Douglas Murray on how one truth can demolish 1000 lies

Israel National News interviewed UK author Douglas Murray, who encourages Israel's advocates around the world not to give up and keep fighting:
Although advocacy is difficult, he doesn’t see himself quitting. “I think I would do what I do even if I didn't think I was making a difference, but as it happens, I think I am. My belief has always been that one truth can puncture a thousand lies. In the age of social media, that theory is being put to the test in real-time. A lot of the media has an agenda now. That's their right. I'd like Israel to win this conflict, some of them would like Hamas to win, some of them would just like Israel to lose.”

Murray denounces the focus on Israel. “None of these newspapers covered the far greater death toll that has been going on for the last decade in Yemen and Syria. Why are they so obsessed with this one? It's their opportunity to hold on to something that gives a feeling of crisis, but they have arsonist and firefighter reversed here. Many may talk about the history of the conflict, but that only proves it more.”

[...] He believes in a simple message, powerfully projected to the world. “There's always a limit to what can be done from this country because it's a numbers game. There are multiple countries at the United Nations who wish this country seriously ill and many of them have very powerful media. That doesn't mean that the truth shouldn't continue to be put out there. The job of Israeli diplomacy is to get out the facts as fast as possible and hope that they have an impact on the world. People have to be reminded who's the aggressor here. The deaths are all on Hamas. Maybe if people realized that, there would be fewer calls for a ceasefire.”

Regarding the calls for people to witness the scenes of the massacre themselves, Murray is staunchly in favor. “I don't forget the scenes, the bodies. It is very important to see, even at this late stage, the ruins of some of these communities. Much of the world still remains pretty ignorant of the actual details of the horrors of what happened that day.”
While much of the footage from the bloodbath is graphic, it will have to be seen by adults, with the formidable question being whether certain bigoted adults will actually find it offensive and repulsive. And Murray's right that Israel must keep on trying to get the truth and facts out there for everyone to see. You can go to the article to watch the video interview as well.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
