And Israelis mobs attack Palestinians on the street, and they kill them by the thousands in Gaza and the West Bank.
Including the four hundred dead children this month.
Where do you come up with this crap? You running out of propaganda to post?
Why not claim Gaza is the most densely populated place on the planet? You lie every day anyway.

One Israeli mob attacked Arabs on the street. This is a regular occurence in 95% of Arab areas whether Palestinians or Israeli Arabs.

STILL WONDERING WHERE YOU WERE WHEN JEWISH WOMEN AND CHILDREN WERE BEING BLOWN UP BY THE HUNDREDS 10 YEARS AGO BY PALESTINIANS "CIVILIANS"? so much for you caring for women and children. Or do Jews not count?

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/06/world/middl...
The Times analysis, looking at 1,431 names, shows that the population most likely to be militants, men ages 20 to 29, is also the most overrepresented in the death toll: They are 9 percent of Gaza’s 1.7 million residents, but 34 percent of those killed whose ages were provided. At the same time, women and children under 15, the least likely to be legitimate targets, were the most underrepresented, making up 71 percent of the population and 33 percent of the known-age casualties.

There are also plenty of reporters from around the world who once leaving Gaza are very open about the facts that Israel supporters here have been saying for weeks.
That they use civilian areas and civilians as a main tactic.

Gee, I wonder why that is?
Israelis have only killed 9,000 Palestinians in the last ten years or so, that's hardly a thousand a year!
And clear, Israel is going to give the land they took in the war they started someday!
These chants came long before Israel existed by these Arabs grandparents. Nice try in blaming Israel for everything as usual. It was their grand parents who carried out massacres against INDIGENOUS Jews throughout the region long before Israel existed.

9,000? Where do you get that figure from? and interesting that you NEVER differentiate between terrorist and civilian.
Suppose you also blamed Israel for the mythical Jenin Massacre.

Land to which country exactly? What about all the land in the West Bank and Gaza that Jews legally own? DO YOU BELIEVE JEWS DESERVE THEIR PROPERTY BACK ALSO?

Don;t start a war unless you're prepared for casualties. And with the promise of 72 Virgins 9,000 sounds rather miniscule.

Two young Arabs were hospitalized Friday evening after being severely beaten in the Neveh Ya’acov neighborhood of Jerusalem, allegedly by a mob of Jewish youths.

According to police, the victims, Amir Shawiki and Ahmed Kasuani, both 20 and residents of east Jerusalem’s Beit Hanina neighborhood, claimed to have been approached by two suspects asking for a cigarette, and were subsequently attacked by a dozen others.

Although an ambulance arrived at the scene, police said both men were taken to Hadassah University Medical Center, in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem, by family in a private car.

“They were taken to the hospital, where police took their testimony, and they then asked to be transferred to Al-Makassed Hospital in east Jerusalem,” said Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.

Why Dems and Republicans Bow to the Israel Lobby
by John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, Truthdig

The real reason why American politicians are so deferential [to Israel] is the political power of the Israel lobby. The lobby is a loose coalition of individuals and organizations that actively works to move U.S. foreign policy in a pro-Israel direction. It is not a single, unified movement with a central leadership, and it is certainly not a cabal or conspiracy that "controls" U.S. foreign policy. It is simply a powerful interest group, made up of both Jews and gentiles, whose acknowledged purpose is to press Israel's case within the United States and influence American foreign policy in ways that its members believe will benefit the Jewish state.

Yonatan Shapira, Former Captain in the Israeli Air Force and Black Hawk pilot squadron. In 2003 he authored “The Pilots’ Letter,” refusing to participate in attacks in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
Democracy Now, January 22, 2008

Now they [Israeli army] use more drones and unmanned planes to do these crimes. They don’t need anymore to convince the pilots to shoot in Gaza, although there are many attacks by attack helicopters like Apache and stuff like that. But I think that many of the missions are done by the commander, that he can sit far away in a closed room in a commander ship in Tel Aviv or something like that and just press a button, and people are getting killed. And this distance between the decision to the result is what I think in the history calls the most horrible crimes ever... Israel is selling these drones to other countries. It’s one of our top products in the military industry that is blooming in a way. You know, the occupation is not so bad for some people in my society and in your society. It’s actually benefiting many people.

Remember kids. Most products made in israel start with the bar code 871 or 729.

Since they won't stop the genocide because of concern for human life, maybe they'll stop because of concern over how much they have in their wallets.

If you only have to boycott one company in protest at the actions of Israel, choose coca cola.

Thank you. Make sure you get the word out about which bar codes to boycott. That is the best way to do this. Put it on Facebook and all the social media. Keep it up on a daily basis.

Or, perhaps Hamas should grow a pair and quit using innocent children and civilians as shields. Hmm? Who has been constructing tunnels under Israel? These groups such as Hamas, Al Qaeda are nothing but wussies who enjoy bullying others around. They shall be eradicated, as well as their supporters. Now, let me crack open this ice cold Coke! dunce

Education is the key

Here something for many to consider!

Helen Keller, 1940
"
Strike against war, for without you no battles can be fought! Strike against manufacturing shrapnel and gas bombs and all other tools of murder! Strike against preparedness that means death and misery to millions of human beings! Be not dumb, obedient slaves in an army of destruction! Be heroes in an army of construction
