      From what I can see as of a couple hours ago, they’ve been bombing the south and refugee camps. So far they use this messaging as a way to corral and murder.

        Israel literally bombed an evacuation corridor they set up.

        They said you can use these two routes between this time, it’ll be safe, and they still fucking bombed them.

        Israel is stopping people from moving, Israel is murdering thousands of innocents and ruining millions of lives, Israel needs to be stopped.

      A few days ago there were already more Palestinian children killed by just the current Israeli bombing of Gaza that the total of Israelis killed by Hamas’ attack.

      Must have been “sympathisers with a terrorist organisation”, same as the ones who will be killed and arrested when the IDF finally enacts their Gaza invasion and anexation plan. /s

        You make some strange and easily debunkable claims here.

        • If “all Palestinians” cherished Hamas there wouldn’t be a Fatah or a PA.

        • The Israeli right wing literally supported Hamas over Fatah in order to justify continued violence and land theft against the Palestinians. Hamas and the settlers (who are now the Israeli government) are literally feeding off each other.

        • The main reason this attack succeeded was because the Gaza border was unmanned, because the current Israeli government moved the military to the West Bank in order to protect the settlers there while they commit attacks on the Palestinians there. Despite the Israeli military describing some of the actions of these settlers as a “progrom”.

        • The “Muslim fundamentalists of the Levant” comprise Christians and other groups too, including Jews before this entire conflict started. There had been Jews in the Levant for millennia, despite it being under Muslim rule for 1400 years. Jews were still banned from Jerusalem under the Byzantines, until the Muslims conquered it and allowed Jews to return to the city. Jerusalem had a Jewish majority when the British took control of the place.

        • I find this idea that the hatred is exclusively due to anti-Semitism to be the stupidest one Israel tries to put out there. Had Palestine been occupied by Bhuddists or atheists, you think they would not resist, or hate their occupier? Was the Viet-Cong motivated by anti-Christian values in fighting both France and the USA? How stupid are you?

        That you generalize all Palestinians this way is racist, and nowhere near true.

        Here are polls showing that even 70% of Palestinians in Gaza wants the Palestinian Authority to take over power from Hamas:

        https://www.washingtoninstitute.org/policy-analysis/polls-show-majority-gazans-were-against-breaking-ceasefire-hamas-and-hezbollah

        Even in the 2006 election (the last held in Gaza) Hamas didn’t even get a majority of votes (they got 44.45%). They were the largest party, and because of the electoral system they won a majority of seats.

      I am getting the feeling that Israel (aka US) is creating more terrorists on purpose. If my entire family was killed and I survived I would be out for blood. I think anyone would.

      Is this done just an excuse for the US to re-insert itself in a middle eastern conflict so our tax dollars can enrich the military industrial complex? Sure seems like it

      We created our enemies in the Middle East, they would have no reason to hate us if we didn’t.

        Setting aside the US for a moment, I think Israel’s embattled condition has always helped the Zionist cause. Being in a state of crisis binds the Israeli people together and draws foreign aid. There’s also a draw for Jewish people around the world to go defend the homeland. All of this draws in people and money to Israel. And of course it creates the martial conditions for them to forcibly exclude millions of Arabs from their “democracy.” If Israel had been peaceably founded and there was no separation with Gaza / the West Bank then Israel likely would have stopped being a Jewish majority, Jewish controlled state long ago. Now that their society is affluent and developed, they’re having a harder time keeping up on birth rates too. You can get people to have 8 kids on a farming kibbutz. Gen-Z ravers with tech jobs? Not so much.

          It’s not just about money, it’s also about approval raitings. Out of control and bizarre as it all feels, the individual politicians involved have to continually keep their supporters scared and seeking violent action (and therefore voting for them) or else a sane person might get elected and stop shoveling money into the war-engine.

        Invade -> Resources?

        Yes -> take if non renewable. Banana Republic if renewable. Create enemies.

        No -> create enemies.

        Stir up tension with enemies neighbors and enemies.

        Sell arms to one/both.

      Their rockets don’t have the range to hit Israel from the south end of Gaza and that’s probably where the majority of their tunnel infrastructure is at too.

        It seems likely that Israel will take control of the north side of Gaza, and then settlers will start living in the north side of Gaza. Then the leftover Palestinians in the south side of Gaza will be in rocket range again. And the cycle will continue

      This is like watching sports. Everyone picks a team and after that nothing else matters than your team winning. If the opposing team gets a red card for nothing it’s good and if your team gets one for a good reason it’s bad. It’s especially true in this case since there’s almost nothing you can blame the other side for having done that the other haven’t.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    GAZA, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Palestinians said they had received renewed warnings from Israel’s military to move from north Gaza to the south of the strip, with the added warning that they could be identified as sympathisers with a “terrorist organisation” if they stayed put.

    The message was delivered in leaflets marked with the Israel Defense Forces name and logo from Saturday and sent to people via mobile phone audio messages across the Gaza Strip, a narrow territory that is just 45 km (28 miles) long.

    Your presence north of Wadi Gaza puts your life in danger.

    Israel has pounded Gaza with airstrikes since the Palestinian militant group Hamas launched a deadly attack on Israeli soil on Oct. 7.

    Israel has massed troops and armour on the border with Gaza ahead of an expected land incursion.

    The Israeli military said in a statement it had “no intention to consider those who have not evacuated … as a member of the terrorist group”.


    The original article contains 301 words, the summary contains 162 words. Saved 46%. I’m a bot and I’m open source!

    In a republic, representatives in power are elected by the general populace. Their decisions represent the will of the citizenry.

    Hamas was freely elected by the people of Gaza in 2006. Their actions did and continue to represent the will of the citizenry. If they didn’t, they would not still be in positions of elected authority.

    So, in a war of aggression by a democratic state, voting age adults are just as responsible for the actions of their country as the combatants they indirectly sent to harm others.

    Gazan adults are either fighting Hamas, or they support Hamas. And I haven’t read ANYTHING about Gazans against Hamas taking up arms to free their country from that elected group.

      That means that you are personally liable for the 1 Million dead civilians from our unconstitutional war in the middle east.

          But America isn’t a democracy, it’s a republic.

          And even then, people don’t vote on military decisions.

          I somewhat agree on principle but practically speaking we live in very large systems with huge momentum these days, even in America where lots of people are armed and can avoid going to a war they don’t want to, they’re not necessarily going to bust moves against the system itself. If you ask me, the most effective action would simply be to buy your way out and enable mass freedom from such industrial war machines

      This is a super simple view of the conflict.

      They elected them in 2006. So there hasn’t been an election in almost 20 years.

      This is a stupid position to take imo.

        Germans voted for the Nazi party to take power. And guess what? Germans supported that party, even after that party they chose to put into power suspended elections. If you elect a government that suspends elections, you’re still responsible for electing that government. You put them there: you and your fellow citizens gave consent.
