Do fake victories really count?

Do fake victories really count?

Yesterday Hamas claimed it had inflicted massive losses on the Israeli Defense Forces. What the Japanese and Germans learned in World War II and the Arabs learned during Operation Iraqi Freedom, claiming fake victories just ends up biting you in the rear end. I remember reading article after article that Arabs all over the Middle East actually believed this guy.


“God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Iraqis.”

What made Saddam Hussein so incompetent was that he shot the messenger. Therefore, nobody dared tell him bad news. The Japanese thought they were winning the war, right up until the atomic bombings. Nobody really had the guts to tell Hitler that he was a buffoon and that his ideas—like tanks too heavy to cross any bridges—were insane.

Hamas is putting out its own propaganda, but its being aided by the world’s press. Don’t be horrified by this image. It’s fake.


Hamas took it from a crappy movie called The Final Destination, also known as Final Destination 4.

Just as I was amazed that people took Baghdad Bob seriously, I’m amazed that educated First Worlders take everything Hamas says at face value and refuse to believe a word from Israel. It says a lot about the level of their Jew-hate. This is their mindset.


Does that makes the slightest sense? How will the destruction of Israel make Vladimir Putin or the Islamic State or Boko Haram stop waging war? But my Twitter feed confirms that the only war all these self-proclaimed humanitarians care about is the war in Gaza. When I asked my good friend Voodoo Criminology to condemn the atrocities that the Islamic State is committing in Iraq and Syria, he declined.

The only people on the face of the earth who matter to him are Palestinians, and only because the Israelis are fighting them. He says that debunking Palestinian propaganda is sociopathic.


Sociopaths don’t care about anyone except themselves. A person who has a functional brain and reads my posts would conclude that the one thing I’m not is a sociopath. But Voodoo Criminology also believes that words are worse than murder.


I asked him if the beheaders of the Islamic State deserve a spot in the lowest circle of hell, but he refused to answer. The only people deserving of condemnation are Israelis. But let’s not kid ourselves: He means Jews.

A couple of days ago I finally found an explanation for why Europeans hate Israel. Ilka Schroeder—a former member of the Green Party(!)—nailed it.

The Europeans supported the Palestinian Authority with the aim of becoming its main sponsor, and through this, challenge the U.S. and present themselves as the future global power. Therefore, the Al-Aksa Intifada should be understood as a proxy war between Europe and the United States.

It is an open secret within the European Parliament that EU aid to the Palestinian Authority has not been spent correctly. The European Parliament does not intend to verify whether European taxpayers’ money could have been used to finance anti-Semitic murderous attacks. Unfortunately, this fits well with European policy in this area.

The primary goal of the EU is the internationalization of the conflict in order to underline the need for its own mediating role. The Palestinians are playing the ugly role of being the cannon fodder for Europe’s hidden war against the U.S.

There is no difference in the consciousness of an average member of the European Parliament and an average German peace demonstrator, and I consider this to be a mixture of naivete, moralism, anti-Americanism, anti-Semitism, and anti-Zionism and an altogether serious danger.

Voodoo Criminology is actually indifferent to the fate of the Palestinians. They’re just pawns in his brave mental-war against the US and Jews. He has a lot of fellow travelers. The Daily Mail ran a piece about eighteen Palestinian family members killed in an Israeli air strike. Graves were dug on the al-Batsh family’s property.


It would’ve been nice if The Daily Mail had mentioned that the target of the air strike was Hamas police chief Tayeer al-Batsh.


This is the sort of thing that happens under his watch.

The deliberate killing of children. Cold-blooded murder. Voodoo Criminology blubbers about “The children!” but only when Jews accidentally kill them.

And here’s something else the Voodoo Criminologies of the world refuse to accept:

Hamas operatives and area commanders, as well as their rocket cell members, keep one part of their home for normal family life. A second part of the home is the command center, or the start of a tunnel. Daily life and military infrastructure are totally interwoven.

Hamas has given the Israelis two choices: Accept the continuous rain of missiles, rockets, and mortars; or go into Gaza and try to stop them, killing civilians in the process. But since Voodoo Criminology doesn’t actually care about the Palestinians, which one of us is the sociopath?

Fake victories

Yesterday Hamas bragged that it had shot down several Israeli jets and blown up tanks. These are lies. I found the claims here, on a blog with a pompous, laughably dishonest motto.


The F-16 Hamas says it shot down.


Another view.


In reality, this is F-16 Sufa 489, which blew a tire on takeoff, crashed, and burned. In 2006. The crew ejected safely.

Next is a destroyed Israeli Merkava III main battle tank. That’s the turret lying on the ground next to it.


Here you can see that a command-detonated explosive buried in the ground was what destroyed the tank.


The crater under the tank is obvious in this photo.


This tank was indeed blown up by Hamas. On February 15, 2003.

And now, a burning Israeli tank, destroyed on July 27, 2014.


Actually…no. It’s an Iraqi T-72, taken out during Operation Iraqi Freedom Phase I (March 19 to May 1, 2024). I found the photo on many forums. Note the date on this one.


When leaders boast of fake victories, it makes the population keep on fighting. More people die. That’s the goal of Hamas; they want a bloodbath so that people like Voodoo Criminology and his ilk will go on hating Israel. Let them. Hating Israel won’t accomplish anything. The Jews aren’t going anywhere, and they’re not going to stop defending themselves.

Yesterday the Iron Dome intercepted Palestinian Grad missiles over Petach Tikva.

Death in the skies over Israel.


The Israelis will win this war because they’re better fighters who don’t have to resort to ridiculous, moronic propaganda intended to reinforce the preconceived notions of sick, twisted people. Maybe someday air raid sirens will no longer be necessary. And if they are, maybe they can all sound like this.
