In less than 4 months we went from:
– energy independence to gas shortages
– border security to border crisis
– Middle East peace to Middle East war
– job creation to a disastrous jobs report
– economic recovery to massive inflation
– respected globally to global laughingstock

According to Israel’s Channel 12, the emergency Security Cabinet meeting has approved increasing strikes against Hamas.
The security cabinet has approved an escalation of military strikes in Gaza, Channel 12 reports. The network says Israel is now expected to strike symbols of Hamas’s rule in Gaza, including, for instance, the terror group’s Treasury building.
The decision by ministers likely means that the conflict will Hamas will last several days yet.
The UN is now warning full-scale imminent after at least 53 Palestinians and 5 Israelis were killed by airstrikes and rocket fire from Gaza. Hundreds of people are injured.
Just 16 out of the 53 Palestinians killed by the IDF were militants, the rest are children, women and innocent bystanders.
This is a cluster fuck for IDF in terms of PR, but then again, that’s business as usual in Israel for the past 50 years at least. Israel isn’t concerned about PR, probably because they’re preparing for a new liberal government.

Mind you, the IDF is a high tech 21st century army financed with hundreds of billions of US taxpayer dollars, while Palestine doesn’t even has a regular army, they’re basically a bunch of guerrilla warfare ragheads armed with AK47’s and bottle rockets.

This is not the first time Bibi Netanyahu is milking the Palestinian conflict nonsense, as this is his modus operandi every time he’s facing elections.
This time, it seems to be a bigger deal than usual, with Donald Trump out of office and the pro-war Biden administration taking over US foreign policy. Basically, Israel seems ready and willing to foment broader conflict in the Middle East.
Israel stepped up its attacks on the Gaza Strip, flattening a high-rise building used by the Hamas militant group and killing at least three militants in their hideouts on Tuesday as Palestinian rockets rained down almost nonstop on parts of Israel.
It was the heaviest fighting between the bitter enemies since 2014, and it showed no signs of slowing.
It’s deeply concerning that the Biden regime seems fixated on immediately starting a number of large scale wars, including in the Ukraine, Syria and who knows, maybe even China. All kinds of things could happen, and what’s deeply worrying is that we have no idea who is running the US military right now.

So bombing civilian infrastructure is not a war crime anymore under UN law? Funny (not) how Israel always gets away with it, let alone the white phosphorus thing.
I’m not saying Hamas is innocent, but you can’t just keep bulldozing people out of their own homes to house your “own”, without expecting some kick back. The Palestinians had a nice, civilized land before the European Jews showed up.
Currently, Gaza is a concentration camp, nothing goes in there without Israel’s approval, including medicine and building supplies.
Bottom line is this: our stolen tax dollars are being used (and abused) to murder Palestinians, the rightful owners of Palestine. It’s amazing to watch that building being torn down by what looks like artillery fire by a vicious group of world swindlers at work destroying Palestinians in their ghetto.
We’re next in America.
Our pipelines, our businesses, our infrastructure are being systematically dismantled to Morgenthau us.
PS: Remember Operation ‘Cast Lead’ of 2014. It was pure massacre and war crimes for lack of word and none will agree to those atrocities despite one is Christian or Muslim or Jew for that matter.
