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.

Janet Yellen Joins Zelensky In Saying US Would Be "Responsible For Ukraine's Defeat"

  "The Committees’ investigative work to date has revealed that the Justice Department afforded Hunter Biden — the President’s son — preferential treatment throughout its investigation of his numerous alleged crimes, and then sought to cover up its actions after two courageous IRS agents stepped forward to blow the whistle on the Department’s deviations from its investigative standards," the report said.
  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.

What do you think is happening and what do you think your role as an individual is in stopping this crime? Thank you for listening.

​  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.

​  Zero Public EV Chargers Built Since Congress Approved $7.5 Billion To Expand Network
​  President Joe Biden's 2021 infrastructure bill boasts a $7.5 billion investment in electric vehicle (EV) chargers, and his administration insists the country is "on track" to install over a million public chargers by the end of the decade—but reports indicate that so far not a single one has actually been built.

​  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.
