kamikaze-nazi said: I always see people messaging you saying "but what about Hamas" .. Hamas gained power in like what, 2007? This conflict was going on for yeaaaars before that. Also, if you oppress a whole nation of people what the fuck do you expect? Obviously they're going to fight back. Israel attacks them and them blames them for fighting back? What do they expect them to do, sit silently while their families and friends and neighbours get murdered?
I concur. I was just writing this in a reply to the last Zionist dude who sent another message (I gave up because my head feels numb and it’s 4.30am here) - Israel had been attacking Palestinians for over 50 years before Hamas launched its first rocket. The difference now is that Israel has a scapegoat for everything.
Bomb schools? Blame Hamas!
Carry out massacres? Blame Hamas!
Attack ambulances? Hamas!
Hospitals too? Hamas Hamas Hamas!
By the way you might be interested in a clip I watched several days ago of Abby Martin talking to Alison Weir (founder of If Americans Knew). They covered this exact topic and it’s about 13 minutes long. Make yourself a cup o’ tea and watch it here.
