List of op-eds calling for the elimination of Gaza

This list includes only those editorials published since Israel commenced its 2014 operation against the Gaza Strip on July 8. We have been made aware of many others that were published before then and we are working on publishing another list with those editorials and articles included.

    Is the agenda of this site to mislead? This page is an excellent example of what I’d call “cherry-picking.” If you’re looking for “evidence” of Israeli criminal intent, then look no further: this site has cherry-picked the articles that will solidify every one of your pre-ordained preconceptions about Israeli bloodthirst.

    Except that the truth is available for all to see…if they care to look. As most sane people know, you don’t get stadiums filled with Israelis screaming for Arab blood, nor do Israeli Arabs cower in the streets, in fear of racist Israeli mobs. In Israel today, it is the visible Jew who fears wandering in to an Arab village, not the other way around.

    And hey, let’s face it – 1,800 dead on the other side (with a significant proportion being combatants), in the context of a sustained rocket barrage on your cities, makes for a comparatively paltry “genocidal” response. But I suppose if you’re on the left, and you have a less than honorable agenda, you can always manufacture a “genocide” in Gaza by simply repeating the word “genocide”, while taking great care to lie about the general intent of most Israelis.

      Funny you mention stadiums filled with Israelis screaming for Arab blood. You should really look into an Israeli football club team called Beitar Jerusalem whose fans boo their team’s Palestinian or Muslim players, who are widely reported — along with Macabbi Tel Aviv — for their racist antics, and who have rioted against and physically beaten people of Palestinian descent.
