Did Biden and Netanyahu conspire to accelerate the genocide of Palestinians by defunding the UNWRA?

Government never acts fast. Usually government officials don’t act until carefully considering actions and weighing pros and cons – often while polling or using focus groups. So when you see a very fast response to an event, it’s safe to assume that the response is based on prior plans against specific contingencies.

Thus, when the Oct 7th attack happened, Israel responded immediately by bombing Gaza, closing the borders and turning off the water – even as they were fighting Hamas fighters within Israel. The plan on how to attack Gaza was ready and could be implemented on the fly. The actual attack by Hamas was unexpected, and thus it took hours for the IDF to even respond to the phone calls by the victims.

Israel and the United States seemed to be equally prepared on what to do in the likely case that the International Court of Justice enjoined Israel from continuing its genocide of Palestinians through starvation and disease. On the same day that the Court issued its order, Israel released claims that employees of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) were involved on the October 7th attack. The United States promptly announced that it would suspend all aid to the UNRWA. In the days following, and despite the lack of any investigation or tested evidence to suggest such involvement, severa other countries announced they would no longer fund the UNRWA. Such actions usually only happen when extreme political pressure is applied by the United States – the type of pressure that forced Belgium back in 2003 to limit its universal jurisdiction law -, so it seems clear that the Biden administration is fully committed to accelerate the genocide of Palestinians.

While the intense and unprecedented bombing of Gaza’s civilian infrastructure has brought the most attention and horror to decent human beings worldwide, Israel’s main method for genocide is actually, in the words of the Genocide Convention, the infliction of “conditions of life calculated to bring about [the] physical destruction” of the Palestinian people in Gaza. From the start, Israel cut off the water and electricity and bombed electricity plans and water tanks. It closed its borders with Gaza and started bombing Gaza’s border with Egypt. It targeted hospitals and doctors, as well as journalists who could speak out about the suffering of the Palestinian people. Israel turned Gaza into a 21st century version of the Warsaw Ghetto. Genocide through starvation and disease can be very effective – about a million of the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust, were killed that way.

Israel and the United States engaged in a wide influence campaign both against South Africa for bringing the genocide case to the ICJ, and against the judges of the ICJ itself. Still, while the two countries probably hoped for a much narrower order – the one issued prohibits Israel from killing or harming Palestinians -, they did anticipate that the order would address the siege. It’s usually quite difficult to prove that an attack against a civilian population is a genocide, as genocide requires an intent to destroy a national or ethnic population, and usually you don’t have genocidaires announcing to the world their intentions to do exactly that – though helpfully for the Court, several Israeli ministers did exactly that. But there are times when you can infer a genocidal intention based on the actions. In the words of former International Criminal Court prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo, “there is an objective element of genocide when you create conditions that will produce the destruction of a group. To not allow water, food and fuel through is to turn all of Gaza into an extermination camp.” Thus Israel and the United States were justified in believing that the ICJ would order Israel to allow humanitarian aid into Gaza. Indeed, in the weeks since the ICJ took the case, Israel had been allowing more aid in, albeit insufficient to actually provide for the needs of most people. Starvation has set in in much of the territory as we speak.

As expected, the ICJ ordered Israel to “take immediate and effective measures to enable the provision of urgently needed basic services and humanitarian assistance to address the adverse conditions of life faced by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.” Israel and the US can’t stop aid from coming into Gaza without violating the ICJ order, so they decided to do the next best thing: defund the organization which actually provides such aid to Palestinians. They won’t bomb the trucks with aid, they’ll just make sure there are not trucks in the first place.

Now, it’s likely that in one month, when the ICJ receives (or not) the report it ordered to issue on how it’s complying with its order, the ICJ will issue another order, perhaps one with more teeth, but by then, tens if not hundreds of thousands of Palestinians may be dead. What Biden and Netanyahu seek. What they conspired to accomplish. What the world is letting them do.

Blackmail Scam – Beware!

Beware of Scam Emails Demanding Bitcoin, Threatening Blackmail - City of  Lone Tree

Scammers are now trying to blackmail you by claiming that they have broken into your computer and taken charge of it. As you can see in the letter I got below, they claim they installed some secret software that allows them to see everything you in your computer, and even watch you. They claim that they’ve seen you log into to porn sites and they will show everyone what you’ve been doing while you look at them, unless you give them a huge sum of money on bitcoin.

Now, it’s obvious that this scam will only work on people who actually masturbate while looking at online porn and who are ashamed of it. I’m sure that’s a very small number, but they work on volume. They send e-mails like this to millions of addresses and some people will fall for them. I’m posting this here just in case you are one of them.

Let’s be clear: it’s a scam. They didn’t break into your computer and they have not been watching you. I can tell you this is true because not only have I not gone to a porn site on my computer, but I don’t even have a camera or microphone installed. Indeed, the e-mail they have for me wouldn’t give them access to my computer in the first place.

Now, if you use gmail, these e-mails are automatically flagged as fishing, and they go directly into your spam folder. But if you don’t, please delete them without paying them any mind. Under no circumstances give the scammers any money.

I have to share bad news with you.
Approximately few months ago I have gained access to your devices, which you use for internet browsing.
After that, I have started tracking your internet activities.

Here is the sequence of events:
Some time ago I have purchased access to email accounts from hackers (nowadays, it is quite simple to purchase such thing online).
Obviously, I have easily managed to log in to your email account (

One week later, I have already installed Trojan virus to Operating Systems of all the devices that you use to access your email.
In fact, it was not really hard at all (since you were following the links from your inbox emails).
All ingenious is simple. =)

This software provides me with access to all the controllers of your devices (e.g., your microphone, video camera and keyboard).
I have downloaded all your information, data, photos, web browsing history to my servers.
I have access to all your messengers, social networks, emails, chat history and contacts list.
My virus continuously refreshes the signatures (it is driver-based), and hence remains invisible for antivirus software.

Likewise, I guess by now you understand why I have stayed undetected until this letter…

While gathering information about you, I have discovered that you are a big fan of adult websites.
You really love visiting porn websites and watching exciting videos, while enduring an enormous amount of pleasure.
Well, I have managed to record a number of your dirty scenes and montaged a few videos, which show the way you masturbate and reach orgasms.

If you have doubts, I can make a few clicks of my mouse and all your videos will be shared to your friends, colleagues and relatives.
I have also no issue at all to make them available for public access.
I guess, you really don’t want that to happen, considering the specificity of the videos you like to watch, (you perfectly know what I mean) it will cause a true catastrophe for you.

Let’s settle it this way:
You transfer $1650 USD to me (in bitcoin equivalent according to the exchange rate at the moment of funds transfer), and once the transfer is received, I will delete all this dirty stuff right away.
After that we will forget about each other. I also promise to deactivate and delete all the harmful software from your devices. Trust me, I keep my word.

This is a fair deal and the price is quite low, considering that I have been checking out your profile and traffic for some time by now.
In case, if you don’t know how to purchase and transfer the bitcoins – you can use any modern search engine.

Here is my bitcoin wallet: bc1qzd5ufq2qqnx0ryh97zfnz64ff9g3ck9mjgc8zl

You have less than 48 hours from the moment you opened this email (precisely 2 days).

Things you need to avoid from doing:
*Do not reply me (I have created this email inside your inbox and generated the return address).
*Do not try to contact police and other security services. In addition, forget about telling this to you friends. If I discover that (as you can see, it is really not so hard, considering that I control all your systems) – your video will be shared to public right away.
*Don’t try to find me – it is absolutely pointless. All the cryptocurrency transactions are anonymous.
*Don’t try to reinstall the OS on your devices or throw them away. It is pointless as well, since all the videos have already been saved at remote servers.

Things you don’t need to worry about:
*That I won’t be able to receive your funds transfer.

  • Don’t worry, I will see it right away, once you complete the transfer, since I continuously track all your activities (my trojan virus has got a remote-control feature, something like TeamViewer).
    *That I will share your videos anyway after you complete the funds transfer.
  • Trust me, I have no point to continue creating troubles in your life. If I really wanted that, I would do it long time ago!

Everything will be done in a fair manner!

One more thing… Don’t get caught in similar kind of situations anymore in future!
My advice – keep changing all your passwords on a frequent basis

Mis cachorros

“Mis cachorros”. My puppies. That’s how my dad called us when we were little.

Some of my favorite memories of him was of watching TV with him in bed, him shirtless, belly down and us little and getting all over him. We all (well, my dad, my brother and I) liked those old b&w historical movies – Bible tales, Greek myths, medieval fantasies, all of them combined (I swear there were movies that included both Hercules and Samson).

My kids refuse to watch anything that’s b&w, they would recoil at movies like this. Maybe I can find them and force Mike to watch them with me.
