Protest against Israel planned Monday in downtown Youngstown

Published: Sun, July 13, 2014 @ 4:06 p.m.

The Arab Community Center of Liberty is sponsoring the demonstration


The Arab American Community Center of Liberty will hold a demonstration at 3 p.m. today at the Federal Courthouse on Market Street across from the Mahoning County Courthouse regarding the conflict in Gaza in the Middle East.

A press release from the center says the demonstration will be held to “voice our opinion” against Israel’s actions.

The New York Times reported Sunday that the death toll among Palestinians is 158, at least half of them noncombatants, and more than 1,100 Palestinians have been injured.

How about voicing an opinion about launching thousands of missile's at civilian populations.
One side of this conflict uses missile's to protect people, the other side uses people to protect missile's. You can be assured these "Arab Americans" won't have a word to say about the terrorist aspect of thousands of rockets and missile's falling on the heads of Jew's. You FOOLS are supporting TERRORIST'S.

About every two years since 2006, Israel has viciously attacked defenseless Palestinians in
Gaza leaving thousands of them dead and tens/hundreds of thousands of them wounded and/or homeless. Since 2007 Israel, along with the cooperation of the military dictatorships in Egypt, has converted Gaza into the world's largest open-air prison denying them basic supplies to feed their families; rebuild their homes; and care for their sick. Now they even bomb a mosque during Ramadan and murder disabled Palestinians in their relentless attempt to terrorize the entire population into submission. There is a word, a very ugly one, for this government terrorism. It is called genocide, the ultimate crime against humanity. When will humanity finally put a stop to this mass slaughter of innocents and bring the war criminals, like happened in WWII, to justice?

I think it can be pretty poignantly illustrated this way, one society uses rockets to protect their civilians, the other uses civilians to protect their rockets.

Col. Richard Kemp, former Commander of British Forces in Afghanistan, said: "The use of the civilian population by Hamas is undoubtedly a war crime because not only are they hiding themselves under a civilian population, [but] they are also putting the civilian population at risk. In my view, if there are civilian casualties, the responsibility does not lie with the IDF, but with Hamas, who deliberately placed them there."

The apartheid regime in Israel has used white phosphorus and depleted uranium, along other outlawed weapons, against the defenseless Palestinian in Gaza in previous mass slaughters; this time they experiment on the imprisoned population with dense inert metal explosives, a carcinogenic weapon, having already claimed scores of victims, mostly children. Gaza today resembles more a concentration camp than an open-air prison, and there are still those, blinded by hate, who defend this mass slaughter of innocents. How utterly shameful.

I don't understand why Israel responds in this manner any more. They have the enormously successful Iron Dome strategy so it would seem more effective to simply report out when Palestinians launch rockets and give them a black eye as the party that is trying to kill civilians.

Maybe Israelis don't understand how media relations work.

Outlawed by whom? the US still uses depleted Uranium and White Phosphorus as well as Cluster munitions.

If any country or terrorist group fired over a 1,000 rockets with the express purpose of killing civilians we'd flatten their entire country. Israel is showing remarkable restraint they even warned residents to leave before they started bombing.

Its not the IDF's fault that Hamas hides these rockets in civilian homes, hospitals, and Mosques.

If you put a weapon of war in your holy place don't cry when it gets bombed.
