GAZA: THE GEOPOLITICS OF MORAL DEGENERATES

PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, WEDNESDAY DEC. 6, 2023) — The Israeli counterpunch against Hamas has  gone past the justifiable stage and has entered into genocidal action worthy in quality though not quantity of the Holocaust.

THE PLANET hesitates to use numbers because they reduce human misery to a calculation, but qualification trumps hesitance. Numbers provide the dispassion of scope and for that become useful. Since the brutal Hamas attack on Oct. 7, 1,200 Israelis killed, more than 5,000 wounded/maimed … nearly 16,000 Palestinians killed, 150,000 wounded/maimed — most of them civilians.

Commensurate response transforms into mindless revenge when babies are thrown out with bathwater, and children blown to pieces in hospitals.

———- ooo ———-

From wire reports:

As of last week, 1.8 million people in Gaza were estimated to be internally displaced, according to UN – roughly 80% of the population.

Scores of wounded people could be seen being taken from rubble and to hospitals in southern Gaza throughout Monday in footage. One Reuters video showed a baby being rushed from a civilian car into Nasser Hospital in the southern city of Khan Younis. The 2-month-old lies on a stretcher, apparently unconscious, as doctors remove his clothes and connect him to an oxygen supply.

“They told us to leave Gaza, there’s a war in Gaza, so we left (the north) and came here to the south just like they asked. But this is what we’ve found in the south,” Ibrahim Esbeitan, the baby’s father said in the video, pointing at this child.

In Salah Al-Arja, in Rafah, residents were seen trying to rescue their loved ones from the rubble with their bare hands. “We were asleep and safe, they told us it was a safe area, Rafah and all, but at twenty past ten, they stuck it with barrels, destroying all the block, there were children, women, and martyrs,” an unnamed local resident told Reuters.

“There is no safe area, neither Rafah, nor Khan Younis, nor Gaza, nor Dier, they are all liars, they say it is a safe area, they let us seek refuge, they evacuated Khan Younis and Gaza and still they bomb.”

———- ooo ———-

The Israeli air-ground attack began in the north, pummeling northern Gaza into powder. The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) warned Gaza’s non-combatants to move south, promising safety. Those who fled did so without shelter or enough provisions (food, drink, medicines). Nonetheless, they saw their best chance at survival in the south.

_______________________

Here in America, our government has tried to make us all complicit in a massacre.

_______________________

Once they bunched into southern Gaza, the IDF focused their attacks on that section. A shooting gallery.

Here in America, our government threatens to make us all complicit in a massacre. Atrocity has only resulted in toothless official appeals to Israel to “be more careful” as it goes about its campaign of terror.

THE PLANET stands with no one except the poor people on both sides, especially with cornered Palestinians with nowhere to go. We stand with all people, in all territories, whose lives have been lost or ruined by senseless violence, all of it government-led — the geopolitics of degenerates powered by the religion of radicals.

Jew, Christian, Muslim.

All codes words for the permission of atrocity.

America standing by so that no one can come to help. There is no way the Muslim world forgets our part in this. If I am a South American thinking of crossing the border into America right now I need to consider what may happen to America when the backlash comes. And it will come in spades. And life in a Peruvian village may start to look pretty good.

Will you be voting for Joe Biden? Because Joe Biden is standing with Israel. Terror attacks, I believe, are coming and made much easier by the massive influx of people into this country. Illegal immigrants are already leaving this country because as one said, ” I would rather live on the streets of Venezuela than freeze in the streets of America”. The illegals are beginning to realize they have been duped. There is nothing here for them. They are just being used for votes and to create chaos.

Trump said yesterday he will be a dictator for 2 items only on his first day in office if he wins. He will “drill baby drill” and close our borders. Yes, I’m all in for both of those. Trump is not a dictator, but Biden’s system of government is a dictatorship not of just one person, but a whole system that wants to silence voices and tell us all how to live our lives.

Kufflinks says. Free cash is certified mid November,on November 28 he states is hasn’t been certified? He said it hadn’t been certified yet councilor Warren had asked him when it was presented? Kufflinks answered sometime before Rachel went on vacation?

There Seems to be the practice fin the mayors administration always some kind of a glitch especially with the finance part of it. Kudos to Warren for trying to get some information from these clowns.

Marchetti will have a long hard road ahead of him.

Why isn’t Egypt opening its border to their fellow Muslims ? Why did Gazans elect Hamas to govern? Why don’t Gazans work with Israel to root out Hamas? Israel is NOT going to allow Hamas to exist on their border period.

The Republicans are trying to stop massive aid to Ukraine and Israel by refusing to give the aid unless we have control over our borders. By the arguments people are making on this board, that would make sense. Everybody is expecting terror attacks including our FBI Director so the logical thing is to close our borders and not make it easier for these attacks to happen. America no longer operates on logic, however, so the Republican plan may fail. Nobody mentions the human misery in Ukraine which America is also funding.

Where do Palestinians reside today?
Between 2.1 and 3.24 million of the diaspora population live as refugees in neighboring Jordan; over 1 million live between Syria and Lebanon, and about 750,000 live in Saudi Arabia, with Chile holding the largest Palestinian diaspora concentration (around half a million) outside of the Arab world.

And why is that? Which would seem to be more important to Pittsfield? A new 40 million dollar ball park no one gives a shit about or the replacement of a police department building everyone agrees is outdated and not user friendly?

So why was this so important when tyer came in, and not so important now? Would love to know the backroom convo on this subject?

Can we put this on a referendum for the taxpayers? Which would you prefer? A new police station that would benefit everyone or a ball park that will benefit contractors and special interests?

So in the bucolic environs of Pittsfield I see Sheriff dept guards posted at Greylock bank in Allendale area. And that started even before the armed bank robbery of last week in a near NBT bank. Well somebody sure seems concerned about the rise in violent crime don’t they?

By the way, thought the police were looking for help in the armed bank robbery but did anyone see even the remotest description of the perp? Were da cameras busted that day? Can’t help if we don’t know what we are looking for.

Our own Massachusetts Democrat Rep. Aryanna Presley is bringing back the ridiculous idea of allowing 16 year old kids to vote and prisoners too. Aryanna knows the kids are so indoctrinated by the left that they will keep the leftists in power. These are the same geniuses who told us that people under 21 can’t be held responsible for violent crimes because their brains aren’t full formed, but voting is fine since apparently that doesn’t require any brainpower since the young are already instructed on how they should vote. Taking advantage of nursing home patients isn’t enough. The radicals now need kids and prisoners to vote.

Suggesting that 16 years should be able to vote suggests to me that this woman is not suited for her job and should not be taken seriously going forward. What she should be promoting is that all 16 year olds are taught how to use Narcan and to show a little respect for others.

There are 535 Members of U.S. Congress. There are 12,500 registered lobbyists in the Swamp in 2023. That equals over 23 greed-balls for every 1 career corrupt-ball. I wonder who really runs the U.S. Congress? If it goes by the number of lobbyists, then it is K Street instead of Capitol Hill.

Then there is the Beacon Hill Statehouse in Boston whereby some registered lobbyists earn 7-figure salaries, while many other greed-balls earn 6-figures.

Greedy lobbyist Dan Bosley is a former corrupt career politician who cashing in at the public trough. Greed-ball Dan Bosley likes to write letters and op-eds praising PAC Man Richie Neal (D-K Street).

Sarcasm: I am sure that the Founding Fathers envisioned greedy lobbyists using Pay to Play to legally bribe the career politicians for life in the state and federal government.

I’ll post the link from the BE today in the Letters to the Editor section.

The buffoon who wrote this letter, Richard Daly Sr, states in order “to save democracy,” the Uniparty needs to come together and elect a President/VP team of: (1) Liz Cheney and Bath House Barry, or (2) 33,000 scrubbed emails Hillary and Michael Steele. He also tossed in the Ayatollah John Kerry in the mix too.

If the D’s idea of “saving democracy,” includes: the current crushing inflation, sky high rent, groceries, gas prices, unaffordable mortgages, suppressing free speech, every school shooter ID’s as a D, KICKING US VETS OUT OF HOUSING FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS, teaching children gay porn in elementary public schools, FIB Agents targeting white Christians and Parents who questioned elected school board members, FEDSURRECTION, and an open border, I’ll cast my vote to give up their idea of “democracy.”

Massachusetts want everyone in the state to use expensive electricity to heat their homes. The elites will have no problem affording it. The school personnel will survive with their big salary increases, but everyone else will freeze because electricity is unaffordable for most people. The Mass. bigwigs admit it will leave many out in the cold, but they don’t have a solution. Can you believe the arrogance of these people? Add to that the electricity they want vehicles to run on, a plan which is failing, and you can see why so many would be on public transportation. There isn’t enough electricity for their insane plans which leaves us with California rolling blackouts. The Californication of America is what these elites are pushing.

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR

December 7, 2023 | Washington; and Tel Aviv, Israel
As the war in Gaza enters its third month, the Biden administration is toughening its demands on Israel regarding the conduct of the war – an acknowledgment at least in part of shifting U.S. public opinion and of increasingly agitated Arab allies.
In response, Israel is pledging to carry out its campaign in the southern Gaza Strip with greater precision and care for limiting civilian casualties than it did in the north. The war there in recent weeks has caused widespread devastation and inflicted a high civilian toll among Palestinians.
