Film Review:
Gaza Fights for Freedom

The Gaza border riots that began in 2018 have resulted in horrific tragedy for innocent Palestinians caught between terrorist groups and the IDF. "Gaza Fights for Freedom" does no justice to the victims or anyone who seeks a genuine understanding of the conflict.

The film promotes Pro-Hamas propaganda:

Also Mahmoud al-Zahar: "We are no weaker or less honourable than the peoples that expelled and annihilated the Jews. The day we expel them is drawing near... you have no future among the nations of the world."

and Osama Bin Laden's conspiracy theories:

The above image is used to claim Israel wants to take over the Middle East. Similarly, Osama Bin Laden falsely accused, "the Jews in Palestine," of seeking, "full control over the Arab Peninsula which they intend to make an important part of the so called Greater Israel."

The filmmaker has spread 9/11 conspiracy theories and vicious hatred against Israelis:

"There is no hope from within Israel, it's a racist society where genocidal blood lust is the norm" - Abby Martin

These are just a few of the many ways the film misleads viewers:

1. It claims the Gaza border riots have been peaceful. In fact:


  • Terrorists have been documented using civilians as cover to plant and hurl explosives, fire guns at Israelis, and break through a border that is walking distance from where Israeli families live.


  • At the riots, Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar threatened to “take down the border [with Israel]” and “tear out their hearts from their bodies.” 


  • Mahmoud al-Zahar said, “When we talk about ‘peaceful resistance,’ we are deceiving the public. This is a peaceful resistance bolstered by a military force”.


  • After the violence on May 14th, 2018, a Hamas leader proudly announced that 50 of the 62 people killed were Hamas operatives. Another three were identified as Islamic Jihad members.


2. The conclusion focuses on Palestinian medic Razan al-Najjar, portraying her tragic death as a cold-blooded murder by Israel. In fact, an NYT investigation found that Israeli troops were not aiming at her. Rather, she was killed by a piece of a bullet after it hit the ground.


3. The film slanders Israel, claiming it restricts Gaza's food supply. In fact, Israel facilitates the delivery of hundreds of tons of food and other goods into Gaza every single day.


The people of Gaza are suffering immensely from the rule of Hamas and its conflict with Israel. Playing defense for terrorists, dehumanizing Israelis, and spreading misinformation does nothing to change this unacceptable status quo.
