I treat every Israeli military or media claim as a lie and fabrication until the contrary is proved. I am old enough to have seen so many lies and fabrications exposed. Look at the memoirs of Avi Shlaim exposing so many Israeli lies and how Israel murdered innocent Arab Jews
In order to spread fear and terror and cause the flight of Iraqi Jews. They claimed that Samir Quntar cracked the skull of a child when he was involved in a failed attack in the 1970s. After his release, horrified to the story, I asked him bluntly. He answered me to my
satisfaction and now I know it was a lie. They specialize in lies involving babies. It is a staple of Israeli propaganda lie. Now if it is proven that Hamas did that, I have no doubt that Arab public opinion would turn, rightly, against it but I don’t believe an Israeli soldier
and Hamas was born in 1987, and they never beheaded any one, not even Israeli soldiers. So while they were attacking, they decided to take their time and start beheading the babies there? Do you know how many lies Israel claimed about targets they hit in Lebanon when I was
growing up? This is an occupation state that was boiled on lies and fabrication and promoted on lies and fabrications and consolidated in vicious and vile propaganda built on lies and fabrications
Israel can impose and has been imposing total blockade and siege on Gaza; preventing food, medicine, medical equipment, electricity and energy from reaching over two million people. Nothing less could be expected from a pure racist, evil, colonialist and hateful state.
Starving over two million people where 80% of the population are women, children, and elderly is a war crime and genocidal. Western governments and the so-called international community are complacent and partners of this crime against humanity.
Why would Egypt play along?
Who is in control of the Gaza-Egypt border? Israel or Egypt?
One cannot argue “both sides” of an issue:
Only Palestinians are under to military rule.
The only people who have their homes taken for illegal Israeli settlements are Palestinians.
Only Palestinians are experiencing forced evictions.
Apartheid laws only affect the Palestinian people.
One group is responsible for ALL of this: Israel
When a rocket shatters the glass of an Israeli home, the entire community evacuates through the airport, yet when a rocket hits a Palestinian home and kills half of a family, the surviving family members bury the dead and stay close to the graves of their loved ones.
Take a wild guess: whose land is this?
Israel has been at war against the Palestinians for 70+ years. Ethnic cleansing, occupation, Apartheid, siege. Today is a colossal failure for Israel’s security apparatus despite maintaining massive force superiority, underscoring the complete bankruptcy of Israeli leaders.
What is going on now is a normal response to decades of Israeli occupation & oppression. What Israelis are experiencing now does not even qualify as fraction of what Palestinians have been experiencing for more than 7 decades.
Contrary to popular belief, this was not Israel’s worst intelligence blunder.
The greatest intelligence blunder is the assumption that an occupying power can peacefully coexist with the occupied population.
In no way does that excuse violent behavior. However, it’s important to keep in mind that peace and occupation are unlikely to cohabit permanently.
Israel doesn’t have a right to exist.
Palestinians have a right to resist!
“Palestinians are terrorists. They should peacefully resist.”
But not Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (criminalised). Not Literature festivals (attacked, censored, refuse visas, lawfare). Not social media activism (shadow-ban them). Not protests (shoot them, mow the lawn).
