Europe
Israel reprimands Belgium again for inviting terror-related NGO to UNSC
[Jpost] The Foreign Ministry also criticized the Belgian government’s "negligence" in handling the Carnival in Aalst, during which antisemitic floats were displayed in a parade.

The Foreign Ministry summoned Belgium’s Deputy Ambassador Pascal Buffin to Jerusalem for the second time in a week on Tuesday, to protest his country’s invitation to an anti-Israel NGO with ties to the terrorist group the Popular Front for the Liberation of Paleostine (PFLP) to address the UN Security Council.

Anna Azari, the head of the Europe
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
an Section of the Foreign Ministry, reprimanded Buffin and called on Belgium to rescind the invitation and stop taking anti-Israel steps in the UNSC.

Azari also expressed surprise that Israeli Ambassador to Belgium Emmanual Nahshon was reprimanded by the Belgian Foreign Ministry because of news reports about Israel’s criticism of Belgium.

"The Belgians cannot expect us to stay quiet when they are taking advantage of being temporary presidents of the UNSC to hurt Israel," she said.

DCI-P calls itself an organization defending the human rights
...which are often intentionally defined so widely as to be meaningless...
of Paleostinian children. It alleges that Israel is committing war crimes and it supports the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement. It shares several leading figures with the PFLP, a designated terrorist group in the US, EU, Canada and Israel, to the extent that Citibank and the Arab Bank have stopped providing banking services to the NGO.

Parker is the driving force behind pro-BDS legislation introduced in the US by Rep. Betty McCollum (D-Minnesota), the think tank NGO Monitor reported. Last January, in his capacity as an adjunct professor at the CUNY Law School’s Human Rights and Gender Justice Clinic, Parker filed an anti-Israel submission to the UN, replete with false statements and whitewashing of terrorist groups like Hamas, always the voice of sweet reason,. CUNY subsequently launched an investigation into the law school’s partnership with DCI-P.

Azari also criticized the Belgian government’s "negligence" in handling the Carnival in Aalst, during which antisemitic floats were displayed in a parade. The carnival is set for the day before the UNSC meeting.

She said Israel expects Belgium’s leadership to "clearly condemn the antisemitic event."

The Aalst carnival lost its place on UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in late 2019 after the Belgian city's mayor refused to remove antisemitic imagery from the parade.

Last year, one of its floats featured oversized figures of Jews in hassidic garb, with rats on their shoulders, holding money. In 2013, JTA reported, carnival revelers in Nazi uniforms held canisters labeled "Zyklon B" while walking with other participants dressed as concentration camp prisoners.

Five Americans accused of scheming to sell Iranian oil to China
[IsraelTimes] Four Texans and New Yorker violated US sanctions as part of plan that could have netted them $28 million per month, Justice Department says.

Five men have been arrested and charged with trying to trade in Iranian oil in violation of US trade sanctions.

In a statement issued Tuesday, the US Attorney’s Office in Philadelphia charged the five with conspiracy and violating US economic sanctions on Iran.

They were named as Zhenyu Wang, Robert Thwaites and Nicholas James Fuchs, all of Dallas; Daniel Ray Lane of McKinney, Texas; and Nicholas Hovan of New York City.

The criminal complaint alleges that since last July, the five had tried to buy oil illegally from Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan, the abbreviation IRGC is a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
to sell to a refinery in China. The complaint alleges that they planned to make two shipments of oil per month with an expected profit of $28 million per month.

US Attorney William McSwain said in a statement that the sanctions violations would jeopardize US security.

"At the same time the United States was increasing its sanctions in order to pressure Iran to stop its malign activities, these defendants put greed ahead of country," Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers said in a statement.

If convicted, each of the men could be sentenced to up to 25 years in federal prison and fined up to $1.25 million.

It was unclear from federal records where the five were being detained or if they had attorneys to speak for them. A message to a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney was not immediately returned.

India-Pakistan
Lahore ATC to announce verdicts on six cases against Hafiz Saeed, others by end of week
[DAWN] A Lahore anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Tuesday accepted a plea seeking the simultaneous hearing and verdict of six cases against the chief of the proscribed organization Jamaat-ud-Dawa
...the front organization of Lashkar-e-Taiba...
(JuD), Hafiz Saeed
...founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba and its false-mustache offshoot Jamaat-ud-Dawa. The United Nations declared the JuD a terrorist organization in 2008 and Hafiz Saeed a terrorist as its leader. Hafiz, JuD and LeT are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Pak intel apparatus, so that amounted to squat. He is periodically placed under house arrest so it looks like the govt is doing something. Once the heat is off they let him go....
, and his associates.

Deputy Prosecutor General Abdul Rauf Wattoo told DawnNewsTV that in total six cases against the said individuals were pending before the same court, adding that in four of these cases presentation of evidence was in progress.

Wattoo said hearing of all four remaining cases will be concluded simultaneously at the end of the week, which is when the court will issue its verdicts. The court has already reserved its verdicts in two of the cases. The reserved verdicts, which relate to terror financing cases, will also be announced with those on other cases at the end of the week, he added.

On Saturday, the ATC had delayed announcing its verdict in the terror financing cases and had decided to hear arguments on February 11 (today) on the defendants' application to hear all cases first before announcing the verdict. The application, filed by the suspects' counsel, demands that collective verdicts be issued after the completion of trials in all the cases pending against them.

World Bank to invest $117 million in water for the Gaza Strip
[Jpost] The project is intended to clean up the water supply in the Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return.

Strip as those have been contaminated by untreated sewage.


The World Bank announced on Monday that it will grant US$15 million for a water desalination program for the Gaza Strip.

The new project was founded with the aim of improving the quality and quantity of water in Gaza, and will have additional funds of US$42 million from other donors. Another US$60 million will be handed over by the Kuwait fund for Arab Economic development.

"The Gaza ground water aquifer is rapidly deteriorating in both quantity and quality with 97% of the available water undrinkable for the rapidly growing population in the Gaza Strip, said Kanthan Shankar, World Bank Country Director for West Bank and Gaza.

"Furthermore, there has been a downward trend in average rainfall by 20-30% over the last five years," he added. "Hence we are embarking on this much-needed and coordinated effort with our donor partners to increase and provide a more stable supply of safe water to Gazook families."

The project is intended to help clean up the water in the Gaza Strip as much of it has been contaminated by untreated sewage, as well as high salinity from seawater following a lowering of the groundwater level due to over-pumping the coastal aquifer.

The Associated Works project is part of a bigger donor-funded Gaza Central Desalination Program which will cover all of Gaza. It aims to construct a plant with the initial capacity to produce 55 MCM per year. Meanwhile,
...back at the buffalo wallow, Yellow Wolf clutched at his chest and fell from his horse...
other measures will be taken to ensure that the need for fresh water in the Gaza Strip is met.

The international community supported the construction of short-term desalination plants.

The Associated Works project will construct a south water carrier, including storage reservoirs to convey and properly blend desalinated water along with water purchased from Mekorot (the Israeli national water company) and groundwater sources.

"Almost everyone in Gaza is relying on water from expensive and unregulated small-scale private providers. The project will not only improve the quality of life of about 870,000 people and provide water security, it will allow substantial cost savings for households in this fragile and conflict-affected environment," said Suhail J. S. Jme'an, World Bank Sector Leader for Sustainable Development.

All of these will help strengthen the capacity of water institutions in Gaza, as well as make way for the future establishment of a small unit to manage bulk water supply in Gaza, and a future National Water Company.

US envoy explains deal’s asymmetry: We trust Israel, but PA can’t keep a bargain
[IsraelTimes] Why does Trump’s plan allow the Israelis to annex soon but have a Paleostinian state only arise in four years? To ’bridge the asymmetry’ between the two sides, David Friedman says.
Natural consequences built in? Wow.
The White House’s so-called "Deal of the Century" strongly favors Israel because it is a democracy that can be relied upon to uphold any agreement, whereas the Paleostinians have a long way to go before they are trustworthy partners, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said Sunday.

Strip.

Hamas, a regional Iranian catspaw, has decided to stop launching incendiary balloons into Israeli territory, according to the al-Quds newspaper and reported by Ynet.
Islamic Jihad also agreed to stop launching balloons into Israel, Walla! reported.

According to the report, the decision was made on Monday night after a meeting with the Egyptian intelligence delegation and communicated in the morning to all balloon launching units. For its part, Israel promised to ease restrictions on importing and exporting to and from the Gaza Strip, although no details on the matter were provided.

During the meeting, the Egyptians told Hamas to avoid supporting any militias that harm the region and expressed reservations about the relationship between Hamas, Iran

and the Hezbollah terrorist group. Hamas was also warned against becoming involved with Iran in any military escalation.

According to al-Arabiya, the delegation told Israel that they are working on a long-term armistice, but asked Israel to abide by the current ceasefire without any preconditions.

However,
there's no worse danger than telling a mother her baby is ugly...
a bundle of incendiary balloons with a suspicious object attached was found in the Sdot Negev Regional Council on Tuesday morning, and another balloon landed in the city of Ashkelon later on Tuesday.

Hamas: All music must be about hating Israel or else it is haram
[GatestoneInstitute] ... members of the Sol Band have received threats from people close to Hamas and its government in the Gaza Strip. "The security services affiliated with Hamas investigated the father of the band's founder, Said Fadel," SKeyes said in a statement, adding that all members of the band have received threats from some extremists. Another member of the band told the center that "it's difficult for us to return to the Gaza Strip after the threats and fatwa that prohibits our work."...

The campaign of incitement against Sol Band did not surprise many Palestinians, particularly those living in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. The only songs Hamas and its followers want are those that promote hate and violence.

One Hamas song, released in 2017, is titled "Zionist, You Will Perish in Gaza."

Another Hamas song threatens to eat Jews alive. "I will eat you alive, tastes best without salt, Zionist – Yes, yes, you." The lyrics and rhythmic beat are accompanied by animation, in which rockets are being fired from the Gaza Strip towards Israel...
