Praying for Palestine
this is so scary :(
oh my god ???
That’s so funny because Gaza has been firing rockets into Israel on a regular basis since Israel handed over the Gaza strip in 2005! Weird how there’s no Tumblr post circulating about that!! How about don’t be ignorant and maybe take some history lessons before mindlessly reblogging propaganda :~)
In todays edition of “educating your ignorant dumb ass” part 15 of many to come
Lets begin with “Israel handed over the Gaza Strip” shall we?
Israel did not hand over the Gaza strip. In fact, lets start by addressing how the current Israel became the country it is now: Following the atrocities that occurred during World War II, the United Nations decided to divide the former fully Palestinian territory known as Palestine into an Arab state and a Jewish state - Palestine and Israel. In doing so they disproportionately allocated the lands giving the Palestinians a much smaller portion of land than the Zionites (Jewish nationalists). Consequentially, revolt occurred between the Palestinians and Zionites resulting in the Palestinians retreating into an even smaller portion of land than originally intended - the Gaza Strip.
So what happened to the Palestinians living within the Gaza Strip?
Well… Israel maintained extremely tight restrictions on trade throughout Gaza which lead to 54 percent of households facing food insecurity, 38 percent of Gazans living under the poverty line, and 40 percent of Gazans being unemployed.
Okay but what about the onslaught of Israelis by the Palestinians?
The Gaza War, which I assume you are referring to, occurred in January of 2009 as part of the Israeli ground invasion of Gaza to stop weapons smuggling into the Strip. What resulted was 13 Israeli deaths (3 from friendly fire) and 1,417 Palestinian Deaths which included 114 women and 431 children.
This is not propaganda. This is not unlawful bias. This is the hideous truth.
