Late on Sunday night, the Israeli Air Force launched dozens of airstrikes against targets in the Gaza Strip – as many as 50, according to an official source – after a single rocket had struck Sderot earlier in the day, causing no damage or injuries.
The airstrikes, which primarily struck sites used by Hamas’s al-Qassam Brigades (AQB), constituted, in the words of one analyst, a “deliberate escalation” by Israeli authorities.
Six days ago I put up a post concerning comments by US military officer Scott Bennett in an interview with Press TV. Bennett told the Press TV interviewer that the Obama administration may try to trigger a confrontation with Russia in Ukraine in order to boost Hillary Clinton’s election chances in November.
Middle East Rising
When McKinney, TX police officer David Eric Casebolt brutally took down a teenage girl at a pool party in June, he was using a form of martial arts called Krav Maga in which he trained exclusively. These combat techniques were developed by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
Alleged Dallas shooter Micah Johnson
[Ed. note – The alleged sniper in the Dallas terror attack has been conveniently killed by a robot. Well, at least they didn’t bury him at sea, “according to Islamic tradition.” As Scott Creighton puts it, the story is presently “morphing.” Seems like false flag attacks have a habit of doing that. ]
Multiple Snipers Becoming One Dead ‘Lone Gunman’….Carpenter (Patsy?) Micah Johnson

Gone like hobos in Dallas, like Dancing Israelis in New York, like the three tall white guys in San Bernadino, like the extra shooters in Orlando…
What’s really frightening is that after all the witnesses saying there were at least two shooter positions located high above downtown Dallas and the fact that they have 3 more suspects in custody, reportedly arrested in possession of rifles, they are now starting to seed the public with the idea that Johnson acted … alone.
[ Ed. note – The following article was written by Chuck Carlson of We Hold These Truths. WHHT is a Christian organization that normally focuses on Middle East issues and which has notably expressed strong opposition to Christian Zionism in the past. However, in the article below, Carlson delves into economics in manner that has raised some eyebrows, and when you read it you will see why.
[Ed. note – In a recent post I wrote the following:
Should Hillary Clinton win the presidency, I suspect a war with Russia will become a foregone conclusion. Hillary’s comparison of Putin to Hitler is not the only reason I say this. Her personality is the other reason.
Mrs. Clinton strikes me as someone who could easily be manipulated by the Zionists in the State Department, much more so than Donald Trump. The latter, for all his shameless pandering to AIPAC, is probably less likely to be finagled or cajoled into a war with Russia than Clinton. “America is a thing you can move very easily.” So said Benjamin Netanyahu famously in 2001. A Hillary Clinton presidency, should such come to pass, could well see those words borne out more precariously and dangerously than under any previous predecessor in the White House.
