    In the other post about this last night, people blamed Hamas for starting it.

    Tho, to be fair, at this point putting Israel at the level of a third grader ‘he started it’ mindset does seem accurate.

      I read a Youtube comment saying that Hamas had “strategically placed civilians” as human shields. As if they are playing a tower defense game.

      We truly live in a parody

        I mean Hamas was actively shooting civilians during the fight so at this point I’ll believe anything. Their level of evil seems to have no bottom.

              It’s spooky how the guy who started that movement went on an LCD fueled psychological break and then vanished from the media overnight.

              Oh well, anyway…

                You see how both sides can play the larp game and it becomes meaningless when you do it constantly?

                  If you keep saying the word LARP at anyone that debunks Zionist propaganda you win every debate.

      If Hamas is willing to use their own supporters as human shields, while they carry out terrorist attacks, it’s not going to inspire sympathy from some third party onlookers.

        That doesn’t really matter.

        If Israel is willing to kill over 200 innocent people to rescue 4 of their own, it means they are valuing the lives of Palestinians less than their own. Simple as that.

        Think about a cop in a hostage situation. If they’d kill a small village to free 4 people, the public opinion would be rather clear.

          Think about a cop in a hostage situation.

          Wait until the hostage taker kills all the hostages and then asks for more money so they can all take paid time off?

          Many of those killed during the raid were because Hamas resorted to using anti-tank weapons and machine guns. Crazy how many people die when you set those off in a crowded area huh?

        Bro what is Palestine supposed to do? Disarm and allow Israel to kill half of them and use the rest as cheap labor 2nd degree citizens?

        Most of the Israeli attacks are not to fight Hamas but to spread terror over the Palestinian people. Israel are the real terrorists living on stolen Palestinian land. Israel doesn’t want peace, they funded Hamas because they thought Hamas would keep fighting, which is proven to be untrue as Hamas offered several long term peace treaties by now which Israel denied.

            Any god who is all powerful and all knowing–yet allows this to happen–is not a god worthy of anybody’s worship. If there are such beings, then our universe may be nothing more than a child’s misplaced Tamagotchi, forgotten under their bed or at the bottom of their backpack.

            Is it better to have an uncaring god or no god at all?

        Their own supporters? The majority of Gaza Palestinians people weren’t even alive when Hamas took power and the majority of Gaza residents come from displaced West Bank refugees that lost their homes to Israel colonizers forcing them off their land. Hamas never gained any footing in the West Bank. Also, Gaza is small enough to walk across in one afternoon. Where is Hamas supposed to fight where there isn’t people?! It’s like locking 100 people in a small room and demanding no one gets in the way of a fight between two people also in the room. Laughable at best to describe humans as human shields when they aren’t allowed to go anywhere else by the ones shooting at them. Ask yours, if the West Bank is 100x larger than Gaza why does Israel deport Palestinians only to Gaza?
