Gaza Death Toll Passes 200, Israel Steps Up Military Offensive
Quote:Gaza death toll rises; Hamas fires rockets at Tel Aviv

By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Maayan Lubell

GAZA/JERUSALEM Sat Jul 12, 2014 6:59pm EDT

(Reuters) - An Israeli air strike on the home of Gaza's police chief killed 18 people on Saturday, Gaza's health ministry said, and Hamas fired the largest salvo of rockets yet on Tel Aviv since the start of the Jewish state's offensive in the Palestinian enclave.

The strike on the home of Tayseer Al-Batsh in Gaza City was the deadliest bombing since Israel launched its offensive on Tuesday to end Palestinian rocket fire into its territory.

A source in the Islamist group Hamas, which has fired hundreds of rockets into Israel since Tuesday, said Al-Batsh, was in critical condition. All of those killed in the air strike were members of Al-Batsh's family.

Ashraf Al-Qidra, spokesman for the Gaza Health ministry, said 45 people were wounded and others were still trapped under the rubble where rescue workers were searching.

Hamas earlier claimed responsibility for 10 rockets that were launched at Tel Aviv on Saturday but which caused no casualties or damage.

Sirens sounded across central Israel as people rushed for cover from the rockets. One group of youths sitting at the beach cheered as they saw a rocket intercepted in the night sky. In Gaza, Palestinians stood at rooftops chanting Allah Akbar (God is great), cries that also echoed over mosque loudspeakers.

The Israeli military said three of the rockets fired were intercepted over Tel Aviv and another struck an open area.

Hamas had broadcast a televised statement an hour before the salvo to say it was preparing a major attack on Tel Aviv. The Israeli military said it bombed the rocket launcher used for the salvo.

Israel's offensive has killed 145 Palestinians since Tuesday. Gaza medical officials said at least 82 civilians, including 25 children, were among the dead from the air strikes on the territory into which nearly 2 million people are packed.

Israel is a racist warmongering colonizer state. Gaza has full right to defend from oppressive alien terrorists...

That's alot of civilian casulties. Ukraine civilian casulties are nearing 500 in a very short period, and Iraq saw around 800 civilian casulties in May *before* the Isis~Crisis, and supposively 1,700 in June with MASS-GRAVES.

Sadly, the first shot has been fired by Hamas apes. These cowardly airheads have admitted targeting civilian areas and they're using their own people as shields. What better excuse for the Israelis to launch a full blown offensive?!

They gave their opponent the excuse they've been waiting for so long now. The excuse to turn the place into Hell on Earth!

Hamas is not acting in the favor or benefit of the people who elected them. I mean, how does the pounding of Israeli homes with rockets benefit anybody, really?! How can they attack civilians and vilify the others for killing civilians at the same time?!

Good Lord!

Palestinians need to get rid of these dangerous trouble-making parties real quick. Their survival depends on it.

RE: Gaza Death Toll Passes 140, Israel Steps Up Military Offensive
This drama started upon the kidnapping of some jewish mixteeso teens, of which smells like a full setup to distablise gaza further. Would the isralite warmoger savages in isreal create and sacrifice one or two of their own for lands and a racist jewish state, most likely. 911 did seem like human sacrifice to unleash a new age of evil, so can israel, half of their cabal seems to be calling the shots from d.c...

How do you know that for certain to make such a hefty accusation ?. It is not Hamas or anyone else who has a long list of documented false flag terroristic operations to its credit ?. Take your pick : lavon affair, operation magic carpet, USS Cole, blowing up their own civilians riding buses and on and on.....

If you are in the process of learning and expanding your mind that is fine because we are all learning. That said, do yourself a favor (do everybody a favor), first learn two VERY IMPORTANT things : (1) learn how to zip it up for it is better to keep one's mouth shut and appear stupid rather than open it and remove all doubt. (2) learn to say : "I DON'T KNOW", nobody will hold it against you because it requires intellectual honesty and integrity.

Actually it was Israel who started his by forcefully taking Palestinian land illegally... With the full support of the US government.

I remember in the late 60's my grandfather literally screaming at Walter Cronkite on the black & white TV, laughing about it and thinking that he was just going senile.
Over the years I have learned that he was right.

Out of curiosity, what would your reaction be if someone began blatantly taking your property little by little over the course of a half century ?

Oh wait. That IS happening via taxes and inflation, isn't it ?
( John Cougar Mellencamp's "Rain on the Scarecrow" comes to mind. )
So I guess we already know the answer.

Not that accurate. It was one of the most brutal and heartless land take over and indigenous population displacement in the recent history of mankind.

Let's listen to Ralph Schoenman (a cultural Jew if I am not mistaken) on that subject :

Yes sir, but things are a lot more complicated now. There are 1.4 million Muslims in Israel. In towns like Jerusalem and Tel Aviv Arabs and Jews live as neighbors.

You can't just pound everybody with rockets and declare them all heretics just because they live in Israel! Or can you, JFK?

The savage killing of this Palestinian teenager was a set up. The IDF did it and waited for the armed factions in Palestine to do something stupid and Hell they did and look where we are now! People are leaving Gaza by the thousands and the IDF has 20 000 bastards mobilized across the border.

Lord have mercy!

I am outraged, man! I can't stand it!

RE: Gaza Death Toll Passes 140, Israel Steps Up Military Offensive
Lemme guess, you saw the fox news article which says something about the Hamas rockets yet had a picture of a demolished building in Gaza. Correct ?

Try this : http://www.aa.com.tr/live1/
( at the moment it is from yesterday, but does cycle to live footage from inside Gaza )
Or you could learn something from this guy inside Gaza who has been broadcasting live with bombs going off around him for 6 days now :

Edit to add :

8:51 ajcable: wow, at the call to prayer
8:51 ajcable: despicable

I happen to agree, these are not Hamas, They are Palestinians.

bristopen seems determined to prove that he is a helpless case. That's how people who have more interest in being right than expanding their horizon and understandings, are.

Reading his posts and replies brought to my mind a verse from a Paul Simon's song (the boxer) :

Quote:Still, a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest.

I don't believe it. This Israeli soldier talks about how israeli soldiers frame the Palestinians by dressing up like them, going into their territories, and throwing rocks and starting roits, or doing whatever it takes to justify Israel opening fire or fighting back. He specifically talks about this 32 minutes in, but the whole speech is horrifically telling.





Anyone remember MMG ? Keep him in your thoughts... his whole family is still over there. Icon_sad

I watched a 30 minute piece from fox news earlier today about this, and every sentence was just rife with bull shit, lies, and propaganda.

Not even one death on the Zionist side yet ? "Possibly" 4 injured.... and Fox repeats that over and over and over. This is nauseating.

A good analogy :
Blaming Gaza for shooting missiles into Israel is like blaming a woman for slapping her rapist.
