Fascist Jewish Settlers Murder With Impunity

by Oui Thu Jun 23rd, 2022 at 12:09:35 PM EST

Not politically dead ... reborn.

Hundreds of Palestinians took part in the funeral of Ali Hasan Harb in the West Bank village of Iskaka, after he was stabbed and killed by a settler the day before.

According to eyewitnesses, Harb was stabbed near his heart after settlers attempted to erect a tent on his family's land, which borders the settlement city of Ariel, while Israeli soldiers and police officers who were present did nothing to stop the attack. Following the killing, an Israeli court placed a gag order on the details of the investigation.


Breaking News: Israeli media announce an arrest has been made.

    Translation:
    This month, the Gaza Strip will complete 15 years of siege. Two million people have been imprisoned for 15 years in a small and crowded space, without any basic public services, without proper infrastructure, without work - and without hope.
    for further information:

    A humanitarian tragedy in the Gaza Strip. It is not the result of a natural disaster, and it is entirely the creation of Israel, which imposes on nearly two million citizens of the Gaza Strip a life of abject poverty in conditions that are almost inhumane.

England, Israel Crimes, BDS and Protest

      "We've slammed the doors of Elbit's London HQ shut,
      as direct action has once again permanently closed
      an Elbit Systems site in Britain. Thanks to our brave
      and spirited activists, we are ever closer to the end
      of Israel's arms trade in Britain."

Palestinians give US the bullet that killed Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh | Rte News |

The Palestinian Authority have given the bullet that killed Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh to US forensic experts as it seeks to prove conclusively that it was fired by an Israel soldier.

The Palestinian Authority was assured that no modifications would be made to the bullet that killed Ms Abu Akleh during an Israeli raid in the occupied West Bank.
Palestinian Attorney General Akram Al-Khatib said they were told that it would be returned as soon as the assessment was complete.

The Palestinian Authority gave the green light to hand over the bullet to the US, but not to Israel, the Palestinians' official Wafa news agency reported.

Israel to examine bullet that killed Abu Akleh, with Americans present, says IDF | TOI - 1 hr ago |

The round is currently in the custody of a senior US military official, according to Israeli and Palestinian officials. American ballistics experts would examine the shell, not Israel, said Palestinian Authority chief prosecutor Akram al-Khatib.

"We will not transfer the bullet to the Israeli side," al-Khatib said in a statement on Saturday night.

But Kochav appeared to dispute those claims on Sunday, telling Army Radio that an American general would observe the Israeli investigation as long as the bullet was in Israel.

"This is an Israeli examination, an Israeli investigation, with an American presence. The Palestinians who so kindly transferred the bullet did so in order for there to be an Israeli investigation with an American presence," he said.

What the hell ... do you think Palestine is a sovereign territory? Israel is born on lies and demands from Zionist terror forcing the hand of the British Empire. The Stern Gang operating inside Palestine threatened terror acts in London such as bomb attacks. (Re: King David hotel in Jerusalem bombed)

Times of Israel:

In a public letter in early June, a bipartisan group of 25 US lawmakers urged Secretary of State Antony Blinken to pressure the PA to release the bullet.

"We urge you to ask the Palestinian Authority to provide access to the forensic evidence in Abu Akleh's death for an independent investigation so that all parties can reach a definitive conclusion about the events leading to her death, and hold all parties accountable," the lawmakers wrote.

Lapid's statement did not mention the US determination that Israeli troops likely fired the fatal bullet, instead focusing on the lack of conclusive evidence.

"The IDF probe clarifies that it cannot be determined who is responsible for the unfortunate death of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, but it can be determined with certainty that there was no intention to hurt her," he said.

He noted that journalists die all over the world, though "it's obvious that Israel is interested in protecting journalists and freedom of the press (1) in any place and under all conditions." Lapid added that he gives full backing to Israel troops "risking their lives to protect Israeli citizens against terror."

Jordan Peterson, Social Media and Rise of Alt-right

I'll have to agree with generic on this one.

"psychological background"

No, Jordan Peterson is a clinical psychologist and assistant professor. From what I have read, that is where his professional knowledge and experience lies. The podcasts and crowdfunding in recent years deliver quite a few bucks to keep the envelop moving forward.

...
Peterson is a psychobabbler using social media to gain notoriety, and not through his peers, on his favorite topic of today: the deplorables of Donald Trump.

Comment added to Tikun Olam:

Senator/VP President Joe Biden has been an arms salesman all his political life. Because George W. Bush was close to Saudi oil - in addition Dick Cheney - and the corrupt bandit Prince Bandar, the Obama/Biden administration cozied up to the MB with Erdogan, Morsi and al-Thani clan of Qatar. The Sunni-Shia nut on Syria could not be cracked by the White House to get a diplomatic solution in Geneva. When Obama forced through the Iranian nuclear deal, it sealed the fate of Democrats in 2016. Aipac was minor, the alliance Israel-UAE-UK-Saudi did most damage to Democrats in the run for the White House. For Netanyahu it was revenge for Obama's intervention in Israel's election. VP Biden under Obama was run out of Israel as settlement expansion continued. Recall Moshe Bogie Ya'alon.

For Iraq Joe Biden's plan was to split the country in three. American foreign policy has an underlying fundament of creating division and aggression whether it is Bush, Obama, Trump or Biden as president. Pulling out and leaving chaos behind. No motivation for creating a peaceful world as the planet burns. Disastrous. Long live the fossil fuel lobby of Koch, etc. Coal price going through the roof.

US Will Be Ousted by Saudi King Abdullah in Middle-East | by Oui on Feb 27, 2013 |

According to a report that appeared on The Guardian`s website, Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah asked the US repeatedly to attack Iran and destroy its nuclear program, and in 2008 the monarchy's envoy to Washington told US Gen. David Petraeus to "cut off the head of the snake."  

Bandar al-Bush, an alliance lasting three decades « click for article (translated from Arabic)  Prine Bandar meets with President Bush without prior appointment, poured millions into Republican campaigns.

Quotes Sir Tony Blair ten years after invasion ...

    "Sometimes you come to a decision where whichever choice you take
    the consequences are difficult and the choice is ugly..."

Doing the bidding of the Saudi King in the region, after Syria we will have to take care bring democracy to the people of Iran.

    "In a sense what I try to persuade people of now is to understand how complex and difficult a decision it was because I think if we don't understand we won't take the right decision about what I think will be a series of these types of problems that will arise over the next few years. 


    You've got one in Syria right now, you've got one in Iran to come, the issue is how 
do you make the world a safer place?"

So, on this trip to Jeddah, Joe impersonating the worst of American evil George W. Bush.

Our hand is extended to Iran... No such thing as an 'Arab NATO': Saudi FM

This came during a press conference at the conclusion of the Jeddah Security and Development Summit, which was held in the presence of US President Joe Biden.

Bin Farhan said that the Kingdom's hand is extended to Iran to reach normal relations, pointing out that the talks that took place with Iran were positive, but did not reach any results.

He also noted that there were no messages from Iran to the Jeddah Summit, stressing that dialogue and diplomacy are the only solution to Iran's nuclear programme.

Furthermore, the Saudi FM said that no type of military or technical cooperation with Israel was raised or discussed and that there is no such thing as an "Arab NATO," reiterating that there was no discussion of a "defensive alliance" with Israel.

Additionally, he said that the joint Arab action system has reached a stage of "maturity", adding: "We know what we want, and we know how to achieve it... We do not wait for anyone to fulfil our needs."

"We did not discuss the issue of oil production at the Jeddah Summit, and OPEC+ continues its work to assess the markets and what they need," he added.

Bin Farhan also said that the US remains our main strategic partner, stressing that "the kingdom's partnership with America is old and continuous... and the agreements we signed with America did not come to fruition overnight."
