  • NY Times reports source of UNRWA school attack is unclear even though Israel said they did it
    • Jodi, Queen of Hasbara and Whataboutery!

      I want to thank MW for watching the NYT so I don't have to.

  • In photos: Over 1,000 New Yorkers protest Israel's attack on Gaza
    • Bravo! Thanks Alex and Christopher.

      (The counter- protesters and their signs are quite lame and

  • 10,000 march on Qalandia in solidarity with Gaza
    • Passenger planes should not be flying into and around a war zone, period.

      The airport is a legitimate "target" because the IAF uses it... btw, Hamas rockets are not laser guided.

    • An epic humanitarian disaster, courtesy of Israel. I am glad to never read MY's junk about how tenderly and carefully Israel cares for its dead.

      Israel gives Palestinians no respect when they are alive, and allows none when they are slaughtered by their forces of evil.

    • I am with you Palestine. Viva Palestine!

      For everything that you brave, beautiful and patient people have suffered, I beg your forgiveness.

      The US may never, ever occupy any 'moral high ground' ever again after supporting and enabling genocide of any humans-- and not of such an amazing people as the Palestinians.

  • Horrifying details continue to emerge of massacre in Khuza'a
    • Interesting graphic about violations of ceasefires here:

      (I asked about the Yeshiva students b/c of Bumblebye's comment that the IOF was conducting house to house searches...)

    • "Israel used fabricated images to justify bombing al-Wafa hospital

      The Israeli military on Wednesday completely destroyed the al-Wafa rehabilitation and geriatric hospital in the eastern Gaza City neighborhood of Shujaiya after weeks of missile strikes on the hospital and the forced evacuation of the patients, caregivers and hospital staff last week.

      The Israeli daily Haaretz reported that the Israeli military claimed the hospital buildings were “being used as a Hamas command center and rocket-launching site.” However, the hospital director, Dr. Basman Alashi, says that Israel has targeted the hospital based on false and misleading claims.
      The Gaza Ministry of Health reported that 797 Palestinians have now been killed and more than 5,100 injured during sixteen consecutive days of Israeli attacks. More than one hundred Palestinians were killed on Thursday alone as Israel attacked multiple areas of the Gaza Strip, including a United Nations school in Beit Hanoun where Palestinians had sought refuge.

      Al-Wafa is just one of 26 medical facilities and services, including paramedic ambulances, clinics and major hospitals, to have been targeted by Israel in the last sixteen days, notes the Ministry of Health.

      Ma’an News Agency reports today that Israel targeted the Muhammed al-Dura hospital and killed two-and-a-half-year-old Ibrahim al-Sheikh Omar who was in the intensive care unit after receiving treatment from an earlier injury. “Medical sources said the boy was hit by shrapnel from the explosion, killing him on the spot,” Ma’an reports. Thirty other Palestinians were injured in the missile strike on the hospital."

    • I don't even know how to respond to your comment. I certainly know my left from my right, and good from evil.

      Israel is acting with malice and evil. The US government supports it unconditionally. That is evil.

      "Is there any comparison in sheer scope between the crimes of Stalin, who killed millions before Hitler even came to power, and the crimes of Netanyahu who is determined to never have another Shoah?"

      Scope? You're daft. Israel is committing genocide! And you talk about scope... Netanyahu is bringing ruin to his people. This isn't about preventing another shoah, this is about massacring the indigenous people of Palestine.

    • You can't be serious! When? When they can blame it on Iran or a suitcase or anyone else? Or they will accidentally lose one and blame it on the ever present and dastardly 'terrorists' that plague them.

      If they let 'loose a nuclear weapon' they will kill many for a long time to come, including themselves.

    • Shun Israel. It's dangerous. It's genocidal.

      There's an infection in what used to be the soul of hurt people. The infection is now resistant to law and humanity. BDS.

    • I might have missed it, but did they find the folks that they think killed the 3 Yeshiva students?

      Otherwise they are just hunting/terrorizing surviving Palestinian civilians for sport.

    • I heard Regev saying that Israel stands unapologetically with the US
      (or some such rot)


    • Enough! Can the US government in toto say that? Please?

      This is genocide. It is criminal. It is against all law on this planet. I have been angry in my lifetime-- many times at my country for our warmongering against innocents. I have protested in many ways, they don't listen but at least I feel that I have a voice and am not entirely helpless. I feel helpless now.

      I have never been this angry or disgusted or ashamed of my country and most of my fellow citizens as I am now.

      not in MY name.

  • Hamas mimics Hezbollah tactics, and no one will have stability till blockade is lifted
    • Thanks for sharing Taxi-- great stuff.

    • Thanks for that comment, Abierno.

      I think that you are correct.

    • And why not, Annie?

      According to the US, they have every right to do as they please.

    • Apparently they have and can.

      It defies all decency and civilization.

    • Thanks seafoid.

    • Thank you Annie. I'm glad you are out of harm's way...

      This is a very good article. I am glad the Palestinians have 'had enough' of the legendary lies of Israel and the west. None of the western/eastern/northern/southern governments have ever come to the side of justice in P/I.

      The Palestinians have learned from history, and they 'know' their genocidal enemy and its myriad consorts. It is up to us-- everyman-- to force OUR governments to change.

  • U.S. casts lonely vote against establishing war crimes inquiry in Gaza
    • Drafting vehement objection right now.

      Mikulski and her co- conspirators against humanity, our national security and welfare need to be tossed.

      All 535 of them.

  • Jews Say: End the War on Gaza — No Aid to Apartheid Israel!
    • And anyone in the Knesset who says different is tossed out or targeted with death threats -- or both.

      It is sort of a democratic fascism.

    • Psychopathic forces of the GoI-- no democracy there, even for Jewish tourists.

      Perhaps Jen could speak to this if it's not too taxing. I'll spell it for her-- FASCISM.

  • Gaza massacre is generating ideological crisis in American Zionists
  • Avishai says we misrepresented his views
    • lol, ritzl.

    • Aha! More proof that there is no such thing as a "liberal Zionist"!

      (Hope The New Yorker invites him back real soon-- perhaps they can attach a very meaningful cartoon to his next article.)

  • Israeli forces shell UN school where displaced Palestinians gathered, killing at least 9
    • What?

      Did the IOF call him up since some reservists are saying no?

    • NormanF, let me give you a hand here:

      Israel has to stop the genocide of Palestinians.

      This is the way wars end. If it had any concern for the population, it would have ended all the shooting.

      Further violence is senseless. But no one apparently can talk sense into the leaders of Israel.

      There, I fixed it for you. Go tell your leaders.

    • I watched it, and I understand your tears...

      I am quite sure that whoever defends this or does this has NO humanity to begin with.


    • Farhan Haq (UN) on CNN.

      Not looking like Israel's gonna get away with this-- jmo.

    • They make me puke...inveterate liars!

      This is deliberate massacre/genocide/terrorism.

    • Well, looks like the hasbara/Zionist brigade has found a nest.

      It's why I stay far, far away.

    • So Ayman was right...

      Will the US finally join the civilized world and condemn Israel's genocide/massacre/

      Traumatized people 'evacuate' per Israel's directive, they huddle in place and Israel murders them.

      What is that called Mr. Kerry & Mr. Obama?

      (don't even try to bring up 'fog of war' or 'missiles in schools'-- it's all proven bs!)

  • Why Israel's legal justifications for 'Operation Protective Edge' are wrong
    • Many, many thanks for this comprehensive report. It's invaluable.

      (btw-- CNN Paula Hancocks and Carol Costello had a more than sobering report on the dead, displaced, traumatized children who are the victims of this Israeli genocide/massacre/terrorism).

  • The swan song of the Israeli left
  • 'No food, no water to revive awaiting certain death...': Horrifying report from Khuza'a village following Israeli attack
    • one more thing...the airport is a "legitimate" target because the IAF uses it........

    • "We want to live side by side, it’s them who are running after us. We handed them the land and they turned it into a fortress of terror.”

      What breathtaking hubris he has, and terrible filthy lies he tells, seafoid.

    • well said, fingrinn-- very powerful and true.

      thank you & welcome.

    • The evil comments wrt the 4 precious children should be spread far and wide... perhaps available in church bulletins and services this would prove instructive to the masses.

      btw-- I was thinking of the PCUSA vote and wondering how the dissenters feel now...

    • Ban lifted... so who wants to go to Israel now that everything is 'safe and normal'?

      Anyone who does is an idiot. Who wants to fly to war? If a rocket hits a plane or BG, Hamas will be blamed-- not Israel, not the FAA, not the airline, not the passenger or the crew. So remember folks, Israel does not care about safety of international passengers during this war of their making and execution, they care about your shekels.

    • She was right then, and it's right now.

      Despicable what happened to her for speaking the truth. It's taking a lot of people a long time to recognize the damage done by our 'special relationship' with the apartheid state, and it will take even longer to make amends.

    • No surprise there.

      Bloomberg pulled a nutty on wolf when he was asked if he thought that the ban was politically motivated-- I guess he didn't get the memo, or maybe he has enough $$$ himself.

    • Nope. Kick the settlers out, cut all funding and weapons to them, and have UN monitors on the ground to watch.

      Palestinians belong in Palestine, if they want to be in Palestine.

      btw, your scenario is the Zionists' dream. I know you probably mean well, but it ain't gonna fly.

    • grimacing an lol, jaw clenched.

    • "No food, no water to revive awaiting certain death…"

      This is genocide, folks.

      (Felice thank you for bringing this to my attention, and thank you for your work yesterday @ FIDF)

  • On ‘Death to Arabs’ in Jerusalem & Tel Aviv
    • Oh please.

      Israel's "tradition" is Zionism and the original terrorism that stained the land The Palestinians had nothing to do with creating your character or lack thereof. It was always there, from the beginning. You own it, don't blame others for your sins.

    • "It has been under these conditions that I’ve finally been acquainting myself with Israel’s capital"

      You were in Tel Aviv?

      (sarcasm intended)

      I wish you luck on your work.

  • It's time for liberal Jewish bodies to take a stand
    • precisely.

    • Now, that IS taking a stand.

      Let's see what happens to these reservists. Will there be more to join the ranks? Will these guys/gals be vilified?

    • Zionism must be buried and never allowed to resurface.

    • I appreciate this, but..........

      It's time for all HUMAN BEINGS to take a stand. Liberal or Conservative, Jew or Muslim or Christian or Atheist etc., Black or White or Brown or Purple!

      Israel is a place now inhabited by people doing horrific things to and against an indigenous population-- it is a massacre and a genocide done by terrorists.

      Anyone who is not against it will rue the day, and should be deeply ashamed and shunned.

  • Palestinians build tunnel to attack Israeli kindergarten, Netanyahu says
    • wiki:

      "At Goldstein's funeral, Rabbi Yaacov Perrin claimed that even one million Arabs are "not worth a Jewish fingernail""

      Hope that helps jog your memory, Jon.

    • Ayman says that Israel hit a school and possibly 10 Palestinians killed..preliminary.

      But, he says that Israel has hit several schools during their assault.

    • thanks Annie.

      He just flinging the old "ziopoop" to see if anything will stick.

    • King Bloomberg bloviating for Israel...he doesn't need the money, must be a matter of faith...

      He's criticizing US airports while promoting Ben Gurion. (FAA is good, but not as good as Isr-- BG and El Al are the bestest!)

      Barkat at his side, enjoying the limelight. Bloomers getting steamed at wolf for asking whether the ban is politically motivated.

  • Speaking to the Deaf: Activists attempt to talk with the Israeli public about Gaza
    • He was angry and loud, but more than anything he appeared and sounded frightened.

      The status quo is no longer sustainable and he is afraid.

      Too bad.

  • 'Heartbreaking' is U.S. government's talking point for Gaza massacre
    • Another great point, peeesss!

    • You make a good point that I've been mulling all day.

      "heartbreaking" is reserved for pain that is the result of something that cannot be helped-- ie, the Gazans suffering this terrorism courtesy of Israel, a natural disaster anywhere, etc.

      When we CAN do something about this-- it's not for our government to say they are heartbroken. It's for our government to STOP IT and our stupid policy toward Israel that allows/helps/conducts this ongoing genocide of the Palestinian people.

    • "And they do a better job than a rightwing friend of mine, who also felt sorrow for the innocent women and children and then promptly placed all the blame on Islam."

      You're persistent and loyal, Donald to still have a 'friend' like that. I reckon you have a lot of work & education to do with him/her.

      Me, I've left those types long ago. I'll nod in their general direction and that's about it. If they persist in stupidity and bigotry after all our discussions, bye- bye and good riddance.

      (PS-- imho that's not 'sorrow', that's just about making him/her feel better about themselves-- like they have some semblance of humanity)

    • You have a very good point. Thank you.

      There is no place in Gaza that is not a "civilian setting".

    • FAA extends ban.........!

    • 'soulless' works for me.

    • Take a bow, seafoid.

      That was priceless.

    • Heh-- me too, abc. I might have to start wearing a helmet.

      Is this the first time the WH has said no to Israel?

      "On Tuesday night Israel's prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, asked the US secretary of state, John Kerry, to help restore commercial flights. But a White House official, when asked, said: "We're not going to overrule the FAA. Period.""

      link to

    • He could do that.

      Kerry's right there (meeting with BN) -- he could do it as SOS, and it would be entirely appropriate for him to do as SOS.

    • Martin Fletcher is an unmitigated tool for Israel. Is he getting private lessons from wolf?

      Is there a yeshiva for 'journalists' where they spin hasbara and endlessly repeat the Ziomantra in order to report from and about Israel?

    • appropriate, indeed.

    • If they won't say massacre, how about genocide? Why don't they try terrorism and genocide?

      How about US sponsored terrorism, genocide, and massacre?

      (I saw that video of that woman {RIP} and you probably don't need to know my reaction)

      Israel's actions are gruesome and evil. I hold anyone that can't see it in contempt.

  • 'We know that Israel has no red line when it attacks us': Civilians bear the brunt as Israel’s offensive on Gaza continues
    • This is a reply on the EI bit from above:

      "Ali, the politician in question has formally filed a complaint for identity theft against the person who created the Twitter account. Someone wrote that horrible tweet, but it was not him:"

      link to

    • How can any human tolerate/condone this?

      "In an extreme sign of the anti-Muslim hatred and pro-Israel sentiment among France’s political elite, an elected official took to Twitter to ask mockingly if Palestinian children killed in Israel’s onslaught on Gaza were “halal meat.”

      Jacques Renaud, the deputy mayor of Montreuil-Juigné in western France, uses Twitter to post a constant stream of anti-Palestinian and pro-Israel propaganda."

      link to

    • I just saw another pitiable sight on MSNBC of a woman, barely alive, found under the rubble...her whole family was slaughtered by the Israelis.

      There are too many war crimes to even enumerate. Thanks for trying, Yousef, and for your comprehensive report. I pray for an end to the massacre, siege and Occupation.
      I hope that you are able to stay safe.
