When South Africa practised segregation in the 80s and 90s, everybody hated them. When Israel does it, they get millions of dollars from the US for segregated classes and to blow up Palestinians. Israel seems to get away with everything. https://youtu.be/2UQAEp9NNFE

A Venezuelan Su-30 fighter “aggressively shadowed” an American spy plane over the Caribbean Sea, the US military said, claiming the jet was at an “unsafe distance” and blaming Russia for its “irresponsible” support for Caracas. Footage of the Russian-made Su-30 aircraft approaching a US EP-3 reconnaissance plane was released by the Southern Command on Saturday. The run-in itself took place on July 19, according to the US military. The actions of the Venezuelan plane were “jeopardizing” to the US aircraft and its crew, Southern Command said, claiming it was at an “unsafe distance.” The Su-30 does not seem to have any visible weaponry, however, planes of the type usually come fitted with an internal autocannon. Since the Venezuelan plane was Russian-made, the US military did not hesitate to blame its favourite bogeyman – Moscow – for the incident. It is proof of “Russia’s irresponsible military support” for the Venezuelan government, as well as of President Nicolas Maduro’s undermining of “efforts to counter illicit trafficking,” the military said. https://www.rt.com/news/464702-us-military-venezuelan-jet/?fbclid=IwAR0ZF-IO4zAMl03E77zuBKKhZSxXiOaR_9SyRbC5bfQ-bOTfrMN_P3iGtFM

Turkey’s military is prepared to reinvade Cyprus “if needed for the lives and security of Turkish Cypriots,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday. “The entire world is watching our determination. No one should doubt that the heroic Turkish army, which sees [Northern] Cyprus as its homeland, will not hesitate to take the same step it took 45 years ago if needed for the lives and security of the Turkish Cypriots,” state-run Anadolu News Agency quoted Erdogan as saying. Erdogan issued the statement as the nation marks the 45th anniversary of Turkey’s deeply controversial invasion of northern Cyprus in 1974, long condemned by the bulk of UN member countries. But the provocative remarks come amidst what EU-member Cyprus has dubbed a “second invasion” involving illegal Turkish oil and gas drilling, accompanied by Turkish warships, F-16s, and drones to ensure “protection” of its drilling vessels. https://southfront.org/turkey-prepared-to-reinvade-cyprus-if-needed-erdogan-says-following-eu-sanctions/?fbclid=IwAR0ujJv-HL9zVxJREPhdEiZb756N_pNxX4wW-hJ6jIbl8UhAMizjV6k4rwM

The City of Takoma Park decided to reschedule, “Occupation of the American Mind,” on July 23rd following concern from a number of organizations and individuals that the documentary was anti-Israel. The film is narrated by Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters, an avid critic of Israel and a BDS supporter. While the film was scheduled to screen on Thursday in Takoma Park Community Center in Maryland, the community centre rescheduled the event amid backlash. A letter signed by Executive Director of JCRC Ronald Halber to the Mayor of Takoma Park expressed some of the community’s dismay that the screening had not been cancelled altogether. "It was Meredith’s understanding from her conversation with you that the film screening would be postponed perhaps until even next year and that you and members of the arts commission would engage in further conversations with our staff regarding strategies for presenting a more balanced approach to this difficult but important topic, that would not involve this film," the letter stated. "Since that conversation, we have not heard anything further from your office or the staff person for the arts commission. We are dismayed that we learned of this new plan only from your communications staff." "That is hardly the basis for a respectful and productive dialogue," the letter continued. "It is completely dismissive of Takoma Park’s many Jewish residents, and our national Jewish community who have already endured the dangerous escalation of anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence locally and nationwide over the last year." After the first-push to have the showing cancelled, the JCRC said in a statement, "“The very title and description of the film, asserting that pro-Israel groups are engaged in a propaganda campaign to control the American media and government, echoes sinister, age-old antisemitic tropes about Jews that of late are resurfacing with alarming regularity." https://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/DC-suburb-moves-forward-with-Roger-Waters-film-screening-on-Israeli-occupation-595301?fbclid=IwAR3M8Ap0Lcs1ILqgZjeQfkhK3_AhzBr_t2bRONFasxHr3rwNNtsslWaapDY
