They SAY this:

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest: 'Shelling of UN facility that is housing innocent civilians is totally unacceptable and totally indefensible' - @mozgovaya

While they DO this:


US Agrees To Replenish Israeli Bullets/Bombs That Killed Palestinians - U.S. to "sell" Israel munitions to renew stock after Operation Pillar of Defense

According to a latest deal, the United States is going to sell munitions worth $647 million to Israel in order to reinforce inventory of Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

Apparently, to compensate the IDF, the US is replenishing weapons’ stock of Israel. Under the deal, the US is going to provide Israel with 10,000 bombs of numerous kinds. The list includes 3,450 bombs weighing a ton each, 1,725 bombs weighing 250 kilograms each, 1,725 BLU-109 bunker-buster bombs and 3,450 GBU-39 bunker-buster bombs intended for fortified targets with minimal impact in order to prevent harm to innocent civilians. The US Department of Defense has also notified Congress of the sale.

The US didn't directly condemn Israel, the state department avoided assigning blame by merely condemning the act of shelling that UN school.

We got to be getting tired of talking about this Israel thing. I can't wait till the Media moves on to something else more important.

Isn't it blatantly obvious who did it? I'm sure it wasn't Russia.

Haven't the Palestinians suffered enough? When is this going to end? How can the US be accomplice of this? What credibility a nation haves after this?

Please protest for the cause of Justice!

You are suing Obama.. for medical care? Why don't you sue him for giving more weapons to Israelis use against Palestinians?

Who are the terrorists here?

If you lived in a country, where 80% of your land was occupied by Zionist, wouldn't you be Hamas.

Palestinians in Gaza don't have electricity and water by consequence of energy failure.

All Palestinians are Hamas. If I lived there I would be Hamas too. I would be the Resistance Against Zionist Terrorists.

HYPOCRISY


The United States confirmed it had restocked Israel's supplies of ammunition, hours after issuing a strong condemnation of an attack on a United Nations school in Gaza




The Israeli military requested additional ammunition to restock its dwindling supplies on July 20, the Pentagon said. The US Defense Department approved the sale just three days later.

Oh right...

Nice to see an increase in transparency from the US government there. I mean, as completely hypocritical BS goes, this is as transparent as it gets!

They cannot in good faith, say that they deplore the shelling of a school, while providing the very people who launched that shelling with more ammunition, which, one must assume, will also end up wrecking the mortal frames of innocent people. This is the most Janus faced bit of foreign affairs blather I have heard out of the US for a considerable time, and I am appalled.

Just pointing out that your headline is slightly misleading as the US did not condemn Israel.


The U.S. "condemns the shelling of a UNRWA school in Gaza, which reportedly killed and injured innocent Palestinians — including children — and U.N. humanitarian workers," said National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan. "We also condemn those responsible for hiding weapons in United Nations facilities in Gaza. All of these actions, and similar ones earlier in the conflict, are inconsistent with the U.N.'s neutrality."

The Israeli military said it was investigating the shelling at the U.N. Relief and Works Agency site and suggested that its soldiers had come under fire from Hamas militants.

In condemning the action but not naming an actor, the U.S. statement illustrated how the administration tries to tread a line: expressing unhappiness without overly straining a relationship with Israel marked by tension on and off throughout President Obama's tenure.

It reads to me like more of a direct condemnation of Hamas.

I think it's time for a civil intervention. Organize a massive group of every nation willing to take part, fly to Tel aviv, organize a rendezvous point and march right down to the front lines 100,000 strong. Bring a tent and water and just camp. Call up the press and let them know we're on our way. I've never seen that done before other than the Occupy movement in safe areas. War zones? Never in history. I'm getting tired of reading people's frustrations and seeing nothing get done about it. Government will never intervene; if you really want something done right, you have to do it yourself. Unfortunately.

Ah the Holy Land. In the name of God I slaughter thee. God's will I guess.

You know there is currently a proposal to divide California into several separate states. Perhaps we could create a new Israel in one of them? I mean LA already has a huge Jewish population. Bill Maher could be PM.

Personally I wouldn't feel so bad if my tax dollars were not being used to arm Israel. Then it would just be another anonymous genocide in the sick world in which we live. It is hard to watch and hard to ignore but I will keep trying.

The Isreali's are marching in Tel Aviv opposing the violence, problem is the martches keep getting stopped because of Hamas rockets.

Read it again. They're definitely condemning Israel but are afraid to openly say, "We condemn Israel..."

Marches to where exactly? I know Israelis are split there but to what extent are they actually protesting? How many rockets actually get past the Iron dome anyway?
