The Right-wing are in overdrive trying to prove how the children killed by Israeli forces in Gaza are fakes.
Their crocodile tears for ‘Muslim’ women and children are only for when and if they are murdered by Islamists; then (and only then), are these part-time ‘champions of women’s rights’ outraged. But if they are killed by US-led militarism or Israeli forces, well they must be fakes!
It’s like those who side with Islamism. They’ll be outraged about the Palestinians killed by Israeli forces but if those very Palestinians, Iranians or Syrians are killed by Hamas, Asad, the Islamic regime of Iran and their brethren, it’s just propaganda and ‘so-called massacres’…
This is politics devoid of humanity; it’s only concerned with the human being if it suits its interests…
Oh and by the way, criticising the Israeli occupation or attacks on Gaza are not anti-Semitism and bigotry any more than criticising Islamism is Islamophobia and racism against Muslims.
But then again, they are not really concerned with bigotry – just with pursuing their inhuman politics.
