Tell the Congressional Progressive Caucus they have an obligation to speak out against Israel’s massacre of peaceful protesters in Gaza. Too many deaths have occurred already. Everyone should have the right to peacefully protest without being shot and killed.

    “They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one’s country.
    But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your dying.
    You will die like a dog for no good reason.”

    I am embarrased to be an American whose leaders allow this genocide and violence to continue, especially since we give so much financial support to Israel. Unacceptable human rights abuses that are ao blatent and the world is watching and sees our complicity. I am especially embarrased about our use of the veto at the UN. What a circus we have turned that governing body into. It is a joke on us. We are Israel’s puppet. It is time to stand up and take back America and regain our morality and human rights stance.

    “Though violence is not lawful, when it is offered in self-defence or for the defence of the defenceless, it is an act of bravery far better than cowardly submission. The latter befits neither man nor woman. Under violence, there are many stages and varieties of bravery. Every man must judge this for himself. No other person can or has the right.”

    “My main aim in ‘Gandhi’ was to project him as the vanguard of non-violence.
    Nowhere in the world has a movement of non-cooperation sans violence received so much support from masses as Gandhi’s movement in India did. He was, to a great extent, responsible for freeing his nation from the British Raj\”

    Terrible stuff, as heard on Scahill’s INtercepted podcast for the week of April 2nd to Apr. 6th here. How could such disproportionate violence of snipers literally firing at vastly mostly peaceful folks in a pit and not even threatening the stupid fence be allowed, but we have the war criminal Netanyahu, whom even the Dems won’t call to the carpet here. This reminds me of the horrible scene in Gandhi where you had the Indian/British army firing at totally unarmed protesters as they fell into the bloody well in the center of the arena. Why do we have to go to lesser known alternate media like the Intercept or DN to even hear these reports?? Nothing nothing nothing in the lamestream media, which is the vast majority of the US media, disgusting!

    totally disgusting that they opened live snipers on folks not even close to the fence, or a few bad apples merely throwing rocks…what a war criminal Netanyahu has been in Gaza, but continues to be in an open air prison of 2 million people inside of only 140 square miles. The Dems incl. Bernie are way too lukewarm on what the murderous state of Israel has done o’er the years. This issue of Gaza needs to be front and center along with the crimes the Saudis have perpetrated on the Yemenis.

    not surprising, but disgusting that most of the media report the event in Gaza as “violence”, implying coming from both sides! – instead of the murder of innocent protesters. Visual images of the brutality of police on the Pettis bridge in the 60’s, created a national reaction and a change, and recently 17 killed in Parkland Florida sparked a new movement, but 17 ,( now 19) Palestinians murdered is just general “violence”. The American mind certainly has been hacked, hoodwinked into support of anything Israel, and hopefully the images and stories of those recently killed can be utilized widely, visually to help generate more outrage at the ongoing murder of Palestinians and the methodical stealing of their land. Murder is murder, by a state, or a single policeman. I suppose those 10 Democrats who voted to continue killing and starving children in Yemen are dead silent about Israel’s reactions. They must be shamed, and taken out of office..

    Deeply immoral, How can Israel call itself a civilised country? Thousands of Gazans killed in 2008/9 and 2014 in attacks on Gaza from which it has never recovered. Ah but wicked Hamas must be taught a lesson.

    They’ve no such excuse killing 18 innocent demonstrators, the present government and the IDF are disgusting. Lets make this known everywhere in USA and throughout the world. They stink in the nostrils of decent men.

    It’s a big problem when an antagonist is more than willing to exterminate the oppressed long before any version of understanding is realized. I believe that there are several murderous regimes in the last few centuries that fit that bill. The Turks and the Armenians, the Serbs and the Bosniaks. the Hutus and the Tutsis, the Congolese and the Congolese, the Nazis and the Jews, Roma, Bohemians, gays and others, and now Israel and the Palestinians. There are many other examples but rarely have any done what Israel is doing and has done with the naked propaganda and in full view of the world, with not only no excuses but completely fabricated fake realities.

    The U.S. vetoed a plan at the United Nations to ivestigate Israel’s crime against humanity by using live amunition on peaceful protesters. The U.S. funds the U.N but has far too much power there. They did the same thing when 100 and some countries came out against Israel’s capitol being in Jerusalem
