This could possibly be the funniest thing ever.
The only reason that the AP has offices in Palestine is to shill for Israel. But Israel goes ahead and bombs them, presumably because they just weren’t shilling hard enough.
This is obviously intended to be a message to all journalists worldwide: shill harder.
An Israeli airstrike on Saturday destroyed a high-rise building that housed The Associated Press office in the Gaza Strip, despite repeated urgent calls from the news agency to the military to halt the impending attack. AP called the strike “shocking and horrifying.”
Twelve AP staffers and freelancers were working and resting in the bureau on Saturday afternoon when the Israeli military telephoned a warning, giving occupants of the building one hour to evacuate. Everyone was able to get out, grabbing a few belongings, before three heavy missiles struck the 12-story building, collapsing it into a giant cloud of dust.
Although no one was hurt, the airstrike demolished an office that was like a second home for AP journalists and marked a new chapter in the already rocky relationship between the Israeli military and the international media. Press-freedom groups condemned the attack. They accused the military, which claimed the building housed Hamas military intelligence, of trying to censor coverage of Israel’s relentless offensive against Hamas militants.
Ahead of the demolition, the AP placed urgent calls to the Israeli military, foreign minister and prime minister’s office but were either ignored or told that there was nothing to be done.
For 15 years, the AP’s top-floor office and roof terrace were a prime location for covering Israel’s conflicts with Gaza’s Hamas rulers, including wars in 2009, 2012 and 2014. The news agency’s camera offered 24-hour live shots as militants’ rockets arched toward Israel and Israeli airstrikes hammered the city and its surrounding area this week.
You can go read the full AP article on the bombing of their building – they actually shill for Israel in the article about how they themselves have just been bombed!
Gary Pruitt, the AP’s president and chief executive, gave a statement.
For some reason he had a bandaid on his nose when he gave the statement (as if he’s just had a nosejob).
The building also housed some Al-Jazeera offices, which might be why they targeted it.
Bibi responded to international inquiry about the bombing by saying, and I quote: “It was not an innocent building.”
Netanyahu: “It was not an innocent building”👍 https://t.co/jLswLcIbJn

I guess he thought there might be terror-babies in it.
Israel has a right to protect itself against terror-babies.
Netanyahu: We destroy terror towers that has terrorist activities, we also strike the residences of terrorist leaders.

What Now, Media?
We all watched as the media went completely ape over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a member of the Moslem Brotherhood who had written columns in English for the Washington Post. Khashoggi was killed by Saudi Prince Muhammed bin Salmon. Salmon is an ally of Israel, and thus generally off-limits, but the media went after him anyway. That might have mainly been about attacking Donald Trump – we will never know. We do know that Joe Biden said he would not do anything to punish Saudi Arabia for killing this guy (chopping him up), and the media kind of complained and then gave up.
What I’m certain we learned in the Khashoggi Saga is that journalists are sacred people – as long as they are not Julian Assange.
I think it’s safe to say that even though no one died, actually blowing up a press building is more extreme than assassinating a single journalist – especially given that Khashoggi, as a member (or at least de facto member) of the Moslem Brotherhood, could be framed as an enemy combatant in a larger conflict that’s bigger than his role as a journalist.
Just outright blowing up an Associated Press office is the single biggest attack on journalists, by anyone, in my lifetime. This is certainly much more extreme than vague claims that Vladimir Putin is “killing journalists.”
The question is: is there going to be any pushback on Israel for doing this, at all? Beyond the initial complaints, the statements that “this is bad,” are the journalists actually going to press the issue? Is Freedom House going to take this to the United Nations?
No. No, I don’t think Freedom House will be pressing the issue very far.
But even if the watchdog groups aren’t interested in watch-dogging, someone is going to have to complain about this war crime, right?
What about the journalists themselves? Surely, top print outlet New York Times and top TV station CNN will come out really aggressively against bombing journalists?
No, I suppose they won’t.
I don’t even expect that they will start covering the massive anti-Israel protests that are taking place in every major city.

What an incredible thing, the way these Jews have just taken over everything, then pushed this really extreme “brown people are always right and are above everyone else” agenda, then started slaughtering brown people and leveling their cities and getting away with it.
The bottom line on this AP bombing is this: if they can kill brown people and get away with it, they can just pretty much do anything – and that includes using bombs to silence journalists.
This modern system exalts mainstream journalists, sure. But not as much as it exalts brown people.
What the bombing of this AP building, and the bombing of Palestine in general should do is show people that the entire “left vs. right” dichotomy is fake. The entire story of the 21st century is actually “Jews vs. Non-Jews.”
Look at it:
- The right does nothing to stop the tranny agenda. Governors in red states are vetoing bills to stop the trannies.
- The right does nothing to stop the black agenda. Brian Kemp just abolished citizens’ arrest.
- The left does nothing to stop the bombing of Palestine.
- The left does nothing to defend journalists getting bombed.
We here at Tranny Watch are consistently on the right side of all of these issues.
I’m not a leftist, I’m not generally pro-Moslem or pro-Brown People in general, but I’ll tell you: there is no conceivable way to justify Israel slaughtering all these children, leveling everyone’s houses, and just basically genociding people who they’ve locked in an open-air prison (Gaza).
I don’t care how much you hate Moslems – this kind of asymmetry in war cannot possibly be justified. The Palestinians have literally no ability to defend themselves, and they’re just getting slaughtered by these bombs.
Medics in #Gaza are drained after several hours digging with their hands to pull alive & dead people out of the rubble until they broke down from fatigue & the horrors they saw. Those are the real heroes. #GazaUnderAttak #Palestine https://t.co/TLeXxqgD51

36 dead bodies of mostly women & children were pulled out of the rubble after several hours of digging, numbers will increase. Israel destroyed 5 buildings on the head of those families. Massacre & genocide. #Gaza #Palestine #GazaUnderAttack

And of course, as we know, neither the Republican nor Democrat establishment consistently hates Moslems, given that they advocate for war with China to save the “human rights” of Moslems.
Do you know what China is accused of doing? They’re accused of sending Moslem terrorists to reeducation camps and making them sing songs about Emperor Xi.
Which would you rather have happen to you: have your entire city leveled by bombs and your children blown to bits, or be forced to sing a song?
Meanwhile, the Uyghur Moslems in China are actually terrorists, and join ISIS in large numbers. The Hezbollah fighters Israel is bombing fight against ISIS.
Furthermore: I also think journalists should be treated like Red Cross. I don’t care if that is a leftist talking point, it’s correct: journalists should always be protected in war zones. You have to have that rule, or there is no way to know what is going on in a war.
But of course: it isn’t really a leftist agenda. It might be a leftist talking point, but as we see here, they won’t ever do anything to actually protect journalists, and when journalists get bombed all they do is say “this is not good.”
Here are some of the latest photographs from what Joe Biden has (apparently without irony) referred to as “Israeli self-defense.” Note that you probably won’t be seeing as many of these photographs now that Israel has decided to start explicitly targeting the media.
