Two women have been killed as Israeli troops opened fire on a crowd of women gathered to help besieged gunmen flee a Gaza mosque, witnesses and doctors say.

The Israeli military said the militants escaped by mingling with the women, who were acting as human shields.

The army said it was investigating the reports of deaths and that there had been armed men in the crowd.

Here we go again! For the one thousand plus times, the spoiled children of America- the coward Israeli soldiers, hiding behind their weapons of mass destruction, supplied by U.S. and her abused and misinformed tax-payers, move to do the thing they do best: killing armless women and children in their homeland and in their places of worship. And stupid Americans keep wondering, why they hate us so much?!

The irony in this is that the struggle of the Palestinians is only partly a struggle to liberate the Holy Land from the evil of Zionism. It is also indirectly a struggle to liberate America from the oppressive yoke of Zionism, for the average Palestinian knows that the U.S.A. is another Israeli-occupied territory.

news media talk about israeli soldiers & palestinian gunmen

it’s all right for soldiers to kill women & children but the media shriek whenever gunmen retaliate

our elections will only solidify washington’s blind backing of anything israel does as long as it entails killing or maiming of muslims
