Let me be clear here, Netanyahu Spokesperson Mark Regev Is A Highly Paid Liar

by M. Dennis Paul

On July 16, 2014, Israel wantonly murdered 4 young Palestinian boys, Mohammad, Ismail, Zwkaria, and Ahed, ages ranging from 9-11, all cousins in the extended Gaza City Bakr family of fishermen who kept their boats at the jetty where this incident took place. A fifth young boy remains in critical condition. From a short distance away at a hotel where numerous reporters and camera persons were staying, comments regarding this shelling indicated that the Israeli military appeared to have been chasing the boys with their explosives.

This from UK Guardian reporter, Peter Beaumont who both witnessed the incident and assisted in recovery of the bodies:

“The first projectile hit the sea wall of Gaza City’s little harbour just after four o’clock. As the smoke from the explosion thinned, four figures could be seen running, ragged silhouettes, legs pumping furiously along the wall. Even from a distance of 200 metres, it was obvious that three of them were children.

Jumping off the harbour wall, they turned on to the beach, attempting to cross the short distance to the safety of the Al-Deira hotel, base for many of the journalists covering the Gaza conflict. They waved and shouted at the watching journalists as they passed a little collection of brightly coloured beach tents, used by bathers in peacetime.
It was there that the second shell hit the beach, those firing apparently adjusting their fire to target the fleeing survivors. As it exploded, journalists standing by the terrace wall shouted: ‘They are only children.’
In the space of 40 seconds, four boys who had been playing hide and seek among fishermen’s shacks on the wall were dead. They were aged between seven and 11; two were named Mohammad, one Zakaria and the youngest Ahed. All were members of the extended Bakr family.”
After much outcry, Israel made an announcement that it would investigate the incident to uncover how the boys were killed and the other civilians injured. A typical pattern for Israel is to investigate itself and then exonerate itself. True to form, Israel claimed it was shelling legitimate targets, wiped its hands and offered nothing more. Later in the evening, British Channel 4 interviewed Prime Minister Netanyahu’s personal spokesperson, Mark Regev, who proceeded to deny everything possible while placing all blame on Hamas. Mr. Regev, in all the years he has been spinning stories for Israel, remains clueless about Hamas and no matter how or how many times his spinning is demonstrated to be undeniably false, Mr. Regev continues to spin. ( http://www.salem-news.com/articles/july012011/reev-time-mdp.php )

Jon Snow, interviewer on Channel 4, has had Mark Regev on in the past and personally decimated the ludicrous deceptions Mark invariably puts forward as the Israeli narrative each and every time. This outing with Mark was no different. Throughout the interview, Mark begins each mot of deception and spin with the phrase, “Lets make this clear” (with minor variation) as if his words are the fresh air that clears away the smoke. The exact opposite being true. Mark blows more smoke than any spinmeister in recent history.. and this includes the State Dept clowns and White House spokespeople such as Jen Psaki who has yet to perfect her dumb “I’m not sure I know what you mean”, act.

Notable, before proceeding, is the statement from the US State Dept. that Hamas is responsible for this incident because it refused the Israeli agreed upon cease-fire “brokered” by Egypt. Since the announcement of this so-called cease-fire, it was very clear that it was a staged media event to cast resistance movement Hamas in a negative light and demonstrate for all the world the magnanimous gesturing of Zionist Israel. No such cease fire was ever brokered between the warring parties. It was brokered between the instigator of this war and the Western and Western aligned allies.

Mr. Regev, of course, continues attempts to promote this fraud after exposure. Let me make this clear, Mr. Regev, you cannot have a “brokered” deal when only the instigating party and its allies are party to the “deal” you claim as brokered” and the opposition is neither consulted nor informed diplomatically. That, sir, is a blatant con job.

President Barack Obama, otherwise known as the “Murderer in Chief” for the number of innocent civilians he has killed in his many illegal drone assassination attempts, today expressed being “heartbroken” over the 4 deaths. No mention of the other gut wrenching murders committed by Israel against women, children, the elderly, and handicapped over the past few weeks, months and years (66+). Mr. Regev, of course, also blames these deaths on Hamas… despite all evidence to the contrary.

Jon Snow, in his interview with Mark, exposes the inappropriate denials of Mr. Regev as he attempts to spin additional assaults on civilians, hospitals and other non-military facilities. Regev resorts to the very worn out claim that Hamas uses these facilities as cover for its rocket launching whereupon Jon slams the lid on his head. Jon could have gone further and questioned why Israel bombed one hospital twice and then sent word it intended to do so additional times or why Israel saw fit to tell a handicap facility that it had moments to evacuate before it, too, would be destroyed. Or why Israel chose to destroy a womens’ psychiatric facility. Obviously, it would be exceptionally difficult to quickly move severely disabled patients and obvious, also, that there is virtually nowhere for them to go.

Regev returns to the beach and further spins that reporters claimed they heard outgoing rockets from that location. There is no evidence available from any news source to back this obviously false statement that he further juggles with a claim that this wide open beach is an “urban” area. It is important to note that additional shelling in this same area wounded four more adults and 3 more children..none of whom were combatants.

Mr. Regev slips in the further worn out canard that Hamas tells its people to ignore warnings to evacuate and, in his words,” No, Don’t leave, Stay and be human shields for our rockets.”

Try as he might, and try as the media might to paint Hamas at fault for all things tragic in Gaza, Hamas and the other valiant resistance organizations serving Gaza are doing what they can to protect Palestine from the undeniably evil assaults from Zionist Israel. They do so with little to no assistance from the outside, unlike Israel who is backed by the all mighty US and its friends the UK, France, Germany, Egypt and Saudi Arabia (where the real 9-11 assassins were from).

Try as they may to paint Israel as a victim and needing to defend itself, the facts remain that Israel has long been the aggressor (66+years), has relentlessly stolen Palestinian land and resources, kidnapped its citizens and children, tortured, maimed and murdered its citizens, imprisoned and detained its citizens, physically and economically blockaded Palestine, arbitrarily altered fishing limits which force Palestinians to attempt feeding themselves in sewer infested waters, fires upon fishermen within these arbitrary limits, sets fire to their boats, degrades them by stripping them and forcing them to swim back to shore, denies access to medical care at whim sometimes forcing pregnant women to give birth in the dirt and others to die while they decide whether or not to allow them passage to a hospital, disallows ambulances to reach wounded civilians, shoots children on their way to or from school, shoots sports students in their feet to ruin their careers, destroys homes, forces families to destroy their own homes, ransacks homes stealing and destroying personal belongings, beating abusing and torturing children from age 6 and up, supporting illegal settlements filled with hateful Zionists who burn Palestinian crops, kill their flocks, uproot their trees, set fire to their homes and cars, beat and kill their children and.. the list is disgustingly endless.

Let me make this clear, Mr. Regev… You are a highly paid liar for a group of seriously mentally ill individuals with way too much power for an illegitimate state. Be prepared to try and spin away the growing consensus that it is time to place a physical and economic blockade around Israel. Walls around the asylum, if you will.
