The climate alarmists have been catastrophising about recent heatwaves in Mali and Burkina Faso. In fact, average temperatures in those countries have barely risen in the last 85 years, says Chris Morrision.

The depths of depravity of Israel show no signs of finding new lows. In the past few months they have massacred thousands of civilians, collapsed buildings, hospitals, shot at people rushing to get food aid, shot aid works, dropped bombs on large gatherings of civiliams.

Today though at Middle East Eye they report on this story:

Recently Israeli forces claimed they attacked the Al-Shifa hospital and killed many leading Hamas leaders. As with everything issued by them it is of course suspect. Now the truth has come out via a young boy who survived the massacre and in conjunction with evidence from Hamas that many of the people they claimed to have killed are not in fact even in Gaza, it turns out that Israeli forces carried out a genocidal massacre

The argument is based on both ethical and factual points. I will start by commenting on the latter, as unfortunately it seems like these comrades have fallen into an alternative reality, shaped by Russia Today and other Russian-sponsored social media disinformation. read full story / add a comment

Tucker Carlson who has a following of millions and is even more popular since he was dropped from Fix News is of the few American journalist to challenge the narrative on many issues.

Given the NATO-Ukraine vs Russia is not going according to the plan of the USA to trigger regime change in Russia despite over $100 billion being wasted on it and at least 500,000 Ukrainians dead on behalf of US strategic interests and courtesy of the Nord Stream gas pipeline destruction carried out by the US that is leading de-industrialization of Germany and hence Europe, and of course the whole pretext of the war, then it is probably important that the public who have largely only heard the Western propaganda, should get a chance to hear what the other side has to say read full story / add a comment

Larry Johnson on his blog reports on the hideous actions of the Israeli state and how they are undeniably behaving like real Nazis.

He writes: If you thought that Israel has a highly professional, well-trained army, think again. The photo above shows the Israelis acting like the Nazis in Latvia in World War II. These men are not Hamas fighters. They are civilians. The bare chested man is a physician. Why is Israel, like the Nazis, photographing their victims after stripping them of their clothes? Also note that in the photo above you do not see piles of weapons. These men were not caring firearms. Just compare the photos. read full story / add a comment

The Israeli "Hannibal Directive" is the name of a controversial procedure used by Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) to prevent the capture of Israeli soldiers by the enemy and it says stopping them from being taken prisoner should be prevented by all means including up to killing their own forces. It seems during the Hamas raid on Oct 7th (2023), that Israel took this procedure to absurd levels and killed a lot more of their own including children to kill just a small number of their enemy. Then they used the death of their own by their own forces as the centre peice of the propaganda drive to launch and justify their genocidal campaign in Gaza.

The background for this comes from a report from Max Blumenthal of https://thegrayzone.com read full story / add a comment

Each year, tens of thousands of elderly and terminally ill patients are quietly euthanised in NHS facilities. In hospitals, care homes and hospices, behind closed doors, their deaths are hastened in what appears to be a caring and humane way. But how has this practice of euthanasia – illegal in the UK and carrying a life prison sentence – become so widespread and acceptable? And why are people who are nowhere near the end of their lives being given killer ‘cocktails’ of drugs that are used in many US states for executions? read full story / add a comment

There is clear evidence that Israeli has for many years planned to drive all the Palestinians out of their former ancestral lands and to drive them out of Gaza and then later the West Bank. Their current openly stated plan is to drive the South towards Egypt and across the border.

Right now they are bombing indiscriminately all over the Gaza and particularly northern Gaza to destroy everything and drive the people Southwards. At the same time Netanyahu has been embroiled in charges of corruption and political scandal and Israeli society is pretty much divided over his attempts to strip the judicial system of its power and make them political appointees.

So putting things in context, the whole idea that this was a surprise attack is extremely fishy and now evidence is pouring in to show that the whole thing has been orchestrated by sinister forces. The items below are collection of articles but the first is an of an interview of an Israeli settler who claimed the IDF/police were involved in the slaughter. read full story / add a comment

If the world public really wants to understand the secret of the indomitable strength of Israeli barbarism upon unarmed Palestinian civilian men women and children with such impunity before the impotent world, fully aided and abetted by Western governments, with full propaganda cover by the Western news media, they have to understand the power of the name Rothschild and its ability to hide in plain-sight because it owns all governments and all news media...

This set of harrowing videos were republished on Larry Johnsons website sonar21.com where he states:

I am continuing to hammer on the theme that Israel’s indiscriminate attacks in Gaza, while being praised or tolerated in the West, is having the opposite effect in the rest of the world. The bombing and strafing of Palestinian civilians at hospitals and schools is fueling a deepening outrage outside of the West and turning many nations that had reasonably strong relations with Israel against it. I noted in a previous post that Chile, Colombia and Bolivia have recalled their ambassadors, which is a de facto break in relations. We can now add to that list Bahrain and Honduras.

1st Nov 2023 “It became evident to US officials that Israeli leaders believed mass civilian casualties were an acceptable price in the military campaign,” The New York Times reported on Monday.

“In private conversations with American counterparts, Israeli officials referred to how the United States and other allied powers resorted to devastating bombings in Germany and Japan during World War II – including the dropping of the two atomic warheads in Hiroshima and Nagasaki – to try to defeat those countries,” the newspaper added.

Despite this horrifying knowledge, the Biden administration still adamantly opposes a ceasefire in Israel’s extermination campaign in Gaza. read full story / add a comment

It is important to also recognize the attacks by Hamas did not happen in a vacuum.

The Palestinian people have been subjected to 56 years of suffocating occupation.

They have seen their land steadily devoured by settlements and plagued by violence; their economy stifled; their people displaced and their homes demolished. Their hopes for a political solution to their plight have been vanishing.

But the grievances of the Palestinian people cannot justify the appalling attacks by Hamas. And those appalling attacks cannot justify the collective punishment of the Palestinian people. read full story / add a comment

On Wednesday evening, the Israeli army bombed many homes, buildings, public facilities, and a UNRWA-run school, killing dozens of Palestinians and wounding hundreds in the Gaza Strip.

Medical sources said dozens of Palestinians were killed and injured after the army fired missiles at a school run by the UNRWA near Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, where families have been staying after the army bombarded their homes in northern and central Gaza Strip. read full story / add a comment

No, not really. Israel did not confess war crimes. It never does. It proudly announced that it will now commit a war crime:

Israel's defence minister described Palestinians as "human animals" and vowed to "act accordingly," as fighter jets unleashed a massive bombing campaign on the Gaza Strip. read full story / add a comment
