Certainly not what it's cracked up to be all this UN stuff.

A UN transit body has sent lots of refugees to Rwanda- a country that they apparently said wasn't safe, and formed part of the reasoning behind the supreme court's findings.

I wonder how easy it is to manage such a big, dispersed organisation. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-67431602

 

It is true that the UNHCR, with financial support from the EU, has transferred refugees from Libya to Rwanda under a scheme called the Emergency Transit Mechanism (ETM).

However, the ETM is voluntary, not compulsory, like the UK's plan. The ETM offers vulnerable refugees, taken into detention by the Libyan authorities, a choice to have their application processed in Rwanda.

Libya - a major transit route for those hoping to reach Europe - is not considered a safe country for refugees.

People moved from Libya to Rwanda by the UNHCR are given assistance to resettle elsewhere should they choose to do so. It says that "as of March 2023, 932 refugees from the ETM centre have been resettled to Canada, Sweden, Norway, Finland, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and USA".

Seems that some Iran-backed militants have had a pop at the US military in Jordan. I can see some sharp, swift retaliation from the aircraft carrier sitting in the Med.

Just reading an article on it, which quotes a Jordanian source saying it was base over the border in Syria. 

3 dead, over 20 injured.

Certainly another headache incoming for a few militants.

And?

If it was so bad, the UN lot simply wouldn't allow it.

Did you not read the bit about it being voluntary, and any people transported there can choose to be relocated?

Can’t beat a conflict on foreign soil in the run up to an election.

Fair play to Starmer for a speedy suspension, but Labour is full of anti semitic filthIMG_3029.thumb.jpeg.d4a0c80b91bf03694d19e878988058aa.jpeg

Will anti-semites give all our money to Michelle Mone for aprons made of newspaper?

Let's hope it stays that way.

History says it won't, irrespective of party there are always some.

Of course they aren’t in the cabinet, they aren’t in government!

I’ll take that bet.

Time will tell if Gaza becomes acknowledged a genocide, which is generally accepted as

“In 1948, the United Nations Genocide Convention defined genocide as any of five "acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group". These five acts were: killing members of the group, causing them serious bodily or mental harm, imposing living conditions intended to destroy the group, preventing births, and forcibly transferring children out of the group. Victims are targeted because of their real or perceived membership of a group, not randomly.[1][2]

Well, if that makes Israel guilty, then it must also apply to Hamas, and maybe to other groups who vow to destroy the Jews. 

Absolutely 

Hamas are a terrorist organisation, you expect them to do vile things.

You don’t expect it from a liberal democracy.

The ICJ were clear that there was a plausible genocide case against Israel l. That doesn’t mean it will be labelled as such, but they’ve hardly thrown the case out.

 I’m a broken record i know, but if all Israel ever did was defend itself against Hamas, then there wouldn’t be a case. But they are regularly displacing innocent people, in areas where Hamas hold no power, under brutal circumstances. Now we know that the current government have do desire at all to see Palestinians have any rights under a two state solution.

Anybody who calls this out is just anti-Semitic filth though. Okay then 👍

If Hamas are faced with genocide, why have they turned down the latest ceasefire offer?

You should write to the ICJ mate

 I’m sure when they see this latest argument that they will throw the case right out and save themselves 2 years deliberating. 
 

Hamas don’t speak for all Palestinians 👍
