"You don’t have to like what Israel is doing to abhor Hamas. Arguably, Israel and Fatah are morally equivalent. Both have a lot of right on their side. Hamas, on the other hand, doesn’t have a shred of it."

Important points. Accurate points.

"Even on their worst day, the Israelis act with greater care and compassion and self-criticism than Muslim combatants have anywhere, ever."

Sam Harris (the Godless neuroscientist) accurately sums up all of my feelings about the Gaza conflict. Perfectly.

I find it incredibly insulting how every idiot with a Facebook or Tumblr account becomes a member of the UN General Council when Israel retaliates against Hamas. Posts go from cats and GIFs to the most uninformed outrage about how Israel is terrorizing Palestinian citizens and should be condemned.

There is a fundamental ethical, moral chasm between these two groups, and if you’re on the side of Hamas, then you are an actual Nazi (Note: Recognizing that Hamas is evil does not make Israel right by default. Seriously, read the article).

I’m gonna go ahead and say that’s a false premise.
