When that plane went down…fingers pointed to Russia immediately and it took a matter of 2 days before talk of sanctions went down. Was there an investigation? Better yet, was there a vote for an investigation? Nope. Israel has gone on a rampage in Gaza and the UN put forth a VOTE to investigate. Seriously? Not even a vote regarding taking action…but a vote to INVESTIGATE? We know who is killed and who is being killed. We have live footage. We have news anchors from around the world reporting facts and figures. We see it all. But we have to investigate WHAT exactly? That vote went down with most in favor of investigation, some abstaining and only USA saying no. So what became of that investigation? Who is out there investigating? Are they waiting for another couple thousand to die in Gaza? Or waiting for everything there to be obliterated before they go in and investigate? I’m disgusted by the world we live in.

Gaza is cut off under siege because when Israel withdrew from that land, some of the Palestinians who moved in used Gaza as a launching pad for rockets and suicide attacks towards Israel. How is Israel supposed to take down the blockades and let these people in freely? Especially now that Hamas, whose charter mandates the total destruction of Israel, is part of the government there?
Me:

Thank you for this question. I hope it will initiate meaningful dialogue. 

As I understand, the blockade is to prevent certain materials from getting in that could be used to build rockets. But, currently, the blockade also stops people from going in or out. Also, on the pretext of preventing certain materials from going in, Israel is restricting a lot more. It could simply be a means to dry out Gaza. They can’t trade, they can’t go in and out, they have no rights and are treated as second class citizens and they have no freedom. How are 2 million people being punished for the crimes of any organization? I am not for any organization that condones terrorism but Israel was placing restrictions on Gaza and attacking them before Hamas was even formed. Hamas isn’t even twenty years old…but how long has this conflict been going on? Way before that. In a video I saw the other day, Netanyahu is questioned about whether he believes Palestine has a right to a separate state. He responded very clearly, “no, I don’t think it does.” Do you believe that this mass slaughter and genocide is justified on the pretext of attacks from an organization that was only formed BECAUSE Israel was attacking? I don’t.

No, but that’s not what he’s really asking. The real question here is “does me seeing the Star of David as a Satanic symbol make me an asshole”, and the answer to that question is “Yes. Yes it does”.

When a flag starts to represent a movement that targets innocent men, women and children, seeing it as satanic doesn’t make one an asshole. It makes one logical.

You do realize there’s a 2 millennium history of calling that symbol satanic right?

Calling the Jewish star “Satanic” is literally Anti-Semitic. So is blood libel.

Try reading. It said satanic “symbol” not that the star itself is satanic.

"Look I’m not saying that Jews are literally Satan. I’m just saying that the symbol for Judaism has started to represent an oppressive movement because I said so, and therefore is starting to look satanic. I’m basically just saying your religious "symbol" is looking like a Satanic "symbol" and I don’t see why you have to be so upset about it"

The symbol for Judaism is on a flag. That flag is what Netanyahu stands by as he sentences hundreds of thousands to death. Even Jews I’ve met say they are ashamed of what their flag stands for. And FYI, I know plenty of Jews that DO NOT associate with Israel’s flag as Israel is NOT their home. They appreciate that symbol, not that flag.

You’ve just contradicted yourself. Yeah, the Star of David is not the same as the Israeli flag, the Israeli flag just contains the Star of David. You posted some disgusting, ignorant, anti-Semitic bullshit. Accept that and admit you were wrong. If you can’t separate Israel’s actions from the entire Jewish people, you need to look at your thought processes. Because they’re faulty.

Tell me why Jews who are against the war in Gaza are burning the Israeli flag then. Hundreds of thousands of Jews. Are they anti Semitic? No. They get the association between the flag and Zionism. They burn that flag even as they have the Star of David hanging on a chain around their neck. Google it.
