For the fourth Friday in a row, thousands of Palestinians protested near the separation fence between Israel and the Gaza Strip to demand the recognition of their “right of return,” the Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV reported.
Palestinian activists said that this week’s protests had been launched under the name “Friday of the Martyrs and Prisoners.”
Ismail Haniyeh, a political leader of the Palestinian Hamas Movement, participated in the protests near the separation fence for the first time. Hamas’ leader encouraged the protestors to continue their struggle and said that these protests will remove “the border.”
“They [Israeli Army soldiers] are too weak to deter our men, our youth and our women, and these threats are increasing our strength, power, intensity and mass on these borders,” Haniyeh told the crowd of protestors, according to the Palestinian news agency Sama.
The Israeli Army responded to the Palestinian protests with force as it had already done over the last three weeks. According to the al-Mayadeen, four protestors were killed by Israeli Army snipers and more than 500 others were injured with the tear gas and rubber bullets that had been fired by the Israeli Army.
Earlier, the Israeli Army dropped thousands of leaflet over the Gaza Strip warning civilians from participating in the protests and accusing the Hamas Movement of carrying out hostile acts during the protests.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health revealed that the Israeli Army had killed 34 Palestinian protestors and had injured 4,279 others since the outbreak of the protests on March 30. Local sources believe that the Palestinian protests will intensify over the course of the upcoming weeks until it reaches its peak on March 15, the independence day of Israel, that’s known in the Arab World as the “Nakba Day.”
A really sick thing about this is that if the settlers were allowed to, they would be there in their thousands with rifles killing anything that moved.
Paestinians are brave people who expose themselves to murder by the Atheist Zionist nazi government of Israel.
Yah Left not yet.
While I agree, I think your understanding of nazi is driven more by the jewish MSM than truth.
And the world is watching this? Nikki Haley? For how long will this go on? There are protests all over the world but even third world countries don’t kill protesters.
Haley can care less. She is a sold out, immoral whore.
To whom old wise goat?
To whom she represents.
The rest of the World….outside sum Neocon Fucks & IsraHell no one is listening to her…she is a disgrace…a Witch with Borderline Syndrome desperately lookin’ for a Broom…
i fucking hate nikki she justifies her claims by saying its for the american people who want it .. fuck you bitch haley the american people don’t want half the shit you claim they do … she leans to much to one side
She doesn’t lean too much on one side. She has her rotten, sold out soul deeply planted on that one side.
The animals Trump, May and Macron does not see this attrocities. These bastards Trump, May and Macron have taken land from Palestinians and made them homeless. They just interested in butchering Syrian nation.
The animals will make a new false flag and move on.
Yah it’s called the white helmet squad we can do it for nominal fee. Another Arab eating another Arab.
All white Helmets basterds are Israeli dogs. They are not Arabs. Look to their dirty faces. They look like evils.
On a related note …
Utmost respect to Natalie Portman for telling Israel to shove their Genesis Prize up their not-so-kosher asses.
She has to remove from her head .
Remote what from her head?
Why don’t those monsters work it out. We use BDS because…. a) we don’t have a government with a spine. b) the government is too corrupt. I go for b) Yes. Respect to Natalie.
A and B are the same to me.
The monsters in question are a small group of people who believe they must absolutely rule the world, absolutely. They don’t want to work things out. They want to establish a feudal-like system where everyone below is to be exploited like cattle while natural resources are looted.
Do you really believe she cares about what is happening? She’s only looking out for herself. But, I guess the Palestinians can take whatever success comes their way.
I can’t entitle myself to answer for her but she made it clear that it was due to the latest events in Gaza.
Going to Israel and accepting the prize would have been the best option to look out for herself. Yet, she didn’t.
I disagree. Accepting the prize would not be the best option for her which she wisely turned down. I don’t know if she’s still involved in the UN or not, but that UNGA vote regarding Jerusalem is telling on which way the wind is blowing in this World. She’s thinking of her future and the clever ones always go with the wind. Unless there’s evidence (besides this incident) of her switching sides (i.e. pro-Palestinian), she’s just another opportunist to me.
US/UK/France/Saudis have created chaos in Syria that the world population forget Palestine, Yarushlam and the great Mosque Al-Aqsa which have hidden many stories in their hearts.
Rob, yes we’re well aware of what’s going on. I’m not sure what you’re trying to say. Omega and I were talking about Natalie Portman’s decision.
Trump/May/Macron attacked Syrian nation to protect their terrorist Israel in Palestine.
That’s one way to look at it but I don’t see how refusing the prize is to go with the wind. Care to share your thoughts? She is (seems?) against the Likud Party and thus, could it be a media ploy in favor of the opposition?
At the end of the day, she’s an actress and Hollywood, not the countries who voted at UNGA, is her employer. We know who runs Hollywood.
Let’s say she accepts the prize, Likud and friends are happy, she gets roles in movies, BUT her fans (former that is) and potential customers that disapprove of Israel’s action, would boycott her works (i.e. think the BDS movement). Any future opportunities other than movies, could be in jeopardy because of her past decision. Accepting the prize would be short term gain for her, but long term pain.
I’m hoping that I’m making sense. Another example, think of the times that corporate sponsors walk away when their ‘mascot’ do something stupid in public (i.e. Tiger Woods DUI incident). In this case, it’s the reverse.
I have no idea about the media ploy angle. I don’t know how active Natalie is, in the internal affairs of Israel; nor do I follow her career. One thing for sure, she can’t go running to Sheldon Adelson for help in the future.
42 people murdered in cold blood to date, thousands injured. So, where are the defenders of the “free world” now? They launched 105 cruise missiles at Syria on rumours of a chlorine gas attack that supposedly killed 40 people. Which, has clearly shown to be a lie. If they continue to do nothing, they continue to be complicit in this monstrous crime. Russia needs to find its voice on this issue. Now would be a good time to threaten breaking off diplomatic relations. The world is watching. Russia has to move on to the front foot to gain recognition as the “good guys” in all of this. The Palestinian People need action from a country that really counts.
I can’t agree more. Your comment reminds me of an article I read yesterday:
Media Cover-up: Shielding Israel is a Matter of Policy
Equally agreed on Russia’s much needed stance in the matter. China would be too but according to a recent audio leak from Netanyahu, the Chinese leaders don’t care about human rights. For now, we have news outlets like RT covering up the events in rather depth.
Why wait for Russia, piss on them as they play political/economic games, begin with oneself. Refuse to buy Items made in Israeli or firms by Jews and Israelis in own nation, and boycot the firms that support their causes. Remember “GOOGEL AND FACEBOOK, ALL OUR SOCIAL CIVIL MEDIA AGREE TO CENSOR ANYTHING THEY DISLIKE AGAINST ISRAELI ZIONIST ACTIONS. This means almost all Universities as well. Always we sit and wait for some civil Messiah to join with, well we mostly are not Russians, so begin closer to where we live. All great leaders need followers and while we as an individual may not be real leaders of multitudes we can lead our families, especially brothers, sisters and children by our examples.
The animals Trump, May and Macron have poisoned Palestinians drinking water.
They didn’t need to by there presents they spoiled their own lot.
The Egyption, Indian, Pakistani, Turkish and Saudi bastards are silent now. Where is now there united army of 43 Muslim countries. All have been f*cked.
More than 40 killed and over 2.000 injured in the span of 4 weeks, but it’s OK as long as they were not phantom-gassed…Or maybe the victims just don’t count unless they are “rescued” by “White helmets”. The Palestinians simply fail to follow the “proper procedure” when getting slaughtered in cold blood, otherwise Nikki Haley would be showing the photos of their dead children in the UN too and sponsor resolutions to bomb Ziostan. But too do procedural issues she is forced to – veto the requests for independent inquiry into the mass killings…
Exactly how it is. They are dying the wrong way.
where is the UN now to stop all this madness, I guess there needs to be a staged gas attack for the world to react at the Jews aggression
Understand that the UN caters to those that pay their bills. Currently the US contributes the most to the operating cost of the UN. Thus, if the US ignores the madness, so does the UN.
Nakba Day is 15 May not 15 March.
IsraHell you got it Comin’…can’t stop it…
…and the sooner the better. There will be a world-wide celebration like never seen before.
Zionism is proving itself to be the functional equivalent of Nazism
Das sind eben die Zionisten und Landräuber, die den gesamten Vorderen Orient seit nunmehr 70 Jahren ins Chaos treiben. Humanität ist für Netanjahu ein Fremdwort, Menschenleben sind nichts wert. Man denke dabei nur an diverse Mordkommandos des Mossad im Ausland. Israel ist und bleibt ein Terrorstaat!
I think jerusalem should be like the vatican nobody should be able to lay claim to it as it is home to three major religions i personally think that’s the best way to keep peace and a level of fairness for everybody within the region but i’m interested in hearing other opinions or options for that case
This is getting more pointless every day, obviously nothing in the strategic situation is changing due to the machinations. All that Hamas can do is maintain authority over their internal enemies by pretending to oppose the Israelis.
And of course if Israel kill protesters all is well but if this happens in Libya, Syria or Ukraine the western world directly invades the countries. No Zionist spring, huh MSN?
Maybe good idea for Hamas to start up their own white helmets
Whith good camerateam and YouTube channel.
I am glad Israeli decided to drop warning leaflets, make good fire starters on cool morons and cuts down on cost of toilet tissue. The Israeli military is those who US police hire to train our ,U. S. A. Police in crowd control. I do not yet know why as there are not enough people in US with balls to protest. MAy not be enough reasoning ability in US minds or that we just do not care about justice for ourselves so why worry about people thousands of miles away. Main reason US silent as Palestinians die and harmed is that after generations of indoctrination that Israel and it’s Jews are G— “Chosen Ones” they Canaan do no wrong. Then again there is a cultural mean streak of the love of war, bigotry that allows US to kill any non Americans we want without repercussions. MY NOD GOES TO THESE PALESTINIAN AND GAZA PROTESTORS AS THEY ARE GREAT EXAMPLE OF WHAT REAL COURAGE IS. NICE to see a so called Islamic religious leader getting off his ass and “leading from the front” instead of doing what so many of other so called leaders do, sitting in a mosque telling others to go face bullets, gas, and beatings while they stay away topray.
With Egypt bought off by Israhell /Rothschilds, …very little quality military equipment can find its way to Gaza or Westbank. Jordan is another bought off vassal. ATGMs/MANPADs would give Hamas the reach to defeat Israel and create a Internet shit storm As Israhell tries to hide it’s military losses. A Submarine could supply offshore Gaza with coordinated planning on where Israel’s coastal patrols would be. Sinai and possibly a tunnel system Egyptians do not know about. Egypts military could be schemed upon to capture Their ATGMS, MANPADS. ..steal that and get it to Gaza FSA and ISUS over ran many Syrian military bases…or captured units during movement. ..getting Tanks to ATGMS. Gazans need to be proactive. ..go out into the Sinai and take the Egyptian military @
They just walk in range of Israeli snipers, give them a reason to shoot and then stand there until they are killed or wounded. This is not the behavior of free men, women and children. These people are controlled or drugged and they are being forced to sacrifice themselves because of Hamas cowardice. Never send a Hamas fighter when you can sacrifice women and children. Looks like the term Hamas Fighter is an oxymoron.
