In a previous article I looked at how the Israelis have been very active in getting their arguments over, including their use of websites and, in one example, at how video they presented had been challenged....But Hamas, too, must be subject to examination. The use of propaganda by Hamas differs in that it is more broad-brush.

"The Zionist occupier wants to kill as many civilians as possible. The school is marked by the UN flag and the Israelis are just trying to justify this ugly crime."And this is the line that the left will run with in the press and beyond but they will ignore what the author says -


If that accusation were literally true, Israel could in fact kill any number it wanted. But the Hamas statement made its point - and its point is to be a rallying cry of anger and accusation. Such statements reverberate around the world. which only requires a modicum of common sense to see.
