Post is so very important in all senses of the word … yet – THIS!! … “We should all oppose the indiscriminate firing of rockets by Palestinians into Israel and suicide bombings as war crimes, We should also be aware of a huge disparity between the industrial violence carried out by Israel against innocent Palestinians and the minimal acts of violence capable of being waged by groups such as Hamas.”
Gaza – 2014
I have been listening to all of the words used by Republicans, Democrats and the MSM to describe Israel’s current assault on Gaza; the worst since 2014. lasting 51 days, killing over 2,200 Palestinians including 551 children.
The words are the lie of false equivalency.
Israel, by employing its military machine against an occupied population that does not have mechanized units, an air force, navy, anti-aircraft missiles, heavy artillery and command-and-control, not to mention a U.S. commitment to provide a $38 billion defense aid package over the next decade, is not exercising “the right to defend itself.” It is carrying out mass murder.
Gaza is the world’s largest open-air prison, where more than 2 million Palestinians exist on the edge of starvation, struggle to find clean water, get perhaps 4 hours a day of electricity and endure constant Israeli artillery and air strikes.
What are the crimes…
