re: #28 Destro

Sometimes I have to wonder, you people do know Israelis have killed more Palestinians than the other way around, right?

Sometimes, I have to wonder: you do know that Israel is world-renowned in military circles for being a leader in minimizing civilian casualties, & that the only reason said casualties are so high is that Hamas makes sandbags & shields out of their women & children? That they BRAG about this?

It’s like the old West, American settlers always feared Indian raids but in reality more Indians died at the hands of settlers than the other way around. So who was really under threat?

It’s NOTHING like the Old West because Israel stole nothing! The administrators of the area gave Israel to the Jews, who asked all the locals to stay. 60% of them refused to listen & have been fighting ever since. False equivalencies aren’t just irritating, they’re dangerous.
