Jonathan Cook: the View from Nazareth -

Israel and its allies are repurposing the goals and lies of 1948 – in Gaza in 2023

Israel is openly carrying out ethnic cleansing in Gaza. Yet, just as happened with the first Nakba in 1948, Israel’s lies and deceptions dominate the West’s media and political narrative.

Israel is on the rampage again and Gaza’s population is facing a quiet, slow path to erasure. The ones funding it and enabling it are the US and its European allies.

The West’s hypocrisy towards Gaza’s breakout is stomach-turning
