killed more than 1,960 Palestinians and 67 people on the Israeli side

Admittedly I haven't been paying the closest attention to this shiatstorm, but when did the Israeli death toll get that high? Last I heard their losses were still in the single digits.

Now, Al-Bisan is far from relaxing, with the wire of its enclosures twisted and crushed, debris and dead animals strewn around, and the remains of militant rocket launchers lying nearby.

And we return to the crux of the problem: Hamas.

If you like your zoo, don't launch rockets from it. If you love your children, don't launch rockets near them. If you are sane, don't launch rockets at all.

Um, I thought Palestinians were already considered zoo animals.

War is a reason you can't have good things. But why have good things when jihad can give you self - righteous self-justification and victimhood which feels way better in the moment?

They are. As evidenced by them using their kids as human shields. If their kid dies, how adorable! A lifetime of victimhood and hate and admiring a photo of the martyr instead of having to feed the kid.

I think the Israeli civilian dead is still in single digits, most of that 67 is IDF.

Not halal, as the animals didn't die clean.

I also heard that this was a problem in Russia. Animals can be pretty sensitive to a diet change, and when you used to feed them on fish imported from the EU, you may have a problem when you can't get it anymore.

Yeah, that's a bit of obfuscation to mix civilians and military together. The death toll is correct.
It's 63 IDF and something like ~200 Hamas. Which makes you think Hamas are the sane ones, until you realize it's just because Iron Dome's limiting their aggression on the civilian populace of Israel; there are no sane ones in this fight.

None of BKVaughn's stuff ends happily. It's like he gets tired of a story and decides to write the most awful, bizarre, dystopian endings possible.

I'm not looking forward to the eventual end of Saga. Mostly great so far though. Fiona Staples is an awesome artist.

Oh and, yeah, Pride of Baghdad was outstanding. The giraffe's page is a stark and awful image. :( Keep yer turtles, I like giraffes.

You are not allowed to count them as people without being declared an anti-semite. Thems the rules.

2014-08-17 03:11:27 AM  
This makes me very very sad. This whole conflict is sad and ridiculous, but the poor animals are caught in the cross fire and it's not like they can run to a bunker and hide. The ones killed outright by bombs are the lucky ones, the animals left behind in shock and to die of hunger and thirst. smdh

There's 3 civilian deaths, the rest are soldiers.

You might have heard the civilian death count, on the Israeli side.

The civilian death count is obviously 1000+ on the Palestinian side, but who cares, I just learned from submitter that animals rank higher than humans.

Diamonds aren't exactly rare. Diamonds are considered valuable because of a relentless PR campaign affecting the superficiality and competitiveness of modern women.

Nope, there were four. The three who were actually killed, and then another lady dropped of a heart attack related to the rocket attacks, and they happily include her among the war dead.

Yes, a lion is probably worth more than a diamond.

Well, I think it's pretty obvious that EggSniper is advocating De Beers hoards a stockpile of Palestinians.

Yeah, I had to stop reading at: "Hissi was insistent there had been no militant weapons inside the zoo.
But buckled rectangular metal rocket launch systems lay among the debris on the edge of the park, near a large building that was also hit by Israeli air strikes. Some appeared still to be loaded with rockets.
"

What kind of Orwellian mental conditioning does one have to go through to achieve that level of denial?  Look, I don't like Israel's antagonistic policies towards the Palestinians, but you could ask any Palestinian and they'd tell you there wasn't a single rocket in Gaza.

From the article:

 "The animals were all smuggled through tunnels that connected Egypt to Gaza, before the passages were shut last year with the ouster of Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, a key ally of the Islamist movement Hamas."


As a side note, I have long wondered why the Palestinians  do not have an "open" border with Egypt. We always hear about the sealed border with Israel, but there's never any mention of why Egypt has the border sealed. Anybody know?
