Gaza Media Coverage: Snipers and Lies

On May 14, as United States officials ceremoniously relocated the American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, tens of thousands of Palestinians in Gaza — many of them members of Hamas and Iran-linked Islamic Jihad, along with other residents paid to participate — engaged in violent demonstrations along the Gaza-Israel border fence. Dubbed the “Great March of Return,” these protests were launched on March 30 and timed to crescendo six weeks later, on the day of the U.S. Embassy move, which coincided with the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the state of Israel.

For weeks, rioters stormed the border, firing weapons and hurling Molotov cocktails and rocks at the Israeli soldiers who guard the area to prevent terrorist incursions into southern Israel.

Palestinians: No Place for Gays

There is something seriously wrong with the Anti-Zionist left.

On June 8, an estimated 250,000 people attended the Gay Pride Parade in Tel Aviv. Tourists from all around the world came to Israel to watch and participate in the event. The theme of this year’s event is “The Community Makes History” — a reference to the LGBT community in Israel.

Meanwhile, as the Israelis were celebrating tolerance on the streets of Tel Aviv, their Palestinian neighbors were busy doing precisely the opposite: they were demanding that people should be fired for producing a television comedy about gay people in the Gaza Strip.

The controversial program, called “Out of Focus,” has drawn strong condemnations from Palestinians, who are now calling for punishing those responsible for “insulting Arab and Islamic values.”

Disturbing footage has emerged of children at nursery school in Gaza dressing up as jihadis and storming an Israeli building.

The children, who are no older than five-years-old, are seen carrying fake rifles, handguns and gas masks.

The young children then take a child dressed in Orthodox Jewish clothing hostage, before pretending to kill an Israeli soldier during the performance at the Al-Hoda nursery.

Their end-of-term production also includes smoke going off in a cardboard building as the young boys children carry out an invasion, placing a sign down which read ‘Israel has fallen’ in Hebrew and Arabic on the back of a soldier.

The soldier is then ‘shot’ as they leave the stage with the ‘hostage’ over the shoulder of the children – all while proud parents film the event on their phones.

Hundreds of ‘Incendiary Kites’ Have Assaulted Israel from Above Since Mid-April

Here’s the real story on the Palestinian ‘protest’

Israel has the right to defend itself.

It has every right to protect its people and defend its borders against attacking mobs and armed terrorists trying to target and murder Jewish citizens.

But judging from the media coverage of the clashes along Israel’s border – the border that separates Israel from the terrorist-run Gaza Strip – there seems to be an expectation that Israeli forces simply give up and cede ground to the terrorist organizations seeking to destroy them.

Hamas Admits Most Killed at Gaza Border Were Terrorists @JustinTrudeau

A Hamas official admitted in an interview with Arab media this week that the vast majority of those killed during mass riots at the Gaza borders were members of the terror group.

According to Hamas official Salah Bardawil, 50 of the 62 claimed fatalities were Hamas terrorists.

In other words, the international community is bellyaching and demanding committees of inquiry because Israel put down 50 terrorists. Does this make any sense?

Trudeau calling for independent probe of reported use of ‘excessive force’ in Gaza shootings

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s statement goes a step further — in both tone and content — than past comments

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is calling for an independent investigation into what he calls the excessive use of force by the Israel Defence Forces against protesters along the Gaza border on Monday.

Two days after a violent encounter with Israeli soldiers that killed more than 50 Palestinians and wounded hundreds more, Trudeau issued a statement to the parliamentary press gallery Wednesday demanding Israel’s leaders explain how a Canadian doctor tending to injured protesters was caught in the crossfire.

“Canada deplores and is gravely concerned by the violence in the Gaza Strip that has led to a tragic loss of life and injured countless people. We are appalled that Dr. Tarek Loubani, a Canadian citizen, is among the wounded — along with so many unarmed people, including civilians, members of the media, first responders, and children,” he said.

DEPRAVED: Chelsea Handler Compares Netanyahu To Hitler And Gaza to Auschwitz

If it wasn’t clear how much Chelsea Handler hates Israel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from her attack on Nikki Haley on Tuesday, two tweets she sent fifteen minutes later made it abundantly clear, as she likened Netanyahu to Adolf Hitler and the Palestinians in Gaza who are bent on Israel’s destruction to the millions of Jews slaughtered in the Holocaust.
