israel genocide

I was speaking to a friend in Gaza and he told me that his little cousin is writing her name all over her body with her markers, just in case she gets blown up and no one can identify her. She is 11 years old. 11. The psychological pain and trauma the palestinian children go through is absolutely repulsive.

I don't know if you've heard this going around, but Gal Gadot used to train Israeli soldiers hence is a huge supporter of the genocide of Palestinians, and a lot of people have been refusing to speak positively of the movie because of that

Israel has a mandatory service for its military. She didn’t have a choice when it came to being a part of that. But she did choose to be a non-combatant, which I think is commendable.

This demonization of Gal Gadot is thinly veiled anti-semitism at best, so please do your research when bandying this shit about. 

Very sorry for the misinformation I posted on winston churchill, there is no excuse for it, I have harmed people, and I must apologize for it, for the white supremacy of the post, for the blatant antisemitism, and just for the general inaccuracies, I hope you all who had already reblogged the original post reblog the new post which says how awful of a post it was, or you can reblog the ones posted further down our blog notes I’ll link all of them:

New post updated so as to not cause confusion in the future.
A post made by several people explaining how wrong it was
A post with an apology, and a breakdown of of even more that was wrong with the post

I would like to thank all of you for debunking this bullshit I posted, I’m sorry my fuckup lead to you spending your time debunking trash that simply shouldn’t exist. Thank you all for your contributions it lead to the disposal of the original post’s statistics, replaced with all of your words so when people go to the source they now see the truth of the post: that it was dangerous and harmful misinformation. The link is still attached to it, so people know that the link itself is bullshit, and not to be trusted.

Again, thank you all for your time and contributions.

Those who spent their time and effort debunking my bullshit: @tikkunolamorgtfo @vermiciousyid @brehaaorgana @hero-israel

And I never would have seen this without: @attackoftheskydancers posting about it.

Today marks holocaust remembrance day. Today we remember the innocent souls that died because of their religion, their sexuality, their race, their   disability and because they were different. 11 millions souls perished in    this genocide (6 million of them were Jews). Let this be a reminder of   the outcome of where hatred and  ignorance can lead. Let us learn from     history and bring light instead of darkness into this world.

Most importantly, let it serve as a reminder that If humanity has the power to destroy 11 million lives, it also has the power to save 11 million lives; the power to turn ashes into trees.

Different anon, I've been reading up a little about this and it looks like Gal has persistently supported the IDF which have been brutal in their Zionist occupation of Palestine. That makes me pretty uncomfortable tbh

I mean I’m certainly uncomfortable with what The IDF has done and continues to do. I’m uncomfortable with what my own military has done and continues to do. Thinking about it makes me want to weep.

But all I’ve seen from Gal Gadot are tweets that are the equivalent of “support our troops and bring them home safe” which isn’t exactly condoning violence against Palestinians. She’s wishing luck to teenagers in combat - teenagers who were conscripted.

It’s a pretty big leap to accuse her of condoning genocide, is all I’m saying.

You have to look at context and do your research when it comes to these things. Try to imagine what it’s like to be an Israeli woman, a woman whose country has been threatened with annihilation from the very beginning. A woman who has probably been indoctrinated by a military that is convinced it’s in the right. Imagine being a mother desperate to see her children grow up safely in their home country.

By all means criticize the IDF, but don’t demonized Gal Gadot for being forced to be part of it, especially when she chose not to take part in violence.

Imagine that not so long ago, in any given country you are familiar with, half of the entire population had been forcibly expelled within a year, half of its villages and towns wiped out, leaving behind only rubble and stones. Imagine now the possibility that somehow this act will never make it into the history books and that all diplomatic efforts to solve the conflict that erupted in that country will totally sideline, if not ignore, this catastrophic event.

Palestinian: israel is committing genocide against my people

Zionist: uhm well let’s see. gen·o·cideˈjenəˌsīd/ noun 1- the deliberate killing of a large group of people

Palestinian: ok?

Zionist: you’re wrong there are still people living in gaza (:
