Let the blood libels begin ....


How long before the antisemitic left begins retailing the Israelis are murdering innocent children war frenzy slurs?

Complete with staged photos fresh from the Hamas propaganda hate mills?.

I nominate New Matilda in Australia. It has this crap up on the front page within hours of the IDF taking out the main murder gang boss in Gaza in such truly excellent style once again proving that the IDF is the most moral military in the world.

Al Shifa hospital was in total chaos with so many injured coming in. When I arrived in the ward where they treated burn victims, I saw women collapsing in grief. They had just found out that Omar Jihad Masharawi, a one-year-old baby, had died of his wounds. One of the women was his mother.
I went up with other photographers. I cannot describe what I saw with words, and neither can I post the grim pictures of a burned baby. This is just horrific.
Later the father cried as he carried Omar to the morgue. I went home. I feel nervous, with the news coming about more attacks, more injured. There is nowhere to escape in Gaza.
Israel is attacking a civilian population that has committed no crime other than being Palestinian.
I cant sleep and can’t take the image of Omar out of my head. Why did Omar have to die? 

And a dead baby picture.

How on earth did a baby get burnt to death in an Israeli aerial attack and is still in one piece?  And neither of her parents are in the slightest injured?  Where was the child? In the boot of Ahmed al-Jabari's car?

The mother was there to weep in her hands for one photo and the father to carry the baby to the morgue for another. Like I said they might be short on gurneys and medicos in Gaza (it must be the blockade) but they sure have their fill of cameras and photographers,
And now for a sick kid photo:

That kid doesn't look too sick to me.  Obviously not in the same room as the baby. Another miracle child perhaps just like Muhammed al-Durrah  of  Netzarim Junction blood libel fame. The one who got shot to death with automatic gunfire without bleeding.
Still this child should be thankful for small mercies given the horror of a life he has to look forward to under the genocide preaching life hating vile and murderous illegal regime of Hamas.
At least his ambulance has a gurney.


  1. Geoffff,

    I had never even heard of New Matilda before.

    Their headline is this:

    Israel's Ferocious Attack On Gaza
    By Anne Paq

    This is remarkable.

    It's just unbelievable.

    Israel endured hundreds of rocket attacks without response, with amazing restraint, and when they do finally hit back in order to protect their own children they get hit with this mierda?

    I don't know much about the Australian press, but if New Matilda is any indication your left press looks even more hostile to Israel than is the American left press.

  2. There is also this, a picture from Syria passed of as from Gaza, pumped out for consumption by those who look for anything to blame Israel.

  3. Needless to say I commented on that thread,Mike.

    I picked out one line

    "Israel is attacking a civilian population that has committed no crime other than being Palestinian."

    And then said that the writer needs to get out of Gaza to see what is going on if she has any honest interest in the truth

    Awaiting "moderation" . Ahuh.

  4. "Exposed: Pallywood Returns to Gaza

    What happens when the cameras turn up at the scene of an airstrike in Gaza and there simply aren’t enough Palestinian dead and injured to produce dramatic footage that can be used against Israel in the international media? We’ve seen it before. Palestinians who appear to be injured or even dead for the benefit of the TV cameras turn out to be nothing of the sort once they are no longer the focus.

    This is all the more so in Gaza, where Palestinian stringers are often filming in the absence of international news crews.

    The example below is taken from a BBC interview on the targeted killing of Hamas military commander Ahmed Jabari. During the interview (full version here), footage from Gaza is shown. At 2:11 mins in, a Palestinian in a beige jacket and black T-shirt, presumably injured in the aftermath of an Israeli airstrike, is picked up and taken away. Yet at 2:44 mins, the same Palestinian has staged a remarkable recovery.

    We’ve taken the relevant footage so that you can see for yourself."
