The fake news coming out of the Palestinian Media and their supporters is often not at all reported or recognized in the Western Press. A worthy documentary on this subject Eyeless in Gaza was recently released. I happened to catch it when it was screened by the Student Society of St.John’s University, Manhattan, NY.
The film reports that “In reporting the Gaza War of 2014, these quotes appeared in the international media: “They’re calling it a massacre”, “Children and civilians comprised the vast majority of the 200 killed”, “All innocent people. All of them civilians”, “Israel is targeting a number of different places including hospitals.” This information formed international opinion yet all the above quotes are in this documentary clearly shown to have been influenced by the systematic intimidation, threats, torture and persecution of journalists in Gaza, of both local and Western media.The producers interview Palestinian civilians and journalists, Hamas leaders, UN officials, military analysts and Israeli spokespeople to arrive at these troubling conclusions.
The film is now available on I-tunes for sale or rent. I challenge you to watch this documentary and share it with your colleagues.
finally we have a name for this kind of “news”.
And just to further prove my point about the repressive tyranny that is currently going on in Gaza. I just saw this article about refugees fleeing Gaza not because of Israel but because of What the Gaza administration is perpetrating on its citizens.
