So he calls me up and he’s like, “I still love you.” And I’m like..”I just..I mean this exhausting, you know. Like we are never getting back together. Like ever.”

You are the best thing that’s ever happened to me. You are the reason for this tour, this show, and these memories. I hope you remember it as well as I do.

The RED Tour consisted of 86 shows total worldwide and brought $139.2 million to the concert box office. Taylor Swift became the first solo female artist in 20 years to headline a national stadium tour through Australia since Madonna, and the first female artist in history to sell out the Allianz Stadium since it was opened in 1988. In 2014, Taylor played five sold out shows at the O2 Arena in London and finished the tour in Asia in mid 2014.

The RED Tour: March 13th, 2013 – June 12th, 2014

Gaza - Here’s what happened:

Updated: July 26, 2014

What do we learn:

  1. Israel knew that the 3 Israeli settlers had already been killed. They lied about it to use it as an excuse to commit acts of violence in the West Bank under the guise of looking for the kidnapped teens.
  2. Israel knew Hamas didn’t kill the 3 Israeli teens from day one, yet they publicly blamed them and vowed revenge leading to the current massacre in Gaza.

A note on human shields: Although Israelis love to respond with “there are civilian casualties because Hamas uses human shields”, they offer no proof of these claims. This is propaganda 101 and has been repeatedly debunked by Amnesty International and other international agencies who found that it is actually Israel who uses human shields in its operations. During the current operation, many Gazans reported Israeli snipers commandeering the roofs of their homes as bases and preventing them from leaving their homes, using them as human shields.

Here’s what Israel actually means by human shields: “The people who go into a house despite a warning do not have to be taken into account in terms of injury to civilians, because they are voluntary human shields. From the legal point of view, I do not have to show consideration for them. In the case of people who return to their home in order to protect it, they are taking part in the fighting.” - a senior figure in the International Law Division (ILD) of the Israeli Military Advocate General’s Office.

So when Israelis say ‘human shields’ they mean people who were sitting in their home after they were told to leave. The status of these people is legally changed from “non-combatants” to “combatants” under Israeli law. The warning mentioned in the quote can be:

  1. Leaflets dropped from the air onto hundreds of thousands of people’s homes. Evacuation warnings to entire areas are illegal under international law. They are illegal even for small areas, and are considered a form of collective punishment.
  2. A phone call or text message telling the person their house will be bombed between one and five minutes from the time of the call. Again, under international law, this does not turn the person or their home into a legitimate target even if they do evacuate it.
  3. A “knock on the roof” which is a small missile dropped on the house which means the house will be bombed within one minute, giving no time to the inhabitants to actually leave before the second missile completely flattens their home.

On July 16, Israel dropped leaflets on 100,000 Gazans in northern Gaza to evacuate (5% of the entire population of Gaza). This means that Israel legally changed the status of 100,000 civilians to ‘combatants’, and Israel can legally kill them if they do not evacuate.

Besides, many homes were bombed while families were still evacuating. And countless homes, and a few schools sheltering people who fled their homes were confirmed bombed without any form of warning. So Israel has absolutely no legitimacy, even by its own twisted standards.

Now: AlShejaiyya, Gaza. The search for bodies continues as death reaches over 1000+. Medics are being targeted and shot at by Israeli forces preventing them from reaching certain areas of Khan Yunis. #Gaza
