surgical" strikes, and to allow the Strip access to aid.
  There's emerging evidence of tank fire and small arms fire at the border, after the IDF confirmed that ground forces are entering the next phase of their operations.

  White House Says Israel Will Continue to Kill ‘Innocent Civilians’ in Gaza
  National Security Council spokesman John Kirby says [ordinary brown] civilian casualties are inevitable
  “This is war. It is combat. It is bloody, ugly and it’s going to be messy and innocent civilians are going to be hurt going forward,” Kirby said when asked if the US thought Israel’s bombardment was a disproportionate response to the Hamas attack on southern Israel.

​  Rights groups affirm Gaza death toll amid Biden’s ‘dehumanising’ scepticism
​  Human Rights Watch has strongly rejected claims that the death toll released by the Gaza Health Ministry cannot be trusted, following comments by Israel and the US President.
​  “I have no notion that the Palestinians are telling the truth about how many people are killed. I’m sure innocents have been killed, and it’s the price of waging a war,” Biden said yesterday. “But I have no confidence in the number that the Palestinians are using.”
​  Biden made his comments after Gaza’s Health Ministry said the Israeli bombing of Gaza had killed 7,028 Palestinians, including 2,913 children, because of Israeli bombings. ​  Scholars of genocide have called the campaign in the besieged enclave “a textbook case of genocide”.

  US will ‘not be spared’ if Israel-Hamas war escalates – Iran
  The US will “not be spared from this fire” if Israel’s “genocide” against the Palestinian people continues, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian told the UN General Assembly in New York on Thursday.

  US Launches Strikes in Syria After Targeted Attacks Against American Troops   [If only there were some peaceful solution... but none presents itself, huh?]
  The US Department of Defense revealed late Thursday that forces had fired strikes against two[completely illegal] facilities in Syria following earlier attacks against American and allied troops in Iraq and Syria...
..The release underscored that the US strikes were not related to the Palestine-Israel conflict. The statement added that the US does not seek an escalation of the conflict in Palestine.
"These narrowly-tailored strikes in self-defense 
[of illegal, oil-stealing American military bases in countries that are no threat to the USA] were intended solely to protect and defend US personnel in Iraq and Syria. They are separate and distinct from the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, and do not constitute a shift in our approach to the Israel-Hamas conflict," the release said...
  In addition to the 900 recently-deployed troops, there are roughly 35,000 US troops deployed in the Middle East, according to Responsible Statecraft. Most of those forces are in Gulf bases, far from any fighting; however, roughly 3,400 remain stationed in Syria and Iraq.
  Last year, the Ministry of Oil in Syria accused the US and its "mercenaries" of stealing Syrian oil. The Syrian government has repeatedly called out the illegal American presence in the country as a violation to its sovereignty.

Hamas Delegation Arrives In Moscow As Russia Blames US For Escalation 10/26/23

..(Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria) Zakharova confirmed the start of the talks with Hamas on Thursday.  She said: “I can also say and confirm that representatives of the relevant Palestinian movement are in Moscow. As for contacts, we will inform you additionally.”  She has also disclosed that since the war began, nine thousand Russian passport holders have returned to Russia from Israel; and that at least fifteen Russian passport holders among the Hamas hostages have been killed in the IDF airstrikes.
  At the same time as Marzouq’s meetings, Husam Badran issued a statement to the Russian state news medium, Sputnik. “Russia,” Badran said, “is able to play an important role in ending the war between Israel and the Gaza Strip, and delivering aid to the Palestinian exclave. Hamas values Russia’s role on the international stage, especially use of veto in the UN Security Council against the United States. But Russia can play a greater role in ending the aggression against our people in the Gaza Strip and applying international pressure to deliver urgent aid to our people in the Gaza Strip.”  
  What Hamas means by “greater role” for Russia has not been disclosed publicly yet.  It is known that Hamas is willing to negotiate the release of “non-military” hostages, including Israelis holding Russian passports, through Iran.    This is conditional on the IDF lifting its siege on Gaza and allowing sufficient supplies into all parts of the territory.
  The “military hostages” are being held in exchange for the release of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails. There are more than 6,000 of the latter; there may be fewer than 200 hostages in Gaza, as up to 50 have been killed by Israeli bombing...
..The Palestinian strategy against Israel is aimed at destroying Israel’s capacity to survive in its present state in a long war.
  This means attacking the invincibility of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and their so-called Iron Dome defence; this began with the cross-border offensive on October 7, and continues with daily drone and artillery attacks on targets inside Israel, as well as resistance to IDF incursions in Gaza.
  The plan also means exposing the weakness of the state’s infrastructure and economy; extending the battlefield across all of Israel’s territory – the ports, power plants and electricity grid, communications, and financial markets —  making the cost of occupation of the Arab territories unendurable. In a long war, two of Israel’s leading exports earning more than 40% of the state’s trade —  diamonds and tourism — face ruin.* ...
..The Israelis and the Jewish diaspora comprehend this reluctantly. For them,  the short war must be correspondingly shorter. This means the genocide of at least a million Palestinians in lives and displacement.
  The war to do that has now become an international war – and this is a war the US cannot sustain. As a Pentagon insider said publicly this week, “because there are so many draws on the logistics and support infrastructure of the Pentagon, we’re not prepared to go in in a concerted way. What we are seeing right now is death by a thousand cuts. Our adversaries know we are stretched so they are going to make us stretch even more, so we can respond even less.”  
  The Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Maria Zakharova, acknowledged the point in Moscow on Thursday: US naval, air force,  and marine reinforcements deployed around Israel and Gaza are “American tactics to strengthen their own security (this is how it should be interpreted) at someone else’s expense.” They are backfiring on Washington’s capacity to defend US forces in the Mediterranean, the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf, and in land bases in Syria, Iraq and Jordan.  “On the contrary,” Zakharova added, the US military deployment “will further rock the situation in the Middle East, create additional tension that can spill out beyond the region.”  
  Zakharova’s warning came in the Moscow afternoon. By then Russian Foreign Ministry officials had held meetings with a Hamas delegation, and officials from Iran, Egypt,  and Kuwait. Across the city at the same time, President Vladimir Putin held telephone talks with Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The Kremlin communiqué reported: “Russia and Turkiye have practically overlapping positions.”

  Putin Warns Gaza War Could Spread Beyond Middle East
  On the same day that a Hamas delegation made a rare visit to Moscow to discuss the crisis in Gaza, President Vladimir Putin warned in a speech that the conflict has the potential to spread well beyond the Middle East.
  In a Wednesday meeting at the Kremlin, he decried Israel's indiscriminate airstrikes on the Gaza Strip which have left over 7,000 people, mostly civilians and at least half of them women and children, dead. "Our task today, our main task, is to stop the bloodshed and violence," said Putin, as cited from an official transcript.
"Otherwise, further escalation of the crisis is fraught with grave and extremely dangerous and destructive consequences."

​  Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has warned Israel and its allies against waging a war on Iran as it could potentially trigger a third world war.
"A third world war is not excluded. It may start from there [the Middle East]. How? If they [Israel and the United States] stage a war on Iran. It is not about Iran irritating them, but about them irritating Iran​."

​  Israeli politician Moshe Feiglin is giving interview after interview on Israeli television demanding the IDF carry out the complete and total "annihilation" of Gaza with endless airstrikes to cause "destruction like Dresden and Hiroshima."

  Qatar sentenced eight former Indian naval officers to death after finding them guilty of spying on the Gulf state's submarine programme for Israel, according to a report by the Financial Times.

  Prosecutor Livid After FBI Refused To Pursue 'Credible' Biden-Ukraine Corruption Allegations, Grassley Reveals 40 Informants
  In a Tuesday letter, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) revealed that the FBI had more than 40 informants on the Biden family over an extended period of time, but that most avenues of investigation were thwarted.
  "This letter is based on years of investigation, including the provision of information, records, and allegations from multiple Justice Department whistleblowers that indicate there is - and has been - an effort among certain Justice Department and FBI officials to improperly delay and stop full and complete investigative activity into the Biden family, including but not limited to FD-1023s referencing the Biden family," wrote Grassley.
  "This alleged political infection breaks faith with the American people, and it will ruin our governmental institutions should it continue. As just one initial example," he continued, "I've been made aware that at one point in time the FBI maintained over 40 Confidential Human Sources that provided criminal information relating to Joe Biden, James Biden, and Hunter Biden."
  Grassley says Americans need to know: "Did the FBI investigate the information or shut it down?"
