    PROJECT ODIN=EBS

    We know that something powerful will take down the Mossad Media satellite. This will cause a worldwide communications blackout, transitioning us to a Quantum System. This is called PROJECT ODIN. In essence, it provides a reason to activate Military EBS.
    Starlink is up and seemingly ready for the Army to activate the worldwide Emergency Broadcast System.

    The Odin Project, as mentioned by Ron CodeMonkeyz, is a powerful cross-platform Anti-Cheat Engine and part of Quantum Starlink. These new Quantum Systems are protected by secret space programs beyond the reach of the Cabal.

    Q tells us that Mossad media assets will be eliminated. has repeatedly stated that there will be a big Biblical scenario where they present it as World War 3 but in reality they will activate the Military worldwide and then start bombing all the This satanic place.

    This will release the NESARA/GESARA funds and then we the people will begin to rebuild. This event is truly biblical.
    What are some of the larger Satanic Illuminati sites in the world? Q showed us things like:
    * Vatican
    * Buckinghan Palace
    * Whitehouse x 2 (USA, Germany)
    * 3GD in China
    *Cern at Swiss/French Border possibly
    * Big Pharma in Wuhan = Israel
    * Israel/Khazarians control CCP
    * Communication etc
    * 34 Satanic buildings and dams will fall

    Many events will also take place such as:
    * Rods of God/DEW (Directed Energy Weapons) used on Satan-targeted sites worldwide
    * Planes and trains will be grounded
    *Lights/Energy will be turned off briefly as they switch to Tesla free energy
    * Bitcoin Server/Data Center will be hacked and shut down forever
    * 99.5% of cryptocurrencies will disappear, including Chinese Coins
    * ISO20022 coins backed by Precious Metals will be available
    * WW3 scare event will take place
    * Nuclear siren
    * Water events
    * The stock market collapsed
    * Global martial arts rules
    * CASTLE ROCK - Background Julian Assange
    * Quantum system
    * Odin project enabled
    * Nesara / Gesara / RV
    * Revealing the election through the Military Court - FISA
    * Military trial
    * 10 countries will run EBS for worldwide coverage
    * Tremendous truths revealed
    * Trump and Kennedy inaugurations
    * ISRAELI MOSSAD has controlled world media out of America.
    * Project Odin is part of Quantum Starlink
    * The new quantum system will be protected by secret space programs beyond the reach of the Cabal
    * Satanic Media assets will be removed.
    * Israeli intelligence was forced to withdraw
    * Media assets will be removed
    * After communications are disabled, John F Kennedy Jr will appear.

    To convert to Gesara/Greatness, they must play this fake World War 3 scenario to sound the sirens in each National Military Command Center. This is to justify to the entire planet many things that have taken place. The Gesara Military Law was implemented which included Secret Military Tribunals, Confessions, executions etc. As usual, all armies will be there to help build new things. We have achieved freedom, saved our children and freed the world of corrupt governments and enslavers.

  • Message to all conspiracy theorists and curators
    To all of you who have spent years being ridiculed on social media and being called "crazy" and still standing up for what you believe in and trying to spread the truth to the public. L
    You lose friends and family, and despite being ridiculed, you speak the truth.
    To all the lightworkers, starseeds, wayshowers, and alternative therapists who have always felt left out and different but never stopped being people who tried to offer another perspective on things.
    I learned about energy healing, crystals, Mother Gaia, and healing therapies while everyone around me laughed.
    You were different, you were eccentric, and you never adapted or adapted to this situation without regret.
    For sensitive people who are heartbroken after learning about human trafficking, pedophile rings, and harm to children.
    The woke people who realized what was going on in the world and had to break their hearts into a million pieces while thinking everyone in their lives was losing their minds. You had to face all this alone and it broke your heart, but you made it through and faced the dark night of the soul!!
    To the old souls who feel alone and different, who strive every day to help humanity who have lost many friends and family in the process of awakening.
    The people who don't go out anymore, the people who research till the end of the day, the people who dare to stand up and say things that no one else would say. >>>>>>>
    You have dedicated your life to this ascension process. >>>>>>>
    I respect each and every one of you. >>>>>>>
    This process is the hardest thing anyone has ever had to do, but you did it first. >>>>>>>
    Every day more and more people are waking up. >>>>>>>
    I know it's hard and I know you can be exhausted and exhausted by the negative reactions you're getting, but this fight will be over soon and soon the world will realize what we did. , and stay strong because you will find out why you did it. >>>>>>>
    Where one goes, all go too. >>>>>>>
    This time will be mentioned in history, and your efforts to awaken and heal humanity will not only affect our existence on Earth, but everything throughout the universe.
    This is a galactic event and you chose this task before incarnating into this timeline.

    You chose to be here now.


    You are a divine being, remember who you are.

    Endless blessings.
    The best is yet to come.

  • Major Industry Disruption Coming:

    Nuclear energy

    Healthcare Software

    Fintech (crypto)

    Genomics (Bioengineering)

    Banking

    Agriculture

    These are the fields that will face massive disruptions. Now that the C-Doc has been revoked cures that have been put on the backburner can be released exponentially fast. New medical tech can be developed without the bureaucratic red tape.

    The Chevron Doctrine stems from the 1984 Supreme Court case Chevron U.S.A., Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc. It established a legal test for determining when courts should defer to a government agency's interpretation of a statute that it administers.

    The Chevron Doctrine was this little legal nugget that basically said, "Hey, courts, if Congress wrote a law that's as clear as mud, just trust the agency in charge to figure it out." It was like giving the keys to the kingdom to federal agencies, allowing them to interpret laws as they saw fit.

    Now, imagine a world where big, bad monopolies on medical technology (like those pesky med beds) were running amok, crushing innovation under their tyrannical heels. The Chevron Doctrine was like their best buddy, helping them keep their iron grip on the market.

    You see, with the Chevron Doctrine in place, these monopolies could lobby the agencies to interpret laws in their favor, effectively blocking any upstarts from entering the scene with their fancy new med beds or other medical marvels. It was like a legal shield, protecting them from the harsh winds of competition.

    Think about all the sci-fi ideas over the last 10-15 years you have been hearing about.

    1. Neural interfaces for direct mind-computer connection

    2. Holographic displays and augmented reality contact lenses

    3. Teleportation devices for instant travel

    4. Nanobots for medical treatment and bodily enhancement

    5. Anti-gravity vehicles and personal flying suits

    6. Replicators that can materialize any object

    7. Time manipulation devices

    8. Invisibility cloaks or fields

    9. Artificial general intelligence indistinguishable from humans

    10. Memory editing and implantation technology

    11. Consciousness uploads to software

    12. Genetic engineering for bio-design with enhanced humans

    13. Fully immersive virtual reality worlds

    14. Faster-than-light space travel

    This is just a rough list of things you can expect to start major production. This is one of the reasons why I think Donald Trump put out that warning to the Deep State. Because the only way all of this can go into production in earnest is once we do a massive illegal immigrants sweep across the country.

    Then as that is happening you will start to see a fast-track of revolutionary innovation across all industries in record time. You are about to experience the debut of America 5.0. This is why you all feel this lethargic drag everyday you wake up because we have parasites living among us who are not supposed to be here. Which is why everything has this slow pace to it. And it messing with you mentally.

    Which is why people are reaching their breaking point. Why do you think you are always seeing videos of people in their vehicles talking about how hard things are? How challenging life has become? How much financial hardships they are going through? Because we have strained our system to benefit people who are not adding anything to it. And the burden is falling on Americans and the weight had become unbearable.

    Not anymore. This 5 month transition period into next year will see massive changes. The Chevron Doctrine has officially opened up the door for a massive breakthrough in that regard. You are about to see things turned up a notch so be on guard through the remaining months of this year. Because a lot of people do not want you to have what you are about to receive.

  • #English - We continue learning and treating VICTIMS of BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS, caused in this case by 2 doses of MODERNA and 4 PCR tests.

    WE’RE TREATING THE PATIENT IN A HOTEL ROOM.

    We’ll remove this thrombus, which is unlikely to be a COAGULUS, while he is still alive.

    BILATERAL AND SYMMETRIC THROMBOSIS, which could reach the RIGHT SIDE OF THE HEART (it is wrongly said in the video, LAPSUS) AND CAUSE SUB MASSIVE OR MASSIVE LUNG INFARCTUS.

    Neuro modulation doesn’t allow victims to seek help. The patient's situation becomes more complicated with each passing day.

    The possibilities are diminishing as the structures continue to become more complicated due to the antennas.

    Victims who understand should still consult, as they have many diagnosable and treatable ailments with serious and formal medicine.

  • New worries as polio virus detected in Gaza sewage – Day 285
    [email protected] July 19, 2024 American Federation of Teachers, Amnesty International, democratic platform, gaza pier, healthcare in gaza, houthis, humanitarian aid, icc arrest warrant, itamar ben gvir, microsoft, mike johnson, Netanyahu, netanyahu speech, oxfam report, palestinian statehood, polio virus, republican national convention, torture
    The polio virus has been detected in Gaza's sewage, which flows through areas with displaced persons and residential zones due to infrastructure destruction, and “represents a new health crisis.” (photo)
    Polio risk added to long list of crises in Gaza; Amnesty speaks out on Israeli torture, Oxfam speaks out on Israeli water weaponization; LA may hire ex-IDF soldiers to patrol streets; 1,000+ attacks on Palestinian healthcare; Ben Gvir’s provocative prayer visit to Al Aqsa; Netanyahu nixes children’s hospital for Gaza kids; ICC arrest warrants expected soon; Republican and Democratic parties scramble to ingratiate with Israel; much more.

    By IAK staff, from reports.

    New health crisis unfolds in Gaza as poliovirus found in sewage

    Andalou Agency reports: A new health crisis unfolded in the bombarded Gaza Strip with the detection of poliovirus in sewage, the Gaza Health Ministry revealed on Thursday.

    A ministry statement noted that “tests on sewage samples, conducted in coordination with UNICEF, confirmed the presence of the poliovirus.”

    The statement added that the presence of the virus in sewage, which flows through areas with displaced persons and residential zones due to infrastructure destruction, “represents a new health crisis.”

    The situation is exacerbated by severe overcrowding, scarce and contaminated water supplies, accumulated garbage, and the Israeli blockade on hygiene supplies.

    The ministry warned that the detection of the virus in sewage puts thousands of residents at risk of contracting polio.

    UNICEF and other organizations have been warning for months of the possibility of an outbreak if they weren’t able to get on top of vaccination programs and decontamination efforts in Gaza. But that has been impossible due to Israel’s ongoing war and the limits imposed by the Israeli military on the entry to Gaza of hygiene kits, vaccines and other essential medicines.

    Amnesty Int’l calls on Israel to end mass incommunicado detention and torture of Palestinians from Gaza

    From Amnesty’s website: Israeli authorities must end their indefinite incommunicado detention of Palestinians from the occupied Gaza Strip, without charge or trial under the Unlawful Combatants law, in flagrant violation of international law, said Amnesty International.

    The organization documented the cases of 27 Palestinian former detainees, including five women, 21 men and a 14-year-old boy, who were detained for periods of up to four and a half months without access to their lawyers or any contact with their families, in connection with this law. All those interviewed by Amnesty International said that during their incommunicado detention, which in some cases amounted to enforced disappearance, Israeli military, intelligence and police forces subjected them to torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.

    The Unlawful Combatants Law grants the Israeli military sweeping powers to detain anyone from Gaza that they suspect of engagement in hostilities against Israel or posing a threat to state security for indefinitely renewable periods without having to produce evidence to substantiate the claims.

    “While international humanitarian law allows for the detention of individuals on imperative security grounds in situations of occupation, there must be safeguards to prevent indefinite or arbitrary detention and torture and other ill-treatment. This law blatantly fails to provide these safeguards. It enables rampant torture and, in some circumstances, institutionalizes enforced disappearance,” said Agnès Callamard, Secretary General of Amnesty International.

    “Our documentation illustrates how the Israeli authorities are using the Unlawful Combatants Law to arbitrarily round up Palestinian civilians from Gaza and toss them into a virtual black hole for prolonged periods without producing any evidence that they pose a security threat and without minimum due process. Israeli authorities must immediately repeal this law and release those arbitrarily detained under it.”

    Oxfam report: Water War Crimes: How Israel has weaponized water in its military campaign in Gaza

    Oxfam’s new 66-page report, released Wednesday, documents how since October, Israel has systematically reduced the water available in Gaza by 94%, with just 4.74 liters per resident obtainable each day—less than a third of the recommended minimum amount in emergencies.

    An average of five of Gaza’s water and sanitation sites have been taken out of service every three days, Oxfam found, reducing water production from sources in the Gaza Strip by 84% by late May.

    Gaza City, the enclave’s most populous city before it was largely destroyed by the bombardment, has lost 88% of its water wells.

    With Israel blocking fuel deliveries as well as food, medical, and other necessary aid, 100% of the city’s water desalination plants have been put out of service, making it impossible to treat seawater and brackish water to make it safe to drink.

    Seventy percent of sewage pumps and 100% of wastewater treatment plants have also been destroyed throughout the enclave.

    West Bank – Israeli military drops threatening leaflets over Jenin camp

    The Israeli military has reportedly dropped leaflets in the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank, threatening to kill wanted young men if they do not surrender themselves.

    The leaflets, dropped via reconnaissance aircraft, were dropped near a mosque on Mahyoub Street in the camp.

    The Jenin area has long been a center of Palestinian resistance to Israel’s occupation in the West Bank and has witnessed some of the most intense fighting between Israeli forces and Palestinian armed groups since October 7.

    L.A. city council considers funding former IDF soldiers to patrol its streets

    The Intercept reports: The Los Angeles City Council is considering whether to give public funds to private, armed security patrols to protect its religious communities, following a protest against the marketing of West Bank settlement properties at an LA synagogue last month that turned violent.

    Anti-war group CodePink, which organizes pro-Palestine protests, said of the event, “The protest was solely focused on the illegal sale of Palestinian land. We respect religious practices and make sure our actions are directed toward real estate activities, not against worshippers,” No religious services were scheduled at the time of the real estate event.

    Pro-Israel counter protesters were also present at the same time, and reportedly used violence and racial slurs.

    Codepink claimed that Los Angeles police employed a double standard against the pro-Palestine protestors.

    In the immediate wake of the incident, city council members introduced a motion to give $1 million to several Jewish security organizations that would expand their work around Jewish schools, religious institutions, and neighborhoods – in spite of the fact that the protest was not against Jews.

    Magen Am, a nonprofit that runs armed patrol services and firearm training programs for the Jewish community, was named as the recipient of $350,000 in the motion. The group is largely made up of former Israeli soldiers, along with U.S. military veterans, according to the group’s website and social media posts.

    The majority of the former Israel Defense Forces soldiers in the group are “lone soldiers,” according to several reports, the term for individuals with no direct ties to the state of Israel who immigrate there to serve in the nation’s military.

    The city council has since introduced a new motion, which would give $2 million to various faith groups that want to hire additional security and does not mention Magen Am or any recipients by name. But LA activists are still concerned that city funds will go to an armed group with hard-line political stances.

    “The fact that Magen Am was even named in that original motion as a recipient of money, that exposes the intention,” said Miguel Camnitzer, an activist with Jewish Voice for Peace. The group is alarmed that city leaders are choosing to fund individuals who served a military that commits ethnic cleansing and genocide of the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank.

    “It’s the same military that’s enacting this genocide, and we’re going to have them patrolling our streets with guns seems wild to me,” Camnitzer said. The group also notes that the new motion does not include any provisions for keeping the recipients of city money accountable to the public interest. “We’re talking about essentially a private militia that can use force and detain people, and has no accountability.”

    Over 1,000 attacks on healthcare in Occupied Palestinian Territory since October

    ReliefWeb reports: The World Health Organization (WHO) has registered more than 1,000 attacks on healthcare facilities in the Occupied Palestinian Territory since the October 7 terror attacks in Israel sparked the on-going war in Gaza, the agency’s top official in the region said on Wednesday.

    In a press briefing, Dr. Rik Peeperkorn, WHO representative for the West Bank and Gaza, told journalists there are currently no functional hospitals in the enclave’s southernmost city of Rafah, following Israel’s recent offensive there.

    The availability of hospital beds has drastically declined, dropping from 3,500 before the conflict erupted, to just 1,400 today, he added.

    He said 600 of those 1,400 are being provided by field hospitals “so currently from the Ministry of Health and NGO fixed hospitals, there’s only 800 hospital beds in service from the 3,500, plus 600 field hospital beds, for a population of 2.2 million people”.

    The WHO official also highlighted the urgency of allowing critically ill patients to leave Gaza, stating that around 10,000 patients still require urgent evacuation, half of whom are suffering from severe trauma – including spinal injuries and amputations.

    Israeli legislature votes overwhelmingly against Palestinian statehood, days before PM’s US trip

    Times of Israel reports: The Knesset late Wednesday voted overwhelmingly to pass a resolution rejecting the establishment of a Palestinian state.

    The initiative was passed just days before Netanyahu’s visit to the US to address a joint session of Congress and meet with President Joe Biden at the White House. The move was likely to further irk Democrats uncomfortable with embracing an Israeli government that increasingly rejects a two-state solution.

    The resolution — passed 68-9 — altogether rejects the establishment of a Palestinian state, even as part of a negotiated settlement with Israel.

    “The Knesset of Israel firmly opposes the establishment of a Palestinian state west of Jordan. The establishment of a Palestinian state in the heart of the Land of Israel will pose an existential danger to the State of Israel and its citizens, perpetuate the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and destabilize the region,” the resolution stated.

    NOTE: The reality is the opposite of what the resolution states: rather than a Palestinian state being created in the “heart of the land of Israel,” the state of Israel was created in the heart of historic Palestine.

    Al-Aqsa Mosque stormed by far-right Israeli minister for fifth time

    Middle East Monitor reports: Israel’s far-right National Security Minister stormed into Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem yesterday, accompanied by a group of Israeli soldiers. Palestinian worshippers were barred from entering the site while Itamar Ben-Gvir was there.

    “I came here, to the most important place of the State of Israel [sic] and to the people of Israel, to pray for the return of the abductees to their home,” said right-ring extremist Ben-Gvir, “but without an illegitimate deal and surrender.” This was a reference to any ceasefire and prisoner exchange deal with the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, which he opposes.

    The incident on Wednesday marked the fifth time that Ben-Gvir has raided the mosque by force since becoming an Israeli minister in December 2022. The leader of the far-right Otzma Yehudit (Jewish Power) party is well-known for encouraging Israeli settlers to storm Al-Aqsa.

    Al-Aqsa Mosque compound is the third-holiest site in the world for Islam and Muslims. Jews call the area the Temple Mount, and there are plans to knock down the mosque and other Islamic buildings across the Noble Sanctuary, including the iconic Dome of the Rock Mosque, and build a temple in their place.



    Israeli government shelves plans to block terror convicts from running for Knesset: Report

    Middle East Eye reports: The Israeli government has shelved plans to pass legislation that would prevent terror convicts from running for the Knesset over concerns that it would impact far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir, Israel’s Kan public broadcaster reports.

    in 2008, Ben Gvir was convicted by the Jerusalem District Court of incitement to racism and supporting a terror organisation.

    Kan says that Likud MK Nissim Vaturi proposed the legislation on Sunday, which aims at preventing anyone who has ever been involved in terrorist activity from running from a Knesset seat, regardless of the severity of the crime.

    Netanyahu vetoes Gallant’s planned field hospital for Gaza kids

    The Times of Israel reports: A public fight broke out between Yoav Gallant and Benjamin Netanyahu Thursday over the medical treatment of Gaza children.

    Gallant announced on Wednesday that a field hospital for children would be established by the IDF in Israel, near the Gaza border, due to the extended closure of Gaza’s Rafah Crossing into Egypt, which Gazans had previously used in order to travel overseas for medical treatment.

    But Gallant’s announcement was apparently not coordinated with the prime minister. Netanyahu’s office reportedly informed Gallant that he would not approve the establishment of the field hospital “and for this reason it will not be established.”

    ICC to issue arrest warrants for Israeli leaders Netanyahu, Gallant ‘within two weeks’

    The New Arab reports: The International Criminal Court (ICC) is expected to issue arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant within the next two weeks, Israeli media reported on Wednesday.

    A report by Israel’s Channel 14 cited unnamed Israeli officials who said they believed that it was “highly probable” that the arrest warrants would be issued in that time frame.

    This comes weeks after Netanyahu said in June that he expected the warrants to be issued before his address to the US Congress on 24 July, according to Ynet.

    ICC chief prosecutor Karim Khan applied for warrants against the two Israeli leaders on 20 May for the war crimes of using starvation as a weapon of war and wilful killing, among other charges.

    Ukraine makes humanitarian flour shipment to Palestinians

    The New Arab reports: Ukraine said Thursday that it had sent flour to the Palestinian territories as part of an initiative to ship free agricultural supplies to poor countries and regions.

    “Palestine received 1,000 tons of wheat flour,” Ukraine’s foreign ministry posted on X.

    “The shipment is the first of three deliveries intended for Palestine… It will support over 101,000 Palestinian families for a month,” it said.

    Kyiv launched the “Grain for Ukraine” initiative in a bid to ensure Russia’s invasion did not threaten its position as one of the world’s largest agricultural exporters.

    Ukraine did not say whether the flour was intended for Gaza, which is facing a humanitarian crisis and steep drops in the amount of aid that has reached the coastal strip during the war between Israel and Hamas.

    Kyiv was a major grain exporter to the Palestinians before Russia invaded Ukraine in 2022.

    US declares ‘mission complete’ for Gaza Aid Pier after delivering one day’s worth of food

    The Cradle reports: The Pentagon announced on 17 July that the floating pier built off the coast of Gaza would be dismantled for good, declaring its “mission complete” two months after it started operations.

    “Our assessment is that the temporary pier has achieved its intended effect to surge a very high volume of aid into Gaza and ensure that aid reaches the civilians in Gaza in a quick manner,” Cooper said, adding that nearly 20 million pounds of aid entered Gaza via the pier – the equivalent of about 600 truckloads.

    For months, the UN and other human rights organizations have established that a minimum of 500 to 600 truckloads of aid need to enter Gaza daily to alleviate critical famine conditions. A large part of the aid that reached Gaza via the pier rotted under the sun for weeks after the US and Israel used the alleged humanitarian corridor to launch a bloody rescue operation in Nuseirat camp that killed nearly 300 Palestinians.

    Cooper also announced that efforts to deliver aid to Gaza by sea would shift to the Israeli port of Ashdod. He added that, after US troops failed to re-attach the pier last week for a final time, about five million pounds of aid stranded in Cyprus and at sea will be heading to Ashdod.

    “Having now delivered the largest volume of humanitarian assistance ever into the Middle East, we’re now mission complete and transitioning to a new phase,” Cooper claimed. “In the coming weeks, we expect that millions of pounds of aid will enter into Gaza via this new pathway.”

    US elections 2024: Democratic Party platform backs Biden’s approach to Gaza, Middle East policy

    Middle East Eye reports: There will be very little change to President Joe Biden’s widely unpopular approach to Israel’s war on Gaza if he is reelected, a leaked draft of the Democratic Party’s platform for 2024 has revealed, indicating the party’s refusal to envisage any new headway in ending a war that has killed close to 40,000 Palestinians in 10 months.

    The 80-page platform, released by Politico and which will be endorsed next month during the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, includes a two-page section on the Middle East, in which it categorically condemns the Hamas-led attacks on southern Israel that took place on 7 October and reiterates that “the United States wants to see Hamas defeated”.

    The platform lists examples of Biden’s unwavering support for Israel’s war on Gaza, including the sending of arms shipments and providing a diplomatic shield for Israel at the United Nations during votes for a ceasefire and regarding concerns about human rights violations.

    Speaker Mike Johnson Threatens to Arrest Lawmakers Who Disrupt Netanyahu’s Congress speech

    Ha’aretz reports: At the Republican Jewish Coalition’s “Salute to Pro-Israel Elected Officials” on the sidelines of the GOP convention, the only thing more palpable than leading officials’ support for Israel is their resentment toward Joe Biden and the Democratic Party.

    The event, attended by hundreds and including addresses from among the most senior Republican officials in America, was the convention’s clearest and firmest argument from the GOP that it is “the only-pro Israel party” amid the Democratic Party’s leftward shift amid the Gaza war. [EDITOR’S NOTE: The Democratic Party is also pro-Israel – see above article – but has made a few concessions to its constituents during the current war.]

    “We have been demonstrating that over and over and over,” House Speaker Mike Johnson said, noting the Republican efforts to attack the Biden administration over the delay of a shipment of 2,000 pound heavy-payload weapons. [Read about the effects of heavy bombs here.]

    “This is a moment for moral clarity and it’s unconscionable to us that the president and some leaders in Congress are unable to say what is good and what is evil,” he continued, addressing the pro-Palestinian protest movement on college campuses. [Read the truth about campus protests here.]

    He additionally forecasted future legislative action aimed at college endowments and protesters in America on student visas.

    Johnson further attacked Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer for delaying the invitation to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress.

    “The only reason this got done is because I went to the press corps,” he said, vowing that Capitol Police will arrest anyone who tries to disrupt Netanyahu’s speech.

    Former President Donald Trump spoke during the Republican National Convention saying: “We want our hostages back,” adding: “They better be back before I assume office or you will be paying a very big price.”

    Trump commented in his speech on Israel’s Iron Dome system, highlighting its part in intercepting a drone and missile attack from Iran in April.

    NOTE: Many conservative analysts disagree with this Israel-first position:



    US teachers’ union pushes for Israel divestment

    Members of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), one of the largest US unions, have put forth a resolution to divest from Israel bonds.

    “The AFT holds only one bond of a foreign government, … a country internationally accused of committing war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide,” they wrote in a statement.

    The AFT’s Israel bond, “which helps fund Israel’s scholasticide and genocide, and pays for Israel’s longstanding occupation of the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the apartheid regime against Palestinians everywhere”, is valued at $150,000.

    Groups Condemn Microsoft’s Unjust Blocking of Palestinian Skype and Email Accounts

    Al Haq, a Palestinian human rights organization, reports: The Palestinian Digital Rights Coalition and other groups released a statement Thursday condemning discriminatory actions by Microsoft against Palestinian users:

    The Palestinian Digital Rights Coalition and undersigned allies strongly condemn Microsoft’s recent treatment of Palestinian customers. The company’s recent actions of blocking Palestinian users’ email and Skype accounts, an unjust disruption that has severe consequences on their daily lives during a time of war, is not only an affront to basic human decency but also a violation of their fundamental rights.

    Access to technology and communication is crucial, especially in conflict zones where information and connectivity can mean the difference between life and death. Furthermore, Microsoft accounts provide access to communication platforms, bank accounts, and job opportunities.

    By blocking its services, Microsoft is effectively cutting Palestinians off from social, professional, and financial opportunities during a time of immense suffering and devastation. Microsoft’s decision to restrict its services to Palestinians at such a critical juncture is deeply troubling and cannot be justified.

    Houthis suggest Gaza aid deal with Israel for decrease in attacks on shipping

    Al Jazeera reports: A senior Houthi official in Yemen says if Israel allows desperately needed humanitarian aid into northern Gaza, the militia will cease some attacks on ships that visit the Umm al-Rashrash port, known in Israel as Eilat.

    Mohammed Ali al-Houthi said on X: “We say to the enemy if you allow the entry of aid into the north of Gaza, as much as you allow the Yemeni Mujahideen army will allow the delivery of similar quantities to the occupied port. The ball is in your court.”

    Al-Houthi suggested Egyptian and Qatari mediators could work out such a deal with Israel in consultation with Palestinian armed groups.

    The Houthis have for months targeted Israel-linked cargo vessels with missile and drone strikes in support of Palestinians, promising to continue the attacks until Israel ends it war on Gaza.

    STATISTICS OCTOBER 7 – JULY 18:

    Palestinian death toll from October 7 – July 18: at least 39,424* (38,848 in Gaza* – 11,445 women (30%), 16,034 children as of June 17. [The Ministry’s figures have been contested by the Israeli authorities, although they have been accepted as accurate by Israeli intelligence services, the UN, and WHO. These data are supported by independent analyses, comparing changes in the number of deaths of UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) staff with those reported by the Ministry, which found claims of data fabrication implausible.]

    This is expected to be a significant undercount since thousands of those killed have yet to be identified – and at least 576 in the West Bank (~140 children). This does not include an estimated 10,000 more still buried under rubble (4,900 women and children). Euro-Med Monitor reports 46,848 Palestinian deaths.

    Lancet: “Applying a conservative estimate of four indirect deaths per one direct death9 to the 37,396 deaths reported, it is not implausible to estimate that up to 186 000 or even more deaths could be attributable to the current conflict in Gaza.

    Ralph Nader earlier estimated 200,000 Palestinians may have been killed in Gaza.

    At least 46 Palestinians have died in Israeli prisons (27 from Gaza, 18 from West Bank).
    At least 40 Palestinians have died due to malnutrition**.
    About 1.7 million, or 75% of Gaza’s population are currently displaced.
    2.15 million (out of total population of 2.3 million) are projected to face Crisis or worse levels of food insecurity.
    Palestinian injuries from October 7 – July 18: at least 94,879 (including at least 89,459 in Gaza and 5,420 in the West Bank, including 830 children).

    [It remains unknown how many Americans are among the casualties in Gaza.]
    Reported Israeli death toll from October 7 – July 18: ~1,481 (~1,139 on October 7, 2023, of which ~32 were Americans, and ~36 were children); 326 military forces since the ground invasion began in Gaza; 16 in the West Bank) and~8,730 injured.

    Times of Israel reports: The IDF listed 41 soldiers killed due to friendly fire in Gaza and other military-related accidents – nearly 16%.

    NOTE: It is unknown at this time how many of the deaths and injuries in Israel on October 7 were caused by Israeli soldiers.

    *Previously, IAK did not include 471 Gazans killed in the Al Ahli hospital blast since the source of the projectile was being disputed. However, given that much evidence points to Israel as the culprit, Israel had previously bombed the hospital and has attacked many others, Israel is prohibiting outside experts from investigating the scene, and since the UN and other agencies are including the deaths from the attack in their cumulative totals, if Americans knew is now also doing so.**

    Euro-Med Monitor reports that Gaza’s elderly are dying at an alarmingly high rate. The majority die at home and are buried either close to their residences or in makeshift graves dispersed across the Strip. There are currently more than 140 such cemeteries. Additionally, according to Euromed, thousands have died from starvation, malnourishment, and inadequate medical care; these are considered indirect victims as they were not registered in hospitals.

    † For most of the conflict, women and children accounted for about 70% of deaths in Gaza, with children making up a little over 40% of those killed, according to official statistics.

By IAK staff, from reports. New health crisis unfolds in Gaza as poliovirus found in sewage Andalou Agency reports: A new health crisis unfolded in the bombarded Gaza Strip with the detection of poliovirus in sewage, the Gaza Health Ministry revealed on Thursday. A ministry statement noted that “tests on sewage samples, conducted in coordination with UNICEF, confirmed the presence of the poliovirus.” The statement added that the presence of the virus in sewage, which flows through areas with displaced persons and residential zones due to infrastructure destruction, “represents a new health crisis.” The situation is exacerbated by severe overcrowding, scarce and contaminated water supplies, accumulated garbage, and the Israeli blockade on hygiene supplies. The ministry warned that the detection of the virus in sewage puts thousands of residents at risk of contracting polio. UNICEF and other organizations have been warning for months of the possibility of an outbreak if they weren’t able to get on top of vaccination programs and decontamination efforts in Gaza. But that has been impossible due to Israel’s ongoing war and the limits imposed by the Israeli military on the entry to Gaza of hygiene kits, vaccines and other essential medicines. Amnesty Int’l calls on Israel to end mass incommunicado detention and torture of Palestinians from Gaza From Amnesty’s website: Israeli authorities must end their indefinite incommunicado detention of Palestinians from the occupied Gaza Strip, without charge or trial under the Unlawful Combatants law, in flagrant violation of international law, said Amnesty International. The organization documented the cases of 27 Palestinian former detainees, including five women, 21 men and a 14-year-old boy, who were detained for periods of up to four and a half months without access to their lawyers or any contact with their families, in connection with this law. All those interviewed by Amnesty International said that during their incommunicado detention, which in some cases amounted to enforced disappearance, Israeli military, intelligence and police forces subjected them to torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment. The Unlawful Combatants Law grants the Israeli military sweeping powers to detain anyone from Gaza that they suspect of engagement in hostilities against Israel or posing a threat to state security for indefinitely renewable periods without having to produce evidence to substantiate the claims. “While international humanitarian law allows for the detention of individuals on imperative security grounds in situations of occupation, there must be safeguards to prevent indefinite or arbitrary detention and torture and other ill-treatment. This law blatantly fails to provide these safeguards. It enables rampant torture and, in some circumstances, institutionalizes enforced disappearance,” said Agnès Callamard, Secretary General of Amnesty International. “Our documentation illustrates how the Israeli authorities are using the Unlawful Combatants Law to arbitrarily round up Palestinian civilians from Gaza and toss them into a virtual black hole for prolonged periods without producing any evidence that they pose a security threat and without minimum due process. Israeli authorities must immediately repeal this law and release those arbitrarily detained under it.” (Read the full statement here.) Oxfam report: Water War Crimes: How Israel has weaponized water in its military campaign in Gaza Oxfam’s new 66-page report, released Wednesday, documents how since October, Israel has systematically reduced the water available in Gaza by 94%, with just 4.74 liters per resident obtainable each day—less than a third of the recommended minimum amount in emergencies. An average of five of Gaza’s water and sanitation sites have been taken out of service every three days, Oxfam found, reducing water production from sources in the Gaza Strip by 84% by late May. Gaza City, the enclave’s most populous city before it was largely destroyed by the bombardment, has lost 88% of its water wells. With Israel blocking fuel deliveries as well as food, medical, and other necessary aid, 100% of the city’s water desalination plants have been put out of service, making it impossible to treat seawater and brackish water to make it safe to drink. Seventy percent of sewage pumps and 100% of wastewater treatment plants have also been destroyed throughout the enclave. (Read the full report here, or a summary here.) West Bank – Israeli military drops threatening leaflets over Jenin camp The Israeli military has reportedly dropped leaflets in the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank, threatening to kill wanted young men if they do not surrender themselves. The leaflets, dropped via reconnaissance aircraft, were dropped near a mosque on Mahyoub Street in the camp. The Jenin area has long been a center of Palestinian resistance to Israel’s occupation in the West Bank and has witnessed some of the most intense fighting between Israeli forces and Palestinian armed groups since October 7. L.A. city council considers funding former IDF soldiers to patrol its streets The Intercept reports: The Los Angeles City Council is considering whether to give public funds to private, armed security patrols to protect its religious communities, following a protest against the marketing of West Bank settlement properties at an LA synagogue last month that turned violent. Anti-war group CodePink, which organizes pro-Palestine protests, said of the event, “The protest was solely focused on the illegal sale of Palestinian land. We respect religious practices and make sure our actions are directed toward real estate activities, not against worshippers,” No religious services were scheduled at the time of the real estate event. Pro-Israel counter protesters were also present at the same time, and reportedly used violence and racial slurs. Codepink claimed that Los Angeles police employed a double standard against the pro-Palestine protestors. In the immediate wake of the incident, city council members introduced a motion to give $1 million to several Jewish security organizations that would expand their work around Jewish schools, religious institutions, and neighborhoods – in spite of the fact that the protest was not against Jews. Magen Am, a nonprofit that runs armed patrol services and firearm training programs for the Jewish community, was named as the recipient of $350,000 in the motion. The group is largely made up of former Israeli soldiers, along with U.S. military veterans, according to the group’s website and social media posts. The majority of the former Israel Defense Forces soldiers in the group are “lone soldiers,” according to several reports, the term for individuals with no direct ties to the state of Israel who immigrate there to serve in the nation’s military. The city council has since introduced a new motion, which would give $2 million to various faith groups that want to hire additional security and does not mention Magen Am or any recipients by name. But LA activists are still concerned that city funds will go to an armed group with hard-line political stances. “The fact that Magen Am was even named in that original motion as a recipient of money, that exposes the intention,” said Miguel Camnitzer, an activist with Jewish Voice for Peace. The group is alarmed that city leaders are choosing to fund individuals who served a military that commits ethnic cleansing and genocide of the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank. “It’s the same military that’s enacting this genocide, and we’re going to have them patrolling our streets with guns seems wild to me,” Camnitzer said. The group also notes that the new motion does not include any provisions for keeping the recipients of city money accountable to the public interest. “We’re talking about essentially a private militia that can use force and detain people, and has no accountability.” (Read the full article here.) Over 1,000 attacks on healthcare in Occupied Palestinian Territory since October ReliefWeb reports: The World Health Organization (WHO) has registered more than 1,000 attacks on healthcare facilities in the Occupied Palestinian Territory since the October 7 terror attacks in Israel sparked the on-going war in Gaza, the agency’s top official in the region said on Wednesday. In a press briefing, Dr. Rik Peeperkorn, WHO representative for the West Bank and Gaza, told journalists there are currently no functional hospitals in the enclave’s southernmost city of Rafah, following Israel’s recent offensive there. The availability of hospital beds has drastically declined, dropping from 3,500 before the conflict erupted, to just 1,400 today, he added. He said 600 of those 1,400 are being provided by field hospitals “so currently from the Ministry of Health and NGO fixed hospitals, there’s only 800 hospital beds in service from the 3,500, plus 600 field hospital beds, for a population of 2.2 million people”. The WHO official also highlighted the urgency of allowing critically ill patients to leave Gaza, stating that around 10,000 patients still require urgent evacuation, half of whom are suffering from severe trauma – including spinal injuries and amputations.

The initiative was passed just days before Netanyahu’s visit to the US to address a joint session of Congress and meet with President Joe Biden at the White House. The move was likely to further irk Democrats uncomfortable with embracing an Israeli government that increasingly rejects a two-state solution. The resolution — passed 68-9 — altogether rejects the establishment of a Palestinian state, even as part of a negotiated settlement with Israel. “The Knesset of Israel firmly opposes the establishment of a Palestinian state west of Jordan. The establishment of a Palestinian state in the heart of the Land of Israel will pose an existential danger to the State of Israel and its citizens, perpetuate the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and destabilize the region,” the resolution stated. NOTE: The reality is the opposite of what the resolution states: rather than a Palestinian state being created in the “heart of the land of Israel,” the state of Israel was created in the heart of historic Palestine. Al-Aqsa Mosque stormed by far-right Israeli minister for fifth time Middle East Monitor reports: Israel’s far-right National Security Minister stormed into Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem yesterday, accompanied by a group of Israeli soldiers. Palestinian worshippers were barred from entering the site while Itamar Ben-Gvir was there. “I came here, to the most important place of the State of Israel [sic] and to the people of Israel, to pray for the return of the abductees to their home,” said right-ring extremist Ben-Gvir, “but without an illegitimate deal and surrender.” This was a reference to any ceasefire and prisoner exchange deal with the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, which he opposes. The incident on Wednesday marked the fifth time that Ben-Gvir has raided the mosque by force since becoming an Israeli minister in December 2022. The leader of the far-right Otzma Yehudit (Jewish Power) party is well-known for encouraging Israeli settlers to storm Al-Aqsa. Al-Aqsa Mosque compound is the third-holiest site in the world for Islam and Muslims. Jews call the area the Temple Mount, and there are plans to knock down the mosque and other Islamic buildings across the Noble Sanctuary, including the iconic Dome of the Rock Mosque, and build a temple in their place. Israeli government shelves plans to block terror convicts from running for Knesset: Report Middle East Eye reports: The Israeli government has shelved plans to pass legislation that would prevent terror convicts from running for the Knesset over concerns that it would impact far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir, Israel’s Kan public broadcaster reports. in 2008, Ben Gvir was convicted by the Jerusalem District Court of incitement to racism and supporting a terror organisation. Kan says that Likud MK Nissim Vaturi proposed the legislation on Sunday, which aims at preventing anyone who has ever been involved in terrorist activity from running from a Knesset seat, regardless of the severity of the crime. Netanyahu vetoes Gallant’s planned field hospital for Gaza kids The Times of Israel reports: A public fight broke out between Yoav Gallant and Benjamin Netanyahu Thursday over the medical treatment of Gaza children. Gallant announced on Wednesday that a field hospital for children would be established by the IDF in Israel, near the Gaza border, due to the extended closure of Gaza’s Rafah Crossing into Egypt, which Gazans had previously used in order to travel overseas for medical treatment. But Gallant’s announcement was apparently not coordinated with the prime minister. Netanyahu’s office reportedly informed Gallant that he would not approve the establishment of the field hospital “and for this reason it will not be established.” ICC to issue arrest warrants for Israeli leaders Netanyahu, Gallant ‘within two weeks’ The New Arab reports: The International Criminal Court (ICC) is expected to issue arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant within the next two weeks, Israeli media reported on Wednesday. A report by Israel’s Channel 14 cited unnamed Israeli officials who said they believed that it was “highly probable” that the arrest warrants would be issued in that time frame. This comes weeks after Netanyahu said in June that he expected the warrants to be issued before his address to the US Congress on 24 July, according to Ynet. ICC chief prosecutor Karim Khan applied for warrants against the two Israeli leaders on 20 May for the war crimes of using starvation as a weapon of war and wilful killing, among other charges. Ukraine makes humanitarian flour shipment to Palestinians The New Arab reports: Ukraine said Thursday that it had sent flour to the Palestinian territories as part of an initiative to ship free agricultural supplies to poor countries and regions. “Palestine received 1,000 tons of wheat flour,” Ukraine’s foreign ministry posted on X. “The shipment is the first of three deliveries intended for Palestine… It will support over 101,000 Palestinian families for a month,” it said. Kyiv launched the “Grain for Ukraine” initiative in a bid to ensure Russia’s invasion did not threaten its position as one of the world’s largest agricultural exporters. Ukraine did not say whether the flour was intended for Gaza, which is facing a humanitarian crisis and steep drops in the amount of aid that has reached the coastal strip during the war between Israel and Hamas. Kyiv was a major grain exporter to the Palestinians before Russia invaded Ukraine in 2022. US declares ‘mission complete’ for Gaza Aid Pier after delivering one day’s worth of food The Cradle reports: The Pentagon announced on 17 July that the floating pier built off the coast of Gaza would be dismantled for good, declaring its “mission complete” two months after it started operations. “Our assessment is that the temporary pier has achieved its intended effect to surge a very high volume of aid into Gaza and ensure that aid reaches the civilians in Gaza in a quick manner,” Cooper said, adding that nearly 20 million pounds of aid entered Gaza via the pier – the equivalent of about 600 truckloads. For months, the UN and other human rights organizations have established that a minimum of 500 to 600 truckloads of aid need to enter Gaza daily to alleviate critical famine conditions. A large part of the aid that reached Gaza via the pier rotted under the sun for weeks after the US and Israel used the alleged humanitarian corridor to launch a bloody rescue operation in Nuseirat camp that killed nearly 300 Palestinians. Cooper also announced that efforts to deliver aid to Gaza by sea would shift to the Israeli port of Ashdod. He added that, after US troops failed to re-attach the pier last week for a final time, about five million pounds of aid stranded in Cyprus and at sea will be heading to Ashdod. “Having now delivered the largest volume of humanitarian assistance ever into the Middle East, we’re now mission complete and transitioning to a new phase,” Cooper claimed. “In the coming weeks, we expect that millions of pounds of aid will enter into Gaza via this new pathway.” RECOMMENDED READING: What would you do with an extra $320 million? US elections 2024: Democratic Party platform backs Biden’s approach to Gaza, Middle East policy Middle East Eye reports: There will be very little change to President Joe Biden’s widely unpopular approach to Israel’s war on Gaza if he is reelected, a leaked draft of the Democratic Party’s platform for 2024 has revealed, indicating the party’s refusal to envisage any new headway in ending a war that has killed close to 40,000 Palestinians in 10 months. The 80-page platform, released by Politico and which will be endorsed next month during the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, includes a two-page section on the Middle East, in which it categorically condemns the Hamas-led attacks on southern Israel that took place on 7 October and reiterates that “the United States wants to see Hamas defeated”. The platform lists examples of Biden’s unwavering support for Israel’s war on Gaza, including the sending of arms shipments and providing a diplomatic shield for Israel at the United Nations during votes for a ceasefire and regarding concerns about human rights violations. (Read the full article here.) Speaker Mike Johnson Threatens to Arrest Lawmakers Who Disrupt Netanyahu’s Congress speech Ha’aretz reports: At the Republican Jewish Coalition’s “Salute to Pro-Israel Elected Officials” on the sidelines of the GOP convention, the only thing more palpable than leading officials’ support for Israel is their resentment toward Joe Biden and the Democratic Party. The event, attended by hundreds and including addresses from among the most senior Republican officials in America, was the convention’s clearest and firmest argument from the GOP that it is “the only-pro Israel party” amid the Democratic Party’s leftward shift amid the Gaza war. [EDITOR’S NOTE: The Democratic Party is also pro-Israel – see above article – but has made a few concessions to its constituents during the current war.] “We have been demonstrating that over and over and over,” House Speaker Mike Johnson said, noting the Republican efforts to attack the Biden administration over the delay of a shipment of 2,000 pound heavy-payload weapons. [Read about the effects of heavy bombs here.] “This is a moment for moral clarity and it’s unconscionable to us that the president and some leaders in Congress are unable to say what is good and what is evil,” he continued, addressing the pro-Palestinian protest movement on college campuses. [Read the truth about campus protests here.] He additionally forecasted future legislative action aimed at college endowments and protesters in America on student visas. Johnson further attacked Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer for delaying the invitation to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress. “The only reason this got done is because I went to the press corps,” he said, vowing that Capitol Police will arrest anyone who tries to disrupt Netanyahu’s speech. Former President Donald Trump spoke during the Republican National Convention saying: “We want our hostages back,” adding: “They better be back before I assume office or you will be paying a very big price.” Trump commented in his speech on Israel’s Iron Dome system, highlighting its part in intercepting a drone and missile attack from Iran in April. NOTE: Many conservative analysts disagree with this Israel-first position: US teachers’ union pushes for Israel divestment Members of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), one of the largest US unions, have put forth a resolution to divest from Israel bonds. “The AFT holds only one bond of a foreign government, … a country internationally accused of committing war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide,” they wrote in a statement. The AFT’s Israel bond, “which helps fund Israel’s scholasticide and genocide, and pays for Israel’s longstanding occupation of the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the apartheid regime against Palestinians everywhere”, is valued at $150,000. Groups Condemn Microsoft’s Unjust Blocking of Palestinian Skype and Email Accounts Al Haq, a Palestinian human rights organization, reports: The Palestinian Digital Rights Coalition and other groups released a statement Thursday condemning discriminatory actions by Microsoft against Palestinian users: The Palestinian Digital Rights Coalition and undersigned allies strongly condemn Microsoft’s recent treatment of Palestinian customers. The company’s recent actions of blocking Palestinian users’ email and Skype accounts, an unjust disruption that has severe consequences on their daily lives during a time of war, is not only an affront to basic human decency but also a violation of their fundamental rights. Access to technology and communication is crucial, especially in conflict zones where information and connectivity can mean the difference between life and death. Furthermore, Microsoft accounts provide access to communication platforms, bank accounts, and job opportunities. By blocking its services, Microsoft is effectively cutting Palestinians off from social, professional, and financial opportunities during a time of immense suffering and devastation. Microsoft’s decision to restrict its services to Palestinians at such a critical juncture is deeply troubling and cannot be justified. (Read the full statement here.) Houthis suggest Gaza aid deal with Israel for decrease in attacks on shipping Al Jazeera reports: A senior Houthi official in Yemen says if Israel allows desperately needed humanitarian aid into northern Gaza, the militia will cease some attacks on ships that visit the Umm al-Rashrash port, known in Israel as Eilat. Mohammed Ali al-Houthi said on X: “We say to the enemy if you allow the entry of aid into the north of Gaza, as much as you allow the Yemeni Mujahideen army will allow the delivery of similar quantities to the occupied port. The ball is in your court.” Al-Houthi suggested Egyptian and Qatari mediators could work out such a deal with Israel in consultation with Palestinian armed groups. The Houthis have for months targeted Israel-linked cargo vessels with missile and drone strikes in support of Palestinians, promising to continue the attacks until Israel ends it war on Gaza.

[The Ministry’s figures have been contested by the Israeli authorities, although they have been accepted as accurate by Israeli intelligence services, the UN, and WHO. These data are supported by independent analyses, comparing changes in the number of deaths of UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) staff with those reported by the Ministry, which found claims of data fabrication implausible.] This is expected to be a significant undercount since thousands of those killed have yet to be identified – and at least 576 in the West Bank (~140 children). This does not include an estimated 10,000 more still buried under rubble (4,900 women and children). Euro-Med Monitor reports 46,848 Palestinian deaths. Lancet: “Applying a conservative estimate of four indirect deaths per one direct death9 to the 37,396 deaths reported, it is not implausible to estimate that up to 186 000 or even more deaths could be attributable to the current conflict in Gaza. Ralph Nader earlier estimated 200,000 Palestinians may have been killed in Gaza. At least 46 Palestinians have died in Israeli prisons (27 from Gaza, 18 from West Bank). At least 40 Palestinians have died due to malnutrition**. About 1.7 million, or 75% of Gaza’s population are currently displaced. 2.15 million (out of total population of 2.3 million) are projected to face Crisis or worse levels of food insecurity. Palestinian injuries from October 7 – July 18: at least 94,879 (including at least 89,459 in Gaza and 5,420 in the West Bank, including 830 children). [It remains unknown how many Americans are among the casualties in Gaza.] Reported Israeli death toll from October 7 – July 18: ~1,481 (~1,139 on October 7, 2023, of which ~32 were Americans, and ~36 were children); 326 military forces since the ground invasion began in Gaza; 16 in the West Bank) and~8,730 injured. Times of Israel reports: The IDF listed 41 soldiers killed due to friendly fire in Gaza and other military-related accidents – nearly 16%. NOTE: It is unknown at this time how many of the deaths and injuries in Israel on October 7 were caused by Israeli soldiers. *Previously, IAK did not include 471 Gazans killed in the Al Ahli hospital blast since the source of the projectile was being disputed. However, given that much evidence points to Israel as the culprit, Israel had previously bombed the hospital and has attacked many others, Israel is prohibiting outside experts from investigating the scene, and since the UN and other agencies are including the deaths from the attack in their cumulative totals, if Americans knew is now also doing so.** Euro-Med Monitor reports that Gaza’s elderly are dying at an alarmingly high rate. The majority die at home and are buried either close to their residences or in makeshift graves dispersed across the Strip. There are currently more than 140 such cemeteries. Additionally, according to Euromed, thousands have died from starvation, malnourishment, and inadequate medical care; these are considered indirect victims as they were not registered in hospitals. † For most of the conflict, women and children accounted for about 70% of deaths in Gaza, with children making up a little over 40% of those killed, according to official statistics.

  • Non-Lethal Weapons Now Used as a Label for Self-Defense: Closer Review and Public Discussion Needed in This Age of Promoted Social Harassment
    Don't Forget Unlicensed Radio Devices: Why on earth are they allowed on planes?

    Ramola D
    Recent finds on a search for non lethal weapons on light planes in conjunction with the FCC approval of intentional radiators and unlicensed radio devices on manned and unmanned aircraft, discussed recently here—https://everydayconcerned.net/2024/07/14/treasonous-sorties-fcc-approval-of-high-frequency-short-range-radars-spotlights-the-targeted-assault-millions-report-intentional-radiators-unlicensed-radio-devices-low-flying-aircraft/—reveal that “self defense” has now become a category in which such weaponry, unlawfully being used on people worldwide today, is being surfaced.

    Is this how these tech-transferred military weapons are now being silently slipped into social awareness and use, without public disclosure at time of development and “testing” on people, without public discourse and debate, and without public approval?

    But what exactly are the weapons being surfaced here—are they the electromagnetic weapons and acoustic weapons developed by the Joint Steering Program Group involving both DARPA and DOJ, or by the DOD and its contractors? A look at these articles suggests some of them are:

    https://shadowfoxhq.com/non-lethal-weapons-plane/


    https://athlonoutdoors.com/article/non-lethal-self-defense-options/


    https://www.stunster.com/blog/tsa-guidelines-for-non-lethal-self-defense-devices-on-planes/


    Non-Lethal Self-Defense or Deadly Inhumane?

    The “Best Non Lethal Self Defense Weapons-2023” article lists various scary looking guns and stun guns and electrical assault weapons like the Taser, known to be outright inhumane—is it possible such horrific electrical weapons could now be being sold to people as “non lethal self-defense”? These look like Conducted Electrical Weapons self-permitted to the police by the police; can anyone and everyone now step out and buy a few, to whack people with? How did this happen?


    TSA Guidelines for Non Lethal Self Defense Devices

    Perusing the TSA article it sounds like knives and “kubotans” —rods to knock people out with—are ok to carry in cabins on planes. But how on earth did this happen? Has the TSA changed so much? The article is dated March 2024. A brief look at the TSA website shows they don’t permit knives in carry-ons, nor “kirpans”—no mention of “kubotans.” Cattle prods and ice picks are ok to carry in checked luggage though, apparently. And crochet hooks and knitting needles are ok in carry-ons. [I’m not sure if we’re reading satire here.]

    The TSA page is organized by category so perhaps closer review and writing to the TSA is in order here.


    https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/whatcanibring/sharp-objects

    As aware, educated, civic-minded Americans, this becomes one more task for all of us to stay focused on.

    How Comfortable Would You Be Knowing Your Plane Mates, All Sudden Targeters and Socially Harassive Now, are Carrying Pulse Radar Devices in their Cell Phones & iPads?

    According to the FCC, as covered here this week, pulse radar devices in the range 59.3 to 71.0 Ghz can be “installed in passengers’ personal portable equipment” for operations on-board aircraft.


    Passengers pointing pulse radar devices at each other—how sane is that? But this is exactly what is happening today, what this writer has certainly witnessed and experienced herself, as directed at her.

    Now how on earth is the TSA permitting this crazed behavior? Perhaps the TSA and FCC need to talk? And are people really letting the FBI, CIA, and DHS—who permit and set up these Pulsed-Radar-Pointing moments to sicken, debilitate, disable people on airplanes—get away with such crime? For how is this not crime?

    As this writer has further experienced and is perfectly aware of, the TSA in fact lets on board many many more weapons of sickening and inhumanity than mere cell phones and iPads with pulse-radar devices installed, weapons often carried in seeming laptop cases or violin cases or long tubes and able to send ELFs into seats, vibrations and pulsations into bodies, and pulse microwave onto people’s backs and heads and hearts. [Necessitating shielding and vigilance on planes.]

    “Community-Based Research,” “Community Policing,” “Community Monitoring” Which Has Bred Hatred, Racism, Discrimination, Rage, Anger, Misery, Despair Against and Between and Among People of All the Different Ethnicities Which Make Up America

    People today in the USA—and probably the whole world—have learned to hate each other pretty well now, based on skin-color and hair-color and size and shape, as directed by the sad “security” and “police” and “intelligence” city bosses with lies in hand as in FBI-folders of lies, False-Claim-NSLs, long unfolding programs of nonstop false-allegation, attempted entrapping, attempted manufacture of crime and nonstop Psy Ops, Phoenix ops of street theatre, directed conversations and actions and moments, and studied, set-up harassment and targeting of select people in every neighborhood.

    This is an atmosphere of social harassment and driven hate which defies American history and striving through colonialism, slavery, waves of immigration, and the striving for independence and expression of basic human and civil rights. We live in a world now where people distrust each other, are taught to hate and act against each other, and in fact enact crimes of racism and selective discrimination, crime, and harassment against each other.

    In such an atmosphere, do any of us want to board planes where the TSA kindly lets people carry pocket knives and crochet hooks? Or Pulse Radar devices in smart phones and iPads? (A subject to be covered more extensively shortly.)

    There is much here to get us all thinking and moving today, and much for each of us to do.

    This writer advises that everyone, literally everyone, get up to speed on these subjects and contact the TSA and request that no-one, absolutely no-one is let on planes carrying augmented cell phones and iPads and other electronics permitting pulse wave microwave assault—hidden as “monitoring” “health monitoring” “Public Safety Monitoring” and other such—on other passengers.

    Looking into this further online, “health monitoring” may be the way such things get authorized for use on planes, so perhaps that is the first subject to address. This article from Verizon shows that different kinds of monitors can be installed on smart phones, such as an “integrated heart monitor”:


    https://www.verizon.com/articles/what-can-a-smartphone-do/

    The question of whether those engaging in such paid, mercenary “monitoring” assault on others will communicate the fact of their phones being augmented also rises. Perhaps all these are covert operations—in which case, how can the TSA address this best? Does the TSA really “care” about us?

    This is obviously a huge subject which needs public discussion, but the information from the FCC establishes for us this is actually happening and being permitted by the TSA, by airlines, by the FAA, and by airport security—and shouldn’t be.

    Please visit the TSA website and find someone to speak to or write to at the Contact Center: https://www.tsa.gov/travel/tsa-cares.

    As passengers, we should All be able to fly—and visit airports—safe and free from pulsed radar and vibrations, gruesome headaches, sudden respiratory trouble, projectile vomiting and manufactured heart attacks, not to mention the threat of pocket knives from crazed graduate students in “Neuropsychiatry” aiming for Psych Terror, not just some of us.

A look at these articles suggests some of them are: https://shadowfoxhq.com/non-lethal-weapons-plane/ https://athlonoutdoors.com/article/non-lethal-self-defense-options/ https://www.stunster.com/blog/tsa-guidelines-for-non-lethal-self-defense-devices-on-planes/ Non-Lethal Self-Defense or Deadly Inhumane? The “Best Non Lethal Self Defense Weapons-2023” article lists various scary looking guns and stun guns and electrical assault weapons like the Taser, known to be outright inhumane—is it possible such horrific electrical weapons could now be being sold to people as “non lethal self-defense”? These look like Conducted Electrical Weapons self-permitted to the police by the police; can anyone and everyone now step out and buy a few, to whack people with? How did this happen? TSA Guidelines for Non Lethal Self Defense Devices Perusing the TSA article it sounds like knives and “kubotans” —rods to knock people out with—are ok to carry in cabins on planes. But how on earth did this happen? Has the TSA changed so much? The article is dated March 2024. A brief look at the TSA website shows they don’t permit knives in carry-ons, nor “kirpans”—no mention of “kubotans.” Cattle prods and ice picks are ok to carry in checked luggage though, apparently. And crochet hooks and knitting needles are ok in carry-ons. [I’m not sure if we’re reading satire here.] The TSA page is organized by category so perhaps closer review and writing to the TSA is in order here. https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/whatcanibring/sharp-objects As aware, educated, civic-minded Americans, this becomes one more task for all of us to stay focused on. How Comfortable Would You Be Knowing Your Plane Mates, All Sudden Targeters and Socially Harassive Now, are Carrying Pulse Radar Devices in their Cell Phones & iPads? According to the FCC, as covered here this week, pulse radar devices in the range 59.3 to 71.0 Ghz can be “installed in passengers’ personal portable equipment” for operations on-board aircraft. Passengers pointing pulse radar devices at each other—how sane is that? But this is exactly what is happening today, what this writer has certainly witnessed and experienced herself, as directed at her. Now how on earth is the TSA permitting this crazed behavior? Perhaps the TSA and FCC need to talk? And are people really letting the FBI, CIA, and DHS—who permit and set up these Pulsed-Radar-Pointing moments to sicken, debilitate, disable people on airplanes—get away with such crime? For how is this not crime? As this writer has further experienced and is perfectly aware of, the TSA in fact lets on board many many more weapons of sickening and inhumanity than mere cell phones and iPads with pulse-radar devices installed, weapons often carried in seeming laptop cases or violin cases or long tubes and able to send ELFs into seats, vibrations and pulsations into bodies, and pulse microwave onto people’s backs and heads and hearts. [Necessitating shielding and vigilance on planes.] “Community-Based Research,” “Community Policing,” “Community Monitoring” Which Has Bred Hatred, Racism, Discrimination, Rage, Anger, Misery, Despair Against and Between and Among People of All the Different Ethnicities Which Make Up America People today in the USA—and probably the whole world—have learned to hate each other pretty well now, based on skin-color and hair-color and size and shape, as directed by the sad “security” and “police” and “intelligence” city bosses with lies in hand as in FBI-folders of lies, False-Claim-NSLs, long unfolding programs of nonstop false-allegation, attempted entrapping, attempted manufacture of crime and nonstop Psy Ops, Phoenix ops of street theatre, directed conversations and actions and moments, and studied, set-up harassment and targeting of select people in every neighborhood. This is an atmosphere of social harassment and driven hate which defies American history and striving through colonialism, slavery, waves of immigration, and the striving for independence and expression of basic human and civil rights. We live in a world now where people distrust each other, are taught to hate and act against each other, and in fact enact crimes of racism and selective discrimination, crime, and harassment against each other. In such an atmosphere, do any of us want to board planes where the TSA kindly lets people carry pocket knives and crochet hooks? Or Pulse Radar devices in smart phones and iPads? (A subject to be covered more extensively shortly.) There is much here to get us all thinking and moving today, and much for each of us to do. This writer advises that everyone, literally everyone, get up to speed on these subjects and contact the TSA and request that no-one, absolutely no-one is let on planes carrying augmented cell phones and iPads and other electronics permitting pulse wave microwave assault—hidden as “monitoring” “health monitoring” “Public Safety Monitoring” and other such—on other passengers. Looking into this further online, “health monitoring” may be the way such things get authorized for use on planes, so perhaps that is the first subject to address. This article from Verizon shows that different kinds of monitors can be installed on smart phones, such as an “integrated heart monitor”: https://www.verizon.com/articles/what-can-a-smartphone-do/ The question of whether those engaging in such paid, mercenary “monitoring” assault on others will communicate the fact of their phones being augmented also rises. Perhaps all these are covert operations—in which case, how can the TSA address this best? Does the TSA really “care” about us? This is obviously a huge subject which needs public discussion, but the information from the FCC establishes for us this is actually happening and being permitted by the TSA, by airlines, by the FAA, and by airport security—and shouldn’t be. Please visit the TSA website and find someone to speak to or write to at the Contact Center: https://www.tsa.gov/travel/tsa-cares. As passengers, we should All be able to fly—and visit airports—safe and free from pulsed radar and vibrations, gruesome headaches, sudden respiratory trouble, projectile vomiting and manufactured heart attacks, not to mention the threat of pocket knives from crazed graduate students in “Neuropsychiatry” aiming for Psych Terror, not just some of us. https://ramolad.substack.com/p/non-lethal-weapons-now-used-as-a?utm_medium=web&triedRedirect=true

  • As Trump Taps America First VP, Top Jewish Republican Insists GOP Is …
    Jul 17, 2024 3:29 am IDT
    Matt Brooks, CEO of Republican Jewish Coalition, holds a kippa branded with Donald Trump's name during his speech at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
    MILWAUKEE – Republican Jewish Coalition CEO Matt Brooks addressed the Republican National Convention on Tuesday, offering the most significant plea toward American Jews to date on why they should defy decades of precedent and vote for Donald Trump over Joe Biden.

    Brooks, in a three-minute address during a prime speaking slot, implored the crowd to cheer with Israel — which they did enthusiastically.

    "If you tried that at the Democratic convention, you'd be booed off the stage," he said, describing the 2024 election as a critical moment for both the American-Jewish community and Israel.
    "This is our chance to continue the incredible pro-Israel legacy of the most pro-Israel president in history: Donald J. Trump," Brooks said, highlighting the former president's frequently cited list of accomplishments like moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, weakening Iran and the Abraham Accords.

    "Under President Trump, we will repair and rebuild the U.S.-Israel relationship that has deteriorated after four disastrous years under President Biden," he continued.

    "Nine months after the historic Hamas attacks, President Biden is still withholding critical arms that Israel needs to defend itself," Brooks said. Biden is withholding half of a single shipment of 2,000-pound bombs amid concerns that Israel would use them in highly concentrated civilian areas.

    "We must stand with the Israeli people," he continued. "My message here today to the Jewish community is clear: there is only one pro-Israel party and it's the Republican Party."

    Brooks vowed that Trump would "put a stop to the rising tide of antisemitism. President Trump will bring back law and order so that American Jews can once again wear a kippah and walk the streets," holding a red kippah adorned with Trump's name.
    "President Trump will stop Hamas on the college campus and Jewish students feel safe when they go into class," he continued. "The Jewish community is ready to help elect Donald Trump and J.D. Vance. The Jewish vote continue to increase for Republicans year after year, and I promise you 2024 will be no different."
    Brooks stressed Trump will "stand up to the Hamas sympathizers in the squad" while thanking the Republican Party for "elevating Jewish voices."

    Speaking to Haaretz and other reporters after his speech, Brooks stressed this is the first time he can remember true insecurity among the Jewish community.

    "This is a dangerous time for the for the Jewish community," he said. "People can trust him to take a firmer hand on cracking down on the chaos on the college campuses and really temper the rise of antisemitism and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the Jewish community."

    Brooks' speech comes 24 hours after Trump tapped J.D. Vance as his running mate. While the RJC praised Vance's appointment, the Ohio senator notably voted against providing Israel with $14 billion in emergency assistance due to its pairing with Ukraine aid.
    Brooks' organization notably halted fundraising for other Republicans who voted alongside Vance, begging the question why Vance could be excepted.

    "Fundamentally these guys have a difference of opinion on the bill," Brooks said, noting that he and RJC Chair Norm Coleman held a Zoom call with Vance 72 hours before Trump's announcement.

    "I am confident if you look at everything that he has said," encouraging people to watch his recent speech at the Quincy Institute. "Everything he has said at other speeches, he is going to be an absolute stalwart friend of Israel and a rock-solid supporter."

    Brooks further noted that "he's also the vice president to the most pro-Israel president in history. The president sets the foreign policy agenda, and I don't think there's any daylight between Donald Trump and J.D. Vance when it comes to Israel and making sure Israel is safe and secure."

    Vance's political ascendance is the greatest victory yet for the America First isolationist wing of the GOP — a development inherently at odds with Brooks' organization, which he describes as "Reaganesque" with a robust foreign policy with peace-through-strength at its core.

    "It's a debate we're having within our party, there's no question about it. But at the end of the day, through the leadership of people like Speaker Johnson and others — we got aid to Ukraine through with strong Republican support — so it's just a debate that we're going to have."

    "America has got a unique role in the world to help defend liberty and support democracy and fight back against totalitarianism. We're going to continue to wage that battle in the party and make sure the Tucker Carlson-wing of the party doesn't get a foothold," he said.

    Carlson and Vance notably flanked Trump in his booth at the convention on Monday, illustrating just how much of a battle may lie ahead for the RJC and likeminded Republicans.

    Brooks further defended Trump amid criticism of his frequent allegation on the campaign trail that American Jews who vote for Democrats are "disloyal" — a brazen statement that many U.S. Jews consider an antisemitic trope.

    "Disloyal in his mind to Israel because they're supportive of the Squad and Biden's efforts to hold back critical arms and weapons it needs to fight back against Hamas. It's hard to disagree with that. This is an existential threat that Israel faces," he says.

    "There's literally not a day that goes by, whether someone is Jewish or not Jewish," he says, "where somebody doesn't call me and say 'I don't understand the Jewish community, how can they continue to vote Democrat,'" citing the rise of the progressive left. "It's the same question that Donald Trump is asking, but in a Trumpian way."

    "You've got to look at all these data points," he continues, "and it's clear there is one pro-Israel party. That's what has people like Donald Trump and others who come up to me every day perplexed."

    Despite this, American Jews are still widely expected to vote for Biden over Trump — consistent with years of the U.S. Jewish community voting Democratic over Republican.

    "Our goal is to continue to make inroads and do better than we did in the last election. This is a process. If you look at the trend lines, we keep growing incrementally year-after-year and my hope is that we will continue to still do that," he says.

    Brooks' appearance comes one night before Israeli-American hostage Omer Neutra's parents will address the convention and one week before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to visit Washington, where he will meet with Biden and address a joint session of Congress.
    When asked what he hopes to see in Netanyahu's speech, Brooks says he wants the prime minister to "help shift public opinion back" to why Israel is conducting the Gaza war to begin with.

    "The farther we get away from October 7, it looks more and more like Israel is not being the victim but being the aggressor. I hope that he's able to tug at the heartstrings of the American people," he says.
    "It is not our position to tell the democratically elected Government of Israel what they should or shouldn't do," Brooks says when asked if Netanyahu should accept the cease-fire deal currently on the table.

    "We will support the decision of the government when the decision is made, but it's not for us here in America to be offering our opinion as to what we think they should or shouldn't do on something of this significance," he says.

    While this appears to contrast with Trump and Vance's calls for Israel to conclude the war "as quickly as possible," Brooks says people are misinterpreting the statement.

    "What he's basically saying is 'you have a blank check: if you need to carpet-bomb the area, do it, just get it done. Rip the band-aid off, finish the job because Hamas needs to be destroyed.'"

    "This is just taking months and months," he continues. "All he's saying — and he's exactly right —is that time is not Israel's ally. The longer this continues, the more public support erodes and the more international support erodes. Trump's point was 'do what you have to do, get it done and get out.'"

    Brooks further insists that should Trump win the election, there will be "a number of high-profile folks who are pro-Israel — some who are Jewish, some who are not — very interested" in serving the administration.

    He adds he has no concern about a relationship between Trump and Netanyahu, despite their well-established tensions of recent years.
    "As somebody who has had conversations with the president and prime minister, I can assure you that he and the prime minister, that the two of them, will have a very positive and productive working relationship," he says.

    "I will not share conversations that I have had with the president, but I have absolute certainty, based on my conversations the relationship between Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Trump will be productive, fruitful and pick up right where it left off," he says.

    When asked if he expects Trump and Netanyahu to meet next week during the prime minister's visit, he played coy. "I do not know the answer to that."

    When asked if it is possible they will meet, he responded: "They're in the same country, anything's possible."

  • Israel murdered a family of bakers, but their recipe lives on

    Israel murdered a family of bakers, but their recipe lives on
    Gazan knafeh from the Saqallah family bakery. Gaza, 2017.
    On most of my trips to Gaza, a common treat we enjoyed was Gazan knafeh, كنافة عربية, knafah arabiya. The typical image that comes to mind when thinking of knafeh is the cheesy kind found in Nablus. In Gaza, though, there is a special kind that can't be found anywhere else.

    Unlike Nabulsi knafeh, Gazan knafeh is full of walnuts, nutmeg, and cinnamon, but notably, no cheese. It is nutty, hearty, and indescribably delicious. It is incredibly filling and pairs perfectly with coffee; a local delicacy that I wish everyone could try.

    I would always look forward to having some at one of the most well known and famous knafeh shops in Gaza: Abu Al Saoud, also known as Saqallah's sweet shop.


    Me standing in front of Abu Al Saoud (the Saqallah family's sweet shop). Gaza, 2017.
    Before the on-going genocide, everyday Palestinians in Gaza suffered immensely from Israel's blockade and occupation. Their suffering is extremely well documented. They lived in a place where the number of calories allowed entry through the blockade per human being are computed like a math equation. Israel often adjusts the area of the Gazan sea where fishing is allowed which affects how much and what kinds of fish are available. It is clear that these actions are collective punishment with the goal to cause immense suffering upon a captive civilian population and demonstrate the immense control Israel has over Palestinians.

    Despite all of this immense suffering, Gazans have found creative and ingenious ways to create delicious food with the very scarce resources they had access to, when they were available.

    The Gaza Kitchen: A Palestinian Culinary Journey is a marvelous cookbook that catalogs local Gazan recipes combined with the stories of everyday Gazans. It even has the Saqallah family's knafeh arabiya recipe recorded for those with strong enough baking skills to attempt to reproduce at home.

    As famine spreads across Gaza during the genocide happening now, I find myself plunged into sorrow and despair. I try to distract myself, but my thoughts constantly shift to my friends and their families who are still in Gaza. Will they starve to death? Why are we allowing this to happen? Why won't anyone do anything to stop this?


    Close up shot of Gazan knafeh. Gaza, 2017.
    In a futile attempt to quiet my mind, I began researching Gazan knafeh so that I could make an attempt at baking it at home. My naïve hope for a temporary distraction was shattered instantly. While researching the Saqallah family's recipe, I learned Israel brutally murdered 30 to 40 members of the Saqallah family in the early weeks of this genocide. Everyone who was in the family home was killed in an Israeli airstrike, leaving a horrific scene with "body parts flung on the ground."

    An entire family summarily executed; another unspeakably horrific crime perpetrated by the Israeli government, among many, many more.

    I don't even have the words to express the immense rage and anger that I felt when I stumbled on this while simply researching a dessert recipe.

    Who knows how many family recipes, local delicacies, and tiny aspects of Gazan culture have already been lost forever in Israel's continued genocide and ethnic cleansing of Gaza?

    As we watch these crimes against humanity streamed to us live on the internet, our "leaders" continue to support and embolden these actions by providing endless aid to the Israeli government with no strings attached. Why must an entire civilian population of millions be murdered, displaced, and have their culture erased? What greater purpose could this possibly serve?


    In exceedingly rare instances, Gazan knafeh seems to slip through checkpoints. No one knows how. Gazan knafeh being shared at SnoBar in Ramallah, July 2023.
    I am so incredibly thankful that the Saqallah family's recipe was recorded in The Gaza Kitchen. The simple act of recording a recipe is a tiny, but meaningful act of resistance against an oppressor with billions of dollars in military aid. Recording this recipe ensures it won't be lost and that it will continue to live on. It stands as a small, but powerful reminder that while the Israeli government can turn any brief moment of happiness in Gaza into a living nightmare, it will never succeed in its ultimate goal of deleting Gaza in its entirety.

    The parts of Gaza in our photos, memories, stories, recipes, and hearts will live on forever and no one, not even the Israeli government, can ever take that away.

    Special thanks to my friend Anam Raheem for her tireless effort reading and providing feedback on my posts. Read her work on her blog.

    Israel murdered a family of bakers, but their recipe lives on Joe DamatoJul 12, 2024 Joe Damato Israel murdered a family of bakers, but their recipe lives on Gazan knafeh from the Saqallah family bakery. Gaza, 2017. On most of my trips to Gaza, a common treat we enjoyed was Gazan knafeh, كنافة عربية, knafah arabiya. The typical image that comes to mind when thinking of knafeh is the cheesy kind found in Nablus. In Gaza, though, there is a special kind that can't be found anywhere else. Unlike Nabulsi knafeh, Gazan knafeh is full of walnuts, nutmeg, and cinnamon, but notably, no cheese. It is nutty, hearty, and indescribably delicious. It is incredibly filling and pairs perfectly with coffee; a local delicacy that I wish everyone could try. I would always look forward to having some at one of the most well known and famous knafeh shops in Gaza: Abu Al Saoud, also known as Saqallah's sweet shop. Me standing in front of Abu Al Saoud (the Saqallah family's sweet shop). Gaza, 2017. Before the on-going genocide, everyday Palestinians in Gaza suffered immensely from Israel's blockade and occupation. Their suffering is extremely well documented. They lived in a place where the number of calories allowed entry through the blockade per human being are computed like a math equation. Israel often adjusts the area of the Gazan sea where fishing is allowed which affects how much and what kinds of fish are available. It is clear that these actions are collective punishment with the goal to cause immense suffering upon a captive civilian population and demonstrate the immense control Israel has over Palestinians. Despite all of this immense suffering, Gazans have found creative and ingenious ways to create delicious food with the very scarce resources they had access to, when they were available. The Gaza Kitchen: A Palestinian Culinary Journey is a marvelous cookbook that catalogs local Gazan recipes combined with the stories of everyday Gazans. It even has the Saqallah family's knafeh arabiya recipe recorded for those with strong enough baking skills to attempt to reproduce at home. As famine spreads across Gaza during the genocide happening now, I find myself plunged into sorrow and despair. I try to distract myself, but my thoughts constantly shift to my friends and their families who are still in Gaza. Will they starve to death? Why are we allowing this to happen? Why won't anyone do anything to stop this? Close up shot of Gazan knafeh. Gaza, 2017. In a futile attempt to quiet my mind, I began researching Gazan knafeh so that I could make an attempt at baking it at home. My naïve hope for a temporary distraction was shattered instantly. While researching the Saqallah family's recipe, I learned Israel brutally murdered 30 to 40 members of the Saqallah family in the early weeks of this genocide. Everyone who was in the family home was killed in an Israeli airstrike, leaving a horrific scene with "body parts flung on the ground." An entire family summarily executed; another unspeakably horrific crime perpetrated by the Israeli government, among many, many more. I don't even have the words to express the immense rage and anger that I felt when I stumbled on this while simply researching a dessert recipe. Who knows how many family recipes, local delicacies, and tiny aspects of Gazan culture have already been lost forever in Israel's continued genocide and ethnic cleansing of Gaza? As we watch these crimes against humanity streamed to us live on the internet, our "leaders" continue to support and embolden these actions by providing endless aid to the Israeli government with no strings attached. Why must an entire civilian population of millions be murdered, displaced, and have their culture erased? What greater purpose could this possibly serve? In exceedingly rare instances, Gazan knafeh seems to slip through checkpoints. No one knows how. Gazan knafeh being shared at SnoBar in Ramallah, July 2023. I am so incredibly thankful that the Saqallah family's recipe was recorded in The Gaza Kitchen. The simple act of recording a recipe is a tiny, but meaningful act of resistance against an oppressor with billions of dollars in military aid. Recording this recipe ensures it won't be lost and that it will continue to live on. It stands as a small, but powerful reminder that while the Israeli government can turn any brief moment of happiness in Gaza into a living nightmare, it will never succeed in its ultimate goal of deleting Gaza in its entirety. The parts of Gaza in our photos, memories, stories, recipes, and hearts will live on forever and no one, not even the Israeli government, can ever take that away.

  • Why Sherpas & Billionaires Don't Get Jet Lag Can Fix Chronic Disease
    Synchronizing biological clocks, GIGO vs QIQO, implications for modern environmental mismatches and healing chronic disease.

    Dr. Syed Haider

    There is no sleep as delicious as jet-lagged sleep.

    But it’s also inconvenient, especially if you need to get back to work, or make the most of precious vacation time.

    Like many living in modern industrialized societies today I have a lot of experience with globe trotting jet lag. I always get constipated for a few days (not the first thing you think of with jet lag, but it happens), and of course suffer through the usual daytime fatigue lulling me to sleep in the afternoon only to wake up again at 2 - 4am.

    Jet lag can also cause a lot of other symptoms in susceptible people:

    Digestive upset including the aforementioned constipation, but also nausea, bloating, and changes in appetite

    Headaches, trouble concentrating, impaired judgment and decision making, memory lapses.

    Irritability, apathy, anxiety, and depression.

    Recovery times vary person to person, but can take as long as a day for each time zone crossed, especially if you don’t make much effort to resist the enticing daytime sleep.

    The advice I’ve gotten over the years to minimize jet lag from hard charging, Type-A acquaintances who can’t suffer the downtime:

    once travel begins, eat on the destination schedule (so decline all the weirdly timed airline food)

    spend a couple hours in the noon-time sun for a couple days on arrival

    get grounded at the destination

    take melatonin

    Thank you for reading Dr. Syed Haider. This post is public so feel free to share it.

    Numbers 1 and 2 help to get your body on the correct circadian rhythm, though I’ve since learned early morning sun is even more important than afternoon sun for this purpose.

    Grounding is a source of free electrons that are required to run your body's DC bio-electrical currents, and they also have powerful antioxidant effects. Free electrons can bypass inflammatory tissue barriers that can keep out chemical antioxidants.

    Melatonin is thought of as the sleep hormone, though it has many other effects on our biology including immune regulation, direct and indirect antioxidant effects, hormonal regulation, blood pressure lowering, and anti-cancer properties. The melatonin released by the pineal gland at night puts us to sleep, but 95% of the melatonin in our bodies resides within our mitochondria which are the energy powerhouses within every cell.


    Melatonin is only released by the pineal gland in response to darkness. It’s commonly used by shift workers, and globetrotters alike to re-set their circadian rhythms quickly. There are documented side effects of melatonin use including headaches, nausea, dizziness and agitation, which suggest that it may not be as benign as many people make it out to be.

    Generally speaking it’s best not to try to hack biology by exogenous administration of endogenously created substances: if you make it, don’t take it, because there may be unpredictable butterfly effects that are impossible to trace back.

    An apt metaphor for this kind of biohacking is attempting to code a computer in the base machine language of 1s and 0s which is basically impossible for humans to understand. Where the metaphor breaks down is that at least we know how to perfectly map human interpretable languages to machine language (using compilers), but we don’t know all the rules of our own biochemistry, there are missing pieces and the interrelationships in living systems are too unpredictable and complex to model in each patient. It is probable impossible to ever sort it out because humans are not simple automatons. Everything we think, feel and believe affects our biology and biochemistry. How can you model all of that without a direct interface into a person’s mind and heart?

    Organization of Computer Systems: ISA, Machine Language, Number Systems
    All of melatonin’s effects sound great in theory, but you can have too much of a good thing, especially when that thing is part of an intricate network of feedback loops, where exogenous administration artificially affects many other things that suddenly react to greater than expected melatonin levels at the “wrong” time according to the body’s own biological clocks.

    Exogenous melatonin can lower cortisol (pro-inflammatory), suppress fertility, raise growth hormone, cause relative insulin resistance and relative hypothyroid effects. Melatonin is the body’s strongest antioxidant, but we know that antioxidants in excess can exhibit pro-oxidant effects. This might be helpful for cancer since that can kill cancer cells, but it might be harmful as well to regular cells and their mitochondria.

    Excess melatonin will also disrupt serotonin metabolism because Serotonin is the precursor used to make melatonin. If the body gets melatonin from outside then there will be excess serotonin, which wasn’t needed to make melatonin. This is why melatonin is relatively contraindicated in those taking SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) which also increase serotonin levels. Elevated levels of serotonin can cause insomnia, anxiety, irritability and gut upset among other things, perhaps helping explain why chronic melatonin use so often doesn’t help patients with refractory insomnia (more on chronic effects of melatonin use towards the end).

    Even short term some of these might help explain negative side effects experienced by some when taking melatonin, and there might be mid term effects that aren’t connected back to the melatonin administration - hypothetically speaking, if you come down with something 2 weeks after taking melatonin how likely are you to make the connection?

    I acknowledge that many people will use melatonin anyway (I used it too in the past), it just goes against my c current understanding of the principles of health.

    But no worries, theres much more interesting stuff below: what private jets can teach us about jet lag and how to prevent it!

    Not All Jets Lag


    A little known and almost universally inaccessible approach to preventing jet lag is worth examining anyway because of what it might teach us about jet lag and what we can do about it (an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure).

    I learned from a famous private jet salesman on Youtube (to be clear I wasn’t in the market for a private jet) that flying at lower altitudes with better cabin pressure prevents jet lag because oxygen tension remains higher throughout the flight - if this personal observation is true, it would explain why super-billionaires don’t all fly in Airbus size jumbo jets, but tend to prefer the Gulfstream, which has the highest cabin pressure of any private jet. The Gulfstream G600 can maintain an effective cabin “altitude” of 3,800 feet even at a cruising altitude of 45,000 feet.

    Steve Varsano : The Jet Business - Ultimate Jet | The Voice of Business Aviation since 2008
    Jet salesman Steve Varsano’s jet-interior-shaped office space
    On the other hand commercial airlines usually maintain a cabin pressure equivalent to an altitude of 6,000 to 8,000 feet. So flying in a Gulfstream is easier than staying in Denver Colorado (elevation 5000 ft), while flying commercial is the equivalent of rapidly ascending a tall mountain within a matter of minutes, a feat that can lead to high altitude sickness (HAS) in 25% of those who sleep above 8000 feet, and can cause symptoms in more sensitive people at much lower elevations.

    So maybe jet lag is a subset of mild high altitude sickness (i.e. oxygen/energy deprivation) that makes it harder to adjust to a new time zone.

    That would suggest that treatments for high altitude sickness, or mimicking the physiological changes that occur when someone acclimates to higher altitudes over time might help with jet lag (and be much more accessible than flying private).


    Acclimatization to high altitudes involves several physiological changes that help the body cope with lower oxygen levels. Key mechanisms include:

    Increased Ventilation: Breathing rate and depth increase to intake more oxygen.

    Red Blood Cell Production: The body produces more red blood cells to enhance oxygen transport.

    Hemoglobin Affinity: Hemoglobin’s affinity for oxygen adjusts to release oxygen more efficiently to tissues.

    Capillary Density: Capillaries may increase in number, improving oxygen delivery to tissues.

    Mitochondrial Efficiency: Cellular adaptations enhance energy production efficiency under low oxygen conditions.

    Thank you for reading Dr. Syed Haider. This post is public so feel free to share it.

    The top of the list of treatments for high altitude sickness is obviously just to go back down to a lower altitude and/or get more oxygen (mimicking number 1 - 4 above). Equally obviously in an airplane you’re not going to be able to go back down for the duration, but you could super-oxygenate yourself using a portable oxygen concentrator (available via prescription. details on flying with one here). It’s not safe to use 100% oxygen for prolonged periods, but you could titrate the device to deliver just enough oxygen to counteract the effects of the lower oxygen tension on flights that cruise at effective altitudes of 6-8000 feet.

    Traveling with a Portable Oxygen Concentrator (Tips) | 2024
    Running the calculations on a typical flight with cabin pressure set to the equivalent of 6000 feet above sea level we find that you only need about half a liter per minute from the oxygen concentrator in the average person to raise inspired oxygen concentration enough to counteract the effects of altitude and give you the same amount of oxygen delivery you would expect at sea level.

    A more convenient and cheaper alternative to lugging around a portable oxygen concentrator is prescription acetazolamide (diamox) carried by many hikers who’ve had experience with altitude sickness before. Acetazolamide works primarily by removing bicarbonate (baking soda is sodium bicarbonate) from your bloodstream into your urine and therefore causing metabolic acidosis in your body, which stimulates your brain to increase your breathing rate, which then increases your blood oxygen levels.

    There is another little known possibility for the treatment and prevention of acute mountain sickness which is the simple, cheap and readily available chemical ammonium chloride. Its chemical decomposition in the bloodstream leads to the creation of hydrogen ions and CO2. Hydrogen ions bind and neutralize bicarb lower the pH by a different avenue than diamox, but having the same effect to stimulate respiration. Increased CO2 levels will also stimulate increased respiration. So both would tend to raise oxygen levels as a result.


    Apparently useful for a number of indications including kidney stones, digestive trouble, preventing metabolic diseases and to give goats a beautiful sheen on their coat for shows.
    There was one small study published in 1937 where a dozen volunteers took 5 grams of ammonium chloride three times a day with meals (much higher than normal dosing ranges for its one remaining medical indication, severe metabolic alkalosis) while ascending to altitude. Unfortunately the results were weirdly completely the opposite of what you might expect, which raises the possibility that pharmaceutical industry bias creot in as it usually does when any simple non-prescription therapy threatens the status quo. That paper also referenced a few other preliminary research findings that had seemed promising at 1/10th the dose. Given the mechanisms at play it would be interesting if someone revisited this research.

    Traditional herbal remedies for high altitude sickness might be helpful as well, and I suspect gentler and safer than acetazolamide (though none that we know of work exactly the same way it does):

    Sea Buckthorn ("Shan-Ji" in TCM)

    Mechanism: Sea buckthorn is rich in antioxidants, vitamins (especially vitamin C), and fatty acids, which can enhance oxygen utilization and reduce oxidative stress at high altitudes.

    Studies: Research has shown that sea buckthorn can improve high-altitude polycythemia (an increase in red blood cells due to low oxygen levels), which helps in better oxygen transport and utilization in the body.

    Rhodiola algida ("Hong Jing Tian" in TCM)

    Mechanism: Rhodiola algida contains active compounds like salidroside and rosavin, which are known to enhance physical performance, reduce fatigue, and increase resistance to stress. These properties can be beneficial in preventing AMS by improving the body's ability to cope with hypoxia (low oxygen levels).

    Studies: It is traditionally used by Tibetan people to prevent AMS. Experimental studies suggest that Rhodiola spp. can improve acclimatization and reduce symptoms of AMS by enhancing oxygen efficiency and reducing oxidative stress.

    Zuo-Mu-A decoction (no English name found)

    Mechanism: This traditional Tibetan medicine contains various herbs that are believed to work synergistically to enhance acclimatization to high altitudes. The exact mechanism is not fully understood, but it is thought to improve blood oxygenation and reduce oxidative stress.

    Studies: Experimental studies in rats have demonstrated its efficacy in preventing high-altitude polycythemia, indicating a potential benefit in improving oxygen delivery and reducing AMS symptoms.

    Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba)

    Mechanism: Ginkgo biloba is known for its vasodilatory properties, which can improve blood flow and oxygen delivery to tissues. It also has strong antioxidant effects, which can protect cells from oxidative damage caused by hypoxia.

    Studies: Clinical studies have shown that Ginkgo biloba can reduce symptoms of AMS, such as headache and dizziness, by improving microcirculation and reducing oxidative stress.

    Roseroot (Rhodiola rosea)

    Rhodiola: Mental Health Benefits, Side Effects, and More
    If there are no side effects it’s probably not medicinal
    Mechanism: Similar to Rhodiola algida, Rhodiola rosea contains adaptogenic compounds like rosavin and salidroside, which help the body adapt to stress and improve physical performance. It also has antioxidant properties that protect against hypoxia-induced damage.

    Studies: Studies have demonstrated that Rhodiola rosea can enhance endurance, reduce fatigue, and improve the body's resistance to hypoxia, making it effective in preventing and reducing symptoms of AMS.

    Coca (Erythroxylum coca)

    Mechanism: Coca leaves contain alkaloids such as cocaine (so good luck sourcing these, only included here in the interests of being comprehensive, although millions in the Andes regular chew them without adverse effects), which can stimulate the central nervous system, increase oxygen intake, and improve overall physical performance. These effects can help counteract the symptoms of AMS.

    Studies: Indigenous populations in the Andes have used coca leaves for centuries to prevent and treat AMS. Scientific studies support its effectiveness in reducing symptoms of AMS, such as headache, nausea, and fatigue, by enhancing oxygen utilization and reducing oxidative stress.

    These herbs work through a combination of improving oxygen delivery, enhancing physical performance, reducing oxidative stress, and promoting acclimatization to high altitudes, thereby helping to prevent and mitigate the symptoms of acute mountain sickness.


    Along the same lines methylene blue (may need to avoid with SSRIs, severe kidney disease, G6PD deficiency) may attenuate jet lag and is used by biohackers and Long COVID/Vax injury sufferers nowadays because it increases mitochondrial oxygen production (other of the natural acclimatizing adjustments the body eventually makes to prolonged stays at altitude) without the addition of more oxygen. Basically it improves your ability to create energy and that’s really what we need oxygen for in the first place.

    There are other ways to improve mitochondrial energy production, most importantly for this purpose via plenty of direct sunlight before the flight. One way this works is that the key to mitochondrial energy production is proton tunneling, which is required for functioning of the ATPase enzyme in the inner mitochondrial membrane that produces ATP, the chemical energy currency of cells. Proton tunneling is a quantum effect that depends on the existence of coherent quantum domains in water as well as 4th phase structured water.

    Coherent domains are masses of water molecules vibrating at the same frequency, and structured water is a gel like water that forms next to liphophilic (water loving) surfaces in cells and leads to charge separation with one area of water having a negative charge next to the surface and another area having a positive charge. Both of these effects in water are increased by exposure to natural sunlight and the earth’s natural electromagnetic fields, e.g. the Schumann resonances - both of which are missing in flight.

    So another cause of jet lag on the flight is likely missing sun and natural EMFs, while being exposed instead to blue spectrum light and non-native electromagnetic fields instead (as well as increased exposure to cosmic radiation?). It’s usually impossible to get into natural sunlight for the duration of your trip, unless you have longer layovers (sunlight that filters through clear window glass is deficient in balancing UV-A, UV-B and infrared wavelengths that help to counteract the stressful nature of visible blue light).

    The best way to mitigate this may be to have a good tan (melanin in the skin can absorb any wavelength of radiation) and plenty of exposure to sun and natural outdoor electromagnetic fields in the days and weeks leading up to the flight, and after arrival, so as to have a strong reserve of coherent, structured biological water (some people also advocate structuring your drinking water by exposing it to light and spinning it in a vortex prior to consumption) and then replenish it after the flight.

    There is also an herbal cream we’ve found to be helpful for mitigating the effects of EMF on children and others who are particularly sensitive to it that could be used in this situation.

    EMF Mitigating Cream:

    10 parts Castor oil

    6 parts Hemp seed oil

    1 part bee propolis

    1 part neem oil

    1 part rosemary extract

    1 part coriander extract

    I was personally surprised to discover that there was data on EMF protective effects of Rosemary (eg here and here) and bee propolis (eg here). There are energetic reasons to include the other ingredients, but I’m not aware of studies having been done on them. If anyone has EMF sensitivity they should try this cream all over the body and report back any effects. It’s also important to note that many people with chronic diseaes (and jet lag) likely have EMF sensitivity they just aren’t aware of it. See Robert O Becker’s books and The Invisible Rainbow if you remain unconvinced of the thoroughly documented negative biological effects of most man-made non-ionizing radiation.

    Finally dehydration (airplane air is very dry), alcohol, caffeine, stress and advanced age can all play a role in triggering and prolonging jet lag, though older age is probably mostly a marker for more time spent living sub-optimaly, destroying organ reserve and resilience (both of which can be reversed).

    Usually when I take a long flight east my schedule will lag the final time zone I end up in by a few hours. So it’s not like my body thinks its all the way back home, it seems to think its a few time zones over. For example I’ll usually get tired in the afternoon say 3-4 pm and crash, and then wake up at 1-3 am unable to sleep any more. In terms of my origin time zone that translates to falling asleep at 8am and waking at 6pm (to be clear I don’t sleep all day at home, but have a normal schedule). So it would seem that my body thinks I’m a few time zones West of where I actually am.

    On my last 9-time-zone trip halfway around the globe I lost a lot of sleep for a couple days during the flights since I find it hard to sleep sitting up, but had great success preventing significant jet lag on arrival with a few simple interventions.

    I only ate during daytime wherever I was in my travels, and once I arrived I made sure to eat a good breakfast early every morning and didn’t consume anything at the destination after sunset - including food, information, light (i.e. no room lights or screens). I wore a pair of wraparound blue blocker sunglasses throughout the trip to block excess blue light (the darker the better, since light intensity is also important, especially at night). I made sure to get morning and afternoon sun both for 1-2 hours each at the destination.


    I arrived at my destination at 2am and the first day got my morning sun and then fell asleep for a couple hours until the afternoon, then got some more sun, and then slept normally that night until the next morning, which was a first for me after such a long trip and really surprising. The next day I got morning sun, afternoon sun and then took a nap again for a couple hours in the afternoon and again slept normally through the night.

    I was constipated on the flight, but it was less severe than usual, resolving within 24 hours once I landed.

    So basically I had some sleep to catch up on since I slept very poorly on the planes and missed a lot of sleep during the prolonged travel (there were two long layovers), but other than that I had very minimal jet lag without nighttime insomnia or excessive daytime fatigue the first couple days.

    After that I found that I could sleep longer in the afternoon if I let myself, but it wasn’t the usual overpowering, siren-song type of jet lag sleep I’m accustomed to. It was optional. Maybe next time I’ll try changing it up some more with some herbs and/or the EMF skin cream.


    Recent research by Huang et al also confirms that the best cure for jet lag is a big breakfast in the early morning at the destination and plenty of morning sunlight. These two signals help to synchronize central and distal body clocks to the new time zone and eliminate jet lag fast.

    They are also probably the two most important signals to help cure a normal case of insomnia.

    By the way, many people who are trying to fix chronic illness nowadays will try intermittent fasting, and it’s easiest to implement that by skipping breakfast, but this is the worst way to do it because it sends your body the wrong signals.

    LATELIFE MUSINGS...: EAT LIKE A KING
    The old wisdom that taught us to breakfast breakfast like a King and dinner like a pauper is correct, but I would go further and say skip dinner (perhaps that’s what the saying actually means anyway). Most people throughout human history counted themselves lucky to eat twice a day, let alone thrice.

    You often hear that breakfast was invented by cereal companies, but it was just coopted by them. A healthy breakfast for most people probably looks more like steak and eggs (and some healthy carbs) than an all-out refined sugar bomb and sets you up calorically and hormonally for an active day.

    Steak and Eggs Skillet with Chimichurri and Sweet Potatoes
    The Inputs Dictate the Output, i.e. Garbage In Garbage Out, illustrated via Light, Quantum Coherence, Structured Water, Cold, Seasonal Variations, Deuterium, etc

    Garbage in garbage out refers to the computer science truism that poor quality input, for example when trying to model the likelihood of some outcome, will produce poor quality output, i.e. you’ll probably get the answer wrong.

    The alternative is Quality in Quality Out or QIQO.

    The same aphorism applies to jet lag. If you provide the right inputs at the right times you won’t have jet lag. Jet lag is really a function of decreased resilience due to suboptimal environmental inputs.

    This is the essential truth about all chronic disease that we ignore to our own detriment because it’s easy to just go with the flow. Unfortunately that flow is like a riptide that will carry you out to sea and to your early demise unless you act fast and swim out of it, parallel to the shore. The good news is that once you make the effort and build new habits, they stick with you and it’s a lot easier to continue.

    So the basic prevention and cure for jet lag and insomnia is the same basic prevention and cure for any chronic health dysfunction in the modern world, because our dysfunctions are fundamentally caused by living out of sync with our environments, both external and internal (e.g. physiologically harmful thoughts, beliefs, emotions).

    Our external environments are tailor made for us, or we’re tailor made for them, depending on your perspective and Nature never makes mistakes, though we often misinterpret her perfection.

    On the other hand you could take the lesson that supplemental oxygen cures jet lag and extend that to chronic disease. Supplemental oxygen may also help allay the symptoms of chronic diseases, and be even more effective when taken inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. Both in or out of the chamber it works the same way by increasing stem cell production.

    But the easy way out will always come back to bite you in the end. There isn’t really an easy way. It’s an illusion. You can use various means to take the edge off, but ultimately you have to address root causes, because if you don’t the underlying problem will only worsen and eventually overcome the simple fix you found. The easy way is a temporary bandaid.

    Whereas going down a mountain to an altitude you’re more accustomed to makes sense physiologically speaking, using a hyperbaric chamber is the equivalent of going underwater where the partial pressure of oxygen is much higher. Even if you plan to live in a submarine it’s certainly not a natural signal to give your body. We aren’t designed for such high pressures.

    Health is a function of irreducibly complex inputs - i.e. you can’t mimic the sun by taking vitamin D, or even with a sunlamp. Understanding more about the ways this works for external inputs will help us respect Nature and submit to her dictates. In order to do that we’ll consider some fascinating, but little known facts about human biology and the central roles that light and water play in it.

    We already discussed the effect of light on quantum coherence and structuring of water and how that improves the energy production of mitochondria.

    EZ Water: The Fourth Phase Of Water (Part 3) - Live Vitae
    Structured water due to it’s thicker gel like consistency excludes particulate matter and cells, thereby protecting the walls of the blood vessels from damage and inflammation.
    The structuring of water is also the reason blood flows, and blood is what delivers oxygen and nutrients.

    When you have a hydrophilic (water attracting, not repelling) tube, like an artery or vein and you place it in a bucket of water, the water structures itself by charge separating as described above and starts flowing through the tube spontaneously, and so does blood, which is primarily made up of water. Blood circulation in an embryo begins even before the heart forms and starts pumping, i.e. it is not the pumping that moves blood, rather the heart acts more like a conductor, synchronizing the organs of the body (more on this in an upcoming post on the heart).

    Now, both quantum coherent domains and structured water form more easily in cold temperatures, which means you need less light energy to produce them. This means that near the equator where it’s warm all year round you need more light energy absorbed by your body water, and conveniently there is more light available during the year with 12 hour days throughout. Whereas up north you need less light in the winters when it is cold and the days are much shorter. In both of these situations our physiology if it is in sync with the natural environment will get just what it needs.

    Seasonal variations in light also affect weight gain because when temperatures are warmer and days are longer and food is plentiful, the body gets the message that it’s time to store up fat for the coming winter (remember blue light triggers cortisol, appetite, hyperglycemia and elevated insulin). When winter comes the days are short and food is naturally scarcer, and in the cold our bodies are stimulated to produce more heat, and use stored energy to do so.

    The Endless Summer (Remastered) - Official Trailer
    If you want an endless summer, head south.
    However nowadays winter never comes in industrialized societies, even up north, at least the signals that indicate it’s winter never arrive: we don’t change what we eat in the winter, because we don’t eat seasonally, and we don’t change our light environment either, because we spend all day and night indoors in temperature controlled environments with the lights on until all hours - our circadian biology gets the message that it’s always summer, the days are always long, the food always plentiful (you can eat more because you keep the lights on so long) and it’s never too cold.

    Our mitochondria naturally deplete water of deuterium, which is a heavy isotope of hydrogen. Water in the south has higher deuterium content while water up north is already deuterium depleted so our mitochondria may work more efficiently when exposed to it, with less need of the red and NIR spectrums to help boost their functioning, if we are living within a natural environment and drinking the local water up north (while being exposed to the natural temperature variations and seasonal foodstuffs).


    Not much is known about bioenergetics, since there is insufficient funding, but it has been shown that a weak DC electrical current flows in the Qi energy pathways mapped out by the Ancient Chinese 1000s of years ago (it was shown that grounding primarily enters free electrons into the meridians of the Spleen, Stomach, Liver, Gall Bladder, Kidneys, and Urinary Bladder). The energy flows because we are made up of biological semiconductors. Semiconductors hold electrons, and when they are excited by enough outside energy those electrons start to flow as electricity.

    Our biological semiconductors like collagen need to be charged with electrons from food and grounding (more grounding means you need less food), and “turned on” by incident light energy from the sun. Just like mitochondria they work better in the cold, and so need less energy from sunlight in northern winters, when there is naturally less sun available.

    The concentrated blue light we’re exposed to is meant to be stimulatory - it’s the component of natural sunlight that triggers wakefulness, and stimulates the sympathetic nervous system to release catecholamines like dopamine and norepinephrine, which raise alertness, focus, motivation, BP and HR (which is why blue light dominant computer and smartphone screens are addictive by their very nature, in addition to the addictive nature of much of the software - but even if you need to use the apps, at least you can turn your screens red like I do and you may notice less of a pull to overuse them, and anyway your eyes and brain will benefit from it).


    Since blue light triggers dopamine, blue light dominant computer and smartphone screens are addictive by their very nature, in addition to the addictiveness programmed into the software - but even if you need to use the apps, at least you can turn your screens red like I do and you may notice less of a pull to overuse them, and either way your eyes and brain will benefit from it, since blue light without balancing infrared and UV-A kills retinal cells.
    The other wavelengths of natural sunlight have a balancing effect physiologically: UV-A stimulates nitric oxide which helps relax us and elevate our mood by increasing the levels of beta endorphins, as well as lowering blood pressure. It also affects hormonal and neurotransmitter levels. Red and near infrared wavelengths have healing and anti-inflammatory effects commonly leveraged by photo-biomodulation devices. Blue light is known to be toxic to cells in the eye, but the UV-A, red and NIR wavelengths protect against that by stimulating nitric oxide production, increasing antioxidants, suppressing inflammation and increasing mitochondrial energy production and mitochondrial numbers.

    Excess blue light, unmitigated by the other balancing wavelengths, raises cortisol levels, which lead to elevated blood sugar and insulin. When this becomes chronic it leads to decreased production of serotonin and melatonin, insulin resistance and leptin resistance (leptin is a natural appetite suppressant). The other wavelengths in light help to reduce stress, cortisol, blood sugar and insulin levels.

    However the answer is not to simply outfit all our homes with full spectrum bulbs, or even fancy red lights at night like they hang on the roads near certain beaches to prevent circadian disruption in spawning turtles. The photoperiod, i.e. the length of the day is also important (if you really can’t avoid night time lights then dim red bulbs are the least suppressive of melatonin production, try to keep the lux between 50-100 for the best effects). We need to balance light with dark every day and throughout the year depending on where we are on the earth.

    The natural spectrum of sunlight changes throughout the day. UV-A, red and NIR are most prevalent in the early morning and late afternoon, while UV-B, which stimulates vitamin D production is most prevalent in midday.

    comparing natural light and artificial light - Sunlight Inside
    UV-B is important for stimulating vitamin D production which can increase insulin secretion, inhibit the renin-angiotensin system of the kidney to help lower blood pressure, influence the production of sex hormones estrogen and testosterone, modulate the immune system, and directly affects the expression of over 900 genes.

    UV-B can damage skin, but the effect is mitigated by preconditioning your skin with the protective wavelengths in morning sunlight, and further decreased by getting healing late afternoon sun. These daily variations in light characteristics highlight the importance of getting regular sun exposure throughout the day, whether direct or indirect from reflected light even while in the shade outdoors.

    Knock-on Effects

    Serotonin production is stimulated by UV-A light in the morning, and as mentioned above, it is the precursor to melatonin, production of which is stimulated by darkness. If we don’t get enough light we don’t make enough serotonin, which means we won’t make as much melatonin later on even if we don’t turn on the lights.

    And simply taking melatonin on a chronic basis to fix the sleep problem will lead to other problems as mentioned briefly earlier, most obviously too much serotonin (also seen with SSRI use) since it’s no longer being converted to melatonin.

    Acute symptoms of higher serotonin include restlessness, agitation, confusion, hallucinations, tachycardia and arrhythmias, high blood pressure. tremors, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. Chronically elevated serotonin will lead to increased cortisol production, prolactin excess, and altered levels of thyroid hormone, growth hormone, sex hormones, oxytocin, and insulin.

    Let’s trace out the further implications of just the first of those effects of higher serotonin: chronically elevated cortisol will lead to weight gain, insulin resistance, hypertension, heart disease, low immune function, muscle weakness, osteoporosis, mood disorders, cognitive impairment, reproductive hormone imbalances, skin and hair problems, and digestive upset. It does this by affecting the levels of insulin, thyroid hormones, sex hormones, growth hormone, prolactin, adrenaline, leptin and ghrelin.

    And we could keep going down each of these pathways documenting how each disruption spreads outward in every widening concentric circles over time from any unnatural tweak that is made to our physiology.

    This is why we can only effectively speak to our bodies using the natural signals they’ve been designed to understand.

    Health is a function of an irreducibly complex system of environmental inputs. You can never put an irreducibly complex environment in a simple pill.

    Hormonal Rhythms

    All our hormones are also on circadian rhythms.

    So if you get too much light throughout the year (by turning the lights on at sunset) you’re going to burn out your thyroid, adrenals, ovaries/testes, and everything else that is stimulated by light. Just like overeating refined carbs may help precipitate pancreatic exhaustion and diabetes, consuming too much light and the wrong kind of light (especially blue without the rest) will necessarily lead to exhaustion of all the hormonal systems that help you function during the day light hours (and disrupt nighttime-peaking hormones like melatonin, growth hormone, prolactin, and leptin). This will lead to the typical diseases we see all the time in the modern world: insulin resistance and diabetes (via stress, cortisol and glucose), cancer (via the last), hypothyroidism, heart disease (via stress and sympathetic overactivity), “adrenal fatigue,” chronic fatigue syndrome, burnout, autoimmune diseases (disrupted POMC), hypertension, etc.

    Conclusion

    So if you’re struggling with jet lag or insomnia, try eating early and getting your morning sun (and if its a bad case then consider some of the other things above) and let me know what happens.

    And if you’re struggling with chronic disease, try aligning yourself with your natural environment in order to optimize your hormonal cycles and other bodily functions that are designed for the natural environment.

    Finally to close the loop on the title re: Sherpas.

    Why don’t they get jet lag?

    Because they only fly up and down Mt Everest.

    Ha ha.

    Seriously though, there is no research I could find on jet lag differentials by population or background, but it would make sense that if jet lag is in part due to a form of high altitude sickness and is more likely in those living out of sync with their natural environments, then a Sherpa would be less prone to it since they are acclimated to high altitudes and live in touch with their natural surroundings.

    Let me know in the comments what you think!

    Why Sherpas & Billionaires Don't Get Jet Lag Can Fix Chronic Disease Synchronizing biological clocks, GIGO vs QIQO, implications for modern environmental mismatches and healing chronic disease. Dr. Syed Haider There is no sleep as delicious as jet-lagged sleep. But it’s also inconvenient, especially if you need to get back to work, or make the most of precious vacation time. Like many living in modern industrialized societies today I have a lot of experience with globe trotting jet lag. I always get constipated for a few days (not the first thing you think of with jet lag, but it happens), and of course suffer through the usual daytime fatigue lulling me to sleep in the afternoon only to wake up again at 2 - 4am. Jet lag can also cause a lot of other symptoms in susceptible people: Digestive upset including the aforementioned constipation, but also nausea, bloating, and changes in appetite Headaches, trouble concentrating, impaired judgment and decision making, memory lapses. Irritability, apathy, anxiety, and depression. Recovery times vary person to person, but can take as long as a day for each time zone crossed, especially if you don’t make much effort to resist the enticing daytime sleep. The advice I’ve gotten over the years to minimize jet lag from hard charging, Type-A acquaintances who can’t suffer the downtime: once travel begins, eat on the destination schedule (so decline all the weirdly timed airline food) spend a couple hours in the noon-time sun for a couple days on arrival get grounded at the destination take melatonin Thank you for reading Dr. Syed Haider. This post is public so feel free to share it. Share Numbers 1 and 2 help to get your body on the correct circadian rhythm, though I’ve since learned early morning sun is even more important than afternoon sun for this purpose. Grounding is a source of free electrons that are required to run your body's DC bio-electrical currents, and they also have powerful antioxidant effects. Free electrons can bypass inflammatory tissue barriers that can keep out chemical antioxidants. Melatonin is thought of as the sleep hormone, though it has many other effects on our biology including immune regulation, direct and indirect antioxidant effects, hormonal regulation, blood pressure lowering, and anti-cancer properties. The melatonin released by the pineal gland at night puts us to sleep, but 95% of the melatonin in our bodies resides within our mitochondria which are the energy powerhouses within every cell. Melatonin is only released by the pineal gland in response to darkness. It’s commonly used by shift workers, and globetrotters alike to re-set their circadian rhythms quickly. There are documented side effects of melatonin use including headaches, nausea, dizziness and agitation, which suggest that it may not be as benign as many people make it out to be. Generally speaking it’s best not to try to hack biology by exogenous administration of endogenously created substances: if you make it, don’t take it, because there may be unpredictable butterfly effects that are impossible to trace back. An apt metaphor for this kind of biohacking is attempting to code a computer in the base machine language of 1s and 0s which is basically impossible for humans to understand. Where the metaphor breaks down is that at least we know how to perfectly map human interpretable languages to machine language (using compilers), but we don’t know all the rules of our own biochemistry, there are missing pieces and the interrelationships in living systems are too unpredictable and complex to model in each patient. It is probable impossible to ever sort it out because humans are not simple automatons. Everything we think, feel and believe affects our biology and biochemistry. How can you model all of that without a direct interface into a person’s mind and heart? Organization of Computer Systems: ISA, Machine Language, Number Systems All of melatonin’s effects sound great in theory, but you can have too much of a good thing, especially when that thing is part of an intricate network of feedback loops, where exogenous administration artificially affects many other things that suddenly react to greater than expected melatonin levels at the “wrong” time according to the body’s own biological clocks. Exogenous melatonin can lower cortisol (pro-inflammatory), suppress fertility, raise growth hormone, cause relative insulin resistance and relative hypothyroid effects. Melatonin is the body’s strongest antioxidant, but we know that antioxidants in excess can exhibit pro-oxidant effects. This might be helpful for cancer since that can kill cancer cells, but it might be harmful as well to regular cells and their mitochondria. Excess melatonin will also disrupt serotonin metabolism because Serotonin is the precursor used to make melatonin. If the body gets melatonin from outside then there will be excess serotonin, which wasn’t needed to make melatonin. This is why melatonin is relatively contraindicated in those taking SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) which also increase serotonin levels. Elevated levels of serotonin can cause insomnia, anxiety, irritability and gut upset among other things, perhaps helping explain why chronic melatonin use so often doesn’t help patients with refractory insomnia (more on chronic effects of melatonin use towards the end). Even short term some of these might help explain negative side effects experienced by some when taking melatonin, and there might be mid term effects that aren’t connected back to the melatonin administration - hypothetically speaking, if you come down with something 2 weeks after taking melatonin how likely are you to make the connection? I acknowledge that many people will use melatonin anyway (I used it too in the past), it just goes against my c current understanding of the principles of health. But no worries, theres much more interesting stuff below: what private jets can teach us about jet lag and how to prevent it! Not All Jets Lag A little known and almost universally inaccessible approach to preventing jet lag is worth examining anyway because of what it might teach us about jet lag and what we can do about it (an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure). I learned from a famous private jet salesman on Youtube (to be clear I wasn’t in the market for a private jet) that flying at lower altitudes with better cabin pressure prevents jet lag because oxygen tension remains higher throughout the flight - if this personal observation is true, it would explain why super-billionaires don’t all fly in Airbus size jumbo jets, but tend to prefer the Gulfstream, which has the highest cabin pressure of any private jet. The Gulfstream G600 can maintain an effective cabin “altitude” of 3,800 feet even at a cruising altitude of 45,000 feet. Steve Varsano : The Jet Business - Ultimate Jet | The Voice of Business Aviation since 2008 Jet salesman Steve Varsano’s jet-interior-shaped office space On the other hand commercial airlines usually maintain a cabin pressure equivalent to an altitude of 6,000 to 8,000 feet. So flying in a Gulfstream is easier than staying in Denver Colorado (elevation 5000 ft), while flying commercial is the equivalent of rapidly ascending a tall mountain within a matter of minutes, a feat that can lead to high altitude sickness (HAS) in 25% of those who sleep above 8000 feet, and can cause symptoms in more sensitive people at much lower elevations. So maybe jet lag is a subset of mild high altitude sickness (i.e. oxygen/energy deprivation) that makes it harder to adjust to a new time zone. That would suggest that treatments for high altitude sickness, or mimicking the physiological changes that occur when someone acclimates to higher altitudes over time might help with jet lag (and be much more accessible than flying private). Acclimatization to high altitudes involves several physiological changes that help the body cope with lower oxygen levels. Key mechanisms include: Increased Ventilation: Breathing rate and depth increase to intake more oxygen. Red Blood Cell Production: The body produces more red blood cells to enhance oxygen transport. Hemoglobin Affinity: Hemoglobin’s affinity for oxygen adjusts to release oxygen more efficiently to tissues. Capillary Density: Capillaries may increase in number, improving oxygen delivery to tissues. Mitochondrial Efficiency: Cellular adaptations enhance energy production efficiency under low oxygen conditions. Thank you for reading Dr. Syed Haider. This post is public so feel free to share it. Share The top of the list of treatments for high altitude sickness is obviously just to go back down to a lower altitude and/or get more oxygen (mimicking number 1 - 4 above). Equally obviously in an airplane you’re not going to be able to go back down for the duration, but you could super-oxygenate yourself using a portable oxygen concentrator (available via prescription. details on flying with one here). It’s not safe to use 100% oxygen for prolonged periods, but you could titrate the device to deliver just enough oxygen to counteract the effects of the lower oxygen tension on flights that cruise at effective altitudes of 6-8000 feet. Traveling with a Portable Oxygen Concentrator (Tips) | 2024 Running the calculations on a typical flight with cabin pressure set to the equivalent of 6000 feet above sea level we find that you only need about half a liter per minute from the oxygen concentrator in the average person to raise inspired oxygen concentration enough to counteract the effects of altitude and give you the same amount of oxygen delivery you would expect at sea level. A more convenient and cheaper alternative to lugging around a portable oxygen concentrator is prescription acetazolamide (diamox) carried by many hikers who’ve had experience with altitude sickness before. Acetazolamide works primarily by removing bicarbonate (baking soda is sodium bicarbonate) from your bloodstream into your urine and therefore causing metabolic acidosis in your body, which stimulates your brain to increase your breathing rate, which then increases your blood oxygen levels. There is another little known possibility for the treatment and prevention of acute mountain sickness which is the simple, cheap and readily available chemical ammonium chloride. Its chemical decomposition in the bloodstream leads to the creation of hydrogen ions and CO2. Hydrogen ions bind and neutralize bicarb lower the pH by a different avenue than diamox, but having the same effect to stimulate respiration. Increased CO2 levels will also stimulate increased respiration. So both would tend to raise oxygen levels as a result. Apparently useful for a number of indications including kidney stones, digestive trouble, preventing metabolic diseases and to give goats a beautiful sheen on their coat for shows. There was one small study published in 1937 where a dozen volunteers took 5 grams of ammonium chloride three times a day with meals (much higher than normal dosing ranges for its one remaining medical indication, severe metabolic alkalosis) while ascending to altitude. Unfortunately the results were weirdly completely the opposite of what you might expect, which raises the possibility that pharmaceutical industry bias creot in as it usually does when any simple non-prescription therapy threatens the status quo. That paper also referenced a few other preliminary research findings that had seemed promising at 1/10th the dose. Given the mechanisms at play it would be interesting if someone revisited this research. Traditional herbal remedies for high altitude sickness might be helpful as well, and I suspect gentler and safer than acetazolamide (though none that we know of work exactly the same way it does): Sea Buckthorn ("Shan-Ji" in TCM) Mechanism: Sea buckthorn is rich in antioxidants, vitamins (especially vitamin C), and fatty acids, which can enhance oxygen utilization and reduce oxidative stress at high altitudes. Studies: Research has shown that sea buckthorn can improve high-altitude polycythemia (an increase in red blood cells due to low oxygen levels), which helps in better oxygen transport and utilization in the body. Rhodiola algida ("Hong Jing Tian" in TCM) Mechanism: Rhodiola algida contains active compounds like salidroside and rosavin, which are known to enhance physical performance, reduce fatigue, and increase resistance to stress. These properties can be beneficial in preventing AMS by improving the body's ability to cope with hypoxia (low oxygen levels). Studies: It is traditionally used by Tibetan people to prevent AMS. Experimental studies suggest that Rhodiola spp. can improve acclimatization and reduce symptoms of AMS by enhancing oxygen efficiency and reducing oxidative stress. Zuo-Mu-A decoction (no English name found) Mechanism: This traditional Tibetan medicine contains various herbs that are believed to work synergistically to enhance acclimatization to high altitudes. The exact mechanism is not fully understood, but it is thought to improve blood oxygenation and reduce oxidative stress. Studies: Experimental studies in rats have demonstrated its efficacy in preventing high-altitude polycythemia, indicating a potential benefit in improving oxygen delivery and reducing AMS symptoms. Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) Mechanism: Ginkgo biloba is known for its vasodilatory properties, which can improve blood flow and oxygen delivery to tissues. It also has strong antioxidant effects, which can protect cells from oxidative damage caused by hypoxia. Studies: Clinical studies have shown that Ginkgo biloba can reduce symptoms of AMS, such as headache and dizziness, by improving microcirculation and reducing oxidative stress. Roseroot (Rhodiola rosea) Rhodiola: Mental Health Benefits, Side Effects, and More If there are no side effects it’s probably not medicinal Mechanism: Similar to Rhodiola algida, Rhodiola rosea contains adaptogenic compounds like rosavin and salidroside, which help the body adapt to stress and improve physical performance. It also has antioxidant properties that protect against hypoxia-induced damage. Studies: Studies have demonstrated that Rhodiola rosea can enhance endurance, reduce fatigue, and improve the body's resistance to hypoxia, making it effective in preventing and reducing symptoms of AMS. Coca (Erythroxylum coca) Mechanism: Coca leaves contain alkaloids such as cocaine (so good luck sourcing these, only included here in the interests of being comprehensive, although millions in the Andes regular chew them without adverse effects), which can stimulate the central nervous system, increase oxygen intake, and improve overall physical performance. These effects can help counteract the symptoms of AMS. Studies: Indigenous populations in the Andes have used coca leaves for centuries to prevent and treat AMS. Scientific studies support its effectiveness in reducing symptoms of AMS, such as headache, nausea, and fatigue, by enhancing oxygen utilization and reducing oxidative stress. These herbs work through a combination of improving oxygen delivery, enhancing physical performance, reducing oxidative stress, and promoting acclimatization to high altitudes, thereby helping to prevent and mitigate the symptoms of acute mountain sickness. Along the same lines methylene blue (may need to avoid with SSRIs, severe kidney disease, G6PD deficiency) may attenuate jet lag and is used by biohackers and Long COVID/Vax injury sufferers nowadays because it increases mitochondrial oxygen production (other of the natural acclimatizing adjustments the body eventually makes to prolonged stays at altitude) without the addition of more oxygen. Basically it improves your ability to create energy and that’s really what we need oxygen for in the first place. Thank you for reading Dr. Syed Haider. This post is public so feel free to share it. Share There are other ways to improve mitochondrial energy production, most importantly for this purpose via plenty of direct sunlight before the flight. One way this works is that the key to mitochondrial energy production is proton tunneling, which is required for functioning of the ATPase enzyme in the inner mitochondrial membrane that produces ATP, the chemical energy currency of cells. Proton tunneling is a quantum effect that depends on the existence of coherent quantum domains in water as well as 4th phase structured water. Coherent domains are masses of water molecules vibrating at the same frequency, and structured water is a gel like water that forms next to liphophilic (water loving) surfaces in cells and leads to charge separation with one area of water having a negative charge next to the surface and another area having a positive charge. Both of these effects in water are increased by exposure to natural sunlight and the earth’s natural electromagnetic fields, e.g. the Schumann resonances - both of which are missing in flight. So another cause of jet lag on the flight is likely missing sun and natural EMFs, while being exposed instead to blue spectrum light and non-native electromagnetic fields instead (as well as increased exposure to cosmic radiation?). It’s usually impossible to get into natural sunlight for the duration of your trip, unless you have longer layovers (sunlight that filters through clear window glass is deficient in balancing UV-A, UV-B and infrared wavelengths that help to counteract the stressful nature of visible blue light). The best way to mitigate this may be to have a good tan (melanin in the skin can absorb any wavelength of radiation) and plenty of exposure to sun and natural outdoor electromagnetic fields in the days and weeks leading up to the flight, and after arrival, so as to have a strong reserve of coherent, structured biological water (some people also advocate structuring your drinking water by exposing it to light and spinning it in a vortex prior to consumption) and then replenish it after the flight. There is also an herbal cream we’ve found to be helpful for mitigating the effects of EMF on children and others who are particularly sensitive to it that could be used in this situation. EMF Mitigating Cream: 10 parts Castor oil 6 parts Hemp seed oil 1 part bee propolis 1 part neem oil 1 part rosemary extract 1 part coriander extract I was personally surprised to discover that there was data on EMF protective effects of Rosemary (eg here and here) and bee propolis (eg here). There are energetic reasons to include the other ingredients, but I’m not aware of studies having been done on them. If anyone has EMF sensitivity they should try this cream all over the body and report back any effects. It’s also important to note that many people with chronic diseaes (and jet lag) likely have EMF sensitivity they just aren’t aware of it. See Robert O Becker’s books and The Invisible Rainbow if you remain unconvinced of the thoroughly documented negative biological effects of most man-made non-ionizing radiation. Finally dehydration (airplane air is very dry), alcohol, caffeine, stress and advanced age can all play a role in triggering and prolonging jet lag, though older age is probably mostly a marker for more time spent living sub-optimaly, destroying organ reserve and resilience (both of which can be reversed). Usually when I take a long flight east my schedule will lag the final time zone I end up in by a few hours. So it’s not like my body thinks its all the way back home, it seems to think its a few time zones over. For example I’ll usually get tired in the afternoon say 3-4 pm and crash, and then wake up at 1-3 am unable to sleep any more. In terms of my origin time zone that translates to falling asleep at 8am and waking at 6pm (to be clear I don’t sleep all day at home, but have a normal schedule). So it would seem that my body thinks I’m a few time zones West of where I actually am. On my last 9-time-zone trip halfway around the globe I lost a lot of sleep for a couple days during the flights since I find it hard to sleep sitting up, but had great success preventing significant jet lag on arrival with a few simple interventions. I only ate during daytime wherever I was in my travels, and once I arrived I made sure to eat a good breakfast early every morning and didn’t consume anything at the destination after sunset - including food, information, light (i.e. no room lights or screens). I wore a pair of wraparound blue blocker sunglasses throughout the trip to block excess blue light (the darker the better, since light intensity is also important, especially at night). I made sure to get morning and afternoon sun both for 1-2 hours each at the destination. I arrived at my destination at 2am and the first day got my morning sun and then fell asleep for a couple hours until the afternoon, then got some more sun, and then slept normally that night until the next morning, which was a first for me after such a long trip and really surprising. The next day I got morning sun, afternoon sun and then took a nap again for a couple hours in the afternoon and again slept normally through the night. I was constipated on the flight, but it was less severe than usual, resolving within 24 hours once I landed. So basically I had some sleep to catch up on since I slept very poorly on the planes and missed a lot of sleep during the prolonged travel (there were two long layovers), but other than that I had very minimal jet lag without nighttime insomnia or excessive daytime fatigue the first couple days. After that I found that I could sleep longer in the afternoon if I let myself, but it wasn’t the usual overpowering, siren-song type of jet lag sleep I’m accustomed to. It was optional. Maybe next time I’ll try changing it up some more with some herbs and/or the EMF skin cream. Recent research by Huang et al also confirms that the best cure for jet lag is a big breakfast in the early morning at the destination and plenty of morning sunlight. These two signals help to synchronize central and distal body clocks to the new time zone and eliminate jet lag fast. They are also probably the two most important signals to help cure a normal case of insomnia. By the way, many people who are trying to fix chronic illness nowadays will try intermittent fasting, and it’s easiest to implement that by skipping breakfast, but this is the worst way to do it because it sends your body the wrong signals. LATELIFE MUSINGS...: EAT LIKE A KING The old wisdom that taught us to breakfast breakfast like a King and dinner like a pauper is correct, but I would go further and say skip dinner (perhaps that’s what the saying actually means anyway). Most people throughout human history counted themselves lucky to eat twice a day, let alone thrice. You often hear that breakfast was invented by cereal companies, but it was just coopted by them. A healthy breakfast for most people probably looks more like steak and eggs (and some healthy carbs) than an all-out refined sugar bomb and sets you up calorically and hormonally for an active day. Steak and Eggs Skillet with Chimichurri and Sweet Potatoes The Inputs Dictate the Output, i.e. Garbage In Garbage Out, illustrated via Light, Quantum Coherence, Structured Water, Cold, Seasonal Variations, Deuterium, etc Garbage in garbage out refers to the computer science truism that poor quality input, for example when trying to model the likelihood of some outcome, will produce poor quality output, i.e. you’ll probably get the answer wrong. The alternative is Quality in Quality Out or QIQO. The same aphorism applies to jet lag. If you provide the right inputs at the right times you won’t have jet lag. Jet lag is really a function of decreased resilience due to suboptimal environmental inputs. This is the essential truth about all chronic disease that we ignore to our own detriment because it’s easy to just go with the flow. Unfortunately that flow is like a riptide that will carry you out to sea and to your early demise unless you act fast and swim out of it, parallel to the shore. The good news is that once you make the effort and build new habits, they stick with you and it’s a lot easier to continue. So the basic prevention and cure for jet lag and insomnia is the same basic prevention and cure for any chronic health dysfunction in the modern world, because our dysfunctions are fundamentally caused by living out of sync with our environments, both external and internal (e.g. physiologically harmful thoughts, beliefs, emotions). Our external environments are tailor made for us, or we’re tailor made for them, depending on your perspective and Nature never makes mistakes, though we often misinterpret her perfection. On the other hand you could take the lesson that supplemental oxygen cures jet lag and extend that to chronic disease. Supplemental oxygen may also help allay the symptoms of chronic diseases, and be even more effective when taken inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. Both in or out of the chamber it works the same way by increasing stem cell production. But the easy way out will always come back to bite you in the end. There isn’t really an easy way. It’s an illusion. You can use various means to take the edge off, but ultimately you have to address root causes, because if you don’t the underlying problem will only worsen and eventually overcome the simple fix you found. The easy way is a temporary bandaid. Whereas going down a mountain to an altitude you’re more accustomed to makes sense physiologically speaking, using a hyperbaric chamber is the equivalent of going underwater where the partial pressure of oxygen is much higher. Even if you plan to live in a submarine it’s certainly not a natural signal to give your body. We aren’t designed for such high pressures. Health is a function of irreducibly complex inputs - i.e. you can’t mimic the sun by taking vitamin D, or even with a sunlamp. Understanding more about the ways this works for external inputs will help us respect Nature and submit to her dictates. In order to do that we’ll consider some fascinating, but little known facts about human biology and the central roles that light and water play in it. We already discussed the effect of light on quantum coherence and structuring of water and how that improves the energy production of mitochondria. EZ Water: The Fourth Phase Of Water (Part 3) - Live Vitae Structured water due to it’s thicker gel like consistency excludes particulate matter and cells, thereby protecting the walls of the blood vessels from damage and inflammation. The structuring of water is also the reason blood flows, and blood is what delivers oxygen and nutrients. When you have a hydrophilic (water attracting, not repelling) tube, like an artery or vein and you place it in a bucket of water, the water structures itself by charge separating as described above and starts flowing through the tube spontaneously, and so does blood, which is primarily made up of water. Blood circulation in an embryo begins even before the heart forms and starts pumping, i.e. it is not the pumping that moves blood, rather the heart acts more like a conductor, synchronizing the organs of the body (more on this in an upcoming post on the heart). Now, both quantum coherent domains and structured water form more easily in cold temperatures, which means you need less light energy to produce them. This means that near the equator where it’s warm all year round you need more light energy absorbed by your body water, and conveniently there is more light available during the year with 12 hour days throughout. Whereas up north you need less light in the winters when it is cold and the days are much shorter. In both of these situations our physiology if it is in sync with the natural environment will get just what it needs. Seasonal variations in light also affect weight gain because when temperatures are warmer and days are longer and food is plentiful, the body gets the message that it’s time to store up fat for the coming winter (remember blue light triggers cortisol, appetite, hyperglycemia and elevated insulin). When winter comes the days are short and food is naturally scarcer, and in the cold our bodies are stimulated to produce more heat, and use stored energy to do so. The Endless Summer (Remastered) - Official Trailer If you want an endless summer, head south. However nowadays winter never comes in industrialized societies, even up north, at least the signals that indicate it’s winter never arrive: we don’t change what we eat in the winter, because we don’t eat seasonally, and we don’t change our light environment either, because we spend all day and night indoors in temperature controlled environments with the lights on until all hours - our circadian biology gets the message that it’s always summer, the days are always long, the food always plentiful (you can eat more because you keep the lights on so long) and it’s never too cold. Our mitochondria naturally deplete water of deuterium, which is a heavy isotope of hydrogen. Water in the south has higher deuterium content while water up north is already deuterium depleted so our mitochondria may work more efficiently when exposed to it, with less need of the red and NIR spectrums to help boost their functioning, if we are living within a natural environment and drinking the local water up north (while being exposed to the natural temperature variations and seasonal foodstuffs). Not much is known about bioenergetics, since there is insufficient funding, but it has been shown that a weak DC electrical current flows in the Qi energy pathways mapped out by the Ancient Chinese 1000s of years ago (it was shown that grounding primarily enters free electrons into the meridians of the Spleen, Stomach, Liver, Gall Bladder, Kidneys, and Urinary Bladder). The energy flows because we are made up of biological semiconductors. Semiconductors hold electrons, and when they are excited by enough outside energy those electrons start to flow as electricity. Our biological semiconductors like collagen need to be charged with electrons from food and grounding (more grounding means you need less food), and “turned on” by incident light energy from the sun. Just like mitochondria they work better in the cold, and so need less energy from sunlight in northern winters, when there is naturally less sun available. https://robertobecker.net/research/bone-bioelectricity/ The concentrated blue light we’re exposed to is meant to be stimulatory - it’s the component of natural sunlight that triggers wakefulness, and stimulates the sympathetic nervous system to release catecholamines like dopamine and norepinephrine, which raise alertness, focus, motivation, BP and HR (which is why blue light dominant computer and smartphone screens are addictive by their very nature, in addition to the addictive nature of much of the software - but even if you need to use the apps, at least you can turn your screens red like I do and you may notice less of a pull to overuse them, and anyway your eyes and brain will benefit from it). Since blue light triggers dopamine, blue light dominant computer and smartphone screens are addictive by their very nature, in addition to the addictiveness programmed into the software - but even if you need to use the apps, at least you can turn your screens red like I do and you may notice less of a pull to overuse them, and either way your eyes and brain will benefit from it, since blue light without balancing infrared and UV-A kills retinal cells. The other wavelengths of natural sunlight have a balancing effect physiologically: UV-A stimulates nitric oxide which helps relax us and elevate our mood by increasing the levels of beta endorphins, as well as lowering blood pressure. It also affects hormonal and neurotransmitter levels. Red and near infrared wavelengths have healing and anti-inflammatory effects commonly leveraged by photo-biomodulation devices. Blue light is known to be toxic to cells in the eye, but the UV-A, red and NIR wavelengths protect against that by stimulating nitric oxide production, increasing antioxidants, suppressing inflammation and increasing mitochondrial energy production and mitochondrial numbers. Excess blue light, unmitigated by the other balancing wavelengths, raises cortisol levels, which lead to elevated blood sugar and insulin. When this becomes chronic it leads to decreased production of serotonin and melatonin, insulin resistance and leptin resistance (leptin is a natural appetite suppressant). The other wavelengths in light help to reduce stress, cortisol, blood sugar and insulin levels. Full Spectrum Light Bulb | SAD Lamp for Depression | BlockBlueLight However the answer is not to simply outfit all our homes with full spectrum bulbs, or even fancy red lights at night like they hang on the roads near certain beaches to prevent circadian disruption in spawning turtles. The photoperiod, i.e. the length of the day is also important (if you really can’t avoid night time lights then dim red bulbs are the least suppressive of melatonin production, try to keep the lux between 50-100 for the best effects). We need to balance light with dark every day and throughout the year depending on where we are on the earth. The natural spectrum of sunlight changes throughout the day. UV-A, red and NIR are most prevalent in the early morning and late afternoon, while UV-B, which stimulates vitamin D production is most prevalent in midday. comparing natural light and artificial light - Sunlight Inside UV-B is important for stimulating vitamin D production which can increase insulin secretion, inhibit the renin-angiotensin system of the kidney to help lower blood pressure, influence the production of sex hormones estrogen and testosterone, modulate the immune system, and directly affects the expression of over 900 genes. UV-B can damage skin, but the effect is mitigated by preconditioning your skin with the protective wavelengths in morning sunlight, and further decreased by getting healing late afternoon sun. These daily variations in light characteristics highlight the importance of getting regular sun exposure throughout the day, whether direct or indirect from reflected light even while in the shade outdoors. Knock-on Effects Serotonin production is stimulated by UV-A light in the morning, and as mentioned above, it is the precursor to melatonin, production of which is stimulated by darkness. If we don’t get enough light we don’t make enough serotonin, which means we won’t make as much melatonin later on even if we don’t turn on the lights. And simply taking melatonin on a chronic basis to fix the sleep problem will lead to other problems as mentioned briefly earlier, most obviously too much serotonin (also seen with SSRI use) since it’s no longer being converted to melatonin. Acute symptoms of higher serotonin include restlessness, agitation, confusion, hallucinations, tachycardia and arrhythmias, high blood pressure. tremors, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. Chronically elevated serotonin will lead to increased cortisol production, prolactin excess, and altered levels of thyroid hormone, growth hormone, sex hormones, oxytocin, and insulin. Let’s trace out the further implications of just the first of those effects of higher serotonin: chronically elevated cortisol will lead to weight gain, insulin resistance, hypertension, heart disease, low immune function, muscle weakness, osteoporosis, mood disorders, cognitive impairment, reproductive hormone imbalances, skin and hair problems, and digestive upset. It does this by affecting the levels of insulin, thyroid hormones, sex hormones, growth hormone, prolactin, adrenaline, leptin and ghrelin. And we could keep going down each of these pathways documenting how each disruption spreads outward in every widening concentric circles over time from any unnatural tweak that is made to our physiology. This is why we can only effectively speak to our bodies using the natural signals they’ve been designed to understand. Health is a function of an irreducibly complex system of environmental inputs. You can never put an irreducibly complex environment in a simple pill. Hormonal Rhythms All our hormones are also on circadian rhythms. So if you get too much light throughout the year (by turning the lights on at sunset) you’re going to burn out your thyroid, adrenals, ovaries/testes, and everything else that is stimulated by light. Just like overeating refined carbs may help precipitate pancreatic exhaustion and diabetes, consuming too much light and the wrong kind of light (especially blue without the rest) will necessarily lead to exhaustion of all the hormonal systems that help you function during the day light hours (and disrupt nighttime-peaking hormones like melatonin, growth hormone, prolactin, and leptin). This will lead to the typical diseases we see all the time in the modern world: insulin resistance and diabetes (via stress, cortisol and glucose), cancer (via the last), hypothyroidism, heart disease (via stress and sympathetic overactivity), “adrenal fatigue,” chronic fatigue syndrome, burnout, autoimmune diseases (disrupted POMC), hypertension, etc. Thank you for reading Dr. Syed Haider. This post is public so feel free to share it. Share Conclusion So if you’re struggling with jet lag or insomnia, try eating early and getting your morning sun (and if its a bad case then consider some of the other things above) and let me know what happens. And if you’re struggling with chronic disease, try aligning yourself with your natural environment in order to optimize your hormonal cycles and other bodily functions that are designed for the natural environment. Finally to close the loop on the title re: Sherpas. Why don’t they get jet lag? Because they only fly up and down Mt Everest. Ha ha. Seriously though, there is no research I could find on jet lag differentials by population or background, but it would make sense that if jet lag is in part due to a form of high altitude sickness and is more likely in those living out of sync with their natural environments, then a Sherpa would be less prone to it since they are acclimated to high altitudes and live in touch with their natural surroundings.

  • Israel commits three massacres in less than one hour; a survivor says, “We are killed by American missiles” – Day 283
    [email protected] July 17, 2024 american support for israel, annexation, Bezalel Smotrich, gazan with down syndrome, genocide, Hebron, israeli massacres, palestinian journalist, tax deductible donations to israel, us made weapons in israel
    Video footage verified by Al Jazeera’s fact-checking agency Sanad has seen a young man carry the remnants of the rockets that targeted a school in the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza.

    He lamented that the displaced Palestinians were being killed by Israel with American missiles.

    “We found children beheaded and people turned into corpses and body parts inside the school, and I cannot describe the scene from the horror of the bombing,” he said.

    The footage documented the destruction and the body parts scattered in the courtyard of the school, which was crowded with displaced people.

    Muhammad Abdullah Mishmish, programme director at Sawt Al-Awsa Radio, has been killed in Israel’s war on Gaza, according to the enclave’s Government Media Office.

    The statement on Telegram did not elaborate on the circumstances, time or place of his death.

    Mishmish is the 160th journalist killed in the war, the announcement said.

    Gaza man with Down’s syndrome attacked by IDF dog and left to die, mother tells BBC


    BBC reports: Muhammed Bhar was 24 and had Down’s syndrome and autism. His mother, Nabila Bhar, 70, told the BBC: “He didn’t know how to eat, drink, or change his clothes. I’m the one who changed his nappies. I’m the one who fed him. He didn’t know how to do anything by himself.”

    In a weary tone, Nabila, who is a widow, reeled off the names of relatives’ homes where they’d sought shelter.

    “We evacuated around 15 times. We would go to Jibreel’s place, but then there would be bombing at Jibreel’s place. We would go to Haydar Square, but then there would be bombing at Haydar Square. We would go to Rimal, but then there would be bombing at Rimal. We would go to Shawa Square, but there would be bombing at Shawa Square.”

    On June 27, they came back home to Gaza City, only to be ordered to evacuate once again. But the Bhars were tired of moving, so they stayed.

    “We were under siege for seven days. The tanks and soldiers were all around the house… Muhammed was staying on his sofa…and he didn’t like sitting anywhere except for there,” says Nabila.

    For Muhammed war meant loud, violent sounds, the air vibrating with the concussion from shells exploding nearby. None of this could be explained to him.

    “He would panic and say, ‘I’m scared, scared’,” Nabila remembers.

    On 3 July, according to the family, the IDF raided their home on Nazaz Street. Nabila says there were several dozen soldiers with a combat dog – animals used to find Hamas fighters, and check for booby traps and explosives.

    At first she heard them “breaking in and smashing everything” before the soldiers and dog arrived in the room.

    Referring to Muhammed, she says: “I told them, ‘He’s disabled, disabled. Have mercy on him, he’s disabled. Keep the dog away from him.’”

    Nabila saw the animal attack Muhammed….

    Israel’s restrictions on movement in Hebron hurdle to ‘essential services’: ICRC

    The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) says the restrictions on movement imposed by Israel, specifically in the “H2” area in Hebron’s Old City, “make it difficult, and sometimes impossible, for Palestinians to access essential services”.

    Israeli authorities have imposed these restrictions for more than 20 years, leaving an impact on “basic services many need daily to survive”, the ICRC said on X.

    The H2 area of Hebron in the occupied West Bank is 20 percent of the Palestinian city, where about 700 Israelis live in illegal settlements and the Israeli military has full control.

    H2’s Palestinian population is about 35,000.

    RECOMMENDED READING: Fear, hunger and displacement follows Israel’s worsening abuse of Palestinians in Hebron.

    Israel minister demands West Bank annexation if UN court rules against it

    Al Jazeera reports: Hardline Israeli Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich called on the prime minister to annex the occupied West Bank if the International Court of Justice (ICJ) rules Israeli settlements are illegal this week.

    Smotrich reportedly told reporters this week, “no one will move the people of Israel from their land.”

    The UN’s top court is expected to deliver a non-binding ruling on the legal ramifications of Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories on Friday.

    “I hereby call on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – if the International Court of Justice in The Hague does decide that the settlement enterprise is illegal – respond to them with a historic decision of applying sovereignty to the territories of the homeland,” said Smotrich.

    The far-right minister also promised to “thwart the establishment of a Palestinian state through massive construction, regulating settlements, building roads and other measures in the field” – all moves illegal under international law.

    Fifty-two countries presented arguments at the ICJ, also known as the World Court, about the legal consequences of Israel’s actions in the occupied territories in February, after the UN General Assembly asked it in 2022 for an advisory opinion.

    Smotrich himself lives in an illegal settlement.

    Far-right groups that block aid to Gaza receive tax-deductible donations from US and Israel

    Associated Press reports: Under American pressure, Israel has pledged to deliver large quantities of humanitarian aid into the war-ravaged Gaza Strip. But at the same time, the U.S. and Israel have allowed tax-deductible donations amounting to $200,000 to far-right groups that have blocked that aid from being delivered, The Associated Press and the Israeli investigative site Shomrim have found.

    Incentivizing these donations by making them tax-deductible runs counter to America’s and Israel’s stated commitments to allow unlimited food, water and medicine into Gaza, say groups working to get more aid into the territory. Donations have continued even after the U.S. imposed sanctions against one of these groups.

    “If you’re on the one hand saying you’re allowing aid in but then also facilitating the actions of groups that are blocking it, can you really say you’re facilitating aid?” said Tania Hary, executive director of Gisha, an Israeli nonprofit that has long called on Israel to improve conditions in the territory.

    Israeli officials did not respond to requests for comment. The U.S. State Department said it is committed to ensuring the delivery of aid, but had no comment on the fundraising efforts by the far-right groups.

    NOTE: Israel has illegally built around 280 settlements on Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, which are home to more than 700,000 illegal settlers. Israeli settlements and settlers on Palestinian land are a violation of international law, and considered by many Palestinians to be the main barrier to any lasting peace agreement. Settlers, moreover, have a history of violence against Palestinians, often with the assistance of Israeli military forces.

    Some Israeli settler groups have attacked trucks loaded with aid in order to keep them from reaching Gaza.

    Revealed: America’s secret special forces flights to Israel from UK base on Cyprus

    Declassified UK reports: The US Air Force has been sending unmarked planes from Britain’s base on Cyprus to Israel since it began bombing Gaza, it can be revealed.

    The planes are all C-295 and CN-235 aircraft, which are believed to be used by American special forces.

    Declassified has found 18 of these aircraft which have gone from the sprawling British air base on Cyprus, RAF Akrotiri, to Israel’s coastal city Tel Aviv since October 7.

    Akrotiri is the key node in the international effort to arm and provide logistical support for Israel’s assault on Gaza.

    But the UK government has always refused to divulge any information about US activities at Akrotiri, which is known to include transporting weapons to Israel.

    Asked in May how many US Air Force (USAF) flights had taken off from the base since October 7, defense minister Leo Docherty said: “The Ministry of Defense does not comment on the operations of our Allies.”

    But Declassified discovered the unmarked planes that flew from Akrotiri to Israel from November to June have a serial number showing they are operated by the USAF. Most of these journeys had the flight number GONZO62.

    The new information could further implicate British ministers in war crimes in Gaza. In November 2023, a US military official revealed that American special forces were stationed in Israel and “actively helping the Israelis”.

    A spokesperson for the UK Ministry of Defense would only tell Declassified: “In response to the situation in Israel and Gaza, we are working with international partners to de-escalate the conflict, reinforce stability and support humanitarian efforts in the region. Any use of UK bases will be in line with these objectives.”

    ‘Stunning Abdication’: Appeals Court Dismisses Biden Genocide Complicity Case

    Common Dreams reports: Palestine defenders on Tuesday decried a U.S. federal appellate panel’s dismissal of a case brought by Palestinians accusing senior Biden administration officials of failing to prevent and complicity in Israeli genocide in Gaza.

    A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco affirmed a lower court’s dismissal of the lawsuit against President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, which was led by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) on behalf of several Palestinian groups and individuals.

    During a Tuesday interview on Democracy Now!, CCR attorney Katherine Gallagher—who represented plaintiffs in the case—said its dismissal “essentially gives the blank check to carry out any kind of conduct that the executive wants in times of genocide, in times of war.”

    “We turned to the law to help stop the horror, and the court chose to do nothing,” said one plaintiff in the case. “We are beyond disappointed.”

    STATISTICS OCTOBER 7 – JULY 16:

    Palestinian death toll from October 7 – July 16: at least 39,370* (38,794 in Gaza* – 11,445 women (30%), 16,034 children as of June 17. [The Ministry’s figures have been contested by the Israeli authorities, although they have been accepted as accurate by Israeli intelligence services, the UN, and WHO. These data are supported by independent analyses, comparing changes in the number of deaths of UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) staff with those reported by the Ministry, which found claims of data fabrication implausible.]

    This is expected to be a significant undercount since thousands of those killed have yet to be identified – and at least 576 in the West Bank (~140 children). This does not include an estimated 10,000 more still buried under rubble (4,900 women and children). Euro-Med Monitor reports 46,848 Palestinian deaths.

    Lancet: “Applying a conservative estimate of four indirect deaths per one direct death9 to the 37,396 deaths reported, it is not implausible to estimate that up to 186 000 or even more deaths could be attributable to the current conflict in Gaza.

    Ralph Nader earlier estimated 200,000 Palestinians may have been killed in Gaza.

    At least 46 Palestinians have died in Israeli prisons (27 from Gaza, 18 from West Bank).
    At least 40 Palestinians have died due to malnutrition**.
    About 1.7 million, or 75% of Gaza’s population are currently displaced.
    2.15 million (out of total population of 2.3 million) are projected to face Crisis or worse levels of food insecurity.
    Palestinian injuries from October 7 – July 16: at least 94,784 (including at least 89,364 in Gaza and 5,420 in the West Bank, including 830 children).

    [It remains unknown how many Americans are among the casualties in Gaza.]
    Reported Israeli death toll from October 7 – July 16: ~1,481 (~1,139 on October 7, 2023, of which ~32 were Americans, and ~36 were children); 326 military forces since the ground invasion began in Gaza; 16 in the West Bank) and~8,730 injured.

    Times of Israel reports: The IDF listed 41 soldiers killed due to friendly fire in Gaza and other military-related accidents – nearly 16%.

    NOTE: It is unknown at this time how many of the deaths and injuries in Israel on October 7 were caused by Israeli soldiers.

    *Previously, IAK did not include 471 Gazans killed in the Al Ahli hospital blast since the source of the projectile was being disputed. However, given that much evidence points to Israel as the culprit, Israel had previously bombed the hospital and has attacked many others, Israel is prohibiting outside experts from investigating the scene, and since the UN and other agencies are including the deaths from the attack in their cumulative totals, if Americans knew is now also doing so.**

    Euro-Med Monitor reports that Gaza’s elderly are dying at an alarmingly high rate. The majority die at home and are buried either close to their residences or in makeshift graves dispersed across the Strip. There are currently more than 140 such cemeteries. Additionally, according to Euromed, thousands have died from starvation, malnourishment, and inadequate medical care; these are considered indirect victims as they were not registered in hospitals.

    † For most of the conflict, women and children accounted for about 70% of deaths in Gaza, with children making up a little over 40% of those killed, according to official statistics.

(photo) Revealed: America’s secret special forces flights to Israel from UK base on Cyprus Declassified UK reports: The US Air Force has been sending unmarked planes from Britain’s base on Cyprus to Israel since it began bombing Gaza, it can be revealed. The planes are all C-295 and CN-235 aircraft, which are believed to be used by American special forces. Declassified has found 18 of these aircraft which have gone from the sprawling British air base on Cyprus, RAF Akrotiri, to Israel’s coastal city Tel Aviv since October 7. Akrotiri is the key node in the international effort to arm and provide logistical support for Israel’s assault on Gaza. But the UK government has always refused to divulge any information about US activities at Akrotiri, which is known to include transporting weapons to Israel. Asked in May how many US Air Force (USAF) flights had taken off from the base since October 7, defense minister Leo Docherty said: “The Ministry of Defense does not comment on the operations of our Allies.” But Declassified discovered the unmarked planes that flew from Akrotiri to Israel from November to June have a serial number showing they are operated by the USAF. Most of these journeys had the flight number GONZO62. The new information could further implicate British ministers in war crimes in Gaza. In November 2023, a US military official revealed that American special forces were stationed in Israel and “actively helping the Israelis”. A spokesperson for the UK Ministry of Defense would only tell Declassified: “In response to the situation in Israel and Gaza, we are working with international partners to de-escalate the conflict, reinforce stability and support humanitarian efforts in the region. Any use of UK bases will be in line with these objectives.” (Read the full article here.) ‘Stunning Abdication’: Appeals Court Dismisses Biden Genocide Complicity Case Common Dreams reports: Palestine defenders on Tuesday decried a U.S. federal appellate panel’s dismissal of a case brought by Palestinians accusing senior Biden administration officials of failing to prevent and complicity in Israeli genocide in Gaza. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco affirmed a lower court’s dismissal of the lawsuit against President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, which was led by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) on behalf of several Palestinian groups and individuals. During a Tuesday interview on Democracy Now!, CCR attorney Katherine Gallagher—who represented plaintiffs in the case—said its dismissal “essentially gives the blank check to carry out any kind of conduct that the executive wants in times of genocide, in times of war.” “We turned to the law to help stop the horror, and the court chose to do nothing,” said one plaintiff in the case. “We are beyond disappointed.” MORE NEWS: IMEMC Daily Reports.

[The Ministry’s figures have been contested by the Israeli authorities, although they have been accepted as accurate by Israeli intelligence services, the UN, and WHO. These data are supported by independent analyses, comparing changes in the number of deaths of UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) staff with those reported by the Ministry, which found claims of data fabrication implausible.] This is expected to be a significant undercount since thousands of those killed have yet to be identified – and at least 576 in the West Bank (~140 children). This does not include an estimated 10,000 more still buried under rubble (4,900 women and children). Euro-Med Monitor reports 46,848 Palestinian deaths. Lancet: “Applying a conservative estimate of four indirect deaths per one direct death9 to the 37,396 deaths reported, it is not implausible to estimate that up to 186 000 or even more deaths could be attributable to the current conflict in Gaza. Ralph Nader earlier estimated 200,000 Palestinians may have been killed in Gaza. At least 46 Palestinians have died in Israeli prisons (27 from Gaza, 18 from West Bank). At least 40 Palestinians have died due to malnutrition**. About 1.7 million, or 75% of Gaza’s population are currently displaced. 2.15 million (out of total population of 2.3 million) are projected to face Crisis or worse levels of food insecurity. Palestinian injuries from October 7 – July 16: at least 94,784 (including at least 89,364 in Gaza and 5,420 in the West Bank, including 830 children). [It remains unknown how many Americans are among the casualties in Gaza.] Reported Israeli death toll from October 7 – July 16: ~1,481 (~1,139 on October 7, 2023, of which ~32 were Americans, and ~36 were children); 326 military forces since the ground invasion began in Gaza; 16 in the West Bank) and~8,730 injured. Times of Israel reports: The IDF listed 41 soldiers killed due to friendly fire in Gaza and other military-related accidents – nearly 16%. NOTE: It is unknown at this time how many of the deaths and injuries in Israel on October 7 were caused by Israeli soldiers. *Previously, IAK did not include 471 Gazans killed in the Al Ahli hospital blast since the source of the projectile was being disputed. However, given that much evidence points to Israel as the culprit, Israel had previously bombed the hospital and has attacked many others, Israel is prohibiting outside experts from investigating the scene, and since the UN and other agencies are including the deaths from the attack in their cumulative totals, if Americans knew is now also doing so.** Euro-Med Monitor reports that Gaza’s elderly are dying at an alarmingly high rate. The majority die at home and are buried either close to their residences or in makeshift graves dispersed across the Strip. There are currently more than 140 such cemeteries. Additionally, according to Euromed, thousands have died from starvation, malnourishment, and inadequate medical care; these are considered indirect victims as they were not registered in hospitals. † For most of the conflict, women and children accounted for about 70% of deaths in Gaza, with children making up a little over 40% of those killed, according to official statistics.

  • WATCH: Viral video captures devastating tornado tearing through southern Indiana
    Harsh weather across the Midwestern United States of America on Tuesday resulted in a tornado, and it was captured tearing the roof off a home in southern Indiana.

    This dangerous storm pattern continues after Monday’s severe weather outbreak, which brought damage and tornadoes to Oklahoma, reported Daily Mail.

    Drone footage shows a twister spinning west of Georgetown, Indiana, around 1 pm on Tuesday. The video shows how the tornado lifted parts of a structure and sent debris flying. The storm chasers said the footage shows the tornado ripping off a roof, throwing it 100-feet high in the air.

    Fox Weather reported that during the tornado, a “Tornado Watch” was in effect for parts of Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio, due to severe storms with potential tornadoes, hail, and dangerous winds. Georgetown was also under a tornado warning on Tuesday evening.

    Reacting to the video, one social media user said, “I hope people and animals are fine!” Another user commented, “Oh No the COSTCOOOOOOO.” A third user wrote, “It’s twisted.”

  • Make Meat Great Again! Don’t Let The Globalists Pull This Off
    Corey Lynn

    It’s 2023, and most people are scurrying about their days making plans for the Holidays and figuring out whether to serve up a roast, a turkey or a ham. Meanwhile, over 70,000 clowns are toasting champagne at their 5 star hotels in Dubai while thinking they can tell people whether or not a roast, a turkey, or a ham is allowed. While flying around in their private jets, they giggle as they cook up their conspiracy theory on “climate change” to convince people to eat less meat. While they’re dancing with politicians and coercing nations to set new policies and regulations to harm the productivity of farmers and ranchers – our food source – people should be supporting them and stand together in defiance of this nonsense.

    The funny thing is, while these clowns conspire and celebrate their narrative to save the planet, in part by the absurdity of reducing meat consumption, many of these same clowns are supporters of Merck and were pushing for a vote at Codex to inject cattle, pigs, and poultry with Merck’s toxic steroid-like drug zilpaterol hydrochloride to produce more muscle and less fat. This of course brings a fortune to Merck, while benefiting the bottom line for ranchers who are ok with poisoning their livestock and humans. How’s that for an oxymoron? That’s right, on November 28th, while the clowns sipped champagne on their private jets headed to the COP28 in Dubai to “save the world from climate change” and instruct nations to reduce meat consumption, their counterparts were at FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy, voting to approve this poison.

    So the question is – do they want to reduce meat consumption or do they want to muscle up the meat and make it more desirable to eat so people devour toxins? Perhaps it’s both. Who can keep track anymore? The cocktails are endless, from GMOs to hormones, antibiotics, DNA and mRNA, or growing meat in a petri dish or 3D printing it. These globalists want to make it so inedible, no one will want to consume meat.

    According to Scott Tips, President of The National Health Federation, who attends these Codex meetings to fight for the safety of consumers, this is all about money, and by adopting the Codex standard zilpaterol can “flood the world markets unobstructed.” This would allow Merck to force all of the countries who voted against it to open their markets to zilpaterol-tainted meat as well. Most of the western hemisphere has already been using zilpaterol despite the fact that there has never been a risk assessment done, it’s banned from use in horses because it’s not safe, and Merck actually withdrew it from the market in 2015 before working its way back in. At that time, under Merck’s brand name “Zilmax,” even Cargill and Tyson suspended their purchases of Zilmax-fed cattle in North America.

    The many-years-long battle against the toxic vet drug came to an end when the Commission voted 88-49 with 11 abstentions to approve zilpaterol MRLs (maximum residue levels). Scott Tips reported that those “speaking against the standard were the European Union, Switzerland, Norway, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkey, China, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iran, Iraq, UAE, Algeria, Belarus, Syria, Tunisia, North Macedonia, and Cameroon. Those pushing the standard were the United States, Canada, New Zealand, many African states, and every single one of the Western-hemisphere countries. The UK remained strangely aloof, as if wishing to avoid offending anyone.”

    Back in the U.S., Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has been trying to get the PRIME Act passed for nearly 6 years, but feels he is beginning to make headway now. If passed, the PRIME Act will make it much easier for local farms to compete with the handful of big meat companies, by allowing safe, local processing options rather than a farmer having to travel for hours to a USDA-inspected processing facility.

    According to Rep. Massie, “Current law exempts custom slaughter of animals from federal inspection regulations, but only if the meat is slaughtered for personal, household, guest, and employee use (21 U.S.C. § 623(a)). This means that in order to sell individual cuts of locally raised meats to consumers, farmers and ranchers must first send their animals to one of a limited number of USDA-inspected slaughterhouses. These USDA-inspected slaughterhouses are sometimes hundreds of miles away from farms and ranches, adding substantial transportation costs and increasing the chances of locally raised meat co-mingling with industrially-produced meat. The PRIME Act would expand the current custom exemption and allow small farms, ranches, and slaughterhouses to thrive.”

    While the battle on meat continues, it’s important for everyone to do their due diligence when it comes to shopping for and purchasing meat. According to the USDA, in March they released a proposed rule with new regulatory requirements on those voluntary “Product of USA” labels, whereby the claim can only be used on meat, poultry and egg products if they are derived from animals that are born, raised, slaughtered and processed in the USA. So pay attention to the labels – on all food for that matter. There are some small farms that offer co-ops whereby several people can go in on the ownership of cattle and split the beef. There are also a handful of companies who ship bundles of beef. In either case, it’s always important to confirm how the cattle are raised and processed, and if they are given zilpaterol, antibiotics, hormones, or mRNA. Always support your local farmers, whether it be for meat, vegetables, fruit, raw milk, or other items. They are quite literally our key to survival, unless of course you are able to grow enough food and raise livestock to support your entire family on an annual basis. They deserve our support and respect.

    Corey’s Digs has done extensive research on an incredible, fully vertically integrated large ranching operation in the U.S. who controls their entire supply chain. It’s quite impressive. The cattle are all pasture raised on over 290,000 combined acres by their own mothers. This is a premium lineage of all Prime and High Choice, with the processing facility being right on the ranch, and the beef is aged for 21 days before shipping. Never ever zilpaterol, antibiotics, hormones, mRNA, or vaccines. They ship a variety of bundles monthly or every other month, along with individual added cuts, straight from the ranch to a customer’s home. The biggest difference is the taste – it’s amazing how delicious Prime beef is without all those toxins. The beef is exclusive to members through Shopping Club Freedom, which boasts hundreds of non toxic products that everyone uses in their daily lives, all of which are patented and produced by this same company right here in the U.S. It’s one heck of a solution to ensure access to healthy products and beef while sticking it to the globalists who want to rule everyone’s life, which is why Corey’s Digs has partnered with them and has been shopping there for over two years now.

    No one should let these madmen make choices for them or their families. Everyone should support U.S. farmers and ranchers, get behind Rep. Massie’s PRIME Act, and don’t buy the poison these globalists are selling.

  • How To Tell If Someone Is Controlled Opposition
    Every day in my article comments and social media I get people warning me that this or that journalist, activist or politician is “controlled opposition”, meaning someone who pretends to oppose the establishment while covertly serving it. These warnings usually come after I’ve shared or written about something a dissident figure has said or done, and are usually accompanied by an admonishment not to ever do so again lest I spread their malign influence. If you’ve been involved in any kind of anti-establishment activism for any length of time, you’ve probably encountered this yourself.

    Paranoia pervades dissident circles of all sorts, and it’s not entirely without merit, since establishment infiltration of political movements is the norm, not the exception. This article by Truthout documents multiple instances in which movements like the 1968 Chicago DNC protest and Peter Camejo’s 1976 anti-establishment presidential campaign were so heavily infiltrated by opaque government agencies that one out of every six people involved in them were secretly working for the feds. This trend of infiltration is known to have continued into the current day with movements like Occupy and Black Lives Matter, and we’d be ignorant not to assume that this has been at least as rampant in online circles where people organize and disseminate ideas and information.

    So it’s understandable that people are extremely vigilant about prominent figures in dissident circles, and it’s understandable that people feel paranoid. Over and over again we see shining anti-establishment movements fizzle or rendered impotent, often seemingly with the help of people we once trusted, and it’s hard not to get frustrated and become suspicious of anyone who starts shining bright in antiwar, leftist, or other dissident circles.

    The trouble with this paranoia and suspicion is that it doesn’t seem to function with any kind of intelligence. I have received such “controlled opposition” warnings about pretty much every prominent dissident figure in the English-speaking world at one time or another, and if I believed them all there’d be no one in the world whose words I could share or write about, including my own. I myself have been accused at different times of being a “plant” for the CIA, the Russians, Assad, the Chinese Communist Party, the Iranian mullahs, the alt-right, Trump, Pyongyang, and the Palestinians, which if all true would make me a very busy girl indeed. Since I know I’m not a plant for anybody, I know for myself that such accusations don’t come from a place of insight with any degree of reliability, and I’ve therefore had to find my own way to navigate this confusing landscape.

    So since I know that infiltration and manipulation happens, but I don’t find other people’s whisperings about “controlled opposition” useful, how do I figure out who’s trustworthy and who isn’t? How do I figure out who it’s safe to cite in my work and who to avoid? How do I separate the fool’s gold from the genuine article? The shit from the Shinola?

    Here is my answer: I don’t.

    I spend no mental energy whatsoever concerning myself with who may or may not be a secret pro-establishment influencer, and for good reason. There’s no way to know for sure if an individual is secretly scheming to sheep dog the populace into support for the status quo, and as long as government agencies remain opaque and unaccountable there will never be a way to know who might be secretly working for them. What I can know is (A) what I’ve learned about the world, (B) the ways the political/media class is lying about what I know about the world, and (C) when someone says something which highlights those lies. I therefore pay attention solely to the message, and no attention to what may or may not be the hidden underlying agenda of the messenger.

    In other words, if someone says something which disrupts establishment narratives, I help elevate what they’re saying in that specific instance. I do this not because I know that the speaker is legit and uncorrupted, but because their message in that moment is worthy of elevation. You can navigate the entire political/media landscape in this way.

    Since society is made of narrative and power ultimately rests in the hands of those who are able to control those narratives, it makes no sense to fixate on individuals and it makes perfect sense to focus on narrative. What narratives are being pushed by those in power? How are those narratives being disrupted, undermined and debunked by things that are being said by dissident voices? This is the most effective lens through which to view the battle against the unelected power establishment which is crushing us all to death, not some childish fixation on who should or shouldn’t be our hero.

    Have no heroes. Trust nobody but your own inner sense-maker. If someone says something that disrupts establishment narratives based on what you understand those narratives to be, go ahead and help throw what they’re saying into the gears of the machine. Don’t make a religion out of it, don’t get attached to it, just use it as a weapon to attack the narrative matrix.

    This by the way is also a useful lens to look through in spiritual development, if you’re into that sort of thing. When you enter spiritual circles concerned with enlightenment, you’ll see all sorts of debates about what teachers are really enlightened and which ones are just pretending, and these conversations mimic precisely the exact kinds of debates you’ll see in marginalized political circles about who’s the real deal and who’s controlled opposition. But the truth is there’s no way to know with certainty what’s going on in someone else’s head, and the best thing to do is to stop concerning yourself with who has and has not attained some special realization or whatever and just focus on what they’re saying. If a spiritual teacher says something which helps you notice something you’d never noticed before about consciousness or perception, then use what they said and maybe stick around to see if they have anything else useful to say. If not, move on.

    There’s no reason to worry about what journalists, activists and politicians are coming from a place of authenticity if you know yourself to be coming from a place of authenticity. As you learn more about the world and get better at distinguishing fact from narrative, you will get better and better at seeing the narrative matrix clearly, and you’ll come to see all the things that are being said about what’s going on in the world as weapons in the battle of narrative control. Pick up whatever weapons seem useful to you and use them in whatever ways they’ll be useful, without wasting energy concerning yourself with the individuals who created them. Call the bullshit what it is and use the truth for what it is.

    Or maybe I’m fulla shit! Maybe I myself am being paid to say these things by some powerful influencer; you can’t know for sure. All you can know is what’s useful for you. If you really find it useful to try and organize individual dissident figures into “hero” and “controlled opposition” boxes, if that genuinely helps you take apart the system that’s hurting us all, you’d know that better than I would. But if you find what I’m saying here useful, pick it up and add it to your toolbox.

    How To Tell If Someone Is Controlled Opposition Every day in my article comments and social media I get people warning me that this or that journalist, activist or politician is “controlled opposition”, meaning someone who pretends to oppose the establishment while covertly serving it. These warnings usually come after I’ve shared or written about something a dissident figure has said or done, and are usually accompanied by an admonishment not to ever do so again lest I spread their malign influence. If you’ve been involved in any kind of anti-establishment activism for any length of time, you’ve probably encountered this yourself. Paranoia pervades dissident circles of all sorts, and it’s not entirely without merit, since establishment infiltration of political movements is the norm, not the exception. This article by Truthout documents multiple instances in which movements like the 1968 Chicago DNC protest and Peter Camejo’s 1976 anti-establishment presidential campaign were so heavily infiltrated by opaque government agencies that one out of every six people involved in them were secretly working for the feds. This trend of infiltration is known to have continued into the current day with movements like Occupy and Black Lives Matter, and we’d be ignorant not to assume that this has been at least as rampant in online circles where people organize and disseminate ideas and information. So it’s understandable that people are extremely vigilant about prominent figures in dissident circles, and it’s understandable that people feel paranoid. Over and over again we see shining anti-establishment movements fizzle or rendered impotent, often seemingly with the help of people we once trusted, and it’s hard not to get frustrated and become suspicious of anyone who starts shining bright in antiwar, leftist, or other dissident circles. The trouble with this paranoia and suspicion is that it doesn’t seem to function with any kind of intelligence. I have received such “controlled opposition” warnings about pretty much every prominent dissident figure in the English-speaking world at one time or another, and if I believed them all there’d be no one in the world whose words I could share or write about, including my own. I myself have been accused at different times of being a “plant” for the CIA, the Russians, Assad, the Chinese Communist Party, the Iranian mullahs, the alt-right, Trump, Pyongyang, and the Palestinians, which if all true would make me a very busy girl indeed. Since I know I’m not a plant for anybody, I know for myself that such accusations don’t come from a place of insight with any degree of reliability, and I’ve therefore had to find my own way to navigate this confusing landscape. So since I know that infiltration and manipulation happens, but I don’t find other people’s whisperings about “controlled opposition” useful, how do I figure out who’s trustworthy and who isn’t? How do I figure out who it’s safe to cite in my work and who to avoid? How do I separate the fool’s gold from the genuine article? The shit from the Shinola? Here is my answer: I don’t. I spend no mental energy whatsoever concerning myself with who may or may not be a secret pro-establishment influencer, and for good reason. There’s no way to know for sure if an individual is secretly scheming to sheep dog the populace into support for the status quo, and as long as government agencies remain opaque and unaccountable there will never be a way to know who might be secretly working for them. What I can know is (A) what I’ve learned about the world, (B) the ways the political/media class is lying about what I know about the world, and (C) when someone says something which highlights those lies. I therefore pay attention solely to the message, and no attention to what may or may not be the hidden underlying agenda of the messenger. In other words, if someone says something which disrupts establishment narratives, I help elevate what they’re saying in that specific instance. I do this not because I know that the speaker is legit and uncorrupted, but because their message in that moment is worthy of elevation. You can navigate the entire political/media landscape in this way. Since society is made of narrative and power ultimately rests in the hands of those who are able to control those narratives, it makes no sense to fixate on individuals and it makes perfect sense to focus on narrative. What narratives are being pushed by those in power? How are those narratives being disrupted, undermined and debunked by things that are being said by dissident voices? This is the most effective lens through which to view the battle against the unelected power establishment which is crushing us all to death, not some childish fixation on who should or shouldn’t be our hero. Have no heroes. Trust nobody but your own inner sense-maker. If someone says something that disrupts establishment narratives based on what you understand those narratives to be, go ahead and help throw what they’re saying into the gears of the machine. Don’t make a religion out of it, don’t get attached to it, just use it as a weapon to attack the narrative matrix. This by the way is also a useful lens to look through in spiritual development, if you’re into that sort of thing. When you enter spiritual circles concerned with enlightenment, you’ll see all sorts of debates about what teachers are really enlightened and which ones are just pretending, and these conversations mimic precisely the exact kinds of debates you’ll see in marginalized political circles about who’s the real deal and who’s controlled opposition. But the truth is there’s no way to know with certainty what’s going on in someone else’s head, and the best thing to do is to stop concerning yourself with who has and has not attained some special realization or whatever and just focus on what they’re saying. If a spiritual teacher says something which helps you notice something you’d never noticed before about consciousness or perception, then use what they said and maybe stick around to see if they have anything else useful to say. If not, move on. There’s no reason to worry about what journalists, activists and politicians are coming from a place of authenticity if you know yourself to be coming from a place of authenticity. As you learn more about the world and get better at distinguishing fact from narrative, you will get better and better at seeing the narrative matrix clearly, and you’ll come to see all the things that are being said about what’s going on in the world as weapons in the battle of narrative control. Pick up whatever weapons seem useful to you and use them in whatever ways they’ll be useful, without wasting energy concerning yourself with the individuals who created them. Call the bullshit what it is and use the truth for what it is. Or maybe I’m fulla shit! Maybe I myself am being paid to say these things by some powerful influencer; you can’t know for sure. All you can know is what’s useful for you. If you really find it useful to try and organize individual dissident figures into “hero” and “controlled opposition” boxes, if that genuinely helps you take apart the system that’s hurting us all, you’d know that better than I would.

    ‘Chance’ to achieve ceasefire deal as talks set to continue in Qatar

    The Israeli negotiations team returned from Qatar after the first meetings of the resumed ceasefire talks on Wednesday to update the government ahead of upcoming talks in Cairo, Israel’s Channel 12 reported.

    On Wednesday, the heads of the Israeli Mossad, the CIA, and the Egyptian intelligence met in Doha with Qatar’s Prime Minister to discuss a potential deal with Hamas, as several Israeli and U.S. sources reported “progress” in the talks to reach a deal with the Palestinian group. In Washington, U.S. National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, said that Washington sees an opportunity to reach a ceasefire and prisoners’ exchange deal in Gaza.

    Meanwhile, the Israeli news site, Walla, quoted an unnamed Israeli official involved in the talks saying that the remaining issues to reach an agreement on are the return of displaced Palestinians to the northern Gaza Strip, the names of high-ranking Palestinian prisoners to be released, and the Israeli withdrawal from the Philadelphi corridor along the Egyptian border.

    For its part, Hamas said in a statement that Israel is prolonging the talks in order to sabotage them. The group added that it had not informed mediators of any updates regarding the talks.

    Last week, Israeli media reported that leaders of Israeli security branches were “shocked” at Netanyahu’s statements setting preconditions for a deal. Israeli daily Haaretz also published a report saying that Netanyahu had used sensitive intelligence information and leaked it to the media in order to sabotage previous talks in recent months.

    Netanyahu, who leads a fragile government coalition with allies opposed to ending the war, said on Wednesday that any coming deal must allow Israel to resume the war after releasing its captives, and that the war “will continue to achieve its goals.”

    Israel destroys Shuja’yya, tells Palestinians in Gaza City to leave

    The Israeli army has made the Shujaiyeh neighborhood east of Gaza City “uninhabitable” after its destruction in the ongoing assault, which Israel began in the neighborhood two weeks ago, the Palestinian Civil Defense said on Thursday.

    The Civil Defense added that its teams had been able to recover at least 60 dead bodies from some areas of Shuja’iyya, while indicating that Israeli forces were blocking the Civil Defense and medical teams from reaching parts of the neighborhood. The Israeli army launched a surprise attack on Shuja’iyya on June 26, forcing thousands to flee their homes.

    Israel had attacked Shuja’iyya in December of last year and confronted heavy resistance from Palestinian groups. Fighting between Israeli forces and Palestinian resistance groups in Shuja’iyya broke out again since the beginning of the current assault. Last week, the Israeli army admitted that two of its officers were killed in Shuja’iyya.

    Israeli renewed its ground assault on Gaza City last week, pushing forces into the western parts of the city. On Wednesday, Israeli forces dropped leaflets in Gaza City, telling residents to flee south to Deir al-Balah. Israeli strikes also intensified on the city’s neighborhoods, such as the Daraj, Tal al-Hawa, and Sabra neighborhoods.

    In the south of the Strip, Israeli forces killed at least 29 Palestinians in a bombing of a school sheltering displaced families in Abasan, east of Khan Younis, and wounded 53. CNN reported that the remains of Israeli bombs used in the Abasan massacre show that they were US-made GBU-39 bombs. On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Biden administration decided to send new 500-pound bombs to Israel.
