** 24-Apr-2021 World View: Violence grows between Palestinians and far-right Jews in East Jerusalem

The beginnings of this are not clear from the press reports, but
apparently this all began with the start of Ramadan on April 13.
Palestinians wanted to gather in the promenade around the walls to the
Old City to break the Ramadan fast at the end of each day. But
Israeli police had blocked off access, giving Covid restrictions as
the reason. The Palestinians claim that East Jerusalem is Palestinian
territory being illegally occupied by Israel.

There were several nights of sporadic violence until Thursday, but
then a TikTok video went viral, apparently showing an Israeli being
abused by an Arab. That's when the right-wing extremist Jewish
settler organization Lehavah held a large demonstration, chanting
"Death to Arabs" and carrying signs saying "Death to Terrorists."
Palestinians heard about this, and a crowd responded by throwing
firecrackers and setting garbage bins on fire.

Israeli police intervened to keep the two sides apart by blocking the
Damascus Gate. Since then, hundreds of Palestinians, Israelis, and
police have been wounded, with no reports of deaths.

This is the worst violence in years betwee Israeli police and
Palestinians in East Jerusalem.

The violence is spreading to other West Bank cities and the Israeli
Arab city Umm al-Fahm. It has also caused renewed clashes between
Israel's army and Hamas in Gaza, with an exchange of bombings and
rockets.

Americans are way too stupid to reach any conclusion like that,
or know anything about Chechnya, or care. Remember what happened
after the Boston Marathon bombing:

My guess is another large number of Americans fall in that category. Which group is larger? I have no clue.

Finally. An honest statement out of you. You are agenda driven. Yes, I have noticed.

Whose agenda, do you say?

Fortunately we don't need Newton anymore, since we have Einstein, who
made the colonial-era Newton's Laws of Motion obsolete.

Of course, the Germans have their own peculiarities.......

Last month the Telegraph revealed an Oxford professor branded musical notation “colonialist” as part of faculty proposals to challenge the “complicity in white supremacy” of its music curriculum, which spans Mozart and Beethoven.
So they are even taking away Mozart?

Thank God for gangsta rap; otherwise, we wouldn't have anything nice to listen to.

It comes after the universities minister, Michelle Donelan, warned that campuses risk mirroring the Soviet Union if they “whitewash” history.
Yeah. No shit.

Turkey is threatening to leave NATO and ally with China, Russia, and Iran over Biden’s Armenian Genocide statements.

Alas, in the end Turkey will be allied with just China when the war begins.
