Upside Down World

The media keep reporting that Israel and the US are trying to teach Hamas to play by the rules by not funding the new Palestinian government until they renounce violence and recognize Israel’s right to exist. So the occupying power and its principal financial and military backer, who are collectively responsible for far more deaths of innocent civilians than Hamas, and are now, and have been for the last 35 years, in the process of colonizing the Palestinians’ land, need to withhold and provide incentives to teach the democratically elected party of the people they are violently oppressing to renounce violence and recognize their oppressors right to exist. And this is taken for granted as a perfectly reasonable position in the US media.
