Prof. Leibowitz: There are Judeo-Nazis, Israel is a dictatorship and the only state in the Enlightened world where the Supreme Court allowed torture.

Most powerful words, do I need to say more?


Yeshayahu Leibowitz, 91, Iconoclastic Israeli Thinker | LA Times - 1994 |

Yeshayahu Leibowitz, an iconoclastic philosopher who outraged many Israelis by fiercely denouncing the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip as morally corrupting, died here Thursday at 91.

Israeli President Ezer Wiezman praised Leibowitz as "among the great figures in the lives of the Jewish people and the state of Israel in recent generations, a man of intellect, philosophy, humanities and literature, a philosopher, a teacher and a trailblazer."

US administration and Biden/Blinken decision to block any Open Meeting UNSC and statement to cease hostilities. US not a party to Peace, stands aside as war crimes continue. A one-sided demonstration of the horror of occupation. Israel and the US are pariah states,no moral bearing -- ICC will make judgement call. That too will fall on deaf ears.

Last week the Guardian newspaper in London expressed shame over one of its worst errors of judgment: that in 1917 it supported and facilitated the Balfour Declaration, the imperial document that awarded Jews the "right" to make a homeland in Palestine. This counter-declaration was met with rage by Israel supporters.

    I am very concerned about the ongoing violence in Israel and Gaza. It is unacceptable for Hamas to randomly fire rockets at the civilian population. The Netherlands supports Israel's right to self-defense, within the limits of international law and proportionality.

One hour later a tweet with a bit more nuance ... The Netherlands has a large minority ... 25% with migration background ... very small numbers who participate in politics ...

Added this post:

    The Netherlands is calling for an armistice and dialogue. Everything must be done to prevent civilian casualties.

Original tweet was in first person ... not a leader with integrity.

Large protests held in solidarity with Palestinians around the world | Arab News |

Large protests were held in solidarity with Palestinians around the world, including in London, as well as in Muslim-majority countries including Kuwait, Oman, Pakistan, Tunisia and Turkey.

Protesters gathered outside Downing Street, the residence of Prime Minister Boris Johnson against an Israeli court ruling to evict Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in east Jerusalem.

Israel's Supreme Court postponed a key ruling that could have forced dozens of Palestinians from their homes, citing the "circumstances."

Images and testimony from the scenes within Israel brought back images of the 1929 riots against Jews throughout the British Mandate, when Arabs across the region committed pogroms against their Jewish neighbors. Those riots, oddly enough, were also sparked from incitement from Muslim leaders who used al-Aqsa as their political playing card and quickly escalated due to misinformation and incitement. Jews and Arabs also clashed during the unrest in 1929.

Biden admin 'literally aids, abets and justifies' Israeli bombings in Gaza: CAIR | Iran PressTV |

The Biden administration celebrated Eid and attempted to promote peace for both Israelis and Palestinians, recognizing the conflict in a statement celebrating the holiday Friday.

"Jill and I are looking forward to the White House's commemoration of Eid this Sunday," Biden said in a statement.

At least 174 Palestinians, including 47 children and 29 women, have been killed in the Gaza Strip in the past week. Nearly 1,000 others have also been injured.

Biden has reportedly called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, raising concerns about rising civilian deaths in Gaza and the bombing of a building housing news agencies.

US for 3rd time blocking Security Council joint statement calling for ceasefire -- diplomats tell TOI

For the third time in a week, the US is blocking a joint statement from the Security Council calling for an immediate ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, two diplomats involved tell The Times of Israel.

The statement was introduced by Norway, Tunisia and China following today's emergency session on the escalation in Israel and Gaza and criticized both sides for the ongoing violence.

The US mission did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the matter. Member states still have until Monday at noon to mull over statement, and negotiations over the matter are ongoing, two Security Council diplomats told ToI.

During the open meeting, the US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield said that the US is "working tirelessly through diplomatic channels to try and bring an end to this conflict."

The US cannot be a peace broker where Israel is involved. The Gaza War of 2009 too could not be stopped by Obama/Clinton and a cease-fire was brokered by third parties of the region ...
