I don’t have Adam’s knowledge or expertise as to what is going on in Israel/Palestine, but I do understand naked aggression and bloodlust when I see it. And I also know that this sort of things just magically appears to happen every time Netanyahu feels weak, as he would literally burn the entire Middle East to the ground and then brag about it in front of Republicans in the House in order to stay in power. I’d like to think at some point the international community will finally have enough, but I am not hopeful. Regardless, this can not go on:
The worst violence between Israelis and Palestinians in seven years intensified on Saturday, as an Israeli airstrike destroyed a prominent high-rise building in Gaza City that housed media outlets including The Associated Press and Al Jazeera.
The Israel Defense Forces said its fighter jets struck the media tower because it also contained military assets belonging to Hamas. The I.D.F. said it had provided advance warning to civilians in the building to allow evacuation.
The attack followed an Israeli airstrike overnight that killed at least 10 members of an extended family in a refugee camp in Gaza, after which Hamas militants aimed another round of rockets at Tel Aviv.
These atrocities have to stop.
