Who would think the shrapnel injuries to an owl (a BIRD, for fucksakes) to be more worth mentioning than the deaths of over 1000 Gazan citizens, fully a quarter of them children, even as Eid al-Fitr gets underway? The Times of Israel…that’s who:
About two weeks ago, a long-eared owl was injured by mortar shrapnel in Kibbutz Nirim, near the Gaza border. The owl was found by Ben Itay, a kibbutz member and veterinary student, who brought him to his home. When rocket fire from Gaza eased enough to allow Ben to bring him to the Zoological Park in Ramat Gan, also known as the Safari, vets discovered that the poor creature had lost his vision in his right eye, had a broken beak, and was suffering from shrapnel in his head.
Nice of them to care so much about an owl. I like owls. They’re fierce, beautiful birds. But why is this even a story? And how do they know Hamas is to blame? Doesn’t Israel have mortars?
And really, if this is the best they can do for pro-invasion crapaganda now, that’s fucking pathetic.
