Western reporters’ shameful cover-up of Israel’s hospital massacre: A postscriptOct 20, 2023
As a postscript to Caitlin Johnstone’s piece in yesterday’s P&I, I wish to comment further on who is responsible for the attack on al-Ahli Arab Hospital on the 17th October.
It seems odd to me that Israel, which is admittedly bombing Gaza relentlessly, would claim that Palestinians did it by allowing a rocket to malfunction, particularly after it had apparently warned that the hospital should be evacuated because of aggressions it was planning to inflict. It would be a remarkable co-incidence that the malfunction just happened to occur over the hospital in those circumstances.
I rather think that a more likely scenario is that a government which believes that it is entitled to steal another people’s land because that land was given to the Jewish people by God, might also be persuaded that God also authorised the occasional white lie if same would assist in the recovery of the land that God had earlier given.
A Chosen People
“When the Lord your God brings you into the land that you are entering to take possession of it, and clears away many nations before you, the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations more numerous and mightier than you, hand when the Lord your God gives them over to you, and you defeat them, then you must I devote them to complete destruction. You shall make no covenant with them and show no mercy to them.
