More egg on MAGA mugs. This right-wing bunch of traitors are unredeemable (as future polls will prove).

Israel differentiates between civilians and combatants, and goes out of its way to humanely treat both, complying with Geneva Conventions, while Gaza and West Bank-based Arab terrorists just murder everyone indiscriminately. Even their own people.
This is just a bunch of boilerplate excuses for mass-murder, hiding behind hypocritical words that fool no-one with eyes and a conscience. The Irish members of the European Parliament have excoriated the West for its callous ignoring of the ethnic cleansing of Gaza on a grand scale What the Israelis have done to Palestinians as America and most of Europe stonewall all and any criticism,
entire residential blocks leveled to the ground in Gaza City and surrounding areas. The smell of decomposing bodies trapped under collapsed buildings fills the air ..They have found and buried 46 so far during the truce, he said.Most were unidentified... 111,000 people have respiratory infections and 75,000 have diarrhea, more than half of them under 5 years old.... “More people could die from disease than bombings.”
makes the notorious 1938 "Night of Broken Glass", the German government's revenge for the murder of a German diplomat by a Jewish terrorist with a 2-day rampage of burning synagogues, attacking Jewish shops look like amateur hour. Let's pray it's not too late to stop these atrocities and save precious lives in Gaza. Our claim to be a civilized world is now in question. The IDF's mass killing of today and our collective response will be recorded by history, too.

Putting faces on the 8,000 Gazan children murdered by the IDF is beyond even AI's capability. All the deep fakes they can make can't fool our lying eyes that see Biden and Western friends having the back of Israel's war crimes. 30;000+ of dead Arabs is just a number, smaller than the bottomline of unrestricted arms sales to Israel.

The Biden administration has told Israel it must avoid “significant further displacement” and mass casualties among Palestinian civilians if it resumes the offensive, and that it must operate with more precision in southern Gaza than it has in the north, according to U.S. officials. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity
“significant further* **displacement**”, mass "casualties", "operate with more precision***"
These ugly, bureaucratic euphemisms cannot hide the cruel, barbaric destruction of human life and property that Americans have greenlit with their unregistered and unrestricted supply of weaponry in this one-sided slaughter. The above language also betrays Biden's fears of political fallout for his election chances - young people, especially, do not take kindly to murdering children with bombs.

Israel will resume its operations with “full force” as soon as the current deal expires if Hamas ...
If Uncle Sam says so. The White House has already whispered into Bibi's ear...The utter devastation of Gaza witnessed by hundreds of millions around the world and the 20,000+ anonymous dead and the unimaginable suffering of survivors is now getting Western politicians from the international scofflaw community desperately trying to the defend the indefensible into a lot of trouble with their voting community alarmed and emotionally agitated by the one-sided fight in Gaza and the truth that keeps trickling out about Israel's dark past and its illegal occupation of Palestinian lands. Expect the referee in Washington to stop the slaughter and seek a final solution.

Given the utter savagery of the Hamas terrorists, it is not surprise that they are not releasing any of their gang rape victims.
We have no idea what really happened on Oct 7, yet for seven weeks armchair critics who know zilch have been talking non-stop about Hamas savagery. Give it a break until we know the truth. Suspicions are getting stronger from evidence leaking out that the IDF caused the high death toll among Israelis. Why would this surprise given the overwhelmingly powerful armaments the Israelis always employ?

The Arabs got a bad deal from the Jews on this hostage exchange of 13:8 whereas a ball park killing ratio of Palestinians to Israelis must be around 25:1 (and rising).

Incubated by decades of gaslighting and MSM brainwashing and encouraged by the coddling of extreme right-wing regimes by the European friends of "think on the right" Uncle Sam and his dollar diplomacy, the vampire specter of fascism has woken from its sleep (the powers-that-be conveniently omitted to bring the stake) and emerging from its coffin now haunts Europe once again.The Germans in the 1920s before the Nazis came to power tirelessly warned, "The Enemy is on the Right!" Their fears were ignored and this fascist pest today began yesterday in 1933 when all our troubles seemed so far away. People had better wake up before a fascist Groundhog Day arrives.

Netanyahu - "You must remember what Amalek has done to you”
Not a call for genocide
Maybe not for some, but Americans know a dog-whistle when they hear one and, given the transparent Israeli contempt for their Arab neighbors as having lives of lesser worth, the killing of 25,000 civilians in 2 months reeks of ethnic cleansing, the stage of slaughter before full-blown genocide.
Hamas is a terrorist organization.
No, it's not, just because America says so. Hamas is the resistance movement of the Palestinian people of Gaza that international law, not Joe Biden, recognizes as having the right to take up arms against an occupying force (spelt IDF). This inconvenient fact maybe news to many, but not to those cognizant of international law.

It's always the same folks who know nothing about books, films, art and music who behind the closed curtains of power decide on what is "suitable" for the public. Watching Oppenheimer (and then reading the bio) is a chance for people to educate themselves leading to independent thinking, a frightening prospect for some, that can make control freaks break out in a sweat.

The war erupted when several thousand Hamas militants stormed into southern Israel, killing at least 1,200 people, mostly civilians, and taking scores of hostages, including babies, women and older adults, as well as soldiers, for whom Hamas is expected to demand a large number of high-profile prisoners.
This account, more sober than the lurid atrocity stories that have been circulating as propaganda for the last 7 weeks giving Netanyahu cover for the military failures of the IDF and an excuse to launch a slaughter of civilians with a savagery worthy of King Herod to assuage the public thirst for revenge, reflects the evidence leaking out that the Hamas attack was a devised as a military operation. The IDF's poor performance and their response using heavy armaments, tanks, Apache helicopters with Hellfire rockets can better explain the high number of deaths as the truth trickles out with SM heading MSM propaganda and lies off at the pass with detailed analyses of what happened on Oct 7. Unfortunately for "King Bibi", this massacre of innocents has been witnessed by hundreds of millions of outraged human beings around the world and is beginning to take its toll on Israeli Holocaust "credit" and the credibility of the IDF. As a result, the blowback is fast eroding public support for Western politicians who stand behind all this bloodshed in Gaza. We know who owns Israel and one phone call from Washington to Jerusalem could turn the Israelis into "a whiter shade of pale". The killing window for the IDF is thus now fast closing and they will have no choice but to cry uncle and sit down for a final solution. We are all sick and tired of the last 75 yrs of needless bloodletting.

Modern life is a cold, lonely place for the young as well as the old. Young people without the guardrails that life experience furnishes are especially vulnerable. In the light of all those lives lost in Gaza and Israel, the many thousands of people who had wanted so much to live, this story is all the more depressing. Many of us must wish we could have had the opportunity to talk them out of their irrevocable act.

Gaza is more than a rez - it's a ghetto as in "Warsaw" proving that humans do sometimes learn from history. Unfortunately, in this case, it's another wrong lesson. World-wide condemnation from millions of outraged spectators, including many Jews, have made Netanyahu & friends aware that they've gone too far and it's going to cost them all dearly.

Putin's not getting any younger and he's having to lower his expectations and give up a dream or two. Instead of "Vladimir the Great" who united Ukraine and Russia, he's rethinking: how about "Vladimir the Great Peace-Maker" who ended strife in the eastern provinces (and who ended his days in glory and not in a cell) ?

That Johnson was nothing more than a lazy, incompetent, self-entitled clown with an imposter complex whose sloppy, shambolic years of cos-playing in office and lying to the public led to many tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths from Covid is sadly being confirmed by this belated inquiry.

Javier Milei 's mother, Alicia Luján Lucich, is the granddaughter of WW2 Croatian Fascist Dictator Ante Pavelic who escaped to Argentina in 1946, aided by the Catholic Church in Naples.
Milei is a firm supporter of Israel and its genocide of the Palestinians. The old cliche of the apple not falling far from the tree seems applicable in this case.
Milei's a poison apple that's going to give Argentina's "Deplorables" severe stomach pains to make them cry unless a remedy is found quickly before Milei's threatened chain-saw massacres do more damage to the economic mess he has taken upon himself to "fix".

And after the cease-fire Netanyahoo's war against the Palestinian people will plunge Israel's image and reputation further down the toilet in the eyes of world opinion. Callous politicians are incapable of understanding that few humans can stomach the slaughter of innocent children, never mind their mothers, fathers and siblings. The new acronym WCNSF (wounded child no surviving family) is rattling the conscience of all who possess one. All around the world people are opening history books for the first time to understand the holocaust of Gaza and are being shocked at what they are discovering. Already 14 million Tik-Tokers have read Osama bin Laden's "Letter to America" and have expressed shock and awe to learn about the hand of America in this sordid tale of Occupation. And how many Americans have ever heard of 78 year-old Sirhan Sirhan? Who is he? And why did he do it?

No surprise to hear such cold callous remarks coming out of the mouth of a super-rich politician. As Gaza replaces Guernica as a symbol of barbarity these right-wing politicians wear their inhumanity on their sleeves. Many of us are not so blind as to not see and understand from the start of Covid that the incompetence and indifference of politicians of his ilk cost hundreds of thousands of people their lives. Sadly, in an unjust society, there will be zero accountability for those who by not listening to the advice of doctors and scientists allowed this pandemic to spread and kill.

Most people understand that Israel is fighting against terrorist cowards, who hide behind women's skirts and children instead of fighting like men.
Historically, can you provide some examples of resistance fighters fighting an open pitched battle ?
Paustovsky talks sense. Military science uses the anti-septic term "asymmetrical warfare". I would add that the obvious cowards are the inhuman politicians whose thumbs up start all the destruction of countless human lives. Dishonorable mention must also be made of pilots who drop bombs and rain rockets on defenseless civilians thousands of metres below. Gaza has wiped Guernica off the map as a symbol of barbarity.
