In case you haven't noticed.

So what does the US, Israel and Russia all have in common? You guessed it, cluster bombs!

Diplomats from all over the world met in Dublin where over 100 nations agreed to ban the use of cluster bombs. The US, Israel, Russia and China (including a few other nations) rejected the treaty and will not agree to the terms.

In the most recent Israeli-Lebanese war, Israel used hundreds of thousands of cluster bombs, 90% of which were dropped in the last 72 hours of conflict when a resolution was imminent. Just two days ago, Ex-US President Jimmy Carter finally revealed what everyone already knew, Israel has nuclear weapons.

To your 60 years of genocide, and many more to come, happy birthday Israel. Happy birthday to you.
