There isn’t room for any doubt about “The Independent’s” obsession with the Palestinian narrative and how driven they are to portray the conflict through their limited lens. The owners son, Evgeny-Lebedev confirms all our fears by choosing his first interview subject with none other than “The Prime Minister of Gaza”. So any thoughts of feeling slightly apprehensive when using his formal diplomatic title despite Hamas’s appalling human rights record, and without seemingly looking as if they’re championing him in the court public opinion are completely out of question. As the Independent is a card carrying member of every aspect Palestinian cause no matter how brutal and morally corrupt he so-called resistance is.

There’s no mention of  Hamas being a theocratic dictatorship who stone women on public beaches and throw political opponents off rooftops regardless being bed-ridden in hospitals. Perhaps its too   much detail for our Evgeny and his excitement in having access to controversial figures wont allow him to cast a critical eye.

Little Evengy  thanks to Daddy has much wealth but no class and imagination and  the interview is full of the party line where in the end you wonder why Hamas weren’t given the noble peace prize years ago.

The fact the owner of The Independent makes his first formal appointment with the “Prime Minister of Gaza” is all you need to know him and the politics of the Independent newspaper. Absolutely  no mention of Hamas racist charter calling for Israels elimination (Which guys is still fucking important to include) Plus the indiscriminate acts of mass killings on women and children inside Israel well  the list goes on and on and on….

So here’s the bullshit interview in full view and photos of the cuddly Haniyeh.

History will not judge the Independent newspaper favorably and when Russian oligarchs tire of losing money and not needing trophy assets such as running a British newspaper, these journalists who act as usefuls will have a lot of time perhaps to regret how allowing murderers and abuses of women, human rights were portrayed so positive and easily so.

For further proof a society deceiving the world about their inhumane conditions when if fact its far from it, according to YNET, “Gaza stores, markets offer latest trend – plaid shirt Gilad Shalit wore during handover to Israel – for NIS 60″http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4137569,00.html

This proves two things, firstly if Israel was the most important thing in each of the Gazan population heart and mind, and so oppressed by the Israeli blockade / apartheid policies, then how does the recent shift in the ‘Gilad Shirt’ sales explain this? Surely a shirt so representative of the Israeli soldier would be out of bounds for the Gazans? They even started a facebook group about his shirt.You would not find Jewish victims of Holocaust buying clothes worn or associated with from the Nazi party I think? For a real response to a hated regime and all the symbols which goes with it , is masterly featured in a Tunisian viral where Ben Ali’s photo is draped on the side of a building only to anger the public who act and tear it down, to reveal a message they should vote in order not to allow this to happen again.

This response is indicative of a people really struggling and ‘honestly’ fighting the occupation of hearts and minds. Not like the Gazan’s who when not thinking about the evils of Israel, can think about such things as “oh I would like Gilad’s shirt”

This leaves me to the second most obvious question, the shirt apparent costs $16 YNET:

Merchants in the Strip are now offering “The Shalit shirt” in a wide range of colors, for NIS 60 ($16.5). The demand, it seems, is very high.

 Evidence of the new fashion trend can be found on Facebook where at least 10 pages have been created in the last few days devoted to “Gilad Shalit’s shirt.” Thousands of web surfers have become fans.

Unless the whole of Gaza is having a right dose of the Stockholm syndrome , albeit in reverse, political commentators, journalists, activists, should all contemplate this compelling piece of evidence which again shows why we are right in our assertions there’s  no starvation, malnutrition, torturous conditions of Gazan’s and more principally Israel is only really used to further political goals when in fact the day-to-day reality is much different. The plight and the anger of Gaza like the Palestinian cause in general  is just a construct of the West through newspapers to politicians to activists. The sooner we have a grown up discussion that incorporates these realities expressed by people like myself on behalf of the Israel-Jewish narrative the sooner we can come to compromise.

Jpost today reports about Grannies for Gaza http://www.jpost.com/VideoArticles/Video/Article.aspx?id=229569

Two 69-year-old women, nicknamed “Grannies for Gaza,” were among those pro-Palestinian activists who successfully entered the country.

Sylvia Hale, a former member of the New South Wales Legislative Council, and Vivienne Porzsolt, a leader in Sydney’s Jews Against the Occupation group, had waited in Greece for three weeks for their ship to set sail for Gaza.

When they realized their vessel, the Tahrir, would not be permitted to leave Greece, the women bought tickets to Tel Aviv and arrived on Monday – two days after the biggest wave of activists came to Ben-Gurion Airport.

Because they arrived later than most activists, the pair had no problems at the airport, until they got to the passport desk.

“We told them: ‘We’re going to Palestine!’ That set off the red flags,” Hale recounted. “As they were taking us away, we called out ‘Free Palestine! Free Gaza!’” The women were immediately led into detention and went to court in Petah Tikva to be deported. But private lawyers appealed the deportation order and it was rescinded.

“They say we set a precedent,” Hale said proudly, adding that rescinded deportation orders are very rare in Israel.
The women are the only activists from the “Flytilla” to fight deportation and win. They are currently not allowed to visit the West Bank or the Gaza Strip, but are appealing that decision as well.

If helped the aged ever got involved with Palestine this is what it’ll look like “Raging Grannies'” Just no-body tell them about a good proportion of drugs they take to combat elderly diseases like Parkinson’s were probably designed inside Israels border. Phff.. It’s apartheid I tellya..
