Those in the military were protesting. You dont know all this this that happened prior to the Hamas attack. You dont know the number of innocent civilians are being killed and their homes destroyed. You dont know that the UN is investigating and gathering evidence for war crimes by Natenyahu’s govt. And that is why you dont understand the bolded. You seem to absorb only that information that affirms what you choose to believe.
If you feel jews are terrorized on college campuses, they are not, how safe can you feel?
It just depends on who you listen to, doesn’t it? So you think that slaughtering children in their beds is perfectly justified? There is no use discussing it with you.

Do you think if one watches and reads news they support brutalizing children?

Rather than reinventing the wheel, here's a summary of the support group concept:

Well anti-Semitism of course has existed since the middle ages, it's not new.

Why is the extreme liberal left embracing anti-Semitism is another question (as it can exist in the extreme right as well). The easy answer is it falls into the other liberal causes dealing with the "haves" vs. "the have nots". Israel is a relatively prosperous state surrounded by poor countries. How they got there fits into the already historical preconceived notions they have about the inherent world power of Jews. Start with that, and everything else, the cause and effect, fits into place. The "have nots" become the heroes. All the atrocities these "have not" groups commit are forgiven, or justified.

The liberal hate groups you find on campus? Lots of these are Ivy League students, rich kids living off their mom and dad, first time away from home. These kids are brainless, listening to their pony-tailed teachers who never had a real job in there life. So just combine misinformation with the need to socially fit in, combined also with some professional agitators.

What is amusing is when one liberal cause conflicts with another. LBGTQ for instance. They take those views to Gaza and they will be dead within minutes.

Anyways, let's hope that the OP gets some help. Last I saw she was posting a Hamas propaganda video in the world forum that got locked up.

US republicans and democrat argue about politics much like Israelis argue about their own politics. Israel has more than one political party. Their government is dealing with a ongoing constitutional crisis. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018

NPR is one of the better news sources but no one needs to stay glued to the news. At least 99% has no bearing on us on a daily basis. We have three local TV stations and each one devotes about four hours a day on local news. No one needs that much constant haranguing of every news story repeated day after day. Sure, there are important stories now and again but once you hear the details you don’t need to have it repeated six times a day.

Many people can’t tell the difference between news or newsy entertainment like we see on news networks or something that is just opinion or flat out fake news and conspiracy theories.

After 9/11 I became a news junky and spent too much time following every story. There was good reason for that for a while but no reason to be obsessed with it month after month. I finally limited my focus on news and took up other things and projects.

It’s the same with Israeli Palestinian issue. The US press just refuses to report on this ongoing 75 year old crisis. The only reports are when Palestinians react to Jewish terrorism. Then it’s how can the Palestinians be so mean/uncivilized/murderous.

God bless the Jew who are speaking up for the Palestinians now.
I agree about the failure of media, especially NYT, during the Iraq war. Everybody lied and it was a criminal tragedy what US did to Iraq.
I feel NPR. BBC, and PBS are doing a credible job of reporting from the location, asking good questions. As it always happens the tragedy and horror of the slaughter of civilians gets distant after a while and we get inured to the pain and carry on with life.
More than shutting off the media, shutting off P&CE is more effective. Selectively using the ignore function is good for mental health as well.

What the heck? Is everyone seeing what I am seeing above? ^^^^ One post inserted into another post, not as a quote? Some sort of glitch in the matrix?
