Free Gaza - Part 1 by Delt4 Free Gaza - Part 1 by Delt4
Part 2 is here.

I don't know how many of you understand what's going on in Gaza at the moment, but it disgusts me, I feel sick just thinking about it. Here in Australia, so many people are either:

A. Unaware
B. Aware, but choosing to ignore it.
C. Aware, acknowledging it but refusing to take a stance.

I don't think people fully comprehend the circumstances and that's part of the problem - so I'm hoping this will help to clarify.

Approximately 1.5 million Palestinians are (essentially) trapped in Gaza, which is about 360 square kilometres in size. To put this into perspective - Wagga is more than 10 times as large (4,800 square kilometres) and our population is around 55,000. The Australian population is around 20 million.

1,500,000(4,800 ÷ 360) = 20,000,000

Imagine the entire Australian population crammed into Wagga - that's how severe the situation is.

It's pretty ridiculous when the Israelis claim that they were only retaliating to the Palestinian terror attacks - I don't suppose they considered that by making 5 million Palestinians (1.5 million in Gaza alone) refugees, they probably deserved to be attacked.

Someone wrote, "Only a Nazi would use overwhelming military might against fire crackers and then use propaganda to play victim."

It's a cruel irony really, that following World War II and the Holocaust, the Jews are essentially doing to the Palestinians what was done to them.

I hope this opens some peoples' eyes to the situation in Gaza.

(If you want to use the poster you can, just credit me.)

As an American, what disgusts me the most is the far-right pretending that Israel is completely blameless. While I think that Hamas is by far the largest agitator in this mess, Israel is far from innocent, and it's depressing to watch David Brooks, Charles Krauthammer, Steve Huntley, et al, rush to defend Israel like it was some sort of holy obligation.

Of course, to those folks, it very well might be.

i read an article recently that pointed out the marketing genius of trotting out teutonically named dorks like krauthammer and kristol when it comes to blind support of israel. david brooks is depressing in general because you can tell the guy is smart and just chooses to be a center-right dingus.

in any case, a very nice piece for the message and quite professional looking to boot.

There's plenty of reasons besides ethnicity to dislike Krauthammer and Kristol. They can't help being German (or Jewish or whatever). It's never a good thing to bring someone's ethnicity or race into the discussion.

I know, the entire thing is just ridiculous. People seem to forget that while Hamas is attacking Israel, Israel is retaliating harder and killing thousands of innocent civilians. Nobody would be attacking Israel if Israel hadn't made refugees of millions of Palestinians.
