  1. Doesn’t really change the big picture, but Adnan was not (this time) in administrative detention, but rather imprisoned awaiting trial after indictment and refused bail. His trial date was delayed because of the hunger strike.

  2. Trail of Tears …

    15th May 2023 – NAKBA 75th anniversary

    Talking sovereignty – established borders – UN Charters … except for the Jewish State of Israel, the last U.S. ally in the Middle East. Bullying partners, abusers of human rights. In an open society nowhere to hide beyond manipulation of news and “modern” statecraft. AI and Deep Fake a new opportunity in the digital age.

    US and UK the evil empires of colonizers, racism and eradication indigenous peoples.

  3. “two state solution” ? that dead dog still hunts? Is two states possible in the real world? It’s tantamount to an insult and another show of washed of hands in the half century plus situation. No news that they, including the Arab governments, have abandoned the Palestinians, catering to the Israeli extreme right wing. What is coming from Israeli’s themselves other than clamor for military protection?
    All this adds to the need the Palestinian resistance has to be feeling to continue attacking.

  4. Regardless of what you claim here, both the U.S. and the U.K. are firm proponents of Western hegemony. As such, the reason they opposed this resolution was that the Palestinians are one of the pet causes of the anti-Western bloc (and Palestinians, themselves are noted proponents anti-Western hegemony,) and thus enemies to the U.S. and U,K.

    Every sovereign state has goals and self-interests. Someone else’s morals do not override these considerations. Other bodies who ignore fundamentals of geopolitical interests are simply going to find their causes to be frustrated, because what they offer to the U.S. in particular (moral rationales) are not, in any way, valuable to the U.S.

  5. Richard Silverstein said:

    “an Israeli security source confirmed that his agency knew there were women and children in the homes of resistance leaders it assassinated. It did nothing to mitigate the damage or avoid killing civilians. On the contrary, it deliberately murdered them. This is a flagrant war crime, ”

    Let’s see what the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the America have to say.

    “Joint force targeting during such situations is driven by the principle of proportionality, so that otherwise lawful targets involuntarily shielded with protected civilians may be attacked, and the protected civilians may be considered as collateral damage, provided that the collateral damage is not excessive compared to the concrete and direct military advantage anticipated by the attack.”


    Otherwise protected civilians, can be killed, when they are used as human shields by armed combatants.
    It comes down to proportionality.
    Israel called off the strike when there were too many civilians present and struck their targets when there were fewer civilians shielding the Islamic Jihad leadership.

    1. @ Barney Hill: You’re kidding right? You dredge up the rules of engagement of the US military, responsible for killing millions of civilians in countries around the world, as credible? Really. YOU’ve got to be kidding. You are permitted a single comment per thread.
