Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS) issued a stunning and unprecedented rebuke to Palestinian leadership while speaking to US Jewish groups in the midst of the prince’s American tour last month.

MBS reportedly told the heads of Jewish organizations in a closed-door meeting in New York on March 27th that Palestinians should either accept peace proposals or “shut up,” according to Axios.

Multiple diplomatic sources, including a leaked Israeli foreign ministry cable sent from the Israeli consulate in New York, confirm the statements which shocked the audience to the point that “people literally fell off their chairs.”

US Blocking UN Gaza Measures Enables Israel to Continue ‘Onslaught’ – Palestine

US Blocking UN Gaza Measures Enables Israel to Continue ‘Onslaught’ – Palestine:

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The United States blocked a draft UN Security Council statement to address the deadly clashes in Gaza which has enabled Israel’s defense forces to continue its onslaught, Permanent Observer of the State of Palestine to the UN Riyadh Mansour told reporters.

“It’s very unfortunate that a few minutes ago one country out of fifteen broke the silence this evening while the fourteen were ready to adopt this statement,” Mansour said on Friday. “This is very irresponsible and it lacks sensitivity by the delegation of the United States of America.”

UK Labour leader slams Israel’s killing of over 30 Palestinians

UK Labour leader slams Israel’s killing of over 30 Palestinians:

UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has condemned the West’s silence over Israel’s killing of over 30 Palestinians during anti-occupation rallies in the Gaza Strip.

Corbyn read a message at a rally on Saturday outside Downing Street in London, saying “The silence from international powers with the responsibility of bringing a just settlement of the Israel-Palestine conflict must end.”

“The killing and wounding of yet more unarmed Palestinian protesters yesterday by Israeli forces in Gaza is an outrage,” he told the crowd, adding that “firing live ammunition into crowds of unarmed civilians is illegal and inhumane and cannot be tolerated.”

IDF Kills 7 Palestinians During 2nd “Great March Of Return” Protest; 2 Teenagers Among The Dead

IDF Kills 7 Palestinians During 2nd “Great March Of Return” Protest; 2 Teenagers Among The Dead:

Update (3 pm ET): Now that the sun has set on Gazans’ second “Great Return March”, Reuters is reporting that Israeli troops shot and killed a total of seven Palestinian protesters while wounding at least 200 along the Israel-Gaza border.

That raises the death toll to 27 between today’s demonstration and last Friday.

The dead include two minors – a 16 and 17-year-old boy.

The crowds were slightly smaller than last week’s demonstration. Protesters gathered around five different encampments set up along the border, Reuters reported.

IDF snipers have been instructed to shoot any demonstrator who wanders too close to the border fence – something that many younger Gazans have tried.

After more than 20 Palestinians were killed during protests along the Gaza border fence last Friday, all of whom were subsequently labeled as violent terrorists by the IDF, and hundreds more were wounded (many of them under the age of 18), thousands of Gazans marched to the border for the latest in a series of planned demonstrations leading up to the anniversary of Israel’s founding on May 15.

Israel rejects calls for inquiry into Gaza violence

Israel rejects calls for inquiry into Gaza violence:

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s defense minister on Sunday rejected international calls for an investigation into deadly violence along Gaza’s border with Israel, saying troops acted appropriately and fired only at Palestinian protesters who posed a threat.

Fifteen Palestinians were killed and over 700 wounded in Friday’s violence near the Israeli border, according to Palestinian health officials. It was the area’s deadliest violence since a war four years ago.

Human rights groups have accused the army of using excessive force, and both the U.N. secretary-general and the European Union’s foreign policy chief have urged an investigation. In an interview, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Israel would not cooperate with a U.N. inquiry if there were one.

Israel Will ‘Respond’ “Inside Gaza Strip” If “Organized Terrorist Operations” Continue

Israel Will Respond “Inside Gaza Strip” If “Organized Terrorist Operations” Continue:

As Israel inches ever-closer to an all-out war against Hezbollah in Syria (a war that could expand to encompass southern Lebanon), the IDF this week also mercilessly crushed yet another massive Hamas-organized border protest in Gaza, deploying drones to shower thousands of demonstrators with tear gas while firing live rounds and rubber-coated steel pellets into the crowd. By the time yesterday’s border clashes had ended, at least 15 Palestinians were dead and over 500 were wounded.

Of course, a spokesman for the IDF – a Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis – denied allegations of excessive use of force. He said the men killed by the IDF belonged to a violent, militant faction of Hamas, and that several dozen people – at most – were injured by live fire while the rest were merely impacted by the tear gas and other crowd-control responses. Gaza’s Shifa Hospital received 284 injured people Friday – most of them with bullet wounds. Of those, 70 were under the age of 18. And 11 were women, per the Associated Press.

Gaza hospitals, running low on blood and overstretched by the huge number of wounded, were reeling after one of the enclave’s bloodiest days outside of open war, in which Israeli soldiers shot 773 people with live ammunition, according to the ministry of health.

Fifteen of the wounded died, said the ministry spokesperson Dr Ashraf al-Qidra. “Most of the dead were aged between 17 and 35 years old,” he said. “The injuries were on the upper part of the body.” He added that the remainder of the wounded, some of whom were in a critical condition, had been “shot with live ammunition”.
