We must resist the urge to believe our eyes, and embrace that which is carefully constructed by power. That is why we are all so damned smart. Group hug.
Unless you were in Gaza seeing things for yourself, this is a very bizarre statement.

There has to be a name for this kind of delusion.... when someone thinks information they don't like is a lie of the media, but information they do like is their own experience, even though in all cases it's from the media. Nobody reading this has the ability to personally verify everything they hear. And if you don't think anti Israel media comes from powerful people with agendas, I got news for you! A lot of tankies seem to take Chinese and Russian and more recently Hamas propaganda as some sort of deep truth...

Confirmation bias.

Yeah, I guess that fits well as anything. Though I'm more talking about the delusion that if it's what they wanted to hear, they not only believe it but believe it is their own experience as opposed to just something they were told. But I agree confirmation bias is a large part of it.

When it comes to safe information, you really can't beat information that is funded by and serves the interests of the billionaire class and corporate interests.
They've never really led us astray. They've never lied about important things like wars, public health, and thousands and thousands of of dead people.

Trump, Musk, Bezos, Zuckerberg, Gates and the Koch brothers never lied? Amazing.

Basically what you are saying is instead of "wake up, sheeple!" this: "Be good sheeple, because others know better than you do." *yawns*

South Africa, which has good ties to the Palestines because of its own experiences with apartheid, has filed a case before the UN's International Courft of Justice, accusing Israel of 'genocidal acts'.

Israel strongly rejected that allegation as baseless.

The 84-page document states that the "acts and omissions by Israel" are "genocidal in character because they are intended to bring about the destruction of a substantial part of the Palestinian national, racial and ethnical group".

Israel wants to move Palestinians from the strip elsewhere "voluntarily". The Jewish government is in official talks with Congo, amongst other nations.

Last Monday, Netanyahu told a Likud faction meeting that he is working to facilitate the voluntary migration of Gazans to other countries.

“Our problem is [finding] countries that are willing to absorb Gazans, and we are working on it,” he said.

The prime minister was responding to Likud MK Danny Danon, who claimed that “the world is already discussing the possibilities of voluntary immigration,” though the idea has been roundly rejected by the international community.

The far-right Religious Zionism and Otzma Yehudit parties, headed by Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich and National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir, respectively, have backed the plans for migration.

On Tuesday, the US State Department called out Smotrich and Ben Gvir for advocating the resettlement of Palestinians outside of Gaza, slamming their rhetoric as “inflammatory and irresponsible.” Smotrich dismissed the comments on Wednesday, claiming that over 70 percent of Israelis support the idea of “encouraging voluntary immigration” because “two million people [in Gaza] wake up every morning with the desire to destroy the State of Israel.”

Netanyahu’s office has issued statements in the past publicly insisting that Smotrich and Ben Gvir do not represent government policy on the matter, despite his own comments last week in support of a population transfer.

Greta Thunberg continues to make herself obsolete as figure head of FFF. She was spotted at 24/01/2024 at a pro Palestine demonstration in Leipzig, Germany.

The protest was organised by the Handala organisation, a pro Palestine organisation which celebrated the terrorist attacks of Hamas last year.
