    Good news for holocaust survivors:

    German Government to Quadruple Payments to 'Holocaust' Survivors

    There are some 200,000 Holocaust survivors living in Israel. Tragically, around 50,000 of them live around or below the poverty line.
    Aviva Silberman, welcomed the agreement.

    “Finally they raised the compensation level for Holocaust survivors,” she said, explaining that the compensation law (Bundesentschädigungsgesetz) hadn’t been updated since the 1960s.
    The lengthy negotiation between the authorities resulted in the signing of a memorandum of understanding, according to which survivors will receive an additional €100-€400 per month. This increase will raise total funds that Germany pays them each year to €15 million.

    Survivors from North Africa, for example, who suffered from the Holocaust but were not directly swept up in it, do not receive compensation from Germany. The same goes for emigrants from the former Soviet Union and survivors who did not undergo forced labor.

    “It is the role of the Germans to take care of these populations as well,” Silberman added. “It’s not Israelis who are responsible for the Holocaust. It’s not you and me who have to pay survivors from our taxes.

    “While the government does need to take care of these additional populations, it also needs to come from Germany,” she said, adding that “I think they should continue to negotiate with the Germans as successfully as they did now, so that they recognize these populations as well.”

    I agree, the Germans should pay while they can. Less money for weapons to fight illegal wars for the US is a good thing.

    No, I changed my mind! More money for Israel is not a good thing. Israel is a rogue terror state!

    Latest Unprovoked Israeli Attack on Syrian Civilians...

    Israeli jets stealthily approached Syria via Lebanese air space and rained missiles at multiple targets in the suburbs of Damascus and Homs in Syria!
    Sixteen people, including a baby, were killed and 21 others suffered injuries, including a month-old baby girl, who suffered burns and facial wounds.


    The missile attack constituted the violation of national sovereignty and territorial integrity of two UN member states — Lebanon and Syria.

    Israel committed a war crime by killing innocent unarmed civilians.

    "The eleventh Command: Israel is allowed to do anything."
    Almost daily Israel demonstrates just that, and the world keeps quiet.

    RE: About the Holocaust
    ⁜→ alexa, et al,

    Yes, you have a good observation here and an excellent follow-on question.

    (COMMENT)

    IMO, while there is a whole host of thing in play here, the two most aspects that influence the repetitious military news are:

    ◈ The lack of other more energetic new events for the DoD Press Office to release. When you have nothing new to report, but must publish something, you have to highlight something trivial to make it look like they are doing something.

    ◈ Some news articles are similar if not the same as previous articles to make it look like, a couple years down the road (on a reflection backwards in time), a history of past criminal behaviors. Should it become necessary to provide justication for possible future actions.​

    When the DoD talks about the "environmental considerations" — they are not talking about the weather. It is a spectrum of media outlets, capacity to access news events or
    that may affect the planning and execution of present and future military operations.

    While media management and public affairs are no outlets or platforms for misinformation and disinformation (ie propaganda roles), they are often used to counter propaganda through the release of true information that negates or mitigates hostile propaganda efforts. But the DoD agencies that manage media development "will only release truthful information."

    Inferences are another matter. What is released is 100% true. The inferences drawn made lead to a different conclusion. In the case of the drone events, suspicious minds may conclude that the event:

    ◈ Could have been a test on the dectection or interception of the entity under surveillance.

    ◈ Could have been to mislead the aggressor into thinking their air defense capability is better than it really is.

    ◈ Could be that the surveillance device was sacrificed in a deception operation (less capable than what it is).​

    There are simply a dozen reasons for a release of information; none of which are to bore you. In fact, some news releases are not even targeting a friendly audience.

    Most Respectfully,
    R
