So talks are over and out of the question now,
should we expect to see increased activity and
bombing?



600 children injured... that is just wrong. they have
no part in this. I know war is cruel but man that
seems like a high number for this early into it.

i dont see any way the rest of the world can not get involved.
cant see them sitting by and allowing more children to be hurt
and killed just because they are in the wrong place at the
wrong time.


darn it, not feeling good again, gota go lay down
for a bit... will check in when i get back up.

Rumor has been all week that the IDF would begin ground operations sometime between today and Tuesday.

That's exactly what will happen. The US will and does back Israel regardless of who they target. I mean the IDF intentionally targeted journalists. What does the US have to say about that? Nothing at all. So don't expect any of the major world powers to do anything against Israel.

consequences, not backing...

Update :

- 71 Palestinians killed including 25 children since beginning, 230 children injured among 600 injured via @harryfear

- About 500 Egyptian activists have crossed into Gaza 2 deliver medical supplies & show support for Gazans @PaulaSlier_RT

- Americans protest against Israeli violence on Gaza


On Friday, CBS covered a protest held in New York near the Israeli Consulate, in which protesters shouted and waved signs calling for an end to the deadly violence by Israeli forces.

NBC also reported hundreds of protesters marching and chanting "Free, Free Palestine," in Chicago on Thursday, which ended outside President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign headquarters. The activists also protested at the Obama Administration's continued support of Israel.

In fact, here is the video of the Israeli airstrike on that media center. It was intentionally targeted. There were journalists from Sky News, The Guardian and other news agencies in there. It is highly unlikely that the Israeli military had no idea who was in that building. You don't cram a high-rise full of international journalists and not know about it. This is a war crime and unfortunately it will go unpunished.

And tbh if I was living in those flats and some terrorist group moved a miss launcher into the basement, I'd go stay at my mums

They are for condemning their own people to death

Wtf do they think is going to happen ? Oh we'll let them off and continue to fire missiles our country as we don't want to hurt any innocents ?

You have to break a few eggs to make an omelette


So you are telling me that a high rise, filled with dozens of journalists from around the globe, had rocket launchers either on it or underground? Somehow I incredibly doubt that these journalists are stupid. They have permanent offices in this building. They didn't just walk into Gaza and say "hey lets pick this building."

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for all the information. Does anybody know which updated links I can use to listen to the sound from Gaza or Israel? I have a couple videos but they don't have any sound or the sound is in and out. Thanks!

"Hamas's propaganda is, if anything, even more aggressive and ham-handed, hence Goldberg's comment. The @alqassambrigade Twitter account is generally accepted as an English language outlet for Hamas's military wing (though there is some room for doubt) and has not only issued its share of chest-thumping and threats, but frequently inaccurate information. On Friday, the account falsely claimed that an Israeli jet had been shot down over Gaza.

More usually are simply absurd claims like this one from yesterday, saying the war is "going well in achieving historic goals, Liberation of occupied Palestine started ... we are coming IDF." Hamas does not have the ability to take any of the fight to the IDF, let alone defeat Israel." FROM: the christian science monitor

It's amazing that only six people were hurt. It's almost like the Israelis warned the media that it was going to happen several hours ahead of time. Oh, they did.

much earlier on this thread someone posted a twitter, I think, stating that eight bus loads of Egyptians
were enroute to Gaza.
Has this been confirmed? or anymore heard about this?
I have been trying to keep up in between errands and household chores.

These could be the same souls that are being held from entering for their own safety.

Anyone know where they are?

And on Egypt's border with Gaza, about 500 Egyptian protesters crossed into the territory on Sunday in what their leader said was a show of solidarity with the Palestinians. They raised Palestinians flags and chanted, "We are the youth of January 25 revolution, Palestine will be free! Open the crossing, Israel is the enemy!"

"We have broken the siege," said Rami Shaath, the group's main organizer. "The Arab Spring has changed the region. We are happy to go in to support our Palestinian brothers, but it's sad to hear the explosions of the Israeli bombing of Gaza all the way on the Egyptian side. We brought in small amounts medical supplies, food, and water, but our main message is political support to the Gazans."
