Due to immense pressure from pro-Palestinian activists, many Democrats are beginning to turn and announced that they will vote against the huge $90 billion dollar weapons package.

They need pressure not conscience and common sense to do that, what a real shame.

Conscience is what leads them to support Ukraine rather than bowing to activists with no knowledge of history.

Due to immense pressure from pro-Palestinian activists, many Democrats are beginning to turn and announced that they will vote against the huge $90 billion dollar weapons package.

Democrats didn't waver in the Senate and it should be much easier for House members to remain steadfast in defending America's interests.

Palestinians wait for humanitarian aid on a beachfront in Gaza City, Gaza Strip, on Sunday.

There needs to be a post-scarcity culture that can address these offenses against humanity.

It is clear the Israeli government, or Palestinian, or UNHCR, or Saudi/Emirate , or American administrations cannot and will not address it.

Netanyahu is trying yet to torpedo this latest mediation by making such comments on CBS and other channels so he can continue with his Genocide and retake Gaza.

But he can't, and now he is doing all he can to make it as difficult as possible for Hamas to accept any deal, Hams and the U.S. already caught on to Netanyahu games and are ignoring him by continuing with the deal with guarantees from the U.S., France, England, Egypt, even the EU, and Qatar.

Last night thousands of Israeli's REJECT Netanyahu and his government and demanded an early re-election, Netanyahu days in office are numbered and the world is watchin him.

Individuals who have suffered severe childhood trauma very often pass on their suffering and inflict trauma on the next generation and beyond. The unprecedented in kind and scale slaughter of innocents in Gaza goes far beyond the biblical atrocities perpetrated by the wicked King Herod searching for the baby Jesus (in tunnels?) and leaves a shocked world searching for a comparison in recent memory to measure the barbarity and sadistic cruelty we are all watching in disbelief and real time. All thinking people with any knowledge of 20th century history will unavoidably be able to identify a man whose ruthlessness matches that of Netanyahu and, who was similarly driven by a exclusionary racist ideology and an expansionist policy to remove an ethnic group living on the land he coveted. That said, who can forget the man who failed to make the phone to stop all this killing? History will not absolve him and all the others who played their loathsome part in their odious betrayal of our humanity.

In psychology there is a thing called ""the compass of shame "" and it a "compass like " graph showing the different responses people have to avoid feeling shame.

Attack others is a classic response of avoidance.

We see it on a national scale with Israel .

The UN finds a plausible case for the ongoing genocide of Palestinians.

Israel finds the UNRWA is infiltrated with Hamas.

South Africa brings actions to the UN.

Israel drags out racist tropes about that country.

Brasil's Pres. rips into Israel.

Posters here, encouraged by Israel lobby maybe, lob weird claims about Brasil and Nazi's.

Israel disinformation has been rightly ridiculed.

The Hamas calendar, {just a calendar },ect.

My personal fave was the "Hamas bunker " with weapons neatly stored as if in an IKEA photo shoot.

AI generated images of guns with barrels at the front and back of the weapon {possibly an idea worthy of examination but not in use today " }and the gun with two barrels and two ammo clips.

Yes...propaganda is the main weapon of choice for Israel but it''s application is woeful

If this is not genocide, the word has no meaning. 1000 children a week being killed.

Since the West is funding and arming Israel, Western leaders in the US, UK, Germany, etc. are complicit in war crimes. if they were (rightly) held personally responsible, this would stop in an instant.

It is amazing how the Pro-Palestinian group rarely, if ever, acknowledges the atrocities perpetrated on the innocent Israeli women and children on October 7, and probably continue now to whatever hostages remain alive. Decapitation of infants, burning babies alive, rapes of women (where are the women's rights groups-the silence is deafening?). If these things happened to the Palestinian women and children, you would never hear the end of it. But Israeli women and children as victims, I guess it is no big deal. Also, for the Pro-Palestinian group, by supporting Hamas (which is what happens if Israel does not attempt to kill them) you are also supporting the killing of gays by Hamas, which undoubtedly they do. Hamas, Islam in general, hates gays as much as they hate Israel. Don't you recall the throwing off of roofs of gay people? But maybe now with not too many tall buildings left in Gaza, this particular way of death to gays won't be a problem. But they will find other ways.

Israel has to keep up the pressure against these terrorists and their supporters.

Hamas burned and beheaded babies, raped the elderly and disabled, and so naturally this war is a consequence. People in Gaza raise their children to hate the Jews, they send their children to terrorist summer camps, and they store munitions and weapons in their homes for use by Hamas to attack Israeli civilians.

Israel has a duty to fight the genocide and to eliminate the terrorists who have committed multiple war crimes.

No mercy!

And for those suddenly concerned about the babies, children, and civilians, head over to the below as I mentioned earlier:

And for those suddenly concerned about the babies, children, and civilians, head over to the below as I mentioned earlier:

You realise that the main reason the situation in Gaza has caused so many protests is because many western governments are actively backing Israels ongoing slaughter of the Gazan people. Still, even after 4 months, The US and its allies are giving Israel everything they want with no strings attached.

What is happening in Sudan is terrible, but protesting to your government wont have as much of an impact because our governments dont have the leverage to enforce lasting solutions.

"terrorist summer camps "....ROFLMAO.

Gold !

Israel has compulsory military service.

Who do you think is the enemy for Israeli servicemen and women ?

Then complete killing Hamas. Do not stop.
