But remember, it's football players kneeling during the anthem that are the REAL disrespect to our troops/veterans .

Unbelievable. That staffer is an idiot.

Oh, that's right, Moonlit!
Thanks for "correcting" me.

Disrespect to our troops smishrespect to our schmroops. Mocking someone with terminal brain cancer is scummy no matter how you look at it. I think it’s disrespectful to him as a civil servant and as a colleague in that man’s field. And as a human being.

Wasn't intending to have my comment link McCain's service to feeling disgusted by the comment made by that staffer.

I meant that despite my major disagreement w him, I honor his service.
The staffer's comment was plain disgusting.

Nah I know you’re both not saying that. I was more just saying that from the perspective that I generally don’t care if someone’s a vet or not unless the disrespect is related to their veteranness.

Just so happens that this wasn’t quite disrespectful, but rather incredibly tactless and disgusting of a way to treat anyone, period. In fact, I wouldn’t even think it was that big of a deal if McCain wasn’t actually ill and instead just old... it’s tasteless in that case, but this is just “wow.” McCain didn’t even say anything other than expressing he doesn’t want a man who has repeatedly personally insulted him in recent times to not be at his impending funeral.

100%. it's wishing death on a political opponent. not a good look for a "democratic" administration.

I'd never expect this type of behavior from the Trump administration. They usually handle themselves with such class.

Well at least we have stable leaders in place to make sure nothing escalates.

Israel has portrayed the movement as a terrorist ploy by Hamas, pointing out attempts to damage and breach the fence. The army said it had almost doubled the number of troops surrounding Gaza and in the occupied West Bank on Monday.

“The rioters are hurling firebombs and explosive devices towards the security fence and IDF forces, and are burning tires, throwing rocks and launching flaming objects in order to ignite fires in Israeli territory and harm IDF troops,” the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.

Israel’s military said its troops had killed three “terrorists” attempting to place an explosive device adjacent to the fence in the southern area of the strip “under the cover of violent riots”.

It said a fighter jet had also struck five “terrorist targets” in what it described as a Hamas military training facility in Gaza. It added that the strike was “in response to the violent acts of the last few hours being carried out by Hamas along the security fence.”

Naftali Bennett, Israel’s education minister, told Israel Radio that anyone who approached the fence would be considered a terrorist. A foreign ministry spokesman labelled protesters “murderous rioters”.

No Israeli has been harmed since the protests began on 30 March.

imagine the reaction if iran machine gunned thousands of unarmed protestors down today. there'd already be cruise missiles in the air.

"hypocrites" is far too kind a word for these monsters.

Fucking Netanyahu & right-wing Israelis!

But please remember that there ARE Progressive Jews in America and Israel who are against this kind of violence from the IDF and right-wing policies!


I'm not Jewish but have known progressive Jews and rabbis.
Look up "J" Street the progressive Jewish Lobbying group. I know they are sickened by this! It's that right-wing Jews get the most attention here in the media!

Progressive Jews support 2 State solution many w East Jeruselam being the Palistine Capital, hate the expansion of the Settlements. And promote friendship w the Palistanians.

i wonder how much overlap there is between the people who said about syrian refugees that "they should stay and fight for their country if it's so bad there" and those who are saying today about the palestinians that "they deserved to be shot for being near that fence and they should have stayed home and shut up if they didn't want to die".
