The Media and Their Lies are Starting to Upset Us


We sat down and started our regular discussion before setting words to media and realized that after what we read about the Gaza War was just too upsetting for us to write anything calmly. We thought things through and decided that we would be better served to sleep on this and not write it while tempers were still flared. We apologize for our delaying reporting but we just need to simmer and calm before writing. As stated by Falstaff after feigning death and thus avoiding Prince Hal’s judgement in Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part I, “The better part of Valor, is Discretion; in the which better part, I have saved my life.” Our discretion may be saving our being hosted here on WordPress as what we want to say in the heat of the moment would prove disastrous in the end, so we will return to this article when heads have cooled and thought gelled into a presentable reaction and assessment of the pure bile, hatred and lies spilling out of the media and we will write this before reading anything further just to be capable of remaining in a clamed state. Until then, and until this is posted, thank you all for your reading support.


The level of animosity in the reporting of the “peaceful” protests along the Gaza border with Israel has been inundated with falsehoods. The pictures show families holding picnics, men in rows in prayer, a tent serving drinks and food and numerous other innocuous activities. Some have shown the smoke screen produced through the burning of thousands of tires. Other pictures show people protesting as if they were marching with Martin Luther King for equal rights. These protests have been reported as being against the Israeli occupation of Gaza. Everything above is a compilation of lies. The easiest to pick apart is the presumed reports of an Israeli occupation of Gaza. Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, a full two years before Hamas violently took charge of Gaza by violently overthrowing the Palestinian Authority governance. Israel had no part in this battle for rule over Gaza. The Palestinian Authority lost a civil war with Hamas and Hamas has ruled Gaza ever since. For everybody’s benefit, the blockade of Gaza began once Hamas took control over Gaza in order to prevent the importation of heavy weapons. The intention was to prevent Hamas from importing weapons as the PLO had attempted with the Karine A weapons ship which Israel intercepted revealing the arms shipment which was attempted to be smuggled into Gaza when the PLO controlled the region before Hamas (see image below). Hamas would have such ships arriving as regularly as they were able had Israel not taken it upon herself to monitor the items being shipped into Gaza. The blockade that the Europeans get all fussy over often gets the aid that is actual aid into Gaza by trucks the same day or the next day. Some items are not permitted into Gaza such as certain metals which are used to produce rockets and firing tubes. Cement is only permitted for rebuilding buildings and the vast majority of that cement is stolen by Hamas to build tunnels which is why no school or hospital has been built in Gaza for many years and why so many of the apartments have not been rebuilt. The fact is that Hamas uses over forty percent of all production in making bunkers and infiltration tunnels all with the intent to destroy Israel. These protests are the latest Hamas weapon against Israel, their own people.

What you are not being told is about the kites being flown over the Israeli border with incendiary devices tied into their tails with the intent of setting fires over the border. They have brandished swastika flags along with the Palestinian Flag and if you look closely at the swastika kite, the bottom of the tail has an incendiary device attached (see image below). These are images from Gaza that unless you comb media, particularly Israeli and, oddly enough, Arab media where the reality is represented without any political mendacity in order to make Israel the problem and not reveal the Hamas as terrorists with the murder of Israelis as their intention. The first day of the Gaza rioting Hamas sent a child, a young seven year old girl, across the border near the start of the border violence likely hoping she might be shot in the confusion. The IDF recognized the figure approaching was a young child and took care to see that she was unharmed and found her parents returning her unharmed and hopefully not traumatized by the ordeal. This is far from the first time that children have been used in terror operations. One recently became a darling of the leftists and many Europeans when the Israelis finally were permitted by Israeli laws to arrest Ahed Tamimi as she was finally of age to be considered and tried as an adult. She was arrested for kicking and striking an IDF soldier while doing all she was able to prevent his performing his assignment, something she had been doing since she was a young child while her father would record every confrontation hoping to get any shot which could be used to portray the IDF in a bad light. One can imagine her shock when the same disruptive and violent attacks on IDF soldiers finally resulted in her arrest after over ten years of doing the same thing undisturbed by paying any price. Immediately her picture with her stylishly wild and curly hair became the pin-up girl of the Israel is a monster groups and she was such a hero standing up to those monstrous IDF soldiers. Let us take into consideration that after over a decade of such activity, after finally reaching the age of responsibility, Ahed Tamimi was finally arrested for her actions. She was not shot, she did not require medical services as she was simply arrested and done so with the least amount of violence as required to arrest a sixteen year old girl who was kicking, screaming, spitting, scratching, biting and doing everything in her power to cause just one IDF soldier to get pushed to the point of using even the slightest of violence as her mother, a cousin and others surrounded her and the soldiers recording every action hoping for that perfect picture which might make it appear undue violence was used. For the record, her mother was also arrested for attacking the same IDF soldiers while they were performing their duty. The Tamini family gave the media a completely different story to the media that the IDF came seeking a confrontation and threatened to attack their home. Their darling daughter was merely protecting their home, for the past decade attacking IDF soldiers for a living. She was given a minimal sentence which many thought a travesty with some thinking she got off easy and others believing she was arrested unlawfully. We will leave this to our audience to figure out which loved and supported Israel and which were in Europe protesting her arrest and damning Israel. These are the same claiming Israel is reacting with disproportional force to peaceful protests and not protecting their border from terrorist infiltration.

The Gaza rioting and attempted invasion of Israel has proven to be very revealing. We, all of us, can use these protests and the reactions to them as a measuring device. Those who are protesting that Israel is overreacting and that these protests are simply peaceful with any reports of violence being misrepresentations and that the only violence has been committed by the IDF can be counted as always being anti-Israel. Those supporting Israel one will find that they have already been supporting Israel and have braved the slings and arrows of outrageous accusation by the other group. These two sides live on other sides of what appears to be an uncrossable line as it appears that almost all those who have chosen one side or the other, will remain on their original side of that divide. Once with Israel, always with Israel and once against Israel always against Israel, that appears to almost be a law. One Israel supporter who has proven invaluable has been Colonel Richard Kemp who can be heard at the Gaza border describing what he as a highly experienced military background and knowledge of the laws of warfare and their applications to modern anti-terror military activities to explain the situation here. We apologize for the wind interference, but when in the desert, weather may not always cooperate. Colonel Kemp recognizes that the Hamas effort is to use civilians as weapons to breach the border and then use such a breach through which to push their terror forces. To get this accomplished, they have sent terrorists armed with knives, firearms, wire cutters and other instruments to either engage the IDF or breach the border fence. The fact is that thusfar the vast majority, approaching 85% or more, of those killed have been Hamas or Islamic Jihad terrorist operatives, as admitted by Hamas. The means by which Israel has been capable of picking out the terrorists and those who have been actively attempting to breach the border is astonishingly accurate which has produced this almost unbelievably high level of shooting only actual terrorists. As for those others, how many were aiding in breaching the border versus those who may have been innocent are figures we are unable to verify or even produce at this time, but the percentage of terrorists was verified by the leaders of Hamas on their television channel (see video below). You cannot hope for better than Hamas spokesperson on their television channel supporting that over 80% of those killed, fifty out of sixty-two, especially when you add the three which Islamic Jihad claimed as their terror operatives, and these figures may not be the complete story as their may be others who are attempting to be heroes by aiding the terror efforts and also been targeted, and this we may never know as the IDF will not release such information as they do not wish to reveal their methods. Every nation’s military has their methods and these methods will be kept as guarded secrets. The IDF is no different. The way the IDF is different is they honestly take great care to not kill innocents to as much an extent as any military could possibly manage. They have set the standard so high that military high officials from Western militaries have complained that the IDF has set the standards too high for them to meet. They have sent officers to learn the techniques used by the IDF to assure that they not target civilians while still being effective and most have concluded that the IDF methods cannot and will not be adopted by their military forces as they refuse to place their soldiers in such peril by utilizing the warning systems used by the IDF.



The horrifying thought behind this display of indifference for their people by Hamas is that it could become the tactic by the Palestinian Authority and Israel’s Arab neighbors. The thought of hundreds of thousands of innocent people driven by their governments to attempt and swarm the Israeli border is absolutely horrifying. The other problem is that this kind of attitude is rewarded by the European Union, the United Nations and demonstrators the world over through their decrying the presumed loss of innocent lives when the vast majority of those killed have been terrorists. The furtherance of this problem is fanned by the media and their lies which have become legion. Nowhere are they reporting that Hamas is paying families between one hundred and three hundred dollars per day depending on their level of participation with those rushing the border fence paid the most. Further, they are paying families from three hundred to five hundred dollars for being injured in order to maximize the people reporting injuries and they are paying five hundred dollars minimum per individual reported killed per family. These remunerations are being paid simply to increase the numbers reported killed and injured as well as to maximize the numbers at least appearing near the border and even encourages youths to rush the border even though they may be killed as their family is paid more for their approaching the fence and if they are injured they get more and if killed, at least they know their family will receive the maximum amount of payment. This is another item being ignored by the world media all so as to make the protests appear to be homegrown and not paid for and with those coming just for the minimum payment, they provide the background pictures of families having lunch as part of their protest or the men all praying and the myriad of other pictures depicting an almost party attitude. This is not a party, not a picnic lunch and nothing but an attempt to swarm the Israeli border. What does Hamas hope to accomplish? Either they swarm the border and get beyond the IDF and are able to murder hundreds if not thousands of Israelis after which the world will mourn the dead Jews as they always do after refusing to protect their rights to life. The other possibility is the IDF refuses to allow swarms to pour into Israel killing Israelis and instead they open fire to stop the people pouring through a breach and Hamas has pictures of hundreds of dead Arabs for the European and American media to portray the IDF as vicious killers. Either alternative Hamas will accept as a great victory, one dead Israeli and the other a propaganda bonanza. Either way Israel loses as we wish not to have to kill innocent Arabs which will attempt to pour through the fence and would then murder or severely injure any Israeli they came upon. That is the reason the IDF would have no other choice but to use everything in their capability to prevent such an eventuality. Hamas will continue to attempt to breach the border for as long as there are useful idiots cheering them on across Europe and North America. The sooner the developed world tires of this story, the safer the border will become for Jew and Arab alike. May that day come soon and may the world finally wake up to the foolishness their hatred of Israel is driving them. One last note, hatred of Israel for Gaza while not making a peep about the Syria slaughter of Palestinians and other Arabs or the Turkish mowing down Kurdish men, women and children in northern Syria or the murders going on daily across the Africa Transition Zone has a name, it goes with choosing only Israel to condemn, and it is called anti-Semitism by every measure.
