Stop the genocide!!..

50 or so countries at the ICJ lining up to level accusations at Israel, including genocide.

Other posters suggesting the "west " supported Israel and Arab states remained silent.

No...that's a wrong observation.

Another successful mission by Israel, getting 48 terrorists.

If Hamas would release the hostages, and if they along with the other Islamic terrorists groups would stop shooting rockets at civilians in Israel, then this could all stop.

It's up to the terrorists.

48 deaths does not equal 48 dead terrorists.

It's not a computer game.

Israeli strikes in Gaza kill 48 as fears mount over humanitarian crisis and West Bank violence

There is a humanitarian crisis in Israel. Over 100,000 people have been displaced from their homes because of attacks by Hamas and other terrorist groups.

So Israel has to keep up with its international law compliant self defense measures to prevent the genocide being inflicted on Israel and eliminate the terrorists.

US Muslim and Youth vote hardening their NO BIDEN VOTE, given growing GAZA Genocide. Maybe PM Bibbi's a Trump surrogate? You can't make this stuff up, pure insanity making the WORLD much more dangerous.

"" But Gantz, a former military chief and defense minister, repeated his pledge that unless Hamas agrees to release the remaining hostages, Israel will launch a ground offensive into Gaza’s southernmost town, Rafah, ""

If netanyahu and his war mongers move into Rafah it will accomplish NOTHING, the Palestinians have nothing to lose and Israel can kiss these hostage goodbye.

The Palestinians will still be their, Israel will still be there, and so will Hamas. Israel has an opportunity to get these hostage back alive which is a miracle considering all the killings, shelling, air strikes, and destruction.

Israel used these people as human shields. Intentionally putting them between the IDF and their enemies, knowing full well that enemy missiles could possibly misfire and land on these settlements. Any displacement or even deaths are on Israel. Israeli government of savage childmurderers is 100% responsible.

"" Right To Resist, Wikipedia

In international law, the right to resist is closely related to the principle of self-determination. It is widely recognized that a right to self-determination arises in situations of colonial domination, foreign occupation, and racist regimes that deny a segment of the population political participation.""

Here it is, call the Palestinians whatever anyone wishes to call them, they have this right until the Occupation of Palestine ENDS.

If Hamas would release the hostages, and if they along with the other Islamic terrorists groups would stop shooting rockets at civilians in Israel, then this could all stop. - Jik7y

The Israeli occupation began long before the formation of Hamas and there are no hostages or rockets being fried from the West Bank but more than 300 Palestinians have been killed and Israel's decades long illegal occupation and annexing of Palestinian land show no signs of stopping. Infact, quite the opposite. Illegal settlements (i.e. Jewish colonies) are expanding at their fastest rate in years.

There is no incentive for the Palestinians to give up any form of resistance because as history demonstrates it means a return to the status quo. Oppresion, apartheird, starvation and illegal landgrabs.

"Terrorism" & "Terrorist"are debased descriptions of the resistance to the razing of Gaza and the sadistic destruction of a people treated like vermin. St Ronnie's support of "freedom fighter" in Nicaragua long ago learned the world that one man's "freedom fighter" can be another man's "terrorist".

I dont think Hamas displaced anyone in Gaza....its the actions of the IDF.

And the numbers greatly exceed 100,000....more than 10 times that number actually

And Hamas fights on.

Hamas has genocide of the Jews written into their Charter.

Israel defending itself doesn't come near the definition of genocide.

Jordan occupied the West Bank for almost 20 years.

People--get your facts straight.

You're either with the terrorists or you're against them and in support of Israel's right to exist as a country and to defend itself as it has been doing.

The "with us or against us " argument is a minimization of complex facts.

I'll leave determinations of "genocide " to lawyers in the Hague.

"Proportionality " in "defending itself " is also a term in laws of warefare.

This too being considered in the Court, but I note many hard Israeli supporting nations including Australia, UK and USA are saying the Israeli response has gone too far.

Israel is a "settler state " project facing the problem of what do with the native Arab population.

It is not right that Israel and Jewish interests are seen as privileged over others.

Israel will have to take off its perpetual angry face and negotiate.

And Hamas no longer has "genocide of Jews written in their charter ", if they ever did .

They have a revised charter that allows a 2 state solution....google "Hamas Charter "

Hamas does oppose Zionist expansionism in Arab lands though.

If anyone notices a teeny tiny pro-Hamas bent in AP reports, know this;

AP is being sued by the families of Nova Music Festival victims.

AP photographers participated in the October 7th massacre.

"Photojournalist" Hassan Eslaiah posed for photographs with terrorist Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar after the atrocities.

Israel will have to take off its perpetual angry face and negotiate.

"Why are those Jew so angry?? We only murdered, tortured and raped 1400 of them. And it was so long ago. Like 4 whole months"

"Horrifying new report into October 7 rapes reveals how survivors walked through 'an apocalypse of bodies' missing body parts, while one victim had a GRENADE inserted into her genitals - and details 'sadistic' methods Hamas used to maximise suffering"

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-13108147/report-sexual-assault-israel-october-7.html

"Hamas terrorists’ ‘sadistic’ sexual violence included shoving knives inside Israeli rape victims’ genitals before execution: report"

https://nypost.com/2024/02/21/world-news/hamas-shoved-knives-inside-israeli-rape-victims-report/

No ceasefire. No mercy.

Israel must continue until Hamas is dead.
