Why Do I Tear Down the Zionist "Kidnapped" Posters?

Posted on the 02 December 2023 by Doggone

The short answer is that this is really crappy hasbara.

Tear Down Zionist I wouldn’t use your link since I don’t want to be infected with spyware. Israel and its supporters have a serious credibility problem.
It’s insensitive since you are focusing on the Israeli captives of the Palestinian Freedom Fighters. And you show a lot of ignorance here.  Not all of the « kidnapped » Israelis were taken by Hamas. Some were taken by Islamic Jihad and other groups. Unlike Palestinians who are held captive by Israelis, the ones taken to Gaza were well treated.
Additionally, IDF was responsible for most of the 1,400, which is a figure that was later revised to 1,200 dead Israelis. You might want to look up the Hannibal Directive.  I’ll give even more references at the end of this.
I will add that IDF’s carpet bombing of Gaza was responsible for the deaths of at least 50 of those hostages.Toss in that Hamas was offering to return the Israeli prisoners early on in this crisis. Anyway, only 17 Israelis are still in Palestinian captivity. So, This poster is counterproductive to your cause.
The best way to bring the Hostages home is to bring about a ceasefire instead of genocide. Yes, this is genocide and it is being broadcast, which is why your hasbara is failing. You need to stop lying that you are "defending" when you are an occupying force. The Palestinians are within their rights to resist you.
You lose your credibility to say "never again" when you commit and support genocide.

Far more Palestinians have been killed than Israelis in this confilict. These Palestinians are non-combatants. (source
"Several of the sources, who spoke to +972 and Local Call on the condition of anonymity, confirmed that the Israeli army has files on the vast majority of potential targets in Gaza — including homes — which stipulate the number of civilians who are likely to be killed in an attack on a particular target. This number is calculated and known in advance to the army’s intelligence units, who also know shortly before carrying out an attack roughly how many civilians are certain to be killed. »
“Nothing happens by accident,” said another source. “When a 3-year-old girl is killed in a home in Gaza, it’s because someone in the army decided it wasn’t a big deal for her to be killed — that it was a price worth paying in order to hit [another] target. We are not Hamas. These are not random rockets. Everything is intentional. We know exactly how much collateral damage there is in every home.”

Israel is actually very weak. I believe that the Palestinian Freedom Fighters have been inflicting serious damages to the IDF. Of Course, IDF helps raise the body count with its poor performance. The Hanibal directive embodies the spirit of Masada.
You seem to miss that your tactics have been counterproductive for 75 years. They have only resulted in increased violence. These tactics will not make Israel safe. They haven't so far. In fact,  Israeli aggression is pretty much its death warrant.
Israel is its own worst enemy. It has basically painted itself into a corner where the only real option is the end of its existence as a ethnically pure state. Allowing Palestinians their rights will be the end of the game.

You've lost the war. I hope the US stops giving Israel aid and the country will collapse. As is, it's deeply terminal and on life support.

Otherwise, why haven't you made the Aliyah? A little Jewsplainin' from Ilan Pappe

And don't forget to thank Israel!
