[A post from r/ChapoTrapHouse celebrating the killing of a 19-year-old IDF recruit got posted on r/AgainstHateSubreddits, causing a wave of trigerred salty tankies to brigade it.]
Re: /r/chapotraphouse celebrates an Israeli soldier getting murdered by a terrorist
That isn’t true. I know because I actually did my damn research and now many IDF soldiers. This kid’s name was Gal Keidan, a 19 year old kid straight from high school almost conscripted into the army. No doubt he was literally just standing there doing nothing because that is what they usually do when they’re posted in the cities, they’re there just for security. Now this kid is stabbed and dead but it’s OK they’re just colonialists who cares it’s war. Bullshit. People need to maybe lift the veil that these are kids killing kids and it’s fucked. And to refute your point the parents have been arrested and the kid is still on the run, which is standard stuff even if it were to happen in the US or anywhere else in the West. This isn’t some Shiite/Sunni street vigilante justice like you’d find in Lebanon. It’s genuine due process.
So much for against hate subs, you guys may as well be one.
The state of israel is a colonial state though?
We are against hate. And the state of israel has colonized the west bank and built illegal settlements all throughout a land that is not theirs. Don't expect reasonable people to have sympathy for a colonial apartheid system.

Is this some kind of joke?
Calling Israelis murderous colonists in response to being accused of anti-Israeli hate speech?
It's more likely than you think.
It’s almost like being against a country doesn’t make you racist
Care to specify what you mean by "being against a country"? Its people? Its existence? Against it in football?
Against the war crimes, colonization, and apartheid to became a few things.
"Islam isn't a race therefore it isn't bigoted when I say that Muslims are terrorists."
"Israeli isn't a race therefore it isn't bigoted when I say that Israelis are murderous colonists."
America was created by murder and genocide, so was Israel. I have no issue with the individual people, just the military.
That is not what is being said here.
It isn't bigoted to say Nazis are bad, Germans are not.
It isn't bigoted to say ISIS is bad, Muslims are not.
It isn't bigoted to say the government of Israel is currently commiting genocide, the Jews are not.
In all these cases I am referring to specific organisations who have committed specific crimes. It would be bigoted to try and extrapolate that to a cluster of related people (e.g. by race, gender, religious beliefs), but no one ITT is doing that. They are condemning the actions of a government.
It's bad enough that these commies are bigoted against people of means but hating soldiers just because it's their job to kill in defense of an active settler colonial project? That's even worse.
If it was possible for Jews to coexist peacefully with gentiles you might be able to argue that criticizing Israel wasn't antisemitic. But of course thanks to modern race science we all know that mitochondrial DNA and uh, epigenetics, gives the jew an irresistible urge to steal everything that isn't nailed down and murder anyone who gets in the way. So condemning that sort of behaviour is inherently antisemitic.
It's like saying you don't have a problem with dolphins, you just don't think mamals should swim.
I also call Americans murderous colonists. Shouldn't you be upset that this is on this subreddit instead of wasting time with me?
Are you actually comparing the Israeli government to Nazi Germany?
Is an Apartheid State
Has a minority group become second class citizens
Commits War Crimes
Attacks Civilians on the reg
Wants to expand land holdings
So...more like Apartheid South Africa, but you could also compare it to Nazi Germany
A terrorist? The only terrorists in the region are the IDF.
You see, shit like this is why I'm not a tankie.
chapotraphouse blurs the lines between valid criticism of Israel and outright antisemitism.
It's a real shame too. Both Jews and muslims have a mutual enemy in white supremacists - in an ideal world, extremists on either side would come over here and rid us of them, rather than fighting each other on a land already drenched in brotherly blood.
"muh antifascism is fascism"
What nonsense you a...
Imagine constantly posting shit like this and then getting your knickers in a twist when someone kills a soldier from a settler colonial apartheid state that routinely kills civilians, bulldozes homes as a matter of policy, and explicitly exists for the benefit of one ethnicity over all others.
The white supremacists side with the European settler colonial state though.
Oh no won’t someone think about the
Poor Israeli War Crimi- I mean soldiers who murder chil- defend the nation of Israel.
