* On Sunday, June 14, 2015, William Booth and Ruth Eglash of The Washington Post report correctly Israel’s misleader PM Netanyahu as stating that “,,,the BDS movement is anti-Semitic…”. The article’s title is “In Israel, concerns rising over boycott movement”.
The AP Fact Checker states that in fact this is an absurd and inoperable oxymoron which reflects dishonesty on part of PM Netanyahu since in fact a rapidly increasing number of Jews in the United States and world-wide, support the BDS movement and, it goes without saying, Jews cannot be characterized as anti-Semitic.
* On Sunday, June 14, 2015, William Booth of The Washington Post reports correctly that as regards to the killing of Israeli children on playing on a Gaza beach last summer, the Israeli military has decided not to pursue criminal charges against the soldiers who killed the children playing soccer there and quoted correctly Israeli Military Advocate General Corps as stating that the incident on the beach targeted ” compound used to store military supplies, which was used exclusively by militants“.
The AP Fact Checker states reiterates what William Booth to his credit states in his article, that, after the soldier’s attack, journalists visited the breakwater jetty and described it as not as a “…compound used to store military supplies…, but in fact as a “shipping container and shed containing a few tools and fishing equipment, and that the area was – and still is – used by Gaza the Gaza fishing fleet.”
Of course it is well documented that during that summer Israel carried out massacres in Gaza which left more than 2,100 mostly unarmed civilian Palestinians and 500 children dead, many of who were hiding inside U.N. established schools.
The dishonesty which characterizes the desperate attempt by the Israeli revisionist Zionist right-wing extremist power structure to avoid the inevitable day of reckoning as a result of decades of crimes against the humanity of the autochthonous Palestinians whose lands it occupies in defiance of international law, seems to not only not know any limits but is now spreading into the realm of the surreal.
It is also highly deplorable that notwithstanding reality, U.S. Army General Martin E. Demsey, chairman of the Joints Chief of Staff, has inexplicably the ignorance or the temerity to commend Israel for “going to extraordinary lengths” to avoid civilian deaths.
