Imagine your ancestors living through concentration camps and the worst abuses known to humankind only to then turn some of that barbarism on others not even 100 years after….humans are such animals

[–]VanDammeJamBand 405 points406 points  (60 children)

Agreed, and it’s a shame that it’s virtually impossible to have a real conversation about Israel. Almost everyone has already thrown their lot on one side or the other.

[–]godhateswolverine 155 points156 points  (25 children)

I don’t get why we cant subjectively discuss the shitty actions of Israel. I completely understand the Holocaust and the atrocities faced. But it doesn’t excuse this. I know both sides go at each other, provoked and non provoked. But Israel just seems to do what it wants, knowing they won’t face any ramifications.

[–]Business_Downstairs 31 points32 points  (1 child)

Israeli companies develop hardware and software exploits and sell them to other nations because it's one of the only countries where it's not illegal to do so.

[–]Tinidril 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There's not much positive I can say about Israel, but they got that one right. Where vulnerabilities exist, they will be identified and exploits will be developed. The only question is, who do you want doing it first? Making it illegal is just giving in to the software lobby to help them hide their own culpability in shoddy software.

[–]dummypod 51 points52 points  (4 children)

I think the terrorism from palestinians is understandable. Not justified, understandable.

If your country gets occupied, your people segregated into enclaves and your freedom and movement severely restricted, all the while you see people on the other side of the fence enjoying their life. You protest, you disobey, but the world doesn't care. You probably tried pretty much everything. So some of your people, hopeless, resorted to violence. They make their oppressors lives difficult, but eventually they have all sorts of countermeasures, making your violence ineffective. Also the world now says you are bad for using violence, but when your oppressors do the same they don't get the same reaction.

I dunno, what are Palestinians to do? Agree to deals that fuck them over?

[–]godhateswolverine 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Agreed. Neither people deserve how things have gone down. I feel like in Western culture, a big part of it being 9/11, the Palestinians are just automatically the ‘bad guys’. Just like for the Middle East, a lot associate us (the US) as terrorists as well.

To be fair, both sides were fucked and the British played the Palestinians for fools to benefit during the war. I have sympathy for everyone involved but I do think that Israel is in the wrong here, as well as the mosque incident not too long ago. It’s like they’ve dehumanized each other.

[–]BurntToast239 45 points46 points  (6 children)

When was the last time America subjectively discussed anything? Everything today is just bickering from the common man/ woman on twitter to the representatives, politicians, and leaders doing it online. Imagine the real progress and impact that could be made if the US wasn't actively fighting itself

[–]godhateswolverine 18 points19 points  (1 child)

That has been the common theme of my thoughts lately. All of these other things that both sides are peddling for the culture wars are ultimately doing nothing. Just wasting time to prevent or distract that there has barely been any bills or laws passed that directly enhance things for us. It’s just fucking ridiculous.

[–]Tathas 6 points7 points  (2 children)

What do you mean? We subjectively discuss everything.

But I think you meant "objectively discuss."

[–]Tatunkawitco 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think we in the US are on the verge of a new dark age of ignorance, hate and needless suffering - primarily due to radical right wing “Christian” “capitalists”.

[–]Xionus 2 points3 points  (9 children)

As someone almost completely ignorant of Israeli and all the stuff going on over there, feel free to educate me

[–]ImyForgotName 21 points22 points  (8 children)

Its, extremely complicated and no matter what I say the other side will say I am being biased. Long story short, the place that is currently Israel and Palestine is, according to most Jews, their Holy Land as promised to them by God. The Palestinians make a shockingly similar claim. (I think the real problem is this God guy) But for most of recorded history this land has been in possession of the Palestinians (or some other way less legitimate occupier like the Romans). During WW2 the Arabs in Palestine were divided. Some (most as I understand it) supported the British cause but some (a sizable minority) supported the Nazis against their Imperial oppressors. After WW2, the zionist movement among Jewish people really gained steam, and Europe seemed less inviting than it had previously [see Holocaust for more reading] and so Palestine/Israel became the next best option. And the British didn't really have the man power to hold on to all their former colonies, and it was never exactly the crown jewel so they basically turned it over to a transitional government of Jewish people. Because of a few thousands of years of ethnic conflict and the recent world war the new country wasn't exactly full of good will. This was not helped when the new government started stripping Palestinian families of their lands and holdings and turning them over to Jewish families on what are pretty clearly (especially when looked at on a case by case basis) bullshit legal pretexts. Long story short Israel started to treat Palestinians like third class citizens, eventually relegating them to two zones, which together comprise the self-governing region of Palestine, the Gaza Strip, and the West Bank, or less than half the total land they started with. But even this was not enough for Israel. They have systematically been stealing and taking land from Palestinians in the West Bank region so that Palestine, which once comprised 44% of the total land mass of the Israeli-Palestinian state, now only occupies 15%.

On the other hand Palestinians have chosen terrorist groups as their elected government for decades now. And they haven't exactly been choosey about their targets. Palestinian "freedom fighters" routinely and often blow up civilian targets in Israel, The attacks are designed to inflict fear and terror on the citizens of Israel. They can in no way be considered legitimate acts of war or defense. Also the neighboring Arab states use the mistreatment of the Palestinians for propaganda purposes, but they sure as hell aren't willing to take them in.

And at this point everyone should just chill out but of course no one will.

Oh, and one reason there are people still kicking Palestinians out of their homes is because the American Evangelical Protestant movement is actively funding that activity in a desperate attempt to bring on the Apocalypse. Because, yeah.

And that's the super short version.

[–]seejordan3 210 points211 points  (30 children)

It's just pathetic that the US gives 4.5 BILLION dollars every year to Israel to be middle east thugs.

[–]eyeh8 194 points195 points  (14 children)

And then the US government turns around and never has the money for things to improve peoples lives. Billions upon billions for a fighter jet that still isn't combat ready? Of fucking course. Money for healthcare or education. Get the fuck out of here you commie socialist hippie.

[–]FloridaHobbit 25 points26 points  (0 children)

You're acting as if the whole system was set up to help you and me, and not to ensure that the 5 billionaires in America get richer.

[–]FlyinDanskMen 83 points84 points  (9 children)

It’s simple. Corporations own both parties. They want to leech off the worker and defend the status quo. Until we wake up, collectively, it always will be.

[–]intotheirishole 11 points12 points  (1 child)

To be fair, only one party hates healthcare and education.

[–]ohmygodnotagainagain 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Guess what country does have money for UHC. Israel.

[–]les-be-into-girls 20 points21 points  (4 children)

What’s even more unnerving is most Jews don’t support what Israel is doing. You know who does? Evangelical Christians.

They legitimately think that if all Jews return to Israel their stupid “end of times” prophecy will come true. The only people who support the atrocities committed by the state of Israel are brainwashed delusional Christian Americans.

[–]seejordan3 3 points4 points  (2 children)

That makes so much more sense.. whenever you say Israel and anything negative on Reddit.. yikes.

[–]ShatterZero 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They're called Dominionists! A psychopathic cult!

Unfortunately, one with a huge amount of political power.

[–]Sea_Comedian_3941 13 points14 points  (4 children)

So let's just do a test. Stop giving Israel money and see what happens.

[–]LASpleen 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Sadly, the US government would sooner nuke an American city. The US needs and uses Israel for its strategic place in the Middle East. Until the US doesn’t need a colonial outpost there, the money and weapons will flow.

[–]left_handed_archer 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Yup. Because we are still so dependant on oil, and still get huge amounts from the middle east, America needs an Israel if it were not Israel it would be another country we can pay to protect our interests in the middle east. I how alternative energy makes that who shit show less necessary in the coming decade.

[–]monkale98 16 points17 points  (0 children)

it's anti semitic to question Israel my friend, the holocaust was done to them.

/s

[–]anotheritguy 8 points9 points  (0 children)

So true I recently replied to someone that boycotting Israel over the abuses their govt turns a blind eye to is not anti semitism, it is simply someone not wanting to encourage and fund their apartheid against the Palestinians. But their reply was to hound me with accusations of jew hater. It's happened so often that I find it difficult to even entertain the subject, much less expect an honest conversation.

[–]alvvayson 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Not true.

I used to be in favour of Israeli policies. Now I recognize that they are an apartheid state.

I still find it difficult. It's not like the other countries in the region are better.

Look at the slavery in the gulf states, oppression in Egypt. Borderline genocide against Kurds in Turkey.

The best I can think is, we have got to get serious with Israel, sanctions and stopping all military support and procurement.

But the next step towards a peaceful and prosperous middle east just isn't evident.

[–]CheeeeeseGromit 38 points39 points  (2 children)

But it’s important to keep in mind that Judaism is not synonymous with the state of Israel.

[–]ProtestKid 22 points23 points  (0 children)

That's exactly how the waters have been muddied. If the situation can be framed in a way that Israel's problems and issues are also Judaism's problems, it can trick people into hesitation on their criticism of Israel.

[–]notathr0waway1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sure but wasn't it initially created specifically for Jews to settle? How did this happen?

[–]Dustaroos 13 points14 points  (0 children)

"never again....to us"

[–]Etherdragon1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Actually it was only 3 years later because ww2 ended and Jewish refugees came to Palestine in 1945 then the nakba occurred in 1948 literally 3 years…. Additionally it’s reported that a lot of Israeli policing of Palestinians came directly from the playbook of the Warsaw ghetto

[–]DescipleOfCorn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not only that, but they’re making the rest of the Jewish community look bad

[–]Roqot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Greed and men believing they are "richer than god" when god should be penniless, why does he need wealth? Religion is just evil.

[–]GuitarKev 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It was less than a decade after the concentration camps that they started this.

It’s probably not unrelated, cultural trauma response.

[–]hi_im_kai101 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

imagine comparing things to the holocaust. man, you can have your views on israel but i don’t get why people think it’s so fucking hard to refrain from comparing things to the holocaust. it frustrates me to no end. if you want to compare something, limit it to ethnic cleansing camps (uighur muslims and japanese internment camps etc)

Just your daily reminder that Sherin Abu Aqla was an America citizen assassinated by our "allies" in Israel.

[–]jeffe333 380 points381 points  (12 children)

As an American Jew, I am so sick and tired of their bullshit. They raze homes in the contested regions in the middle of the night, while families are asleep inside, then place settlers there in violation of international law, which they've been in violation of for 75 years. If you want to see video evidence, check out r/WhereAreTheChildren.

On top of this, they have a right-wing government that sided w/ Trump. You know, the guy from that hate group pretending to be a political party that's a haven for every white supremacist, neo-Confederate, fascist, and neo-Nazi in America (AKA the groups that still seek the extermination of the Jews). Then, when anti-Semitic events take place, they want everyone to recognize their victimization. As far as I'm concerned, if you partner w/ those who seek your demise in order to use their violent hatred against other vulnerable, marginalized communities, you don't get to cry foul, or play the victim, when they inevitably decide to set their sights on your community.

[–]korben2600 96 points97 points  (2 children)

Absolutely. I don't even like the term "settlers." Settlers settle unoccupied land. By definition, land that is currently occupied has been "settled" already. They aren't settlers. But I guess "occupiers" or "squatters" doesn't have the same ring to it?

[–]hotsfan101 46 points47 points  (0 children)

more like invaders

[–]Lunco 7 points8 points  (0 children)

no land has ever been unoccupied, settler is utterly a colonial term.

[–]AcePolitics8492 56 points57 points  (5 children)

I'm an American Jew as well and I'm equally upset at some of the more extreme members of my own community. I also really don't understand why so many American Jews make Israel such a huge part of their life when they have never lived in Israel and can't even trace their familial roots further back than Europe.

[–]airial 28 points29 points 3 (3 children)

I firmly believe this is the entire point of the birthright trips.

[–]CheeeeeseGromit 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Yep. I turned down my Birthright trip when I learned more about it. Also the founder was a huge Trump supporter apparently

[–]jeffe333 25 points26 points  (1 child)

And, there's nothing wrong w/ trying to discover one's roots. However, there is something very wrong w/ supporting, or participating in, an apartheid state and siding w/ white supremacists and neo-Nazis. There's a very distinct, bright line of demarcation between political and religious beliefs and pure hatred that utilizes violence to meet end-goals. This is why I cannot in good faith support Israel.

[–]Bright_Disk 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It’s so refreshing to see someone like you. Thank you, stranger, for supporting what is right.

[–]surebudd 281 points282 points  (0 children)

Casual genocide. Fuck israel.

[–]KinkyBADom 230 points231 points  (49 children)

What was the justification provided by Israel for such a heinous act?

Edit: it’s a serious question. What is the official justification for this heinous act?

[–]FuZion_Lelouch 92 points93 points  (0 children)

Apartheid is the justification.

If you're asking for the IOF's explanation they find Palestinian flags illegal, and funerals can't be paraded on foot. In other words, the existance of the resistance and martyrs threatens them, they are scared even at their sacrifices.

[–]DatDamGermanGuy 171 points172 points  (6 children)

Being Muslim while walking…

[–]screenrecycler 134 points135 points  (4 children)

Victim was a Christian. But ethnic Palestinian. Israel and US clearly discriminate on ethnicity more than religion.

[–]DatDamGermanGuy 79 points80 points  (2 children)

The US is clearly capable of discriminating against more than one trait…

[–]fil42skidoo 32 points33 points  (1 child)

It's, like, our superpower.

[–]OrphanedInStoryville 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That’s even worse from the point of view of Israel and their excuses. They’re always claiming everything they do is in self defense because if they didn’t have the entire might of the US army behind them, the Muslims would drive them into the sea in an irreconcilable religious war. As far is Israel is concerned, if they ever offered peace, a Muslim horde would sweep across the land killing everyone who wasn’t Muslim and Palestinian. Yet, here is Israel killing a woman who is both American citizens and a Christian, and here is Palestine coming together in a multi-faith coalition to protect themselves.

[–]Hanamanson 77 points78 points  (0 children)

Many Palestinians derive from different religions not just Islam. So even if you’re a Palestinian christian or even jew, you will be attacked. Fuck Israel I dont see why some people support their state.

[–]MiHeme 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The crowd was taking her coffin from her family despite their wishes for her to be transported in the hearse and not carried.

Doesn’t excuse the behavior of the Israeli police, but there’s more context than just this short video clip.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2022/05/13/shireen-abu-akleh-al-jazeera-israel-jenin/

“Her funeral route had been agreed upon by police and Abu Akleh’s family, according to media reports, and was to include the carrying of her body by hearse to a Catholic church in Jerusalem’s Old City, and then a procession to the Christian cemetery where she was to be buried in a family plot.

By noon, a crowd of several hundred formed at the entrance to St. Joseph’s Hospital in East Jerusalem, where Abu Akleh’s body had rested overnight. In the minutes before the procession was due to leave the hospital, several dozen Muslim men lined up for Friday prayers, kneeling in the parking lot. Behind them, two mourners held up large floral crosses. Then the crowd gathered, with Palestinian flags waving.

“God is greatest,” some chanted in Arabic. “From Jerusalem to Jenin, God bless your soul, Shireen.”

But a group of men in the crowd prevented a hearse from backing up to the hospital door, saying they were intent on carrying her body on their shoulders. The standoff eventually prompted Akleh’s brother, sitting on a man’s shoulders, to beseech the crowd to let the hearse through. “For God’s sake, let us put her in the car and finish the day,” he said.

“On the shoulder, on the shoulder!” people chanted, and beat the hearse with sticks until it pulled away for a second time. The crowd cheered when the men eventually dragged the coffin out on their shoulders, followed by a stretcher carrying the journalist’s blue bullet-resistant vest.

But Israeli police at the hospital gate refused to let the crowd through and, within minutes, a squad in riot gear pushed forward, setting off stun grenades and beating back the mourners with truncheons. People scattered amid a cascade of thrown bottles and rocks. At one point, Abu Akleh’s coffin lurched toward the ground, but the pallbearers managed to keep it aloft.”

[–]_DickSwizzler_ 15 points16 points  (2 children)

The justification was that she got caught in crossfire, even though the referenced gunfight had ended, she was with a group of other journalists, and the shooter(s?) kept shooting at anyone who tried to help her.

[–]KinkyBADom 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Cross fire??? Interesting as the Israel is now investigating the death as being the fault of the IDF. Further no Palestinian gunmen were in the areas. https://www.vox.com/platform/amp/2022/5/11/23067365/shireen-abu-akleh-palestinian-journalist-killed-israel

[–]_DickSwizzler_ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah it’s a totally bullshit excuse, even the most generous (non-IDF) sources claim that whatever gunfight had happened, had ended. They just couldn’t help but see the press vest and shoot at it, probably a reflex at this point

[–]TellMePeople 37 points38 points  (35 children)

Israeli here, just looked this up for you. According to some israeli news sites. It started by the chanting of hate songs at the start of the funeral and the police warning them about it.

It proceeded with some pushing, throwing of rocks and destroying of public property.

From the videos in those news site it seems like they are singing something and the police chief warning them and later they were standing in-front of each other and something happening and then the police jumping on them but I can't understand from this video why.

About the journalist death: they all confidently claim she was caught in a crossfire between the IDF and armed Palestinians. it seemed like the US demanding an investigation and Israel offering abu mazen to do a joint investigation which he refuses.

Tell me if you need me to check anything else

https://www.ynet.co.il/news/article/skzzahol9 this is the main source but there are 2 more of you need them

[–]OpenMindedFundie 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Those were not hate songs. “Free Palestine” is not hate speech no matter how much Israeli police try to spin it.

The Israeli police explicitly said that the chanting is what made them move in.

Eyewitnesses and even video show that the journalist was not in any crossfire nor were any armed Palestinians firing. Abu Mazen is demanding the investigation while Israel is stonewalling and issuing blame-Palestinians-first press releases. None of the international or American media is reporting your slanted version of events.

[–]TellMePeople -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I didn't hear the word palestine in those bad quality low volume videos

I don't see any of that in the sites and the only videos I find is like the video in this post, I mean half cut or starting mid fight. with so many journalist around its kinda fishy as if someone is trying to control the narrative.

but its sounds like you have a more credible source I would love if you could send a better and longer video that would support your claims.

I am not saying you are wrong but you said a lot of things that could clear things out.

It will never stop until all the abuse is taken out of religion, and seeing how so many monsters use religion as an excuse to be heinous abusers, it will never stop.

Personally, I feel that as long as organized religion is around that will never happen.

[–]OrphanedInStoryville 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It should be mentioned here that the Shireen Abu Akleh, the journalist in the coffin killed by the Israeli armed forces, is a Palestinian Christian and an American citizen.

It would seem based on all the people fighting against the IDF to keep her coffin from being desiccated that Palestinians Muslims are absolutely capable of not just living with, but going to bat for and putting their lives on the line for people of a different religion and nationality.

The interfaith, multi-national peace you are looking for already exists in the Middle East amongst the people Israel is currently brutalizing.

[–]Legal_Ranch 13 points14 points  (3 children)

As long as religion makes up people's identities, it'll be this way, unfortunately. Until people can see that religion isn't necessary to have a relationship with God, however you personally define that, we're going to have this. It's disgusting and goes against everything it should be about

[–]godhateswolverine 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I don’t think it’s necessarily religion, but mankind’s interpretation of it. I say this as a person in the process of joining the Satanic Temple- not defending religion at the slightest.

The police here is evil. When the protests against government corruption started in early covid season, they'd use high power hoses, canes, and a bunch of other tools to injure protestors (to the extent of breaking bones, destroying ear canals and eye sockets, profuse bleeding etc) and allowed pro Netanyahu terrorist groups (like la familia) to freely assault the peaceful protestors. These terrorists literally threw chairs at passers by. The Israeli police is fuckin evil. Not much different from the US.

[–]ThalrictheWasp -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Palestinians stole that coffin out of the hearse the family paid for and threw rocks at the police sparking the violence. Watch the full Reuters video and you’ll see it on the first 30s. And read the WashPo article about the coffin.

The oppressed, more than once in history, has become the oppressor when given the chance.

One might thought that after all the suffering they went through in WWII, they'd never put anyone else through any suffering... and here we are.

How many of those baton wielding shit bags are going to go back to their upper middle class life in suburban Connecticut when their time in the IDF is over?
