America’s media and political class is analyzing, debating, and shaping a narrative in Gaza that’s entirely different from the one being discussed in Israeli media and among Israeli political leaders. This gap, born from casual racism, deliberate credulity, and reflexive alignment with the US government’s party line, is creating a media failure the likes of which we haven’t seen since the run-up to the Iraq War.

Israel is engaging in massive population transfers and attempting to depopulate Gaza, and everything it does must be understood through this lens. The Israeli government has explicitly said this from the beginning, starting with an evacuation order for North Gaza on October 13. No exceptions.

    I feel like it is understood through that lens by the people that care to read up and be informed about the world. I just don’t know what can be done, usa will never drop support for Isreal. Plain and simple.

    Excluding dumbasses that try to justify zionist Isreal in their genocide of women and children, and vice versa for hamas supporters and praising the october massacre. I feel like the rest of us hate it but it really feels like a catch 22 situation where there will be no good outcome.

    Just like American politics, I look at the situation and I see no “side” to objectively be on. And just like our current system, it appears it’s going to get a whole lot worse before it gets any better.

      That scrap of land has not seen peace since the paleolithic, it’s through where most of the first Homo apes came from Africa and spread over the world, and everyone writing down their particular beliefs about whose land it is for future generations to read, has pretty much cemented it as a cursed land for as long as there are people left on the planet.

      What “could” be done, would be to evacuate everyone, then nuke the whole area and make it unlivable for a while… maybe re-nuke it every 10 years for good measure, turn it into something like the Olympics, only for all countries in the world to show off their WMDs… but I still wouldn’t be surprised to see the same factions in hazmat suits getting back to killing each other in the interim.

      PS: maybe call it “The Armageddon Games”, that could gain some support 😒
