Elie Wiesel blames the victims | World War 4 Report

In his penultimate paragraph, Wiesel writes: “And I enjoin the American public to stand firmly with the people of Israel who are in yet another struggle for survival, and with the suffering people of Gaza who reject terror and embrace peace.” Note the subtlety of the propaganda. We are admonished to stand with “the people of Israel” presumably, all of them, who are engaged in a “struggle for survival.” Whereas, we are told to stand with “the suffering people of Gaza who reject terror and embrace peace”—this after a lecture about the Gazans using their children as “shields.” So presumably, we are only to “stand with” those Gazans who reject their own leaders. No such conditions are placed on the Israeli side—on the contrary, the Israeli war is legitimized as a “struggle for survival.” There is no acknowledgement of a “struggle for survival” in Gaza—with over 1,500 dead, 200,000 displaced, whole neighborhoods reduced to rubble, and thousands without water or electricity.
