Israeli Policeman blows the whistle on non-involvement of Hamas leadership in the killing of the three Israelis. – Tim Veater
If the following reports are reliable, it confirms my earlier suspicion – and validates my suggestion of it in an earlier piece here.
Not only was the kidnap of three Israeli young men not connected to the Hamas leadership, the fact that it was seized on immediately by the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and blamed on them in the most inflammatory language, is suggestive of a much deeper and disreputable involvement.
The event of course was used as an excuse for a major intimidatory “security” exercise against the West Bank civilian population in which many were arrested and at least one killed. It was also, the precursor and partial justification for the brutal Gaza invasion that we are still witnessing.
The fact that such a military operation takes months of planning and is never ad hoc, inevitably infers the whole thing was planned in advance.
It is one thing to jump to conclusions and blame the wrong organisation or person but quite another to organise the murder of three people to provide a pretext for a long-planned-for military invasion. Tellingly the Israeli detective is quoted as saying, “If it had been planned by the Hamas leadership, we would have known about it.”
By way of consolation, he suggests it was probably a “Hamas-related” cell. Equally it might have been a Mossad related cell or others working on their behalf I would suggest. Given the way the incident was used as political propaganda to incite revenge, this is far from implausible. It’s the way intelligence agencies, at least some of them, work.
And then note the parallels with the downing of MH17 (if indeed it was!):
The way in which , the culprits were announced before anyone could possibly know, which subsequently proves false.
Similar inflammatory language by the political leaders.
America jumping on the partisan bandwagon and calling for action or not opposing it.
In the case of Ukraine the occupation of Crimea and violent conflict, as with Gaza.
Both events happening within minutes of one another.
Israel and America implicated in the disappearance of MH370, an identical Boeing at Tel Aviv and now the startling claim by Jim Stone that the Ukrainian crash plane WAS MH370 based upon incontrovertible differences to the fuselage window configuration.
A final parallel is that both in the case of the three Israeli deaths and the shooting down of MH17 (?) the accusers are backing down or backing away. I am surely not the only one who believes the two events were part and parcel of a coordinated black ops?
No doubt before long we shall have one of those formulaic and insincere apologies from both Obama and Netanyahu. “It was all a big mistake.” “We got our wires crossed.” “These things happen.” “We’ll have an inquiry.” “We’ll compensate the affected parties.” “We won’t do it again.” Promises. Promises. With which they will continue just as they did before and as they intended all along. END.

The Daily Star Lebanon Jul. 26, 2014 | 12:27 PM “BEIRUT: The Israeli Police Foreign Press Spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld, appears to have falsified the Israeli government’s claim that Hamas was responsible for the killing of three Israeli settler teens in June, by saying responsibility lies with a lone cell that operated without the complicity of Hamas’ leadership.
The kidnapping and subsequent killing of three Israeli settler teens last month is considered to be a flashpoint for the escalated violence in Gaza — that as of day 19 of the conflict has left 926 Palestinians, mostly civilians, dead.
At the time Israeli authorities placed the blame squarely on Hamas, with Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu saying “They were kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by animals in human form. Hamas is responsible and Hamas will pay.”
Friday however, there appeared to be break in the official line when BBC journalist Jon Donnison tweeted a series of statements he attributed to the Israeli Police Foreign Press Spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld.
“Israeli police MickeyRosenfeld tells me men who killed 3 Israeli teens def[initely] lone cell, Hamas affiliated but not operating under leadership1/2.”
“Seems to contradict the line from Netanyahu government. 2/2”
The journalist then goes on to tweet a further statement from Rosenfeld which, given that Israeli authorities used Hamas’ culpability as a pretext for its crackdown of the West Bank that saw hundreds of Palestinians arrested and several killed, could cast serious doubts on the Israeli government’s justifications.
“Israeli police spokes Mickey Rosenfeld also said if kidnapping had been ordered by Hamas leadership, they’d have known about it in advance.””
