For the last month, the situation between Israel and Palestine has been monumental news around the world. Here on The Inquisitr, we reported on this situation in the Middle East which includes the Hamas Charter calling for the destruction of Israel and the extermination of Jews worldwide and Israel successfully taking out a prominent Hamas leader.
It should also be reported that the the situation between Israel and Palestine isn’t just a war waged with guns and rockets, but also a war using propaganda. The Hamas has utilized this method in order to gain favor with the world as the victims in this conflict. This includes the use of “human shields” primarily in the form of children and ambulances. Take note that the Hamas knows that children and ambulances can’t really shield anything if hit with a rocket. The intent is if Israel does take out prominent terrorist insurgents riding in an ambulance full of children, the world won’t see Israel taking out a terrorist but Israel killing an ambulance full of children.
Now there are reports that the Hamas are dropping the ball with their propaganda in which they are showing the world the hundreds (maybe thousands by now) of people killed by Israel’s strikes… or are they?
According to The Conservative Post and The Most Important News, the Hamas held an Islamic Funeral and had it uploaded on the internet. However, there were other cameras at the ceremony too and they caught something missing from it: dead people. That’s right! Someone recording the funeral caught the corpses moving! Now it should also be reported there is no confirmation that all of the bodies are living, but the fact that numerous “corpses” moved (probably not knowing they were being filmed) shows the Hamas will do whatever it takes to have mainstream media support them.
The video was uploaded by numerous users on Youtube and is making its rounds. However, the mainstream media has not even touched this video whatsoever, and that includes Fox News (which I find surprising since they are very pro-Israel). Also, we don’t want to discredit the fact that many innocent people in Palestine are dying because of war. It is just a shame that the Hamas would use the deaths of their people as a propaganda tool.
Nevertheless, we want to know what you think about this video. Is this just another tactic by the Hamas to gain favor with the world? Even though the Hamas has used children and ambulances as “human shields”, did they cross the line with this propaganda video? Please let us know in the comments below.
Update: As it turns out, the video is fake. The clip is actually from a protest meet held in Egypt by a few university students and is not from Gaza as claimed in the re uploaded clip. We apologize for the error in reporting.
