“On some basic level, you forfeit your right to be called civilians when you freely elect members of a terrorist organization as statesmen, invite them to dinner with blood on their hands and allow them to set up shop in your living room as their base of operations. At that point you begin to look a lot more like conscripted soldiers than innocent civilians. And you have wittingly made yourself targets.”
Clearing Up Some Confusion in the West Bank
Can I please have one Hamas apologist speak up and provide a valid argument as to why they would side with Palestine in this conflict? There is absolutely no reason at all that you should be blaming Israel for the mess in the West Bank. Furthermore, how can anyone in their right mind accuse Israel of terrorism and “uncalled for acts of war”?
The way Hamas manages itself internally and internationally is cowardly and immoral. They hide behind women and children, store their missiles in school buildings (http://tinyurl.com/kmkfghs), continuously launch missiles at Israel despite consistent interceptions via the Iron Dome and knowing Israel’s “0 Tolerance Policy” with regards to terrorism. What’s worse is that once the Israeli’s strategically counter-fire, all the media wishes to show are the dead and suffering H̶a̶m̶a̶s̶ ̶m̶i̶l̶i̶t̶a̶n̶t̶s̶ “innocent civilians”. It couldn’t be any more clear that Israel wishes for nothing more but peace in this region, and Hamas want nothing more than the eradication of Israel and it’s Jews.
To call this conflict a “cycle of violence” is nothing short of idiotic. When Egypt proposed a cease-fire, Israel accepts it. Hamas, however, does not. Hamas has launched over 100 rockets which have ended up striking not Israel, but GAZA. Prior to a strategic and well-thought-out military offensive, the IDF drops hundreds of thousands of fliers over the Palestinian territory to warn them and give them a few days notice
to relocate, sometimes even contacting them by phone. Meanwhile, knowing that Israel will soon strike, Hamas URGES their own citizens to STAY PUT, thus producing casualties which international media outlets use to provide a false narrative of the conflict. It doesn’t help that the UN gets it’s casualty numbers from the Gaza Ministry of Health.
Sorry for the long rant, but after everything that’s happened in the news this past week and seeing all the ignorant Hamas apologists defending the terrorist state of Gaza, I needed to get this off my chest. Just remember this: the difference between Israel and Hamas is that Israel uses missiles to protect it’s citizens, but Hamas uses citizens to protect their missiles.
Somehow, society has turned the act of murdering an innocent child into a symbol of women’s rights. Disgusting.
goodetogo asked: United States Marine here. You wish to keep assault weapons to protect from government tyranny- is it then hypocritical to fight against military budget cuts? It would be impossible to stop tyranny with a military this large.
