The Media at it again.... "The latest chapter in the conflict between Israel and Palestine is generating loads of media ink -- and huge, whopping lies." Here a snippet of some of the top myths related to this war - (to read entire article click here):
1) Israel launched a preemptive war.
Congressman and former GOP Presidential candidate, Ron Paul, suggested to Press TV -- the official propaganda arm of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad -- that Israel’s actions were “preemptive”. His logic: Israel has nukes and Hamas doesn’t, so it’s unfair. Look, a war isn’t automatically “preemptive” just because one party was dumb enough to pick a fight it can’t win.....
2) Israel is killing Palestinian civilians.
Press TV says that 25% of deaths in Gaza have been civilian. These terrorists could severely curtail the civilian killing at any time by getting out there and taking their jihad like real men, rather than hiding around women and children like cowards. Hamas’ lack of warfare decorum, and insistence on guerilla tactics when push comes to shove, really isn’t Israel’s problem. ....
3) Hamas was just minding its own business.
Besides having fired rockets into Israel to start all of this, Hamas is second only to Iran’s Ahmadinejad -- and maybe the odd Al Qaeda member -- as the heavyweight trash-talking champion of the world. You’d think that Hamas would have learned a lesson during last year’s Olympics from French swimmer/trash-talker Alain Bernard, right before he was blown out of the water in the 4x100 by Michael Phelps and gang. ....
4) Iran has nothing to do with this.
.... A Sunday Times of London article from last March quotes a senior Hamas commander: “Iran is our mother. She gives us information, military supplies and financial support.”
5) George Bush just wants war with Iran.
... Because yeah, it makes total sense that Bush, on his way out of office, would conspire with his close pal Barack Obama to make the government of Israel attack Hamas so Bush can get his hands on more oil in the Middle East. Naturally, the much more simple argument that Hamas visibly fired rockets into Israel and the Israelis got fed up doesn’t make enough sense.
6) Obama is waiting in the wings, and will save the world shortly.
About the only thing on which Al-Qaeda and the GOP have ever agreed is how useless Obama is, and how pathetically he has been propped up by the American media. Ayman al-Zawahiri said in a recent audio message: “This is Obama whom the American machine of lies tried to portray as the rescuer who will change the policy of America. He kills your brothers and sisters in Gaza mercilessly and without affection.” .....
7) George Bush has “studiously ignored the whole problem” of Israel vs. Palestine.
Or so says new agey expert turned political analyst, Deepak Chopra, in this week’s San Francisco Chronicle. No mention of the Annapolis Conference that Bush held in November 2007 with representatives of 49 countries to develop a new Israeli-Palestinian peace plan. No mention of Condoleezza Rice’s eight trips to the area that year. But none of this matters....
8) America doesn’t give the Palestinians any money.
No country has been as generous with aid to the Palestinians as America. And Bush gave Palestinian refugees another $85 million through the United Nations. What, you’re whining that America isn’t specifically giving money to the terrorist government Hamas so it can buy better rockets?.....
Here some more info on the "Peacefulness" of Pro-Hamas Supporters:

Hamas supporters use children as human shields (just like the real Hamas does):
"The pro-Hamas supporters splattered their children with fake blood and lined them up in front between them and the police. Then they attacked the police with fireworks and flying objects. The demonstration degenerated into riots, with the children in the front lines… crying."
Pro-Hamas demonstraters in Denmark want to kill ALL the Jews and give Nazi salute:
"…at a protest against Israel in downtown Calgary on the weekend, the Nazi group, the Aryan Guard, showed up to march alongside the Muslims. As Darcey at Dust My Broom notes, the 150 “anti-racists” who came out in force to protest an Aryan Guard march in downtown Calgary last year didn’t complain this time. In fact, they marched right along with the Aryans, united under the swastika: the Arabs and Communists labeling the Jewish State a “Nazi” regime; the skinheads hoping to resurrect the Real McCoy."

"Hamas themselves admitting they are cold-blooded killers:"
"Hamas intentionally placing their depots, weapons factories and launch sites among civilians and putting innocents in harm’s way as human shields, as they admit themselves:"
What is the REAL Hamas agenda???
"A former Palestinian terrorist says the West continues to pursue a failed idea that somehow terrorism against Israel will stop when the Palestinians get their own homeland....How do you negotiate with someone when they want to destroy you??
"The core issue is not an issue of land whatsoever. It's an issue of wiping the state of Israel out. If you look at even suicide bombing -- historically, if you look from 1980 until 2003, let's say -- 224 suicide bombings out of 300 existed in Islamic countries with no occupation whatsoever," he notes. "So it's not simply the desire to create a Palestinian state. It is the desire to destroy the Jewish state, and that's what we see."
Shoebat contends this effort is being carried out by a huge network of Islamic enemies. "It's a rebel network involved between Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran, Syria. Many Islamic countries are involved in this," he points out. "Saudi Arabia was funding...this kind of thing. So it's a huge network that we're dealing with."
"Hamas is openly, publicly and proudly committed to the destruction of the state of Israel. This is a negotiating partner?
“There is No Solution For the Palestinian Problem Except Through Jihad”
These are the words of the Hamas charter:
Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.
And here is how the founding document of Hamas treats the concept of “negotiations”:
"There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."...
...There are two main facts of the violence in the Middle East that all Americans -- and particularly our leaders -- should be aware of:
The first is that Hamas exists to destroy Israel. Its leaders wake up every morning with one goal -- to eliminate what they call the “Zionist entity.”
The second fact of violence in the Middle East is the ongoing effort by Iran (using Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas as its proxies) to undermine pro-American governments in the region. ...
...The policy of the United States of America has been and must be that Israel’s right to survive is unequivocal. Therefore, the greatest danger to Israel in the long run is for it to experience violence followed by a false truce which allows its enemies time to rearm and initiate yet another cycle of violence.
Iran and Hamas will not voluntarily end this cycle of violence. They must be brought to the point where they have no choice."
