The Palestinian Information Center has posted the latest palestinian propaganda video, which aims to portray their Friday “marches of return” as non-violent resistance.
The introductory sentence should already clue you in that this video is an own-goal.
Palestinian protesters are adopting new non-violent resistance methods in Gaza in the continuing rallies of the #GreatReturnMarch. Palestinians react to Israeli terror and bloodshed with rocks and fire.
Let’s break down what we just saw.
- An admission that they fly kites with fire that have “sparked several fires.” Of course, they are not being truthful by suggesting the fires have only been “in the region where the Israeli soldiers are stationed” – they have broken out in southern Israel and caused real damage. Also, the video does not mention that some of these kites have swastikas painted on them.
- An admission that they are deliberately damaging our security fence.
- An admission they employ tactics to make it hard for our snipers to hit their targets, such as mirrors and burning tires. Remember, our snipers are not necessarily trying to kill those engaged in violence, damaging the security fence or even breaching the border, but rather shoot them in the legs or otherwise incapacitate them. Yet the palestinians are doing everything in their power to make it hard, increasing the chances of fatalities on their side. This also could explain how those with “Press” marked on their chests have been killed or injured.
Remember also that Israel even dropped leaflets warning Gazans against trying to use violence against Israeli civilians and soldiers, as well as to damage, cross or even come near the border fence. This propaganda video shows how they ignored these warnings and went out of their way to do all of the above.
