Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman appears to blame Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the descent into conflict with Hamas and the way the current round of violence is playing out.

Interviewed on Channel 12, the former Netanyahu ally turned opponent says the tensions of recent weeks didn’t need to unfold this way, “so you have to ask, what is the [Israeli] strategic goal?”

Liberman then answers his own question:

“The strategic goal of this round of conflict is to improve Netanyahu’s status among the Israeli public, in order to drag us to fifth elections… So long as the mandate to form a government is with Yair Lapid, Netanyahu will try to drag out the conflict.”

There’s never been so weak an Israeli cabinet, Liberman adds, accusing Netanyahu of manipulating all the ministers.

From an Israeli security perspective, Liberman says the conflict has to end with Hamas disarming as part of an arrangement to allow economic aid into Gaza, and with the return of the bodies of 2 fallen soldiers held by Hamas. If not, all the fighting will have been for nothing, he says.

“Hamas started this conflict, Hamas for the first time created an internal front against us inside Israel, Hamas has taken control of the Palestinian street; it is wiping out Fatah,” he says.

During the interview, he says the Hamas rockets were financed by the money Netanyahu has allowed into Gaza.

He also calls Netanyahu a “Hamas collaborator,” saying the premier and the Gaza-ruling terror group are the only two factors that have an interest in the hostilities continuing.

Topaz Luk, Netanyahu’s digital media advisor, takes to Twitter in response, calling Liberman a “disgusting and repulsive man.”

Putin told Netanyahu Russia could declare war on Israel amid Palestine row

VLADIMIR PUTIN told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu their two countries could have found themselves in a state of war as tensions with Palestine built up to today’s crisis in Gaza.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Friday that the current escalation between Israel and Palestine poses a direct threat to Russia’s security. During a meeting with the Russian Security Council, Putin suggested discussing the situation in Jerusalem and Gaza Strip prior to the agreed agenda. Tensions have been running high in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood of East Jerusalem since an Israeli court ordered the eviction of Palestinian families, which was later delayed.

Netanyahu: No timeframe for end of Gaza fighting, ‘we’re not standing with a stopwatch’

Briefing foreign diplomats on the efforts to end the fighting in Gaza, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says: “We’re not standing with a stopwatch. We are taking care of the operation’s objectives.”

No timeframe can be announced for an end to the armed conflict, Netanyahu says.

Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi also speaks, saying that the recently announced International Criminal Court war crimes investigation against the Jewish state will prevent Israel from advancing trust-building steps with the Palestinians.

How quickly is the Indian variant spreading in YOUR area? Interactive map reveals how mutant strain is now dominant in 23 towns

Uniformed Troops Go To Bars and 7-Elevens In Dallas To Inject Younger People with Bioweapon Shots

For much of the past month national media has been replete with headlines decrying “vaccine hesitancy” as coronavirus infection rates continue on the decline. Amid dire “warnings” this may “hinder” herd immunity goals, local and federal health agencies are busy pouring vast resources into vaccine-promoting ad campaigns. “The United States has a surplus of coronavirus vaccine doses on its hands, and long gone are the days when people waited hours to get jabbed. Dwindling demand has forced governors and mayors to get creative,” The Washington Post observed this week.

But one initiative in Dallas County in Texas is going far beyond anything we’ve seen thus far, and as many on social media have observed, it is downright creepy and bizarre in its brazenly coercive optics. Texas has long been fully opened and bars and restaurants are now packed, but vaccine sites are not, apparently. So naturally Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) thought it would be a good idea to go to the bars with the vaccines… along with uniformed US Army National Guard soldiers.
