The whole “I support Palestinians but Hamas is an extremist/terrorist” yadda yadda yadda line is annoying. Occupied peoples have a right to resistance and armed struggle MUST be a part of any liberatory praxis when the oppressor has forgone consciousness and dehumanizes an entire people.


Even though they take actions that may not seem the safest or most strategic, this is a very true statement. Palestinians themselves put Hamas in power. Armed resistance is necessary to fight an occupying force.
