Trending on Twitter: #SupportGaza.
A quick scan through the comments reveals both hate and cluelessness.
Accusing Israel of genocide is so wrong.
#SupportGaza should read #SupportTerror.
It is terrible that civilians are being killed and wounded, caught in the crossfire.
Blame Hamas for using them as human shields.
Blame Hamas for putting missiles in schools.
Rush Limbaugh offered some needed perspective this afternoon.
RUSH LIMBAUGH: Think back when you were in either grade school or high school. Remember that time that you opened the door to the janitor's office and saw the forty surface-to-air missiles that were being hidden in there? Do you remember when that happened when you were in school?He's absolutely right.
No, obviously you don't because there weren't any surface-to-air missiles in your school!
Well, there are surface-to-air missiles being hidden by Hamas in their schools. It's one of the techniques to keep them from being found and, also, to prevent them from being targeted.
Before joining in the #SupportGaza movement, meaning Support Hamas, you must read the Hamas charter.
1.) Hamas isn’t looking to negotiate a peace deal with Israel. It wants to destroy Israel. Quoting Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna, the charter reads:Are all those tweeting #SupportGaza aware of this stuff?
“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”2.) Actually, Hamas’ charter goes beyond destroying Israel. It longs for Jewish genocide:
“The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: ‘The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.’”3.) The international community may love the peace process, but Hamas makes it clear in its charter that it doesn’t believe in peace conferences. As its charter states:
“Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement.”
The fact is one side of this conflict is interested in genocide, and it's not Israel.
