Israel Is Beefing with Greta Thunberg on X
“Hamas doesn’t use sustainable materials for their rockets," the official account of the nation wrote.
Israel is fighting with the Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg on X.
Earlier today, Thunberg used her weekly Fridays for the Future post to share that she was striking “in solidarity with Palestine and Gaza,” adding that “the world needs to speak up and call for an immediate ceasefire, justice, and freedom for Palestinians and all civilians affected.” Her post included a photo of herself holding up a sign reading "Stand with Gaza," along with others carrying signs saying "Free Palestine" and "Climate Justice Now!".
Her post followed the horrifying massacre and kidnappings of hundreds of Israelis by Hamas militants on October 7, and Israel’s subsequent bombardment of Gaza, where over a million civilians have been displaced and where thousands have been killed, according to the local health ministry. Both the Hamas attack and Israel’s bombing have received international condemnation and outcry.
However, the official X account for the nation state of Israel replied thusly:
.@GretaThunberg, Hamas doesn\u2019t use sustainable materials for their rockets which have BUTCHERED innocent Israelis .\n\nThe victims of the Hamas massacre could have been your friends. \n\nSpeak up.— Israel \u05d9\u05e9\u05e8\u05d0\u05dc \ud83c\uddee\ud83c\uddf1 (@Israel \u05d9\u05e9\u05e8\u05d0\u05dc \ud83c\uddee\ud83c\uddf1) 1697811098
