Unless China intervenes with some of the courage the Palestinians possess and acts like a world leader and peace broker, the Samson option and the end of humanity it implies may well be the only option left open to us all.

In addition to examining recent NATO claims that Hamas and allied groups recently engaged in the mass rape of Israeli men, women and children they captured, this article also looks at the concomitant mass arrests of Gazans by the Israeli Army, and all necessary caveats surrounding these events, which centre around the Gazans’ October 7th land, sea and air attacks on Israeli positions contiguous to Gaza.
It is first of all important to acknowledge that these meticulously planned attacks came as an almost total surprise to Israel and that Hamas itself was amazed at the scale of their successes. This latter point is important to note as Hamas subsequently acknowledged that large numbers of freelancers followed them into Israel and those freelancers also took Israelis and Asian workers hostage.
In the confusion that followed those attacks, Joe Biden and other serial NATO propagandists spread mis-information that Hamas, which we use as a shorthand for all of the various Palestinian factions involved in those attacks, beheaded scores of new-born Israeli babies.
Now, as beheading babies is not exactly kosher, Western sceptics asked why Hamas would waste time on such activities when they could be otherwise engaged taking more hostages or engaging in firefights with their Israeli enemies. It is important to note that, outside of the idiots of the Beltway, that trope died a death, thanks in very large part to the tens of millions of concerned citizens who marched in support of Palestine and of Palestinians.
That initial trope having failed, the story of the mass rape of Israeli men, women and children, whether true or false, followed. Those stories, of beheading babies and of the mass rape of non-combatants, are used as justification for what are very clearly war crimes by the Israeli Defence Forces.
Those war crimes include the Israeli Air Force strafing Israeli citizens on the day of the initial attack and being responsible, along with badly trained Israeli tank crews, for most of the fatalities on that day.
I can make that statement, as most of the collateral damage sustained that day was clearly the work of tanks and of planes and helicopters, and not the work of Hamas, who were lightly armed. Hamas, in a nutshell, could not have perpetrated those crimes.
It is again important to note, with respect to the subsequent mass arrests of Hamas suspects in Gaza, that the attackers were lightly armed, worked in small semi-autonomous groups and wore scratch military uniforms, with sneakers, for example, taking the place of army-issue boots.
That latter sartorial point is important when we look at the hundreds of male Gazans Israel rounded up and stripped to their underpants in Gaza. Why are the prisoners wearing sandals and not sneakers or some other footwear that is more “firefight-friendly”? Why, given that Hamas work in small groups, did they surrender en masse? And how come well-known Palestinian journalists have also been rounded up? And why, while we are on the subject, have so many Palestinian journalists been murdered?
Are we really to believe Israel that every last man, woman and child in Gaza is in Hamas and that we should kill the lot of them and, as graveyard humour has it, let God separate the Hamas majority from the civilian minority? Fair enough but if all of these thousands of pot-bellied men were in Hamas, how come they maintained total radio silence for the October 7th attacks? It just does not compute.
Could it be that Israel is trying to craft a false narrative to serve their own ends? Could it be that they have lied about these events, just as they have lied about much else, going at least all the way back to their imaginary Holocaust by the Irish in 1907?
On that latter point, though Israeli President Herzog, who is from pedigree “Irish” Zionist stock, argues that this war of extermination against Gaza’s Christians and Muslims is to preserve Western civilisation, such manifestations are the very worst of Western civilisation (sic).
Former practitioners of his style of civilisation include the Shankill Butchers, whose party piece was to kidnap Irish Catholics before torturing, mutilating and killing them. The importance of that example is to highlight not the murders but the needless mutilations, which is to show the criminal’s perceived racist superiority to the victim. That is precisely what the Israelis do and there are videos galore of Israelis urinating on dead Palestinians, and of New York Jews telling pro-Palestinian protesters they would like to urinate on them. President Herzog, it seems, is more in accord with the Shankill butchers and their kinky American equivalents, than he is with Beethoven, Bach, Mozart or Wagner, whose work was banned for very many years in the Israeli Reich.
If, on the other hand, Herzog is referring to fighting by the Queensbury Rules, he should just refer himself back to Sabra & Shatila or, indeed, to the Israeli War of Independence, where former Israeli soldiers boast on camera here, here and here of their war crimes, which included mass rape, crimes they still boast and laugh about in their old age.
Irrespective of whether Israel’s accusations of mass rape are externalising the internal or not, those claims must be examined, irrespective of who supports Israel in its claims and as far as practicable that time allows.
Those two caveats are inserted as the likes of Hillary Clinton have echoed these Israeli accusations. And, as Clinton is, by her own admission, a Class A war criminal, her words are worthless, except insofar as they further incriminate her.
Now, though none of that mitigates the gravity of these Israeli mass rape charges, it must be said that all police forces have a hard time of it dealing with such charges in war as in peace, and that is why they employ trained, specialist units tasked to deal with such matters.
The first thing to say in defence of Hamas (for whom I have no time because of their links to the Muslim Brotherhood, who have a track record in gang raping Syrian Christians) is that the October 7th attack was highly co-ordinated with each of their units tasked with performing specific operations. Those charged with neutralising Israeli tanks, for example, had the job of taking out the tank and killing or capturing its occupants. Much the same applies with attacking the kibbutzes: kill the guards, take some hostages and don’t loiter, except to stand and fight, but otherwise get back to safe houses in Gaza safe and sound as soon as possible.
Because the October 7th raid was more successful than Hamas could have imagined, a number of their captives, most notably some old dear in a golf cart, were publicly displayed in Gaza and, though some of the captives were publicly beaten by Gazan “civilians”, it was nothing to what Israelis mete out to Palestinians on a daily basis.
As regards the actual captives, they can, for our purposes, be divided into Israeli military and non-military, into high value prisoners and others of lesser value. The high value prisoners include, by all accounts, a major general, some other high ranking officers similarly seasoned in anti interrogation methods, some Israeli-American tank crews and some female prisoners.
These high valued prisoners would be appropriately milked for all the information they have and, if Hamas, despite their Muslim Brotherhood connections, are well disciplined, rape, as a means of interrogation, would not be a priority. As regards the others, the only reason to rape them would be to demean them, a rather pointless exercise in the circumstances.
From my point of view, therefore, I would need more evidence regarding these alleged mass rapes because I have my well-founded doubts about those making the allegations and because I cannot see how it would have served the interests of Hamas or, indeed, of the far more disciplined forces of Hezbollah and Iran, who have continued to reach out to the more civilised elements in the Muslim Brotherhood murder gang.
This is not to absolve Hamas or the general citizenry of Gaza, who have been subjected to every conceivable slander imaginable and who, given they have been subjected to an ongoing genocide since 1948, have reason aplenty to ape their Israeli overlords and not turn the other cheek.
Our Israeli friends and those allied to them do not quite see things as I do. Despite the well-reasoned points made here, the Israelis insist the masses of prisoners, accredited journalists and medics included, they stripped down to their jocks, are all leading Hamas operatives.
And though our Trotskyist friends have given a good summary of these events and of how Israel and the Americans regularly memory hole their past crimes to keep their self-serving narratives on track, like our own esteemed publication or any other credible source, it faces an uphill battle in being heard over Israel’s war drums.
Here are Mossad’s Haaretz, the Guardian, the BBC and New York Times outlets explaining at some length the extent of these mass rape crimes and the overwhelming evidence proving Hamas’ culpability. Despite all of these over-hyped comics riding to the rescue, Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, posted on X that the UN’s rampant anti-Semitism stops Israel’s claims about Hamas’ culpability being accepted at face value.
Perhaps! But, given that Cochav Elkayam Levy, who chairs Israel’s “Hamas rape” commission, palms off 2022 photos of dead Kurdish fighters as women recently raped by Hamas, more evidence is needed to determine if Hamas committed the war crimes Israel and its acolytes claim it did. The same does not apply to Israel’s own war crimes, some of which have been referred to above and all of which are generously documented across all social media platforms.
Although Cochav Elkayam Levy, Netanyahu, Clinton and Eerdan must, along with all of Israel’s, the Muslim Brotherhood’s and America’s war criminals, be held to account in the same way that those of Nazi Germany’s were, the webs of inter-twined lies they spin make arguing with them an almost futile task, as, for example, Lavrov found out when he met British imbecile Liz Truss back in February 2022 at the start of the Ukrainian war, which has since cost in excess of 1,000,000 lives, all because of NATO’s lies and false promises.
As in Ukraine, so also in Palestine. Just as Russia’s Armed Forces had to pay with their lives to decommission the web of lies and false promises NATO spun at Minsk and elsewhere, so also must Israel and its Christian Zionist minions be finally held to account in much the same manner for their own long litany of war crimes, mass rape and mass murder from 1948 to this very day included. And, though Russia in particular, seems to be a light in the darkness, Russia has no hope of moving this process forward on its own. The only country that can break the impasse and keep the Muslim Brotherhood in check at the same time, is China, working in consort with Russia and other countries that eschew Israel’s serial lying and serial war mongering.
Although they say that everything today is made in China, except courage, for which the Palestinians have the patent, whenever I have referred to either the armies of Syria or Vietnam in previous articles I have described them and them alone as heroic because they have shown exemplary courage and resilience on a par with that of the long-suffering Palestinians. But courage is not enough as it does not put food into children’s bellies.
China, in the words of John Lennon, should give peace a chance, not by smoking dope whilst sleeping in Dutch beds with Japanese chicks but by convening a series of conferences with interested stakeholders from Pakistan, Iran, Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Turkey so as to put to Israel’s warlords an offer they daren’t refuse unless they want to be wiped from the face of the earth, in which case their Samson option bluff can be called as a prelude to Israel surrendering its weapons of mass destruction. Although the threat of immediate and imminent nuclear war would concentrate Israelis’ minds considerably, it would be up to Lavrov and similar diplomats of his caliber to offer them an escape route, a way to avoid, at least in part, the justice they and the Muslim Brotherhood rapists they worked so closely with in Syria so richly deserve.
And, as for the Israeli and Palestinian victims of this crisis, though they too deserve justice, justice cannot come from within the parameters the Israeli state sets or with the lies NATO spins. Unless China intervenes with some of the courage the Palestinians possess and acts like a world leader and peace broker, the Samson option and the end of humanity it implies may well be the only option left open to us all, oppressor and oppressed alike. Not a great one, it is true, but at least it is a realistic one.
