    Are you serious?? Wake up!!!

    What about Hamas breaking into Israel and murdering 1400 of our people. Raping and harming women. Burning babies in the mothers ovens. If you were here and saw what we did..you would understand. Hamas are terrorists and need to be dealt with so the people of Gaza and my own people can be safe. And what about our Hostages. Get a life …this is a wicked thing to accuse us of. We are after Hamas only. So why not scream at them. Your sick

    According to the New Testament Jesus called the Jews as Serpents:

    “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” (Matthew 23:33)

    Even according to their own Scriptures Moses has cursed them:

    “But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command thee this day, that all these curses shall come upon thee and overtake thee: cursed shalt thou be in the city and cursed shalt thou be in the field, cursed shall be thy basket and thy store. Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine and the flocks of thy sheep. Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out” (Deuteronomy 28:15–19)

    What a hypothetical and evil of those who are saying ISRAELITES has committed human rights vilotations? What right has the Demonic hypocrites evil Russia to call Israelites has caused human rights vilotations? When you Russia invaded a souvrign Nation Ukraine. The UN secretary-general must resign immediately, after supporting Hamas Terriosts group, everything indicates he the Secretary General is Terrorist himself, because he who supports human beings, hospitals, kingdedens as a Terriosts lunching grounds and been used as human shields is totally evil 👿🙈. Now that the Whole World have seen the dangerous and the evils of the body of the United Nations? Is very very disgraceful and disheartening. What a shame. Everyone, who supported the atrocities and the inhuman of the Hamas Terriosts group to the Israelites on 7th October 2023 must resign immediately. This UN bodies is being manned by,Terriorit groups. They don’t represent the Civilized World 🌎. My message to the Israelites and their Military, and the Government is do whatever it takes to wipe out Hamas Terriosts group and every Terrorist group, that they deem being threatening to the Israelites. God Almighty bless Israelites Amen 🙏 and Amenoooooh 🙏

      In response to your comment, it’s important to address several points with factual clarity:

      1. **Allegations of Human Rights Violations by Israel:** The assertion that Israel has committed human rights violations is not merely hypothetical. Reports by various human rights organizations, including Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, have documented instances where Israeli actions in the Palestinian territories raised serious human rights concerns. These reports are based on extensive research and are not influenced by political biases.

      2. **Comparison with Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine:** While the invasion of Ukraine by Russia is widely condemned and considered a violation of international law, it is a separate issue from the Israel-Palestine conflict. Criticisms of Israel’s actions do not justify or excuse Russia’s actions in Ukraine, and vice versa. International law and human rights standards apply universally.

      3. **Role of the UN and its Secretary-General:** The United Nations and its Secretary-General strive to maintain neutrality and work towards peace and security worldwide. Accusing the Secretary-General of supporting terrorist groups without substantiated evidence is a serious allegation. The UN’s support for humanitarian aid in conflict zones, like Gaza, is part of its mandate to assist civilian populations, not an endorsement of any group’s military tactics.

      4. **Hamas and Terrorism:** Hamas is indeed designated as a terrorist organization by several countries, including the United States and the European Union. However, the situation in Gaza and the West Bank is complex, with a mixture of civilian and militant elements. The international community generally advocates for a peaceful resolution to the conflict, not the escalation of violence.

      5. **Call for Resignations Based on Support for Hamas:** It’s important to differentiate between criticizing the actions of the Israeli government and supporting Hamas. Many individuals and organizations around the world express concern over the humanitarian situation in Gaza without endorsing Hamas.

      6. **United Nations’ Representation:** The UN represents a diverse range of member states with varying viewpoints. While it’s not perfect, it remains a key international body for addressing global issues.

      7. **Military Action Against Terrorist Groups:** While the defense against terrorist threats is a right of every nation, international law requires that such actions be proportionate and discriminate between combatants and civilians to avoid unnecessary loss of innocent lives.

      8. **Religious Blessings:** While religious sentiments are personal and respected, international relations and conflicts are typically addressed through diplomatic and legal channels.

      In conclusion, while your concerns are noted, it’s crucial to base discussions on verified facts and adhere to principles of international law and human rights. Dialogue and understanding, rather than escalation, are key to resolving complex international issues.
