Gaza in photos: ceasefire, mourning and protests of the destruction of a television station

Israel/Palestine
on 11 Comments

Over the last 24 hours of escalated tensions between Gaza and Israel, Israeli forces targeted 160 sites in Gaza and Palestinian militants fired 460 rockets into Israel. In Gaza, six high-rise buildings were leveled, including the Hamas-run television station for al-Aqsa TV. Palestinians spent Tuesday clearing away rubble, journalists staged a protest on fallen debris, and funerals were held for some of the seven Palestinians killed in an Israeli raid inside of the Gaza Strip on Sunday retaliating for a strike in which members of Hamas’ military wing killed one Israeli officer.

A ceasefire was brokered by Egypt late Tuesday, yet protests in Gaza against the Israeli air campaign continued into the evening hours after the truce.

    Israël is not going to grow out of this. Israel is not going to change. Zionists can point to 1929 or dhimmis or Münich but it is all deflection. Israeli Jewish society is addicted to punitive violence. And Israel has no answer to the Palestinian question. These is no way to spin those facts.

      Violence and counter-violence is Israel’s path and is needed to play the double game. Opting for a stand down would build a bridge to consequential allies, humanist Jews and American politicians. Rocks and rockets have run the course already.

    Zionism is an evangelical GOP issue now.

      mooser, it’s a little more complicated than that, and rather cynical. you know how israel loves to get it’s war on before elections? lieberman and bennett are ready for the elections. so they’re using gaza to squeeze netanyahu. bennett says he’ll drop out of netanyahu’s coalition if he doesn’t get to be the next defense minister (which would force elections). or maybe he didn’t put it that way, i can’t recall. netanyahu says he’s going to be the prime minister and the defense minister (and a couple other ministries as i recall) they (bennett/ lieberman) are completely uninterested in this egypt/hamas/israel talk. they torpedoed it last weekend by invading gaza “covertly” and killing some palestinians which started the rockets that led to the airstrikes. lots of israelis want to plummet gaza, every few years you know. pre election.

        Great analysis Annie
        I just noticed plummet when perhaps pummel was the word. I hate auto phone corrections.

        We’ll start calling him “Bar Pooh-Bah”.

        It would be appropriate. We know he can trace his ancestry back to a protoplasmal primordial atomic globule.

        A Jewish protoplasmal primordial atomic globule.

        He’s got an old ring to prove it.

    I love how Jim Acosta nailed himself to the cross and the whole world weeps for him because the president called him a jerk…but there is absolutely no outcry about this television station being bombed. I’m against Trump. Very strongly. But I don’t trust some of the people I’m sharing a foxhole with.

    Israeli Jewish society worships violence as the answer to life’s problems. Other people might have filing or Mr Clean. Israeli Jews have violence. Election coming up? 2 teaspoons of savagery in Gaza. Weather a bit sticky? Kill a few « Pallys »

    In 1964 the BBC interviewed a German veteran of WW1…..

    Israel is a thug and thugs fear those who are stronger than them.

    This is why BDS freaks Zionists out
