Our Wednesday News Analysis | ISRAEL’S LONG-HELD PLAN TO DRIVE GAZA’S PEOPLE INTO SINAI IS NOW WITHIN REACH
By Jonathan Cook

As the UK and US back Israel’s aggression against Palestinians, including an imminent ground invasion of Gaza, are they also about to assist Israel’s ethnic cleansing proposal for a “Greater Gaza” - in Egypt

The aim appears to be to squeeze Palestinians into the tiny space of Gaza’s south, next to the border with Sinai, destroy all civilian infrastructure, and bomb and terrorize, Palestinians in the south, too.
As Israel masses its forces along the fence encaging Gaza, waiting for a green light from the United States for a ground invasion, the question few are asking is: What is the ultimate endgame for Israel?
Instead, British and US politicians, backed by their media, have limited themselves to amplifying Israel’s bogus rationales for indiscriminately bombing men, women and children in the tiny coastal enclave and preparing to send in troops. Only 80 or so British MPs, out of 650, have so far called for a ceasefire.
Israeli strikes are known to have killed more than 7,000 Palestinians, nearly half of them children, with many times that number seriously injured. They are being treated in hospitals without medicines or electricity. The United Nations estimates at least 600,000 Palestinians are homeless from the bombing...

Western leaders have a stark choice to make. They can be complicit in another Nakba, or push for a genuine political process that includes the Palestinian people

"Killing thousands of young children will not create peace for Israel. The choice today is stark. It’s either genocide, ethnic cleansing, and another Nakba, or a genuine political process that takes into account the legitimate demands and aspirations of the Palestinian people."
Twenty days into Israel’s bombardment of Gaza, thousands of people have been killed, with the death toll climbing each hour - and still, the West remains silent.
But I have never witnessed a war like this. Despite the fear, trauma and shock of the 7 October Hamas attack, Israel has crossed many red lines in its disproportionate response.
The country has entered a genocidal state of mind - and it will be hard to go back.
In a recent interview with Al Jazeera, former Knesset member Moshe Feiglin said the only solution is the “complete destruction of Gaza … destruction like in Dresden and Hiroshima, without a nuclear weapon”...

One strand of evangelical theology holds that the return of Jews to the region starts the clock ticking on a seven-year armageddon, after which Jesus Christ will return

It didn’t take long for many evangelical Christian groups in America to show their support for Israel.
Editor’s Note | God Loves Israel-Palestine!
If false myths tempt one in our times, those who believe in make-believe have no eye for the living riches and the hope hidden in creation, the wonderful gift of divine providence for all humanity.”
When it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian Quest to Co-Exist, try separating the theology – the three Abrahamic Faiths, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam – from the geopolitics!
Impossible! It’s a double-edged sword.
On one side, a volatile cocktail fuels the fire that enflames the defining feud in our times.
On the other lies the prophetic ideals, carved in stone of an ancient faith, proposing but not imposing the truth, the way, the blessings, of living side by side, our only hope.
The New Testament ‘in-gathers’ and redeems ALL people, not just one tribe; ALL the nations, not just one state; indeed, glorifying the ONE ‘I Am’ with Many Names – in Hebrew: Hayah asher hayah, ‘I Will Be Who or How or Where I Will Be’ or just Eloah; or, in the Arabic sound-alike, Allah.
Our New Covenant 1) frees Modern Jews from their Jews-only, ancestry-ghetto- mentality; 2) renounces Modern Israel's obsession for possession of a Land once promised and fulfilled; and 3) refutes the Israeli edict: "What is mine is mine, what is yours is mine also."
Many indigenous Palestinians are more heritably linked to the Ancient Israelites than most European Jews who have wandered into the Region, seeking refuge from 1,900 years of European persecution, especially after World War II. Historically, many Jews in the Diaspora descend from pagan converts to Judaism.
Will a shared identity prompt the ‘cousins’ to share the land? Is there another choice?
Hours after Hamas attacked the country on 7 October, killing more than 1,400 people, Christians United for Israel, an evangelical lobbying group which claims to have more than 10 million members, posted a message on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“To the terrorists who have chosen this fight, hear this, what you do to Israel, god will do to you. Despite today’s weeping, joy will come because he [god] who watches over Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps,” CUFI, whose founder believes the presence of Jews in Israel is a precursor to Jesus Christ returning to Earth, wrote.''...
