Paul Weston returns with a sardonic take on the international media and their ostentatious hand-wringing over those Poor, Poor Palestinian Children.
Child-Murdering Jewish Nasties
by Paul Weston
OMG!!! Have u seen what those Isralis r doing in Gazza? It’s like, totally murderous and unfair and like, really murderous! You no wat I mean? Why r these jews trying 2 kill as many Pallystinians kids as poss? I’m like, totally grossed out by them, I’ve been watching the MSM news and cant believe how this can be happening in todays day and age. I prey for peace and rainbows and prey that these innocent children be stopped being killed by brownshirted Jewsih nasties. I heard from one of my mates at uni, that the jews have like, invnted missiles that only target muslin children and my mate got it from someone who, like, works at the BBC and is like, you know, an expert on these fings.
And who can really blame such a typical attitude from such a typically half-witted, semi-educated product of progressive liberalism’s Western majority? If you rely on the MSM for your news, then what other opinion could you possibly hold? The less-than-curious amongst us have been subjected to a barrage of breathtakingly biased journalistic output from Gaza, with a particularly repellent fixation on dead Palestinian children, murdered we are unceasingly told, by Israeli Jews who are acting in a thoroughly disproportionate manner.
In actuality, there are deliberate child killers in this awful conflict in Gaza, but they are not the Israelis. Rather, they consist of a sinister multi-headed monster comprised of Hamas, Palestinians, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) and the Western media and Western charities such as (rather ironically) Save the Children.
Semi-educated left/liberals will stop reading at this point. Despite their twitterish excitement over the opening paragraph, they do not wish to hear an unbiased, adult, educated take on Gaza, even if it means fewer dead Palestinian children in the future. But perhaps they should read further, if only to re-tweet excerpts to their sordid little friends as an example of typical right-wing lunacy — in their opaque eyes.
Getting down to the important issues here, what did Hamas think it was likely to achieve by lobbing thousands of rockets into Israel? Clearly, the obliteration of Israel and the slaughter of its Jewish inhabitants — as per the Hamas Charter — was not a realistic ambition despite, its being a fervent desire.
No, the point of lobbing rockets into Israel, and the kidnapping, mutilation and murder of three Israeli teenagers, was done for one reason and one reason only — to provoke a reaction by Israel which could then be broadcast to the Western world as an act of disproportionate aggression. It is thus a propaganda war dependent entirely in this social media age of photographs of dead children as opposed to photographs of victoriously bearded Arab soldiers overrunning enemy positions.
Without dead children, the propaganda war is lost. No one is interested in seeing dead Hamas soldiers, because, quite frankly, even ill-informed liberals see the need for a response to Hamas rockets aimed at Israeli civilians. But dead children, hey? No one can ignore them, so the Hamas machine and the Western media cranked into action.
I am not going to bore readers with the many links substantiating what I am about to say, but they are all out there if you WANT to utilise Google. Hamas has deliberately placed its rocket launchers in the middle of civilian areas and within schools, hospitals and refugee centres. Hamas has threatened Western media types with violence if they disclose this fact. Some have indeed disclosed it, but only after they were safely out of Gaza. Hamas has forced Palestinian children to stay close to rocket launch areas because as I said earlier, without dead children there was little point in goading Israel into a response.
And by golly, it works well. Hamas knows exactly how to pull the strings of biased journalists, who then go on to pull the heart strings of vapid liberals the Western world over. The Daily Mail ran an obviously staged Pallywood production of a father mercilessly gunned down by a purported Israeli sniper who fired magic bullets that produced no blood. The Daily Telegraph ran a full page article with graphics thoughtfully provided of the dead children and dead babies, along with their names, all killed by Israel, according to the headline. Save the Children took out a full page advert in the same newspaper, listing the names and ages of children killed in the conflict — by heartless Israel.
What a lot of research to gain such detailed figures! The organisations responsible for collating this data are all Agitprop organisations, all Palestinian or linked to Palestinian pressure groups, all thoroughly and utterly biased and all bought hook, line and sinker by the Western media.
The result of all this is anti-Semitic violence ramping up all across the Western world. When one considers how easy it is to be prosecuted for deliberately inciting racial and religious violence these days, one can only wonder just why so many Western media outlets are not in the dock for transgressing laws introduced to soothe community cohesion… it is almost as though said laws apply only to those who criticise Islam rather than those who incite genuine, reported violence against Jews.
And it is worse than this. Hundreds of thousands of people are being murdered in a variety of incredibly sadistic ways by Muslim militants all across the Middle East, yet there are never names, ages or photographs detailed by the media. Only Israel. Only Jews. Muslims are blameless.
Left/liberals need to understand they are complicit in the killing of Palestinian children in Gaza. Hamas has engineered the killing of their own children in order to delegitimise Israel. In a war Hamas cannot militarily win, they are prepared to sacrifice, to martyr, their own children. If they were held to account for this by a responsible Western media then they would stop deliberately placing their children in the direct line of a legitimate Israeli response to rocket attacks.
But they are not held to account by the left/liberal media, and everything has gone just as planned. Lots of dead children. Widespread revulsion toward Israel. Anti-Semitic attacks raging across the Western world. Happy Hamas. Happy BBC. Unhappy Israel. Perfect!
Yes, it is ultimately Israel which pulled the trigger, but if dangerously naïve and ill-informed left/liberals were removed from the equation, Hamas would never sacrifice their children in order to cold bloodedly and calculatingly gain their sympathy. So here we are today: sympathy for a murderous terrorist organisation that deliberately causes the killing its own children for political ends, and revulsion for a liberal democracy seeking to defend itself against a terrorist movement which wishes to liquidate every last Israeli, including children and babies.
Conclusion: Left/liberals and the Western media are directly responsible for the deaths of these Palestinian children in Gaza, and 100% literally have their blood on their hands.
