100 Palestinians were gunned down yesterday just trying to get food from a truck to feed their kids. Israeli forces say there were “rushing” the truck so of course the only solution was to murder them.

And speaking of "100," avg. 100 Palestinian children have died every day since the war started

700,000 or so kids are displaced and struggling to eat every day

also remember that big nytimes expose about the mass rapes of oct 7? the one that every major media outlet gave three days of breathless airtime? turns out that was all made up bullshit.

An actual genocide going on that nobody gives a shit about:

Children ‘piled up and shot’: new details emerge of ethnic cleansing in Darfur

Quote:
Gruesome new testimony details one of the worst atrocities of the year-long Sudanese civil war – the large-scale massacre of civilians as they desperately tried to flee an ethnic rampage in Darfur last summer.

Witnesses describe children, still alive, being “piled up and shot” by the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) as they attempted to escape the regional capital of El Geneina in June last year during a bout of ethnic violence in which thousands of civilians were killed.

There is no genocide in Palestine. Hamas would commit genocide if given the chance, however.

Except that's exactly what it is.The Hamas attack was the perfect excuse for Netanyahu to go in full genocide freak mode, killing tens of mostly children.

yeah the fact that Hamas would theoretically commit genocide somehow, amazingly, doesn't legitimize the Israeli government committing genocide in reality. crazy, I know

As long as we don't call it a genocide it's not actually that bad.

indiscriminately bombing civilians in areas you have forced them into? mass graves at hospitals? Netanyahu wants to literally just force out all the Arabs he doesn't successfully kill to finally annex gaza completely

It's definitely a genocide, Netanyahu is unhinged and Biden just is going to support him regardless apparently, which ironically enough is going to likely help him Trump get elected which is definitely what Netanyahu wants.

like two pages ago i pasted the UN definition.

"In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group."

2. part of international genocide law is that if a state determines an action to be "genocide" then they have a legal obligation to intervene. so states rarely use that term.

3. there are other legal terms like "crimes against humanity" (just any killing of civilians) that israel certainly *is* committing, but rhetorically there is incentive on both sides to instead talk about "genocide"... the left can utilize it as a rhetorical bomb, and the right can shift the convo toward whether the actions meet that stricter definition, rather than confronting the more obvious war crimes head on.
but i mean to me it seems like it's close enough to genocide i don't want to pay for it.

also as i've been saying the whole fucking thread: waging this war in this way is BAD FOR ISRAEL and BAD FOR JEWS. any friend of israel/jews should be against this war. instead critics are all "antisemetic," even the jewish ones. whole situation's totally fucked forever. bibi's driving the country off a cliff.

It's genocide. There isn't an argument around this other than by people with some misguided sense of loyalty to a murderous colonial state in the middle east.

UN Halves Its Estimate of Women and Children Killed in Gaza

Quote:
The United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) revised its child fatality figure from the Gaza war sharply downward, reporting more than 14,500 deaths on May 6 but then 7,797 on May 8. OCHA also revised downward its figure for women fatalities from more than 9,500 deaths to 4,959 deaths. The Jerusalem Post first reported the changes on May 11.

The UN attributed its original, higher figures to the Hamas-controlled Government Media Office (GMO) in Gaza, whose figures OCHA has cited continually for the past two months. The UN gave no source for the lower figures in its May 8 update, but the figures precisely match those in a May 2 report from a different Hamas-controlled organization, the Gaza Ministry of Health.
