US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Tuesday that a “revitalized” Palestinian Authority should retake control of Gaza if Israel succeeds in its goal of toppling Hamas, but that regional partners and international agencies could play an interim role. The comments by Blinken during testimony before the Senate Appropriations Committee marked the first time the Biden administration has publicly declared its desire for the PA to return to the Gaza Strip, after privately raising the idea with regional partners since the outbreak of the Israel-Hamas war. “At some point, what would make the most sense would be for an


Blinken is cowardly and intellectually he finds himself out to sea, swimming far beyond his depth.

comrade Secretary blinking is assisting the Arab world in dissecting and eradicating the State of Israel from its very existence and should be called out on it and summarily discharged from the position he assumed - it's obvious he's taking orders from comrade obama and the other top tier bidenistas as most of the administration people have been doing since 2020

Sounds like a great plan if your plan is to destroy Israel. Try and convince me this entire administration isn't this inept on purpose. There is absolutely no one in this administration who seems to know how to do the job for which they were picked to perform. This isn't a coincidence. This was done on purpose.

Gaza once belonged to Israel and they should keep it as "reparations" for what they have suffered at the hands of thesse devils. Hopefully there are not enough Palestinians left after this war to fill a homeless camp somewhere in the desert. Blinken is a jackass just like his boss.

When I saw the headline..."revitalized’ PA should govern Gaza..." I thought Pennsylvania and Fetterman and Casey and Philadelphia and Scranton and Cornpop and let's go Brandon and how could that possibly be an improvement? But then, as I read the article I realized they meant those sophisticated, enlightened, "men about town " Palestinian Authority guys and thought that would be a step up from Pennsylvania.

Um what about letting the Gazans vote? Yes they did vote Hamas in last time but if the voting had gone on they would have voted them back out. We should support elections and announce we intend to hang one by one any government that cancels the election or cheats. Gaza should vote.

11, having people who have no history or understanding of freedom and health government vote is going to result in a Hamas clone coming into power. When we defeated Japan, first we essentially rebuilt their society. And then later they voted.

No, Israel needs to occupy Gaza. The people of Palestine can't be trusted to not keep harassing and killing Jews in Israel. They had the opportunity to have a sovereign country and at peace with Israel and they chose to be murders and rapists. No way!

One more example that proves Blinkie is either a Hamas sympathizer or has been bought by them. Either way he's a force for EVIL, and should be removed ASAP. I say issue him a Mandatory One-Way Ticket to Gaza or Iran, send him to go live with his buddies.

This all about keeping the status quo. That’s how the US & Global Deep State make money. A little bit of war, a few thousand casualties, a lot of posturing about peace and negotiations, a few false flags to keep the masses frightened and disengaged, and voila!, the Masters of the Universe can keep the cash rolling in forever.

Fonseca watched Kitara Ravache, who wore a red bejeweled dress.

Rescue helicopters and boats evacuated 23 crew members from the Panamanian-registered ship. Officials have said there are 'many' wounded.

Today’s cars are without doubt among the most highly evolved, reliable, innovative and efficient forms of production ever witnessed. Exactly the prime target you would expect from the Biden administration. The EPA has announced planned emission regulations that will end the U.S. automotive industry as we know it, while simultaneously forcing Americans into EV cars they manifestly do not want. The proposed regulations are being called “the single most important regulatory initiative
