Why was what happened to the Dawabsheh family a crime and a tragedy, while what happened to the Fogel family was not? Why was what happened to those boys on the Gaza beach a war crime, but not what happened to Hillel Yaffa Ariel? Is it just that those of you in the BD SS movement just don't think Jewish lives matter? Is that it?
Because the Dawabsheh family were Palestinians living on their own land and minding their own business when Israeli terrorists attacked them in their own home.
Israeli settlers are violent invaders who build their homes on land that still belongs to Palestinians, that are maintained through the subjugation of Palestinians, and are armed to the teeth and do everything they can to make Palestinian lives miserable and force us off our own land.
What you’re asking me is “why is it a crime when the invader kills the native, but not when the native kills the invader? Why is it a crime when the colonized kill the colonizers, but not when the colonizers kill the colonized?” and if you still need it to be elaborated more than that, the you just really don’t care and are looking for an excuse to further justify the ethnic cleaning of Palestinians.
It’s always a tragedy when children are hurt or killed, there’s no denying that whatsoever, and I’m not trying to justify attacks against children /at all/, especially since they shouldn’t have to pay for the crimes of their fathers and they didn’t choose to be born in Israeli settlements, but at the end of the day if you want to blame anyone, blame the invading Israelis who chose to live in Israeli-only settlements on stolen Palestinian land, the people daft enough to choose to move into land STILL OWNED by Palestinians who aren’t even allowed to set foot there and work to uphold a system of apartheid and discrimination, and raise a family.
No tears should be shed for Israeli terrorists living in their illegal settlements.
Israeli settlers are invaders who live on stolen Palestinian land and uphold systems of segregation, racism, and apartheid. They are terrorists through and thought and deserve no sympathy.
