Unfortunately, wars are going on around the world: in Ukraine against Russia and the Houthis against Yemen (and shipping).

However, only in the Israel-Hamas war are there major protests in the U.S. calling for a cease-fire.

Why?

Primarily because of the arms sales by the US, the extent of the death and destruction, and disagreement between domestic supporters and opponents of Israel's treatment of the Palestinians. Arguments for supporting Ukraine and protecting international shipping lanes, while not supported universally, have been easier to accept.

@hightor,
If Israel had responded to the events of October 7th by attacking Iran instead of Gaza, would world opinion still be against Israel?

Well, would you have been happier if that happened?

@glitterbag,

I would hit back at the head of the snake (Iran), not the proxy (Hamas).

I believe the U.S. has arms sales to Ukraine.

I acknowledge the suffering of the Palestinians (because Hamas uses them as human shields). The Russian conscripts are also suffering.
