Hey remember all those Pakistani children saying they were afraid to go to school because they feared being attacked by US drone strikes? no? you only know about Malala Yousafzai? because she was attacked by the Taliban instead of your taxes? oh, okay.
You realize hamas has been telling their people to die for their weapons, and ATTEMPTING to blow up israel (and failing I might add), while israel is protecting their citizens 24/7 and using weapons to protect their citizens (using the iron dome) AND GAZA! Israel invaded gaza after giving the citizens of gaza and advised them to evacuate before invading. Israel invaded to destroy their weapons, not to kill anyone. ISRAEL WILL WIN ❤️
By the way, as I was writing that, 5 ROCKETS WERE FIRED AT ISRAEL. I can assure you all were intercepted by the iron dome and no one got hurt in israel in those attacks. Just so you know! :) am yisrael chai!
You have no idea how angry i was when I recieved this message, I was close to just throw insults at you but that is not the way to make you listen. You have clearly been misinformed, so let me explain why you are wrong instead. Grab a chair and let me educate you.
"You realize hamas has been telling their people to die for their weapons, and ATTEMPTING to blow up israel"
Yes, I am aware of the suicide bombers, but this is an invalid argument. Hamas never forced citizens to die for them, everyone who went into those missions were Hamas volunteers, who out of desperation tried to defend their land. The last suicide bomber from Hamas exploded January 18th 2005, and I also need to add that Israel had a lot of suicide bombers too. Between 1993 and 2006 Palestinians killed 643 people while the Israelis killed 3638 people (among them 148 children under the age of 15) in the period 2000-2006.x (note: this is a Danish source, but you can still see the numbers are right). However, this is completely irrelevant right now.
There was a rumor about Hamas using citizens as human shields, but it’s confirmed to be false. The video showed is from Syria, not to mention MORE THAN FIVE MONTHS OLD. x
As you said, Today, the only thing Palestine has is fireworks, which barely does any damage at all. The death count of Israel is one person while 274 Palestinians have died in the last 10 days. There are more than 1500 Palestinians wounded, and only 2 or 3 Israelis. Over 900 homes destroyed, while only one building in Israel is.
This is the aftermath of one of Hamas’s rockets compared to the damage of the Israeli bombs. Don’t make it sound like Israel is the victim.
"while israel is protecting their citizens 24/7 and using weapons to protect their citizens (using the iron dome) AND GAZA! Israel invaded gaza after giving the citizens of gaza and advised them to evacuate before invading.
Israel don’t have a tough time protecting their citizens, because THERE IS NOTHING TO PROTECT THEM FROM.
These are actual pictures of Israeli people in their bomb shelters. THEY ARE USING #BOMBSHELTERSELFIES AND COMPLAINING ABOUT THEIR HAIR WHILE THOUSANDS ARE WOUNDED IN PALESTINE.
THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE IN GAZA
Palestine has NO ARMY OR WEAPONS, THEY CAN NOT DEFEND THEMSELVES. Israel warns the citizens 56 seconds before a bomb BY USING A SMALLER WARNING BOMB ON THE ROOF OF THE HOUSE. Besides, THE CITIZENS HAVE NOWHERE TO GO.
Israel controls all the movement of the citizens and its borders. They obviously can’t cross the border to Israel, and no one is allowed to cross the border to Egypt either, and as you can see on the map below they can’t go by sea either.
Israel invaded to destroy their weapons, not to kill anyone.”
That is not true, at all.
Israel fired 5 missiles at a hospital in Gaza and had threatened to do it again. x
Blew up a mosque, a school and a charity building.
A 15-year old Palestinian boy was forced to drink gasoline and SET ON FIRE.
Hundreds of Palestinians are dead and thousands are wounded.
Not to mention:
Israel has broken over 65 UN resolutions.
Their government is paying college students to pro-Israel propaganda on social media. x
Three Israeli boys were kidnapped and it’s confirmed Hamas has nothing to do with it, though the citizens of Israel were told the opposite.
Bonus fact: According to major polls, the majority of Israelis and Palestinians agree that a two-state solution is the best way to end the conflict. x
And last of all, there’s nothing for Israel to win. This is not a war, this is genocide. If you had read any of the posts (with legit sources) floating around on this website I wouldn’t have to explain this. As Kathlyn Gadd said; “Blaming Hamas for firing rockets at Israel is like blaming a woman for punching her rapist.”
Islamophobic:their Koran permits them to beat their wives...
Me:Yes it does but could you tell me what with?
Me:A blade of grass, I don't know the last time you tried to beat someone with a blade of grass but it is pretty damn impossible, you must look at the people the Qur'an was revealed to, the Arabs at that time (just like most of the world) would beat their wives brutally. To tell them they couldn't beat their wives would have caused rebellion, so Allah (swt) being the greatest of planners, revealed it in a way that was so clever. It permitted them to beat their wives (as not to cause rebellion) however only with a blade of grass (which we all know to be impossible). Then the most beautiful line came saying but surely it is better for you to forgive, do you see now that the Qur'an does not permit the brutal beating of wives which in that time would have saved the lives of many women. Also I suggest you look at the rights of a wife over her husband, then tell me my religion is sexist.
“I’ve really tried to understand the Israelis. I used to work on a farm in Israel. I speak Hebrew. I watch their news. All the time they talk about fear. How they have to run to their bunkers to hide from the rockets. How their children can’t sleep because of the sirens. This is not a good way for them to live. We Palestinians don’t talk about fear, we talk about death. Our rockets scare them; their rockets kill us. We have no bomb shelters, we have no sirens, we have nowhere we can take our children and keep them safe. They are scared. We are dying.”—Mohammed al-Khoudry a Palestinian farmer in Gaza.

There have been various posts spreading incorrect information about about Ramadan. Normally I am excited by people posting about Islam in any manner; the religion is a fascinating one. However, I became ashamed.
The people who posted about Ramadan seem to have no idea what it is, the rules, or the reason it occurs.
The biggest problems with the posts:
Myth: Tagging food as “NSFW”, as seeing food will break fast
Fact: Seeing, smelling, or being around food in general will not break fast. Also, the fast is going without food and drink, not just forgoing food.
Myth: “if they see food on their dash you’re just making it harder for them to restrain from eating”
Fact: This is offensive because it says that Muslims do not have the self-control to look at food and then abstain form eating it.
Myth: ” I’d just seen a couple pieces of untagged NSFW content on my dash, my fast would have been broken right now “
Fact: Your fast is not broken by viewing images- fast is broken if you act upon desires.
Also, if you read the first post, the person admits they do not know much about Ramadan- but they continue writing instead of reading. Also an important part of Ramadan is avoiding distractions-TV, music, and internet. Which means some Muslims will not be on Tumblr anyway.
For those curious about Islam and Ramadan, please follow these links:
“Poverty and racism, etc. are not poorly designed systems. They are systems working exactly as they were designed. In order for rich people to continue to amass wealth, poverty has to exist. In order for white people to have racial privilege in the US, slavery had to happen, genocide of indigenous people had to happen, and the exploitation of all people of color had to happen (and has to continue).
Poverty and racism exist to serve those in power, and ultimately, as long as we are taking our cues (and capital) for from those in power, we aren’t changing a thing. For example: if your vision is to create a social venture that provides a product to ‘the bottom billion’ and not to, say, eradicate slavery, wage slavery, and other worker exploitation that keeps the bottom billion at the bottom, then ultimately you’re not designing to resist poverty. You’re designing very well-thought-out bandaids.”—Janani Balasubramanian, "It’s Not You, It’s The System: Design and Technology for Social Good" (via aesthetickally)
Beard culture is corny as fuck you know when you see a dude with a beard and a plaid shirt and timberland combo he’s going to talk some boring shit about being a barista and how he can hear the coffee beans speak to him
bro remember when u listened to this song in the commons area of your middle school and you had a purple and black zebra case on your ipod and your background was a cartoon monster or cupcake and muffin that said ‘muffins are just ugly cupcakes’and you were wearing glittery converse and you teased and straightened your hair and wore a bow in itand you told everyone u got the bow at hot topic but you really got it at claires for 6.95 and you had like a whole dance choreographed in your head to this song but you never actually did it and then you went and talked about nightmare before christmas with your friend for an hour over skype
Imagine a black boy videotaping himself talking about how he intends to kill people. Shit will go viral. “That fucking thug!” Imagine a brown boy videotaping himself talking about how he intends to shoot a neighborhood. “Those fucking terrorists!” Now a white boy does it. It’s cool. “He’s just a little alone, doesn’t have too many friends. Bless his heart, wish people would see his golden heart, Martha.”
Friendzone ideology isn’t attacked because “nice guys” are comical or because fedoras make a funny meme, it’s because this logic is literally dangerous. This logic of “gentleman = deserving sex” breeds hatred of women, and brutal violence against women, and if a 22 year old self-proclaimed “supreme gentleman” murdering 6 in a campus shooting spree because of sexual rejection doesn’t drive that home, I don’t know what else would.
