Every day is 4th of July in Gaza

The only difference to an American 4th of July is that the Israeli fireworks are going off among Gazans. Open the link and ask yourself, why is woman at bottom smiling? And why is US financing these crimes against humanity? Here is the full story:

"The world has reacted with outrage after journalist Allan Sorensen posted a photograph of the so-called “Sderot cinema”, which showed Israelis flocking for a good view of the bombing, with one woman winking at the camera and giving the thumbs-up as deadly rockets light up the night sky.

Sorensen’s newspaper, Denmark’s Kristeligt Dagblad, reported that the event attracted more than 50 people who had turned the hill into something that resembled “the front row of a reality war theatre”.

It said people were celebrating the deadly light show by cheerfully sharing popcorn, smoking hookahs and applauding the bomb blasts."

Existential threat to Israel? Israeli crimes against humanity

Israel always trots out the imagined Palestinian existential threat to Israel's existence for "mowing the grass," their periodic destruction of Gaza's pitiful infrastructure and pitiful people, mainly civilians, to keep the Palestinians In Gaza and the West Bank terrorized. Both the US government and mainstream media promote the false narrative that Gazans woke up one day and decided to precipitate self destruction by lobbing a few rockets into Israel. Bunk. An honest review of the facts reveals that Israel used the June 12 killing of three Israeli teens, never linked to Hamas, to launch attacks and inflict terror against Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank. These consisted of 110 bombing raids, a military incursion, 17 killings, mass arrests -- all before Hamas fired its first rocket on July 7. Part of Israel's terror campaign involved whipping up Israeli citizens to rampage against Palestinians, including burning alive one Palestinian.

But this latest grass mowing in Gaza is causing world wide revulsion in the civilized world, increased impetus to boycott Israel, and even greater instability in the Middle East and hatred against the US for being Israel's chief enabler of its inhumane subjugation of the Palestinian people. Now Israel is facing an occupied population which is increasingly ready to die quickly with human dignity by fighting back when no nation will take up their cause, rather than die from the slow genocide practiced against them. Ultimately, Israel's refusal to end their policy of extending their one state solution of a Greater Israel with no room, no food, no resources, no jobs and no humanity for the Palestinians will be their undoing. That, and not ineffective rockets fired by the doomed in the world's largest open air prison, is the existential threat to Israel.
