Aussie Dave aka Israelly Cool noticed it:
The palestinians, their supporters, and those who do not, but should know, better have been portraying
The proliferation of such proof that the reality in
Indeed, the change is remarkable. The article that Dave quotes, says it quite unequivocally:
What, no starvation? That after years of being taught by Gazan propaganda and their many tame supporters west and east of
Yeah, well, after all you cannot fool all of the people all the time. Too much information on the real situation in Gaza leaked out, and the media lately is saturated by the pictures of stores, bazaars and hotels, so the old tackle doesn’t work as well as it has done for years.
It’s a strong start, ain’t it? And Laila doesn’t mince her words to start with:
Do you notice that “never”? Of course, Laila qualifies that bombshell with “it is a place where many people lack the means to buy food and other goods…”. You would have thought that such people are precisely the reason that UNWRA and the West in general (but not the Arab and Muslim brethren for some reason) are pumping hundreds of millions yearly into Hamastan, but let’s leave it alone.
So, the above mentioned “concentration camp/prison camp – replete with widespread poverty and starvation” is not replete with starvation, as we have learned. And there is a keyword missing now from the formula. And the formula, anyway, is insufficient for the horrors Laila is presenting in her article – concentration camp is, you see, an understatement. I shall leave that concentration camp missive to Laila’s expertise (no, I don’t want to go that easy way, really). Anyway, what makes
But people don’t want handouts and uncertainty and despair; they want their dignity and their freedom, employment and prosperity and possibility. Perhaps most significantly, they want to be able to move freely – something they still cannot do.
So, if we gather the wishlists from the two articles, what is it the people of
- Freedom of movement.
- No more mental anguish, no more posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
How interesting: the same list will be, for sure, collated by the people of Sderot, Beer Sheva, Ashkelon – the whole million Israelis that were in the reach of Gazan rockets (still are, and for all we know, there are new and more potent rockets in Hamas’ warehouses).
Although, come to think of it, most Israelis would add one wish missing from that list. It is peace. It was the reason for the botched disengagement from
Laila’s article, however, doesn’t mention peace. It is all about things that people of
Anyhow, now you see the way propaganda winds have started to blow. Be ready for more mental anguish and more uber-concentration-camp headology.
