I’m going to try and keep this as brief as possible so that the gravity of what I’m about to share isn’t lost in too many details. In my opinion, what I’ve discovered is nothing less than premeditated murder… It’s crazy to even say that, but there’s no other conclusion that I can draw after reviewing these FDA ‘Guidance for Industry’ documents, published years before the Covid fiasco. This is the smoking gun evidence that proves they knew that the gene therapy products they masqueraded as ‘vaccines’ had the ability to shed, cause cancer and kill…  It’s Gene Therapy – Not a Vaccine. – It’s critical that people understand that the Covid-19 injections are gene therapy. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention currently defines a “vaccine” as a preparation used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases. However, that definition changed in 2021 because it didn’t apply to the COVID-19 vaccines. A vaccine must contain an antigen to trigger the body’s natural immune response. Pfizer and Moderna’s mRNA vaccines do not contain antigens. The active substance used to elicit an immune response in these vaccines is the mRNA—a form of nucleic acid and the genetic material of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that provides instructions to the body for producing antigens—spike proteins (actually it is modRNA – see my previous posts – and also contaminated with DNA)…  Moreso, Moderna and Pfizer’s own SEC filings admit that they are gene therapy products. On pages 148 & 149 of Moderna’s 2019 SEC filing there is a legally mandated discussion of “risk factors” that reads as follows: ‘No mRNA drug has been approved in this new potential class of medicines and may never be approved as a result of efforts by others or us. mRNA drug development has substantial clinical development and regulatory risk due to the novel and unprecedented nature of this new class of medicines…  As a potential new class of medicines, no mRNA medicines have been approved to date by the FDA or other regulatory agency… currently mRNA is considered a gene therapy product by the FDA.’..  In March 2015 the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the FDA and the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research published a ‘guide for industry’ entitled: ‘Determining the Need for and Content of Environmental Assessments for Gene Therapies, Vectored Vaccines, and Related Recombinant Viral or Microbial Products’ from which I pulled the following definition of ‘gene therapy’:

It defines gene therapies as ‘products that mediate their effects by transcription and/or translation of transferred genetic material and/or by integrating into the host genome and that are administered as nucleic acids, viruses or genetically engineered microorganisms. The products may be used to modify cells in vivo or transferred to cells ex vivo prior to administration to the recipient.’..  ‘For purposes of this guidance, a vectored vaccine is one that uses a virus or microbe (typically a bacterium), or a DNA plasmid to introduce DNA/RNA encoding for antigens to cells of the body. “Vector” refers to the virus microbe or DNA plasmid used as the carrier.’..  So, what does that mean in English? It means the Covid vaccines are gene products…  Shedding: They Knew It Was Possible – We were called ‘conspiracy theorists’ and gaslit and censored when we warned about shedding and questioned why unvaccinated females were bleeding abnormally after being exposed to the jabbed. These documents prove they knew these products could shed and harm those who never consented to gene therapy… In August 2015 they published “Design and Analysis of Shedding Studies for Virus or Bacteria-Based Gene Therapy and Oncolytic Products” in which they admit that these gene therapy products can shed in multiple ways.

Clear as day, it indicates the term ‘shedding’ means ‘release of VBGT or oncolytic products from the patient through one or all of the following ways: excreta (feces) secreta (urine, saliva, nasopharyngeal fluids, etc.) or through the skin (pustules, sores, wounds).’.. The document goes on to reveal they identified safety risks to untreated (unvaccinated) individuals from these products.

Shedding raises the possibility of transmission of VBGT or oncolytic products from treated to untreated individuals (e.g. close contacts and health care professionals).”

“The possibility that the shed VBGT or on oncolytic product may be infectious raises safety concerns related to the risk of transmission to untreated individuals.”

They knew about the potential for this to transfer (shed) from those injected with the Covid-19 gene therapy product to those who did not consent. They identified multiple vectors in which a non-consenting person could be affected and harmed through the body fluid or excretions of a treated person. This is an open admission and a clear violation of the Nuremburg Code’s first principle of voluntary consent…  Cancer & Delayed Adverse Events – I wish I could tell you that’s the worst of it, but there’s more. They knew these gene therapy products could cause cancer, even years after injection. The November 2006 publication of “Gene Therapy Clinical Trials: Observing Subjects for Delayed Adverse Events” revealed the following:

This document warns that these gene therapy products carry the risk of adverse effects on normal cell function and could delay adverse events for months or even years. Even more alarming is the disclaimer about the ‘integration of genetic material into the host genome’ and ‘altered expression’ of the host’s genes. The fact checkers will tell you until they’re blue in the face that the jabs do not affect or change your DNA and clearly, that is false… A 2023 study analyzed the cellular DNA of humans suffering from Long Covid. The authors found genes uniquely specific to the Pfizer COVID BNT162b2 vaccine in those human blood cells. Their findings prove that mRNA COVID vaccines permanently integrate into the DNA of some COVID-vaccinated people…  Simply put, the regulatory agencies knew that these products could integrate into the host genome, cause cancer (malignant transformation), autoimmune disorders and adverse events years after the fact. Also, consider that even when these products do not integrate into the genome, the continual exposure due to the shedding (discussed above) may increase the risk of cancer.

In 2021 I said that in 3-5 years we were going to see the true extent of the damage from the Covid vaccines. What are we seeing now? Turbo cancers and an onslaught of ‘died suddenly’ headlines amongst the otherwise young and healthy. Oncologists are reporting an alarming increase in aggressive, fast-growing cancers that don’t respond to the normal treatment protocols…  The Panic & The Pill: Sold by the Same People – These jabs are designed killing machines and were distributed knowing that they would shed and kill people. They created a gene therapy product, marketed it as a ‘vaccine’ then schemed, coerced, bribed and lied to get it into as many arms as possible… The Hegelian Dialectic ‘problem, reaction, solution’ is at play here. They knew it could cause cancer – years after injection and now that there is an epidemic of cancer, amazingly they have a ‘solution’ ready to go.

This is beyond lack of informed consent, folks. This shows a conspiracy. This is a RICO action that should be filed… Please consider donating at the links below so that we have more resources to take legal action against those who perpetrated this egregious crime on the world.”Update on Palestine: IDF Claims Gaza City Victory – by Simplicius The Thinker – https://simplicius76.substack.com/p/update-on-palestine-idf-claims-gaza – “Today Israel announced that they have finally taken “full control” over Gaza City—the northern and most populous portion of the Gaza Strip. Naturally, they erected a giant menorah and Israeli flag in the center (short video of installation)… I remain skeptical of their claims, but we’ll indulge them at face value for the sake of the report. Even if they did manage to fully secure it, keep in mind it has now taken nearly three months to capture a territory the size of the small red speck inside the Gaza Strip seen below juxtaposed within Ukraine for comparison (map showing miniscule area)… The “world’s most advanced military” took three months to manage a claimed capture of that while fighting a completely technologically outmatched foe who they outnumber 500k to ~10k… The IDF also has now used this capture as excuse to explain the dismissal of several top brigades to the rear for reconstitution. Instead of being made combat ineffective, the line is now that they have valiantly completed their mission and are taking a rest. They claim that in capturing Gaza City, they have eliminated 8000 Hamas fighters. However, John Kirby himself appears dubious regarding this, as he implies that Hamas has not been measurably attrited (video of Kirby equivocating as usual)… Netanyahu is again agitating for war with Lebanon next. In the meantime, radical Israeli politicians continue pushing for the total ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. Most alarming is the fact that they are basing their policies on the alleged popular support amongst Israeli society for same. Here’s Likud party and Knesset member Moshe Saada openly stating that the people in the streets, the Kibbutz-dwellers, etc., are all shouting in unision: “Annihilate them (Gazans).” – And here is the Israeli ambassador to the UK just nonchalantly admitting that all of Gaza must be destroyed (charming video)… Where does such inhuman barbarity stem from, you wonder? I believe it is a case of simple unrestrained human nature. Those who’ve read books like Lord of the Flies know that humans can very quickly devolve into quite immoral, depraved, and Machiavellian brutes if there are no checks in place to restrain some of human nature’s darker impulses. You see, it’s not that all humans are necessarily mindlessly depraved by nature per se, but rather that it’s very easy to set off a cascade event of unethical behavior when only a small pilot group initiates it… Think of baseball, boxing, or any sport in general. It takes only one guy to be juiced up on steroids to create a cascade that sees the entire league begin juicing due to the power creep nature of the realization that if you don’t do this too, you won’t be able to compete. Likewise, in an environment where there are no restraints, a small ‘contagion’ of bad behavior can set off a chain reaction as it spreads to others by a variety of vectors… How does all this pertain to the utterly breathtaking criminality and inhumanly racist hatred seen in the Israeli society toward the Palestinians? For a long time now criticism of anything remotely related to Israel or Jewish-ness was highly verboten due to the black mark of “anti-Semitism” being cast against anyone who dared criticize their actions. In the same sort of way that the modern liberal movement has created blowback in the form of liberal fragility and the complete inability to debate or face facts, nor take any criticism whatsoever—a fact we see often, as liberals melt down into fits of feral screaming or crying when refuted by reality—the modern Israeli state, its inhabitants, and proponents likewise have never had to deal with genuine structured criticism because the West has generally been so obsequiously permissive toward it. Most importantly: they’ve never had to deal with accountability… Israel can be viewed like one of those overly-pampered babies—the golden calf of the family—which never hears the word ‘no’ and whose every squall brings mommy dashing over to immediately coddle it. Israel has carried out terror and crimes for decades that any other country in the world would have been immediately reproached, condemned, and sanctioned for. This has created a sense of unparalleled historical entitlement and exceptionalism in Israeli society such that they feel no qualms whatsoever about glibly and openly calling for genocide. In any other society, it would not only make instant headlines but would make the top docket at the UN human rights council meetings. But in Israel, you can call for genocide, you can demean the Palestinians with open racism as Israeli TV so often does, and it doesn’t get so much as a passing glance or shrug… Some consider such a viewpoint to be “anti-Semitic”, but there are two things to consider: The Palestinians are the original Semitic people of the region. There is in fact nothing in the world more pro-Semitic than such views… Most worldwide Jews appear to be in support of Palestine and are becoming increasingly anti-Zionist. I don’t know what the actual statistics are, and would be interested to see them. But even much of Israeli society is now openly rebuking the IDF, thus making the hateful portion of the population the true anti-Semites… The last point obviously goes to show that not all of Israel can be characterized in such a negatively broad stroke. But of course the highly vocal and radicalized segment of it which are the bad seeds still account for such a staunch amount of violent racism and pro-genocide views that it still justifies the earlier characterizations… As I said, when left to their devices, when a people’s most cruel and malign inclinations are left totally unchecked without any pushback or repudiation, it creates an enabling effect that essentially communicates to those people: “Keep going, what you’re doing is totally normal and acceptable.” Israel has been the favored son for so long, its most transgressive acts ignored and tacitly allowed for such a length of time, that it has simply developed a natural sense of entitlement and divine exceptionalism. Now, when the world suddenly stands up to it for the first time, Israel is dumbstruck with feigned shock like a child caught with its hand in the cookie jar… This is not to say Israeli people are somehow bad by nature or genetically. No, just like the current Ukrainians, Israelis are to an extent being used by western colonialist powers. And in order for their colonialist-outpost to thrive, the powers that be must ensure that the puppet state has full immunity from any sort of accusations of wrongdoing or prosecutorial blowback. This is why Ukrainians are given full sanction to be Nazis and commit mass murder and genocide on Donbass, and it is why Israelis get the same allowance. It has nothing to do with race and everything to do with great power politics and how colonialist outposts are conditioned and molded in order to further the geopolitical ends and interests of their sponsors… Now, the coordinated narrative has turned to finding a new home for ethnically cleansed Gazans, as we long predicted here from the literal outset of the conflict. They are couching this with standard imperial terminology, calling it “humanitarian emigration”… Here the Israeli finance minister underlines how Gaza must be cleansed (video of the adamant and effusive Bezalel Smotrich)… Did you catch that at the end? – Once again in totally choreographed fashion, he states this “humanitarian solution” must be enacted to save Gazans. Yes, the Israeli “final solution” but in “humanitarian” robes…On cue, Nikki Haley follows the directive in her new interview, shockingly openly calling for ethnic cleansing (Nikki works on removing any confusion about where her loyalties lie)… In fact, her statement is extremely anti-Semitic against Palestinians because she uses subtly coded pre-genocide language to dehumanize Palestinian civilians as ‘Hamas’ operatives and, by extension, “terrorists”—eligible for legal elimination, it is to be inferred. This is a highly dangerous anti-Semitic trope used by racist Zionists in recent videos where they have attributed “all Palestinians” to be either Hamas or Hamas-“affiliated” in order to justify their calls for genocide against them… For instance from today (American woman saying she doesn’t think the children of Gaza are innocent)… Note how the anti-Semite above considers all Palestinian children to be guilty by association in order to excuse her warped genocidal fantasies… In the same vein, Nikki Haley’s call to relocate all Gazans into “Hamas” countries is clearly an attempt to subconsciously link innocent civilians to ‘terrorism’. And that’s of course besides the fact that she’s openly calling for ethnic cleansing of an entire population, which is a crime against humanity, and goes against every international law—except the western Luciferian “Rule of Law”…Now it’s been reported that Israel is attempting to force friendly countries to pressure South Africa’s judges who have filed a genocide case in the international court at the Hague against Israel: “Israel accused of ‘Effort to Intimidate the Judges Ahead of Genocide Hearing.” – According to a cable obtained by Axios, the Israeli Foreign Ministry is calling on the country’s embassies to pressure host country diplomats and political leaders to swiftly issue an “immediate and unequivocal statement along the following lines: To publicly and clearly state that YOUR COUNTRY rejects the outrage[ous], absurd, and baseless allegations made against Israel.”.. The cable warns that “a ruling by the court could have significant potential implications that are not only in the legal world but have practical bilateral, multilateral, economic, security ramifications.” Israel is seeking to prevent an injunction ordering the country to suspend its attack on Gaza… That’s not to mention the fact that members of Israeli Knesset’s own pro-Arab Hadash-Ta’al political party have joined in on the lawsuit for the Hague, according to Jerusalem Post: But Israel’s plan appears to amount to this: slow-roll the operation while desperately searching the globe for a place willing to have Gazans offloaded onto it. We’ve seen Congo in discussion, with Haley bringing up Qatar, Iran, Turkey, etc.—all prima facie non-serious suggestions… Israel officials have clearly signaled that they intend to occupy Gaza, and Netanyahu just this week reiterated that they will “not stop the war” until all objectives are reached… By the way, as a slightly tangential note, here’s Israeli ambassador Mark Regev openly admitting that we haven’t seen a single killed Hamas fighter—yet preposterously attributing this to the fact that “Hamas controls all images out of Gaza” (right)… How does that make any sense? Does Hamas control all the IDF bodycams and endless videos that Israeli soldiers have released of themselves romping through Gaza? How is Hamas behind the fact that the IDF itself has not shown us a single eliminated Hamas militant? What does this really tell us about how many “Hamas fighters” the inept IDF has actually “eliminated”? – This is the same individual who said with a straight face that it’s a lie to claim Israel has killed a single Palestinian child (obviously well-versed in the Facts on the Ground…) – This is how immorally and reprehensibly sick a government can become when it is given unfettered moral license to act as it pleases without any international accountability whatsoever… Headline: Ex Israeli Pilot: Our Army is a Terrorist Organization Run by War Criminals… You don’t say? – One of the consequences of all this is the Biden administration has become divided like never before. Yesterday we learned that Raytheon Lloyd was hospitalized in intensive care for days without the president’s knowledge… The United States of America, at a time of historic international upheaval and danger to ‘American interests’ abroad, was functionally without a Secretary of Defense for almost a week without the commander-in-chief’s knowledge. Some assumed Austen’s deputy Kathleen Hicks would take over—except she was on ‘vacation’ in Puerto Rico at the time. How convenient! – It ties into the Israeli situation because rumors have it disgruntled White House staffers were responsible for hiding the information from Biden over his contentious stance on Palestine—another case of open rebellion, if true. It once more highlights the deepening rifts within the corrupt and beleaguered Biden administration… As to Lloyd’s “minor elective procedure”—which appeared to leave him comatose for nearly an entire week—there’s no definitive word. But some suspect it may have been an emergency surgical extraction of an uncashed Raytheon kickback from his netherside.””The long history of Zionist proposals to ethnically cleanse the Gaza Strip – Ethnic cleansing or “transfer” is an intrinsic part of Zionism’s early history, and has remained an essential feature of Israeli political life. More recently, “transfer” has been mainstreamed by billing it as encouraging “voluntary emigration.”- by Mouin Rabbani – https://mondoweiss.net/2023/12/the-long-history-of-zionist-proposals-to-ethnically-cleanse-the-gaza-strip/ – “Senior Israeli leaders, including Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, are again publicly advocating the ethnic cleansing of the Gaza Strip. Their proposals are being presented as voluntary emigration schemes, in which Israel is merely playing the role of Good Samaritan, selflessly mediating with foreign governments to find new homes for destitute and desperate Palestinians. But it is ethnic cleansing all the same… Alarm bells should have started ringing in early November when U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and other Western politicians began insisting there could be “no forcible displacement of Palestinians from Gaza.” Rather than rejecting any mass removal of Palestinians, Blinken and colleagues objected only to optically challenging expulsions at gunpoint. The option of “voluntary” displacement by leaving residents of the Gaza Strip with no choice but departure was pointedly left open… Ethnic cleansing, or “transfer” as it is known in Israeli parlance, has a long pedigree that goes back to the late-nineteenth-century beginnings of the Zionist movement. While the early Zionists adopted the slogan, “A Land Without a People for a People Without a Land,” the evidence demonstrates that, from the very outset, their leaders knew better. More to the point, they clearly understood that the Palestinians formed the main obstacle to the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine. This is for the simple reason that, to them, a “Jewish state” denotes one in which its Jewish population acquires and maintains unchallenged demographic, territorial, and political supremacy… Enter “transfer.” As early as 1895, Theodor Herzl, the founder of the contemporary Zionist movement, identified the necessity of removing the inhabitants of Palestine in the following terms: We shall try to spirit the penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries, while denying it any employment in our own country … expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly.” David Ben-Gurion (née Grün), Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, and later Israel’s first prime minister, was more blunt. In a 1937 letter to his son, he wrote: “We must expel the Arabs and take their place.” – Writing in his diary in 1940, Yosef Weitz, a senior Jewish National Fund official who chaired the influential Transfer Committee before and during the Nakba (“Catastrophe”), and became known as the Architect of Transfer, put it thus: “The only solution is a Land of Israel devoid of Arabs. There is no room here for compromise. They must all be moved. Not one village, not one tribe, can remain. Only through this transfer of the Arabs living in the Land of Israel will redemption come.” His diaries are littered with similar sentiments… The point of the above is not to demonstrate that individual Zionist leaders held such views, but that the senior leadership of the Zionist movement consistently considered the ethnic cleansing of Palestine an objective and priority. Initiatives such as the Transfer Committee, and Plan Dalet, initially formulated in 1944 and described by the pre-eminent Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi as the “Master Plan for the Conquest of Palestine,” additionally demonstrate that the Zionist movement actively planned for it. The 1948 Nakba, during which more than four-fifths of Palestinians residing in territory that came under Israeli rule were ethnically cleansed, should, therefore, be seen as the fulfillment of a longstanding ambition and implementation of a key policy. A product of design, not of war (historical Christmas footnote: the Palestinian town of Nazareth was spared a similar fate only because the commander of Israeli forces that seized the city, a Canadian Jew named Ben Dunkelman, disobeyed orders to expel the population, and was relieved of his command the following day)… That the Nakba was a product of design is further substantiated by the Transfer Committee’s terms of reference. These comprised not only proposals for the expulsion of the Palestinians but, just as importantly, active measures to prevent their return, destroy their homes and villages, expropriate their property, and resettle those territories with Jewish immigrants. Weitz, together with fellow Committee members Eliahu Sassoon and Ezra Danin, on June 5, 1948, presented a three-page blueprint, entitled “Scheme for the Solution of the Arab Problem in the State of Israel,” to Prime Minister Ben-Gurion to achieve these goals. According to leading Israeli historian Benny Morris, “there is no doubt Ben-Gurion agreed to Weitz’s scheme,” which included “what amounted to an enormous project of destruction” that saw more than 450 Palestinian villages razed to the ground… The understandable focus on the expulsions of 1948 often overlooks the fact that ethnic cleansing remains incomplete unless its victims are barred from returning to their homes by a combination of armed force and legislation, and thereafter replaced by others. It is Israel’s determination to make Palestinian dispossession permanent that distinguishes Palestinian refugees from many other war refugees… After 1948, Israel put out a whole series of fabrications to shift responsibility for the transformation of the Palestinians into dispossessed and stateless refugees onto the Arab states and the refugees themselves. These included claims that the refugees voluntarily left (they were either expelled or fled in justified terror); that Arab radio broadcasts ordered the Palestinians to flee (in fact, they were encouraged to stay put); that Israel conducted a population exchange with Arab states (there was nothing of the sort); and the bizarre argument that because they’re Arabs, Palestinians had numerous other states while Jews have only Israel (by the same logic, Sikhs would be entitled to seize British Columbia and deport its population to either the rest of Canada or the United States). More importantly, even if uniformly substantiated, none of these pretexts entitles Israel to prohibit the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes at the conclusion of hostilities. It is, furthermore, a right that was consecrated in United Nations General Assembly resolution 194 of December 11, 1948, which has been reaffirmed repeatedly since… Ethnic cleansing after 1967 – In 1967, Israel seized the remaining 22 percent of Mandatory Palestine — the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and the Gaza Strip. Depopulation in these territories operated differently than in 1948. Most importantly, Israel, in addition to prohibiting the return of Palestinians who fled hostilities during the 1967 June War, and encouraging others to leave (by, for example, providing a daily bus service from Gaza City to the Allenby Bridge connecting the West Bank to Jordan), conducted a census during the summer of 1967 . Any resident who was not present during the census was ineligible for an Israeli identity document and automatically lost their right of residency… As a result, the population of these territories declined by more than twenty percent overnight. Many of those thus displaced were already refugees from 1948. Aqbat Jabr Refugee Camp near Jericho, for example — until 1967, the West Bank’s largest — became a virtual ghost town after almost all its inhabitants became refugees once again in Jordan. So many Palestinians from the Gaza Strip ended up in Jordan that a new refugee camp, Gaza Camp, was established on the outskirts of Jerash. The occupied Palestinian territories would not recover their 1967 population levels until the early 1980s… Within the West Bank, there were also cases of mass expulsion. These included the town of Qalqilya, which was additionally slated for demolition but to which its residents were later permitted to return. Those of ‘Imwas (the Biblical Emmaus), Bayt Nuba, and Yalu in Jerusalem’s Latrun salient were less fortunate. They were summarily expelled (many today live in Ramallah’s Qaddura Refugee Camp), their villages demolished and annexed to Israel, and replaced by Canada Park, so named because the project was completed with donations from the Canadian Jewish community. Within Jerusalem’s Old City, the historic Mughrabi Quarter, abutting the Haram al-Sharif, was summarily razed to make way for a plaza astride the Wailing Wall. With many residents given only minutes to evacuate their homes, several were killed when the bulldozers went to work. According to Eitan Ben-Moshe, an engineer who oversaw the atrocity, “We threw out the wreckage of houses together with the Arab corpses.” – Depopulation through administrative rule – In subsequent years, Israel employed all kinds of administrative shenanigans to further reduce the Palestinian population of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Until the 1993 Oslo Accords, for example, an exit permit from Israel’s military government was required to leave the occupied territory. It was valid for only three years and thereafter renewable annually for a maximum of three additional years (for a fee) at an Israeli consulate. If a Palestinian lost an exit permit or failed to renew an exit permit prior to its expiration for any reason (including bureaucratic foot-dragging), or couldn’t pay the renewal fee, or failed to return to Palestine prior to its expiration, that Palestinian automatically lost residency rights. Separately, Israel, over the years, deported numerous activists and community leaders, primarily to Jordan and Lebanon. During the late 1960s and 1970s, it also exiled Gaza Palestinians accused of resisting the occupation, along with their families, to prison camps in the occupied Sinai Peninsula. Among those who spent time there was the iconic Palestinian leader Haidar Abdel-Shafi… A particularly notable case of administrative deportations occurred in 1992 after Israeli special forces botched an operation to rescue an Israeli soldier who had been seized by Hamas to exchange him for their imprisoned leader, Shaikh Ahmad Yasin. Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin ordered the summary deportation of approximately 400 Palestinians, many of them prisoners affiliated with Hamas and Islamic Jihad (PIJ), none accused of involvement in the incident that led to Rabin’s frenzied rage… In contrast to previous deportations, which were considered permanent, these were for one- and two-year terms. In its rush to carry out the deportations under cover of night, Israel expelled a number of Palestinians who were not on its list and left behind others who were. Needless to say, the mass expulsion was, as always in such matters, approved by Israel’s High Court of Justice after minor modifications. It ruled, among other things, that this was not a collective deportation but rather a collection of individual deportations. Perhaps more significantly, the deportees were stuck in an inhospitable no-man’s land, Marj al-Zuhur, because Lebanon refused to facilitate the deportations by receiving them. During their involuntary residence in Marj al-Zuhur, assistance came primarily from Hezbollah, and it was during this period that relations between Hamas, PIJ, and Hezbollah were solidified… Israel’s strategies to ‘thin’ Gaza’s population – With the focus in recent years on the intensified campaigns of ethnic cleansing in the West Bank, it is often forgotten that, for decades, the primary target for depopulation was the Gaza Strip, particularly its refugee population, which accounts for approximately three-quarters of the territory’s residents. Even before it occupied Gaza in 1967, Israel regularly promoted initiatives to achieve the “thinning” of its refugee population, with destinations as far afield as Libya and Iraq. Not without reason, Israel’s leaders felt uncomfortable with the presence of so many ethnically cleansed Palestinians within walking distance of their former homes. After 1967, it encouraged Palestinian emigration from the Gaza Strip to not only foreign countries but also the West Bank.

“Transfer,” often presented as the encouragement
 of voluntary emigration either by providing
 material incentives or making the conditions of life
 impossible, has become increasingly mainstreamed
in Israeli political life.

In 1969, Israel even devised a scheme to send 60,000 Palestinians from the Gaza Strip to Paraguay with offers of lucrative employment. The plan was negotiated between Paraguay’s military dictator Alfredo Stroessner and Mossad, the Israeli foreign intelligence agency. It was, of course, purely coincidental that, shortly thereafter, Mossad discovered it no longer had the resources to hunt Nazi fugitives in Paraguay, which had been one of their destinations of choice. The scheme was discontinued when several of its victims, upon realizing the promise of a new life of comfort was all a sham, shot up the Israeli embassy in Asuncion, killing one of its staff… ‘Transfer’ and Gaza today – In the decades since, “transfer,” often presented as the encouragement of voluntary emigration either by providing material incentives or making the conditions of life impossible, has become increasingly mainstreamed in Israeli political life. In 2019, for example, a “senior government official,” quoted in the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz, expressed a willingness to help Palestinians emigrate from the Gaza Strip… Mass expulsion has been gaining its share of adherents as well, and it is a position that is today represented within Israel’s coalition government. As has the idea that “transfer” should include Palestinian citizens of Israel — Avigdor Lieberman, for example, who was Israel’s Minister of Defense several years ago, is an advocate of not only emptying the West Bank and Gaza Strip of Palestinians but of getting rid of Palestinian citizens of Israel as well. As one might expect from a minister who was in charge of the Israeli military, he is also an advocate of “beheading” disloyal Palestinian citizens of Israel with “an axe.” – Against this background, Israel saw the attacks of October 7 as not only a threat but also as an opportunity. Fortified with unconditional U.S. and European support, Israeli political and military leaders immediately began promoting the transfer of Gaza’s Palestinian population to the Sinai desert. The proposal was enthusiastically embraced by the United States and by Secretary of State Antony Blinken in particular. Hopelessly out of his depth when it comes to the Middle East, as ever, he appears to have genuinely believed he could recruit or pressure Washington’s Arab client regimes to make Israel’s wish a reality. Given Egyptian strongman Abdelfattah al-Sisi’s economic troubles, the fallout of the Menendez scandal, and the looming Egyptian presidential elections, it was suggested to him by the Washington echo chamber that it would take only an IMF loan, debt relief, and a promise to file away Menendez to bring Cairo on board. As so often when it comes to the Middle East, Blinken, armed only with Israel’s latest wish list, didn’t have a clue his indecent proposal would be categorically rejected, first and foremost by Egypt… ‘Transfer’ as ‘voluntary emigration’ – The fallback position is opposition to “forcible displacement” at the point of a gun, while anything else is fair game. This includes reducing the Gaza Strip to rubble in what may well be the most intensive bombing campaign in history; a genocidal assault on an entire society that has killed civilians at an unprecedentedly rapid pace; the deliberate destruction of an entire civilian infrastructure, including the targeted obliteration of its health and education sectors; the highest proportion of households in hunger crisis ever recorded globally and the real prospect of pre-meditated famine; severance of the water and electricity supply leading to acute thirst, widespread consumption of non-potable water, and termination of sewage treatment; and promotion of a sharp rise in infectious disease. One Israeli soldier has already died of a fungal infection resulting from the collapse in sanitation he helped bring about in the Gaza Strip. How many Palestinians have been consumed by similar illnesses, we do not know, but it is reasonable to assume that children and the elderly are hit particularly hard… In other words, if desperate Palestinians seek to flee this seventh circle of hell to save their skins, that’s considered voluntary emigration — their choice. If they cannot remain in the Gaza Strip because Israel has made it unfit for human habitation with U.S. weapons, that is a voluntary choice that will be respected. And the U.S. and Israel are only here to help, like Mother Theresa, determined to assist every last one of them whether they like it or not… Danny Danon, a member of parliament who was previously Israel’s envoy to the United Nations (the guy who sounds like Elmer Fudd), recently held up the mass displacement of Syrians to multiple shores during the past decade as an example to be emulated. “Even if each country receives ten thousand, twenty thousand Gazans, this is significant.” – Asked about Danon’s proposal at a Likud meeting on Christmas Day, Netanyahu responded, “We are working on it. Our problem is [finding] the countries that are willing to absorb [them].” – As an editorial in the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz put it on December 27: “Israeli lawmakers keep pushing for transfer under the guise of humanitarian aid.” – Not to be outdone by the politicians, the Jerusalem Post ran an opinion piece entitled “Why Moving to the Sinai Peninsula is The Solution for Gaza’s Palestinians.” – “Sinai,” its author Joel Roskin enthused, “comprises one of the most suitable places on Earth to provide the people of Gaza with hope and a peaceful future.” – Not individual Gazans, but “the people of Gaza.” Notably, such proposals consistently take it as a given that those departing will never return. One waits with bated breath, for the European Union is expected to respond to these calls for mass expulsion with further investigations of Palestinian textbooks… While ethnic cleansing has been intrinsic to Zionist/Israeli ideology and practice from the very outset, it also has a flip side: the 1948 expulsion of the Palestinians expanded what had been a conflict between the Zionist movement and the Palestinians into a regional, Arab-Israeli one. The second Nakba Israel is currently inflicting on the Gaza Strip similarly appears well on its way to instigating the renewal of hostilities across the Middle East…  As importantly, the 1948 Nakba did not defeat the Palestinians, who initiated their struggle from the camps of exile, those in the Gaza Strip most prominently among them. It would take a Blinken level of foolishness to assume the expulsion of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip would produce a different outcome.

The War Racket’s Shadow Over Gaza: Unveiling the Ugly Truth Behind US-Israel Complicity – by Gerry Nolanhttps://islanderreports.substack.com/p/the-war-rackets-shadow-over-gaza“In the shadow of Gaza’s decimation, where over 23,000 Palestinians, primarily women and children, lie dead, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s words (Tuesday), ring hollow. Standing amidst the ruins, he decries the civilian toll as ‘far too high,’ yet his actions tell a different tale. The US, with Blinken at its helm, continues to fuel Israel’s war machine, supplying the very arms that enable this mass murder. This chilling dichotomy of empty rhetoric and lethal action unveils a brutal reality: the US, under the guise of diplomacy, is complicit in a ethnic cleansing it could halt with a single stroke of policy change – a ‘radical’ change that upholds the sanctity of human life… As Blinken navigates the Middle East, his platitudes of peace and rejection of permanent displacement in Gaza contrast starkly against the backdrop of ongoing US welfare-warfare payments and arms deliveries to Israel. These weapons are anything but tools of defence but instruments of an appalling onslaught against a besieged population. The US’s veto of any meaningful UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution calling for a ceasefire is not just a political maneuver; it’s an endorsement of the carnage, a clear signal of where its allegiance lies. This is not about security; it’s about perpetuating a war that benefits the few at the cost of tens of thousands of Palestinian lives. The hypocrisy is glaring when Blinken rejects the accusation of genocide at the International Court of Justice. By dismissing these charges as meritless, the US further entrenches its role as an apologist for war crimes. The US accused ethnic Serbs of committing genocide in Srebrenica, where that acknowledged total, though tragic is a fraction of the 23,000 Palestinians killed since October 7th. By its own precedent, the US opens itself up to the genocide label being aptly used here. What is certain? This is mass murder, these are horrific war crimes. This stance is a betrayal not only of Palestinian lives but also of the very principles of human rights and justice the US purports to champion. It’s a grim reminder that for some, war is a lucrative business, with companies like Raytheon and General Dynamics profiting from the endless cycle of violence. For the US, there seems to be only money to be made from the suffering that stems from the countless women and children brutally murdered by the war machine it provides to its glorified forward operating bases, be it in Ukraine or Israel. Palestinians and innocent Slavs are seemingly not considered the ‘chosen ones’ in the US’s ‘rules-based’ lottery, where lives deemed worthy of saving are selectively picked.


In a striking display of this duplicity, the US has continued to supply arms to Israel, even following incidents where these weapons have been used in apparent war crimes. For instance, during the May 2021 hostilities in Gaza, the Israeli military bombed a high-rise building housing international media organizations, a clear violation of international humanitarian law. Yet, in the wake of this, the US authorized an additional $735 million in arms sales of precision-guided weapons to Israel. Similarly, despite the US’s pronouncement to ending certain arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE due to their conduct in the Yemen war, it approved a $500 million military support deal for Saudi Arabia, ignoring the coalition’s numerous violations of the laws of war, including significant harm to Yemeni civilians…  Compounding this hypocrisy, Wall Street has eyed big profits from conflicts such as the war in Gaza. Financial analysts have openly discussed the financial benefits of the genocide of Gaza under the pretext of the “Hamas-Israel war” , with a focus on the boon to the aerospace and weapons sector. The stark and callous calculations of profit from human suffering starkly contrast with corporate “statements on human rights” that purportedly endorse the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. This blatant profiteering on war, while ignoring the human rights implications, underscores the deep-rooted moral conflicts in the financial and political support systems underpinning these conflicts.

In this bleak landscape, where regional tensions simmer and the spectre of a wider conflict looms, Blinken’s words are but a whisper against the roar of bombs and the silent screams of the fallen. This war, sustained by US arms and diplomatic cover, stands as a stark testament to the world’s failure to protect the vulnerable. It starkly reveals the diminishing veneer of moral authority that once cloaked US hegemonic global leadership. The pressing question remains: How many more lives will be sacrificed at the altar of exceptionalism and corporate greed? The blood of Gaza, it seems, is the price of this unholy alliance… This narrative extends beyond mere political alliances; it reveals the underlying war racket that drives global conflict. The military-media-industrial complex, with its insatiable appetite for profit, finds fertile ground in the ravaged landscapes of Gaza. The arms supplied by the US to Israel are not just weapons of war; they are the lifeblood of a lucrative business model that thrives on human suffering. The devastation in Gaza is not an unfortunate byproduct but a necessary condition for this profit-driven machinery… The role of the US in this equation is pivotal. Without American support, Israel would struggle to sustain its military operations on such a scale and would in fact be forced to peacefully coexist and sew for peace. This support is not a passive gesture; it is an active and strategic choice that aligns with the broader objectives of US foreign policy, that of glorified forward operating bases. Israel, much like Ukraine in its war with Russia, is used as the tip of the spear, a proxy in a larger game of geopolitical chess where human lives are expendable pawns… In the shadow of strategic alliances and cynical geopolitical maneuverings, the US-Israel relationship stands as a paradigm of complexity, codependency and contradiction. This relationship, deeply rooted in 20th century history, is a testament to the intricate interplay of military might, economic prowess, and cynical calculus. Dr. Stephen Zunes, paints a vivid picture of the US’s foreign aid to Israel, highlighting its uniqueness both in terms of magnitude and nature… The sheer scale of the aid – totalling a staggering $124 billion through fiscal year 2023 – marks it as the most substantial foreign-aid program in history between two countries (given how small Israel is)- . Significantly, this aid began to escalate notably after the 1967 War, transitioning from loans to grants (a sort of warfare-welfare) and reflecting a deepening commitment that transcends traditional donor-recipient dynamics. This financial warfare-welfare, funnelled directly into Israel’s government treasury, underscores a relationship of mutual (malignant) dependence and strategic alignment, far removed from the usual strings-attached aid given to other nations… Moreover, the US’s approach to Israel is characterized by a notable exceptionality. Unlike other recipients of American ‘generosity’, Israel enjoys the privilege of receiving aid in lump-sum payments, an arrangement that effectively provides it with financial leverage over the U.S. itself, as it can invest this money back into U.S. treasury bills. The relationship further extends into private realms, with American tax-deductible contributions and bond purchases swelling the flow of funds to Israel. This financial dynamic is not just a mere transactional exchange but a robust endorsement of Israel’s geopolitical and economic stance, cementing its position as a once pivotal player in regional and global affairs… The roots of this policy extend beyond mere financial aid. They are entwined with the strategic interests of the United States, where Israel has emerged as a crucial forward operating base in a volatile (by its own making) region. Its role in serving as a bulwark against perceived American threats has been pivotal. The alliance has a massive military dimensions too, with Israel providing a testing ground for American arms and acting as a conduit for U.S. arms to regimes and armed groups otherwise challenging to support openly… The Clinton administration further bolstered this relationship, viewing Israel not just as a beneficiary/dependent but as a strategic partner, integral to the broader objectives of U.S. foreign policy. This approach has resulted in a paradox: Israel, with its significant gifted economic and military capabilities, continues to receive aid at levels that seem disproportionate to its actual needs. It raises critical questions about the interplay of aid, military dependency, and the broader objectives of U.S. foreign policy in a world on the brink due to such dangerous and cynical policy… This alliance, while short-sightedly serving immediate geopolitical interests, has broader implications and dangers. It shapes the regional tensions in the Middle East, influences (prevents) the peace process, and impacts the socio-economic fabric of both nations. As Dr. Zunes elucidates, the U.S. commitment to maintaining the illusion of Israel’s military superiority and its unwavering financial support, despite the complex realities on the ground, reveals a relationship that is as much about power and politics as it is about mutual benefit and real security. Ironically, as we see playing out, leading to massive insecurity for both countries… Such a relationship, however, is not devoid of controversy or consequence. This high level of aid to Israel, as Dr. Zunes points out, has led to debates within both countries about its impact and sustainability. The paradox lies in the fact that, while this aid secures Israel’s military strength, it also deepens its economic dependence on the United States. This dependence raises critical questions about Israel’s long-term strategic autonomy, economic resilience and ultimately, survival as a sovereign state… In the US, this extensive aid program has not gone without scrutiny or criticism. Critics argue that this financial support, particularly in the form of military aid, has catastrophic consequences for American interests and global perceptions of the U.S., especially when considered in the context of other international conflicts and America’s stance on human rights and international law. The debate extends to the realm of how this aid impacts buys US influence, the dynamics of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the broader quest for a just peace in the region… The implications of this relationship are profound and multifaceted. On the one hand, it represents an albeit malignant, strategic partnership that has undoubtedly shaped and scared the geopolitical landscape of the Middle East. On the other hand, it raises significant questions about the nature of such aid, strategic alliances, and the intricate balance between cynical national interests and global responsibilities… As we move forward, understanding the nuances of this relationship remains crucial. It is not merely a question of financial aid but a complex tapestry of cynical interests, historical ties, and codependency. The U.S.-Israel alliance, as it stands, is a powerful signpost on the road where geopolitics and financial aid intersects with strategic objectives, shaping the policies that perpetuate human suffering and destinies of nations. It stands as a cautionary tale for emerging powers and superpowers of how not to do business, when humanity replaces war-fuelled greed… The tragic reality is that there is no profit in peace. The cessation of hostilities in Gaza does not serve the interests of those who profit from war. This is a war racket that thrives on perpetual conflict, where each bomb dropped and each life lost translates into financial gain for the few. The US, in its role as both supplier and enabler, is a key player in this deadly game. The continued support for Israel, despite widespread condemnation and the clear humanitarian crisis, is a testament to the priorities that drive US foreign policy… This leads to the unsettling question: Cui bono? Who benefits from this ongoing tragedy? The answer is starkly clear – the arms manufacturers, the politicians who support them, and the war hawks who advocate for endless conflict. The cost of this benefit is the lives of tens of thousands of Palestinians, the destruction of their homes, and the obliteration of their future… The moral implications of this are profound. The US, a nation that frequently positions itself as a global leader in human rights and democracy, is deeply entrenched in a war racket that blatantly mocks these values. The contradiction between America’s professed ideals and its actions in Gaza starkly highlights an odious hypocrisy within its foreign policy. The US’s support for Israel in this current conflict is not just a political alliance; it is a moral failing, an endorsement of systematic atrocities against an oppressed population.
