New respect for the Brits. Thank you. Now if we could only reign in AIPAC and its lip diddling politicians.

Heard Pelosi yesterday degrade Hamas and promote a two state solution. I’m not sure how that is supposed to work with one stealing land from the other on a continuing basis.

Any Democrat that supported a similar march here in the United States would be crucified in the masse media outlets (controlled?). Any Democrat who supported a similar march would be standing up for justice and morality. Any Democrat who supported a similar march would show leadership and strength. Will it happen? No, it is political suicide and getting elected is always the first priority.

While people the world over push for the Palestinians to be freed from their oppression, we find ourselves ever more subjected to the same authoritarian hate.

I guess we will have to bomb the UK along with Iran when the time comes. And whoever else stands up for the Palestinians.

If the Gazans don’t want to be bombed, why don’t they stop calling for the elimination of the Jewish Israelis from the region? They can hardy expect Israelis to sit around and allow themselves to be slaughtered or expelled - or returned to Yemen, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, where all the Jews were driven out and is the origin of about 1/2 of the Israeli population

Who’s actually doing the decades-long brutal subjugation, caging, stealing, and murdering? ? Who has a worldview so narcissistic that they can do all this, and then complain about the rhetoric and feeble resistance of their victims?
