Does Israel want to wipe out the Palestinians?

After today's massacre, over 55 dead so far. Absolutely no regard for Palestinians basic human rights. What is the end game? Tomorrow marks the 70th anniversary of the Nakba and things are only getting worse. Events in the occupied territories are worse than anything endured in apartheid south Africa. They need support from the ground up from all people as the political will is not there.

I would hope the Irish defence forces would shoot dead any person or groups who would try to cross our border with criminal intent.

No-one said the Palestinians had to riot and act the bollocks because an embassy opened.

But they did.

Nobody said the Palestinians had to start invading the border of Israel despite being warned numerous times not to do so.

But they did.

I would have thought that was obvious,the IDF have been jizzing in their pants since this protest kicked off...gives them a chance to pick off a few more Palestinians

In our own history we have bloody Sunday in Derry when people decided to protest and British soldiers shot 28 unarmed civilians. The scale of what is happening to Palestinians dwarfs anything that ever happened in our own troubles. Apartheid Israel has brought barbaric treatment to a whole new level

And, as usual, it is a bunch of kleptocratic Palestinian "politicians" that profit from keeping the conflict going so that they can siphon off more aid money from the West. And at the same time, sacrifice kids so that they can do so.

The answer is of course no. Even during the last "war" against the palestinians 3 or 4 years ago the Gazan population actually went up despite the deaths due to the ridiculously high birth rate of the palestinians.

Hamas knew what would happen when they organised these attacks on the border, they are quite happy for the Israelis to create more "martyrs" that they can parade on western media.

If any European nation behaved like that they would be kicked out of the EU. And rightly so.

What does “knowing what would happen” mean? When white supremicists shot at peaceful black protests, did the responsibility like with Martin Luther king or the ANC?

Nonsense, if that was true the Baltic states would now be back in the Russian "motherland" by now.

What conflict?

By the IDF's own admission one soldier was "slightly wounded by shrapnel" and "Our troops have not taken any sustained direct fire". Also no one crossed the border.

55 Palestinians are dead. 2,000 are injured.

That's not a bloody "conflict"
