A reporter that daily at the State Department briefing goes after Israel with very little pushback from Miller.

Said Arikat (a Palestinian journalist and the Washington bureau chief for Jerusalem-based newspaper Al-Quds)

I found this is a really old issue but gets me boiling daily.

Meh. Hamas got 13% VS Biden’s 81%. And that’s Michigan.
How large was Biden margin there?

Safe margin was considered between 10-15%. Analysts speculated that anything over 15% and he'd have to mildly tweak the rhetoric, but no real policy. The 13% is widely seen as not enough to move the needle on either rhetoric or policy.

ETA: these were primary numbers with no clear challenger. In a challenger emerges or a legitimate 3rd party candidate gains steam, everything changes.

Not a massive difference from 2012:






2008 was a protest for Obama:
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

He won MI over Trump by a margin of 150,000 votes with 2.8m. If 5.5% of his voters there sit this one out he loses to Trump.

Which I don’t think they’d do. As upset as they might be at Biden they DESPISE Trump & would never risk it.

Can this thread be only Israel-Hamas stuff?
Thank you!

@Mods can you move the past bunch of posts to elections or something?

Sky News has left up the false and retracted statement from Lloyd Austin and it has been viewed over 2 million times. They issued a correction underneath, but that has only been viewed 26K times.

You can vote the proposed community note helpful here to get the message out to the millions of viewers that it was a misstatement.

Another Hamas fabrication today that all the media lapped right up. No shame and lessons learned from the made up 500 dead hospital story.

{Edited to avoid getting flagged by filters}

Some of the truly insane things I’ve heard from friends and family who are fighting in the depths of Gaza.

I was told that a friend had been to three Hamas bases. I asked him what he means by a base? Like a building they call a base?

Nope. He said Hamas has full army bases equipped with everything a normal base has including obstacle courses, shooting ranges, and more. They’re all over Gaza.

I was also told that they could not walk three feet without seeing a tunnel opening. Gaza is absolutely covered with tunnel holes. I was told that Gaza is literally duplicated under ground.

I was told that every single house, EVERY one, had weapons hidden somewhere. They didn’t enter a single house without some weapons somewhere.

I was told that none of the Hamas terrorists wear uniforms. They are all dressed in civilian clothes so when they’re killed, Hamas can claim they were innocent.

I was told that we have no idea to what extent they use human shields. Hamas terrorists open fire on IDF soldiers with one hand, while holding an elderly lady with the other. This is their most popular tactic.

I was told that they have not met a single innocent civilian there and every single person, even those who pretend they’re innocent in the beginning, are somehow connected to Hamas. Everyone there supports Hamas.

I was told that there are days in which the IDF eliminates hundreds of terrorists. 

I was told that it is widely known that if (when) Israel enters Rafah, it’s all over for Hamas. Everyone knows that hundreds, maybe thousands of them are hiding in Rafah hoping the world manages to stop the IDF from going in there. They’re banking on that.

I was told they keep finding books, from children books to text books, describing the history of the Jews, and general information about Jews explaining why they should be killed.

I was told that when an IDF soldier is killed, everyone there celebrates. Somehow they all know about it within minutes and firecrackers are their main method of celebration. Firecrackers and firing guns into the air. And of course, candies. They love giving out candies when a Jew is murdered.

I was told that Hamas terrorists in Gaza are like athletes or movie stars in other places. They are absolute heroes to the Palestinian people who have pictures of them on their walls and describe them as total rockstars.

And finally, the doozy. I was told that on every single computer they find in people’s homes in Gaza, there is p**n everywhere. Every single computer has p**n on it. But get this, in addition to p**n, every single house has s** artifacts all over the place. S** toys, s**y outfits, and more. All over the place.

All in all, seems like a solid society they’ve built over there in Gaza…

Israel is dealing with some seriously twisted and morally depraved human beings who are told from age zero that Jews are nothing more than animals that deserve to be killed wherever they are.

This society is rotten to the core and needs to be denazified from the ground up. Anything else will just be a bandaid on a society that needs open heart surgery.
