"The deflection argument: "We believe that the Syrian regime is focusing the world's attention on the border with Israel instead of what is happening there," said another military spokesperson."Right. Only Narwani can deflect onto irrelevant issues. Notice how devoted she is to the welfare of the Syrian people, by the way.

"It is hard to reconcile this suddenly sovereignty-conscious Israel with the nation that violates Lebanon's territorial integrity every single day in illegal overflights into sovereign Lebanese airspace -- sometimes up to a dozen times a day, over all parts of the country, in defiance of UN resolutions and warnings."
"Defend itself against what exactly? Unarmed civilians who walk over a long-peaceful armistice line into territory that is legally viewed as Syrian to enjoy a cup of coffee with old friends?"I wasn't aware that Jaffa was legally viewed as Syrian.

"One particularly determined fellow -- 28-year-old Hassan Hijazi who was galvanized by a Facebook group to join the protests -- even decided to visit his parent's old house in Jaffa"
"On Sunday, around 1,000 unarmed civilians marched to the ceasefire line between Syria and the Golan Heights to protest Israel's occupation of Arab lands following the 1967 war."What was that? Are they protesting, Ms. Narwani, or are they "going home?" Of course, neither is correct, they are invading and in the process breaking an armistice.

"Defend itself against what exactly? Unarmed civilians who walk over a long-peaceful armistice line into territory that is legally viewed as Syrian to enjoy a cup of coffee with old friends?"
"Hours later, in the worst bloodshed since the 1973 war between Israel and Syria, up to 23 civilians were dead and hundreds wounded after Israeli troops opened live fire on the protesters."This one may not be as obvious: The only place that we are getting the casualty figures from are is the Syrian state news agency, and considering the honesty of the Syrian government and news services, that isn't saying much. The Red Cross has not confirmed their numbers. But of course, Dignity Rockets saves her skepticism for the Jews and not for the mass murdering Assad regime.

"The it-wasn't-us argument: "A Syrian mine exploded, seemingly because Molotov cocktails thrown at (Israeli) forces started a bush fire which caused the explosion of the mine, a number of mines even," an Israeli army spokeswoman said -- ostensibly blaming the deaths on mines and not IDF bullets."
That's it for the hypocrisy and contradictions but Narwani still has more ridiculous lies to tell. I am going to ignore her false characterization of the protesters as innocent victims, because we all know very well by now that they are not. Check this out:
"That makes Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu no different than Libya's Muammar Gaddafi, Egypt's Hosni Mubarak, Syria's Bashar al Assad, Bahrain's Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Tunisia's Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, Yemen's Ali Abdullah Saleh -- and other autocrats still waiting their turn."Don't be silly, Ms. Narwani. Of course he is different! If he were an Arab like all of them, you would stay silent and complicit in his war crimes too! We know very well how you operate by this point. You haven't had much to say about Assad, despite the hundreds of people that he has killed, because you are an ethnocentrist who can never criticize your fellow Arabs.
"As the Palestinian nonviolence movement grows in leaps and bounds, Israelis are faced with a real dilemma: what to do in the face of unarmed protesters who are demanding rights that are backed to the hilt by international law?"Propagandists like Ms. Narwani are used to getting their own way as long as they falsify facts and use the term "international law" a lot. But there is a reason why the UN has not gotten involved in this latest clash between Jews and Arabs, and have only performed their usual "just get along" song and dance. Because these Syrians and Palestinians don't have a right to up and invade Israel (and the territory Israel holds) just because Dignity Rockets says they do. If the Palestinians really do have a right of return, which they don't, it will be resolved by politicians, not vigilantism. But let me guess: That will never be good enough for people like her.
