The worst government Israel ever had, God always uses the unfaithfulness of strong leaders by hardening their hearts to become blinded by the superior knowledge of wisdom that is in a inferior state
Netanyahu, you who with surgical precision slaughter innocents, the young and the old, you who have cruelly blockaded Gaza for years, starving it of necessities, you who deprive Palestinians of more and more of their land, their water, their crops, their trees — you care about life?
The longest ongoing ethnic cleansing operation in the recent and present centuries, the ongoing attempt to destroy Palestinian nationhood.
Israel does not want a just peace.
The Palestinians use tunnels? So did my heroes, the poorly armed fighters of the Warsaw Ghetto.
Shelling of the hospital as well as the "continuing bombardment of civilian homes" in Gaza "add to the list of possible war crimes that demand an urgent independent international investigation."
Every one of these incidents must be properly and independently investigated,"
Anyone who has witnessed (as I have) the destruction of homes and businesses in Gaza or of vital roads, utilities and bridges in Lebanon can see that in none of these wars have Israeli commanders abided by the requirement of the laws of war that they take care not to inflict unnecessary harm on civilians or on objects vital to the survival and well-being of civilians.
There will be BDS
A Hamas rocket hit and destroyed a house in Yahoud, a town only a mile from Ben Gurion Airport in Israel on Tuesday, raising severe alarm in among the international airlines and leading most of them to cancel flights to Tel Aviv.
If a rocket can land one mile from the airport, it can land on a plane at the airport just as easily.
In essence, Hamas by targeting the airport (it wasn’t trying to hit a house in Yahoud but rather the runway at Ben Gurion International) has hit upon a new strategy, of imposing willy nilly an international boycott on Israeli aviation.
Israel is vulnerable economically unless it makes peace with the Palestinians by giving up its settler-colonial enterprise.
The Argentinians joined neighboring Brazil and Chile in condemning the use of force by Israel in Gaza, marking a sharp contrast from previous battles between Israeli and pro-Palestinian forces in the past.
Both Brazil and Chile have deep economic and military ties with Israel, giving more weight to each nation’s condemnation of the attacks in Gaza.
INFO ON TAP
Lieutenant-Colonel Dolev Keidar, 38, was the commander of the Geffen Battalion. He was killed by an antitank missile when responding to terrorists infiltrating into Israel Monday, July 21.
After his death, Israeli television replayed clips from a 2009 documentary Keidar took part in, “Waiting for him,” about the families of officers in the IDF and their struggles, Keidar lived in Modiin with his family.
It is doubtful Hamas will be willing to (or even can) pursue an agreement that sets as a condition long-lasting peace on the Gazan front.
