Israel begins its ground invasion of the Gaza Strip
Fucking signal boost this shit
This is one of the most horrific things happening in the world and yet I can’t seem to find out any news about it.
Ambulances are being shot by tanks. Doctors, civilians, children playing on the beach and everyone else are all being killed.
Please don’t ignore what’s happening in Gaza
I see more rationalization these days than denial, which to me is refreshing because it brings out people’s true colors.
I still see a lot of denial, though… People falling for Israel’s BS about always warning ahead of time and Hamas using human shields. Where the fuck do they expect the civilians to ‘flee’ to? Israel is literally shooting fish in a barrel. I don’t doubt that racists and xenophobes don’t care, but I don’t think everyone is a racist or a xenophobe. It’s something so horrible that people with agendas don’t want us to see it, and those of us who feel powerless to change it have a hard time looking at.
On the upside I’ve been in the Yahoo News comments since this started, and it’s done a 180 from being just a handful of people trying to spread the truth in a sea of blatant hate, denial, and misplaced patriotism. Now the people supporting Palestine are in the majority and the ignorant people and Zionists are marginalized and looking like fools. Yahoo comments aren’t going to change anything, but the change in popular opinion is interesting.
I’ll have to branch out and see if it’s shifting elsewhere, too. I hope people really are starting to wake up, at the very least to just how wrong the heavy handedness of Israel is… That’s the start to them finally letting go of the Anti-Defamation League’s propaganda in the States. Only ten years ago if you so much as disagreed with anything Israel does, everyone would flip out reflexively, as though questioning alone made you anti-Semitic. I’d already started to notice that changed years ago.
