Why would they have to?
7 pm local: ceasefire goes into effect. 7:09 local: Hamas fires rockets into Israel. Tell me how this is Israel ’ s fault?
When does the State department start calling out Hamas?
50 rockets fired into Israel since this morning. And the last time the blockade was lightened, Hamas imported concrete for use in the tunnels that snake under the border into Israeli AND Egyptian communities. Why should Israel and Egypt end the blockade when Hamas has shown that they want to use the imported materials to hurt, maim, and kill and not improve life for the residents of Gaza?
Some of these products have heckshers (symbols that show a product is kosher) that say they are Dairy. I trust Trader Joe’s vegan symbol over an OU-D, as it is super hard and expensive to get an OU-Parve (parve=vegan).
Unarmed is a deceiving term. some people’s size is a weapon. This 18 year old was something like 6 ’ 3” 200 lb+, which could do some serious damage. For a police officer to use lethal force, he has to believe that his life is in serious jeopardy. We don’t know all of the facts surrounding the shooting, so using charged language is not helping calm the crowds.
“Let’s blame Israel”- Sheera Frankel
Yay corporate propaganda, brought to you by BuzzFeed.
Shock and surprised, but he was half Palestinian…just saying…
‘Why are the US and Israel allies?’ One may ask. Israel is a democratic country, the only one in the entirety of the middle East. Israel has free press and freedom to practice ones own religion, the only in the region. Israel is bound by the rule of law, a country where the PM has been investigated and even ‘impeached’. And contrary to the claims of genocide, Israel uses its money and resources to protect their citizens. I give zero credibility to Palestinian death counts because those numbers are not independently verified by organizations like the Intl Red Cross. And, as we are now hearing from international journalists returning from Gaza, they were told to report the Hamas constructed narrative or face consequences.

Where are the articles speaking to the Hamas fighters? You know, the ones in uniforms, away from the civilians? Oh right, Hamas doesn’t allow the press to talk to or photograph anyone except that which Hamas stages and prompts.
What is a disgrace, Mr. Gunness, is that your staff turned a blind eye to Hamas turning your schools into weapon depots. Even your boss, the Secretary General, has condemned the storage of munitions a deplorable act, one that turns the schools, clinics, and shelters into legitimate military targets. Death is abhorrent, especially for those who are seeking shelter. But what does it say that there are no safe havens because the designated shelters are weapons depots?
Lewis Black: 120 f’n degrees. Oh, but it’s a dry heat? So is a convection oven…
His crimes are reprehensible. What separates us from him is that we have the rule of law to sanction his death (whether or not that is moral is a fair question, but not one I’m dealing with here ). All citizens are protected by the 5th and 6th amendments against the state imposing cruel and unusual punishment, hence the scrutiny surrounding the death penalty. Yes, a gunshot to the head or gas chamber would be quicker, but they also fall into the category of prohibited punishment. Medical euthanasia, for the most part, has been found to be the least cruel and unusual punishment. From what I’m told, it’s similar to pre-surgery anesthesia. After the inmate is under, there is no coming back.
How many of the Palestinian deaths are soldiers or combatants? You distinguish the Israel side, but not the Palestinian side. Also noteworthy, in the paragraph recounting the deaths, you lead with the operation first, and then lightly mention the rocket attacks, making it seem that Israel started this fight. A better way to present it would be to present the rocket attacks first and then mention the IDF operation. This way, you have the chronology of the paragraph match the chronology of events.
What exactly were the residents of Gaza doing on September 12, 2001? And did the civilized Americans do after we killed Bin Laden? I agree, it is horrible that Jews are celebrating, but they are no different than any other people. These people have been under threat of missile attack FOR ALMOST 10 YEARS! Now, their military, in which they have all served, is going in to hopefully end the threat.
This claim of proportionality is BS. 200 Gazans are dead, which is too high of a number, but how many Jews dead would make it right? Israel uses its resources to protect its people, whereas Hamas uses their people as a means to protect their weapons.
He’s just stunned…
Buzzfeed, you forgot your typical sentence/byline: All because of Israeli aggression. (Why yes, that’s snark!)
It is sad that 100 people have died, regardless of national affiliation. It is a war crime that Hamas, a terrorist organization, fires from heavily populated civilian sectors. They hope that either the IDF will not attack, or if they do, it will cause a large body count. They argument of a low Israeli body count is specious (look up the word ‘specious’), because Israel spends millions of dollars on defensive technology to keep their population safe. Hamas uses their defensive technology to keep their weapons safe.
This word ‘never’; I don’t think you know what this means.
1) proof please that this video is actually from this past week and not from 2 years ago or even in Gaza. Videos and pictures ‘originating’ from Gaza have already been proven to be recycled or not even from Gaza. 2) I didn’t see any videos of people in Sderot, Tel Aviv, or the Neve fleeing from the rockets originating from Gaza. 3) Have someone read this for spelling/grammar errors before posting.
And what about the American citizen that was kidnapped and murdered in Hebron while hitching home?
Finally, a thoughtful, even handed overview about the situation in that area (at least better than any screed Sheera Frenkel writes). His CV shows that not only knows the situation, but has been ‘inside the room’ with the policy heavyweights.
We did #10 (bribe with candy) with our twins using dumdums. Our one daughter learned how to cut off mid poop, collect her lollipop, finish it, and go back to finish her poop, and then try to collect a 2nd lollipop.
Ice-T is in his sixth decade of life. (5 decades + a remainder of 6=6 decades)
Look at the history: Israelis offer peace, Palestinians reject it. Since when is Palestinian pride/honor greater than peace?
Next, you’ll say there’s no Santa Claus or Easter Bunny.
The chess checkmate only works on noobs. It can be defeated anytime by changing moves 2,3, or 4
I got one year, mostly from skills being an Eagle Scout. Boy Scouts good for something finally.
Last time I checked, peas are legumes, which are kitniyot, which is a no-no for Ashkenazi Jews.
Know what else makes cycling safer? Having cyclists obey all traffic rules and realizing that they will always lose when going against a vehicle. Its simple physics.
