In the ongoing fight against false propaganda perpetuated by Israel and its supporters, I will delve further into the alleged Kfar Aza massacre and the claim that Hamas decapitated 40 babies, which allegedly occurred during the so-called massacre. If you haven’t read my previous article on Palestine and propaganda, I urge you to do so.
For reference and posterity’s sake, here is a Google map satellite image of Kfar Aza before the Hamas attack. If it looks blurry, that’s because it is. Israel is special and gets to have their satellite images blurred.
The following news items presented by Google are a bit of a mess. You can see both the initial claims and the backpedaling at the same time. As I am writing this, the story I’m seeing is that photos of the alleged decapitated babies won’t be shown to the public because that would disrespect the dead. However, various officials like Jew Antony Blinken and unnamed NATO defense ministers were supposedly shown the pictures so you should just believe them.
There is a good reason for all of this hoopla. As Joseph Jordan (aka Striker) points out:
They will probably drop the beheaded babies thing after the war. The veracity of it is not the point. The reason Jews invented that hoax is so everyone is fighting over whether it happened or not so nobody notices that the Israelis are butchering two hundred fifty babies a day.
Jews accuse opponents of monstrous atrocities in order commit real ones against their morally superior and ethical opponents. (source)
So let us not forget the indiscriminate terror bombing that the Israelis are waging against the Palestinians—not to mention Israel cutting off their food and water supplies as well as fuel so they have no power.
Look at this rubble in Gaza. Is this what you do to a city if you are concerned about the lives of babies?
Back to the alleged massacre. According to Wikipedia, the total death toll is unknown as of yet. I am not going to pretend like people didn’t get killed during Hamas’ Operation Al-Aqsa Flood. However, I am highly suspicious of claims of Hamas fighters wantonly murdering women and children. For one, I have not seen any evidence provided for these claims. Secondly, Western media has every reason to lie about what is going on between Palestine and Israel. In fact, I have seen actual evidence of Hamas fighters avoiding killing civilians and heard an account of where they treated Israeli women and children civilly.
About the alleged massacre Wikipedia makes the following statement:
About 70 Hamas gunmen broke through a fence gaining access to the kibbutz on the morning of 7 October 2023. After entering the kibbutz, which was 3 kilometers (1.9 mi) from Gaza, the militants proceeded to massacre residents of the community.
So I checked out the Rueters article that Wikipedia cited. Some bold claims were made in the first two paragraphs:
KFAR AZA, Israel, Oct 10 (Reuters) – A baby’s crushed crib lying outside a burnt-out home. Corpses strewn on streets. Body bags lined up on an outdoor basketball court. The stench of death everywhere.
Just a few days ago this was the sleepy, scenic kibbutz of Kfar Aza, an Israeli farming community of about 750 people, many of them families with young children. Now it’s become a charnel house after Hamas gunmen burst out of the Gaza Strip on Saturday and laid waste to the village.
How am I, an average citizen going to verify these claims? Luckily there is a slideshow of pictures in the article. And there we have it, people in body bags! Hold on a tic… The caption says they are Palestinians. There’s 42 pictures here, surly there will be evidence of a massacre.
Here we have a photo-op that looks suspiciously staged:
I went through all the photos several times. All of the bodies shown were adult and all but one were men or the gender was not identified. I thought the following image was interesting because there seems to be tactical gear on the body.
Since there seems to be a lack of dead Israeli children to show The Times has employed Palestinian children for the task. Underneath this headline about Israel showing mutilated babies is a picture of wounded Palestinian children. Why would The Times mislead their readers like that?
As you can see from the history of the Kfar Aza massacre Wikipedia article, which has over 500 entries, many revisions have been made. It’s a fun read where you can see comments such as “I’ve read both sources provided and neither support the claims being made of anyone being beheaded, babies or otherwise” and “removed wiki link article only indicates bodies were burnt not that they were killed by fire“. In part two, I will delve deeper into the claims of the alleged Kfar Aza massacre.
