  • It comes as the White House presses Israel to scale back its military ops in Gaza
  • Israel‘s defence minister Yoav Gallant this morning outlined a plan for the future of Gaza as he announced Israeli forces would shift to a scaled-down ‘new combat approach’ in the next phase of the conflict.

    Under the loosely defined plan, Israel would keep total security control of the Palestinian enclave while an as yet undefined, Israeli-guided Palestinian body would handle day-to-day administration and governance.

    Gallant also said a multinational conglomerate, including the United States, would oversee the rebuilding of devastated infrastructure in a document entitled a ‘Vision for Phase 3’ of the war.

    His office said the phase had not yet begun, and the ideas were Gallant’s alone and were not official policy, which would have to be set by Israel’s war and security cabinets.

    But Gallant is a member of both cabinets, and his plans were issued ahead of US Secretary of State Antony Blinken‘s talks in Israel and other countries in the region this weekend, suggesting they are likely to form some part of a future official policy.

    It comes as Washington continues to press Israel to shift to lower-intensity military operations in Gaza that more precisely target Hamas after nearly three devastating months of bombardment and ground assaults.

    Israel’s campaign in Gaza has killed more than 22,400 people, more than two-thirds of them women and children, according to the Health Ministry in the Hamas-run territory.



RELATED: Son of Abducted Imam: Palestinians in Gaza Want Hamas Gone

Published January 5, 2024

The son of an imam in Gaza who was abducted by Hamas for refusing to preach its propaganda says that ordinary Palestinians want the terrorist organization to be defeated and to disappear from their lives.

Ala Mohammed Mushtaha, writing in The Free Press, says that Gazans are not free to express their real views until, “ironically, when there is fighting, Hamas goes underground, and people can be more vocal about how Hamas has ruined our lives.”

He says:

People are starting to publicly violate the laws, rules, dictates, and orders of Hamas. They are openly cursing Hamas and its leaders in the streets and markets, and ignoring the directives of the few Hamas officials and police still above ground. They have caused so much damage, it’s undeniable. They’ve imposed themselves on our society, on my father, for too long. We’re all paying the price. People want freedom. We hope deeply that this war will end, and that Hamas will end with it.

I don’t know where my father is. I don’t know if I will ever see him alive again. My hope in telling this story to the public, and putting my name to it, is to somehow offer my father a measure of protection. Hamas may wish to release him and show the world that they would never harm an admired mosque preacher. God alone knows the future, but what I know is that, under no circumstances, would my father want to become a propaganda tool.

Published January 5, 2024

A community that was attacked during Hamas’ Oct. 7 assault into southern Israel says one of its residents, who was taken hostage, has died in captivity. The Kibbutz Nir Oz community did not give a cause of death Friday for Tamir Adar, 38.

Of some 250 people captured during Hamas’ attack, around 80 were taken from Nir Oz alone, out of a population of around 400. The Israeli government says militants are still holding 113 hostages. Hamas has said it will not release any more hostages until Israel ends its military offensive and withdraws from Gaza. Israel has vowed to crush the militant group and return all the captives.

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant says several thousand Hamas fighters remain in northern Gaza, where entire neighborhoods have been blasted into rubble. Heavy fighting is also underway in central Gaza and the southern city of Khan Younis, where Israeli officials say Hamas’ military structure is still largely intact.

Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack from Gaza into southern Israel killed around 1,200 people, and some 250 others were taken hostage. Israel’s air, ground and sea assault in Gaza has killed more than 22,400 people, two-thirds of them women and children, according to the Health Ministry in the Hamas-ruled territory. The count does not differentiate between civilians and combatants.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
