This country has been having a nationwide nervous breakdown since 9/11. A nation of people suddenly broke, the market economy goes to shit, and they’re threatened on every side by an unknown, sinister enemy. But I don't think fear is a very effective way of dealing with things—of responding to reality. Fear is just another word for ignorance.”

While most major American Jewish organizations staunchly support Israel in its war against Hamas, dissent has quietly been growing among their often younger employees, some of whom are now speaking out to “demonstrate broad support within the Jewish community for a ceasefire.”

Some of you probably noticed that the entire media was relying on numbers from the Gaza authorities (they have some complicated way of claiming it’s the PA acting autonomously, but it’s literally Hamas – the PA has no ability to act autonomously in Gaza) for the death tolls, and maybe thought it was weird that the media wasn’t making an effort to claim that they were exaggerating the deaths.

Well, the reason the media didn’t want to touch that is that the death estimates – as we’ve said several times – were totally low-balled.

The United States believes that Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) is actively playing a part in the missile and drone strikes carried out against "Israel" and targeting shipping in the Red Sea, Deputy National Security Adviser Jon Finer said on Thursday.

Speaking at the Aspen Security Forum, Finer stated, "We believe that they are involved in the conduct of these attacks, the planning of them, the execution of them, the authorization of them and ultimately they support them."

Commenting on the state of the battlefront along the Lebanese-Palestenian borders, Israeli Kan channel military affairs analyst, Roi Sharon said it was clear that Hezbollah "is running things in the North" pressing the Israeli Occupation Forces into defense. 

Sharon warned that if the fighting in the north escalates a notch it would entail an all-out war. 

The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro, who has spent years railing against affirmative action and identity politics, on Thursday celebrated Palantir announcing that they're "setting aside 180 positions" just for Jewish college students who say they feel "unsafe" at America's Ivy League universities.

Israel-Palestine war: Israeli forces destroy central archive of Gaza city MikeRivero Fri, 12/08/2023 - 08:30

Heavy Israeli bombardment has destroyed the central archive of Gaza City, according to the Gaza municipality. 

Photos published by local media and Birzeit University in the occupied West Bank showed the building heavily damaged, with papers and documents littering the floor. 

While US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has been frantically shuttling around the Middle East trying to stop the Israeli conflict in Gaza from exploding into a regional war, the United States has also sent two aircraft-carrier strike groups, a Marine expeditionary unit and 1,200 extra troops to the Midd

Benjamin Netanyahu’s hold on his position as prime minister of Israel appears increasingly tenuous.

Many Israelis hold him and his cabinet responsible for the security failures of October 7, and he has come under heavy domestic criticism for his handling of the war on Gaza. Add to that the fact he has long been bogged down by corruption charges and criticism over plans to change the judicial system.

A bereaved father, whose 8-year-old son was shot dead by soldiers, stood this week at the entrance to his home at the border of the Jenin refugee camp and stated the simple truth: "These children will never forgive the soldiers. You're raising another generation of resistance. Now our children want Israeli children to be killed too."

The ancient Othman bin Qashqar Mosque, located in the old town of Gaza City, was bombed by Israeli warplanes on Thursday, causing casualties among people and damage to nearby homes, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

The mosque was built in the year 620 Hijra (1220 AD), and it is one of the oldest mosques and archaeological sites in the Gaza Strip.
