The body counts and the sheer number of dead and wounded cannot be overestimated, this is a full-throttle engagement and the Israeli Occupying Forces are ruthless, the willingness of those occupiers to ethnically cleanse every square centimeter of stolen land knows no limit. Once again, settlers who had not qualms about stealing Palestine property, bulldozing every home. They kill at will and without compunction. They enjoy the fireworks from a convenient distance and celebrate each death. It is all a game to those without a moral compass and Zionism is just another European colonial project that they enjoy with relish. Please note that power and position is reserved for the Zionists who have always wielded the force. Power, force, and position are all guaranteed by the full faith investments of US imperial interests. The military hegemony alone rakes in $3.8 billion per year, geopolitical interests do not recognize the existence of a people who have occupied Palestine continuously for thousands of years.
What about those body counts and arsenals, are they equal in any way? The propaganda mills in Israel maintain that Gaza “forces” have fired 3,000 missiles into southern Israel. Hamas counts their weapons (armaments that are comprised of WWI level mortars) as 200. Where is the disconnect? Do the Israeli Occupiers observe that the fireworks propelled from Gaza seldom land anywhere near occupied neighborhoods, those neighborhoods being the homes of Palestinians before they were stolen in 1948.
As always, the NY Times, NPR…any media giant that does not cover the facts on the ground ignore any mention that even slightly criticizes the thousands of victims tabulated over the last 73 years. The system is not only gamed, the game extends along nearly every media source. Read them at face value and you will continue to live in a media bubble that focuses merely upon the interplay of bread and circuses. No bloody details do they cover, and nearly all the blood spilled is on the side of the occupied. Protest the most moral army in the world and you’ll be cut down at the knee. Hence the number of amputees you see among the youth who take on the beacon from their parents because Palestine is forever.
Thanks for reading.
