Can’t say I disagree with the impulse.
But Israel isn’t even giving them a sporting chance.
That’s how you know they aren’t White. White people always give their brown opponents a sporting chance. Even when they shouldn’t.
Not so for Jews!
Israel ramped up its armoured forces along the Gaza border on Thursday in a daylight show of force, a day after a Palestinian rocket destroyed a home in southern Israel.
With the deployment clearly visible from main Israeli roads near the Gaza Strip, senior Egyptian security officials met leaders of the enclave’s ruling Hamas to try to calm tensions.
Hamas and the smaller Islamic Jihad militant group quickly denied firing the rockets.
Much may depend on the scope and intensity of a planned Palestinian protest at the border with Israel on Friday, where often violent demonstrations have been held over the past six months.
Israel has straight-up been slaughtering Palestinians in scores over the last couple of months.
And the whole Gaza situation is akin to a medieval siege.
They’ve amassed a serious tank force on the border.
A Reuters photographer counted some 60 tanks and armoured personnel carriers at a deployment area near the border, calling it the largest number he has seen there since the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas.
In Gaza, a Palestinian official said the Egyptian delegation was also in contact with Israeli leaders to curb the current tensions.
“The situation is delicate. No one wants a war,” he said.
Well… interesting analysis. Don’t know where he got that idea from. Israel has never said “no” to killing Arabs.
“Palestinian factions are demanding an end to the Israeli blockade that strangled life and business in Gaza,” the official told Reuters.
About 200 Gazans have been killed by Israeli troops since the border protests began, according to Palestinian Health Ministry figures. Palestinians have launched incendiary balloons and kites into Israel and on occasion breached an Israeli frontier fence.
Lol kites and balloons.
Israel’s response is like launching a nuke at your underdeveloped AI enemies in CIV 4.
I don’t even know why they haven’t just killed everyone in Gaza yet.
They could literally get away with gassing millions of people with chlorine gas if they wanted to and no one would say anything the next day.
Well, maybe some nations would say something, but nobody would do anything.
All this is to say that Israel is not Saudi Arabia.
You can critique Saudi Arabia, and only after they dismember a WashPo journalist.
Not so for Israel. They can kill as many journalists as they want.
