And they just keep piling it on/digging that hole: US threatens to cut UNRWA funding unless Palestinians 'come back to the negotiating table' | Middle East Eye

That is: cut funding for Palestinian refugees in Gaza and the West Bank (including Palestinian East Jerusalem), Lebanon, Jordan and Syria unless the Palestinians are prepared to give up Jerusalem and whatever else the US feels like giving away. So we'll starve tens of thousands of people unless you agree to Apartheid.

Let me introduce Daniel Pipes and the Middle East Forum into the discussion. I have no idea if he's as influential as he claims to be, but I have been following him for a while now and his shit is frightening and, in the context of Trump's Whitehouse, worryingly ascendent.

Achieving Peace Through Israeli Victory :: Daniel Pipes

From the linkI'd like to suggest a new paradigm, putting the negotiating one completely to the side. It rejects the old idea of bringing Israelis and Palestinians together and, basically, the Israelis trying, or the Americans pushing the Israelis, to accommodate the Palestinians ...

I would like to see an Israeli victory and a Palestinian defeat. The Middle East Forum calls this the Israel Victory Project.

[...]I'm pleased to report that we now have 32 members of the House, a bipartisan group co-chaired by Ron DeSantis of Florida (who I'm sorry to note has left the room), Bill Johnson of Ohio, and Juan Vargas of California, and we're building all the time. We are building the political base. We now have 16 members in the Knesset Israel Victory Caucus coming from all six Zionist parties, opposition and government, every party but Meretz, the Arab Joint List and the Haredim. At the same time, we're also building an intellectual base, working with allies in think tanks, sponsoring research: what precisely does victory mean? How is it to be effected? What are the implications?

[...]And by the way, it's in that context that we can move the embassy to Jerusalem. So long as it's merely a matter of bureaucratic neat-keeping, because all our embassies are in capitals and this one isn't, it's not going to happen, will never happen. But once it's put into the context of sending a signal to the Palestinians that we are standing with Israel and that they should forget trying to break this bond, then moving the embassy to Jerusalem will send a message, be meaningful, and be worth the trouble.

"We write in support of Lorde, who made public her decision not to perform in Israel and has now been branded a 'bigot’ in a full page advertisement in the Washington Post," the letter said.
"We deplore the bullying tactics being used to defend injustice against Palestinians and to suppress an artist's freedom of conscience. We support Lorde's right to take a stand," it added.

News Re: Trumphole starts another fucking fire

Credibility below zero...

Quote:
Rock is known for criticizing police brutality and racism in the U.S. In fact, during his Tel Aviv show he joked about the issue saying: "You would think occasionally the cops would shoot a white kid, just to make it look good."

This particular joke resonates as Palestinian children are not only shot, but also detained and impisioned by Israeli occupation forces. Israeli human rights organization B'Tselem estimates that over 300 Palestinian children are held in Israeli prison, where they sustain physical and verbal abuse that amounts to torture. In many cases they are held without being charged.
Not just that but US police department get Israeli training which explains why they treat people like an occupied population.
