SulaymanF,

This is a myth. The US, Egypt, and Israel all agree that Hamas has not been stealing or diverting any of the limited food arriving since October.

Israel Was Behind Attacks on Major Gas Pipelines in Iran, Officials Say (www.nytimes.com)

Israel carried out covert attacks on two major natural gas pipelines inside Iran this week, disrupting the flow of heat and cooking gas to provinces with millions of people, according to two Western officials and a military strategist affiliated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps....

SulaymanF,

That’s not related. Saudi tortures and executes people and they’re America’s allies. Meanwhile don’t try to downplay genocide because they don’t have the same morality on LGBT you have.

SulaymanF,

Israel fires on any ship that breaks the blockade of Gaza. They killed 9 people last time the aid ship Mavi Marmara tried to help. Israel will likely shoot this one too.

SulaymanF,

The moron overplayed his hand. He promised he would fight to the death, so who would make a deal with someone who is that genocidal?

SulaymanF,

Disgusting. Cowards who help starve millions of people because they’re afraid of what others might say of them. But hypocrites too since they turn a blind eye to whatever Israel does with the weapons given to them.

SulaymanF,

Because Egypt is a dictatorship that doesn’t care about Egyptians or Palestinians. The general sisi accepted billions of dollars in bribes and therefore does what the US and Saudi want. (Saudi doesn’t like Hamas because they view it as related to Muslim Brotherhood and thus a threat to their monarchy)

But nice try trying to engage in Whataboutism.

SulaymanF,

You forgot the part in 2006 when Fatah tried to overthrow the PA in a coup and Israel publicly took their side and armed them. Hamas repelled the coup attempt and there’s been multiple attempts at redoing the election but neither side trusts the other and Hamas is not going to let coup people run for election when they tried to overthrow a result they didn’t like.

SulaymanF,

Perhaps you should learn history; Fatah lost seats to Hamas in the 2006 election when Hamas won the plurality of the vote. Fatah decided to try a coup after being egged on by Israel.

SulaymanF,

The guy who refused every debate until now?

Trump would refuse debates if given a neutral moderator. And I promise if he did a single debate he’d complain it was unfair no matter the outcome.

SulaymanF,

He claimed the gun just went off when he tripped and fell. Fortunately the jury didn’t buy his defense.

SulaymanF,

The GCC is Arab countries and Turkey is not an Arab country. And the GCC are dictators not theocracies.

SulaymanF,

According to the comics, webbing dissolves and fades away after a day.

SulaymanF,

It could have been an hour, it was first mentioned in the earliest comics that the webbing fades away, and I’m not sure what they said more recently.

SulaymanF,

He ran out of money prematurely, and the campaign came to a screeching halt. He could have tried to limp along to the primary but he would look very bad doing so and every reporter would mock him, or he drops out early.

SulaymanF,

He raised his hand during the debate when the moderators asked who on stage would vote for Trump if he was the nominee. Chris Christie mocked him for looking around first before raising his hand.

SulaymanF,

He tried being just as stubborn and mean as Trump but it didn’t work out for him. Everyone who tries copying Trump fails.

SulaymanF,

At least the coverage is better than the NYTimes using the passive voice to claim he was killed by a bullet but not saying where the bullet came from in the headline

Netanyahu defies Biden, insisting there’s ‘no space’ for Palestinian state (www.theguardian.com)

Defiant Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu doubled down on opposition to Palestinian statehood, deepening the divide with Israel’s closest international allies, as cracks in his wartime “unity” government became increasingly evident....

SulaymanF,

Israel has spent decades building a powerful lobbying bloc in Washington. American-Israel PAC is one of the top 3 donors of Congress competing with NRA. They made ties with evangelicals and give free vacations to Israel for every politician. They establish ties with both major political parties and spend millions to defeat any congressman who criticizes Israel.

SulaymanF,

Foreign countries are legally banned from donating to US politicians and any foreign lobbyists have to be registered. AIPAC has skirted around those laws and even been caught in some scandals over it (e.g. Larry Franklin passing classified documents to the Israeli ambassador) but has made powerful friends and avoided law enforcement.

Alex Jones is profiting from his new game on Steam — while refusing to pay the Sandy Hook families he defamed (www.mediamatters.org)

Following his trial for defamation of the families of the children and school staff killed in the Sandy Hook massacre, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is using Valve Corp.’s Steam, the world’s largest digital distribution platform for PC games, to sell an Infowars-themed video game. Jones claims to have earned hundreds of...

SulaymanF,

They will, but he threw up roadblocks that the court has to move through. He moved his money behind dummy corporations that the court has to investigate first before they can “pierce the corporate veil,” for example.

SulaymanF,

Genocide is not just extinction but an attempt to destroy or erase a nation. Likud’s charter calls for the elimination of a Palestinian state and its leaders have talked openly about using the military to drive all Palestinians into Egypt and Jordan and eliminate the idea of a Palestine. That IS genocide.

The U.S. and Israel: An Embrace Shows Signs of Strain After Oct. 7 (www.nytimes.com)

The resolve of [Biden’s] dramatic presidential trip to Israel has given way to frustrating phone calls, sharp public comments and exhausting marathon meetings. The relationship has grown increasingly fraught as Mr. Biden has involved himself more intensely in the conflict than almost any other issue in three years in office....

SulaymanF, (edited )

That decision, perhaps more than any other, would come to define Mr. Biden’s approach to what has become the most divisive foreign policy crisis of his presidency. He had to go. He had to see them face to face. With that, he effectively took ownership of the war that would follow in all its overpowering brutality, managing it personally at great political risk to himself at home and abroad.

It’s frustrating how the NYT is biased in favor of Biden and Israel.

But there is no serious discussion inside the administration of a meaningful change in policy, like cutting off the arms supply to Israel. Instead, Mr. Biden remains determined to navigate the crisis within the crisis by using the credibility he earned through steadfast support of Israel to shape its next chapter, although it is unclear how much leverage that gives him.

What credibility? A CBS poll of Democrats in December shows 38% say Biden is showing too much support for Israel, up from 28%. Also 26% want Biden to support pro Palestine protests in US.

What a frustrating read. The author wants everyone to know how hard Biden is working to help Israel and how badly they need him. But Netanyahu is pushing back against Biden.

As for Mr. Biden’s team, the real debate is about the language to use and how hard to push, but no one inside is really pressing for a dramatic policy shift like suspending weapons supplies to Israel — if for no other reason than they understand the president is not willing to do so.

For all the disagreement, there is no serious discussion within the Biden administration about cutting Israel off or putting conditions on security aid. On Friday, three days after the Dermer meeting, the State Department agreed to send $147.5 million in 155-millimeter artillery shells and related equipment, invoking emergency rules to bypass congressional review a second time and again angering Democratic lawmakers.

All this talk of considerations for Palestinian civilians is for show. Imagine if the US only criticized other terrorists with words but did nothing to stop them and even handed them weapons.

SulaymanF,

Living next to the ANC was unacceptable to South Africans too. Same with IRA next to British people. But a peace deal was made.
