The Memory Hole:Gaza residents: IDF troops posing as Hamas men

I just wanted to stick this here as it has been memoryholed:

Gaza residents: IDF troops posing as Hamas men
Amira Hass, Haaretz 11 01 2009

The testimonies of Gaza Strip residents are revealing new details about the Israel Defense Forces' mode of operation there. In the past two days, Beit Lahia residents forced from their homes said soldiers were posing as members of Hamas' armed wing while advancing on the ground.

The daily pauses in bombing allow Gazans to meet with the displaced - most of whom are housed in an UNRWA school - and hear their stories.

Gaza resident S. told Haaretz he heard several people say they saw armed men wearing the uniforms and symbols of the Iz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, who "called out to each other in Arabic, as if they had caught a collaborator, and then, with the element of surprise, went into the houses."

A Gaza radio station warned that troops posing as locals were driving a vehicle normally used by paramedics. Residents said the radio broadcaster listed the vehicle's license plate number and color.

As one can see by following the above link - the story NO LONGER exists.

Anyway, I found it again via democratic underground, and pasted it here for history's sake.

Well done. Truthfully, there is no institution that they won't defile these people. All for them, nothing for anyone else.

And they disappeared it? Sure of course. The world is whatever they say it is.

I was thinking about the "muslims against sharia" people when I was reading this.

This is what they do, even on line, they pretend they are muslims or arabs

Then they mislead.

It is so deceptive
It is so manipulative

But then what is that book
by way of deception???

Hi guys,

Well at least it's up here. I can see why they tossed it though - as it is most likely the case that these 'rockets' are actually being fired by provocatuers. I mean, think about it. Currently Israel is pretty much occupying all of the border regions in Gaza proper. So one must ask: Who the hell is firing these party rockets? Really? Who truly benefits from their continued use? Not the Gazans.

By way of Deception...

Indeed.

The Zionist owned media is chock full of images of Hamas rocket fire. Neverthless, in the interest of balanced reporting, I decided to devote at least one of my blog posts to the subject of Hamas rockets. Here.

Wonderful Brian!!

Now if we could only get the msm to do the same - sort of a compare and contrast image presentation.
