They were shooting directly at the journalists': New evidence suggests Shireen Abu Akleh was killed in targeted attack by Israeli forces:https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/24/middleea ... index.html
I hope the wave that this has created continues. Its hypocritical to be outraged by what Russia is doing in Ukraine, and justify what Israel is doing in Palestine.
You say that, guess who is being less than cooperative with helping Ukraine? Even to the extent that Germany cannot as it wishes to, supply Ukraine with Spike ER anti armour weapons, since it's an Israeli design built in Germany for their forces, it still needs Israeli permission, with they refuse to give.
And remember the USS Liberty.
And why do you think that is? Israel criticizing Russia invading another country and committing genocide would be as hypocritical as a pigeon criticizing a rat for eating human trash.
My perspective is different, you may find this hard to believe but from the 50's through to the late 70's Israel had a generally good reputation within Western Europe, it was an island of democracy in a sea of despots, progressive socially, again you might find this also hard to fathom but being essentially a social democratic nation then got many in the US worried, you know how hysterical some get and label anything with the world 'social' in it as hardened Communism.
This changed with the rise of Likud, as they became more extreme, appointing the likes of Arial Sharon to government, the 1982 invasion of Lebanon, where the notorious war crimes in refugee camps were carried out by Israeli proxies and probably, with his reputation, Sharon's approval.
In the mid 90's the last Israeli PM to try and make peace, find a solution, was assassinated by an Israeli extremist. I say extremist his views are mainstream now in Likud and all those weirdo extremist parties made up of ultras, the bunch who never serve in the IDF and live off the state making more of the same and 'studying'.
Then the immigration from the former USSR of many extremists too.
I recommended it before, for the 'Israel is always right' mob, a documentary made by veterans of Shin Bet, one of their tier 1 intel services, The Gatekeepers. What they have to say about the direction Israel, the state they worked to protect, has gone and the for their part, stupidity of it, might surprise you.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gatekeepers_(film
