We mentioned this tweet by journalist Sulome Anderson yesterday in a post about the media’s biased coverage of the violence in Gaza, but it really deserves the spotlight:
Imagine the desperation it takes to walk into live gunfire from the Middle East's most powerful fighting force, armed with nothing more than rocks & the occasional Molotov or grenade. Try to conceive of the circumstances that could drive so many human beings to such an act. #Gaza

Sorry, we’re still trying to conceive of how someone could be so dismissive of Molotov cocktails or grenades. Or try to gin up sympathy for people whose stated objective is to kill as many Jews as possible.

modern day Ghandi with their grenades. That's the Seinfeld "Yada, Yada, Yada,.." equivalent of terrorism.

People that shrug off Molotov cocktails & grenades as no big deal would probably be the first to call the cops if someone threw an egg at their house. https://t.co/0u5PhEmXNf

Did you read what you just wrote – "nothing more than rocks & the occasional Molotov or grenade"? All of those weapons kill people! But I guess its OK with you if they only kill Jews.

Imagine the desperation of someone who breaks into my house at night knowing they will get shot or arrested. Try to conceive of the circumstances that could drive someone to such an act. Is that really what you're going with here?

Trying to conceive of a good reason for Sulome Anderson to delete her account? This ought to suffice.
