The Israeli regime's war on hospitals and civilians resumes.
The regime and its supporters will claim that it's at war with Hamas and terrorists, but the reality is that it is at war with international law and the multipolar future that BRICS+ represents.

Saw a human rights expert being 'interviewed' over his organization's statements that 'Israel is committing genocide in Gaza' and, after he laid out exactly how that statement is completely justified, he was asked to explain why the claims about Hamas being committed to 'wiping out all Jews' didn't get condemnation. And rather than debunking the claim, he simply cited the three ways that the supposed statement didn't qualify.

JB, every major international human rights organization has found the evidence of the Israeli regime deliberately targeting civilians in their other attacks to be overwhelming. What evidence do you have that this time is any different?

When Nat Turner lead his bloody Rebellion, there were those who couldn't understand that it's brutality was a pale imitation of the horrors slavery had inflicted on him and his fellow Rebels. And America is still struggling to get to a place where people acknowledge that.
And, as we can see, there are still people who refuse to acknowledge that the Hamas Rebellion was a pale imitation of the horrors the Israeli regime has, and continues to, inflict on the majority of its legal population, the Refugees, and their hosts in Gaza and beyond.

When Israeli regime 'civilians' kill Palestinian civilians, it rarely rates a news story, and isn't called terrorism, and the US government rarely condemns it.
And even if it does rate a news story, it's 'claimed' not 'said', the number of 'attacks' by Palestinians in the past week/month/year is mentioned.

It's going to be interesting how historians judge him by 2050, when power has shifted and doing bad things to expand and extend the power of the White Bloc becomes seen in the same light doing bad things to expand and extend the power of the Soviet Bloc have been for decades.

It should be noted that since the Hamas Rebellion, the Israeli regime has kidnapped more Palestinian hostages than it has been forced to release.

Those caught participating in the Crime Against Humanity (population displacement) aren't 'hostages' in any meaningful sense. Those seized by an occupying power, even the ones that have been 'tried' in a court system that is a violation of the Geneva Conventions are more deserving of the term 'hostages'.

The presence of Israel regime supporters marred the second day of antiracism/pro human rights protest marches in London, which accounts for the lower turnout despite the lower likelihood of capricious arrest.

So, Hamas continues to release the people it captured illegally present on land owned by people living in forced exile in Gaza and beyond, and the Israeli regime begrudgingly responds by releasing a few of the thousands of Palestinian hostages it has taken, before and after the Hamas Rebellion, and not so begrudgingly continues to kill Palestinians because they dared to walk on Palestinian soil as if they had rights.

Arresting Jewish protesters against the barbarity of the Israeli regime's attacks on civilians and hospitals is both antisemitic and Islamophobic.

Calling the Israeli regime a democracy is both antisemitic and islamophobic.

That even reporters chosen by the Israeli regime from media that drop any reporters who aren't willing to treat Israeli propaganda as credible, after being escorted through the devastation of the Israeli attack on Palestine to a damaged hospital surrounded by dead civilians, and presented with 'proof' (like a few pristine weapons and Palestinian language calendars) that the hospital was being used to shelter Hamas command centers are refusing to treat that as meaningful tells you exactly how gruesome what Israel is doing is.

The Israeli regime is at war with Hamas, and with Palestine, and with international law.
It is going to lose all three wars in the long run.

Did anyone with any sense expect the Israeli regime to stop committing war crimes and perpetrating the Crime Against Humanity defined in the ICSPCA?
Given that in the past, even when it agreed to those things, it was about as faithful to the agreement as Trump is to anything he's agreed to.

So, the invading Israeli regime's forces are attacking another functioning hospital...which is a violation of the Geneva Conventions.

It is interesting how disparaging of the democratically elected government of Turkiye the article is. Note that both the governing party and the opposition are very leery of the intentions of both Sweden and America to keep their commitments.
PS, as the largest army, and a strategically located country, and in most ways the White Bloc's interface with the majority of the world, even if there was a mechanism to ignore or expell Turkiye from NATO, doing so would cripple NATO and the White Bloc, and not just militarily

Of course, that these countries support the Israeli regime means their involvement complicates the process.

An illegal invader doesn't 'raid' the hospital they've attacked, turned into a mass morgue, filled with wounded orphaned children, and deprived of medicine, food, fuel, and power.
They ATTACK and attacking a functioning hospital in a war crime.

It is noteworthy that the information 'Gaza's Hamas run health authority' provides is trusted by the Red Cross, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, American universities, European universities, and the UN.
On the other hand, how many times have you seen Israeli regime claims disproven, revised and disproven again, revised again and again until they have no resemblance to the original claim, and then only treated as credible in media and politics of Israeli aligned countries.

Given that the ADL is now considering Jewish groups protesting against the Israeli regime's killing of civilians an Antisemitic act, and right wing governments (including the French one) adopted a standard that does the same thing, the notion that this march was antiracist in intent is like the notion that the soldiers of the American Confederacy were fighting for 'states rights'.

Believing an Israeli regime claim is like believing a Trump claim. Note that the only major human rights organization that doesn't state that the Israeli regime was perpetrating the Crime Against Humanity defined by the ICSPCA on January 1st is now considering Jewish groups calling for the Israeli regime to quit killing civilians to be Antisemitic.

There are those who were offended by the protesters holding two minutes of silence and calling for an armistice on armistice day (another term used in the UK for November 11)
Interestingly, they tend to be people who are fine with the war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the Israeli regime.

On the question of whether the legitimate government of Iran is able to access its own money in foreign banks or not, the answer is that it depends not on the American government official and unofficial positions, but on the positions of the governments where those banks are located. And as the balance of economic and political power shifts away from Washington and the 'World Bank' towards Beijing and the 'BRI Bank', those government's official and unofficial positions are increasingly fluid.
Whether that money is still officially 'frozen' isn't the relevant question. That the US has had to loosen its hold on Iranian assets both officially and unofficially against its will is what matters.

Those who support the violent oppression of Palestinians blame the violence on those who oppose it.
Their greatest fear was that they may face the same fate as those who supported the violent oppression of Bantus, but only because their arrogance blinded them to the possibility they could face the same fate as those who supported the violent oppression of Jews.
And a country who's population faced those willing to use WMDs on them and kept fighting for their freedom despite the horrors the oppressors brought to bear, who's children grew up visiting the graveyards of their parents friends and family who died in a decade of sacrifice and won, won't surrender to the threat of an oppressor to unleash a torrent of violence and the threat of the use of WMDs against them if they dare to intervene.
There's a Canadian folk song "Harris and the mare" who's message is that even those who abhor the use of violence can find themselves in a situation where failing to use violence is even more abhorrent. Iranians may see this as such a situation.

It would be more apt to say Turkiye's strained relationships with certain EU states have prompted them to disparage its democracy.
Despite the pretence, democracy is not something that depends on how the much the governments of US, UK, and France approve of your government, it is something that depends upon the approval of your population. And right now, the populations of the US, UK, and France are far more disapproving of their respective governments than the population of Turkiye disapproves of Erdogan.

Given how the Kiev regime, when it overthrew the democratically elected government of Ukraine, took control over command of the Ukrainian military, that many of the members were trapped in units and forced to attack eastern Ukrainians isn't surprising. Nor is it surprising that as soon as they gained their freedom from the Kiev regime, they wanted to help other Ukrainians also gain their freedom.
It also is no surprise that as their numbers increased, the Kiev regime (or at least its foreign backers) came up with a way to try and make it seem that it was Russia forcing reluctant Ukrainians to fight for it, rather than the regime itself.

Calling the Israeli regime what it is, and it's actions what they are on the rise, and those things are deemed to be antisemitic even though not doing those things are the actual antisemitic act.
Dismissing the internationally recognized as highly legitimate counts of dead, wounded, and civilians VS fighter because they come from an Islamic organization deemed to be a terrorist because they respond violently to Crimes Against Humanity being perpetrated on their population is Islamophobic, as is refusing to accept the legitimacy of democratically elected Muslim governments. That too is on the rise, given the full support they get from this President and his predecessor.
In reality, the rise in both leads back to the Islamophobia and Antisemitism coming from the Biden and Netanyahu.
