In the wake of the June 12th disappearance and alleged murder of three Israeli youths, Naftali Frenkel (16, from Nof Ayalon), Gilad Shaer (16, from Talmon), and Eyal Yifrah (19, from Elad), the latest Israeli “crisis” has, so far, claimed the lives of at least 7 Palestinians but that number promises to increase rapidly.
The Israelis have named their new genocidal slaughter-fest Operation Protective Edge.
One has to admit, it has an more marketable ring to it than the 2008 Operation Cast Lead, which killed over 1,400 Palestinians (6 Israeli soldiers killed, 3 Israeli civilians compared to 491 Palestinian soldiers and 926 civilians).
And “Protective Edge” is even slightly better marketing than Israel’s Operation Pillar of Cloud (or Pillar of Defense) which they conducted on Gaza, again under the cover of an Obama election this time in Nov. of 2012, which claimed the lives of 6 Israelis (4 civilians) and 160 Palestinians (107 of which were civilians)
