The polls that have come out since the war began have shown a disconnect between the people at the helm in Arab countries and the average person on the street. The former have demonstrated that they will support the Greater Israel project which means that resistance will have to come from the streets. Like we saw with the Arab Spring, these things aren't always black & white....would the same players arm the newly minted resistance fighters?

Good points! But the Arab Spring/color revolution actions have also been pretty well controlled or at least infiltrated by the usual suspects...

The attack on the WCK was to speed up the starvation process,

Al Jazeera reports,

Israel’s attack on convoy could push more aid groups out of Gaza

The Israeli military’s attack on the World Central Kitchen aid convoy is devastating – targeting one of the most prominent humanitarian organisations in Gaza coordinating much-needed food delivered through the recently established maritime corridor.

As we’ve heard from the directors, the charity has now suspended its operations in Gaza and is considering future work inside the enclave. This could lead to negative repercussions for the humanitarian situation in the desperate north, where the group was distributing aid.

The attack further shows that Israel, despite repeatedly saying it is facilitating aid within Gaza, is at the same time attacking aid workers, aid seekers, and now the very organisations responsible for distributing humanitarian relief.

From a Palestinian perspective, this could be a possible step by the Israeli military to push humanitarian organisations to stop operating inside Gaza. That would give the military more flexible operational mobility on the ground in the north and force residents to flee from there.

  • Aid ships heading from Cyprus to Gaza to turn back with undelivered aid

    Cyprus’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Theodoros Gotsis says 100 tons (90 tonnes) of aid were unloaded before World Central Kitchen suspended operations after seven of its workers were killed in an Israeli strike earlier today.
    About 240 tons (220 tonnes) of aid will be turned back.
    Cypriot Foreign Minister Constantinos Kombos said the charity is suspending its operations in Gaza out of respect for the victims as well as to review its security protocols.
    Cyprus has played a key role in establishing a maritime aid corridor to Gaza from its port city of Larnaca.

World Central Kitchen pausing operations in Gaza after ‘unforgivable’ attack

Here’s more from World Central Kitchen (WCK) on the Israeli attack that killed seven of the organisation’s team members.
“World Central Kitchen and the world – lost beautiful lives today because of a targeted attack by the [Israeli army],” said World Central Kitchen (WCK) CEO Erin Gore.
“This is not only an attack against WCK, this is an attack on humanitarian organisations showing up in the most dire of situations where food is being used as a weapon of war,” said Gore. “This is unforgivable”
The statement added that WCK is pausing our operations “immediately” in the region and would “make decisions about the future of our work soon”.
According to a post shared on social media before the attack, WCK was operating more than 60 kitchens in central and southern Gaza, cooking hundreds of thousands of meals each day.

Halting aid yet again due to the killing of the western aid workers is just wild. A clear, calculative way of ensuring there is legitimacy in the withholding of basic humanitarian assistance to a population so devoid of access to evwryday resources and sustenance. Surely the killing of western aid workers would legitimise the urgency and need to impose sanctions on Israel who have clearly gone utterly rogue…

Now the alarming news from earlier this week that The UK Government were privately advised they were breaking the law by not suspending arms sales to Israel has been buried.

Some background on the aid workers…not your typical selfless civilians. They’re still victims nonetheless of Israel’s crimes and this shouldn’t detract from the heinous manner in which they were killed…

Don’t want to be cynical here but surely they were sent there under the guise of aid but really to just further speed up any aid restrictions to Gazans and quicken the onslaught of famine and destitution?

From Al Jazeera

‘Horrifying’ killing of aid workers raises question over future of humanitarian work in Gaza

Al Jazeera’s Hind Khoudary, reporting from the al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir el-Balah, said she had spoken to the slain aid workers earlier in the day and their killing raises questions for other relief operations in Gaza.
“We know that there are five aid workers, who were working with World Central Kitchen: A Palestinian, Polish, British and Australian, and a fourth body is unrecognisable because it was severely injured. But, according to World Central Kitchen (WCK), employees that we met in al-Aqsa Hospital, they told us that he is an international worker also,” Khoudary said.
“They were on their way back from the aid convoy, the aid shipment that reached the Gaza Strip from Cyprus earlier today. They were on the way back to their guesthouse in Rafah when they were targeted in their vehicle near Deir el-Balah on al-Rashid Street, the main street that we [travel] through from the north to the southern area of the Gaza Strip,” Khoudary said.
Khoudary said that when she had spoken to the WCK staff earlier in the day, they said they were waiting on a “green light” to enter southern Gaza safely.
“We don’t know how they were targeted. We know that they have been – all of the international organisations have been – closely coordinating with Israeli forces. But this incident is horrifying and there are hundreds of other aid workers, international aid workers currently working” in Gaza, Khoudary said.
“Now the question is what is going to happen with other foreigners and international aid workers in the Gaza Strip.”
I want to add to how strange the targeting of WCK was. You posted this article less than a week ago, detailing the role of Israeli/US plug Jose Andres:

US State Dept’s favorite celebrity chef builds Gaza aid dock with stolen rubble

After years of accusing Russia of using food as a weapon in its conflict with Ukraine, State Department “culinary ambassador” José Andrés is working with the Israeli government to supplant UNRWA as the main supplier of aid to northern Gaza.

My first instinct was that Israel totally screwed up but Karly's mention of a false-flag attack and the comments you shared about intentionally chasing away all humanitarian groups have to be seriously considered. Again though it's odd to pump up Andres and the "aid port" for weeks only to assassinate their workers within a few days.

IDF soldiers lying on national news/current affairs programmes in Israel. They do segments condemning prominent social media documenters of the genocide, debase and devalue their claims and ‘set the record straight’. After footage goes viral of this IDF soldier humiliating and degrading a Palestinian man they’ve apprehended (no real context and reason given as to why the man has been held but is there ever a legitimate reason they give??) he says he was in fact helping the man and gave him a wheelchair to sit on and helped his family. The thread then further shows videos which weren’t included in the ‘news’ segment showing the IDF soldier pointing guns at elderly women and unarmed Palestinians.


They lost the information war months ago so this is all in vain. No one believes their version of conjured up shite passing as the truth.

I absolutely abhor this little unelected man. Delaying a general election and now ‘demanding’ Israel conducts a full investigation into what happened with the aid workers?

Would you ask a murderer to lead an investigation into his own crimes? All sense really does go out of the window with these Zionists. Yes, allow the rapist to examine the woman he raped. Allow the killer to examine the bodies he buried and mutiliated.

Gaza ‘genocide made by the West, enacted by Israel’

1 min

Trita Parsi: Presuming that Israel simply is breaking international law as part of the war but with no larger intent no longer holds IMO. Rather, Israel is seeking to either destroy these norms or create a new normal in which it - much like the US - will be untouchable above these laws and norms.

^^ if this is being said about and demonstrated by Israel when it's still relatively a political entity, just imagine for a moment, when it becomes a full-fledged theocracy. Back in 2004, at the second Jerusalem Summit, the usual suspects in attendance called for the creation of another organization to replace the UN.

Western capitals no longer treat Israel like a state, a political actor capable of slaughtering children, but rather as a sacred cause. So any opposition has to be a blasphemy ~ Jonathan Cook

Hi Karly, I do not believe Al-Aqsa will fall into their hands.
Israhell and its human devils are slated for defeat according to our eschatology.
The future khalifah state will be based in Al Quds (Jerusalem). God willing.
The Oppressive rulers on Muslim lands will also be dislodged.
I hear you. These guys are dead serious about their plans....just look at what they did to the world with 9/11. There are no depths of deceptions to which they won't sink. Just prepare for any and every eventuality :)
