- Does truth have no meaning to the world-case Hamas
- "Louis Brandeis, the former U.S. Supreme Count Justice who also served as a former president of the Zionist Organization of America, said: 'truth is the best disinfectant.' The truth needs to be told about Hamas's war crimes. Israel acted in an exemplary humane manner, unknown in the history of warfare, while fighting to defend innocent Israelis from Hamas's constant bombardment.Hamas's continuous designation as a foreign terrorist organization that threatens U.S. nationals' or national security;
- Hamas's stated goal of annihilating Israel and murdering every Jew;
- Hamas's deliberate targeting of innocent Israeli civilians with over 19,000 rockets and other means;
- Hamas' repeated ceasefire violations;
- Israel's protection of Gazan civilians;
- Hamas's use of civilian shields and deliberate placement of rockets and launchers in homes, schools, etc. which has led to the saying that HAMAS is an acronym for "Hiding Among Mosques, Ambulances & Schools"
- Israel's extraordinary humanitarian aid to Gaza despite Hamas' continuing attacks on Israel, and Hamas's use of aid to build terror tunnels;
- How Hamas "lies with statistics" with grossly inflated civilian casualty figures and "staged" casualty pictures, when over have the casualties are terrorists;

The need for truthful information about Hamas's war crimes and about Israel's remarkable efforts to avoid civilian casualties was underscored recently when the Foreign Press Association ("FPA") issued a formal protest "protest[ing] in the strongest terms the blatant, incessant, forceful and unorthodox methods employed by the Hamas authorities and their representatives against visiting international journalists in Gaza." The FPA noted that Hamas "harassed, threatened or questioned" foreign reporters working in Gaza. Norwegian journalist Paul Jørgensen also recently confirmed Hamas' "strict orders" not to document Hamas's violence. Moreover, the head of foreign relations in Hamas's "Information Ministry," Hamas spokeswoman Isra Al-Mudallal, even admitted on Lebanon satellite TV that Hamas interrogated and deported journalists who filmed missile launch sites if the journalists refused to change their stories.
