Israeli Hasbara Hides Shoot To Maim Policy in Gaza

10Dec

Israel has perfected Hasbara, "a form of propaganda aimed at an international audience...It is meant to influence the conversation in a way that positively portrays Israeli political moves and policies, including actions undertaken by Israel in the past. Often, Hasbara efforts include a negative portrayal of the Arabs and especially of Palestinians" (+972 Magazine). Chris Hedges on the RT program, "On Contact" talks to journalist and filmmaker Abby Martin and producer Mike Prysner about their new film Gaza Fights for Freedom which focuses on the Palestinian Great March of Return protests during which nearly 200 people were killed and 10,000 men, women and children were wounded ("approximately 1,200 patients will require long-term limb reconstruction"). Revealed in the documentary is the use of frangible or"exploding" bullets by the Israeli Defense Force that magnifies the damage done by a bullet wound.
