Major Western powers have reacted almost indifferently to the formation of the New Israeli government. The United States, Israel’s-guardian-ally, said it was looking forwards to working with the returning veteran Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu.
In a telephone call to Netanyahu, ostensibly to congratulate him on the swearing-in of his new coalition government, President Biden half-heartedly reaffirmed U.S. commitment to a two-state solution for the Palestinian issue. However, it is absolutely clear that this type of political settlement is irreversibly dead given the intensive Jewish colonization of the West Bank, which has left no room for establishing a credible, sovereign and territorially-contiguous Palestinian state worthy of the name.
Biden’s helpless disenchantment with Israel
The apparently helpless disenchantment of the Biden administration with the ascendency of Talmudic fascism to the helm of power in Israel shows that the indecisive US approach to the Palestinian crisis has effectively reached a dead-end, as Israeli recalcitrance is thwarting all American peace efforts in the region.
Predictably, Just a few hours after his telephone conversation with Biden, Netanyahu wasted no time telling the American President that Israel is not occupying anyone’s land and that 100% of the West Bank was an exclusively Jewish territory!
On Sunday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken reiterated the same message during a conversation with the new Israeli foreign Minister Eli Cohen. However, there was a general agreement that the discrepancy over the two-state solution wouldn’t impact the core alliance between Israel and the U.S.

Also on Sunday, a group of Jewish Americans held a rare protest vigil outside the Israeli embassy in Washington, calling for peace, democracy and equality. The protesters who are members of the American branch of Peace Now called the current Israeli government racist, homophobic and promoting apartheid.
Europe and Israel: Ambivalence and hypocrisy
Biden reportedly remained quite reticent as he obviously lacked the will and inclination to challenge Netanyahu’s insolence or confront his characteristic intransigence. A careful reading into Biden’s behaviour shows that his administration will never seek to pressure Israel to give genuine concessions for peace. Instead, he is more likely to continue cajoling and coaxing the increasingly irrelevant PA to wait for a miracle that would never happen
The European Union issued a general statement, calling on “all parties” to exercise self-restraint and refrain from escalation.
Germany, whose current chancellor got visibly mad this past year when visiting PA President Mahmoud Abbas used the word holocaust to describe mounting Israeli atrocities against Palestinians, issued a rare criticism of Israel after Public Security Minister Ben Gvir paid a provocative visit to the holy Islamic sanctuary, the Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. The visit drew a wave of criticisms and condemnations from many quarters around the world, although it was not expected that the new Israeli government would pay the slightest attention to these negative reactions.
Self-Censored western media refrain from calling the spade by its name
The bulk of the international, especially western media described the new Israeli government in virtually innocuous terms, calling it, inter alia, “most rightest, most nationalist and most-extremist.” However, it is amply clear that these banal labels served as euphemistic epithets intended to mitigate the brutal ugliness of the new Judeo-Nazi government, headed by Benyamin Netanyahu.
As expected, some newspapers of record, like New York Times, Washington Post, Le Mond, and Times of London, meticulously refrained from using the term “fascist” as if three were still doubts as to whether the use of that epithet to describe the new Israeli government was too hyperbolic and grossly unfair.
We must call the spade by its name
Undoubtedly, this monstrous government already deserves the strongest condemnations from every honest man and woman in this world. The world doesn’t have to wait weeks and months to ascertain the true credentials of that evil entity.
The Israeli media has already published appalling excerpts of statements by the government of murderers, thugs and child-killers, who seem quite convinced that the tight Jewish domination of the American government, including Congress, grants them a perfect right to carry out a partial or full holocaust against millions of Palestinians, languishing under Talmudic cruelty and barbarianism.
Some Israeli PR experts have warned that statements about “Jewish domination” in America could boomerang on Israel and embarrass Israel’s supporters in the U.S. Another point of possible contention between the U.S. and the new Israeli government is the venomous aversion by the Haredi ultra-religious parties such as Shas and Agudat Yisrael towards Jesus Christ. Toxic anti-Jesus literature, like Hesronot Shas, is taught widely in Talmudic colleges all over Israel.
Viewed as the worst and most racist, most fascist and murderous Israeli government ever, the new rulers of Israel are expected to put into effect a plethora of racist laws including the following:
- Passing new laws in the Knesset that would seriously reduce or even revoke legal punishments for Jews convicted of murdering non-Jews. Needless to say, Successive Israeli governments have been observing, de facto, such laws for decades. However, Israeli official agencies used to indulge in such crimes behind the curtain, obviously for public relations purposes. Human rights groups operating in the West Bank have documented numerous cases where innocent Palestinians were murdered in cold blood by Jewish settler terrorists, and the perpetrators were not even interrogated by the police, let alone imprisoned or even arrested.
- Israel is expected to instate the “death penalty” against Palestinians convicted of killing Jews, including heavily-armed Israeli soldiers. Of course, the capital punishment doesn’t apply to Jews convicted of murdering non-Jews, including children.
- According to cultic Talmudic laws the religious parties would submit for ratification, Jewish doctors may refuse to provide medical care to non-Jewish patients, or even saving their lives on Shabat (Saturday). Thus a non-Jew injured in a car accident on the Jewish Sabbath would have to bleed to death as emergency services offering first aid to Goyem contradict the Jewish religious law.
- There are certain Talmudic laws that do not recognize the sheer humanity of non-Jews in general. It is uncertain whether Netanyahu’s coalition partners will seek to activate such manifestly laws. In Some cases, the ultimate ramifications of such laws could be quite embarrassing for Jews everywhere.
- Israel is adopting the desecration and attempted Judaizing of the Aqsa Mosque as official policy. In the Past, Israeli governments blamed fringe fanatic groups for “acts of agitation and provocation” at the Haram el-Sharif of Jerusalem . Now, however, these fringe groups are more or less in control the Israeli government.
The Holocaust didn’t start with Auschwitz
For those who might accuse me of being unduly hasty in passing a judgment on the new government that is less than one-week old, I say it is you who are being blinded by your gullibility, naivety and ignorance about that government.
I must remind the world that the holocaust did not start with Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Dachau, Mauthausen, etc. These death concentration camps and the sheer evil they came to represent were only the final or ultimate outcome of Nazi policies. Thus, the holocaust was by no means a huge winter storm occurring on a beautiful, clear, sunny day.
The Holocaust started much earlier, with the sort of things occurring these days before our eyes in Palestine, like the publication of Mein Kampf (Torat ha’Melekh), the Nazi-Citizenship aw of 1936-37 (the Israeli Nationality Law of 2o9), Kristalnacht (settler vandalism in Nablus, elsewhere),! So, should the world give people like Ben Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich the benefit of the doubt in order to enable the4m perfect their Holocaustal designs against a people who rely mostly on the goodwill of people like you and me to save them from the gloomy clouds of Israeli, Zionist-Jewish Nazism flying over the horizons?
The Russian invasion of Ukraine: Will more states seek to acquire Nuclear weapons?
The Russian invasion of Ukraine is prompting many states around the world to reconsider their national defence strategies. Governments have privately and openly voiced their apprehension about the growing fragility of the post-WWII international order, especially the utter inability of the UN and its Security Council to prevent powerful hegemonic nations, such as Russia, from attacking and occupying and annexing large territories of less powerful neighbours, such as Ukraine.
Some leaders and diplomats have warned that, in light of the clear impotence of the UN in tackling the Ukrainian crisis, and in the absence of a nuclear deterrent of their own, some vulnerable non-nuclear states will be forced to either acquire Nuclear weapons to achieve a semblance of Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) vis-à-vis potential predators or seek a military alliance with some established nuclear powers for the same purpose.
Zelensky: “Ukraine will be like a Big Israel”
Speaking to reporters a few days ago, Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told reporters that post-war Ukraine would be like “a big Israel.”
He didn’t clarify what he exactly meant by drawing the Israeli analogy.
However, it was amply clear that he was alluding to the contemplated acquisition of a sizeable Nuclear weapon, like that of Israel, in order to deter a future possible Russian invasion. Ukraine had given up its Nuclear weapons to Russia following the downfall of the former Soviet Union.
However, experts argue that Ukraine could fairly quickly renew its Nuclear weapon since the country already possesses the technical and scientific infrastructure which it inherited from the Soviet era.
Hence, Ukraine wouldn’t have to begin from scratch in case it decided to renew its nuclear weapon program. Moreover, Ukraine could start producing enriched uranium for military purposes in a few days, depending on the decision of the political leadership. Shortly after the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine 11 months ago, Ukraine’s defence officials voiced their deep remorse for having given up their former nuclear arsenal. In light, it is almost certain that the current leadership in Kyiv will decide to revive the nuclear option as soon as an opportune time arises.
Medvedev: Russian defeat in Ukraine would trigger a nuclear war
This weak, former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev warned NATO of nuclear war if Russia was defeated in Ukraine.
Medvedev, an ally of Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin, warned that a Russian defeat in Ukraine could trigger a nuclear war. “The defeat of a nuclear power in a conventional war may trigger a nuclear war,” Medvedev, who serves as deputy chairman of Putin’s powerful security council, reportedly said in a post on the Telegraph.
“Nuclear powers have never lost major conflicts on which their fate depends,”.
Warning should be taken seriously
Undoubtedly, Medvedev’s warnings contain an important element of rhetorical sabre-rattling and psychological warfare. However, this writer believes the West ought to take the warnings quite seriously.
There are sufficient reasons that should make us think twice before dismissing the above doomsday warnings as hot air. Indeed, a Russian defeat in Ukraine would have far-reaching global consequences and ramifications.
Indeed, a decisive and humiliating Russian defeat in Ukraine would very likely be the most important strategic international game-changer not only since the collapse of the former Soviet Union in 1989 but also since the 1917 Bolshevik revolution in Russia. Russia would morph into a boiling cauldron of anger and furious indignation.
Thus, the demand for the use of nuclear weapons to avert a possible Russian defeat in Ukraine would gain massive popularity throughout Russia. The galvanization of Russia’s 145 million population would be the penultimate step leading to the kremlin’s decision to press the nuclear button.
Nuclear is futile if not used when needed
After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Advocates for the nuclear option would convincingly argue that nuclear weapons would lose their raison detre if they failed to protect the possessor country, the motherland, when needed most, e.g., when the country faces the prospect of defeat and humiliation in war. The question of who is the aggressor and who is the victim would be almost irrelevant in such an atmosphere. Moreover, the US, which used the first ever and last nuclear weapon against Japan in 1945, would not be in a moral position to lecture Russia on the evils of using nuclear weapons.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine: Gigantic Dilemma
A Russian victory or defeat in Ukraine would cause the current international order, instated after WWII, to collapse. A decisive Russian defeat in Ukraine, which seems unlikely at least now, would likely irreversibly paralyze or effectively terminate the UN and its Security Council. The UN would virtually become completely at the US beck and call.
On the other hand, a decisive Russian victory, which is also unlikely, would turn the international order upside down and transform the world into a real jungle.
A Russian victory would probably encourage certain states to emulate Russia and carry out naked aggressions of their own against militarily weaker foes or neighbouring states. Certain possible scenarios come to the mind in this regard.
China might be emboldened to invade and occupy Taiwan if Russia emerged as winner.
Israel might well decide to seize the opportunity and wage an all-out war on Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip for the purpose of liquidating the Palestinian issue once and for all. In the process, Israel might carry out huge massacres of Palestinians and embark on the demolition of Islamic holy places in Jerusalem especially the Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock. Moreover, Israel might also decide to carry out massive airstrikes on Iranian cities or even drop nuclear bombs under the rubric of destroying the Iranian nuclear program and preventing the recurrence of the Holocaust!
Other possible scenarios would probably include a possible all-out war by North Korea against South Korea, and a naked aggression by Russian-backed Serbia against Bosnia and Kosovo.
I am not a prophet of doom and gloom, but it is always safer to assume that the worse could happen. There is no doubt that a new world order would appear after the end of the Russian invasion of Ukraine regardless of the outcome of the war . There is also little doubt that the post-Ukraine war will witness more military and strategic polarization than ever. However, the gravest problem facing the post-war world order would, almost certainly, take the form of many states seeking actively to acquire nuclear weapons for their own national defence. Therefore, the nuclear proliferation issue would be the number-1 problem facing the world, with the chances of a nuclear accident or miscalculation reaching terrifying levels. (end)
BBC’s Modi Documentary Rattles Modi Government
BCC recently released a documentary on India’s controversial right-wing Prime Minister Narendra Modi rattling Modi and his ruling party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The documentary’s first episode titled “India: The Modi Question” which was released in the UK on 17th January drew a sharp reaction from the Modi government.
Modi Government Blocks the Documentary in India
The Modi government moved swiftly to block the documentary in India. Proving right the critics of IT Rules, 2021, the Modi government’s Ministry of Information & Broadcasting invoked emergency powers under the IT Rules, 2021 to order YouTube to take down all the videos that had published the first episode of the documentary. Orders were also issued to Twitter to take down all the tweets that had posted the link to the documentary. Both YouTube and Twitter complied with the orders, removing all the posts and videos flagged by the government.
The government alleged that the documentary was found to be “undermining sovereignty and integrity of India, and having the potential to adversely impact India’s friendly relations with foreign states”, which allowed for the invocation of the emergency powers under the IT Rules, 2021. The government also alleged that the documentary questions the credibility of the Supreme Court of India and attempts to sow divisions among different communities while also making unsubstantiated allegations regarding the activities of foreign governments in India.
Earlier India’s External Affairs Ministry spokesperson dismissed the documentary as a “propaganda piece that lacks objectivity and reflects colonial mindset”. The spokesperson also questioned the timings of the release of the documentary.
The documentary’s first episode produced by the BBC tracks Modi’s “first steps into politics”- his association with the right-wing Hindu extremist organisation Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), his rise through the ranks of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and further his appointment as Chief Minister of the state of Gujarat in 2001 till 2014. As the Chief Minister of Gujarat, Modi’s involvement in and his response to a series of communal riots in 2002 remains a source of controversy.
The documentary highlights a previously unpublished report, obtained by the BBC from the British Foreign Office, which raises questions about Modi’s actions during the religious riots. The report claims that Modi was “directly responsible” for the “climate of impunity” that enabled the violence.
The report cited by the BCC was part of an inquiry ordered by the then foreign secretary Jack Straw. The reports say that “the extent of violence was much greater than reported” and “the aim of the riots was to purge Muslims from Hindu areas”.
Jack Straw is heard in the documentary saying, “these were very serious claims that Mr Modi had played a proactive part in pulling back police and in tacitly encouraging the Hindu extremists. That was a particularly egregious example of political involvement to prevent police from doing their job to protect the Hindus and the Muslims.”
Modi’s Role in Gujarat Riots of 2002
It is the documentary’s highlight of the Gujarat riots of 2002 that has rattled the Modi government.
The Gujarat riots of 2002 claimed the lives of more than 1,000 people. Most of those killed were Muslims. Modi is alleged to have instigated the riots and further prevented the police and the army from taking any action to stop the riots. Most of the reports published on the Gujarat riots by the Indian media as well as the international media point out Modi’s direct role in facilitating the riots. It has been claimed that Modi gave a free hand to Hindu extremists to kill Muslims and the aim was to purge Hindu localities of Muslims.
Modi has rejected these accusations. Further, in 2013 an investigation approved by the Indian Supreme Court absolved Mr. Modi of complicity in the rioting. Based on that finding, a court in the state of Gujarat found that there was insufficient evidence to prosecute him.
Action Taken by Foreign Countries against Modi
Like the above-cited British Foreign Office report, there were many countries that were convinced of Modi’s role in the killing of Muslims during the riots. Concerned countries acted against Modi at different levels.
Modi was banned entry into the U.S. for more than a decade for his role in the riots. In 2005, Modi became the only person ever to be denied a U.S. visa under the 1998 law on violations of religious freedom. The U.S. State Department invoked a little-known U.S. law passed in 1998 that makes foreign officials responsible for “severe violations of religious freedom” ineligible for visas. The ban on Modi’s travel to the U.S. was revoked by the Obama administration in 2014 after he became the prime minister of India.
A Permanent Stain on Modi’s Career
Modi may have achieved great things in his political career, but the stain of the Gujarat riots is permanent on his career.
Modi loves the camera. He loves advertising and branding himself. Modi puts his picture on everything. He loves hearing his voice. However, ever since he became the prime minister of India, he has never given an unscripted interview to the media. He has also never held a press conference in India or abroad. It has been claimed that Modi does not want difficult questions about his attitude towards the Muslim minority of India thrown at him.
When Modi became the prime minister of India, Indian liberals were hopeful that Modi had changed. They were wrong in their assessment that Modi as a prime minister would be inclusive. However, after Modi’s eight years as a prime minister now, he has not changed his attitude towards Muslims. As of now, Muslims are increasingly persecuted by his government.
This author highly recommends that you watch the BBC documentary on Modi. Its first episode has been released here (if you are outside the UK watch it here or use VPN). The next episode will be available on Tuesday, January 24, 2023, at 21:00.
19.4 Million Afghan Women Struggling to Survive Under Taliban
Women banned from schools and colleges. Women flogged in markets with dozens of spectators. Girls, as young as 15, mandated to wear complete body covering: These are the horrifying reality Afghan women are forced to live in every day.
Rules of Sharia on Every Moment
Women’s freedom of movement and access to their bodies continue to be restricted in Taliban-run Afghanistan. The draconian group imposed huge barriers on women’s even basic needs: health, education, migration, and expression, depriving thousands of many of their right to earn a livelihood.
Women in Afghanistan have already suffered the most significant losses due to the war and militarization. However, with the control of the Taliban over the nation, the future and dreams of Afghan women are collapsing drastically.
Afghan Women: The Future Looks Dark
The Taliban treat women and girls brutally, and they are forbidden from attending secondary and higher education. Migration and independent travel for women is prohibited. They are not even permitted to migrate or travel without a male chaperone. Girls as young as 13 are forced into marriage.
The Taliban administration has abolished the Ministry of Women Affairs in Afghanistan due to its extreme depravity. There are now no female cabinet members in the Afghan government, thereby ending political participation of 50% of the population.
Following the takeover of Afghanistan, the schools and colleges were forcibly compelled to enact new regulations. It includes gender-apartheid entrances and classrooms. Only female professors or older men can instruct female students. Additionally, the authorities closed the Madressa that solely taught female students.
The future of Afghan women appears bleak with such harsh restrictions and draconian rules. The local women have various aspirations. Young girls want to finish their education and pursue careers in large corporations. But at the moment, it looks gloomy and almost impossible for Afghan women.
Lost Careers & Starving Families
Women-founded business is facing the worst time under Taliban.
Women investors have left their positions or hired males to do their business Women entrepreneurs claim they have invested thousands of Afghanis in the previous government but are currently compelled to close their firms.
The current environment prevents women from freely engaging in small-scale business or employment. Even when women are the only source of income for their families, Afghan women no longer dare to start their businesses.
If these conditions persist, many Afghan families will go hungry.
In Afghanistan, the handicraft industry thrived before the Taliban’s leadership, giving thousands of women jobs. Clothing, goods, and handicraft products were exported to Australia and New Zealand.
However, after the Taliban seized control, the industry went bankrupt due to a policy that discriminated against women and flying restrictions that reduced trade and affected the business adversely.
Afghan Women’s Lives at risk
The women’s crisis in Afghanistan keeps escalating — the restrictions, limitations, and dictatorship have gone too far ahead.
Due to a shortage of healthcare services, Afghan women face significant difficulties. They are restricted from visiting doctors without a male companion, and in some cities, women are not allowed to visit male doctors while the number of female physicians in the nation is closing to nil.
Additionally, women and girls are denied access to healthcare, and reports even imply that they are subjected to assault with no means of fleeing.
The restriction of female students from secondary and higher education violates their right to education and limits female students from reaching their full potential.
Banning female students from getting an education increases child marriages, early pregnancy, abuse, and violence.
Almost every house headed or led by women has lacked sufficient food due to the rise in fuel, food prices, and no source of income. The situation has worsened due to the drought and the war in Ukraine. It is difficult to see women becoming beggars along with their children.
The current situation of Afghan women is deteriorating in the virtual prisoner environment. Taliban restrictions have made women’s financial hardships worse. The lives of Afghan women are seriously at stake, and many women feel it would be better if they had died in the war.
The Silver Line But a Long Way Ahead
UNICEF and NGOs are defending Afghan women and trying to help them as much as possible. The United Nations has repeatedly emphasized that it is committed to carrying out its mission in Afghanistan and promoting the rights of women and girls in the region.
UNFPA is enhancing its existence and helping women through Afghanistan socialism and is collaborating with national partners. UNICEF assumes responsibility for paying the teachers’ monthly salaries and providing them with the necessities for survival. UNFPA is also contributing its share to expand the provision of sexual and reproductive health services, again, for women in rural areas.
But it’s not enough, especially with Taliban banning female NGO employees from coming to work.
To rescue innocent women and children from this catastrophe, more social organizations must advance in light of their responsibility and the current state of Afghan women.
The Taliban should be put under pressure by international organizations and governments to fully implement gender equality and defend the human rights of all Afghan women and girls.
Organizations must quickly realize that women should be given the reins for recovery, peace, stability, and basic rights. Unless that is, the lives of Afghan women continue to deteriorate, and their dreams continue to collapse EVERY SINGLE DAY!
