"They claim to have CCTV clearly depicting him commiting the crime they’re accusing him of, as well as a confession obtained in the initial interrogation and incase that doesn’t stick, an extra bonus confession he wrote inside the boat. How is it the prosecution also need more time to review and obtain evidence? What exactly are these unspecified complex legal issues keeping them from indicting him, given the mountain of evidence they claim proves his guilt? It’s been 5 weeks. Some may argue that the public aren’t entitled to know everything, but it’s odd they’re happy to release footage of them walking around at the marathon, pictures of them with arms full of snacks and other information to the public (like the existence of CCTV showing him placing the bag down, details of the carjacking, false info that he was heavily armed, false info from Ed Davis that he fired upon officers from inside the boat, false info that his throat wound was self-inflicted, the revelation that he was in fact unarmed, allegations that he ran over his brother, the confession during the interrogation, the confession written in the boat, the fact that his repeated requests for a lawyer were ignored), but when it comes to supplying any proof of these things (like the actual video of him placing the bag, any CCTV confirming the carjacking victim’s story, any proof that he ran over his brother, any proof of the hospital bed or boat confession), suddenly they go quiet."

"#PalestineStrongState @PalstineArise. -
“I’ve really tried to understand the Israelis. I used to work on a farm in Israel. I speak Hebrew. I watch their news. All the time they talk about fear. How they have to run to their bunkers to hide from the rockets. How their children can’t sleep because of the sirens. This is not a good way for them to live.
We Palestinians don’t talk about fear, we talk about death. Our rockets scare them; their rockets kill us. We have no bomb shelters, we have no sirens, we have nowhere we can take our children and keep them safe. They are scared. We are dying.”
Mohammad al-Khoudry, a farmer in Gaza.
This sums up the entire Israeli-Palestinian “conflict” in a quote.
“Our rockets scare them; their rockets kill us.”
“They are scared. We are dying.”
It’s not a symmetrical conflict by any means.
It’s occupier vs occupied.
Makeshift rockets vs tanks/drones/and the latest modern military equipment.
