Israel’s Minister for the Advancement of Women, May Golan, has yet again displayed disregard for Palestinian life by expressing pride in the “ruins” of the besieged Gaza Strip, adding that every Palestinian baby will in future, “tell their grandchildren what the Jews did.”
“I am personally proud of the ruins of Gaza,” Golan said in a speech in the Israeli parliament (Knesset) on Wednesday.
“And that every baby, even 80 years from now, will tell their grandchildren what the Jews did…,” she added.
Dr. James Smith saw the same scene several times a day: residents of the Gaza Strip carrying casualties from Israeli bombings, wrapped in blankets, and laying them on the hospital floor. "Until we unwrapped the blankets, we didn't know if the person inside was wounded or killed," he said in an interview 10 days after he returned to London. He worked in Gaza as a volunteer in late December and early January.
Engineering forces of the Alexandroni Brigade cleared close to 30 kilometers of routes near Israel's northern border with Lebanon, the military said on Wednesday, granting it significant freedom of action on the northern front.
The Alexandroni Brigade, deployed from Metulla to Rosh Hanikra, is leading the defense battle against Hezbollah, the IDF noted.
A recurring defect in US foreign policy is a refusal by elites to concede when they made a serious policy mistake. This is not a new problem, but it has grown decidedly worse in the past few decades. It characterized the intervention in Vietnam years after it should have become evident that Washington’s approach was failing.
The Israeli Knesset has overwhelmingly backed a resolution put forward by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that rejects a “unilateral” creation of a Palestinian state.
Ninety-nine lawmakers out of 120 in the Knesset voted in favor of the resolution. According to Ynet, Israel’s Labor Party boycotted the vote, and 11 Arab lawmakers voted against it. The majority of the leading opposition parties, National Unity and Yesh Atid, voted in favor.
