So, Mary, people the IDF shoot are not terrorists "as usual". How do you know that? Have you kept track of each fatality. Do you know the people who were killed or their families or their backgrounds? Do you know the circumstances of their death? You don't know any of this information. You just make assumptions that you find simple and pleasing. You convert real lives and real families into identical stick figures that you can incorporate into a generalization that flatters your pre-existing opinion. This is the type of flabby thinking that causes wars, as in we have to fight the _________ [fill in the blank] because they are ________ [fill in the blank with a pejorative). If you understand what you're doing, you're a war monger. If you don't understand what you're doing, get an understandning before you make your own little contribution towards the next war.
