Hamas hides in, under and around Gaza’s main hospital, and the media covers it up (Video)
Was a Finnish reporter the only one to have seen rockets fired from close to Al-Shifa, or is she the only one brave and honest enough to tell about it?
There have been reports for years that Hamas uses the main hospital in Gaza, Al-Shifa, as a headquarters.
It reportedly has bunkers underneath, and uses the hospital itself.
There have been tidbits of media reporting on Hamas’ use of Al-Shifa as a de facto headquarters for Hamas leaders, who can be seen in the hallways and offices.
But mostly it has been covered up by reporters in Gaza, as I detailed in Media cover-up of Hamas crimes starting to unravel. Tweets have been deleted and articles taken down by reporters for major publications.
One Italian reporter who left Gaza blew the whistle on the fact that it was Hamas or Islamic Jihad misfired rockets that cause a large number of deaths in a refugee camps. The victims were transported to Al-Shifa, where another rocket had already hit. A Wall Street Journal reporter tweeted, then deleted, his observation that it was a Hamas rocket that hit the hospital.
Once the evidence became clear that Israel was not responsible, the media moved on, as if it never happened.
The media has a narrative it wants to tell, and that narrative does not include the deaths, injuries and damage Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and others are causing.
Here is a good example of how the media played up an Israeli missile striking near Western reporters:

While ignoring that Hamas had fired rockets from either the same or similar area:

I see this pattern all day long on Twitter.
If you don’t think the international media is anti-Israel, then you aren’t paying attention.
But one brave Finnish reporter told it as it was, exposing how rockets are fired from close to al-Shifa:
I check the translation in the video captions with a native Finnish speaker, and the text is basically right, although there are some nuances that don’t change the overall point:
I assume you want to get it as accurate as you can so:
It should be more like:
Also, a rocket attack was conducted from the “backyard” of the hospital at 2 o’clock in the morning. It (the rocket launch), in fact, happened somewhere close by because the noise right here at the hospital area was really loud. Indeed, these rockets launched here from the Gazan side (of the border) are headed into Israel.
– There is not even a sliver of indication of a parking lot. As long as the viewers don’t think that she is stating strong facts that she is confident that it actually happened from the hospital premises.
– When the caption goes “really” & “it’s true” – that is plain wrong. These sentences begin with either a filler verb that basically would state the obvious: These rockets launched here from the Gazan side DO head into Israel. The other option is that she is using filler words such as “indeed” “in fact”.
How do you deal with such an enemy that hides in, under and around hospitals as part of a deliberate human shield strategy?
And equally important, how does the media ignore it?
Is this Finnish reporter the only one to have seen rockets fired from close to al-Shifa, or is she the only one brave and honest enough to tell about it?

different day , same Chit ! Hamas. Warriors of the Chicken Chit tribe . passed down generation to generation .
The reason it isn’t reported is that Hamas threatens anyone who reports it, and they take the threats seriously.
The first guy who reported it waited until he was out of the region for fear of reprisals.
But this has been going on for years. Hamas gunmen roam the lower floors – guarding the offices in the hospital which Hamas uses, as well as the entries to the basement area – but no photos are allowed.
Remember CNN already admitted covering up some of Saddam’s crimes against humanity to keep good will with the regime and their reporters on the ground there. Same deal here – Hamas makes it easier to comply with their death threats.
If you’ve had any illusions about international news media being dedicated to truthful reporting, this should dispel them.
Who, other than a liberal, would still argue that liberalism isn’t a mental disorder?
Somebody actually interested in winning the Senate, keeping the House, and getting the Presidency out of Democratic hands.
Insulting the people you want to vote for you is a bad way to start a conversation.
An honest UN would prevent and conduct inspections of hospitals, clinics, schools, police stations, etc. and Palestinian government would allow periodic inspections and would stop rocket fire and not build tunnels into Israel.
The fact remains, Islamists want the Jewish homeland for themselves.
Jewish Palestine is all land east of the Jordan river) for themselves.
Jordan is Arab Palestine. All other land has been either taken by force by Islamists or ceded to Islamists for peace by Israel.
Since there has been no peace since 1922 despite numerous treaties, Gaza and West Bank should revert back to Israel.
