While terrorist attacks perpetrated in Western space have always been the subject of massive condemnation throughout the world, those perpetrated in non-Western territories are celebrated (the perpetrators welcomed as heroes) in the West, where they pass under silence absolute Western media. The Crocus City Hall attacks on March 22, 2024 in the suburbs of Moscow in Russia are a perfect illustration of this. Perpetrated two weeks after the alert was given by the American Embassy in Moscow…

This has not just shown the hypocrisy of the Western Powers with their constant policy of double standards…

The Lebanese Army has suffered the least casualties despite repeated attacks by the IDF. Israeli casualties are often overlooked…

In the military conflict in Gaza, where the number of casualties among Palestinians (almost 23,000 deaths) is growing due to extreme attacks of the Israeli Army, new bloody operations and new losses cease to be a surprise.

Israel denotes Iran its main military enemy, because it is Tehran that indirectly creates additional military threat for Israelis and their allies through its Shiite proxy forces, such as Lebanese Hezbollah, Yemen’s Houthis, Syrian and Iraqi militias…
