Bureaucracy is why this keeps happening

Bureaucracy is why this keeps happening

Today an Israeli told me that the bureaucracy of the Israeli Defense Forces is the reason that transparent lies are allowed gain traction. The bureaucracy says that nobody has enough time to debunk the fabrications, and there isn’t enough money in the budget to do so. Well, I don’t accept that. The real problem is bureaucratic inertia. I’ll show you how quickly I can debunk a long-standing lie.

The death of Saji Darwish

I learned of this today. On March 10, 2014, a Palestinian man named Saji Darwish was killed. He attended Berzeit University, studying media.


He was either eighteen or twenty—depending on the source—and the circumstances of his death are debated.


We can immediately discount this version of events. The IDF has the most restrictive rules of engagement on the planet. They don’t kill people who are just feeding their goats. If you believe that Israeli soldiers came along and shot a peaceful goat feeder for no reason, you’re an imbecile. That story is a cartoon, a fable for simpletons.

Speaking of simpletons, we have Chat 2 Gaza, conversations between Brits and Palestinians. Their take on it is predictable: “How ‘Trigger Happy’ Israel is Targeting Children and Youth in Palestine.”

More fairy tales for idiots.


If you want to believe Palestinian eyewitnesses, feel free. I discount absolutely everything they say. But according to Chat 2 Gaza, the Israelis reported that Darwish was throwing rocks. Once we have that information, we can find this.


He was throwing rocks at civilian cars, not armored military vehicles, and he was an operative of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a terrorist group.


Looking around, I found postmortem photos of Darwish. The Israelis immediately turned his body over to the Palestinians.


At the hospital Palestinian doctors pretended to treat him.


They’re obviously working feverishly to save him, as you can tell by the application of tissues.

We’re told that he was shot; the photos suggest that he was hit in the back of the head.


No. He wasn’t shot.

The IDF uses the 5.56 X 45mm NATO round in their rifles. It’s comparable to the .223 caliber ammunition fired by the American M-16. This is the damage the round does to flesh.

Since the 5.56 X 45mm NATO round is designed to tumble inside the body, Saji Darwish’s head should’ve looked like one of these.

The bullet would’ve exited his face, leaving a giant hole (red arrow).


He had no exit wound anywhere on his body.

When he was loaded into the ambulance, there was not enough blood for him to have been shot in the head.


There was blood coming from his ears, and he had a laceration on his nose, the result of him falling face first onto the ground. He was dead in midair.


I knew what had killed him. All I had to do was find the evidence. It took me three minutes. From learning about Saji Darwish to discovering that he was a terrorist of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine to locating the proof of what killed him required half an hour.

The bureaucracy of the Israeli Defense Forces says that it has neither the time nor the money to debunk the lies. In reality, all they need is five people working eight hours a day.

Saji Darwish was killed by a rock that hit him in the back of the head. The proof is his knitted ski cap, which has a ragged, bloody tear in it.


Like Mustafa Tamimi, he was killed by his own people.


As in the Tamimi case, when the Palestinians screamed “YOU MURDERED SAJI DARWISH!” the IDF obediently took responsibility. But the forensic evidence is incontrovertible. Saji Darwish was not shot in the back of the head. That’s why there are no photos of his wound. Palestinians love displaying wounds, the more hideous the better.


Palestinian culture is centered around gore.

As for those that disbelieve, garments of fire have been cut out for them; boiling water shall be poured down over their heads, causing not only their skins but all that is in their bellies as well to melt away. There shall be maces of iron to lash them.

—Sura 22:19-21

Saji Darwish had a jagged, rock-shaped hole in the back of his skull, so the Palestinians hid it from the press. Of course there was no autopsy; the Israelis simply took the Palestinians’ word that Darwish was shot.

It’s a lie.

Don’t believe the bureaucrats when they tell you that nothing can be done to debunk the lies. I prove them wrong almost daily.
