Donald Trump has given the greenlight to Benjamin Netanyahu’s theft of more Palestinian land as if the ill-mannered American owns it. Informed observers have warned of dire consequences.
Israel’s killing of Palestinians has become so routine that it hardly evokes a yawn. 300 unarmed Palestinian protesters have been killed and another 30,000 or more injured in Gaza since March 2018, but the Zionists intensified attacks on Gaza with missiles and bombs that killed another 34 and injured 110 others in two days last month.
Hindu fascism and its attendant horrors are found in many other parts of the world. We can name a host of other fascists in power: Trump, Netanyahu, Bin Salman and their ilk. The world is a more dangerous place with their grubby hands on the levers of power.
Benjamin Netanyahu is a nasty creature and a compulsive liar. In order to enhance his chances of successes at the poll, he is prepared to kill not only people in other countries but also his own. Such are the ways of criminal politicians!
Violent brutality often seen on cinema screens as well as TV and online broadcasts - a hallmark of Hollywood, always ends with a sigh of relief in the knowledge that fiction triumphed over reality.
That the US was forced to choose drab Warsaw in the middle of winter to hold an anti-Iran hate fest that few major European powers attended merely exposed US isolation.

Among the Arabian regimes, Oman’s was considered to be following a somewhat sensible policy until the Zionist prime minister was seen hobnobbing with the ruler of Oman, in clear betrayal of the Palestinians!
Why would the rulers of Oman welcome the war criminal Benyamin Netanyahu in their midst?
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel refused to take a call from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because of the latter’s obnoxious behavior.
Jewish life flourishes in pluralistic societies within which difference is not a “problem” to be resolved, but a fact to be celebrated. The alliance of right-wing Zionists and the alt-right should not be viewed as an abnormality, but the meeting of quite compatible outlooks that assert — each in their own way—that the world will only be secure once we all retreat to our various plots of ancestral land. Nationalist thinking of this sort wrought more than its fair share of damage during the twentieth century. Let’s not enact a repeat performance in the twenty-first.
Al Jazeera tries to project itself as the voice of the Arab street but in reality it is an echo chamber for Western propaganda.
The Zionists not only want to occupy the whole of Palestine but their special target is al Masjid al Aqsa, the holy sanctuary. They have intensified their attacks in recent weeks as Muslim attention is diverted elsewhere.1
