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.

ibtasem:

You can hide yourself
from the people
like the content of a letter
through its envelope.

They don’t get to see your
secret mistakes or sins;
only that what you choose
to show them.

But don’t forget that
He is always watching you
and well aware of what
you keep inside your heart.

After all He is Al-Alim,
The One, Who knows the
unseen of the heavens
and the earth.

You can’t just watch the news for a few days, read a couple headlines here and there, and think that you know what is really going on, why it’s happening, and what should be done about it. You cannot take one incident and examine it completely out of context and then use that as an argument.

Christiano Ronaldo gave 1.200.000€ to Palestine, he received a Quran from Palestinians as a gift. So much respect for this guy♡. He is not even Muslim.
