Hey anon again,
1. It’s not “60 years of this and that.” It’s “Israel forcefully removes indigenous Palestinians from their land and proceeds to form an apartheid state based on systematic oppression, discrimination, and genocide of Palestinians.”
2. It hasn’t been proven that Hamas had anything to do with the kidnapping.
3. This isn’t Hamas vs. Israel. The Islamic Jihad, Al-Aqsa Brigades, DFLP, and PFLP are all fighting against Israeli airstrikes. This is Palestinian civilians vs. Israeli state-of-the-art missiles and military.
4. The Israeli government knew within less than a day who the suspected kidnappers were and that the Israeli teens were dead. They even lied to the parents that their children were still alive. Why is this important? Because Netanyahu and his secret intelligence used this media blockage as a way to garner sympathy and support from Western leaders to go in on Palestinians to “rescue” the teens. This whole situation was twisted in a way to excuse Israel to go in hard on Gaza. Think of 9/11 and the Iraq War.
5. Hamas rockets have caused no deaths in Israel while the death count in Gaza is at 135 (and rising) with 28 being children, 900 injured, and more than 3000 displaced.
6. The difference between a Hamas rocket and an Israeli airstrike. No wonder nobody’s dead in Israel.
The matter of the fact is that this isn’t a “war.” Israel isn’t “defending itself.” This is an occupation, and an extremely violent one at that. I suggest you don’t trust Western media sources such as CNN, BBC, Fox, etc. because they are highly biased towards Israel and will even resort to false reports to garner sympathy for the “poor Israelis.”
Remember: If Israel stops firing, the war will be over. If Gaza stops, it will cease to exist.”
It’s fascinating to me how so many people applaud the “resistance” as the good guys, the brave underdogs, in MOVIES and STORIES. But the same situation (well… resistances in movies are usually more effective…these people have barely anything to resist with) in real life, and they are immediately labeled TERRORISTS. Why? Because they’re brown? Muslims? Arab?
Because that’s what’s you’ve been told? Question everything. This is important. Look at the facts. This has NEVER been war. It is a massacre.
(Excellent place to start your education, Read “The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine” BY Miko Peled. He comes from Zionist royalty. The facts in his book are verified and sourced. And it is just the tip of the iceberg)
