The Hamas leader in Gaza just got an illness he deserves

Another terrorist chief has just been infected with Coronavirus, in the Gaza strip:
Hamas's Gaza leader, Yahya Sinwar, has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, a spokesman for the Islamist terrorist group, which runs the territory, said on Tuesday.

[...] Sinwar, a former head of Hamas's security apparatus, became the organization's Gaza leader in 2017, six years after he was freed in a prisoner swap with Israel.

Gaza has logged nearly 21,000 coronavirus cases and 111 deaths.
He and all others harboring evil positions asked for it. They may not be clear about what's actually happening there beyond this news, but if he's in serious pain, that too is another something he deserves, along with if he goes to face the highest court.

Nir Barkat: illegal PLO construction in Areas B to C must stop

Former Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat took a tour of the Amichai district, and got to see a very serious issue to be dealt with:
The Likud Zion and Jerusalem Forum hosted a tour of Amichai and area localities by Likud member and former Jerusalem Mayor MK Nir Barkat.

Barkat closely monitored the PA takeover of Area C and other areas and said for the first time that Israel could not abandon the area to the Palestinians.

"Symmetry should be applied in the open areas in both Area C and Area B. If we cannot build in the open area, the Palestinians cannot either," he declared.
I'm glad he's gone to see what's taking place, and he is too. The PLO's illegal activities cannot be allowed to continue.

Saudi prince with sordid record buying into ownership of Japanese video game company

If this news on IGN is correct, it appears a once well regarded video game publisher is selling out to Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman:
The crown prince of Saudi Arabia - through his youth-focused MiSK charity - has purchased 33.3% of SNK, the developer behind King of Fighters, Samurai Shodown, Metal Slug and more. MiSK has announced its intent to buy a total of 51% of shares, and take majority ownership.

It's a move that's already causing controversy, given that the crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, has previously been directly implicated in the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, accused of sending an assassination hit squad into Canada, and is the de facto leader of a country repeatedly lambasted for multiple human rights abuses.

The 33.3% of SNK shares were bought for approximately $216 million, valuing the full company at around £648 million.
Aside from concerns that they could censor and obliterate whatever past players found appealing about their games for the sake of the Religion of Peace's beliefs, what's mainly offensive is the lack of moral compass on display here from SNK company executives themselves, permitting a man with such a repellent record of abuses to buy into their company...and potentially sell out to him altogether. If you care about the products of a company like SNK, you'll have to boycott them now in order to send a message. Demand that they buy back the stock they sold, among other things, and not sell ownership to such a monster and his still totalitarian Islamic regime. This is definitely a terrible day for anybody who liked to play King of Fighters, among other computer games made by SNK, in the past.
