Hamas (palestinian terrorist group) lies

| No Comments

Really bad propaganda. Easily found out. But, it stirs up the emotions of the low-information voters.
The kind that "elected" *Resident Biden. From Greater Than The Sword:

There are ten more of these at the site. Lies, all of them.  I remember back in the early 2000's they were claiming that the US and Israel was using Depleted Uranium for bullets and this was causing all kinds of birth defects in their children.  Bzzzzzttt!!!  WRONG.  Yes, we were using DU as it is very heavy (68% denser than lead) and has the ability to penetrate reinforced metal and concrete very well.  It is not highly radioactive - DUH... It is DEPLETED. It has some low level radioactivity but it is all 

Countercurrents had a rather poorly researched and hyperbolic article on the subject.  If you know any of the science, it makes for a fun read. Quite the word-salad. Here is one example of the photos that they used to promote their narrative (caution - not for the faint of heart). Someone tracked the photos of the infants to a German medical textbook from the 1950's that had a section on birth defects.

One of the reasons that DU is used is that once we "clear" an area, it is so benign that our own soldiers can enter the area without needing any sort of protective gear.  Again, it is depleted. What radioactivity remains is just Alpha and Beta - stopped by a layer of clothing or a half-inch of atmosphere.

The terrorists lie and as they are not very smart people (if they were, they would not be terrorists), their lies are equally stupid and transparent. Narrative and nothing more.
