Israel threatened Nixon with launching 13 bombers stuffed with nukes if Nixon refused to send them military and financial aid back in the 60's.
If they were willing to start a nuclear armageddon to get what they wanted, slaughtering 3 innocent teenagers isn't going to cause them any problems whatsoever.
They murdered them, buried them and them found them again and cue the crocodile tears and gnashing of teeth...instant excuse to crush the locals yet again.
Quite surprised they didn't murder an entire school bus load of kids tbh....perhaps the old guard is looking at their clocks and are worried how murdering so many innocents would go down in the hereafter.

Hey ATSers.. im new.. have been keeping up with posts for a couple years now but just made an account since i never thought i knew enough to comment and plus i was an 17 years old kid.. anyways what i'd like to say in this case is that from a neutral point of view i have a few things:
1. the israeli government still hasn't put forth any evidence of hamas involvement which leaves loose ends as to who could've done it.. could be anyone.. so imo any sane authority would gather facts and put up appropriate charges against anyone they believe is the culprit.. they would build a case against them.. the israeli authority instead just took 300 odd palestinians into detention (probably more, even the msm is reporting more in certain places) and barged into homes.. destroyed them.. and in the process some have gotten killed, 5 i heard.. and in defense they have said they tried to minimise civilian loss as much as they could while they tried to locate the teens and basically hamas is responsible for palestinians being mistreated and even killed since they are the ones who kidnapped/killed the three isrealis (while still not providing any evidence of their involvement).. i find this sorta ridiculous and hypocritical.. i mean even at the least a portion of those detained are innocent civilians..
2. i kinda think the israelis are exploiting the tragedy to further their anti unity govt agenda.. which is shameful.. and the whole incident entirely shifts the spotlight away from the jewish settlements in the occupied west bank issue.. especially when the israelis were facing some criticism internationally
ps. pls excuse any errors, i'm new to this
So...you and your family live in the woods and are surrounded by hungry wolves who would love to make a meal out of you. There are no other animals around, just the wolves. You do your best to avoid their attempted attacks, throwing sticks and stones when they come too close. One morning, you find your child torn apart and half eaten. So...did a wolf kill your child? And if not, considering there are no other animals...who did?

inhumane treatment Palestinians are facing from Israel is helping the extremists on the Palestinian side...
And herein lies the problem, The Palestinians need to make a stand as a nation, against the extremists, as does Israel

Just saw this
PzFeed Top News
BREAKING NEWS: Israel bombing Gaza with armed boats, F-16's and Apache helicopters following deadly discovery of three boys.
And the part that was left out (as usual) is that Gaza was launching rockets into Israel first and the Israelis responded by hitting the launch sites as they always do, business as usual, and not because of the murdered boys... But the truth isn't as sensational, so it gets bent a little bit.
I know MANY people who travel to Israel, i may go there soon myself.
Please tell us, how is the Crime Rate there, and why does everyone automatically believe this was not some kind of OTHER violence subjected to these 3 ?
The way I see it, Israeli on Israeli violence is as bad as anywhere on the earth, but of course this could not be something other than HAMAS.
Not alot of free-thinkers or questioners there huh, well I am coming soon !!
Israeli leaders have appealed for calm after the discovery of a kidnapped Palestinian teenager's body sparked clashes in East Jerusalem.

According to the past and DNA evidence no the modern palestinians are not related to any of the historic tribes that lived in that area. They are all refugees from surrounding countries after that war the arabs sprung on them a while back.
