While you’re still trying to figure out where you stand in this “two sided” “conflict”, Gaza is being bombarded. Over ten family houses have been struck; 14 people killed and 25 are injured so far.
YOU KNOW WHAT? IM SO SICK OF THIS SHIT. IM PRETTY SURE MOST OF THE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD DONT KNOW THAT ISRAEL IS BEING BOMBARDED TOO!
A FEW HOURS AGO I WENT TO A FRIEND’S HOUSE AND WHILE WE WERE PLAYING SIMS WE HEARD A SIREN AND RAN TO THE SHELTER WITH HIS FAMILY(each and every house in israel has a shelter). WE STAYED THERE FOR 10 MINUTES UNTIL IT WAS SAFE TO GET OUT. NOW IM AT HOME AND IM AFRAID TO GO TO SLEEP.
IT MAKES ME SO MAD THAT THE MEDIA SHOWS THAT ONLY ONE SIDE OF THE CONFLICT IS BEING HURT. BOTH OF THE SIDES ARE BEING HURT EQUALLY.
This reflects the Israeli mentality perfectly. Bombing Gaza and the occupied territories to them is such an abstract concept, it happens far away from them, they never hear about it if they don’t go digging for it in international news.
Suddenly, it’s not so simple. Suddenly, oblivious Israelis in Tel Aviv, for the first time in decades, if not ever, are actually feeling that there might be consequences for holding an entire population under a brutal occupation.
Israelis are spoiled rotten. Look at this, they’re whining about a ten minute interruption to their pointless video game. Meanwhile, people are dying by the dozen in Gaza. In their mind, this is actually comparable. It’s the logic of Zionism.
You don’t realize, that at this point we have nothing to lose. What are you going to do, bomb us? Hah. You have everything to lose. You with your decadent lifestyle at our expense. With your night clubs and your bars and your discos. Us? Not so much.
Thanks to you, we’re used to this. Your occupation has consequences. Your oppression has consequences. Get that through your thick colonial skulls. There will never be peace under occupation. You might as well go back to where you came from, you’ll never be welcome in this land as a colonizer.
The chickens are coming home to roost.
Not surprised how detached and oblivious to reality you are when you confess to playing Sims, sunsedawn.
