Israeli army can’t confirm that Hamas beheaded babies. IT DIDN’T HAPPEN

Last Updated: October 11, 2023By Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Palestine and Israel: I did look for a different image this time – but decided to stay with one that is relatively neutral and non-triggering.

Another propaganda piece bites the dust – and a particularly nasty one, at that.

After all the hysteria about Hamas “beheading babies” in the Israeli Kfar Aza kibbutz – including a wave of front-page news stories in UK newspapers, it seems only one news organisation has actually sought corroboration of the claim – and found that it cannot be proved.

That organisation was Turkish news agency Anadolu, which posted the following on X:

A report on the news agency’s website states:

The Israeli army has no information confirming allegations that “Hamas beheaded babies,” Israeli army spokesperson unit told Anadolu on Tuesday.

It was alleged that Hamas’s armed wing, the Qassam Brigades, “beheaded many Israeli babies” on the Israeli side during the early Saturday morning attack launched from Gaza.

When Anadolu contacted the Israeli army spokesperson unit over the phone and asked about the allegations, she said “We have seen the news, but we do not have any details or confirmation about that.”

If it had really happened, you can be damn sure the Israeli Army would have had all the details, with eyewitnesses ready to give their accounts and even – if anybody had the stomach for it – photographic evidence.

None of that is available. There is no evidence of it.

As far as the Israeli Army is concerned, it didn’t happen – and that means it didn’t happen as far as we are concerned either.

The story we are left with is that Hamas has killed babies and children. That might be shocking enough – if only the Israeli military had not killed babies and children in its blanket bombing of Gaza.

You see, the aim of the story was for Israel to claim the moral high ground, and now it can’t. To quote the late, great Paul Newman, “There are only murderers in this room.”

This Site stands vindicated (yet again) as one of the few that stood up for factual accuracy.

But don’t feel bad if you were fooled by the mainstream hysteria. Here in the UK we have been trained to believe that our news providers have the highest standards – and they should; I was trained in exactly the same way as most of the “journalists” who fed you this lie. It’s just that I followed my training and they didn’t.

Just to show you how twisted the news situation in the UK really is, it seems there’s a concerted campaign to run Vox Political and sites like it out of business. If you want to show your appreciation for what I do here, you could start by buying my new book.

On the subject of sites like this one, Tim Fenton at Zelo Street has pointed out that the “fake claims of unspeakable harm being meted out to babies go right back to the Great War. More recently, the régime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq was accused of baby killing during its occupation of Kuwait. That wasn’t true either.”

I’m looking forward to a welter of shame-faced retractions from UK politicians and media types. But I’m not holding my breath waiting.

    I want to be fair to the BBC on this. They reported that it had been said but they said that they were unable to confirm this. They had seen bodies but said they were burned and that it would be impossible to tell if it were true or not.

    Is this the correct way to report news? I honestly don’t know. But if you report something unconfirmed then you have to go back to it to either confirm you have verified it or confirm that it is false. It seems, from the fact that the IDF knows nothing about it apart from news reports, that this was untrue and that the announcement by (sorry I can’t remember, was it Gallant?) that this happened and that he had pictures which he could not show is actually a flat out lie..

      Yes, if you’ve reported an allegation and it later proves false, there is an implied duty to ensure that the record is correct.

    Does Hamas have any history of raping women and beheading babies or anyone else? And pets! Not heard of it myself, and I think I would have done if that were the case (and surely it would have been mentioned in the MSM currently if they had done such things in the past).

    And it seems highly unlikely that they would do such things and, by doing so, alienate a lot of people who support the Palestinian cause. But, if you wanted to demonise them and paint them as evil so as to draw much of that support away and create hostility towards those that still do (which is mainly on the left) then…….
