Breaking news out of south Florida tonight.  The Broward County Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association concluded their vote of ‘no confidence’ in Sheriff Israel.  Israel faced much backlash after his offices failure to properly deal with the Parkland massacre that left 17 innocents dead.  Fox News has more on the story …

Fox News Reports:  A union of deputies in Florida on Thursday announced it has “no confidence” in Broward County

Sheriff Scott Israel.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association said a symbolic vote among its members, initiated last week, indicated 534 of 628 officers in the union voted they had no confidence in the sheriff.

The association, a chapter of the International Union of Police Associations, cited the national criticism surrounding Israel and his office following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14.

Israel, in response to the announcement of a vote, said union boss Jeff Bell was trying “to use the Parkland tragedy as a bargaining tactic to extort a 6.5 percent raise” from the sheriff’s office, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

Bell told the newspaper that “amazing leadership starts from the top, and there is no amazing leadership here,” adding that members of the union “have displayed great courage to come out and vote under threat of retaliation and reprisal from the sheriff.”

The sheriff has stood by his leadership of the policing agency and its response to the school shooting, which left 17 people dead.

Bell said the association’s next step is to present the vote to Florida Gov. Rick Scott — who rejected calls from some state legislators to suspend Israel after the shooting — and to ask him to “please make change and replace the sheriff with somebody who is capable of amazing leadership.” Read More

Just In: Shady Sheriff Israel Is About To Be Thrown Out Of Office By His Own Men

Image result for Just In: Shady Sheriff Israel Is About To Be Thrown Out Of Office By His Own Men

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel became a cause celebre following the Parkland shooting rampage that left 17 high school students dead and the same number injured.  Israel’s willingness to assail the Second Amendment rights of Americans during a nationally televised “town hall” where the narrative was tightly controlled by CNN was widely applauded by the mainstream media.

We weren’t buying Israel’s gun-grabbing response that came following the carnage that was the result of his gross malfeasance or worse, the potential that he had deliberate intent to allow Cruz to carryout his rampage so as to initiate the necessary outcry to advance a politically motivated agenda.

Now we have company.  The Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association is accusing Israel of “many instances of suspected malfeasance, misfeasance, failure to maintain fiduciary responsibility by the sheriff, failure to properly investigate possible criminal conduct by members of his senior command staff and the lack of leadership that has crushed morale throughout the agency.”

Israel’s eagerness to capitalize on the deaths made him second only to David Hogg as the poster boys for disarming Americans. 

But Israel can’t escape the truth about his complete lack of accountability for failing to prevent the shootings, the command decisions he made once the shooter began his rampage, and the narrative and timeline that never added up.

Conservative Tribune Reported:
“According to CNN, the law enforcement union that represents Broward County deputies is holding a vote that may find that the rank-and-file have “no confidence” in the sheriff.

“Jeff Bell, the president of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association, told CNN on Friday that union members had decided to move forward with the vote, which will begin electronically tonight and will close on April 26,” the news outlet explained.’

Bell minced no words in his dire assessment of Israel’s leadership ability.

“There is a complete failure at the sheriff’s office and he doesn’t recognize it,” Bell said.

The sheriff’s refusal to release the video recordings from the school’s CCTV cameras only increased the belief that he is hiding his personal failings and the men under his command are sick of it.

There is something about the shooting stars of gun-grabbers like David Hogg and Scott Israel who never seem able to withstand the test of time once the bright lights of scrutiny are shone on them.  The mainstream media can only prop up liars for so long before the truth comes out.

Israel Shows No Mercy: Bombs The Hell Out Of Syria Following Checmial Attack

A Syria military base was just the target of an airstrike, and most outlets immediately blamed Israel for the attack. The Washington Post reported that during the early hours of Monday morning, a Syrian air base was attacked in a missile strike which was carried out by Israeli warplanes. The Syrian and Russian governments have reported multiple casualties as well as the fear of further confrontation between world powers.

Israeli officials wouldn’t comment initially on the claims. The T4 airfield in Homs province that was raided was also thought to be a base for Iranian and Iranian-allied troops. Tensions have been rising lately due to the possibility of United States military action in Syria after allegations of a chemical strike near Damascus late on Saturday night.

Russia, an ally of Syria, called the Israeli raid a “dangerous development.” According to Reuters, they also claimed that reports of a gas attack near Damascus were a “provocation.”

On Sunday, United States officials stated that options were being considered to strike Syrian government targets following the deaths of at least 40 people in the opposition-held town, Douma, which is about 10 miles form the Syrian capital. Trump stated on Sunday that there would be a “big price to pay” for the horrific attack.

It was confirmed by the United States that Israel did hit Syria.

Early on Monday morning, Israel conducted an airstrike against a Syrian air base. Two United States officials told NBC News that the United States was informed in ahead of time. It wasn’t but a few hours after a possible poison gas attack on the final foothold for rebels fighting the Assad regime that the missile attack began.

The Pentagon stated that the United States had nothing to do with the attack

Syrian claims that the United States attacked the Homs air base on Sunday were shot down by the Pentagon. The Pentagon’s statements came after President Trump tweeted “Animal Assad” would have a “big price to pay” for the chemical attack in Douma.

The Washington Post reported:

The state-run Syrian Arab News Agency claimed Syrian air defenses shot down eight missiles fired at the T-4 airbase early Monday morning local time, in an attack which killed and injured an unspecified number of people.

The base, located in a strategic position between the cities of Homs and Palmyra in Syria’s west, has been a key staging ground for Syrian and Russian aircraft during the war.

Earlier, Syrian State TV said the assault was a “likely attack by the US.”

You can bet that there will be more news from Syria very soon.

Sheriff Israel Refuses To Show Up for Senate Hearing, Immediately Gets What’s Coming To Him

A lot of blame should be placed on Sheriff Israel’s office in the case of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting that took place last month. Sheriff Israel deserves a fair amount of that blame. The sheriff’s office took in roughly 50 calls involving Nikolas Cruz even though he claimed that the number was closer to 20.

The Independent reported that the Broward County Sheriff’s Office responded to around 50 calls involving Nikolas Cruz or his brother within the 10 years prior to him opening fire in his former high school.

Call logs were taken from the sheriff’s office. These logs prove that authorities had 45 calls about Cruz and his brother between 2008 and 2017. CNN reported that the reasons for these calls stretch from “domestic disturbance” to “missing person” to “animal abuse.”

The amount of calls is much higher than the 20 or so that Israel claimed that they received. So Israel is either incompetent or a liar… or both. Sheriff Israel’s officers failed to respond while at the scene.

It was reported that Chuck Grassley isn’t allowing Scott Israel to get off scotch free. The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman excoriated Israel because he failed to show up to a Wednesday hearing on Capitol Hill. The meeting was about the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He was accused of having “let the American people down.”

The Iowa Republican stated in his opening remarks, “The committee also invited Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel to testify.”

Grassley compared Israel’s failure to show up with his frequent media appearances. He was at a pro-gun town hall hosted by liberal news network CNN days after the shooting at the Parkland, Florida high school.

“I’ve seen that sheriff all over television discussing the shooting, so it’s disappointing that he has refused to speak to the country through his testimony before this committee.”

Israel simply shouldn’t be employed by any kind of law enforcement agency based on his actions on February 14.

National Review reported:

The numbers tell the story: 23 sheriff’s calls involving the Parkland shooter; 18 sheriff’s calls involving the shooter’s behavior directly (some of the others were principally about his brother); four sheriff’s deputies, armed and trained, cowering outside the high school while the killer within carried out his massacre; 17 dead.

The failure of the Broward County sheriff’s department in this matter has been comprehensive — before and during the incident, obviously, and after it, too, with the continued sanctimonious blame-dodging of the sheriff. The sheriff’s department (and other law-enforcement agencies from Palm Beach County to the FBI) had every reason to believe not only that the killer was a danger to others but that he was specifically planning a school massacre. People who knew him called in with that specific worry, and the killer boasted online of his plan to become a school shooter. Those boasts were forwarded to the FBI, which did precisely nothing in response. The killer himself called police to tell them he had been having trouble after the death of his mother.

EXPLOSIVE: Shocking Ties Between Sheriff Israel and Hamas-Linked Suspect Exposed

Elder Patriot – In 2015 Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel appointed Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) leader Nezar Hamze to be his Deputy Sheriff, one of the most prominent positions in his department. 

This is remarkable considering CAIR has been named as a co-conspirator by the U.S. government for two federal trials dealing with the financing of Hamas, and it is recognized as an international terrorist group by the government of United Arab Emirates (UAE).

When Hamze was conducting a class at the Tampa-area Daarus Salaam Mosque preparing CAIR attendees for an active shooter situation he was unequivocal in his words:

“When someone walks through that door, they don’t want to debate. They want to kill you.” 

When someone asked him if being a Muslim gun owner might send the wrong message Hamze responded with these instructions:

“Are you gonna be more worried about that, or are you gonna be worried about protecting your family? The minute we start thinking past that, we lose.”

Hamze’s broader message was that a “victim mentality” was not going to save them when a crisis arose.  He advised them of the Second Amendment rights to protect themselves and to defend their loved ones with firearms and rifles when necessary.

It would be convenient to credit this to more malfeasance and/or hypocrisy on the part of Sheriff Israel but that would be a mistake.

Sheriff Israel had to have known that his new Deputy Sheriff had been, and continues to be, the Regional Operations Director of CAIR-Florida after having previously served as CAIR-Florida’s Executive Director.

Hamze also seemed to disqualify himself as a law enforcement officer for the manner in which he defended his cousin, Abdelaziz Bilal Hamze, after he used his minivan to run over a woman and then dragged her body for several miles leaving a wake of body parts in his wake.  His cousin then attempted to flee the United States.  Hamze told the media that his cousin “made some bad decisions,”he “may have been a little threatened.”

Sheriff Israel’s questionable relationship with terrorists extends well beyond hiring Hamze to a top position in his department.

In 2015 he also posed with for photos with Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout and a member of Zakkout’s Miami-based AMANA group at a local mosque. Zakkout is a big supporter of Hamas and posted to his Facebook page Hamas logos and photos of Hamas militants and leaders, including Hamas founders Ahmed Yassin and Abdel Aziz al-Rantisi and deceased Hamas bomb maker Yehiya Ayyash.

Prior to that in 2014 Zakkout organized a pro-Hamas rally held in Downtown Miami, where the crowd chanted loudly a number of anti-Jewish and pro-Hamas slogans. Zakkout is shown on video with a huge grin on his face, as his mob repeatedly screams, “We are Hamas.” Following the rally, Zakkout wrote in Arabic on his Facebook page, “Thank God, every day we conquer the American Jews like our conquests over the Jews of Israel!”

More evidence of Sheriff Israel’s ties to terrorists came when he attended the Islamic Foundation of South Florida (IFSF), for a June Ramadan Iftar meal. The event was sponsored by Emerge USA, an innocuously named Islamist lobbying and advocacy group that attempts to dupe politicians into attending its functions by seducing them with a “Muslim vote.”

At the dinner he posed for photos with the co-founder and co-chairman of Emerge, Khurrum Wahid, a South Florida attorney who has spent years representing high-profile Muslim terrorists. They include: Rafiq Sabir, who received a 25-year prison sentence for conspiring to provide material support to al-Qaeda; Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, who was given a life sentence for being part of al-Qaeda and for plotting to assassinate President George W. Bush; Sami al-Arian who spent time in prison (and was later deported) for his activities within Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ); and Hafiz Khan, a Miami imam who received 25 years for shipping $50,000 to the Taliban explicitly to murder American troops overseas.

According to the Miami New Times, Wahid himself was placed on a federal terrorist watch list in 2011.

Another photo from the Iftar featured Sheriff Israel and IFSF Events Coordinator Abdur Rahman al-Ghani. Al-Ghani’s Facebook page is littered with anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Jewish and Islamic supremacist language and images. In March 2013, al-Ghani posted on his Facebook site a photo of a group of American rabbis, who were meeting with President George W. Bush in the Oval Office to discuss Judaism, with the caption, “Every President has end [sic] up like this. This is the power of Zionism in our U.S. Government.” In December 2012, he wrote on Facebook, “Zionist/Israelis are not holy people. They are demonic and the most evil on earth.”

In April 2012, al-Ghani posted on his Facebook page a graphic depicting an American flag, stating “Worlds [sic] Number One Terrorist Organization.” In March 2012, he posted a graphic stating, “ISLAM WILL DOMINATE THE WORLD.” He wrote next to it, “Yes, Allah (SWT) has Decreed [sic] we will overtake the world in numbers…” And in February 2012, al-Ghani posted a graphic of the CIA logo spattered in blood with a caption that read in part, “You wipe out the organization that is solely responsible for every terrorist act committed since it’s [sic] creation. You wipe out the CIA.”

The third stop of Sheriff Israel’s radical Muslim tour led him to the Darul Uloom Mosque, located in Pembroke Pines, Florida. Darul Uloom has ties to a number of high-profile al-Qaeda terrorists.

“Dirty Bomber” Jose Padilla was a student at Darul Uloom. His teacher was the current imam at the mosque, Maulana Shafayat Mohamed. Padilla was sentenced to 21 years in prison for providing material support to terrorists and for conspiracy to murder, kidnap and maim individuals overseas.

Now-deceased al-Qaeda commander and al-Qaeda Global Operations Chief Adnan el-Shukrijumah was a prayer leader at the mosque. In 2010, Shukrijumah was indicted by New York authorities for plotting suicide bombings in the city’s subway system. His father, Gulshair el-Shukrijumah, who was a translator for the spiritual leader of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, “Blind Shaikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman, taught classes at Darul Uloom. One of Gulshair’s students, Imran Mandhai, was sentenced to twelve years in prison for plotting to blow up strategic targets in South Florida. Mandhai was deported to Pakistan this past May.

It has further been alleged that one of the 19 hijackers from the September 11 attacks prayed at Darul Uloom.

Scott Israel’s association with terrorists is significantly more extensive than we listed here.

Perhaps that explains why he didn’t lift a finger to defend the children at Marjory Stoneman Douglas H.S. and won’t allow anyone else to be empowered to defend them either.

The sheriff is well aware that “When someone walks through that door, they don’t want to debate. They want to kill you.” 

But for our kids he’s “more worried about appearances, than he is worried about protecting our children? 

Sheriff Israel knows all too well “The minute we start thinking past that, we lose.”  And, apparently that’s exactly how he wants it.

Report: Iran Has 10 Military Bases in Syria, Two Near Israeli Border, Training 20,000 Fighters

IAEA

TEL AVIV – There are 10 Iranian military bases in Syria, two of which are close to the border with Israel, that are training militias from the Bashar al-Assad regime for a future war with the Jewish state, an analyst for an American think tank contended in an article published Monday.

As many as 20,000 fighters in Syria have been trained by Iranian military personnel, giving Iran its “true muscle” in Syria, according to the Monday report in the New York Times. About 6,000 of them are Hezbollah members, with the rest coming from Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries. Most of them view the conflict in religious terms, the report said.

For years, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned that Iran is seeking regional hegemony by entrenching itself in Syria, from where it can arm its Lebanese terror proxy Hezbollah and train other Shiite militias to fight against Israel.

In November, Israel released satellite photos of an Iranian military base only 30 miles from the border with Syria.

On Monday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif denied the presence of any military bases in the war-torn country.

At least two Iraqi militia leaders have visited the Lebanon-Israel border with Hezbollah recently, the Times said, with militia members saying the visits were intended to formulate plans for how they might collaborate in a future conflict.

The combatants have switched their focus from the Sunni Islamic State terror group to Israel, Ali Alfoneh, a researcher at the U.S.-based Atlantic Council told the Times.

“Iran has realized that it is actually possible to maintain a front against Israel where there is no war, but also no peace,” Alfoneh said.

Last week, in response to an incursion by an Iranian drone into Israeli airspace, Israel launched airstrikes on 12 Syrian and Iranian targets, including three air-defense batteries and four Iranian targets, one of them the control center that launched the drone.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “Israel will not allow Iran’s regime to put a noose of terror around our neck” and added that his country would do everything to defend itself.

“We will act if necessary, not just against Iran’s proxies that are attacking us, but against Iran itself,” the prime minister said at the Munich Security Conference, which was also attended by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

He also brandished a fragment of the downed Iranian drone and asked, “Mr. Zarif, do you recognize this? You should, it’s yours. You can take back with you a message to the tyrants of Tehran — do not test Israel’s resolve!”

Zarif later responded on the same stage, calling Netanyahu’s fiery speech a “cartoonish circus.”

Israel Launches Devastating Aerial Assault on Syria After F-16 Shot Down Over Galilee

The Israel Air Force hadn’t lost a fighter jet to enemy fire in 34 years, until Saturday, when Iranian and Syrian forces downed an Israeli F-16 over the Galilee.

The plane in question was part of a strike force on a retaliatory mission into Syria after an Iranian drone entered Israeli airspace during the early morning hours.

The drone was promptly shot down, and then a squadron of Israeli fighters entered Syria to destroy the command center from which the infiltrator had been remotely piloted.

The Israeli planes faced overwhelming anti-aircraft fire. The downed F-16 was hit either directly by an Iranian-supplied Syrian missile, or by shrapnel resulting from an explosive anti-aircraft shell.

Either way, the injured pilots managed to return to Israeli airspace before crashing near a kibbutz in the Jezreel Valley.

That sparked a full day of devastating Israeli aerial assaults on Iranian and Syrian military installations.

According to IDF officials, four Iranian and eight Syrian bases were hit, including Syria’s main command and control bunker.

Many of those installations were covert in nature.

“They, and we, know what we hit and it will take them some time to digest, understand, and ask how Israel knew how to hit those sites,” Israeli Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz told Army Radio. “These were concealed sites and we have intelligence agencies and the ability to know everything that is going on there and yesterday we proved that.”

In addition to the demoralizing effect of destroying secret bases, Israel also reportedly did significant damage to Syria’s air defenses.

Air Force commander Brig. Gen. Tomer Bar told reporters that Saturday’s bombings constituted “the biggest and most significant attack the air force has conducted against Syrian air defenses since Operation Peace for the Galilee” – Israel’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon to halt incessant PLO terrorist attacks.

Unsurprisingly, Saturday’s aerial assault on Syria won the support of the Trump Administration in Washington.

“Israel is a staunch ally of the United States, and we support its right to defend itself from the Iranian-backed Syrian and militia forces in southern Syria,” read a statement released by US President Donald Trump.

“We call on Iran and its allies to cease provocative actions and work toward regional peace,” the White House added.

BREAKING: Israel Launches “Large Scale” Military Attack

If you’ve ever had the honor of standing side-by-side a soldier of the IDF (Israel Defense Forces), then you know that when these men and women go to war, they are absolutely lethal. Let’s just say I’d hate to be on the side who opposes them, which is exactly why their nation exists after being surrounded by enemies for decades.

Breitbart reports:

(ASSOCIATED PRESS) The Israeli military shot down an Iranian drone that infiltrated the country early Saturday before launching a “large-scale attack” on at least a dozen Iranian and Syrian targets in Syria. Israel called it a “severe and irregular violation of Israeli sovereignty” and warned of further action against the unprecedented Iranian aggression.

The military said its planes faced massive anti-aircraft fire from Syria that forced two pilots to abandon an F-16 jet that crashed in northern Israel. One pilot was seriously wounded and the other lightly. Syrian officials reported large explosions in the center of the country and the Syrian counter fire set off warning sirens throughout northern Israel.

The Israeli strikes marked its most significant engagement since the fighting in neighboring Syria began in 2011 and said Iran would be held responsible for its outcome.

“This is a serious Iranian attack on Israeli territory. Iran is dragging the region into an adventure in which it doesn’t know how it will end,” Israel’s chief military spokesman, Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis, said in a special statement. “Whoever is responsible for this incident is the one who will pay the price.”

Gen. Hossein Salami, acting commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, did not acknowledge Israel’s claim it shot down the drone. “We do not confirm any such news from Israel,” he said. But the joint operations room for the Syrian military and its allies denied the drone violated Israeli airspace, saying it was on a regular mission gathering intelligence on Islamic State militants.

Syria’s Defense Ministry said in statements on its website that its air defenses responded successfully to the Israeli operation and hit more than one plane. “The Israeli enemy has once again attacked some of our military bases in the southern area and our air defenses responded and foiled the aggression,” it said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman were convening the top brass at military headquarters in Tel Aviv to discuss further response.

Breaking: Iran Attacks Israel Multiple Times. Israel Mobilizes for War

The situation in the Middle East took a drastic turn for the worse early Saturday morning.

An Iranian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), or drone, entered Israeli airspace and was shot down by Israeli forces.

Immediately after, Israeli F-16s attacked Iranian targets in Syria.

The focus of the strike was reportedly the facility from where the Iranian drone was piloted.

During the raid, Iranian-operated Syrian anti-aircraft managed to shoot down one of the Israeli F-16s.

The plane crashed inside Israeli territory, and the pilots safely ejected before being hit.

Syrian media claimed that more than one Israeli aircraft was shot down.

In the following hours, Israeli aircraft bombed as many as 18 additional Syrian and Iranian military installations and mobilized ground forces in the Golan Heights border region in preparation for an escalation.

A statement released by the Israeli military read:

“The IDF is following events and is fully prepared for further action according to decisions and need.”

After Pop Star Cancels Show for Israel Boycott, Ringo Starr Takes Matters into His Own Hands After Pop Star Cancels Show for Israel Boycott, Ringo Starr Takes Matters into His Own Hands

Just a week after singer Lorde canceled her planned concert in Tel Aviv, former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr announced he will be performing in Israel.

The announcement was made on Starr’s website, stating that his All Starr Band had added new tour dates for their travels through Europe and Israel.

The 13th iteration band includes fellow rock legends Steve Lukather of Toto, Greg Rollie of Journey and Graham Gouldman of 10cc, according to Breitbart, and are booked for the Menorah Mivtahim Arena in Tel Aviv.

“Starr is going ahead with his visit, where others have feared to tread,” reports Breitbart Jerusalem. “Notably Lorde and Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters, who remains one of the most vocal anti-Israel celebrities in entertainment.”

The 21-year-old singer was scheduled to perform in the summer of 2018 in Tel Aviv, but received immense pressure from hard-left Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, which had called for boycotts of Israel.

“I’ve received an overwhelming number of messages and letters and have had a lot of discussions with people holding many views,” Lorde said in response to the call for her to step down. “And I think the right decision at this time is to cancel the show.”

However, the cancelation of the famous “Royals” singer was met with backlash on both social media and in other portions of the entertainment industry.

Meanwhile, social media users have highlighted the hypocrisy, as Lorde — who canceled her Israel concert on the basis of human rights reasons — will continue her concerts in other locations such as Russia.

Yet, other celebrities — like Starr — have gone ahead with concerts in the country during such controversial times, including those such as Lady Gaga, Radiohead, Rihanna and even Sir Paul McCartney — the latter having been threatened back in 2008 if he performed for his audience of 400,000 in Tel Aviv.

“If he values his life Mr. McCartney must not come to Israel,” militant Islamic activist Omar Bakri Muhammad said in reference to McCartney. “He will not be safe there. The sacrifice operatives will be waiting for him.”
Radiohead singer Thom Yorke has even been outspoken about the disdain of other celebrities towards Israel. As reported by The Guardian, Yorke fired back at Waters and other BDS activists for pressuring the band to cancel their concert scheduled concert in the Jewish state.
“It’s deeply disrespectful to assume that we’re either being misinformed or that we’re so retarded we can’t make these decisions ourselves,” Yorke told Rolling Stone.
“I thought it was patronizing in the extreme,” he added. “It’s offensive and I just can’t understand why going to play a rock show or going to lecture at a university (is a problem to them).”
