    He’s right on this one. We shouldn’t be supporting a government that kills civilians no matter how much they try to justify it with saying there were legitimate targets behind them.

      Often the excuse isn’t even “bad guys behind the civilians” it’s “probably bad guys somewhere sort of in the general area, but we didn’t actually check first”.

      Oh yeah, then there’s the “old lady trying to drag her dying mother into a church” those are always valid targets, apparently. As is the old lady’s mother before the whole being drug into a church thing.

      Dropping support for Israel is going to result in is more dead Israeli citizens, because Hamas sure as hell won’t stop attacking Israel just because Israel stops bombing them. Iran would laugh all the way to the bank where they would grab some more money to fund Hamas.

      The government of the Gaza Strip (Hamas) was behind an intentional attack on Civilians that prompted this whole mess.

      The government of Israel is intentionally attacking civilians in retaliation, mostly because those civilians are being used as human shields or are complicit with or supporting Hamas.

      The whole thing is shit, and likely will not be resolved until Iran or the US back down on their support and the other side pushes out whoever lost support.

      Edit: To all you idiots downvoting. Do you think Ukraine should jus give up territory to save civilian lives too? You’re being naive. There’s a reason why the governments of the western nations are still supporting these countries. These situations are a lot more important than you think for the balance of world power.

        Hey genius how many Israelis did hamas actually kill before October?

        The government of the Gaza Strip (Hamas) was behind an intentional attack on Civilians that prompted this whole mess.

        And that was where the story began. Don’t look any further into the past.

          People in that region have been killing each other for thousands of years.

          You want to look at historical attacks. There were entire Jewish cities in the wiped out a thousand years ago under the ottoman empire by Islamic citizens of the region.

          You want to talk with the big boys perhaps do your research before you spout off.

    Yesterday the same quote was posted, but instead of “on civilians” it was “killing Christians” (or something like that).

    Hot take scumbag. Who cares? Fuck the pope. His opinion means absolutely nothing. Every less-than-complete-shit-bag-of-a-human has already been saying this for years, without the delusional thinking that their opinion is somehow more special than everyone else’s.
