Bet they don’t look at Palestinian girls like that.
soldiers aren’t monsters. They’re just doing their job
normally i don’t reblog this kind of thing but i have no idea how this utter nonsense got on my dash without some sort of correction and that “don’t be ignorant” post really got to me because it feels like this sort of thing should be common knowledge by now so
here is also a more comprehensive visualisation of palestinian children under israel’s legal regime.
every version of this post should be reblogged with skepticism and corrections. your idiocy begins and ends when you rationalise, justify and misrepresent human suffering by posting cute pictures of soldiers carrying babies - with the caption “don’t be ignorant!” no less. this kind of mentality should not be mainstream, and you shouldn’t be okay with reblogging it. some soldiers are monstrous, because they’re doing monstrous work. any defense of it is unnecessary. your normalisation of a soldier’s work is acceptance of tyranny. it should be recognised when the orders they’re following are abhorrent.
Also, recall that time Israeli children were signing missiles during the 2006 war with Lebanon. If the above picture shows anything, it shows that IDF corrupts and indoctrinates children from a young age. these pictures of soldiers with kids they would kill in different circumstances (say if the kid was from the marginalized demographic or not being employed as pro-occupation propaganda) are so old, be it american soldiers in the numerous countries they have military presence in or Israeli soldiers.
Those pictures aren’t even fucking IDF soldiers, they’re American forces in Afghanistan and Iraq (which obviously isn’t any better than what’s pictured above), but the fact that you couldn’t even find pics to prove your asinine point is just……..
