*The United States is facing growing domestic and international opposition to its support for the ongoing genocide in Gaza. *
*Defying the U.S. and Israel, the U.N. General Assembly voted on Tuesday, 153 nations in favor with 10 against, and 23 abstentions for an immediate end to the killing. *
*Most significantly, the vote on Tuesday showed a slew of U.S. allies abandoning Washington on Gaza. *
*It is the second time in the past six weeks that the Assembly voted for a permanent ceasefire. On Oct. 27, the vote was 120 in favor, 14 against and 45 abstentions. *

Israel is taking away most of the apartment buildings.
Those who care about the Palestinians need to take them in and shelter them.
The situation with Israel and the Palestinians standing off needs to end. There is no workable solution. A supermajority of Palestinians only wants all the land. It is not realistic and it is unswayable.
