If these font sizes don’t speak to the relative value of Palestinian life, I don’t know what does.

In addition to the font size, its also the language surrounding the deaths.
Not only do we know of the two Israelis, but also their occupation (they were soldiers sent to kill) and where they were killed.
Over 300 Palestinians are just referred to as deaths. Anything that was once alive could die. Animals, foliage, etc. They couldn’t even say Palestinians. Even acknowledging the identity of the colonized and allotting them basic humanity is too provocative. No location, no root of cause (because then it’d have to be understood that Israeli aggression is indeed at fault). Just 330 deaths. It all exists in a detached vacuum.
But it does refer back to Hamas. No matter what happens to Palestinians, its implicitly suggested that Hamas is to blame. Everything Israel does is reactionary under the normalization of Zionist brutality. To someone who doesn’t understand the nature of Israeli settler colonialist violence, this could very well be understood as Hamas killing Palestinians. The only mention of Israel is through a victim narrative.

-Oh the weather outside is weather
But the fire is so fire
Sense we’ve got no place to place
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow-

let it let, let it let, let it let

It’s “since,” not “sense.” I only mention it to be rude.
