Here is a link, one among many Rebel Media “productions” which glorify the state of Israel and its (lawless) expansion of murder and displacement of Palestinians. You might think it’s in jest, judging by the tone. But it’s not, as proven by the cesspool-emptier-load of material produced by Rebel Media in support of Israel and towards demonising Muslims as a whole (yes, all 1.6 billion of them). It somehow seems their rhetoric for a good year or two, capitalising on the immigration problem in Europe, has been leading up to this.
Even if marginally interested in the situation, as often is the case in the west, one has to admit this is stomach-churning.
And Rebel Media, of course, is not alone in this.
The simultaneous rise of Donald Trump, as well as other political figures embracing far-right rhetoric, and the rise of support for Israel as a state is almost too odd to be a coincidence (and please don’t mistake me for agreeing with those who scapegoat Jews for all the world’s evils, out of the same drive as those who scapegoat Muslims).
Support for Israel’s expansionism seems to come from the Christian right; those supposedly rational and kind underdogs, so demonised and ridiculed by the far left for years, if not decades.
Of course, how people can be warmongers at the same time as devout Christians is rather puzzling, if they take themselves seriously. The support for massive deportations in the US falls in the same incompatibility, but that’s a different issue altogether.
I don’t know what part of ENOUGH OF MASS MURDER these people don’t get, after all that has happened in recent decades.
