From time to time a story catches the world's attention in a big way - and leaves us with questions. The violence in Israel and Palestine in October 2023 is one of those stories. It leaves us asking many questions, like:
- What is happening in Israel?
- Who exactly are the good guys?
- What's the goal of these attacks?
- Is this the start of World War 3?
- Why does the US provide support to Israel?
- Why do many left-wing people support Palestine? Why do many right-wing people support Israel?
The problem is that many of these questions get asked repeatedly. That's a problem, because it can make it hard for other interesting questions to get the attention they deserve, and because our users get tired of answering the same question so questions don't always get good answers.
When this happens, /r/NoStupidQuestions makes a Megathread that is stickied at the top of the sub. All your questions related to Israel, Palestine and the current conflict can be asked here - just write a new top-level response to this post in order to ask a question! Non-question top-level comments will be removed, sorry.
Megathreads are part of /r/NoStupidQuestions and follow the same rules as the rest of the sub. We know that this conflict can be emotional for people, but we ask that you remember the human and be kind to each other. Insults and hate speech (like calling for genocide or calling one side sub-human) will get you banned.
