In 2009, Venezuela and Bolivia cut diplomatic ties with Israel, expressing disgust at the country’s actions during “Operation Cast Lead” – a three-week conflict that included an Israeli ground invasion of the Gaza Strip and caused heavy civilian casualties.
The following year, after Israel’s raid on the Mavi Marmara flotilla that killed 10 people, Nicaragua announced it would suspend ties with Israel.
Since the beginning of Israel’s current offensive on the Gaza Strip against Hamas, five Latin American countries – Ecuador, Brazil, Peru, Chile and El Salvador – have withdrawn their ambassadors to Israel in protest. Meanwhile, Bolivia has dubbed Israel a “terrorist state” and rescinded its visa-free policy for Israeli travellers, and Chile has also suspended free-trade negotiations with Israel.
With the only power plant in Gaza destroyed by Israel, 1.6 million people are without electricity and 2 in 3 don’t have access to safe water or basic sanitation.
Watch more on Israel and Palestine…
Excuse the disrespectful manners. What else do you expect from a Zionist? I made sure that he said this statement. His account is active; it’s real.
How about this world? He said it him self. Do you still think he is out there with his Israeli army bombing people in Gaza to “eliminate” Hamas? No, they want to eliminate all Palestinians.
This is not about Hamas.
President Evo Morales announced the move during a talk with a group of educators in the city of Cochabamba. It “means, in other words, we are declaring (Israel) a terrorist state,” he said.
At least 17 killed and 200 injured in Shujayea, an area Israel said was not included in four-hour humanitarian window.
At least 17 Palestinians have been killed and 200 wounded in the bombardment of an area of Shujayea during a “humanitarian pause” unilaterally announced by Israel.
The attack came on the outskirts of the Shujayea, between Gaza City and the Israeli border, shortly after the Israeli army said it was observing a limited, four-hour Wednesday ceasefire from midday GMT, or 3pm local time.

“86.5% of Israelis oppose the ceasefire in the Gaza strip according to a poll sponsored by Roni Rimon, a former strategist of prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s party.” -Damien Sharkov from Newsweek.
I hope people realize how big of a deal this is. When almost 90% of Israeli’s say do not ceasefire, what does that mean? It means they are not being hurt. So the resistance in Gaza claiming that they do not target civilians is true. It also means that they are supporting the massacres in Gaza and want to watch more Palestinians murdered. We’ve obviously seen that from multiple events they’ve done. Such as sitting on hilltops and chanting every time a bomb falls on Gaza. Or singing in protests “death to Arabs.” Or their ministers saying kill all Palestinian women. Or beating up Palestinian women in the street of Palestine. And much much more.
And Israel’s silly excuses are “self defence” and elimination of Hamas. If you are a believer of these excuses, please put down your ego, open your mind, and reflect on the current situation. Israel has been massacring Palestinians far before Hamas was formed or labeled as a terrorist group. Just yesterday Israel bombed a UN school which was a refuge for families seeking safety killing 10 people. Eye witnesses (even people who do not support Hamas in Gaza) say not a single “Hamas rocket” was fired from anywhere near. What about this UN car (attached), was a “Hamas” soldier running behind it and launching rockets to Israel, forcing Israel to target both? Or was a Hamas soldier “hiding” under the car for protection?
