While you’re still trying to figure out where you stand in this “two sided” “conflict”, Gaza is being bombarded. Over ten family houses have been struck; 14 people killed and 25 are injured so far.
YOU KNOW WHAT? IM SO SICK OF THIS SHIT. IM PRETTY SURE MOST OF THE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD DONT KNOW THAT ISRAEL IS BEING BOMBARDED TOO!
A FEW HOURS AGO I WENT TO A FRIEND’S HOUSE AND WHILE WE WERE PLAYING SIMS WE HEARD A SIREN AND RAN TO THE SHELTER WITH HIS FAMILY(each and every house in israel has a shelter). WE STAYED THERE FOR 10 MINUTES UNTIL IT WAS SAFE TO GET OUT. NOW IM AT HOME AND IM AFRAID TO GO TO SLEEP.
IT MAKES ME SO MAD THAT THE MEDIA SHOWS THAT ONLY ONE SIDE OF THE CONFLICT IS BEING HURT. BOTH OF THE SIDES ARE BEING HURT EQUALLY.
This reflects the Israeli mentality perfectly. Bombing Gaza and the occupied territories to them is such an abstract concept, it happens far away from them, they never hear about it if they don’t go digging for it in international news.
Suddenly, it’s not so simple. Suddenly, oblivious Israelis in Tel Aviv, for the first time in decades, if not ever, are actually feeling that there might be consequences for holding an entire population under a brutal occupation.
Israelis are spoiled rotten. Look at this, they’re whining about a ten minute interruption to their pointless video game. Meanwhile, people are dying by the dozen in Gaza. In their mind, this is actually comparable. It’s the logic of Zionism.
You don’t realize, that at this point we have nothing to lose. What are you going to do, bomb us? Hah. You have everything to lose. You with your decadent lifestyle at our expense. With your night clubs and your bars and your discos. Us? Not so much.
Thanks to you, we’re used to this. Your occupation has consequences. Your oppression has consequences. Get that through your thick colonial skulls. There will never be peace under occupation. You might as well go back to where you came from, you’ll never be welcome in this land as a colonizer.
The chickens are coming home to roost.
First of all, don’t act innocent. You know very well that Gaza was the one to start this bombardment so don’t call it *our* video game. You think this is an abstract concept to us? You think we don’t hear about it almost every hour every day? Don’t you think Israelis discuss any of these issues on a daily basis? Well let me tell you we do.
You are complaining about people dying in Gaza (as a result of counterattack, a step Gaza made us take as self defense) when you know very well that we killed 5 TERRORIST that tied to invade Israel, and two (at least) Hamas and Jihad activists. All of you know that Israel would never kill innocent people only based on their religion or origin, but almost all of you of course choose, or were raised to deny it and try and make everyone else believe that we’re sinners here.
By the way, yeah maybe this person was complaining about a ten minute siren because they’re not used to it in Tel Aviv but let’s think about Ashdod ans Sderot that practically need to live in shelters. They live in fear almost 100% of the time.
It seems that you’re forgetting every other war or any “slight” attack, from one of our arabic neighbors, when in every single one of them at least a third of this country had to be in shelters. Maybe for 10 minutes, maybe an hour or maybe more than 3 weeks in a row. And let me remind you that we gave you Gaza 9 years ago so don’t tell me you’re “used to this” because there are people here who live like this ever since 1948.
STOP trying to present us as self centered aggressive colonizers that we’re not. STOP playing the victim. STOP changing the facts and rambling about this whole anti-zionist hateful crap that they brainwashed you on.
Oh you discuss it? That makes me feel so much better now. You truly are burdened by such discussions.
No. If you don’t want to discuss it, you can simply shut off the news and never know what’s going on, because 95% of shit that happens never reaches you in any meaningful way other than some fireworks on the border towns. This might come as a surprise to you, but It’s a bloody occupation. You’re not occupied, we are.
You’re afraid? Boo fricking hoo, that’s daily life for us. Somehow, and in your mind, Gaza is responsible for this all. Because you and your Zionist ilk, have some sort of mythical selective memory. You’ve created your own version of history where you’re somehow the victims in this. But it’s ok, you discuss it.
The story doesn’t go back a week or two, like you imply. The story goes back before 1948. The story goes back to you deciding that the only way to establish your ethnocracy was by ethnically cleansing my people from the land, how about that? That is colonialism 101. Yes, your entire society is colonial. Get over it. This was BEFORE Hamas, BEFORE the PLO, BEFORE Islamic Jihad. But it’s ok, you discuss it.
I find it so hilarious that you’ve somehow missed all the soldier testimonies saying that they have indeed, committed war crimes, have indeed killed innocent civilians just because. Women, children, elderly, you name it. But I mean, this isn’t the first time we see this, Deir Yasin, Kafr Qasim. But it’s ok, you discuss it.
You say Israel never targets innocent people, then in the same sentence call me brainwashed. I’m dying of an irony overdose here.
All I need to do is go outside of my house to see that you’re self centered aggressive colonists. I’m sure you’ve never been in the occupied territories for more than 10 minutes, you know, the whole occupation thing tends to make people a bit bitter, ya know? But I’m sure we’re just overreacting. But it’s ok, you discuss it.
You have people like Mandela, Tutu, Malcolm X and other social justice heroes calling your country an oppressive fascist regime towards anyone non Jewish. Yet, somehow you’re the ones playing victim, and I’m the one changing facts. I gotta hand it to you, you Zionists have an amazing coping mechanism, sadly it doesn’t work on all humanity. Your bubble is bursting slowly. I promise you, one day you’ll realize you’re on the wrong side of history. So keep discussing it.
You discuss it. Like i said, abstractly and far away. We live it. We die in it. And that has consequences.
