We are not seeing a “civil war” inside Israel, but rather the Israeli settler state declaring a war on its colonized “citizens,” and Palestinians fighting for their liberation.
A post by the Austrian chancellor has received a mixed response online. While some, including the Israeli prime minister’s son, welcomed Austria’s condemnation of Palestinian “terrorism,” others slammed Vienna’s side-taking.
Austria used as a sign of solidarity with Israel hoisting the Israeli flag on the roof of the Federal Chancellery, adding the terrorist attacks by Israel are to be condemned in the strongest. But together we stand by Israel’s side.
His post, accompanied by a photo of the country’s Chancellery flying the Israeli flag, while supported by some, has drawn extensive criticism on social media, leading some to question ‘Austrian attitude’.
Many others highlighted that Israel’s attacks on alleged terrorist positions in Gaza were illegal under international law and urged Vienna not to support such criminality.
One individual called on Kurz to “think carefully who the terrorist is here,” referencing to decades of Israeli occupation and destruction of Palestinian homes and villages for settler colonialism.
However, Kurz’s tweet was also welcomed by many, including the son of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Yair Netanyahu simply wrote “thank you,” accompanied by the flags of Austria and Israel.
Others called on the EU to follow Austria’s lead and support Israel against Palestinian livelihood, with some blaming Hamas for the Palestinian deaths attributed to Israel.
Israeli violence against Palestine has been widely condemned in the Muslim world, while many international organizations as well as world leaders called for de-escalation.
Tel Aviv claims that Hamas has misfired more than 350 rockets in the last three days, many of them landing in Gaza, “resulting in the deaths of innocent Gazan civilians.”
Kurz has just put a nail in his own political coffin, as it is okay to bulldoze peoples homes to the ground because people armed with guns want the land for themselves?
