Same as ever - It seems like Israel took yet more Palestinian land for their settlers, Hamas fired some rockets into Israel as retaliation, Israel retaliated for the retaliation...people died.

So land theft, terrorism, state brutality...etc.

They also raided the Al-Aqsa mosque after Friday prayers during Ramadan just to make sure.

Aye. Part of their retaliation.  It’s like an endlessly perpetuating, vicious, circle of hate and death and lunacy.

Think it's all a very familiar and well orchestrated strategy by Netanyahu to help keep him in power and help keep him out of jail. Get the nationalist religious right wing zealots to incite a new intifada for him and keep the status quo for another couple of years.

Yup, that Netanyahu is in all sorts of legal trouble and is having trouble forming a government has nothing to do with this.

A big shout out to the Biden administration?/regime? who ran interference at the security council yesterday to ensure that a meagre %$***#$ statement condemning the violence could not be issued.

Things look to be escalating fiercely. I'm not sure how reliable that Twitter account is, but some of the stuff on there is horrendous. This tower collapse is being widely reported elsewhere, including by the BBC. There was a ninety minute warning issued for this incident.

Deathtoll at 51 - 6 today, with the Israelis leading in this downplayed by the media and counterintuitively scored contest.

The BBC headlines always make it sound Israel is on the receiving end of attacks and it isn’t stated that to be retaliation (and they don’t put it that way either) until the body of the text, when the former is still stated first.

Israel-Gaza: Rockets pound Israel after militants killed

Hamas militants have launched dozens of rockets at Israel after Israeli air strikes killed senior commanders and felled another tower block in Gaza.

The same applies to a report yesterday. I imagine this isn’t inadvertent.

The same with Swedish telly and papers. It's always "Israel responded to by..." But then they do also have some critical voices from time to time.

Not seen many calling it for what it is yet thou. Ethnic cleansing from an Apartheid state.

Mob 'lynching of Arab' aired live on Israeli TV

Footage of a far-right Israeli mob attacking a man near Tel Aviv they believed to be an Arab was aired live on television Wednesday night, as the Israel-Palestinian conflict raged on.

The shocking images show a man being forcibly removed from his car and beaten by a crowd of dozens until he lost consciousness.

The attack, broadcast by public broadcaster Kan, took place on the seafront promenade of Bat Yam, south of Israel's commercial capital Tel Aviv.

Police and emergency services did not arrive on the scene until 15 minutes later, while the victim lay motionless on his back in the middle of the street.

Those in the crowd justified the attack by saying the man was an Arab who had tried to ram the far-right nationalists, but the footage shows a motorist trying to avoid the demonstration.

"The victim of the lynching is seriously injured but stable," Tel Aviv's Ichilov hospital said in a statement, without revealing his identity.

Not much to argue with here. But I bet the word removed did.

I appreciate it when a politician can skewer the point like he does here. I'm sure he's a crackpot or got some dodgy views but here he's talking absolute sense.
