"There are Palestinians in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya who are also stuck, unable to move to another country, as if this earth is too small for us."

— Adham Mawed - Victim of Israeli Displacement (the most PC word for it) stuck between Syria and Lebanon, due to the Zionist War in Syria.

Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.

The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).

Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos.

Stocks rise for Israeli drone-maker as Gaza slaughter continues

THIS is what capitalism looks like.  It makes innocent people into test subjects, and pays the media to sell us this reality.

As Israel ruthlessly destroys the besieged Gaza Strip, its largest developer of military technology, Elbit Systems, is benefitting from the bloodshed.

US-traded shares of Elbit have climbed 6.1 percent since 8 July, when Israel began its latest offensive against the Gaza Strip. 

According to Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Israel’s three-week long massacre of 1,200 Palestinians in Gaza, including nearly 300 children, “has pushed [Elbit’s] stock close to the highest level since 2010 while its valuation on a price-to-earnings basis is near the most expensive in five years.” 

The rising stock is driven by speculation that the Haifa-based company will see increasing demand for its products from both the Israeli and foreign governments impressed by the performance of Elbit’s blood-soaked performance in Gaza.

Robert Fisk: Eight hundred (at time of print) dead Palestinians. But Israel has impunity (Independent)

Lets remember that the Palestinian death toll has now virtually DOUBLED… but our ability to process this proportionality has not changed.

Emphasis mine.

Note: Fisk writes with a certain orientalism and “we are the West” tone that can be disconcerting, but is one of the best versed, most centrist academically accurate reporters in the Middle East.

THIS sums up the impact of this insane Israeli escalation on “both sides of the conflict,” as the zionist media like to say…..
