### [[Human Shields Claims]] #Politics #Conflict #War_on_Gaza #Misinformation How to respond. Part 1. *"But they are using citizens and hospitals as shields๐Ÿ˜ "* Possible response: "Gotcha. Let's imagine that they placed a fighter in every home. Let's assume that they built tunnels under every school and hospital. Let's stipulate they indeed used everyone and everything as a shield. Now, do you believe that the whole city deserves to be eradicated? You do? Cool, then just SAY THAT! Advocate for it. Say it loud and proud "the whole city and it's people deserve to disappear." - some are already saying it anyway. Alternatively, do you believe that the whole city does not deserve to be eradicated? Awesome, also SAY IT! Say it out and proud "the whole city doesn't deserve this". Just don't use a frail excuse without standing up to the to real consequences of this superficial argument."
