UK foreign secretary Cameron: 'clear the Israelis are making a decision to act'
Speaking to reporters in Israel, the UK’s foreign secretary David Cameron has said “It’s clear the Israelis are making a decision to act,” and that “We hope they do so in a way that does as little to escalate this as possible.”

Reuters reports he also said that the UK wanted to see new sanctions Iran, saying “They need to be given a clear unequivocal message by the G7.”

He said he was in Jerusalem to “show solidarity after that appalling attack by Iran”, saying:

It’s right to have made our views clear about what should happen next, but it’s clear the Israelis are making a decision to act. We hope they do so in a way that does as little to escalate this as possible. And in a way that, as I said yesterday, is smart as well as tough. But the real need is to refocus back on Hamas, back on the hostages, back on getting the aid in, back on getting a pause in the conflict in Gaza.
While in Israel Cameron is expected to meet prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders, as well as visiting the occupied West Bank. Cameron will then travel from the Middle East on to the G7 foreign ministers meeting in Italy.

From your article
One of the lesser known parts of this story in Western public discourse generally, but more pertinently within activist spaces, is that the US empire is threatening to punish South Africa for bringing this much needed case against Israel. Republican Representative John James and Democratic Representative Jared Moskowitz introduced in early February the US-South Africa Bilateral Relations Review Act in the United States House of Representatives. This legislation would require a full review of the relationship between the US and South Africa on the baseless and spurious grounds that South Africa is supporting “terrorism”.

I saw this a while back and forgot to post the links. The article is from March 1st

Random streamer (?) Destiny is another one of these social media nincompoops who have tried and failed, to engage in mature conversations regarding the Gaza genocide. You may have seen him in some clips taken from a debate he had with Norman Finklestein.


Wellll he’s been found to be messaging underaged kids and is attempting to flee to, you get guessed it, the hub of pedos- Israel!

Excerpt,

The incidents under review mostly took place in the West Bank and occurred before Hamas October.7 attack on Israel. They include reports of extrajudicial killings by the Israeli Border Police; an incident in which a battalion gagged, handcuffed and left an elderly Palestinian American man for dead; and an allegation that interrogators tortured and raped a teenager who had been accused of throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails.

Miscalculation Leads to Escalation as Israel and Iran Clash
Israeli officials say they didn’t see a strike on a high-level Iranian target in Syria as a provocation, and did not give Washington a heads-up about it until right before it happened.



Excerpt,

Planning for the Israeli strike in Syria started two months earlier, two Israeli officials said. The target was Mohammad Reza Zahedi, the commander for Syria and Lebanon of Iran’s elite Quds Force, a branch of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

About a week beforehand, on March 22, the Israeli war cabinet approved the operation, according to internal Israeli defense records that summarized preparations for the strike and were viewed by The New York Times. The Israeli military did not comment on the internal assessment.

Those records also outlined the range of responses from Iran that the Israeli government expected, among them small-scale attacks by proxies and a small-scale attack from Iran. None of the assessments predicted the ferocity of the Iranian response that actually occurred.
