The first victim of war is always the truth. Hamas knows they can not beat the IDF based on military power. So the Radical Islamic terrorist organization is trying its best to win the war by using «weapons of mass deception». The war in Gaza is a war were the bullets of negative media coverage, is more harmful to Israel, than any rockets fired into the Negev desert or towards Ashkelon.
Hamas has always been willing to use suicide bombers, and they even use their own children as human shields when they shoot at Israeli soldiers. When the IDF fires back, innocent children loose their life. Next: The Hamas terrorist parade dead children in the streets of Gaza. International media gets pictures for their « Breaking News», that put the blame on Israel.
The most effective tactics of Hamas is to pose in IDF-uniforms. When such soldiers massacre their own people, they might get International observers as «objective witnesses», accusing Israel of war crimes.
December 1944: Nazis in US-uniforms
In December 1944, Hitler-Germany used the same tactics to defame and confuse the advancing allied forces on the French-German border. Nazi-soldiers posed in US and British uniforms, driving captured Allied military vehicles.
This operation was called «Operation Grief», and was lead by Waffen-SS commando Otto Skorzeny during the Battle of the Bulge. «Operation Grief» was launched to try to stage-manage a German breake through into France during the Ardennes offensive.
Hitlers last attempt to win by deception lasted two weeks during Christmas 1944. The objectives of «Operation Grief», was to cause massive confusion in the rear of the Allied lines.
After the Ardennes offensive failed, the Nazi-leadership started to punish their own people. German soldiers were executed in thousands. The heavily bombed Germany imploded from within. In his last days, Hitler was of the opinion that the German people had betrayed him, and did not deserve to see another day.
Have we seen this in the civil war in Gaza?
The media campaign run by Hamas is very effective. By using the Nazi-tactics, they have been able to confuse the people of Israel to ask questions like this: «Can, it be true that our own IDF-soldiers have done such war crimes?».
Dont listen to them. Listen to your own general Ashkenazi.
