and can you honestly say that Hamas isnt a problem at all? can you even pretend like they care about palestinians?
You’ve memorized your common Zionist “arguments”, but your choice of words/wording betrays how little you know what you’re talking about.
First of all, is Israel an example of ethnic cleansing? I don’t know, check this map out:
Despite all the Jewish immigrants from Europe fresh off the boat, not a single area in mandatory Palestine had a Jewish majority. How do you think Israel suddenly has a Jewish majority? Have you ever heard of the Nakba of 1948? Or the Naksa? Plan Dalet? Are you not aware that the Palestinians are the largest refugee population on the planet?
Second of all: “There are 22 Muslim nations”. You’re conflating Arab with Muslim. Not all Muslims are Arabs, and not all Arabs are Muslim. Even if there were 500 Arab countries, that wouldn’t matter. Arabs aren’t interchangeable. We’re talking about hundreds of millions of people spreading from the Atlantic to the Persian Gulf. Palestinians have their own culture, traditions and history. Just like the Lebanese, Syrians, Iraqis..etc. Lumping up all Arabs as interchangeable is typical erasure, and is pretty racist.
I won’t defend the expulsion of the Jewish populations from some Arab countries, but you have to understand that it was a reaction to the expulsion of the Palestinians, not the other way around. In a perfect world, after Palestinian refugees return home to full compensation, the same should happen with the Jewish population as well.
You want to live autonomously? That’s your right. But not at my expense. Your rights end where my rights begin. Who do you think you are that your own self determination and autonomy is more important than mine? How can you reconcile solving your problem at my expense?
How can you sleep at night, knowing that to end your diaspora, you started another peoples diaspora?
How can you justify robbing a people of a state so you can have your own? Unless on a certain level, you believe you are more deserving. Unless you believe that you are better. And that’s the logic of Zionism. A racist colonial ideology.
Like I said in previous asks, about a third of Israelis and Palestinians now support a one state scenario, and it’s rising. Especially as the discourse becomes more mainstream, and the settlements spell the doom of any two state resolution. Want to be realistic? Can’t get more real than that. That’s where we’re headed, like it or hate it.
As for the Hamas bit. This is so transparent, you literally just called us interchangeable with all other Arabs, and the subtext of your ask basically told us to just “suck it up”. But now, you suddenly care about the Palestinian population when it comes to roasting Hamas. We’re not a prop for you to use in your arguments.
Second of all, Israelis and pro-Israelis love to talk about Hamas as if it’s the devil, and the true problem messing everything up. This is not true at all, but for arguments sake, let’s say that Hamas is indeed the source of all evil right now..
Hamas was founded in 1987.
So..why was there no peace before then? You love to blame the rockets. The rockets are not even 12 years old. How about before that?
You never once ask yourself, why some Palestinians feel that Hamas is needed. Do you know what the acronym Hamas stands for? It’s the Islamic Resistance Movement. That means that they are a symptom of something, they were created in response to something. That something is Israeli expansionism, settler colonialism and a brutal long running occupation.
I could seriously write entire posts about just one of these myths Zionists love to spread. Anyone who knows anything about the history of the situation can see right through them. Useless appeals to emotion and manipulation. But..I’ve already clogged up everyone’s dashes so I’ll stop.
