Telegenically Dead Palestinians and the Subversion of your Soul

Comment: If you want an example of Israeli disinformation/propaganda trolls doing their loathsome work then go to the comments under Mr. Quinn's original article.

Dead women, dead children, dead babies. Limbs missing, brains missing, guts spilled out on the floor. It's impossible to put a positive spin on those kinds of images, unless you're Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Two days ago, Bibi sought to explain why, in the space of a few hours, Israeli soldiers, under his orders, massacred 63 people, including 17 children, in the Shuja'iya neighborhood to the east of Gaza City. He said:
"We have to protect ourselves. We try to target the rocketeers, we do. And all civilian casualties are not intended by us but actually intended by Hamas who want to pile up as many civilian dead as they can because somebody said they use telegenically dead Palestinians for the cause. They want the more dead the better."
Think about that for a moment, and while you do so, consider this image of a Palestinian girl in her father's arms. Half of her head was blown off by Netanyahu's soldiers in the Shuja'iya neighborhood two days ago.

What Netanyahu is saying is "the Palestinians are MAKING us kill them". Many parallels could be drawn with this statement. The rapist who accuses his victim of 'making him do it' or 'asking for it'; the psychologically deranged murderer who claims that he killed prostitutes 'to save them'. When it raises its ugly head in civil society, this kind of twisted psychopathic thinking provokes revulsion and is universally condemned, yet when Netanyahu employs it in relation to the Israeli attack on Gaza, it's accepted as a reasonable argument that absolves him and his shock troops of the mass murder of civilians.

In spewing such pathological musings on the value of Palestinians life, Netanyahu is merely echoing the equally psychopathic thoughts of former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, who in the 1960s attempted to justify Israeli murder of Palestinian children by saying essentially the same thing:
"When peace comes, we will perhaps in time be able to forgive the Arabs for killing our sons, but it will be harder for us to forgive them for having forced us to kill their sons.Peace will come when the Arabs start to love their children more than they hate us." - Golda Meir
