I’m so tired

12 0 3

I’m so tired.

I’m tired of every news outlet covering the “escalation” in Israel.

I’m tired of seeing every pro-Israel post on social media being hijacked in the comments with hashtags like # GazaUnderAttack and # SaveSheikhJarrah at best and # TheWorldNeedsOneMoreHolocaust and # KillJews at worst.

I’m tired of seeing pro-Israel posts explaining what’s actually happening in Sheikh Jarrah/Shimon HaTzaddik or in Gaza and knowing they’re just preaching to the choir and even if they’re not, that it won’t make any difference.

I’m tired of the calls for nuance and for both blaming and showing compassion for both sides. I know there are two sides to every story. I’m tired of hearing it.

I’m tired of feeling like I need to gut check everything I say and think and read and feel against both a left wing and a right wing news site to make sure I’m getting a balanced perspective.

I’m tired of Americans always........
