Now I’m “truther pondlife”!
July 26, 2014 by Thomas Wictor
My posts on Pallywood are making lots of people angry. Today an angry Irishman told me I’m “truther pondlife.” I’ve never actually heard the term “pondlife” used as an insult, and it’s funny to hear the “truther” being used to denigrate those who actually are telling the truth. The word originated in the “9/11 truth movement,” which was the dumbest conspiracy ever conceived.
You don’t have to know anything about physics, the melting point of steel, controlled demolition, etc. Just ask yourself this: How did the Republican administration of George W. Bush convince all the Democratic investigators of the New York Police Department, the New York Fire Department, and the Port Authority to cover up the murder of hundreds of their colleagues? The “9/11 truth movement” is monumental character assassination of every Democratic New Yorker who tried to solve the crimes committed on September 11, 2001.
Here’s what the angry Irishman said to me on Twitter.
When I wrote my post about the deaths of Mohammed Bakr, Ahed Bakr, Zakaria Bakr, and Mohammed Bakr, I didn’t know that the Israeli Defense Forces had taken responsibility. They seem to have done so only on Australian television, which I don’t watch. However, the larger point stands, that the media can’t be relied on. Most reports are that Israeli “gunboats” shelled the beach. I knew that wasn’t the case.
The angry Irishman and even people who aren’t angry at me assume that my posts are meant to deny Palestinian suffering and absolve the IDF of all wrongdoing. In reality, my posts are intended to expose lies that endanger everyone in the region. I’ll get to that later.
So how did the Israelis accidentally kill four children, thinking they were Hamas terrorists? The answer is, “It happens.” The four boys were apparently killed in a missile strike. The way that works is you have the armed aircraft in the area, a drone in the area relaying real-time video back to a command center, and a forward air controller (FAC). The FAC is trained to direct close-air support (CAS) missions and can be on the ground or airborne in a helicopter or aircraft.
The FAC coordinates with the commander watching the video and the pilot carrying out the attack. At Gaza it was four children who had no means of communicating that they were civilians. Even when the FAC, the commander, the pilot, and nearby troops are all in communication, mistakes are made.
In that video an American A-10 Warthog almost killed British soldiers, even though the British had identified themselves multiple times. War is a dangerous, ugly, destructive thing. That’s why we shouldn’t have them. But sometimes the price of not going to war is higher than the price of going to war.
Hamas was apparently a few months away from conducting a mass attack on Israeli civilians during the upcoming Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashana, on September 24. The raid would have been like something out of a movie: hundreds of heavily-armed Hamas fighters would have emerged from over a dozen underground tunnels in the dead of night, jogged 10 minutes to their targets, and then infiltrated a set of lightly-populated and lightly-guarded Israeli communities. Casualties could have reached the thousands, and some of the victims would have been taken back alive as hostages.
The Israeli response is terrifying to consider. Israel laid waste to Lebanon for kidnapping only two soldiers. The Palestinians need to thank their God that this plan was exposed and stopped.
I get lots of messages from people upset that I’ve exposed Palestinian fakery.
Normally I wouldn’t do this, but here’s the link I sent to Sameer Sidique. DO NOT OPEN IT unless you’re prepared to see the demonic butchery and smug sadism of the terrorists fighting in Syria. These are photos of beheadings, impalement, and happy, smiling monsters who no longer have souls.
It could be that most people simply don’t know what they’re talking about. According to a recent Gallup poll, the closer Americans follow Operation Protective Edge, the more they support Israel’s actions.
Also, the more educated Americans are, the more they support Israel’s actions.
This doesn’t hold true for non-Americans. The angry Irishman, for example, sent me the dumbest tweet I’ve ever seen, yet I’m sure he has a college education.
The Gaza Strip is 139 square miles (360 square kilometers) with a population of 1.8 million. The Israelis have launched well over 5000 attacks. They’ve destroyed massive weapons depots and have engaged in house-to-house fighting in order to find tunnel entrances. Military operations on urban terrain (MOUT) is the most dangerous for civilians. The nine-day First Battle of Grozny (December 31, 1994 to February 8, 1995) in Chechnya killed 35,000 civilians.
It’s not possible to accept the Palestinian casualty figures at face value, but Israel says it has killed over 200 Hamas operatives. Even if we accept the Palestinians figures of about 800 dead, you can see that the ratio of dead to military activity is very small. “Civilians are being indiscriminately slaughtered in Gaza”? Only an idiot would say that.
You know where civilians are being indiscriminately slaughtered? In Syria. But the angry Irishman doesn’t care. Wonder why? Could it be that J-E-W-S aren’t involved?
He asked me how I could sleep after exposing Palestinian fakery. Actually, when I go to sleep, I’m not thinking about Palestinians. But just to piss him off, here’s more obvious, blatant, cheap, crummy Pallywood. First watch the whole thing, which shows the Israeli “knock on the roof” method of warning people to leave a building. The knock is in the form of a small mortar round. This video purports to show that the Israelis don’t actually give people time to evacuate.
Now, see this little deal on the right of the screen, marked by the red arrow?
Click that, and the video go full screen. To go get out of full-screen mode, press the “esc” on your keyboard.
This video was faked by editing out at least twenty minutes between the “knock on the roof” and the destruction of the building. The edit takes place between the :20 and :21 marks.
At the :20 mark, you see smoke coming from the roof of the building. You can also see a shadow to the left of the red chyron with “F-16” in it.
At the :21 mark, the smoke from the roof is gone, and the shadow has changed position.
Watch the video in full-screen mode, and keep your eye first on the shadow in the lower left and then on the roof smoke. Also, the green towel hanging from the balcony morphs into another shape.
To everybody bitching, “They didn’t give them enough time to get out!” I have one question: Why do you think there’s a stationary camera perfectly placed to capture the collapse of the building? It’s because the Israelis phoned them first and told them what was going to happen.
People are so angry that they’re also sending me fake quotes, such as this one.
We do not want to and we do not have to expel Arabs and take their place. All of our ambitions are built on the assumption that has proven true throughout all of our activities in the land [of Israel] — that there is enough room for us and for the Arabs in the land [of Israel]. And if we will have to use force, not for the sake of evicting the Arabs of the Negev or Transjordan, but rather in order to secure the right that belongs to us to settle there, force will be available to us.
Sameer Sidique—the proud Indian—tweeted his best wishes.
When I die, I hope to come back as pondlife. Specifically the tardigrade or water bear. They’re invulnerable, able to survive temperatures from −459.67° F (-213.15° C) to over 212° F (99.98° C), pressures of 95,000 psi (6679 kg per square cm), ionizing radiation over a thousand times higher than the lethal dose for humans, and the vacuum of outer space. They can go without food or water for more than a decade by drying out, but when they rehydrate, they’re good to go.
And they look great.
So here’s hoping, Sameer and angry Irishman!
