• Increasing the permitted fishing zone to 10 kilometers.

• Internationalizing the Rafah Crossing and placing it under the supervision of the U.N. and some Arab nations.

• International forces on the borders.

• Easing conditions for permits to pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque.

• Prohibition on Israeli interference in the reconciliation agreement.

• Re-establishing an industrial zone and improvements in further economic development in the Gaza Strip.

It’s funny how truces put forward by Hamas are declined and largely ignored by MSM but the moment Hamas reject any farcical truces agreed to by Israel (which keep the inhumane blockade on Gaza intact, for example) it’s front page news and you’ll never hear the end of it. ‘HAMAS REJECTED THE TRUCE HAMAS DOESN’T WANT PEACE’. 

The conditions of that truce are AMAZING though. I want all these things for Gaza.

To the guy who said “the white man is oppressed now more than ever”

"

White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”

I will never understand why.

Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.

Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.

Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.

If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.

Indiana: Martin Luther King  Jr. bridge defaced with racist messages
For the second time in as many weeks and just a few days after the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge in Fort Wayne has been vandalized.
This time, the vandalism came in the form of racist writings on benches.
The tirades, which were found Sunday and appeared to be written in black marker on the white slats of the benches, were directed at interracial relationships.
Frank Suarez, a spokesman for the city, said it’s upsetting to see someone deface an asset to the city such as the bridge.
“Fort Wayne residents embrace and take pride in our landmarks,” he said.
The writing specifically targets the relationships of Black men with white women.
“White women do not need to mix … keep the white race pure,” begins the passage on one bench.
On the other affected bench the writings call for the death of interracial couples and again makes a claim to “keep the white race pure.”
One bench calls for people to remember Joseph Paul Franklin, a killer who spouted white supremacist views and was recently executed for the deaths of more than 20 people.
In statements to national media before his execution, he said his objective was to start a race war.
Targeting interracial couples was one focus, if not the main focus, of his killing spree during the late 1970s.
One of his intended victims was civil rights leader Vernon Jordan, who survived being shot by Franklin in Fort Wayne in 1980 outside Jordan’s hotel.
The writings on the benches found Sunday are the second time in two weeks vandalism has occurred on the bridge.
In the previous act in June, a smiley face was found painted on one of the plaques with King’s face on it at the end of the bridge, according to police and images posted to local media websites.
It was cleaned the same day.

White supremacists, fuck all y’all.
Here’s what I think about what y’all did.

White supremacists, fuck all y’all.

Here’s what I think about what y’all did.

"By Friday morning, 100 Palestinians had died as a result of Israeli military action, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry, with hundreds more wounded. To date, there have been zero reports of Israeli deaths due to Palestinian rocket fire, though Magen David Adom, Israel’s national emergency medical service, said Wednesday that 123 people had been treated – 80 percent of them for shock or anxiety – since the start of the operation.

These are not surprising figures. During 2012’s Operation Pillar of Defense, 167 Palestinians were killed by the Israeli military, according to human rights group B’Tselem, who said that less than half of that number were believed to be taking part in hostilities. The same report said six Israelis had died: Four civilians and two members of the Israeli security forces. In the 2008-2009 Gaza War, the pattern was also evident. According to numbers released by the Israeli Defense Force, 1,166 Palestinians died during that conflict, 709 of which the IDF said were “Hamas terror operatives.” Thirteen Israelis died, three of whom were non-combatants."

Back in 2013, Texas resident Larry Davis ran either a red light or stop sign (reports vary) in his Buick in the city of Austin. Despite his insistence that he had had only one drink, he was put in handcuffs and arrested for driving while intoxicated. Then, when he was given a Breathalyzer test by the Austin Police Department, he blew a 0.00. Nonetheless, as KVUE reports, Mr. Davis spent the night in jail.

While at the station, Mr. Davis agreed to give a blood sample as well, to prove he was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol. The results would later come back 100% negative. Davis’ attorney, Daniel Betts, told KVUE, “My reaction was just shock that this happened.”

The Austin Police Department stands by the arrest, saying they believed Davis showed signs of impairment, that while standing on one leg, he “swayed,” and “needed his arms for balance.” They also suggested that he could have been on marijuana, a drug that wouldn’t necessarily show up in a test. The APD said they’re going by a “take-no-chances” policy. That being said, they did acknowledge how unusual it is that Davis was arrested despite registering a zero on his breath test.
