It looks like #Israel is deliberately escalating the whole situation. I mean, striking Iranian targets (with a lot of Syrian 'collateral' damage) in #Damascus and #Aleppo is asking for escalation. It wouldn't surprise me if they do this as a distraction for their crimes in #Gaza, now that multiple Western allies hesitantly start asking questions.

"The Israeli military halts leave for all combat units, calls up reservists, and blocks GPS coordinates in the country as Iran threatens retaliation for deadly strikes on its consulate in Damascus, Syria."

Congratulations for the leftist radical democratic #DEM Party! 🎉

Despite that in #Istanbul many of their electorate voted strategically on the social democratic #CHP (and candidate #İmamoğlu), and despite (suspected) election fraud in (especially) the #Şırnak province, the DEM Party was (as successor of the HDP) able to win more provincies and districts in the #Kurdistan region.

Mastodon now supports automatic switching between the light and dark theme, depending on your system setting.

It will be available in the upcoming 4.3 version, or is already there if your instance runs the nightly code.

You can switch to this new automatic theme in your Appearance preferences. Instance admins can also set it as the default theme (I just did it on mastodon.social and mastodon.online).

This has been done in https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/pull/29748, thanks a lot to @nshki for the initial PR!

Although the Security Council is a relict of the past, and the system of veto power has been (and still is) responsible for many deaths and suffering in the name of ugly geopolitics, this is a very small light at the end of the tunnel of genocide. I'm wondering how this will be enforced, who's going to do things first, are we talking about or Israeli hostages (or both), is Hamas able to find their hostages, will the Israeli Occupation Force move out of the way to let human aid unhindered into the Gaza strip, etc. Too much variables and because as responsible state actor also didn't listen to the , almost never listened to UN resolutions, I wouldn't be surprised that Israel (and their partner in crime the ) just continue with their . Or they will only stop for two weeks and continue double so hard after that.

Al Jazeera: UN Security Council adopts resolution demanding immediate Gaza ceasefire

"The United Nations Security Council has demanded an immediate ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas in Gaza and the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages as the United States abstained from the vote.

The remaining 14 council members voted for the resolution on Monday."

#moscow #russia #geopolitics @geopolitics
please vote what you think is most likely:

@joenepraat@todon.nl avatar

@ErikJonker @geopolitics

Difficult and to early.

I don't think it's the Ukrainian state, because raw terrorism isn't what they do. That doesn't mean it can't be a a far-right Ukrainian militia (would be stupid, but it's not ruled out). A false flag is possible, because Putin did that before in 1999 and even much worse. A terrorist attack by an islamist group is unlikely, because there is no recent conflict between Russia and islamist. Another possibility would be separatists, maybe mixed with islamists (think Dagestani, Chechens are unlikely because of Kadyrov-Putin ties, or one of the other many oppressed minorities). It is also possible that Putin wasn't aware, because the eyes of his intelligence agencies are to much focused on Ukraine right now.

Again, it just to early.

@renchap I found many affected servers that where upgraded to the newest security release. So the problem is not only abandoned servers. Please make manual approval the default and require extra step(s) necessary for open registrations.

See https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/29269, https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/10590 and https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/29270.

  • For global and European sports governing bodies to immediately uphold their statutory obligations – especially their own rules on human rights and non-discrimination given Russian, South African and other precedents. This would include, inter alia, a ban on Israel competing at the 2024 Paris Olympics, UEFA’s European Championship and FIFA’s World Cup. …"

There is an ongoing spam attack on the fediverse for the last couple of days. It's more widespread than before, as attackers are targeting smaller servers to create accounts. Before, usually only mastodon.social was targeted and our team could take care of it. For server administrators out there: If you don't need open registrations, switch over to approval mode. If you do, blocking disposable e-mail providers is a massive stopgap to the problem. Mastodon also supports hCaptcha.

@joenepraat@todon.nl avatar

@Gargron Still the problem is Mastodon. See https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/discussions/29267.

Please see these issues (two of them are created by me and are related) as well:

Require blocking of disposable email providers and/or require a captcha provider when registrations are open


Set new registrations on new servers to manual approval by default


Ability to greylist new servers


Ability to use heuristic spam filtering tools


Instance-wide filtering

BDS Movement: Update: Palestinians call to ban genocidal Israel from Eurovision

"The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) and the Palestinian Journalists’ Syndicate call on the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) to ban Israel from the Eurovision Song Contest – the world’s biggest live music event – or face widespread boycotts.

Israel, considered an apartheid state by major human rights organisations worldwide, is accused by South Africa, supported by tens of states, of genocide against Palestinians in Gaza at the International Court of Justice.

A senior UN human rights official and a prominent Israeli scholar of the Holocaust and genocide have described Israel’s war on the 2.3 million Palestinians in the occupied and besieged Gaza as “a textbook case of genocide.” Dozens of UN experts and hundreds of international law scholars have also warned of “a genocide in the making.” …"

Al Jazeera (Maziar Motamedi, Linah Alsaafin): Israel’s war on Gaza live: Israeli army kills 174 amid ICJ ruling

  • Gaza’s Health Ministry says 174 Palestinians were killed and 310 wounded in the enclave in 24 hours.
  • Israel intensifies bombings in Gaza, even as the International Court of Justice ordered it to take steps to prevent acts of genocide.
  • In its highly anticipated interim decision, the court also said it has jurisdiction to rule in South Africa’s genocide case against Israel but did not call for an immediate ceasefire.
  • Attacks on healthcare facilities continue in southern Gaza, with Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis completely losing power; in Rafah, three people were killed in an attack on a residential home.
  • At least 26,257 people have been killed and 64,797 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7. The death toll in Israel from the October 7 Hamas attacks stands at 1,139.
