The latest chapter in the conflict between the governments of Israel and Palestine is generating loads of media ink and huge, whopping lies. Heres a roundup of the top myths related to this war:
1) Israel launched a preemptive war. Congressman and former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul, suggested to Press TV the official propaganda arm of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that Israels actions were preemptive. His logic: Israel has nukes and Hamas doesnt, so its unfair. Look, a war isnt automatically preemptive just because one party was dumb enough to pick a fight it cant win. I mean, do you want your jihad, or dont you? This is getting confusing. It also isnt the first time Rep. Paul has lamented the lack of nuclear power in other Middle Eastern countries. In early 2007, on Fox News, Rep. Paul told me that he didnt have a problem with Iran possessing nukes. The whole idea of Israels nuclear advantage is moot, until Israel nukes Gaza and they havent. If you ask me, the Zionists are showing unbelievable restraint.
2) Israel is killing Palestinian civilians. Press TV says that 25 percent of deaths in Gaza have been civilian. These terrorists could severely curtail the civilian killing at any time by getting out there and taking their jihad like real men, rather than hiding around women and children like cowards. Hamass lack of warfare decorum, and insistence on guerilla tactics when push comes to shove, really isnt Israels problem. Israel is so caring and humane that even in the midst of war, they paused their military efforts to provide civilians with aid.

If someone was sending rockets on my house where my daughters were sleeping at night, I would do everything to stop it, and I would expect Israelis to do the same thing.

Congressman and former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul, suggested to Press TV -- the official propaganda arm of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad -- that Israel's actions were "preemptive"... a war isn't automatically "preemptive" just because one party was dumb enough to pick a fight it can't win... It also isn't the first time Rep. Paul has lamented the lack of nuclear power in other Middle Eastern countries. In early 2007, on Fox News, Rep. Paul told me that he didn't have a problem with Iran possessing nukes.
I refuse to call this the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. When I was younger people called it the “Arab-Israeli Conflict,” and that name worked fine, so I still use that. Somebody needs to point out what makes the Palestinians different from other Arabs — besides being stupider and more vicious.
Our politicians are too ignorant to know that the hatred for Jews stemming from the Islamic world has been going on long before Israel even existed.
