Jews in Tel Aviv Celebrate the Death of Children in Gaza
July 30, 2014 - TEL AVIV - "There is no school tomorrow; there are no children left in Gaza,” chanted the Jews opposite Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square on Saturday night, waving Israeli flags and shaking their fingers in the air.
As the the cries of “I hate all the Arabs” and “Gaza is a cemetery” intensified, some of the protestors tried to accost the participants in one of the country’s biggest anti-war demonstrations this year.
“Go protest in Gaza!” they shouted at the thousands spread all over Tel Aviv’s main protest square, in a demonstration that dwarfed the extremists’ riot.
The UN has now said at least 20 people were killed and 125 wounded in today's attack on a UN school where Palestinian families were taking refuge, Reuters reports.
"Nothing is more shameful than attacking sleeping children," said Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary-general as he pointed out that the precise location of this school had been communicated to the Israeli military authorities 17 times.
"I condemn in the strongest possible terms this serious violation of international law by Israeli forces," said UNRWA Commissioner General Pierre Krahenbuhl, saying the school's location had been communicated to the Israeli army 17 times.
Around 5 AM, shells slammed into the Abu Hussein school in Jabaliya refugee camp where over three thousand Palestinian refugees were sheltering after fleeing their homes as the fighting intensified in northern Gaza.
One hit the street in front of the entrance, according to several witnesses. Two others hit classrooms where people were sleeping, and a fourth struck a house behind the school.
Bewildered survivors said the school was hit by a barrage of eight shells that struck over a period of three to 15 minutes. There were tales of people desperately trying to escape the bombardment by going into other rooms, only to be injured by a following attack.
"This is the sixth time one of our UNRWA schools has been struck. Our staff leading the international response are being killed," he wrote, indicating some 3,300 people had been sheltering in the school in Jabaliya refugee camp at the moment it was struck.
"Children, women and men killed and injured as they slept in place where they should have been safe and protected. They were not. Intolerable."
The IDF was responsible for 16 civilian deaths last week at a different United Nations school serving as a shelter, in Beit Hanoun, admitting that the Israeli ordnance hit the school compound, a mortar, struck when the courtyard was full of Palestinians, waiting to be transferred to a location where they would have food and water.
Palestinian official has told AP 15 people have been killed and more than 150 wounded in strike on a busy Gaza market.
Further detail coming out about the market attack. AFP reports thick black smoke billowed over the site as at least five ambulances raced to the scene where bodies lay strewn on the ground.
A bloodied, limp body lay in a pool of petrol and mud, his head crushed.
A nearby building belted out smoke, still on fire, and the street was strewn with debris.
Medics worked frantically to recover the wounded and dead, loading at least five bodies onto stretchers then driving them off in ambulances.
Chile, El Salvador and Peru recalled their ambassadors to Israel over its military campaign in Gaza.
On Tuesday, El Salvador's foreign ministry recalled its envoy for urgent consultations, speaking of what it called "indiscriminate" Israeli bombing of Gaza.
The same day, Chile ordered its ambassador home in response to what it said was a "new outbreak of Israeli military operations" and condemned what it called the "collective punishment" of Palestinians in Gaza.
According to the BBC, Prime Minister David Cameron is sending £3 million in UK aid to Gaza to help the humanitarian situation.
The broadcaster reports the PM said what was happening in Gaza "completely tragic and ghastly" and called for an "unconditional, immediate, humanitarian ceasefire".
Archbishop of Canterbury: "For all sides to persist with their current strategy, be it threatening security by the indiscriminate firing of rockets at civilian areas or aerial bombing which increasingly fails to distinguish between combatants and non-combatants, is self-defeating.
The bombing of civilian areas, and their use to shelter rocket launches, are both breaches of age old customs for the conduct of war.
Further political impasse, acts of terror, economic blockades or sanctions and clashes over land and settlements, all increase the alienation of those affected. Populations condemned to hopelessness or living under fear will be violent. Such actions create more conflict, more deaths and will in the end lead to an even greater disaster than the one being faced today. "
In an another Israeli attack, at least 17 Palestinians were reported killed and as many as 200 were wounded when multiple shells hit an area in east Gaza City's Shejaiya neighborhood, which residents thought was temporarily safe but which the Israelis bombed. The dead included a Palestinian photojournalist and civil defense worker.
"Firefighters and ambulances arrived, then more shells -- five or six landed," said Mohammed Shamaly, 32, whose home was in the targeted neighborhood of car-repair garages and other workshops on Saladin Street. "I saw bodies torn apart," he said. "Body parts everywhere."
Two employees of the United Nation's main agency in Gaza were killed on Tuesday as Israel stepped up its attacks on the enclave. Chris Gunness, spokesman for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), "We have moved beyond the realm of humanitarian action alone. We are in the realm of accountability. I call on the international community to take deliberate international political action to put an immediate end to the continuing carnage." Six U.N. workers have been killed during the ongoing offensive. Israel's nearly three-week incursion into the Gaza Strip has been punctuated by strikes on U.N. facilities and civilian centers. The U.N. has said Israel may have committed war crimes by shelling hospitals and homes where it claims Hamas is hiding personnel and rockets.
Bombing was especially heavy at night. The Palestinian death toll stands at 1,156, with 71 people killed on Tuesday. Fifty-three Israeli soldiers and three civilians have been killed since the beginning of the operation.
Israel demands more death in Gaza, Benjamin Netanyahu told Israelis Monday to be ready for a "prolonged" war. After three weeks of bloodshed, both Israel and Hamas are holding out for bigger gains and a cease-fire remains elusive, despite an appeal by the U.N. Security Council and growing pressure from the United States, as bombs and missiles pounded into beleaguered Gaza today.
United States President Obama has nothing worthwhile to say about it because he was elected with the financial support of the Jewish community. Susan B . Rice spoke for Obama to National Jewish Leaders Assembly in Washington on Monday, "here's one thing you never have to worry about: America's support for the State of Israel. As President Obama declared before the Israeli people in Jerusalem: "so long as there is a United States of America - you are not alone.""
The White House on Wednesday condemned the shelling of a United Nations-run school sheltering more than 3,000 displaced Palestinians resulting in the death of 16 people and wounding of many others.
No sooner than the White House condemned the shelling of a United Nations-operated school in Gaza on Wednesday did news break that the Pentagon will supply the Israeli military with new ammunition to further their campaign on the war-ravaged city.
All over the world, Jews believe that truth is not always the deciding factor in so-called ethical Jewish speech. It is part of their religion. That is perfectly fine for them. Others call it lying. Many newscasters, program directors and station managers in the United States are Jews (i.e. CNN Wolf Blitzer (aka Zev Barak), Jake Tapper, etc.) that will never speak against their own nation (Israel). When they speak on television, it should not be taken seriously or as factual with regard to Israel. Although they would have you believe otherwise, most, if not all people in the U.S. DON'T support the murder of Palestinian children in the name of Israel's incessant war. Surprisingly, some do...
Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress (her real name is Rosh HaAyin) who plays Wonder Woman in the upcoming blockbuster Batman v Superman, has come out in support of the Israeli military.
Rosh took to Instagram to say: "I am sending my love and prayers to my fellow Israeli citizens. Especially to all the boys and girls who are risking their lives protecting my country..."
The sound of military drones, machine gun fire and the blast of missiles and rockets are all that can be heard in Gaza right now. Flares parachute down over the city as the sun sets on Gaza. In Tel Aviv, Jews celebrate the death of children in Gaza. If you are not Jewish, do you support that???
Have you been affected by the Israeli's attack on Gaza?
