SellyCat said:I think it's absolutely ludicrous and totally outrageous to use the term "genocide" to describe Israel's actions. You can't just throw that word around just because its the equivalent of a "triple word score" is Scrabble, because its so loaded.
this has happened before, i think it was the "jenin massacre" or something as such.
these types of accusations hope the mere mention of them invoke an emotional reaction, with any rational defense appearing to be back peddaling or "quantifying human death and suffering" the whole "1 life is too many" type argument.
if this conflict continued on its current pace and widened, i would consider the question but calling this a genocide at the moment seems way off base non?
