Q:would you mind explaining the problem with the wonder woman thing to me? not that i don't see it as a problem i'm just not very up on current events & the post as a whole kind of confused me. i'm sorry to bother you!
Basically Israel is slaughtering people in Palestine and the actress playing Wonder Woman is supporting that because she’s Israeli/of Israeli descent? I’m not 100% sure on the reasons there but Israel is committing war crimes and she’s showing support for it is the thing you should take away from that.
So here’s the deal. You’ll either see Jews for Israel in this kind of thing or Jews who are silent about it. Almost never will you see those that are like ‘Israel is committing genocide’ because even if we don’t like the current government there, they are still Jews and there aren’t enough of us around to go hating one another. So even Jews who absolutely hate what is going on are still going to take as neutral a stance as possible because we’re pretty much the only people actually supporting this country, and we aren’t going to let it go because there’s still the original zionism, the dream of a country where Jews don’t fear discrimination existing somewhere, even though the whole deal has been horribly perverted over the last half-century. Thus, we want to believe that Hamas (a terrorist organization, according to Canada, Jordan, the EU, Egypt and Japan, as well as the obvious Israel and US) is using Palestinians as human shields, and really hoping that Israel isn’t indiscriminately killing people.
As for the actual image we’re talking about, she’s praying for IDF soldiers because every Jewish man in Israel has mandatory military service, regardless of whether they actually want it. So, again, it’s less that we have a thirst for Palestinian blood and more that we don’t want Jews to die. I still think it’s fucking terrible that we consider our own people more important than Palestinians (you’ll see Netanyahu apologizing every single time an IDF soldier gets injured but saying nothing about a Palestinian child). I hate this whole thing, I think what Israel is doing is abhorrent and I wish the Likud party weren’t in power (fun fact, Israeli politics is basically a pissing match between right-wing Jerusalem and left-wing Tel Aviv; right-wing Likud is really only in charge because there are a lot of pro-war parties to coalition with) but despite hating everything Israel is doing I still can’t bring myself to speak against them without saying ‘but Hamas is also doing shitty things’ because I feel like I can’t be completely against Israel because I don’t think we’ll get another shot at this whole ‘country that’s completely safe for Jews’ thing if this one doesn’t work out (right now it’s not, but we still have a chance to fix it). The thing to take away here though is that even the IDF soldiers are being forced to do what they’re doing and she’s praying for them
I’m 100% sure you’re not gonna agree with what I said here, but hopefully this helps explain her reasons.
