"Terrorist": there's that word again. One man's "terrorism" is another man's fight against oppression and Apartheid.

100% supportive of Palestinians. gently caress Israel. If your "right to exist" depends on the occupation and oppression of another class of people, then...I dunno. Maybe your ugly little apartheid state shouldn't exist.

The ruling class can't seem to decide who the designated evil enemy should be. They were trying to drum up distrust and hatred of China because of the scary social media app; that didn't work, so I guess they decided to settle on Iran.

It's insane to me that Israeli military leaders can openly talk about their opponents as "animals" they're going to starve, and yet all the blame for war crimes and death goes to the Palestinian """terrorists""".

i guess one bright spot is that everyone i've talked to about this irl so far has been surprisingly anti-israel and have been also extremely disgusted by the dehumanizing jingoistic coverage

Same. I - thankfully - have not heard anything about Israel from my friends and family, pro or con. It's setting up an interesting dynamic where the only people who really care are Zionists, evangelicals and establishment politicians of both parties.

annnnnnd I just lost a friend (that converted to Judaism just recently) that I've had for 10+ for not supporting Israel. Ugh. This sucks. :smithcloud:

She literally tried to tout the the r*pe and beheaded baby poo poo at me. I sent her the story saying that the baby beheadings hasn't even been confirmed; sent a clip of Palestine territory\land getting smaller and smaller and smaller but she just up and blocked me.

Admittedly; I don't know much about this conflict, and have been trying to learn and read up like crazy. I'm sure there's the "two sides to this" bullshit propaganda.... but... legit most "intelligent" people friends I describe as comrades have not a single good thing to say about Israel and their reign of terror over the years.

Israel's cause is so unimpeachably just and good that they can't handle anyone questioning the wisdom of their genocidal actions, a true mark of being the 'good guys'.

e: I don't mean to seem callous about losing a friend. A lot of my family friends are pretty conservative religious people, and I've been lucky enough not to have to hear their infuriating Israel opinions on social media....yet. Losing friends always sucks.

It does seem like this is really exposing both Israel and the US empire as paper tigers, and that a lot fewer people give a gently caress about Israel this time around aside from psycho politicians and bloodthirsty press people. I'm not familiar enough with the history of Israel's conflicts to know for sure, though.

To me, the fact that no token opposition whatsoever is being allowed in the west, and that several governments have already started threatening jail time for anyone with Pro-Palestine sentiments seems to be a sign that things are going really, really bad for Israel.

It certainly shows the righteousness of the Israeli cause that they would have to crack down so hard on anyone who dares go against state propaganda.

Right. People have been saying "this is October 2001" or "this is 2003" all over again, and in some ways that's definitely true. But it's probably going to be another Red Scare where anyone who stands up against the consensus on Israel will be blacklisted for being """antisemitic""".
