We are not oppressors.

We are not oppressors, nor are we victims. Are we a much stronger army than them? yes. But you know what made us that? hard work, a reason to fight, a sense of justice. We refuse to be victims and now that means we must fight, for if we don’t we perish. Understood?

I’m done with people calling us crybabies with a victim complex. if not for the iron dome, we would all be dead. My grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, all of them. We aren’t crybabies, we just know where to focus our energy. Not on stupid propaganda, not on bitching to the media, but on how to target terrorists amongst civillians without hurting the civilians (There was a missile developed that’s roughly the size of maybe 3 of my fingers..?) and targeting specific people with accuracy. Sure, not perfect, but i’m tired of making this argument. I support Israel 400% and you know what else? I will say this as many times as I need to. I DON’T HATE MUSLIMS, I DONT HATE ARABS, AND NEITHER DO MOST ISRAELIS. 1/7th of our population is Arab. As long as they don’t bother anyone, we don’t mind. And they don’t. We’re more concerned with Hamas and once they’re gone, there will be peace and quiet. and TO THOSE WHO CALL ISRAEL’S ATTACKS ETHNIC CLEANSING, I think you need to look up the definition. Israel does not seek out Muslims, and they are allowed to practice within our country. Arabs have rights, and Palestinians were offered Israeli citizenship but refused, and some of these people still live in the country and bite the hand that feeds. Sure, we have our extremists, every group does, but I don’t see the IDF giving orders to “kill every muslim in existence.” They go for specific targets. Hamas and other terrorists group want to crush all ideals of the West: Democracy, freedom, separation of church (or mosque…?) and state. Israel is far from perfect but it is still a democracy, and it is fair. It’s not like the US or European countries are perfect either but still are far better places to live than most of the middle east. Do you want to know what a REAL genocide is? Beheadings of Christians, Jews, Homosexuals,etc. in Syria. ALSO, The reason (i never said it was the greatest reason) that Israelis have a harder time feeling bad for Gazan civilians is because their leaders tend to lie both to us and to their own people. Fake propoganda (anyone seen that image with that still from Final Destination 3 they used to say we kill children? yeah.), also the UN school incident. They claimed Israel fired on the school. They fired OUTSIDE of the school, not on the grounds, killed their two targets, but then the palestinians dragged them to the school and took photos pretending to mourn. they also placed a live girl…yes a LIVE girl next to them, having her pretend to be dead. I’ll find the article later but there’s too much proof.THERE ARE BLOODY DRAG MARKS IN THE PHOTO, PROVING THE MEN WERE DRAGGED INTO THE SCHOOL. Another reason is also that Gazans VOTED for Hamas. yup, their only real election. and they voted for Hamas. We have known they were a terrorist organization for years. this wasn’t newly discovered. I’m sure that these civillians could easily live in harmony with us (even if they didnt exactly LOVE us) if fucking Hamas was not elected. We have peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan and they’ve held up even if the two countries don’t exactly love us, and that is all we need. we don’t ask them to love us, we ask them to leave us be.

Hamas has wasted time and energy trying to destroy israel. Be it destroying the electrical plants that Israel GAVE THEM, or attacking humanitarian aid trucks, or Hamas leaders keeping all the money and supplies Israel gave to Gaza to BUILD THEIR CITIES AND LIVE IN A CIVILIZED SOCIETY and USED IT TO TAKE SEVERAL YEARS TO BUILD TUNNELS INTO ISRAEL AND OBTAIN WEAPONS. Hamas and those who voted for them have wasted SO much to kill us. It’s in their doctrine. it’s not hard to understand…which brings me to my next point…

 Israel was built up from sand. There wasn’t much there for them. It is now home to all sorts of technological advances. The technology behind almost every cellphone, Google, Waze, The Pillcam and many more were developed in a country smaller than fucking New Jersey….not to mention THEY’RE DEVELOPING A FUCKING CURE FOR EBOLAWe used our energy to be useful. Gaza could have been the same. Starting from almost nothing and building a state, but instead Hamas brainwashed it’s citizens (that didn’t hate us already might I add), and used us as a scapegoat (…ring a bell anyone? Hitler? blaming the Jews for Germany’s financial issues? no?….). The reason we look like “monsters” to stupid people is because Hamas is shit at fighting, but good at propaganda apparently.

I just want people who AREN’T Jews to understand this, and those who don’t need to study up. So far I only see other Jews standing up for Israel. But the rest of the world needs to understand this too. But regardless, I would rather have a country hated by many but is run successfully, than a second Auschwitz in it’s place.

SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT

So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time?  Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

I will never not reblog this

Exactly, and they think just boycotting a few things makes a difference. Big whoop. Unfortunately people who are so pro-Palestine or against Israel, don't actually know the history of the conflict and it's quite obvious, so convincing will be hard. The other majority of Pro-Israel either know the history and just hate Jews or they were taught wrong by people who hate Jews. Apparently doing your own research isn't acceptable with these people

"boycott bamba for humanitys sake" lol bitch bamba is delicious. and PEOPLE ARE REALLY STUPID BUT THEY ARE THE PEOPLE WHO THINK WE ARE STUPID AND IN POWER BUT THEY ARE…god this is confusing to explain…and think aout….but yeah.

I’ll take this one since I’m the blog’s resident Jew.  Oy vey, where do I start…

  • SJ community loves to police Jewish identity and silence actual Jews when they talk about their own identities.  This usually happens in context of either “Are Jews White?” or “Jewishness is just a religion” conversations.  In reality, Jews are an ethnoreligious group that ethnically originated in the middle east, and while some ethnic Jews have light skin, it’s actually due to centuries of forced assimilation in European and Slavic countries through rape, which is a big reason why Jewishness is matrilineal.  Furthermore, there exist Jews who do not look white at all.  There are black, brown, and asian Jews who are all ethnically Jewish, and these conversations erase them.
  • "Jewish privilege".  Fact: It’s not a thing.  It’s actually a very common anti-semitic trope that says that Jews run everything so they are not oppressed.  Jews are oppressed, and face anti-semitic violence.
  • "Anti-semitism is not just about Jews, there are other semitic people." While yea, there are other semitic people, the term "anti-semitism" was created by Germans in the 19th century to refer specifically to the hatred of Jews because it sounded more scientific.
  • Blaming anti-semitic violence in Europe on the actions of Israel.  I see this literally every single day on this site, and it’s very upsetting.  Jews that live in the diaspora are not responsible for Israel’s actions, and especially should not be suffering at the hands of white people in Europe under the guise of anti-zionism.  
  • Finally, and this is a big pet peeve of mine.  The only people I ever see reblogging posts about anti-semitism are other Jews.  Even a lot of my non-Jewish followers will reblog posts about racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. but ignore posts about anti-semitism, and that as a Jew makes me feel unsafe. 

That’s enough for now.  If you’re interested in learning more about Jewish identity and anti-semitism, you are welcome to check out my personal blog: yochevedke.  I discuss that stuff a lot.

Another Jew reblogging about anti-semitism. I’ve seen some increase in concern about this from goyim, but it’s been slow going. Hopefully we’ll pick up a big head of steam soon.

Isn’t goyim considered an offensive term?

If it’s not, you use the term ‘gentile’ in some posts. Isn’t that a less offensive version of the same word? Why not just use one of them and stick with it?

Neither is an offensive term. I use them interchangeably because they’re interchangeable. Do you never use synonyms?
