And there we have the pro-Israel attitude in a nutshell ...

> "I don't view it as one"

(where "one" refers to "an atrocity" in the post to which he/she was replying)

Innocent children being maimed & killed?
"I don't view it as an atrocity."

Innocent women being maimed & killed?
"I don't view it as an atrocity."

Innocent men being maimed & killed?
"I don't view it as an atrocity."

War-crimes every day?
"I don't view it as an atrocity."

A world full of pain & misery?
"I don't view it as an atrocity."


No wonder that events are judged in terms of their theoretical monetary potential.
No-one with that attitude actually gives a shit about the human impact.

No wonder that exceptionalism is so widespread.
No-one with that attitude understands (much less tolerates) "difference".

No wonder that hypocrisy & hatred prosper around the globe.
No-one with that atttitude cares about anything except their own little bubble that
starts with "Me first" and ends with "Maximising profit at all external costs".


The underlying attitude is "Huh, *I* don't view it as a problem."

FTS.
