I was gobsmacked at the CBS news coverage of Palestinian protests over the embassy. Israel may as well just be called Skynet. All the footage was designed to make Israel look heartless and cold - helicopters dropping tear gas on slingshot wielding protesters.

Lots of shots of protesters decrying Trump, which is what the coverage was really all about.

HOLY CARP!!!
With all the coverage of the mess in Gaza, this little news item seems to have slipped by unnoticed.

Intel to invest another 5 billion here.

and weirdly, today was a very quiet day down there. Seems Egypt sent some quiet messages to hamas, time to reign it in. And presto, no riots. No one really buys the "spontaneous popular protest" gimmick, certainly not Arab governments who know the territory.

What a lady said at another forum I frequent:

The problem is some people want to kill jews
And the Jews don't want to be killed
and the two sides can't find any common ground


Thought that kinda summed it up...

On Tuesday, Twitter announced a massive change to the way its conversations will work, evaluating not just the content of individual tweets, but the way users behave more broadly on the service. Twitter will now use thousands of behavioral signals when filtering search, replies, and algorithmic recommendations. If it believes you are trying to game its system, or simply acting like a jerk, it will push your tweets lower down. It’s the biggest update so far in the company’s push to create healthier conversations, an initiative announced by its CEO Jack Dorsey in March.

However, a spokesperson for Twitter told the Media Research Center there is actually a different set of rules that applies to Hamas, covered under the policies for “[v]iolent extremist groups.”

While the Twitter spokesperson said she could not comment on specific accounts, the spokesperson directed the Media Research Center to this specific passage of the rules against violent extremist groups:
Quote:
 
Exceptions will be considered for groups that have reformed or are currently engaging in a peaceful resolution process, as well as groups with representatives elected to public office through democratic elections.

The exemption goes on to claim that the policy also “does not apply to military or government entities.”

Therefore, even though Hamas violates all of the determining factors Twitter uses when deciding whether a group is a violent extremist group, it is still able to be on Twitter because of its status as a democratically-elected government and its alleged commitments to peace.
