Apologists for Hamas ignore the terrorist group’s role in terrorizing Palestinians, absconding with aid intended for civilians and using civilians as human shields, a war crime.
In demanding Israel “free Palestine,” these apologists ignore that Israel withdrew entirely from Gaza and has periodically attempted to trade land for peace with the Palestinians.
The refusal to differentiate between bloodthirsty terrorists and the Palestinian people does nothing to help the latter. If Palestinian supporters truly want to improve the lives of ordinary Palestinians, blaming Israelis for their own massacre is as counterproductive as it is morally warped.
