Someone using the name Joanna Pardue posted tried to post the following comment to a post on anti-Israel hated:
If it’s okay to kill Palestinian women and children – [collective punishment]
then it’s okay to kill Jewish women and children – outside Israel.
If a few bombs go off in Jewish daycare centers around the world… this conflict will CEASE –
Diaspora Jews will then have some skin in the game… and stop financing the genocide.
I deleted her comment from the moderation cue since in my opinion it violates the comment policy. However sunlight is still the best disinfectant and hate filled comments like Ms. Pardue’s need to see the light of day so that they can be addressed.
Ms. Pardue civilian casualties are an unfortunate reality of war, the Israelis do everything humanly possible to avoid or minimize civilian casualties. They are however locked in battle with terrorist groups like Hamas who intentionally use the civilians as human shields ensuring they will be caught in the cross-fire.
Hamas on the other hand deliberately targets Israeli civilians with indiscriminate rocket and mortar fire.
There is no moral equivalence between the two… Attacks like you’re calling will not end the conflict, they will intensify it. The international community will no longer be able ignore or rationalize the actions of terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah.
