“Vaccinated” Israelis May Need To Quarantine Because of the “Delta Varinat”

Say what? We’ve been blasted with heavy doses of propaganda for the past several weeks that the “vaccine” is the only salvation against the “delta variant” of the COVID-19 hoax.  But now, “vaccinated” Israelis may need to quarantine so they can remain protected from the “delta variant.”

This mainstream media official narrative has gone off its own rails.  This makes little to no sense because the rulers and their talking head puppets have been telling everyone that only the “vaccine”, which is actually an experimental gene therapy, will work and it’s the unvaccinated that are dying off.

MSM: “Delta Variant” Will “Surge” Among The Unvaccinated in the Fall

Following new “outbreaks” of the “delta variant” strain of COVID-19 in Israel,  the state has “empowered health officials” on Wednesday to quarantine anyone deemed to have been exposed to an especially infectious variant of COVID-19, even if they were previously vaccinated or recovered from the disease with presumed immunity. So basically, people got the “vaccine” thinking they would be “free” again and now they are still living lives as slaves to the ruling class. Who could have seen this coming?

Under the updated Health Ministry directives, vaccinated or formerly infected people can be ordered to self-isolate for up to 14 days if authorities believe they may have been in “close contact with a carrier of a dangerous virus variant”.

Addressing parliament, Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said fines of “thousands of shekels” would also be levied against Israeli citizens or residents who travel to countries blacklisted as high COVID-19 risks. –Reuters

The ruling class will continue to harass and extort the masses vaccinated or not.  And so many people were duped into taking the shot thinking they would be safe from the master’s wrath.  Obviously, we are nothing more than slaves to be commanded and ordered around.  We had better free our minds and realize what kind of slave system is on this Earth. The coming of the digital dollar will permanently slam the door and any semblance of freedom if we are not aware enough to stop it.

This is incredibly disturbing considering it goes against their narrative and they are flat out telling us they own us regardless of if you take this jab or not. We are the slaves.  They are the masters and they fully intend to keep it that way and far too many slaves are too dumbed down to figure it out.

Stay alert and prepare.  Use your critical thinking and keep asking questions.

Rep. Ilhan Omar retweets video from anti-Israel group that was investigated by the FBI for terrorist ties

One day after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) compared the United States and Israel to Hamas and Taliban terrorists, she retweeted a video from an anti-Israel group that was investigated by the FBI for possible terrorist ties.

The Democratic representative from Minnesota retweeted a video created by the anti-Israel organization International Solidarity Movement on Tuesday, according to Fox News. The video was filmed by activists associated with the organization.

The video was posted on Twitter by Marwa Fatafta, a self-proclaimed “Palestinian feminist.” The tweet was captioned, “This Palestinian child carrying his Spider-Man school backpack violently snatched and detained by Israeli forces. His wriggling is too painful to watch, but sure tell this brutalized child that [Secretary of State Antony Blinken] says he can claim justice from his abusers.”

“In 2010, ISM was deemed by the Anti-defamation League (ADL) as one of the top 10 anti-Israel organizations in the country,” Fox News reported.

The International Solidarity Movement was previously investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to a 2020 report from The Intercept.

“It is clear, however, that the FBI conducted at least two major investigations into ISM,” the report stated. “In addition to the international terrorism investigation into the two St. Louis activists, the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office initiated a domestic security investigation into ISM as an organization.”

The documents obtained by The Intercept hinted, “Nothing in the documents suggests any of these investigations ever resulted in criminal charges.”

The day before Omar retweeted the video questioning Secretary of State Antony Blinken, she challenged Blinken on Monday when he appeared before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, a panel on which Omar sits.

Omar asked the secretary of state about the Biden administration’s opposition to the International Criminal Court pursuing investigations into alleged human rights violations by Israel and the U.S.

“I haven’t seen any evidence in either cases that domestic courts both can and will prosecute alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity,” Omar said to Blinken. “So in both of these cases, if domestic courts can’t or won’t pursue justice and we oppose the ICC, where do we think the victims of these supposed crimes can go for justice?”

Blinken responded, “I believe that we have, whether it’s the United States or Israel, we both have the mechanisms to make sure that there is accountability in any situations where there are concerns about the use of force and human rights.”

Following the hearing, Omar tweeted a video questioning Blinken during the hearing with the caption, “We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the US, Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”

The comment ignited a firestorm, and even House Democrats slammed Omar for equating the U.S. and Israel to Hamas and Taliban terrorists.

Benjamin Netanyahu ousted as prime minister of Israel — but he’s not going down without a ‘daily fight’

Benjamin Netanyahu has been formally ousted as prime minister of Israel. Netanyahu had served as Israel’s top leader for the last 12 years, since March 2009.

Naftali Bennett, a member of right-wing political movements in Israel, was sworn in as Netanyahu’s successor after a 60-59 vote in parliament. Bennett only rose to power after making an agreement with other parties to oust Netanyahu and form a new government.

If the new government should succeed, Bennett “will have to maintain an unwieldy coalition of parties from the political right, left and center,” the Associated Press reported.

More from the AP:

The eight parties, including a small Arab faction that is making history by sitting in the ruling coalition, are united in their opposition to Netanyahu and new elections but agree on little else. They are likely to pursue a modest agenda that seeks to reduce tensions with the Palestinians and maintain good relations with the U.S. without launching any major initiatives.

The driving force behind the coalition is Yair Lapid, a political centrist who will become prime minister in two years, if the government lasts that long.

In his final speech before being ousted, Netanyahu promised to strongly oppose the new government.

“I will fight daily against this terrible, dangerous left-wing government in order to topple it,” Netanyahu said, according to the Times of Israel. “With God’s help, it will happen a lot earlier than you think it will.”

Netanyahu also attacked Bennett personally.

“Bennett does not have the international standing, he doesn’t have the credibility, he doesn’t have the capabilities, he doesn’t have the knowledge and he doesn’t have the governmental support to allow him a real defense [against Iran],” Netanyahu said. “Among all the differences between us and the incoming government, this is the most important and most fateful difference to the future of Israel.”

“The prime minister of Israel needs to be able to say no to the president of the United States on issues that threaten our existence,” he added. “Who will do that now? Prime Minister Yair Lapid?… This government does not want and is not capable of opposing the United States.”

What did the US say?

In a statement, President Joe Biden congratulated Bennett and the new Israeli government coalition.

“On behalf of the American people, I congratulate Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Alternate Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, and all the members of the new Israeli cabinet. I look forward to working with Prime Minister Bennett to strengthen all aspects of the close and enduring relationship between our two nations,” Biden said.

Hamas Ilhan omar Intelwars ISRAEL Terrorism

Hamas says it ‘highly appreciates’ Rep. Ilhan Omar’s remarks condemning US, Israel — then rebukes her

Hamas, the Gaza-based terrorist organization that controls the Gaza Strip, released a statement Friday thanking Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for “defending justice and the rights of the oppressed.”

What did Omar say?

The Minnesota Democrat found herself in hot water this week after she lumped together the United States, Israel, Afghanistan, Hamas, and the Taliban as countries and organizations guilty of committing “unthinkable atrocities.”

“We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban,” Omar said Monday.

How did Hamas respond?

Hamas, which is officially classified by the U.S. government as a “foreign terrorist organization,” released a statement Friday both thanking and condemning Omar.

Despite approving of Omar’s pro-Palestine stance, Hamas rebuked Omar for equating Israel and “U.S. aggression” to “the resistance of the Palestinian people,” suggesting that Hamas is on the side of good and they should not be conflated with their enemies.

The statement read, in part:

The remarks made by US congresswoman Ilhan Omar are very peculiar; she equated between the victim and the executioner when she treated the resistance of the Palestinian people, the Israeli crimes in Palestine, and the US aggression in Afghanistan as an equal footing.

Hamas highly appreciates Omar’s stances in support of justice and the rights of the oppressed around the world, foremost among them is the just rights of the Palestinian people. However, it is unacceptable to make such an unfair comparison, which contradicts with basic norms of justice and international law.

Anything else?

Not only did Omar’s comments invoke condemnation from Republicans and, ironically, an actual terrorist group, but even Democrats — including party leadership — believe Omar’s conflation of Israel and the U.S. with terrorists was unacceptable.

Rep. Brad Schneider (D-Ill.) released a statement Wednesday along with 11 other House Democrats rebuking Omar’s comparison.

“Equating the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban is as offensive as it is misguided. Ignoring the differences between democracies governed by the rule of law and contemptible organizations that engage in terrorism at best discredits one’s intended argument and at worst reflects deep-seated prejudice,” the statement said. “The United States and Israel are imperfect and, like all democracies, at times deserving of critique, but false equivalencies give cover to terrorist groups. We urge Congresswoman Omar to clarify her words placing the US and Israel in the same category as Hamas and the Taliban.”

In response, Omar accused her colleagues of engaging in islamophobia.

“It’s shameful for colleagues who call me when they need my support to now put out a statement asking for ‘clarification’ and not just call,” Omar said. “The islamophobic tropes in this statement are offensive. The constant harassment & silencing from the signers of this letter is unbearable.”

Omar later clarified her remarks.

“On Monday, I asked Secretary of State Antony Blinken about ongoing International Criminal Court investigations,” Omar said Thursday. “To be clear: the conversation was about accountability for specific incidents regarding those ICC cases, not a moral comparison between Hamas and the Taliban and the U.S. and Israel. I was in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday that no disciplinary action will be taken against Omar.

attacks Benny Gantz Death Gaza Headline News hezbollah iceberg Intelwars ISRAEL LEBANON military campaign Missiles PALESTINE rhetoric state rhetoric Strikes Threats wake up War Warning Weapons

Israeli Warns Hezbollah That Strikes On Gaza Were “Only Tip Of The Iceberg”

The Israeli Defense Chief warned Hezbollah that the previous strikes on Gaza were “only the tip of the iceberg.” Could we see the advancement of war in the coming months?

Last month’s eleven-day Gaza war in which there were persistent fears that a “northern front” would open against Israel if Hezbollah joined the fray.  After multiple missiles launched from southern Lebanon reportedly by Palestinian factions in the country), Israel’s Defense Minister Benny Gantz has warned that the next potential war in Lebanon will see “overwhelming force” used.

The words were given at a ceremony marking Israel’s official recognition of the army’s 18-year occupation of southern Lebanon, which is now considered an official military campaign. Referencing the devastating latest strikes on Gaza, which killed almost 250 Palestinians – many of them children – Gantz said the campaign was “only the tip of the iceberg” in terms of military capabilities and what Lebanon’s Hezbollah would face next. -ZeroHedge

“Whoever hides weapons in their house endangers their children,” the defense minister added, in what appears to be an acknowledgment of the high civilian death toll especially impacting children.

This warning elicited a response from Iran. Iranian state media quoted a senior Hezbollah representative who vowed that any aggression would be met with the “fire of hell” in the instance of an invasion or attack. “They (Israelis) should not err in their calculations again,” the official, identified as Hassan Baghdadi said. “If there is a war with Hezbollah, they will see the fire of hell as they have never imagined.”

Even though the missile strikes have ceased, for now, it appears that the rhetoric has continued to amp up. There seems to be no end to the threats, warnings, and rhetoric.

Stay alert, know what’s going on, and be prepared for anything.  Even though there seems to be a lull in the news right now, things look to be taking shape behind the scene.

Hamas human rights abuses Ilhan omar Intelwars ISRAEL Taliban Terrorism WAR CRIMES

Rep. Ilhan Omar compares US to Hamas and Taliban terrorists, says all are guilty of ‘unthinkable atrocities’

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Monday seemingly compared the United States and Israel to Hamas and Taliban terrorists.

Hamas, the Gaza-based terrorist group, is officially classified by the U.S. government as a “foreign terrorist organization.” However, Taliban soldiers who terrorize Afghanistan are not technically part of a U.S.-designated terrorist group.

What are the details?

Omar, one of the most far-left members of Congress, claimed the U.S. and Israel — along with Afghanistan, Hamas, and the Taliban — have committed “unthinkable atrocities” and human rights abuses.

“We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity,” Omar said.

The context of Omar’s inflammatory claim included her questioning Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday about how perpetrators of human rights abuses — she cited the Israeli security forces and Hamas, the Afghanistan government and the Taliban — will be held accountable, especially because the U.S. government opposes the International Criminal Court, the global tribunal tasked with prosecuting war crimes.

Why exactly, then, Omar invoked the U.S. in her tweet and lumped America into a group with terrorist organizations is unclear — unless she is also publicly accusing the U.S. of committing war crimes and human rights abuses.

Omar did not elaborate on what crimes against humanity she thinks the U.S. is guilty of committing. Interestingly, Omar did not cite the U.S. when she questioned Blinken.

What about Israel?

During military tensions between Israel and Hamas last month — which started when Hamas terrorists began launching rockets from Gaza into Israel — Omar accused Israel of committing war crimes.

“We need accountability for every war crime committed. And we need to stop underwriting crimes against humanity while doing nothing to end the occupation,” Omar said.

Omar also criticized President Joe Biden for moving forward with a proposed arms sale to Israel, saying, “The United States should not stand idly by while crimes against humanity are being committed with our backing.”

Despite accusations of war crimes, human rights abuses, and even claims that Israel is operating an “apartheid” state, Israeli leaders take special precautions to prevent civilian causalities during military campaigns against Hamas, even calling off military strikes if it means saving innocent lives.

The reason many non-military Gaza residents are killed when military tensions flare is because Hamas operates from residential areas, knowing their strikes will prompt a response from Israeli forces. By locating themselves in residential and civilian areas, Hamas allows Gaza civilians to become causalities knowing international media will provoke empathy for the Palestinian cause.

Antisemitism google Google diversity lead Intelwars ISRAEL israeli palestinian conflict Kamau bobb Kamau bobb antisemitic blog post

Google diversity head wrote ‘anti-Semitic’ blog post saying Jews have ‘insatiable appetite for war,’ telling them what to think about Israel

The man in charge of Google’s diversity strategy is facing heavy criticism for anti-Semitic comments he made in a 2007 blog post about Israel’s military actions in Gaza and Lebanon.

Kamau Bobb, Google’s global lead for diversity strategy and research, wrote that Jews have an “insatiable appetite for war” and an “insensitivity to the suffering [of] others” in the blog post, which was surfaced by the Washington Free Beacon on Tuesday. The post, titled “If I Were A Jew,” expressed what Bobb, who is not Jewish, believes Jewish people should think and feel about Israel’s conflict with the Palestinians.

“If I were a Jew I would be concerned about my insatiable appetite for war and killing in defense of myself,” he wrote on Nov. 30, 2007, on his personal website. “Self defense is undoubtedly an instinct, but I would be afraid of my increasing insensitivity to the suffering [of] others. My greatest torment would be that I’ve misinterpreted the identity offered by my history and transposed spiritual and human compassion with self righteous impunity.”

Bobb, who at the time was a research associate in technology at Georgia Tech, blasted “fundamentalist Jewish extremists” and the state of Israel for military actions taken during the nation’s 2006 war with Lebanon.

“If I were a Jew today, my sensibilities would be tormented,” he wrote. “I would find it increasingly difficult to reconcile the long cycles of oppression that Jewish people have endured and the insatiable appetite for vengeful violence that Israel, my homeland, has now acquired.”

He said that Jewish experience with the Holocaust ought to “give rise to sympathy and compassion among the oppressed.”

“I don’t know how I would reconcile that identity with the behavior of fundamentalist Jewish extremists or of Israel as a nation. The details would confuse me. I wouldn’t understand those who suggest that bombing Lebanon, slaughtering Lebanese people and largely destroying Beirut in retaliation for the capture of a few soldiers is justified,” he wrote.

“I wouldn’t understand the notion of collective punishment, cutting off gas, electricity and water from residents in Gaza because they are attacking Israel who is fighting against them. It would be unconscionable to me to watch Israeli tanks donning the Star of David rumbling through Ramallah destroying buildings and breaking the glass,” he continued.

Bobb also wrote that the memory of Kristallnacht should cause Jews to reject violence but instead he said they have embraced it.

“My reflections on Kristallnacht would lead me to feel that these are precisely the human sentiments that I as Jew would understand; that I ought to understand and feel compelled to help alleviate,” he wrote. “It cannot be that the sum total of a history of suffering and slaughter places such a premium on my identity that I would be willing to damn others in defense of it.”

Activists that oppose anti-Semitism criticized Bobb’s blog post after the Free Beacon published its story.

“I searched for ‘antisemitism’ and ‘hypocrisy’. Here’s what I found. Google Diversity Head @kamaubobb Said Jews Have ‘Insatiable Appetite for War'”, Stand With Us Executive Director Michael Dickson wrote on Twitter, sharing the Free Beacon’s article.

“Did @Google Google him? He’s not fit for this post,” he added.

In follow-up tweets, Dickson said Bobb’s blog post “makes revolting, and antisemitic, comparisons between Nazi actions and that of the world’s only Jewish country. He portrays Jews as bloodthirsty.”

“All of this begs the question whether (1) @Google did due diligence when selecting @kamaubobb for the sensitive position of global Google DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) Director and (2) whether he should remain in these positions,” Dickson wrote.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, a global Jewish human rights organization, called on Google to fire Bobb.

Separately, StopAntisemitism.org quoted from Bobb’s blog post and demanded to know, “How is the obscene, antisemitic bigot still employed [at Google]?”

Google and Bobb did not immediately respond to a Free Beacon request for comment.

changing definitions COVID-19 Data experimental gene therapy fully vaccinated Headline News herd immunity Intelwars ISRAEL left vs. right paradigm lie liars mRNA shots natural herd immunity RESISTANCE ruling class Science wake up

The Global Race Towards Full Vaccination

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

Scientists initially estimated that 60 to 70 percent of a population would have to acquire resistance to Covid-19 in order for herd immunity to take effect, a threshold that has been revised upwards since the start of the year with 80 to 85 percent quoted in some cases.

As Statista’s Niall McCarthy notes, the race towards full vaccination is well underway and Israel has the highest share of its population fully jabbed, according to Our World in Data.

Infographic: The Race Towards Full Vaccination | Statista

Despite the ever-higher immunity threshold discussed by scientists, Israel’s Covid-19 case count started to tumble when 40 percent of its population received at least one jab and now 59.3 percent of its inhabitants are fully vaccinated. The country’s reproduction rate has been around 0.5 in recent weeks and it appears to be on track to emerge from the pandemic, suggesting that initial herd immunity estimates carried some accuracy.

With 45.4 percent of its inhabitants fully vaccinated, Bahrain comes second on the list.

In the United States, 40.2 percent of people have been fully vaccinated (though do not forget that almost half of unvaccinated Americans have natural immunity from prior infection).

In this case, full vaccination refers to all doses prescribed by the vaccination protocol with data only available for countries reporting the breakdown of their doses.

As Scott Morefield wrote recently, Blue-state lockdown-lovers drunk on their own power like Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer who insist on a 70 percent vaccination rate in order to ease up on mandates and restrictions are ignoring the science completely in order to hold their people hostage to an unobtainable, unnecessary goal.

Dr. Marty Makary, a surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital debunked the desire among some health officials, sometimes referred to as “zero COVID,” that COVID-19 can be eradicated completely.

Well, unfortunately, we have this perception now that’s being created by some public health leaders that we need to reach total eradication. We’re not gonna get to total absolute risk elimination. That is a false goal and quite honestly it’s being used now to manipulate the public. We heard today again from our public health leaders that if we get to 70% vaccination, then we can start seeing restrictions removed. That’s dishonest. Most of the country is at herd immunity. Other parts will get there later this month. San Francisco had 12 cases yesterday, most asymptomatic. What do you call that? I call that herd immunity. And I think what’s happening is our public health leaders are dismissing natural immunity from prior infection, which changes the path to get to more population immunity. It invokes mandates, it means kids may have to get it and it demonizes those that are hesitant rather than respecting their decision.

Indeed, you don’t have to have a medical degree to know that the formula for herd immunity has always been vaccinated plus natural immunity, but then again, when have Democrats ever been good at math?

Black Lives Matter BLM Intelwars ISRAEL PALESTINE Patrisse cullors

VIDEO: Black Lives Matter co-founder calls for ‘end’ of Israel

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors finds herself embroiled in yet another controversy. A newly unearthed video shows the Black Lives Matter co-founder calling for the “end” of Israel.

In the footage from 2015, Cullors is seen speaking at a panel entitled “Globalizing Ferguson: Racialized Policing and International Resistance,” which was hosted at Harvard Law School.

The panel is self-described as “a forum that brings together community organizers, attorneys, and academics to discuss the international dimension of racialized policing, violence and structural injustice.”

The description of the event asks, “What elements of these problems are transnational? Is there a role for transnational solidarity in fighting oppression? Can international human rights bodies provide vehicles of resistance? What are the possibilities and limitations of law and how can lawyers be good allies?”

“Panelists will draw on their recent experiences in taking these struggles to the UN and the inter-American system, and on their involvement in solidarity delegations to Palestine and Brazil.”

During the panel, Cullors calls for an “end” of Israel.

“Palestine is our generation’s South Africa, and if we don’t step up boldly and courageously to end the imperialist project that’s called Israel, we’re doomed,” Cullors tells the audience in the video, resurfaced by the National Pulse.

She then explains that Palestinian solidarity is “crucial” to the Black Lives Matter movement. She advises people to support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which is an anti-Israel campaign that seeks to economically cripple Israel.

Earlier this month, the Black Lives Matter organization announced it “stands in solidarity with Palestinians” because it is a “movement committed to ending settler colonialism in all forms.” The Boycott, Divestments, and Sanctions movement thanked BLM: “From Ferguson to Palestine, our struggles against racism, white supremacy and for a just world are united!”

In 2020, then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared BDS to be “anti-Semitic.”

Cullors also says, “We could have a whole conversation about the settlements that we witnessed and the stories of murder and death at the hands of Israelis and Zionists.”

In 2015, Cullors was part of a “historic” 10-day trip to the Gaza area. While there, Cullors organized an anti-Israel demonstration in Nazareth with other “top Ferguson activists,” including Marc Lamont Hill.

“In a historic trip to Palestine, freedom fighters from Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, New York, Ferguson, and Atlanta were able to witness firsthand the effects of Israeli apartheid and occupation, and to learn from the people who are actively resisting on the front lines,” the video’s description states.

“In Nazareth, the delegates decided to do a solidarity demonstration as a call for support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign that was called for by Palestinian civil society in 2005,” the video description also said.

Last week, Cullors resigned from her leadership role at the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. Her resignation came after she was involved in several controversies, including going on a “real estate buying binge,” proudly boasting that she is a “trained Marxist,” and being overjoyed that a book she was promoting was compared to the “Little Red Book” by Chinese Communist Party leader Mao Zedong.

Bella hadid Bill Maher Hamas Intelwars ISRAEL Nicholas Kristof PALESTINE

Bill Maher staunchly defends Israel, hilariously mocks celebrities who condemn Israel

Bill Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time,” staunchly defended Israel and its right to defend itself from Hamas terrorists in Gaza on Friday, rebuking progressives who condemn Israel and claim that Israel is guilty of “war crimes.”

What is the background?

Progressives, from far-left lawmakers to celebrities like supermodels Gigi and Bella Hadid, vocally condemned Israel’s military campaign against Hamas terrorists in Gaza this month, which was initiated after the terrorists began launching missiles into Israel.

The state of Israel even accused Bella Hadid of “advocating for the elimination of the Jewish State” for allegedly invoking the phrase “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” which Israel explained “is a phrase used by those who call for the elimination of Israel.”

What did Maher say?

During a panel discussion that involved New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, Maher strongly upheld Israel’s right to defend itself from Hamas terrorists.

When Kristof accused Israel of “engaging in possible war crimes in Gaza,” Maher immediately interrupted.

“Well Gaza fired 4,000 rockets into Israel, what would you say Israel should have done instead of what they did?” Maher said.

Kristof responded by claiming Israel’s response to Hamas “was probably a war crime because [Israel] did not sufficiently avoid civilian casualties.” Maher immediately shot back, pointing out that Hamas intentionally operates from civilian areas.

Maher then gave a history lesson about Jewish occupation of the southern Levant, noting that Israelites controlled the area more than 1,000 years before Arabs ever arrived there, to rebuke accusations that Israelis are “occupiers” or that they are operating an “apartheid” state.

But I don’t know how well you respond to when– I mean, what if Canada, fired 4,000 rockets into America. Or Mexico, which is even better analogy, because we actually did steal the land from Mexico. I would submit that Israel did not steal anybody’s land. This is another thing I’ve heard last couple of weeks. Words like “occupiers” and “colonizers” and “apartheid,” which I don’t think people understand the history there.

The Jews have been in that area of the world, since about 1,200 BC, way before the first Muslim or Arab walked the earth— 1,000 years before. I mean, Jerusalem is their capital. OK, so if it’s just about who got there first, it’s not even close. There has been a continuous Jewish presence. Yes. The Jews were the ones who were occupied by everybody. The Romans took over at some point, and then the Persians and the Byzantines and then the Ottomans. So yes, there was colonization going on there. Beginning in the 19th century, they started to return to Palestine, which was never an Arab country. There was never a country called “Palestine” that was a distinct Arab country.

Maher then pointed out, “Hamas’s charter says they just want to wipe out Israel, their negotiating position is: ‘You all die.'”

Later, Maher responded to progressive celebrities who support Palestine, claiming they would “run screaming to Tel Aviv if they had to live in Gaza for one day.”

“As far as Gaza goes, it’s amazing to me that the progressives think that they’re being progressive, by taking that side of it, the Bella Hadid’s of the world, these influencers. I just want to say, in February of this year, a Hamas court ruled that an unmarried woman cannot travel in Gaza without the permission of a male guardian. Really? That’s where the progressives are?” Maher mocked. “Bella Hadid and her friends would run screaming to Tel Aviv if they had to live in Gaza for one day.”

Antisemitism Intelwars ISRAEL The squad

Four House Democrats call out progressive House Dems for ‘inflammatory’ statements on Israel and Jews: ‘Antisemitic at their core’

Members of the group of uber-leftist, progressive U.S. House Democratic lawmakers affectionately known as “The Squad” by their liberal enablers in the U.S. media have really outdone themselves lately. They have gone all-in in making themselves the anti-Israel attack brigade as acts of violence against Jews are on the rise in America during what was nearly two weeks of rocket attacks between Hamas terrorists and Israel.

And now some of these congresswomen’s fellow Democrats in the House are calling them out and accusing them of making statements that are “antisemitic at their core” and contributing to the “climate” of hate against Jews, CNN reported Wednesday.

What happened?

With antisemitic verbal and physical attacks spiking around the world and in the U.S. — from Vienna and London to Los Angeles and New York City to the offices of CNN — the ongoing smears and rhetoric against Israel coming from Democratic members of the Squad and ringing through the halls of Congress have done nothing but increase tensions in the country.

  • Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) labeled Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu an “ethno-nationalist” on the House floor and took to Twitter to accuse Israel of war crimes and “acts of terorism.”
  • Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) declared that Palestinian “babies, children and their parents” were “being massacred” by Israel.
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) famously described Israel as an “apartheid state.”
  • Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) accused Israel of ongoing “ethnic cleansing” and demanded the U.S. government “stop funding the apartheid status quo.”

Four House Democrats — Reps. Josh Gottheimer (N.J.), Elaine Luria (Va.), Kathy Manning (N.C.), and Dean Phillips (Minn.) — have had enough of the Squad’s antics.

In a letter to President Joe Biden urging his administration to prioritize combatting antisemitism in the U.S., the four Democrats called out the anti-Israel, anti-Jew rhetoric they’ve been hearing among fellow lawmakers.

After first alluding to recent Holocaust-related comments made by Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.), the quartet lit into the Squad — though without naming them:

We also reject comments from Members of Congress accusing Israel of being an “apartheid state” and committing “act[s] of terrorism.” These statements are antisemitic at their core and contribute to a climate that is hostile to many Jews. We must never forget that less than eighty years ago, within the lifetime of our parents and grandparents, six million people were murdered by the Nazis in the Holocaust because they were Jews. Israel has long provided the Jewish people with a homeland in which they can be safe after facing long centuries of persecution.

The lawmakers went on to remind the president that history shows that “when this type of violence and inflammatory rhetoric goes unaddressed, it can fuel increasing hatred and violence.”

Their letter included a clear hint to the Squad: “Antisemitism is wrong, and it deserves to be unequivocally condemned by all.”

However, as HotAir’s Ed Morrissey pointed out, some observers were none too impressed by the fact that no one in the Squad was called out by name. But at least “the rift over The Squad’s hateful rhetoric is now out in the open,” Morrissey noted.

New Disk Wiping Malware Targets Israel

Apostle seems to be a new strain of malware that destroys data.

In a post published Tuesday, SentinelOne researchers said they assessed with high confidence that based on the code and the servers Apostle reported to, the malware was being used by a newly discovered group with ties to the Iranian government. While a ransomware note the researchers recovered suggested that Apostle had been used against a critical facility in the United Arab Emirates, the primary target was Israel.

Anti-Semitism Hollywood Liberals Intelwars ISRAEL israeli palestinian conflict mark ruffalo PALESTINE

Far-left actor Mark Ruffalo apologizes for accusing Israel of ‘genocide’

Far-left actor Mark Ruffalo, best known for playing “The Hulk” in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe, apologized on Tuesday for making social media posts that accused Israel of committing “genocide” amid the conflict between the world’s lone Jewish state and the terrorist group Hamas.

“I have reflected & wanted to apologize for posts during the recent Israel/Hamas fighting that suggested Israel is committing ‘genocide,'” Ruffalo tweeted. “It’s not accurate, it’s inflammatory, disrespectful & is being used to justify antisemitism here & abroad. Now is the time to avoid hyperbole.”

Ruffalo’s apology follows a recent increase in hate crimes committed against Jews in the United States and abroad in the weeks of renewed conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. In several recent social media posts, Ruffalo took the Palestinians’ side, comparing Israeli treatment of the Palestinians to apartheid in South Africa.

“1500 Palestinians face expulsion in #Jerusalem,” Ruffalo wrote on May 11, sharing a petition that called for international sanctions against the Israeli government. “200 protesters have been injured. 9 children have been killed. Sanctions on South Africa helped free its black people – it’s time for sanctions on Israel to free Palestinians. Join the call.”

After 11 days of violence, with Hamas terrorists targeting Israeli civilians with rocket attacks and the Israeli Defense Forces responding with airstrikes in Gaza, Israel and Hamas agreed to a ceasefire last Friday. Palestinian officials reported that 248 people were killed in Gaza, including women and children. On the Israeli side, 13 people were killed — a seemingly disproportionate number of casualties that can be attributed to Israel’s Iron Dome defense system protecting Israelis while Hamas fighters position tunnels, rocket launchers, and command and control infrastructure in close proximity to Palestinian civilians.

It is unclear when Ruffalo shared a social media post accusing Israel of “genocide”, but after his apology a vocal segment of his 7.5 million followers on social media accused him of moderating his support for the Palestinians. Some suggested that Disney, which owns Marvel Studios, forced him to make an apology.

While Disney’s involvement is pure speculation, it would not be the first time the House of Mouse cracked down on one of its stars for controversial social media posts. In February, Disney fired “The Mandalorian” actress Gina Carano after a social media campaign demanded she lose her job for making a controversial Instagram post that compared censorship of conservative points of view and cancel culture to the Holocaust.

Ruffalo posting that Israel is committing “genocide” is at least as controversial as Carano’s Holocaust post. But Disney has not yet responded to the tweet from its bigger star, at least not publicly.

Anti-Semitism Hamas Hamas attacks on israel Intelwars ISRAEL

Anti-Israel statement from Vanderbilt U. student gov’t weeps for Palestinians — and predictably fails to mention ‘Hamas,’ ‘rocket attacks,’ or ‘terrorism’

Vanderbilt University’s student government was called out for issuing a decidedly anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian statement over the weekend in the wake of the recent ceasefire after nearly two weeks of deadly fighting between the warring factions.

What are the details?

The unsigned statement is curiously titled “In Solidarity with Students” — but given the weight of the overall words, it seemed clear that not every student was created equal in the eyes of the college’s student government.

While it makes a passing reference about extending “support and consolation to Israeli students also affected by this crisis” and that “there is no place for antisemitism or anti-Jewish sentiment of any kind” on campus, the vast majority of the two-page statement is passionately anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian — and fails to even mention the words “Hamas” or “terrorism” or the thousands of rocket attacks the Jewish state endured.

The most blatantly anti-Israel sections of the statement are found on the second page where Vanderbilt’s student government catalogs death and destruction by Israel’s “occupying forces” and uses phrases such as “indigenous Palestine,” “targeting Muslim Palestinians during the holy month of Ramadan,” “ethnic cleansing,” and “inhumane and cruel acts of war, supremacy, and genocide.”

Hillel had something to say

In the wake of the student government statement, Vanderbilt’s Hillel group put together a response on its own Instagram page — and the campus’ Jewish organization was not happy.

“Vanderbilt Hillel strongly condemns the recently released, biased statement from Vanderbilt Student Government,” Hillel’s statement begins. “Despite VSG’s claim to denounce antisemitism, their statement contributes to the continued erosion of Jewish students’ sense of safety at Vanderbilt and has unleashed a torrent of offensive comments online.”

The Hillel statement goes on to say that Jewish students are being “targeted for harassment and abuse for their Jewishness, Zionism, and support of Israel as a Jewish state” and are left feeling “unwelcome and threatened” on campus. The statement also urged Vanderbilt to help student leaders especially to learn “the ways that anti-Israel activism becomes antisemitism.”

What did Vanderbilt have to say?

The school made note on its website of the competing social media statements without mentioning specific student groups and encouraged peaceful, restrained interactions in regard to the volatile topic.

“Some student organizations on our campus have posted statements on social media about this issue that have prompted heated debate and discussion, marked by at times offensive and inflammatory rhetoric. Student organizations do not speak for the university or the overall Vanderbilt community. They are formed and led by students as an opportunity to enhance their college experience and become well-rounded leaders, scholars and citizens who navigate the world with civility, curiosity and respect for others. As such, all our students, whether members of these organizations or not, are expected to adhere to our high standards of conduct aligned with the university’s policies and rules governing such groups.”

The school’s statement added that “we must all ensure through our words and our actions that Vanderbilt remains a safe and welcoming community committed to civil discourse, especially when we hold strong and impassioned views. Language and actions that constitute harassment and bullying are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”

Alexandria ocasio-cortez Fox News Fox News Sunday Hamas Ilhan omar Intelwars ISRAEL Mark regev Rashida tlaib

Top Netanyahu adviser hits back at criticism from Democratic politicians: ‘No one should make excuses for’ Hamas

Mark Regev, a senior adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, responded to American critics on Sunday, defending Israel’s right to defend itself from attacks from Islamic terrorists in the Palestinian territories.

What is the background?

Members of the so-called “Squad” — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) — amplified anti-Israel rhetoric last week as Israel continued its military campaign against Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

Ocasio-Cortez called Israel an “apartheid state,” Omar accused Israel of committing acts of terrorism, while Tlaib called Netanyahu the “Apartheid-in-chief” and accused him of “committing war crimes.”

Tlaib and Omar even said after Israel and Hamas agreed to a ceasefire that a ceasefire was not enough. Omar, instead, demanded “accountability for every war crime committed.” Meanwhile, Tlaib said the U.S. should stop sending aid to Israel if the Jewish nation doesn’t “uphold human rights,” claiming the ceasefire “will not alone achieve freedom, justice, and equality for all who live under Israel’s apartheid government.”

What did Regev say?

Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” the top Israeli diplomat dismissed criticism from Democrats, saying they don’t represent the views of a majority of Americans.

Regev also reiterated that Hamas is not just an enemy of Israel’s — but of the free world.

“I can tell you this morning before coming to this interview, I looked at the polling. And I saw that the overwhelming majority of the American people stand with Israel, support Israel, are favorable toward Israel,” Regev said. “A majority of people who identify as Democrats also support Israel or favor Israel.”

“People need to understand — Hamas is not just Israel’s enemy. Hamas is the enemy of everyone who wants to seek peace and reconciliation in our part of the world. There were brutal jihadist terrorist group,” Regev added. “No one should make excuses for them.”

When pressed on the issue further — including on criticism from Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), who rebuked Israel for targeting a building that housed an Associated Press bureau and Hamas intelligence offices — Regev further explained why criticism of Israel is unwarranted.

In that building that the senator was concerned about, Hamas had its elite scientific research unit that was working on ways to try to counteract the guiding systems on our rockets. If they would have succeeded, not only couldn’t we have shut down incoming rockets coming into Israel to kill our people, but we wouldn’t have been able to be surgical in our strikes against Hamas’ military machine, so that definitely was a legitimate military target.

That Hamas was using journalists as a human shield shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone but we notify the journalists in advance and I’m happy to tell you that there was not a single civilian casualty from that operation. In fact, from my point of view, it was an Israeli tactical success because we took out a legitimate Hamas target, a dangerous Hamas target and at the same time, not a single innocent civilian was killed. That’s a good thing.

Biden administration Hamas Intelwars ISRAEL PALESTINE Terrorism

Report: Biden officials made requests to Israel that mirrored demands from Hamas terrorists

When tensions flared between Israel and Palestine two weeks ago, the Biden administration reportedly made requests of Israel that mirrored demands from Hamas terrorists, who have controlled the Gaza Strip since 2007.

What is the background?

Growing tensions between Israelis and Palestinians boiled over on May 10 when Hamas began firing missiles at Israel.

Prior to the military escalation, Hamas had demanded Israel remove their security forces from and the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which sits on the Temple Mount, a site holy to Jews and Muslims.

Israeli security forces only entered the compound after increasing violence from Palestinian activists. “Anger had been mounting for weeks among Palestinians ahead of a now-delayed Israeli court ruling on whether authorities were able to evict dozens of Palestinians from the Old City’s Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood and give their homes to Jewish settlers,” the Guardian reported.

What did the Biden admin tell Israel?

As tensions escalated at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, top Biden administration officials reportedly spoke with their Israeli counterparts and made three demands of Israel.

The demands included canceling evictions in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood and canceling the annual Jerusalem Day flag parade.

Axios reported:

[W]ith tensions escalating fast, National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan had called his Israeli counterpart, Meir Ben-Shabbat, while Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman spoke to the director general of the Israeli foreign ministry, Alon Ushpiz.

The Biden administration had three immediate demands of Israel: stop the evictions in Sheikh Jarrah, lower tensions on the Temple Mount and cancel the annual Jerusalem Day flag parade, during which Israeli nationalists celebrate the unification of Jerusalem under Israeli control.

Israel reportedly rejected U.S. requests, though, as Axios noted, it appeared that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attempted to thwart further escalation.

“[Netanyahu] asked the Supreme Court to postpone its verdict on the evictions, banned visits by Jews to the Temple Mount and rerouted the flag parade so it wouldn’t pass through the Muslim quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City,” Axios reported.

What were Hamas’ demands?

A Hamas spokesperson told Newsweek their goal in attacking Israel was “to have the Israeli occupation authorities accept our demands.”

Those demands included “giving free access to worshipers from all parts of Palestine to pray at Al Aqsa Mosque without restriction or harassment by the Israeli police or the Israeli settlers and halting the attempts to expel the Palestinian residents of Sheikh Jarrah,” the Hamas spokesperson told the media outlet.

An Israeli official reportedly responded to the demands by explaining they were “already and partially the policy of Israel,” as indicated by Axios’ report.

Israeli and Palestinian officials finally came to a ceasefire agreement that began last Friday morning.

Anti-semitic attack Anti-Semitism Antisemitism Florida Intelwars ISRAEL Miami Palestinians South Florida

Man with a gun reportedly chases off anti-Semitic group terrorizing Jewish family: ‘Die Jew!’

Florida police are investigating an alleged hate-fueled incident where a group of young men terrorized a Jewish family, who were visiting from Teaneck, New Jersey. The men shouted anti-Semitic threats at the family, but stopped the intimidating harassment when a man with a gun intervened, according to several reports.

Eric Orgen and his family were visiting Bal Harbour, located a few miles north of Miami Beach. Orgen, his wife Karen, his 16-year-old daughter, and Mark Schwartz, the deputy mayor of Teaneck, had just left a synagogue in the area and were walking on the sidewalk of Collins Avenue.

Four men said to be in their 20s in a white SUV allegedly drove up to the family and began screaming anti-Semitic remarks, “F*** you, Jew” and “Die Jew.” They also said they were going to rape his wife and daughter, according to a Facebook post written by Orgen. The group reportedly threw garbage and a water bottle at the family while yelling, “Free Palestine!”

“They just started screaming some derogatory things towards Jewish people out the window,” Orgen told WPEC-TV. “My first thought was just making sure my wife and daughter were behind me so I could take the brunt of anything that was going to happen.”

A driver of an Audi was right behind the SUV and allegedly witnessed the hateful harassment. The motorist, who was armed, got out of his car and “pulled his gun to protect us and chased them as they drove away,” Orgen claimed. “So thankful that a total stranger stepped up to protect us!”

Orgen reported the incident to local law enforcement, which is investigating the alleged incident.

“It’s a scary world we live in but the world is big enough for everyone to live peacefully. We all bleed red,” Orgen told WSVN-TV, adding that he believed the incident was a hate crime.

Bal Harbour Mayor Gabriel Groisman issued a statement on the reported incident.

“Bal Harbour Police Department is actively investigating the incident, and I am confident that they will track down the perpetrators,” Groisman wrote on Facebook. “We have ZERO TOLERANCE for criminal conduct in our municipality, and we will do everything in our power to keep all residents and visitors in Bal Harbour safe.”

Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava issued a statement regarding recent anti-Semitic incidents in South Florida that began following the commencement of the most recent Israel-Gaza conflict.

Acts of hate and violence against any community are not tolerated in Miami-Dade County,” Cava said. “Hate and intolerance contradict the foundations of our community – a place where so many generations of people found a safe home after fleeing their own countries to build a new life with their families.”

“As a member of the Jewish community and the first Jewish Mayor of Miami-Dade, acts of antisemitism in our County cut especially close to home,” she continued. “They also deepen my commitment to ensure Miami-Dade remains a place where all people are welcomed, respected, and made to feel at home, regardless of where they come from or their faith.”

On May 14, Miami police arrested Joseph Bounds, who was driving a van that was covered in anti-Semitic slurs and swastikas disrupting a pro-Israel rally in Boca Raton. The vehicle flew Palestinian flags, and had hateful remarks such as “Jews killed Jesus,” “Jews are not white,” “vax the Jews,” and “Hitler was right.” There were at least six men raising their arms in the Nazi salute, according to the Miami Herald.

Miami police arrested Bounds, who is from Denver, for refusing to obey police orders during a traffic stop.

Amanda bueno Anti-racist Antiracist Intelwars ISRAEL Israel–Gaza conflict New York City Palenstine

NYC principal under fire for telling staff to ‘take action’ against Israel, make ‘commitment to Palestinian liberation’

A New York City middle school principal is under fire for telling teachers and administrators to “take action” against Israel and make a “public commitment to Palestinian liberation.” Principal Amanda Bueno emailed staffers at MS 136 in Brooklyn a list of actions they should take to support Palestine in the most recent Israel-Gaza conflict.

The email in question, which is titled “Day of Action in Solidarity with The Palestinian Uprising & General Strike,” urged teachers to demand sanctions on Israel from U.S. government officials.

“Yesterday was the Day of Action in Solidarity with the Palestinian Uprising & General Strike. If you have been watching the news in absolute horror, you are not alone,” Bueno began the email, which was published by the New York Post.

“You can take action today by protesting, attending a vigil, making a public commitment to Palestinian Liberation, signing a petition, or calling your government officials to place sanctions on Israel,” Bueno wrote on Wednesday morning.

“The time is now to take a stand for those impacted by state-sanctioned violence and crimes against the humanity of the most vulnerable in our world,” the email read. “We need not prove their humanity and right to exist for us to spread awareness about these issues. Empathy is the bare minimum.”

The email included a list of links and resources to enable teachers to take action against Israel and support Palestinians.

“Here are some notes and resources from the Institute for Anti-Racist Education,” the principal wrote.

She included a link to the “Teach Palestine” website and an article titled “‘American Taxpayer Money Is Being Used To Commit Human Rights Violations’ In Israel, Says Rep. Rashida Tlaib.”

An MS 136 teacher, who is Jewish, told the New York Post, “I opened the email and I was in shock. I felt very targeted and very attacked by her words.”

“These resources she provided, it’s propaganda,” the teacher added. “There was nothing in the email about Hamas rockets targeting innocent Israeli civilians.”

Lawyer Inna Vernikov sent a letter to the New York Department of Education calling for Bueno to be punished.

“New York law forbids requesting or encouraging any public servant, city employee, or subordinate public servant/employee to engage in political activities,” Vernikov wrote.

StopAntisemitism.org, a non-profit foundation that “works to hold antisemites accountable,” stated, “NY law forbids encouraging any public servant or city employee from engaging in politics. This didn’t stop Brooklyn Middle School 136 Principal Amanda Bueno from sending out a school wide email titled ‘Day of Action in Solidarity with The Palestinian Uprising & General Strike.'”

New York City Schools Chancellor Meisha Porter said Bueno made “a clear exercise of poor judgment.”

“The MS 136 principal must apologize for her email,” Porter tweeted. “This was a clear exercise of poor judgment & we will take appropriate follow-up action. We must teach complex current events without bringing our political activities or beliefs into the classroom.”

Nathaniel Steyer, a spokesman for the Department of Education, said, “The matter is being addressed internally and was referred to [the special commissioner of investigation] for further investigation.”

“Schools are not public forums for purposes of political expression, and staff may not use DOE resources in the furtherance of personal or political activities,” Steyer added.

Alexandria ocasio-cortez Bernie Sanders Hamas Hamas attacks on israel Intelwars ISRAEL Israel–Gaza conflict

AOC and Bernie Sanders try to block Biden admin’s arms sale to Israel — all while the US’ top Middle East ally is bombarded by Hamas terrorists

Hamas has been bombarding Israel with rockets over the last several days in its latest efforts to violently challenge the United States’ top ally in the region. Over the last week and a half, Hamas terrorists have fired more than 4,000 rockets at Israel, the nation’s air force said, according to the Associated Press.

As Hamas rockets continued to rain down on Israeli communities, left-wing Democrats in the U.S. Congress were spending their time trying to stop President Joe Biden from selling arms to Israel that the nation could use to defend itself against terrorism.

What happened?

The Biden White House approved a $735 million sale of weapons to Israel, the Washington Post revealed Monday. These weapons include JDAMs, or Joint Direct Attack Munitions, which, Fox News said, are tail kits that convert “dumb” bombs into precision-guided missiles. Analysts believe JDAMs have been instrumental in the recent cross-border conflict with Hamas.

According to the Post, the administration notified Congress of the planned sale on May 5, five days before recent hostilities began. The declaration is required under law, and lawmakers have 15 days to object with a nonbinding disapproval resolution.

In the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has been leading the charge to kill the arms deal, along with known anti-Israel Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (Minn.), who called the potential sale “appalling.”

AOC, along with Tlaib and Rep. Mark Pocan, introduced a resolution Wednesday to block the arms sale.

In a statement on the resolution, the democratic-socialist lawmaker said, “For decades, the U.S. has sold billions of dollars in weaponry to Israel without ever requiring them to respect basic Palestinian rights. In so doing, we have directly contributed to the death, displacement and disenfranchisement of millions,” the Post reported.

And she took to Twitter to claim that the move was all about protecting human rights and allege that Israel has been targeting civilian and media sites.

“The United States should not be rubber-stamping weapons sales to the Israeli government as they deploy our resources to target international media outlets, schools, hospitals, humanitarian missions and civilian sites for bombing,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We have a responsibility to protect human rights.”

Israel has said that JDAMs have been used for the Gaza airstrikes and in other similar situations in order to avoid harming civilians, which is the opposite of what Hamas has done with its indiscriminate bombing of Israeli cities.

On the U.S. Senate side, avowed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said he plans to introduce a similar resolution Thursday to stop the weapons sale, the Post reported.

“At a moment when U.S.-made bombs are devastating Gaza, and killing women and children, we cannot simply let another huge arms sale go through without even a Congressional debate,” Sanders tweeted.

“I believe that the United States must help lead the way to a peaceful and prosperous future for both Israelis and Palestinians,” he continued in a follow-up tweet. “We need to take a hard look at whether the sale of these weapons is actually helping do that, or whether it is simply fueling conflict.”

Though the Sanders resolution will likely get an up-or-down vote, its fate is uncertain, the Post said. Should it get the 51 votes needed for passage, it would still need to pass the House, which AOC and her ilk would likely support it.

The president, however, would have the power to veto the resolution. If he did, both congressional chambers would need to rally two-thirds of their respective bodies to overturn the veto.

Israel Launches More Airstrikes After Biden Demanded “De-escalation”

Rockets are launched from the Gaza Strip towards Israel, Monday, May. 10, 2021. (AP Photo/Khalil Hamra)

After an eight-hour pause in airstrikes against Gaza, Isreal resumed the attacks, according to local news sources. This news comes just one day after President Biden said he expected to see a “significant de-escalation” in violence in the region.

Reuters reported that the airstrikes killed one woman and wounded four children. One of the children told the news service they were gathered on the couch in their home when an Israeli strike collapsed part of the building. “We were sitting on the sofa when a missile landed. There was heavy smoke and we couldn’t see anything,” 14-year-old Amira Esleem said.

De-escalation seems unlikely at this point, but it is not impossible. Global conflict seems to be inching nearer each day.

The new airstrikes come amid stepped-up efforts by the Biden administration for a ceasefire amid mounting pressure from Democrats to act in the face of a possible humanitarian disaster. Some progressives are moving forward with a resolution to block an announced sale of arms to Israel in response to the violence. -The Hlil

On Wednesday, Biden demanded that Israel commit to a “significant de-escalation” in the Israel-Gaza conflict during a phone call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“The two leaders had a detailed discussion on the state of events in Gaza, Israel’s progress in degrading the capabilities of Hamas and other terrorist elements, and ongoing diplomatic efforts by regional governments and the United States,” the White House said Wednesday. “The President conveyed to the Prime Minister that he expected a significant de-escalation today on the path to a ceasefire.”

According to a report by NPR, Gaza continues to fire rockets into Israel as well. However, most of Hamas’ rockets are intercepted by Israeli defenses. But the attacks force Israelis to take shelter, and the rockets that get through have killed 12 people and caused damage.

Tensions continue to mount in the ongoing conflict. Other nations are still threatening to get involved and if some choose to do so, we will likely see this escalate to a level of war that no one would want. Let’s continue to hope cooler heads prevail and the violence will end.

So far, it doesn’t look like Sleepy Creepy Uncle Joe has much sway on the global stage.

Gaza Gaza violence Hamas IDF Intelwars ISRAEL Israel Defense Forces Israel–Gaza conflict

Israel’s military posts video showing how it has taken down more than 60 miles of Hamas tunnels

For the last week and a half, Hamas terrorists have been indiscriminately launching rockets into Israel from Gaza. The Israel Defense Forces have been responding with targeted attacks on Hamas assets and personnel — who often hide among civilians and the media.

One of the IDF’s top targets has been Hamas’ underground tunnel system often referred to as the “Metro.” The terrorist organization uses the Metro for storing weapons, conducting military operations, surreptitiously moving about Gaza, and carrying out training exercises.

Just last week, the IDF pulled off what became a headline-grabbing attack on a section of the Metro system. The agency duped Hamas into believing IDF troops were initiating a ground attack into Gaza, baiting the terrorists to head to the tunnels. Once the Hamas members were underground, Israel launched a massive air campaign, burying untold numbers of terrorists in their own infrastructure.

The IDF posted a video Wednesday explaining just how effective attacks have been on the Hamas Metro — as well as how extensive the terrorists’ tunnel system has been, the New York Post said.

According the video, the Israeli military has taken out 62 miles (100 kilometers) of Metro tunnels so far.

“The Hamas terror organization invested the majority of its finances and efforts over the last decade in digging out a complex tunnel system across the Gaza Strip,” the video said, adding that the “extensive project” was “in the configuration of a ‘metro’ network — tunnels connected to each other at intersections and bypasses.”

The Metro, the IDF said, began just as “individual shafts” used as hiding places for Hamas operatives after launching rockets.

“The network of tunnels grew and branched off until it became a ‘metro’ of an internal tunnel system throughout the Gaza Strip,” the military continued. “The system enabled military training, mobility, the capacity to carry out and manage military operations without exposing themselves, storage for weaponry, and more.”

The IDF then showed locations of Metro access points and illustrated stages of airstrikes on the system.

IDF spokeswoman Capt. Libby Weiss told the Post that the Metro is “one of Hamas’ most strategic projects, created over the course of years and dug under the people of Gaza near homes, schools and mosques.”

“As a result of IDF activity, more than 62 miles of this network have been destroyed — that’s the equivalent of almost a quarter of the NYC subway system,” Weiss said. “Rather than investing in the economic development of the Gaza Strip, Hamas sunk tens of millions of dollars in this system.”

IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus told the Post that because the tunnels run under civilian areas, the military’s airstrikes have been targeting roads above the tunnels in order to “minimize damage to buildings.”
