Yes, Joe Biden’s mind is a problem. So is his cold heart towards Palestinians
  • Why blame an article and not the Democrats for keeping this unfit for any job - to say the least - candidate? Especially if we take into consideration Trump's popularity. There is still time to remove Biden, the problem is that I don't see the will. Under these circumstances, I would say that if Trump gets reelected it's on the Democrats, not the press. And the whole world will suffer the consequences.

    Ex-dictator Alberto Fujimori announces his candidacy for the Peruvian presidency

    >Keiko Fujimori announced on social media that her father, 85-year-old former dictator Alberto Fujimori, will be the presidential candidate in the 2026 elections for the political party Popular Force. “My father and I have talked and decided together that he will be the [presidential] candidate,” said the founder of Popular Force.

    >Alberto Fujimori was sentenced in 2009 to 25 years in prison for human rights violations and embezzlement. Former President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski granted him a pardon in 2017 due to the former president’s alleged poor health. However, in 2018 the Judiciary annulled the humanitarian pardon and Fujimori returned to prison. Despite this, in December 2018, Peru’s Constitutional Court allowed him to be released from prison through a reinstatement of the previous humanitarian pardon.

    >Several experts claim that the former dictator’s participation would be not be permitted under Peruvian law.

    >However, other experts fear that the law could be interpreted in such a way that Fujimori could be a candidate.

    www.wsws.org President Milei rides tank in Argentine independence day parade

    Milei’s agenda echoes the “National Reorganization Process” (<em>el Proceso</em>) initiated by Argentina’s murderous military dictatorship.

    President Milei rides tank in Argentine independence day parade

    >On Tuesday July 9, Argentine President Javier Milei attended a military parade in Buenos Aires, Argentina marking the 208th anniversary of Argentina’s independence from the Spanish monarchy in 1816. He had also attended the anniversary in Tucuman of the declaration of independence which was issued on the same day in 1816 in that northwestern Argentine city. > >Both events were staged amid the Milei administration’s escalating offensive against the working class. This has taken a more and more concrete form as the regime maps out Milei’s version of a new “National Reorganization Process,” the official name adopted by the military dictatorship which ruled Argentina following a CIA-backed coup in 1976 for its Nazi-inspired agenda.

    >In January, Milei presided over a restructuring of the armed forces command, retiring 22 generals and creating a “unified logistic command” in which the military would play a direct role internally, as part of the country’s repressive apparatus, not just combatting drug trafficking and alleged terrorist attacks, but patrolling borders and repressing workers and students. > >These changes, together with the upgrading of military equipment are considered essential as part of the government’s declared aim of becoming a “global partner” of the US-led NATO alliance.

    >The document, known as the May Pact, was signed by 18 governors (out of 23), the mayor of the city of Buenos Aires, and by Milei himself. None of the signers, except for Milei, belong to Milei’s political party. No matter, Peronists, Radicals and members of other right-wing bourgeois parties joined in endorsing the Pact. > >Its ten points include: the sanctity of private property; slashing public spending; tax and tariff reforms “to simplify the lives of all Argentines” and promote trade; reduction in government subsidies to the provinces; “modern” labor and pension reforms; and unrestricted international trade to make Argentina a “player in the world market” once again. At the request of some of the governors, an additional point was added that ensures and “a useful and modern” educational system for all primary and secondary schools.

    EU hard-right parties to back von der Leyen after ‘intense’ meeting
  • That's my understanding for the Greens. Not so sure for Socialists & Democrats (S&D) tho. As mentioned in the posted article:

    Fratelli d’Italia’s opposition to the Green Deal puts von der Leyen on collision course with two pro-EU coalition partners – the Greens and EU socialists – who want the green flagship legislation to remain intact.

    I mean I haven't spotted an article which claims that S&D changed their position. If you have a relevant one could you please share?

  • Biden says 'I'm Palestine's biggest supporter' and a Zionist
  • Just to clarify that a person can be Jewish and be against Zionism. These two terms are not synonyms.

    Jewish Voice for Peace have a great article on the topic and it includes the following statements:

    Jewish Voice for Peace is guided by a vision of justice, equality and freedom for all people. We unequivocally oppose Zionism because it is counter to those ideals.

    While it had many strains historically, the Zionism that took hold and stands today is a settler-colonial movement, establishing an apartheid state where Jews have more rights than others.

    Palestinian dispossession and occupation are by design. Zionism has meant profound trauma for generations, systematically separating Palestinians from their homes, land, and each other. Zionism, in practice, has resulted in massacres of Palestinian people, ancient villages and olive groves destroyed, families who live just a mile away from each other separated by checkpoints and walls, and children holding onto the keys of the homes from which their grandparents were forcibly exiled.

  • On one hand, I guess you're right and this is why I thought of including the date in the title.

    On the other hand, it is quite relevant to this community and to the United Nations' International Seabed Authority (ISA) council meetings that start to my understanding today (July 15th) to consider new rules allowing firms to extract minerals from the ocean floor, despite mounting concerns about the economic and environmental risks. [Reuters, isa.org]

    So I thought it's worth posting it.

  • U.S. Aid to Israel in Four Charts
  • TIL

    the Ronald Reagan administration banned transfers of cluster munitions to Israel for several years in the 1980s after it determined that Israel had used them on civilian targets during its invasion of Lebanon.

  • Israeli defence minister flies to US for ‘critical’ talks on Gaza and Lebanon
  • Gallant’s visit came as Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, repeated his claim that the Biden administration was presiding over a “dramatic drop” in arms shipments to Israel in recent months, a charge that has angered US officials, who have described it as “perplexing”.

    What's that claim of “dramatic drop” in arms shipments?

    In the following article I see a dramatic increase. In the budget at least.

    U.S. Aid to Israel in Four Charts - Council on Foreign Relations

    Since the start of Israel's war with Hamas on October 7, 2023, the United States has enacted legislation providing at least $12.5 billion in military aid to Israel, which includes $3.8 billion from a bill in March 2024 (in line with the current MOU) and $8.7 billion from a supplemental appropriations act in April 2024.

    Am I missing something or Israel bluntly lying again?

    [Edit: Within the link above there is another link and the section with the title "What's paused". It looks like Biden paused 1 shipment to my understanding]

  • Israel ready for ‘all-out war’ in Lebanon
  • Right now it’s just some tough talk from both sides

    How do you know that? The Zionist settler colonialist side has been doing Genocide for the past 8-9 months, this is not as you say

    Just another day in the Middle East.

    And like Hitler, Netanyahu is unable to stop. And unlike Hitler he is not fighting and loosing battles. When Hitler started loosing in the front, part of his entourage tried to talk him out of it, without success. This is why, there was even an attempt to kill him from inside the Nazi party.

    Netanyahu on the other hand, is not loosing battles since he is just bombing and starving people, while being supported in all possible ways by the US and most of the west. Why should he stop now? The Zionist plan of eliminating or displacing all Palestinians is working fine so far.

    Netanyahu is so pumped up he could easily invade Lebanon. Also Israel has attacked Lebanon twice and got defeated twice in a humiliating way. Last time was in 2006, meaning not that long ago. This is why Netanyahu has such a beef with Hezbollah. I'm afraid that Netanyahu has been given so much support and leverage from the West, he's about to start an actual war with Lebanon.

  • Armenia recognises Palestinian statehood, says Armenian foreign ministry
  • They also know what collaborating with the Nazis is like.

    I haven't heard about this before, so I can't argue about it at this point.

    Then you say:

    So I don’t think Armenia’s decision will have much of an effect.

    How you managed to draw this conclusion from your previous statement, is a mystery to me.

    And since you mentioned Nazi collaborations, I'll say the following. I noticed that the sources you provided the one is Zionist and the other Polish, and both collaborated with Nazis for sure.

    Zionist-Nazi Collaboration and the Holocaust-A Historical Aberration? Lenni Brenner Revisited - Edinburgh University Press

    How Zionists collaborated with the Nazis, in conversation with Tony Greenstein | EI Podcast

    we speak with activist and blogger Tony Greenstein, a veteran of the Palestine solidarity movement in the UK, about his new book "Zionism During the Holocaust: The Weaponization of Memory in the Service of State and Nation."

    Collaboration in German-occupied Poland - wiki

  • Armenia recognises Palestinian statehood, says Armenian foreign ministry
  • Armenians know what genocide means.

    So it looks that the State of Palestine is recognized as a sovereign state by 147 of the 193 member states of the United Nations. Hope I'm counting correctly and didn't leave out a country, cause it looks like the relevant wiki page [International recognition of the State of Palestine] has not yet been updated. Not even for Ireland's recognition of Palestine and that happened last month. Soon I hope.

    For me the question remains. What could make the remaining white colonialists and Zionist settler colonialists change their minds and finally recognize Palestine, so that a 2-state solution is implemented.

  • Why pick on us? Cyprus perplexed by Hezbollah threats
  • Why, exactly, do you think that the country Cyprus is responsible for RAF Akrotiri?

    Decolonization processes are difficult. For Cyprus this process started in 1959, if I remember correctly. Within these processes having governments that are in favor of western imperialism does not help towards the ousting western military bases. I'm not saying no genuine effort too place during all these decades. Also, many people have been out on the streets for this, but among Cypriots in reality there is no consensus on the matter since many want to keep all ties with the UK.

    [Edit: I have not mentioned how much UK does not want to leave those military bases since it was not part of the question]
