Massively Deadly Gaza Protests

Death count exceeding 52, the latest chapter in the highly contentious and controversial Israel-Palestine conflict, this time launched by people who are angry that the US Embassy in Israel was moved to Jerusalem, which is now recognized as the Israeli capital by the US government.

A lot of good fencing was lost that day.
Does anyone take Donald Trump seriously, anymore?

Le sigh.  Yeah there was a lot of death but apparently 80% of those killed were Hamas agents.

Ironbite-so.....it's a bloody mess.

Sadly, just about everything involving the Middle East is a bloody mess.

The IDF is killing medics attempting to treat Palestinians wounded by IDF fire.

That the US (and, oh, say, Canada) continues to support Israel instead of slapping massive sanctions on them and forcing them into a deal with Palestine is utterly shameful.

Someone tell Trump that THIS is why no one else recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital. All he's done is embolden Israel's expansionism and piss off everyone else with any interest in the conflict.

But Trump doesn't care. Trump only cares about 30 percent of the US population.

Tell Chuck Schumer too while you're at it.

Trump doesn't even care about that part either.

For the most part, Trump only seems to care about people conditionally.

Trump only cares about one person: himself.

And sometimes Ivanka, but only because he wishes incest wasn't illegal.

No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Damnit Israel, if you didn't shoot innocent people then you wouldn't need to lie about it either.

Yes, but as far as Israel's concerned, no Palestinian is innocent, nor are their sympathizers, and the worst are the medics who heal the soldiers to fight again, and second are the journalists who expose Israel's war crimes.
