Chris Hedges: Israel’s Willing Executioners
Hundreds of thousands of people are being forced to flee, once again, after more than half of Gaza’s population took sanctuary in the border town of Rafah. This is part of Israel’s sadistic playbook.

Kinda wild, kinda wow:
Erdogan claims Israel will seek to occupy parts of Turkey if it defeats Hamas
"Unless it’s stopped… this rogue and terrorist state will set its sights on Anatolia sooner or later”

NSM-20: ‘Inconsistencies’ plague US assessment on Israel’s Gaza war conduct
Advocates say Biden administration is ‘bending over backwards’ to avoid saying whether Israel is violating laws of war.

It isn't just Hamas' Al Qassam Brigades. There are several resistance groups working in unity.
 
Raffa is where all the tunnels are that are used to smuggle everything in from Egypt.  These tunnels are the oldest and most fortified.  The northern tunnels have been pretty much destroyed and are no longer useable.  Also remember that Raffa used to straddle the Gaza / Egypt border and Egypt essentially destroyed the part of Raffa that was on their side.

Hamas depends on their tunnels for their very survival.  That is why they have returned to Raffa and it is their last stand, if Israel is allowed to go in there and finish the job.  Israel is going to take out Hamas and their tunnels and with a little luck maybe bury them in their own tunnels.  Israel has technology where they drop a device that deploys a rapidly expanding foam that essentially makes an airtight plug that is next to impossible to remove.

How do you know they have Hamas cornered?

Biden isn't saying don't destroy Hamas... he, and the rest of the world mostly... are saying that you don't need to kill tens of thousands of people in the process.  Take some time.  Be strategic.  The Israeli problem is that Benji doesn't have time.  He's working for his own preservation... something you support at home and abroad.

For clarity's sake...

Do you support a 2 state solution? 

If so, who should control Gaza after the fighting?



Because they have blown the shit out of everywhere else.

But I'm pretty much in agreement with everything else you said

Frustrated by Gaza Coverage, Student Protesters Turn to Al Jazeera
Students active in campus protests value Al Jazeera’s on-the-ground coverage and its perspective on the Israel-Hamas war. They draw distinctions between it and major American outlets.
Many student protesters said in recent interviews that they were seeking on-the-ground coverage of the war in Gaza, and often, a staunchly pro-Palestinian perspective — and they are turning to alternative media for it. There’s a range of options: Jewish Currents, The Intercept, Mondoweiss and even independent Palestinian journalists on social media, as they seek information about what is happening in Gaza.

Their preferences embody a broader shift for members of Generation Z, who are increasingly seeking out news from a wider array of sources and questioning legacy outlets in a fragmented media ecosystem.
I'd add Electronic Intifada.

You're kidding, right ? 

What they want is the elimination of Israel from the face of the earth and the extermination of all Jews, and nothing less.

And 72 virgins is icing on the cake ...

I think that what is going on in Gaza is the latter.

For every action, there is a reaction.  Those that initiate an action do not always get the reaction intended.

In other words, it is usually a good idea to leave a sleeping dog alone. or don't poke the bear.

Those that may wake up a sleeping dog or poke the bear may not live to tell about it.  That is the risk you take.

And there are some that seek suicide or death by cop by shooting at them hoping that the cop shoots back.

That is about as nuanced as you're going get out of me.
