While Israel continues showing its inhumanity with its terrorist attacks on the people of Gaza, Palestinians continue showing humanity and teaching life.
Israeli forces committed a massacre at Shejaiya Refugee Camp early Sunday morning with the total number of people killed now at 72, including 24 children.
The overall Palestinian death toll since Israel began its latest assault on Gaza 13 days ago stood at 501 this morning.

Islamists from ISIS burnt out the insidse and remove the cross from the Armenian Catholic Church of the Martyrs in Raqqa, replacing the crosses with ISIS flags.
In the last month, ISIS have destroyed most of the Ancient Churches in their territory, focing the Christians of their ancient homelands to leave the area with the choice of “Convert, Leave or Die,”
As of 16:55 GMT today (20/7/14) the last Christian family has left Mosul, after over 100 families who refused to leave were forcibly removed from their homes, many dying in the process.
Over 1400 years ago the Christians in this area feared their deaths with the rise of the “Heresy of the Ishmaelites” and demands of the Dhimmi system, now this has returned in an ever more violent fashion.

Hey sorry I don't know much about the free Syrian army. What's wrong with them?

Answer:

lebnaniye:

Oh, dear. This answer would be a really long post and I don’t have the time right now to write it out. Check my “fuck the FSA” tag as well as my “fuck America” tag for an indication.

The FSA is funded by the West as well as some khaleej nations colluding with the West. The majority of the fighters are not even Syrian. They are wahabi assholes and are more interested in engaging with religious persecution (of Christians, of Shias, of Druze, etc.) and the destruction of Syria’s culture and heritage. Why should a band of foreign assholes have any say in what happens in Syria? Why should Syrian blood flow by their hands?

I promise to address this more thoroughly in an upcoming post because the above isn’t enough but, basically, fuck the FSA.

PS: Any group supported by America and Israel should basically be hated and opposed by anyone with a brain.

Listen to the response of Palestinian youth in Gaza when a reporter for Vice News says he’s scared after hearing an Israeli airstrike

The death toll in the besieged coastal enclave surpassed 200 last night as Israel continues targeting civilians.

I think it truly says something when this reporter is absolutely scared shitless, and these teenagers, young men, are reassuring him that this is normal and that he will be fine. There is another VICE News episode showing “life under the Iron Dome” in southern Israel, and if you just compare the two it is blatantly clear whose lives are truly being endangered.

Gaza doesn’t have a billion dollar rocket interception system funded by their BFF the U.S. We don’t have warning sirens or bomb shelters in our homes. Gazans have no where to hide because they live under and illegal siege (land, air, and sea). They can’t run and they can’t hide. all they can do is wait for the next Israeli “knock on the roof” and anticipate what part of gaza will be hit next. This is not a war, this is disproportionate collective punishment. This is the face of Israel’s self defense.

For anyone interested in watching the VICE News episode about the Iron Dome here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqBOl2SOxq4&list=UUZaT_X_mc0BI-djXOlfhqWQ

Remember Ismael Mohamed Bakr, 9, Ahed Atef Bakr, 10, Zakaria Ahed Bakr, 10 and Mohamed Ramez Bakr, 11 - all from the same family - whose crime was nothing more than be Palestinian. 
It does not matter how young you are, if you are Palestinian, Israel will kill you. A day which started out playing football on the beach ended with these children in body bags.
Will any Israeli be held responsible for their murder? Of course not. You’ll hear how Israel was only ‘defending’ itself and some nonsense about how Hamas was ‘hiding’ in the football they were playing with.
Israel will make something up (or pretend they’ll ‘investigate’ the incident - no outsiders allowed in that process, though!) and world leaders like Obama will regurgitate it. 
While we’re on the topic of Obama, remember how he made a statement about the three Israeli settlers? It was a sweet thing to do. As of July 16, 209 Palestinians have been killed by Israel in their latest assault on the civilians of Gaza, at least 39 of whom are children.
You’re more likely to see your great-grandchildren graduate or hell freeze over than hear a word from him on Palestinian children or criticising Israel’s war crimes.
