What Israel is doing is monstrous and evil. A premeditated murder plot disguised as defense. To be clear, I am not saying Israel cannot defend itself, I am suggesting they are not defending themselves and that they are in fact terrorizing the Gazan population. Americans have a special duty in denouncing this because it is American money and weapons that have helped create this situation and deal death to Palestinians. This is not defense – this is murder.
Minister of Home Front Defense Avi Dichter has stated, “there is no other choice, Israel must carry out a formatting action in Gaza, actually format the system and clean it out.” Like 1’s and 0’s on a hard drive, Palestinians are something to be erased, eradicated, and arranged in patterns pleasing to Israel. They are not humans, but corrupt data in the eyes of Israeli leaders.
