Israeli President Isaac Herzog lied about Shani Louk being "beheaded" by Hamas in order to prop up Israel's "Hamas is ISIS" propaganda campaign, The Intercept's Ryan Grim reports.

"We now know Herzog lied when he said Shani Louk was beheaded to buck up the 'Hamas is ISIS' campaign -- with utter disregard for the impact of that lie on her family and loved ones. Deeply cynical exploitation, done to justify what Herzog knew was coming."

Poland to Invest $2.5 Billion to Build Up Border Fortifications with Russia and Belarus MikeRivero

Poland is investing about $2.5 billion to step up security and deterrence on its border with Russia and its ally Belarus, the prime minister said Saturday.

Donald Tusk said work on the Shield-East project which includes building proper military fortifications has already begun. Poland is on the eastern flank of NATO and of the European Union and Tusk stressed it bears additional responsibility for Europe’s security.

“We have taken the decision to invest into our safety and first of all, into a safe eastern border, some 10 billion zlotys ($2.5 billion),” Tusk said.

What the Jews are doing right now in Gaza is the first actual, legitimate genocide, in that they are attempting to exterminate an entire race of people. Maybe this happened some time in ancient history, but nothing like this has happened in thousands of years.

Since the start of the Gaza war at least 20 ships have been damaged in the Red Sea amid the ongoing Houthi campaign to punish Israel and its international backers. The US-led Operation Prosperity Guardian is something which has retreated from headlines as it has by and large proved ineffective. 

US warships patrolling waters off Yemen have shot down dozens, or possibly even hundreds of drones and missiles at this point - while also at times carrying out offensive operations - but the Iran supported Houthis have remained undeterred.
