People who go “both countries are at fault”

What they think they sound like:

“I’m so rational. The truth is somewhere in the middle, they’re both wrong. I’m so nuanced and enlightened with my views.”

What they actually sound like:

“History and context are things that do not exist to me. In whatever dimension I exist in, I believe that there is an equivalence between an advanced occupying army that is notorious for war crimes, and an occupied brutalized population.”

"It’s prime-time news on ABC, and Diane Sawyer is opening a report on a dramatic escalation in the Middle East. “We take you overseas, now, to the rockets raining down on Israel today,” she says. The segment shifts to a photograph of two men near the angular wreckage of a bombed-out building. “And here, an Israeli family tries to salvage what they can,””Sawyer says, her voice straining to articulate the inhumanity of the destruction. “One woman, standing speechless among the ruins.”

There was one small problem with the clip: the people Sawyer describes aren’t Israelis; they’re Palestinians – struggling to deal with the brutal bombardment that Israeli forces are raining down on the Gaza Strip."
