According to Israeli government figures, a fifth of the October 7th Israeli deaths were soldiers, mainly, and policemen (whom Israeli counts as part of its security force). This means a ratio of four to one, noncombatants to combatants.
For the first two months of retaliation, the ratio on Palestinian nocombatants to combatants was over ten to one. Since then, it has held steady at over five to one.
So, I ask, which is more barbaric, the upclose murder of civilians, or the remote bombardment of civilians? And this is not to mention the huge disparity in the over deathcounts: twenty times more in Palestine.
Once the counter-massacre began in earnest, I search for the word "Amalikite" since it is the most genocidal reference in the Old Testiment: indeed it one of the hundreds of commandment's that didn't fit on Moses' tablet. And sure enough, none other than Bibi himself was citing this biblical call to genocide.
I am fully on board with shutting down Hamas, they are no better than Bibi. I think it would be good if the ICJ would put Hamas on trial as well. But my main concern now is the hundreds of thousands, starving and freezing children in Rafah. It is time for extraordinary ACTION; https://aaron-tovish.medium.com/stop-and-drop-now-e6c8c4d2706b
