The Qana strike..the making of a Hezbo-wood production
As I wrote yesterday, I'm more and more convinced that the death of civilians at Qana was a Hezbo-wood production.
We know that the Israelis attacked Qana because 150 rockets per day were being shot at Israel from Qana, and that the Israelis leafletted the town telling people to leave because a strike was imminent.
We also know that Hezbollah had deliberately set up missile launchers near civilian dwellings and that they deliberately prevented civilians from leaving, using them as human shields.
The building itself collapsed collapsed a full 8 hours after the Israeli airstrike, which occurred at 1AM on July 29th. What's more, the media was called at dawn before the building collapsed and there was no rescue attempt made until after the journalists got there.
We also know that the civilian dead were almost exclusively women and children, that no wounded were brought out and that no Hezbollah fighters or equipment were found...an unlikely occurance after an IDF airstrike on a major Hezbollah base.
Did Hezbollah remove its dead and wounded from the building and then deliberately detonate explosives to bring it down? Did they use the time gap to bring bodies from other locations who could be re-used as fresh `victims' for those cooperative photographers? Wouldn't the normal human response be to immediately flee a building that had suffered an attack of that kind...unless the civilians and particularly the children were prevented from leaving?
Smells like Hezbo-wood to me.
And it gets smellier.
EU Referendum has a superb story showing how two dead children were dragged from the rubble, their bodies deliberately covered with dust for maximum effect. And how, under the direction of a `rescue worker' who appears to be a Hezbollah fighter, they were photographed and put in different dramatic poses for hours, with the connivance of Arab journalists and photographers from AP and al-Reuters.
(Warning: these are graphic pictures of dead children being used like Hollywood prop dummies by Hezbollah and the Main Stream Media.)
Seeing these pictures, looking at the timeline provided by EU Referendum and the way the dramatic shots were set up and milked for maximum propaganda effect eliminates whatever doubt I had left that this was a deliberate propaganda ploy on Hezbollah's part. In any event, by deliberately placing their military in the midst of civilians, Hezbollah has incurred the responsibility for those deaths.
One would expect such tactics from Hezbollah.
But the Main Stream Media's willingness to unquestionably cooperate in disseminating Hezbollah propaganda, even to the extent of being a pawn in a ghoulish sham using the bodies of dead children is beyond despicable.
They appear to be perfectly ok with allowing people like Hezbollah and the Palestinians to use them as dupes..as long as they continue to receive `access'. We had the spectacle a few days ago of a well known CNN correspondant admitting that his entire broadcast was stage managed by Hezbollah. Eason Jordan at the same network resigned after admitting that CNN whitewashed Saddam Hussein's atrocities so they could keep `reporting the story.'
In the Palestinian Authority, no journalist is allowed any access unless he's approved by the regime - which in practice, means that the reporters and photographers the wire services use are usually Palestinians and subject to direct retaliation if they report `wrong'.
Hezbollah are people who, like the Palestinians, have proven themselves willing to murder their own children if it means scoring in the propaganda war against the hated Jews. Moreover, they make a point of brainwashing their children about the glories of martyrdom..especially if you can take some infidels with you.
The idea of a `ceasefire' with such people is ludicrous on the face of it.
