It is all about lying. Few knew what a shield truth had been until it was gone.
We don’t have to go back so many years to find a painful example, in fact August 2019 gives us lots of material to deal with. Let’s look at the Hezbollah missile attack on what was claimed to be an Israeli command convoy. Hezbollah claims they hit a general.
Here is what Hezbollah did, they released a poor-quality video from miles away, showing smoke only.
Believing this was all there was, Israel announced that a missile landed “near an Israeli village” and that the IDF staged a fake rescue of wounded at an imaginary missile hit scene, just as a joke. This story was carried in the mainstream media as it was sourced to the IDF high command and directly to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. In a time of liars, these will do as well as any.
Almanar, a media organization in Lebanon, then published the real video which is also hosted at Veterans Today with commentary by Jim W. Dean. Hezbollah had gotten right up to the Israeli base, we can see the command vehicles loaded from so very close up. Then they drive down the road and it happens. We see one of two missiles fired and both hit with devastating effect.
Hezbollah’s intelligence organization, one few know rivals the Mossad, had waited for days for Israel’s top military commander to leave his headquarters. He was assassinated.
Hezbollah says they used two Russian Kornet missiles to destroy his Wolf type mine resistant command vehicle. Our sources say tehse are Iranian Dehalivieh missiles, copied from the Russian design and manufactured in Iran.
Hezbollah, of course, was retaliating against Israel for two drone assassination attacks inside Beirut only days before. Instead of reporting the truth, that Hezbollah, as shown in 2006, can defeat Israeli defenses at will, Israel chose to lie to its own people, as it always does.
Israel withholds any “bad news,” like the sinkings of two of its Dolphin submarines or the loss of planes including one shot down over Yemen.
Lies make anything possible, hiding the truth from the public for sure,
