#GazaUnderAttack

This is the strongest and saddest thing I’ve read in a long time. 

Where is the condemnation of Hamas? I understand you’re in a shitty situation, but when your country fires rockets at Israel, don’t expect them to sit back and take it like a little bitch. And, also recognize that Hamas is intentionally telling people to stay in their homes when the IDF is specifically telling them not to stay there. Oh, and when someone does listen to the IDF and  leaves their home, they are met by gangs wielding metal pipes who will beat them. You are avoiding the problem because you don’t want to face it: Islamic culture sucks, and Israeli culture far surpasses it in every single way, except for civilian casualties. And the last part is not completely Israel’s fault. 

Where are they to go? Israel told them to go to Gaza City, to the Mosques, and to the UN Schools. Gaza City has been bombed over and over, killing whole families. Five mosques have been destroyed. A UN school was bombed this week, with no pre-warning given despite Israel claiming that they were doing all they could to save civilians. No Hamas were killed in the school, all 15 deaths were women and children. 
Your comment boils down to ‘Yeah 800 Palestinians are dead but they’re inferior. Nothing is Israel’s fault. Islam sucks.’  
This is not the situation. The situation is that people are dying and it is Israel that is dropping the bombs. The situation is that these people are trapped behind a giant wall. They couldn’t leave if they wanted to. 

Are you so daft or did you just ignore everything I wrote? The IDF told the people via leaflets and phone calls to leave their homes, and Hamas TOLD THEM TO STAY RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE. When people tried to leave their homes because they are smart they were met by gangs waiting to beat the shit out of them. You don’t think there is something a little fucked up about that? Israel’s best dream is to have no civilian casualties because then the world wouldn’t be able to fault them. The situation is that Hamas doesn’t give a shit about the Palestinians and only cares about civilian casualties so that they can garner sympathy from people like you.

Wow, even CNN is now realizing the truth: “Israelis cheer as rockets start to rain down along the Gaza strip.”

Yup, and like people in Gaza aren’t guilty of this same exact shit? Let me see if I can find something that’s comparable.

baby's first words

  • baby: d-d-da..
  • father: daddy?
  • baby: dada /ˈdɑːdɑː/ or Dadaism was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century. Many claim Dada began in Zurich, Switzerland in 1916, spreading to Berlin shortly thereafter but the height of New York Dada was the year before, in 1915.[1] To quote Dona Budd's The Language of Art Knowledge,
  • Dada was born out of negative reaction to the horrors of World War I. This international movement was begun by a group of artists and poets associated with the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. Dada rejected reason and logic, prizing nonsense, irrationality and intuition. The origin of the name Dada is unclear; some believe that it is a nonsensical word. Others maintain that it originates from the Romanian artists Tristan Tzara's and Marcel Janco's frequent use of the words "da, da," meaning "yes, yes" in the Romanian language. Another theory says that the name "Dada" came during a meeting of the group when a paper knife stuck into a French-German dictionary happened to point to 'dada', a French word for 'hobbyhorse'.[2]
  • The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature, poetry, art manifestoes, art theory, theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti-war politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. In addition to being anti-war, Dada was also anti-bourgeois and had political affinities with the radical left.
