Israel: Stop the senseless killings in Gaza!

Posted on Updated on

     I have been carefully following the developments in the latest Israel-Gaza violence and all I feel like doing is screaming at Israel: STOP THE KILLINGS IN GAZA!

Israel said it has carried out 1,320 attacks on militant targets, that have included homes which it described as command centers, warehouses, smuggling tunnels and rocket launching and manufacturing sites.
Palestinian residents say some of the dwellings hit in the attacks did not belong to militants and that attacks on homes have caused numerous civilian
casualties. This time, around 130 Palestinians have been killed so far most of them civilians, according to the United Nations. This number could increase rapidly as tensions rise. The Gaza Health Ministry said at least 160 Palestinians, including about 135 civilians among them some 30 children, have been killed six days of warfare, and more than 1,000 have been wounded.
Victims have included many women and children. Israel claimed to have hit another 60 ‘terror targets’ yesterday, as it took its tally to well over 1,000 strikes. But guess what? There has been no Israeli casualty since the violence erupted.
   At the heart of the struggle is Gaza, a crowded strip of coastal land lying along Israel’s western flank and home to 1.5 million Palestinians. Many are crammed into refugee camps and live in great poverty; two-thirds do not have access even to a sewage system.
       Even if I screamed at Israel, it matters little because the whole world has been screaming but Israel remains unmoved.
A UN human rights official has called for an investigation into Israeli air strikes on Gaza, on the grounds that the targeting of Palestinian homes resulting in a high death toll among civilians, particularly children could violate international law. The warning from Navi Pillay, the UN high commissioner for human rights, came on the fourth day of Israel’s bombing of the Gaza Strip and a rocket barrage of Israel by Islamic militants.
       However, the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu , said his government would not be deflected by criticism from abroad, refusing to rule out a ground offensive and vowing there would be more air strikes.
So, as if the situation isn’t bad enough already, a ‘ground offensive’ could still take place. How worse could this get? Thousands are fleeing their homes already, with nowhere to go. If there is a ground invasion, it could spring a humanitarian crises.

      Are u referring to the Palestinians as extremists?!
      if so, then,I don’t know why d so much hate? who told you the Palestinians, innocent men, women and children are extremists!?! how can u even refer to any nationality as extremists?! more disappointing is your foolish idea of supporting Israel to wipe off the Palestinians. Even Israel is or ‘claims to be’ trying to reduce the civilian casualty and here you are saying the Palestinians should be wiped off! I’m shocked that such inhumane and unfeeling people like u still exist.

        I will definitely not trade words with u but you should know that every human life is precious! It is shocking to me that u can refer to hundreds of people being killed as ‘collateral damage’ and ‘common’. It is this kind of ‘common things’ we are trying to rid our world of for it to be a better place.

        Well so far u have afforded yourself t curtosy to indeed trade words with me in this regard. We r shocked by each others viewpoints on this matter and neither u or myself is willing t change our stance on this subject.. I stand by my point that Israel has a right like any other country to defend themselves from extremist Hamas attacks across their borders, period!!!!!!!!!

    I am sorry, but if the Palestinians really want Peace then they need to get Hamas out of Palestine. Why is it people don’t do their historical research? They claim Israel was never a country. Israel existed in that area for over 3,000 years before “Palestine”. They were their own country three times and overtaken three times. The Romans gave the area the name Phistine (Palestine) to mock the Jews the last time they took it over. The Jews had legal claim to that land for thousands of years. Paid for deeds. The Arabs in the area only came to that area to “claim” it after the Jewish State was established. Now they want it back. They want the extermination of the Jewish nation and the Jewish people and you expect them to stand down. If that was to happen here. Never. The Palestinian’s want a Palestine and they want peace then they had better get Hamas out of there. Or are you ignoring the pictures of Hamas herding women and children into areas they know are going to be bombed? Or the pictures of Hamas pointing machine guns at people and keeping them in areas that Israel warned was going to be shelled? Israel gives them plenty of notice just as they have been asked to do and Hamas uses it against them to herd the people into the area. More kill numbers for Israel against Palestine. Do I deny that things might not be so bad if Israel had been better neighbors and treated the Palestinians better before Hamas? No. Or the fact that Israeli’s commit their own atrocities? No. They have made many of these problems themselves. However, No country with the amount of enemies that Israel has can afford to step down without real assurances. None of which Hamas or other Arab nations will give them.

      The truth of it all is that Israel’s propaganda and manipulations resulted in this latest showdown. The way Israel lied and manipulated the story of the three teenagers showed clearly that they wanted an armed provocation.
      I appreciate your insights, however. You opened my eyes to things I should research about. Thanks, Pavanneh! I also checked your blog and I loved it. I’m Nigerian and on behalf of Nigeria, thanks for supporting the #Bringbackourgirls campaign

        Thank you for being open minded. There is plenty of blame to go around. I pray for your country. You Boko Haram encroaching on your country and I hope that someone with reason can be found that will stop this madness.

        Thanks for your concern about my country. Indeed Boko Haram is a real threat that I pray we overcome. They want to create an Islamic state in the country’s north like ISIS did in Iraq.

    Well her I go again. I completely and totally agree with the people siding with, Israel on here. It’s about time. I’m tired of hearing, Israel is such a bully. Look. These people voted in, Hamas and look what it’s getting them. More deaths because this terrorist organization does not care and look how they act like they care so much about these people dying, it’s all propaganda. Let’s show the world what. Israel is doing. It’s simple. Stop bombing, Israel and they will stop bombing you and all this whining about look how many more deaths the Pals have compared to, Israel. Well what does everyone expect? Israel is a superpower. It’s not Israel’s fault that Hamas is too stupid to see that yet they continue to bomb Israel. It’s like a Camry going up against a Lamborghini. Who do you think is faster in the quarter mile. Once again I’m sorry for the deaths of the Pals but Hamas is the reason.
