Israel controls the narrative of its actions. They justified killing children and civilians and bombing hospitals, refugee camps, mosques, and schools in their quest to exterminate Hamas. To their leaders, Palestinians are animals, and their lives don’t matter. That sounds familiar: dehumanize a group to justify atrocities.
To speak out is to be antisemitic. One reason antisemitism is on the rise. People are speaking out. That label will not silence the truth. There is growing disappointment mixed with negativity towards Israelis.
Palestinian lives matter just as much as Israeli lives. Palestinians have a right to defend themselves.
What is the death toll? As of two days ago, Israelis killed over 11,000 people in Gaza, primarily children and civilians. Its Gaza Genocide Campaign was in response to Hamas’s surprise attack that killed 1400 people in Israel.
Israel claimed to target Hamas, but the bodies show children. Palestinian lives matter, too. Israeli supporters or Biden have yet to show that.
Could Israel’s goal be to settle the rest Gaza as it’s doing in the West Bank? Kill the people and take their land.
What Hamas did was wrong and terroristic, but it pales in comparison to the Israeli response. If Hamas were such terrorists, they would execute hostages in retaliation. If hostages are dead, the Israelis killed them with their indiscriminate bombing.
Biden needs to call for a ceasefire now before more lives are lost and the war gets out of control. Israel does not care if the world falls as long as it gets land and revenge.
Biden needs to call for a ceasefire now! Palestinian Lives Matter!
