Warning! Mr Netanyu’s government propaganda machine is now working overtime thru its Foreign Affairs Ministry in London, New York, Paris and Washington to try to persuade you that Hamas is identical to ISIS, the Islamist State in Syria and other terrorist organisations.
That is, of course, political propaganda. The reality is that Hamas is the democratically elected government in Gaza that provides the social services and security to its 1.8 million inhabitants against the backdrop of an illegal Israeli blockade of essential services now in its seventh year!
Security is obviously now impossible as a consequence of the unprecedented state-directed terrorism of the Israeli government as it continues to bomb and slaughter civilians with its US-supplied warplanes, helicopter gunships, missile launchers and cluster bombs against a virtually unarmed population.
It is a blood-soaked catastrophe openly taking place in front of a world, apparently silenced by its links to the Israel-lobby-controlled, US-congress. It is, in fact, a terrorist campaign not unlike that of ISIS in Syria. That is the true comparison as evidenced by the media and television.
It is unfortunate that many of us are sadly just too lazy to enquire as to what is factual and that which is fabricated half-truth disseminated by the paid trolls of a foreign government.
Facts are sacred, whilst propaganda is for those prepared to be associated with the destruction of a city and the summary execution of its residents – families just like yours or mine in London, Manchester, Manhattan, New York, Paris or Lille. But these families are in Gaza, in the bombed-out remnants of a destroyed civilian conurbation in which hospitals and schools have also been bombed and terrorised.
