By the way, as I was writing that, 5 ROCKETS WERE FIRED AT ISRAEL. I can assure you all were intercepted by the iron dome and no one got hurt in israel in those attacks. Just so you know! :) am yisrael chai!
You have no idea how angry i was when I recieved this message, I was close to just throw insults at you but that is not the way to make you listen. You have clearly been misinformed, so let me explain why you are wrong instead. Grab a chair and let me educate you.
"You realize hamas has been telling their people to die for their weapons, and ATTEMPTING to blow up israel"
Yes, I am aware of the suicide bombers, but this is an invalid argument. Hamas never forced citizens to die for them, everyone who went into those missions were Hamas volunteers, who out of desperation tried to defend their land. The last suicide bomber from Hamas exploded January 18th 2005, and I also need to add that Israel had a lot of suicide bombers too. Between 1993 and 2006 Palestinians killed 643 people while the Israelis killed 3638 people (among them 148 children under the age of 15) in the period 2000-2006. x (note: this is a Danish source, but you can still see the numbers are right). However, this is completely irrelevant right now.
There was a rumor about Hamas using citizens as human shields, but it’s confirmed to be false. The video showed is from Syria, not to mention MORE THAN FIVE MONTHS OLD. x
As you said, Today, the only thing Palestine has is fireworks, which barely does any damage at all. The death count of Israel is one person while 274 Palestinians have died in the last 10 days. There are more than 1500 Palestinians wounded, and only 2 or 3 Israelis. Over 900 homes destroyed, while only one building in Israel is.
This is the aftermath of one of Hamas’s rockets compared to the damage of the Israeli bombs. Don’t make it sound like Israel is the victim.
"while israel is protecting their citizens 24/7 and using weapons to protect their citizens (using the iron dome) AND GAZA! Israel invaded gaza after giving the citizens of gaza and advised them to evacuate before invading.
Israel don’t have a tough time protecting their citizens, because THERE IS NOTHING TO PROTECT THEM FROM.
These are actual pictures of Israeli people in their bomb shelters. THEY ARE USING #BOMBSHELTERSELFIES AND COMPLAINING ABOUT THEIR HAIR WHILE THOUSANDS ARE WOUNDED IN PALESTINE.
THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE IN GAZA
Palestine has NO ARMY OR WEAPONS, THEY CAN NOT DEFEND THEMSELVES. Israel warns the citizens 56 seconds before a bomb BY USING A SMALLER WARNING BOMB ON THE ROOF OF THE HOUSE. Besides, THE CITIZENS HAVE NOWHERE TO GO.
Israel controls all the movement of the citizens and its borders. They obviously can’t cross the border to Israel, and no one is allowed to cross the border to Egypt either, and as you can see on the map below they can’t go by sea either.
Israel invaded to destroy their weapons, not to kill anyone.”
That is not true, at all.
- Israel fired 5 missiles at a hospital in Gaza and had threatened to do it again. x
- Blew up a mosque, a school and a charity building.
- A 15-year old Palestinian boy was forced to drink gasoline and SET ON FIRE.
- Hundreds of Palestinians are dead and thousands are wounded.
Not to mention:
- Israel has broken over 65 UN resolutions.
- Their government is paying college students to pro-Israel propaganda on social media. x
- Three Israeli boys were kidnapped and it’s confirmed Hamas has nothing to do with it, though the citizens of Israel were told the opposite.
Bonus fact: According to major polls, the majority of Israelis and Palestinians agree that a two-state solution is the best way to end the conflict. x
And last of all, there’s nothing for Israel to win. This is not a war, this is genocide. If you had read any of the posts (with legit sources) floating around on this website I wouldn’t have to explain this. As Kathlyn Gadd said; “Blaming Hamas for firing rockets at Israel is like blaming a woman for punching her rapist.”
"Israel does its best to prevent civilian casualties"
*targets and bombs all the places that help save civilian lives*
Listen to the children.. #GazaUnderAttack London march on Israeli Embassy
19 July 2014
Israeli sniper shoots Palestinian civilian searching for his family, then shoots him again as he lies wounded in the rubble.
About 36 hours ago, I spoke out against the Israeli invasion and slaughter of Gaza, within that 36 hours, I have lost over 1,000 follows, received dozens of hate messages and death threats, and people are now threatening to “take down” my tumblr. People have also concluded that I am Muslim and part of Hamas, despite the fact that I am an Atheist and look at all religion as false. I literally cannot decide whether to be more amused or disgusted. I cannot fathom why we are once again defending Israel when they have now killed over 500 innocent people, 70% of which are children and women. They are not defending themselves, they are committing terrorism in a land they want as their own. Their citizens have literally started camping on a mountain to watch and cheer as rockets fall on Gaza, home to 1.8 million people. As I have said many times, both sides are scum for putting innocent people at risk, but if you believe Israel is only “defending” themselves or that they are somehow on an equal playing field, you are extremely misinformed. If you would not trade places with someone in Gaza right now over someone in Israel, that means you know the truth but choose to ignore it. I just cannot believe that I am getting death threats for wanting peace. I try to see the best in humanity, but right now, I see no humanity.
And the rest of the world is just watching
Gaza, 17 July 2014 (by Saaed Rafiq Al Madhoun, CARE International Programme Officer)
My boy is only three years old. He feels stressed and depressed and last night after hearing the explosions he said to my wife, “I feel that I will die”.
He is only three-years old. It makes us so sad. It was such a terrible surprise to hear him say this, we feel very bad.
He says he is feeling sick, at the noise of the explosions. He is crying at night and cannot sleep, so my wife and I try to massage him to calm him down.
My wife is very afraid for the children. She is able to feed my five-month old baby but it is stressful.
We feel that there is no safe place – any movement outside and you could be targeted. If I go to my brother’s house, are we any safer there?
The water gets cut off when there is no electricity. I’m trying to keep reserves of water – we need to be able to sterilise things for the baby when we can.
I left the home to do some shopping during the ceasefire, to get some basics for my kids. We have just a short period of time before it starts again. It was very crowded in the streets because of the limited time. The prices were normal but there was not very much available.
I also went to check on the CARE office to see that it was OK. I want to go back to work to help support all of the vulnerable people. I am more than happy to do this but it is difficult because we cannot move without being targeted.
If this situation continues like now it will be a real crisis. We don’t know when it will finish. I am really hoping for a long-term ceasefire and that it will calm down.
It’s hard for my family, for my friends and colleagues, for all Gazans to live in this crisis. We just hope it will end soon. In six years there have been three wars.
It’s difficult for all of us, but especially the children.
I ask the world, and all of the humanitarian community, to try to make a ceasefire that will last for years not hours. We ask that the violence stops. We cannot continue living in this situation, but we also cannot leave Gaza.
We ask the world to make it stop and do their best for the people of Gaza. It is enough now.

Till this moment the number of martyrs have reached more than 320 martyrs,and more than 2,290 injuries, most of them are Children !!
But listen, they are not numbers!
Some of them have just graduated successfully from high school,and were going to be doctors!
Maybe one of them was brilliant at drawing pictures,but the rocket’s fragments have cut his hands!
A child who may lead Palestine’s national team for the world cup!
Another one who might be genius,and would prepare a research about the alternative energy and how to produce electricity by using it!
Maybe there was someone who cares about Art,and may win the Oscar for one of his works!
Maybe one of them was a rich man,who was shading many poor families that we did not know about!
Maybe one of them was a woman who was thinking about how special her wedding anniversary is going to be!
And maybe one of them was a diplomatic,who has never let the olive’s bough fall down from his hand!
Maybe one of them was going to be a smart religious man!
Or someone who used to enjoy matching roses!
MAYBE there were more than all of this !!
Please SHARE to tell the whole world the TRUTH
