Assumed Audience: Anyone who cares.

Epistemic Status: Confident.

I’ve defended Israel before, but let me be clear: Hamas is a terrorist organization, they have committed war crimes, and Israel is fully justified to defend itself.

I don’t care if you think that Gazans are oppressed by Israel because Israel has a right to defend itself.

And if Gazans are oppressed, who is the oppressor? Israel, who has sent aid to Gaza? Or Hamas, who won’t even build bomb shelters for civilians and hides their military assets among civilians?

People like to talk about the “right side of history.” Terrorists are not. Period.
