The situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question – Security Council, 9650th meeting [Length: The 70-minute meeting content starts @26:05 where this link begins]

Vote on Draft Resolution S/2024/448 submitted by the U.S. [JK: This is another “ceasefire” resolution]

Republic of [South] Korea presides and invites Israel to participate [the Observer State of Palestine is not invited]

Vote tally on draft resolution: 14 YES, 0 NO, 1 ABSTENTION (Russia) is approved as Resolution 2735 (2024) or S/RES/2735(2024)

Russia @01:28:23 [JK: Only adult in the room]

Israel @01:34:08 [JK: Ugh!]

[Note from JK: I was unable to find the text of this resolution at this point (the devil is in the details), but see this for more information. It doesn’t appear to me that this resolution will make any difference when it comes to Israel, and all this in light of the Israeli-U.S. “rescue” operation massacre in Gaza that embarked from the so-called floating U.S. aid pier that killed 274 Palestinians, injured 700 Palestinians and that rescued 4 Israeli hostages and killed 3 Israeli hostages and 1 American hostage (see the Richard Medhurst Item#3 below).]

[Note from JK: I can’t imagine Hamas agreeing to this. To me it is like another Oslo accords fake.]

Oral arguments in “Defense for Children International – Palestine v. Biden” [Length: 40-minutes at the beginning of the 3-hour court session]

Oral arguments were presented on June 10 at 9:00 a.m. PT before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Courtroom 1, 3rd Floor, James Browning Courthouse, San Francisco, CA 94103 in the 

Center for Constitutional Rights’ (CCR) historic lawsuit, Defense for Children International – Palestine v. Biden. Senior Staff Attorney Katherine Gallagher argued on behalf of the CCR clients.

From CCR: “The case was filed in November against President Biden, Secretary of State Blinken, and Secretary of Defense Austin and challenges their failure to prevent and complicity in Israel’s genocide against the Palestinian people in Gaza. The case asks the court to order the Biden administration to cease military support for Israel’s assault on Gaza and comply with its legal obligations.

“After a January hearing, the district court court found a plausible case of genocide and urged the Biden administration to reexamine its “unflagging support” for Israel’s siege of Gaza, but dismissed the lawsuit on jurisdictional grounds. Watch a video about the January hearing on our Youtube channel.”

[Note from JK: There was a spirited group of about 100 supporters outside the courtroom from 10:00-noon with speakers, including a report out from the CCR lawyers and plaintiffs, and street art activism.]

Saving Gaza Is About More Than Saving Gaza. It’s Also About Saving Ourselves.

Listen to a reading of this article (reading by Tim Foley): Saving Gaza is about more than saving Gaza. It’s also about saving ourselves. Saving ourselves as individuals. Saving ourselves as a society. Saving ourselves as a species. Saving ourselves from what we’ll become if we just watch this happening right in front of our…
