    Until now, corporate media haven’t blinked an eye over the destruction of hundreds of millions of innocent embryos.After the Alabama Supreme Court ruled frozen human embryos should be treated with care, corporate media spent months lambasting in vitro fertilization critics and advocating for killing the embryos at adults’ leisure. Outlets’ tunes, however, changed this week when stories began to circulate about Israel allegedly destroying the “majority of Gaza’s frozen embryos.” Reuters published an article, video segment, and podcast last week lamenting a December airstrike it says destroyed an estimated 4,000 frozen embryos in Gaza City’s Al Basma IVF facility, as...

    Isra Hirsi, a pro-Hamas protester who participated in protests at Columbia University, has been suspended from Barnard College. Hirsi happens to be the daughter of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a member of the Hamas Caucus in Congress, which further shows that the proverbial apple does not fall far from the tree.In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Hirsi complained “in my 3 years at [Barnard College], I have never been reprimanded or received any disciplinary warnings,” and explained that she “just received notice that [she is] 1 of 3 students suspended for standing in solidarity with Palestinians facing genocide.”i’m an...

    The US on Thursday vetoed a Security Council resolution to admit the Palestinian Authority as a full member state of the United Nations. 12 countries voted in favor of the resolution: Slovenia, Sierra Leone, Russia, South Korea, Mozambique, Malta, Japan, Guyana, France, Ecuador, China, and Algeria. Two countries abstained – Britain and Switzerland. Foreign Minister Israel Katz said following the vote, “The proposal to recognize a Palestinian state, more than 6 months after the largest massacre of Jews since the Holocaust and after the sexual crimes and other atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists was a reward for terrorism.” “I commend...

    Anti-Israel protesters blocked a roadway to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport early Monday, causing extreme frustration and a snarl of traffic. To block the flow of traffic, protesters sat down in the middle of Interstate 190 with their arms interlocked and used “long tubes” to keep cars from going into the airport, the New York Post reported.

    OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Protesters are causing major traffic issues across the Bay Area, including in Oakland and on the Golden Gate Bridge, as part of a worldwide economic blockade in solidarity with Palestine.

Law enforcement had to cut through the barrels before they could arrest the protesters. Only one lane has been opened. Southbound I-880 has also closed as hundreds of protesters made their way onto the highway with...

    At an anti-Israel demonstration in Dearborn, Michigan, Tarek Bazzi led the crowd in chants of "death to America." When Fox reporter Hillary Vaughn asked Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich) about this the Congresswoman called the chant "a legitimate viewpoint. If my constituents feel this way it is my duty to honestly represent their views in Congress." "The whole world knows that Israel is the instigator of most of the world's problems," she added. "The October 7 attack was a justified response to these instigations. Israel has been illegally occupying Palestinian lands since 1948. Any actions taken to try to persuade the...

    Ireland is close to formally recognizing a Palestinian state and would like to do so in concert with Spain and other like-minded countries, its new prime minister Simon Harris said on Friday after meeting his Spanish counterpart Pedro Sanchez, reported the Reuters news agency. “Let me this evening say our assessment is that that point is coming much closer and we would like to move together in doing so,” Harris said after meeting Sanchez, the first premier to visit Dublin since Harris became prime minister this week. “When we move forward, we would like to do so with as many...

    First of all, did you even hear about the explosive device planted and detonated outside the Alabama Attorney General's office back in February? The 'news' media offered some perfunctory coverage at the time, but consider the circumstances and context: Just a few days prior, the state's Supreme Court had issued a highly controversial ruling involving frozen embryos, with possible implications for in vitro fertilization. The subsequent uproar garnered national attention, as many journalists were eager to jump all over a story they perceived as politically beneficial to both their preferred political party, and to their unlimited abortion agenda. The GOP-controlled...

    Representative James Clyburn (D-SC) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he believed the only way to move forward was to end the Israel-Hamas war and reach a two-state solution with Palestine. Host Kristen Welker said, “As you know, looming large over that event including with some protesters is the war in the Middle East and, in fact, a new Gallup poll now oppose Israel’s war in Gaza and approval has dropped from 50 to 36% since November. There were a number of interruptions at that fund raiser and a growing number of Democrats are calling this a genocide...

    This week, President Biden, in observance of the International Day to Combat Islamophobia, condemned "the hate that Muslims face because of their beliefs and the ugly resurgence of Islamophobia following the war in Gaza. Let us rededicate ourselves to a world where people of all faiths are free to live without fear." Meanwhile, Imam Abdou Zindani observed the International Day to Combat Islamophobia by saying "one day Muslims will slaughter Jews like sheep." A poll in Palestine found that 71% see the October 7 attack and massacre of unarmed civilian Israeli Jews as a good decision and that 93% do...
  • 10,000 foreign workers to arrive by June to save construction industry

    The Jerusalem Post ^ | 17 March 2024 | Yosi Dayan
    By the end of June, more than 10,000 foreign workers from India will be employed in Israel, and at the same time, the process of absorbing about 10,000 foreign workers from other countries such as Georgia, Sri Lanka, Azerbaijan, and more will begin. The arrival of foreign workers will save the construction industry, which is currently in collapse, and most of the construction sites are closed. The trend is to bring about 40,000 more workers to Israel to complete a quota of 65,000 foreign workers because Palestinian workers who worked in the construction industry no longer come to work in...

    We had several other people in the country, even among the Jews, Zionists, particularly, who were against anything that has to be done if they couldn't have the whole of Palestine, everything, handed to them on a silver plate, so they wouldn't have to do anything; it couldn't be done. We had to take it in small doses. You can't move 5 or 6 million people out of a country and fill it up with 5 or 6 million more and expect both sets of them to be pleased. But don't think that decision to recognize Israel was an easy...

I am about to engage in an extreme act of protest,” the...

    Simply put, the idea of “Palestine” is dead and buried, and no matter how hard they may try, Western politicians will never be able to revive it. In recent weeks, various leaders of Western countries have publicly broached the idea of the unilateral recognition of a Palestinian state, asserting that the time has come to give the Palestinians independence, even in the absence of a negotiating process. UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron and more recently French President Emmanuel Macron have floated this suggestion, despite the ongoing war in Gaza. But what these esteemed statesmen have apparently failed to grasp is...
