I hope you're right about the sharper edge, but the lack of context is still so bad.
As a tweeter reports:
"The reporting on BBCNews on Israel/Palestine implies that events started with “rockets from Gaza” and no mention of the preceding ethnic cleansing of East Jerusalem or the Israeli attack inside al-Aqsa Mosque (let alone wider issues)
This is not reporting. This is propaganda"
Scary to think that 50% of Gaza's two-million population are children.
Gazans are literally locked down in their enclave with nowhere to run: fish in a barrel.
I read a tweet from a Gazan saying she's moved her kids into her bedroom at night because if they get bombed during the night night she'd prefer the whole family get taken out at once, rather than run the risk of kids surviving and having to struggle on their own.
On the good news side, you can still visit Israel for the holidays, because Israel is fully vaccinated and is on the official Green List.
Best to avoid Gaza while you're there, though, because aside from the unrest, they've not been offered vaccines yet
Caitlin Johnstone is on fire on twitter at the moment:
"A nation that cannot exist without nonstop warfare is not a real nation, it's an ongoing military operation that happens to have suburbs."
"You don't get to drop an entire colony on top of an inhabited country, grind those inhabitants into the dirt for generations, and then claim self defense every time they retaliate. That's not a thing."
