Propaganda plays an important role in every conflict.
The current zionist-imperialist war on the Palestinians, however, has fallen to new lows.
Following Hamas’ daring operation launched on October 7 that demolished the myth of zionist invincibility, a massive propaganda war has been launched.
It started with allegations that Hamas had beheaded Israeli civilians.
As if this lie was not bad enough, it was escalated to beheading children.
Then it was alleged that Hamas fighters had raped Israeli women.
What is the truth behind these scandalous allegations and where did they originate from?
Rape allegations were first reported by Jonah Goldberg of the Los Angeles Times on October 9.
The same day, the LA Times issued a retraction saying the rape allegations were NOT verified.
That, however, did not deter US president Joe Biden from repeating them the next day when he spoke about the Israeli attack on Gaza.
Biden said on October 10: “There are moments in this life when pure unadulterated evil is unleashed in this world.”
He went on: “stomach-turning reports of babies being killed” and “women raped, assaulted, paraded as trophies.”
The most boring speaker, Biden’s lying rhetoric got the better of him.
When the president of the United States can utter such bald-faced lies in front of television cameras, what can one expect from his minions and puppets?
On October 10, NBC correspondent in Israel said he could not independently verify the rape or beheading allegations.
More lies were to follow, this time from across the pond.
British Security Minister Tom Tugendhat went even further, giving full rein to his sexually fertile imagination.
He told the presenter of Britain’s Sky News on October 11 that “people in Israel had been raped to death.”
The presenter did not challenge the minister for making false allegations.
Did she not know that not only had Hamas rejected this allegation and other similar vile propaganda but that the LA Times had also retracted this claim?
So, the question that must be asked is: why do the zionists and their western allies peddle such lies?
The simple answer is that demonization of Hamas is essential to justify Israeli war crimes against Gaza’s civilian population.
The zionists are using US-supplied F-15 and F-16 planes to bomb the tiny Gaza Strip and destroy its infrastructure.
It is also using phosphorous bombs that are banned under international law, against the Palestinian people.
It has frequently bombed Gaza since 2008 after the zionist invaders were driven out of the tiny enclave in 2005.
Israel attacked Gaza in 2008-2009, 2012, 2014, 2018, 2020, 2021, 2022 and again in 2023.
If the zionist war criminals believe they can terrorize the Palestinian people into submission, they must be the most stupid people in the world.
What did the zionists achieve in their previous wars on Gaza?
They destroyed much of Gaza’s infrastructure and killed thousands of innocent Palestinians.
Did that force the Palestinians to surrender?
In Israel’s latest murderous bombing campaign, at least 1095 civilians in Gaza have been killed, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
At least 60% are women and children.
This number will certainly rise as the zionists continue to bomb the besieged enclave.
Electricity, water, fuel and food have also been cut off to the 2.2 million inhabitants.
This constitutes a war crime, according the UN Special Rapporteur for Palestine.
Israel is a terrorist state.
It is backed by such other terrorists as Joe Biden, Rishi Sunak and a host of other war criminals.
The Palestinian people refuse to disappear.
They will resist and fight until they have overthrown the yoke of zionist colonialism and achieved their freedom.
