If these font sizes don’t speak to the relative value of Palestinian life, I don’t know what does.

In addition to the font size, its also the language surrounding the deaths. Not only do we know of the two Israelis, but also their occupation (they were soldiers sent to kill) and where they were killed. Over 300 Palestinians are just referred to as deaths. Anything that was once alive could die. Animals, foliage, etc. They couldn’t even say Palestinians. Even acknowledging the identity of the colonized and allotting them basic humanity is too provocative. No location, no root of cause (because then it’d have to be understood that Israeli aggression is indeed at fault). Just 330 deaths. It all exists in a detached vacuum.But it does refer back to Hamas. No matter what happens to Palestinians, its implicitly suggested that Hamas is to blame. Everything Israel does is reactionary under the normalization of Zionist brutality. To someone who doesn’t understand the nature of Israeli settler colonialist violence, this could very well be understood as Hamas killing Palestinians. The only mention of Israel is through a victim narrative.

هدول اللي  بعتقلوهم مش أطفال ؟ 

Transcribed image text:

commentator 1: Everybody’s wondering what impact it [Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy] might have on Hillary Clinton’s decision to run for PResident.

commentator 2: Does the fact that she’s going to become a grandmother, on top of some of the other considerations, factor in?

commentator 3: Could it put a bump in Hillary’s 2016 plans? And is it sexist to ask?

Jon Stewart: No, silly billy. Of course it’s not sexist. Even though it’s a question that has never ever been posed to a male candidate ever. For god’s sake, Mitt Romney has like a litter of grandchildren. If I’m not mistaken, Mitt Romney has a grandchild petting zoo. He got crushed in an election by someone with no grandchildren, yet somehow the grandchild factor never came up in the race between Obama and Romney.

It’s as though men and women are treated differently.

All you need to know about American foreign policy is that Secretary of State John Kerry, one of the highest officials in the US government, condemned the alleged kidnapping of 3 Israeli settlers but not one official has ever said anything about the 1,400 Palestinian minors that Israel has murdered and 8,000 it has detained (kidnapped?) since 2000.
