How many people, facing medical emergencies, may have died from the latest victim stunt, pulled by Hamas, in which the international media willingly colluded? As Bob Owens writes at Pajama's:
The recent blackout in Gaza was reported dutifully around the globe with Israel’s responsibility for the lights-out nearly always leading the story. The fact that it was Hamas that cut off electricity to Gaza City and then staged the candlelight protests against it was no secret — yet the U.S. media stuck to the Hamas-driven narrative...And how many thoughtless do-gooders will write a cheque, or lend their voice, to organizations enabling Palestinian fascism because they are shocked to "learn", from the Boston Globe, that Israel isn't providing half a ton of flour per person per day?
Or how many people fell for this apparent Palestinian media stunt that Wretchard and Richard Landes are revisiting?
Anyone remember green helmet guy, or the al-durah affair?
After the victimary left and the unelected promoters of "international law" and transnational bureaucacy, have successfully eroded the Western nation-state as the actor primarily responsible for mediating international conflicts and wars, will we have less or more violence? If you hope that systems of democratic accountability can help erode our addiction to victims, should one want more or fewer Israels, more or fewer groups like Hamas?
We might try to strike up a sane debate. But with whom? If you hate Jews, no lie is too evil, and the mainstream media reports them.
