Matt 24 watch, 248: IDF captures a Hamas military manual on the use of human shields . . . precisely because they know that the IDF tries to limit civilian deaths and collateral damage

A CBN news report is eye-opening viewing:

The use of human shields and hostage taking, generally, are war crimes. But then, terrorist groups that premise their strategy on attacking civilians in order to gain media exposure and spread fear that is then manipulated to create a sense of blame transfer, will have little regard for either law or human rights.

Which points to the underlying point: should such groups gain state power, they "naturally" become murderous tyrants -- carrying forward the same "winning" strategy. Which is exactly what is going on all over the Middle East. ISIS, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, the Mullahs of Iran and more fit the pattern.

And which, is exactly what the major media will not address seriously. (Where, of course, those who do report what is not on the agenda will be derided and dismissed as a lunatic fringe.)

Not to mention, those whose policy imperatives seem to be based on what they want to see in the news headlines.Spin, spin, deceitful spin on every hand, when will it end?

It is high time for us to wake up. END
