The mainstream media in Europe, the United States, around the world, and even throughout Israel is keeping a dirty little secret under wraps as to admit to its existence would ruin the perfect image of the poor and downtrodden Palestinians being victimized by the big, bad, mean Israelis. The secret has numerous facets of which I will recount some of the most flagrant examples of the conspiracy to hide the truth. Every once in a while there will be a report that a few rockets or mortars were fired from Gaza into southern Israel. These reports are usually forced into the public eye due to injuries or the miracles which happen with regularity where the round hits a schoolyard or smashes into a classroom and either does not explode or explodes but the children had just been moved to another location in the school for other activities. The former is reported as when there are Israelis hospitalized or worse from these attacks the particular attack cannot be kept secret any longer. With the miracles which have occurred more times than I can count, are reported partially to prove that these attacks are harmless as nobody was injured despite a school or home or other structure being hit and partially destroyed. What is almost never reported unless you read <a href=http://www.israelnationalnews.com/ target=blank>Arutz Sheva</a> or live in Sederot or other community near the Gaza border is the affect the often daily rocket attacks and the sounding of the Code Red sirens has on the people who live under this constant threat, especially the older citizens and the children. There have been numerous reports made by healthcare officials and psychologists about the stress induced problems, especially on the children many of whom have developed sleep disorders among other problems.
Along the same locations there is also the sniper fire and the placement of IEDs (improvised explosive devices) near the fence between Gaza and southern Israel where these are used to ambush IDF personnel and vehicles which monitor the border road. The threats which at one time only included those Israelis living within a few miles of Gaza have now been extended with the longer range and larger payload carrying rockets to now reach to all of Ashkelon, Beer-Sheba and now Eilat as similar rocket and mortar attack have begun to be launched out of the Sinai into even more of the south of Israel. As the terror groups within Gaza receive more and more of the stronger, larger and more accurate armaments the areas of Israel coming under threat and the ability to make more accurate selection of targets continues to increase. Soon we will see these attacks from within Gaza reaching all the way to Tel Aviv at which time the media will have no choice but to cover such attacks. But in the meantime, as long as the attacks are only targeting some of the poorest towns kibbutzim and developments, the news will willfully ignore them as they are not striking anything the elites find valuable. Soon they are going to get the rudest of awakenings and will be asking the question, “Where did this come from and why did we not know about this threat?” What will the media say then?
On to the other front which gets an even less respect and reporting from the press; the area they call the West Bank instead of using its real names of Judea and Samaria. The purpose of using the term West Bank in place of Judea and Samaria is to keep hidden the historical relevance these lands had as the heart of the ancient Jewish lands. I mean Judea, how can Judea be anything but Jewish, it is the root from which the term Judaism originates. Also, by changing the name they are able to blur the full meaning and intents of the myriad of papers, declarations, decrees, treaties, and inclusionary terms in founding documents all of which distinctly place all of Judea and Samaria as well as all of the rest of the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea as the intended lands for the Jewish homeland. Truth be told, originally the Jewish homeland also included all of Jordan. But as that was signed off on in an agreement that the area today known as Jordan and originally Transjordan would be the Arab Palestine whiles the remaining lands west of the Jordan River were to be Jewish Palestine. The media avoids any reference to the original definition of who was a Palestinian. Before 1964 if a person was referred to as a Palestinian, they were Jewish. The Arabs were called Egyptian, Syrian, or simply Arabs. On rare occasions they were referred to as Arab Palestinian, but never as simply Palestinian. During the World War II the Palestinian Brigade consisted of Jewish soldiers fighting with the British. The Arab forces that entered World War II did entered on the side of the Axis powers, in particular with Germany.
In the lands of Judea and Samaria there have been escalating attacks made on Jewish motorists by rock and Molotov throwing, carjacking, and sniper fire. The rock and carjacking have become daily occurrences which the mainstream media chooses to ignore. Even when they have covered it, the coverage has only included the initial findings of the authorities which are most often that the vehicle was in a single vehicle accident. It is often later that the attack is reclassified as a terrorist attack but why change the story at such a late date. Even when one of these rock attacks murdered a father and infant son, Asher Palmer and his infant son Yonatan, the authorities listed this event as reckless driving. This determination was made despite the small amounts of evidence to the contrary such as the large rock in the back of the van, the large hole in the windshield just above the steering wheel about the same diameter as the rock and the smashed in face of the father with an indentation about the same size as the aforementioned rock. It took over a day and a half before the Police finally surrendered to the findings that a thrown rock may have caused the accident that tragically took these innocent Israeli lives. One such rock attack was filmed and despite the evidence that the car was swerving to avoid the attack, the driver was subsequently arrested and charged with attempted murder for striking an Arab youth who had run straight in front of the car and thrown a rock point-blank at the windshield. The charges were eventually dropped. But why is the press ignoring all these attacks? Whatever could be their purpose?
This is where the truth gets really sickening. Why does the media refuse to report there are daily occurrences of terrorist activities against Israelis, usually Jewish Israelis but not exclusively as some Arab Christian and even Arab Muslims have ended up on the receiving end of these rock attacks simply due to their having the wrong type of license plates (Israeli plates)? They avoid reporting this for two reasons, it would be too repetitive with reports saying the same basic thing just sometimes differing locations each day, and it would spoil the narrative. What narrative you ask? The narratives that the Palestinians are always the victims and on the receiving end of harsh and cruel Israeli oppression while the Jews live the high life with no regard for the Palestinians. The Palestinians have to be portrayed in the kindest and most flattering light while the Israeli “settlers” must be portrayed as interlopers stealing the land and the food out of the Palestinians’ mouths. It must be shown that the Arabs are having their land stolen by Jews while the IDF stands by with their rifles forcing the Palestinians off their native soil. It can never come to light that the vast majority of these people being referred to as the Palestinians are also recent emigrants who came to the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea seeking better employment which was available as the Zionists turned swamps and desolate wastelands into profitable farms and industry. The most common names of “Palestinian” families are also very common names of Egyptian and Syrian families and if you research the vast majority of the so-called Palestinians you would find they have numerous relatives back in the homeland from which their names indicate is their actual heritage.
One last little item which will be another example of the truth you have not been told. Most have heard that name which strikes the notes of oppression of the Palestinians. That word is “Naqba” which means catastrophe and is currently used to denote the Palestinian response to Israeli Independence Day. But this was not the original use of the word Naqba. It had a much earlier and vastly different meaning which had absolutely nothing to do with Israel, the Jews, and was used when Palestinian equaled a Jew living in the British Mandate Lands. Simply try a little experiment and search the terms, Naqba Syria France Britain 1920, and let the true and original meaning of the word Naqba be revealed. You will find that the Naqba was the division of greater Syria between France and Britain thus cutting the southern Syrians off from their beloved Damascus. The commonly thought of meaning it denotes today did not come into being until the earliest the late 1970s and mainstream usage in the 1990s. Like so many of the terms and presumed history and facts surrounding the “Palestinians”, it is all stolen from other times, peoples, and histories. The one thing that remains true and cannot be challenged is that the only country in all of recorded history to reside between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea with Jerusalem as its Capital has been the Jewish State whether it was known as Israel or Judea.
