3 Lies the Media is Telling about the Hamas Gaza Attack Riots

Written by:

The media lies about Israel.

It’s been at it ever since the left changed its position (briefly turning pro-Israel after the Holocaust before reverting to the previous anti-Israel position). And it never stops. The Hamas attacks on Israel proved to be useful counterprogramming to the dedication of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

And the media has predictably been lying about it.

1. The Gaza attacks are not popular civilian grass-roots protests.

They’re calculated attacks organized by Hamas. The Muslim Brotherhood terror group is reportedly offering protesters $100 each. Hamas terrorists have used the front line rioters as human shields, hanging back, waiting for them to breach the fence, before going in and carrying out attacks against Israelis.

We’ve already seen at least one effort to plant an explosive device and gunmen operating in the area.

2. The embassy is not the issue.

The attacks predated the embassy dedication and postdate it. Hamas organizers have indicated that they intend to keep going into June. Their theme is the return/invasion of Israel by violent, armed racist mobs. It’s not the Embassy March, but the Great Return March.

The upsurge in violence is predictable because violence in the region tends to spike in the summer months. If you look back at the patterns of Hamas and Hezbollah violence, they get ramped up in the spring and the summer.

If there were no embassy, the violence would still be happening.

3. Casualty numbers are meaningless

First, any casualty numbers coming out of Gaza are propaganda. Hamas and its people are notorious for inflating casualty figures for political effect, both on their side and on the Israeli side.

Second, Hamas and its media allies have a history of misreporting whether the dead are members of Hamas or other Islamic groups. We’ve seen this throughout the riots when supposedly civilian casualties turned out to be members of terror groups.

Third, when a terrorist group decides to use civilians as human shields for its attacks, there will inevitably be significant numbers of civilian casualties. That’s what happened in Iraq and Afghanistan. But the media is much less interested in reporting on the collateral damage in the fight against ISIS. But when the US or Israel fight terrorists that use human shields, it becomes the only issue.

And the only thing that accomplishes is to reward the human shield strategy and that leads to its widespread use and an increase in civilian casualties.

Finally, when you participate in a terrorist group’s attack, it’s highly debatable as to whether you are still a civilian. Arguably there are no civilians in these attacks.

Hamas is a racist, genocidal terrorist organization. Anyone who participates in its attacks is, at best, committing war crimes. And at worst is a terrorist.
