Zionist myth #54234
“Israel single handedly defeated 5 entire advanced Arab armies, it was an incredible and miraculous victory. Israel barely survived the onslaught.”
Alright, let’s look at this in its broader historical context, because things aren’t…
The whole “earth is round not flat” thing as a major scientific discovery is a very Western-centric thing
Arab and Asian empires had mathematically proven the earth was round way before white people
Israel targets journalist offices, then accuses Hamas of using journalists as human shields.
Israel is trying desperately to get rid of international press covering its war crimes in Gaza.
I’ve already explained this. Palestinians are prevented from importing any building materials by Israel’s siege. There are still ruins from the 2008-09 war on Gaza that haven’t been rebuilt. How do you expect anyone to be able to build structures that can withstand Israeli missiles?
As for the tunnels, today Chris Gunness, spokesman for UNRWA, announced that over 100,000 Palestinians have been displaced and are taking shelter in UNRWA facilities. How are they, let alone the rest of the 1.8 million residents of Gaza supposed to take shelter in tunnels?
Tunnels that Israel is specifically targeting to destroy even.
Yeah, that too.

The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland
At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.
The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”
the crumbling myth of white supremacy. white supremacy is violent. white supremacy is destructive. white supremacy is pervasive. white supremacy kills.
Kathryn Johnston (June 26, 1914 – November 21, 2006) was an elderly Atlanta, Georgia, woman who was shot by undercover police officers in her home on Neal Street in northwest Atlanta on November 21, 2006, where she had lived for 17 years. Three officers had entered her home in what was later described as a ‘botched’ drug raid.Officers cut off burglar bars and broke down her door using a no-knock warrant. Police said Johnston fired at them and they fired in response; she fired one shot out the door over the officers’ heads and they fired 39 shots, five or six of which hit her. None of the officers was injured by her gunfire, but Johnston was killed by the officers. Police injuries were later attributed to “friendly fire” from each other’s weapons.
One of the officers planted marijuana in Johnston’s house after the shooting. Later investigations found that the paperwork stating that drugs present at Johnston’s house, which had been the basis for the raid, had been falsified. The officers later admitted to having lied when they submitted cocaine as evidence claiming that they had bought it at Johnston’s house. Three officers were tried for manslaughter and other charges surrounding falsification and were sentenced to ten, six, and five years.
She would’ve been 100 years old this year. It’s a damn shame that they didn’t get at least twenty years plus. That would’ve been the lowest possibility for anyone else. Racism was definitely one of the motives.
Ten, Six, & FIVE FUCKING YEARS; ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!!!!????
10, 6, 5.
I amazed they were given such a ‘heavy’ sentence.
When I was six years old, I was sexually harassed and assaulted by another six year old. I’m a girl, he’s a boy, and what scares me a lot is that his parents looked it as something cute and that he was just showing his affection to me. This happened in a friend’s birthday party, I was actually…
