Israel has a stunning record of war crimes. It's no surprise they're pushing so hard to not even be investigated.

Report: Palestinian civilians' deaths go unpunished

Ziv Stahl, director of Yesh Din’s Research Department, commented on the findings: "In practice, the updated statistics show that the likelihood that a soldier who unjustifiably killed a Palestinian civilian will be investigated, let alone penalized, is slight to non-existent. This reality encourages the unlawful use of weapons by soldiers, even in clearly civilian situations such as demonstrations.”

The indictment of soldiers who have killed Palestinians is extremely rare. From 29 September 2000, the beginning of the second Intifada, through 31 March 2011, Israeli security forces in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip have killed at least 3,024 Palestinians who were not taking part in combat. Of that number, 2,821 were killed by the military. Until the MAG Corps policy was changed in April 2011, few investigations were conducted in cases of Palestinians killed by soldiers. A Yesh Din report and B’Tselem data show that, of all such incidents through April 2011, only 14 resulted in indictments.

According to defense officials, the Israel Defense Forces made use of the ‘human shield’ procedure on 1,200 occasions over the last five years,

Israel is finding it harder to deny targeting Gaza infrastructure: With blackouts, food shortages and sewage in the streets, observers say the IDF either targets civilians or has terrible aim

The attacks Human Rights Watch investigated include a missile attack that killed four boys on a Gaza City pier and wounded three others, multiple strikes over several days on a hospital for paralyzed and elderly patients, attacks on an apparent civilian residence and media worker’s car, and four previously documented strikes. In many, if not all, of these cases, Human Rights Watch found no evidence of a military target.

Israeli forces have carried out attacks that have killed hundreds of civilians, using precision weaponry such as drone-fired missiles, as well as munitions such as artillery, which cannot be precisely targeted, on very densely populated residential areas, such as Shuja’iyyeh. They have also directly attacked thousands of homes. Israel appears to consider the homes of people associated with Hamas to be legitimate military targets, a stance that does not conform to international humanitarian law.

Israeli attacks that were the deadliest were carried out with high precision weapons. Israeli F-16 combat aircrafts targeted and destroyed hundreds of Palestinian homes without warning, with full knowledge of the circumstances, killing and injuring people, often while they were sleeping at night. Other victims were sitting in their yard or hanging laundry on their roof. Some children were struck while playing in their room, on the roof of their home or outside near their home. Rescuers and paramedics have been attacked several times while trying to rescue the wounded or recover the bodies of victims. 5 Dozens of civilians have also been killed by less precise weapons, including mortar shells and white phosphorous. Still others, including women and children, were shot at short range while posing no threat to the lives of Israeli soldiers.6

Here are some of the things Israeli's have done. I've compiled some videos showing their brutality. These videos are absolutely raw and have not been tampered with by mainstream media. Remember that the mainstream media has an agenda, and the UK/US are major allies of Israel, they won't talk about what is really going on because it is against their interests (an allies interest).

Also note that I'm a caucasian male living in the United States. I have no reason to be biased except for the hatred of seeing people manipulated into backing genocide. I was deceived into going to Iraq and Afghanistan, now I am making a stand, the media will not fool me again and I'd suggest others do independent research as well.

NSFW (The first few videos are tame, just in case you accidentally clicked on them. most of the rest contain extreme gore, murder, sadness, and violence) - Israelis chanting "There’s no school tomorrow, there’s no children left in Gaza! Oleh!” - Warning: Murder - This is one of the more stomach churning ones, you have been warned. - This is one of the more stomach churning ones, you have been warned. WARNING: This is probably the most disturbing video you'll ever see in your life, I'm not joking.

To give you an idea of the utter destruction going on in Gaza, here's a video of an area of the city being flattened by airstrikes.

This list is far from complete, there are thousands of videos like this, some even worse.

As you can see, the "war" is far more one sided than the media will let you know.

If you live in the U.S., call your state representatives and urge them to stop sending billions in support to Israel every year.
