I guess you have never lived in a place that there are about 20 rocket alarms per minutes, to wake up in 2am to run to shelters. I really don't know how to explain this situation, but the army tells all the people in danger to leave the place before they attack the Hamas
This exact sort of thing happened before in the American West. Israel could learn from my country’s mistakes. It’s not moral to use strength and a sense of destiny to remove a people from land that has been theirs, and it’s especially immoral to put civilians – like you – in the middle of the ensuing struggle.

This map illustrates a long-term, large-scale and unjust invasion of Palestine.
I have sympathy for civilians who are suffering on both sides of the conflict. The death of an Israeli civilian is just as tragic as the death of a Palestinian civilian. But it just so happens that there are far more Palestinian victims, that Palestinians are victims of large-scale oppression, and that their right to national sovereignty is refused.
It’s hard for people to admit that they’re wrong and to back down. Hamas was wrong to reject the recent peace plan. Israel was wrong to whittle away at Palestinian land, put civilians in what is effectively a walled-in cage, declare war on the tunnels that were built to escape said cage, and then shell civilians.
You mention media and Hamas brainwash. You may not be aware of this, but U.S. media is almost always pro-Israel. If there is any brainwashing going on here, it’s done in favor of Israel.
I am not a supporter of religious fundamentalism of any kind, and I believe that Hamas is a mixed bag at best. But I do believe that people deserve the right to self-determination, to not live in fear, and to make their own decisions about what sort of a nation they would like to live in.
How come when a cat licks itself it’s “taking a bath” but when I lick myself I “vomit baby teeth”?
