Oh it’s very sad but unintentional to hit aid workers.

Should prevent Erdogan from taking the country further towards authoritarianism, as he won't be able to mess around with the constitution if there's a parliament with a majority opposition.

Since he wasn't able to do anything about the inflation, this felt sort of predictable.

Means it could be his last term. But I doubt it'll lead to any immediate shifts in policy.

I know that 'unintentional' was tongue-in-cheek, but it just can't be overstated how evil this was, as famine looms.



Other aid orgs are deciding to suspend operations as well. On top of Israel's effective stranglehold on UNRWA and the absolute (and ongoing) obliteration of hospitals. The individual atrocities that happened in Al Shifa are one thing and I won't get into it here, but big picture: does any of this look like something Israel would be doing if it intended Palestinians to return to / exist in Gaza?

They came with white hands and left with red hands.

It looks like Biden finally put on his big boy pants and gave Netanyahu some ultimatums. More aid about to go into Gaza and The IDF soldiers responsible for killing the aid workers have been “fired”. Too little too late unfortunately. We need to stop sending Israel weapons and get a two state solution in place.

I’d actually like to see Netanyahu have to stay in Gaza for a week without all of his creature comforts. Never would happen unfortunately.

With or without IDF protection? Big difference in life expectancy.
