Strenger on Hamas

Guardian

More "critiquing" from another Hasbara leftish-ish Zionist:
Israel is united by disdain for Hamas because it does not value the lives of its own children enough to avoid sacrificing them for political gain. But Israelis are divided on the extent to which we can let an enemy dictate the amount of human damage we inflict on them.

Carlo, the world is becoming united at the disdain Israel shows for the lives, freedom and wellbeing of Palestinians tout court. Forty years of Occupation are an indelible testimony to that.

And to our humanist I'd also like to ask what His People would do if any resistance to its oppressors was deemed illegitimate and any illegitimate (and thus the only possible) resistance was to meet with exterminative force. Answer me that, you hypocrite...
I will never stop criticising Israeli policies that I take to be wrong-headed, short-sighted or immoral. But I have no sympathy for the critics of Israel who refuse to see that there are ideologies who put destruction above human life and wellbeing. Hamas has changed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from something that can be solved, to a clash defined by the principle that only one side can survive - critics cannot expect Israel to accept this simply because it is the stronger side.

Israel has transformed itself to a European Colonialist project with the sole purpose of ethnically cleansing all of Palestine, for the creation of an Arab-rein Eretz Yisrael. Even 'moderate' claptrappers like you can't see it (or instead they lie about it).

"All that you have done to our people is registered in our notebooks," as the poet Mahmoud Darwish said.
