  1. My guess is Israel is trying to overthrow Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, so they intentionally leaked the secret meeting in Italy to damage him politically.

    From Wikipedia … “he was alleged to be involved in “corruption, money laundering, financing of the Muslim Brotherhood, vote buying” … and he is “de facto backed by the governments of Turkey, Qatar, Algeria, Pakistan and Palestine”.

    This comes after the United States has been publicly criticizing Israel for its behavior, which is rare for the Biden Administration.

    So Israel again is saying F U to the world, we will do it our way, you can’t stop us, a common pattern for Israel since its birth.

  2. I thought the mentioned roads in the west bank were limited to Israelis in general, not just jews? Big difference between limiting access to non citizens rather than on ethnic basis.

    1. @ David: If you believe that indigenous Palestinians living in the West Bank should not have access to Jewish roads there, then I suppose you are right. But I believe that someone living in a place should have access to everything that exists there; and that limiting access by “ethnic basis” (whatever that means) is apartheid. And that apartheid violates international law.

      Further, there are hundreds of checkpoints leading into the West Bank at which all vehicles must stop, answer questions, provide ID, and allow searches. At such checkpoints, Israeli Palestinian citizens could be refused entry or delayed interminably. And that upsets the meaningless distinction you’ve posited.
