Permalink Israel Cut Off Gaza’s Communications Because Murderers Don’t Like Witnesses

Caitlin Johnstone | Israel is perhaps more acutely aware than any other government on earth of how disadvantageous it is to have your crimes recorded in the light of day and shared with the world. | Israeli ground forces have ramped up activities in Gaza in what anonymous US officials are reportedly telling the press is a “rolling start” to the long-anticipated ground invasion.  Israel has also concurrently crippled Gaza’s largest telecommunications service, which had been the enclave’s last remaining contact with the outside world after Israel knocked out all the others. Humanitarian organizations and mainstream press outlets now say they have lost communication with their contacts in Gaza in a level of information blackout we’re unaccustomed to seeing in modern times.  “This information blackout risks providing cover for mass atrocities and contributing to impunity for human rights violations,” Human Rights Watch correctly notes.  And I’m going to go ahead and say that’s probably not just a convenient coincidence for Israel. A genocidal massacre in total darkness works very much to the advantage of those doing the massacring.

Israel has lost the argument. Permanently. There’s no coming back from this. (Caitlin Johnstone)

Caitlin Johnstone | I’m sorry if this makes me an evil terrorist-loving baby-raping sieg-heiling Nazi, but in my humble opinion genocidal massacres are bad. | Israel and its allies get away with a lot by marketing this as a “war”. It’s not a war. Israel launches high-tech military explosives at civilian buildings in a huge concentration camp while Hamas fires back with glorified fireworks which do light property damage. That’s not a war, it’s a massacre.

Marina Sovina (Марина Совина) (lenta.ru) | Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned the West about a possible war on religious grounds. He said this during a rally in Istanbul organized in support of Palestine. During his speech, the Turkish leader wore a scarf in the colors of the Palestinian flag. | Do you want to ignite a new war between the cross and the crescent? If you are making such an effort to do so, then know this - this nation is not dead, it is standing firmly on its feet. We are determined. Earlier, Erdogan said that Western countries bear part of the responsibility for the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip. He linked this to the fact that they do not call for a ceasefire.

Turkey wants to declare Israel a war criminal – Earlier Erdogan mentioned Ankara's intention to declare Israel a war criminal. According to him, the relevant work is already underway. "Israel, how did you end up here? How did you get here? You are an occupier. Every country has the right to defend itself, but where is justice? There is a massacre in Gaza," the Turkish president said. Erdogan also called on Israel to immediately get out of the "state of madness." He noted that the constant bombardment of Gaza is again targeting women, children and innocent locals. This deepens the humanitarian crisis and the Jewish state must stop the attacks, he assured.  The Saudi Foreign Ministry also pointed out that any ground operations in the Gaza Strip are unacceptable as they threaten the lives of civilians. "The Kingdom warns of the dangers of continuing these blatant and unjustified violations of international law against the brotherly Palestinian people, as well as the serious consequences they will have on stability in the world and the region," the foreign ministry said in a statement.

Israel has launched the second phase of the war against Hamas – In the evening of October 28, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced the beginning of the second stage of the war. The politician called its goal the destruction of the Palestinian movement Hamas and the release of hostages.  Netanyahu also said that allies in Western and Arab countries understand the goals of the conflict with Palestine. The politician emphasized that they support the Israeli side and want it to win the war against the Palestinian Hamas movement. "They understand that if we do not win this war, they are next in line," he noted.  Following Erdogan's statements, Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen recalled diplomats from Turkey. "Against the backdrop of Turkey's harsh statements, I ordered Israel's diplomatic representatives to return home in order to reassess Israeli-Turkish relations," he explained.

Permalink DO YOU GET IT YET?

theburningplatform.com | It’s the same old story every time. Our overlords create and fund those they want us to believe are enemies that must be stopped. The U.S. funded and supported Sadaam Hussein when he was fighting our enemy Iran, who was our enemy because we overthrew their president in the 1950’s and installed the Shah as dictator. When he stopped playing ball with our Deep State, they “saved” Kuwait over a border dispute and falsely claimed he was involved in 9/11 and had WMDs, so they could kill him and steal Iraq’s oil. We created and funded Bin Laden when he was fighting our eternal enemy Russia in Afghanistan. Then we blamed him for 9/11 and waged war for over a decade against him and the Taliban. Libya was the most prosperous country in Africa, but Ghaddafi didn’t toe the line with our Deep State, so he became our new enemy and was swiftly dispatched, leaving Libya a lawless hellhole. The CIA/Deep State overthrew a democratically elected leader of Ukraine because he was friendly with our eternal enemy Russia, creating the conflict today which is bankrupting our country and killing hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians. Now we know Israel created and funded Hamas, the “horrible” terrorist organization they allowed to attack their country with no resistance, even though they knew it was about to happen. Our globalist overlords always need enemies to create, so they can sustain the military industrial complex and keep the people distracted and angry at other enemies, rather than their true enemies – their corrupt psychopathic leaders. This is all a show, and you are an unwilling audience member, until you become their cannon fodder. Are you not entertained?
