Dead Babies Are Forever

Its known that Hamas regularly puts civilians at risk as Human Shields. You can even see a lot of propaganda featuring children who hope to be martyred by Israelis. To provoke their own killing, so that they can become the next Zombie Star of the intifada.

With the recent violence between Israel and Hamas in Gaza the Pallywood propaganda machine is in full swing. With Jew haters everywhere eager to paint the Israelis as baby killers.

See this tweet from today. I'm sorry about the graphic nature of the image but its required for us to understand the degree to which anti-Israeli activists will go to incite hatred against Jews and the State of Israel.

Note the narrative in the tweet. Even stating as fact that these boys and their mother died yesterday and ad some World Cup flavor by adding that one boy was a fan of Brazil. Hey the color of his shirt matches. So talk it up, right?

The problem is that this image is from as early as Jul 3, 2011 according to Google. And many times since then with the main cluster of results being from November 2012.

Note the Jew Hater did do a correction when it was pointed out that this image is not even from Gaza but Syria, this may be one of Assad's dead babies.

Because of a comment (below) claiming this photo is from Syria and not Palestine (which I tend to agree with) Ive added the following photo from Reuters, a reputable news agency.
But note the blogger did not remove the image. Because, truthy I guess.

But it matters little because in Syria children are used in the same manner. Sent to die for the cause. Sent to die for a photo op that will be used in propaganda attacking the enemy of the day. Weather it be the US, Israel, the Assad regime in Syria.

It doesn't matter because the propaganda value of a dead baby never dies.

And images and false narratives like this one are being retweeted ad nauseum by Jew haters all over Twitter. Of course a lot of people can see through these outright lies and propaganda.

But there's a large group of folks out there willing to lie and also an even larger group willing to just believe, to pass it along as truth.

Update: BBC reports.

Graphic images are being shared on social media to show how people have been affected by the renewed tensions between Israel and the Palestinians.

Hamas has been firing rockets from Gaza into southern Israel, which has responded with airstrikes on Gaza. Several Palestinian militants have been killed and on Tuesday it was reported that at least 15 Palestinians had been injured.

Over the past week the hashtag #GazaUnderAttack has been used hundreds of thousands of times, often to distribute pictures claiming to show the effects the airstrikes.

Some of the images are of the current situation in Gaza, but a #BBCtrending analysis has found that some date as far back as 2009 and others are from conflicts in Syria and Iraq.
