These pictures show the bravery, courage and resolve of the Palestinian people and no matter how many are killed, they will never be defeated.
1. When this kid faced a tank with a rock.
2. When their Mosque was bombed, it didn’t stop them from praying.
3. When this woman risked her life to help a boy caught in the attack.
4. When these kids built a sea-saw out of the rubble and refused to have their childhood taken away.
5. And when this girl recovered books from her bombed home.
Seriously, this is what israelis teach their children, that they are literally the only actual human beings worthy of life, that they are literally the chosen people of a Deity.
This is not a joke. The phrase ‘Gods chosen people’ is taken literally by these murderous bastards. Their God says that they can kill and take the land of anyone who is not Israeli. They are dong it to Yemen and Palestine at this very moment. They are fucking evil.
The Irish community in Philadelphia in solidarity with Gaza. July 27, 2014.
A day when children should be receiving gifts, and being showered with love from their parents.. are instead being mourned by their parents.
This, is their Eid.

An Israeli academic has claimed that raping wives and mothers of Palestinian Hamas militants is the only thing that could deter further terrorist attacks.
The remarks by renowned Middle East scholar Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University were made three weeks ago after the grim discovery of the bodies of the three kidnapped Israeli teenagers, but the recording was published online (in Hebrew) on Monday.
"The only thing that could deter a suicide bomber is knowing that if caught, his sister or his mother would be raped," said Kedar on Israel Radio Bet.
"It sounds very bad, but that’s the Middle East," he continued. "You have to understand the culture in which we live. The only thing that deters [Hamas leaders] is a threat to the connection between their heads and their shoulders."
To the shocked radio presenter who said that “we cannot take such steps, of course”, Kedar replied:
"I’m not talking about what we should or shouldn’t do. I’m talking about the facts. The only thing that deters a suicide bomber is the knowledge that if he pulls the trigger or blows himself up, his sister will be raped. That’s all. That’s the only thing that will bring him back home, in order to preserve his sister’s honor."
Kedar served for 25 years in the military intelligence, where he specialised in Islamic groups. He is currently a researcher at the right-wing Begin-Sadat Centre for Strategic Studies of Bar Ilan but previously worked for a shadowy organisation, the Israel Academia Monitor, which fights left-leaning academic professors.
At which point do you say ‘enough is enough’ and speak out against your hard earned tax dollars being sent to/your leaders supporting this country?
Ethnic cleansing, targeting civilians, ambulances, hospitals, harvesting organs of dead Palestinians without consent, forced sterilisation of Ethiopians, land grab, apartheid wall, illegal settlements, and now incitement to rape - is it time to wake up, world?
Do you remember how big a deal it was in the media when Israel accused Hamas of this?
Do you see how the information that Hamas weren’t behind it is not being covered by the media?
Over 1,000 dead in Gaza. This was another genocidal Zionist lie.
|Half your posts are so unfactual. It's so unfortunate. Israel's goals are not to kill children, but to protect their own.|
You are a liar. Over 600 Palestinians have been killed in the space of 2 weeks - more than 25% of whom children - and the best you can think of is ‘Israel’s goals are not to kill children’?
You’re not mistaken or ignorant, you know the truth but choose to lie in order to support Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine.
You want Palestinians to be wiped out (yep, definitely click this link) which is why you lie about Israel’s intentional killing of Palestinian children. Anyone who’s spent even a minute watching the news or on social media especially within the past two weeks has seen how the Israeli military targets innocent civilians, hospitals and ambulances.
'Half your posts are so unfactual' - the first thing you'll notice about this blog is that it's full of links to reliable sources. Read them.
And on that note:
"An Israeli army officer who fired the entire magazine of his automatic rifle into a 13-year-old Palestinian girl and then said he would have done the same even if she had been three years old was acquitted on all charges by a military court yesterday."

"HAMAS WAS HIDING IN ALL THESE PLACES SO WE HAD TO BOMB THEM TO DEFEND OURSELVES":
They hid at the El-Wafa hospital.
They hid at the Al-Aqsa hospital.
They hid at the beach, where children played football.
They hid at the yard of 75-year-old Muhammad Hamad.
They hid among the residential quarters of Shujaya.
They hid in the neighbourhoods of Zaytoun and Toffah.
They hid in Rafah and Khan Younis.
They hid in the home of the Qassan family.
They hid in the home of the poet, Othman Hussein.
They hid in the village of Khuzaa.
They hid in the thousands of houses damaged or destroyed.
They hid in 84 schools and 23 medical facilities.
They hid in a cafe, where Gazans were watching the World Cup.
They hid in the ambulances trying to retrieve the injured.
They hid themselves in 24 corpses, buried under rubble.
They hid themselves in a young woman in pink household slippers, sprawled on the pavement, taken down while fleeing.
They hid themselves in two brothers, eight and four, lying in the intensive burn care unit in Al-Shifa.
They hid themselves in the little boy whose parts were carried away by his father in a plastic shopping bag.
They hid themselves in the “incomparable chaos of bodies” arriving at Gaza hospitals.
They hid themselves in an elderly woman, lying in a pool of blood on a stone floor.
They hid themselves in a UN school where civilians were sheltering from our shells and bombs.
They also hid themselves In designated ‘safe’ spots, we waited and then we bombed the safe spots and still after all this hiding they’ve been managing to KILL our soldiers!!!
What are we to do, even the worlds getting harder to convince now……?

So far .. deaths in Gaza are mostly civilians, many are children, the current death-toll has soared to over 1,000 and is still climbing, thousands more have been injured, over 160,000 forced to flee their homes, hospitals and ambulances have been attacked, massive structural damage has been inflicted. In Israel three civilians are reported dead as a result of the conflict and forty Israeli soldiers engaged in attacks on Gaza have been killed, one of them shot accidentally by fellow Israeli troops. There is no permanent end yet in sight.
Palestinians don’t have to pay people to tweet. Millions around the world are naturally outraged. (Photo via @ on Twitter)
