Wakeful Video Weekend 2021-05-16 (14 videos)

Summary: Many of this week’s videos struck me as meager. The ones I am sharing I have therefore split in three groups – top (4), medium (3), and OK (7).

Israel: One of the reasons for poor videos this week may be the spike of Israel war crimes addressed by everyone in mass and alternative media. I prefer not to waste time on those events because the fact that Israel is a Neo-Nazi Regime created by a tiny percentage of Jewish Holocaust survivors to conquer foreign land and treat their closest relatives on Earth (Palestinians, the other branch of descendants of their mid-eastern ancestors (this is merely my personal guess, I admit)) the same way thievish and murderous Nazi fascists had treated them (or some far away close or remote relatives). There is nothing new to this and the disgusting mistreatment of Palestinians (slaying, disenfranchising, and throwing them out from their own land) by Israel, nor the ignoring of these crimes by all other countries’ governments. *sigh* – Not new enough for me to waste time on, unless a decent solution were on the horizon. Mostly because human suffering has become rampant globally by now, and we must all learn to clean our own doorstep (the corrupt politics and economy of our own countries) to save ourselves and thereby finally gain the strength to save others. Being distracted with a focus on a small group of victims when most of us are now in big trouble, is – to me – just another distraction useful for our sociopathic oligarchic lords who don’t want our sick global system (and national sections of it) to be fixed. And let’s not overlook the much more huge genocides committed by the U.S. military complex, either. It’s possible that I missed an important new point, but the reason I didn’t look into these news (having very limited time struggling to survive myself) is hopefully understandable. I did eventually glance into the Israel war crimes videos and came across two quite sharable ones (shared below). — If you want to look deeper into how to oppose Zionism effectively, read this article by John Spritzler: LISTEN ANTI-ZIONIST!
