Jake Morphonios explains that Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) killed multiple civilians, including a pregnant woman and her child, claiming that the Palestinians launched 150 rockets, thus justifying retaliation. In 1967, the Israeli government militarily seized vast swathes of Palestinian land, and to prevent the Palestinians from returning to their homes, Israel built Jewish-only housing settlements. Since then, a very small number of Palestinian radical militants occasionally launch relatively primitive rockets into Israel, and this is used as an excuse by the IDF to react with a brutal military response for collective punishment to the entire Palestinian population. During the Gaza War of 2014, Operation Protective Edge, was extremely lopsided when Israel killed 2,300 Palestinians (and 75% were non-combative civilians) while the Palestinians fired over 4,500 small rockets into Israel that killed a grand total of six people. During the six-week conflict, Israel destroyed more than 17,000 Palestinian homes and 244 schools. Jake Morphonios believes that Israel now is preparing a repeat of the 2014 massacre. He also warns against a potential false-flag operation to justify an aggressive war with Iran and Yemen – in the name of righteous retaliation.
Today, the Saudi military blew up a school bus that killed at least 50 people, mostly children. Incredibly, the Saudis said the attack was justified. The Saudis have had a continuous blockade on the ports of Yemen, which has contributed to mass starvation and the worst cholera outbreak in the last century. Unfortunately, the Saudis are militarily backed by the US government, with President Trump’s endorsement.
