zerogoukki asked: i'm kinda disappointed that you don't know more about what's happening in the gaza strip rn, dion. first off, the human shields thing is a myth frequently spread by israel as an excuse to kill and imprison palestinians. secondly, when gazans build tunnels, it's usually because nothing gets in or out of gaza otherwise -- it's an open-air prison. third, hamas didn't even kidnap those teenagers; it was a lone cell of extremists from the quaramesh clan of hebron, which is in the west bank (cont)
(cont) third, israel is not targeting militants, at least not specifically. AT BEST, they are blasting homes, hospitals, at least one school, etc to bits and hoping that maybe there are some militants inside. really, they’re just trying to kill as many gazans as possible. hamas is horrible, i understand that, but it is acting in retaliation. israel has also been using illegal weapons that are literally CANCER BOMBS (look up DIME weapons). i’d be happy to send you some sources if you’d like.
All of this I could accept if it wasn’t for Hamas rejecting ceasefires and firing rockets during ceasefires. I mean, I would need a source that confirms that every bad thing ever said about Hamas is just a lie.
I mean as far as the human shield thing being a myth there’s this: http://www.unrwa.org/newsroom/press-releases/unrwa-condemns-placement-rockets-second-time-one-its-schools
And the UN is known to be pro-palestinian. I can’t support Israel, I can’t support Palestine either. I’m only talking about their governments. There are so many disillusioned Israelis you wouldn’t believe. The majority on both sides don’t want this violence, it is bad men in places of power that continues it. In my opinion.
