Sami Abu Shehadeh, a Palestinian member of Knesset, told Al Jazeera that the march represents a very fast deterioration of the majority of the Jewish population of Israel into fascism.

"We are talking about a society that is celebrating the occupation of another people," he said, speaking from the city of Jaffa.

Richard B. Spencer: The founder of alt-right presents racism in a chic new outfit | ECPS - June 28. 2021 |

Richard Bertrand Spencer is a well-groomed, well-educated advocate for the creation of a "white ethno-state" in North America for a "dispossessed white race." He has also called for "peaceful ethnic cleansing" to halt the "deconstruction" of what he describes as "white culture" and to achieve a "white homeland." Spencer has become the most recognizable public face of the white supremacist and nationalist movements. As an ardent white supremacist and ethnonationalist, Spencer says America belongs to white people, who he claims have higher average IQs than Hispanics and African Americans, and that the latter are genetically predisposed to crime. In Spencer's "America," Asians, Muslims, and Jews don't qualify as "white" either.

Sex on shabbat is specifically encouraged in the Talmud and some consider it to be a mitzvah -- or good deed.

Sex act on bat mitzvah Zoom stream renews questions about online Shabbat services | TOI |

It also points to potential risks in the use of streaming technology by Conservative synagogues, which are barred by the movement's religious law authorities from engaging with electronic devices on the Sabbath. In allowing the use of streaming on Shabbat in an emergency measure early in the pandemic, the movement's Jewish law committee stated that any streaming equipment should be "set it and forget it" -- teed up prior to Shabbat and not touched once it begins.

Meanwhile, at my synagogue: A couple begins having sex on Zoom during Bat Mitzvah services. Nobody would pick up the phone to put a stop to it because it was the sabbath so it went on for 45 minutes. Amazing.

Bullshitter-In-Chief ... bringing peace ☮️ ... remind me in his political career he succeeded once, I will bring half a dozen cases of warmongering.

Joe bringing fighter jets and more arms into the volatile region ... will he visit Iraq? What about Iran living under 42 years of inhumane sanctions ... perhaps Yemen where he too was responsible for many drone strikes (and cruise missiles) killing hundreds of civilians ... Pakistan where its sovereignty was violated ... stopping by in Libya and Syria where Joe and Hillary have caused immense suffering ...
Don't fool the World Joe, you are only interested in building military alliances to further increase the goal of Trump's MAGA ... annihilating the Russian Federation and China as Dutch Defense Minister Ollongren so triumphantly exposed when Rutte IV increased her budget by €5bn.

Actually the quote is merely from a play by Hanns Johst. He was a Nazi, but I've no idea whether the character in the play was.

... these statements are derived from those in the play Schlageter by Hanns Johst: "Wenn ich Kultur höre ... entsichere ich meinen Browning!" [Whenever I hear of culture... I release the safety-catch of my Browning!] (Act 1, Scene 1) The play was first performed in April 1933 for Hitler's birthday.

When becomes apartheid ethnic cleansing and a war crime?

UN experts alarmed by Israel High Court ruling on Masafer Yatta and risk of imminent forcible transfer of Palestinians | OHCHR |

Israel's decision to evict approximately 1,200 Palestinians from their homes in Masafer Yatta in the occupied West Bank may amount to a war crime, UN human rights experts said.

The decision to forcibly transfer the Palestinian residents is a serious breach of international humanitarian and human rights laws, and an independent and impartial investigation into the matter should be established, the experts said.

"By upholding this policy to drive Palestinians out of Masafer Yatta, the Israeli judicial system has given carte blanche to the Israeli Government to perpetuate the practice of systematic oppression against Palestinians," three UN special rapporteurs said in a joint statement.
