A few brief new Gaza-Israel notes

Credit where Credit is due to Elon Musk IF he follows through on his promise. Last Saturday, Musk said he would extend Starlink connectivity to Internationally Recognized aid organizations in Gaza. To #BlueAnon who say "But what about Crimea?" I pre-emptively say FUCK OFF.  That said, the "internationally recognized" gives Elmo all sorts of outs.

Turkish President Reçip Erdogan threatened on Sunday to send Turkish troops to Gaza to fight Israel. A mix of thoughts here, with this overall appearing to be good, bad and ugly. The good? This is in theory a "tripwire" on Israel that the US won't establish while it continues to largely write blank checks to the Israeli government. The bad? What I just said, in reality rather than theory. The ugly? If Israel doesn't respect the tripwire, Erdogan is out on some sort of limb domestically, and will do something, in all likelihood, even if not sending a bunch of ground troops. And, if any "advisors" get killed, the heat in Ankara increases. We could have a mix of a giant game of "chicken" with other games.

Reminder: Any claims you hear about Khaled Mashal or other Hamas founders being billionaires is nothing other than Israeli hasbara, which has been amplified by the "telephone" game or similar since first being pronounced.

The "global South" thinks Warmonger Joe is an even bigger hypocrite by far on this issue than on Russia-Ukraine. And, contra Mr. Dorsey, I don't think Mike Johnson as Speaker constrains Biden's options that much more than would be the case if Kevin McCarthy were still in charge.

#GenocideBibi claims that calls for a cease-fire are really calls for Israel to surrender.
