Top 5 Lies About Israel's Assault on Gaza - Jeremy Hammond

Palestine Chronicle, January 3, 2009 -

Lie #1: Israel is only targeting legitimate military sites and is seeking to protect innocent lives. Israel never targets civilians.

Lie #2: Hamas violated the cease-fire. The Israeli bombardment is a response to Palestinian rocket fire and is designed to end such rocket attacks.

Lie #3: Hamas is using human shields, a war crime.

Lie #4: Arab nations have not condemned Israel’s actions because they understand Israel’s justification for its assault.

Lie #5: Israel is not responsible for civilian deaths because it warned the Palestinians of Gaza to flee areas that might be targeted.
