Fighto!

Some pretty grizzly images accompanying this article.

Maybe we can use one of them as the main picture next time to reflect the ongoing hell that must be life in Gaza.

I can’t see how killing tens of thousands of innocent civilians and destroying homes makes Israelis safer.

All Israel is doing is causing opposition to its injustice.

Agree with you and steve- its not making them safer. And in fact the article says

The foreign ministers of Saudi Arabi, Egypt, Jordan, Qatar, the Palestinian Authority and Turkey were in Washington on Friday, pressing the Biden administration to drop its opposition to a cease-fire call and saying the war threatens to destabilize the region.

This could very well be a last ditch effort to stop the carnage before all hell breaks loose. A regional conflict would quickly become a war of attrition and many are saying that it could spell the end of Israel.

Gathered and stripped their prisoner? Whose order is that? What inspiration they were based on? That happened in the past by cartel and also second world war, now in the middle east.

" In other developments, the U.N. Security Council was to vote later Friday in an emergency session on a resolution put forward by the United Arab Emirates calling for an immediate cease-fire. Secretary-General Antonio Gutteres told the council that Gaza is at “a breaking point” and “there is a high risk of the total collapse of the humanitarian support system." The U.S. signaled it would veto the resolution."

Amid the ongoing carnage the White House vetoes efforts to stop the slaughter of Gaza civilians. Biden administration has destroyed whatever high moral ground / authority US claimed to have on the world stage. Shame on them.

"To Hamas leaders: A life for a life, an eye for an eye and whoever started is to blame. If you punish, then punish with the like of that with which you were afflicted,” the leaflet read, cobbling together a popular Arabic saying with a verse from the Muslim holy book, the Quran"

Except Israel is not taking an eye for eye, life for a life, it is taking hundreds of lives for one. 70% of them children and women.

Gathered and stripped their prisoner....What inspiration they were based on?

Suicide bombing with bombs taped to the bomber's body concealed under the clothes is kind of a thing in that region, in case you weren't aware.

All Israel is doing is causing opposition to its injustice.

I believe the aim is show the Gazans the consequences of supporting or turning a blind eye to Hamas all these years, allowing it to set up its military operations in and near schools and hospitals.

@JeffLee in case you weren't aware what happened in that region in several decades, which lead some group of people really desperate doing that atrocities.

The aim? If that's the case what's your explanation of babies, press, hospital that being targeted?

So far number of press that being victim of indiscriminate killing almost reach 100, what is the aim?

Title should read “Israel tortures Palestinian men rounded up from Northern Gaza”… they’re fixed it!

Why are the lead pictures always about the “poor” Israelis?? They have slaughtered 17000 people, 70% of which are women and children! When are the MSM going to start reporting the true nature of this genocide??

Rounding up all males over 16 and of a "fighting age" has been done in many conflicts and often indicates a nefarious purpose on the part of the occupying forces. The optics of humans stripped to their underpants and publicly humiliated are bad and bring back unpleasant memories of Vietnam and WW2. The vicious cruelty of the "Holocaust" folk witnessed daily by the world should be a wake-up call to all of us to examine our consciences and hold the feet of our politicians who still support this obscenity to the fire to make them feel some of the pain and pay for their hypocrisy and inhumanity.

And the US used its veto power on the UN Security Council to block a resolution calling for a cease-fire in Gaza.

How many US made bullets, artillery shells and missiles were used to kill Palestinians today?

The "only democracy in the region "" sure does a good line on detention without trial...

We have been fed this line by western media and governments for years but if any western government did what Israel did and does they would be labeled fascist!

Long before October 7th Israel was killing Palestinians 2009 to October 7th over 6000 half being women and children 1000 from the west bank and 2500 in not conflict times.

Israel's population is 21% Arab not counting the occupied territory but they only have 8% representation in the Knesset and have never had an Arab minister not even on the Arab affairs committee until 2023 where one was finally given a token spot

The Arab Israeli population are mostly in poverty, limited on jobs including government positions in some cases using the supposed "security" laws.

Palestinians live in ghettos surrounded by Israeli military and settlers that ride shotgun over their lives, deciding what goes in and what goes out, what they can and cannot build including destroying clean water supplies/cisterns built with UN cooperation because Israel didn't give permission.

These are ghettos where the lower form live according to Netanyahu and his ilk and now like the Ghettos before the IDF is now cleaning them out in the same way!

Israel is not a democracy, it is a nationalistic, race superior belief, ethnic purity fascist government!

Once they finish with Gaza they will find a way to cleans the West Bank then expel their own Arab population and by that time it will be too late.

We know this because Netanyahu has given dozens of speeches say exactly the above, the goal is a purely Jewish State and his coalition partners are even more radical calling for the forces expulsion of all Arabs now including Israeli citizens.

And this is the start of the Israel final solution to the Arab/Palestinian problem and obtaining Lebensraum!

They raped Israeli women, so I guess it's sdmy on the menu for them!

This is NOT a war, it is a GENOCIDE at the so called FREE WORLD watch.

A war is fought between two armies, this is a mass scale killing of a certain race and people who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time with NO place to run to or hide.

The Palestinians are being Slaughtered by the Israeli military machines on daily bases 24/7 NONSTOP and the world is watching it. 17,000 dead and counting while the UNSC is dead SILENT,

what will the world do when these children and premature babies return from heaven and start asking??? BUT WHY? I pray that those who are directing and aiding this GENOCIDE be brought to justice and face the ultimate judge soon.

Whatever "moral authority" the US may have once claimed claimed died in South East Asia 50 years ago. Biden could end the Gaza genocide with one phone call but he won't. The US and its vassal states are genocide enablers.

The poet, writer and professor Refaat Alareer and his family were deliberately targeted and murdered by the IDF in Gaza.

This is what the world needs to be witness to.

Israel standing up to terrorism and defending itself all out. This will be the end to this kind of terrorism in that region.

All of these defensive missions are being run in accordance with international law, and with the care to limit civilian casualties as much as possible, and so it has been a success so far.

And it is a good thing Israel is allowing its terrorist prisoners to be photographed while they are in their underwear so that it can be seen they have no injuries, and are being treated humanely.

Contrast with Hamas, who raped young girls, the elderly, and the disabled, and burned and beheaded babies, and blew up families in their own homes.

This is what happens to those terrorists and their supporters, and rightfully so.

Justice is being served on a daily basis.

And the article main photo is about a soldier being held hostage as if it Justifies killing 17,000 human beings of which are 70% Women, Children, and Premature babies!!!?

Israel standing up to terrorism

Funny before October 7th Israel raided Palestinian area taking 6000 and never seen again

Contrast with Hamas, who raped young girls, the elderly, and the disabled, and burned and beheaded babies, and blew up families in their own homes.

You mean like settlers do in the West Bank?!

The Israelis can commit atrocities en masse and in plain sight with impunity simply because they enjoy the protection of America's imprimatur and moolah. Netanyahu has broken all the crockery of international law and humanitarian values with impunity because the greenbacks have his back, no matter that the USA lost all moral authority when it invaded Indo-China causing "collateral damage" to 3,000,000+ lives. We will have to wait for the smoke to clear before we can see what damage he has done to the standing of the "international community" with the people who vote in elections.

1.700,000 million out of a population of 2.300,000 normal people living in the worlds biggest concentration camp, staved of food, water, fuel, Communication, medicine, made homeless. How can Israelis sleep?

oh, forgot that they want them to leave Palestine so they can steal their land and the oil and gas reserves off the coast of Gaza.
