PROPAGANDA WATCH: DUTCH ACTIVIST SMASHED IN FACE BY IDF SOLDIER
A picture is worth a thousand words, with that picture's words meant to only demonize Israel.
So as usual with provacateur staged events( with media on stand by)a predertimed narrative is displayed and lapped up by those with an appetite for it.
The full story how ever is ignored.
The part about how these people refered to what they were doing as the "flytilla" as an omage to the mavi marma "flotilla".
The part about how these activist assumed the presentation of cyclists on an innocent ride, while choosing the path of literal greatest resistance.knowing their was a check point that they were not going to be allowed to pass.
From the flags in their hand (and mouth) to the media that magicaly appeared at just the right time, all the standard hallmarks of a staged event designed to demonize Israel were present.
None of which of course absolves soldiers from smashing in the face of civilians.
The part that is left out of the story as it was distributed across the world, was the aggression shown by the "civilians" prior to one being struck in the face.
All video capturing the events as they unfolded are missing the footage of this supposed aggression.
In this video attached, filmed by the activists, they can be seen waving more people to come to the soldiers, not yield.Then the film cuts to the part where the soldiers are attacking the civilians.Gee i wonder why their is footage missing?
The follow up to the story is that Lt. Col. Shalom Eisner has been punished for the events that took place.A part of events of course that those so interested in the events of the middle east never seem to bother to report.Eisner is now excluded from military promotion for 3 yrs, suspended presently, and had a finger broken as well as damage to his wrist requiring a cast.The result of the actions mysteriously missing from the footage.
But this isnt important information to the world media.
Just that Andreas Ias was taking a leasurely bike ride with a few of his closest friends, wanting to take in the scenery with palestinian flags in their mouths and camera crews following, when a spontanious protest broke out.
Cuz that is all one needs to know.The whole story is just a waste of time it seems.
