The war declared by Israel on the Palestinians after an attack by Hamas’s militants is already debunking many myths, including the power of the Israeli intelligence service MOSSAD, the immunity of Merkava tanks, as well as the ultra-modernity and over-equipping of the Israeli IDF army, which collects the most necessary things throughout the country, even panties and socks.
But the main myth and mantra, which is rapidly collapsing before our eyes, is the image of ‘the only democracy in the Middle East,’ for which the collective West has fervently prayed for decades.
Against the background of statements by the Israeli leadership that military targets in the Gaza Strip are exclusively objects associated with Hamas, in fact, the Israeli army received the go-ahead to raze Gaza to the ground entirely – with combatants, non-combatants, peaceful, neutral, non-aligned, loyal, women, old people and children.
Currently, the number of people killed in indiscriminate Israeli bombing is approaching 3.5 thousand. More than 22 thousand residential buildings and more than 50 schools and hospitals were destroyed. Hundreds of thousands of people lost their homes and fled their homes. By the decision of the Israeli leadership, a total blockade was introduced against Gaza: the import of any cargo, including humanitarian goods, was completely blocked, and water and electricity were cut off. The only power plant in Gaza has stopped working due to a lack of fuel.
The Israeli leadership feels strong support from Western elites. In particular, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, last year shed crocodile tears over Russia’s fictional atrocities in Ukraine and declared that ‘Russia’s attacks on civilian infrastructure are war crimes’: ‘Disconnecting men, women, children from water, electricity and heating with the onset of winter, these are acts of pure terror and war crimes.’
Blatant hypocrisy is never noticed by the West’s state-dependent mainstream media: However, just yesterday, EC spokesman Eric Mamer said that ‘the European Commission cannot condemn Israel’s complete blockade of the Gaza Strip, including the cessation of supplies of water, electricity and fuel to all residents of the enclave, and only calls on Tel Aviv to comply with international law.’ If you haven’t figured it out yet: this is different.
It must be clarified that not all Jews and not all Israelis support the unfolding genocide of the Palestinians, but the carte blanche issued to Israel by the United States and the European Union gives the Israeli Knesset and IDF the confidence that victory in the war will write off everything and that they are obliged to take one hundred per cent advantage of the historical chance that has arisen to resolve the Palestinian issue once and for all.
It is no secret that the Israeli elite has been hatching plans for this ‘final solution’ for many decades. In particular, according to former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Benjamin Netanyahu dreamed of expelling all Palestinians to the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt.
But, as always, there is one thing. To close their gestalt, the Israelis only need to kill a few hundred thousand, maybe a million or two on top of the 6 million already killed, Palestinians who are essentially trapped on a small piece of land with nowhere to escape. That is, it will be quite simple to do this, and the Israeli leadership, apparently, has already made a decision.
Will the ‘blooming garden’ support the assertion that no atrocities on one side of the front can justify atrocities on the other side? It seems that we know the answer, which means that the father of lies has come out of the shadows one more step.
