Lies That Don't Surprise

In an important news report on Arutz Sheva - Israel National News, correspondent Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu reveals the latest lie our government - including its "military wing" - is trying to sell the public ahead of upcoming national elections.

Excerpts from the report:
IDF Chief of Staff Dan Halutz said Thursday terrorism has gone down since the expulsion and withdrawal from Gaza and northern Samaria, but statistics on suicide bombings show the opposite.

In an interview, Halutz said, "the level of terror has gone down significantly." He also advised to take recent terrorist attacks in proportion and not to interpret every "sound" as "noise." Halutz stated, "Pay attention to how many attacks there were [before the expulsion and withdrawal] and how many there are now."

Statistics show that terrorism actually has increased and has not decreased. Suicide bombers struck six times in 2005, twice before the expulsion of Jewish residents from the Gaza and northern Samarian regions and four times afterwards.


The number of rockets and mortar shells on Israeli targets has sharply increased since the expulsion, with 130 attacks from January through July, the eve of the expulsion, and 179 since then.
Considering that all of the leading security officials in the Israeli military and intelligence communities who expressed reservations about Ariel Sharon's Gaza-Samaria Disengagement Plan were "let go" ahead of the plan's implementation, is this deliberate misinformation really a surprise?
