"Air strikes, rocket attacks push Israel, Gaza into second day of fighting"

When monsters from azovs to zionists murder innocent people, America can be depended upon to stand by them and condemn the victims. The imprisoned Palestinians are arbitrarily attacked with aircraft and current level mass murder weapons and the only response that the Palestinians can make are with cobbled together, homemade bottle-rocket equivalents with their accuracy completely dependent upon random probability rather than sophisticated design. Palestinians, particularly young teenage boys, are murdered routinely by heavily armed and racist zionist thugs whose civilian counterparts often march through the streets yelling "Death to Arabs!". But this is just the evolution from the days of the worst terrorist gangs to ever exist, e.g. The Stern Gang, Likud, and others who terrorized the British disarmed Palestinians for close to fifty years, gasoline bombs into open bedroom windows at night a favorite tactic, before gaining U.S. and British support to openly attack and drive these poor Palestinian People into walled and barbed wired prisons surrounded by bloodthirsty racist and trigger happy guards. ANY resistance shown by brave Palestinians is immediately announced to the world as "ARAB TERRORISM!" and DEATH rains down on women and children.

Even the NAZIs didn't bomb their own Concentration Camps. The headline on this article deceptively suggests 'fighting' as though the Palestinians, armed largely with rock slings, had any chance at all but the truth is one-sided slaughter. Prisoners in their own country, imprisoned by European invaders who are supported by MONEY from racist sympathizers and the U.S. government and an almost wholly owned media which extols the monsters and condemns their victims. Bald faced LIES convince the shallow brained and disinterest, as seen in the U.S. and UK circa 1939, blind most others, to atrocity. But, THAT is Humanity, isn't it?

Read the last line. Prime Minister Yair Lapid is up for relection this fall. Nothing like a little war to boost your chances, is there? That warfare 'magic' of theirs works fine, every time!

If I was a Palestinian child, I would save all my pocket money to buy a us-supplied Ukrainian anti tank or air missile from the dark net, and use it to protect my family and my land.

Thank god for the IDF, who protect Jerusalem and Israelis around the country from radical Islamic terrorism.

Israel start a new conflict in the largest prison in the world (Gaza) and the Palestinians launch rockets to defend themselves as best they can.

The crimes Israel commit against these people is legendary and ongoing. Time to sanction Israel and boycott its trade. Horrible government in Israel is as bad as the CCP.

Illegal and unnecessary wars are crimes. Just like Putin gave his lame excuses to invade Ukraine, just like W gave his lame excuses to invade Iraq (which made things in the Middle east the ungodly mess that it is now), now the Israeli PM is making up his excuses for this crap. And like Nutty Yahoo with his missile war last year, this is just another exercise of ego during an election year.

'Ooooh, I'm bad! I'm bad! You know it! And the whole world has to answer right now, somebody has to say -WHO'S BAD?' And in elementary school we used to counteract with, 'Bad looking and bad smelling' and the Israeli government is just that. Here's the proof and they don't care about the safety of the Israeli people either. The PM has mud on his face, he's a big disgrace.

Any day Hezbollah is going to open the gates of hell and pound Israeli cities with thousands upon thousands of guided missiles. Israel, as they learned the hard way in 2006, is powerless to stop Hezbollah if they choose to do sol. It is in all likelihood up to Iran, whom Hezbollah owes their allegiance to and not to the government in Beirut, to make the call to pull the trigger or not. The rest of Lebanon would be dragged along their official government utterly helpless to prevent such a war.

Out of curiosity what do you think would have happened in Japan had the US occupied the country for 55 years after the end or WWII, prohibiting the Japanese from having a sovereign airport or seaport, forcing Japanese off their land and giving it to Americans who get the best homes, the best jobs while Japanese are confined to being laborers of servants of the Americans. Do you think that might provoke a backlash, even organized violence to get rid of the Americans?

Israel has no-one to blame but themselves for the militant opposition they face. They have no legal right to any of the occupied territories. None. Not one single square centimeter. As a land owner myself I know I would resort to armed resistance of someone told me like so many Arab families in the Occupied Territories are told that I had to surrender my land and my home so a foreigner of some preferred religion could take my land from me because I adhered to the wrong, non-preferred religion. It is an offense to everything that is right and just. It is also a war crime to do so under international law.

Hamas are as incompetent as they are murderous.

They launched a missile towards Jerusalem from a mosque in Jabaliya. It almost immediately turned back and landed at the same mosque killing 5 children.

Once again, Palestinian Arabs pay the price for radical Islamic terrorism.

On 29 July 2022, Amjad Nashat Abu ‘Alia (15) was killed with a live bullet that penetrated his back and exited his chest after an Israeli settler opened fire at him from a distance of less than 60 meters during IOF’s suppression of a peaceful protest against settlement activity near the eastern entrance to Al-Mughayyir village. According to eyewitnesses’ statement, a group of Israeli settlers, under IOF’s protection, spread in the area, where the peaceful protest was organized, and assaulted the protestors along with IOF.

 

On the same day, Hussain Hasan Qawareeq (59), a person with disability (mental disorder), from Nablus, died in an Israeli hospital after succumbing to wounds he sustained on 26 July 2022 when he was shot by IOF at Huwara checkpoint that is established at Nablus’s southeastern entrance. IOF claimed that Qawareeq did not obey their orders at the time, and they took him to an Israeli hospital to receive treatment

Just some background information about the situation (sourced from the PCHRGAZA organization website)

And we all know this organization would NEVER lie about the victims and the circumstances they died under.

Its simply never happened before....

...And the US/ UK govt remain passive observers on this while selectively brewing up sanctions etc. on other countries

One reason I cite PCHRGAZA is because whenever the Israeli regime goes on a murder spree, the PCHRGAZA data matches the numbers that Japan Today, BBC, CNN, and the UN report. Their reports are so granular you can use them to use them to figure out whether those news organizations consider police to be civilians or combatants, what age they consider to be the point a child becomes an adult etc

On the other hand, not even American politicians or media consider the numbers the Israeli regime claims.

To say that the US/UK governments are passive on this is ridiculous given their long deep support for the Axis of Antidemocracies

It's been about 55 years or more. Plenty of time for Israel to either let the Gazans and West Bankers have their own sovereign state or integrate them with equal full Israeli citizenship.

Even the loudmouth troublemaker Qaddafy suggested the idea of an 'Israe-tine'. So what's the deal? How long must this crap continue on?

Not so passive. Many Republicans are pushing for laws that would make it illegal to criticize Israel or calling for boycotts and sanctions against them. Free speech? Pfffttt.

Hamas, the Islamist group which controls the enclave, said the children were among the dead from a blast close to the Jabalya refugee camp and blamed Israel. The Israeli military denied it was responsible, saying the explosion was caused by a failed Islamic Jihad rocket launch.

Sad that the Palestinian Arab militants kill their own people in their zeal to fire rockets indiscriminately into civilian populated areas in Israel.

Bad analogy. Japan is a country. There never was a country called Palestine, or Gaza. The Palestinian Arabs did have a chance for their own country but they rejected the plan because they did not want Israel to have any land.

And, the West Bank for example, was annexed by Trans Jordan until 1967--did the Palestinian Arabs complain that their "land" was being occupied?

Very simple--Israel is a democratic country trying to live in peace with a terrorist led regime living on its doorstep.

Yes indeed. We all know these anti-semitic left wing organizations parrot whatever the Palestinian Authority reports.

Isn't it funny that they always report "errors" in their reporting a week later when no one is watching.

You cite the Palestinian Authority and terrorists because thats the narrative you want to believe. It has nothing to do with the truth.
