As Ceasefire Talks Begin, Israel Bombs Hospital, Mosques and Homes

The Israeli assault on Gaza has entered its third week as the Palestinian death toll has topped 600, mostly civilians. More than 100 of the dead are children. More than 3,700 Palestinians have been injured. Israel says it’s lost 27 soldiers since they invaded Gaza.

So far today, Israel has struck more than 70 sites inside Gaza, including five mosques and a football stadium. On Monday, at least 103 Palestinians died, including 11 when Israel bombed a residential tower block in Gaza City. Five children died in that attack. In the central Gaza town of Deir al-Balah, five people died, 70 were wounded, when Israel shelled the al-Aqsa Hospital Monday. It became the third medical facility to be struck by Israel in the past two weeks. The injured included about 30 medics.

Yet, on American television, ad nauseam the media is slanting this (as always) in a manner sympathetic to the the rogue terror state of Israel? 

Be aware that it is US money (Over $3 BILLION a year in Foreign Aid) flowing into the hands of these Israeli terrorists.  Those are US developed weapons being bought and used.  It's OUR propaganda machine manufacturing consent and keeping it all running smoothly. 

To assist in a crime makes one a criminal by any legal standard. What about the Geneva Convention?*  The idea of a World Court is a joke.  The US and Israel are not held to their crimes.  Instead all we get is more hiding of Israel's war crimes by deliberate misrepresenting people with ad nauseam propaganda.  Sad that in this day and age, with all of our "Cosmopolitanism" that injustice of such proportions is so passively acquiesced.

* Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his army have no right to demand people to vacate their homes and having demanded the people to do so, "proves the willful war crime".

* Israel claims that use of white phosphorous is allowed, asserting that it cannot be deemed a chemical weapon.
