The Israeli propaganda machine has made much of the lie that Hamas have used Gazans as ‘human shields’ by fighting the Israeli invaders while civilians have been present in the battle zone. The reality is that Palestinian fighters have actually been trying to protect Gazan civilians from being slaughtered by Israeli ground troops and tanks because the whole of the Gaza Strip is a battle zone and civilians have absolutely nowhere to go and are being deliberately targeted.
The myth that Israel does not deliberately target civilians has now been well and truly exposed. The recent shelling and bombing of the UN facility that the Israelis knew was sheltering civilians has exposed to the world who the true war criminals are. Furthermore, while Israel have been accusing Hamas of using their civilians as ‘human shields’, the simple fact is that it is Israel that have been using their civilians as human shields by deliberately putting them in harms way by provoking Hamas to fire rockets and mortars at them in order to provide a casus belli to bomb, invade and occupy the Gaza.
The Israelis deliberately bombed the Gaza on 4 November 2008 killing six Palestinians for no other reason other than to provoke Palestinian fighters to fire rockets and mortars into southern Israel. Israeli politicians and authorities deliberately and knowingly put innocent Israeli citizens at risk so that Israel would have an excuse to invade the Gaza and slaughter the Palestinian people there.
Not content with committing war crimes against their enemies, the Zionists are quite happy to contrive the deliberate deaths of their own people in order to achieve a political and propaganda advantage.
It is time the ordinary Israeli people threw out the monsters that would use them as cannon fodder before they destroy entirely even their own people.
