  1. Its not “israel and hamas”…its israel plus america and gaza.

    Big difference. And the gaza people have been starved out and drove out, just like isis is doing to the people it has deemed lesser animals. So any photos of gaza where people are being openly murdered via systemic and state sponsored genocide are equal in significance to those coming out of iraq.

    But america says it wants to save one and not the other. Of course america is lying, but why does it not at least attempt to lie about wanting tosave gaza?

    • Excellent post. You just left out the clarifying explanation that those responsible for the human atrocities are members of Hamas who plant lethal instruments of war in private homes, hospitals, and mosques.

    • “Hillary clinton criticizes obama foreign policy, strongly defends israel”

      First off, let me point out headlines concerning israel would not mention “defending” it so much if it were not in the wrong.

      But out comes a former snake of one liberal color, now changing its color as it needs to posture for campaigning. She criticizes harshly a former collegues foreign policy now…and criticizes genocide by isis while at the same time endorses genicide by the jewish state blaming the victim…the ones dying.

      Folks. Bottom line is all you can expect from american government is lies to fit the moment. What we have today ruling over us is not worth continuing. America is the greatest terrorist mob on the planet.


        “Once a state-endorsed narrative of a questionable event has been presented to and conveyed by the mainstream news media, it is almost invariably accepted without question by “Inner Party” members. Such silence is abetted by a mechanical allegiance to prevailing authority figures and institutional power. In possessing such a worldview one reflexively forfeits personal integrity to uphold the collective publicity of the unspeakable and an overarching faith in the given sociopolitical system’s artificial spontaneity. Alternative interpretations of such events by the laity can be dismissed out-of-hand as “conspiracy theories,” thereby further confirming the Party’s creed.”
