Last year, March 30, the so-called "Great March of the Return" began. The protests calls for Israeli authorities to lift their 11-year illegal blockade on Gaza and to allow Palestinian refugees to return to their villages and towns.
Exactly a year ago - it was the bloodiest day of this massacre - May 14, 2018. It is well known that this war is financed by the United States:
The U.S. provides Israel $10.5 million in military aid each day, while it gives the Palestinians $0 in military aid.
Exactly a year ago, the United States made a gift to the state of Israel: the embassy moved to Jerusalem (as a symbol of the Israeli control of this city). The Israeli troo... show more


Did the IDF (dleiberately) destroy Palestinian cultural institutions?

These photographs show the Said al-Mishal Centre (not the “National Cultural Center”) in Gaza that was destroyed during an air strike on 9 August 2018 at the end of a “round of escalation” between the militant group Hamas and the IDF. Here’s how the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center summed up the events that eventually led to the Centre’s destruction:

From the Information Centre's article:
On August 8 and 9, 2018, there was a fifth round of escalation between Hamas and the IDF. Hamas and the other terrorist organizations fired about 180 rockets and mortar shells at Israeli territory. The IDF responded with extensive attacks on Hamas’ infrastructure and assets. During and between the rounds of escalation (end of May to August 9, 2018), more than 610 rockets and mortar shells were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israeli territory. At the same time, contacts have been held to reach an agreement between t

Rashida Tlaib (D - MI) makes equivocal statement about Palestine's role in Holocaust

"There’s always kind of a calming feeling when I think of the tragedy of the Holocaust, that it was my ancestors – Palestinians – who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity and their existence, in many ways, has been wiped out… in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-Holocaust, post-tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that in many ways,” Tlaib said.

When asked about the two-state solution, Tlaib criticized Netanyahu and said she does not believe a two-state solution is currently possible because Netanyahu's doctrine prevents it. She added that the only way for a two-state solution to be possible today would be if Netanyahu "gets up tomorrow morning and decides: ‘I’m going to take down the walls, I’m not going to expand settlements, enough is enough.'"

In defense of Israeli cyber space, IDF exploded Hamas building

A ceasefire between Israel and Hamas was announced early Monday morning, bringing an end to the recent round of fighting. The Israeli army lifted all restrictions for Israel’s south at 7:00 am, allowing schools to be opened as usual. 690 rockets were launched from Gaza to Israel in the 48 hours of fighting, and Israel responded by bombing 350 Islamic Jihad and Hamas targets. Some direct rocket strikes resulted in four dead and four wounded on the Israeli side. Palestinian authorities reported 23 dead, including two pregnant women and two infants.

Former chief of staff of the Israeli military Benny Gantz, the current leader of the centrist Blue and White party, said Israel’s military has lost its ability to deter Hamas from acting, criticizing the current government by calling the recent round a surrender to Hamas’ blackmail. Gantz himself has been heavily condemned by right-wing politicians during the recent election campaign for being too soft on Gaza and Hamas.

Israeli National Union chairman Bezalel Smotrich calls for deliberate murder of 700 Gazans

“The battle with Gaza needed to end with seven hundred terrorists killed – one for every rocket fired at Israel, with heavy physical damage to Hamas, the kind that will take years for them to recover from so that it will be difficult for them to think of attacking again.”

Twenty-three Gazans were reported killed in Israeli retaliatory strikes, including nine people identified as terrorists from either Hamas or the Islamic Jihad organizations.

US send out naval ships in order to defend their ally in the Middle East

"In response to a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings, the United States is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the US Central Command region," Mr. Bolton said in a statement.

"The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forces."
You brandmarked the IRGC a terrorist organisation, how aren't you about to march forward to war against Iran? This is typical warmongering at its finest, to deny it, on the other hand, is like calling your enemy dumb.
The statement did not specifically state why the deployment is taking place now, but it comes during a deadly escalation between Gaza-based Palestinian militants and Israel in which the two sides have traded a barrage of rocket fire and air strikes in recent days.

Trump's son in law and senior adviser not going to talk about two-state-solution

Mr Kushner, speaking at a dinner of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said the Middle East peace proposal he has been putting together was close to release and that Israel and the Palestinians should wait to see it before making any unilateral moves.
How would you tell Israel not to annex any more settlements in the Middle East when your father-in-law is closely working together with one of the parties' prime minister? This is hardly feasible.
“What we will be able to put together is a solution that we believe is a good starting point for the political issues and then an outline for what can be done to help these people start living a better life,” Mr Kushner said.

Palestinian Authority on the verge of collapsing financially

Israel is withholding about $14.8 million of the roughly $242.2 million a month in tax funds that it collects for the Palestinians, claiming that money was being used to support families of terrorists. The Palestinians, in protest, have refused to accept any of the tax transfers.
Damn... On the one hand, this is only going to worsen their miserable situation and therefore fueling hate and increasing attacks against its own country, but on the other hand, they are right, much of the money is also donated to families of martyrs, as they call them. It's a dilemma indeed...
She also urged the ad hoc liaison committee, which co-ordinates development aid to the Palestinians, to use its meeting Tuesday in Brussels to work with Israel and the Palestinian Authority to resolve the crisis.

Today's important court rulings from TX and KS

1. Kansas: Pro-abortion ruling:

The court declared for the first time Friday that the Kansas Constitution protects abortion rights. It says the state's Bill of Rights grants a right to personal autonomy that gives a woman a right to end her pregnancy.
Is this going to become a precedent for other states to alter their ruling in favour of women? I hope so.
Abortion opponents want to revise the Kansas Constitution after a state Supreme Court ruling protecting abortion rights.
If the shoe doesn't fit, change your foot instead of looking for a different shoe of the same making. In this case, it should be: If the rule doesn't fit you, deal with it because it's none of your business, in no way.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu plans to name Golan Heights settlement after Donald Trump

The naked appeal to Drumpf’s vanity — proposing to add his name to the map of the Middle East even as it disappears from apartment buildings in New York — came as Israeli officials expressed alarm that the American president had not yet done enough to sabotage the Iran nuclear deal.

“We have to get others to walk away because the deal is still alive,” Israel’s American-born ambassador to Washington, Ron Dermer, said last month at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference. The prospect of Drumpf’s successor rejoining the deal, he added, “is something that has to be seen as totally unacceptable.”

Sanders, who would be the first Jewish president of the United States, was asked by a young Jewish activist on Monday during a CNN town hall if his prior criticism of Netanyahu would damage relations with Israel should he be elected.

Is Bernie Stealing Trump's 'No More Wars' Issue? - Original

Does Trump really want to go into 2020 as a war party president?

Does he want to go into 2020 with Democrats denouncing "Trump’s endless wars" in the Middle East? Because that is where he is headed.
Looking closely at the front-running candidates for the Democratic nomination of 2020 – Joe Biden, Sanders, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker – not one appears to be as hawkish as Trump has become.

Israeli PM Netanyahu faces heavy backlash with elecotral campaign to annex Jewish settlements in the West Bank, not accepting a Palestinian state

Malki told the Associated Press Sunday on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Jordan that Netanyahu’s pledge was likely aimed at rallying his nationalist base in the final stretch of a tight race.
Sounds about likely. He is going to need this base to win the election after more moderate candidates have emerged during the electoral campaign season.
Polls have indicated a close race, though Netanyahu’s Likud party is expected to have a better chance than Gantz’s Blue and White slate to form a ruling coalition. Polls forecast more than 60 out of 120 parliament seats for the Likud and smaller right-wing and ultra-Orthodox Jewish parties.

The interviewer asked why he hadn’t annexed some of the larger settlements during his current term. “The question you are asking is an interesting question, whether we will move to the next stage and t

The Palestinian checkpoint experience

Every day, over 80,000 Palestinians cross into Israel. Eighty-five percent of them are men who work in Israel. The rest come for medical, educational or other purposes.

But still I had questions: Are the crossings really mere security barriers, similar to airports where those with nefarious intentions are caught? Or, as some claim, are they places where Israeli soldiers humiliate the population whose movements they restrict?

I started photographing the people tentatively, afraid they would be hostile — or worse. I imagined them seeing me as the enemy. Perhaps they did. But once I became comfortable, I found the reactions to my presence ranging from none to mild interest, and even to smiles and posing. I felt no hostility aside from what I projected from my imagination.

These photos humanize the Palestinians in a way that Israelis don’t often see and force us to see a glimpse of the endless waiting that is their plight. There are few experiences more frustrating, a

UN envoy to the Middle East warns of catastrophe in the Gaza strip

“I am concerned that we may once again be facing another very dangerous escalation of violence in Gaza with potentially catastrophic consequences,” Mladenov told a council meeting on the Middle East.

He spoke hours before Israel threatened to resume bombing raids and Gazan terrorists fired a rocket at Israel, marking a resumption of fighting after a day of calm.

“A new conflict will be devastating for the Palestinian people. It will have consequences for Israelis who live in the vicinity of the Gaza perimeter, and it is likely to have regional repercussions,” Mladenov warned.

Romania and Honduras decided to declare Jerusalem Israel's capital

The leaders of Romania and Honduras announced on Sunday that they would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, following the lead of U.S. President Donald Drumpf.
And Honduras closely behind. Never forget about that.
"Today I have announced the first step, which is to open a trade office in Jerusalem, the capital of the state of Israel, and this will be an extension of our embassy in Tel Aviv," Hernandez said in a statement issued by his government. He said the office would open immediately.

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, a government rival who's in charge of the Eastern European nation's foreign policy, blasted his country's prime minister over the move, saying he had not been consulted on the matter. He further accused Dancila of "total ignorance" of foreign policy.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D - MN) claims Israel to be historical homeland of Palestine

The Minnesota representative said that “without a state, the Palestinian people live in a state of permanent refugeehood and displacement. This, too, is a refugee crisis, and they, too, deserve freedom and dignity.”

“I support a two-state solution, with internationally recognized borders, which allows for both Israelis and Palestinians to have their own sanctuaries and self-determination,” she wrote. “This has been official bipartisan US policy across two decades and has been supported by each of the most recent Israeli and Palestinian leaders, as well as the consensus of the Israeli security establishment.”

“When I criticize certain Israeli government actions in Gaza or settlements in the West Bank, it is because I believe these actions not only threaten the possibility of peace in the region – they also threaten the United States’ own national security interests,” Omar said.

Israel responds with missile fire after one missile departs from Gaza to Tel Aviv

Four people were wounded in the strikes on Gaza. Israel's military said a headquarters of the militant group Hamas was among the targets.

Shortly after midnight, Israeli jets and helicopters attacked dozens of sites in Gaza belonging to Hamas and the Islamic Jihad group, Hamas sources said.

Air raid sirens again rang out in Israeli towns close to Gaza overnight and on Friday morning. The IDF said nine more projectiles had been launched, six of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome air defence system.
