Why Israel Lies - Chris Hedges

This is the indubitable, irrefutable, indisputable, incontestable Chris Hedges, and this is about the most extraordinary thing he has ever published:

But Israel engages in the kinds of jaw-dropping lies that characterize despotic and totalitarian regimes. It does not deform the truth; it inverts it. It routinely paints a picture for the outside world that is diametrically opposed to reality. And all of us reporters who have covered the occupied territories have run into Israel’s Alice-in-Wonderland narratives, which we dutifully insert into our stories—required under the rules of American journalism—although we know they are untrue.
