CBC - Reaches New Low

In today's article, CBC reached a new low in its reporting on Gaza:

Gaza images stir emotions but fail to capture complexity of Israeli-Palestinian conflict

Photograph of dead baby picked up by media around the world has some crying 'fake news'

The reporter makes much of the propaganda value of the Palestinian loss of life on the border, and implies that the issue is just one of competing propaganda narratives. But ignores the fact that it was not propaganda that Israel was shooting at unarmed Palestinians, it was live bullets. For CBC these are somehow equivalent.

Of course CBC is always keen to quote Israeli sources even when they are inane:

"We haven't been able to get that message out of how it is from our side, what we are defending," said Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, according to Haaretz.

But even CBC states as a fact that Israel was defending its citizens by killing Gaza people on their own side of the border fence: These are CBC's words:

Unarmed Palestinians marched toward the fence separating Gaza from Israel, calling for freedom. Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers used live ammunition and tear gas to protect citizens on the other side of the barrier.

This is not news, this is Zionist propaganda. Israel knew that the Gaza people were ZERO threat to Israeli citizens, but that they were creating an embarrassment for Israel. It was to deflect this embarrassment that Israel butchered the Gaza people. If CBC cannot bring itself to say this, at least it should not repeat the bullshit that the Israeli snipers were "defending" helpless Israeli citizens inside Israel.

And CBC puts in the headline the the situation is so complex. That is Israeli bullshit. It is not nearly so complex as the Zionists and CBC would have us believe. It is a simple matter of INJUSTICE, that needs to be addressed, but is being entirely ignored.

CBC and the Zionists want us to believe that the situation is too complex to unravel, so the GLARING TRUTh of injustice can be hidden.
