Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, July 13, 2014

As the United Nations called for a ceasefire, the Israeli military ordered residents of northern Gaza to leave their homes Saturday "for their own safety." The military planned to hit the area with even heavier force over the next 24 hours, a chief military spokesman said Saturday night. Fifteen people were killed in an airstrike as they ended evening prayers, the Palestinian Health Ministry reported. The five-day assault has killed more than 120, with estimates as high as 135 people. A mosque in the central Gaza Strip had been bombed to rubble, residents said. The Israeli military said the mosque had housed a weapons cache. Eight other mosques have been damaged by bombing and 537 Gaza houses have either been destroyed or damaged, Gaza-based Al-Mezan Association for Human Rights said.

The Israeli military said the attacks on densely populated civilian areas were justified since Hamas militants used homes and religious sites to hide rockets. Gaza militants have fired nearly 700 rockets over the past five days, but there have been no recorded fatalities on the Israeli side. The Palestinian death toll continues to rise.

Look. Israel should just carpet bomb all of Gaza.

America and the rest of the western "civilized" world can look the other way as it has been.

Then there would be no more Palestine and after a few years it will just be old news.

yeah that sounds good...OR the TERRORISTS can just keep firing rockets into Israel and leftists and the UN not only won't worry about it but they'd have a little party.

I mean come on...whats a few rockets every DAY OF THE WEEK ?

I tell you what....let's tell Canada to launch a few into NYC...I wouldn't care about that....what's the big deal?

on a report I saw one of the buildings that had been hit in Gaza and you could see what their problem was....a huge picture of arafat was still on what was left of the wall....the man who stole millions from these poor people and who said NO after the last real chance at peace....

it's SO simple...stop firing rockets...and the return fire stops...

I like the posters that claim Israel's disproportionate response when dealing with these [...].

The fact of the matter is, if you poke a big dog with a stick he'll turn around and bite the crap out of you.

Nothing disproportionate about that.

Yes, Israel is under rocket attack and has the right to pursue countermeasures in self defense. But is this self defense or self destruction? These air strikes end up creating more militants than they kill.

The Israelis very likely murdered some of their own as a pretense for this aggression, which has some of the hallmarks of genocide. Ironic to say the least.

Palestine is not a country. It is the largest Concentration Camp on the planet earth, policed by Israel which controls their supply of food, water, electricity. medicine, EVERYTHING. Israel shoots to kill aid workers delivering medicine. Israel has even harvested Palestinian organs for sale in the USA for a profit. A Mayor and Rabbi in New Jersey were indicted for participation in this criminal activity. But only a Swedish newspaper covered the story.

Telling prisoners they need to leave through their own power, the prison you put them in, in order to avoid being blown up by bombs? Yup, its their fault they're dead.

You do know Arabs liv in Israel too, right? So in what way is a "genocide" happening?

Perhaps they should pick a different prison? Oh thats right, the rest of the Arab world won't accept them, why is that? When we are being asked to accept children from all nations, that the Arab countries can't accept good people from Gaza? Talk about immigration policy reforms...

The militants love Israel for this as they probably see the civilians being killed as nothing, just like Israel and so much of the American public judging by some of these comments.

The first Gulf War was triggered by UN sanctions, there are many UN sanctions against Israel.
No country in the modern era, since WWII, has been allowed to retain territory taken in war, except Israel.
Remember the USS Liberty!

Give the Palestinians their own state and kick all the recent Jewish settlers out of those lands.

Looking at birth rates and demographics, Israel is facing the prospect of an Arab majority. Establishing a Palestinian state is as important to Israel's future as it is to the Palestinians.

Blowing up militants and a bunch of civilians is just making things harder for that to happen, and putting Israel's future more in peril.

Your suggestion that Palestinians should leave their own country is like people saying Southerners should have left the United States because they didn't like slavery being made illegal. It's their country too. They were there in large numbers before the formation of Israel.

I Israel is in direct violation of UN Resolution 242 as well as a whole bunch of others. That demand they withdrawal from territories not accorded to them in 1948.

In May 2012, President Obama directed US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to allocate an additional $70 million to pay for more Iron Dome batteries and interceptor missiles in Israel.

No, that's convenient in covering-up atrocities committed against an already terrorized people.

911 was obviously an "inside job" similar to these "Palestinian rockets" - perpetrated by a terrorism syndicate as a false flag for war operations. Mossad planted explosives in the towers, filmed both plane strikes and danced at the murder of thousands of innocent Americans - killing Christians, Muslim, Atheists and Jews alike. How hard is it to imagine these barely rockets being launched into empty fields inside of "Israel" are also pretext for a fake "retaliation"? These people sprayed napalm on the deck of the USS Liberty - a horrific anti-personnel incendiary, but they didn't stop there - aircraft cannonfire, rockets and then came torpedo boats. They lied about mass murder of Egyptian military - whom they had dig their own graves as they were shot into them. Why would you ever believe anything coming out of Israel?
