So what's the new target after 30 thousands, 40 thousands people need to lost their lives, to meet occupier goal?

They did say the US sanctioned Israel military for human rights abuse Google IDF US Sanctioned

This sanction it's just for public relation, since when that kind of sanction really specific for only one military unit out of how many are there. When sanction go to China or Russia, it will go to the whole military. However for "friendly" ally, it might be only one or two unit, not branch.

Sakurasaki - sanctions are mostly placed on individuals and firms, but I get your point and would be in favor of more sanctions as we are able to assess more as to who did what. These things take time. Even now, we are periodically adding additional sanctions to Russian firms and individuals for their part in the invasion of Ukraine.

With the death of every child Israel creates a family of enemies who will never forgive them. These are not terrorists, they are human beings.

Nobody ever accused democracies of acting quickly, but we get it right eventually. That’s people power.

When sanction being issued usually will have bulk of target, which usually quite long list. However for occupier, US treatment just specifically carefully choose only for one particular military unit.

It's just for a specific unit, not the whole military.

"This is a world devoid of all human values and morals " spoke the grieving mother, clutching her dead 5 year old daughter.

Israel leads the world in this regard.

Devoid of human values and morals.

And the West looks away because Palestinians are not worthy of compassion.

May the Arab nations never forgive nor forget this genocide against women and children by Israel.

No better than Nazi death camps.

Sakurasaki - There will be more, especially as facts come out. You have to remember too that many Americans are still horrified by what happened on 10/7. Again, it takes time in democracies to gain consensus on things and we are still working on those Americans who have a blind spot for Israeli atrocities against Palestinians.

You also have to remember that most Americans, myself included, would not consider the Israelis 'occupiers' for living in Israeli. Gaza and the West Bank are another story, and I can safely say that most Americans don't have sympathy for these ultra-religious settlers who seem hell-bent on taking Palestinian land.

Now, it Israel were at risk of their entire country being overwhelmed in a 10/7-style orgy of violence, well, Americans don't want to see that, either.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

I think 90% of population in Gaza are below 7 years old... That is why when Hamas report the death tolls nearly 80% children.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

Most people here, as elsewhere, are decent people are don't want to see war and conflict. I know that because of past events, there are no easy answers here, and anyone trying to convince you otherwise either has something to sell you or has a rather simplistic understanding of the situation.

It's to slow and carefully pick, so far beside this sanction is only "visa" bans for settler last December. Which just slap in the wrist.

A genocide funded and enabled by an American political class entirely corrupted by AIPAC money. US democracy is dead, its subversion by blood money plain for all to see.

Biden himself has taken $11, 194, 792 from the psychopathic barbarians.

We all saw what happened on 10/7, and most Americans have also seen what the Israelis have been doing to Gaza, at least the ones who care to look.

Every time the Israelis kill a bunch of children, they hurt their own cause.

Now, it Israel were at risk of their entire country being overwhelmed in a 10/7-style orgy of violence, well, Americans don't want to see that, either.

So rather than mitigate risks through bolstering their defences, they decide to carry out October 7th-style attacks every day for 6 months in Gaza...

Even If Israel were to experience another ten October 7ths it wouldnt even come close to balancing the scales.

Israel is Killing women and children due to it's inability to accomplish any of it's war goals and agenda. frustrated IGF is continuing to target the innocent Palestinians as young as 1 month old infants.

Hamas has Outfoxed, Outmaneuvered, and Outperformed the IGF at all levels and all it's capable of now is Committing one genocide after the other.

""The Palestinian death toll from the war is at least 34,049, with 76,901 wounded, the Gaza Health Ministry said, adding that the bodies of 37 people killed by Israeli strikes were taken to hospitals over the past 24 hours. ""

War? That's genocide and massacre, many evidence this happening, same tactic being applied during Yugo conflict, innocent just being target for no reason, except genocide.

Israel blames Hamas for civilian casualties, saying it embeds in the population.

The truth hurts.

And this is a war, so when the Islamic terrorists force children to fight in their terrorist attacks, the results are obvious.

This is a war. Women in children die in wars.

There are many zionist communities settlers on the West Bank.

"About 700,000 Israeli settlers live in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, according to the United Nations' human rights office."

I don't disagree. Probably Americans would have been less viscerally impacted by 10/7 if it had been solely military targets or even rockets/bombs on Israeli civilians, but a whole lot of Americans now view Hamas as the second coming of ISIS the way they seemed to delight in hurting civilians.

If you are going to kill civilians in war, do it from afar.

War is terrible

A truism, but one that doesn't even begin to describe what the Israelis have been perpetrating 24/7 for 6 months on Palestinian civilians. This is no war and everyone knows it, especially those supplying the weapons of war and giving full diplomatic and political cover to the extreme right-wing government leaders of Israel and the generals of the IDF. Aided by the propaganda of the MSM they have been gaslighting us all in concert with the hypocrisy that this mass murder of women and children is not a "plausible genocide", but a "war" comparing the bombing to that of Berlin, Dresden, Hamburg and even Hiroshima to hide the IDF's satanic, stage-managed pattern of extermination by bombing, sniping and starvation after having destroyed all the infrastructure supporting a viable society with the transparent aim of driving Palestinians from the river to the sea and scattering them beyond the borders of an imagined "Greater Israel" into the sands of a diaspora. The proof that this is no war lies in the rubble of Gaza with its mountains of stinking corpses and starving children as well as the ignored howls of grief heard in the West Bank while daily life next door in "the only democracy in the region" goes on as normal (almost).

US and Israel are the same country. They are equally responsible of the murder. It didn’t sanction itself. Only Turkey put sanctions but i would it’s trade with Israel isn’t significant anyway. Europe is also giving full support for the murder of innocent people.
