AFTER WARNING OF 'LARGE AND PAINFUL MILITARY OPERATION,' ISRAEL BEGINS MASSIVE BOMBING OF GAZA

The airstrikes began to slam Gaza just hours after Israeli soldiers gunned down at least three Palestinians during anti-occupation demonstrations. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) says one of its soldiers was killed by retaliatory gunfire from the Palestinians.

"Israel, one of the most powerful military powers in the world, is about to launch a military campaign with F-16s, Tanks, Naval ships and drones against a besieged, stateless population in Gaza."
—Yousef Munayyer, U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights

"Palestinian defense forces fired back at Israeli snipers who have been murdering Palestinian men, women, and children for weeks," noted journalist Ali Abunimah.

Yousef Munayyer, executive director of the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, added: "Israeli snipers shoot and kill scores of unarmed Palestinian protesters in Gaza, including kids, then calls it self-defense. When a Palestinian sniper fires at one Israeli soldier, Israel bombs Gaza with F-16s and preps for all out war."

In response to Israel's "massive" wave of airstrikes, activists began circulating the #StoptheWar hashtag in an effort to pressure the international community to step in and stop Israel's efforts to launch yet another catastrophic assault on the "occupied, blockaded, unlivable, and exhausted Gaza Strip."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As I predicted yesterday, Tel Aviv, understanding how Americans were being heavily bombarded with Anti-Trump, Anti-Russian propaganda this week, as a result of the Helskinki Summit, believed that this would be the best one of the best possible "windows" for their genocide of Gaza.

Prayers for our innocent brothers and sisters in Gaza, who will most likely get assassinated in this round of Israel's version of "the killing fields", and prayers also for those Israelis who understand that this new wave of assinations is a very bad idea.

UPDATE; BREAKING ON FOX: HAMAS HAS ACCEPTED A NEW CEASE FIRE WITH ISRAEL: unfortunately, if Israel does not want this to hold, it will not hold.

I have to wonder if Netanyahu even bothered to inform President Trump that this would be happening.

I still cannot wrap my head around the reality that some dangerously powerful people in the US military industrial complex, decided to characterize President Trump as a "traitor" for having done this summit, when he was very dramatically attempting to de-escalate tensions with Russia. He knew this would be risky, yet he was willing to take the risk: I congratulate him on this.

But being old enough to remember this, I recall that the same kinds of posters went up in Dallas, on the same day, and right before President Kennedy was assassinated:

The Price of Encouraging Political Violence

And to all those who may be thinking that extreme, mob violence is the answer to the "problem" of the existence of Trump as our President, I would ask you to please... think again.
