“It is not only astonishing that Israel and its allies have utilized virtually every propaganda twist and lie to portray genocide as a ‘just’ war of self-defense, but also that they have every confidence that the public will be repeatedly deceived. ‘Buying time’ to accomplish the destruction of Gaza is the ultimate objective of the deception campaign, as stated by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in October 2023. The vaunted Israeli hasbara (official narrative-spinning) borrows from the well-tested and widely applied Euro-American colonial discourse to dehumanize the Palestinians. Palestine is entwined with the broader struggle against colonial structures, ethics, and knowledge that has for decades licensed and abetted exploitation and eliminatory violence against colonized nations.” (05/29/24)
