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.

Zionism is an evangelical GOP issue now.
The trend is your friend

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…..
