thanks for the link. I'm not surprised

the way these things seem to have gone in my lifetime is some suicide bomber blows up a restaurant/club etc. often killing and maiming dozens of civilians including children...some pretty horrific stuff.

then the IDF levels blocks and blocks of residential areas that probably had some bad guys in at least a couple of those buildings..but also hundreds of civilians including children.

wash and repeat

however, what just happened and is still unfolding is quite different. according to the very informative link you shared I believe just over three hundred Israeli civilians were killed by Palestinian (or other) terrorists from 2008 - 2023 (compared to a staggering 6,000 on the Palestinian side.

Now let this sink in - Hamas has killed twice as many Israeli civilians in the last 48 hours than they, Hezbollah and anyone else combined did over the last 15 years, not to mention the hostages they have now taken and are threatening to execute tit for tat with Palestinian civilians killed by the IDF.

Hamas has guaranteed a brutal response from the despicable Netenyahu, and it will rally Israelis around him. But even without Bibi any Israeli government's raison d'être would be to eliminate Hamas root and branch. And many many innocent people will die.

Trump's fascist will to power

Donald Trump will defy judges and anyone who stands in his way. He knows that the two most likely paths his life will soon take are prison for life or dictator for life. So he will do exactly what his psychotic instincts tell him to do and his followers will love it. Unless one of these judges is willing to lock him up for defying them he will have overcome American democracy through sheer force of will...as dictators do. Someone needs to show some guts and enforce the law or there will be no law, only the madman's will.
