The Rogue Genocidal Apartheid State Of Israel. Another Of Many Examples:


Jenin won’t forget Israel’s massacre EI 18 Apr by Ilan Pappe — Fifteen years ago this month the Israeli army bombarded and assaulted the Jenin refugee camp for more than 10 days. This was part of Israel’s so-called Operation Defensive Shield, during which it sent troops into the heart of six major cities in the occupied West Bank and surrounding towns and refugee camps that were ostensibly under Palestinian Authority control.
