Tonight in Ramallah. July 24, 2014
Israeli occupation forces are using lethal and internationally banned weapons in their aggressive war against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, experts and witnesses said this morning.
Israeli warplanes fired white phosphorus munition in the eastern Gaza Strip. White phosphorus burns fiercely and can set cloth, fuel, ammunition and other materials on fire, and cause serious burns or death. It was heavily used by Israel during its savage war on Gaza in 2008/2009, and caused many severe casualties.
Meanwhile, witnesses said that the Israeli occupation used flechette bombs on Saturday in the Shujaya neighbourhood causing the death of 100 civilians in the bloodiest day Gaza has witnessed so far.
Doctors saw bodies with nail shrapnel, and removed them from the wounds of those who came into hospital. While, several people and journalists collected nails from bomb sites and posted their photos on Facebook.
In the early days of the Israeli war, Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert told a press conference in Al-Shifa Hospital that he found effects of DIME weapons on the bodies of the Palestinian casualties.
"A good number of the injuries seen here are consistent with the use of dense inert metal explosives, or DIME, that we saw during the 2009 attack and also in 2006," said Gilbert.
He continued: “The bodies are pretty much destroyed by the enormous energy released by the explosives that are shot near them or at them.”
Illegal weapons supplied by $8.5 million daily aid from the US to Israel.

White couples that adopt non-white kids
If you’re getting mad at someone for adopting a parentless child and bringing that child into a loving home because…
all these ladies are fabulous. i wish they looked happier. they all look sad, as if they buy into the lie that they’re not beautiful.
Nah I just want to draw people who are more than a forced smile. I want to draw people who are standing solid and taking up space; and anyway, “happiness” can be felt and conveyed via so much more than lips and teeth. I resent being the fat jolly lady sometimes, and moreover, it’s my drawing. You can draw your own people if you want to see them smiling.
beauty is a social construct anyway. maybe they don’t want to be beautiful.
Maybe they are about to charge at some abusive privileged men and rip their fuckin throats out. Love this.
here’s a dating tip
if your partner suffers social anxiety or is an introvert, do not force them to go out on a date or hang out with you. more than likely, being alone relaxes their anxiety and recharges their energy. so respect that. and don’t bug them about it or take it personally. you’ll make their anxiety worse or just end up making them feel guilty as shit.
this goes for friends too. don’t do that to your friends.Someone finally said it
An orthodox Jewish rally took place in Foley Square in New York City today to denounce the Israeli military & its latest efforts to draft orthodox Jewish men into the Israeli Defense Forces.
“The evil rulers in the Holy Land want to incite and seduce young men and teenagers to acquiesce to idol worship and to participate in the impure army,” reads one poster, a digital copy of which was obtained and translated by the Forward. Yiddish language posters not only denounced the new draft policy, but the Israeli government & the military itself.
When CBC News told me about the 1,200 aboriginal women currently missing in Canada, I was SHOCKED. That is such an alarming number and this needs to be addressed.

“Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in.”
