    First instance I've seen in mainstream media pulling away the veneer to look at what's really going on.

    "Welcome to the Promised Land of Dreadful Optics, where Hamas employs a deliberate strategy of inciting a disproportionate loss of Palestinian life in a bid to garner sympathy and demonize Israel. Hamas knows how to make those numbers work in its favor. By emboldening Gazans to place themselves directly in the line of fire and embedding terrorists among civilians. Hamas baits Israel and then waits for the world's outrage. In this twisted morality play without morals, the March of Return is no peaceful protest. Such a charitable description unfairly demonizes Israel and romanticizes Palestinians."​

    Want a big wad of money for your family? Sacrifice one of them for "the cause."

    The guy writing it is a Jew, so it will likely get labeled "fake news," but at least it got out there.

    Yep, that would be a bullseye. The Palestinians are victims, got it?

    Whenever CNN uses the phrase "A protest turned violent today..." or "Shots were fired at a protest today..." you can bet your sweet bottom dollar it was a riot from the start. A riot started by some group they are sympathetic too.

    LOL!

    Seriously?

    As if Palestinians (after having their country stolen and being subject to genocide) would have to be PAID to protest.

    Perfect user name, Seriously?
    No, of course not, they wouldn't have to be paid to hate Jews, or Israel. muslims are hardwired to hate Jews and Christians, but it's probably a nice kicker to get a bonus for losing a son or daughter.

    Is "Seriously" randoms backup profile? LOL!

    Standard Terrorist Tactic. Hid among the Civilians for cover, and then after the fight, dead "civilians" everywhere for the News Media to suck up on! "Shame on Israel!" reporting. Hamas is really good at it. As everyone should know by now, they just shrug and say "Inshallah!" Total load of crapola. And we will see more of it in the Future, guaranteed.
    Watch "Rules of Engagement"(2000) w/ Samuel L. Jackson. The whole movie revolves around the Terrorists tactic of hiding among Civilians. Great, unsung movie.

    The majority 50 of 60 (unless the figures are inflated like they normally are) were admitted by Hamas to be Hamas terrorists.

    I'm a bit surprised CNN allowed that to be published. Even as "opinion".

    A "protest" is holding signs and marching peacefully. A riot, or invasion attempt is slinging stones, throwing molotov coktails and encouraging children to approach the fence.

    I fully support Israel's response. The optics may look bad to many. The message to those that seek Israel's destruction is clear.

    I'll listen for that.

    Yep, SOP and few are aware. I'll add that movie to my watch list, thanks.

    Wow, I missed that.

    Thanks Brother. I was also surprised. Doubt anyone will cover it with that opinion piece in mind, but we'll see.

    Since Palestine was stolen (and turned into "Israel") by the Zionists in 1948 (with ten years of Christian military support and collusion leading up to the murder and theft) how would it surprise anybody that Muslims hate the Christians and Jews???

    You can't seriously be that dumb? Do you get your "facts" solely from the main stream media? How far back would you like me to go back to prove you wrong?

    Wow, bet Hamas would like to reel in that comment:

    "Salah al-Bardaweel was responding to suggestions from the interviewer that Hamas, the militant group that runs Gaza, was sending other people to die in the protests.
    "In the last round [of demonstrations] 62 people were martyred; 50 of them are from Hamas and 12 from the people," al-Bardaweel replied, adding, "I am telling you, these are official numbers."​

    Seriously show me a map that has ever defined the NATION of Palestine and not a geographic region. UN Zionist? That’s a laugh. The nation of Israel has existed for over 2000 years and, within its current borders, is only about a third if its original size. So who is the REAL aggrieved party here. TROLL!!!!
