Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs ridicules foreign press in cartoon defending Gaza attack

Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs posted a satirical cartoon video today ridiculing foreign journalists and their coverage of the Gaza Strip for failing to report that “terror rules Gaza,”—not Israel.

The video opens with a blond broadcast correspondent filming a segment on Gaza, where “the people here are just trying to live quiet lives. There are no terrorists here, just ordinary people.” In the background, a masked Hamas militant is firing a rocket.

In the following scene the naive reporter is filming in front of a tunnel, dubbing it, “Gaza’s underground city, a fascinating attempt by Hamas to build a subway system.”

Next, the journalist is back above ground praising Gaza’s “liberal and pluralistic” society while another masked Hamas member bags and abducts a cartoon Gay Palestinian (he has a rainbow flag) in a sleeveless shirt who is selling fruit.

But the foreign journalists misses everything. “Wait, just a minute,” interrupts a female character, passing the reporter a pair of glasses. Voila! With the special eye-wear the journalist can “see the reality of life under Hamas rule.” Overcome, the reporter has a heart attack and keels over.

The video, produced in English, comes amid renewed focus on the 2014 summer war between Israel and Hamas. The United Nations is set to release a report outlining war crimes in the next few days, which the Palestinian Authority has said it will include in their dossier of charges against Israel at the International Criminal Court. Israel published its own lengthy legal inquiry absolving itself of misconduct under international law during the war on Sunday. A link to that report is on the government website to the right of the cartoon.

Over the past year Israel’s foreign ministry has produced similar cartoon videos about the summer war. The same blond-man-journalist character was also depicted as an activist in the video, “Who Occupies Gaza?” (Answer: not Israel, Hamas occupies Gaza according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs). As well the same computerized narrator voice of reason was previously employed in a video called, “There Is No Israeli Siege On Gaza.”

    Any country in the 21st century that has to resort to deceptive cartoons, and other crude forms of blatant propaganda in attempts to hide the truth, clearly realizes that the day of atonement is near. Soon the world at large will finally demand justice for the war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and Apartheid being perpetrated against the Palestinian people by Israel which is still occurring as I write this comment.

    No group in the world has screamed louder about demands for justice, or received more compensation for when their suffering under the Nazis. So it is fascinating to watch the manipulations, distortions, bullying, bribing, threatening and lying as Israel tries to forestall the inevitable and rightful retribution that is about to befall them. Just as they demanded justice for the crimes against them, they to must pay the same price for the very same crime of perpetrating a Holocaust against the Palestinian people.

    If we forget completely about the political ramifications and focus just on the humor, these fall far short of humor. If one is extremely in favor of Israel and it’s crimes, it is still greatly lacking. D-

    My favorite cartoon is Nuttinyahoo holding Iranian “bomb” ready to go off any minute. Chirping the same garbage for 30yrs. Still false.
