Israel told UNRWA and red cross to evacuate Hamas wasn't letting them.
A reply from pax-arabica

"According to eyewitness accounts, the "Kaa-Albir” school was hit by four shells fired by IDF forces. According to one testimony, one of the shells struck the school’s court, which at the time was crowded with refugee families, who relocated there after fleeing their homes in the northern Gaza Strip. Reports say the majority of the dead are women and children. Survivors say no early warning was given." - Haaretz. (emphasis my own)

Even your own newspapers tell a different story.

Don’t make crap up. Have a shred of respect for the loss of innocent life.

You think by doing this you’re helping your cause? You’re doing the opposite. You can’t hide things in this day and age, not like you’ve been used to for the last 6 decades. Free information transfer means Israel gets exposed.

By making stuff up on the spot, not only do you show your cause to be weak and in need of fantasy to survive, but you also show that you are a liar, and nobody should ever take your word on anything.


Hey so, remember that UN school that all the displaced Gazans fled to for shelter?

Israel just bombed it.

Dozens dead so far, nobody is sure just how many.

What are you going to say now? That the bloody UNRWA was firing rockets at Israel?

Jehad Saftawi, IMEU:

"On July 16, while I was in eastern Gaza City taking photos of the many buildings recently destroyed by Israeli forces, a man approached me and asked if I wanted to enter his home to take photos of the inside.

I accepted his offer and as he showed me around, I learned his name is Khamis Mraish and that his brother, Dr. Riad Mraish, ran a clinic from the home.  As Khamis took me through each corner of the house, he described in detail the damage in every room. Most of the family’s belongings, including Dr. Mraish’s medical equipment, were now ruined, scattered in pieces and covered with debris.

It was horribly sad to witness his pain — and how he so badly wanted to share his story with the world. And the more people I speak with, the more I realize there is this same feeling everywhere. The people in Gaza want, and need, the world to see what they are going through.”


One period drama per post: The Crimson Field

I am a nurse. You bring me shattered men with shattered bodies and shattered minds and I will try and put them back together again. And if I can’t, I will stay with them until the very last moment and beyond. No, I am a nurse

I’ve just cried laughing at the comments on a Jamie Oliver recipe, there was a typo on the website and everyone put 13 lemons into a pasta sauce and didn’t even question it. Imagine eating 13 lemons, the recipe was for 4 people, imagine having that much trust in Jamie Oliver.

"One of the most durable paradoxes of white supremacy - the idea that those who are closest to an experience of oppression are its least credible witnesses."

Walter Johnson, Soul by soul: life inside the antebellum slave market

This is the type of violence—from microaggressions to epistemic violence to emotional/physical violence to enslavement/genocide—that gets justified by asserting that the oppressor is “objective” and “logical” and thereby “credible.” As if there is objectivity in choosing to oppress. As if the emotions of entitlement, indifference, greed or hatred aren’t involved.
