It's mind-blowing how people have the energy to keep repeating the same claims over and over again for days and weeks, ignoring outside information.

“50 Hamas members” claim does not justify Gaza massacre. 18 May 2018

Excerpts

"Israel is trying to spin away the damage by claiming that many of those killed were members of Hamas, and therefore deserved to die.

But as international law experts and international officials have stressed, the political affiliation of those killed on Monday is irrelevant when it comes to the legality of Israel’s actions."


"Israel seeks to obscure the reality that the Great March of Return is a popular mobilization that includes the participation and leadership of Palestinians of all political stripes who seek an end to the siege and to exercise their right to return to lands just over Gaza’s boundary from which their families were expelled 70 years ago."


"“It doesn’t matter whether the victims were members of Hamas or not,” Human Rights Watch director Kenneth Roth stated on Thursday.

“Israeli snipers, entrenched behind two substantial fences, had no right to use lethal force … against anyone unless as a last resort to stop an imminent lethal threat.”

Calling the dead “ ‘terrorists’ doesn’t change the rules,” Roth added."

Palestine’s own Sharpeville massacre by its own Apartheid oppressors.
April 1, 2018

Excerpt

That Israel felt the need to resort to violence in response to unarmed resistance speaks volumes about its innate brutality.

The wanton slaughter represents a turning point, as even the staunchest defenders of the Zionist state are scrambling to find the words to justify what happened when Palestinians mobilised in their thousands to walk towards the homeland stolen from them by what has been called “Jewish terrorism” in 1948.

Israel does not want the world to know that the UN recognised decades ago that the Palestinians have every right under international law to return to their land.

The treasonous gropers plans to be lauded for his ''peace making'' is a dismal failure. Wait...wasn't it his son-in-law who was tasked with that project? And didn't little princess perfect attend some of the events? So much for their diplomatic skills and insights.
