Well it isn't Palestinians as a whole that are called Terrorists but Hamas. Now there are some People saying some rather unsavory things about Palestinians as a whole but Hamas conducted an attack that has led to this current Chaos we see now. Ukraine was fighting back against an invading Russia Army while Hamas started some mess with an attack on Israelis that has turned into all out Chaos.

Apples to oranges. Not every Palestinian is part of the Hamas terrorist group, who invaded Israel and started this entire war of bloodshed.

Not a great example. As people have pointed out, it has more to do with terrorist cells of Hamas.

If you want to question a real double standard, then ask why when a mass shooter has a manifesto expressing right wing ideology, no matter how basic it is, it gets blared all around social media and news outlets and serves as an example of the evils of the right wing.

But when there is a left wing manifesto, expressing left wing ideas, it's hidden and suffocated by the media or in some cases, excused.

Because "terrorist" is a propaganda term used to describe any paramilitary group the American government doesn't like. if America likes a foreign paramiltary group then they refer to them as freedom fighters or rebels.

There is no palestine, the people in Gaza and West Bank are ethnic arabs or Egyptians. Israel caused the continuation of this conflict by allowing these people to stay in these areas. Should have built a hardened border around its entire conquered area immediately after the six day war and spent generations building a status quo of defending those borders but no outward aggression. The Ukraine situation is all western propaganda though. The US conducted a coups and interfered in elections…tossing out Russian-friendly government there….sat by as Zelenskyy targeted ethnic Russians in Ukraine, and trashed the Minsk accords. Corrupt elements in the west have used Ukraine as a money laundering agent and now as a proxy to steal a large portion of printed money sent into the conflict.

It's so sad but things may have just come to a culmination situation, after years. Hearing the number of bombs used already in such a short period of time, I'll say someone is certainly enraged.

Romans 10:9-13: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

They're called terrorists because they slaughter, rape, kidnap and humiliate people for being Jewish, not because they're fighting for a good cause.

Because Ukrainians are being invaded, unprovoked, by a foreign power.

Hamas, which operates with and from Palestine and Gaza, has the goal to terrorize, eradicate, and destroy Israel.

In fact, it's not even comparable.

@belando: unprovoked? Imagine the former USSR conducts a coups in Canada, gets the prime minister replaced with a pre-selected leader who works towards getting Canada into the Eastern bloc. The pro-soviet PM starts targeting ethnic Americans and becomes deeply involved in various corrupt monetary schemes with the USSR….also violates a pre-existing accord that promises Canada will not join the USSR. At that point America tries to negotiate with Canada and a preliminary solution is agreed upon by all parties until a Soviet official flies in and threatens Canada that they will withdraw support unless they trash the treaty. Not to mention Zelenskyy targeted antagonistic press and (post invasion) multiple times stated elections are suspended until an undisclosed date. There are no good guys here and this issue didn’t begin out of the blue when Russia invaded.

ter·ror·ist

a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims:
"four commercial aircraft were hijacked by terrorists" · "a suspected terrorist"

or

unlawfully using violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims:
"a terrorist organization" · "terrorist attacks"

-----------------------------------------------------

^Take a guess.

Anyone supporting the current actions of Hamas is garbage.

Anyone supporting the actions of anyone harming any amount of civilians and good people, regardless of belief or ethnicity, is also garbage.

@six-deuce: Truetrue. But imagine if regions of south Texas eventually were majority "Mexican" and "voted" to become part of Mexico. That doesn't give Mexico the right to take territory from the U.S.

@belando: ironically you are speaking to a Texan and your point is apt. The issue though is the US (CIA) interfered in the elections in Ukraine, and the regions of ethnic russian Ukrainians didn’t wish to split off until after they were targeted in attacks and made second class by Zelenskyy. I am not arguing Putin is in any way a good guy….just that it is a complex situation brought to a head mostly due to our interference. We even managed to piss off Germany and make ourselves look like idiots after blowing up the nordstream.

How old were you when you realized the US is a hypocrite?

Anybody who thinks this started on October 7 doesn't know what he's talking about or a dishonest person to try and make it appear as if Israel is "defending itself" by these warcrimes. It started from way before Hamas was a thing when the Zionists backed by Britain kicked the Palestinians out of their lands and occupied it in what is known as the Nakba. Years of expansion, oppression, racism, apartheid and killing of Palestinians in their own land naturally created hatred toward the Jews, not only in Palestine, but in the entire region. That is what led to Hamas. Prior to Israel, the Jews were more safe in the Middle East than they were in the West and came to Palestine as refugees escaping persecution with Palestinian passports. After Israel, they were rejected by every country in the region.

Also, Hamas didn't even come from Palestine. It is a branch of the larger Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, which the US supports.

And it is funny when someone says the Palestinians are Arabs when the current Jews are a mix of several different races that mostly have nothing to do with the ancient Israelites, nothing to do with the region, and nothing to do with each other.

Hamas are terrorists but the silent majority of Palestine supported Hamas so they are equally under the water and whatever Israel is doing is perfectly alright and is exactly how things should be done.
