The myths and the lies of the war against Gaza as exposed in the second day of the war

The Zionist believed in their absolute superiority over the Palestinians, the Lebanese and other Arab nations and that they could kill wounded and arrest Palestinians without serious consequences for themselves. They did not think that the resistance of the Gazans could be effective and their arrogance cost them the image of a super powerful force. In the past in military clashes between the resistance and the Zionist army the rate of the deaths was one Israeli to 20 Palestinians. In this round, well planned by the Palestinians fighters, the rate Israeli deaths is higher than the Palestinians and this is in spite of the small number of Gazan fighters against the fourth strongest army and in spite of Israel flattering whole buildings with the residents. According to what is published 200 Palestinians are dead and 2000 wounded (in reality probably higher) and 400 Israeli are dead and close to 2000 injured. Thus, whatever will be the final results in this round the fear from the powerful Israel is dying.

The other myth that is dead is that Israel is fighting terrorists while the Zionists are shooting hospitals, ambulances, journalists destroying high rise buildings on their civilians who live in these houses. Thus, while the aim of the Palestinian fighters is to take Israelis as prisoners and to exchange them for the political prisoners in the hands of Israel. The resistance took so far 100 Israelis for this exchange, the aim of the Zionist is a genocide of the Gazan people.

The big lie of the Zionist propaganda is that the resistance began the war without any provocation. It is true that the Zionists were surprised but the resistance reacted against constant provocations. It began by expelling the Palestinian peasants from the lands they worked for and continued with provocation around the Western Wall. The expulsion of 700,000-900,000 Palestinians in 1947-8 and 30-40 massacres. It continues with the shooting of Palestinians who tried to return to their lands. The occupation of 1967 the ethnic cleansing that followed it. The arrest and imprisonment of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians since the beginning of the 1967 occupation, the visit to pray in the al Aqsa courtyards with the growing movement that want to destroy the mosques and build a Jewish temple instead. In the theft of lands by the settlers in the West-Bank. Pogrom by the settlers protected by the Zionist army. The destruction of homes and schools. In the chauvinist marches in East Jerusalem in what the Zionist call “day of Jerusalem”. The Killing journalists and shooting ambulances, curfews, administrative detention, torture, all of these acts are provocations.

Another myth that is dying is the Zionist belief that Hezbollah is too afraid of Israel. Today Israel fired barrages of artillery into southern Lebanon after Hezbollah targeted three Israeli military positions in the disputed Shebaa Farms

“Israel will face an existential threat if Hezbollah, Iranian militias in Iraq and Syria, and Palestinian terrorists from Judea and Samaria join the fighting, former National Security Advisor Giora Eiland said in a chilling assessment on Sunday.” [1]

Another Zionist myth is dying. The Myth that the people of Egypt accept the repression of the Palestinians. Two Israeli tourists were killed in Egypt today. Another stupid assumption is that the USA will force Israel to give up on the lands occupied in 1967 in order to form a Palestinian state.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Saturday decried the “unconscionable” assault by Hamas militants and his administration pledged to ensure Israel has “what it needs to defend itself” after the surprise attack that drew worldwide condemnation and anger from Israel’s allies.

Biden said from the White House that he told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the United States “stands with the people of Israel in the face of these terrorist assaults. Israel has the right to defend itself and its people, full stop. There’s never a justification for terrorist attacks and my administration’s support for Israel’s security is rock solid and unwavering.’’

The president also warned Israel’s enemies that “this is not a moment for any party hostile to Israel to exploit these attacks to seek advantage. The world is watching.”

Biden said he would keep in close touch with Netanyahu, and had called Jordan’s King Abdullah II and members of Congress to discuss the situation” [2]
