No, I didn't read the whole thread. I didn't even read the entire post by the OP, it became clear after just two paragraphs what the intention
I couldn't care less about the history.
The facts can be twisted by whoever for whatever they like. No land on this Earth belongs to anyone.
For me there is no connection between history and what Israel has been doing in recent months in Gaza.
Nothing, and I mean NOTHING excuses Israel in their action in Gaza.
I have chosen to boycott Israel and call for justice at every opportunity because Israel has committed war crimes against the people of Gaza.
Israel chose to join the ranks of hateful, evil, nasty, despicable nations of its own accord. And I will never feel guilty for stating the obvious
Hide it all you like under stories and history, Israel still chose to act in this way toward a civilian population.
No historical reference, no tales of being a victim, no defense of "they started it!" is acceptable.
Nothing excuses Israel using chemical weapons, shooting children in the head, demolishing civilian homes, killing UN staff, leaving children to starve
by the bodies of their families, bombing UN locations, refusing aid, refusing press access, direct censoring of press...
I could go on of course.
These are PROVEN events. Not Hamas propaganda, not reported by biased news agencies. They are PROVEN to have happened, as shown by every Aid group
working in Gaza, the Egyptian medical staff, and by independent groups and workers throughout the world.
If you want to try to defend Israel, face the facts. Defend their actions, ALL OF THEM, state that you accept their PROVEN war crimes and stop hiding
behind your statements of "anti-Israel" propaganda BS.
I've never listened to the common theories about Zionism, NWO, and the like. I've never really had anything against the Jewish faith, no more so
than any other.
I always believed that what happened to the Jewish people in history was disgusting and shameful.
But Israel, as a nation, has joined the list of nations acting in despicable ways towards others.
Simply by their actions against the people of Gaza, they are no better than many of their previous enemies.
I have ZERO respect for Israel. No sympathy.
And Israel has done this, not the people murdered in Gaza. Israel is responsible for the anger and hatred directed at it from around the world. Israel
