Those dirty, stinking Arabs, huh?

The other day DPF posted about Pallywood, the home-made propaganda clips Palestinians release to the media whenever the Israeli govt decides to use them for target practice.  Right-wingers keep a close eye on propaganda released by these uppity wogs who object to being killed in their homes, so the amateur efforts are usually easily spotted.

In the comments, Luc Hansen pointed readers to a different video, and for me this video highlighted one of the reasons Palestinians make fake propaganda videos for the western media (the other reasons being things like not have a govt, military and compliant media to do a professional propaganda job).  That video is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ytoMxhYNkxA&noredirect=1.  I suggest that if a roasted toddler struggling through its last breaths isn't the kind of thing you feel up to viewing, don't view it.

The point is, this is what the real video looks like.  If you get regular military forces to attack a densely populated urban area with heavy weapons, roasted toddlers struggling through their last breaths is the entirely foreseeable outcome.  The thing is, western media won't put those videos on the news.  What they will show is suitably dramatic footage of an unharmed-looking person being carried away "wounded," so that's what the locals give them - providing them with footage of horribly injured children would be pointless.

So what you're saying is that it is a massive fail, milt? That faking videos is counter to their cause, because it makes people think that they're all faked, and that the human toll is therefore massively overstated.

Do you have any videos of Israeli children gasping for breathe? Because they're being targeted indiscriminately.


Spam.

Hamas deploy their rocket launchers from densely populated areas, deliberately choosing schools, mosques etc to create outrage from retaliatory action.

If they stopped lobbing hundreds of rockets into Israel, targeting civilians, there would be peace. They have made it clear on many occasions, that peace is not their objective.

Stephen Sizer has a better balance on this shambles. Both sides are manipulative in the extreme and I'm not sure I'd prefer a hard line Zionist over a radical Muslim. I find Christian support of the Jews at the expense of the Palestinian christians (who get it from both sides) because of dodgy theology particularly annoying.

FFM: thanks for providing a handy illustration of "Right-wingers keep a close eye on propaganda released by these uppity wogs who object to being killed in their homes."

So what you're saying is that it is a massive fail, milt?

Not really. The media use the videos to illustrate their reports, and the question of whether some of them are faked or not is of interest only to right-wing bloggers.

If they stopped lobbing hundreds of rockets into Israel, targeting civilians, there would be peace.

If they'd just accept their dispossession and oppression, there'd be peace? Well, yes, but how that would be a great outcome isn't obvious.

You're pushing shit uphill again, Milt.

Those dirty stinking Jews, huh?
'.. On Nov. 18, while Tel Aviv and other population centers were under rocket attacks, Israel transferred 80 truckloads of food and medical equipment into Gaza, according to an official announcement. Israeli border personnel facilitated transfer of the convoys at great risk to themselves. The crossings have come under repeated attacks by Hamas..'

Widely reported in the same media which features both real and fake Arab casualties, of course.

Psycho Milt said...

I guess it's no surprise American Drinker's authors think that blockading the place and attacking it with heavy weapons is outweighed by the occasional sending in of a few truckloads of emergency supplies, but most people have a less errant moral compass.

Spam said...

So what is your solution, milt? Does it involve genocide?

Because I'm pretty sure Hamas' solution does.

gravedodger said...

Milt, does the dispossession and oppression date back a couple of thousand years when the Babylonians then the Romans caused mass exodus and deaths of Jews or just the recent political moves that are exploited by Arab Oil revenues and the Political implications in New York and US politics generally.
Odd how over a million Arabs seem to make it in Israel while the pawns are the disaster they are in Gaza.

I posted these links on Crusader Rabbit yesterday. Often the headlines come via Associated Press or Reuters, the liberal propaganda machines. During the Israel – Lebanon conflict their bias was really exposed. Have a look at these two links:

In this one the same guy is in every staged photo:

In this one the photos have been clearly photo-shopped

Well, good on you for not trusting propaganda photos to be accurate representations of what actually happened. I suspect that the authors of those blogs tend to lack a similar level of skepticism when it comes to certain other parties' propaganda photos, though.

You're right in one respect: western media companies should be ashamed of themselves for running photos like those - they should instead be running images like the one in the video I linked to above, but they lack the bollocks.

Hamas wouldn't like it either.. there's absolutely no propaganda value in photos of distraught mothers embracing goo.

Hamas and the rest of that mob need victims, they need victims that look pretty, innocent, young.. and largely intact. Their religion, their culture and their manic hatred of the Jews demands regular bloodlettings and suffering to keep the base properly programmed, the lefties in the world to show ritual contempt and hatred of the Jews and the UN to keep funding this longest running subsidy going.

If Pallywood failed in its objectives the money, support and hatred would die and they would actually have to form a nation and work for a living.

@ GD 6.44

If you want to revisit history GD read the bible and see why the chosen ones got a kicking. They have consistently behaved badly and God eventually tired of trying to teach them and brought about a new (but long promised) covenant to make it possible for reconciliation. That generally got ignored as well and in AD70 prophecies about the terrifying end of the temple came to pass.

The Jews today are entitled to defend themselves for sure and the stupid Arabs are not helping their own cause but the Jewish persecutions in the old days at least has, according to the OT bible, been their own fault.
