Anonymous asked: You're clueless when it comes to Palestine. Israel warns the Palestinians before they fire rockets and the civilians ignore the warnings because they want Israel to look bad. And I know you're not gonna post this because you're a racist piece of shit

jewmingle:

Wait. youre telling me that Palestine civilians willingly ignore Israel’s so called “warning shots” because they want to sacrifice their lives so that Israel ‘looks bad.’ Please think about this for a millisecond and then reevaluate the facts. 

These “warning shots”, are barely warnings and can be better described as methods of psychological warfare. Minutes after the warning shot is fired, the real bombs hit the location giving civilians little to no time to exit their homes.

A video posted online this week by the Gaza-based news agency Watania shows the low-yield warning shot hitting a Palestinian house 1:08 before a second blast reduces the home to rubble. 

Here a house is blown up only 57 seconds after the warning shot 

Another instance a bomb hit a complex housing disabled Palestinian civilians who could not exit the building in time 

Phillip Luther, head of Amnesty International’s Middle Eastern Programme reports, “civilians have been killed in Israeli air strikes on or next to their homes. In the first three days of the military operation, Israeli air strikes on or adjacent to houses killed at least 32 civilians; at least two of the houses were reportedly attacked without warning.” 

So far 576 Palestinians have been killed with over 70% being civilians and over 120 of which being women and children. That means 4 out of every 5 people killed by Israel is a civilian

Is This It is about wanting more. More from life. More from love. And more from the world in general. I grabbed the album in 2001. It was the start of my senior year of high school, and I spent hours lost in the indie rock revival that pumped through my Walkman. I couldn’t get enough. You can imagine the shock when I learned my CD was missing a track that was only present on the international release. “New York City Cops” was deemed too insulting following the 9/11 attacks and thus stripped from the American pressings. But I wanted it. Badly. I needed more songs. My girlfriend managed to track it down at a local record store and gifted it over. Heartbeats fluttered and hammered through my chest. Even the cover art was superior. I was in love.

Flash forward 10 years. I was seeing a different girl. She also adored The Strokes. Is This It became the soundtrack of lazy weekend days in bed, as well as a go-to when hosting friends for dinner. But that all came to an end, too. In fact, “Barely Legal”, “Someday”, and “Alone, Together” bled from the speakers as we decided to end things. Again, my heart thumped like a herd of wild bison. But this time it was shattered.

A part of me feared I’d never be able to listen to Is This It again. I had a similar experience with Miranda July’s 2007 film The Future, which is a movie I’ve not been able to finish because its tale of a grief hit like a cement boxing glove. But fortunately, I mustered the strength and returned to Is This It. When I listen now, I relive the soaring highs of my first love, as well the melancholy pit of a failed relationship. A co-worker gave me a vinyl copy of Is This It for Christmas. It was the American version. It’s hard to explain, but somehow that just felt right. – Dan Pfleegor
