(Max does an outstanding job presenting damning evidence against the Israeli military and government and the propaganda outlets they control with regard to how they manipulated this latest “crisis” in order to use it to their advantage. What he doesn’t say outright is that all of this information he provides points to a rather chilling conclusion regarding who really orchestrated the kidnapping and alleged murder of the three Israeli men in the first place. A very good read on what is happening in Israel right now. An ultra-nationalistic, far right-wing fascism movement is being cultivated in the middle-eastern nation that “shares our values”. Notice the sticker on that kid’s shirt. It makes reference to Meir Kahane saying he was “right”. He was a convicted terrorist here in the states having admitted to bombing several sites due to his hatred of the Soviet Union and socialism. He forged a new identity so he could work for the FBI and infiltrate the John Birch Society and make them hate communism and socialism as much as he did. Kahane “preached a radical form of Jewish nationalism which reflected racism, violence and political extremism“. His ultimate goal was too “annex” both Gaza and the West Bank for “Greater Israel” in short, he wanted to wipe Palestine off the map. His “radical” belief system is no longer so “radical” in Israel these days, is it?)

“Cursed be he who says, ‘Avenge!‘ “
—Chaim Bialik, from “On The Slaughter”
From the moment three Israeli teens were reported missing last month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the country’s military-intelligence apparatus suppressed the flow of information to the general public. Through a toxic blend of propaganda, subterfuge and incitement, they inflamed a precarious situation, manipulating Israelis into supporting their agenda until they made an utterly avoidable nightmare inevitable.
Israeli police, intelligence officials and Netanyahu knew within hours of the kidnapping and murder of the three teens that they had been killed. And they knew who the prime suspects were less than a day after the kidnapping was reported.
Rather than reveal these details to the public, Israel’s Shin Bet intelligence agency imposed a gag order on the national media, barring news outlets from reporting that the teens had almost certainly been killed, and forbidding them from revealing the identities of their suspected killers. The Shin Bet even lied to the parents of the kidnapped teens, deceiving them into believing their sons were alive.
