  • IDF lookouts warned their commanders about activity along the Gaza border, according to reports.
  • They were ignored, told to stop bothering them, and even threatened, N12 reported.
  • One lookout said they were told they would be “court-martialed.”

IDF lookouts expressed concern about activity along the Gaza boarder long before the October 7 terrorist attacks, according to reports.

The lookouts were telling their commanders they were witnessing unusual activity along the border for months, but they were ignored, told to stop bothering them, and even threatened, The Jerusalem Post reported via Israeli news station N12.

Some of the activity the lookouts witnessed included unusual training protocols and more people lingering near the fence, per the outlet.

One lookout informed their senior commander, the report said, but was rebuffed.

“I don’t want to hear again about this nonsense,” they reported being told. “If you all bother us again with these things, you’ll be court-martialed.”

Previous reports stated commanders told their lookouts Hamas were “just a bunch of punks” who wouldn’t “do anything” when they reported what they had seen.

“A day before everything happened, I saw people with maps,” one lookout told N12, per J Post. “They were looking at the fence and pointing at it. I told everyone: ‘Listen, something is going to happen. I see them planning things.’ I noticed that something was different on the front. I even told the person next to me in jest: ‘Listen, they’re going to storm our post.’ It just looked different.”

Other lookouts reported seeing the same drills over and over: shooting, laying on the ground, then throwing grenades.

“In the end, that’s what happened to me,” they said. “They shot at me, threw grenades at me.”

N12 also reported the lookouts who were present on October 7 were not receiving any psychological assistance from the army and were even told they would be transferred if they didn’t return to service within two weeks.

In response, the military told the outlet that soldiers were accompanied “closely and sensitively” by mental health professionals.

“Their return to duty will be accompanied gradually, sensitively, and according to each one’s condition,” the spokesperson said. “There is no intention of taking disciplinary measures against them. If there were conversations that reflect otherwise, then they are against the guidelines and will be handled accordingly.”

“We don’t have any family in the business, and we kind of need a path for succession.”

Hikmet Hajiyev – assistant for the foreign policy of the president of Azerbaijan in his interview with euroreporter.co said that Azerbaijan wants regional security, according to Azerbaijan in Focus, reporting Turan.

“We want to build a new regional security architecture based on justice, recognizing each other’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, and ending all territorial claims.

First, peace and regional security are not in Brussels, Paris, Washington, or anywhere. Peace is in the region.”

Some in the European Parliament feel Azerbaijanophobia or Islamophobia toward Azerbaijan. The European Council recently made a statement criticizing Azerbaijan, which we find unnecessary. European institutions never treated Azerbaijan fairly while its territory was occupied, he added.

”For years, there was one approach toward separatist entities in Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine, but another against Azerbaijan.”

He added that “some EU member countries, like France, have started a militarisation program in Armenia.”

He noted that France is sending Armenia missile-capable military armed personnel carriers.

“We consistently warned member states like France not to support separatism in Azerbaijan’s territory. Second, don’t promote Armenian revanchism or geopolitical games in our region. Unfortunately, this is true.”

“We think that this is a historical opportunity and a historical momentum and that appropriate European institutions should also be part of the solution, not the problem, to advance a peaceful agenda in the region”, – he concluded.

In a statement made on November 18 during the autumn session of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly in Yerevan, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan revealed that Armenia and Azerbaijan have reached a consensus on the fundamental principles of a peace agreement, according to Azerbaijan in Focus, reporting Turan. Pashinyan acknowledged both positive and negative developments in the Armenian-Azerbaijani peace process.

On a positive note, he disclosed that the two nations have agreed on key peace principles, thanks in part to the mediation efforts of European Council head Charles Michel and Pashinyan’s meetings with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in Brussels. According to Pashinyan, the first principle involves mutual recognition of territorial integrity, specifying Armenia’s territory as 29.8 thousand square kilometers and Azerbaijan’s as 86.6 thousand square kilometers. The second principle is rooted in the 1991 Alma-Ata Declaration, serving as the political foundation for border delineation between Armenia and Azerbaijan, based on maps from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the former USSR from 1974 to 1990.

Pashinyan also emphasized the third principle, which focuses on the reopening of regional communications, guided by principles such as sovereignty, jurisdiction, reciprocity, and equality among the countries involved.

However, Pashinyan expressed concerns about the persisting challenge of communication between the two nations due to differing diplomatic approaches and a history of conflict, casualties, prisoners, longstanding animosity, and suspicions of hidden agendas. He noted that these challenges apply to both Armenia and Azerbaijan to varying degrees.

The Best of Wagner

posted at 06:24:21 UTC via youtube.com

Wilhelm Richard Wagner (22 May 1813 – 13 February 1883) was a German composer, theatre director, polemicist, and conductor who is chiefly known for his operas (or, as some of his later works were later known, “music dramas”). Unlike most opera composers, Wagner wrote both the libretto and the music for each of his stage works. Initially establishing his reputation as a composer of works in the romantic vein of Carl Maria von Weber and Giacomo Meyerbeer, Wagner revolutionised opera through his concept of the Gesamtkunstwerk (“total work of art”), by which he sought to synthesise the poetic, visual, musical and dramatic arts, with music subsidiary to drama. He described this vision in a series of essays published between 1849 and 1852. Wagner realised these ideas most fully in the first half of the four-opera cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung).

His compositions, particularly those of his later period, are notable for their complex textures, rich harmonies and orchestration, and the elaborate use of leitmotifs—musical phrases associated with individual characters, places, ideas, or plot elements. His advances in musical language, such as extreme chromaticism and quickly shifting tonal centres, greatly influenced the development of classical music. His Tristan und Isolde is sometimes described as marking the start of modern music.

Wagner had his own opera house built, the Bayreuth Festspielhaus, which embodied many novel design features. The Ring and Parsifal were premiered here and his most important stage works continue to be performed at the annual Bayreuth Festival, run by his descendants. His thoughts on the relative contributions of music and drama in opera were to change again, and he reintroduced some traditional forms into his last few stage works, including Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (The Mastersingers of Nuremberg).

Until his final years, Wagner’s life was characterised by political exile, turbulent love affairs, poverty and repeated flight from his creditors. His controversial writings on music, drama and politics have attracted extensive comment, notably, since the late 20th century, where they express antisemitic sentiments. The effect of his ideas can be traced in many of the arts throughout the 20th century; his influence spread beyond composition into conducting, philosophy, literature, the visual arts and theatre.

Israel-Hamas War: Day 43 – What we know so far

posted on Nov 18 2023 20:22:41 UTC (updated on Sun Nov 19, 2023 11:09) by The Sun via The Sun

The Sun gives the very latest update from Israel today, which marks the 43rd day since Hamas terrorists carried out an attack on Israeli civilians on October 7.

Today (18 November) Israel claims it has blown up a bomb factory used by a terrorist group in Gaza.

The IDF released shocking footage showing the enormous explosion tearing through a built-up area in the Strip.

IDF officials said the site was used by the extremist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) – a terrorist organisation based in Gaza which is distinct from Hamas.

It comes after the Israeli military said it had located more “Hamas terror tunnels” and had found information about the hostages.

Meanwhile, thousands of demonstrators marched in Jerusalem as they demanded the release of hostages held in Gaza.

Protesters walked for hours along Highway 1 and released yellow balloons.

The five-day march was expected to culminate in a rally in front of the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

About 240 hostages were taken by Hamas terrorists when they stormed into southern Israel on Oct. 7.
