UK Zionists to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn: Get on your knees!

UK Zionists vs Corbyn

By Gilad Atzmon

In their response to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, the Jewish Leadership Council (JLC) and the Board of Deputies of British Jews (BDBJ) claim to “propose an agenda of actions for discussion” between the Labour Party and those who claim to “represent” British Jews.

Ode to self-defamation

In practice, the two Zionist institutions have managed to produce one of the most disgusting documents in modern Jewish history. It is little more than an ode to the self-defamation of its own authors and to the community they claim to “represent”. It is rude, authoritarian and disrespectful to the democratically elected leader of Europe’s biggest party.

When you read some of the extracts below, remember that despite BDBJ and the JLC claims to “represent” British Jewry, these two organisations managed to pull just 1,500 members of their community into their “Enough is Enough” anti-Corbyn demonstration earlier this week. We are talking about 0.5 per cent of British Jewry.

The BDBJ-JLC authoritarian document outlines a set of humiliating conditions for Corbyn to meet. The text proves how detached these Jewish institutions are from British values specifically, and the Western ethos in general. In fact, their vision of the political arena is Orwellian in nature and tyrannical in practice.

Apparently, to meet the demands of these self-appointed “Jewish leaders, Corbyn must appoint a watchdog that will take care of the so called “anti-Semites” in his party and, of course, under the supervision of these two ardent Zionist bodies. He must also meet a strict time-frame defined by Judea.

Outstanding and future cases [of alleged “anti-Semitism”] are to be brought to a swift conclusion under a fixed timescale. An independent, mutually-agreed-upon ombudsman should be appointed to oversee performance, reporting to the party as well as to the Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership Council.

Talmudic excommunication

Consistent with the spirit of Talmudic herem, or excommunication, and totally in contradiction to notions of British openness and Western tolerance, these Jewish institutions insist that “MPs, councillors and other party members should not share platforms with people who have been suspended or expelled for anti-Semitism and CLPs [Constituency Labour Parties] should not provide them with a platform”.

The Jewish institutions also suggest how to penalise the sinners. “Anybody doing so should, themselves, be suspended from membership; in the case of MPs, they should lose the party whip.”

Maybe someone should make the effort to explain to the Jewish leaders that the Labour Party is an established political institution. It is not a ghetto, I mean, not as yet.

The Jewish bodies insist on dominating the language as well as boundaries of political discussion. Criticism of Israel should be completely restricted. The words “Zio” and “Zionist” as terms of abuse should be eradicated.

I actually believe that if the BDBJ and JLC truly wanted “Zionist” to not be used as a “term of abuse”, they should simply stop abusing Corbyn in the name of Zion as their first step forward.

“Good Jews” and “bad Jews” – according to Zios

The British Jewish “leaders” clearly know how to distinguish between the “good Jews” and the bad ones. Corbyn is told to “engage with the Jewish community via its main “representative” groups, and not through fringe organisations who wish to obstruct the party’s efforts to tackle anti-Semitism”.

I wonder, how exactly the BDBJ or the JLC are “representatives” of British Jews. When were they elected and by whom? And if these two organisations are “representative of British Jews”, how is it that they so selectively call upon Labour to ignore the voice of Jewish collectives with which they don’t agree?

The Jewish institutions talk at Corbyn as if he is a schoolboy. “These changes must be sustained and enduring.” Corbyn had better quickly meet the Zionist demands before a meeting with The Lobby can materialise. “We firmly believe that this must happen urgently, and certainly before we meet.”

The BDBJ and the JLC express hope in starting a process of “constructive anti-racist” work within the Labour Party.

Talking of racism, we should better hear from both the BDBJ and the JLC how many Muslims and Blacks are members of their executive boards. I ask because, unlike those “Jews-only” institutions, the Labour Party is actually a multi-ethnic and multi-racial political body.

If Jewish institutions want to counter racism, they are more than welcome to do so. The racist “Jewish State” is where they should start.

What is behind the latest Zionist onslaught against UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn?

Zionist onslaught against Corbyn

By Gilad Atzmon

Jewish power, as I define it, is the power to suppress criticism of Jewish power.

For the past few days people in Britain have been shown a spectacular display of that power and the manner in which it is mobilised. Without any attempt to hide their behaviour, a bunch of Jewish leaders have chosen to slander Europe’s biggest political party and its popular leader in the name of “Jewish sensitivities”.

This blitz attack was sparked by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s reaction to a mural back in 2012. The mural was painted by US street artist Kalen Ockerman. Apparently, at the time Corbyn defended the public display of the painting on the grounds of freedom of speech.

The Labour leader was heavily criticised by Jewish institutions for supporting a mural “depicting Jewish bankers playing Monopoly on the backs of the poor”. The inept British media didn’t do their homework and failed to actually examine the mural, but instead immediately delved into the hookedness of the noses of those alleged Jewish bankers.

Kalen Ockerman mural depicting, from left to right, Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Aleister Crowley, Carnegie and Warburg

Kalen Ockerman mural depicting, from left to right, Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Aleister Crowley, Carnegie and Warburg

Embarrassingly for them, Ockerman has come forward and identified the men he depicted in the mural. They are from left to right, “Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Aleister Crowley, Carnegie and Warburg”. Of the six men, only Rothschild and Warburg were Jewish. In fact, Aleister Crowley was noted for his anti-Semitic views. The take home message for the BBC and its like is that maybe capitalists of all races share similarly shaped noses.

I am left wondering if the British Zionist league was offended by the mural because it is they, the Zionists, who see the capitalist as the Jew and vice-versa. After all, Labour Zionism began as an avowed attempt to liberate diaspora Jews of parasitic capitalist traits. Zionism promised to cleanse the Jew of gluttony by means of a “homecoming”.

Zionists do not like Ken Livingstone. This is understandable. The man is a legendary icon of ethical thinking.

On 26 March 1,500 British Jews took to the streets outside Parliament. They protested against Corbyn’s alleged “systematic failure to deal with anti-Semitism”.

If you wonder what “systematic anti-Semitsm” means, the Jewish Chronicleprovides the answer. In his speech at the protest, Jonathan Arkush, the leader of the ardent Zionist Board of Deputies of British Jews, cited Labour’s alleged failure to take proper action on the claims of anti-Semitism against former London mayor Ken Livingstone and other Labour Party members.

Zionists do not like Ken Livingstone. This is understandable. The man is a legendary icon of ethical thinking. Despite their protests, it is still not easy for the Labour Party to expel one of its legends simply for telling the truth about Hitler’s collaboration with Zionism. Maybe Arkush should just give it more time.

Arkush told the crowd that the “the Labour Party must go back to being the enemy of racists – not the refuge”. Of course, Corbyn doesn’t have a drop of racism in his entire body, but maybe Jonathan Arkush can meet his own standards and tell us how many Blacks or Muslims are members of his own Jews-only Board of Deputies of British Jews.

The Jewish Leadership Council’s chair, Jonathan Goldstein, said that Corbyn had become the “figurehead for an anti-Semitic political culture based upon obsessive hatred of Israel, conspiracy theories and fake news”.

It is clear why some Jews are upset by Corbyn. The Labour leader treats the Jews as ordinary people. He fails to respect their chosenness and ignores their sense of exceptionalism.

Maybe the Jewish community leader could try to remember that obsession with justice is not a bad thing and also that interfering with freedom of speech can easily backfire.

It is clear why some Jews are upset by Corbyn. The Labour leader treats the Jews as ordinary people. He fails to respect their chosenness and ignores their sense of exceptionalism. Perhaps he believes that Jewish politics, like all other politics, ought to be subject to criticism. And now it is clear that Corbyn’s approach to Jewish politics is not acceptable to Britain’s Zionist Jewish establishment.

MP John Mann who has operated as a Zionist mouthpiece within the Labour Party for more than a while, bemoaned to the Jewish gathering about his Labour comrades, saying “Some of them glory in being called anti-Zionists – racists that is the word for them.”

Does Mann think that opposing a political movement is “racism”? Is opposition to Britain or the USA, or even North Korea, also to be castigated as racism? And then, in an uber-Orwellian manner, Mann added: “We have to drive these people [the anti Zionists] out of the Labour Party.”

Maidenhead Synagogue Rabbi Dr Jonathan Romain told the Jewish Chroniclethat this “anti-Semitism crisis” was Corbyn’s “Watergate moment”. I suggest the rabbi learn some Jewish history. This tsunami of Jewish self-love and empowerment could turn into a total disaster as it has time after time in the past.

The British Jewish leadership is panicking. It has declared open war against a mainstream British political party. This is far from a reasonable move and, if it is intended to oppose anti-Semitsm, its effect will inevitably be the opposite. Maybe gestalt psychology offers us the tools to understand such silly behaviour. Jewish history teaches us that attitudes toward Jews resemble a gestalt switch. Thus, for instance, once you see Israel for what it is you just can’t un-see it. Once you grasp that the Jewish State is a racist, oppressive force no one will be able to uproot that perception in you. Jewish Zionists do face a growing wall of resentment. Instead of dealing with it by means of self reflection, they repeat Israel’s mistake and adopt the most oppressive, authoritarian agenda. They are desperately trying to turn Britain into an Orwellian dystopia.

Left open is the question of how it is possible that the Jewish elite, despite its sophistication and education, never learn from the Jewish past. How is it possible that Jews keep repeating the same mistake time after time? I guess one possible answer is that Jewishness (יהודיות) is a form of severe blindness – and that this may be the dark side of chosenness.

UK’s Jewish Chronicle racially vets Labour leader Corbyn for Jewish genes

Hitler versus Jewish Chronicle

Gilad Atzmon writes:

Jews often complain that Adolf Hitler looked into their blood, dug into their family history, tracing Jewish genes sometimes even two or three generations back.

I guess The Jewish Chronicle is no different, except that it is far more thorough.

The uniquely horrid British Jewish outlet decided to look into Jeremy Corbyn’s genetic “kosher credentials”, publishing a piece under the headline: Sorry to disappoint you, Mr Corbyn, but there’s just no trace of your Jewish roots”.

Recently, in an attempt to appease British Jewry, the new Labour Party leader said he believed he had some Jewish element in the family, probably from Germany.

The Jewish Chronicle refutes Corbyn’s claim: “Jeremy Corbyn has had his claims of Jewish ancestry rejected by a leading genealogist,” it reported. Doreen Berger, a founder of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain, said she had conducted extensive research into Mr Corbyn’s ancestors and found no evidence to back up his claim.

While the Nazis went just a few generations back, Ms Berger, the local merchant of Jewish racial purity, “went back as far as 1837 in the civil records”. She confirms: “I couldn’t find anything at all.”

However, I am willing to make a sacrifice to save the situation for our new Labour leader. I have some notorious Jewish genes that I would love to get rid of. I am related to both war criminal Tzipi Livini and 9/11’s Menachem Atzmon. I am told that my Sephardic roots are in the same bloodline as Maimonides.

If Jeremy Corbyn is desperate to possess some Jewish genes, he is welcome to have mine. I would be delighted to meet Jeremy at Ms Berger’s koshergenetic laboratory and do a Jewish gene swap.

The sooner the better.

UK: Zionist Labour Party treats Palestinian supporters as mentally ill

By Gilad Atzmon

If you need further evidence that Britain’s Labour Party is a dark political force that doesn’t deserve the light of day, the following will supply the confirmation you need.

Marianne Northam, 74, joined the Labour Party so she could cast a vote in favour of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership as she believed him to be “a man with integrity and principles”.

As a true humanist of leftist orientation, Northam opposes bankers and is disgusted by Israel’s institutional racism and barbarism. It seems that such political inclinations are no longer welcome in Corbyn’s Labour Party. Northam was informed by the party that she was suspended and subject to investigation. She was warned not to share “the information she received from the party identifying the name of the person who has made the complaint against her, any witnesses, the allegations and the names of party staff dealing with the matter.” She was threatened that if she failed to follow their instructions, “the party reserves the right to take action to protect confidentiality, and you may be liable to disciplinary action for breach of the party’s rules”.

In the official letter that the party sends to its hundreds of suspended members, it advises the member to contact their GP to seek help for their mental condition. “You can contact your GP who can help you access support for your mental health and wellbeing,” the letter says. As if opposing Israel, Jewish politics or bankers is a matter of mental illness! And if you do not want to have the National Health Service involved, our “opposition” party provides an alternative: “The Samaritans are available 24/7. They offer a safe place for anyone to talk any time they like, in their own way – about whatever’s getting to them. Telephone 116 123.

For those who do not know, the Samaritans is a registered charity aimed at providing emotional support to anyone in emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland, often through their telephone helpline.

Let us examine what Northam did that earned her both a suspension from the Labour Partly and the “need” for the support of mental health specialists.

The Labour Party questioned Northam about some Facebook postings.

I watched the video. It is critical of one banking family and its vast influence. The video doesn’t refer to the Rothschilds as Jews or Semites. It produces an argument that deserves attention, discussion and maybe refutation. But this is hardly the approach taken by our so-called “opposition”. Corbyn’s Labour is against all bankers except one specific family of oligarchs.

Here is what the Labour inquisitor wrote to Northam:

Do you agree with the sentiments expressed in this video?

Do you recognise that the Rothschilds/New World Order is an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory?

Labour is supposed to be against prejudice. Simply on the basis of the above question, Labour’s National Executive Committee board must be suspended from the Labour Party for prejudice in favour of one Jewish banking family that is apparently beyond criticism.

Watch Lord Rothschild discussing how his family created Israel and orchestrated the Balfour Declaration

Northam’s ultimate crime was being a Facebook friend of yours truly. It seems one wannabe musician named Steve Cooke was really upset by Northam circulating my writing as the following screenshot, provided by the Labour Party, reveals:

Let’s examine what are my “anti-Semitic” views.

Apparently, Northam posted to her Facebook page an article I wrote in 2013 titled,“Holocaust Day backfired”. Labour’s inquisitor interrogates Northam as follows:

Do you agree with the comment in this article, “In the context of the Holocaust Memorial Day, the verdict is clear – the Israelis learned something in Auschwitz, but apparently not the most obvious ethical lesson.”

Do you agree with the comment in the article, “I guess that those British Jews who came to their senses probably realised by now that imposing a Holocaust Memorial Day on the British people was a grave mistake. However, I am delighted with this commemoration day. It is indeed a very special opportunity we should all cherish. Every year we will use this commemoration to remind Israel and its lobby what we think of the Jewish State, its politics and its repellent operators in our midst.”

In a recent paper I provided a detailed explanation titled “Why the “Left” is dead in the water”, explaining why the Labour Party has been reduced to an assortment of people with limited intellectual and mental abilities. A person with a working brain would see that my comment argues that Israelis and Jews should demand that the Jewish State implement the universal moral of the holocaust. I often raise the question of how it is possible that Israel ethnically cleansed Palestine just three years after the liberation of Auschwitz. I ask, how is it possible that the Jewish State put into place racist immigration laws just five years after the defeat of Nazi Germany? I argue that the Jews should be among the first to apply the lesson of the holocaust. Instead, the Jewish State is, unfortunately, the most racist country in the world. And it enjoys the institutional support of Jews around the world as well as Corbyn’s Labour.

The Labour inquisitor writes to Northam:

The Chakrabarti Report states:

“Excuse for, denial, approval or minimisation of the holocaust and attempts to blur responsibility for it, have no place in the Labour Party.” Do you think your posts are against the spirit of this?

“Racial or religious tropes and stereotypes about any group of people should have no place in our modern Labour Party.” Do you think your posts are against the spirit of this?

I would like a Labour representative or Chakrabarti herself (the next time she pays a visit to one of my concerts) to point to where the denial, approval or minimization of the holocaust appears in my article. In fact, my argument relies on the opposite conclusion. I demand that Jews and Israelis be subject to scrutiny based on the moral lesson of the holocaust. I guess that someone in the Labour’s NEC must believe that Jews and Israel are beyond criticism. Maybe before they preach to us about discrimination, they should look in the mirror.

By rejecting the idea that the Jewish State apply the moral lesson of the holocaust, and by censuring such an ethical message as “detrimental to the party”, the party is admitting that it is a discriminatory institution that is removed from universal ethical thinking. The Labour Party is now openly racist and should be dissolved immediately in accordance with its own anti-prejudice rules.

The Labour inquisitor continues:

Rule 2.I.8 in the party’s rulebook states:

“No member of the party shall engage in conduct which in the opinion of the NEC is prejudicial, or in any act which in the opinion of the NEC is grossly detrimental to the party.”

This Kafkaesque statement alone provides ample reason for Northam to show the Labour party the finger as by now every Briton should do. But I will address the Labour inquisitor’s question.

By rejecting the idea that the Jewish State apply the moral lesson of the holocaust, and by censuring such an ethical message as “detrimental to the party”, the party is admitting that it is a discriminatory institution that is removed from universal ethical thinking. The Labour Party is now openly racist and should be dissolved immediately in accordance with its own anti-prejudice rules.

The Labour inquisitor adds:

The party’s Code of Conduct: Social Media Policy states that “treat all people with dignity and respect. This applies offline and online.” Do you think the posts in this pack are consistent with this policy?”

And I answer: how is it disrespectful to demand that the Jewish State be subject to the same rules as anyone else? In fact, it is Zionist to the core, as early Zionism promised, in Theodor Herzl’s pamphlet, Der Judenstaat, to make Jews a people like all others.

The Labour Party is institutionally bigoted. It discriminates in favour of a racist criminal state. It terrorises and harasses anyone who questions the criminal and genocidal conduct of that state. The Labour Party has little or nothing to do with Labour values let alone left-wing principles. It is a disgusting occupied body.

The Labour inquisitor ends his letter to Northam as follows:

Looking back at the evidence supplied with this letter, do you regret posting or sharing any of this content? Do you intend to post content of this nature in the future?

It seems that Northam has made up her mind. She has closed the door on this repellent, compromised party, and every thinking Briton should follow her. The Labour Party in its current form is an authoritarian Israeli hasbara unit. It may be the most dangerous party in Europe as it is deliberately endangering our most elementary human rights: the right to speak and think freely, the right to explore ethical and universal thinking and the need to criticise that which needs criticism.

‘Ominous’ UN Report Warns Human Activity


‘Ominous’ UN Report Warns Human Activity Has Pushed One Million Plant and Animal Species to Brink of Extinction

“Nature is collapsing around us and it’s a real wake-up call to humanity.”

United Nations report described as the most authoritative and comprehensive assessment of global biodiversity ever published found that human exploitation of the natural world has pushed a million plant and animal species to the brink of extinction—with potentially devastating implications for the future of civilization.

“This is the most thorough, the most detailed and most extensive planetary health check. The take home message is that we should have gone to the doctor sooner. We are in a bad way.”
—Andy Purvis, report author

Conducted by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) and released Monday, the report warned that species extinction rates are “accelerating” at an “unprecedented” rate due to the human-caused climate crisis and economic activity.

“The overwhelming evidence of the IPBES Global Assessment, from a wide range of different fields of knowledge, presents an ominous picture,” Sir Robert Watson, chair of the IPBES, said in a statement. “The health of ecosystems on which we and all other species depend is deteriorating more rapidly than ever. We are eroding the very foundations of our economies, livelihoods, food security, health, and quality of life worldwide.”

While the report’s findings—compiled by a team of hundreds of experts from 50 nations—are dire and cause for serious alarm, Watson said, there is still a window for action.

“It is not too late to make a difference, but only if we start now at every level from local to global,” said Watson. “Through ‘transformative change,’ nature can still be conserved, restored, and used sustainably—this is also key to meeting most other global goals. By transformative change, we mean a fundamental, system-wide reorganization across technological, economic, and social factors, including paradigms, goals, and values.”

Eduardo Brondizio, co-chair of the IPBES, echoed Watson, saying “business as usual has to end.”

What are the 5 direct drivers of change in nature with largest relative global impacts?

1: Change in land & sea use.

2: Direct exploitation of organisms.

3: Climate Change

4: Pollution

5: Invasive Species.

— Newly launched @IPBES

The IPBES report comes as youth-led movements across the globe are organizing and taking to the streets en masse to pressure political leaders to take climate action in line with the urgency demanded by the scientific evidence.

Andrew Wetzler, managing director of the nature program for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), told the Washington Post that the IPBES assessment shows “that nature is collapsing around us and it’s a real wake-up call to humanity.”

According to the report:

  • The average abundance of native species in most major land-based habitats has fallen by at least 20 percent, mostly since 1900;
  • More than 40 percent of amphibian species, almost 33 percent of reef forming corals, and more than a third of all marine mammals are threatened;
  • The picture is less clear for insect species, but available evidence supports a tentative estimate of 10 percent being threatened;
  • At least 680 vertebrate species had been driven to extinction since the 16th century and more than 9 percent of all domesticated breeds of mammals used for food and agriculture had become extinct by 2016, with at least 1,000 more breeds still threatened.

Andy Purvis, professor at the Natural History Museum in London and one of the report’s main authors, said the findings show that the “society we would like our children and grandchildren to live in is in real jeopardy.”

“This is the most thorough, the most detailed and most extensive planetary health check. The take home message is that we should have gone to the doctor sooner. We are in a bad way,” Purvis said. “I cannot overstate it. If we leave it to later generations to clear up the mess, I don’t think they will forgive us.”

Critics Condemn ‘Double Dehumanization’ of Palestinians

Critics Condemn ‘Double Dehumanization’ of Palestinians by Corporate Media as Headlines Focus on Israeli Casualties

“Palestinian deaths are primarily viewed as ‘retaliation’ by international media outlets, while Israeli deaths would never receive that kind coverage.”

Human rights advocates and progressives in Congress on Monday slammed the corporate media for perpetuating anti-Palestinian sentiments in their reporting on the violence in Gaza and Israel over the weekend.

Major newspapers gave little in-depth information or a timeline regarding the Israeli military’s killing of four Palestinians at a protest on Friday—one of the weekly demonstrations Palestinians have held for more than a year to call for an end to illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank, blockades which have led to food and medicine shortages, and ongoing attacks by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).

Instead, major news sources reported mainly on more than 200 rockets which Hamas and the Islamic Jihad launched into Israel and Israeli settlements, writing that Israel retaliated for those attacks and ignoring what led up to the rocket strikes.

The rocket strikes on Saturdayfrom Gaza killed four people, while Israel’s airstrikes which were launched later killed at least 23, including two pregnant women and two infants.

As TRT World reported Monday, “Palestinian deaths are primarily viewed as ‘retaliation’ by international media outlets, while Israeli deaths would never receive that kind coverage.”

In February, the United Nations said that Israeli soldiers who attack Palestinians at peaceful protests could be found liable for war crimes.

Critics directly confronted several news outlets on social media for printing headlines suggesting that the rocket strikes were spontaneous acts of violence.

View image on Twitter



This is a stunningly irresponsible and misleading headline. Israel shot dozens of unarmed Palestinian protestors in Gaza on Friday and killed 4 Palestinians, including two protesters, in Gaza before any projectiles were launched.



It also highlights the orientalist lens thru which western media covers Israel/Palestine – where Israeli life is considered far more valuable than Palestinian life – news always starts when Israeli life is threatened while harm to Palestinian life is not news but “normal”.


Omar Baddar


A quick thread on Gaza.

4 Palestinian protesters killed in Gaza by Israel on Friday, BEFORE rocket fire out of Gaza. But what are today’s headlines?

CNN: “430 rockets fired from Gaza, Israel responds with airstrikes”

BBC: “Gaza rocket barrage prompts Israel strikes” (1/?)


Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), the first Palestinian-American woman to serve in the U.S. Congress, denounced the New York Times for a headline reading, “Gaza Militants Fire 250 Rockets, and Israel Responds With Airstrikes.”

“Headlines like this and framing it in this way just feeds into the continued lack of responsibility on Israel who unjustly oppress and target Palestinian children and families,” wrote Tlaib.

Author and professor Saree Makdisi also wrote Monday about newspapers’ choices regarding the language with which they describe Palestinians and Israelis, and how such choices leave news consumers with little sense of the reality on the ground:

The way sentences are constructed and the word choices made (‘militant,’ ‘retaliation,’ etc.) frame the story in such a way that the story is told before it even really begins, because the words have done their work. (Once you hear that a state is ‘retaliating’ for ‘militant’ rocket fire, what more do you really need to know? And how different would it be if you read that the rockets were being fired in ‘retaliation’ for years of occupation?). ‘Militant’ is used to describe Palestinians but not Israelis (who are presumably peaceable).

TRT World also noted that CNNfailed to mention the pregnant civilians’ deaths in Gaza until the sixth paragraph of its report on the violence. Journalist Katie Halper wrote that neglecting to report on the deaths of routinely-persecuted Palestinians amounted to “double dehumanization.”

Tlaib’s colleague in Congress, fellow progressive Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), attempted to correct the record put forth by a number of influential news sources—writing on Twitter that “the status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable” and that its continuation will only result in continued violence in the region.

Bolsonaro To Sign Decree to Allow Carrying Loaded Weapons

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro will sign a decree that will allow shooters, hunters, and gun collectors to roam around the streets with loaded weapons.

Brazil’s far-right President Jair Bolsonaro will sign a decree Tuesday relaxing rules of carrying weapons for collectors, hunters, and sports shooters, known by the acronym CAC.

“I’m going to sign [the decree] on Tuesday at 4 p.m. You can rest easy. CAC will not have a limit on the amount of ammunition and they will also be able to transport the loaded weapon,” Bolsonaro told a supporter Sunday.

Last Tuesday the spokesman of the president General Otavio Rego Barros announced that the Bolsonaro was preparing the said decree.

Barros said teh far-right president had been planning to allow the transportation of loaded weapons for CAC, especially for the sport shooters from their house to the shooting stand.

The carrying of weapons for sport shooters had already been made flexible in March 2017.

Currently, other CACs must carry unloaded weapons so that it cannot be readily used on the street to fire.

The President of Brazilian Forum for Public Security, Renato Sergio de Lima said the presidential decree would be a step towards the legalization of the possession of weapons in the country.

He also said the decree can be questioned in court because it violates the spirit of control provided in the Disarmament Statute.

The arsenal and granting of records for hunters, sport shooters and firearm collectors increased 879% in the period, from 2014 (8,988) to 2018 (87,989). Currently, there are 255,402 active licenses in Brazil. The number of weapons in the hands of this group is 350,683 units.

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov made teh comments after hold a rare face-to-face meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Finland. 

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov held talks with his U.S. counterpart Mike Pompeo in Finland Monday after which he warned that U.S. ​​​​​​military intervention in Venezuela would be catastrophic and unjustified.

The two men met on the sidelines of a meeting of the Arctic Council in Finland.

Lavrov told reporters his meeting had been constructive and that the two top diplomats had made decent progress when it came to discussing strategic nuclear stability.

Lavrov also said he was sure that Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump would have another chance to meet again after their summit in Helsinki last year.

“We strongly oppose military actions wherever they violate international law, the use of force can be authorized only by the U.N. Security Council or the force can be used in response to an aggression against a sovereign state, nothing similar is Watch in Venezuela,” Lavrov told reporters.

“We reviewed several regional situations that are on the current agenda, international relations in general, and we discussed issues related to strategic stability,.”

In reference to the situation in Venezuela, Lavrov stressed that “among my contacts with American, European and Latin American colleagues I do not see supporters of a reckless military solution .”

He added that he hopes that this understanding “becomes a practical policy, and that there is no military solution, because it would be catastrophic.”

The U.S. secretary of state said that the two had discussed Venezuela and that Washington wants Cuba, Iran and Russia out of the OPEC nation.

He added that the United States has seen activity from Iran that indicated a possible “escalation,” one day after the United States said it would send a carrier strike group to the Middle East to counter a “credible threat by Iranian regime forces.”

He also urged the United States to cancel its “irresponsible” plans to oust President Nicolas Maduro.

He added that the Maduro government continues its calls on the Trump administration for dialogue along with the Venezuelan right-wing opposition so “we are sure that the commitment of the dialogue will prevail over Venezuela.”

The meeting comes just days after the failed coup attempt in Venezuela by oppositional lawmaker Juan Guaido and his right-wing allies in the country. The coup received the support of the United States government and its right-wing allies who have recognized Guaido as the country’s “interim president” three months ago, after he illegally slef-declared himself as such on Jan. 23.

The Russian top diplomat is expected to meet with his U.S. counterpart Mike Pompeo next week in Finland where the two will discuss the Venezuelan sitiation. President Donald trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin spoke on the phone Friday where Trump said the two agreed that a “positive outcome” was needed for the Venezuelan political situation.

The Trump administration has in recent years escalated the U.S. decades-long aggressive policy against Venezuela, as he imposed hars economic sanctions against Caracas, including sanctions against oil that many experts have warned against considering the impact on global markets.

A study released late last month by the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) revealed that 40,000 Venezuelans have died since August 2017 as a result of the economic sanctions imposed by the United States as the Maduro government struggled to get medicine and supplies for patients.  ​​​​​​​
