My father received monthly payments of laundered money from Georgia...

I work for a company headquartered in Georgia. My father loaned me some money that I am paying back. I am using money I earned from my job.

I want to emphasize that my father is not in fact doing Georgia any secret favors...

Repubs are going crazy about Joe loaning his son money for a truck...

They seem to think the $1300 monthly payments were a bribe.

Wonder what they think China was getting for their pittance?

Israel found an intact hamas facility under a hospital.

Not a surprise, considering hamas has no apparent moral limitations.

However, this is evidence that a policy of bombing civilian buildings isn't necessary, if hamas will just abandon its underground facilities like this.

Why does Israel destroy the family homes of Arab criminals

But not Jewish criminals?

So yeah, Israel is about to destroy the family home

Of a 16 year old who committed murder, thereby punishing the whole family for what the kid did. I wonder why Palestinians don't like Israel?

Likud party officially opposes Palestinian statehood...

Lots of concern about the continued existence of Israel here, but keep in mind that the dominant party in Israel doesn't think Palestine should exist at all.

Likud also wants to rule from the river to the sea.

To all the folks gloating about gazans not having a functioning

Civil government...

Lots of comments about how gazans ruined their Water supply by electing hamas, some commenters even joking about the (life- threatening) lack of potable Water.

Hamas was elected with only like 44% of the vote and hasn't allowed any further elections. Of course, none of that vote total includes the 900k children in gaza.

Taliban numbers 2001-2021

Just a heads up for proponents of invasion to solve terrorism.

According to Wikipedia, there were 45k taliban in 2001 and 75k taliban in 2021.
