    Hammas once again using Women and Childern.. I am sorry you throw firebombs and Soldiers

    YOU WILL BE SHOT.

    It is time for the NATO and Israel to take Hammas out like the cancer it is.

    Because I’m sitting here in Jerusalem, knowing that if those protesters break through the fence, it will be the beginning of a wave of angry people running across the border. Tens of thousands of people in a way that the country cannot handle — and I know that some of them want to kill me, and some of them have weapons. I know that some of them are affiliated with terrorist organizations dedicated to Israel’s destruction.

    Gaza is experiencing a humanitarian crisis. Israel, the PA, Hamas, Egypt, and the international community all share some of the blame, and I can’t figure out who is most responsible. I don’t really care — what I care about is that people are dying, and that people are living without adequate food, electricity, or potable drinking water. I initially supported the protests, because I believe in the right to protest peacefully, and because I can’t blame the Gazans for wanting to enter Israel, which must seem like a Garden of Eden right across the border. But then the protests turned violent. Terrorists joined the innocent protesters, knowing that if Israel opened fire, it would not only play badly to the media, but also further incite Palestinian rage.

    These extremists accomplished their goal. Both sides are becoming more entrenched, and people are dying. The terrorists’ greatest fear is that we’ll be able to talk to each other, because the minute that happens, we’ll realize that the extremists lied. There is no Us and Them — there is only a We, fated to share this land together; and in order to thrive, we must care about each other, because part of thriving means having a moral society.

    "at the time" I wrote the post in question, that was all the information that was available.

    It was reported by the "news" media like that "at the time".

    As it turns out, more information came out later.

    That's very often the way it works...

    The vote was never held. No one at the United Nations even SUGGESTED placing Peacekeepers in Gaza in advance of the riots.

    Given that the protesters are unarmed and harmless, you'd think that the U.N. would have proposed it.

    That's because Israel's government is investing in keeping its civilians safe, while the Palestinian government is pressuring civilians to arm themselves and engage in violent protests.

    Don't forget - Hamas had HUGE amounts of concrete. They could have used it to build shelters or bunkers for their civilians. Instead, they used it to reinforce tunnels leading into Israel which could be used to launch attacks.

    Of course more Palestinian civilians are killed than Israeli civilians. And Hamas would't have it any other way.

    Be careful as to what sort of regimes you (and your nation) support - every death is a human tragedy, but the life of one Israeli civilian is not more important than the lives of 83 Palestinian children (that is the ratio involved).

    And this is from an Israeli source.




    I love the argument because the palestinian rockets are incompetent, that isreal is the bad one for defending itself.

    You should note that the article actually is critical of AI's anti-Israel bias. The picture does not involve any killing or torture, and in fact has nothing to do with the article. It is just there for no perceptible reason.

    no one took an 8 month old to a protest. She was killed by tear gas dropped from a drone, genius.

    To set an emotional tone and set the narrative as the media does.
