Gaza: a Pause Before the Storm

• By Pepe Escobar

While the world cries "Israeli genocide," the Biden White House is gushing over the upcoming Gaza truce it helped broker, as though it's actually "on the verge" of its "biggest diplomatic victory."

Behind the self-congratulatory narratives, the US administration is not remotely "wary about Netanyahu's endgame," it fully endorses it – genocide included – as agreed at the White House less than three weeks before Al-Aqsa Flood, in a 20 September meeting between Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu and Joe "The Mummy" Biden's handlers.

The US/Qatar-brokered "truce," which is supposed to go into effect this week, is not a ceasefire. It is a PR move to soften Israel's genocide and boost its morale by securing the release of a few dozen captives. Moreover, the record shows that Israel never respects ceasefires.
