Mainstreaming Antisemitic Libels
Inevitably, whenever Israel takes action to protect themselves against openly genocidal Arab terror gangs, the accusations start bubbling up from antisemitic sewers that Israel is using diabolical weapons never seen before by mankind, evil chemicals that cause bizarre mutations and/or mysterious wounds. The hate-warped thinking here is that ordinary weapons just aren’t evil and sadistic enough for the International Zionist Conspiracy, so they must be using horrible banned gases and chemicals to cause maximum pain to innocent Arabs. It’s antisemitic libel in its purest form, deranged and dangerous.
Usually these accusations remain in the sewers where they belong.
But this time, Agence France Presse chooses to legitimize them: Mysterious wounds from Israeli shells in Gaza.

Confederate Yankee points out that these are recycled lies, used against the US military in Fallujah, now employed against Israel in Lebanon.
