Definition: Genocide

Genocide is 

the deliberate killing of a large number of people from a particular nation or ethnic group 

with the aim of destroying that nation or group.

Israel is NOT engaging in Genocide of the Palestinian People.  

In fact, the Palestinian-Arab population of Israel has continued to grow every year since 1948.

Despite the deliberate shrill shouts to the contrary, Israel is not trying to destroy and eradicate Palestinians.  

In 2006, the official number of Arab residents in Israel was 1,413,500 people, about 20% of Israel's population. This figure includes 209,000 Arabs (14% of the Israeli Arab population) in East Jerusalem, also counted in the Palestinian statistics, although 98% of East Jerusalem Palestinians have either Israeli residency or Israeli citizenship.[146] In 2012, the official number of Arab residents in Israel increased to 1,617,000 people, about 21% of Israel's population.[147] The Arab population in 2023 was estimated at 2,065,000 people, representing 21% of the country's population.[1]

In Israel, Palestinian citizens are welcomed and are represented in elections, government and every segment of the shared society.

The Problem is Hamas and Gaza:  Gaza is NOT part of Israel, and has been independently ruled by Hamas since 2006.  Israel is engaged in a war against terror in a civilian terrain.  It is a terrible situation and thousands of innocent people are dying.  That is true.

But the accusation of "Genocide" is an inflammatory lie meant to distract you from the moral nature of Israel's response to terror and mass murder.

HAMAS wants to kill every Israeli and Jew in the land of Israel.  THAT is genocide by definition.  Israel wants to destroy Hamas, and leave the Palestinian people in peace after.  That is NOT genocide.
