If you are not already anti-Israel, I don't even know what you are doing here, or how you can call yourself a leftist.

Some people unfamiliar with the subject think we merely oppose the settlements:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israeli_settlement

Quote
Israeli settlements are civilian communities inhabited by Israeli citizens, almost exclusively of Jewish ethnicity,[1][2] built predominantly on lands within the Palestinian territories, which Israel has militarily occupied since the 1967 Six-Day War,[3] and partly on lands considered Syrian territory also militarily occupied by Israel since the 1967 war. Such settlements within Palestinian territories currently exist in Area C of the West Bank and in East Jerusalem, and within Syrian territory in the Golan Heights.
...
The international community considers the settlements in occupied territory to be illegal,[11] and the United Nations has repeatedly upheld the view that Israel's construction of settlements constitutes a violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.[12][13]

We of course oppose the settlements, but not because we have any concern for so-called "international law", for the same "international law" recognizes Israel's 1948 territory as "legal", when morally Israel has no better claim to its 1948 territory than any of its post-1967 territory. To recap, the territory bequeathed to Israel by the Balfour Declaration:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balfour_Declaration

was from the territory covered by the British Mandate for Palestine:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Mandate_for_Palestine_(legal_instrument)

which itself refers to British colonial territory of Mandatory Palestine:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandatory_Palestine

If property belongs to A, but is stolen by B who then gives it to C, C has no just ownership of it. On the contrary, if C is aware that it is stolen property and yet accepts it (without immediately returning it to A), C is complicit in the theft. In this case, B and C are obviously the British Empire and Israel respectively. But who is A? The answer is found here:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McMahon–Hussein_Correspondence

Quote
The McMahon–Hussein Correspondence was a series of letters exchanged during World War I in which the British government agreed to recognize Arab independence after the war in exchange for the Sharif of Mecca launching the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire.[2][3]
...
Following the publication of the November 1917 Balfour Declaration, which promised a national home for the Jews in Palestine, and the subsequent leaking of the secret 1916 Sykes–Picot Agreement in which Britain and France proposed to split and occupy parts of the territory, the Sharif and other Arab leaders considered the agreements made in the McMahon–Hussein Correspondence had been violated.

The flag of Hejaz (owned by Sharif Hussein bin Ali, leader of the Arab Revolt):

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Hejaz

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flag_of_Hejaz_1917.svg

is the flag of Palestine:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flag_of_Palestine.svg

Thus all territory formerly of Mandatory Palestine currently under Israel control originally belonged to Hejaz, and thus should be returned to Palestine, the evident heir to Hejaz. Britain in particular has a redemptive duty to deploy the British military against Israel. Countries (France, US, Germany, etc.) which have since given aid to Israel:

Quote
The film reveals how France helped Israel on its nuclear programme in exchange for support in the Suez War. In the mid-1950s, relations between the two countries were warming because of their shared anxiety over burgeoning nationalist movements in North Africa.
...
The agreement with France was unprecedented. Until then, no country had supplied another with the means for developing a nuclear capability.

israelipalestinian.procon.org/view.answers.php?questionID=000594

Quote
Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. To date, the United States has provided Israel $121 billion (current, or non-inflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance.

After the United States, the principal donor of both economic and military aid to Israel is Germany.
...
The total of German assistance in all of these categories to the Israeli government, Israeli individuals and Israeli private institutions has been some $31 billion or $5,345 per capita.

and, to a lesser extent, all countries which voted in favour of the UN Partition Plan for Palestine:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_Partition_Plan_for_Palestine#Final_vote

also have a redemptive duty to participate militarily in invading Israel, with the objective of returning to Palestine the entire territory currently controlled by Israel. In particular, Britain:

news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/newsnight/4789832.stm

Quote
The UK supplied Israel with quantities of plutonium while Harold Wilson was prime minister, BBC Newsnight can reveal.
...
Under Wilson, Britain also sold Israel tons of chemicals used to make boosted atom bombs 20 times more powerful than Hiroshima or even Hydrogen Bombs.

In Harold Macmillan's time the UK supplied uranium 235 and the heavy water which allowed Israel to start up its nuclear weapons production plant at Dimona - heavy water which British intelligence estimated would allow Israel to make "six nuclear weapons a year".

and France (see above) have a redemptive duty to be on the receiving end of the Samson Option:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samson_Option

On a deeper level, why does the concept of a Jewish ethnostate exist in the first place? The answer is Jewish identity:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jews

Therefore even if the present territory controlled by Israel is returned to Palestine, so long as Jews continue to exist, they will sooner or later try to create another Jewish ethnostate. The very notion of an ethnostate is the fundamental problem; indeed Israel was originally not the name of a place, but another name for the Tanakh patriarch Jacob:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob

Thus, to be truly anti-Israel, we must also be anti-Jewish and anti-Judaism. This is the full meaning of anti-Zionism. And no, we are not "anti-Semites". Considering that most speakers of Semitic languages are non-Jewish and especially that Semitic-speaking anti-Zionists outnumber Semitic-speaking Jews:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semitic_languages

Quote
The most widely spoken Semitic languages today are (numbers given are for native speakers only) Arabic (300 million),[5] Amharic (22 million),[6] Tigrinya (7 million),[7] Hebrew (~5 million native/L1 speakers),[8] Tigre (~1.05 million), Aramaic (575,000 to 1 million largely Assyrian fluent speakers)[9][10][11] and Maltese (482,880 speakers).[12]

the popular Jewish false accusation of anti-Zionists as "anti-Semites" is revealed as nothing but misdirection.

Operation Northern Shield is an ongoing Israeli military operation that was announced and started on 4 December 2018. The operation’s declared goal is to locate and destroy Hezbollah tunnels [1] that reach into Northern Israel from Lebanon.[2][3] According to Israel, this operation is part of the ongoing Iran–Israel proxy conflict.[4] Hezbollah, considered a terrorist organization by Western governments and the Gulf Cooperation Council, is influenced and financed by Iran.

www.csmonitor.com/World/Middle-East/2018/1214/Israel-booms-with-babies-as-developed-world-s-birthrates-plummet.-Here-s-why

Quote
Pro-natalist Israel is having a sustained baby boom, and now has the highest per capita rate of population growth in the developed world, experts say.

Families here have an average of 3.1 children, compared with 1.7 in other developed countries. At this rate Israel’s population, which currently numbers 8.7 million, could soar to 15 million by 2050.
...
The importance of having children is a focus in Israel as it is in most parts of the world, but what makes the attitude distinctive in the country’s Jewish sector is a unique combination of societal messages and policies. Foremost is a lingering post-Holocaust imperative to replace the 6 million who were murdered, but the list also includes fears of Arab demographic dominance and of the next impending war, and economic incentives from the government that include bankrolling fertility treatments, even in-vitro fertilization.

Driving this focus, argues Orna Donath, a sociologist who researches motherhood, “is the collective fear of annihilation. It continues to haunt us, and children are seen as symbolizing a continuance of life, of survival.”

Birthrates have long been especially high among ultra-Orthodox Jews, a small if highly visible minority in Israel, with the average family having close to seven children, although that number has begun to drop slightly in the past decade.

But even among secular Jews, three children is the norm. Families with one and even two children are often looked upon with pity. People often assume the parent or parents must have fertility issues or are “selfish,” says Daphna Birenbaum Carmeli, a sociologist at Haifa University who researches Israel’s pro-natalist policies.
...
It’s the intensity of this fixation on family that makes Israel different from its counterparts in Europe and the United States, argues Elly Teman, a medical anthropologist and senior lecturer at Ruppin College, in central Israel.

“In America you are an individual who is not necessarily going to live close to your parents. But in Israel the whole basis of society is familial,” Dr. Teman says. “The metaphors used describing the nation as one body, one family, is an example of this. It often comes out when we are having a security crisis. The idea of family as the basic unit of Jewish society adds to this narrative: This is how Jews have always survived.”
...
The Israeli attitude toward children and families affects immigrants, as well, Teman says. She points to the example of the wave of immigrants who came to Israel from the former Soviet Union. Those who came as adults usually had one child. By contrast, those who came as teenagers and absorbed the societal message have – for the most part – gone on to have two to three children.

“There is pressure on people here, a message that the only way to be included in society is through having children,” says Teman.
...
Some women have had as many as 25 attempts at IVF, and she says she came across two women in her research who had 37 attempts.

“When we ask women how many cycles are they willing to go through, their reply is the same: ‘As much as is takes,’” she says.

Conversely, she observes, the state does very little to encourage or facilitate adoption, which in most cases requires an international search.

“My own theory is that Israel cultivates this notion of a tribe, of bio-connectivity,” she says, to cement the Jewish people to their return to this, their ancient homeland.

We cultivate this notion of nuking.

The biggest exporter of unmanned aerial vehicles, which are fast becoming essential to governments worldwide for both military and civilian uses, isn’t the United States, China or other major power.

Quote
Israeli forces expelled a Palestinian family from their home in the Muslim Quarter of occupied East Jerusalem’s Old City on Sunday and handed it to Jewish settlers.

On Sunday, with no prior warning, Israeli forces surrounded the house and blocked the road leading to it, eyewitnesses told Wattan TV.

They then stormed the house to forcibly evacuate it and prevented family members from collecting their belongings.

“They destroyed me. They destroyed my life. They took everything I own here. My entire life is here,” Rania Abu Asab said in a video after she was kicked out of her house.
...
The expulsion of tens of thousands of Palestinians from western Jerusalem and the takeover of their homes was part of the 1948 Nakba – the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians carried out by Zionist forces to establish the state of Israel in their place.
...
The court’s ruling is made possible by Israel’s 1950 Absentee Property Law, which allows Israel to seize land and property owned by Palestinian refugees who fled or were expelled from their homes during and after the Nakba.

Under a 1970 amendment to its law, Israel allowed Jews to reclaim Jerusalem properties they left in 1948, but did not allow the same right to Palestinians – a blatantly racist measure.
...
Under discriminatory Israeli law, the Abu Asab family cannot return to their original home in Baqa or even demand compensation.

Another study of Israeli fertility:

taubcenter.org.il/why-are-there-so-many-children-in-israel/

Quote
Another argument is that Israel’s high fertility is driven by certain parts of the population, such as Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) women, having many children (the fertility rate of Haredi women is indeed quite high at around 7 children per woman).

However, the rise in Israel’s fertility over the last two decades has been largely driven by the secular and traditional Jewish populations, whose combined fertility rate is greater than 2.2, which is itself higher than the overall fertility in any other OECD country.
...
in almost every other developed country, more educated women have fewer children than less educated women. However, by age 40, Israeli women with a college degree have the same number of children as those whose highest level of education is high school.

To a large degree, the reasons behind Israel’s fertility trends remain a mystery. However, they will continue to impact Israeli society. As direct result of these fertility patterns, a higher percentage of children in Israel are being born to older and more-educated parents than is the case in other developed countries.

This has implications for education, social and health policy. Older parents tend to be wealthier and more financially stable, which influences their own children’s outcomes across a wide range of domains, and parent’s levels of education also have indirect effects on outcomes for other children in their neighborhoods, which allows for positive spillover effects.

As policy makers look into the future, these implications of Israel’s exceptional fertility profile need to be taken into account.

Nukes.

"All Israelis were deeply moved when President Trump made his historic decision to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights," Netanyahu said in a video posted to YouTube. "Therefore, after the Passover holiday, I intend to bring to the government a resolution calling for a new community on the Golan Heights named after President Donald J. Trump."

Trump announced in a March 25 presidential proclamation that the United States recognized Israeli sovereignty over the strategic plateau that Israel captured from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed. The move marked a dramatic change in policy that helped Netanyahu win reelection.

And all the UN ever did was announce "resolutions" critical of Israel's behaviour, such as this one:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_Security_Council_Resolution_497

as if Israel would care about the UN's opinion:

Quote
Israel did not comply with the resolution and after lengthy discussions on 20 January 1982 the USA vetoed a Chapter VII resolution that called for action by the international community against Israel.[2] Then on 5 February 1982 an emergency special session of the United Nations General Assembly adopted by 86 votes to 21 a resolution calling for a boycott of Israel (the USA and many other Western states voted against)[3]

Quote
JERUSALEM — Israel’s government went on a spending binge in its West Bank settlements following the election of President Donald Trump, according to official data obtained by The Associated Press.

Both supporters and detractors of the settlement movement have previously referred to a “Trump effect,” claiming the president’s friendlier approach to the settlements is leading to additional West Bank construction.

While the new Israeli figures obtained in a freedom of information request do not prove a direct connection, they indicate this process may already be underway, showing a 39% increase in 2017 spending on roads, schools and public buildings across the West Bank.

Hagit Ofran, a researcher with the anti-settlement monitoring group Peace Now, said it appears that Trump’s election has emboldened Israel’s pro-settler government.
...
“The Trump administration is undoubtedly the most friendly American administration of all time,” said Oded Revivi, the chief foreign envoy of the Yesha settlers’ council. “In contrast, the Obama years were extremely hard for Israel. Now we are making up for lost ground.”
...
After winning re-election last month, Netanyahu is in the process of forming a new coalition that also is expected to have close ties with the settlers.

America’s Most Pro-Israel Governor: Ron DeSantis Will Send More Florida Money to Israel

Ron DeSantis, Florida’s new governor, should be really proud of himself. He recently recalled that when he ran for governor “…[he] promised to be the most pro-Israel governor in America and that the first delegation [he] would lead would be to the state of Israel.”
...
DeSantis has been playing the Israel and anti-Semitism cards throughout his political career. Last year, as a Congressman running for governor, he attacked his opponent Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum during their gubernatorial race as not being a “friend of Israel.” He based his charge on reports that Gillum had received support from the Dream Defenders, a group favoring Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel, as well as once having given a speech welcoming members of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to his city.

As a Congressman, DeSantis sponsored in 2013 the Palestinian Accountability Act which called for the withholding of U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority until it recognizes Israel as a Jewish state. In 2017, he co-founded the Congressional Israel Victory Caucus, saying “Israel is our strongest ally in the Middle East, as we share common national interests and possess similar national values. Israel is not the problem in the Middle East; it is the solution to many of the problems that bedevil the region. American policy must ensure that Israel emerges victorious against those who deny or threaten her existence.” Earlier this year, DeSantis drafted a proposal calling on the U.S. to recognize Syria’s Golan Heights as an ‘integral part’ of the State of Israel.

DeSantis boasted about his presence in Jerusalem when the U.S. Embassy was moved to that city one year ago and has promised that on his upcoming trip he will visit Israel’s illegal settlements on the West Bank, which he refers to by the preferred Israeli usage as “Judea and Samaria.” He has threatened critics that “If you boycott Israel, the state of Florida will boycott you” and threatened to “sanction” the holiday rental company Airbnb when it refused to offer properties located in the illegal Israeli settlements on the West Bank. DeSantis was also the driving force behind recently enacted legislation in his state to punish BDS supporters. The legislation is regarded as the most extreme among U.S. states, including explicit equation of criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism. Another bill pending in Florida will enable citizens to sue teachers or government employees who in any way criticize Israel.

DeSantis, a former U.S. Navy lawyer, has demonstrated that he reveres Israel even more than his former comrades in arms. In his congressional district there were a number of survivors of the U.S.S. Liberty, which was attacked in international waters by Israel on June 8, 1967, killing 34 crewmen and injuring 171 more. They report that DeSantis has been completely unsympathetic to their requests that a commission of inquiry finally be convened to determine what actually happened on that day.

In the first move of its kind, the US will sell state-of-the-art aerial re-fuelling planes to Israel, paid for using the military aid Tel Aviv receives from America.

The US Airforce only received the Boeing KC-46 Pegasus aircraft earlier this year, meaning their sale to Israel will mark the first time the US has agreed to sell the technology to a third party.

Four people were killed and 21 others were injured, according to a report by Syria’s state-run news agency, SANA. It was not clear, however, how many of the dead and injured were soldiers or civilians. An infant was allegedly among the dead, according to unconfirmed Syrian media reports.

According to the Syrian defense ministry, the attack was launched from Lebanese air space. Syrian air defenses opened fire to block the attack from at least 13 missiles, according to Syrian military sources who spoke with SANA.

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli work crews on Monday began demolishing dozens of Palestinian homes on the outskirts of an east Jerusalem neighborhood, in one of the largest operations of its kind in years.

The demolitions capped a years-long legal battle over the buildings, constructed near the invisible line straddling the city and the occupied West Bank. Israel says the buildings were erected too close to its West Bank separation barrier. Residents say the buildings are on West Bank land, and the Palestinian Authority gave them construction permits.

In the wake of a recent Supreme Court decision clearing the way for the demolitions, Israeli work crews moved into the neighborhood overnight. Massive construction vehicles smashed through the roofs of several buildings, and large excavators were digging through the rubble.
...
In a joint statement, senior U.N. humanitarian officials in the region expressed “sadness” over the demolitions and warned that many other homes could face “the same fate.”

“Israel’s policy of destroying Palestinian property is not compatible with its obligations under international humanitarian law,” they said.

Hussein al-Sheikh, head of the civil affairs department of the Palestinians Authority, called Monday’s demolition a “crime” and demanded international intervention.

In Gaza, the territory’s Hamas rulers called for intensifying “resistance” to “the Zionist settlement project.”

news.yahoo.com/revealed-how-a-secret-dutch-mole-aided-the-us-israeli-stuxnet-cyber-attack-on-iran-160026018.html

Quote
For years, an enduring mystery has surrounded the Stuxnet virus attack that targeted Iran’s nuclear program: How did the U.S. and Israel get their malware onto computer systems at the highly secured uranium-enrichment plant?
...
The courier behind that intrusion, whose existence and role has not been previously reported, was an inside mole recruited by Dutch intelligence agents at the behest of the CIA and the Israeli intelligence agency, the Mossad, according to sources who spoke with Yahoo News.
...
The revelation of Dutch involvement harkens back to a time when there was still extensive cooperation and strong, multilateral agreement among the U.S. and its allies about how to deal with the Iranian nuclear program — a situation that changed last year after the Trump administration pulled out of the hard-won nuclear accord with Tehran.

The Olympic Games operation was primarily a joint U.S.-Israel mission that involved the NSA, the CIA, the Mossad, the Israeli Ministry of Defense and the Israeli SIGINT National Unit, Israel’s equivalent of the NSA. But the U.S. and Israel had assistance from three other nations, according to sources, hence the covert codename that gave nod to the five-ring symbol of the world’s most famous international sporting event. Two of the three participating players were the Netherlands and Germany. The third is believed to be France, although U.K. intelligence also played a role.

Germany contributed technical specifications and knowledge about the industrial control systems made by the German firm Siemens that were used in the Iranian plant to control the spinning centrifuges, according to sources. France is believed to have provided intelligence of a similar sort.
...
The Dutch intelligence agency, known as AIVD, along with U.S. and British intelligence, infiltrated Khan’s supply network of European consultants and front companies who helped build the nuclear programs in Iran and Libya. That infiltration didn’t just involve old-school tradecraft but also employed offensive hacking operations being developed as part of the burgeoning field of digital espionage.
...
The request to the Dutch for help with this came toward the end of 2004, when a Mossad liaison working out of the Israeli Embassy in the Hague and a CIA official based at the U.S. Embassy met with a representative from AIVD. There was no talk yet about inserting a digital weapon into the control systems at Natanz; the aim at that time was still just intelligence.

But the timing wasn’t random. In 2003, British and U.S. intelligence had landed a huge coup when they intercepted a ship containing thousands of centrifuge components headed to Libya — components for the same model of centrifuges used at Natanz. The shipment provided clear evidence of Libya’s illicit nuclear program. Libya was persuaded to give up the program in exchange for the lifting of sanctions, and also agreed to relinquish any components already received.
...
The Dutch intelligence agency already had an insider in Iran, and after the request from the CIA and Mossad came in, the mole decided to set up two parallel tracks — each involving a local front company — with the hope that one would succeed getting into Natanz.
...
The first company the mole established had failed to get into Natanz — there was a problem with the way the company was set up, according to two of the sources, and “the Iranians were already suspicious,” one explained.

The second company, however, got assistance from Israel. This time, the Dutch mole, who was an engineer by training, managed to get inside Natanz by posing as a mechanic.

www.rt.com/news/468831-us-israel-negotiate-mutual-defense/

Quote
The US and Israel are discussing a mutual defense treaty that would further cement the already “tremendous” alliance between the two countries, President Donald Trump has revealed.

"I had a call today with Prime Minister Netanyahu to discuss the possibility of moving forward with a Mutual Defense Treaty, between the United States and Israel, that would further anchor the tremendous alliance between our two countries," Trump tweeted.
...
Relations between Washington and Tel Aviv have always been quite cozy – and got even closer under Trump – yet the two countries do not have a full-fledged military alliance.

Israel was one of the first major non-Nato ally (MNNA), a designation that goes with a whole set of benefits, such as generous loans, a priority in delivery of various military surplus, possession of war reserve stocks of Pentagon-owned hardware outside US military bases (Israel is said to have at least six sites) and others.

Yest in 2014 the US enshrined Israel into a new class of ally – a major strategic partner. The new designation, which is a step above MNNA, was basically established specifically for Israel. It greatly expanded the US wartime stockpiles in Israel from $200 million in value to a whopping $1.8 billion.

Under the Trump administration, the trend has continued, and in 2017, the US established its first permanent military base – an air defense facility – in Israel.

This will not end well.

A mysterious Israeli-based group uses 21 Facebook pages to churn out more than a thousand coordinated fake news posts per week to more than a million followers around the world. It milks the traffic for revenue from digital advertising.

Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, who earlier this year became the first Muslim women to serve in the US Congress, have been singled out for vicious attacks by the coordinated effort.

Somali-born Omar is the most frequent target. She has been mentioned in more than 1,400 posts since the network began two years ago. Tlaib has been mentioned nearly 1,200 times. Both totals are far higher than any other member of Congress.

The Guardian uncovered contacts between a group of mysterious Israel-based accounts and 21 far-right Facebook pages across the US, Australia, the UK, Canada, Austria, Israel and Nigeria.

The posts exacerbate Islamophobia by amplifying far-right parties and vilifying Muslim and leftwing politicians. Their content is a blend of distorted news and pure fabrication.

An analysis by Queensland University of Technology’s digital media research centre indicated a single entity is coordinating the publication of content across the Facebook pages.

Using web archiving services and domain registry information, the Guardian has been able to confirm a key figure in the network is Ariel Elkaras, a thirtysomething jewelry salesman and online operator living on the outskirts of the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.

Israel's Plan To Bypass The World's Most Critical Oil Chokepoint

Israel pitched to India this weekend its idea of a new transportation corridor in the Middle East bypassing the most critical oil chokepoint in the world which is very close to Iran, the Strait of Hormuz.

During the Mediterranean Dialogues conference in Rome on Saturday, Israel’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Minister of Intelligence, Israel Katz, met with India’s Minister of External Affairs, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, to discuss bilateral trade and presented Israel’s “Tracks for Regional Peace” initiative.

According to the plan by Israel’s Foreign Affairs Ministry, the ‘Tracks for regional peace - regional land bridge and hub initiative’ would connect the Mediterranean and the Persian Gulf, using Israel as a land bridge and Jordan as a regional transportation hub. The regional rail network will carry cargo from the Mediterranean onto Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf and vice versa. The initiative is expected to be profitable in ten years.

The railroad will also “bypass the security threats emanating from Iran and the Straits of Hormuz and the Bab al-Mandeb,” according to the Israeli plan.

Quote
JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel's military said it began construction of an underground defense system Sunday along its northern frontier with Lebanon to protect against cross-border tunnels.

The infrastructure project will identify underground acoustic and seismic activity indicating tunnel digging, accompanied other defensive measures, said Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman.
...
“What we are doing today is part of a larger plan,” he said. “We understand that our activity may be seen and will be heard on the other side and we want to explain what we are we doing and why we are doing it. It is a matter of precaution.”
...
Israel also has acknowledged carrying out scores of airstrikes in neighboring Syria, many of them believed to have been aimed at Iranian weapons shipments bound for its Hezbollah proxy.

Anyone who still thinks conventional warfare can defeat Israel is delusional.

Quote
Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel has started drawing up maps of the occupied West Bank areas that it wants to annex under US President Donald Trump’s self-proclaimed “deal of the century” for the Middle East.

“We are already at the height of the process of mapping the area that, according to the Trump plan, will become part of... Israel. It won’t take too long,” he said at an election campaign rally in the Ma'ale Adumim settlement near Jerusalem al-Quds on Saturday.

Netanyahu also stressed that the area Israel plans to annex would include all West Bank settlements and the Jordan Valley.
...
Netanyahu stressed that the Trump administration would back his annexation plans.

“Don’t be mistaken, the Americans will go along with this, President Trump will go along with this,” he said.
...
Netanyahu also hailed a series of pro-Israel measures taken by the Trump administration, including the recognition of Jerusalem al-Quds as the Israeli “capital," the relocation of the American embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied city, the recognition of Israeli “sovereignty” over Syria’s Golan Heights and the "legalization" of Israeli settlements.

Quote
A group of European Union member countries led by Luxembourg is planning to put forward an initiative at a meeting on Monday of European Union foreign ministers to accord joint EU recognition of a Palestinian state. The move is in response to U.S. President Donald Trump’s plan for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn has already discussed the initiative with the foreign ministers of Ireland, France, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Finland, Sweden, Malta and Slovenia.
...
In the wake of the initiative, Israel has conveyed messages to the countries sponsoring it that “this is not the time for unilateral recognition of a Palestinian state,” because it would prevent “a possibility of direct negotiations between the sides for a permanent agreement.” Israel is now trying to convince the Europeans to give the American peace initiative a chance.

Haaretz has reported that on Monday the EU foreign ministers would be discussing action protesting the Trump plan. Israeli ambassadors in Europe have been asked to apply pressure on the foreign ministries in the countries to which they are posted to refrain from rejecting the plan entirely and from harsh criticism of it. In the past, Eastern European members of the EU, led by Hungary, have headed off a number of anti-Israel initiatives. Israel hopes that the same thing ultimately happens this time as well.

Israel raids Beit Ummar, sprays houses with sewage

Israeli forces have again raided the village of Beit Ummar in the West Bank yesterday, with video footage seemingly showing Israeli forces using a water pump to spray sewage over the houses of Palestinians.

This comes after several Palestinians suffered from severe tear gas inhalation last Sunday after Israeli troops stormed the outskirts of the southern occupied West Bank village of Beit Ummar.

The footage shows what appears to be a modified military vehicle being used to spray sewage over houses belonging to Palestinians. Israeli soldiers can be seen standing on the rooftops of Palestinian homes, indicating that they stormed and temporarily took possession of these houses.

A recent poll shows that 74% of the public approve of Netanyahu’s performance. Even more impressive, 58% of those who define themselves as left-wingers give him high marks.

Another change is the much-delayed birth of the Trump plan, which provides for the Israeli annexation of the Jordan Valley and Jewish towns and villages in the West Bank. It marks an epochal shift in American foreign policy and Israeli politics.
...
In the last few weeks, the Israeli air force has stepped up attacks on Iranian forces and interests in Syria and Lebanon (without, it has been noted by Israeli intelligence, any Russian protest). Once, American secretaries of state traveled to Israel to counsel moderation in such matters. Pompeo comes not as a mediator but a wartime ally.
...
In Pompeo’s visit last October, he made it clear that the U.S. considers China an enemy every bit as “malign” as Iran, and called upon Israel to rethink its infrastructure and high-tech cooperation with Beijing. Netanyahu listened politely and established a committee to look into the matter. As far as anyone knows, it is still looking.

Moses was clearly the first Zionist. In Deuteronomy 1:8 Yahweh gives the land of Israel to Moses:

A second, more obscure, consequence of this fallacy strikes the pro-Palestinian camp. If it is accepted, as it is by Zionists, that Israel indeed represents Judaism and all Jews - an expression of "Jewish supremacy" - then those who are pro-Palestinian must also reject Jews and Judaism.

The U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR) tweeted on May 28 that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) train police officers in the United States to be racist.

The tweet read, “The Israeli military trains US police in racist and repressive policing tactics, which systematically targets Black and Brown bodies. The recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery are examples of racialized, systematized violence.”

Yet another brutal killing of a black American by law enforcement officers has hit the headlines, especially on social media. George Floyd, 46, was unarmed when a Minneapolis police officer killed him on Monday by handcuffing him and then pinning him to the ground with his knee on his victim’s neck.

The white police officer ignored Floyd’s pleas that he could not breathe, which can be heard clearly on a video of the incident which has gone viral. In the aftermath of the killing, protests have raged across the city.

Such shocking images of police brutality have become one of the defining features of American society. Getting killed by the police is a leading cause of death for young black men in America, a recent report found.

Israeli airstrikes have killed at least 12 pro-Iran fighters in Syria on February 6. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reports seven foreign fighters were killed in the area of Kiswa, south of Damascus, along with five Syrian members of a pro-Iranian group in southwestern Daraa Province. Syrian government forces said air defenses responded to Israeli strikes in these areas as well as the province of Queitra. However, they only claimed eight injuries – with no mention of nationality or rank. Since the beginning of the Syrian Conflict in 2011, Israel has carried out strikes against Syrian government forces and their allies in the country.

Large blast in Beirut

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/08/large-explosion-rocks-lebanon-capital-beirut-200804153400078.html

There was a large blast, apparently caused by ammonium nitrate fertilizer stored at in port of Beirut (which BBC simply called "highly explosive materials"). No casualty figures out out yet, but there are definitely scores of dead and wounded.

Given the recent events between Lebanon and Israel, including a fake Israeli engagement with Hezbollah:

https://resistancenews.org/2020/07/29/what-happened-and-didnt-happen-at-the-israel-lebanon-border/

The timing of the bombing is oddly suspicious, especially given the previous "accidents" at Iranian nuclear facilities and the present political turmoil in Lebanon.

Israel bombs Gaza over terror; Turkey to confront Egypt-Greece accord
Quote
1) Palestinian Islamists in the Gaza Strip unleashed several clusters of balloons attached to both incendiary and explosive devices causing blazes in southern Israel – consequently prompting a retaliatory bombardment against a Hamas subterranean installation.
2) A political crisis in Jerusalem over the state budget is seemingly threatening the Israeli unity government’s stability.
3)Egypt and Greece sign a maritime exclusive economic zone in the Eastern Mediterranean – drawing Turkish vows to contest the accord by all means at its disposal.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Pbmw8SNY6M

1. Israel is clearly a pathetic country, doesn't matter how much military hardware they are able to mimic, steal, and invent. 2. Egypt, Greece, and Israel, obviously share similar interests, I wonder if Egypt will willing give-up a quarter of it's land for the Greater Israel Project? 3. And, why do Egyptians not care that Israel tried to sink the USS Liberty intentionally so that it could be blamed on Egypt which would in turn create a nuclear response on Egypt by the US?

"Now that the ice has been broken, I expect more Arab and Muslim countries will follow the United Arab Emirates," he said.

The Palestinian groups slammed the Israel-UAE agreement, saying it does nothing to serve the Palestinian cause and ignores the rights of the Palestinian people.

Hamas condemned the deal, which it said was a "treacherous stab in the back".

"This agreement does absolutely not serve the Palestinian cause, it rather serves the Zionist narrative. This agreement encourages the occupation [Israel] to continue its denial of the rights of our Palestinian people, and even to continue its crimes against our people," Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem said in a statement.

The Fatah movement said the UAE is "flouting its national, religious and humanitarian duties" toward the Palestinian cause.

Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization's (PLO) executive committee, said the UAE has "come out in the open on its secret dealings" with Israel.

"Israel got rewarded for not declaring openly what it’s been doing to Palestine illegally and persistently since the beginning of the occupation," she posted on Twitter.
