That's not what he was saying. What a ridiculous reply. 

 

"Oh you don't think it'll snow on Christmas Day? Well I bet you think 9/11 was a hoax!!!!!" 

 

Its really not. You can't equate the mixing up of an Irish politican because of a genuine mistake (if the Lowkey link is what you're referring to though I'm not sure) with the fake news story blasted out by the Jerusalem Post which has been picked up by every fucking zionist fruitcake across the world. 

 

Once again  

 

 

 

He's right. It spawned despicable lies such as below. Although it was the internet that clarified the truth. Otherwise the journalists (she's British) may have stood.

 

 

 

 

Plus idiots such as this, and plenty of them. Tommy Robinson posted similar.

The reason imo why the whole of the Israeli machine went into overdrive to rubbish the validity of the dead baby photo is these images resonate. They hit hard  They're worth more than politicans words and become a lasting symbol of that war or conflict. Who can forget the naked little girl in Vietnam?  Tank man in China? The person with his brains blown out in Cambodia? The female American soldier with a hood over a man's head in Iraq?

 

These images stay with us. The image (its below) with the father with a tear rolling down his cheek as his child enters a state of rigor mortis (some call it heaven) is powerful,  shocking and upsetting. It'll probably be the stand out image of this war. Its why (imo) certain factions wanted to cast doubt on it. 

 

This girl (Fariha) sums it up nicely here. She's replying to the American rap singer who along with Dua Lipa and Bella Hadid is in an Israeli drill song that asks for a sword to be taken to their throats. Although they have a strange slang way of talking they're 100% right about the meaning of this picture.

The Israelis have pretty much done what the Russians did. Wade in doing a hulk smash with no clear strategy and wiped out all their credibility in one fell swoop.

 

Russia's currency had been fear of its big bad military, which has proven to be a joke.

 

Israel's currency was sympathy, which has rapidly dried up all over the world save for a few die hard supporters. 

 

In the social media age, marketing and PR is as important as bombs and bullets.

I always get emails from Quora I don't even know why its usually showing me questions about star wars, lotr, and comic books again I've no idea why as far as I know I've never signed up and none of those things are something I search for. Nearly all the emails now are full of Questions supporting Isreal, claiming Palestinian lies and the power of their PR. Its quite the push.

I can’t believe Israel hasn’t used U.S. aid/funding to build up its arms independence over the years, but he would know, I guess.

General Yitzhak Brick needs to lead more constructive debates.

Israel is investigating claims that investors may have known in advance that Hamas was planning to attack southern Israel on Oct. 7th.

Research by law professors Robert Jackson Jr. from New York University and Joshua Mitts of Columbia University found significant short-selling of shares leading up to the attacks.

"Days before the attack, traders appeared to anticipate the events to come," the researchers wrote, citing short interest in the MSCI Israel Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) that "suddenly, and significantly, spiked" on 2 October based on data from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

"And just before the attack, short selling of Israeli securities on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) increased dramatically," they added in a 66-page report, as reported by Reuters.

British MP Jeremy Corbyn addressed the foreign secretary on Tuesday demanding “urgent clarification” on if British soldiers were being deployed on the ground in Gaza. 

“I asked the [foreign office] minister if he could assure the House that there are no British soldiers on the ground in Gaza. The minister refused to answer,” he wrote in the letter. 

 

“The UK government already provides ample political support to an Israeli army that is committing war crimes in front of our eyes. Could you confirm whether the UK government is providing military personnel too?” he adds.
