Women children, men families generations of wisdom, great grandparents even, suffer in war.

Pay the ultimate price of religious extremism, intolerance, hate, fear and loathing, leads to the necessity to wage war.

These civilians, whom Hamas uses as human bulletproof vests, are the result of an evil regime occupying Gaza. Hamas shoots civilians who are marching south and refuse to return to the north. Hamas needs to be removed and the longer the world allows it to exist we will see these numbers creep up, which in the realm of the 100 day war is actually not as high as could be.

Thankfully Israel is a member of Team International Rules Based Order. /s

But that cant be, this is a war against Hamas not ordinary Palestinians, according to the Israeli government. How is it possible for a professional military like Israel's to miss their targets so much? They constantly assure us all that they do their utmost to limit civilian casualties.

We this shows from a neutral source that Israel is full of lies. This IS a war against all in Gaza, armed and unarmed alike. This is for future expansion of new Jewish settlements and Palestinians will be again, illegally displaced.

Israel's PM has stated no two state solution, Israel will not allow the creation of a Palestinian state. Is it any wonder that some Palestinians have called for the destruction of Israel. Hamas wont allow Israel to exist because Israel wont allow Palestine to exist.

The root cause of all the problems in Israel are of Israel's own making. Time for the world to sanction Israel and its leaders. Freeze all funds and direct them to Palestine's creation and rebuilding.

This is why so many more people switch from support of Israel to Palestinians. Israel is its own worst enemy, and a very bad neighbor to all in the region, a real trouble maker.

No visuals of Hamas "using human shields "

Lots of visuals of extensively bombed residential areas and lots of visuals of hospitals bombed.

Now the UN has put forward figures of innocent deaths.

Is Hamas providing the figures ?

Only a shill would say ""yes".

Wake up people...this is a slaughter of innocent Palestinian lives...not even death and burial will protect you from a rapacious killing Army that disinters the dead in cemeteries.

May Israel suffer a 100 years of boycotts for their action.

No visuals of Israeli airplanes, rockets, missiles, or drones.

The results of more misfired rockets from Hamas.

I assume you are referencing the Israelis here, right?

The only upside to this indiscriminate genocidal murder by Israel is that people who have previously been nervous to voice their objection to Israeli oppression and apartheid of Palestinians are now out in full voice.

Palestinian State required, ASAP.

> Palestinian State required, ASAP.

How long has this occupation been? Enough is enough. Either let the Palestinians have their own state (there was a Palestinian Authority in the 90s during a brief glimmer of hope) or fully integrate them into full and equal Israeli citizenship. This has gone on long enough.

Israel has fallen in my eyes. Palestine has been knocking on closed “historical doors” for many years. All armed conflicts are preceded by a chain of events that are easy to view and make the right decision for yourself. It is already clear to everyone that the World Policeman has fallen to the bottom.

It’s not a war.

It’s a massacre

In fact, the history books will remember it as a genocide and a Holocaust perpetrated on the the Palestinians.

why does Hamas exist?...it was actually supported by Israel as a) it provided a counter weight to the PLO/PA - an Israeli divide and conquor scheme.

I was George Bush who demanded Hamas be on the Ballot...thinking that it would be a repudiation. (Fatah won more votes, but fielded too many cadidates...so the Hamas candidates won without high vote counts)

Additionally...Israel was "happy" with a terrorist org running Gaza...as it meant Israel would never have to seriously engage in conversations involving a Palestinian State...Zionism 101 as one poster called it.

Hamas are terrorists...but I'd say the Israelis who run a state where a tiny fraction of Palestinians living within that state who do have Israeli citizenship have the legal right to vote - that is called Appartheid...whereas Jews living in illegal sttlements in the OPT can legally vote.

Ironic that Israel was born out of a terrorist entity...displaced some 700,000 Palestinians...murdered and ran-sacked palestinian villiages in 47-48...that Israel is calling foul on Hamas.

Ironic also that it is the ex(reformed) appartheid country S. Africa who brought charges of genocide against Israel at the ICJ.

not a surprise that Israel's arguments were legal technicalities rather than address their war crimes.

Those genocides happen more often than most people think, except this time it being all over social media.

Hamas still fires rocket on Israel...

Each time tjat happens, the building from which it occured is bombed. Simple.

Enough is enough.

Please answer this simple question too : why Egypt does not open its border with Gaza ? (Egypt not being Israel's friend...).

War is sad. But a complete war will lead to peace, like WWII.
