Wikipedia defines False-Flag:
A false flag operation is an act committed with the intent of disguising the actual source of responsibility and pinning blame on another party. The term "false flag" originated in the 16th century as an expression meaning an intentional misrepresentation of someone's allegiance. The term was famously used to describe a ruse in naval warfare whereby a vessel flew the flag of a neutral or enemy country in order to hide its true identity. The tactic was originally used by pirates and privateers to deceive other ships into allowing them to move closer before attacking them. It later was deemed an acceptable practice during naval warfare according to international maritime laws, provided the attacking vessel displayed its true flag once an attack had begun.
However, the Anti-Defamation League, a very pro-Israel organization defines a False Flag as:
False flag is a term used by conspiracy theorists to suggest that various world events and crises, such as terrorist attacks and mass shootings, were actually orchestrated by governments or sinister forces in furtherance of a political or social goal, such as gun control or sowing public fear. Historically, the term has been used to refer to a military or political operation carried out with the intention of blaming an opponent for it, often as a pretext for going to war.
It is important to know that ADL's definition of False-Flag appears as the second link after Wikipedia's. ADL wants to stay on top of Search Engine Optimization to remind you that anyone who believes in False Flag is most certainly a loony-right-wing- conspiracy theorist :)
It's certainly not just ADL that wants to downplay certain false-flag-ish content. Facebook's Transparency Center promises to:
"...remove content that is likely to directly contribute to interference with the functioning of political processes and certain highly deceptive manipulated media."
YouTube in 2020 changed its algorithm to silence certain content.
The YouTube algorithm that had previously recommended other conspiracies was now more often pushing mainstream videos posted by CBS, ABC, or Jimmy Kimmel Live, including ones that debunked or mocked conspiracist ideas. YouTube wasn't deleting Sargent's content, but it was no longer boosting it. And when attention is currency, that's nearly the same thing.
So essentially, if it's YouTube or Facebook deciding what information is important to be presented to the public and what to be suppressed in a feed, it's for the public's own good. However, if it's China, Russia, or North Korea that does it, it's called Censorship!
In 1954, Israel conducted the Lavon Affair:
The Lavon affair was a failed Israeli covert operation, codenamed Operation Susannah, conducted in Egypt in the summer of 1954. As part of a false flag operation, a group of Egyptian Jews were recruited by Israeli military intelligence to plant bombs inside Egyptian-, American-, and British-owned civilian targets: cinemas, libraries, and American educational centers. The bombs were timed to detonate several hours after closing time. The attacks were to be blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood, Egyptian communists, "unspecified malcontents", or "local nationalists" with the aim of creating a climate of sufficient violence and instability to induce the British government to retain its occupying troops in Egypt's Suez Canal zone.
In 1967, Israel attacked the USS Liberty, an American ship during Israel's 6-day war with the Arab States.
Although the United States was not involved in the conflict, the ship was attacked and nearly sunk by Israeli forces, killing 34 American sailors. Officially it was a case of accidental friendly fire, for which Israel accepted full responsibility and paid reparations; but many, to this day, consider that it was a false flag attack, and that the Americans and Israel conspired to stage the attack for some hidden purpose.......Because Israeli forces are the ones who attacked the ship, and because of the tenuous and divisive nature of the United States' political relationship with Israel, official accounts of the episode tend to walk on eggshells. If you point the finger at Israel, you get called anti-Semitic. If you diplomatically omit any mention of who attacked the Liberty, you get accused of covering it up. Survivors of the Liberty often express frustration over the omission. Citations issued to American sailors after the attack do not mention Israel; the monument at Arlington where six of the sailors are buried does not mention Israel. Survivors feel the United States cares more about appeasing Israel than it does about honoring the American sailors who fought and died.
Al-Jazeera has proven in their Bird's Eye View program that the Gaza Hospital Attack was done by Israel. It will not be the first time Israel did a False Flag and certainly not the last. May Allah protect us all from Israel's treachery. A'meen.
Let's pay attention to our own - FBI's Director Christopher Wray sounding the alarms:
Threats in the U.S. have been rising, since Hamas invaded Israel a week ago, FBI Director Christopher Wray and FBI officials said Sunday in a rare phone briefing for reporters.
"The threat is very much ongoing and in fact, the threat picture continues to evolve," Wray said. "Here in the U.S., we cannot and do not discount the possibility that Hamas or other foreign terrorist organizations could exploit the conflict to call on their supporters to conduct attacks on our own soil."
In October 2020, FBI and the Department of Justice announced the arrest of 6 Michigan Militia members thus thwarting an elaborate plot to kidnap Michigan's governor. Intercept has to say this about Manufactured Terrorism:
As with the prosecutions of more than 350 international terrorism defendants caught in post-9/11 FBI terrorism stings, in which agents or informants provide encouragement and weapons for criminal plots, questions of entrapment quickly emerged in the Wolverine Watchmen case. The FBI had used at least a dozen informants and several undercover agents to build the case. One of the group’s key members, known as “Big Dan,” was an FBI informant. Another, an apparent explosives expert whose role was critical to the alleged kidnapping plan, was in fact an FBI undercover agent.
“There’s nothing wrong with using confidential sources to help facilitate or move along an investigation, but it becomes really dicey when, in a case like this one, there are nearly as many informants as there are defendants,” Michael Sherwin, the former deputy attorney general for national security during the Trump administration, told The Intercept. “That’s a huge red flag, making you wonder if this is one of those cases that are manufactured to increase stats.”
Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth have proven beyond any doubt that the collapse of the World Trade Center's towers on 9/11/01 was caused by controlled demolition.
Summary of all this:
It's okay to verify any news item from multiple news sources. It's okay to second guess any narrative, thrust at you, whether it comes from Israel or your own government. Do your independent research to analyze and validate an event. It's okay to be smart and not be a sheeple!
