FROM THE TCI WIRE:

Isabele Debre (AP) reveals, "Israel’s military offensive has turned much of northern Gaza into an uninhabitable moonscape. Whole neighborhoods have been erased. Homes, schools and hospitals have been blasted by airstrikes and scorched by tank fire. Some buildings are still standing, but most are battered shells."  Kieron Monks (I NEWS) reports, "More than 40 per cent of the buildings in northern Gaza have been damaged or destroyed, according to a new study of satellite imagery by US researchers Jamon Van Den Hoek from Oregon State University and Corey Scher at the City University of New York. The UN gave a figure of 45 per cent of housing destroyed or damaged across the strip in less than six weeks. The rate of destruction is among the highest of any conflict since the Second World War."   




Currently, Nasser Hospital is under attack.  Yesterday, Amy Goodman (DEMOCRACY NOW!) noted, "In the city of Khan Younis, the Israeli army has forced hundreds of patients, staff and displaced Palestinians to evacuate Nasser Hospital, which has been under an Israeli siege for weeks. Israeli snipers killed at least three people at the hospital on Tuesday."  Today, Wafaa Shurafa and Bassem Mroue (AP) explain, " Israeli forces stormed the main hospital in southern Gaza on Thursday, hours after Israeli fire killed a patient and wounded six others inside the complex."  Two journalists at THE FINANCIAL TIMES OF LONDON manage to type, "During Israel’s retaliatory air, land and sea offensive in Gaza, which has killed more than 28,000 people, according to Palestinian officials, Israeli forces have targeted numerous hospitals, accusing Hamas of using medical facilities for military purposes."  If that's an attempt at context it's missing a phrase that would be "while denying they had attacked hospitals early in the assault."  Because that is what happened.

Grasp that.

An attack on a hospital is illegal.  It is against all rules of engagement.  And early on when the Israeli government was terrorizing Gaza and attacking hospitals, they denied it.  And the gullible and whorish press would try to prop up the denial.  But in a matter of weeks, the horrors have been so outrageous that the Israeli government doesn't even try to deny the assaults on hospitals anymore.  And the world is just in shock.  It's outrageous and people need to stand trial for it.

RTE notes, "Attacks on medical facilities in Gaza have caused particular concern throughout the conflict, including Israeli raids on hospitals in other cities, shelling in the vicinity of hospitals and the targeting of ambulances."  Per the BBC " the Israeli military had demolished the southern wall of the hospital complex and entered that way."  The Israeli government wants to destroy all of Gaza and that's obvious by what they've done.  If you're not getting how far from humanity these actions are, Kareem Khadder, Lauren Izso and CNN) report, "The news [of the assault] came after doctors and medical officials in southern Gaza said Israeli snipers had shot dead a number of people as they tried to flee the Nasser Medical Complex. An eyewitness to the shootings, who is a trauma surgeon at the hospital, said at least two people were killed by snipers on Tuesday, with more shot and injured." Multiple press reports are citing an unnamed trauma surgeon at the hospital who states one of the at least two killed was a 16-year-old boy.  Adela Suliman and Claire Parker (WASHINGTON POST) add, "Updates from the Gaza Health Ministry said Israeli troops were putting lives in danger by seeking the transfer of intensive care patients and by instructing employees to evacuate amid bombings. It said the emergency doctor was injured when a drone fired at the room in the surgery department on the third floor of the Nasser Medical Complex."  THE GUARDIAN notes:

Humanitarian chiefs stressed that states and especially Israel could not “offload” responsibility for the horrors unfolding in Gaza onto aid workers.

The Red Cross chief Mirjana Spoljaric told a Geneva briefing for diplomats on events in Gaza that their countries were responsible for ensuring the Geneva Conventions are upheld.

“It is not in your interest to offload (that) responsibility... onto humanitarian actors,” she said.

“If the way operations are conducted today limit our operational space to a minimum... we will not be able to resolve the problem,” she added. 



In a front-page editorial in the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano headlined “Stop the Carnage”, editorial director Andrea Tornielli challenged Israeli leaders on the ongoing Gaza attack.

Tornielli quoted a Rome-based Holocaust survivor, Edith Bruck, who has been highly critical of the Israeli government’s war, which she blames for the rise in anti-Semitic acts against Jews around the world.

“No one can define what is happening in the Strip as ‘collateral damage’ from the fight against terrorism,” Tornielli wrote. “The right of defence, the right of Israel to ensure justice for those responsible for the October massacre, cannot justify this carnage.”

FROM THE TCI WIRE:


Another candidate has suspended her campaign.




Marianne Williamson has suspended her campaign for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination and notes:

First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you don’t win:)…

I appreciate greatly all the incredible people who accompanied me on our political journey over the last ten months. While the level of our failure is obvious to all, a level of success is real nonetheless. We articulated deeper, more authentic truths than those regularly acknowledged by the political establishment. And I’m not only glad we did that; I’m proud of it. We spoke for those most ignored in America today and whose wounds are most in need of healing. I wish I could have reached them. I know we would have provided hope.

I will never be able to fully express my gratitude to those who supported the campaign - as donors, as volunteers, as team members, and more. I hope the blessings you have shown me will be reflected in your life many times over. There are memories of support and kindness that I will cherish going forward, carrying an emotional fragrance that will linger in my heart forever.

In the final analysis, I think the only real failure in life is that which we fail to learn from. I have learned so much already and I know that I will learn more. Processing this experience will be an ongoing journey and forgiveness will guide me as I move through it. I will not allow the mental torment of all the woulda shoulda couldas to tie me to the past, but rather I will keep my eye on the larger story. In ways I cannot yet see, none of this will have been in vain. There are hidden gifts that have only just begun to reveal themselves.

Among those gifts are seeds I know we dropped into the hearts of many - those who will in their own time, in their own way, carry our ideas forward. Although as of today we are suspending our campaign, our platform - with its deep dive into so many issues - will remain on Marianne2024.com. I hope future candidates will take what works for them, drinking from the well of information that we prepared. My team and I brought to the table some great ideas, and I will take pleasure when I see them live on in campaigns and candidates yet to be created.

I wish I could give a personal hug to every person who encouraged me on this journey. So many had faith and believed in what was possible. While we did not succeed at running a winning political campaign, I know in my heart we impacted the political ethers. As with every other aspect of my career over the last forty years, I know how ideas float through the air forming ever new designs. I will see and hear things in different situations and through different voices, and I will smile a small internal smile knowing in my heart where that came from.

I am wishing you all the love in the world, with a thanks more sincere than you can possibly imagine. May love yet prevail, in our hearts and in the world.


The list of potentials gets smaller and the list of real potentials -- real meaning, this isn't a deluded vanity campaign, gets tiny.  On the Republican side, it's coming down to Donald Trump (unless the courts do the right thing and bar him from running due to his violations of Article 3 and the 14th Amendment) and Nikki Haley.  On the Democratic Party side, it's now Joe Biden.  Joe visited NYC and, Brett Wilkins (COMMON DREAMS) reports, it was a visit that got attention:

  Around 100 Jewish American and allied activists were arrested in New York City Wednesday after they blocked President Joe Biden's motorcade route to protest U.S. complicity in Israel's genocidal war against the Palestinian people and to demand an immediate Gaza cease-fire.

The group Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) led the Upper East Side demonstration, during which activists sat down in the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 82nd Street, where the president was attending a nearby fundraiser.

"As Jewish New Yorkers we want to make crystal clear that President Biden is not welcome in our city while he continues to fund and arm the Israeli government's genocide of Palestinians in Gaza," saidJVP's Jay Saper. 




I know nothing about Claudia De la Cruz and Karina Garcia but they have the nomination for the Party for Socialism and Liberation (Claudia for president, Karina for vice president) which, in the past, has run real candidates.  The Green Party is in shambles and that's evidenced by the fact that Jill Stein trying to get the nomination.  Jill Stein is AGAIN trying to get the nomination.

One of the complaints from those anticipating a Donald and Joe match up has been the age issue.  

Jill's no spring chicken. 

She turns 74 this May.

She has no real accomplishments to speak of -- unless you consider her dropping her anti-vaccine stance when the press discovered it while she was running for office -- I believe that was in her failed Senate run and not during one of her disastrous attempts at the presidency.  Jill fights for what she stands for . . .  at least until she's expected to actually stand for it.

And, yes, we said "attempts at the presidency."

The Green Party is dead will be the announcement if, this summer, they announce Jill Stein as their candidate.

She was their failed candidate in 2012 -- one who refused to question Barack Obama's sending US troops back into Iraq even though Tim Arango had reported this for THE NEW YORK TIMES just before the presidential debates started.  Poor Jill, she had more important things than war or pointing out reality.  She needed to get a new hair do and she needed more photos of herself and she needed waste everyone's time.

She did that in 2016 again.

She's a disaster and something of an idiot.  It's gotten worse, her public speaking, so bad in fact that she might need to see a doctor.  

Does that sound like a party offering a real difference between the duopoly?

No.

A real difference would be the Green Party getting an actual candidate -- not an old nag or hag that they've run twice already and who is over 70s year old.  35.  That's the youngest you can be.  And yet do nothing Jill thinks her twice that age, failed ass needs to mislead the Green Party again.

Joe Biden should have put himself out to pasture.  No question.  But Greens, if you run a 74 year old failure, you don't have any room to scold any other parties.  She's failed twice.  She's led to the party into great debt with those failures.  She's done nothing but whine in the last years -- I only ate a dinner in Russia! -- and she's not an activist.  Her 'activism' most recently was trying to force Cornel West down the throat of the Green Party.  I don't think she realizes how hated that's made her.

She and others at the top of the Green Party, tried to steal the nomination for him.  And rank-and-file pushed back.  Cornel for any other failures, was smart enough to see what was happening and cease his campaign for the Green Party nomination.

That Cornel didn't grasp the process of the Green Party is not surprising.  He announced his pursuit of the presidency by announcing he was the candidate for the People's Party and then a week later, he wasn't.  Oops.  Turns out you actually do need to do some work to run for president and that includes checking out the party whose nomination you've accepted -- in fact, better to do that checking before you accept their nomination.

But Jill knew the process and she didn't just ignore it, she tried to break it and would have been able to if the rank-and-file hadn't pushed back so hard and said NO!  They weren't dropping their process of how people had to campaign for the party's presidential nomination and they weren't changing their schedule (again, it will be decided this summer at the party's convention).  

Then there's the whole Peter Daou thing.  This is not to trash Peter or even about Peter -- my remarks.  This is about the fact that Jill's told one conflicting story after another about Petere.  She's claimed this and she's claimed that.  If she can't even get her story straight about her 'friendship' with a political strategist, she needs to bow out.  Instead, she's using media attention to make it appear that she's the party's nominee.

The party has no nominee and won't until the summer convention.

If Jill is the nominee, we all need to wipe our hands clean of the Green Party and face reality that it is not trying to build the party and that it's just a bunch of egomaniacs at the top who need their egos stroked.


Did someone say Junior?

Yeah, Little Junior remains to do nothing.

He keeps pointing to his popularity polls.  Among the uneducated and likely non-voters, he does have some sort of appeal still.  He keeps pointing to his 'popularity' as his reason for running.

Running?

$306.


That's the cost for his campaign basically.  United Airlines can fly him from New Hampshire to Utah for $306.  

He's qualified for Utah's ballot and, since the end of last month he's claimed he's qualified for New Hampshire.  

In a dream world where he can win both states that would be what, ten electoral votes?

Just 260 more and he can be president.

Donald Trump says if he gets the nomination, he's not taking Junior on his ticket.

Junior dropped out of the race of the Democratic Party nomination.

He declared himself an independent making an independent run.

But no one told him that required work and our socialite just does not like to work.

So now he's flirting with the Libertarian Party as well as flirting with conducting fraud state by state.  Since he clearly can't meet the requirements for ballot access in the majority of the states as an independent candidate, his admitted plan currently is to start 'political parties' so he can meet that threshold instead.

However, it is fraud -- legal fraud -- to do what he's talking about.  The qualifications do not say 'create a fake political party.'  He can't meet the legal criteria to get on the ballot as the independent candidate ha has publicly announced himself so he wants to commit fraud state by state.  If he does that, I hope he's prosecuted to the full extent of the law and he should be.

FROM THE TCI WIRE:





Iraq’s prime minister said the U.S.-led military coalition that has been helping his country fight Islamic State militants is no longer needed, though he still wants strong ties with Washington.
“We believe the justifications for the international coalition have ended,” Prime Minister Mohammed al-Sudani told The Wall Street Journal, as the war in Gaza frays Iraqi relations with Washington.

Sudani didn’t set a deadline for the departure of the coalition, which was formed in 2014 to mentor and support Iraqi forces in regaining control of their country after Islamic State militants seized swaths of northern and western Iraq.

Nor did Sudani close the door to a role for U.S. troops advising Iraqi forces to remain in the country under a new bilateral relationship that he said should follow.

But in an interview Tuesday during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Sudani expressed broad dissatisfaction with American policy on the Gaza conflict. The West had turned a blind eye toward the plight of the Palestinians before Hamas’s Oct. 7 attack on Israel, he said, calling for increased pressure on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to end what he described as genocide.



So bring the US troops home.  They have a target on their backs right now and every time Joe Biden orders an attack on the Iraqi military (the militias became part of the official Iraqi military seven years ago), it puts the US troops on the ground there more at risk.

That's before you even factor in Gaza..  And the Iraqi people overwhelming reject the slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza.  That is the feeling around the world.  ALJAZEERA notes this morning:

Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, to show their support for Palestinians.

Al Jazeera’s Mohammed al-Attab, reporting from the scene of protests, said many in the crowd accused the US of supporting Israel’s war and promised to continue standing by their “brothers in Palestine”.

“They are now saying that, ‘We don’t care about your rage, we don’t care about whatever you do to us, we will continue our support and resilience with Palestinians until Israel stops its war on Palestine’,” he said.




Instead of demanding a cease-fire, Joe Biden has supported the slaughter and it has inflamed the Middle East.  Keith Jones (WSWS) observes:



Nuclear-armed Pakistan carried out air-launched rocket and drone-missile strikes on at least seven separate locations inside neighbouring Iran on Thursday, targeting what it said were bases of Balochi secessionist insurgents.

Iran, which vehemently condemned the strikes as a violation of its state sovereignty, said they had killed nine foreign nationals, including four children. The Baloch Liberation Army—which has waged a decades-long cross-border insurgency in Pakistani Balochistan, the country’s poorest, sparsely-populated westernmost province—confirmed that its forces had come under attack.

Although Pakistan did not say so explicitly, Thursday’s strikes were in part retaliation for an attack Iran had mounted some 48 hours before inside Pakistan.

According to Iran, its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) used missile and drone strikes to hit camps of the Jaish al-Adl, a Balochi armed secessionist group that has carried out attacks in Iran’s predominantly Balochi south-east. Following that action, Tehran emphasized it did not want to disrupt “brotherly” relations with Pakistan. But in a message clearly intended for Washington and Israel, Iran said that it reserves the right to take all necessary measures to defend itself.

The tit-for tat attacks between Iran and Pakistan add further combustion in a region already set ablaze by US imperialism and its allies, which are using Israel’s genocidal war on the Palestinians of Gaza to prepare and provoke a wider war with Iran.

On Wednesday and Thursday evenings, the US carried out its fourth and fifth waves of missile strikes on Yemen in a week, hitting what it claimed were Iranian-backed Houthi positions in disparate areas across the country. Speaking to reporters earlier Thursday, US President Joe Biden had vowed the US-British campaign of air strikes against the Houthis would continue.

With the support of broad sections of the Yemeni people, Houthi fighters have disrupted Red Sea shipping to press for an end to Israel’s onslaught on Gaza.

Also on Wednesday, the Biden administration labeled the Houthis a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist group,” opening the door to the imposition of sweeping sanctions. Aid groups immediately responded with warnings that the designation threatens to greatly intensify Yemen’s humanitarian crisis. As a result of the almost decade-long war the Saudi regime has waged on Yemen with US arms and logistical support, more than half of the country’s population—over 18 million people—need food and other assistance.

The European Union, meanwhile, is in the advanced planning stage for its own naval operation in the Red Sea that would support the US/British attacks on Yemen, while asserting its own role as a regional policeman. The German government is leading the charge in launching the mission, which it will support by dispatching a frigate to the region in early February, according to a report in the Welt am Sontag newspaper. Underscoring German imperialism’s major military expansion into the Middle East, Berlin is readying a shipment of 10,000 artillery shells to back Israel’s genocide in Gaza.

Emboldened by the to-the-hilt support Israel is receiving from the North American and European imperialist powers, Israel’s fascist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu baldly reasserted his goal of a Greater Israel in perpetuity Thursday, saying his government would never agree to ceding sovereignty over any part of the West Bank.   


Yes, Netanyahu does not believe in peace or in a two-state solution or anything but expelling Palestinians from their own lands.  AP reported yesterday:


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday he has told the United States that he opposes the establishment of a Palestinian state as part of any postwar scenario, underscoring the deep divisions between the close allies three months into Israel’s assault on Gaza aiming to eliminate its Hamas rulers.

The U.S. has called on Israel to scale back its offensive and said that the establishment of a Palestinian state should be part of the “day after.”

But in a nationally broadcast news conference, Netanyahu vowed to press ahead with the offensive until Israel realizes a “decisive victory over Hamas.” He also rejected the idea of Palestinian statehood. He said he had relayed his positions to the Americans.

“In any future arrangement … Israel needs security control all territory west of the Jordan,” Netanyahu told a nationally broadcast news conference. “This collides with the idea of sovereignty. What can you do?”

“The prime minister needs to be capable of saying no to our friends,” he added.



  Following Netanyahu's comments, U.S. State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said on Thursday that "there is no way to solve [the region's] long-term challenges to provide lasting security and there is no way to solve the short-term challenges of rebuilding Gaza and establishing governance in Gaza and providing security for Gaza without the establishment of a Palestinian state."

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres responded to Netanyahu's comments in a statement reiterating his stance that "the only way to stem the suffering" in the region is "an immediate humanitarian cease-fire in Gaza and a process that leads to sustained peace for Israelis and Palestinians, based on a two-state solution."

Unnamed sources have told reporters that U.S. frustration with Netanyahu's far-right government has been increasing along with the casualty count in Gaza—which Palestinian officials and international groups say is over 100,000, mostly innocent men, women, and children.

President Joe Biden has accused Israel of "indiscriminate bombing" of civilians in Gaza but continues to back Netanyahu's policy unconditionally and the U.S. has supplied Israel with billions of dollars in military aid and diplomatic support at the United Nations and beyond.


Gaza remains under assault.  Binoy Kampmark (DISSIDENT VOICE) points out, "Bloodletting as form; murder as fashion.  The ongoing campaign in Gaza by Israel’s Defence Forces continues without stalling and restriction.  But the burgeoning number of corpses is starting to become a challenge for the propaganda outlets:  How to justify it?  Fortunately for Israel, the United States, its unqualified defender, is happy to provide cover for murder covered in the sheath of self-defence."   CNN has explained, "The Gaza Strip is 'the most dangerous place' in the world to be a child, according to the executive director of the United Nations Children's Fund."  ABC NEWS quotes UNICEF's December 9th statement, ""The Gaza Strip is the most dangerous place in the world to be a child. Scores of children are reportedly being killed and injured on a daily basis. Entire neighborhoods, where children used to play and go to school have been turned into stacks of rubble, with no life in them."  NBC NEWS notes, "Strong majorities of all voters in the U.S. disapprove of President Joe Biden’s handling of foreign policy and the Israel-Hamas war, according to the latest national NBC News poll. The erosion is most pronounced among Democrats, a majority of whom believe Israel has gone too far in its military action in Gaza."  The slaughter continues.  It has displaced over 1 million people per the US Congressional Research Service.  Jessica Corbett (COMMON DREAMS) points out, "Academics and legal experts around the world, including Holocaust scholars, have condemned the six-week Israeli assault of Gaza as genocide."   The death toll of Palestinians in Gaza is grows higher and higher. YENI SAFAK notes, "The Palestinian death toll from the ongoing Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip since Oct. 7 has climbed to 24,762, the Health Ministry in the territory said Friday.  In a statement, the ministry added that 62,108 other people had been injured in the offensive."  ALJAZEERA notes, "The number of Palestinians killed since the start of Israel’s attacks on October 7 has risen to 24,285, Gaza’s health ministry says. At least 61,154 others have been wounded."   In addition to the dead and the injured, there are the missing.  AP notes, "About 4,000 people are reported missing."  And the area itself?  Isabele Debre (AP) reveals, "Israel’s military offensive has turned much of northern Gaza into an uninhabitable moonscape. Whole neighborhoods have been erased. Homes, schools and hospitals have been blasted by airstrikes and scorched by tank fire. Some buildings are still standing, but most are battered shells."  Kieron Monks (I NEWS) reports, "More than 40 per cent of the buildings in northern Gaza have been damaged or destroyed, according to a new study of satellite imagery by US researchers Jamon Van Den Hoek from Oregon State University and Corey Scher at the City University of New York. The UN gave a figure of 45 per cent of housing destroyed or damaged across the strip in less than six weeks. The rate of destruction is among the highest of any conflict since the Second World War."  Max Butterworth (NBC NEWS) adds, "Satellite images captured by Maxar Technologies on Sunday reveal three of the main hospitals in Gaza from above, surrounded by the rubble of destroyed buildings after weeks of intense bombing in the region by Israeli forces."
