In response to the massacre in Gaza, the Zionist Federation of New Zealand has posted Israeli government propaganda videos to its Facebook page that claim the 'casualties' are all the fault of Hamas.
NO MATTER WHAT ATROCITY Israel commits, it is sure to get the seal of approval from the orange man sitting in the White House. While the Israel military indiscriminately mowed down Palestinians in Gaza, Trump tweeted " Big day for Israel. Congratulations."
While daughter Ivanka Trump and hubby Jared Kushner were rubbing shoulders with the Israeli Prime Minister at the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, the Israeli military assault had left over 50 Palestinians dead and over 2000 injured. A correspondent for Democracy Now reported that the Israeli military were dropping tear gas on Palestinians from drones and firing fragmentation bullets that break apart on impact. They were leaving exit wounds as large as a fist.

These casualties are on top of a further 41 killed and over 9000 injured over recent weeks.
Amnesty International says the violence is "another horrific example of the Israeli military using excessive force and live ammunition in a totally deplorable way. This is a violation of international standards, in some instances committing what appear to be wilful killings constituting war crimes."
None of this violence though troubles the Zionist Federation of New Zealand. Its response has been to post propaganda videos from the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. They claim that the Palestinian 'casualties' are ' the sole responsibility of Hamas, the organizer and initiator of the mass campaign to sabotage the Israel-Gaza fence and storm into Israel."
In December the Zionist Federation of New Zealand claimed that singer Lorde could of 'promoted peace' by going ahead with a scheduled concert in Tel Aviv in June this year.
President Rob Berg declared: “You can absolutely be pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian. Many people now are.”
