The powers that be always understate the amount of people at protest marches especially if it is not what the powers that be are trying to support. Great to hear so many people care about the Palestinians.

Excellent news!!

I believe it is safe to say the tide is turning!

You will not find it on the TV, however every aspect of corruption is currently being challenged by we the people!

I have been absolutely outraged at the coverage of Gaza on the Nightly News in the US, because "He who controls the Media, controls the message" is ringing loud and clear, every item I have seen talks about the travesty of 1 or 2 missing IDF Soldiers while ignoring the murdering of 100's of Civilians in Palestine. I saw O'bummer hang his head in shame approving Millions more to the Israeli Murders. WTF, speak Up!

Like I have said before, "the tide is turning".
The next generation will be even more critical of israel, if it lasts that long.
Maybe they should stop killing and pursue peace.

The fact that Americans are actually protesting these crimes is giving me new faith in my countrypersons. Let us show the world that we ARE on the right side of this matter.

Thumbs decidedly up.

Unfortunately I didn't get to follow a lot of what happened during the rally. However, this stood out to me: During the rally earlier an interview was talking about this: "Palestinian-American gets short shrift from Congress member"- Source


According to video footage and witness statements, Tariq Abu Khdeir was on his way home from his cousin Mohammad Abu Khdeir’s funeral procession when he was cornered in his uncle’s yard by masked men, beaten unconscious, and repeatedly struck in the head even after losing consciousness.

The then concerned family member was "kicked out" of Florida's Rep Kathy Castor's office.

The concern is being ignored by many politicians.

TPTB had better tread carefully in the coming months/years. With each generation - they are losing more control as the youth are waking up to the absolute bull# being shoveled down are throats. Nobody young supports Israel, or the US Gov for that matter.

It takes a hell of a lot to actually get Americans out in the street and protesting - when that happens you know the people really are fed up with something.

One of these days, the protest will not come to a halt at those gates.

We The People have every reason and right to burn that baby down.

If the people of the world want to stop the violence there, then go there, and when Hamas launches rockets indiscriminately towards Israel during a ceasefire as has happened how many times now?
They go where the rocket was launched from and beat the crap out of the idiots that have just brought deserved immediate retaliation upon the people of Gaza

How's about them apples?

Agree.

What is wrong with these people? They cannot read?

Read their damned Charter. Very difficult to make peace with an enemy who has publicly declared that they will relentlessly continue to try and kill you.

middleeast.about.com...

Hamas' charter calls for the destruction of the State of Israel and its replacement with a Palestinian Islamic state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.





Preamble

Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious. It needs all sincere efforts. It is a step that inevitably should be followed by other steps. The Movement is but one squadron that should be supported by more and more squadrons from this vast Arab and Islamic world, until the enemy is vanquished and Allah's victory is realized.

Article Seven:
"The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews." (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim).

Article Thirteen: Peaceful Solutions, [Peace] Initiatives and International Conferences: [Peace] initiatives, the so-called peaceful solutions, and the international conferences to resolve the Palestinian problem, are all contrary to the beliefs of the Islamic Resistance Movement. For renouncing any part of Palestine means renouncing part of the religion; the nationalism of the Islamic Resistance Movement is part of its faith, the movement educates its members to adhere to its principles and to raise the banner of Allah over their homeland as they fight their Jihad: “Allah is the all-powerful, but most people are not aware.” From time to time a clamoring is voiced, to hold an International Conference in search for a solution to the problem. Some accept the idea, others reject it, for one reason or another, demanding the implementation of this or that condition, as a prerequisite for agreeing to convene the Conference or for participating in it. But the Islamic Resistance Movement, which is aware of the [prospective] parties to this conference, and of their past and present positions towards the problems of the Muslims, does not believe that those conferences are capable of responding to demands, or of restoring rights or doing justice to the oppressed. Those conferences are no more than a means to appoint the nonbelievers as arbitrators in the lands of Islam. Since when did the Unbelievers do justice to the Believers? “And the Jews will not be pleased with thee, nor will the Christians, till thou follow their creed. Say: Lo! the guidance of Allah [himself] is the Guidance. And if you should follow their desires after the knowledge which has come unto thee, then you would have from Allah no protecting friend nor helper.” Sura 2 (the Cow), verse 120 There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except by Jihad. The initiatives, proposals and International Conferences are but a waste of time, an exercise in futility. The Palestinian people are too noble to have their future, their right and their destiny submitted to a vain game. As the hadith has it: “The people of Syria are Allah’s whip on this land; He takes revenge by their intermediary from whoever he wished among his worshipers. The Hypocrites among them are forbidden from vanquishing the true believers, and they will die in anxiety and sorrow.” (Told by Tabarani, who is traceable in ascending order of traditionaries to Muhammad, and by Ahmed whose chain of transmission is incomplete. But it is bound to be a true hadith, for both story tellers are reliable. Allah knows best.)



How can Israel have peace with an enemy who does not only not want peace but wants you exterminated or subjugated?


All of you so called bleeding hearts, where is your empathy for the 10s of thousands of Christians in the Middle East and Africa who are being beheaded, raped, sold, robbed, mutilated, etc. Oh, crickets!!! You need to hate Israel so who gives two #s about the Christians right?

Their blinders are on because they must Hate Israel first. Anyway as stated before, there will be no peace until the Palestinians love their children and fellow Palestinians more than they hate the Jews.

In 2010 Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal stated that the Charter is "a piece of history and no longer relevant, but cannot be changed for internal reasons."Hamas have moved away from their charter since they decided to go for political office.

In 2009 interviews with the BBC, Tony Blair claimed that Hamas does not accept the existence of Israel and continues to pursue their objectives through terror and violence; Sir Jeremy Greenstock however argued that they have not adopted their charter since they won the Palestinian legislative election, 2006 as part of their political program.

I see we have another member that doesn't have time for the truth but would rather just rehash the msm's propaganda.


Oh, so... The Charter is no longer relevant but their actions are the same. Adolf talked a good game as well. Actions speak louder than political words.

**SNIP** .. Where are all these thousands of rockets coming from? What does humanitarian aid go for.. more weapons. What are the tunnels from Gaza under Israel for stupid.. for offensive operations, to kill, attack, murder.

*SNIP* If Mexico was raining thousands of rockets upon your town I am sure you wouldn't be humming the tune of "do nothing" now would you? What do you expect the Israelites to freeking do? Seriously, say what you think should be done.... I know, the Israelites should just die right? Should not fight back, let the rockets continue as fast as they can be made and shot off?

Seriously....


I know Israel bashing is popular with the lib college crowd but holy crap, have a freeking brain. If the Palestinians threw down their weapons (and stopped importing more for the next offensive) there would be peace, if Israel threw down their weapons they would be annihilated, exterminated, driven into the sea to cheering crowds praising Allah. This is a fact and nobody knowingly not lying knows that is 100% true.

Why should ANYONE recognize Israel, when they themselves refuse to recognize the Palestinian people and deny them a self governed state, and refuse to declare borders! Israel, and it's bought and paid for mouthpieces, are always quick to make that statement about HAMAS and others refusing to recognize their state, but never mention Israels refusal to do the same.
Of course, as has been mentioned, when you get to control so much media, you can make sure it only reports in your favour and doesn't tell the whole story. Here in the UK, the BBC is one of the worst when it comes to that. Hell, they even make sure only staunch supporters get to be director general. Talk about a stacked deck!


Slowly the tide is turning and outrage gathers pace. In the meantime of course, I have noticed news stories appearing whining about the increase in "Ant-Semitic attacks" in Europe! Playing victim all the time is their defence model and is brought up every time they go on a killing spree. However, they are also well known for faking a lot, and have been caught doing so plenty of times. When your only defence is to claim victimhood, not deny the actions of your government, then it's time to give it up.

Great questions! Shall we un-recognize Isreal as a sovereign nation and finish the European trend of scapegoating and exterminating them? Tell us what you feel. Tell us about your "Solution" to these millions of Jews living in Israel. What do you think should be done? Have you thought that out yet or is your answer a little genocidal?

Regardless, Israel is a recognized nation. Now what?

Deal!

As long as you go remove every illegal settlement and illegal boot on the ground which is outside of Israeli borders. Not made up borders either, the one that were assigned by the UN when Israel was founded.

Only one group of genocidal animals there, and they are the invaders! Why should any solution to the problem involve genocide? Simple application of international law should suffice, along with disarmament of both sides and a protection force in place to ensure both sides comply.
After all, we have invaded other nations and instigated "regime change" for a hell of a lot less than Israel is guilty of.
