"We need to flatten entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza. The Americans didn’t stop with Hiroshima--the Japanese weren’t surrendering fast enough, so they hit Nagasaki, too."
In other words, kill all the brown-skins. Mass-murder them. If it takes genocide to secure Israel's illegal occupation of Palestine, so be it.
A decisive conclusion is necessary
By Gilad Sharon
There is no middle path here--either the Gazans and their infrastructure are made to pay the price, or we reoccupy the entire Gaza Strip.
This led to a discussion. First Samantha:
The Enola Gay Controversy
Uncle John did not second guess the dropping of the bombs.
Apparently your uncle wasn't aware of the huge controversy surrounding the bombing and our possibly fictional "expecations." He should've questioned authority, like me, rather than swallowing it blindly.
Debate over the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
Those who oppose the bombings argue it was simply an extension of the already fierce conventional air raids on Japan and, therefore, militarily unnecessary, inherently immoral, a war crime, or a form of state terrorism. At least one historian states that the Soviet declaration of war on Japan had more of an effect than the two nuclear bombings (cf. Tsuyoshi Hasegawa).
Debate over the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki--Militarily unnecessary
Most Americans also didn't second-guess the attempted extermination of the American Indian. Most Americans like to kill brown-skinned people at the drop of the hat.
And not all stood by quitely as America's First People were dispossessed and slaughtered.
It's a stretch to myopically claim that America's documented racism had nothing to do with the callous disregard for brown-skinned life in the cases above.
Israelis are white, not brown?
Oh, and if anyone's wondering about associating Israelis with America's white-skinned mass murderers, here's why it's legit:
