"I am genuinely unsure, so I prefer reading what others have to say about Gaza...."

I am unsure what you are "genuinely unsure" about--namely, regarding the violence in Gaza and, fundamentally, the Occupation. But this is merely in response to your commentary. Indeed, staying "silent" might have been preferable under the circumstances.

Lionel, I am unsure about the answer to this question: "Maybe such sins are even required to ameliorate the bad?"

Thanks, Eric. I now understand the specific context for the comment. I still don't really understand, in terms of substance (especially re Singer's recent intervention), how you arrived at your question that led to the comment. But I'm not seeking an explanation here.
