US Condemns Israel for Bombing Terrorists near School

“I think the United States has been terrific” – Netanyahu. “I have been very clear…that Israel has a right to defend itself.” – Obama.

The U.S. State Dept. said Sunday it was “appalled” by an Israeli Air Force raid on terrorists near a school run by UNRWA and that Israel must “do more to meet its own standards and avoid civilian casualties.”

Hamas sources, which for some reason remain unquestioned by foreign and even Israeli media,  reported that 10 people were killed in the targeted strike on motorcycle terrorists near the school that was used to shelter approximately 3,000 Gazans.

“The IDF targeted three…Islamic Jihad…terrorists on board a motorcycle in the vicinity of an UNRWA school in Rafah,” the IDF announced.

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was “outraged” at the attack on terrorists in a civilian area, as if there is a non-civilian area in Gaza where terrorists are located, called for those responsible for the “gross violation of international humanitarian law” to be held accountable. “This madness must stop,” he said , according to a spokesperson.

The harsh comments from Washington came one day after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu slobbered praise all over President Barack Obama and  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for their statements “regarding Israel’s right to defend itself against rockets and tunnels.”

The Geneva Convention clearly states in Article 51(7) of the 1977 Additional Protocol I, “The presence or movements of the civilian population or individual civilians shall not be used to render certain points or areas immune from military operations, in particular in attempts to shield military objectives from attacks or to shield, favor or impede military operations.”

U.S. State Dept. spokeswoman Jen Psaki, who says what she is told to say, stated Sunday, “The suspicion that militants are operating nearby does not justify strikes that put at risk the lives of so many innocent civilians.”

    School is out, the children should be away from the buildings, and now they are used for rockets, and even if the schools were filled with children, Hamas would store rockets and launch them for the area.

  65. Liz Smith says:

    Israel gave “effective advanced warnings” (Article 57 (2) (C) of Geneva Convention) to Palestinians so they could leave the area, Hamas told them to stay. Israel did all they could, without any other counties intervention to get the innocent out. Unfortunately many choose to use their own as human shields for picture purposes to make Israel, whomever they are fighting, to look bad,

  66. Liz Smith says:

    “country’s’”

  73. Liz Smith says:

    That’s the muslim agenda, to make everyone, everywhere serve allah. They are here in America waiting for their orders, trying to change our freedoms. People need to get their blinders off, and wake up. Have you not heard PM speeches? Other countries are next.

  74. The US condemns Israel but not Iraq or Syria ,Sudan etc .for butchering Christians ? Barak Hussein Obama and his Terrorist Regime is responsible for all the Terrorism in Israel and the Middle East because Barak Hussein Obama and his Regime is giving his Terrorists regimes the money at the tune of billions of dollars and weapons ,cement ,missiles ,hand granades etc .

  81. David Grim says:

  82. Tell Hamas to stop firing rockets from schools & hospitals and maybe Israel won’t fire near schools… strike where the fire comes from…

  83. Israel should continue to flatten Hamas

  84. What would any other country do to those Islamic Nazi A-holes.?? Who is innocent there Darrin, you are a Muslim loving Anti-Semite who is bias and wants future terrorists. Less future terrorists because very few who are Muslim are innocent in Gaza and elsewhere.!!!

  85. Roy A Bois says:

    Israel is right and the UN is wrong.

  86. Islam is as false as it gets and is a Nazi death cult, look who’s talking before you blame.!!!???

  87. Steve Smith says:

    That is your opinion….not everyone’s

  88. We have a saying for you Mark Boulle, never assume for it does make an ass out of you!!

  89. It’s not US, it’s Obama the one who condemns Israel. Obama is not America. PERIOD.

  90. Israel has the right to defend their people.

  91. It is just unacceptable the way the US Administration acts toward Israel. I will not stop speaking out until this bad behavior stops, or Obama gets impeached. I voted for him & I strongly regret it. He lies to our strongest ally in the middle east, (which is Israel), & to the American people. He appears to align himself with the groups that want to destroy Israel. I had never spoken out so openly against my President before this conflict, but I must continue to do so, because this behavior cannot be tolerated, it is just wrong!

  92. Gwenda Oates says:

    I hope Israel blows them off the map. Innocents do not teach children to kill.

  96. Yes, they are so brave, they hide out in or near schools, in or near hospitals, in or near mosques.

  97. ISRAEL has a right to defend itself, that is, the State of Israel and the People of Israel or it will not exist…as is the state of war at this time…

  98. Mike Stewart says:

    Israel belongs to the Jewish people, the Palestinians have no claim on that land. Sorry it belongs to God’s people.

  99. I condemn Obama for being a crowed and a Closet Muslim

  100. Dana Welch says:

    Glenn, you are either in the Democrat, Liberal, Progressive, RINO and Socialist cabal or your a Communist. You’re an anti-Semite. You’re part of the ‘Hate America First’ crowd. Tell us where you live. You’re an infidel. You don’t think Hamas wouldn’t hesitate to drop 3k rockets on you? You voted for The Half-white Muslim Knight, twice. In the last election, THwMK won by lying and lawlessness appealing particularly to stupid people (Low Information Voter, LIV) and sycophants. Obviously, your IQ hovers around 1 over plant.

  101. Kathy Kupfer says:

    U N. Equals terrorist hide out.

  102. Why Nena says:

    God fight for Israel…

  103. America does not condemn you. Obama dies. He does NOT represent America!

  104. The Muslims call every death holocaust. Israel is in war with terrorists like Mashal who said in interview to CNN that every Palestinian death is a victory for Hamas. These Arabs did not said a word about 1700 Palestinians killed in Syria. They are all anti Jews, antisemite and racists.

  105. Yes 1700 palestinians .kikled in Syria and no be bitches ..

  106. Keep up the great work of demolishing the Hamas devils.

  107. Netanyahu did the right thing..Obama can cry all night about it but who cares.

  108. Sue Waller says:

    I stand with Israel.

  109. Most of the citizens support you Israel. Do not listen to the fools some people elected we don’t.

  110. Obama did say in his press conference , ” Israel has a right to defend itself from rocket attacks from Hamas.
    I stand With Israel!

  111. Sebastian Ng says:

    Is the US state dept saying, despite the fact (they call it suspicion) the terrorists are shooting rockets from the school, Israel is to stand down and just let them fire which may possibly kill them, just to comply with the Geneva Convention?

    “Here! Just shoot me! I would like to defend myself, but I can’t because you have been so clever to hide behind women and children, and according to Geneva Convention Article whatever, I have no right to fire back to defend myself”

    Mr US State dept! Is there what you are stating?

    And to the UN Secretary, with due respect, YOU ARE NOT THE ONE BEING ATTACK HERE! So what are you taking about?
