The fraudian does it's best to help
Posted by Raskolnikov on April 24, 2021, 12:13 pm, in reply to "Israel lobby’s “Death to the Arabs” damage control"
with this disgraceful framing in the headline: |
Gaza militants fire rockets after clashes flare in Jerusalem
Rockets seen as response to unrest in mostly Palestinian east Jerusalem, including far-right Jewish groups chanting ‘death to Arabs’
Right at the very end they mention "chanting" by Jews after framing the entire thing as "Gaza militants" making the first move after "clashes flare" in Jerusalem. It's as close to lying as you can get without completely making things up. Disgusting.
It doesn't get any better in the article:
Militants in Gaza have fired at least 35 rockets into Israel in one of the most intense flare-ups in months, seemingly triggered by days of tensions in Jerusalem in which far-right Jewish groups and the Israeli police have clashed with Palestinians.
"Seemingly", "days of tension"; no, days of racist attacks.
Hours of sustained rocket launches early on Saturday – and Israel’s retaliatory strikes on the strip using fighter jets and attack helicopters – broke a months-long lull along the frontier with the coastal enclave.
Kept that bit hidden in the headline, eh?
The rockets, some of which were claimed by a small military group affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, caused no injuries. They appeared to be a response to several nights of unrest in mostly Palestinian east Jerusalem as well as protest across towns in the occupied West Bank.
Again, "appeared", "unrest". Desperately trying to dampen down the cause and effect and the nature of the violence.
Violence in Jerusalem spiked on Thursday night as hundreds of far-right Jewish Israelis marched down city streets chanting “death to Arabs” and confronted Palestinians. Mounted police in riot gear attempted to keep the two sides apart but Palestinian medics said that by the end of the night 100 people had been injured, with 21 taken to hospital. Israeli police said they had made 50 arrests without specifying if they were Israelis or Palestinians.
"Confronted" as if the Palestinians were already there waiting for trouble. Not "Settlers marched into Palestinian areas and started causing trouble".
Anyone want to have some money on the actual arrest and injury figures? I'll go less than 5% of the 100 injuries and 50 arrests being Jewish.
Utterly disgraceful twisting of the truth by this rag.
