U.S. Blasts Israel for 'Disgraceful' Attack on UN School
inn ^ | 8/3/14 | Elad Benari

Posted on 08/03/2014 4:28:54 PM PDT by Nachum

Israel was once again criticized on Sunday for an attack on a United Nations school in Gaza, which the United States said was “disgraceful”.

According to the AFP news agency, in one of the most strongly-worded statements yet from Washington since the conflict began nearly a month ago, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the United States was "appalled" by the attack on the school in Rafiah.

At least 10 people were killed in the shelling, the third time in 10 days that a UN school has been hit in fighting.

"The United States is appalled by today's disgraceful shelling outside an UNRWA school in Rafah sheltering some 3,000 displaced persons, in which at least 10 more Palestinian civilians were tragically killed," Psaki said in a statement quoted by AFP.

"We once again stress that Israel must do more to meet its own standards and avoid civilian casualties."

She noted that the United Nations had "repeatedly" communicated to the Israeli Defense Forces the coordinates of the school and the world body's other facilities.

The IDF confirmed it had fired on a target "in the vicinity" of the school.

From the same administration that doesn't care how many civilians are killed by a drone strike.

Hey, Jen, UN, 2990 of the 3,000 people in the shelter WEREN'T killed.

Sounds to me like Israel IS minimizing civilian casualties.

Obviously Hamas placed the weapons there in hopes of MORE civilians being killed.

There have been pictures posted all over twitter of Hamas hanging children by their pants on buildings so that if Israel attacks the building, they can use those children’s deaths and use it against Israel..Hamas has already figured out they can’t win the war, but they can win the PR war since they know that their butt buddy Obama is anti Israel and his administration is Anti Israel

With the US media they are unfortunately winning the PR war..not sure if it would make a difference even if no Palestinians were killed because every time Hamas and Israel fight it brings out the Jew hate, not just in the media, but around the world..happened in 2006, happened in 2009, and its happening again..I think with social media, it just brings the cockroaches out even more with their Hitler loving rhetoric

Not sure if this is Karma, Schadenfreude, or timing is a b*tch:

Reporter-—standing in front of UN school condeming Israel for targeting such sites—— has to quickly duck because Hamas launches a missle from the site.

Disgraceful is the silence of Obama while Christian are massacred by Muslims all around Africa and Middle East.

Those who attack Israel should keep in mind that in the quest for a lasting peace, Israel gave back Gaza to the Palestinians. Unfortunately,
“Those who ignore History are damned to repeat it” George Santayana.

Hamas follows a Palestine terrorist tradition. Remember the PLO. Hussein, the king of Jordan opened the door of his country to Palestinian refugees, and in 1970 almost two-thirds of the Jordanian population was Palestinian, and how they show their gratitude, Yasser Arafat, attempted to dethrone King Hussein, to assassinate him in three occasions and to turn his army against him. He lied to the King, betrayed him.

Remember “Black September”: The Jordanian-PLO Civil War of 1970 exploded. A bloodbath ensued. Up to 15,000 Palestinian militants and civilians were killed, swaths of Palestinian towns and refugee camps, where the PLO had massed weapons, leveled, the PLO leadership decimated, and between 50,000 and 100,000 people were left homeless. King Hussein with his loyal Bedouin soldiers expelled the PLO from Jordan by early 1971. King Hussein was criticized, but he eradicated one and for all the cancer of Islamic terrorism from his Kingdom.

History repeats itself. Israel should not stop until Hamas is defeated and his leaders are captured or killed.

one of the most strongly-worded statements yet from Washington

This isn't "Washington". It's OCCUPIED Washington. Now I know how citizens in Vichy France felt. We defeated the USSR over there. But they defeated us over HERE.

It is a fact that Hamas stores explosives in schools and hospitals with or without children or other humans. This is the terrorist way to propagandize hoping to get the misinformed public around the world on their side.....Hamas is evil. Don,t swallow this BS from the United Nations either...DO recognize the hostility from Obama...he acts far more favorably towards Muslims, enemy or not.

absolutely. and as soon as Israel feels like a little more “fun” she should remove all the threat from her northern border (tens of thosands of bombs on missiles, etc.) too.
and there have already been reports of underground tunnel digging from that side of the border into Israel, too...
these must also be removed if there is ever to be anything approaching a peaceful result.
All the IslamoNazi threat must be destroyed first.... lest they just do as they always do and build up yet another serious threat

“”Jen Psaki said the United States was “appalled””

I can’t speak for anyone else but I’M appalled to have this airhead speak for me....We know our country is in bad shape but it’s really brought home when we see the bobbysoxers (showing my age) who are spokespersons at the state department. That place truly is a swamp!

“”That’s pretty disgusting.””

There aren’t enough words to describe how disgusting that is. What’s with these animals anyway? We saw pictures of contractors in Iraq who were killed with their bodies strung up on a bridge. There are pictures online now of HEADS stuck on top of posts in Iraq and now this with children in Gaza?? Are the politicians in the U. S. deaf, dumb and blind? Are the good for nothing’s at the U. N. that stupid to plead for the terrorists? Where on earth is common sense?

This picture needs to go around the world until everyone pining for the poor terrorists begs for mercy and says in one voice - NO MORE!!!!!!

A FIRST HAND TESTIMONY FROM ISRAEL

I feel like I weigh 500 pounds.

Everyone I know feels like they are walking through water. And sad.

We are all so very, very sad.

This is what I know right now, today:

The ugliness, the venom and sheer, violent hatred you are seeing in Paris, London, Berlin, LA, Boston, Denver…. This is just the beginning.

We Jews are the canaries in the coal mine for all of humanity. Today, they are throwing bricks at synagogues and smashing chairs and saying “Kill the Jews.”

Tomorrow it will be someone else.

Do the French really think these people will protect and safeguard the treasures of the Louvre?

Do Londoners really think these people will cherish the symbols of the British Empire?

Does anyone really think this is only about Israel and the disputed territories?

Today it is Israel, tomorrow it will be you.

Maybe that is why everyone gets so disproportionately annoyed about this conflict.

Because everyone knows after us it gets real personal…

Seeing these violent protests, hearing the sickening screams for death we Israelis understand better than ever we must fight for every square inch and with all we have.

It matters not how much better our military is, how much more precise our targets can be.

It only matters that when the smoke clears Hamas is disarmed, destroyed, disabled and defeated. Forever.

Hamas. NOT the people of Gaza.

The majority of Israeli citizens feels so very sorry for them. Sorry they were misguided and elected these lunatics.

Sorry that in their desperation they allowed Hamas to fill the empty bedrooms next to their children’s room with rockets. Sorry that their leaders have mansions and swimming pools and are sitting in air conditioning in another city while they are sweating and wondering where the roof over their houses went. (If not their house itself.) Sorry that they have been brought up with no inkling of who Israelis are nor what compromise is.

Defeating Hamas will be a big problem for the power brokers because shame and honor are all that matter in this part of the world.

Honor in the Middle East does not come from whether your children are literate, how successful you are, how much money you make, how civilized your community is, nor how many paved roads you have, and whether or not you have garbage collection and recycling.

Here in this part of the world- for Hamas,

Honor comes from killing Jews/Israelis and getting revenge each time we retaliate.

For them killing a Jew/ Israeli is everything.

For them killing Jews is the only thing.

Remember we left Gaza. There was no blockade. They were free to build a model democracy- the first successful shining, taste of the new, proud Palestine. But they didn’t want that kind of success…

Fool me once, shame on you.

Fool me twice, shame on me.

We will not be fooled again.

We have nowhere else to go.

And the rockets won’t stop.

The folks living in the Southern parts of Israel up to Ashkelon, cannot shower, have a bowel movement, get more milk or walk a dog without wondering if they are taking their lives in their own hands.

There is another Gaza underneath Gaza.

Hamas could have built hundred of schools, paved thousands of roads, build hundreds of kindergartens with the cement and iron they got from Israel and which they have used to build these underground bunkers and tunnels.
(and you wondered why Israel put a blockade on bringing building supplies into the Gaza strip?)

These tunnels to hell are filled with ammunition.
And no women or children, not a single elderly person is brought to safety there.

They want them on the street- on the roof, standing right behind- nice and close to the terrorist firing the rocket.
Hamas has refused to let journalists out of Gaza.

Why? They need them to take pictures and record the carefully staged piles of bloody children and women. If the journalists leave they have lost the vehicle for distributing their bloody ad campaign.

Hamas asked for a cease-fire. And they broke it. They break every single one.

Israel set up a massive field hospital to treat our enemies. From a week ago and on, there is a working maternity ward, an operating room…a working hospital.
For who?… For our enemies.

We are going to lose more boys. We have lost more than 56 young men. Today the kidnaped a young officer. With each day we are going to lose more.

But everyone here now understands this is a fight to the death. It is them or us.

They don’t want to compromise and they don’t want peace or to share or to negotiate. They want to kill as many Jews as possible, even if it means killing their own people.

So we have to go in there and do things none of us want to do, but we have to.

So this is why we are all so sad.

Israelis want peace so badly.

But we also desperately want to live. We love life and we are not about to let anyone, let alone a bunch of deranged thugs take it away from us.

So yes, this is a fight to the death for both sides.
Remember, if they win, you are next.

When we will win, those symbols of civilization that everyone takes so for granted will remain standing and everyone will criticize and complain about disproportionate responses and war crimes and all kinds of other irrelevant nonsense, but secretly I think everyone will be heaving a sigh of relief.

First, The UN provided those “schools” for Hamas to use them as ‘training centers” for terrorists. Israel needs to flatten the entire GAZA strip and leave no building intact.

Second, the UN needs to be driven OUT of the U.S. lock stock and barrel. It is a useless, blood sucking organization with no backbone or credibility.
