Sometimes I think there's a toggle switch on some folks.  One position is Spout Feelings, and the other position is Think.  There's no middle position, and on some people this switch is stuck.

I once ate at an Jewish-owned kosher deli.

That makes me as much of an expert as she is.

Well, at least Spain is balancing its rampant anti-Semitism with not being willing to reach out and provide sanctuary to Palestinians.

Miss "I can't be fired" because of DEI got fired and it finally took her treatment of the sister of a Hamas hostage to do it.
And before you ask, yes she's screaming racism
I'm sure MSNBC or a university has already made her an offer though

Was attending a "peace festival" when Hamas showed up.
Both her and her BF haven't been seen since.

Shocking moment Israeli student, 25, is kidnapped from desert rave by Hamas militants and separated from her still-missing boyfriend - as her family share footage of her being held in Gaza amid invasion that left the Middle East on the brink of all-out war
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12606047/israeli-student-kidnapped-desert-rave-hamas-family-footage-gaza-missing-boyfriend-invasion-war.html

She was rescued along with 3 others
Seems to be in good condition physically. Mentally? Time will tell.
Her BF is still in captivity

Noa is free! Israel rescues Noa Argamani who was kidnapped by Hamas motorbikers along with three other hostages seven months after they were snatched in deadly October 7 attack

Good. Now that she's free, I hope the IDF goes in and kills her kidnappers. And anyone else complicit in holding her.

Yeah, screw cease fires, hunt Hamas down and finish them.

If you're a kidnapped or complicit in them? Shot on sight.

Unconfirmed, but I heard it on the news that these hostages were rescued from "civilian" homes where they were held. Innocent Palestinian civilians, man.

I wouldn't be surprised if the remaining hostages still alive aren't also being held in "civilian homes".

I haven't looked but would be willing to bet over at MSNBC the headline will read "Innocent Palestinian civilians killed in Israeli raid" with maybe a passing mention of the hostages buried n the article.

The Israelis must have great intelligence on the ground if they can go in and find the hostages like this.

Oddly enough, the MSNBC headline is "4 Israeli hostages, including Noa Argamani, rescued from Gaza."

But, just when you think there's hope... The first paragraph reads...

"Four Israeli hostages who were kidnapped by Hamas from the Nova music festival on Oct. 7 have been rescued, Israeli security forces said, marking the second time in eight months of Israel’s brutal assault on Gaza that hostages have been rescued alive.

No mention of the Hamas slaughter festival that kicked off Israel's response, just mention of their being taken from a music festival. I guess it wasn't brutal.

The number of Israelis killed in the attack isn't mentioned until the last paragraph, and then it's juxtapositioned right beside the claims of "Gaza officials" (that should read Hamas anti-Israeli militants) that 36,000 Gazans have been killed by Israel.

Somehow I suspect that were "Gazan officials" to claim that 1 billion Gazans have been killed by Israel MSNBC would run with it without question.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. *expletive deleted*ck Hamas, *expletive deleted*ck the Gazan people for supporting them, *expletive deleted*ck their screeching and wailing for a cease fire now that they've punched a hornet's nest, and *expletive deleted*ck mouthpieces like MSNBC who parrot the Israel is evil line without question.

Of course not! They just go in and slaughter everyone who doesn't look Israeli. After all, that's what "genocide" is all about, no? Killing those who don't look like you.

I really wish I had read MSNBC's coverage of the initial Hamas assault on Israel.

But, I'm sure it was couched along the lines of "Brave Hamas Freedom Fighters Strike Blow for Palestinian Independence"

Along with "some Jews died and others were kidnapped, but who cares about them"

I have a funny feeling that Israel is going to wipe Gaza off the map.

All of the terrorism apologists are going to go out of their minds over how cruel and ruthless Israel is.


Just harkening back to what I said on October 8.

Don't mean to toot my own horn, but...

nailed it.

The hostages should not have been rescued. They were alive, so they should have been left where they were to preserve Palestinian lives.

Israel killed more than estimated so far 150 Palestinian civilians in an operation to release 4 prisoners of war.
The prisoners were all alive and in good health.
Hamas did not kill any of the 4 POWs.
You CANNOT ignore this!

200 Palestinian terrorists/terrorist supporters dead to rescue 4 innocent Israelis?

Sounds proportional to me.

I also note that "POW" is being thrown around a lot.

I don't know for sure, but I'm pretty sure that except under very limited circumstances, civilians cannot be prisoners of war, they can only be kidnapped hostages.
