Open Post: Israel / Gaza Massacre A Hot Hamas

  Sorry about the shitty pun in the title. Iran out of ideas.

Iran out of ideas. Every time Americans think they have their minds wrapped around the whole Israel / Gaza / Hamas / dead people / stuff / things situation happening on the other side of the world that we’re supposed to care about, we get another detail that throws off our perception. Due to the Israeli attack on Palestinians in Gaza on May 14th that ruffled everyone’s burkas, we’re going to dive in and hash out the mess in the comments. As of now I’ve read enough twelve-word listicles about the ongoing riff between Israel and the Palestinian-occupied Gaza Strip to maybe kind of condense the information into the ultimate dark web slacker botched paragraph for those who want to appear like they give a crappity crap but secretly don’t know what the fuck’s going on. Then we’ll get into the May 14th attack that left 60 people dead. Okay here we go. Israelis and Palestinians both feel that the same hunk of junk land is rightfully religiously theirs. In 1948 the U.N. divided the two groups into separate states. But the rabble-rouser Palestinians continued to try and take over Israel’s land, even though they were supposed to be at peace. Big mistake. the Israeli army fought back in a major way and actually claimed even more land than was afforded by the 1948 deal. This left a ton of Pals (cute) sequestered to the Gaza Strip, while others went to the West Bank, which, is doing better than Gaza. Israeli troops still occupied Gaza afterwards, but after some touch and go moments, they completely peaced out in 2005. Enjoy being massively overcrowded in a tiny plot of land, assholes. Current-day Gaza is hell, with around two million people, the third densest population in the world, and almost 40% unemployment. Still, Israel keeps an elaborate border forbidding Pals from entering. And Egypt, the other country bordering Gaza, isn’t much more lenient. Why? Because terrorist group Hamas won an election in 2006 to control Gaza, and seems like the Pinky and the Brain of countries – always scheming for ways to take over the land Israel occupies and turn it into an all-Pals state. Iran supplies Pals with deadly missiles and weapons, and Israel doesn’t take any chances with their bullshit. Come literally within 300 meters of the Gaza border and you’re Gaza be shot in the face. I’m sure that was the shittiest and most inaccurate Gaza recap on the web, and you’re welcome. Anyway this all brings us to May 14th. America’s siding with Israel was put to the test when they massacred 60 of the thousands of Gaza protesters who stormed the border during a protest – claiming that they were going to return to the land that was rightfully theirs. The threat posed by the protesters as well as Hamas’ involvement and possible weapons present are all factors we should care about. Also some people say Trump’s recent moving of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to the sensitive Jerusalem could have something to do with it, and, blah blah blah, I went to state school in the South, that’s about all I got. Everyone and their mom has opinions on the deadly May 14th attack, and the media is going nuts. Are the Pals right? Are the Israelis right? Do you care? Head to the comments and let us know.   Israel must answer for this week’s deaths and the misery in Gaza. But if conflict is ever to end, Palestinians need to take up genuine non-violence.

Natalie Portman Breaks Silence After Declining to Accept Award in Israel

Natalie Portman is speaking out following her decision to not travel to Israel to accept the Genesis Prize.

Following the 36-year-old actress’ decision, the award ceremony was cancelled and a representative for Natalie was quoted saying that “recent events in Israel have been extremely distressing to her” and that “she cannot in good conscience move forward with the ceremony.” Now Natalie is speaking out to say that her decision has “mischaracterized by others.” “I chose not to attend because I did not want to appear as endorsing Benjamin Netanyahu, who was to be giving a speech at the ceremony. By the same token, I am not part of the BDS movement and do not endorse it,” Natalie said, referring to the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions group that protests Israel over its treatment of Palestinians and the West Bank. Natalie added that she now plans to donate to multiple Israeli charities that she will announce soon. Click inside to read Natalie’s entire statement… “My decision not to attend the Genesis Prize ceremony has been mischaracterized by others. Let me speak for myself. I chose not to attend because I did not want to appear as endorsing Benjamin Netanyahu, who was to be giving a speech at the ceremony. By the same token, I am not part of the BDS movement and do not endorse it. Like many Israelis and Jews around the world, I can be critical of the leadership in Israel without wanting to boycott the entire nation. I treasure my Israeli friends and family, Israeli food, books, art, cinema, and dance. Israel was created exactly 70 years ago as a haven for refugees from the Holocaust. But the mistreatment of those suffering from today’s atrocities is simply not in line with my Jewish values. Because I care about Israel, I must stand up against violence, corruption, inequality, and abuse of power. Please do not take any words that do not come directly from me as my own. This experience has inspired me to support a number of charities in Israel. I will be announcing them soon, and I hope others will join me in supporting the great work they are doing.”.....»»

The news was confirmed by Yedioth Ahronoth, the largest newspaper in Israel, on Sunday (December 24). PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Lorde The 31-year-old “Green Light” singer was asked to “join the artistic boycott of Israel” by pulling out of her upcoming performance in Tel Aviv on June 5, 2018. “Noted! Been speaking w many people about this and considering all options. Thank u for educating me i am learning all the time too,” she wrote on Twitter after receiving an impassioned letter asking her to reconsider. “Playing in Tel Aviv will be seen as giving support to the policies of the Israeli government, even if you make no comment on the political situation,” the letter reads. “Today, millions of people stand opposed to the Israeli government’s policies of oppression, ethnic cleansing, human rights violations, occupation and apartheid. As part of this struggle, we believe that an economic, intellectual and artistic boycott is an effective way of speaking out against these crimes. This worked very effectively against apartheid in South Africa, and we hope it can work again.” Other artists who have recently protested by boycott include Brian Eno and Pink Floyd‘s Roger Waters, according to Haaretz.

Bella Hadid SLAMS Donald Trump"s "Unjust" Recognition Of Jerusalem As The Capitol Of Israel: "I Stand With Palestine"

The supermodel, who is of Palestinian descent, spoke out against Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem this week, which has already erupted violent clashes between the two Middle Eastern countries long embattled in territorial conflict. Hadid shared an emotional post on Instagram Thursday, detailing the "pain" she felt for her fellow Palestinians following POTUS's "unjust" move. Photo: Bella & Alicia Vikander Dazzle At Bulgari Dubai Resort Opening! In her caption, Gigi Hadid's sister included sentiments written by her close friends, DJs Simi and Haze Khadra, who are also Palestinian Americans speaking out in support of their native country. Calling Trump's decision a "huge setback to any hope for peace," the identical twins shared: "It is absurd that Palestine, a country where Muslims Christians and Jews lived side by side for centuries, has been fighting to be recognized since the inception of Israel in 1948, and to add insult to injury yesterday Trump ‘decided' to recognize Palestine's capital of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel – as if it's his to give away. This is a violation of international law and a huge setback to any hope for peace." You thought 2017 was bad? Hold on to your butts, world. See Bella's full post (below). 💔I've been waiting to put this into perfect words but I realized there is no perfect way to speak of something so unjust. A very very sad day.Watching the news and seeing the pain of the Palestinian people makes me cry for the many many generations of Palestine. Seeing the sadness of my father, cousins, and Palestinian family that are feeling for our Palestinian ancestors makes this even harder to write. Jerusalem is home of all religions. For this to happen, I feel, makes us take 5 steps back making it harder to live in a world of peace. The TREATMENT of the Palestinian people is unfair, one-sided and should not be tolerated. I stand with Palestine. Well said my Palestinian sisters @simihaze: It is absurd that Palestine, a country where Muslims Christians and Jews lived side by side for centuries, has been fighting to be recognized since the inception of Israel in 1948, and to add insult to injury yesterday Trump 'decided' to recognize Palestines capital of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel - as if it's his to give away. This is a violation of international law and a huge setback to any hope for peace. In his speech yesterday, he never once mentioned Palestine but referred to Israel and "the Palestinian people" as if Palestine never existed. Jerusalem is and always has been the capital of occupied Palestine. Declaring Jerusalem as Israels capital is a calculated move to make Palestinians lose hope of ever gaining statehood in their own country. There is no hate against anyone... My best friends I call sisters and brothers are Jewish. There are no sides... All religions living side by side.. Now it is Just one man..it has always been a factor of trying to bring peace... Where is the hope..?A post shared by 🦋 (@bellahadid) on Dec 7, 2017 at 7:55am PST [Image via Derrick Salters/WENN/White House/YouTube.].....»»
