This morning, our army again slaughtered dozens of women and children in another alleged (& likely failed) attempt to take down a senior Hamas official
#StopGazaGenocide Oh and if the attempt was successful - the Hamas leader most likely had Israeli hostages with him - who were also considered collateral damage by our army, government & most of the Zionist society

Our army is holding Palestinian hostages & captives from Gaza with their hands & legs tied & face covered for weeks on end. A doctor who served in that concentration camp testified: leg amputations as a result of wounds caused by those conditions are routine
Meanwhile is the Knesset,
a bill to lock up Palestinian children under the age of 14 is advancing

"No school today" - a "journalist" *celebrating* the demolition of a university building, as our army continues erasing the Palestinian social fabric in Gaza as part of the ethnic cleansing of the Strip In case it wasn't clear, this pro-genocidal attitude is rather common in the Israeli media, although it became a little more subtle since the @CIJ_ICJ process started

The best news I read in a while: South Africa's genocide case against our actions in Gaza is really worrying our government & army leaders - with the huge number of civilian deaths in Gaza & the clearly genocidal statements by so many israelis as the main sources of concern Here are some examples of the genocidal rhetoric & mentality since 7.10 from my feed:

And today, @netanyahu publicly acknowledges that his government is working to advance the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in Gaza. He says the problem is to find where to send them. "We are working on it. It's the direction we are heading"

Insane: the 3 hostages were shirtless & waving a white flag when they were shot. One of them managed to escape while shouting for help in Hebrew but our soldiers still chased & executed him
Image And even with all the presumed transparency about this killing, the army keeps lying, this time trying to pin the blame on the soldiers on the ground & claiming the shooting was done against procedures - instead of admiting it's the orders they have

The systematic destruction of Palestinian cultural symbols and institutions is a clear sign of the genocidal intentions of our army's attack in Gaza

A pro-Netanyahu Israeli newspaper confirms: @netanyahu's people are working on a plan for ethnic cleansing in Gaza.
They call it "population dillution" & believe they can do it w/o the world stopping them
Image They didn't give much details but the 2 options discussed in the text is to send the Palestinians to Egypt or by the sea to Europe Image

Today in the bizzare and sick statements by our government: the Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi wants the army to collect all the *foreskins* of Hamas members in Gaza😵

As our army is slowly moving into Gaza, any attempt to guess what'll happen next (other than a lot more bloodshed) gets even harder. Many commentators still don't believe in the prospect of ethnic cleansing of Gaza, or large swaths of it. I'm less certain.
The dehumanizing rhetoric by officials & the media, the public sentiment, the complete disregard for Palestinians lives in the attacks so far, and the international backing for every Israeli action, all support the possibility of a genuine 2nd Nakba in Gaza.

It's about time to find a name to this round of violence. I suppose that the "Eid al-Fitr clashes" is appropriate.
It might soon become the Eid al-Fitr war, because there is only one man who can stop the violence before Hamas uses all his arsenal of long range rockets >>> Towards Tel Aviv, & @netanyahu won't stop the attack on Gaza before the fire towards Tel Aviv stops. Netanyahu also knows nothing good will come out of a ground invasion into Gaza. He just needs @JoeBiden to twist his arm publicly enough so he'll have an excuse to stop >>>

Another barrage towards Tel Aviv. Many explosions. Some louder than others I have family history of hearing problems & some damage to the ears (apparently from the bus exposion). But turns out the damage is not in the war-related frequencies. Turns out I can now recognize the sound of the Iron Dome interceptor missiles launching

Not long after an arson attempt against a synagogue around the corner from my house, a group of young Israeli teenagers who are clearly not from here walked past the street. They weren't paying much attention to me Took the dogs for a walk. Some burned trash cans & such & a bit of vandalism against the light-rail construction site. Grocery store owner says it was local Palestinians. Lots of police & fire trucks driving against traffic & police roadblocks checking cars

Sounds like action is getting nearer. Shouts and at least one stun grenade a few blocks away at most. Sorry but I'm not in the mood to go see what's exactly going on Reports of Israeli protesters who entered Jaffa from Bat Yam. Maybe that's the reason for the noise

Last night, 2 Israeli restaurants & a hotel in the mixed city of Acre were burned. Owner of 1 of the restaurants: Palestinian neighbors helped him & his workers escape when the "knife carrying & molotov cocktail throwing" protesters arrived. The @IL_police was nowhere to be seen And @JananBsoul1 gives an explanation to why what Israelis thought were "symbols of co-existence" in mixed cities became targets of Palestinian rage: they also symbolize & fascilitate the ethnic gentrification & expulsion of Palestinians from those mixed cities
