With scores dead and thousands wounded in the deadliest Israeli crackdown on Gaza since 2014, officials in the far-right coalition government are issuing statements on the deaths. These statements read less like damage control than a combination of ambivalence about those killed and eagerness at the prospect of more deaths to come.
Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan repeatedly referred to the protesters killed in Gaza as “Nazis,” saying that there were no demonstrations, just “Nazi anger.” He later added that the number killed doesn’t mean anything because they’re just Nazis anyhow.
Likud MP Avi Dichter, the chair of the defense committee, went on to dismiss concerns in an interview of his own. Dichter insisted that protests in Gaza pose no danger, because “the IDF has enough bullets for anyone,” and open-fire regulations to shoot people allowing the military to deal with it.

"Enough bullets for everyone"? Sounds like Turkish President Erdoğan is right - this IS a genocide.
I say we're past the point of BDS. The world should invade the region and disarm everyone in the Middle East.
Yeah, I know ... the Christian evangelists in the US won't like that idea. But where in the New Testament is any justification for what Israel is doing? And how do we really know what G-d wants?
I believe that if you are killing someone, you are NOT doing anything G-d wants you to do. You're following the doctrines of men, or even worse ... the will of Satan.
