You cannot grab an ordinary Arab citizen and try to lynch him – just as we cannot watch Arab citizens do this to Jewish citizens. This will not happen. This is something that I am certain is shared by most citizens of Israel.
Seems like Blinken has taken charge of the admin's efforts to de-escalate the situation. Blinken spoke with Netanyahu today.
In a readout, the PMO's says that Netanyahu thanked SecState "for the American support of Israel's right to self-defense."
(1) You'll see a lot of these hoary claims of "human shields" in Gaza to justify Israel's deliberate and indiscriminate bombardment of civilians. They used the same line in the 2006 Lebanon war and multiple wars in Gaza. Don't fall for it.
"Mass standardized testing is the engine of corporate education reform and its supporters feared a second year without scores could permanently weaken the testing machine." Important piece from Stan Karp about current high-stakes testing w/an amazing illustration from @elivalley
Funny how this troll named themselves after a vicious demonizer of Diaspora Jews who coined the vernacular of "Degenerate Art" that Hitler himself borrowed for Mein Kampf.
The sun has risen on the last day of the holy month of Ramadan in Palestine, when it sets it will be Eid and Israel's war crimes are continuing and escalating. This is what Palestinians in Gaza are experiencing and our tax dollars pay for it.
The life of my family and mine is in danger tonight, my girls are scared shitless in the shelter and crying as the sirens wail, I am so enraged at everything and everyone, and yet I know that no one will ever know peace here without an end to Israeli apartheid.
This needs to be said: every single Palestinian and Israeli death as a result of this escalation is the responsibility of Hamas and Hamas alone.
If there were no Hamas rockets, there would be no Israeli airstrikes. Dozens of lives would be spared.
Yes, it really is that simple.
It was also agreed that Border Police companies from Judea and Samaria would arrive in the mixed cities tonight.
PM Netanyahu directed that lawbreakers be dealt with severely and that units on the ground be reinforced in order to restore quiet and order to the city forthwith.
You are not on the ground, I am. You don’t have family in shelters, I do. You are only processing facts that fit within your pre-conceived narrative. If you cared to learn the truth, you would understand how far Israel goes to mitigate the risks of violent escalation.
