What?

So you're saying that Hamas aren't an existential threat to Israel.

They absolutely are a threat.

How many hostages have been rescued? How many of Hamas leaders have been captured? Why are attacks by Hamas in areas cleared by the IDF escalating? Why is Hamas still able to launch attacks on Israel? Why is everyone from the UN to the ICJ turning on Israel? 

Unorganized, losing ground, need new leadership. I could care less if the world turns against Israel, they can go it alone, won’t stop them, nor should it, the UN and ICJ won’t do Jack.

You didn't lose count, there is no count.

There is a count, the IDF retired a lot of the top senior level terrorists. More to go. Again, the Palestinians won’t get the Jews from their land. Just won’t happen.

Add that number to those living as second class citizens in Israel itself.

How are Palestinians with Israeli citizenship, living in Israel “second class citizens”? Can you please point out the rights that Palestinian Israeli citizens don’t have that other Israeli citizens have?

And to pre empt comments by the shills, it doesnt matter was "deals " you say were offered in the past....we are now in the present.

This is very true. So by that logic Israel has a right to exist within its current borders, correct?

The Hamas officials — Ismail Haniyeh, Yahya Sinwar and Mohammed Deif — are accused of planning and instigating eight war crimes and crimes against humanity, among them extermination, murder, taking hostages, rape and torture.

Im happy that this myth of “Hamas not raping anyone” can finally be put to rest

And yet, they still can’t get the Israeli’s out of their Jewish homeland. When they do that I’ll eat my words. - bass4funk

How many millions Palestinians live in the occupied west bank ,Gaza, and occupied east Jerusalem.

Add that number to those living as second class citizens in Israel itself.

I believe the total is around 7 million people.

It is inevitable that a deal will have to be made .....

And the USA cant continue it's hypocrisy of supporting ICJ in matters relating to Russia and Putin, while condemning ICJ in matters relating to Israel.

And to pre empt comments by the shills, it doesnt matter was "deals " you say were offered in the past....we are now in the present.

Another day, another disgusting war crime. Wake up everyone and see them for the disgusting murderers they have become.

But they’re winning,

How many hostages have been rescued? How many of Hamas leaders have been captured? Why are attacks by Hamas in areas cleared by the IDF escalating? Why is Hamas still able to launch attacks on Israel? Why is everyone from the UN to the ICJ turning on Israel?

how many jihadists have been killed? I lost count.

You didnt lose count, there is no count.

Lol. What a stand-up guy.

Absolutely

The IDF is a joke.

But they’re winning, so how many jihadists have been killed? I lost count.

Just look at them getting owned over and again by a militia rabble armed with homemade explosives.

And yet, they still can’t get the Israeli’s out of their Jewish homeland. When they do that I’ll eat my words.

The killings of tens of thousands of civilians are considered collateral damage by Netanyahu and his war cabinet.

War is hard

The ICC considers it a war crime

And?

Push them hard enough and they will just level the place with air strikes.

They did that, and it didnt work. Almost like the only people Israel has killed are civilians who dont have special tunnels to hide in.

Palestinian medics say Israeli airstrike kills 22 in Rafah

Why would we believe anything the Palestinians say? But let's take this at face value. Okay, 22 people died. Add that to Hamas's responsibility.

What's going to be interesting is how certain commenters are going to react when someone (or a coalition of someones) rolls in and starts 'kidnapping' 'innocent Israelis' (and killing those who don't immediately lie face down in the debris of their bombed out homes) and leaving them cuffed, untreated, crowded in hot stuffy cells until the ICC court can try them.

Boy it would be a shame if all of your heroes in the region were completely powerless.

I didnt realise that this was a dedicated safezone. Israels depravity knows no bounds.

The airstrike was reported hours after Hamas fired a barrage of rockets from Gaza that set off air raid sirens

well, Israel is doing perfectly legal by self-defense. If the terrorists provoke the people, and then they expect Israel to just sitting silent and being the sitting duck for you?

Most useless military in the world. Even Hamas had a better civilian to military ratio on October 7th.

NAILED IT!!

Never back down, and never give in, the IDF must push through. Get as many fighters as possible.

Dear Bibi, so how is that " Complete Victory " going?

6 ( +10 / -4 )

...footage from the scene showed heavy destruction. The Israeli army said it was unaware of anything occurring in the area.

Again, it's just our "lying eyes". After almost 8 months of killing and gaslighting the world the word of the IDF and Zionists is not worth even half a shekel. No decent human being can accept the bestial treatment they and their supporters in the West have perpetrated on the people of Gaza. The criminals working in the governments responsible for the bloodbath in Gaza and the West Bank will leave an indelible stain on the pages of history for future generations to read with revulsion.

The most moral army in the world continues to slaughter kids, while the White House keeps sending them the weapons to do it. What will it take for Biden to stop enabling this genocide?

Hamas just added one or possibly more IDF soldier hostage to it's collection.

IDF will just count as KIA unless Hamas show video evidence

Videos emerging of infants with their heads missing from the attack. The whole world will eventually become radicalised against Israel.

Does Bibi really thinks he can overwhelm or as he put it "finish Hamas" ?

It sure look like that both sides have adapted so well and this so called "War" of hatred and Extermination will carry on for as long as it may take to prove a point.

Bibi will Never accomplish his goals for as long as he keeps attacking Innocent children, women, and infants, it will only create more Hate and Anger.

More than ever, Gaza is becoming the new recruiting ground for future Hamas Fighters for generations to come due to Bibi's actions.

Palestinian medics said 22 people were killed in an Israeli airstrike Sunday on the southern Gaza city of Rafah that hit tents for displaced people.

Another low for Israel.

War criminals!

Hear! Hear!

Hamas fires useless missiles and Israel drops 2000 pound bombs on refuges tents in areas designated by Israel as a “humanitarian area.”

Way to go Israel!!

Jews are fighting among themselves in Israel, even some of their hatred of Palestinian, cannot unite them ,it will eventually divide them,

Semite, name given in the 19th century to a member of any people who speak one of the Semitic languages, a family of languages spoken primarily in parts of western Asia and Africa. The term therefore came to include Arabs, Akkadians, Canaanites, Hebrews, some Ethiopians (including the Amhara and the Tigrayans), and Aramaean tribes.

So "Semitic " is a linguistic term.

Interesting how this word has been appropriated by one group who, adding the prefix "anti " are able to expand the repertoire of their victimology.

As to the article....bombing tents now ....Jesus wept
