One Historical Atrocity Does Not Excuse Another One

Now Israel is using white phosphorus, a chemical weapon, in its attacks against refugee camps. If this sounds familiar, it's because the US did it a couple years ago in Fallujah.

White phosphrus is classified as a chemical weapon and therefore is banned by the UN convention against these weapons. Guess which 2 countries haven't signed on?

Details of the accusations and evidence:

Score: Israeli casualties from 9 months of Hamas rockets: +/- 12.

Palestinian casualties from Israel's most recent attack: 850+ and rising.

See the links below for sources.

Is it anti-Semitic to say this is fucking insane?

I don't care. I'll say it anyway: this is fucking insane. One historical crime does not excuse another one.

i dont understand how a nation inhabited by people who have been oppressed for thousands of years feel just in there oppression and degredation of the rightful inhabitants of a country it is just insane.
then again my home country was founded by a people who felt oppressed, and so fled there native land only to commit genocide on the shores of the new world...
i suppose its easy for people to feel they are in the right no matter how crazy that may be.
man and monster and monster and man
never shall we tell the two apart.
