What are your thoughts on Hamas using civilians as human shields and Hamas' rockets launching from civilian areas? I always hear this from pro-Israelis and it hurts my head lol



In justifying Operation Pillar of Defense, which led to the massacre of 102 Palestinian civilians including 28 children, Israel alleges that Palestinian civilian casualties were the direct result of Hamas using civilians as “human shields”. The argument is further expanded to justify the destruction of civilian buildings and infrastructure across the Gaza Strip including bridgeshospitalsmedia buildingsschoolsgovernment buildingsUN Headquartershomes,police stationsrefugee campsfarmsfootball fields, and more. All of these locations are considered legitimate targets of the IDF according to Israel’s claims that Hamas hides behind civilians because of the likelihood of their harm.Not only are these claims false, but it is the opposite that is true. It is the Israeli soldiers who are using civilians as “human shields” and endangering the lives of innocent Palestinians. A practice that wasn’t banned in Israel until 2005. This was true during Operation Cast Lead, and it remains true to this day. The “human shield” myth is nothing more than propaganda used to demonize Israel’s enemies and excuse their massacre of innocent Palestinians.


Also due to Hamas being in charge of the Gaza Strip, many things are affiliated with Hamas. Which means Israel can easily target government buildings or social services.

Rania Khalek writes, “This unchallenged, loose definition has enabled Israel’s war architects to widen the definition of legitimate targets to include civilians and civilian infrastructure, including, mosques, schools, hospitals, banks, electricity lines and residential homes, all of which have been targeted. 


Why single out Israel? Because Israel is the only serial human rights abuser that enjoys consistent and enthusiastic support by all the liberal democracies of the North.

This support gives the Israeli state an impunity that Iran, Sudan, Zimbabwe or Burma, to name but four, do not enjoy because their human rights abuses are all—rightly and however unprincipled—attacked by the major powers.

Israel alone is allowed to commit war crimes and crimes against humanity; it alone is allowed to repeatedly ignore United Nations resolutions without any opposition from northern governments and major institutions.



‘Why Israel only’ is tired and hypocritical

This is so important. No one is saying Israel is the only state to ever commit human rights abuses, but it is unique in enjoying support for those human rights abuses [from most of powerful states] by painting itself, the oppressor, repeatedly as the victim.

My dog pulled a dork move; she thought the sliding door was open so she ran through the net and broke the screen door. I don’t know whether to laugh my ass off or be upset that I have to replace it
