Our Israeli Friend Eitan Chitayat’s Powerful First Hand Account Of What’s Happening In His Country Right Now Needs To Be Shared With Absolutely Everyone.

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Read this.  And then tweet it to the absolute horror show that is the “squad” – because they are freaking CLUELESS.

If you’re unfamiliar with Eitan’s work, you have some catching up to do.  He’s been a long time virtual friend of the Chicks, and he’s basically one of my favorite people that I’ve never met in person.  Here’s a previous post that includes links to tons of Eitan goodness.

But for now?  Read this.  And share it with everyone.

3.02 AM update.
I can’t sleep, even though I’ve only slept 7 hours in the past 48 hours.
I can’t sleep because yes, we’re interrupted by Hamas launching missiles at us trying to murder us as we sleep. In every corner of my small country.
But also because, in watching the news, I come across uninformed politicians in the States lying to the public – a public that includes you.
There are leaders like Ilhan Omar saying that Israeli airstrikes killing civilians in Gaza are acts of terrorism.
Or Rashida Tlaib accusing Israel of Apartheid.
Or Ayanna Pressley saying the US government shouldn’t finance ‘state violence’.
Or AOC saying that our forces are forcing families from their homes during Ramadan, being violent and that we are inhumane.
Let’s not forget the glorious celebs weighing in with their gems, like Trevor Noah, offering us some of his food for thought:
“In Gaza, Israeli airstrikes have reportedly killed 28 people, including 10 children. Over 150 people have been wounded. But In Israel, Hamas rockets have killed two people. (As of today that number has risen).
Personally, I cannot watch that footage and hear those numbers and see a fair fight. If you are in a fight where the other person cannot beat you, how hard should you retaliate when they try to hurt you?”
I dunno, Trevor. Maybe you should look at this picture of me and my boys from less than an hour ago.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. And let me be very clear. Hamas is trying to kill ME. My whole family. My two sons. All of us here. That is their purpose. Not to live side-by-side in peace. Get it through your heads – that is what is happening. And it’s VERY personal. For all of us here.
We are being targeted to die. Literally, Hamas is targeting us. To kill us. And to kill every Israeli AND every Jew in the world.
As our army tries to take out these thugs launching missiles at us whilst hiding like chickensh^t amongst their brothers and sisters, Palestinian innocents on the other side are being caught in the crossfire.
And they are dying because of jihadists and terrorists, not because of the State of Israel that is doing what it must to protect its citizens – as any sovereign country would.
The reality of it all from the comfort of your home is a hard thing to digest. You might not like it. I don’t either. But it is the truth.
So how hard should we retaliate? I don’t know, man. How hard would you retaliate if you were put in this situation by an enemy that has it in their official charter to obliterate you?
Look at this picture again.
I will not apologize for our army protecting my family and children and for them trying to take out a vicious and evil enemy before they get to us.
I know my army will do everything in its power to avoid civilian casualties but it’s virtually impossible given the real enemy.
Much as I hate the videos of dead Palestinian children, the mutilated bodies, the fire and brimstone, death and carnage and weeping mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters….much as I hate the death of ANY innocents, right now and forever I will not apologise for surviving an enemy trying to murder me.
You wouldn’t either.

Show that picture to the squad and the sheep who believe them.

ENOUGH with the lies.  Israel has the right to defend itself.  It has the right to exist.  The end.
