As the Israeli war on the people of Gaza intensifies, the US-led western front continues to stick to the Israeli narrative about the events, in total disregard for the thousands of victims and massive destruction caused by the Israeli war machine.
Since the start of the events, the US-led western front has united its efforts in support of the Israeli occupation and its alleged right to “self-defence”. Unprecedented support was directed to the Israelis, while Palestinians were left on their own in the face of a real holocaust committed by the Israeli forces.
From the beginning, the ‘fascist’ Benjamin Netanyahu did not pursue diplomatic networking or international tours to gain widespread support. Spreading false information about “beheaded children” and “raped women” was sufficient for him to get the necessary backing from the Western media. Every Israeli war on Gaza has employed the same tactic.
Though regarded as a fundamental justification for committing massacres and waging war, the lie did not hold up. The White House swiftly withdrew it, and it became apparent that all that had been presented in this context was fake propaganda, fuelled by a rumour started by someone and reinforced by an artificially created image of a dog meant to look like a burned child’s body. Despite this, the media outlets did not apologise for publishing unverified material and continued to spread the lie in an effort to justify the Israeli occupation’s “self-defence”.
Over the past seventy-five years, the occupying forces have consistently carried out all these massacres without needing specific excuses. It is founded on atrocities and devastation, as demonstrated by the four preceding wars fought in the Gaza Strip. But, this time, a reason for expediting the extermination of the last few Palestinians must exist.
The Gaza Holocaust is unmistakable, but the Western front and its media outlets deliberately turn a blind eye to the huge destruction and thousands of victims that have resulted from the Israeli bombing. The murder of women, children and the elderly; the burning of bodies; the killing of foetuses in their mothers’ bellies; the bodies piled under the rubble; the children who wrote their names on their bodies so that their names would be known after they died; the destruction of mosques, churches, hospitals and schools; and the lack of food, water and medicine did not break their conscience enough to demand an end to this madness.
