This is pure and simple hate towards fellow jews who are under attack.
do you honestly believe that?

I may not agree with @PlatinumGuy's views on Hamas and Israel, but I still appreciate that there are opposing viewpoints that aren't just NK garbage.

I don't see the need to cancel him over his well articulated opinions, even if they are unpopular.

The Israel Defense Forces announces it is canceling all weekend leave for combat soldiers as it prepares for the possibility of a ground operation in the Gaza Strip, as fighting there intensifies.

The military has sent infantry troops and tanks from the Paratroopers Brigade, Golani Brigade and 7th Armored Brigade to the Gaza border.

In addition, IDF Spokesperson Hidai Zilberman says the military has called up 7,000 reservists.

Roughly half of these are troops from air defense, artillery and medical units, and half serve in administrative and intelligence positions, Zilberman says.

Opinions are one thing but presenting simply wrong "facts" is something else. Opinions can be unpopular and controversial, but when trying to back them up with fake facts that is a different path. Might call for some introspection and restraint.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Not sure how you can call someone a hater when they have provided valuable information and help during these tragic times.
Take it from someone that knows when you have to resort to personal attacks you have no valid argument.

If it was only so easy to tell which facts are really facts.

I hate to say it but then they need to send in ground troops and take them out.

It's a process. Aerial work needs to be done first, and a very precise plan of action needs to be created in order to minimize collateral damage.

There's a line between articulating unpopular opinions and spouting contrarianism just for the sake of it. Some of the stuff that has been said is so patently absurd it's hard to believe it's not the latter. I'm not out to "cancel" anyone, whatever that means, though I will say I should go back to avoiding the "show me the post" button.

Intentional use of the word restraint due to context?

I Agree, but I won’t lie, a lot of cognitive dissonance in his positions in this thread.

in intelligent conversation btwn intelligent ppl, some facts are just given.
it is very frustrating, time consuming, and unproductive to have to start pulling up the links to prove that hamas hates jews etc.
it also makes your reply posts longer than the average attention span, and less concerted on the point u want to say, after the obvious should have been understood.
it ends up causing responses like this:
didn't even read some of your posts.

So don't participate in the debate. I haven't had to enforce forum rules on personal attacks since peak COVID, but I will if I have to.
