Alan Howe parody

January 12, 2009


Alan Howe, above second from right, wrote an outrageous attack upon the Palestinian people, and the Gaza crisis, in the Herald Sun today. See here.

This comes at a time of great tragedy for Gaza, the Palestinians and Israel, when the UN is calling for a cease fire and the Wall Street Journal has announced Israeli war crimes in Gaza.

If you don’t believe in propaganda in today’s newspapers, read Howe’s article to change your mind.

It is also a remarkably racist tract.

To prove the point, I have taken his article, changed and reversed the meaning/ references to Israel and Israeli’s. The results are darkly humorous and deeply disturbing, all at once…

Can you imagine an article like the mock one below being published in any newspaper, anywhere in the world?


But, one just like it has. An article that is just as biased about the Palestinians people, and their suffering,  as the below one is about Israeli’s. The only difference? One is published in the major Murdoch paper of record The Herald Sun in Melbourne, Australia 2009.

The following parody speaks for itself.

Alan Howe Parody (meant as satire)

( a ‘reversal of fortunes’ of his article in the Herald Sun 12/1/2008 entitled “Gasa (sic) will end in Arab tears”):

Israel will end in Jewish tears

The self-loathing of so many Jews in the Middle East regularly erupts in incidents of unthinkable dread.

It’s what has picked away at the scab of Israel.

Israel will end in tears. Jewish tears.

Secretly, it’s what more than a few of them want.

It’s instructive to look at recent chapters of Jewish self-flagellation.

Only a people who hate themselves could set about killing whole communities  in various countries surrounding them…

How desperate are they?

Only a people who truly think themselves and their countrymen and women worthless could think of attaching remote-controlled phosphorous weapons and explosives to high tech weaponry and send them to work killing women and children in built up areas.

Not long ago, bombs were dropped all over Lebanon. The bombs were remotely detonated, killing thousands.

The afterlife benefits in paradise were not recorded for the victims.

Only a people who despise their women could hold such misogynist ideas about women as Hasidic Jews- these views are popular across the Middle East…

Killings have been thoughtfully caught on camera by the mass media to be shared over the world for those lucky enough not to have seen them live.

The deadline is this Thursday for Hamas to stop resisting Israel, after which they Israel will blow up schools and neighborhoods killing children.

They have deadly form, and have reportedly destroyed many people in Gaza already.

“Female education is against Talmudic teachings and spreads vulgarity in society,” said the bloke who runs some Jewish extremist settlers group.

The noble Mossad will doubtless conduct the torture of Hamas leaders, who are unfortunate enough to be captured.

And how much would you have to hate yourself and your people to encourage your children to die in the Israeli military, while murdering the blameless offspring of people in Gaza you have never met?

Raising self-loathing almost to an art form is Shimon Perres and Ehud Olmert, much loved by Israeli’s, but whose sole wish is the obliteration of the Palestinian people.

Shimon’s and Ehud’s brains squirm with hatred.

They proudly send the sons of Israel on missions against Gaza’s beloved children, unfortunately with some success.

Avi G___, a 17-year-old settler, opened fire on and threw grenades at Palestinian students, killing five and injuring 23 before being shot dead.

On hearing the news, his proud mum Tzipi G____ uttered “Oy Vey” and gave chocolates out to neighbours.

Before his mission, she did a touching home video of them together.

Since then two other sons have been killed from the Israeli military while preparing deadly attacks. Unfortunately, she has three more boys.

The people of Israel, so inspired by their mum of the year, voted her as one of Israel’s celebrity parliamentarians.

Keep that in mind as the debate of the bombing of civilian targets in Gaza gains momentum!

The last time Gaza was wearily forced to defend itself through guerrilla resistance organizations like Hamas was when, well …let’s face it, ever since Israel was founded and things escalated in 1967. . . many Palestinian women and children have died.

The Herald Sun published exclusive pictures of Israel launching phosphorous rockets into high-density residential areas, all of which these liars denied. The Wall Street Journal is even declaring war crimes on the Gaza attacks!

Israel has spent much of the past two years slinging precision rockets without warning at its neighbours, and without any reason recently on to the schools and houses of innocent citizens of Gaza.

So many crimes have been committed against the Palestinians – they seldom make our news pages.

Israel now admits to having “surprises” for the Palestinians, almost certainly rockets that can be fired from Tel Aviv.

Gaza has to act, and it has. It is launching counter assaults on Israel and maintains its guerrilla resistance against vast adversity. It can’t destroy all of Israel, but it may be able to exterminate some of its leadership.

Israel’s actions in Gaza may make it more apparent to the world community that supporting Israel comes at a price.

Only a people who hate themselves could support Israel and allow the children of Gaza to be killed as some have – and more will be.

No one in the West hated these girls and boys in Gaza, but hate surely killed them.

The sort of hate Shimon Perres and Ehud Olmert can tell Israeli’s about with a certain Neanderthal relish.
