UN urges Israel and Gaza to ‘step back from the brink’ of war

After IDF’s single largest bombing campaign in Gaza since 2014, & Hamas’ rocket response, a UN rep called for moderation & promised that UN would not forget people of Gaza.

Netanyahu explained Israel’s strategy of using brute strength until Palestinians get the message that incendiary balloons are unacceptable.

Meanwhile, 2 teenage Palestinian boys were killed in Israeli rocket attacks; 4 Israelis were injured by rockets.

Jerusalem: The Not-so-eternal Capital of the Jewish People

Ha’aretz reports: Jerusalem has existed for over 7,000 years. Jews have been unquestionably connected with the city for 3,000 or so – yet it functioned as their capital only for short periods in history.

Messianic U.S. Israel Axis Showcased at Jerusalem Embassy Ceremony

Today, unarmed Gazans died by the dozens simultaneously with a star-studded celebration in Jerusalem. American pastors John Hagee and Robert Jeffress, well-known bigots, preached and prayed. Donald Trump was practically worshiped. No amount of spin could turn this debacle into a genuinely admirable day for Israel.

Trump Violates the Iran Nuclear Deal — Ignoring U.S. and Israeli Generals Who Support It

A star-studded list of generals and spy chiefs – US & Israeli – agree that the US should stay in JCPOA. But a reality star, a radical, an Arab man-child, & a politician who has been crying wolf about Iran since 1992, these guys carry the day. Trump & Co. don’t want peace & safety. They want war with Iran.

Is Iran really a nuclear threat?

Investigative journalist Gareth Porter dispels myths about Iran’s alleged nuclear program: Israel has been crying wolf about Iran & nukes since the 1980s (including likely forging documents), while the IAEA has been declaring Tehran’s compliance; the Ayatollah has maintained that WMDs are “unIslamic,” and Iran hasn’t used any (even against Iraq’s WMDs); Iran needs ballistic missiles as a deterrent since it has no air force; and it has never threatened aggression toward Israel.

Leahy Law would cut aid to Israel, but no one wants to enforce it

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.

The Mideast Peace Plan Is Nearly Finished. Is It Dead on Arrival?

President Trump’s “ultimate deal” is said to be nearly ready for unveiling, but will Palestinians even look at it? The climate is not conducive to success, with Palestinians in boycott mode, Netanyahu looking at fraud charges, Kushner on shaky ground, and Trump himself already busy with North Korea.
