Sorry, but this is pious, hand-wringing bullshit. Dropping bombs on crowded neighbourhoods that you’ve turned into open-air prisons is NOT a fucking celebration of life.
And about that Hamas-uses-civilians-as-human-shields thing: Yeah, they store weapons close to where civilians live. No shit. Under Israel’s apartheid blockade, Gaza is one of the most densely populated areas on earth. Where are the civilians going to go? There’s no safe place. And even if there were, it wouldn’t be safe for long, because Israel would bomb it anyway, and celebrate the slaughter with fucking tailgate parties.

“In my own lifetime, I have seen Jewish children thrown into the fire. And now I have seen Muslim children used as human shields, in both cases, by worshippers of death cults indistinguishable from that of the Molochites.
“What we are suffering through today is not a battle of Jew versus Arab or Israeli versus Palestinian. Rather, it is a battle between those who celebrate life and those who champion death. It is a battle of civilization versus barbarism.”
