Gaza bombarded by American munitions

Israel’s catastrophic bombardment on Gaza — the killing and maiming of civilians using American munitions (one of which is called DIME) — Israel refers to as “mowing the grass.”

The killing of three Israeli settler youth, which was known the first day of their abduction because one had called on his cell phone and then three shots were heard, was put under gag order while the Israeli government went on a rampage arresting, demolishing Palestinian homes and whipping Israelis’ into a frenzy, ending when a Palestinian youth was abducted and burned alive.

All of this was used by the Israeli government to try and drive a wedge between the Palestinian unity government of Fata and Hammas. None of this comes out clearly on American news. What comes out loud and clear is the Israeli position. They are the Occupiers. They’ve illegally been occupying Palestinian land for over 40 years and using lethal military force to try and subjugate the corralled Palestinians. Gaza is like the largest open air prison in the world, walled in on all four sides and now being bombed from the sky by tons of American-produced munitions.

Look up DIME and see what it does (produced by our Air Force).
