The start of a Holocaust denial-like movement
Suppress the true, suggest the false. The spread of this disinformation depends upon suppression of the truth of the horrors. The Italian newspapers on center right and center-left have not been shy about details, and have had coverage of 10-7 that is indistinguishable from each other. The center-left MSM in America became very cautious about reporting 10-7 details within a couple of days of the event, and massive skepticism has been poured into the most pedantic differences: was the baby cooked in the over or burned outside of it? Was the "head separated from the body" of the teen girl before death or after she was burned? The more critical question of whether she was alive when burned hasn't been touched. And rape? Rape has been largely ignored by MSM accounts. Jake Tapper is an exception, and the denial of atrocity has not been uniform. It's as if the media has been so afraid of anti-Muslim backlash that they have not allowed the public to have information that 1-5 wackos among us might misuse against Muslims, like the landlord who killed the little kid. The suppression of truth is a violence to the victims, every bit as dehumanizing as the abuse itself--even if it doesn't require as much psychopathy to pull it off. if they wanted to reduce backlash against Muslims, why not put one of the many, many, many Muslims who would unequivocally condemn the use of torture, rape, kidnapping and indiscriminate homicide on the media? These Muslims are not hard to find, I know several, but the media insists on putting-forth mealy-mouthed equivocators rather than those who fully and categorically condemn the attacks. Here, only the Canadian right publishes a story on this: https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/canadian-headed-muslim-group-condemns-oct-7-attacks-bans-members-from-rallies Silencing this large group of Muslims puts Muslims at risk--both in terms of allowing the public to generalize against them.
I have also noted that the completely indefensible denial of October 7 started and grew with intellectually justifiable equivocations about the attacks, then came intellectual plausible claims of Israeli maltreatment of Gazans, and then spread to arguable accusations of dishonesty against the Israelis... all of this set-up a claim for Hamas being on-balance, more oppressed, and intellectually lazy westerners like cognitive neatness: they are predisposed to reject any details that do not fit into the binary judgment of "Hamas better than Israel", and they don't look at the specific details when the media fails to confront them with these damning details.
This is a growing disaster, and the media is never going to correct the errors it fuels even when it comes to violence against Jews, which it has worked very hard to downplay and muddle (Detroit rabbi, California protestor). The media is responsible for any pogrom that occurs from here on out.
The 10/7 deniers also attempt to couch the raid as a military operation, as thoroughly ludicrous as the proposition that Hamas does not use human shields and does not use hospitals and schools as military bases and armories.
What do you make of the denialists who question where the IDF were and what took so long and leap to the conclusion this is all a false flag op. I’ve read enough to fill in the gaps myself and can see how they failed to protect people but some such as James Delingpole are using this to imply it’s all a set up by larger forces intent on chaos etc etc swivel eyed nonsense but how to counter it??
On Oct 8 or 9, I emailed pretty much every group that I could think of. My suggestion was to create a publicly accessible database of pictures, first-person accounts, and documents about Oct 8. I am not an important person, and no one paid any attention. Sure enough, the "Oct 7 Massacre Denialism" industry is going full speed ahead. There should be pictures of the raped women who were mutilated. There should be pictures of the dead babies. As it is, now, we see nothing but pictures from Gaza. Israel is losing because they did not document this. EVEN THOUGH SOME PICTURES WOULD BE BRUTAL, they should be out there.
Balanced journalism requires objectivity the old trope of Holocaust denial does not justify genocide on the Palestinians in Gaza. The position you take does not justify murder of women and children in a squalid prison with no way out and innocent boys and men as well. Where is your humanity?
there was no rp party. all lies made up by white colonists from US and Europe who are intent on slaughtering the native ppl of palestine. you see, you just cant go around slaughtering natives like they used to do 200 years ago. the only way that can be done now is by lying about it. guess you bought it
its not anti semitism to note that israel holds all the cards with the israel palestinian issue. native arabs hold no cards. Palestinians complied with the oslo accords, with the exception of a few hold outs. the party of bibi murdered Rabin and then aggressively enacted an illegal campaign of ethinic cleansing via its illegal settlements. when two parties are in conflict its often difficult to determine who to blame. thats not the case here.
just as gender ideology is really one of the most homophobic interventions man has ever enacted that harms gays, so too does the israel palestinian issue harm jewish people. when the state of israel perpetrates illegal ethinic cleansing of millions of native people while keeping millions of people in a harsh illegal prison for the past 56 years while 8 billion people watch, what can be said? this doesnt improve israel security. it just proves that the people running israel are incompetent and the US gov is corrupt. the illegal occupation of millions of native palestinians by white colonists from US and europe cant be justified. i feel sorry for those who have had to suffer this trauma on a personal basis. its clear that trauma is all thats left of the judgement of those who give a blank check to israel to carry out an unnecessary and counter productive humanitarian disaster.
