Netanyahu’s Deceitful Path to War

by lizard

As Israel bombs schools and hospitals, pushing the death toll over 1,000, a critical piece of information was disclosed regarding the 3 Israeli teens—Hamas was NOT responsible:

The Israeli Police Foreign Press Spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld, appears to have falsified the Israeli government’s claim that Hamas was responsible for the killing of three Israeli settler teens in June, by saying responsibility lies with a lone cell that operated without the complicity of Hamas’ leadership.

The kidnapping and subsequent killing of three Israeli settler teens last month is considered to be a flashpoint for the escalated violence in Gaza — that as of day 19 of the conflict has left 926 Palestinians, mostly civilians, dead.

At the time Israeli authorities placed the blame squarely on Hamas, with Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu saying “They were kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by animals in human form. Hamas is responsible and Hamas will pay.”

Netanyahu knew this within days of the abduction, but instead of being forthright, he put a gag order on reporters and exploited the situation to maximize incitement toward war. I wonder if this had anything to do with Netanyahu’s deceitful path to war:

After seven years of a bitter and at times lethalrivalry between the two main Palestinian factions, Fatah and Hamas, a historic Palestinian unity government has been sworn in , ending years of division.

The signing ceremony, which seems likely to complicate relations with the Palestinian Authority’s international aid donors in Europe and the US and increase tensions with Israel, was broadcast live in Gaza and the West Bank.

Despite the US secretary of state, John Kerry, telephoning the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, to express “concern about Hamas’s role in any such government” ahead of the ceremony, the US said on Monday night that it would work with the new government but that it would be “watching closely to ensure that it upholds principles that President Abbas reiterated today”, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

Israel, which suspended peace negotiations in April when a surprise reconciliation deal was signed opening the way to the appointment of the new government, reacted angrily to the deal. The prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, chairing a security cabinet following the signing, told ministers: “Today, Abu Mazen [as President Mahmoud Abbas is known] said yes to terrorism and no to peace.”

Israel must be stopped. Boycott, divest, sanction.

    • Horrible, Swede. Just awful, so condescending, misinformed and degrading to humans we call Palestinians. You should be ashamed.

        I knew you’d like it.

        • Does “misinformed,” “condescending,” “degrading” register at all? Or do you get all the news you need on the MSM? Drudge? Heritage? AIPAC?

            Various sources. Did take the wife to D ‘Souza’s movie tonight.

            Has all your favorites in it. Noam, Zinn, Alinsky, and Churchill.

          • Wow! Did you buy her flowers too? You’re such a romantic!

            You guys get off on that stuff, I know. Takes a high level of oblivion. I am curious, however – the images towards the end of that clip have Mr. Rushmore and the Washington Monument not collapsing, but turning to dust, as the WTC buildings did. Has D’Souza read Dr. Woods’ book?

            I do want to see that movie.

  2. Thierry Meyssan had this same information on 7/21:

    The current Israeli offensive against Gaza has several objectives. First, the Mossad organized the announcement of the kidnapping and death of three young Israelis to prevent the Knesset from passing a law prohibiting the release of “terrorists”. [8] Then, the current Minister of Defence, General Moshe Ya’alon, used this as a pretext to launch an offensive against Hamas, applying his 2007 analysis [9].

    I’ve come to expect good reporting from TM over these past years.
