This has nothing to do with the defense of Israel against a few Hamas.
They are not killing Hamas, they are killing innocent people, women and kids.
How on Earth can ANYONE defend this?
We all know that Hamas are bad.
But what is this action going to do?
We know it is not going to stop Israel being targeted, in fact, this will now increase as the thousands of people left behind will now want to enact
revenge for those murdered by Israel.
No intelligent person can support this action. No one with an ounce of intellect and common sense can argue that this is the right course of action to
take. It's destabilizing the entire region, putting more Israelis at risk, creating more terrorists, creating protests worldwide, forcing people to
turn away from Israel in every community on the planet.
How is this a good thing?
People bang on about rockets fired into Israel, I get it. That's the ONLY defense Israel has for this action, and it's a tired excuse.
Every spokesperson I've seen on every news station immediately deflects things like the Red Cross accusing them of ignoring the protection of
innocent children, the bombing of UN sites and convoys, and they deflect it with banging on again about the rockets.
It's a massive propaganda war they are engaged in with the international community, and I am not falling for it.
When I see an Israeli on the news actually displaying some compassion, emotion, some sense of anguish about this, then I might start to change my
view. But right now, I see a genocide taking place and I see arrogant, emotionless, propaganda spewing Israelis going on and on about rockets
endangering their civilians.
Israel is committing war crimes. I don't care if you agree or not. This is not open for debate or discussion, it is a fact that not one Israeli
supporter can deny.
In any other region of the world, if the UN came under fire there would be outrage. But not if it's Israel firing on them, why is that?
In any other scenario, the Red Cross finding children starving by the bodies of their dead families would cause condemnation and uproarious cries of
anger by world leaders, but not when it's Israel killing those mothers and leaving their children to die.
Not one person with a sane mind can justify these actions by Israel. If they do, they are either insane, completely ignorant of what is really
happening, or simply nasty to the core (I won't use the word "evil" in this case, because that suggests religious overtones).
This is insanity of the worst kind.
No doubt another pro-Israel member will post in just a second ignoring the statements by the Red Cross, Amnesty International, the UN.. and they'll
state again "but, but, but, the rockets...!"
That's the only thing they can use to justify the mass murder of Palestinians.
