Listen to a reading of this article (reading by Tim Foley): Here are the ten dumbest things we’re being asked to believe about Israel’s war on Gaza, in no particular order: 1. That Israel had no idea what Hamas was up to prior to October 7, but ever since October 7 has known about every hospital, mosque, school, refugee camp and water tower that Hamas is hiding in.
It’s terribly sad to me that anyone calling for a cease-fire is accused of supporting terrorism.
"That it would be perfectly fine to murder children by the thousands even if they were being used as “human shields” — as though resolving a hostage situation by mowing down thousands of child hostages would be regarded as reasonable and acceptable by the public if it happened in our own country."
I hear that there are Terrorist Sympathizers in Washington, DC. According to formal DC logic, it would be perfectly acceptable and laudable to nuke DC in response.
I only hope that Congress is in session.
I almost cannot bear it anymore. And I'm only reading about it. I do not know how they keep going, for generations.
Israel literally has hell to pay for what it's done over the last 75 years. If you were to clinically evaluate that country it would have to be a narcissistic psychopath.
We live in societies run not by anyone worthy of the term “leader” but simply by grifters and liars.
I thought Chris Hedges was being harsh when he said it many years ago already, but now it’s blindingly obvious. They are stupid liars. So stupid that they assume we are all more stupid even than them and they can tell blatant lies that defy even what our eyes tell us.
I was at my sister-law’s house the other morning when she came into the living room and turned on Fox News and low and behold they were talking about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict(of course they referred to it as an Israeli-Hamas conflict) in Gaza. The person on there mentioned something about a ceasefire and my sister-law said something like I hope there isn’t a ceasefire or something along those lines. I asked her why did she not want a ceasefire and she just started talking about how Hamas has hostages and they killed innocent people. I didn’t deny that, but I said the Israeli Defense Forces were bombing hospitals, homes, apartment buildings etc. in other words civilians, not Hamas. I told her this is a genocide and she really just went off on me and said so you’re on the side of the Palestinians. I tried to explain to her that Israel was murdering civilians, of which over half of them are children. The point being that this is a genocide and she called it a war and said war is horrible, but Israel has to do this because Hamas are holding hostages and blah blah blah. People don’t want to steer away from the msm on this issue and of course Fox News is biased toward Israel anyway and won’t talk about the atrocities committed by the Israelis really since 1948 against the Palestinians. It became a shouting match with her yelling & screaming at me. This is all to say how people are very emotional when it comes to this conflict. As horrific as the Hamas attack was on 10/7/23, it doesn’t justify Israel taking it’s collective punishment/vengeance out on women and children, especially the children, whom have nothing to do with voting for Hamas. I’ve done some research and from what I’ve read recently atrocities were committed against the Palestinians way before there was Hamas. But of course one can’t say stuff like this without being called antisemitic which couldn’t be further from the truth.
It is painful to see that the worst of our world just goes on and gets worse. We are lied to and manipulated. We are all Palestinian.
"...mowing down thousands of child hostages would be regarded as reasonable and acceptable by the public if it happened in our own country."
After watching our evening news and learning of the latest shooting/killing of a child or young adult in our area, I'm beginning to wonder if this isn't what's happening in the good ol' US of A. Mowing down thousands of children is completely reasonable and acceptable by the American public, just as long as they don't interrupt the football game for that breaking news alert about yet another shooting. Priorities, don't you know. #FreePalestine #Ceasefire #BoycottIsrael
Over 10,000 now dead in Gaza. America is gone. God help us all!
The Geneva convention accords more rights to enemy soldiers in war than the Israeli government is giving to the wounded in Gaza by bombing hospitals, cutting off medical supplies and electricity and water. Cattle are given more rights for humane treatment written into US law than the slaughter occuring in Gaza. This is purely and simply genocide. The US government by continuing to supply arms and building up US military forces in the Mideast is complicate in this genocide. Is this a precursor to the US invading Iran as a means of preventing them from developing a nuclear arsenal, as well as provoking Iran into"throwing the first punch" so the US has an excuse? Perhaps Halliburton has a contract for rebuilding Gaza for the Israelis once the genocide is complete. The UN is also complicate by it's inaction. It's a waste of space in New York City. Morally and ethically this is worse than the Nazis Holocaust because the world is watching in real time (which wasn't the case in WW2 ) and demanding a ceasefire.
Has the military budget increased by the "aid" we are sending to our "allies".? It's now over a trillion dollars if not.
One more lie - That these war crimes are supported by biblical scripture.
I don’t support Israel, nor do I support Biden and US Foreign Policies. Millions do not, but millions are manipulated, stupid!😡without conscience.
Totally nailing it Caitlin
Simply right, Caitlin.
All we are saying is give peace a chance!
The USA has become ATM of foreign wars like Ukraine and Gaza: why?
What is being done now (and for much longer, of course, but especially now) by Israel in Gaza takes away their future right to call on the Holocaust to invite empathy for the suffering done to the Jewish people. Let me be 100% clear: I do NOT dismiss/deny/justify (etc) what happened during WW2.
But, after today, after this point in history (autumn 2023), the Judes have no longer the moral privilege to play out the Holocaust Joker card whenever they are cornered for their crimes. All Jews, wherever they live in the world, should condemn this and take action to stop it.
If not, just as all western politicians and civilian warmongers, they, too, are complicit to the crime that is unfolding right now, in our lifetime. I am extremely discusted by the inertia of those people who have the power to stop this.
I continue pondering, Why don't the alleged true Jewish leaders EXCOMMUNICATE Netanyahu? They would merely be following the Torah, as I understand it. One of my favorite philosophers, Spinoza, was excommunicated at age 23--for having a beautiful perspective on the universe!
They would not only be doing the right thing, they would look much more credible in the eyes of the world. Or at least to anyone with a milligram of humanity left. SERIOUSLY!
