Israel Steps On Its Crank, Again

Some of Israel’s closest allies on Tuesday condemned the deaths of seven aid workers who were killed by airstrikes in Gaza — a loss that prompted multiple charities to suspend food deliveries to Palestinians on the brink of starvation.

The deaths of the World Central Kitchen workers threatened to set back efforts by the U.S. and other countries to open a maritime corridor for aid from Cyprus to help ease the desperate conditions in northern Gaza.

World Central Kitchen said it had coordinated with the Israeli military over the movement of its cars. Three vehicles moving at large distances apart were hit in succession. They were left incinerated and mangled, indicating multiple targeted strikes

I get the fog of war, but damn! That's some Russian-grade murderous bullshit.

Hamas's strategy in this war has been to use their people as human shields and dare the Israelis to come after them. Israel took them up on that. The blowback has been fierce and predictable.

A repeat of the Liberty incident?

We need to capture the leaders of Hamas
We need to capture Netanyahu and his closest wingnut allies
We need to put all of them in the same jail cell
And tell them to get their own hands dirty and stop killing each others' civilians

Eck, I grew up in a Navy household.
My dad was with the Mediterranean fleet when the Liberty Incident happened.
Oh yeah, that got mentioned A LOT at the dinner table whenever Israel's scraps with Lebanon, Syria, or Iraq came up.
Dad had no problem with the Israeli people, but he sure as hell had some harsh words for Israel's government.
