Quote from: Mrs Wogans lemon drizzle on November 17, 2023, 07:50:17 PMCurrently arguing with a guy in the pub who likens Hamas to the Nazis. His argument is: we (the allies) levelled Germany to get rid of the Nazis. Why should we not do the same for getting rid of Hamas. How can you even argue with this bullshit?

QuoteNew: Andy Eichar, Jeffries' NY comms director, responds to the DSA's "watermelon" flier, saying "the use of racially inflammatory imagery should come as no surprise given the role NYC-DSA and other gentrifiers have played in aggressively attacking Black elected officials."
QuoteWhy the watermelon is a symbol for the Palestinian causeFor people following the Israel-Gaza war, the watermelon isn't just a fruit.In recent weeks, protesters have been carrying watermelons through the streets, handing out chunks of the fruit to demonstrators, or painting pictures of watermelons on their faces. On social media, watermelon emojis are appearing in usernames and under posts about the conflict in Gaza.But what does the watermelon mean in this context, and why has it become such a prominent symbol for pro-Palestinian demonstrators?The fruit has, in fact, served in Palestinian iconography for decades, often being used as a stand-in for the Palestinian flag, because, when cut open, the fruit displays the flag's colors of red, white, black and green. It also is a popular fruit grown locally by Palestinians.There's a second, practical reason that the watermelon is used: Displays of the Palestinian flag frequently have been banned or restricted.
QuoteCNN analysis: Video suggests IDF might have rearranged weaponry at Al-Shifa prior to news crew visitsAn Israel Defense Forces video on November 15 showing a tour of Hamas weaponry found at Al-Shifa hospital shows less weaponry at the scene than in later footage filmed by international news crews, indicating the weaponry may have been moved or placed there prior to news crews arriving. CNN compared footage published by the IDF online with footage taken by Fox News, which was granted access to the site in the hours afterwards. IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus leads the tour in the IDF video and a watch on his arm shows the time to be 13:18. Fox News foreign correspondent Trey Yingst later visits the scene when it is dark. He says in his report it is "the middle of the night." Yingst is shown a bag located behind an MRI machine inside the hospital with two AK-47 guns visible on top of it. However, the IDF video filmed earlier shows only one AK-47 gun. It is unclear where the second AK-47 gun came from and why it is not visible in the earlier IDF clip. In the intervening hours, the IDF also posted online a photo of the weaponry purportedly found at Al-Shifa hospital. The WhatsApp file name for this photo indicates it was taken at 17:35; this places it after the IDF tour of the MRI compound but almost certainly before the Fox News crew arrive. It is possible the weaponry was removed from the scene and replaced prior to the news crews arriving. However this does not explain why more guns are visible when the press arrive than in the original IDF video. The BBC was also granted access to the hospital the following day, November 16, and two AK-47 guns are still visible on top of the bag inside the MRI room. Israeli military responds: The IDF told CNN the discrepancy between the military's own video and the BBC footage was "due to the fact that more weaponry and terrorist assets were discovered throughout the day." "Suggestions that the IDF is manipulating the media are incorrect," it added. "We are acting with full transparency whilst maintaining the safety of our troops and operational readiness."This post has been updated with the IDF's response to questions about the videos.
QuoteAccording to a police source, an investigation of the incident also indicates that an IDF combat helicopter that arrived at the scene from the Ramat David base fired at the terrorists, apparently hitting some of the revellers who were there. According to police, 364 people were killed at the festival.

QuoteWithout entering into discussing the accuracy of the figures released by the health ministry in Gaza, which are regarded by UN agencies as reliable, he said that "what is clear is that we have had in a few weeks thousands of children killed."Latest reports from health authorities indicate that more than 13,000 civilians in total have died in the enclave since the 7 October terror attacks by Hamas, and subsequent Israeli offensive. "This is what matters. We are witnessing a killing of civilians that is unparalleled and unprecedented in any conflict since I have been Secretary-General."
Quote"For the avoidance of doubt, this episode was filmed in March. The mascot is one of many chosen by the team during the course of the series and is one of their favourite animals."The jacket worn by one of the contestants was navy blue, orange, pink and green, bought from a High Street retailer. It has no connection to any flag."
