Will she now reconsider her support of Old Joe Biden and abetting of his corruption, in light of the fact that it was the Biden regime’s treason and fecklessness that enabled the Oct. 7 jihad massacre to happen? Don’t hold your breath.

“Major Democratic donor, Hunter Biden art buyer’s 3-year-old American relative kidnapped by Hamas,” by Madeleine Hubbard, Just The News, November 24, 2023:

Elizabeth Hirsh Naftali, a major Democratic donor well connected to the Biden administration, has been bringing attention to the hostages after her 3-year-old great-niece, a U.S. citizen, was orphaned and taken captive by Hamas terrorists on Oct. 7.

Hirsh Naftali is known for buying Hunter Biden’s artwork, visiting the White House more than a dozen times, and being appointed by President Joe Biden to a historical preservation commission.

Since her great-niece, Abigail Mor Idan was kidnapped from the kibbutz of Kfar Aza, Hirsch Nafti has become a vocal advocate for the hostages. Abigail is reportedly one of the approximately 50 hostages slated to be released starting Friday, according to The Times of Israel.

Hirsh Naftali expressed cautious optimism during a CNN interview Tuesday before the hostage deal solidified.

“I’m not a politician, I’m not a diplomat. I will believe it when I see them walk out,” she said. “Until then we just have to keep everything in check because it’s just too much of an emotional rollercoaster.”…

Turkey: 1,000 boats filled with Leftists head to Gaza to try to disrupt maritime trade coming into Israel

“Among the 1,000 vessels would be 313 boats filled with Russian activists, and 104 filled with Spanish activists…”

Once again, these self-righteous useful idiots have no idea what they’re enabling. Or if they do, it would be even worse.

“1,000 boats said set to leave Turkey for Gaza waters in new ‘Freedom Flotilla,’” by Gianluca Pacchiani, Times of Israel, November 21, 2023:

Approximately 1,000 boats will gather in Turkey on Wednesday before heading toward Gaza in an attempt to break the Israeli blockade and disrupt maritime trade coming into Israel during the war with Hamas, in an apparent repeat of similar attempts from over a decade ago.

In an interview with Turkish news website Haber7, Volkan Okçu, one of the organizers of the protest, indicated the boats will carry 4,500 people from 40 countries, “including anti-Zionist Jews.”

Among the 1,000 vessels would be 313 boats filled with Russian activists, and 104 filled with Spanish activists, he said. Only 12 Turkish vessels will join the flotilla, he told Haber7.

However, Okçu said in a later tweet that he expected the number of Turkish vessels to be much higher, at least 1,000, and insisted that the initiative is not associated with the Turkish government. He did not explain the discrepancy in numbers.

The activist indicated to Haber7 that the flotilla is scheduled to leave Turkish coasts on Thursday. The maritime convoy is set to make a first stop in Cyprus before continuing toward the Israeli port of Ashdod. Some participants in the flotilla will also reportedly take their spouses and children on board.

Okçu said that the main objective of the operation would be to cause disruption in international waters off the Israeli coast to the maritime trade heading for the port of Ashdod, in order to interrupt the supply of goods to Israel for a week or even up to 10 days….

Muslim Stabs Children at Dublin Catholic School, Media Covers It Up

A 5-year-old girl was receiving emergency medical treatment.

What. Where. Why.

You won’t find any of those ‘Ws’ in any story that the media is interested in covering up, rather than covering.

Take the stabbing of small children at a Catholic school in Dublin, allegedly, by an Algerian Muslim. You can read entire stories about what happened in Dublin without a mention of these key elements of the story.

A FOX News story on the incident would read as quite baffling because it entirely covers the riots after this latest incident of Muslim violence without actually explaining why anyone might be rioting.

Protesters and rioters clashed with police officers and a police vehicle was set ablaze in Dublin, Ireland, Thursday evening after a knife attack that injured five, including three children.

According to Irish media outlet RTÉ, rioters attacked gardaí, officers of the state police force Garda, and set a garda vehicle on fire.

Okay, but why is this rioting taking place? What’s the connection between the ‘knife attack’ and the riots?

The riots came hours after a knife attack outside a school in the heart of Dublin around 1:30 p.m. A 5-year-old girl was receiving emergency medical treatment in a hospital. A woman and two other children were also injured. A 6-year-old girl sustained less serious injuries, and a boy was discharged from a hospital, officials said.

The media can’t tell you that the stabber was allegedly an Algerian Muslim and so it also can’t explain why people might be rioting. The result is a ‘Pravda’ story in which you can only understand things by reading between the lines and inverting the official denial.

Irish police said they weren’t treating the case as terror-related, adding that a man in his 50s, who was also hospitalized with serious injuries, is a “person of interest.” No further details about the man’s identity were released by authorities.

If you’re an average person, this whole story makes no sense. Someone stabs some kids and people riot. But if you’re versed in reading Pravda journalism, you understand that the man’s identity is very important… because the media and the authorities aren’t telling you who he is.

And the one thing the media is telling you, that the case is not terror-related, should be viewed with suspicion.

Nowhere in the story does it get around to mentioning salient facts such as the Muslim attacker targeted children in a Catholic school.

The attack occurred shortly after 1 p.m. near Parnell Square, just off the city’s main boulevard O’Connell Street. The three children, who were lining up in front of their crèche prior to the incident, have been taken to hospital. A five-year-old girl is in a critical condition at Temple Street Children’s Hospital. In total five people have been hospitalized, including a 50-year-old male suspect who is now in custody. Irish media reported that the police ruled out a terror motive. The Catholic school is an Irish language-speaking school called Cólaiste Mhuire, which means St. Mary’s College

And what were the rioters saying?

The area where the attack occurred is ethnically diverse, but predominantly working-class, and host to a major asylum centre as well as a string of hotels turned into refugee accommodations. Certain media sources have described the attacker as an Algerian national.

Shortly after 5 p.m., crowds of young men from nearby housing estates began to gather on the street where the knife attack occurred and quickly engaged in verbal and physical altercations with awaiting police.

Authorities were shortly overwhelmed by the mob with chants of “Ireland for the Irish” and “Get ‘Em Out” heard as mobs of young men began to rush police and attack squad cars. The badly outnumbered police retreated northwards with abandoned vehicles left to be burnt by the gangs.

Now there’s actual context and the story makes sense.

Whatever your political views, any reasonable person has to acknowledge that the thoroughly censored mainstream media version of the story makes no sense. There’s no context and there is no explanation. What, why, and where are sorely lacking. Rioters inexplicably clash with police after a stabbing. Why?

The level of media censorship is so extreme as to make it impossible to understand what’s going on. And that’s no longer media bias, it’s simply political censorship.

Biden Support Continues to Crater Among Gen Z and Millenials

Young voters are abandoning Joe Biden in worrying numbers for the Democrats, especially when it comes to supporting Israel. The most recent NBC poll found 70% of 18-24-year-old voters disapprove of Biden's handling of the war.

The Israel-Hamas war is beginning to be a drag on Biden's re-election chances. What he can do to reverse the decline is a subject of intense debate in the Biden camp.

Some "experts," according to the Washington Post, say that the younger voters are turned off to the "far-right politics" of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In fact, the explanation is far simpler; a lack of skepticism about news coming from Gaza and the inability of Gen-Zers to differentiate between news and propaganda.

“After what’s happening right now in the Middle East, it’s a very difficult decision for people from my background who we’re going to be voting for,” said Humza Irfan, who is Pakistani American and said a relative was killed last month in an apparent Israeli strike.

Gen Z and millennial voters are expected to make up nearly 40 percent of the electorate in 2024 and have already flexed their influence on elections. They helped flip the Wisconsin Supreme Court earlier this year to a liberal majority, and they boosted turnout on college campuses in Pennsylvania and Virginia in this month’s elections. Polling showed young voters were highly motivated by issues such as abortion, in which there is a clear contrast between the stances of Biden and Trump, the front-runner for the GOP nomination.

But a diminished turnout among young voters could complicate Biden’s reelection bid, especially in key battleground states such as Michigan. Biden flipped the state in 2020, and network exit polls found 61 percent of Michigan voters ages 18 to 29 supported his campaign.

“We all have TikTok, we all have Instagram. And it’s honestly like we’ve begun to form these parasocial relationships with the people in Palestine,” 19-year-old Marie Willy said, citing posts by a creator named Bisan Owda who shares videos from inside Gaza.

Taking the word of an anonymous internet poster as "news" is bat guano crazy and the fact that the girl doesn't realize that is troubling.

It should be noted that very few of the pro-Palestinian kids were ever going to vote for Trump. But not voting, or voting for a third candidate is almost as good.

Earlier in November, several leaders of national youth organizing groups wrote a letter to Biden telling him bluntly of the consequences of not changing course on the war.

“You and your Administration’s stance on Gaza risks millions of young voters staying home or voting third party next year,” the letter read, adding that it “will not be possible for those committed to turning out the youth vote this election to recruit the volunteers, organizers, staff, and donors needed to deliver the margins for Democratic victory down the ballot.”

What will all these threats to stay home or vote for someone else lead to?

Members of College Democrats at the University of Michigan, some of the president’s top defenders on campus, said they believe at the end of the day that their peers will turn out for Biden, especially when confronted with Trump as the alternative — even as some acknowledged that the president could improve his messaging around the war.

“I understand some folks’ frustration, especially of recent in light of the Israel-Palestine conflict … it’s a deeply emotional thing, deeply personal,” said Jade Gray, the co-president of the group. “And I do think that the steps that he’s taken are along the path to a cease-fire, and I know that that’s what folks are looking for next.”

Most of these college Democrats will hold their noses and vote for Biden  that is, "most" of them. In a close election, as this one is bound to be, even a 5% drop-off in support from 2020 to 2024 could cost Biden several states.

Biden will probably not call for a cease-fire. But the pressure he's under is growing and anything is possible in an election year.

Pro-Palestinian Protesters Disrupt Macy’s Parade, Deface NY Public Library

Jeff Christensen
Por-Palestinian protesters jumped the barricades at Sixth Avenue during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and ran into the street. They glued their hands to the pavement, chanting "No more nickels, not another dime, no more money for Israel's crimes." 

They can't do any better than that? Iambic pentameter, it's not. Nor is it very clever. Also, the rhyme is forced and doesn't flow at all.

In fact, this is a miserable excuse for protest chanting. They need to take some lessons from the Vietnam-era protesters; the hippies, the yippies, the SDS, and, of course, the Weathermen. "Hell no, we won't go" and "Hey! Hey! LBJ! How Many kids did you kill today" outshines anything these pro-terrorist kids can come up with.

One banner, when unfurled, read, "Liberation for Palestine and Planet" which conveniently promoted two wildly unrelated causes; end to fissile fuels and freedom for Palestine.

Fox News:

The protesters wore white jumpsuits, doused themselves with red liquid and glued their hands to the street to try to disrupt the parade. The crowd lining the sidewalk could be heard drowning out the chants with boos.

NYPD officers were seen removing the protesters from the street and taking them away from the scene so that the parade could continue.

On another part of the parade route, protesters waving Palestinian flags and holding pro-Palestinian signs were singing a variety of chants, including "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free."

Some chanted, "There is only one solution, intifada revolution," while others called for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war.

This woman has the right idea.

Even Native Americans got in the act. The float from the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe was passing Macy's flagship store when a young man raised a small Palestinian flag over his head. No fair piggybacking your protest on that of the Palestinians.

Another group of protesters spray-painted the words "Free Palestine" on the pillars of the front of the New York Public Library and spray-painted bloody handprints on the base of the building as well.

The library didn't think much of the "protest."

"The New York Public Library is a public institution with a mission to provide free access to knowledge for all. We strongly support the right to protest. Unfortunately today, individuals involved in a protest vandalized the Library's flagship Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, a space devoted to the open exchange of ideas and intellectual debate. This comes at a time when the city's libraries are facing steep budget cuts that have left us unable to maintain our current levels of service, and this vandalism will be costly to repair. We do not anticipate any unplanned closures due to this, and remain committed to providing the resources we know so many people rely on," the library said in a statement.

I'm afraid any plea for understanding fell on deaf ears.

Hamas Violated Ceasefire Within 15 Minutes

A temporary ceasefire, or pause, between Israel and Hamas, was set to begin Friday morning. The pause was offered in exchange for at least 50 women and children hostages in Gaza, while Israel also agreed to pause hostilities for at least four days and release 150 Palestinian women and children in Israeli custody.

According to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), Palestinian militants in Gaza violated the established ceasefire agreement within 15 minutes. The IDF reported they intercepted a rocket aimed at southern Israel.

"Rocket sirens sounded in the evacuated southern Israeli towns of Kissufim and Ein HaShlosha early on Friday morning, shortly after a four-day ceasefire came into effect that will allow a prisoner exchange and the delivery of humanitarian aid into the besieged and devastated Gaza Strip,” reported Newsweek.

"There was a rocket and it was intercepted," the IDF Spokesperson's Unit told Newsweek of the reports, noting it was fired at 7:15 a.m. local time; 15 minutes after the ceasefire—which the IDF is calling an "operational pause"—came into effect.

It is not yet clear which group was responsible for the alleged rocket launch, though the IDF has previously said Hamas bears responsibility for any attacks from Gaza into southern Israel given it holds influence over other local militant groups.

Newsweek has contacted a Hamas spokesperson by WhatsApp to request comment.

Friday's pause in the fighting comes after several weeks of tough negotiations between Israel, Hamas, the U.S., Egypt, and Qatar. It is the first significant break in combat since the Hamas infiltration attack into southern Israel on October 7, which killed some 1,200 people and saw around 240 taken back into the Gaza Strip as hostages. 

This is not the first time Hamas previously postponed the ceasefire until Friday, which IDF spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus says is  “indicative” of their “psychological warfare” tactics.

“Our posture on the ground will be to continue operations until specifically told by the government to change and facilitate the repatriation of Israeli hostages,” Conricus said Thursday. “This delay, I think, is indicative of what Hamas has been doing all along and will probably do throughout the implementation of this agreement. They are playing a game of psychological warfare where they want to extract maximum pain and discomfort and terror with Israeli civilians waiting for their loved ones to come home.”

Last month, Hamas also agreed to release two hostages in what was likely an attempt to delay a ground invasion as opposed to a gesture of good faith.

It is highly questionable whether Hamas actually intends to release any more hostages at all. But, clearly, Hamas can’t be trusted. There’s already chatter on social media blaming Israel for continued hostilities despite the ceasefire agreement. Clearly, Hamas knows that it can successfully manipulate the media to push the narrative they want.
