Conflicts of Interest: A ‘Ceasefire’ Has Been Reached, But the Israeli Occupation Continues

On Conflicts of Interest #113, Kyle Anzalone and Will Porter cover the ceasefire deal reached between the Israeli government and armed groups in Gaza. The agreement has held over several days and appears to have brought the eruption of violence to an end. All said and done, at least 248 Palestinians and 12 Israelis were killed throughout 11 days of fighting, which flattened residential areas across Gaza and saw thousands of rockets fired into Israeli cities. Under tight blockade, Gaza now returns to its status as the world’s largest open-air prison as Tel Aviv continues to expand Jewish-only settlements in the occupied West Bank.

US lawmakers have introduced a series of bills looking to repeal several Authorizations for the Use of Military Force (AUMFs) still on the books, including those passed in 1957, 1991 and 2002. While a promising development, the much more open-ended 2001 AUMF – which has been invoked for Terror War military action in at least 14 countries – has been left out of the recent push to rescind the authorizations.

Yemen’s Houthis have maintained their offensive into Marib province, the last major piece of territory in the country’s north controlled by the Saudi-backed government. Though fighting has reached a stalemate, the Biden administration continues to place all blame on the Houthis for the ongoing violence, ignoring their pleas to end their support for a Saudi blockade on Yemen’s ports.

  1. Apr 25, 2021 Let’s stop the RACIALIZATION of everyone and everything

    We are all children of God and are therefore family in the truest sense, no matter what our race or ethnicity. This is aloha. This is what our country and world need.

    1. I wish Tulsi Gabbard would be the POTUS. Biden, Trump, Bush ,Obama and Blair belong in a chain gang at the ICC and should be tied up next to each other.

      1. She rocks and this is why she does not get any traction in the fake news. Just like Ron Paul. I am use to viewing this for over 30 years.

        Jun 6, 2013 How Ron Paul Was Cheated Out Of Presidency

        A compilation of footage that shows how the establishment used illegal tactics to get Ron Paul out of the presidential running. Everything from bias to voter fraud. It makes us sick and we hope Ron Paul and his family have a bright future ahead.

        Have a great day Pinkprince!

    2. I agree with what you say(damn near always)but as an Atheist I really get tired of people telling me I’m a child of something I don’t believe in.

      1. Well, do not allow them to troll you. I am a man of God for only 13 years and apparently they are not really who they claim to be. Remind them of this biblical truth.

        This is what I am talking about. Jesus said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind.

        This is the greatest and the first commandment. And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. … Jesus’ response to the lawyer, however, would indicate otherwise.
