Thank you Caitlin. It’s really important independent voices like yours keep going. The mainstream narrative is nothing short of nazism. Big money and big levers are being used to batter that narrative into justifying genocide. Whatever world they are trying to force into place, it cannot be one where genocide is acceptable.

"Israel's Savagery Is So Shocking It's Sometimes Hard To Take In" - shouldn't be hard if you consider Israel is a full blown Nazi state.

Judging by Ilan Pappe's "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine" all the various Jewish paramilitary groups acted just like SA - brownshirts - in Germany, or Azov etc in Ukraine. While doing Nakba especially, that is. All the Jewish communications and diary entries by Ben-Gurion read just like Hitler discussing and planning his European conquests.

Given that, what is there to be surprised at? And that applies to Ukraine 100% as Israel was nurturing it in all things evil.

Ain't it funny how The Rules Based International Order(tm) was bewailing supposed Russian war crimes but they can’t seem to bring themselves to make the most muted condemnation of apartheid Israel.

The mind simply does not want to believe what the eyes are seeing. That there are still humans on this planet utterly devoid of humanity, in the millions. And with the power to act on their disdain with impunity. We have failed Palestine and her children.

You have to recall, when the Azov brigade moved into Bucha after the Russian soldiers had left, they marched the Ukrainians who had worn the pro-Rus armband into the streets, and executed them.

Western media, to a person, deliberately repeated the lie it was the Russian forces who had done this.

Despite a moments thought, let alone any Journalist credibility, that would have revealed the opposite, the truth of the situation.

Israel expects the same coverage for their (war) crimes (against Humanity).

The Israeli Occupation Forces won't let food and fuel into Gaza City. This may decrease video and photographic evidence of their recent doings, by shutting down all electric generation and starving people out.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PCRS) said on Tuesday evening that the Israeli occupation forces prevented the entry of aid and fuel trucks into the northern Gaza Strip, the official Palestinian Wafa news agency reported, citing PCRS’s statement.

In the statement, PCRS affirmed that it attempted to bring in fuel trucks, and 31 humanitarian aid trucks containing food, water, and relief materials into Gaza City and the north, but the occupation forces stationed at the military checkpoint that separates the north of the Gaza Strip from its south, prevented the fuel trucks from entering.

It stressed that bringing in fuel trucks was aimed at enhancing the work of the Red Crescent ambulances operating in the northern Gaza Strip, warning that it has seven ambulances that will stop working due to the lack of fuel.

What a perfect example of the power of the Official Narrative. “The boy had to be shot because he was committing a crime!” (Celebrating the release of his People from prisoner)

I wish I could say that I actually enjoy your articles. While I am grateful for some honest reporting, what you have to say makes my head hurt and my stomach feel queasy. I think about all those parents losing their children and grandparents losing their grandchildren and children who lose everyone. I would much rather see a space alien or a leprechaun or something.

I have experienced every last thing you describe. How can this be happening ..and while she was so arrogant and self assured about dying for celebrating, i wish she had addressed the other executions taking place during the agreed cease fire. This child was not the only assassination.

I've lived through the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the depredations on the Native Americans, the War on Drugs (no, actually, it was a war on people), Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and so many wars that just came and went. The civil war in Lebanon, the Chechen War, Grenada, Panama, the bombing of Cambodia and Laos, Ukraine, Algeria, the Sahel ...

But I NEVER thought I would see real evil like the monsters in Israel. And my own country helping with the murders. Something in America started to die at the turn of this century. And the destruction seems to be accelerating. This is some Nazi shit.

Another great truthful article, only hope is the world (people) are waking up to the absolute atrocities being carried out by Israel, all supposedly in the name of "freedom" which is denied to the people of Gaza.

I am aware of Israeli savagery but I'm still shocked and I've never been more appalled

In the "News"

Israel is accusing Hamas of mistreatment of hostages because they lost 15 lbs in the last month. It was Israel who cut off electric,water food and has been bombing Gaza and hospitals to dust and denying any and all humanitarian aid into Gaza. US media ignores this.

NPR ran a news article which stated that Israel is just "defending" itself from the Oct 7 attack. Still? After 13000 dead and how many maimed for life? Wounded numbers are not reported. Israel is not "defending"itself.

Hamas stated (according to the"news " ) that if Israel didn't give advance warning about attacks they would kill hostages. So far the only hostages killed have been due to Israeli bombs. Hamas is now releasing hostages. Hamas is the only one keeping their word. Who and what do you believe?

The IDF and Zionists are worse than the German Nazis of WW2. Hamas can NEVER be completely eliminated. Israel is provoking a war in the Mideast against all Islamic Muslim people which the US will gladly join in as we slowly amass military power in the Mideast. As a nation we in the US are left guessing about the future while those in power have plans we are not privy to. Looking back over the past weeks should give any intelligent person a good indication of what the future holds and it is not a cheery one.

Americans are not sitting on their asses on this. They are being oppressed, repressed and jailed for protesting against US sanctioned genocide. The empire is in full control and the US citizens have lost any and all control over the government and their futures.

I sometimes feel almost selfish sitting safely in a home, in a place where war is not raging. When I think of Palestine, congo, Yemen, Syria and any of the 40 some places where conflict is raging. It's just so incredibly sad. And all these countries closing their doors to refugees. This world feels colder and just more violent than ever. It's sad. And yet we watch in horror, while our governments take part without our consent. It's all SO DYSTOPIAN! And here we have good people losing jobs in the US for opposing genocide. This is a broken world

I ask myself is there a motive for this genocidal savagery, and the answer I suspect is to bait the Arab world into a war involving the whole Middle East, especially targeting Iran?
