A Quick Thought on the Gaza Crisis.
Thanks for covering this. I feel what's happening now is closer to genocide than anything that's happened in a while. Over 7000 Palestinians dead in a week? Sounds systematic to me. And it's a tragedy that it's happening because of someone's abnormal psychology -- they simply haven't dealt with the wounds of the past, so it seems. Becoming the perpetrator doesn't help. Better to heal the mindset that gave rise to the problems in the first place.
Hey Joe, I am interested in how you come to the conclusions you do with these videos. The Ambassador said that their war was with Gaza, I may be wrong but that is a place not a people. He also said that people can leave Gaza if they want which suggests that their intent is not to kill the people for the sake of killing them. The video of the soldier saying the war is with the citizens, the context of that is him saying that the citizens are also killing people, not saying that Israel just kill citizens cuz they like it. Idk if Israel is in the right but I don’t see how interpret these interviews to mean what you are saying they do.
It is genocide. The U.S. needs to stop supporting this, now!
When you consider a certain population "human animals," genocide can't be too far behind. And Israel is clearly guilty of all five of the conditions listed above. What is even more disgraceful is that our president and Congress have as much blood on their hands as the Israelis--not only by what they are not doing, but what they are: falling over one another to "stand with Israel" by sending more weapons to be used against a captive civilian population. Get ready for the blowback.
