1] - the “crowded market massacre”
What happened: IDF struck a warehouse containing rockets, as proven by numerous secondary explosions. Palestinians rushed to the scene but were then killed/injured by the fallout from the burning warehouse. Objects, most likely fuel tanks etc exploded, flew out on to the street and killed/maimed several people - everybody was injured on their feet, shins and legs, all lower body injuries (many had their legs broken) - this does not happen with an air strike. Ambulance sustained damage at the front whilst a puff of smoke is seen behind with no damage to ambulance. The ceasefire did not include Shijaiyah because Hamas was still launching rockets from there. The media reported that the market was closed but then tried to scrub this, thankfully, somebody saved it. The numbers of 160 wounded were a complete fabrication.
How it was reported: IDF said there was a humanitarian ceasefire so people flocked to the busy market which was then hit by numerous Israeli airstrikes, directly hitting the market then there was a follow up strike on the ambulance that arrived.
2] the “UN boys school bombing in Rafah”
What happened: IDF struck 2 men on the street outside of the school with an extremelt accurate, guided missile, one small enough to produce a tiny 8” crater. The bodies of the men were then dragged in to the UN compound, several actors played dead near them, little girl is constantly picked up and positioned for photo opportunity and then picked up by a man who sprints back outside of the school but stops after a few yards and gazes aimlessly in to the distance, men carrying little boys with zero injuries, dead people eventually getting to their knees, they PURPOSELY move a large piece of scaffolding which was covering a sign saying “UNRWA boys school”.
How it was reported: Israeli airstrike hits yet another UN school, killing several people, Ban Ki Moon calls it a disgrace etc
3] the “Jabalia school shelling” (this one is still sketchy and enters the realms of conspiracy a little when determining the cause of the damage, it does however largely rule out Israeli tank shelling)
What happened: IDF came under heavy mortar fire from the area and responded in that general direction with 1-3 tank shells. Only one of the pictured sites looks close to showing damage consistent with an Israeli tank shell but even then, upwards bent corrugated roofing indicates something else exploded just beside the building. The damage depicted all has strange trajectories and most of the walls are riddled with heavy calibre machine gun fire, damage inside the buildings is purposely made worse for the pictures. It appears that Hamas fired from around the school and after they received an Israeli response, they peppered the school with heavy machine gun fire and hit it with what seems to be mortars & RPG fire in order to make it look like Israel shelled the school
How it was reported: Israeli shells hit UN school, killing 19~ people despite Israel knowing full well where the school was
4] the “unexploded Israeli bombs”
What happened: Large unexploded bombs were placed around for photo opportunities, for numerous reasons explained within the post, they do not belong to Israel.
5] the “shot and killed by Israeli sniper video”
Part 1 Part 2 Part 3
What happened: ISM activists clearly stage the shooting of a guy apparently searching for his family in some rubble. You have to read this one for yourself but the most telling points are that he’s not in line of sight of the alley way they claim the sniper shot, several parts of the video were taken at different times of the day due to the shadows, the man appears to squirt fake blood on himself and has absolutely no wounds consistent with what would be present with the Israeli sniper system - there’s lots more damning evidence.
How it was reported: Poor Palestinian is mercilessly gunned down by Israeli sniper whilst desperately searching for his family amongst rubble.
7] How the media is reporting death toll numbers from Hamas/sympathetic sources uncritically and is being threatened
In this post , I explained how the source of the “UN says 80%” line is a UN report which cities the Health Ministry (Gaza), the PCHR which lied about hundreds of civilians in Cast Lead and is still lying and BTselem who simply takes the word of their family as fact despite Hamas instructing everybody to refer to all deaths as “innocent civilians”. I also highlight several examples of journalists knowingly/unwittingly exposing Hamas but retracting their stories soon after.
We KNOW Hamas is waging a media war, the Palestinians are even bragging about winning it . All explosions are reported as Israeli air strikes/shellings, all dead are reported as “innocent civilians” killed by Israel, we see absolutely no photos or videos of Palestinian militants militants or the firing of rockets, indeed the news on the TV and in print newspapers is entirely of dead/injured Palestinians and damaged buildings - that is 95% of what the media is showing people. The media is uncritically reporting Palestinian tales and claims whilst refusing to engage in even a semblance of even handed journalism & basic fact checking - the former is perhaps because we know they risk their lives for pointing their cameras at Hamas gun men.
