Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, July 24, 2014

Israeli tank shells hit a compound housing a U.N. school in the Gaza Strip on Thursday, killing at least 15 people and wounding dozens who were seeking shelter from fierce clashes on the streets outside, Palestinian officials said. Survivors told CBS News that they were warned that the school was targeted and they were preparing to leave when they say Israeli forces opened fire. According to UNICEF, at least 15 Palestinian children were killed throughout Gaza during the last 24 hours. A CNN report said the Israeli military told CNN that a rocket fired from Gaza could be behind the attack.

The deaths raised the overall Palestinian death toll in the conflict that began on July 8 to at least 751, Gaza health official Ashraf al-Kidra said. Israel has lost 32 soldiers, all since July 17, when it widened its air campaign into a full-scale ground operation.

Since it was a UN school full of civilians - I am leaning toward no. But I don't know for sure.

NO excuse for not allowing civilians to evacuate.

I wonder should the Israeli's give the Muslim's in Gaza the same terms that the Muslim's gave the Christians in Mosul?

So they have a ground campaign, and could have gone there themselves, but instead chose to bomb a school.

And give up this "advanced warning" crap. It's not enough warning and that is clear by how ineffective it is.

I am staying on topic, BB has said it very clear, if the Muslims lay down their arms, there will be peace, Israel lays down its arms and all of the Jews will die. What is happening in Iraq is what Hamas and the Muslims in Gaza want to happen to the Jews. In a war innocent people are always going to die. This is a war for the life of the Israeli people, and they have been fighting it for well over sixty years.

Just no Palestinians left. Israel's stated plan is to import all the jews in Russia. They need room for that. No biggie, happens all the time. Some fine folk called it Liebenstraum, while some evil liberals went and called their collective punishment of those resisting this grand plan a bad thing.

Banner wants a higher body count on the Israeli side. Apparently the Jew haters want more dead Israelis so the body count isn't so lopsided, and then things will be just peachy.

Well just saw where Israel fired at a Hospital. Now why would they do that, Oh yeah Hamas was using it as a command center and rocket launching site.

Hamas told them to stay them to ignore the "warnings".

Hamas' Interior Ministry has ordered residents of the Gaza Strip to remain in their houses if they are about to be bombed by the Israelis, a move that effectively turns citizens into human shields and is intentionally meant to boost the casualty rate, according to a copy of the order published by Hamas.

So in that regard you are probably right. Could you imagine what would happen if you didn't listen to Hamas...... Fatah does..

Did America wait for Germans to evacuate their cities before we bombed ? Did America wait for Japanese to evacuate before we dropped A-Bombs? Did the Nazis wait for Britons to evacuate London before sending over their V2 rockets?
Hamas uses their children to protect their missiles, Israel uses their missiles to protect their children. Hamas has no goal other than extermination of Jews.
Islam - the perverse, patriarchal, xenophobic, misogynistic, racist Death Cult of Peace. Never a "religion", always a dogmatic, freedom smothering, pseudo governmental philosophy with world wide hegemonic goals. This "force" is a threat to civilization, and has been for twelve centuries."

So they bomb a school and only 15 Palestinians are killed? On a weekday?
This is why Palestinians aren't smart enough or capable enough. They don't value education.

#5 They were told not to evacuate by Hamas and Hamas does not allow the civilians in their bomb tunnels which they often seek shelter in during these retaliations by Israel.

There are also reports that this explosion may have been caused by an errant Hamas rocket which landed inside of Gaza rather than flying toward Israel (it happens more often than not).

Why is Republican foreign policy held captive by this odious lunatic and his US fifth column of tenured neocons ? Bibi has been Wrong about Iraq, wrong about Iran, wrong about Syria, supporter of terrorist Chechnya and someone whom has singlehandedly alienated Jordan, Egypt, Dubai and Turkey. Quite some achievement. Yet we get the nimbys on the DR who cheer him on. To Bibi, the US congress and supporters like 101, AndreaM et al are marks. He's been heard to boast that they are easily controlled. Hasbara works.
My question is, why do supporters of Bibi's policies hate America ?

Propaganda ?
Even there, the Palestinians are outgunned. What's amusing is that the same segment of the population that fell for the information op that sold the Iraq War are the same that have swallowed plumb-line to rod, the GOI's messaging.

It takes a complete dunce to consider Israel a horrible bully when considering the amount of land they hold and their population when considering the TOTAL land and population of the entire Middle East. NOBODY, no country, no leader wants or cares about those pesky "Palestinians." When Israel captured the Sinai, Gaza, the West Bank (a part of Jordan) and the Golan Heights in the 1967 war, they offered to return them in consideration for signing a truce. Egypt and Jordan signed and Israel returned the oil-rich Sinai but Egypt didn't want Gaza and all the grief with the "Palestinians." They STILL don't and even enforce their border with Gaza to keep them to hell out. Jordan said the same thing about the West Bank, they didn't want to deal with them either. Syria never did sign and that's why Israel still occupies the Golan heights.
Face it, you fools. The oil-rich countries in the ME could soon do a great deal to force a treaty recognizing Israel's right to exist and improve "Palestinian" woes but they would lose one of the issues with which to pummel Israel.

NOW...if Barackus Maximus, his minions and raptureous, leg-thrill "progressives" want to face a REAL bully instead of spending all their wrath on Israel and Netanyahu, allow me to point out that a BIG bully exists in the world's largest nation. His name is Putin, head of Russia, and he is fomenting a war in Europe as we speak after annexing Georgia and Crimea. He has been responsible for at least 300 innocent civilian deaths we know of and is causing more to die even though Ukraine did absolutely NOTHING to HIS nation or people.

The truth is that both parties are owned by the same fascisti.

THAT is electoral fraud.

Not pointing out that the fix is in.

Why SHOULD the 'Palestinians'be evicted to other Arab nations ? Nobody wants them ? What kind of defence is that for these 18 days of 'further incursions' ?
Even the sanitisation of the language goes to indicate how much the fix is in. When Putin flattened Grozny, it was a 'brutal suppression'. Gaza is 'escalation'.
Conspiracy theories abound about Obama but the seems to be a studied silence about Israeli influence on US politics. What do they have on the political class ?
You should be more unequivocal and state your position more sincerely. Namely, Israel and it's abbetors would rather Palestinians gone, but don't have understood that the penalty for that may be the very delegitimisation of the state of Israel in much the same way they have delegitimised the two-state solution.
Just sayin'

"Why SHOULD the 'Palestinians'be evicted to other Arab nations ?"

Because Israel supporters say so. There's really no other logic to it so don't expect any.

I don't know why otherwise normal people just throw out every scrap of common sense and moral clarity just to defend Israel.

Doesn't matter that Palestinians are idiots who follow the lead of terrorists. Theft is theft. If you're saying that Israel should be able to take land that does belong to them then you are forwarding a pro-theft position.

The members of an Italian political organization that controlled Italy under the fascist dictatorship of Benito Mussolini from 1922 to 1943.
