Growing up I was fed one sided propaganda. If we want to live out our values we have to seek the truth.
This is exactly why I subscribed.
We cannot erase the facts and as uncomfortable as they are, we must remember that we are NEVER hearing the entire story.
Thank you for reminding me of what isn’t being said.
I'd never unfollow or unsubscribe, because I disagree with a view as long as that view is expressed in a way that is neither cruel nor purposefully bigoted.
I unfollowed a substack once because I felt the writer's views were overtly homophobic.
That said, here's my very different take on the situation, which I posted on another site that came to the same POV as yours.
Don't conflate "Palestinians" with "Hamas."
The Palestinian people have been so evilly served by their Hamas leaders who care only about staying in power and care nothing for the people they lead. Hamas is a terrorist kelptocratic government. The Palestinians ought to be staging a revolution against their government. But they won't and so now Israel will have to do it.
That is a well thought out post considering the urgency of the situation. Thank you Joshua
Thank you so much for your bravery and insight, comrade.
