But but but, Karma, isn't Israel at war with Hamas and therefore aren't the Gazans justified in shooting rockets at Israeli citizens?
The truth of the matter is that the Arabs have been warring against the Yishuv (the Jewish community in Palestine) since the Mufti started whipping up anti-Jewish hatred and riots in the 1920s.
It's all of a piece. It's been one long war and these never-ending rocket attacks are part of that war.
The only thing that is different now is that many on the left have actually come out in favor of this anti-Jewish violence.
They honestly think that Arabs have every right to try to kill Jews because the Jews are "racist, colonialist oppressors of the indigenous population."
It's nonsense, of course, but it will serve as a facile justification for the genocidal intentions of Hamas.
