It’s been clear for quite some time now that Big Tech company Google is in the pocket for the progressive agenda, however, the depths the corporation is willing to go in order to push the official left-wing narrative, especially when it comes to the truth about Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, is more than a little appalling. In fact, it’s down right disturbing. You’ll see what I mean in just a moment. Brace yourself.
According to the Daily Wire, the world’s largest and most popularly used search engine, Google, is now ensuring that any sort of article that tells the unvarnished truth about the acts of terrorism carried out by Hamas are buried deep in their search results.
For example, if you were to get on Google and type “Hamas rapes women” before revealing a huge lot of search results describing sickening sexual assaults and war crimes in detail, but it’s what comes before that information that has people talking.
There will be a large section of text that says, “What did Hamas do to women in Israel?”
Rather than detailing all of the actual crimes that were done to women in the area, it said, “Hamas on Monday released two elderly Israeli women held hostage in Gaza.”

The apparent bias and misinformation comes in the form of a section labeled “People also ask,” which redirects users from what they had searched to something else entirely, then shoves an answer in their face without the need to click any link — likely causing many people to simply accept the answer instead of reading full articles from search results.
If you ask, “Does palestine support hamas,” Google will use another feature, called “featured snippet,” to bury its own search results and instead put a paragraph in large font at the top telling you, “Just 27 percent of respondents selected Hamas as their preferred party.”
The search giant says it uses snippets to “help people more easily discover what they’re seeking.”
“Google’s search results sometimes show listings where the snippet describing a page comes before a link to a page,” it goes on to explain. “We display featured snippets when our systems determine this format will help people more easily discover what they’re seeking.”
But the “featured snippet” from Foreign Affairs is dramatically different than the picture that users would get by clicking on the first search result — which they would be more likely to do if the “snippet” weren’t placed on top. The first result, a column in The Hill, says that not only did Hamas beat the other political party Fatah in the most recent election in 2006, but that according to recent polls, “If new presidential elections were held with two candidates, Fatah’s Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas’s Ismail Haniyeh, … Haniyeh would win in a landslide with 58 percent.”
It then goes on to state that 64 percent of the folks living in Gaza would back the Hamas candidate and that even Palestinians who might not be on board with all of the beliefs of Hamas, it’s not due to their disagreeing with the group’s rampant anti-Semitism or acts of terrorism it has carried out against the nation of Israel.
In fact, the results from the poll reveal that 70 percent of Palestinians are against a two-state solution, which is where both a Palestinian state and a Jewish state would exist side-by-side. An even greater number, 76 percent to 21 percent are against a one state solution which means two sides enjoying equal rights.
The vast majority of those who responded to the survey say that the best solution is “armed conflict.” And this is the Palestinian people, folks. The ones the left is constantly championing as freedom fighters seeking to have their own state. That’s not it at all, because their religion demands they bring an end to the existence of the “People of the Book.” That means Jews. And Christians too.
The Daily Wire also reported that if you enter a search for topics that are related to Israel and Hamas, they put in the “People also ask” section of the search engine, “Does Hamas use human shields?” It then proceeds to give a rather vague non-answer that pulls information from an article published by The Guardian that says, “Israel has cited what it says are numerous examples of Hamas using human shields as a tactic.”
In other words, it doesn’t provide you with an answer, just says that’s what Israel claims, sort of painting up what we know to be a genuine fact as something cooked up by the Jewish state. No bias there, right?
“Then it makes it seem like Israel does the same thing or worse, stating it as a fact instead of an allegation, and pulling from a Palestinian activist group instead of a media outlet. “Since 2000, [Defense for Children International Palestine] has documented at least 31 cases involving Palestinian children being used as human shields by the Israeli army,” the report revealed.
This is why it’s critical for people to learn how to do their own research and once you find a few good sources of information, stick to them. Don’t just believe everything they say, but trust and verify.
