🎥 The latest images from the Aqsa compound in Jerusalem. The confrontation comes at the most sensitive moment with the Israel-Hamas ceasefire in #Gaza just 13hrs old. It’s holding for now but a Hamas condition (🇮🇱 said there were no conditions) was an end to ‘Israeli aggression’ pic.twitter.com/WE3t161pO6

Israel attacking Palestinians just hours after the ceasefire shows this was never about defense but about domination.

It's almost as if Benjamin Netanyahu is not sincere in seeking peace

Well, in answer to the David Osland tweet, it has been reported that Netanyahu is the big political winner of the conflict – meaning, I gather, that his premiership in Israel is now more secure than it was two weeks ago.
As for whether it’s about domination, hasn’t it always been about that? Israel’s Likud government is all about wiping Palestine from the maps, forever. It is entirely unconcerned about the lives of any Palestinians that might be extinguished in that process.
At least now we are seeing who is siding with the bad guys…

… and who are siding with the victims:
South Africa. Durban. Dockworkers refuse to unload Israeli ship in solidarity with Palestinians.

It had to be South Africa, didn’t it? The previous home of apartheid.
