Exposing the lies of Israel’s haters

“So great is the truth, that even from a lie the truth is evident” (Shmuel Yosef Agnon)


The Israeli operation in Gaza has ended over a year ago, yet the diplomatic warfare never ends. In fact, for the Anti-Israeli triangle consisting of self-hating Jews organizations, radical leftists and radical Islamists, every operation is just another excuse to launch an all-out propaganda attack against Israel. But what happens when this triangle actually tries to expose their testifiers? What happens when they actually show the truth? Quite the opposite from what you could have expected.


Most recently, the anti-Israeli organization called ‘breaking the silence’ (in short – BTS) has launched a new campaign of video clips. This time, we are actually seeing former Israeli soldiers speaking in their own voices and faces about their time in the army. As an organization funded by the EU and other European governments such as Spain, Germany, Netherlands and Great Britain (according to NGO Monitor’s special review for 2013-2014), one could have expected some professional results, yet that was not the case.


For years now, the vast majority of the Israeli population makes one simple claim against BTS: ‘If you have evidence for your stories, why won’t you expose the ones who testified? Why do you have to hide under anonymity?  Furthermore, people are asking, ‘Why haven’t you contacted the Israeli authorities about the atrocities made during your service? Why all this secrecy?’


Now we finally got the answer, and it is very simple: In their eyes, the Israeli activists of BTS were serving in the ‘PADF’ – ‘Palestinian and Animals defense forces’. They simply cannot understand why Israeli soldiers are doing their job to defend the ISRAELI population.


Sounds ridiculous? Well, that is exactly how I felt watching this video by BTS. In the clip, a former Visual intelligence and Surveillance Monitor named Yael Lotan, breaks in tears in front of the camera, explaining how IDF soldiers were shooting a sheep in the Gazan border. She tells a story about how a Gazan shepherd insisted on taking his Flock of Sheep to graze by the border. After crossing the red line, coming too close to the Israeli side of the border, the soldiers shot in the air, but he never went away so they had to shoot one of his sheep.
