In any civilised society this tweet from the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs would be an outrage.
This tweet is direct from a racist Israeli propaganda sheet.
Anyone reading it would think the rockets came as an unprovoked attack against the civilian population of Israel.
In fact the rockets were fired in response to two political assassinations conducted by Israel when it simultaneously attacked the homes of two leaders of Islamic Jihad in Gaza and Syria, killing Bahaa Abu Al Ata and his wife in their house in Gaza, and the son of Akram al-Ajjouri in the al-Ajjouri house in Damascus.
So, what a truly heroic tweet from the Ministry. Attack the victims of Israeli aggression while ignoring the main criminals and the biggest crime.
Gutless. Ignorant. Misleading. Weak. Craven. Obsequious. The behaviour of a weasily accomplice to a schoolyard bully.
As we said in a media release yesterday “Whatever one thinks of the policies and actions of Islamic Jihad they are the micro issue. The macro issue is the brutal, racist behaviour of Israel which has terrorised the Palestinian population of Palestine and the wider Middle East for over 70 years”
The death toll from Israel’s murderous campaign so far is:
Israelis killed = 0.
Palestinians killed = 30+ including some children.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has missed the memo. Palestinian lives matter!
But all the ministry can do is produce computer generated rubbish straight from the racist, apartheid government of Israel.
