One thousand, three hundred and forty nine people were hit by live fire yesterday.

It was a massacre.

Of the sixty Palestinians killed, an eight month old child died from gas inhalation.

They will get away with it all as they own practically every elected official in all walks of Governments in the USA.

They can kill who they want, when they want, and in any number they want.

History has shown us that much.

We live in very sad times for humanity not only in Palestine, but across the middle east.

Viva Gaza, Viva Palestina
1930s all over again except this time it's the US/Israel who are the c***ts.

"U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley walked out of a Security Council meeting on Tuesday when the Palestinian envoy began to speak, just hours after she praised Israel for acting with “restraint” in handling the protests in Gaza."

"The Security Council was holding an emergency meeting to discuss the violence in Gaza. Israeli forces killed at least 62 Palestinians protesting along the border fence on Monday, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza. That number included several children, one of whom was just 8 months old. More than 3,100 others were wounded."

Trump moved the embassy to please 2 key support groups. Zionists and evangelicals. The evangelicals need a base in Jerusalem from where they can be hoovered up to heaven to meet Jesus when the world ends. No Jews will be allowed into heaven. According to the evangelicals.

That's a hypocrisy I can't get over. The Christian fundamentalists are some of the most ardent Zionists on earth and at the same time some of the biggest anti-Semites.

Christianity has always been the enemy of Judaism, imo.  The theology supported anti Semites. Things changed a but after WW2 but the evangelicals wouldn't be very progressive.

Israel is not interested in anything remotely like peace. What they want and are doing with full support of US is create the situation where the Palestinian's have no choice but to fight back.....then that gives them the 'green light' to continue with annihilation of the Palestinian people. Very few of us would have experienced anything like the displacement the Palestinian people have endured. What choices  do the people have? The silence of Arab neighbours, especially KSA, exposes the myth of 'Muslim brotherhood '. The blame lies with US......they have condoned the building of illegal settlements, land grab, and displacement of the Palestinian people, and the veto of any challenge at UN to do something about it.
I despair, so I can only imagine how the Palestinian people feel. During 30+ years of troubles we never experienced anything like it.

Its the feeling of helplessness, watching the continued torture

Other than getting off your arse and doing something about it, there really is nothing you can do, no lobbying or protest march seems to be making any impact.. but a quick check on the internet and the death toll is far far less than some of the other conflicts that get no headlines, whats so ever!

If Syria had murdered 60 people at a peaceful protest I bet the drones and war planes would have been over Damascus before the day was out.

It's the hypocrisy of the US and its spineless allies that gets me.

Time to stop buying Israeli shit and shit from companies set up in Israel;

East German border guards killed fewer than 60 people on the border between 1961 and 1989. Israel is responsible for the humanitarian crisis in Gaza. It should be paying reparations.

She's walked out on previous occasions. It's a sign of great maturity to leave the room when people you disagree with speak.

Another trick she likes to use is holding up photos of dead children. She didn't use that tactic this time though for some reason.

Any sign of Coveney deporting any Israeli diplomats? Maybe he only does that when there's no clear reason to do it.

Israel has no long term strategy to deal with the Palestinians.  Apartheid will turn US Jews away from Israel.
Sanctions look inévitable.

What's happening is shameful and indefensible. There's no justification for this. It saddens me that our government hasn't sent the Israeli ambassador home. I also feel the election of Trump has emboldened Israel and they know they can do anything and his administration will back them up. Sad times.
