Israel lies exposed amidst shifting global tide for Palestine
By Joachim Hagopian, Global Research, 29 November 2023
In less than two months, the soaring death rate in Gaza has now surpassed 15,000. The slaughter of Palestinians is recognized by UN experts as “genocidal incitement.” Israel nor the US never anticipated the global pushback against the Israeli carnage in Gaza. As of late, even the Mockingbird Mainstream Media outlets are turning against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s regime in its brutal assault on the Palestinian civilian population living in Gaza. With virtually the whole world watching via social media, the New York Times reported on November 25th that Israel’s bloodbath is killing innocent civilians at an unprecedented “historic pace” with over 10,000 women and children slaughtered so far.
The Jewish State’s appalling record violence is turning into a PR disaster for Netanyahu. A fast growing number of Israeli leaders, including ex-security chiefs, current opposition leader Yair Lapid and now two former prime ministers Ehud Olmert and Ehud Barak are all calling for Bibi’s removal and formation of a new government to end this no-win war.
On Sunday November 26th, the Washington Post exposed Benjamin Netanyahu’s symbiotic relationship with Hamas. On the one hand, he’s often claimed to want to destroy the “terrorist” group Hamas over many years, yet has helped finance Hamas and used this Palestinian militant faction to divide and rule Palestinians as a politically disunited people. By breaking up Palestine and its token Palestinian authorities in the West Bank separate from East Jerusalem and the Hamas stronghold in Gaza, it ensures Israeli apartheid subjugation and control continues, all the while denying them their own sovereign nation-state. The WaPo exposé includes drawing on Israeli insiders. Dahlia Scheindlin, an Israeli pollster and political analyst, stated:
With no unified [Palestinian] leadership, [Netanyahu] was able to say he couldn’t move forward with peace negotiations. It allowed him to say, ‘There is no one to talk to.’
Netanyahu biographer Anshel Pfeffer maintains:
Netanyahu always felt that the Palestinian conflict was a distraction being used as a wedge issue in Israel.
This really is all you need to know to understand why the leader about to be removed from power and in such deep disfavor with his own people, facing corruption charges while at war with Israel’s Supreme Court, offers the motivation and means necessary that allows Israel’s “invasion” by Hamas to unfold unimpeded for a full 7-hours before unleashing his Israeli Defense Forces on the scene to murder up to hundreds of their own fellow Israeli citizens, further driving up the death count to 1,200 on October 7th.
According to a Monday November 27th Grayzone article, more hard evidence reveals a female Israeli tank crew was ordered to indiscriminately fire at Israeli civilians at a kibbutz:
New disclosures add to the growing body of evidence indicating many Israelis who died on October 7 were killed by the Israeli military. Firsthand testimony by admittedly inexperienced Israeli tank operators reveals orders to open fire upon Israeli communities when Palestinian militants breached the fences encircling Gaza on October 7… Meanwhile, the Israeli government has muzzled captives freed from Gaza to prevent further damage to the official narrative.
Writing on X on November 14th, former Israel Prime Minister Naftali Bennett opportunistically uses victims killed by his own Israeli soldiers for false propaganda purposes justifying his nation’s genocide:
12 year old Liel Hetzroni of Kibbutz Beeri was murdered in her home by Hamas monsters on Oct 7th. Her body has now been identified. Look at her sweet smile. Liel harmed nobody. She was murdered just because she’s Jewish. We’re fighting the most just war: to ensure this can never happen again. Nobody should ask us to stop, nor will we, before we achieve that goal.
Then eleven days later on Saturday November 25th, another Grayzone article sets the record straight:
Eyewitnesses to the October 7 hostage standoff in Kibbutz Be’eri have exposed Israel for misleading the world about the killings of 12-year-old Liel Hetzroni, her family and her neighbors.
In the face of numerous falsely reported, now debunked incidents of Hamas “cutting heads off babies” and raping Israeli women still unsubstantiated, increasing evidence continues emerging daily that clearly proves that on the day of the so-called invasion, Israelis killed many fellow Israelis. It turns out Western MSM press’ jingoistic reporting of the Hamas “savage invasion” in southern Israel is pure propagandized fiction. Instantly, it gifted Bibi loads of sympathy and support from around the world, bought him more time in power as a wartime leader and granted him full license to exact genocidal revenge, ethnically purging Palestinians off the Gaza map through brutal war crime atrocities with the aim of forced evacuation migration of Palestinians into Egypt’s Sinai Desert.
Then, with Gaza’s stolen land cleared of all Palestinians, Israel has been caught with a plan to take full advantage of two financial incentives for its genocide – building a hugely profitable canal across Gaza to surpass and replace Egypt’s Suez Canal as an international trade route shortcut while exploiting Gaza’s vast oil and gas reserves stealing not only Palestinians’ ancient homeland but their future source of wealth as well. As a Khazarian mafia chieftain, Zionist Netanyahu fits the profile archetype of the Luciferian mass murderer.
Per notable geopolitical analyst Scott Ritter in a Sputnik article on November 23rd, this week’s extended ceasefire in a number of ways is a win-win for both the people of Israel and Palestine, especially for their freed captives, along with humanitarian relief finally reaching the Palestinians in Gaza. But the broader picture also shows a breakthrough victory for the Palestinian cause and a big loss for Israel’s rightwing extremist government and its tyrant Bibi and its primary backer the Biden regime. After all, for the longest time Israel mimicked by US have steadfastly refused to a ceasefire under any conditions. This momentum shift will only place increasing pressure on the Netanyahu regime and accomplice to stop their genocide. Both Israel and the US have backed themselves up into a corner with another intractable loss, not unlike the Ukraine debacle. The world is recognizing both as neocolonialist rogue states 180 degrees out of step with today’s multipolar world.
Clearly the global tide of public opinion on the Israel-Gaza conflict has clearly shifted in Palestinians’ favor, despite the Hamas October 7th incursion in Israel. 46 years ago, the UN General Assembly called for the annual observance of an International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People on November 29th. This year it takes on far more significance than ever before. The United Nations headquarters in New York is opening an exhibit called “Palestine – a Land with a People.” The world is now learning that as the longest Israeli leader in its 75-year history, war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu’s actions toward the people of Palestine proves him an enemy of the state opposing a free Palestine as a sovereign nation.
But now momentum toward justice can no longer be denied by continued lies and brutal oppression. The UN and even Western nations are increasingly demanding the two-state solution, never again placing it on the Israel apartheid backburner. The UN Resolution 242 in compliance with international law has called for a sovereign State of Palestine border to be returned to its 1967 pre-7-Day War status. The world of nations wants Israel and the US to finally begin complying with international law, and the people of Israel, Palestine, the US and entire world will be far better for it.
