While the producer conceded that “there is currently no evidence (at least, of which we are aware) that 40 babies had been beheaded,” he claimed to have “gathered evidence” of other crimes.

Telling’s equivocal wording comes despite the fact that the “40 babies” claim has been definitively proven to be a total fabrication, and not simply an unproven claim.
Despite Telling trying to give the impression of new evidence, the claims he makes in the letters about Hamas fighters’ alleged behavior on 7 October strongly resembles already discredited and debunked Israeli claims about the alleged killing of babies and alleged sexual violence.

“Babies were shot in the head at very close range,” “women were raped and sexually molested” and “breasts were cut from women” the producer claimed.

But even official Israeli government figures do not support such claims.

The US Senate has passed a bill that contains another $14.1 billion dollars worth of weapons for Israel.

Although the Speaker of the Republican-controlled House has signalled opposition to it (because the bill also includes money for Ukraine, as well as Taiwan), to the point where he’s said he might even refuse to put it to a vote.

The Senate bill also enshrines into law the suspension of funding for UNRWA

Israel can harm civilians in Rafah without ‘consequences’ from US: Report

The US media outlet Politico has reported that the Biden administration will not pursue consequences for Israel if the country proceeds with an anticipated assault on Rafah, despite Washington’s demands that Israel develop a plan to avoid civilian casualties before launching the operation.

The report, which cites three anonymous officials in the Biden administration, states that “no reprimand plans are in the works, meaning Israeli forces could enter the city and harm civilians without facing American consequences”.

While the US has said that an Israeli assault on the city, whose population has increased five times as Israel instructed displaced Palestinians to seek refuge there, would be a “disaster”, the Biden administration has pushed back against suggestions that an Israeli incursion there could jeopardise continued US arms transfers.

So there you have it.Selling arms to Israel is what it’s all about.

South Africa makes urgent request to International Court of Justice on Rafah offensive
The South African Government has made an urgent request to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to consider whether the decision announced by Israel to extend its military operations in Rafah, which is the last refuge for surviving people in Gaza, requires that the court uses its power to prevent further imminent breach of the rights of Palestinians in Gaza.

Under Article 75(1) of the Rules of Court, “The Court may at any time decide to examine proprio motu whether the circumstances of the case require the indication of provisional measures which ought to be taken or complied with by any or all of the parties.”

In a request submitted to the court yesterday (12 February 2024), the South African government said it was gravely concerned that the unprecedented military offensive against Rafah, as announced by the State of Israel, has already led to and will result in further large scale killing, harm and destruction. This would be in serious and irreparable breach both of the Genocide Convention and of the Court’s Order of 26 January 2024.

South Africa trusts this matter will receive the necessary urgency in light of the daily death toll in Gaza.

The Algerian resolution did not link a ceasefire to the release of hostages.

It separately demanded an immediate humanitarian ceasefire and the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages.

“The message given today to Israel with this veto is that it can continue to get away with murder,” Palestinian UN envoy Riyad Mansour told the council.

Israel’s UN Ambassador Gilad Erdan said the word ceasefire was being mentioned “as if it is a silver bullet, a magical solution to all of the region’s problems”.

“A ceasefire achieves one thing and one thing only — the survival of Hamas,” Mr Erdan said.

“A ceasefire is a death sentence for many more Israelis and Gazans.”

well I think you are actually guaranteeing the survival of Hamas with your needless murdering and starving of innocent families.
