Iran is claiming the USA has 5000 troops engaged in the invasion. Take it with a grain of salt of course.
For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse. Because knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, and didn’t give thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

The Gazan Health Ministry, run by, of course, Hamas, is now claiming that over 8,000 Gazans have died since Israel started military operations.

It's also claiming that most of those deaths are women and children.

Fortunately, the Biden administration isn't buying it.

"President Biden and the White House have repeatedly rejected the accuracy of Hamas' casualty statistics, with National Security Council spokesman John Kirby sparring with reporters on the topic last week.

"We all know that the Gaza Ministry of Health is just a front for Hamas, it's run by Hamas, a terrorist organization," Kirby responded. "I've said it myself up here, we can't take anything coming out of Hamas, including the so-called Ministry of Health, at face value."

From Fox News


I'd say... whatever Palestinian children have been killed in the fighting can meet up with the Israeli children Hamas slaughtered in the unprovoked attack that started this war.

It would not surprise me at all if Hamas are killing their own "innocent civilians" in order to boost the body count so as to gain international sympathy & support.

After all, they are all martyrs to the cause, right? They will be blessed by Allah.

Yep, we pulled those troops out of our Ukraine contingent.  ;/


I did see on the news this morning that Ergodan in Turkey is threatening to declare war on Israel. Considering that Turkey is a member of NATO, I wonder how that would work out?

There's been talk about expelling Turkey in the past, but that might actually make it happen. Especially if he were to start screaming that NATO must now back Turkey in its war against Israel.

Apparently today, 29OCT23, this is what Palestinians are doing in Gaza:

I haven't found anything as of yet to disprove it.

Interestingly, I saw similar photos emerge from Ukrainian resorts just a couple of weeks ago. (and I'm sure people were doing the same at Russian resorts).

The MSM likes to have people think wars are 24/7 bombing and shooting over every square foot of the countries involved.

I'm not sure but I think it was on Fox News Sunday this morning where the analyst they were interviewing said that Ergodan apparently envisions himself as the next ruler of the Ottoman Empire.

Jews enforced strict dietary customs. OMG! The horror!

Wonder if it occurred to these people that by their own definition they're illegal setters too.

If the Jewish House at Cornell stands on "stolen land", then what land does the rest of Cornell, like where the protestors are standing, stand on?

Meanwhile, in Russia, an antisemitic website called on Russians in a heavily Muslim area to go to the airport and "greet" Jews on an incoming flight from Israel.

Upwards 1,000 showed up and it basically turned into a riot to the point where the website was begging people to not resort to violence.

Right.

At the beginning of this whole debacle someone asked these twitards screaming "sto,en land" that and their answer was that yes, all of the US was stolen,  and if the Natives came to take it back they'd have to let themselves be killed, because the Natives had a right to the land the US is on.

There were quite a few young folks with this particular delusion.

Now this is different
Mice

Quote
This is the terrifying moment a pro-Palestine activists empties a box full of mice into a McDonald's before walking off and shouting 'f*** Israel', as horrified diners fled the infested restaurant.

Not sure I would use the word terrifying but considering how I've seen grown people panic at the sight of one mouse well........

Quote
Diners waiting for meals in the branch at the Star City leisure complex in Birmingham as the mice - spray painted in the colours of the Palestinian flag - are sent scurrying across the floor.

McDonald's confirmed last night that a 'number of mice' were released into the restaurant and it insisted the branch, now reopened, was 'fully sanitised' after the rodents were removed.

The one-man protest is part of wider calls to boycott McDonald's - who have offered free meals to IDF soldiers - along with Starbucks and Disney, for allegedly favouring Israel during the ongoing conflict.

 The clip, captioned 'enjoy your rat burgers', begins with a man holding onto fake number plates that read 'PAIISTN' and 'Free Palestine' as he arrived in his car.

It's kinda sad regarding the rewriting of history to promote the woke philosophy. "The British never bombed civilian targets in WW2". This in response to a WW2 comparison used by Shapiro defending collateral damage by Israelis.

As a Kraut, while the nazis had to go, I grew up hearing perspectives from the other side, and what it was like to go through those bombings. And it's interesting that Hitler of all people, for a very long time, told the German military "no" when they wanted to retaliate in-kind. Just part of "the winners write the history", I guess.

https://barnesreview.org/who-started-the-bombing-of-civilians-in-wwii/

Also regarding history, this student is an example of what happens as "living history" dies. I have exactly two relatives still alive that lived through WW2. They were 3 and 5 at the time. We have no more eyewitnesses to things like the Dresden bombings, so it's easy to see how history can be re-written when everyone that lived it is dead. I mean, getting back to Israel, there are a growing number of college students arguing that the holocaust was "not that bad" or even fake.

The Germans were bombing cities from day one, just the fact the Allies were better at it doesn't change that.

Meanwhile in DC

Quote
Protesters drenched in fake blood caused chaos in Congress on Tuesday by interrupting Antony Blinken's testimony on Israel to demand a ceasefire in Gaza and call for the U.S. to stop 'supporting genocide'.

Demonstrators called the Secretary of State a 'murderer' who has 'blood on his hands' during the tense start to the hearing on Middle East and Ukraine aid to the Senate Appropriations Committee.

His comments were cut off multiple times by members of the audience waving signs calling for an end to the 'siege' of Gaza.

Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin were forced to sit in silence as protesters chanted 'ceasefire now' and held up their hands covered in red paint.

See the link. There is an argument to be made between the difference of bombing civilians and civilian collateral damage from bombings.
