(Politicizd) -- In the last few days, exceedingly dangerous rockets have flown into major Israeli cities, endangering millions of Arab and jewish citizens. The rockets, originating from Gaza, represent the latest conflict between Palestine, defended by terror group, Hamas, and the Israeli government, the only free democracy in the Middle East.
However, despite this reality, many have descended to harsh criticism of the Israeli state, calling it an 'apartheid or terrorist' state. Moreover, media personalities have furthered this agenda, often distributing incredibly dangerous lies.
On The Daily Show, Host Trevor Noah said, "In Israel, Hamas rockets have killed two people. And this exchange of fire comes after the Israeli assault in and around the al-Aqsa mosque that left more than 600 Palestinian protesters, worshippers and civilians wounded. And a few dozen Israeli police... If you are in a fight where the other person cannot beat you, how hard should you retaliate when they try to hurt you?”
The statement, widely misleading and inaccurate, claims that Israel initiated the conflict and assaulted worshippers in the Al-Aqsa mosque. This is completely false. According to accounts, videos, official surveillance and nationally recognized events, Palestinians brought rocks and stones to a protest and began hauling them at Israeli police. Afterward, following 21 serious injuries to the Israeli police force, police were ordered to clear the scene. This resulted in further confrontation between an ongoing violent riot. Consequently, Palestinians were injured.
Additionally, critics were quick to call Noah out for suggesting that Israel should let Palestine continue to send rockets, so long as the Iron-Dome can protect them. He goes on to insinuate, that they should not fire back 'because Gaza can't realistically beat them'.
The Israeli Defense Force and the Truth
In the context of this, conflict, the Israeli Defense Force has continued to hold great restraint with the understanding it could annihilate the Palestine terrorists in short notice. Moreover, while Hamas sends rockets into populated civilian areas, with the goal of killing them, Israel continues to warn, inform and make sure civilians in Gaza know where airstrikes are heading.
In fact, contrary to their own benefit, Israel personally calls Palestinian civilians to inform them if they are located near the next strike. However, the Hamas authorities tell these citizens to ignore the call and stay put.
Also, Israel only strikes areas, or buildings that contain terror plots, ideas and members. As a result, they realistically only strike necessary targets. But, Hamas purposefully uses hospitals, schools and public areas for terror, in order to put civilians in harms way. This tactic of human shielding has come under increasing criticism over the last 20 years, as it is now recognized as a common Palestinian tactic.
The IDF, the Israeli Defense Force, released this image in a threaded-tweet, explaining this truth.
The graphic goes on to explain how the Iron-Dome system is the reason for less Israeli casualties. But, if Hamas had the chance, they would kill every existing Israeli.
This fact was actually once, widely respected and undisputed.
In this clip from Real Time with Bill Maher, (from 2014), Maher defends Israel and emphasizes how Hamas would kill every Israeli if they could. But they can't.

Anti-Semitism in the Pro-Palestine Movement
On a separate note, as the current conflict grows, photos and videos of Nazi imagery, flags and ideology have penetrated the Gaza Strip. Seen flying at high staff, the Nazi flag has once again, risen to combat the Israeli state.
This obvious anti-Semitism continue to twitter, where Veena Malik, a Pakistani actress, tweeted a quote, attributed to Hitler. “I would have killed all the Jews of the world … but I kept some to show the world why I killed them"
The tweet was removed by twitter, but Malik has not addressed the situation.
Overall, as the clashes between the states continue to grow, the unprecedented lies and deceitfulness have continued. Moreover, an increasingly inaccurate picture is being painted of the Israeli state, empowering the overwhelmingly anti-semitic Hamas.
