End of WeDG

Hi all,
Due to well over two years of a clear lack of interest in this board, I will be closing it when the hosting is up next month (24 Aug). I see no reason to continue this with the lack of readership and participation.

It's been a wonderful 27+ years, with tons of ups and downs, but with all the excellent resources available to us online via Telegram, YouTube and other platforms - we've outgrown our purpose. I do not believe any huge modification/improvements to the site would help, plus that has always been way beyond my knowledge/skill set.

Y'all know how to reach me.

  • Blinken speaks with Abbas as US works to block UN resolution on Israeli settlements

    The Security Council resolution has placed the US in an uncomfortable position, as it too has spoken out aggressively against last Sunday’s decision by Israel to legalize nine outposts in the West Bank and advance plans for some 10,000 new settlement homes, the largest-ever package to be green-lit in one sitting.

    Additionally, the Biden administration has maintained that vetoes at the UN Security Council should be used sparingly and has been critical of Russia’s efforts to block consensus-backed initiatives over the past year. Vetoing this measure, which includes a condemnation of steps toward annexation by Israel — such as outpost legalizations, would put them at odds with countries it has asked to back UN resolutions against Russia for annexing Ukrainian lands.

    However, the US has also said the UN is not the correct forum for adjudicating the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and has been critical of member states’ disproportionate and sometimes biased approach on the issue.

    The Palestinian readout of the Saturday phone call said Abbas briefed Blinken on his office’s involvement in the Security Council initiative, which was drafted by the United Arab Emirates, the Arab League’s representative on the top UN panel.

    Syria says 5 killed, 15 wounded in Israeli strike on Damascus residential area | The Times of Israel


    This could be bad timing especially as it is coming across like there may have been a mistake involved????

    An alleged Israeli missile strike hit a building in the Kafr Sousa neighborhood of central Damascus early on Sunday, near a large security complex near Iranian military installations, witnesses and an official source told Reuters.

    Five people were killed, including a Syrian soldier, and 15 were wounded in the alleged attack, which a Syrian military source said came from the direction of the Golan Heights, Syrian state media outlet Sana claimed.

    The strike also caused the "destruction of a number of civilian homes, and material damage to a number of neighborhoods in and around Damascus," the military source added.

    The U.S. loves the UN[united nations] as long as it goes along with the U.S. When they differ, then "the UN is not the correct forum."

    Keep it up U.S. Your destruction (as we knew/know it) draweth nigh.

    Issachar
    The church is on Earth to save souls from a lost world, not to save the world from lost souls.

    Man learns about history, not from history. To learn from history requires wisdom. Cut off from God, he has none, so history repeats; no new thing under the sun.
