Scoffing and skepticism coming in 3, 2, 1 ...
Owen Jones writes a political opinion column for The Guardian. He is not a news reporter but a political commentator and left-wing activist. He has no journalism training. He studied history in college.
I actually watched that wretched video. That is 10 minutes of my life I will never get back. But it is an excellent example of propaganda.
sees fit to carry his work. So is it propaganda, or a critical look at some widely-circulated stories? I was convinced by his analysis of the Hamas personnel roster that turned out to be a calendar, and by the nurse whose pristine uniform seemed to indicate she had not just finished a long shift at the Gaza hospital under siege but was an actor. I also found several other of his examples to be convincing, so I'm curious: on what basis did you dismiss these as propaganda?
And the Guardian is not endorsing an opinion just because it carries an opinion column.
There have been plenty of confirmations by actual reporters that there are Hamad tunnels under Gaza hospitals, and nobody has disputed the recent video footage of Hamas hostages being taken into Gaza hospitals. That video by Owens does nothing to dispute that, and is crazy over the top, saying Israel is internationally murdering civilians. It is Hamas who intentionally murdered 1400 Israeli civilians. The dead civilians in Gaza are the victims of being used as human shields by Hamas.
whose uniform was spotless despite working in a combat-zone hospital? The IDF isn't above misinformation/propaganda either.
Now, I watched all 3, which you apparently did not, and I didn't see any torture, nor any missing fingernails, nor did any of the 3 terrorists seem to be in any undue distress.
So how about watching the video and then tell me where I missed the missing fingernails.
They know the conditions under which those prisoners were interrogated, they know what if any pressure was put on them etc. Interrogations often result in important information being gained. Sometimes they result in false confessions etc. instead. A lot depends of whether those doing the interrogations are more interested in finding out accurate information or in developing useful propaganda for their own use.
If they want accurate useful information that dictates how interrogations proceed. Israel is either being honest about what they are learning, or they are not, but much valid intelligence comes from detained prisoners.
Whether or not you are inclined to believe what Israel reports in this instance, I will simply say that from what I can know about Hamas, it seems credible to me.
was to get the subject relaxed, give them something to eat and drink, smokes it they smoked and he would question them in a friendly tone, he said that he got more useful and accurate intelligence with his methods than his other colleagues who would resort to physical abuse and violence which would lead to false confessions more times than naught.
From looking at the 3 videos that Israel posted of the interrogations, it seems they are following this former KGB's methods.
They dont stand in front of civilians to protect them, they stand behind them to USE them.
Hamas uses them for media publicity.
Its a shame that its up to Israel to save the Palestinians from what is supposed to be their "governing authority".
You'd think some of the Arab nations would step up & offer to help. Some of the richest countries in the world. You'd think that, but no
