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.
