Since March 30, 2018 Palestinian refugees in the Gaza Strip–including families, women, and children–have gathered along the Israeli border to highlight their dispossession in 1948 and protest the growing humanitarian catastrophe. From that time through December 16th, 2019, Israeli forces have killed 364 Gazans and injured over 35,000, including women, children, disabled individuals, medics, and journalists. Many have been shot in the back, nearly all were unarmed and posed no risk to the heavily armed Israeli soldiers. During the same period, Gazan resistance forces killed 9 Israelis.

Killing of Palestinians is not new. It has been going on for decades, unabated, uncriticized, and bankrolled by the US. The Leahy Laws enable us to withhold aid to countries that commit human such rights abuses, but in spite of overwhelming proof of abuse by Israel, our politicians refuse to cut off military support.
As is the case every week in the oPt, Israel has been busily using violence to break up peaceful protests, invading villages and arresting Palestinians (including women and children), disrupting freedom of movement, shooting at fishing boats, and demolishing homes. In other words, it was business as usual.
Surveillance footage shows that Yasin al-Saradih ran toward soldiers with an iron bar, soldiers shot, beat and dragged him by his limbs. It was nearly half-hour before he received medical care, eventually succumbing to his wounds. This is contrary to earlier IDF reports that al-Saradih died of smoke inhalation.
Ahed Tamimi is on trial to show that Israel is tough; but what they don’t want to show is the cruelty of the occupation – especially toward children – and the wild disproportion of punishment to “crime.”
A boy who threw stones at IDF jeeps suffered the punishment of execution by a soldier; it was the third time in recent weeks that soldiers aimed at stone-throwers’ heads.
Philip Giraldi discusses the central role of Jewish Americans in the US-Israel relationship and analyzes the actions of some individuals, including Jerry Seinfeld, Chuck Schumer, Rebecca Vilkomerson, etc….
Philip Giraldi reports that a highly focused and well-funded lobby on behalf of Israel has remarkable access both to the US political class and media. Israel has been uniquely successful at imposing its will over Congress and the White House, as the U.S. has largely become an Israeli puppet…
Israel has managed to turn 50 years of Palestinian resistance to occupation into a cottage industry, and is now selling the concept of a police state to the world
The Times of Israel and others report on the fraudulent binary options industry that generates $5 to $10 billion a year and largely emanates from Israel. For 10 years it scammed hundreds of thousands of victims worldwide out of billions of dollars with little or no intervention from Israeli law enforcement. Israel’s current bill would allow binary options pushers to re-brand their product and continue to defraud customers abroad with impunity. An analyst writes: ‘Israel is so corrupt that these borderline criminals run the country.’
