A Nuanced Approach to the Israeli - Hamas Conflict

 I have to believe there are many people struggling to come to terms with what’s going on in the Middle East with Israel and Gaza. It’s complicated, in that there are so many facets to this situation that aren’t readily apparent to most people - it includes the manipulation of information, natural resources, currency, and the ultimate goal for a centralized absolute authority. In simpler terms it’s about money and power. There is a determined push to dehumanize us all. Just as Hamas dehumanized the Israeli victims which they tortured, killed and raped - Hamas, the military industrial complex and many eagerly desire a dehumanized response from Israel of hate and anger. The censorship of information here has resulted in many people protesting against Israel, refusing and denying that Hamas did anything at all. Amazingly some protesters will outright argue that Hamas did not do what they did on October 7th and that it is just Israeli propaganda - or worse that Israel had it coming. Here’s some clips I found this evening from two guys I respect and like to watch occasionally. I wish everyone a Happy Hanukkah. I know it’s very difficult time.
