    A union for academics at the University of Oxford will hold a vote on declaring solidarity with the "Palestinian people" and calling for "intifada until victory."

    The University and College Union (UCU) scheduled a general meeting of its members for Thursday to vote on a motion related to the Israel-Hamas war, which began after Hamas attacked Israel on October 7 and killed more than 1,400 people. Multiple members have pushed the union to issue a statement blaming Israel for the attack, according to the U.K. outlet The Telegraph.

    A draft motion shared with UCU members calls the ongoing war "a direct consequence of decades of violent oppression of the Palestinian people by the Israeli state," according to The Telegraph.

    "[O]nly a mass uprising on both sides of the green line and across the Middle East can free the Palestinian people," the motion says. "[I]t is the duty of the international movement of workers and youth to support this struggle," it continues, calling for "a Socialist Federation of the Middle East" and "intifada until victory."

    The UCU informed its members about Thursday's vote on the motion in an email. "The Branch Committee has decided to call this meeting in response to requests from multiple members to discuss and debate solidarity motions relating to the ongoing war in Israel and Palestine," the email said.

    Oxford University condemned the Hamas assault in a statement last week issued after the university faced backlash over its initial response to the terror attack that left out any explicit denunciation of Hamas.

    "The impact of the appalling attacks by Hamas, and the deep concerns for the civilian Palestinian population and hostages in Gaza itself are understandably being felt by communities across the world, including in our own. Our thoughts are with all those suffering and we stress that there is no place for antisemitism, Islamophobia or hate for any faith at Oxford," the University's new statement says.

    The Israel-Hamas war has driven massive protests in nearby London. On Saturday, police estimated that "up to 100,000" pro-Palestinian protesters marched through the city for roughly three hours demonstrating against Israeli air strikes in Gaza.


    Israel has pummeled Hamas military installations in Gaza since the October 7 attack. The locations are almost always in civilian areas because Hamas uses civilian deaths as propaganda against Israeli retaliation.

    An Israeli ground invasion of the Gaza Strip is expected to begin soon to clear out an extensive network of tunnels Hamas has built throughout Gaza. The terror group uses the tunnel network to avoid Israeli air strikes and smuggle and store weaponry.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
