Watch: Israel Boasts About Killing 2 Civilians for Every Hamas Militant

The IDF should drop a 2Pac style diss track on Palestinian toddlers.

Like: “Ey yo, we ridin’ all yall little niggas, we be killin’ every toddler in this bitch, killin’ them babies too, y’all shoulda thought fo’ you went playin’ with da Jews.”

(I could think of a better one. Maybe I’ll write a full track and record it.)


Israel believes that it has killed two Palestinian civilians for every Hamas militant in its intense campaign to eliminate the armed group from the Gaza Strip, a ratio an IDF spokesperson described to CNN Monday as “tremendously positive.”

The AFP news agency first reported the Israeli assessment on Monday, citing a briefing for foreign media by senior Israeli military officials.

Asked by CNN’s Erin Burnett about the details that emerged in the briefing, IDF spokesperson Jonathan Conricus said: “I can confirm the report.” Conricus cited the challenges of fighting in a densely populated area.

According to figures compiled by the Hamas-controlled health ministry in Gaza, almost 16,000 people have died since October 7. The ministry’s figures don’t distinguish between combatants and civilians. Conricus’ statement implies that more than 10,000 civilians have died in the conflict.

Conricus added: “I can say that if that is true – and I think that our numbers will be corroborated – if you compare that ratio to any other conflict in urban terrain between a military and a terrorist organization using civilians as their human shields, and embedded in the civilian population, you will find that that ratio is tremendous, tremendously positive, and perhaps unique in the world.”

According to the AFP report, an unidentified Israeli official said that it was hoped the ratio will be “much lower” in the next phase of the war. “I’m not saying it’s not bad that we have a ratio of two to one,” the official was quoted as saying.

The IDF estimates that Hamas was comprised of around 30,000 fighters before October 7, when it launched an unprecedented attack on Israel, killing more than 1,200 people and taking more than 240 hostage. In response, Israel has vowed to eliminate the group once and for all.

Barak Ravid, a CNN political and foreign policy analyst, said Conricus’ comments about the “positive” ratio of civilian-to-militant casualties may not have been a “good choice of words.”

“I don’t think the fact that 10,000 civilians (were killed)… is positive in any way,” Ravid told CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, adding that “Israel was facing a dilemma in the last 24 hours” with regards to increasing pressure from the United States and its call for more humanitarian aid to enter Gaza.

We’re not really understanding the historical significance of this child slaughter campaign.

No one has ever done anything like this. It’s really incredible, just in front of the world, to be purposefully slaughtering thousands of children and not even really making any excuses about it, and then going around and talking about how it’s good.

It’s so amazing that the Americans are watching this like “well, they have to kill those babies.”

It’s one of these post-post-modern reality-benders.

We will look later, and people will be very shocked.
