On the night of August 8 – 9, 2018, Israel was again under massive attack from the Gaza Strip.
Whereupon the BBC produced the following headline:
Not a single word that more than 150 rockets had been fired previously at Israel from Gaza. It was only when Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nachshon complained that the BBC mentioned the massive missile attacks.
The BBC’s original headline was simply scurrilous. The BBC refuses to simply acknowledge and adequately report on the following reality:
Israel was attacked on a massive scale! During the past years, Israel has been continually attacked by rocket fire and by incendiary devices, while terrorists try to breach border areas and commit murder. Israeli civilians are forced to seek protection in bunkers. Children must quickly evacuate kindergartens.
On the night of August 8-9, 2018, barrages of missiles were fired at Israel. Large parts of southern Israel lie now in ruins, especially because incendiary kites have devastated entire regions. Israel defends itself by retaliating against rocket launch sites.
Israel has every right to defend itself.
Israel is not the aggressor.
Israel is not anteing up the spiral of violence.
Israel is not pouring oil on the fire.
Israel is simply defending itself!
Hamas fires every single missile towards schools, hospitals, retirement homes, mosques, synagogues and churches! The goal of every rocket is to kill as many Israelis as possible, whether they are children or old men. Hamas states the motivation for the attacks on civilians in its charter. Article 7 demands the extermination of the entire Jewish people worldwide! Hamas leaders and preachers describe Jews as a bacteria that must be eradicated. Even Arab children are urged in TV educational programs to hate Jews and to kill them.
The intention of every rocket against Israel is to carry out mass murder!
Hamas’s mass murder fails for only one reason: Israel has established an excellent defensive system and protects its own people. In Gaza, however, people are dying because Hamas is abusing its population. Israel uses weapons to protect people. Hamas, however, uses people to protect its weapons, weapons with which to commit mass murder of Jews.
Hamas attacks Israeli schools and at the same time uses its own schools to hammer hatred of Jews into children’s brains. They misuse civilians to shield the weapons that are fired at Israel, only to lament all the louder when those children die who have been abused as human shields and as child soldiers. Whoever shows photos of those unfortunate dead children are playing into the hands of those child murderers, and even bears responsibility if more children die in the propaganda war against Israel.
Not Israel’s retaliation kills but rather the aggression and inhumanity of Hamas!
With such headlines as the BBC has produced, the news broadcaster is actually participating in the war against Israel and the Jews!
All media that print images of dead children in this war are part of the problem, for it is Hamas‘ intention to „produce“ these dead children in order to morally weaken Israel – and the verb „produce“ is exactly the right word to sum up the inhumanity of Hamas. Hamas‘ propaganda feeds on the deaths of children.
All politicians who criticize Israel for defending itself, who carry on about disproportionately and accuse Israel of purposely killing civilians, are taking sides in a propaganda war against Israel. Hamas deliberately stashes its weapons behind civilians in order to make them casualties, because they know very well that reports on civilian deaths are well received by the European critics of Israel. If Europeans wouldn’t get all so horny when they see photographs of dead children and civilians, Hamas would certainly not „produce“ so many dead civilians and children.
The principle of supply and demand prevails. There is a market in Europe for images of dead Palestinian children and Hamas meets this demand. It’s all about „producing“ images of dead children and civilians in order to weaken Israel.
The BBC’s method of reporting is a weapon in the war against Israel.
Not a single Israeli missile is fired with intent to kill civilians, but rather with clear warnings beforehand. Every Hamas missile, however, aims to kill as many people, including children, as possible. That’s the big difference!
The weakness of the Arab side doesn’t represent any moral superiority. Hamas aims for mass murder, but they are not able to carry out that intention. Israel, however, could hit back much harder, but doesn’t! Israel loves life and wants to protect it, including the lives of children and the innocent on the side of its sworn enemies who propagate violence and hate in their schools, mosques, parliaments and television programs.
No country on earth would act as coolly as Israel in the face of officially declared genocide, especially if those intentions were expressed in a barrage of rockets. Israel’s concern for the lives of its enemies is exemplary. Considering all the children who are being used by Hamas as human shields, all the child soldiers being educated in Arab schools, all the terror tunnels being built under hospitals and all the missiles being stored near United Nations facilities in the Gaza Strip, it’s remarkable that Arab casualties are so small.
If Hamas had used all the money that it has spent on rockets and tunnels instead to build up Gaza, all hospitals, power stations, retirement homes and mosques would be in good shape and also be perfectly equipped. With all the money Gaza has received, Gaza should actually be one of the richest areas in the Middle East! However, the desire to destroy Israel and the hatred of Jews consumes all those funds. Israel and Jews don’t pose a danger to Palestinian Arabs, but rather the hatred of Israel and the hatred of Jews! Hatred doesn’t lead to prosperity!
Israel would rather have its Arab neighbors as business partners than as adversaries.
Israel takes unprecedented precautions to warn the civilian population before any military action takes place. In order to destroy Israel, Hamas is willing to sacrifice its own people. But Hamas won’t succeed, because Israel makes every effort to avoid civilian casualties. Former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir summed it up this attitude in a few words:
„We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.“
The weakness of the Arab side by no means represents moral superiority.
It’s a good thing when the haters are too weak to carry out their hatred of Jews. But, it’s disgusting when a European news broadcaster is critical of Jews defending themselves.
