    If you think it's, BS, then you don't know what you are talking about.

    They haven't had control over their water, aren't allowed to build businesses that compete economically with Israeli businesses. They aren't allowed to arrest Israeli settlers that murder their families, but they can be arrested by Israeli forces.

    They've been evicted from their homes to make way for Israeli settlers, and the list goes on and on. Seriously, their resentment doesn't happen in a vacuum.

    I'm not suggesting any of that excuses the terrorism of Oct. 7th. But it does explain why they won't be grateful to the IDF.

    Stop parroting this nonsense.

    If they hadn't used all the water pipe material for rockets, maybe they would have done better with their water.

    What the hell are you even saying? Look at the history and laws and regulations passed over the decades. They weren't even allowed to drill new wells. They have only been allowed to control a percentage of the water.

    Seriously, they are just facts.

    Isn’t Gaza governed by a terrorist organization?

    I mean these guys are probably worse at governing than the Taliban

    I don’t know how to interpret this post other than you casting all of Gaza (not just political leadership and militant groups) as the enemy of Israel that must be wiped out (Hamas) or forced out (the Gazan people).

    Is this your meaning?

    I'm pretty sure only one video exists of the "water pipe" claim and it was Palestinian digging up old infrastructure that was unsalvageable from Israeli presence before 2005.

    Hamas sure has a large fleet of 2001 Toyota Tacomas
    You can put bombs, hostages and other terrorists in the bed and not worry about it breaking down

    Hamas must be wiped out, and it must be ensured that Israeli civilians are no longer threatened by rockets, suicide bombings, rape, murder. After the genocide of October 7, this should be understood without saying by any person with human decency. The current government of Gaza has already announced that they would keep trying to repeat October 7 again and again and again. Israel must eliminate this threat. What will be necessary to do so, I don't know. Any Gazans who are not a threat are not a problem, I would think. Can you say for sure who is not a threat? Are all those people celebrating raped women being paraded through the streets of Gaza a threat? You tell me.

    You are free to ignore all you wish. I no longer expect anything different.

    You are free to believe stories by people who rape women, kill gays and apostates and mass murder Jews.

    And Turkish president Erdogan said that Israel is a terrorist state.

    While terrorism has been casually applied around over the last twenty years, there is no question that killing of civilians for political aims fits the definition.

    Woke is woke breh

    There’s not a logic to it, it’s just victimization
    the Jeremy Lin fans started this for thinking he’s some kinda of victim and that racism broke his jumper which was broke already

    now the definition of victim is irrelevant

    The root of the conflict is Zionism. A nationstate of an ethnic minority (at the time and up to the fall of the Soviet Union) was created in an already inhabited land.
