The Israeli legislature plans to hold a vote on a bill that would name the UN Aid Agency for Palestinians (UNRWA) as a terrorist organization. Since October 7, Israel has killed hundreds of UNRWA staff in Gaza and alleged the group has ties to Hamas. 

The Knesset plans to hold the preliminary vote on the law this Wednesday. MK Yulia Malinovksy explained the bill, “The purpose of this bill is to declare UNRWA as a terrorist organization for all intents and purposes as well as order the termination of the relations [and the cooperation] of the State of Israel with the agency, either directly or indirectly.”

If the law passes the initial vote, it will still have to pass the first, second, and third readings. 

Since October 7, Tel Aviv has targeted UNRWA on the ground in Gaza and in the international press. Amid the Israeli onslaught, the aid agency has reported that nearly 200 of its staff have been killed in Gaza. 

Israeli officials have also smeared UNRWA to give cover for its slaughter of civilians in Gaza. In January, the International Court of Justice issued a preliminary ruling that it was plausible that Tel Aviv’s mass slaughter in Gaza was a genocide. That same week, Tel Aviv claimed that UNRWA aided Hamas’s attack on Southern Israel.

On April 16th, Foreign Affairs published an investigation, documenting in forensic detail how in May 2022 Kiev was a signature away from a peace deal with Russia “that would have ended the war and provided Ukraine with multilateral security guarantees,” which was scuppered by Western powers. The outlet attributes the failure of negotiations to “a number of reasons” - although it’s unambiguously clear the biggest was British Prime Minister Boris Johnson offering President Volodymyr Zelenskyy the blankest of blank cheques to keep fighting.

For two years, claims and counterclaims have abounded about these peace talks, initiated almost immediately after the conflict began, and why they collapsed. Independent journalists and researchers, the Kremlin, and some foreign officials involved, assert that a favorable settlement was within reach, only to be scuttled at the 11th hour by Western actors. By contrast, Kiev, its supporters, and proxy sponsors have strenuously denied that negotiations were ever taken seriously by either party, while claiming Moscow’s terms were completely unacceptable.

Foreign Affairs has now validated what anti-imperialists have consistently contended. Amicable peace could’ve been achieved in Ukraine at the earliest stages of the proxy conflict, on terms favourable to both parties. Western powers responsible for sabotaging negotiations in service of weakening Russia knew that all along. Yet, they kept this inconvenient reality consciously concealed until now, when the war is unambiguously an unwinnable lost cause for all concerned, bar Moscow.

The Palestinian Civil Defence in Gaza says the death toll from an overnight Israeli attack on the tents of displaced Palestinians in Rafah has risen to 45 as the attack sparks condemnation across the Arab and Western world.

In scenes grimly familiar from a war in its eighth month, Palestinian families on Monday rushed to hospitals to prepare their dead for burial after the Sunday night attack set tents and rickety shelters ablaze. Women wept as men held prayers beside bodies in shrouds.

“The whole world is witnessing Rafah getting burned up by Israel and no one is doing anything to stop it,” Bassam, a Rafah resident, said via a chat app, of the attack in an area of western Rafah that had been designated a safe zone.

The attack took place in the Tal As-Sultan neighbourhood, where thousands were sheltering after Israeli forces began a ground offensive in the east of Rafah more than two weeks ago.

Many of the dead were women and children, the health officials said, adding that the death toll was likely to rise as some injured people with severe burns were in critical condition.

Amnesty International on Monday urged the International Criminal Court to investigate as war crimes three recent Israeli strikes that killed 44 Palestinian civilians, including 32 children.

Last week the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Karim Khan, applied for arrest warrants against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and top Hamas leaders on suspicion of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Amnesty said three Israeli strikes - one on the al-Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza on 16 April, and two on Rafah in southern Gaza on 19 and 20 April - are "further evidence of a broader pattern of war crimes" committed by the Israeli military in Gaza.

"The cases documented here illustrate a clear pattern of attacks over the past seven months in which the Israeli military has flouted international law, killing Palestinian civilians with total impunity and displaying a callous disregard for human lives," said Erika Guevara-Rosas, senior director at Amnesty.

Gaza hospitals are reduced to practising "medieval medicine", a British surgeon recently returned from the bombarded Palestinian territory said on Monday.

"It's absolutely true to describe it as medieval medicine. It is what you would hear about or read about what would be happening in Europe maybe 300, 400 years ago," Dr Khaled Dawas, head of gastrointestinal surgery at University College London Hospitals, told AFP in an interview.

Dawas described dire conditions in Gaza, with medical staff operating virtually without supplies, power supplies intermittent and patients lying on the floor.

He returned at the end of April from his two-week stint to help overstretched Palestinian hospital surgeons -- his second wartime stay there, following one in January.

The collective shrug with which the Western media and political class noted the attempted assassination of Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico has been telling.

Can you imagine the outrage and emotion that would have been expressed by Western powers if not Fico but a pro-Ukraine, anti-Russian leader within the EU had been attacked? The new orders for weapons that would have been presented to the arms manufacturers, the troops that would have been deployed, the sabers that would have been rattled?

If your family was on the verge of starving to death, to what extremes would you be willing to go in order to get food?  Some of the things that I am going to share with you in this article may make you cringe.  But you need to understand what people are willing to do when they get extremely desperate and extremely hungry, because the global food crisis that has already begun is going to greatly intensify in the years ahead.  Hundreds of millions of people go to bed hungry every single night, and children are literally dropping dead from starvation on the other side of the globe right now.  Unfortunately, most people in the western world don’t even realize that this is going on because the corporate media rarely reports on it.  War, pestilence, natural disasters, bizarre weather patterns and historic crop failures are creating a “perfect storm” for global food production.  It is being projected that later this year things will get really bad in some of the poorest areas of the planet, and the long-term outlook is even worse.

Late in the evening earlier this month I stood at the heart of the campus of one of America’s great universities, marveling at the generosity of the American business community in building and rebuilding so extensively.

Then I noticed that all the young people I saw around were Chinese. After further inspection some Indians and a few blacks could be identified, but I only saw two white men.

Later that week I flew steerage from the West Coast. More than half my companions were rather tired-looking and small Chinese, dressed for rough travel and carrying huge amounts of baggage. No doubt they crossed the border a few days earlier.

I was witnessing the Great Replacement in action.

President Biden recently raised taxes on American consumers and businesses and may have hastened the end of the dollar’s world reserve currency status. President Biden did this by increasing tariffs on Chinese imports.

Specifically, President Biden raised tariffs on products including Chinese-produced steel and aluminum and many components imported from China for use in manufacturing electric vehicle batteries. Tariffs on Chinese-made semiconductors are rising from 25 to 50 percent while tariffs on Chinese-made electronic vehicles are rising from 25 percent to an astounding 100 percent.

Of course, the costs of these tariffs will be borne by Americans wishing to purchase electric cars and American electric car manufacturers that use material imported from China. These new tariffs thus undercut Biden’s goal of getting more Americans to drive electric cars.

Naomi describes the citizens’ loss of their park to growing ranks of homeless persons attracted to the idyllic town by its provisions for and welcome to homeless, the supply of which overwhelmed the stupid town.

“Now, we had gently let go of the park. I did not feel safe at dusk now walking the pathway of roses that now included walking a gauntlet of intoxicated or addicted homeless people. It felt weird to be in the park now, even in daytime, as one felt as if one was in the backyard, uninvited, of whoever was living inside that massive, territorial tent. I saw that students and moms with babies had abandoned the half of the park where the homeless people and the huge tent was, and were avoiding the area where the free clothing giveaway was located, as that too had people drinking and harassing passers-by for money all day; so the citizens of the town were now exercising and playing volleyball crowded together into one far corner of the park.”

Being the epitome of a liberal, Naomi blames it on “the China/Globalist entities interested in dividing our country.” But of course it is not “China/Globalist entities.” It is dumbshit Democrats. Knowing that Naomi is intelligent, I am having a bit of trouble with this. Perhaps she is making fun of Americans who blame foreigners for all of their problems. Or perhaps she is spreading the blame around in hopes of surviving her exercise of free speech.

I doubt that Naomi really believes that the Chinese, not the blue Democrats, are responsible for a Unitarian ministry called “Parents as Sexuality Educators.” The church curriculum involves parents teaching “Ethical Non-Monogamy.”

Putin is one of the most demonized people in history. He has been labeled “the New Hitler,” and he is accused of kidnapping children. Prosecutors with the International Criminal Court accused the Russian president, under cover of war, of having stolen “hundreds” of Ukrainian children. Government officials in Ukraine went further and spoke of more than 16,000 stolen children. Still others spoke of hundreds of thousands, and suggested this could meet criteria as a form of “genocide.” https://www.icc-cpi.int/news/statement-prosecutor-karim-khan-kc-issuance-arrest-warrants-against-president-vladimir-putin

Putin’s “crime” was widely reported in the Western media as factual: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-64985009

Putin has been so demonized by the West that the West has made it impossible to negotiate with him. Yet Putin continues to speak of negotiating a conclusion to the Ukrainian conflict. He can. All he has to do is to surrender and return Crimea and all conquered territory in Donbas. Biden and Blinken have made clear that these are the only terms Washington will accept for ending the conflict.

Biden administration officials trekked to Seoul in late May to discuss a path toward a new “Special Measures Agreement” (SMA) that will define the parameters of military cooperation between the U.S. and South Korea for years to come.

The talks, said the U.S. embassy, “underline the enduring vitality of the U.S.-ROK alliance, which remains the linchpin of peace, security, and prosperity for Northeast Asia, the broader Indo-Pacific, and beyond.” The South Koreans have a more practical goal of holding down costs, taking “the position that our defense burden sharing will come at a reasonable level to ensure conditions for a stable stationing of” U.S. troops.

In complete darkness, a fire is burning in an entire block of tents in the Israeli-designated “safe zone” for displaced Palestinians, northwest of the city of Rafah. As people run in terror from the conflagration, the fire itself forms the only source of light, revealing the truth of what is happening in the displacement camp.

A man is carrying the body of a child. The body is missing a head. We can see dismembered hands extending from the mangled torso. The legs are also severed. The man holds the body aloft as if he wants to show everyone what happened here.

The video of the harrowing scene has since gone viral.

Judge Aileen Cannon last Tuesday unsealed numerous motions related to Jack Smith’s classified documents case against Trump.

One filing revealed Biden’s FBI authorized the use of deadly force during their raid on Mar-a-Lago authorized by US Attorney General Merrick Garland in August 2022.

Armed FBI agents were prepared to confront Trump!!

“Should FPOTUS [Trump] arrive at MAL [Mar-a-Lago], FBI MM EM and OSCs will be prepared to engage with FPOTUS and USSS Security Team,” the document read. “Should USSS provide resistance or interfere with FBI timeline or accesses, FBI MM EM will engage with [redacted] and [redacted] will engage with USSS POC’s per existing liaison relationships.”

“Law enforcement officers of the Department of Justice may use deadly force only when necessary, that is, when the officer has a reasonable belief that the subject of such force poses an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury to the officer or to another person,” the document read.

In an almost satirical twist to the ongoing climate change narrative, mainstream media and some ‘experts’ are now pointing fingers at climate change as the culprit behind the recent ‘extreme turbulence’ that forced a Singapore Airlines flight to make an emergency landing.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that at least one person has died, and dozens more have been hospitalized after a Singapore Airlines flight was hit by “severe turbulence” last week.

The flight from London to Singapore was forced to divert to Bangkok after rapidly descending 7,000 feet in just six minutes, sending some passengers flying into the ceiling.

A spokesperson for the Chilean airline LATAM told news outlets that the issue was caused by a “technical problem” and would be thoroughly investigated.

However, so-called experts and media wasted no time in attributing the “extreme turbulence” to climate change that forced a Singapore Airlines flight to make an emergency landing.

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from Biden’s Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg. Perhaps he’s been on more vacations? Buttigieg helped drag down the administration by being MIA on several critical occasions, such as a train derailment in East Palestine, several airline shutdowns, and the possible rail workers’ strike.

Now, he might be coming out and speaking to the press in an attempt to prop up Biden’s campaign. He was on CBS to discuss Biden’s “green” plan.

Biden has shut down oil production to force Americans to buy expensive, less reliable electric cars. But that plan has failed; even the CBS host admitted that. When Buttigieg tried to spin it, she shut him down with two words.

From Daily Caller:
CBS host Margaret Brennan pressed Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg on former President Donald Trump’s stance on the amount of electric vehicles (EVs) purchased, noting Sunday that Trump’s take wasn’t “wrong.” …

“… Donald Trump repeatedly talks about President Biden’s decision to force the industry towards making 56% of car batteries electric by 2032, 13% hybrid,” Brennan stated before playing a clip of the former president. “He’s not wrong on the purchasing.”

“Oh, he’s wrong,” Buttigieg responded.

“He’s not. Of the 4 million vehicles purchased, 269,000 electric vehicles were sold in the U.S. market. It’s up like 2%,” Brennan stated.

The husband of an outspoken anti-World Economic Forum (WEF) lawmaker has been found murdered in his car after being strangled to death with a zip tie.

Italian MEP Francesca Donato revealed this week that her husband, Angelo Onorato, was found dead in his vehicle.

Onorato’s body was found with something tightly wrapped around his neck, signaling a murder.

Donato rose to prominence for her vocal activism against the WEF’s globalist agenda.

She has become a thorn in the side of Klaus Schwab and his allies by standing firmly against the mass Covid mRNA vaccine campaign, the WEF’s “Net Zero” climate agenda, and the Western funding if Ukraine’s war with Russia.

The Member of the European Parliament has frequently warned that Schwab and the globalists are pushing the world into World War Three so they can enslave what remains of humanity.

Just one day after Israel decapitated a small child and killed dozens of displaced Palestinians in an airstrike on a tent city in Gaza, the New York Times ran a column stating that accusing Israel of genocide is a "canard" invoking an "ancient antisemitic blood libel." 

James Kirchick wrote in a column on Monday for the New York Times:
 

One of the greatest mass delusions of the 21st century is the belief that Israel is committing a genocide against Palestinians. This grotesque moral inversion -- in which a genocidal terrorist organization that instigated a war with Israel by committing the largest massacre of Jews since the Holocaust is absolved of responsibility while the victim of Hamas's attack is charged with perpetrating the worst crime known to man -- began taking shape before Israel even launched its ground invasion of Gaza.

Strike on displaced Palestinians kills 45 and leaves many grappling with the devastating aftermath

survivors moun aftermath of Rafa attack

A mourner reacts over the body of a Palestinian killed in an Israeli strike on an area designated for displaced people, during a funeral in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, 27 May 2024 (Reuters/Mohammed Salem)

By Ahmed Aziz in Rafah, occupied Palestine and Huthifa Fayyad

After sunrise, survivors of the Israeli bombing of a Rafah displacement camp returned to assess the damage. 

Children peeked through the window of a hollowed-out car, men searched the burnt debris, and journalists took photos of the blackened food cans.

Around 12 hours earlier, Palestinian families were inside these tents, which were set ablaze after the Israeli military bombed the encampment, located in northwestern Rafah. 

Many had just finished night prayers, some were asleep and others were simply gathered with their families. 

“We were sitting down in peace when we suddenly heard the explosion,” said Layan al-Fayoum, a survivor of the attack. 

Claire's Observations:  The IDF had its orders;  it allegedly killed two Hamas members, but nearly all the innocents in the tent as well, including women and children.  There was no "surprise" here;  they simply did as they were told by their superiors,  period, end of discussion.  

The massacre won't be investigated by higher ups, because their orders were to do precisely this.  The homeless Palestinians, were simply "collateral damage?" because they "got in the way" of assassinating two Hamas members.

Acting Justice Merchan will reportedly instruct jurors that they can individually pick any one of three 'predicate' crimes during their deliberations. Merchan made this shocking revelation during the charging hearing last week. Shockingly, they need not ALL agree on which crime they believe Trump committed to find him guilty. This unprecedented move undermines the very foundation of our justice system, highlighting how New York Democrats are using their control of the judiciary to pursue political vendettas. What makes it worse is that it is black letter law that the jury must agree on ‘predicate’ crimes as affirmed in Richardson v. United States.

Billionaire Bill Gates is funding dangerous gain-of-function research that seeks to create far deadlier and more contagious strains of bird flu capable of rapidly spreading through humans and livestock.

Additionally, the Microsoft co-founder’s organization, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is working with Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration for the research.

The collaboration with U.S. federal government agencies means that American taxpayers are also funding the experiments.

According to the Biden admin, however, the dangerous research is being conducted in order to develop mRNA vaccines for avian influenza in preparation for a possible looming pandemic.

Those behind the research insist that manipulating the bird flu virus in a biolab to make it more lethal and transmissible among mammals with help with the vaccine development.
