On Monday, in an attempt to depict America’s decision to open its embassy in Jerusalem as a provocative act of incitement, Hamas-backed terrorists attacked the Gaza border en masse, seeking to harm Israeli soldiers and invade Israeli territory. Israeli soldiers were forced to respond, and some 50-plus Palestinians have now been killed. The media dutifully reported the Hamas line, suggesting that Israel was to blame for the violence against “protesters.”

Take, for example, this Washington Post headline: “Israelis kill dozens of Palestinians in Gaza protesting US Embassy move to Jerusalem.” This makes it sound as though a bunch of peaceful protesters gathered in Gaza for a sit-in. Not so much. The same article quotes one of the “protesters,” 23-year-old Mohammed Mansoura: “We are excited to storm and get inside. … Whatever is possible, to kill, throw stones.” The New York Times similarly headlined, “Israeli Troops Kill Dozens of Palestinian Protesters.” The Wall Street Journal headlined, “Scores Killed, Thousands Injured as Palestinians Protest US Embassy Opening In Jerusalem.” That same article acknowledged, however, that “Yahya Sinwar, the leader of Hamas in Gaza, which controls the territory, suggested last week that more than 100,000 people could storm the fence on Tuesday. Israeli military officials say it has information that Hamas is using the protests as a pretext to stage an attack into Israel. Earlier in the morning Israel’s military dropped leaflets over Gaza warning residents not to approach the border.”


Organizers of the “protests” are telling demonstrators that they should attempt to burst through the border fence, and lying that Israeli soldiers were “fleeing their positions.” According to the Jerusalem Post, “Some 35,000 Palestinians were reported by the IDF as taking part in violent protests at 12 different locations along the fence, throwing stones, explosive devices, and Molotov cocktails at the fence and IDF troops, burning tires, and other burning objects with the intention of setting fires in Israeli territory. The Jerusalem Post witnessed at least six incendiary kites, with two setting fires in fields near Kibbutz Nahal Oz.” At one outpost, Palestinians laid an explosive device. The IDF spokesman, Ronen Manelis, says that Hamas is paying families to protest, and that Hamas was planning to use the protests as cover to abduct soldiers.

The next Democratic president will just reverse this move. Everything that Don the Con is doing will prove to be only temporary.

Yup; all Trump did was he chose not to sign a waiver he had the option of signing. I prefer that he would've signed that waiver, and that he would've signed it again every year that he's in office, at least until all the parties involved settled and were ready for the change; same with all other future US presidents involved.

What we'll have to do is get congress to pass a new act that takes this embassy out of there & get it back to where it was before.
Thanks from Sabcat

A murder was committed on Hearst's yacht but the crime went unsolved. Actress Marion Davies was Hearst's girlfriend. Rosebud means a very private part of Marion Davies nicknamed by Hearst. Hearst's dad made a fortune in silver and that started the newspaper mess. Some say William Randolph Hearst started the Spanish-American War to sell more newspapers. Remember The Maine!

Blame it on Hamas. They and all the Gazans know that it is a declared Israeli military zone that will be defended. It has been that way since the fence/wall was built.

........

However, despite the fierceness of the clashes, the spokesperson, Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis, said the Hamas terror group, which rules the Gaza Strip, appeared to have failed to bring out protesters in sufficient numbers to be considered a political victory.

Manelis said Hamas deployed 12 separate terror “cells” to try to breach the border at different spots, and that they were ordered to confront and try to kidnap Israeli soldiers. All those efforts failed, he said on Hadashot TV.

The TV report said that at least 10 of those killed had been identified by the IDF as Hamas members
........

Manelis said Hamas attempted to convince and pressure Palestinians to come to the border protests, tried to bribe them by offering “$100 per family that comes,” and threatened people by accusing them of being “collaborators” if they did not attend the protests.

Despite those efforts, Manelis said, “Hamas failed.”

.......

He cited three attempted attacks by armed men against Israeli forces during the riots — two teams of gunmen who opened fire at IDF soldiers and one group that tried to plant an improvised explosive device along the border — as the main proof of the riots’ ferocity, during a phone briefing with journalists.

Send the Mexican Navy over there who take no slaves or prisoners. The Mexican Navy was in Vietnam in River Boats contrary to what Mexico says.
