My view is that Hating or criticizing IRI has nothing to with Gaza, not when 100000X help is being given to the side carrying out the actual genocide by the US government.
My view is that many Iranians are so increadibly ignorant, prejudices and Islamophobic that they feel like this is like a soccer match and they have to take sides with any asshole that opposes IRI. For them, politics is more important than humanity.
My view is that Israel is committing war crimes and genocide by any and all definitions of the words. Israel is engaging in deliberate action knowing civilians will be murdered but since it has support from the criminal Bush administration, it gets away with it. Israel clearly intends to punish Gazans, whom it considers less than human. Otherwise, it would treat them like humans.
However, no matter what side of the equation you are on and how deeply you resent Hamas or the Palestinians, or equally no matter how reflexively anti-Israel, or anti Zionist you are, isn't it reasonable to demand a cease fire at this point in time?
Can we at least use this as a point of unity? Cease fire? Stop the meat grinder that is killing children? Is that helping anybody? Is it helping to stop terrorism or to bring peace? Is it even hurting Hamas one bit?
Can we say we have at least this much in common? That we support an immediate cease fire right now?
The question is: Immediate Cease Fire, Yes or No?
