2+2=5

In the dystopian West, 2+2=5.

Despite all the evidence to the contrary, the Lie remains the Truth.

And this is convenient, because when the Lie is the Truth, permanent war and genocide can continue unabated.

When Westerners refuse to believe direct on-the-ground evidence about the Israeli genocide of Palestinians, then their governments can continue to supply assistance of all kinds, including 2,000 pound neighbourhood-destroying bombs.

When the international community believes that it is about self-defense or October 7 or Hamas or all of the above, the denial of reality is further reinforced.

The reality, as explained by UN Special Rapporteur on the occupied territories, Francesca Albanese, is that Western-supported Israel seeks “to rid Palestine of Palestinians in defiance of International Law, and the world’s failure to call Israel to account that has led to genocide laid bare in Gaza.” (1)

And what does she mean by “genocide laid bare”?  A recent report by  Palestinian journalist Bisan Owda, in Gaza, lays bare the on-going genocide with the example of Zionists evacuating areas in the East and North, herding them to the South and West, only to bomb them in Western areas where they had been relocated.

 

As long as reality is denied, and 2+2 =5, Western-supported Israel’s exceptionalism, its impunity, its war crimes, and its genocide will continue unabated.
