IDF Kills 7 Palestinians During 2nd "Great March Of Return" Protest; 2 Teenagers Among The Dead

Update (3 pm ET): Now that the sun has set on Gazans' second "Great Return March", Reuters is reporting that Israeli troops shot and killed a total of seven Palestinian protesters while wounding at least 200 along the Israel-Gaza border.

That raises the death toll to 27 between today's demonstration and last Friday.

The dead include two minors - a 16 and 17-year-old boy.

The crowds were slightly smaller than last week's demonstration. Protesters gathered around five different encampments set up along the border, Reuters reported.

IDF snipers have been instructed to shoot any demonstrator who wanders too close to the border fence - something that many younger Gazans have tried.

After more than 20 Palestinians were killed during protests along the Gaza border fence last Friday, all of whom were subsequently labeled as violent terrorists by the IDF, and hundreds more were wounded (many of them under the age of 18), thousands of Gazans marched to the border for the latest in a series of planned demonstrations leading up to the anniversary of Israel's founding on May 15.

Palestinians have a much different interpretation of that day: For them, it's the anniversary of the Nakba (literally "catastrophe") when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced from their land during the establishment of Israel.

Palestine

The demonstrations, deemed "the Great Return March" by their organizers, are meant to agitate for "the right of return" - the ability for Palestinians to return to their ancestors' land.

Despite urging from the United Nations to ensure that the IDF refrains from using unnecessary lethal force, Israeli forces are once again hurling tear gas and using other "riot dispersal means" to handle crowds at five locations along the border, according to a series of tweets from the IDF.

 

 

 

 

According to RT, IDF soldiers have been given orders to shoot protesters who get too close to the border fence. The US has urged demonstrators to stay 500 meters from the fence. Meanwhile, human rights groups are urging soldiers to refuse orders to fire on demonstrators. Hamas, the party that controls Gaza, has called for the International Criminal Court to investigate last week's deaths.

Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Tuesday that anybody who comes too close to the fence "will endanger their lives."

"We have set very clear rules [of engagement] and we have no intention of changing them," he said. "We are determined to protect the security of Israeli citizens, of course, first and foremost, in the area of Gaza, and there will be no compromise on this issue, no flexibility."

Liz Throssell, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, reminded Israel of "its obligations to ensure that excessive force is not employed against protesters and that in the context of a military occupation, as is the case in Gaza, the unjustified and unlawful recourse to firearms by law enforcement resulting in death may amount to a willful killing, a grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention," per Al Jazeera.

Gazans have set up several tent encampments along the border. Hundreds gathered near Khuzaa, one area along the border, before noon prayer on Friday.

According to the latest updates from AJ, at least five Palestinians have been wounded so far by live ammunition. Palestinians are gathering hundreds of tires, which they plan to burn to create a smokescreen to stop Israeli snipers from picking off demonstrators.

Watch a live feed of the demonstrations below:

Gazans demands to return to Israel are understandable given that the UN has ruled that Gaza City, one of the most densely populated areas on the planet, could become unlivable within three years.

It all started in the Middle East and it will end in the Middle East:

Genesis 2:11-14  The name of the first is Pishon: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;  (12)  and the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.  (13)  And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Cush.  (14)  And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth in front of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.

Revelation 16:16  And they gathered them together into the place which is called in Hebrew Har-Magedon.

This will take place in the last 7 years:

There are no ancient Jewish cities in Israel,...
but there are lots of ancient Greek cities.

What is weird is this; that 2000 years ago, it seems that there were no people even resembling Jews, in Israel.

It turns out that there is not a single ancient Jewish city in what is now called Israel. There is not a single ancient city where Hebrew characters are used on the statues and buildings. There is not a single ancient city where the buildings are in the ancient Jewish architectural style. In fact, there is not even a category of "ancient Jewish architectural style".

Of course, the Hebrew characters that are desired, are those of the Dead Sea scrolls (supposedly from 2000 years ago), which are essentially the modern Hebrew characters without points.

If you check out all the ancient cities in Israel from 2000 years ago, they are all Greek, and their ruins are still there for you to visit. Their inscriptions are in the Greek script and the buildings are in the ancient Greek architectural styles.

Here is a list of some of the known ancient Greek cities in (and near) Israel; Ecdippa, Seleucia, Ptolemais, Taricheia Arbela, Asochis, Sepphoris, Hippos, Dion, Sycaminum, Bucolon Polis, Itabyrium, Gadara, Abila, Dora, Comus, Gephrus, Crocodilion Polis, Caesarea, Straton's Tower, Narbata, Scythopolis, Pella, Samaria, Amathus, Ragaba, Gerasa, Apollonia, Sicima, Pegae, Joppa, Arimathea, Jamnia, Port of Jamnia, Lydda, Modiin, Aphaerema, Philadelphia, Birtha, Gazara, Beth Horon, Dok, Jericho, Samaga, Esbus, Medaba, Ladder of Tyre, Azotus, Port of Azotus, Accaron, Jerusalem, Ascalon, Anthedon, Gaza, Marissa, Beth Zur, Hebron, Adora, Engeddi.

The ancient Jewish cities in Israel are,....... well there aren't any. Not even one.

Here's an interesting example of a first century BC Greek inscription (i.e., in Greek letters) from Jerusalem's Temple Mount forbidding the entry of strangers to the Temple precinct.

http://www.preearth.net/images/no-foreigner-shall-enter.jpg

The pictured stone was found in 1935. It was actually the second such warning-stone to be found, the first being discovered by Charles Simon Clermont-Ganneau in 1871. It was deemed so dangerous to the "Jews inhabited Israel 2000 years ago" theory, that it completely disappeared for 13 years before resurfacing in Istanbul, where, it was correctly calculated, it would not attract much attention.

From: https://www.timesofisrael.com/ancient-temple-mount-warning-stone-is-clo…

The first Jerusalem Temple Mount warning-stone, now found in the Archaeology Museum, Istanbul, is pictured below:

http://preearth.net/images/jerusalem-temple-warning-at-istanbul.jpg

It says (in Greek): "No stranger is to enter within the balustrade round the temple and enclosure. Whoever is caught will be responsible to himself for his death, which will ensue."

Slack Jack's CHALLENGE:

Name ONE ancient city (that existed in what is now called Israel) where the building inscriptions are all in Hebrew, and the buildings are constructed in the ancient Hebrew architectural style (whatever that may be).

Then give a summary of "the ancient Hebrew architectural style" (you will have to make this up as it does not yet exist).

Then give links to photos of the ancient building inscriptions which show that they are written in Hebrew.

Then show that the buildings are constructed in the ancient Hebrew architectural style (that you have just invented).

It's been months now and still no one is up to the challenge.

Kill them all and GET IT FUCKING OVER-WITH!

War is fucking hell; if you don't like it, then don't attack or provoke the other side unless you're prepared to die!

These endless fucking "Protests"! Palestinians, sorry fuckheads, you were conquered long ago. You're on a LONG list of conquered peoples..sucks yeah, but that's the way the world rolls.

If you want the land back, TAKE IT BACK..but you'll need more than rocks and sticks..which is what you also appear to have for brains...there's yer problem.

PS, some of my recent ancestors were conquered people too; but I've moved on..I live about 6000 miles from where I would be living were it not for my ancestors land being "stolen"...move on...why not head for the EU? I hear they have the welcome mat out.

Israel’s approach is  the “walk softly and carry a big stick”  unlike the typical Arab bravado  of “talk loudly but carry a little dick”. 

Reminds me of Bagdad Bob threatening GWB of responding with a Mother of all Wars. Turned out to be nothing  but a joke. 

Israel could be done with these pathetic tunnel digging creatures in 15 minutes if they chose to. Anybody that doesn’t realize this is a fool.

We don't have any remaining buildings, but that shouldn't be too surprising.  The Holy Land has been overrun by invaders numerous times and is prone to earthquakes.

There are plenty of inscriptions on objects in Hebrew and pre-Hebrew Canaanite/Semitic, such as the Deir Alla Inscription and the Siloam Inscription.

The Temple Mount warning is written in Greek because that's the language that foreign visitors to Jerusalem were most likely to understand.  Greece was the lingua franca of the eastern Roman Empire.  Jews would have been welcome, so there was no reason to carve a warning to foreigners in Aramaic, the language of Palestine around 1 AD.

Hope this helps.

Fables of Ancient Israel Now Being Dissected

Excerpt:

Be ready for a major upsetting of the apple cart. Unknown to almost all laymen, a huge number of scholars have quietly come together agreeing on a historical fact that will overturn the entirety of “court history” when all the facts they have gathered become widely known. They agree that the various tales of “ancient Israel” are largely fictional...

King Solomon was a fictional, composite character based on Amenhotep III and Shalmaneser III.

This is from the Domain of Man site:

In the Bible, King Solomon is said to have:

1) Inherited a vast empire conquered by his father David that extended from the Nile in Egypt to the Euphrates River in Mesopotamia.

2) Accumulated great wealth and wisdom.

3) Administered his kingdom through a system of 12 districts.

4) Possessed a large harem, which included "the daughter of Pharaoh".

5) Honored other gods in his old age.

6) Devoted his reign to great building projects, including:

a) the Temple.

b) the Royal Palace.

c) the walls of Jerusalem,

d) the Millo (an earthen fill made to enlarge Jerusalem)

e) the royal cities of Megiddo, Hazor, and Gezer

f) the store cities, the cities for his horsemen and the cities for his chariots throughout his empire.

To be consistent with the pattern of other great Bronze and Iron Age cultures in the ancient Near East (Egyptian, Babylonian, Assyrian, and Hittite), it would be expected that numerous documents, art, and inscriptions on buildings or public monuments would have been left by such a great king or by his descendants later in honor of him. Yet no article of any kind bearing his name has ever been found.

The cities of Hazor, Megiddo and Gezer have now been extensively excavated. A stratum containing large palaces, temples and strong fortifications was found in each of these cities. The name of Solomon was not found, but the cartouche of the 18th Dynasty Pharaoh Amenhotep III instead. In Jerusalem, it has not been possible to excavate the temple mount, however, extensive excavations in the city, including the areas adjacent to the temple mount have not revealed the existence of a Solomaic palace complex. Moreover, excavation of the Millo has revealed (due to pottery found in the Millo) that its original construction was also contemporary with the Egyptian 18th Dynasty of Amenhotep III.

The Koran never once mentions Jerusalem. The Bible mentions it many times. Get real. 

Jewish tribes living in Mecca and Medina predate Islam by a long, long time. Mohammed came along a slaughtered them when they would not submit to him. Lined up 900 men and boys of one tribe, had them all beheaded and raped their women that night.

So do those Jewish tribes get the "right to return" to Mecca and Medina? Thought not.

Since your hooked on inscriptions find me some ancient Muslim stones that predate the Jews anywhere. 

I'll wait.

Islam is still trying to slaughter infidels, they do not care which. Everywhere Islam is, they slaughtered the indigenous people. Do all those people get the right of return?

 

I dont have a dog in this hunt, it is a local matter but I kinda like the Izzy's poking the shitstain of Islam in the eye.

 

Palestinian leadership must be getting low on foreign donations to steal from their own people. Palestinian people are betrayed by their own super-corrupt leaders---- being used to generate more funds. The leadership does not care, they walk home with bank.

Beginning with the Land Day protests on 30 March, the regime killed 18 Palestinians while 1,416 were injured. This massacre did not end the violence as more unarmed protesters were shot at throughout the weekend. Images of tanks firing at young men who were later chased by weaponised drones have led to urgent calls to curtail the situation. While the UN Security Council met to try and address the issue, the US blocked even a simple statement condemning the regime for its grotesque display of violence.

As more video emerged including that of a Palestinian demonstrator running from gun fire being shot in the back, it became clear that the 30 March Land Day protests may have been a point of no return for a regime that thrives on violence.

The criminal zionist regime protected by its faithful stupid attack goy dog ,US.

And it's only the beginning.

Expect terrible things after the US moves its embassy in May ,unilaterally recognizing Jerusalem as capital of the zionist entity.

The fate of Palestine will be decided by non Arab nations: Iran,Turkey and Russia.Like Syria's fate  was.

And US will be booted out completely from the ME. Let's see how chosen are the chosen after this.
