2200 Palestinian men, women and children were massacred in 7 weeks. All of them lived under a ruthless and criminal occupation, siege and blockade. The vast majority of them were refugees, expelled from land that is now controlled by those who brought death to their doorsteps. Hospitals, schools, mosques and shelters were struck in calculated attacks. Families were executed in their sleep. Civilian infrastructure was intentionally target acroas a tiny, besieged strip of land. This is what Israel does. This is what Western nations arm. This is what US tax dollars subsidize.

Seriously disgusted by folks who are against oppression overseas, but will make excuses when another Black person is executed by cops.

For 72 hours, Israel continued to occupy Gaza, kept a siege in place, & controlled the air/border/sea. That is a “ceasefire.” Palestinians in Gaza aren’t “ruining” anything. Israel is ruining lives, taking lives and punishing 1.8 million people in an open air prison. There are human beings under those bombs. No shelters. No domes. Just impact on flesh and bones.

"But there are two sides!" Yes, occupier and occupied. Oppressor and oppressed. Those implementing a system of domination and those forced to live under it.

Lie: “If there were no rockets, there’d be no bombing of Gaza.” Truth: “If there was no occupation, there’d be no resistance to occupation”

Occupiers don’t magically wake up and say, wow, this is bad, we should stop this. Action and pressure is needed.

Highlights from Netanyahu’s speech yesterday:

Netanyahu: I’m proud of our soldiers and officers, who in the most brave and valiant way, slaughtered families in their sleep.

Netanyahu: We are a moral nation. We only massacred 1700 people in 25 days. It could have been 17,000, but our moral army is so restrained.

Netanyahu: We made incredible progress. We massacred civilians and lost a lot of soldiers. This has truly been a great operation.
