Here’s a sample of the media’s shameless war propaganda about the death of Hamza al-Dahdouh: the son of Al Jazeera’s Gaza bureau chief.

(The child in question was a 27-year-old terrorist.)
Secretary of State Blinked mourned him.
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken called it an “unimaginable tragedy” on Sunday in Qatar.
“I am a parent myself, I can’t begin to imagine the horror that he has experienced, not once, but now twice. This is an unimaginable tragedy and that’s also been the case for far too many innocent Palestinian men, women, children,” said the top American diplomat, who was scheduled to arrive in Israel on Monday.
The media showed little interest in Israel’s explanation of how Hamza al-Dahdouh met his virgins.
The IDF told AFP that it “struck a terrorist who operated an aircraft that posed a threat to IDF troops”, adding that it was “aware of the reports that during the strike, two other suspects who were in the same vehicle as the terrorist were also hit.”
There are more details now.
IDF Chief Spokesman Brig. Gen. Daniel Hagari on Wednesday night presented evidence to prove that two Gazan journalists killed by the IDF on Sunday were terrorists.
Regarding Hamza Al-Dahdouh, the son of Al Jazeera’s chief correspondent in Gaza, Wael Al-Dahdouh, Hagari said that Israeli forces had found Islamic Jihad internal documents in their various command centers in Gaza proving he was part of their terror ranks.
The IDF presented a copy of the document in Arabic, which it said listed Hamza as a dual-hat terrorist-journalist for Islamic Jihad.
Documents also said that Hamza had previously served as a terrorist battalion leader for the Zeitoun area of northern Gaza and that he was still currently responsible for firing Islamic Jihad rockets in that area.
Hagari said that similar documents were found by Israeli forces in Hamas command centers linking the other journalist, Mustafa Thuraya, to Hamas.
He said the documents said that Thuraya was a deputy chief of a terror cell.
Further, Hagari said that both had been involved in activating drones which caused danger to Israeli forces and which led to the air strike against them.
Expect the media to disregard this latest piece of evidence while maintaining the myth of Gaza’s “martyred journalists.”
The reality is that Gaza doesn’t have journalists. It’s a territory run by Hamas. Anyone who operates there does so under the aegis of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other terrorist groups.
This is what a “Gaza journalist” looks like. (This is not either of the two men mentioned in the article.)
Reuters reporter is incredibly excited on October 7— describing “Gaza guys” breaching the border with Israel, stealing whatever property they want, kidnapping women and soldiers to Gaza. He said he saw at least 50 women taken.
