Farcical Palestinian Propaganda Attempt of the Day

It’s been a Fatah vs Hamas bloodbath today, with 4 killed and 80 wounded, including 12 children.

But according to the palestinian Ma’an News Agency, the real news is the leg injury sustained by a Fatah clan member.

Hillis family shot in leg by Israel near Nahal Oz crossing after day of Hamas/Fatah clashes in Gaza City

According to Al-Jazira Ahmad Hillis, head of a Fatah-affiliated family in Gaza City, was shot in the leg during clashes next to Nahal Oz crossing. Reports say that Israeli soldiers shot him as he approached the crossing area.

Clashes between the family and the de facto Hamas-led government police lasted all day Saturday, and saw the deaths of two Hamas-affiliated security officers and two others who have not been identified. More than 80 people have been injured including more than 12 children, says Khalid Radi, the spokesperson of de facto ministry of health.

Because you can’t let a day go by without blaming Israel.

Despite the fact that this leg injury is hardly the important story of the day, there is another problem with it.

It’s not true.

In fact, not only did Israel not shoot Ahmad Hillis and his clan, but we actually allowed them into Israel.

More than two dozens members of the Fatah-linked Hilles clan fled the Gaza Strip on Saturday and entered Israel, after a day of clashes with the ruling Hamas faction had left at least four people dead and more than 80 wounded.

Israeli officials said Saturday that the Hilles clan members were allowed through a Gaza crossing into Israel, speaking on condition of anonymity since no official announcement had been made.

Clan leader and senior Fatah official Ahmed Hilles was among those who had reached Israel, according to a Palestinian official close to the events.

Meanwhile, notice how the usual voices condemning Israel when palestinians die after we target terrorists are silent while the palestinians kill each other. The reason is simple, really. They do not condemn Israel because of their great love for the palestinians, but rather because of their hate for Israel.

Come to think of it, I wonder if anyone is going to condemn Israel for Ahmad Hillis’ “leg injury.”
