RT Fanning The Flames Using Palestinian Issue For Divisiveness


RT: ‘Boycott Israel’: Thousands march in Paris in pro-Palestinian rally. Protesters … In reality, it was only several hundred.

RT broadcast pro-Palestinian protests in Paris, saying:

I’m not quite sure I’d call the several dozen, perhaps 100 people present as “massive”, but you get the point.

This is yet another example of RT sowing divisiveness wherever possible.  If I were a betting man, I would say that the Russian Embassy in Paris is funding this demonstration.

The times of Israel said “Hundreds of pro-Palestinian demonstrators call to boycott Israel; PM scheduled to meet with Macron on Sunday; protests, too, in Rome, Istanbul”.  This is still not “massive”.

Not to be confused, but there are other protests in Paris at the same time about separate issues: Basque protesters in Paris demand ETA prisoner rights | News | DW | 09.12.2017
