The US is generally thought to be far more religious than Europe. However, a new paper that tracks people's locations with smartphone data suggests US religious attendance may have been substantially overestimated.

Alas, once again a government has introduced a law to curb free speech and outlaw 'hate'. But if speech is so unpopular that some deem it hateful, that speech is the speech most worth protecting, says Lawrence Krauss.

The depths of depravity of Israel show no signs of finding new lows. In the past few months they have massacred thousands of civilians, collapsed buildings, hospitals, shot at people rushing to get food aid, shot aid works, dropped bombs on large gatherings of civiliams.

Today though at Middle East Eye they report on this story:
Israeli drones lure Palestinians with crying children recordings then shoot them

The argument is based on both ethical and factual points. I will start by commenting on the latter, as unfortunately it seems like these comrades have fallen into an alternative reality, shaped by Russia Today and other Russian-sponsored social media disinformation. read full story / add a comment

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign, supported by scores of other Irish civil society groups, has called another National Demonstration for Palestine on Saturday 17th February, starting at the Garden of Remembrance at 1pm and going to the Department of Foreign Affairs on St. Stephen’s Green to bring our demands to the Irish government’s doorstep.


END GAZA GENOCIDE!
END ISRAELI APARTHEID!
SANCTIONS NOW!
FREEDOM AND JUSTICE FOR PALESTINE!

This march – endorsed by scores of Irish civil society organisations – has been called as part of the Global Day of Action for Gaza. Last month we made history with one of the largest demonstrations in Irish history, bringing 100,000 people onto the streets for Palestine. Let’s make this one EVEN BIGGER!

Tucker Carlson who has a following of millions and is even more popular since he was dropped from Fix News is of the few American journalist to challenge the narrative on many issues.

Given the NATO-Ukraine vs Russia is not going according to the plan of the USA to trigger regime change in Russia despite over $100 billion being wasted on it and at least 500,000 Ukrainians dead on behalf of US strategic interests and courtesy of the Nord Stream gas pipeline destruction carried out by the US that is leading de-industrialization of Germany and hence Europe, and of course the whole pretext of the war, then it is probably important that the public who have largely only heard the Western propaganda, should get a chance to hear what the other side has to say read full story / add a comment

Larry Johnson on his blog reports on the hideous actions of the Israeli state and how they are undeniably behaving like real Nazis.

He writes: If you thought that Israel has a highly professional, well-trained army, think again. The photo above shows the Israelis acting like the Nazis in Latvia in World War II. These men are not Hamas fighters. They are civilians. The bare chested man is a physician. Why is Israel, like the Nazis, photographing their victims after stripping them of their clothes? Also note that in the photo above you do not see piles of weapons. These men were not caring firearms. Just compare the photos. read full story / add a comment

The Israeli "Hannibal Directive" is the name of a controversial procedure used by Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) to prevent the capture of Israeli soldiers by the enemy and it says stopping them from being taken prisoner should be prevented by all means including up to killing their own forces. It seems during the Hamas raid on Oct 7th (2023), that Israel took this procedure to absurd levels and killed a lot more of their own including children to kill just a small number of their enemy. Then they used the death of their own by their own forces as the centre peice of the propaganda drive to launch and justify their genocidal campaign in Gaza.

The background for this comes from a report from Max Blumenthal of https://thegrayzone.com read full story / add a comment

There is clear evidence that Israeli has for many years planned to drive all the Palestinians out of their former ancestral lands and to drive them out of Gaza and then later the West Bank. Their current openly stated plan is to drive the South towards Egypt and across the border.

Right now they are bombing indiscriminately all over the Gaza and particularly northern Gaza to destroy everything and drive the people Southwards. At the same time Netanyahu has been embroiled in charges of corruption and political scandal and Israeli society is pretty much divided over his attempts to strip the judicial system of its power and make them political appointees.

So putting things in context, the whole idea that this was a surprise attack is extremely fishy and now evidence is pouring in to show that the whole thing has been orchestrated by sinister forces. The items below are collection of articles but the first is an of an interview of an Israeli settler who claimed the IDF/police were involved in the slaughter. read full story / add a comment

If the world public really wants to understand the secret of the indomitable strength of Israeli barbarism upon unarmed Palestinian civilian men women and children with such impunity before the impotent world, fully aided and abetted by Western governments, with full propaganda cover by the Western news media, they have to understand the power of the name Rothschild and its ability to hide in plain-sight because it owns all governments and all news media...

1st Nov 2023 “It became evident to US officials that Israeli leaders believed mass civilian casualties were an acceptable price in the military campaign,” The New York Times reported on Monday.

“In private conversations with American counterparts, Israeli officials referred to how the United States and other allied powers resorted to devastating bombings in Germany and Japan during World War II – including the dropping of the two atomic warheads in Hiroshima and Nagasaki – to try to defeat those countries,” the newspaper added.

Despite this horrifying knowledge, the Biden administration still adamantly opposes a ceasefire in Israel’s extermination campaign in Gaza. read full story / add a comment

On Wednesday evening, the Israeli army bombed many homes, buildings, public facilities, and a UNRWA-run school, killing dozens of Palestinians and wounding hundreds in the Gaza Strip.

Medical sources said dozens of Palestinians were killed and injured after the army fired missiles at a school run by the UNRWA near Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, where families have been staying after the army bombarded their homes in northern and central Gaza Strip. read full story / add a comment

NATIONAL DEMONSTRATION FOR PALESTINE: STOP GAZA GENOCIDE!

At the time of writing, Apartheid Israel has cut off all aid, water and power to over million people trapped in the Gaza Strip. It has engaged in widespread and indiscriminate bombing, killing almost 3,500 people, one third of them children. Civilian infrastructure has been decimated; homes, offices, hospitals, schools and universities have all been targeted, as have medics and journalists. One million people have been displaced. The health system is on the brink of collapse. read full story / add a comment

No, not really. Israel did not confess war crimes. It never does. It proudly announced that it will now commit a war crime:

Israel's defence minister described Palestinians as "human animals" and vowed to "act accordingly," as fighter jets unleashed a massive bombing campaign on the Gaza Strip. read full story / add a comment
