They cannot win the propaganda war now, because it is clear that the Palestinians are there, and still attacking us with rockets every day, and we are here. This is a point that needs to be emphasized at the same level than the truth that the IDF didn't caused the explosion.

Gaza is not fighting any liberation war. It is fighting a war against normality and peace.

Juan Golblado

More needs to be made of this.

I remember during the first days of the war to overthrow Saddam the BBC was forever reporting Iraqi civilians being hit by coalition shells, and I couldn't help but wonder if maybe at least some of those people killed were not being killed by Saddamists.

When the coalition forces in Afghanistan and areas near the Iraqi-Syrian border have been accused of bombing wedding parties, I sometimes wonder if some fucking jihadist didn't 'sacrifice' the wedding party in order to give the coalition forces a bloody nose in the media.


Who can even imagine that the Palestinians could win the Propoganda war? It was only recently that certain right wing bloggers - step forward Andrew Sullivan - were insisting that the murder of a mere 50 odd people at Jenin wasn't a "massacre" in any numerical sense of the term. Imagine if 50 ex-New Republic editors or Arsenal supporting bloggers were murdered one evening; I think that would might be uncontroversially deemed a massacre on the Ten O'clock news. But those pesky Palestinians; they just don't seem somehow fully human, do they?
