    Aaron Burned Himself to Make us Look at Gaza

    Like many readers here I feel helpless about the ongoing genocide against Palestinians committed by U.S. supported Zionist settlers in the West Bank and Gaza. I can not even find the right words to express myself about it.

    Others are more consequential. And powerful. Disgust about the cruelty imposed on Palestinians can induce the utmost will to change things.

    U.S. Air Force Member Sets Self on Fire Outside Israel’s Embassy in D.C. to Protest War in Gaza - Time, Feb 25 2024
    An active-duty member of the U.S. Air Force set himself on fire outside the Israeli embassy in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, in apparent protest of the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, which he described as a “genocide.”
    ...
    The burn victim, who identified himself in video of the incident as 25-year-old Aaron Bushnell, reportedly succumbed to his injuries on Sunday night, according to independent journalist Talia Jane, who posted on social media that she is in contact with Bushnell’s family and friends.

    bigger
    Bushnell reportedly sent a message to media outlets before his planned self-immolation. “​​Today, I am planning to engage in an extreme act of protest against the genocide of the Palestinian people,” he warned. ...
    On Facebook Sunday morning, he also wrote: “Many of us like to ask ourselves, ‘What would I do if I was alive during slavery? Or the Jim Crow South? Or apartheid? What would I do if my country was committing genocide?’ The answer is, you’re doing it. Right now.” The post included a link to a live-stream of his protest on the web-broadcasting platform Twitch, which has since removed the video for violations of its community guidelines and terms of service. “I will no longer be complicit in genocide. I’m about to engage in an extreme act of protest,” the airman repeated, in footage reviewed by TIME, as he walked toward the driveway of the Israeli embassy. “But compared to what people have been experiencing in Palestine at the hands of their colonizers, it’s not extreme at all. This is what our ruling class has decided will be normal.” After Bushnell doused himself with liquid and reached for his lighter, unidentified law enforcement or security officers could be heard asking off-screen, “Can I help you?” After setting himself aflame, he repeatedly shouted “Free Palestine.”
    A security man decided to 'help' by pointing his gun on the dying man.

    A censored video of the incident is here.

    Rest in peace, Aaron Bushnell. Rest. In. Peace.

    Israel plans $60bn debt raising and tax rises to fuel defence spending
    Finance ministry accountant general says demobilisation of reservists will boost economy

    Israel plans to raise about $60bn in debt this year, freeze government hiring and increase taxes as it almost doubles its defence spending to support its war in Gaza, according to a senior finance official.

    Israel’s more than four-month conflict with Hamas has taken a severe toll on the economy, which shrank almost 20 per cent on an annualised basis in the last quarter of 2023.

    The hit came as the government mobilised a record 300,000 reservists; tens of thousands of people were displaced in the north and south of the country; and consumer spending slumped. About 150,000 Palestinians workers have also been prevented from entering Israel from the occupied West Bank.

    But Yali Rothenberg, the finance ministry’s accountant general, told the Financial Times that he expected the economy to begin to recover as large numbers of reservists are demobilised and consumer spending picks up.

    “The economic fundamentals are there,” he said. “If you look at the high-tech sector, it’s there. If you look at the infrastructure investment, it’s there. If you look at the private consumption, it’s there.”

    Rothenberg said a critical factor in restoring the health of Israel’s economy was the demobilisation of reservists. He said that the number still serving was about a fifth of the 300,000 called up after Hamas’s October 7 attack that killed 1,200 people, according to Israeli officials, and triggered the war.

    That number was expected to drop to between 30,000-40,000 by the end of March, he added, saying the conflict was “de-escalating”.

    “This is the scenario which is budgeted,” Rothenberg said.

    The government is, however, threatening to expand its offensive in Gaza to Rafah, a southern city where more than 1mn people already displaced from their homes have sought sanctuary, despite international warnings that an assault in such a densely populated area would be devastating.

    The Israeli offensive has killed more than 29,000 people, according to Palestinian health officials, devastated huge swaths of the strip and forced more than 85 per cent of the 2.3mn population from their homes.

    And despite demobilising thousands of reservists, Israel has said it expects to maintain a security presence in the strip for the foreseeable future. The office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday released a plan for postwar Gaza that envisages Israel maintaining a sizeable security buffer within the enclave.

    There are also concerns that almost daily clashes between militant movement Hizbollah and Israeli forces across the Lebanese-Israeli border could escalate into a full-blown conflict.

    It is against this backdrop that the government plans to raise defence spending this year by 55bn shekels ($15bn), an 85 per cent increase on the prewar defence budget. That would push defence spending to about 20 per cent of the 2024 budget, the finance ministry said, up from 13.5 per cent before the war. The draft budget for 2024 is being reviewed by committees in the Knesset and is expected to be passed next month.

    “We think there will be increased defence spending in Israel for the coming years,” Rothenberg said. “This is why we took the fiscal steps right now.”

    He added that a committee of experts from outside the government had been established to advise on future defence spending.

    State revenue for 2023 came in at 12bn shekels below forecast, while the government increased spending by about 26bn shekels because of the war. That included an additional $4.7bn on defence as the finance ministry issued special permits to allow the government to operate outside the budget immediately after Hamas’s October 7 attack.

    In a bid to balance the books, the ministry plans to increase value added tax from 17 per cent to 18 per cent in 2025, while this year and next it will increase taxes such as those on smoking and banking, freeze government hires and defer public sector wage increases.

    Moody’s this month lowered Israel’s sovereign rating from A1 to A2 over concerns about the war in Gaza, its indefinite duration and the broader impact on the economy. The rating agency also lowered Israel’s debt outlook to negative due to the risk of the conflict spreading to the country’s northern front.

    Last month, Israel’s central bank governor urged the government to rapidly curb spending, warning that its market “credibility” depended on it making budget adjustments, including cuts to expenditure and increases to revenue.

    Israel’s government is forecasting a budget deficit of 6.6 per cent of gross domestic product this year, and predicts that growth will drop from 2 per cent in 2023 to 1.6 per cent this year.

    After the war broke out, it borrowed about 81bn shekels, pushing the debt-to-GDP ratio to about 62 per cent, its highest level in about eight years.

    The ministry expects that ratio to rise by another five or six percentage points this year as it looks to tap domestic and international markets to raise about 250bn shekels. However, it forecasts that debt-to-GDP will remain below 70 per cent.

    Rothenberg, who has been meeting investors in New York and London, said most of the debt would be raised locally, but added the ministry was looking “intently” at the dollar market, saying “everything was on the table”.

    “Investors really want to own some Israeli paper, they think it’s an opportunity and people recognise the de-escalation,” he said.

    Red Sea crisis faces new problem – oil tanker shortage

    The Biden administration's strikes against Yemen's Houthi movement targets appear to be ineffective at resolving the ongoing Red Sea crisis. As the Houthis targeted the Torm Thor tanker in the Gulf of Aden the other day, the shipping crisis in the Red Sea is facing a new problem – a shortage of tankers.

    Houthi attacks have already prompted traffic to be rerouted away from the Suez Canal, making journeys longer and costlier.

    With only two new supertankers expected to join the aging fleet in 2024, as per Banchero Costa shipping services data, a lack of capacity is expected to make itself acutely felt.

    “The situation is tight in the tanker market, in particular for crude oil tankers,” Enrico Paglia, research manager at Banchero Costa, was cited as saying. Media reports suggest the situation could grow even more challenging in the future.

    The Houthi movement vowed in November 2023 to attack any ships associated with Israel until it halts military actions in the Gaza Strip. Neither the multinational operation to secure navigation in the Red Sea, nor US and UK strikes against Houthi positions have forced the Yemeni militia to cower. Instead, they have vowed to ramp up the campaign of attacks until Tel Aviv halts its campaign in Gaza.

    Maybe a weird question of mine, discussing 25-year young Aaron Bushnell (here & here) ... He may have a girlfriend or is married ... I do not know ... maybe he has (a) sister(s)/brother(s), definitely a father, mother, grandparents etc. etc.

    • What can we say to all potential future drastic activists out there who might want to do the same? ... What can we say to convince there are other ways to make a difference?
    Before I answer/respond to that question, I want to see other Avalonians come with some ideas/suggestions ... Hoping to prevent more loss of very sensitive, super committed Souls!

    There must be a way to reach out to many others who also have strong feelings about what is happening in Israhell vs Gaza ... the systematic demonization & dehumanization of all Palestinians is so obvious that when using systematic generalization rhetoric to "justify" what they do >>> OTHERS can do the same to all ISRAELI ... They set a new standard of how to dehumanize a whole group of people and when that is mirrored back they seem to forget why things are to backfire on a massive scale. Not all Israelis "hate" all Palestinians, but they make sure that almost all eventually do, through their genocidal actions that will have HUGE consequences.

    • Would ISRAEL have done what they did without the backing & (financial & military) aid coming from the USA/EU?
    • Would ISRAEL have done what they did without the "blessing" coming from US NeoCons & US NeoLibs PLUS the Mainstream Media (Fox/CNN/MSNBC/ABC/AP/Reuters/New York Times/Washington Post etc.) who are equally complicit?

    The story of Bushnell is not merely a recounting of tragedy but a clarion call to examine the roles and responsibilities we, as a society, bear in the face of global injustices. It is a reflection that asks us to ponder deeply where duty ends and where conscience begins.

    We unveil the background of Bushnell's fateful decision, rooted in the orders that drove him to the brink of despair—an expectation to deploy to Israel on short notice, a demand that challenged his very principles.

    A biblical disaster
    24 seconds
    War, famine, pestilence and disease – the four horsemen of the apocalypse – are galloping all over Gaza. I can't bear it . . .

    The Russians may be using the Houthis as proxies. This news is not in the MSM

    Houthis attack underwater communications cables in the Red Sea.
    The Houthis have attacked underwater cables connecting Europe with Asia, leading to serious interruptions in the work of internet communications, according to the media outlet Vzglyad.ru

    The main damage is felt in the countries of the Persian Gulf and India, according to Ura.ru per a message of the newspaper Globe to Vzglyad.ru
    In this material it is noted that repairs to the cables will take at least eight weeks – Vechernaya Moskva.

    Aaron Bushnell ...
    Maybe a weird question of mine, discussing 25-year young Aaron Bushnell (here & here) ... He may have a girlfriend or is married ... I do not know ... maybe he has (a) sister(s)/brother(s), definitely a father, mother, grandparents etc. etc.
    Although not as extreme, the situation with Chelsea Manning was very similar - young people being put in situations where they see their side is committing atrocities, horrors and they are torn apart by not wanting to be part of that.

    Although not currently implementable, the solution would be, in my view, to not have a soulless bloodthirsty money and power hungry war machine putting young people in these horrible positions in the first place.

    This whole horror in Gaza, and this incident where a decent young man of conscience can see no other way to not be part of the bloodletting - it sears the soul.

    I have no more words.

    🇮🇷 Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani described the screams of the American officer who set himself on fire outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington as the voice of an awakened conscience against the complicity of the US government in the genocide of the Palestinians.
