Gaza Rockets Hit Israel, Lies of Gaza Supporters Spread Worldwide

There were no casualties from the six rockets fired from Gaza into Israel overnight Sunday, but the harm from the Arab Palestinian supporters for whom lies are truth is more far-ranging and more damaging.
Hamas supporters had no compunction about claiming widespread attacks by Israel on the Gaza strip, when actually the rockets were from Gaza into Israel

Hamas supporters had no compunction about claiming widespread attacks by Israel on the Gaza strip, when actually the rockets were from Gaza into Israel

PLEASE SEE UPDATE AT THE END OF THIS ARTICLE

At least 6 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip towards southern Israel very early Monday morning, June 24.  Two of the rockets were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system.  The other rockets landed without causing any injuries.  The areas that were hit include Rahat, in the Bnei Shimon Regional Council, Be’er Sheva and the Lachish Regional Council. Three more rockets were fired toward the Ashkelon area.

The rocket fire followed a surprise drill run by the Israel Defense Forces on Sunday.

Within a short time after the rockets began landing in Southern Israel, there were those on the social media, Twitter, claiming that “Gaza was under attack.”  That’s right, Israel is being shelled by Gaza, and the pro-Arab Palestinian propaganda machine immediately began pumping out claims that Israel was attacking Gaza.

In the space of half an hour, dozens of twitter reports in several different languages were announcing that Israel was attacking various points in the Gaza Strip, even naming cities being hit – Khan Younis, Rafah City.  There were reports of Israeli gunboats firing on Gaza from the Mediterranean and Israeli f-16s firing across the strip, but there were no rockets or attacks from Israel, the rockets were coming from Gaza, towards Israel.

Israel may always be better prepared militarily than its enemies, and it will always have history and law on its side, but watching the Twitter feed fill with lies based on absolutely nothing other than a sociopathological raw hatred was more than a little alarming.  How is it possible to defeat hatred that spawns lies in complete contradiction of the truth, and that is so easily gobbled up and spewed forth endlessly?

UPDATE: Long after claims of Israeli “first strikes” were ricocheting through the Twittersphere, it was reported that Israel, in response to the six rockets that were fired from Gaza into Israel, struck back and hit two arms depots at the center of the Gaza Strip and a rocket launching site in the southern part of the Gaza Strip overnight.  Unlike the claims made for hours by supporters of those who struck first at Israel, Gaza was not “under attack.”

  1. may they all be united with allah hadafuk hahazzah “in paradise” swiftly and soon…

  2. Warren Smith says:

    Can there be legal action against publishers. Eg : http://www.voanews.com/ today printed headlines "Israeli Military Strikes Targets in Gaza" – this is misleading and is wrong. Can they be sued. Then they may change.

  3. Israel hits back after Gaza rockets.
    Israeli warplanes attack targets in the Gaza Strip after missiles are fired into southern Israel late on Sunday night. Gaza's Salafi-jihadist threat Palestinian territories profile:
    I copied this over from BBC World News ME just now, they have at least reported honestly.
    As Warren states surely there must be legal action that can be taken against other media information sites – distortion of facts: libel.

  4. Robert James says:

    I wish something could be done as the Western news sources are nothing but propaganda sites, and not news at all.

  5. Stephen Tannenbaum says:

    As Honest Reporting has it: "It all started when Israel fired back."

  6. Bob Dale says:

    Same old story. I strongly recommend reading the PMW book Deception, to really understand how this works.

  7. Chaiya Eitan says:

    So take this information & respond to every Tweet that says that Gaza is under attack. That is what I am doing at the moment.

  8. Dominga Luna says:

    The irony of the world lie. There is not a person on this earth who has not done it…. Accepting and admitting them on both sides is what needs to start happening.

  9. Dominga Luna says:

  10. International Headlines should have read:

    GAZA ROCKETS FIRED ON ISRAEL EARLY AM 24 June 2013 not Iraeli warplanes attack targets, how many people read beyond headlines. In my opinion this is a subliminal message to distort the truth and facts about Gazans against Israel!

  11. These attacks along with the lies sent out show that this was coordinated and not an act by just a few but by an organized group. Taken as a whole, this and the troubles throughout the middle east look to be pointing to the Biblical fulfillment of Isaiah 17. Be watchful people and keep yourselves near your place of protection and your emergency supplies. The next few days, weeks or months are looking more likely to be a time of war, possibly the war spoken of in Isaiah 17. No, I'm not sitting here typing this in hoping for this war, but rather this is a burden on me to share the gospel of Jesus and the alarm. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  12. Cut off their intetnet connections.

  13. Robert James says:

    Those who pay for those expensive rockets should be the next on the drone strike list because they are nothing but killers, and they should be named and called what they are.

  14. Gil Gilman says:

    Stephen…lmao

  15. Gil Gilman says:

    I do have a point to quibble about: Pinnochio actually reformed himself at the end, whereas there are no hopes at all for these glory hounds. Yes…I mean both the perps and the media. The perps either are unable to hit anything at all except by accident, or live in dread of actually hitting something significant for fear of the massive retaliation that would ensue.

  16. Dena Gewanter says:

    It never ends…

  17. Linda Estrada says:

    One thing WE MUST ALL KNOW(IF WE DON'T KNOW)IS THAT THIS IS WHERE GOD IS FINISHING THIS BATTLE , AND HIS PEOPLE , "W I L L " BE PROTECTED AND SAVE , ! I'M TRULY BAFFLED BY THEIR enemies! Knowing GODS CHILDRENS HISTORY, 'what makes then even think they can even do ANYTHING TO HIS (GODS) CHILDREN? GO FIGURE

  18. Moshe Parry says:

    I say we turn their lies into truth by bombing Gaza back into the stone ages!!!

  19. IDF should get the territories that in the time of PM Ariel Sharon gave to the gazean in exchange of peace.

    So the BBC is a pro-Arab propagandist too? More Zionist lies and deceptions!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-23025865

  27. Weldon Morgan says:

    Gaza rockets? You must be kidding. Those so called rockets are mere glorified firecrackers.

  28. John Sekulow says:

    Weldon, you are obviously clueless and very misinformed. The rockets that reached Jerusalem and just south of Tel Aviv areas last November were Fajr 5 missiles (made in Iran) and smuggled into Gaza through the tunnels. Much more than "glorified firecrackers" Number of deaths are kept low because depending on we live, a great amount of time is spent in bomb shelters when the sirens sound. Cities/towns near the Gaza strip are often under these threats. Stop being such an ignorant fool. I wish I could comment directly to Linda Darghous – she makes several hateful and viscious comments (bordering on anti-Semitism)
