What does this tell us about the mindset of Israelis, engaging in such egregious behaviour?
"However, a closer inspection of the image reveals that the group is witnessing what could possibly be explosions and gunfire in the distance. This, allegedly, is the Sderot cinema: a gathering of Israeli locals in Sderot city to watch the ongoing live bombing of Gaza"
Since its first appearance on social media, the picture has gathered much criticism and rightful disgust. It has since become a symbol of a collective Israeli apathy towards years of systemic suppression of Palestinians, and a winning response against Israel's nonchalant attitude towards the ongoing attacks on Gaza.If you had any doubt that Israel is a country inhabited by psychopaths........
It isn't difficult to confirm the veracity of the image, posted on Twitter by journalist Allan Sørensen who is reporting from ground zero. Reporters who spoke with some these spectators of war have documented their interactions.
"We are here to see Israel destroy Hamas," one of them tells a Danish journalist. "It's great to be here. You can feel the thunder and see the rockets. It is a quest for excitement," says another.
Many of them cheer with every explosion. Others have carried popcorn and drinks for the "viewing".
