Times ‘Israel/Hamas’ article is slammed for lack of evidence. Why was it published?

The first duty of any journalist – including newspaper reporters – is to the facts. This appears to have eluded staff at The Times (or was it The Sunday Times) with an article claiming that Hamas personnel were “on a mission” to rape Israelis on October 7,

It alleges that Hamas both raped and murdered.

But it seems just one element of the story was missing: evidence.

Some were quite happy to take the story at face value…

… which leads this professional journalist to question that fellow (former) newspaper editor’s credibility.

In contrast, there has been a deluge of disbelief. I’m putting this on the top because it provides access to information contradicting the Times claims. This Writer has a problem with the source material because it suggests that babies were killed and beheaded, and this contradicts what was previously known (Israeli figures have shown that no babies were among the dead, although the statistics are, of course, always subject to revision). But the fact that rape is not mentioned in a report that makes so many other claims is strong evidence against the Times story:

Here’s the deluge:

It is accurate to say that Israel and its representatives have lied repeatedly.

And without evidence, the Times story is just another fairy tale.

I wonder if any will suddenly be magicked up, now we’ve demanded it?

    Like the fable, “Little Boy Who Cried Wolf” the first lying accusers have ruined any chance of any truth being believed.

    Right-Wing Extremists are unimaginative and just Plain Dumb
