Palestinians could have shot their own people just to frame the Israelis... need to see the forensics...

Noah Way said...

Israel is gloating about it, no forensics necessary.

All that's missing is making every Palestinian wear a star and crescent.

“Eye for an eye” Noah.... it’s in their OT....

Btw also one of Trumps favorites...

Tom Hickey said...

There are not only the dead but approaching 2000 wounded. The snipers shot them in the knee cap, which results in permanent crippling.

No coincidence, The Israeli commander said that they knew where all shots landed.

“Eye for an eye”

To be more accurate: 18 dead, > 1700 wounded for nothing. This wasn't a reprisal or even a disproportionate response because there was no attack on Israelis to respond to. It was a massacre of unarmed civilians protesting.

Go fuck yourself Franko. Your asinine bullshit has exceeded the limits of civility and my patience.

Matt: "Palestinians could have shot their own people just to frame the Israelis... need to see the forensics..."

You should be on Alex Jones. Similarly all the Sandy Hook kids were shot dead by their own parents to frame the NRA. Well, you said it yourself didn't you, Matt, when you defined your political ideology as "to the right of fascism". And it shows. Noah Way's putting it mildly when he says that you exceed the limits of civility. We can add decency and any sense of rationality to the mix of things you find obnoxious.

Wouldn’t have happened if the Israel border was not advanced upon by a threatening mob...

Tom Hickey said...

This is the strategy of non-violence that Gandhi used to drive the Brits out of India. It was not decisive but it was a preparatory step.

This is actually a better strategy that lobbing missiles into Israel.

Israel is getting some really bad press, and people are beginning to think the "H-word" and "N-word" in a reversal of roles.

The Israeli leadership needs to rethink strategy or they are going down.

Here you guys are like they were all playing frisbee golf.....

Imagine the mobilization of 30,000 people on your border, less than a mile from the nearest homes. Imagine if these tens of thousands of people were amassing on a border which terror organizations have spent years tunneling under for the express purpose of murdering your citizens, tunnels that have already been used to murder and kidnap your people. It’s terrifying. And while we Israelis know our country will defend us, it’s painful to watch as the international community plays directly into the hands of Hamas, calling Israel’s response to molotov cocktails and attempted infiltrations “disproportionate” and “a massacre” of “peaceful protestors.”

FYI you guys are acting as agents of a terror organization...

Tom Hickey said...

What what happens, Matt.

Israel is in trouble, and Trump's team will be too if he tries to excuse this.

Looks really bad.

Tom Hickey said...

BTW, looks like something similar is afoot at the US border, where a column of "refugees" is approaching the border and DJT is promising to send the US military to confront it.

Plays great with the base, but the everyone else is horrified.

Matt: "Wouldn’t have happened if the Israel border was not advanced upon by a threatening mob..."

As anyone who has eyes knows, what you just said is total nonsense. The Palestinians were demonstrating on their OWN territory and on their OWN side of the border, not in Israeli territory. They did not cross or infringe the border. Peaceful Palestinian demonstrators were murdered. This is a typical Israeli tactic. Israel uses extreme violence (murdering peaceful protestors) to provoke violence and then claim the massive onslaught that they then unload is defensive. Everyone knows it. That's why every country in the world routinely condemns Israel. Because the US is unimaginably EXCEPTIONAL it vetoes any and all UN resolutions, defies international law and the Geneva conventions by protecting an apartheid state which is hell bent on a greater Israel and ethnic cleansing.

Preemptive war ... the inmates are running the asylum.

You can find all of these tactics if you go back to the late 1930's and early 40's. Israel is the Nazi Germany of the 21st century, and is running the world's largest concentration camp.
