What a terrible place to do such a thing. I guess Ghanans want closeted gay men to marry their daughters.

So all of this is because the president of the organization is a Marxist lesbian? Does this mean we can start banning right wing organizations for having literal fascists at the helm?

It's sad that the pro Palestine left doesn't understand what genocide is, seems like they're on a mission to make the term meaningless, making its misuse their call to action.

Russia's plans are no secret, Putin has been working from this playbook.

Belarus and Moldova are to become part of Russia, not independent.

I expect that this change will not reduce overdose rates, but it will fill prisons and give police an excuse to go after drug users they don't like.

This judgment has far more frightening implications, if the president is above the law.

Seattle is the least-religious large metro area in the U.S. (www.seattletimes.com)

A clear majority of adults in the Seattle area — around 64% — never attend church or religious services, or go less than once a year. That pencils out to about 1.98 million people out of the total 3.1 million population aged 18 and older in our metro area, which includes King, Pierce and Snohomish counties....

And if it were true, it would be independently invented the same way in multiple places that were never in contact, rather than the hodgepodge of overlapping and contradictory claims we see today.

Who could have predicted a man famous for lying, throwing people under the bus, cheating others, and breaking contracts would lie to them, throw them under the bus, cheat them, and break their contract? This would be hilarious if the man they were promoting wasn't so dangerous.

Because I disagree with you the only possible explanation is that I don't think critically? Piss off.

I said it was from a biased source, not that it was wrong, but if you want to see an example of why it's bad compare the death count in the CNN report vs. this one. It's not "thousands" gunned down, even according to Hamas:

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza said 104 were killed and more than 700 injured in the incident, one of the deadliest since the war in Gaza began.

It also includes IDF statements which paint a very different picture of events:

In an initial account, Israel said Gaza residents surrounded the aid trucks and looted the supplies. “During the incident, dozens of Gazans were injured as a result of pushing and trampling,” the Israel Defense Forces told CNN.
An Israeli military spokesperson later said in a briefing that there were two separate incidents involving aid trucks.
First, he says trucks went to the north and were swarmed by crowds, with trucks running over people. Subsequently, he says, a group of Palestinians approached Israeli forces, who then opened fire on the Palestinians.
“The truckloads went into the north, then there was the stampede, and then afterwards, there was the event against our forces. That’s how things transpired this morning,” the spokesman said.

I don't believe anything offhand from such a source, especially on matters regarding Israel, nor should you. Stick to credible organizations if you prefer objective reporting to emotionally charged propaganda.

Smallpox did most of the genociding, killed ~90% of Native Americans. It would have been a much different situation and outcome if colonists arrived and the Americas were not depopulated from pandemic. I often wonder what that world would be like.

Don't you think articles should include statements from both relevant parties?

DarkGamer,

Although that may be true, a shooting by defense forces at a chaotic scene of looting is certainly more understandable and less egregious than opening fire on innocent people orderly lining up. This article distorts the fundamental facts of what happened. It's clear they want to make Israel look as villainous as possible, objectivity be damned.

You're ignoring that first part, without which every military action would qualify under that statute:

with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group,

Israel's started intent is to destroy Hamas, which is none of those protected groups.

Plausible does not mean probable. The ICJ didn't order a cease fire, which would be odd if this was in fact a genocide.

DarkGamer,

Yes, it's clear you've made up your mind, good thing you're not a judge on the IJC misinterpreting the law.

I would say the most important thing Israel has to do is defeat Hamas, which means either destroying them or getting them to surrender, while not breaking the law. They have a responsibility to protect their own people and to honor their treaties. They're letting in 100 humanitarian aid trucks a day into Gaza on average, each one has to be searched, protesters are blocking many of them, and many humanitarian aid organizations have decided it is too dangerous to send trucks, if that is not legally sufficient they need to let in more.

Good day.

That was almost 40 years ago, it's doubtful the same people still work at the FBI. A lot of historically bad things happened at that organization under J. Edgar Hoover, but I wouldn't judge the modern FBI on that either.
