You mean when the lead the stories with two Israelis were killed today and also eight members of a Palestinian family?
How dare network news report Israelis deliberately targeting hospitals and UN schools and with the death toll over 800, how they color the facts by reporting that 75 percent of the fatalities are civilian bystanders?
That Israelis are firing directly into buildings they know have HUNDREDS of people in them?

Both sides?

Israelis have killed over 800 Palestinians in Palestine.

Hamas has killed two people in Israel.

Here's a thought... let's give each death equal time.

PS: Israel occupies Palestine.
Palestine does not occupy Israel.

We stop it by cutting Israel off the US dole.

"Every day new crimes are committed and over 80% of the victims are civilians. Children, women, hospitals, UN schools … the Israeli soldiers respect nothing.

"This is a military attack against the Palestinian population."

More than 15 women, children and United Nations staff were killed and about 200 injured on Thursday morning when Israel shelled a UN school sheltering hundreds of Palestinians fleeing the violence."

•When you prevent Palestinians from fishing in their own waters, and destroy their boats when they try: are you the Israel God intends?

•When you prevent Palestinians from traveling, to study, to see our world's wonders, to visit family, to visit their own spouses: are you the Israel God intends?

•When your armies destroy Palestinian homes, hospitals, schools, Mosques, farms and fruit-trees in order to maintain "no-go" zones: are you the Israel God intends?

•When you restrict Palestinians to half the electricity, and a quarter of the water that an Israeli receives: are you the Israel God intends?

•When you hold onto all the land you claimed from active warfare since 1967, a crime according to International Law -- the same International Law that made you a State in the first place: are you the Israel God intends?

•When you maintain a belligerent 47-year long occupation, at the cost of tens of thousands of innocent lives lost and millions of lives lived under oppression: are you the Israel God intends?

Quite ignorant enough to dispute your whole diatribe in just a few sentences.

What interest would a Palestinian have in access to Israel, a country they question and opt to have eradicated anyways?

Israel left Gaza long ago. The promise by Palestinians and the UN was that it would become another SIngapore.

When was the last time Singapore shot rockets off at its neighbors?

It is still zionist propaganda. That is no excuse to murder innocent women and children. israel is the aggressor here. The only way to stop this murder of babies is to stop Israeli aggression. Do not try to twist reality with me. It will not work. I am a clear thinker, not a confused idiot like you.
So the Zionists make Hamas tell the truth? Any more jokes? Perfidy is a war crime and any deaths are directly the responsibility of Hamas. They are war criminals.

Irrelevant opinion on your part.

Cherry picking does not help. Read my post carefully? Any human feelings?

Remember Arabs or Muslims never massacred Jews in history. Where was Moses, huh?
