Report: Netanyahu took part in effort with US, Saudi Arabia to pressure Jordan

Washington Post says Israeli intelligence agencies told King Abdullah II they weren’t involved in alleged plot against him, appeared to suggest the PM was to blame

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was involved in efforts by the United States and Saudi Arabia to pressure Jordan’s King Abdullah II as part of the Trump administration’s promotion of its Middle East peace plan, the Washington Post reported Saturday.

The report described the efforts as having challenged Abdullah’s domestic political standing in recent years, culminating in the exposure in April of an alleged plot to “destabilize” Jordan that ensnared the king’s half-brother Prince Hamza and former senior officials Bassem Awadallah and Sharif Hassan bin Zaid.

Much of the pressure reportedly concerned Jerusalem, where Abdullah is recognized as the custodian of the Temple Mount and other Muslim sites in the Old City, which Israel captured from Jordan in the 1967 Six Day War. Israel recognized the Jordanian monarchy’s status as custodian in the 1994 peace agreement between the countries.

WASHINGTON — US President Joe Biden’s administration said Wednesday that Israel’s control of the West Bank is indeed “occupation,” clarifying its stance after the release of a report that seemed to downplay the term, adopting language used by Donald Trump’s government.

The State Department’s annual report on human rights “does use the term ‘occupation’ in the context of the current status of the West Bank,” State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters.

Israel’s political instability hampering tighter cooperation with US — experts

More than the potential election of a leader Biden is politically at odds with, it’s the continued uncertainty that stymies the US president’s ability to expand ties, analysts say

Ahead of last week’s elections in Israel, a senior US official was asked if Washington would prefer an extension of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rule or that a new lawmaker to replace the longtime leader.

The official, who spoke to The Times of Israel on condition of anonymity, went with the diplomatic answer, insisting US President Joe Biden would work well with whoever forms the next coalition.

Latest Chinese “gray zone” warfare plot to kill Americans involves large spike in shipments of tainted meat

by: JD Heyes

(Natural News) Most Americans are unaware that the Chinese Communist government is engaged in an unconventional “gray-zone” war against the United States that has, so far, resulted in close to one million Americans dead.

“The Gray Zone is characterized by intense political, economic, informational, and military competition more fervent in nature than normal steady-state diplomacy, yet short of conventional war. It is hardly new, however,” the National Defense University noted in a research paper published in January 2016. 

“The Cold War was a 45-year-long Gray Zone struggle in which the West succeeded in checking the spread of communism and ultimately witnessed the dissolution of the Soviet Union,” the paper continues. 

“To avoid superpower confrontations that might escalate to all-out nuclear war, the Cold War was largely a proxy war, with the United States and Soviet Union backing various state or nonstate actors in small regional conflicts and executing discrete superpower intervention and counter-intervention around the globe,” it adds.

New approach to vaccinessssss: Pythons from Florida Everglades could be used to help produce COVID shots, researcher says

  • A researcher and python hunter by the name of ‘The Wildman’ have joined forces to explore what they believe could be used to fight the coronavirus – and it is hiding in the Florida Everglades.

    Python hunter Dustin Crum and Daryl Thompson, a researcher, and entrepreneur with Global Research and Discovery Group out of Winter Haven, are looking to the invasive Burmese python to use its squalene, which stimulates a stronger immune response when added to vaccines.

    Squalene is a naturally occurring oil-like substance found in nature and is commercially extracted from fish oil, particularly from shark liver.

 However, extracting it from sharks has become a controversial topic among animal activists, but the Burmese python is wreaking havoc on the Everglades and wildlife officials are looking to remove the creature.

Crum also notes that one 10-foot snake has enough to make about 3,500 vaccine doses.

Although the World Health Organization deems squalene safe for vaccines, it is not on the Food and Drug Administration’s list of ingredients in the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.
