Trump just obliterated any pretense of neutrality by pissing gasoline onto a situation that has the makings of a humanitarian crisis. 

Evangelicals and rightwing nutjobs merged on a common goal. What could go wrong?

Maybe the Palestinians shouldn't violently protest and wtf would they take their kids anywhere near such activity?

The irony is that Evangelicals view Jews (and Muslims) as basically infidels.

Israel, controls the Gaza border (along with Egypt), it controls the airspace above it and the coast and sea on Gaza's west. They control, and restrict what goes in. For the 1.8 miiillion people living in 141 square miles there, at 25 miles long and 3.7 to 7.5 wide, Gaza is an over populated and over crowded prison at best, and a concentration camp at worst.

It’s embarrassing that the US isn’t even trying to pretend to be unbiased on the Israel-Palestine issue...

Well Trump did invite a Jew-hating pastor to come with him, so there's that...

There's no longer any point. The embassy move says it with flowers.

From the article linked in the OP

Quote

For seven weeks, protesters have gathered on the Gaza side of the border with Israel, with scores of deaths over that period before the violence ratcheted this week.

Quote

Many of the dead and wounded in Gaza were hit by sniper-fire, the health ministry said.

Israeli troops opened fire as protesters pushed towards the border fence that separates the Gaza Strip from Israel. Israel said its soldiers fired only at "targets of terrorist activity".

UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told reporters in Geneva on Tuesday that Israel's use of force was "not acceptable".

"The mere fact of approaching a fence is not a lethal, life-threatening act, so that does not warrant being shot," he said.

"It seems that anyone is liable to be shot dead," he added, stressing that international law makes it clear that "lethal force may only be used as a measure of last, not first, resort."

Also, I'm sure all the babysitters in the Gaza Strip have been booked solid for the last few months. :lol:

Slinghots, burning tires, molatov cocktails even kites to carry fire across the border wall....

Doesn't sound like peaceful, unarmed protestors....

I never said they were but it also doesn't seem like the Israelis care whether they're unarmed or not.

I was responding to Steve and his "leave the kids at home" comment which was incredibly ignorant.

Looks more like a Prison Riot but only because Gaza is close to becoming an Open Air prison...
