Firstly it is important to note that Israel is a friend of socialism and is working primarily with China to build world communism. To win foreign policy must be pragmatic and not dogmatic. You must play the long game to win. China is the country doing the most with Israel at the moment so they are our ally and a big ally. Compare that with the Palestinians who are our enemy and are mostly made up of anti Marxist left ultra Maoists backed by the US to stop China working with Israel.
Naturally, the western media is suggesting that this was an unprovoked attack by Israeli police on a peaceful funeral procession. As always, that's not the real story.
The media have suggested that:
1. Israeli forces killed Akleh; that supposition is as of yet completely unverified.
2. Israeli forces attacked Akleh's funeral without provocation; evidence suggests this is plainly a lie.
People die because of these propagandistic lies.
Akleh's own family's wishes for the funeral procession were rejected by a riotous mob, associated with Maoists or western backed "Anti Imperialists" who grabbed her coffin and began to carry it through the city. Police intervened to stop this.
Plans for the funeral procession of Shireen Abu-Akleh were coordinated in advance by the Israel Police together with the Abu-Akleh family.
On Friday, about 300 rioters arrived at Saint Joseph hospital in Jerusalem and prevented the family members from loading the coffin onto the hearse to travel to the cemetery - as had been planned and coordinated with the family in advance.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
