This article is intended specifically for Pashtuns, some of which were led to believe, by anti-Israel propaganda, that Israelis are children killers while the Palestinians are some kind of angels who suffer from the evil Israelis. I will not make the claim that Israelis are angels, nor would I claim that all Palestinians are evil, but I will prove that the opposite is far from the truth. I will try my best to encourage you not to believe me, but to use your own logic and reasoning, and to believe your eyes.
One note before we begin. When someone tells many many lies, it becomes impossible to expose all of them, not because some are true but because there are so many. The thing about liars is that if they continue to lie, sooner or later they always get caught, and when they do, any rational person would consider them going forward as unreliable source of information and would stop believing anything they claim. We will prove, beyond any reasonable doubt, that the Palestinians did fake funerals and photos, and staged videos or edited videos in a deceptive manner (like removing the violence of a Palestinian to make the violence of a soldier look unjust), and by that, they will be exposed as liars which will cast huge doubt over all the information that came or continue to come from them.
Funerals of Palestinians who were killed by the Israeli army (IDF) are a powerful tool to make people feel sorry for the Palestinians and to hate Israel. To prove that some of the ideas in which you were led to believe about the Israel-Palestinian conflict are false, we will being with this video of an unbelievable deception:
Yes. You see it right. This is a video of a funeral of Palestinians who were allegedly killed by Israel. The corpses are alive. Even though most people would never even think of faking a funeral, it seems that the Hamas believe in the saying "All is fair in love and war", even faking funerals. Have a look at this next video of yet another fake funeral:
Some Palestinians' funeral are probably real, but it is very unlikely that the Palestinians were caught in 100% of their lies, so we may assume that there were more fake funerals that went undetected.
Faking funerals is not the only way to make people think Israel kills innocent people. In this article we see how a Palestinian published on twitter a photo of a child that was killed by Israel. It is awful that that child died, but he died in Syria, and not by Israel. This is the important picture from that article, where we see at the bottom right corner that the Palestinian Alqassam Brigades terror organisation published a photo of a dead child who actually died much earlier in Syria, as shown in the bigger photo:
Here is a video that shows other photos of dead children that were published by Palestinians who actually died in Syria or other countries, and not by Israel. The video also shows how they caught their lie:
Like they say in the video, don't expect this to work with every photo. First, because some photos are really taken in Gaza, because children do die there, but not necessarily because of Israel. Second, because some photos are generated using make up or Photoshop.
I'm sure all the readers would agree that it is much easier to lie about the number of casualties in an Israeli attack than to go all the way and produce a fake funeral. So the fact that they do fake funerals raises the suspicion that sometimes they say that, for example, 10 civilians were killed by Israel, when actually much less, if any, where killed. Or, in other cases, may be 10 people were really killed but they were Hamas operatives who killed or planed to kill random Israeli civilians.
Doesn't it make you wonder?! If Israel kills so many Palestinians, why do they need to fake funerals and borrow photos of dead Syrians?
Please have a look at this video:
What we see in this video is children trying to provoke soldiers into becoming violent towards them. We can safely say that those children were sent on this mission by the reporters or someone else who has an interest in filming soldiers hitting children. The soldiers seem to be more amused than angry from the situation. Near the end we see soldiers run after a reporter, but we don't get to see what the reporter did to cause them to run after him. We'll see later that this is a pattern in most (if not all) the videos of IDF violence. Also, please notice that the soldiers were not violent toward the arrested reporter.
Now look at this photo that was published here, and in some other sites, as part of anti-Israel propaganda:
That is the same soldier from the video and the same girl. In the video he seemed amused and not angry at the girl even for a second... how did he become angry enough to hold here like that? And how is it that the camera men didn't capture this violence in a video recording but only in a still photo? They seem to be continuously filming videos, and it is obvious that they try to provoke the soldiers into violence. A video of violence against the girl would help the anti-Israel propaganda much more than this photo...
Well... the answer is simple. He was never violent towards that girl. Look closely at the hand with which the soldier allegedly holds the girl in the photo. This photo is a fake, and a very cheap one. It's much harder to fake videos so that's all they could do, and it was obviously enough for some sites to spread more hatred towards Israel. If they can't find news, no matter how hard they try, they just fake them.
There are many more fake photo of Israeli violence. The next photo wasn't faked with Photoshop. It really happened...
But does the fact that those 2 people were actually there in this situation in real life means that it is an example of IDF violence? Well, unfortunately for them, another photo was taken which proves those 2 guys are actually friends. Nice try, but It is staged:
Now that you know that it was staged you can look back at the face of the "victim of IDF cruelty" and see how cheap of an actor he really is. He tried to look angry but he actually looks like he just stopped breathing. And when you think about it, if IDF was really cruel, he would probably behave differently if a gun would be aimed at him... More like Palestinians usually behave in front of the Hamas. Even if that photo was real (it isn't) it would have proved that the Palestinians are not afraid for a second that an IDF soldier will shoot them. It will become apparent in what follows that they are, in fact, not scared for a second that a soldier will shoot them.
This video is also really good. My favourite part, although very sad and shocking, is on about 1:39, where we see a photo of a Palestinian child hurt by Israel, when actually the paramedic is obviously an Israeli and the child was actually an Israeli child hurt by a Hamas rocket:
Now check out this video:
The Israeli camera man claims that fire bombs were thrown from the house we see there, and that the old woman attacked the soldiers. You can either believe him or not. He also claims that the media there told the old woman to cry for the picture. This claim is much harder to deny, as we clearly see the younger woman there laughing while the old one is supposedly crying:
I would also like to ask you to notice how an amateur video looks like, with the camera shaking and all. It will be important in what follows.
This next video was cooked by Amnesty International. When the Hamas attacks Israeli civilians, Israel retaliates by destroying buildings that are used by the Hamas. The Hamas is cleverly hiding between civilians to protect it self against Israel's retaliations (we will see in what follows that they admit it and are even proud of it), so in order to prevent the killing of Palestinian civilians, Israel drops roof-knockers before a building is destroyed.
These roof-knockers are small bombs that don't cause damage, but alert the civilians in the building that they should evacuate. Israel gives them 5 minutes notice. It is obviously not enough to pack all their belongings, but while we can argue who is to blame here - Israel for destroying their belongings or Hamas for using their life and belongings as shields, you'll surely agree that 5 minutes is enough time to prevent any civilian casualties (unfortunately, even the Hamas themselves use those 5 minutes to evacuate). Check out what the deceptive Amnesty International did:
In case you didn't get it (it took me some time to understand), according to the physical laws of nature, lights move continuously (well, at least as far as we can notice with our eyes). That video shows how the light in the window moves discretely (jumps suddenly from place to place). That shows that the video was edited to make it look as if Israel doesn't give the Palestinians enough time to save their life.
These are not the only examples, there are many more. Next time when they tell you Israel killed or injured someone, please be more suspicious. Fooled you once, shame on them, Fooled you twice, shame on you.
And again, doesn't it make you wonder... If Israel is so cruel, shouldn't the Palestinians have enough photos and videos of real Israeli violence? Why do they need to fake them? We'll actually see some videos of real Israeli violence, and it will become apperent that even when the violence is not faked, it is not as unjustified as they would like you to believe.
Here is a list of suicide bombings of Hamas against Israel. You can see how many people they killed, most, if not all of them are innocent civilians (including babies) that never killed anyone in their life. You might ask yourself "Well, if the Palestinians are liars, why should we believe the Israelis that those bombings really happened?". That's a good question. The answer is that there is a ritual - after a terror attack one or more of the Palestinian terror organisations take responsibility. They are very proud of their work, the more Israeli children die the more they are celebrating, so the difference is that unlike the terrorists, Israel denies killing children. There's no point in proving the Palestinians are killing children when they admit it. This is how a civilian bus looks like after the Hamas do what they do:
And here is a different bus:
Now there is a new phenomena of Palestinian terror. Following the request of ISIS for committing lone-wolf attacks, in the last few months a few Palestinians decided to just go to the street and stab random people. Here is an example of such an attack that was caught by a security camera:
And here it is from the point of view of the Hamas, and what Abu Mazen thinks of it:
There were many such attacks. One of those Palestinian "heroes" even heroically stabbed an 80 years old woman. Once those terrorists are stopped, there are times when the Jewish civilians want to kill him right there and then. As Pashtuns, you surely know all about Badal (revenge). There were cases when they did kill him, and in some other cases the police protected the murderer in order to bring him to court, where he'll sit comfortably waiting for the next prisoners exchange (in which it is very common that Israel trades hundreds of prisoners for just 1-3 Israelis, or even just for their bodies so they could be properly and Jewishly buried in Israel).That said, the police and IDF (and everybody knows this) have a very clear instruction: After the act, a criminal/terrorist must be arrested. But during the act, if a person poses a threat to the life of another person, the police/soldiers must shoot to kill. This makes perfect sense. Imagine a crazy person running in the street with a knife trying to kill you. Would you want the police to aim at his legs, risking the chance they'll miss, enabling him to kill you? Or would you expect the police to aim to the center of his body, so that you will be saved? I think any rational person would agree that if a person runs in the streets with a knife trying to kill people, he is a dead man, and has no one to blame but his own murderous actions. Look at this video of the British ITV:
Let's exemine the facts, shall we? The video shows the man running in the street with a knife! No one is denying that he wanted to kill random civilians. The manipulative reporter also says that 5 people have been murdered in such attacks (That was then. More have been murdered since then). But he shows no decency when he is dramatically describing the spot where he was killed "The spot where he drew his last breath"... He also interviewed an idiot who blamed the police for shooting to kill. If someone was running after him with a huge knife and a policeman would have killed the guy who ran after him, would he then blame that policeman for using excessive force? Don't be mistaken. A lot of people believe everything they are shown without stopping to think for themselves. This kind of people would see this video and actually think that the Israeli police are the bad guys here for killing the crazy Palestinian terrorist. By the way, even if it was a Jew running after an Arab with a knife, the police would have shot and killed him too.
Now check this article. A crazy terrorist in France had a knife and was shot and killed by the French police. Did the honourable British news channel blamed the French police for being brutal? Nope. But I guess they think French people's blood is more Red than Jewish blood.
You are welcome to read a bit about how Palestinians killed Jews who accidentally arrived at their cities by lynching them (See here. And here is a Palestinian guy who saved Israelis from being lynched by other Palestinians). You should also know that about 20% of Israeli citizens are Palestinians. They study in Israeli universities, they are doctors in Israeli hospitals, I personally meet a lot of them every day where I work, and they even play for the Israeli soccer national team (for example, Walid Badir). No one is lynching them. By the way, for a Jew to go to some places in the west bank or Gaza is basically suicide.
The Palestinians who live in Israel do have some complaints of the way the state treats them, saying the state is better to Jews than to Arabs, but it isn't clear that even those are true, and those claims don't include killing Arabs at all or anything like that. Anyway, if you thought that Israelis or the Jews are crazy Muslim killers, someone has been extremely successful with his manipulative propaganda against us.
And what do you have to say about this one?
This is Jossef's tomb (son of Prophet Yaakov). First, I must clarify that we are not praying to Jossef. We actually consider people as pagans if they pray to anyone but the one and only God. One of the reasons we pray there is because praying near the tomb of the righteous makes a person think of that righteous man, and want to improve his way of life to become more righteous.
Anyway, they burnt it. Doesn't the Quran say that Jossef was righteous? It does, and actually mentions him many times. I know that some Muslims interpret the Quran and Hadith talk about 'jihad' as something that order Muslims to kill non-Muslims or at least tax them, and others interpret it differently. But even those who interpret it the first way... Was Jossef an infidel? Do these people even care about Islam? What kind of people burn a tomb? What if someone would burn one of your holy sites? What if those Palestinians would have burned Muhammad's tomb? what would you think of them? I hope my point is clear.
The Hamas said over and over again that they want to destroy the state of Israel. Because they have absolutely no chance against the IDF, they resorted to killing innocent civilians, although it is clear they cannot destroy Israel this way. In any case, it is clear that Israel must defend itself and its civilians (including Palestinians who live in Israel and are also threatened by the Hamas which doesn't care who it kills). We will see that this is what Israel really does. We won't watch a lot of Israeli made videos, but we will actually watch Palestinians (or pro Palestinian) videos that make Israel look bad, and by analysing them, it will become apparent that Israel is not a crazy brutal country.
Like I said, I am not claiming is Israelis are all angles. We will see in what follows videos where the IDF and police clearly use violence. When a person resists an arrest, hits a policeman/soldier or even just provoke him, any police force in the world (and in history) would use force to arrest him. This force can be a moderate force, or it could be excessive. But brutality is something else. Brutality means unjustified force. Even moderate force can count as brutal if it was unjustified. In order to have something to compare the IDF "brutality" to, here you can see how real brutality looks like:
In this video we see the Hamas beating people brutally. The reason they are being brutal is that we clearly see that they heavily hit people who didn't resist arrest. It also doesn't look like any of them tried to hit back... They actually looked very scared of the Hamas. This is one of the consequences of a brutal police force (or evil terror organisation) - people are afraid of them. So if the IDF is really brutal, you'd expect people to be afraid. We will see later that is not the case. Here is another example of brutality:
We see the Hamas destroying a Palestinian wedding. Even if there is a good reason, according to Islam, to destroy that wedding, they could have done it less violently. The first thing they did is shoot to the air. They also beat up some guy there who didn't look like he was fighting back. We can also clearly see the people there are afraid. Here is another example of brutality against Palestinians, but again, of the Hamas and not of Israel. Did they show you those videos? (Warning. Graphics)
And this one: (Warning. Graphics)
Even worse than the Hamas are the Pakistanis:
And here is another:
This is awful. And have you ever wondered why the Arab world and the Europeans don't get to see the cruelty of Pakistanis against Pashtuns? Or at least they don't talk about it a lot. Yet they see a lot of the fake photos and staged videos the Palestinians are showing them.
Please notice what is brutal about these videos. The guys who are getting a beating are not resisting arrest, and at least in some of the videos we clearly see that they were basically minding their own business... They are not pushing a soldier or throwing a rock at him or anything like that. Except for the obvious excessive violence, they are being brutal. On the other hand, if some guy would have punched a Pakistani soldier and got himself a beating because of that, even if the violence would have been excessive, I wouldn't have called it brutal because he would have brought that on himself.
Now after we've seen what brutality is, we can go ahead and examine the so cold brutality of the IDF. What we'll find out is that Innocent Palestinians are not afraid of them, even when they shoot to the air. Not-so-innocent Palestinians, on the other hand, are usually afraid. We will also see how some videos were edited to deceptively make IDF look brutal to cause people to hate Israel.
As I said in the beginning, I won't claim that Israelis are angels. There are some people that might be very closed to being angels, amongst them were Prophet Avraham , Prophet Yisshak, Prophet Yaakov, etc. But the regular people tend to be more humans than angles. That said, there is a big different between being human rather than angles and being children killers. Check this out:
There are 2 frames in this video. Both begin with a Palestinian getting a beating (the same one). But what did he do before that? Was he provoking the first soldier in a way that would make us think the beating was justified or not? And did he or didn't he fight back before many soldiers beat him up? I mean, at the end of the first frame it looks like the all incident was over... What made those soldiers all jump on him? Those who have been under the Palestinian methodological propaganda of lie and deception might immediately assume that this is an example of IDF brutality. But if that Palestinian punched a soldier then it seems reasonable the soldier punched him back. Even if a Palestinian just curses a soldier's mother it would make some people punch him. Wouldn't a Pashtun who follows the Pashtunwali, and specifically, Naamus (translated as "protection of women"), protect his mother's dignity in such a case? Even if some wouldn't, they can see why others would.
Lets go back to our question. What did that Palestinian do before he got a beating? And more importantly, why don't we see it in the video? There are 2 possible explanations. One is that the camera guy accidentally started recording in the exact timing when the beating began, stopped recording for some reason, and then started again when the second beating began. The other is that this video was edited.
Let's consider the first possibility. First of all, remember that I asked you to notice how an amateur video looks like? In this video the camera is steady, the camera man is zooming in when he thinks it's necessary. This video was recorded by a professional. Those professionals are there to film videos. Are we to believe that he was there with his camera off? Even if you think it is possible, why did he turn it off after the first incident? I mean, the second frame begins with a lot of soldiers beating the guy, although the first frame ended when there was only one soldier there and he wasn't beating him. What happened in the middle? How are we to believe that this professional camera man turned his camera off when it was needed the most?
The second possibility is that he edited the video. But why did he cut off what happened before the beating? this part is crucial for us to judge whether this incident was IDF brutality or not. Even if you think the force was excessive, if that guy was resisting an arrest it wasn't an example of brutality... What we can be sure of is that if he did edit this video, because this video was used for anti-Israel propaganda, that guy surely provoked that soldier.
The purpose of this analysis was to show you, if you didn't already know, how to notice the Palestinian deception. I would bet on option 2. Luckily, we don't have to guess. Here is the uncut version of this video:
It looks like the soldiers blocked the reporters from where they wanted to go. We see the aggression from both the soldiers and the reporters. We see clearly that the soldier who beat up that Palestinian in the first frame was already angry before that because some other reporter has threatened him and they taunted each other for a few minutes. In particular, that man that we saw getting a beating earlier is now seen threatening the soldier (before baking down) (4:02):
Look at this guys from the Afghan commando. Do you think they would let those reporters make threats and push them?
Notice how much time the reporters provoked the soldiers and no one has hurt them, although it came to the soldiers' minds. They really tried hard to earn that beating. And after that Palestinian has threatened that soldier that punched him, and pushed that soldier too, what really happened that made a lot of soldiers jump on that "poor unarmed Palestinian"?
Too bad we can't hear what he's saying, but I would guess he was threatening and cursing. You could argue that the violence at the end was excessive, but it wasn't brutal... The soldiers just snapped after the reporters provoked them for so long. It took a lot of effort to cause them to snap like that. From the edited video brutality was all you could get without deep analysis, and from the longer video we clearly see that the soldiers are no angels, but just humans who have a boiling point when they just snap after enough provocation.
In addition, remember how Palestinians were running scared from the Hamas? If the IDF are crazy Muslim killers, shouldn't the reporters and civilians be as afraid of them as they are of the Hamas? At around 8:10 we see that a stun grenade doesn't scare them. When the soldiers are running at them and telling them to go they only back off for a few seconds before getting closer again. Even when the soldiers were firing to the ground they didn't look scared. And please remember the videos we saw of Hamas and Pakistani brutality... If instead of the IDF it was them, those reporters would probably be dead now or missing one or more body parts.
Are those reporters heroes? Or do they know the IDF well enough to be sure they would never shoot them? I think that that Palestinian really wanted that beating. It was surely frustrating for him that he tried so much and the soldier just didn't jump him. He had a small success making one of them snap, but he wanted more. He got what he wanted - that nice edited video that presents the IDF as brutal evil maniacs who beat up an "innocent" by stander.
Here is an example of excessive force by the IDF:
While the force was indeed excessive, it wasn't brutal. Those who got a beating were throwing rocks at the soldiers for half an hour! The fact that some soldiers were hidden amongst them is a nice trick which can make the Palestinians frustrated that they were out-smart and got their rocks-party ruined, but it doesn't mean that those criminals who through rocks are innocent. And did you notice the manipulative France24 reporter? Opened fire? Those are rubber bullets. Even she admitted no one died, and real bullets kill, especially the way they aimed at the crowd.
Excessive or not, any police force/soldiers in the history of our universe would arrest criminals who throw rocks at them. This isn't brutality. It is very hard to stay calm and not beat up people who throw rocks at friends. It is also clear that the IDF didn't kill anyone. But the highlight is truly the France24 reporter saying they "opened fire" forgetting to mention that those are rubber bullets.
As a summary of the 2 incidents we've seen so far we can say that people who throw rocks are running scared when they see the IDF, and they get a beating, while people who "just" push soldiers are not scared and have to try very hard to get beat up.
Do we see IDF brutality here?
May be in this video?
The reporter surely try to make this person look like a hero, but he surely just wanted to get a beating to create a nice little propaganda video. Once again, the IDF soldiers weren't as brutal as the Palestinians wanted them to be, so that person faked a heart attack. Or at least this is what the reporter claims by saying he only suffered from bruises by his fake fall. I have to say that this video is just extremely strange.
And here we see soldiers making reporters flee with smoke grenade. No one is beating anyone. And please notice the calm protest at the end, in which no smoke grenade was needed.
It looks like the soldiers told the reporters to stay away, they didn't, so they through that smoke grenade. No one was hurt, and we don't know what happened before that, nor do we know why the soldiers wanted the reporters to flee. But do you notice the pattern? Notice who gets a beating, and who is scared from the cops, and on the other hand who doesn't get a beating and usually is not afraid at all even when cops or soldiers shoot at the air... And please try to remember some videos you might have seen of Palestinian children throwing stones at Israeli soldiers... Is it a sign of Israel's brutality or of Israel's softness? If you aren't sure, please imagine what would happen if you send your kid to throw stones at your favourite Pakistani soldier.
I hope the pattern became clear, but I'll specify it anyway. When people try really hard to get a beating, like taunting soldiers for long periods of time, cursing them, threatening them and even hitting them, they finally get what they asked for, mainly because any human has his limit that when exceeded he just snaps. It is also obvious that when people throw rocks or resisting arrest they also get a beating. Those people are usually scared of the police and soldier, like those guys in the protest, who ran fast once they realized the soldiers are there.
On the other hand, people who protest calmly (without rocks), and not resisting arrests, get through their protests or arrests without a scratch. Outrageously, even people who push officers do not necessarily get a beating. Those not violent people usually aren't afraid of the soldiers at all, because they know no one is going to hurt them unless they provoke the soldiers enough, throw rocks or resist arrest. And as far as we could tell, the videos show no evidence of unjustified arrests. Remember how even innocent Palestinians ran away scared from the Hamas? Those Palestinians prove with their actions who is brutal and who isn't. They live there and they know who they need to be scarred off and when.
To contrast them, here is a video of an arrest of Palestinians that might look unjustified:
The title says of course that the soldiers attacked the Palestinian children. But why did they arrest them? 2 cars of soldiers came directly to those children. We don't know what they did. It could be real brutality, but it is more likely that one of them is a Hamas activist because it looks much more like a targeted arrest, when the police got a lead on a criminal's location and went to arrest him, than police brutality of arresting random people. We'll see later the Hamas doesn't deny using children... They are actually very proud of it, so those kids could be activists of the Hamas.
Even if you still believe that this video shows soldiers' or policemen's brutality, you surely see the difference between this video and the previous ones. We've seen some examples of fake photos and videos, and edited videos. It is clear that even if this video shows brutality, it is rare, or else they wouldn't have to go to so much trouble to provoke soldiers until they finally beat them up, and later edit-out the provocation parts.
And finally, this is clearly Israeli brutality:
This is awful. No doubt. An off-duty soldier beats up random Palestinians. But know what? This whole video was taken from a news feed of one of the biggest channels in Israeli TV - Channel 10. It was broadcast to the Israeli people, who were shocked, and was available for the whole world to see. It wasn't edited to make the violence look justified. A Jewish prosecutor represented the Palestinians in court, and the attacker was sentenced to 2 months in jail and was ordered to give the victims 30,000 Shekels. If you ask me, it's not enough. He should have paid more and the judge should have been much harder on him, and that is what the reporter said too. But in Israel there's a major problem with soft judges, even when the violence comes from Palestinians. Anyway, while this is clearly unjustified violence, you can see the big difference between this act of a crazy person and the previous videos.
Human shielding is the act where a soldier hides behind a civilian to protect himself. It is forbidden under international law, and most people naturally see why it is morally wrong. An anti-Israel reporter shot this video which allegedly shows IDF soldiers using human shields. We will see that deeper analysis raises the suspicion that this video, like many others, is edited or staged (or both):
The soldier allegedly asks the 2 Palestinians to stand in front of his vehicle to protect him, but when the reported accuses the soldier of using humans as shields, the soldier denies the accusation and says he only asked them to ask their friends to stop with the rocks. If you can, please check out what happens on around 1:05. Notice the background noise that prevents us from hearing what the soldier really said to these Palestinian? It continues even when the 2 Palestinians are standing there, but magically disappears when the reporter starts with his accusations. How comfortable right?
Well, you could argue that the reporter waited until there was no noise to start with his accusations... But checkout this edited video:
Why did they edit-out the part where the soldier points forward and allegedly asks a Palestinian to be a human shield? I'm not saying it proves that this video is staged (and the Palestinians went to stand in front of the vehicle not because the soldier asked them, but because there wasn't any real risk and it made a nice propaganda video), but I think it is suspicious at the very least, or else why did they edit it? To contrast this video, see what the Palestinians think of human shielding:
Did you hear that? Besides admitting the use of human shields and even being proud of it, he says they desire death like Israelis desire life. Even though the Hamas, led by the psychopath Ismail Haniyeh, won a democratic elections for the ruling of Gaza, which shows that the majority of Palestinians support the Hamas, I will assume that at least a big part of them doesn't desire death so much, because we extremely desire life. And not just our life, even theirs, although some people find it hard to believe. Anyway, the fact that this crazy person admits the use of human shields, we have no reason to suspect this video is a fake:
See there on around 4:30?
Unbelievable right?! You heard them admit it and even being proud of it! If that child would have died in the cross-fire, who would you say was the killer? They would surely make it look like Israel killed him. Even those who support jihad against everybody would admit this is no jihad and that satanic idiot is no mujahideen, just a coward.
It is also obvious that in such situations the IDF does not shoot even though the Hamas crazy idiot might escape, because if they did shoot, many children would have died and the Hamas wouldn't have to fake so many photos (remember the roof-knockers?). Tell me, are those your brothers? Would a Pashtun do that to an innocent Pashtun child? or even to a non-Pashtun child? I'm sure he wouldn't. Now please see what the French, who are generally anti-Israel (even if someone lied and told you otherwise), said about the locations of the Hamas' rocket launchers:
They fire the rockets from kinder gardens on to kinder gardens. Did your media tell you that? Needless to say those rockets are aimed to hit Israeli civilians, some actually hit kinder gardens. Those poor Palestinian angels! Why do the evil Israelis fight them?
Just watch this:
This is just terrible acting:
And then they put those staged scenes on TV and broadcast them to everybody. It is so sad that it is just funny.
The Peace agreement with Jordan and Egypt proves otherwise. Too many wars were fought between Israel and Egypt and Jordan, claiming the life of many soldiers on both sides. Not even a single war was fought since that agreement. Over a million Palestinians who live in Israel also prove otherwise.
If you don't already know, the Palestinians actually created their own problem. In 1948 the UN voted for 2 countries to be formed. The Palestinians were already in the middle of a big war they started, and having their own country was not enough, they had to have all this land. After the vote Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt joined to help the Palestinians and attacked Israel from all directions. They all badly lost that war, although some of the Israeli soldiers were holocaust survivors who didn't even know how to hold a gun. They also lost all the wars that came afterwards, all of them they started or provoked. Here you can learn more thoroughly how the Palestinians caused their situation, although Israel was seeking peace with them time and time again:
Well, the videos prove otherwise. They prove Israel is not brutal at all actually. Anyway, just remember the fact that Israel has the fire power to eliminate Gaza in a few hours. No one is even thinking of doing that, although we know some really crazy brutal countries did that to their enemies, like the US did to the native Americans, Turkey did that to the Armenians, the Germans and their friends did that to the Jews (eventhough the Jews were never even at war with them), and given the chance, the Hamas would probably want to do it to the Jews too. Not only does Israel try hard to not kill civilians (you saw the roof-knockers), but Israel provides water and electricity to the Palestinians. They in turn use this electricity to build their rockets and their terror-tunnels,
By the way, the electricity is not the only resource they need for their terrorism. Much of the money that comes as humanitarian aid to the Palestinians who actually need it is taken by the Hamas and is used for building their expensive tunnels. They used those tunnels to get into Israeli towns and try to kill random people, which in turn made Israel retaliate, which in turn caused the Palestinian civilians more suffering. The same thing is true about the rockets they fire. The donors of this money probably don't really care about the suffering of the Palestinians (as their money makes it worse), or may be they are extremely stupid.
The proof is simple. The tunnels and rockets are a fact and they are proud of them, because they help them murder innocent Jews, and it is also a fact that the Palestinians do have a money problem, or at least that what they want us to believe, because they do take those donations... So either the Palestinians don't need the donations, or a huge part of that money that is really needed goes instead to fund terrorism. There might be one other option, which is that some countries, like Iran, love terrorism so much that they donate to terrorism which causes more suffering instead of donating to the poor Palestinians. Or may be both options are true.
They don't have oil, minerals or anything like that. They don't pay taxes to Israel, but sending troops there actually costs a lot of money to Israel. They are supposed to pay for the water and electricity they use, but they have a huge unpaied bill (the only controversy is on how huge it really is), and even if they'll pay it, it won't cover for the costs of having soldiers defending the citizens of Israel from the Hamas and random Palestinians who decide one day or another to run in the street with a knife trying to murder people. So what motive Israel has to control the Palestinians? Is this a classic case of an occupation army?
No. The English tried to control the world for money and fame, so did the soviets. The US are still doing it today. Israel gets no money and no fame. It has to control the Palestinians because if it doesn't they will attack Israel uncontrollably.
Iran says Israel created ISIS. The Saudis disagree, saying it is just Israel who created them. Yeah right, the Jews are also the ones who manipulated everyone to believe in global warming. Come on. This is a reminder of how the Christians used to blame Jews for everything, like the Black Death Plague. The worst might be this dirty atheist who hates God and blames the Jews for all religions. It just might be a matter of time until the Russians will blame the Jews that it is cold there, and when the oil will be running out, you know who Iran will blame.
If it was true, why did Israel send its dog to Vietnam? Or Afghanistan? Or even Iraq? Why didn't the dog attack Hizballa or Hamas who really cause Israel trouble?
The US has all sorts of problems, one of their manifestations is the war in Syria. I personally don't believe they created ISIS, but it is very likely they were the ones equipping and training the Syrian rebels (the evidence is that they are the ones doing it now). This act created the war which in turn claimed the life of hundreds of thousands of Syrians. Yet, I'm sure they didn't consult Israel. Assad, even though he is a crazy murderer, is comfortable for Israel, because he is afraid. Why would Israel want him replaced? For years there was no direct war between Syria and Israel, and Assad has been mainly killing his own people. It might seem to some people as a good enough reason to replace him, but unlike the US, England, Russia, France, Australia etc., Israel has its own set of problems.
So we see Israel has no motive to create this war, and not any of the other wars the US started, as even the oil profits from such wars always go to the US, not to Israel, and the weapons used in those wars are not Israel's neither. If the motive is absent, and no one has any evidence, what reason does anyone have to believe this imaginary conspiracy theory? I mean, it is true that most conspiracy theories relay on very weak evidence, but the most basic rule about them is that some motive has to be included in the theory. Here there's not even a reasonable motive.
One might think that the theory that Palestinians fake photos and stage videos is a conspiracy theory, but I think we showed enough evidence that makes this conspiracy not a theory but a proven fact.
If you don't already know, every people in this world consists of good people and bad ones, and of smart people and dumb ones. The Jews are not different. The Israel-haters like to find some bad and dumb Jew and film him doing or saying something bad and stupid. They then like to publish it to the world and claim that the Jews are so bad and dumb. All they prove is that there are bad and dumb people among the Jews, but that doesn't need proving because we always knew that. The existence of bad and dumb Jews does not prove all Jews are bad and stupid of course.
Listen to one personal story which might make you understand how big of a lie this claim is. In 1982, after repeated terror attacks on Israeli civilians and retaliations by Israel, the first Lebanon war began. The specifics are irrelevant to this story. What is relevant is that my older brother fought in that war. In one of the battles, he and his officer heard a man crying for help. They went to him to help him and he shot them both. If they've been less good they would probably be alive.
Some people, one of them is the Palestinian Mahmood Abbas, deny the holocaust. I personally heard testaments from tens of Jews who were there, saw the Nazis shoot people in the back, saw Jews going to gas chambers to never return, etc. In particular, almost all of my wife's grandmother family was murders during the holocaust. I was also at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. So I saw indisputable proofs that the holocaust was real.
Anyway, even if you don't believe me, don't want to go to Yad Vashem to see the proof doe yourself and think this is really one of the biggest lies in the history of earth, please do believe the Germans, who has been paying money for holocaust victims for years. It is not just them, but the rest of the countries that participated in the holocaust recognize the fact it really happened, like Poland, Latvia, Romania, etc. Basically every country who took part in the holocaust doesn't deny it! So you could choose who you believe - the people who were there in the holocaust - either as victims, as neutral civilians or as crazy Nazi murderers, who all tell the same story, or the people who try to spread the hatred for Jews, like leaders of Iran and Mahmood Abbas, but neither them nor their parents took part in the holocaust.
I heard this claim from one Afghan (who introduced himself as a Pashtun but I later found out he isn't, and probably isn't an Afghan at all). I don't know if many thought about it, but who ever did, surely has no knowledge in history. The Jews weren't expelled from so many countries. One of the main expulsions was from England. The Jews did well, like they did well in every place in the world. That made the locals jealous, which made them spread bad rumours about the Jews, like that we eat Matzot with Christian's blood in them for Passover, etc. Actually, those lies are similar to what the Israel-haters are doing right now. After they killed some Jews, they expelled all of them. I wouldn't call this an evidence that the Jews are bad people, but actually an evidence that the English are bad people. I think their colonial tactics, including their acts in Afghanistan and the fact that many of the first Americans were English (and killed almost all native Americans), prove the same.
Then we have the the expulsion from Spain. The queen Isabele accused the Jews of trying to draw Christians from their faith. This is of course a lie, as the Jews don't try to make other people Jewish because the Tora clearly states that the commandments of the Tora, given by prophet Moses, are intended for the people of Israel and not for other people. In any case, she gave the Jews 2 options - either convert to Christianity or be expelled. The Catholic Christians are praying to Jesus, who is, in fact, a dead person (whether you believe he was a prophet or not doesn't change the fact that he is a dead person) (By the way, we call God our father, but of course we know he isn't a father of a human being like Christians think he is). As Jews, we consider pagans those who pray to anyone but the one and only God. And according to Jewish law, we must choose death (and of course expulsion) over becoming pagans. So this is again not an evidence of the Jews being bad people, but just an example of the Jews being loyal to God and his covenant with our father prophet Yaakov and the Tora he gave us through prophet Moses.
There were many other pogroms and expulsions, some of them outlined here. None of them provide evidence that the Jews were bad people. We all know about the Crusaders and what they did, not just to the Jews. If anything, this list provides evidence that the Europeans are bad people. First they hated Jews for being Jewish, then when they became secular they hated Jews for their race (which is funny, because they didn't hate Arabs who also come from Avraham but through Ismail). Then the Russians hated anyone who had any religion. Now they hate Israel for defending it self against the terror of the Hamas while hypocritically bombing Syria because of the threat of ISIS. Seems like nothing can cause them to stop hating Jews. It might seem strange to you, but we always knew this will happen, because prophet Moses said so:
And you'll be lost in the countries of other nations, and the countries of your enemies will exterminate you. And the ones who are left would suffer greatly for their sins in the countries of their enemies, and because they sinned themselves, they'll suffer greatly even for the sins of their ancestors... And even when they'll be in the countries of their enemies, I (God) won't be so disgusted of them as to kill them all, and by that to break my covenant with them, because I am their God. And I'll remember the covenant I made with their ancestors when I saved them from Egypt in front of other nations, and called my name upon them, I am God! (Leviticus 26:38-39, 26:44, my translation)
Both prophecies in these verses came true accurately, and those nations who were bad to Jews were just fulfilling this prophecy not knowingly.
I know that some Pashtuns are under the false impression that the Jews are actually Khazars. As far as I know, this theory only relates the Ashkenazi Jews to Khazars, while there are millions of Sfradic Jews and Jews from Yemen. In addition, it is completely against our tradition. There were some converts to Judasim (by the way, one of them was prophet Moses' wife, Tzipora, so converts become part of the Israeli people like anyone with Israeli blood), but the majority of us, even the Ashkenazi Jews, come from prophet Yaakov (Israel). In particular, Most of the Cohens (may be not all because some mistakes might have happened over the years) come from prophet Aharon, and most of the Levis come from Levi, son of prophet Yaakov. The majority of the rest of the Jews come from the tribes of Yehuda and Binyamin (We are called in Hebrew Yehudim, and in Arabic Yahudi, which comes from the name Yehuda, the name of the bigger tribe of the kingdom ruled by the children of king David), while some come from the other tribes. Except for Levis and Cohens, only a few of the Jews know from which tribe they are (mostly those who have scrolls of descent that go back 2 thousand years or more).
Genetic studies of Jews showed that even the Ashkenazi Jews are not Khazars, and that a random Ashkenazi Jew from Germany is much closer to some random Sfradic Jew from Iraq than to a non-Jewish German, although they (the 2 Jewish communities) were separated for a lot more than a thousand years (some communities were separated for about 2000 years, and some even more). You can read more here in a web site of a commercial company that performs DNA tests, and this is about a research done in Oxford that showed being Jewish is a race, and this is an academic paper about the subject.
In order to not be misleading I should say that some research showed less similarity by checking different features of Jews' genome and some researchers even found some kind of a link to what might be Khazar-related DNA (there's no Khazars today so it cannot be confirmed), but the vast majority shows close genetic ties between Jews all over the world and a middle eastern origin. In particular, that academic paper I mentioned says:
The most parsimonious explanation for these observations is a common genetic origin, which is consistent with an historical formulation of the Jewish people as descending from ancient Hebrew and Israelite residents of the Levant.
And even without genetics, the reason our tradition is reliable is that it is very similar to Pashtun traditions. How do you know you are a Pashtun? You know that because your parents know that. And how do they know that? Because their parents did. As long as Pashtuns don't marry other people, the tradition is reliable. Unfortunately, in recent years some Jews started marrying non-Jews, but we don't consider their children Jewish unless their wife properly converted and kept the Tora since the conversion. In any case mix marriages don't happen at all amongst the religious Jews.
In short, our DNA and tradition prove that this is yet another lie which is intended to weaken the historical claim Jews have for this land, and to make Israelis look like they stole this land, although there were never ever a Palestinian state here (There was only a state of the ancient Palestinians, but they were not Arabic).
This land was promised to our father prophet Yaakov, and given to us in the days of prophet Yehoshua, the student of prophet Moses. We then lived here until the damn Assyrians took our brothers - the 10 tribes to somewhere in Afghanistan, and specifically the river of Gozan, which is called today Amu Darya. Then the damn Babylonians took the Jews (people of the kingdom of Yehuda) to Babylon, but the Jews came back after about 70 years of exile. Then the Romans expelled the Jews. Then the Persians took this land, then the Byzantine, then the Arabs, then the Turks, then the British, and finally, the Jews again.
There was once a country of the ancient Palestinians here, but they were children of Noah through Ham, while the current Palestinians are children of Shem through Avraham and Ismail. So if the people of Kenaan (amongst them are the ancient Palestinians) will show up and claim this is their land, we will answer that this land is God's and he gave it to our father prophet Yaakov. But the current Palestinians don't even have that claim. So calling themselves "Palestinians" by the name of the ancient people they have no relation to, and accusing us of being Khazars, is not enough to claim the Jews stole this land. No one can steal something that belongs to him. This land was stolen from the Jews, and God gave it back, like he promised he would by prophet Moses:
If you'll be lost in the end of the sky, even from there God will unite you and take you. And God will bring you to the land he gave your ancestors and it'll be given to you, and he'll bring blessing to you and make you prosper even more than your ancestors. (Deuteronomy 30:4-5, my translation)
He also promised the same thing by prophet Yehezkel (see Yehezkel 36, basically predicting the ones who return to Israel would be not righteous Jews, which is exactly what happen when this state was formed by secular Jews), prophet Jeremaya (See Jeremaya 31), Yishaaya (See Yishaaya 52) and in many other places in the bible. That's tough luck for those who think God left the people of Israel, but you can't argue with the facts. We always knew we will return, we prayed for this for 2000 years, and now it is realized.
Even though that this land is ours, we are not about to expel all the Palestinians from it. God gave us back a part of it and we are grateful. Most Israelis would happily agree to form a state of Palestine in the lands they currently live in, once they stop with their terrorism. And yes, you might see the settlements as a way to conquer more lands, but it is actually a way to punish the evil psychopaths who try to kill our children. It is hard to kill them because they hide behind their children, so instead of killing them with their children, Israel takes more lands.
Some Muslims think that every non Muslim goes to hell for eternity. This view is theologically flawed. I read most of the Quran, and noticed that it is obvious that a Muslim must believe that the Tora that was written by prophet Moses was somehow modified because there are contradictions between the Jewish Tora and the Quran.
God knows my heart, even if you don't believe me. If I though God wants me to be a Muslim I would have converted immediately. This is not the place to discuss it thoroughly, but I am 100% sure that to keep Judaism is what God expects of me. I have many reasons to believe that no one in history could have changed even a single verse in the Tora (There are many reasons, but you can simply think whether anyone could convince all the Saudis to change a verse in all their Quran books), nor could anyone have changed even a single word, nor even a letter (well, in the past 2500 years or so we know that 2-10 letters were changed by mistake because this is the difference between the Yemen Jews' Tora and the Ashkenazi's and Sfradic's Tora. Miraculously, all of those letters are silent and don't effect the way the words are read nor their meaning, like דכא and דכה - both are read as "DAKA" and mean the same thing).
The Tora was given by prophet Moses after (and during) great miracles no one has ever done after him (nor before him), and it includes many prophecies that came true accurately. In fact, as far as I know, there is no non-Isrealite book that contains even one un-guessable prophecy that is written explicitly and came true (by explicitly I mean it cannot be interpreted in 100 different ways, so there was a very high chance one of those ways would come true). In there the people of Israel are told they must keep the Tora forever, and that's exactly what I'm planning to do with God's help.
Again, you might not believe me, but God knows my heart. I don't care about this world and I don't care about the next. I don't care about Hell nor Heaven, nor do I care about the day of resurrection. The only thing I care about is making God happy, and this is "complete submission" (Islam). So I used the brain God gave him, with its power of logic and reasoning, and came to the conclusion that keeping the Tora is what will make God happy. I am 100% that God would not put me in hell for eternity for trying to do whatever I can, given the logic and reasoning he gave me, to make him happy, even if I am mistaken (and I'm sure I'm not). If he did it would be just cruelty, and we all agree God isn't cruel. And this is the theological flaw of thinking that Jews go to hell for eternity for being Jewish, and in fact, I couldn't find this explicitly written in the Quran (however, if someone doesn't try to rationally analyse his faith and just believes it blindly, then he might be punished, but we don't believe anyone is punished for eternity because the only point of punishment is to teach a lesson to the punished person or the people around him, or to protect people from him, and none of those is the outcome of sending someone to hell for eternity).
And know what? Even if it would have got me to hell for eternity, I don't care. Trying my best to make God happy is more important than not going to hell for eternity. If that was the case I would have stood there in hell, suffering with a smile knowing I did my best for Him. Blessed him the merciful and good God who created me, who's happiness is more valuable to me than anything else. He knows that this is all true.
Once a man who introduced himself as a Pashtun came to a facebook page of Pashtuns, which I read regularly, and started supporting ISIS. Now, every sane person knows that ISIS are one of the most evil satanic cult ever to exist, and in particular, they might just be one of the worst Muslims killers today (may be second only to Assad). That wasn't enough and he even started telling me all sorts of stupid and harassing stuff about Israel. I knew a lot of Pashtuns by then, so I wasn't too excited - any nation has its stupid and bad people, but that wasn't the case. The facebook page's owner suddenly said that that man is not a Pashtun but a Punjabi. It turns out that once the owner of the page asked the stupid man a question in Pashto he couldn't answer. I'm not sure that necessarily makes him Punjabi, but he isn't Pashtun.
A few weeks had passed and 2 idiots started harassing me and blaming Israel and the Jews for just about anything. I heard from people who I know are Pashtuns some talk of hatred against Israel (but usually not against Jews in general), but those 2 men were so stupid I couldn't even begin to explain anything to them. They were even much more stupid than that first man, and they even supported Pakistan... I didn't connect the dots back then, but it is obvious that a real Pashtun won't support them for what they are doing to Pashtuns. Anyway, I talked to a Pashtun friend of mine about them (the owner of the facebook page I was talking about). He said right away they are not Pashtuns and told me to ask them the following question:
ta da kum zai ye, ao pa kum bansat waayi Che Israel bad ao da Pakistan paoz sha dai?
They couldn't answer it. That friend of mine thinks they are Punjabi, but in any case, they are not Pashtuns. He and another Pashtun friend of mine are saying that that happens a lot - an idiot, who really has a very low IQ (a person can hate Israel and not be an idiot, but that's not the case) introduce himself as a Pashtun to Jews and tells them stupid things about Israel and the Jews.
One time, we were able to uncover the lie. In this post some ISIS supporter, who introduce himself as a Pashtun, started his usual ISIS propaganda. I asked him my usual question in Pashto, and for the first time, received help from a Pashtun friend. This is a screen shot from that post, just in case he would delete his messages after finding out how stupid we made him look, or facebook would delete his account:
Now, it is clear that some people are trying to make everybody hate Israel and all the Jews, like Iran, Hamas and their friends, so it isn't that special that they try to make the Pashtuns hate Israel and the Jews, as they do it with everybody. But here we have something really special. Why of all the people of the world, those people try to make Jews hate Pashtuns? Why aren't they posing as Punjabis or Indonesians to make Jews hate them? Well, I can't be sure, but if I had to guess (and my Pashtun friend agrees) the reason has something to do with our the next section.
In case you encounter Jews on the internet, you should know there are 3 high-level categories of people who call themselves Jews. The first is the religious Jews, who are keeping the Tora, and as far as I can tell, have a culture very similar to Pashtuns' culture. Until about 200 years ago, all Jews were in this category.
There are also secular Jews, who don't keep the Tora and who's culture is not Jewish, but mostly American, and some are really deep in the disgusting western pop-culture. The majority of the secular Jews who live in the holy land are not mixing with other people, so even though they don't keep the Jewish religion, they are Jewish. On the other hand, there are the secular Jews who live abroad, mainly in the US - most of them, unfortunately, are mixing with other nations. While some of them are now Jews, if they continue like this, in 1-2 generations, none of them would be considered Jewish, and real Jews wouldn't be able to marry them any more.
And finally we have non-Jews who call themselves Jews, like the Reformists, or Conservatives, and like people who went through Orthodox conversions but didn't think about keeping the Tora for a second, yet they lied and made a big show to make rabies think they do intend to keep it. They are not Jewish. All they do by calling themselves Jews is confusing people.
I thought that this information might be helpful in case you encounter a Jew who doesn't keep the Tora as well as you do (like if he eats lobsters) - it is because he is not from the first category, and it is possible that he isn't Jewish at all.
