EnochWalked: "Biometric payment options are becoming more common in the U.S., such as Apple Face ID enabling app purchases, and Amazon's introduction of pay-by-palm technology in stores, and financial firms from JPMorgan to Mastercard embracing the technology." May 20, 2024 13:59:52 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.cnbc.com/2024/05/20/this-may-be-the-year-you-pay-with-your-face-as-biometrics-hit-tipping-point.html "With JPMorgan, Mastercard on board in biometric 'breakthrough' year, you may soon start paying with your face". What interesting timing... May 20, 2024 13:59:19 GMT -6
EnochWalked: "Spanish PM ... said ... that Madrid would only recognise a Palestinian state in a joint action with other countries." "also denied reports that the recognition would occur on May 21." The EU likes unanimity, but members can act multilaterally instead. May 20, 2024 8:42:09 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.reuters.com/world/middle-east/spain-recognise-palestinian-state-together-with-other-countries-2024-05-17/ "Spain to recognise Palestinian state together with other countries". It looks like a lot of countries were waiting for who would be first May 20, 2024 8:39:40 GMT -6
EnochWalked: 'The charges against Netanyahu and Gallant include “causing extermination, causing starvation as a method of war, including the denial of humanitarian relief supplies, deliberately targeting civilians in conflict,”'. So not "genocide", but still bad. May 20, 2024 6:03:30 GMT -6
EnochWalked: "The decision puts Netanyahu in the company of the Russian President Vladimir Putin, for whom the ICC issued an arrest warrant over Moscow’s war on Ukraine." This will make it hard for Netanyahu to travel, and give a boost to Gantz in elections. May 20, 2024 6:02:11 GMT -6
EnochWalked: edition.cnn.com/2024/05/20/middleeast/icc-israel-hamas-arrest-warrant-war-crimes-intl/index.html "ICC seeks arrest warrants against Sinwar and Netanyahu for war crimes over October 7 attack and Gaza war". Things are really accelerating. May 20, 2024 6:00:53 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.jewishpress.com/news/middle-east/saudi-arabia/saudi-arabias-king-salman-88-has-pneumonia/2024/05/19/ 'after experiencing a high fever and joint pain.' 'The Saudi monarch, 88, will undergo antibiotic treatment for the “lung inflammation,”' May 19, 2024 22:43:52 GMT -6
EnochWalked: The narrative going around is that Hamas (i.e. Iran) carried out the October 8th (Sukkot) attacks to derail the deal, so if the deal is signed on the anniversary of the attacks this year (after September elections) it will be a symbolic victory for Gantz. May 19, 2024 20:03:57 GMT -6
EnochWalked: "Gantz threatened to quit by June 8 if key decisions were not made. Gantz has already called for elections in September and is widely seen as a potential future PM himself. In recent days, Gantz has been speaking with Sullivan about the Saudi deal" May 19, 2024 19:55:12 GMT -6
EnochWalked: 'Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently described that part of the vision as requiring both "calm in Gaza" and a "credible pathway to a Palestinian state."' Perhaps they have already agreed it with Gantz, and view the Israeli election as a formality. May 19, 2024 19:53:09 GMT -6
EnochWalked: "A second component would normalize relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel, but that is contingent on a third complicated and aspirational component that would forge a pathway to a Palestinian state." What incentive do the Saudis/Israel have for that? May 19, 2024 19:52:08 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/us-saudi-arabia-near-potentially-historic-security-deal/ 'The United States and Saudi Arabia are "days away" from concluding the documents' 'including defense guarantees and civil nuclear cooperation'. So nuclear weapons. May 19, 2024 19:50:56 GMT -6
Dave: I saw it too. Crazy since 9 am. Couldn't trust it in the beginning. Now it looks bad. Out of the 3 copters, only the 1 with the big shots had a "hard landing". Biden called to the WH. May 19, 2024 9:34:01 GMT -6
Natalie: Saw news that the helicopter carrying Iran's president crashed. I will post a link if I find out more. May 19, 2024 8:07:01 GMT -6
EnochWalked: Of course that would require a national DNA database, which would soon get leaked or accessed by corporations, to deny people health insurance or jobs. Judges might issue harsher sentences too, like the death penalty. And if they find a "religious" gene? May 19, 2024 3:22:19 GMT -6
EnochWalked: The goal being abortions of children who don't meet the genetic ideal (at least as an option for rich couples). But what about when governments also decide that adults with "undesirable" traits are not allowed to have children, or own property, or vote? May 19, 2024 3:18:32 GMT -6
EnochWalked: jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2818674 "Approval among these respondents for using PES for embryo selection was notably high for physical health conditions (1109 [77.7%]) and psychiatric health conditions (1028 [72.0%])." May 19, 2024 3:16:19 GMT -6
EnochWalked: His demands include 'Provide an “American-European-Arab-Palestinian” governing alternative in the Strip' (Roman occupation?) 'Return the residents of the North by September 1' (in time for Rosh Hashanah?) 'a treaty with the free world' (covenant with many) May 18, 2024 18:47:57 GMT -6
EnochWalked: '“Personal and political considerations have infiltrated the holy of holies of Israeli security,” Gantz said.' Wow! Was that a deliberate reference to visiting the Temple Mount? Is he prophesying an Abomination of Desolation? May 18, 2024 18:45:13 GMT -6
