It gets worse: did Israel LIE about rescuing hostages to justify Rafah bloodbath?

This Site has no way of proving or disproving what follows.

I am merely showing you what’s being said. Hopefully more information will become available (although probably not via the BBC) and we’ll all be able to make up our own minds.

Here’s the issue:

Just when you think Israel could not descend any lower, this happens.

If Israel won’t release a Palestinian who could create lasting peace, doesn’t that make Israel the problem?

Terrorist or peacemaker: Marwan Barghouti could be the key to a new future for Israel and Palestine if both sides just have a little faith – or he could just renew the cycle of hate. Will the two sides be able to make a leap of faith?

It seems peace negotiations between Israel and Hamas have stalled – because Hamas wants Israel to release a political rival.

Marwan Barthouti is a leading member of Fatah, the political party that runs the Palestinian Authority (that rules parts of the West Bank) – and could be the leader who could negotiate a lasting peace and the creation of a Palestinian state.

The Israeli government does not want him to be released. So logically…

Doesn’t that mean Israel – or rather the Israeli government – doesn’t want peace but wants the violence and killing to continue?

Here‘s the Associated Press:

Marwan Barghouti’s freedom is at stake in cease-fire negotiations between Hamas and Israel. Hamas leaders demanded Friday that Israel release Barghouti, a leader of the militant group’s main political rival, as part of any deal to end the fighting in Gaza.

The demand brings new attention to Barghouti, who plays a central role in Palestinian politics even after spending more than two decades behind bars. His release could lay the groundwork for his eventual election to national office.

Hamas’ demand that Israel release Marwan Barghouti brings new attention to a man many Palestinians see as their Nelson Mandela.

Palestinians see the 64-year-old Barghouti, a member of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party, as a natural successor to the 88-year-old Abbas, who leads the internationally recognized Palestinian Authority, the self-ruled government that administers parts of the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

if Barghouti is released, he could become a consensus candidate in a round of new elections that Hamas, Fatah and other Palestinian factions could rally behind.

But the Israeli government considers Barghouti to be a terrorist – possibly with very good reason.

So there’s a moral question here: should Israel release a terrorist to secure the reciprocal release of the remaining 136 hostages taken by Hamas on October 7 last year?

And: is it possible that the terrorist has changed – enough to create a lasting peace, rather than war?

Releasing this man would be a huge gamble. But is it worthwhile?

Israeli troops kidnapped and tortured this Gazan civilian

It seems Israeli troops are now kidnapping Gazans from their homes, taking them to Israel and torturing them.

If this seems similar to the hostage-taking that Israel is asking us to condemn, that is because it is.

In fairness, Israel then returned the gentleman in the clip below – no doubt so he can face death from a missile or a tank shell, possibly fired by a bloodthirsty Israeli TV reporter or politician instead.

The kidnapping of civilians is a war crime, of course; it’s hostage-taking. Israel cannot claim any moral high ground while it is committing such offences.

Israel’s arch-liar is at it again

Eylon Levy: he’ll say whatever he thinks will get you to sympathise with his genocidal Israeli government and hate the almost defenceless Gazan people Israel is slaughtering.

Is he pathological? Is Eylon Levy unable to control his behaviour – stop himself from lying?

Of course, the answer is no. He’s perfectly capable of quoting genuine facts but his job is to mislead the rest of us. Or at least, it certainly seems that way.

Consider his latest wheeze: claiming that serving members of the Israeli armed forces who were taken prisoner on October 7 are helpless hostages of Hamas, in danger of rape or other sexual crimes likely to be perpetrated by their captors:

Billel Boudouma’s response is accurate; I checked it with the “Bing Copilot” on my web browser. Before anybody whines about it, it’s the best that Levy deserves.

Here’s the response:

Yes, the Israeli soldiers who were taken prisoner by Hamas on October 7, 2023, are considered prisoners of war 1The Third Geneva Convention defines a prisoner of war as “any person belonging to one of the following categories, who has fallen into the power of the enemy: Members of the armed forces of a Party to the conflict as well as members of militias or volunteer corps forming part of such armed forces” 1Since the Israeli soldiers were members of the Israeli Defense Forces, they fall under this definition and are therefore considered prisoners of war 1.

Feel free to check the sources yourself.

In the meantime, remember that Israeli spokespeople like Levy are habitual and constant liars – and, sadly, many of the UK’s mainstream media are colluding with them, whether consciously or not. Look at the report on the BBC’s recent behaviour.

As Palestinians are released from Israeli prisons, we’re finally hearing their stories

Israa Jaabis: her face was badly burnt when her car caught fire. Israel jailed her for attempting a car-bomb attack and refused to allow her to have reparatory surgery.

Remember those Israeli hostages who were released before the current Israel/Hamas ceasefire, and their stories of being well-treated by Hamas? Here’s the flipside.

It seems that of the 150 Palestinians we were told would be released during the truce, which ends tomorrow (November 27, 2023), 78 have so far been released – in exchange for 26 hostages who were taken from Israel on October 7.

But the numbers seem to vary, depending on who you ask.

The BBC has been publishing the stories of some of the freed Palestinians, but these seem to be in very short supply in comparison with those of the freed Israelis.

What we’re hearing stands in stark contrast to the claims of Israel’s apologists on the social media, who claimed they were all convicted hardened criminals and terrorists.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

Instead, the majority of those released so far had been held in administrative detention – some for many months. And those who have been convicted by Israeli courts seem to have been jailed for the most specious of reasons.

One such case is that of Israa Jaabis, imprisoned in Israel since 2015 because her car broke down.

Here‘s the BBC:

Her car broke down on a highway 1.5km (0.9 miles) from a checkpoint in the West Bank.

The reason for the breakdown is disputed. Israelis said back then it was an attempted car bombing but Arab media said the engine of her car failed causing a fire.

Jaabis sustained fire injuries in the accident and her face was badly burnt.

She was sentenced to 11 years in jail, of which she spent eight years before she was released.

Last year, Jaabis filed a request with the Israel Prisons Service for a nose job to repair the damage to her face, and was rejected.

Mohammad dar-Darwish, 17, was convicted by a military court of throwing Molotov cocktails at Israeli soldiers in April. He denies doing it. And how was he treated? Here‘s the BBC again:

After the 7 October attacks, Mohammad told me, guards took the blankets, cooking equipment, radios and televisions of Palestinian prisoners.

“They only gave us one portion of food between seven or eight people – we were always hungry. They couldn’t get to Gaza, so they punished us.”

Until his release, the only information about the war in Gaza came from new arrivals at the prison, he said.

He described people arriving in custody with fresh injuries: broken teeth, a badly bruised hand, and a large cut to the head that was left to heal untreated.

It’s a stark contrast to what we’ve been told by Israel’s spokespeople on the social media.

Ridiculous: media claim 3:1 hostage exchange ratio means Israel does not value Palestinian life

Yasmin Porat: she was an Israeli hostage who escaped Hamas, which is not the same as the current situation – but this is the only image of a former hostage that This Site has at the time of publication.

Dept. of Even-Handedness: after spending a huge amount of time defending Gaza and Palestinians from Israeli falsehoods and propaganda, it is only fair that this idiocy be identified as well.

It has been suggested by some media types that the fact that three Palestinians are being traded for every Israeli hostage means Israel thinks Palestinian lives are worth less than Israeli lives:

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

This has been seized by the usual propagandists:

But of course this time they have a point.

This Writer hasn’t thought for a moment that the numbers we’re seeing mean Israel doesn’t value Palestinian lives as highly as those of Israelis.

It seems far more likely to me that Hamas demanded three Palestinians for every Israeli and saw that wish granted.

The suggestion that the ceasefire was delayed because of further Hamas demands tends to support that thesis.

I hope none of you have been seduced by this particular form of twisted reasoning.

Israel continues to pound Gaza as ceasefire is delayed

Gaza bombarded: this shot was taken a while ago. Who knows how this skyline looks today?

A four-day ceasefire and exchange of hostages between Israel and Hamas in Gaza has been delayed by a day – possibly more – for reasons that are not entirely clear.

The temporary cessation of hostilities has been brokered by Qatar, and will include an exchange of 150 Palestinians who are currently held in Israeli prisons for 50 of the hostages Hamas took on October 7.

It is not clear why the delay is happening. It has been suggested that Hamas is having trouble gathering its 50 hostages together, but it has also been suggested – by an Israeli government source, according to the BBC – that Hamas has made extra demands to be added to the deal.

So Gaza continues to suffer while the diplomats argue.

Israel supporters attack hostage exchange plan for Gaza ceasefire

Social media demon: ‘X’ seems to be full of pro-Israel liars at the moment, filling up the platform with provable falsehoods. Block them.

Supporters of Israel are undermining a plan for a hostage exchange during a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas that was announced overnight (November 21-22) – and they all seem to be reading from the same script.

Odd, that.

It seems the deal to pause fighting will allow 50 hostages to be released from Gaza and 150 Palestinians to be released from Israeli prisons.

The ceasefire will begin at 10am on Thursday (November 23) and will last for four days.

A further number of hostages may be released – up to 150 Palestinians and 50 Gaza hostages – after the four-day pause.

This Writer will be very interested to know the condition in which the Israeli hostages arrive back in their own country. If they have been well-treated, what will this tell us about the words of people like Israeli government spokesman Eylon Levy, who was whipping up fear about Hamas “rapists” only days ago?

Meanwhile, the usual suspects have been trying to undermine the hostage exchange. Here’s what they’re saying:

It’s as though someone has told these people what to say, isn’t it?

Especially as it seems their claim about the Palestinians is not true:

Again, I would suggest that if you want your social media feeds to be free of fake news, lies and/or propaganda, you would be well-advised to block the accounts of those making the apparently-false claims above.

WAR CRIMES: Israel has been targeting Gaza refugee camps

Despair: A Gazan holds his head in his hands, sitting over the crater that an Israeli airstrike made of part of the Jabalya refugee camp. Can you see any evidence of an underground Hamas tunnel system?

An air attack on the Jabalya refugee camp in Gaza is just the latest in a series of Israeli raids on areas it has claimed not to be targeting, it seems.

According to the BBC,

A large explosion rocked the Jabalia camp yesterday afternoon. Pictures taken at the scene by news agencies in the immediate aftermath showed several large craters surrounded by destroyed buildings. Children could be seen among the dead and injured, as people searched through the rubble for survivors.

BBC Verify geolocated the blast site to an area located within the refugee camp, which is made up of many residential buildings and was home to 116,000 people before the war.

The Israel Defense Forces later confirmed a strike, saying it had killed a senior Hamas commander, Ibrahim Biari, and targeted “underground terror infrastructure” beneath buildings that collapsed.

It said a “large number of terrorists were killed” and accused Hamas of intentionally using civilians as human shields. Hamas denied any commander had been there.

AFP news agency said their footage from the scene showed at least 47 bodies pulled from the rubble. A senior doctor at the nearby Indonesian Hospital told the BBC it received 120 dead, the majority women and children.

The BBC can’t independently confirm casualty figures. The IDF said it was looking into “reports of collateral damage and non-combatant casualties”.

This is not the only refugee camp to be hit by Israel.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

Here‘s more from the BBC:

In central Gaza, there are four refugee camps. The BBC has verified strikes on two of them. Social media footage of the aftermath of a strike on al-Bureij camp on 17 October shows extensive rubble, flames, and bloodied bodies being carried out of the damage. We have verified the footage by matching up buildings in this footage with photos by news agencies of the aftermath. We also verified the footage location using a mosque that was visible.

Another camp nearby, al-Nuseirat, was struck the next day, on 18 October. We have verified social media footage of the aftermath, which shows ambulances, detritus, people trying to douse flames and a destroyed bakery. We located it by matching the shop names that can be seen in the video with those seen in photos published before the strike took place.

Despite the earlier 8 October warning instructing residents of the eastern and southern Maghazi area to go to camps in central Gaza, there do not appear to be any camps in the location specified on the tweet’s map.

We have however identified three camps nearby: al-Nuseirat and al-Bureij, hit by the strikes on the 17 and 18 October, and another camp called Deir al-Balah.

We cannot discount the possibility that there were then subsequent different instructions, but the BBC has not found any evidence of this.

There seems to be no evidence of a Hamas tunnel system beneath the Jabalya camp – or any of the others. If other information becomes available, This Site will update.

So Israel’s claim to be attacking Hamas seems specious. And the protestation that Hamas is using refugees and hostages as human shields seems to be nonsense.

What we see is Israel targeting refugees and hostages – innocent civilians – indiscriminately in yet another war crime to add to the list.

Israel has now killed at least 3,195 children in Gaza – and taken 1,200 hostages

Words should not be necessary: this image of a grieving Palestinian mother is not following the massacre of October 7 but used for illustrative purposes. Any images following the actual events are likely to be too disturbing for publication.

The figures come from Save the Children:

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

Here are the names of the murdered – yes, murdered – children, as gathered by a Jewish organisation. The list was of those known to have been killed by last Thursday (October 26). I await claims that the Gaza Ministry of Health is lying – probably from people who say every word that comes out of Tel Aviv is God’s truth:

Here’s a response to the deaths, by a doctor who was himself a child refugee:

And here’s the Israeli government line on murdering children:

Oh… and you know that line about Hamas taking more than 230 people hostage?

What about the 1,200 that Israel has taken from the West Bank since October 7?

More than 90 people have been killed, mostly in altercations with the IDF, and 1,200 Palestinians have been arrested by Israeli forces in the West Bank since the conflict broke out, according to Palestinian data.

In numbers alone, Israel has caused far more suffering to Palestine than the Palestinians have to Israel. When you hear the propaganda that is pushed on the mainstream media, just ask yourself: who are the victims here?
