The Situation in Gaza

If you haven't been looking at the situation in Gaza because it's too horrific, I feel for you. But the Palestinians are on the verge of being extinguished from existence. The Israeli government is determined to just take more and more and more, squeezing the life out of these people until they no longer exist so that Israel can have all of the land that they think they're entitled to.

This is genocide unfolding before our very eyes. It's not just the land-taking (though that has been horrible, blatant, and deadly), but now they're trying to kill the Palestinians through illness, both physical and mental.

Before you're all "no sources blerdibler," I already looked all of those up for you using the mighty power of quick Google searches.

Water

Electricity

Unemployement

Anemia

Freedom of movement

I couldn't find a source for 50% of kids expressing no will to live, but with all of the rest of the shit that's been happening to them, I find that statistic to be extremely believable.

This is genocide, pure and simple. Take away their clean water, make their kids sick and hopeless, leave them with no way to make a living and barely any electricity to do things like contact the outside world.

They'll all be dead or scattered without a homeland soon. That's what Israel wants and that's what the U.S. is helping them do.
