Find me a matching photo of Gaza

Here’s your assignment, all you Jew-haters: Find me a photo taken in Gaza that matches this image of devastation in Deir Ezzour, Syria.

Deir Ezzour, Syria

This area was hit with just about every weapon in a modern army’s arsenal. First there was an artillery barrage and aerial bombing, and then infantrymen went in and finished the job.

These holes were created by rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs.)

Deir Ezzour, Syria

The name “rocket-propelled grenade” is a bit of a misnomer. It’s actually a shaped charge invented by the Nazis in World War II. They called it the Panzerfaust, which means “fist-for-tanks.”

It was a single-shot weapon that was discarded after use. The warhead was a shaped charge that could cut through the armor plate of a tank. After the war, the Soviets created the RPG based on the Panzerfaust.

However, the RPG has a reusable launcher. The weapon is very versatile and can be used against armored vehicles, buildings, bunkers, and so on.

This tree shows heavy fragmentation damage, caused by high-explosive artillery shells and aerial munitions.

Deir Ezzour, Syria

The Syrian Arab Army drops bombs right in the middle of residential areas, without regard for civilian casualties.

This is the result of high-explosive aerial munitions.

The buildings are broken from the top down, and there’s fragmentation damage everywhere.

Here’s another view of destruction caused by high-explosive aerial munitions.

Deir Ezzour, Syria

Only aerial bombs can crack buildings apart and leave hundreds of pockmarks. It’s the signature of a high-explosive munition dropped by an aircraft.

More fragmentation from aerial munitions and field artillery.

In the foreground is another hole made by an RPG. Pressure waves from explosives knocked down some of the walls as well.

Here’s evidence of a light cannon.

It’s likely that a ZSU-23-4 self-propelled antiaircraft system was used.


It has four 23mm autocannons, and both sides use these vehicles as antipersonnel weapons. They tend to fire hem blindly.

At 1:37 in that video, you can hear a mouse crewman shouting orders. Maybe the Syrian ran out of men, so they’ve trained mice to operate their weapons. That would explain the Syrians’ inability to defeat an enemy who can’t fight.

The photo of Deir Ezzour, Syria, is what a city looks like after it was hit with indiscriminate fire.

Here’s the most heavily damaged area in Gaza, the neighborhood of Shijaiyah.


Do you see any fragmentation damage whatsoever? How could those buildings have been knocked down without creating all the different sizes of holes seen in Deir Ezzour, Syria?

Because most of the damage was done by Hamas improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Most of the damage you see in Gaza is the result of pressure waves. That’s the hallmark of the IED.

Where’s the fragmentation damage in this image of Gaza?


The Israelis used aerial bombs, missiles, artillery shells, and tank shells. All leave massive fragmentation damage.

Unless you aim really carefully.

During Operation Protective Edge, the Israelis fired artillery shells at open areas. The only time they fired artillery shells at an urban center was in the Battle of Shijaiyah. It was a last-ditch effort to save the men of the Golani Brigade, who’d been caught in one of the largest ambushes in the history of urban combat.

And yet the buildings to the right of the target area still have glass in their windows.


The Israelis also use inert aerial bombs filled with cement.


They’re fitted with a guidance system that allows them to be put almost in someone’s back pocket. Several Israelis have told me hat the IDF doesn’t use inert bombs in combat. Instead, they use explosive munitions with delayed-action fuses.

The problem with that theory is that such bombs would create massive craters.


Do a Google Images search: “bomb crater Gaza.” You’ll find maybe thirty altogether, from all the wars Israel has fought with Hamas. Most of the craters show where a terrorist’s house stood.

The simple fact is that the Israelis don’t indiscriminately drop explosive aerial munitions or fire high explosive artillery or tank shells. Prove me wrong. Find me photos of Gaza that look like Syria.


The hopelessly corrupt Human Rights Watch has a page about Syria.


Indiscriminate use of weapons, chemical weapons, torture, extralegal executions, kidnapping, barrel bombing, shoot-to-kill orders…

And here’s their page on Israel.


Palestinian eyewitnesses say three border guards killed a Palestinian official, Israel must stop demolishing homes of terrorists, and Israel should lift the blockade on Gaza and let Hamas have all the weapons and cement it wants. That’ll save lives!

The piece on incendiary weapons discusses its use in Syria and the Ukraine. The reason they put it under “Israel” is so they could use that photo of a Palestinian white-phosphorus mortar shell being fired at a UN school.

The Israelis used the M825A1 smoke shell, which is filled with felt wedges that are impregnated with white phosphorus. Felt doesn’t bounce. Also, the felt wedges burn out in seconds. The munition used at the school created a small “Medusa,” the characteristic smoke cloud created by the smoke trails of the felt or chunks of white phosphorus.


The “Medusa” of an M825A1 smoke shell is gigantic.


For whatever reason everybody thinks they can lie about Israel with impunity. Now why would that be? What makes Israel different from every other country on the planet?

A real head scratcher!

At any rate, I await your photos of destruction in Gaza that looks the image of Deir Ezzour, Syria. They shouldn’t be hard for you to find, given that Israel dropped 900 bleeblazillion tons of explosives on Gaza and tested particle beams, cyborgs, shark drones, and the matzoh bomb.
