What the hell am I even reading. The general understanding of the situation there, of what’s going on, what has been going on for more than 50 years, is absolutely braindead. Even some pro-Palestine people seem to only have a vague understanding of the genocidal settler-colonial project that Zionism is. This isn’t really something problematic. Just wanted to point this out first.
The rest is just absolute garbage. I am 100% sure discussions on these topics on mainstream social media are astroturfed at least to some extent. There is a fair share of people calling Hamas terrorist. But the biggest stumbling block is the […] moderate.
I have seen people blaming the conflict on religion. Like the war is two hoards of religious zealots fighting over scriptural differences. It is very clear that the number of people of who are historically illiterate about the history of colonialism and imperialism over the past two centuries is dangerously high. This problem is intentionally manufactured by the media. If you read the coverage in mainstream outlets it leaves a lot to be desired, to say the least.
Sorry for the incoherent rant. I usually don’t get hung up on social media but it struck a chord this time.
