    Hamas is probably a puppet of MI6.

    The last big skirmish/massacre in Gaza a few years back was a deliberate horror show to smoke out critical voices from the media and fire them. For now, I'm running on an assumption that this is part of a synchronised op to drive up emotions and trigger careless words and behaviour thousands of miles away.

    Don't get triggered. They have tightened up the law on 'hate speech' in Europe and UK, so maybe they want to take it for a spin.

    A year of trials for hate speech and taboo political opinions would be perfect for a certain faction in this global fight in the run up to A US AND a UK election next year.
    I agree with you about not getting immediately triggered over this; Everything these last several years is NOT what it seems....

    The first red flag I've noticed is all the media etc., are calling this a "surprise attack". Really????????????? Are we really to believe that all most sophisticated intelligence agencies, spy agencies, and most highly trained embedded assets on the planet missed every sign possible that there might be some sort of attack?????? I call BS. This was obviously allowed to happen in my opinion.

    This could easily just be the beginning of the whole middle east spiraling into complete chaos....and the causation for chaos in many other locations around the globe due to those who are sympathetic to one side or the other involved. This is horrible no matter what angle you look at from.....
    It looks synchronised.

    Hamas official statement sounds almost exactly like words Hillary Clinton would put into the mouths of MAGA people right now.

    Hamas declared that Operation Al-Aqsa Flood had begun and that they had decided “….to put an end to all the crimes of the occupation (Israel), their time for rampaging without being held accountable is over,”

    Scott Ritter again.

    Hamas has reportedly captured Brigadier General Nimrod Aloni. Aloni stepped aside as the commanding officer of the Gaza Division in August 2022. He currently is the commander of the “Depth Corps”, a strategic force whose mission is to use Israeli special forces to operate in the depth of an enemy. It seems Hamas has turned the table on Israel, and is now operating in Israel’s strategic depth. This operation is extraordinarily well planned and executed. Any notion that Israel will be able to contain this attack soon is misplaced. Israel did not anticipate anything of this scope and scale. It is a massive intelligence failure for Israel, and an equally impressive operational success for Hamas.

    He says Zionists are pudding:


    The Palestinian Hamas resistance movement has rebuffed Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s claim that only “dozens” of Israelis have been taken captive in the ongoing operation against the regime.

    In a recorded message aired shortly after midnight on Sunday, Abu Ubaida, the spokesperson for the Gaza Strip-based movement’s military wing, al-Qassam Brigades, presented a differing account.

    “Today, you spoke of dozens of prisoners, but we assure you, Netanyahu, that the number of your captives far exceeds this count. You must keep better track of your soldiers,” Ubaida firmly stated. He continued, “These prisoners are dispersed throughout all areas of Gaza, and they share in the experiences of our people in the Gaza Strip.”

    The Palestinian resistance fighters have apprehended a substantial number of Israeli forces and settlers since the commencement of Operation al-Aqsa Storm on early Saturday. This operation marks the most significant effort by Palestinian resistance groups against the occupying regime in years. It is characterized by intensive rocket barrages and surprise attacks by resistance fighters on Israeli forces and settlers within the occupied territories.

    As of now, the operation has resulted in the loss of approximately 300 Israeli lives, with thousands more sustaining injuries, including hundreds in critical condition.

    Leaders of the resistance view this operation as a definitive response to the continuous campaign of violence and devastation perpetuated by the Israeli regime against the Palestinian people.

    In response to Netanyahu’s recent statements in which he threatened to employ all means to destroy the military capabilities of both Hamas and the Islamic Jihad movement, Abu Ubaida addressed the Israeli leader’s remarks, highlighting the deep crisis within the Israeli establishment. He remarked, “Threatening Gaza is a futile endeavor.”

    Directing his message to Netanyahu, Abu Ubaida continued, “You threaten us with any army, but remember your soldiers who fled like locusts in the face of Qassam fighters, leaving everything behind in their haste.”



    The main reason behind this is most likely Bin Salman's attempt at normalization with Israel.



    Hezbollah announced on Sunday it had targeted three Israeli posts in occupied Shebaa Farms, in a clear message of solidarity with Palestinian people and resistance.

    It named the three sites: Radar, Zibdin and Ruweissat Al-Alam. The resistance fighters used a significant number of artillery shells and guided missiles, resulting in direct hits on these sites, the statement added.

    In Iran:


    In his enlightening address, Ayatollah Khamenei likened the "push for normalization" by some regional countries with the Zionist entity as "betting on the losing horse."

    He predicted that such "normalization" is bound to fail, as the Palestinian resistance has pushed the Zionist regime to the brink of extinction.

    On Saturday, a week after his remarks, the Palestinian resistance movement in the Gaza Strip launched a surprise attack on the occupied territories involving aerial, sea and ground operations.

    "The Islamic Republic firmly believes that governments that have the normalization gamble with the Zionist regime on their agenda will be in harm's way," he told the guests in a speech televised live. "This regime is dying and those states are betting on the losing horse.”


    “If countries such as Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, and the Persian Gulf countries adopt a united policy in their fundamental and general affairs, the aggressive powers will not be able to interfere in their internal affairs or in their foreign policy. They are interfering at this point,” he said, as cited on his website.



    Palestinian political commentator and former detainee Ziad Hamouri told the Press TV website that the Al-Aqsa Storm “stands as a bureaucratic and security failure for the Israeli regime” and “proves that all the regime’s institutions suffer a resounding failure including the Shin Bet and Mossad.”

    Is it possible that this latest Hamas attack on Isreal was in part triggered by the recent missile attack on a graduation ceremony at a Syrian military college, killing & injuring hundreds of people, including women and children. While the attacker has not yet been identified, it is a fact that over the past several years Isreal has conducted multiple unprovoked attacks on Syria, killing many Syrians. Isreal claims to be eliminating Iranian militants from Syrian soil (as if they have the right to do that...). Did Isreal ever think that such unprovoked attacks would result in closer collaboration between middle east countries against Isreal. Which is in fact happening, as we can see from info in the post above.

    It could be tangentially related, perhaps to bring Syria into the upcoming war that may take place on multiple fronts, but Hamas' operation took months of planning to be carried out with such precision and success. That of course also leads one to wonder, fora n operation that was planned for months involving hundred of operatives how was nothing picked up on? Israeli arrogance at the capabilities of Hamas may be part of the reason, but there are plenty of intelligence people who have been warning about the growing strength for Hamas for months.

    Watching the news, it is funny (as much humor as one can find at this time) how ever hour or two they come back and mention about "conspiracies" that this was an inside job and how everyone should ignore that, as the army did a thorough investigation and ruled that out... a thorough investigation in less than 24 hours when we are meant to believe they were caught with their pants down.

    Slightly going off topic, but I would appreciate advice from everyone here on the following. I just had a run-in with a fundamentalist christian who believes literally that the bible holds all of the unquestionable truth about history and the future. According to this person Isreal has only taken back its own god-given lands in the state of Isreal, and Palestinians are just usurpers who thoroughly deserve to be kicked out. The worse is this belief of the biblical end times prophecy, where the fundamentalists urgently hope for, and even intervene for, that the end times second return of christ is dependent on Isreal regaining control of the state, and/or the third rebuilding of the temple, and the complete destruction of Damascus. So, these dear christians hope and pray for all this destruction and killings because then they, as the elects, will be saved by the 'rapture'. (As per the book of "Revelations", I think.)

    I recall back in 2018 or 2019 watching a video of then secretary of state Mike Pompeo addressing an audience of christians assuring them that they were working on making those prophecies happen, in particular the destruction of Damascus, with the USA military might at their disposal. All of which undoubtedly harming millions of innocent people in these middle eastern countries.

    All of this sends icy shivers down my spine, is anybody else feeling the evil emanating from such positions? So far, I've mostly been avoiding these 'christians', except for today where I soon found out that a fact-based rational discussion doesn't seem possible. What to say to christians who hold such disregard for palestinians? The complication is that this is someone with whom I had been working with on ending the covid mandates.

    What to say to a person of any religion, fundamental worldview? Well nothing.. such should be avoided. I have already concluded that it consumes too much energy. The solution lies in respecting other religions, cultures, everything, and we currently live in an era of division and fundamentalism. what a wonderful world.. :sarcasm:
    Is every mind connected to form a peer to peer network that creates the illusion of a shared reality, making the appearance of material reality a simulation created through shared beliefs?

    A personal summary note. Early morning here, and I'm working hard to catch up with news reports — and also to gain a deeper (non-knee-jerk!) understanding of what may really be happening here. I'm wary of jumping to too many quick conclusions, but (like many others, I suspect) my instinctive sympathies have always been with the Palestinians.

    However, the timing of all this invites many questions. And as many readers may know, there have been serious, credible predictions and prophecies of major events in October, or to happen 'soon'. See these threads for more:
    So this has my full attention. Whether engineered or not, this has the potential to spin rapidly way out of control. It appears that rockets have already been fired into Israel from Lebanon, and here's just one of many overnight Telegram posts summarizing the situation:

    https://t.me/CyberspecNews/44565

    The text:
    Israel is reportedly calling up thousands of reservists from abroad.
    So they expect a big fight.
    There's talk that IF the IDF launch a large scale ground operation into Gaza, it's likely that the war would then escalate to include at a minimum Hezbollah in the North and possibly Iran and some Arab states

    And just a little bit more. What I see — everywhere! — is a huge boiling pot of triggered emotion and hate. It's almost as if someone or something somewhere has turned up the emotional heat to 11, and is now sitting back to see what will ensue. (Not a joke. It feels like that.)

    Look at this, from Joel Pollak, the editor-in-chief of the Breitbart news portal: (The tweet has had 177,400 views)

    Despite what I posted above about the dangers of being triggered by emotion (all of which may be being engineered), I felt I had to share this. It's not rhetorical propaganda... it's a real person talking on video. Watch, and read the subtitles.

    This is copied simply in full here so that it can be read. I'm sure these events happened. One of the signficances here is that videos like this will be being circulated everywhere in the Arab/anti-Israeli world right now, with predictable results.
    Watch this video that the pro-Zionist media does not want you to see because it shows the true measure of Jewish 'morality'.
    These retired 'Israeli' soldiers recall - nonchalantly and with smiles on their faces - how they and their cohort did the following whilst ethnically cleansing Palestinian villages:
    Raped a 16-year-old Palestinian girl;
    Gathered Palestinians into a cage and killed them;
    Burned fleeing villagers alive with flamethrowers;
    Killed every unarmed person they came across EVEN SCHOOLCHILDREN WHO HAD THEIR HANDS RAISED;
    One of them laughs almost hysterically when asked to count how many he killed. "It's not possible for me to know" , he says, "I fired and killed everyone".
    GRN has covered how the Palestinian fighters are indeed protecting women and children - something the media will never show you.
    Saraya Al-Qassam Commander Mohammed al-Deif (H.A.) said at the outset of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood that Palestinian fighters should "not harm the young or the old, but fight!"
    Despite the sheer evil nature of the enemy the Palestinian Resistance does not stoop to Jewish levels. It operates according to Islamic principles.
    There is no argument here, there is no debate. This war between Palestine and the usurping Zionist entity is one of right versus wrong and good versus evil.

    Thanks Bill - the last post refers the Tantura massacre in 1948 and a recent documentary that came out in 2022 (well worth watching - https://www.tantura-film.com/). The story behind the documentary itself is also very interesting - in a nutshell an Israeli scholar who wrote his thesis on this and was effectively silenced and discredited for exposing a narrative that went against the binary Israel == good, Arab == bad. The director of this documentary came across this case and after looking into it felt compelled to expose it. Here is a good article about the original scholar (Teddy Katz - https://mondoweiss.net/2016/03/the-t...-of-teddy-katz)

    Emotions are certainly high for everyone involved... as outraged and saddened as I am to see kidnapped Israeli children being bullied and pushed around, videos of a family seeing their daughter executed by Hamas, and the aftermath of a family in Gaza wiped out by yet mroe bombing, what really boils my blood is how accepting everyone is at the ridiculous narrative that this was just happenstance and chance and not an orchestrated event. It defies any logic or common sense but sadly it's easier to bury your head in the sand than confront the truth and all of its implications.

    One of the most impressive journalists and commentators for many a year now, Eva Bartlett, posted the following very interesting piece on her Telegram channel earlier today:

    -----------------------------
    I've never been through Erez (only been shot with live ammunition at by Israeli soldiers from Erez), but have seen footage of the crossing before this, very fortified.

    If Resistance have taken control, impressive!

    *Note: The reason I haven't gone into/out of Gaza via Erez is that the Zionists do not allow honest journalists in.

    I first entered Gaza by boat from Cyprus (November 2008) and subsequently left and returned via the Rafah crossing.

    I also once entered and left by tunnel. Guess what I saw in the tunnels: Palestinian civilians who otherwise couldn't exit the open air prison that is the Gaza Strip, leaving to Egypt for the medical care they cannot get in Gaza because of Israel’s inhumane, brutal, 15+ year siege on Gaza (prohibiting entry of vital medicines and medical equipment), Israeli wars on Gaza (targeting hospitals), and the long power outages (sometimes 20 hours off when I lived there, otherwise at least 8 or 10 orn12 hours off, daily) due to Israel’s bombing of Gaza's sole power plant back in 2006

    All of this has devastated Gaza's medical system. Hence, since Israel usually doesn't allow Palestinians with medical referrals to exit Gaza, and Egypt (when I was there) made it almost impossible for Palestinians to exit, the tunnels were the only option.
    I've written quite a lot about Israel’s sadistic siege on Gaza and the consequences it has had on Palestinians' ability to simply survive, summarized (with links) here: https://ingaza.wordpress.com/2014/01...stine-in-gaza/

    In a direct counter to this propaganda are the pictures of murdered Israeli civilians, shot in the head, their bodies left where they fell. Many of the murdered were children and seniors. Not to mention the Palestinian paratroopers that shot at everything that moved as they neared the ground.

    How about the body of the young German girl, whose half naked body was paraded around in the back of a pick-up truck.

    So don't try and say how lovely and life-affirming the Palestinians, Iranians, and the Taliban are...

    I've NOT yet listened to this (it was published 3 minutes ago!), but Alexander Mercouris is sure to offer a balanced, cautious, and accurate summary of what the heck is happening and why.

    ... answering the question "How could 9-11 even happen?"... should give one an idea of what this event actually is... something to do with flags:

    A timely reminder from Henry Makow. There's been speculation in the past on the provenance, or at least the true author, but it has been authored, by someone with prophetic 'insight':
    ""The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other.""
    - allegedly Albert Pike to Giuseppe Mazzini, 1871

    There are references to this throughout the forum, but a source can be found here
