Fateh’s Reformist Democratic Faction expresses profound sorrow and anguish over the heart-wrenching tragedy that is unfolding in Gaza as a result of the Israeli pogrom in the besieged Strip. The loss of more than 5500 Palestinian civilians so far, nearly half of them children, due to Israeli air and artillery strikes on residential neighborhoods, schools, hospitals, and shelters, stands as an indelible scar on the conscience of humanity.
Dimitri Diliani, Fateh’s Reformist Democratic Faction’s Spokesperson, states in his criticism of mainstream media’s complicity in covering up Israel’s war crimes against Palestinian civilians by saying: “The warmongering mainstream media, especially in the U.S., funded by mega corporations with ties to the weapons industry, have played a pernicious role in creating a national mood for war. Through the perpetuation of racial tropes and invocations of savagery, they have shamelessly upheld a narrative that is nothing short of barbaric.”
Diliani continues, drawing parallels with the U.S. mainstream media’s warmongering infrastructure established during the George w. Bush era. “The media machinery, reminiscent of the ‘war on terror,’ has now orchestrated a twisted sense that trivializes the suffering of Palestinian children. It attempts to normalize the unspeakable, suggesting that Israeli genocide against innocent children is somehow permissible, and that the bloodbath Israel commits is the fault of those who are the victims of this Israeli carnage.”
Fateh’s Reformist Democratic Faction extends its heartfelt gratitude to individuals and organizations that have championed the cause of reason and justice amidst the Biden Administration’s blind implicit support for Israeli war crimes in Gaza. “We salute the voices of reason from all walks of life,” Diliani affirmed. “Figures such as Dave Chappelle, Cenk Uygur, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Josh Paul, Mustaza Hussein, Naha Dakhil, and the 411 congress staffers who have courageously stood against the tide of injustice and inhumane support for Israeli atrocities, are a beacon of hope.”
Fateh’s Reformist Democratic Faction pays tribute to the many nameless heroes who have sacrificed and continue to sacrifice for their unwavering commitment to stand against the Israeli pogrom against innocent children. The world must not forget the magnitude of this tragedy and the lives forever scarred by Israeli appalling war crimes.
