If we held Israel to the same standards we do for other countries on human rights and expansionism we would have dumped them long ago. Our hypocrisy on this point is the single biggest obstacle to mideast peace. We defend Israel doing the same thing that we criticize others for. The only religious aspect to our dealings with any country is to recognize that religious zealots running a country is dangerous. God could tell them to do anything and we are treaty bound to back them up.
...plain and simple = Israel is defending herself
Israel is not defending itself.
This is just a lie. You can argue Israeli policies started this. I would say it’s a bogus argument, but at least it’s open for debate. But it’s fact that Israel military actions are because of rockets fired into Israel.
This is but the latest shots in a conflict that has been ongoing since before the founding of the Jewish state. The people who started it all are long dead. I blame everyone who can't get past the thirst for vengeance and do the right thing for their people. We are talking about Israel because they have all the power in this situation and are using it badly.
we’re talking about current events and Israel’s military operations currently. It’s a fact that they are a direct result of rockets being fired into Israel, which is by definition self defense. You should say you misspoke otherwise you are lying. Period.

Do the Palestinians have the right to self-defense as well? This natural right does not apply when some really poor people are sitting on land or resources someone more powerful wants. Western culture never even develops sympathy for these in-the-way-people until they are practically extinct.

So firing rockets at civilian homes without provocation of violence is something you call self defense?

The Israelis are using this opportunity to do what they have always wanted, to murder as many Palestinians as possible wherever and whenever they can
It’s a fact that they are a direct result of rockets being fired into Israel, which is by definition self defense.
Murdering is not self defense
You should say you misspoke otherwise you are lying. Period.
I am not lying. I have provided lots of direct evidence of IDF snipers murdering Palestinian children. If you call this self-defense, then you are lying to yourself and the blood of these children is on your hands.

A other one who would defend Neocon Netty no matter what. Hit him with a spitball in class? Well he’ll show YOU!

Then he comes over at 3 AM and pitches Molotov cocktails through your windows and burns your entire family alive.

In the wake of steps taken by the Trump administration and Israel to cement the county’s control over the Palestinian territories, hope for a resolution to the decades-old crisis is at a nadir.
A decision by Mahmoud Abbas, the 85-year-old leader of the unpopular semi-autonomous Palestinian Authority, to postpone planned elections has added frustration for Palestinians, whose last parliamentary ballot was in 2006.
Meanwhile, an Israeli election in March further emboldened Israel’s far right, bringing a party of Jewish ultranationalists allied with the prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, into parliament.

What has happened since then?

A month ago, the Muslim holy month of Ramadan began, and Palestinians have complained of what they say are unnecessarily severe restrictions by Israeli police, who prevented them from gathering on steps outside the Old City – an unofficial tradition after evening prayers.
Amid rising tensions, there was an increase in communal violence, with videos shared online of street harassment and several attacks between Jews and Palestinians. Events came to a head in late April when hundreds of far-right Israelis marched down city streets chanting “death to Arabs” and confronted Palestinians.

How did it escalate over the past week?

Anger built ahead of an Israeli court ruling, which was due on Monday, on whether authorities would evict dozens of Palestinians from the majority-Arab East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Sheikh Jarrah and give their homes to Jewish settlers.
On the same day, thousands of flag-waving Israeli nationalists were due to march through Muslim neighbourhoods in the Old City in a provocative parade that celebrated Israel’s capture of the city in 1967.
By Monday, the court date had been delayed and the march was rerouted, but by that point, the situation has already spiralled.

Israel is committing the crime of apartheid, rights group says

Human Rights Watch has accused Israeli officials of committing the crimes of apartheid and persecution, claiming the government enforces an overarching policy to “maintain the domination by Jewish Israelis over Palestinians”.
In a report released on Tuesday, the New York-based advocacy group became the first major international rights body to level such allegations. It said that after decades of warnings that an entrenched hold over Palestinian life could lead to apartheid, it had found that the “threshold” had been crossed.

This is another land grab.. The Israelis attacked the mosque, the Palestinians responded. Now Bibi can justify killing Palestinians ad taking the rest of the Old Muslm Quarter in East Jerusalem.

The Israelis have done this over and over again for 70 years... Remember when they use to steal topsoil in Lebanon and kill the farmers who resisted.. Must have been 1953.. The Israelis used machine guns.. The farmers had hoes and rakes.

Just admit you hate Jews, and have done with it.

It would be more honest.
