Whenever Israel gets into a fight with its Arab neighbors, cries go up from those Arabs of unspeakable, innumerable Israeli atrocities. A left-leaning, anti-Israel press all too credulously accepts these reports, which are echoed uncritically by transnational NGOs and even the UN, which has its own anti-Israel bias. Thus the image the world sees is of a monstrous Israel Defense Force, one that is heedless of the civilian casualties it may cause.
The truth, as one might expect, is far different and begins with the fact that the Palestinians lie regularly and often. Here to correct the record is British Army Colonel (ret.) Richard Kemp in a video from Prager University:
It’s a point that has to be made over and over, as it does on behalf of our own military, often accused of crimes it never commits. (1) The Left and their allies in the jihadist movement will never, ever stop telling lies about either the Israeli or the American military, and so we must never stop telling the truth.
(1) No, I’m not saying either nation’s military is perfect. But both go to extraordinary lengths to avoid or at least minimize harm to civilians. The same cannot be said about our enemies.
