Israel begins its ground invasion of the Gaza Strip

israel does not give a fuck. they will kill everyone incl journalists and not bat an eye bc they control this country

Israelis are murderers and American Zionists are accomplices to this barbaric butchery

It is REALLY important to remember that more innocents are under fire more often in Palestine than on luxury jetliners, any day of the week.  And I say this as someone who is flying through Ukraine

CBS 5 AZ - KPHO
For the first time CBS 5 News gets a tour inside the Nogales warehouse holding close to a thousand children who have crossed the border illegally and without their parents. You can see the slideshow of what we witnessed here: http://fb.cbs5az.com/1phfGtS
What do you think the American government should do with these babies, children and teens?

Inside the US concentration camps where thousands of children are being warehoused for the “crime” of crossing an artificial border separating Mexican land from land that the US stole from Mexico.

[Also, I include the original text above as written by CBS News to demonstrate the bigoted way in which they even approach this clear crime against humanity].

Detroit activists call for UN help as city shuts off water for thousands

Detroit has too much of some things – stray dogs, abandoned houses – and not enough of others, such as residents who pay their water bills.
The latest sign of Detroit’s decline came from the city’s water department, when it said in March it would begin shutting off water for up to 3,000 homes and businesses a week in an attempt to stop the utility from sliding even further into debt.
The announcement sparked outrage among activists groups, who say the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) is going after the city’s most vulnerable citizens to shore up its bottom line.
