'You Are Not Welcome in Palestine': US Delegation Egged in Occupied West Bank

Jon Queally, staff writer

A delegation of U.S. officials on their way to an event in the occupied West Bank on Monday were most certainly not welcome as their convoy was met with a volley of eggs and Palestinians holding signs while entering the town of Beit Jala, outside Bethlehem.

According to a photographer at the scene, the angered residents held up signs that read: "US government you are not welcome in Palestine" and "Hey Trump, Jerusalem is not the capital of Zion."

Et tu, CommonDreams? “More than 60”? What is the cumulative total of murders by IDF during the current struggle by the Palestinians imprisoned in Gaza?

Peace.
ths.


#3

Self-defense is not murder.

“That which is hateful to yourself, do not do to others. That is the whole of Torah, all the rest is commentary.”
–Hillel


#5

Does that mean that you should not defend yourself?


#6

Please tell us the names of the murdering cowards in IDF uniforms who felt so threatened by an eight-month-old child that they had to “defend themselves” by shattering her skull with a tear gas cannister fired from far away on the other side of a fence?


#7

Why was an eight-month-old child at an invasion?


#8

Invasion? Please elaborate.

hundreds of Palestinians, urged on by a Hamas leader in a fiery midafternoon speech, rushed the security barrier at the eastern edge of Gaza City and tried to cross into Israel.
Dozens made it through a barbed-wire barrier about 30 yards inside Gaza territory, deploying wire cutters, hooks and winches. Israeli troops opened fire with a mix of live ammunition and rubber bullets, killing three people and wounding nearly 1,000 more, according to Gaza health officials.

Oh yes the Palestinians are sure going to take over Israel with their slingshots! Give me a break, not one Israeli got killed or injured during the gunning down of these protesters. The Palestinians are imprisoned in their own land by the invading force that is Israel.

If you do the calculations on the ballistics, on the stopping power of the rock fired from David’s sling, it’s roughly equal to the stopping power of a [.45 caliber] handgun.

Not one Israeli got killed or injured because they shot the Palestinians before the Palestinians could kill them.

Gazans were coming into Israel & murdering innocent Israelis. That’s why Israel built the fence.

The Gazans were trying to invade Israel, not the other way around.

“Men hate those to whom they have to lie.”
–Victor Hugo

How you hasbara trolls must hate us all…


#13

And US taxpayers paid for the move of the embassy.
How fiscally responsible of those conservatives…


#14

Isrealis aren’t very smart if they think that was an invasion.
So, which are you? Stupid or evil?


#15

What are you claiming was a lie?


#16

The embassy should never have been in Tel Aviv in the first place. Israel is the only country in the world where our embassy is not in the capital.


#17

How was this not an attempted invasion?


#18

The next time you get a censure from the U.N. or Any number of Human Rights Organizations for this countries willful violation of basic human rights see if you can find a religious text that says it is ok to ignore it.

The UN is prejudiced against Israel.

For example, the UN criticized only one country for its treatment of women. It was not Saudi Arabia where women were not allowed to drive. It was not Egypt or Iraq or Yemen where girls suffer from female genital mutilation. It was not Palestine or Jordan or Iran where women are subjected to honor killings. It was Israel – a country that has had a female prime minister & female fighter pilots.
The 10 worst countries for human rights are: Syria, Sudan, DR Congo, Pakistan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Myanmar, Yemen & Nigeria. So why are there more UN Resolutions against Israel than against the 10 worst countries combined?

There is no boycott of China even though China invaded Tibet & transferred millions of Chinese settlers into Tibet.
There is no boycott of Turkey even though Turkey occupies part of Cyprus and Turkish settlers have moved into occupied Cyprus.
There is no boycott of Morocco which occupies part of Western Sahara.
Unlike China, Turkey and Morocco, the Israel’s occupation began because Israel was attacked. Also, unlike China, Turkey and Morocco, Israel offered to end the occupation if Palestinians would sign a peace treaty.

So, you chose to be stupid.
