  • History of Palestine and Palestinians [basic stuff]

    10/30/2022 10:57:53 AM PDT · by Words Matter · 16 replies
    After the revolt of Bar Kokhba against the Roman Empire (132-135 C.E.), the Judea province was renamed Syria Palaestina by the Roman Emperor Hadrian to detach the Judean province from Jewish identity. In recent history, the area called Palestine includes the territories of the present-day Israel and Jordan (see the map). From 1517 to 1917 most of this area remained under the rule of the Ottoman Empire. During World War I, in 1917, the British army occupied Jerusalem. On November 2, 1917, the British foreign secretary Arthur James Balfour issued the Balfour Declaration for "the establishment in Palestine of a...

    In Maine, the Governor signed suppressor, (gun muffler, silencer) reform into law. The change in law took effect on 8 June, 2021. It is now part of Chapter 112, Public Law. When the Maine legislature reformed Maine’s ban on hunting with suppressors, the law required a hunter to obtain a special permit to hunt with suppressors. It was an added bureaucratic burden which did not good. It increased useless paperwork and wasted everyone involved’s time.Here is how the old law read. From Permit. In accordance with this subsection, the commissioner may issue a permit to a person allowing that...

    “We have no servers. We have no bussers. People are voluntarily waiting for their food in the parklets,” John Duggan said. After his family’s restaurant, Original Joe’s, caught some heat on Wednesday for allowing customers to eat their take-out orders in its parklet, John Duggan is now speaking out. “We’re not encouraging people to dine outside. At the same time, we’re never going to stop being hospitable and gracious to the customers we desperately need at this time to keep our lights on to survive and to keep our people employed,” Duggan said. “If they’re not gonna sit, they have...

    Not only does she take on, by name, prosecutors and former prosecutors who continue to serve in powerful and responsible positions, she is also relentless in criticizing judges before whom she has practiced for years. Few lawyers have the stones to do this...... A lesson for those who would question the claims she is making to the voter fraud allegations in the 2020 US elections – Sidney Powell does not bluff her way through legal cases, she takes cases where injustice can be revealed. Experienced lawyers such as these three would never take this kind of risk unless they had...

    Google will keep its employees working from home for at least another full year. Staff at the search giant — who were first sent home in March due to the coronavirus pandemic — are not expected to return in a large capacity until at least July 2021, according to the Wall Street Journal. Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai was reportedly “swayed in part by sympathy for employees with families to plan for uncertain school years that may involve at-home instruction, depending on geography.” Silicon Valley’s tech titans have signaled that working from home may be the new norm moving forward.

    Iran may be preparing for conflict with Israel in Syria and no longer will accept Israeli airstrikes on its warehouses without a response, a report over the weekend suggested. Veteran journalist Elijah Magnier wrote on the website Medium about whether the “great Middle Eastern war will begin in the Levant” and cited Syria as a potential flashpoint. Magnier’s report is interesting because he asserts that according to “private” sources, Iran is evacuating “sites of the gatherings of its advisers, not for withdrawal or for redeployment, but to find bases within the Syrian Army barracks. Hezbollah has taken over the vacated...

    The next time you go to photograph your food, you might want to check the skies. While visiting York, Maine, Alicia Jessop, a sports law professor at Pepperdine University, went to take a picture of the lobster roll she just purchased from Fox’s Lobster House. It had the makings of a classic New England scene: lobster roll in the foreground, Nubble Lighthouse in the background. But a nearby seagull had other ideas. Just as Jessop was taking her photo, the seagull swooped in and stole her lobster roll.
