For the moment Israel has held fire currently it stands at 40 rockets fired , I would not be surprised if we don’t go after the heads of Hamas all of whom were put on notice some time back
A full flare up sees lots of dead Gazans immense destruction but no real solution.
We have attacked an Iranian oil ship which is ablaze as this flare up is directed and controlled by Iran , the Iranians will have to decide their next move
All of this also suits Israel and various Arab states as it makes the US negotiations with Iran over their nuclear program ever more difficult
Perhaps the multitude of attacks on the Jews by Arabs may have something to do with it what do you think ?
If there are attacks against Jews then the Jews will attack the Arabs these attacks are currently being heighthened by the ongoing escalation of tension between Israel and Gaza and add into this fetid brew the on / off election of a new leadership in the West Bank.
The original creator of HRW was himself Jewish he would go on to resign his position due to the singular focused attention Israel was receiving and the skewed views within the HRW .
Having lived here for 43 years I have not witnessed any Apartheid system that is not to say that all Jews love all Arabs no more than all Arabs love all Jews
These NGO reports make headlines and make superb soundbites they get contested then more or less fade from view as the foundations they are created on usually have shakey ground
An annual Religious event made even more hectic by the dropping of COVID restrictions ensured that thousands of Ultra Orthodox Jews made their way to a given area , it appears that one more than likely stumbled , the one behind him then fell over him and the crowd unknowingly surged ever forward , it is similar to another disaster in Mecca where thousands are being herded into a confined space and they move ever forward not knowing if people in the front are on the ground or not .
In our case there is apparently a Police Report stating that such a disaster was waiting to happen
Not one of them had a mask.
These are a large group of people who only listen to their various leaders / rabbi's they do not , will not conform to the standards You and I accept or understand , they have NO internet, read only proscribed news papers , their phones are strictly only for calls no internet, they have no radios or tv's and live their lives in prayer, learning and ghettoes .
They are threatened by the secular society and its norms and they retreat from anything that they feel threatens their way of life , the Police are referred to as Nazis and you cannot enter their areas unless you are modestly dressed .
They are by choice a people apart
