In the wake of the release of more information surrounding the Israeli attack on the apartment building Nizar Rayan lived in, Israel’s PR team has come up with yet another, unbelievably STUPID talking point; they warned Nazar before dropping a 2,000 lb bomb on his home, and Nazar CHOSE to remain in his home WITH his wives and his kids.
I shit you not. That is their story, and it’s being repeated across the U.S. MSM… as fact.
An official who did not want to be identified said Israeli intelligence knew Rayyan and his large family were in the house. The intelligence called the home and told the occupants they had minutes to leave.
Rayyan and his family had minutes to escape but the official says the Hamas leader chose to stay. ABC News
I… am… beside myself. The fact that ABC News could repeat such an inane comment on television is beyond disgusting; it is morally reprehensible. It is spiritually offensive.
Talk about blaming the victim; and ABC went with the story? Based on “An official who did not want to be identified…”? That’s how ABC presents their “news”? I guess I wouldn’t want to be the “official” who had that ridiculous lie following me around for the rest of my career either.
This blatant propaganda, from one of our MSM news outlets, is completely unbelievable, and morally unacceptable. I will NEVER spend one minute watching ANYTHING on ABC again.
To show you that this is part of a nation-wide propaganda attack, I found the same nugget of info in a recent CBS article as well…
In what appeared to be a new Israeli tactic, the military called at least some of the houses ahead of time to warn inhabitants of an impending attack…
Israeli defense officials said the military had called Rayan’s home and fired a warning missile before destroying the building. That was impossible to confirm. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss military tactics. CBS News
Right. Got it. the story is “impossible to confirm” and coming from a source that doesn’t want to be connected with it, on the record… so what do you do with a story like that in the modern American journalistic tradition?… You RUN WITH IT.
