Israel Kills Dozens at Gaza Border as U.S. Embassy Opens in Jerusalem

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

WEB Notes: This is not a protest. Protests do not include 58 deaths and 1,350 people who are wounded, that is a soft war. I keep hearing about all of these explosives the Palestinians are using, but all of the photos I see shows them throwing stones or using slings to do it. Israel has a right to defend their borders if they are in fact being encrouched upon, but this level of force…

Can you imagine if the US border patrol started shooting all of the illegals coming across the border? The world would be outraged, but when Israel does it, the Christian community makes excuses for it.

A mass attempt by Palestinians to cross the border fence separating Israel from Gaza turned violent, as Israeli soldiers responded with rifle fire. Monday became the bloodiest day since the campaign of demonstrations began seven weeks ago to protest Israel’s economic blockade of Gaza.

Tens of thousands of Palestinians took part in the Gaza protests. Protests also took place on the West Bank, where the focus was the embassy move.

By late in the evening, 58 Palestinians, including several teenagers, had been killed and more than 1,350 wounded by gun fire, the Health Ministry said. Israeli soldiers and snipers used barrages of tear gas as well as live gunfire to keep protesters from entering Israeli territory.

    Supposedly DEBKA File (a Mossad front–by deception thou shalt do war, right?) reported that Palestinians were putting bombs in the new embassy…never happened. Can’t trust US leadership, nor Israeli. But don’t forget, the Talmud says Jews can lie to Gentiles (even though the folks running Israel aren’t even Jews, but Ashkenazim (supposedly, Khazars)…not even Semites). This has been proven by Eran Elhaik, an Israeli Jew geneticist working at Johns Hopkins U and Shlomo Sand, Israeli historian–both claim Palestinians have more “Jewish” DNA than Ashkenazim do! Makes one wonder who the real anti-semites are!

  2. Does Gaza even have a border? Does Israel? (I mean, an official border?)

    • If you look on a map you will see Gaza has a “border”, usually dotted as it is in dispute. Even the nation called Israel is in dispute. They were never to move outside of the original borders per the UN agreement which saw the nations founding. However, today, the map looks far different than it did in 1948 or even 1967 for that matter.

  3. The Scofield Reference Bible peddled to the seminaries made ordinary Christians into Zionists. We are not to worship a people. The same group that chased after Paul to murder him in the Book of Acts, the vagabond jews.
    Thanks Brandon

    • Can you explain further what you mean that it was sold to seminaries and the effect it had on the Christian community. Where is this information from if you please? Thank you.

      • The Scofield Reference Bible endorses Zionism in its side bar footnotes. It also endorses the rapture doctrine that was being taken up by the denominations after the 1830 dark dream from an ill Scottish teenager by completely omitting Ezekiel chapter 13, which specifically tells us that our Father is against those that teach His children to fly. Have access to Scofield Reference Bible to see it. Scofield claimed he left the KJV intact, he lied. Ezekiel 13 in KJV when I read that I did not need my Strong’s Concordance to explain what it was about. By popularizing dispensationalism Scofield was doing disservice to Christians and Jews. All God’s creation is under one dispensation of time presently that is the fifth – Grace. We are under grace by repentance on the shed blood of Christ on the cross. Paul writes in Colossians 2:14 “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross;” These ordinances are the animal sacrifices and flesh circumcision, the circumcision now is of the heart. I have been largely using the Companion Bible by Bullinger. Hope that helps.

  4. it is interesting, that “reasonable” man would actually try to get through Israeli borders like this. Israeli response rarely deviates. Usually with their level of actions, reason should dictate to not take the chance. They (Israeli) are known for their “red-line” attitude as a disciplinarian, for the sake of discipline, father might be.
