Lucifer over Gaza / Bibi rides out again

Relating to the 2014 Israel / Gaza conflict.

” Some kid fires a catapult at you because you occupied his family home by force.
You don’t even sit down and talk with him or his family about an amicable solution.
Instead you go round his family’s new slum and shoot all of them in cold blood, then burn the slum down. That’s the kind of human being we’re talking about here – and our MSM are telling us it’s justifiable and it’s  all perfectly OK ”  – Art Axis

I once saw a film called The Earth Died Screaming..


Wikipedia entry ( with balance ) ;

” Between 2,125[20] and 2,310[18] Gazans were killed and between 10,626[18] and 10,895[51] were wounded (including 3,374 children, of whom over 1,000 were left permanently disabled[52]). Gazan civilian casualty rates estimates range between 70% by the Gaza Health Ministry,[14][22][51] 65% by United Nations Protection Cluster by OCHA (based in part Gaza Health Ministry reports),[19] and 36% by Israeli officials,[53][20] The UN estimated that more than 7,000 homes for 10,000 families were razed, together with an additional 89,000 homes damaged, of which roughly 10,000 were severely affected by the bombing.[54] Rebuilding costs were calculated to run from 4-6 billions dollars, over 20 years.[55]
