Eviction of Palestinian families in East Jerusalem wasn't resolved, Israeli settlers still invade Al Aqsa mosque under the protection of police, occupation hasn't ended. Now Israel will keep provoking the Palestinians under the watch of US, once they try to resist the occupation everybody starts shouting "terrorists are attacking poor Israelis".

Israel destroys civilian targets in Gaza and the rest of the world gets to pay for the reconstruction.

BDS Israel until it stops abusing the human rights of the Palestinians.

Israel needs to understand the rockets and suicide bombings will stop only when Israel stops its aggression against the Occupied Territories.

The serious problems experienced by the Palestinians remains unresolved so permanent peace isn't even on the table.

1200 Palestinians with Israeli citizenship living in Insrael have been arrested since May 12th. They announced 500 more will be arrested in the next 48 hours for protesting in the past few weeks. This is how they provoke unrest. This is not shown on mainstream media. They will kick doors down and take these young folks to jail for speaking against Apartheid. Please do some research and check these facts. Palestinians inside Israel that account for 20% of the population also need your voice. It's not just the Palestinians in the occupied territories.

Legitimate point. Thanks for the reminder.

And under that ruse we get to see where the money goes, that makes perfect sense now where all the money went to buy these rockets.

Hamas thanked Iran publicly for the weapons.

Israel thanked American for the $3.5 billion and the weapons.

Yep thanks to President Biden for selling weapons to Israel.

"My party still supports Israel," Biden said. "Until the region says unequivocally they acknowledge the right of Israel to exist as an independent Jewish state, there will be no peace."

Do you think this is a good thing?

Inaccurate.

Very, very Accurate, so where did the money go? Looking at the infrastructure doesn't look like the money was well spent.

Looking at the infrastructure doesn't look like the money was well spent.

The infrastructure looks bad because Israel just spent two weeks reducing it to rubble.

As it should when you're a terrorist and thinking you can take on Israel, but even before this, where did the money go? It definitely didn't go to building schools or new infrastructure.

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

As it should

You're saying that Israel should destroy buildings because the infrastructure is bad, and acknowledge that the infrastructure is bad because Israel destroyed the buildings. This is the sort of circular illogic we expect of you, so congratulations for continuing to live down to expectations.

It definitely didn't go to building schools or new infrastructure.

There are no schools in Palestine? OK. So you disagree with the claims that Palestinian schools teach children to hate Israel, then. After all, how could you teach something to children in schools when those schools don't exist?

Based on it being attacked and if that requires extreme measures to root out the terrorists, so be it.

There are no schools in Palestine? OK.

With the money they have received over the years they could have built them, but didn't, but they can build and use rockets? Well, I hope Hamas learned its lesson this time, only time will tell.

Do you think the 2 year olds that Israel killed were a threat to their state?

With the money they have received over the years they could have built them, but didn't

So you agree that Palestinian children aren't being taught in schools to hate Israel. Thank you for confirming.

Do you think the 2 year olds that Israel killed were a threat to their state?

No, but at the same time, why would Hamas (as they always do) hide and launch their attacks around, near, or in an area occupied by children?

I never said that and you are doing it again. Stop coming up with your own narrative on what others say or think. Hamas could have used the millions it gets from Iran and other international communities and could have used the funds for creating better facilities, homes, schools and none of that has happened.

I put it to you that, if there are no schools, then hate cannot be taught in school - because those schools do not exist. You confirmed that you do not believe that there are schools in Palestine. Logically, therefore, no hate can be taught in Palestinian schools. I'm sorry you are having difficulty following the logic of your own thoughts, but I'm happy to help you understand your views, as ever.

Where did the buildings Israel destroyed come from?

They don't.

They do, that has been shown time and time again. If you don't believe it, you don't and that is your right.

Like I said, instead of using money to teach kids how to hate and to buy more weapons, they should put it to a more constructive and meaningful purpose, the only thing that Hamas will do is just get more people killed.

Rhetorical question.

No, it's a legitimate question. Where did the buildings come from? Who paid for them to be built?

President Biden is being incredibly generous to offer more aid to the Palestinian Arabs. The United Nations will have a tough time making sure humanitarian aid does not go into Hamas' pockets to build more missiles and tunnels, used to launch attacks on Israel. Hamas is recognized as a terrorist organization even by Japan.

Unfortunately Palestinian Arab children are taught to hate Israel--in fact, they do not refer to Israel in textbooks but rather 'the 1948 Occupied territories". This is undisputed. And UN aid over the years goes to education in the Palestinian Arab schools.interestingly, you never hear of Arab citizens of Israel complain about Israel's education system.

So, the promise of more UN and US money is appeasing Hamas' leadership, until they can rebuild and initiate the next terrorist attacks.

"Precisely"? They say Palestinian children have schools, you say they don't. You disagree with them.

This is the fundamental difference on how one side chooses not to teach hate while the other side breeds it, pushes it, and encourages it.

You think Israel breeds, pushes, and encourages hate? Strong words. Since we know you don't think Palestine has schools, we know that only Israel, in your view, can have an education system. If you thought that there were schools in Palestine, your sentence might be open to interpretation. But you don't, so it isn't.
