The Israeli Army has deployed over 100 snipers, as well as substantial other military forces to the border with the Gaza Strip, ahead of a massive Land Day protest among the Gazans on Friday. The protest is expecting 100,000 demonstrators.
Israel is expecting to kill protesters, as the standing orders are to shoot any Palestinians who try to cross the border, even if it means killing unarmed protesters. So even though nothing has happened, Israeli officials are trying to get out in front of the issue of shifting the blame.
Israeli diplomats are making the rounds worldwide, saying the Palestinian protest is a “dangerous provocation.” Despite Israel being very clear they intend to respond violently to the peaceful protest, they are also insisting anyone killed will be Hamas’ fault.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry’s English-language talking points dub the demonstration a “Hamas-led Confrontation Campaign,” saying Hamas is paying people to participate with an end goal of destroying Israel.

Incredible – even if the Palestinians are perfectly nonviolent, official Israeli policy is to kill those protesters, and blame Palestinian leaders for those deaths. Such an utterly illegitimate position, which will further delegitimize Israel in worldwide opinion. Do they have any capacity to understand how arrogant that is and sounds?!
So where is the outrage from Trump and co at protestors being killed. For the whole of Iran recently during their protests there were far fewer killed yet that caused huge “indignation” from Trump. Here the killing has been planned by Israel. Its absolutely disgusting, illegal and a huge blot on all Israeli’s and all Jews who stay silent.
what would happen if a 100, thousand democratic protestors stormed the white house jumped the fences to remove Trump ?
