Indie Bundle for Palestinian Aid (1,272 Items from 865 Creators) - US$5 (~A$6.81) @ Itch.io

34532

I was waiting for this since I heard about it on Reddit. I have had many hours of enjoyment and inspiration from the Racial Justice bundle last year. Bundle of 1000ish things, games, soundtracks, assets, TTRPG, tools, etc. Haven't looked closely enough to unearth any real treats yet but for under seven bucks Australian for the couple of hours wading through weird TTRPG rulesets will be worth it for me personally…

Edit: The creator of the bundle has posted to Twitter there will be further additions "next week", so if you were on the fence about the value of the inclusions in the bundle it might be about to get bargain-ier!

Edit the second: More games and creators added. Deal remains great value for money!

      All profit from this bundle will be donated to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. The UNRWA has provided food assistance for over one million Palestinians, and continues to do so in the territories with heavy destruction. They also provide emergency mental and physical health protection for those in the region. https://www.unrwa.org/gaza-emergency

        I genuinely wish the residents there rebel against their Hamas govt rather than making propoganda videos to get sympathy from other countries.

        Again, I'm not against UN help, but here it's a different situation

          That's how Hamas does its business: Attack Israel -> make its people get killed -> show it to the world -> win political support from its people and money from other Arabian nations. Without such moves Hamas has no business to do at all.

          Unfortunately UNWRA supposedly an unbiased UN entity is not always an impartial party in the conflict..

          UNRWA; the most influential agency in the Gaza region has issued a rare condemnation of Gaza armed terrorist factions after its officials discovered a tunnel at the location of an Israeli missile strike at Zaitoun school (under UN administration).
          Hamas has been caught out again using Palestinian schools and hospitals to hide and fire deadly missiles at Israeli civilians.

        Ah the usual Pro Palestinian genocide chant makes it way to OZB. Take your hate elsewhere. You either know you're calling for the annihilation of Israel and Jews 'from the river to the sea' or you're a very useful 'type'. Either way, people like you deserve nothing but ridicule & disrespect, you have a similar mindset to some of the worst human rights abusers & mass murderers the planet has ever seen.
        Your solution is to solve a 'refugee' problem by creating an even larger one. Actually, you want to solve it by way of murder judging by your chant.

      Antisemitism is the oldest firm of racial discrimination.Just over 70 years ago 6,000,000 Jews were murdered by the Nazis for one reason and one reason only - they were born Jews.
      Of the 6,000,000 , 1.2 million were children.
      It had nothing to do with them being Zionists.
      Once again antisemitism is rearing its ugly head. There are only an estimated 15,000,000 Jews in the world, with over a half that live in the tiny country Israel, that they want to live in peace in. That is the loony Zionist dream.

        Antisemitism

        Oh, please!
        Jewish people don't have a monopoly on being the only Semitic people on this planet.
        Arabs (including Palestinians) are also Semitic-speaking people.

          You obviously are an antisemite!. The term antisemite applies only to Jews.
          The Jews have been singled out for persecution, in almost every country they have lived in for more than 2,000 years. The only reason why was because they were Jews.
          There are only 15,000,000 +- Jews in the world. There are are more than 2 billion Muslims.
          To try and makeout that being an antisemite is to be anti anyone from the middleast is a distortion of the truth and reality.
          The education system in Gaza, the Westbank and most Arab countries is Antisemitic. Children are indoctrinated from a very early age to hate jews, and to glorify killing Jews.
          Rather than try and play with semantics, and make out that antisemitism is not aimed at The Jews, study actual history, and truth.

            @bspark: An honest question back to you.

            Children are indoctrinated from a very early age to hate jews, and to glorify killing Jews.

            Do you think that Israeli children are indoctrinated from a young age, to demonise Palestinians so that their killings can be justified as well?

      People should pick up a history book and do some rudimentary research on reality, rather than swallowing Hamas propaganda dreamed up in the last few decades. "Zionist" is little different to saying "Aussie" or "Maori". It literally means someone who has some pride in who they are and merely wants the continued unimpeded existence of their own kind and independent nation, on the basis it's been THEIR ancestoral land for hundreds of years (not anyone else's).

      In a nutshell, after several wars, the Israeli government forced their own people to abandon certain areas. Israeli people lost homes and businesses often with little to no compensation, leaving it open for Palestinian squatters to move in, rent free. It was an admirable attempt to keep the peace but Hamas has refused to let it work. More is never enough. Someone cited it in here, their little ditty about "to the sea" is literally a war cry, Hamas wishing to drive every Israeli man, woman and child into the ocean to extermination so they can have someone else's property that never belonged to them.

      There's zilch wrong with people wanting to CONTINUE LIVING and remain an independent democratic nation on land that has been theirs for hundreds of years!? Especially when the place never belonged to other people wanting them to leave who are not the original inhabitants.

      Most of us prefer to believe in the "brotherhood of humanity" and we like to think most people aren't out to deceive or harm us. It's why so many online scams still reap victims. But liars, thieves, and every other criminal behaviour does exist. That leaning toward compassion and generosity is also how Hamas rakes in million$ (billion$?) a year to continue bloodshed: thanks to the good-hearted, well-intentioned people, donating to something they think is a good cause.

      So please do a bit of research first people. If you "just want the stuff", have at it. But if you're doing it "because blah blah"… can you really feel in your heart or conscience you've done something good when it's being turned into rockets and bullets and the people you wanted to help get none of it? Did you really help or just help Hamas continue inflicting suffering on everyone involved?

      Description in link contains following text "They live under Israeli authority that discriminates and subjugates Palestinians to the point of persecution and apartheid, simply for being Palestinian"

      The Israel is an apartheid state claim many see as an offensive statement. I have no problem with donating to UN for the cause, I have a problem with the description containing politically charged statements that many find offensive.

      Given the current coalition in Israel that is about to take rule contains members of an Arab Muslim party, yep Apartheid…

        So what, the description is bad. The description writer is not getting the money and is not using it to buy missiles. It is used for humanitarian help and then I really do not even care who is right or wrong as all innocent victims deserve help.
        Remember, this is a deal website not a political forum so personally I do not want to get into a political discussion.
        If we considered ethics, morality, false statements, and political leanings of company CEOS here I guarantee that there would not be many deals on here.
        Plus really the deal is about whether or not it is a bargain and undoubtedly that is.
        Any political discussion belongs into the forum or better elsewhere.

        So just to be clear, that statement is inaccurate in your opinion? So everyone gets a pass not for what the Israeli government was yesterday, is today, but what it might be tomorrow? I just don't understand that logic.

        I remember the week my brain changed forever. I was in the French countryside. Invited to dinner parties over the week. Many Iranian families. Wow. Nicest people I'd ever met in my life - so many of them. That was the week I realised in my immature brain that I must forever separate people from their woeful governments. People don't do that well enough with the wonderful Palestinians. I do realise Israeli's are equally wonderful and that's kind of the point. Personally Im thrilled to see that corrupt pos about to lose power. Long overdue.

          Palestinians living in Israel get to vote in elections, have for decades. The Arab Muslim party has also been around for ages, not just suddenly sprung up for this election that you seem to imply.

          Meanwhile Abbas, ruling the Palestinian Authority, is into the 16th year of his 4 year term.

          Also, I never criticized Palestinian people, or Iranians, but please throw out an implied smear against me for something I never said.

            @rheags: What about the Palestinians in the occupied territories (the majority)? They get no vote. The Palestinian authority (also corrupt) isn't a government, they are not a state under any definition.

            So what's left is an enforced apartheid of an ethnic majority population, to ensure a Jewish minority population maintains control of the Israeli government. Actually quite similar in practice to the South African model, if you look past all the biblical/ Zionist angles of 'God promised us'.
