UPDATE: There are now more than 600 people who’ve been killed in Gaza, whilst Prime Minister Netanyahu continues to very unconvincingly insist that it’s Hamas’s fault for “using civilians as human shields”. Considering how 1,800,000 have been crammed into such a tiny strip of land, there isn’t anywhere for them to go in order for them not to be so-called “human shields”. And even if there were any truth to his ridiculous claim, if the “shield” is in fact a human, why the hell would you continue to pulverize it while claiming with a straight face that you want to “limit human casualties”?! If Netanyahu and his goons think this is somehow going to draw a wedge between Palestinians and Hamas, they are mistaken. It only legitimizes the need and desire for resistance.
***GRAPHIC IMAGERY AHEAD***
The videos you are about to see are incredibly sickening and disturbing to watch. They should NOT be viewed in the presence of small children. Any discomfort we feel from looking at these images pales in comparison to what the 1.8 million people who are living through this hell in Gaza at the very moment are going through. It is the American tax payers who have been footing the bills for this illegal occupation, along with the slaughtering of Palestine’s inhabitants that goes along with it. Every single member of the U.S. Senate and House voted to continue shelling out at least $3 billion annually to this regime’s weaponry, and the West has continually refused to hold Israel accountable for its outrageous war crimes. If the following images disturb you, then you should DEMAND your local and/or state representatives in the U.S. Congress cease supplying the weaponry for wholesale slaughter of innocent civilians immediately.
Do not accept for a moment the lie that these people are just “collateral damage” in Israel’s war against Hamas. The fact is that more than 469 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed by the Israeli military in the past 12 days. As of 8:15 P.M. Central time on Sunday, July 20, there had been at least 100 Palestinians killed by Israeli military forces in a single day alone. Even if we are to ignore for a moment the fact that Hamas would never have existed were it not for the need of an oppressed people to resist against a colonial occupier, the brutal attack of an entire population, trapped with nowhere else to go – carried out from the air, the sea and the land – cannot in any way be justified as an act of “self-defense.” If anything it will only harden the feelings of the occupied and oppressed Palestinians, whose every attempt to carry on and start a new life is destroyed by Israel because they dare exist on the land that Israel wants for its state.
The grieving man in the first video is the father of 4 year-old Sahar Salman Abu Amous whose life was so needlessly and viciously cut short.

Do these look like “terrorists” to you?
