Cold Blooded Killers and their Cheerleaders 385

The Guardian’s main headline today is the Israeli propaganda framing of last night’s huge massacre.

The Zionist grip on the political and media class is stark. Ordinary citizens are left with feelings ranging from rage to deep sorrow, but with a feeling of helplessness at having no power and no genuine voice in the country where they live. The bought-and-paid-for politicians intone “Israel’s right to self-defence” as justifying the slaughter of any number of Palestinian children.

They pretend they do not see the obvious genocide which is happening before their eyes. The Guardian’s framing of the death of hundreds, probably thousands, of young children last night, as destruction of Hamas tunnels, ought to be astonishing. Sadly it is entirely unsurprising.

Here is a reminder of how it works. Joan Ryan MP secretly filmed talking to Shai Masot of the Israeli Embassy in London.

Last night, well after the latest extreme massacre phase had started, the BBC 10 o’clock evening news presented a single volley of Hamas no-warhead popgun missiles – which as usual killed nobody – as equivalent to the massive Israeli high explosive bombardment. They then featured a lengthy interview with a “heroic” clean-cut Israeli soldier who fought a Hamas attack on a military base on 7 October despite being wounded, and who explained that the attacks on Gaza are justified as they will free Israel from terrorism.

All this while the massive massacre was in progress in Gaza. The strange thing is, the BBC and the Guardian, and nearly the entire rest of the MSM, pump out their propaganda as though we have no other access to information or understanding of what is happening.

More than that, there seems to be a presumption that the general population harbour the same Zionist assumptions which the journalists are paid to promote. Well, we don’t. It feels like something has snapped, not only in Palestine but in the UK and much of Europe, where the process of alienation between the governed and the ruling classes has been accelerated.

Democracy has been failing in the West for a while – to take the UK as an example, the idea that a “choice” between Sunak and Starmer offers any kind of democratic alternative is risible. There are key moments in societal breakdown, and this is one.

    I live on Britain’s west coast. For the past several weeks, many military flights have been passing over me, mainly at night. The engines can be heard by the sleep shy, sometimes all night long. In the past five days or so, I now hear these engines in the day as well. They must fly high because I don’t see them but I hear them roar.

    If I am not mad, I infer The Empire is at battle stations and our lives hang in the balance

    Has anyone else experienced this phenomena?

      I dont think we are more at peril than for the last 2 years, but there were times during the summer NATO Air Force exercise when I was listening to every sound coming from the sky (I live near an airport).

      Unfortunately at that very time I had read Moscow journalist John Helmer who suggested that NATO could use the excercise for a sneak attack on Russia using F-16 and missiles fired under the cover of said exercise. (But with zero evidence from his side.)

      If there is a real danger it´s a misunderstanding which sets off that chain of command that´s difficult to stop.

      It’s a NATO “joint exercise” in military willy-waving, happens every couple of years (check out George Gunn’s excellent, heart-rending piece in today’s Bella.)

    Starmer’s speech.

    Pathetic!!! Example. After going on with the usual “Israel has right to…. etc. and everything has to be done under law” was asked if transfer of population to south legal? After umming and aahring says “obviously we need guarantees people can come back home”. Is the guy totally stupid? What the hell are they going to go back to??????????

    This post’s title is an equally good description of Hamas being cheered on by many BTL here. Not to mention all Muslims roaming the streets full of emotions only. Their religion grew mostly by this kind of Medieval violence as it sanctioned it in the past and still does 1400 years later. That old Qur’an is still considered the end of All discussion, good trick to scuttle any form of modern education by Shaitan.
