So I decided to make these two images to compare your typical Hamas rocket strike in Israel, to your typical Israeli missile strike in Gaza
The first is of a Hamas rocket exploding in Israel. No damage, no shockwave, tons of smoke, and that’s it. This is because Hamas rockets do not even contain a warhead, and in order to sustain any sort of damage or injury, you must basically be hit DEAD on.
The second is of an Israeli airstrike decimating a home in the Gaza strip.
The IDF claim that Hamas has launched around 800 rockets into Israel, with about 20% of them being intercepted by their Iron Dome missile defense system. They also claim that they have launched strikes on over 1000 targets in the Gaza Strip.
800 Hamas rockets - ~200 intercepted, leaves us with 600 rocket attacks on Israel, attacks carried out using mortars like those seen above.
Compare that to 1000 strikes launched by the Israeli “Defense” Forces, carried out using missiles like those seen above.
It doesn’t matter how “kind” the IDF is in warning Gazans to “flee” or to “seek shelter”, Israeli missiles will simply decimate anything and everything they come into contact with, and there is no place to hide.
And a reminder that not only do the warnings have little helpful effect, but also that “they only send warning shots when the Hamas member is not at home. As evidenced by their bombing at the beach where they claimed 1 Hamas member was there. No warning shots were given to the 12 people who were at the cafe on the beach at the time. An israeli official was quoted saying “we don’t give warnings to terrorists”.
Because obviously, they’re all terrorists, right? /sarcasm
A Staten Island man died Thursday after police placed him in a chokehold as they attempted to arrest him for selling untaxed cigarettes.
According to authorities, Eric Garner, 43, went into cardiac arrest and died at Richmond University Medical Center following the arrest that was filmed by several witnesses.
In the video, Eric can be seen telling police that he had not been selling cigarettes, repeatedly saying, ” I didn’t sell anything,” before insisting, “I’m minding my own business, please leave me alone.”
After a standoff, five officers tackled the 400-pound asthmatic Eric — with one placing him in a chokehold – and wrestled him to the ground as they attempted to put handcuffs on him.
As Eric lay on the ground, with one officer pushing his head into the pavement, he can be heard saying, “I can’t breath. I can’t breath,” over and over.
As the video ends, Eric appears to be unconscious as police clear onlookers while waiting awaiting paramedics.
According to his family, Eric, a married father with six children and two grandchildren, suffered from asthma.
“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Eric’s wife, Esaw, told reporters.
Police stated that Eric has been arrested multiple times for selling untaxed cigarettes, and records show he was due in court in October on three charges, including pot possession and selling untaxed cigarettes.
Witnesses at the scene claim Eric was breaking up a fight when police arrived, with Eric’s family stating that he didn’t have any cigarettes on him or in his car at the time of his death.
“They’re covering their asses; he was breaking up a fight. They harassed and harassed my husband until they killed him,” Eric’s wife said.
Within hours after Eric’s arrest and death, residents in the area hung handwritten posters on telephone poles near the scene with phrases like “no justice, no peace” and “Another innocent black man has been killed by police brutality. The NYPD must be stopped!”
typa shit i was talkin about in my post earlier

“When men cook food, it’s art… but when women cook, it’s their duty.”

I saw this movie in English class and it was absolutely BRILLIANT. 10/10 would recommend.
whenever a guy cooks well, everyone says he could be a chef at a five star hotel

It’s a really great movie. Touches on a whole lot of themes. 10/10 would recommend.
When I was little me and my friends used to make paper flip phones in class and this made me tear up a little
HOW DO YOU DO THAT
Sure, #weneeddiversebooks so that my future kids know they can be heroes…
…but we also need diverse books so that white readers know my kids can be heroes, too.
MOMMA WILL GIVE ADVICE.
ALWAYS REMEMBER: MENSTRUATING DOES NOT MAKE YOU BAD. IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE SICK. IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE DIRTY.
First of all, do not go swimming in the ocean to look for Momma.
Momma will be right here.
Momma suggests that at first sign of blood, take tylenol. If you are super in tune with your body, take it when you estimate it will start soon!
Momma knows EXACTLY what to do for cramps. Eating cranberries or drinking their juice is a wonderful way to get rid of cramps.
Another way to help with the pain is to rest on your bed like in the picture, butt in the air and head on the ground.
Also, if you do not like pads OR tampons, there are more solutions!
They are very similar to one another. They are basically soft, silicone cups that go up into your lady cave that collect the blood.The softcup is a bit more expensive.
Also, Momma says that if you want to have sex and not have gushing everywhere, you can use a softcup!
The mooncup is a lot like the softcup, but it is reusable. Momma will remind you that you MUST disinfect it in boiling water.
You can even use natural sea sponge like a tampon!
Momma says it’s okay.
There are also cotton reusable pads!
Momma is also thinking of you men that have periods, too!
There is a special kind of boxers that you can buy with a special pocket for sanitary products! It also comes with a bulge.
The most important thing to do, menstruating or not, is to love and respect yourself. Do not feel ashamed, and get through it as well as you can!
Momma loves you!
