Israel Ramping Up Violence Against Palestinians

(1/14) > >>

Shiranu:
Just a few days after the U.N. loosely called Israel's eviction of Palestinians a potential war crime and a week or two after the Israeli police beat Christians attempting to attend the Church of the Holy Sepulchure... they decided fuck it, lets ramp up the violence even more.

--- Quote ---At least 20 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli air raids on the besieged Gaza Strip, according to the Palestinian health ministry, after Hamas launched rockets from the coastal territory towards Israel. The Gaza health ministry told Al Jazeera on Monday that 20 people, including children, had been killed in the attacks.
The attacks were carried out after Hamas fired several rockets at Israel, following the expiration of the group’s ultimatum demanding Israel stand down forces from the Al Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem.
Earlier on Monday tensions at the compound, the third holiest in Islam which is also revered by Jews, escalated with more than 300 Palestinians wounded when Israeli police stormed the mosque, firing rubber bullets, stun grenades and tear gas.

For context of this most recent escalation, Muslim attendants of the Al Aqsa were in the middle of prayer when Israeli police burst in and began firing tear gas and rubber bullets inside the mosque. Palestinians than began to swarm to the mosque because there was a schedule parade of ultra-nationalist Jews scheduled for today.

In response, the Israeli government suppressed these protesters (at their own mosque) and injured over 200, with 60-some in critical condition... and then in retaliation to a Hamas attack that injured zero decided to bomb the Gaza Strip and killed at least 20, with 9 of them being children.
The Palestinian's had good reason to fear this ultra-nationalist parade as well, because this was the Zionist response to a tree being set on fire outside the holy mosque (imagine if Muslims were out on the street celebrating like this when Notre Dame was on fire to get some perspective)...



The Israelis are attacking everyone now; Muslim, Christian, doesn't matter, and when you listen to the Ultra-Orthodox, Zionists... they truly believe they are "God's people", and when they say that they full mean that they are ethnically superior to everyone... and until the rest of the world calls them the racist pieces of shit they are they are just going to continue to escalate this violence.

But hey, we send $3.8 billion to them each year, so they have to be the good guys...

Nobody's going to call them racist, the ADL decides what's racist. If you object to that you're anti-semitic.

Shiranu:
Possible use of white phosphorus by the Israelis, of course on civilian targets.

Shiranu:
Still no condemnation of Israeli war crimes by the President, however a representative of the U.S. government did condemn Hamas's actions and declared Israel had every right to defend themselves.

Of course, when asked by multiple reporters if the Palestinians also had a right to self-defense... he just couldn't bring himself to agree with that.

Ethnically superior, eh? Sounds familiar.
