Chef José Andrés, founder of the World Central Kitchen (WCK), accused Israel of targeting his aid staffers “systemically, car by car” when seven of them were killed in an airstrike Monday delivering desperately needed food to hungry Gazans. The Israeli military, meanwhile, said Wednesday that an investigation found that its forces misidentified the aid workers’ vehicles as hostile amid international criticism for the deadly bombing and Israel’s ongoing six-month siege of the enclave. The three WCK vehicles, which included two armored cars and a third unarmored one, were targeted in multiple strikes, killing workers from Australia, Canada, Poland, the UK and the US as well as their Palestinian driver.

These bleeding heart Hamas sympathizers got what they deserved with their commie virtue signaling grandstanding and their Goose was literally cooked. The food they produced got a well deserved three missile rating from the Israelis. Insert yourself into a war zone and there will be consequences, usually fatal.

I would think 2 armored cars in that neighborhood would be someone special to HAMAS and therefore a legitimate target.

Were the WCK vehicles marked like the Red Cross or were they using unmarked vehicles? If relatively unmarked vehicles, how could the Israelis distinguish those vehicles from Hamas vehicles? When you look at one of the damaged vehicles, the insignia doesn't look like the Red Cross or a UN type vehicle. Hamas uses similar insignias to deliver war materials. Accidents in war happen, especially in a high risk war area. Providing relief to individuals in a Hamas occupied territory is risky to say the least. It appears that the WCK communication to the Israelis didn't work. Sorry but that lack of adequate communication is on the WCK not the Israelis.

Well common sense would certainly indicate that driving around on what amounts to an active battlefield in unmarked motor vehicles is an extreme danger to life and limb. You would think that such movements transporting food aid would have been coordinated with the Israelis and possibly even the Hamas terrorists to keep the aid workers from ending up dead?

Anything with "World" in its title is usually working against Israel's interests and helping the terrorists. Besides, Hamas is taking the lion's share of any aid being distributed in Gaza. I can't wait until Biden's offshore soup kitchen is in operation.

I wonder if those car pictures were staged, especially the one with the car with a hole in the roof. How does a missile enter the roof of a car, killing everyone inside, but not blow the car apart? Palestinians have had a history of staging scenes with dead bodies moved from place to place in the past so perhaps these scenes were staged and the Palestinians killed the aid workers,

The Gazans are hungry because Hamas wants them that way so they can save their own power. this is a wrong unjust diagnosis and it is death-dealing. Hamas likes the Gazans poor and hungry and violent. It has a use for every one of their corpses. There is no way to save the Gazans except to kill every member of Hamas who will not surrender. It is Hamas who want Gazans dead or wounded, all of them.

#5: One of the articles I read said the vehicles were marked on top with the World Central Kitchen logo. Here's the WCK logo: Good for stationary and brochures. I suspect the busy design and lack of contrast in the design itself (against what color background?) make it difficult for aerial surveillence to recognize. Not to mention, is it an official, internationally-recognized/registered symbol that means "don't shoot here" like the Geneva Convention's Red Cross and the Hague Convention's Blue Shield for protected cultural site. (One is red and white, the other is blue and white.) Think about those handmade signs you see for yard/garage sales. The letters look perfectly fine to the people who made them. How do they look to you, driving by at 35 mph?

If Israel did target "systemically, car by car," then I don't see a problem. Wars cannot be fought and won by pretending your enemy is honorable, compelling you to disadvantage your own forces. Biden, would willing trade 1,000 Israeli or American military lives for every Muslim vote he can pull from Michigan.

Three of those killed were not "Aid Workers", they were part of a Security Force hired to protect the Aid Workers, from "Solace Global" a Brit company where all employees are former Royal Marines.(another killed was a local palistinian driver) They provide what some may call "Mercenaries" to perform personal protection to executives in danger zones, and onboard merchant vessels transiting danger zones, initially past Somalia. Great Poutrage was leveled at Blackwater and similar companies that were USA based by the same left/Media outlets calling these operatives Heroes. One of their most popular "Products" is a real time tracking service that shows where a client is down to the foot, and a retrieval force for rapid response if that client is kidnapped, captured or wounded. IF they had coordinated their service members with Israel this clearly never would have occurred...they claim the vehicles were "Clearly marked on their roof", but it was 11pm, and the markings were NOT IR reflective as the redcross/red crescent and "Friendly" force vehicles are. Likely they were targeted because they were in direct radio/cell phone contact with known Hamas individuals, and each rocket was RIGHT ON TARGET, while not using explosive warheads to mitigate collateral/civilian risks.

Since the pandemic, more New Yorkers stopped paying their property taxes. It’s attributed to the end of the tax-lien sales program that would go into effect when people didn’t pay their taxes. The notoriously incompetent City Council didn’t renew it. Under that plan, the city was authorized to sell liens on single-family homes and condos after three years of nonpayment; liens on other property types could be sold after one year. They don’t have to and don’t seem to care, or they can’t because New York is bad for business. Inflation and regulations are not mentioned but must be part of the problem.

Researchers found that about 67 percent of Trump supporters are mostly voting for the former president. Among Democrats, about 52 percent indicated their votes will be against Trump.
